1:6 Blade II Figure

1:6 Blade II Figure

Hot Toys’ 1:6 Blade II figure is fantastically accurate, from the head sculpt of Wesley Snipes to the costume; it also packs a veritable arsenal, with glaives, stakes, bombs, and guns.

Rocky: Undisputed Collection

Yo, Adrian x 6: the champ comes to Blu-ray with Rocky: The Undisputed Collection; the seven disc set includes Rocky 1-5 + Balboa and a bonus disc packed with trailers and featurettes.

Trailer: Prince of Persia

Trailer: Prince of Persia

We’re always wary of game-to-movies, but we like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’s first trailer; there are wisps of PotC here, appropriate as it’s a Bruckheimer & Disney production.

Movie Trailer: Love

Movie Trailer: Love

Featuring music from and to be released with Angels & Airwaves’ third album, Love is a full-length, visually stunning sci-fi film about a man trapped on the International Space Station.

Movie Narrative Charts

Movie Narrative Charts

xkcd untangles convoluted Hollywood plotlines into organized Movie Narrative Charts; LotR, Jurassic Park, and Star Wars all become semi-coherent, but Primer still remains indecipherable.

Video: Numbers In Movies

Video: Numbers In Movies

No, CollegeHumor’s Movies by the Numbers isn’t how little Hollywood producers learn to count; it remixes films with numbers in their titles, forming a continuous line from 1 to 50.

Trailer #2: The Road

Trailer #2: The Road

In theaters 11/25/09, The Road’s second trailer is light on new revelations but still delivers; we catch glimpses of more action sequences as well as heartening father and son dialog.

Movie Trailer: Invictus

A potent mix of sports and history, Invictus is the true story of how Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) and a rugby team captain (Matt Damon) bring political change to South Africa.

Pulp Fiction Audio Mix

Pulp Fiction Audio Mix

Turn your speakers down: this brilliant Pulp Fiction Audio Mix turns sound clips from the movie into a percussive performance a-la Stomp, albeit with slightly more profane instruments.

Movie Trailer: Avatar

Movie Trailer: Avatar

The official domestic trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar is up; a teaser it ain’t, with over three minutes of somewhat weighty dialog, flying Na’Vi, and Sigourney Weaver looking pissed.

Trailer: Smokin’ Aces 2

Trailer: Smokin’ Aces 2

NSFW: we admit that Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball is sexy, somewhat dumb fun, but anyone who liked the original is going to love this new trailer; the prequel arrives on DVD 1/19.

BD: Mel Brooks Collection

BD: Mel Brooks Collection

Three years after the DVD release, The Mel Brooks Collection comes to Blu-ray with one ludicrously schwartz-filled extra: Spaceballs; you’ll get nine total films plus a collectible book.

Official Fight Club T-shirt

Official Fight Club T-shirt

Created with Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk in celebration of the movie’s 10th anniversary, this Fight Club tee is as official (and anarchic) as it gets; also available as a poster here.

Blu-ray: Inglourious Basterds

Blu-ray: Inglourious Basterds

Inglourious Basterds’ not-so-merry band of Nazi hunters comes to Blu-ray 12/15; it includes a roundtable with Quentin Tarantino, gag reel, alternate scenes and a digital copy.

Star Trek Replica Set

Star Trek Replica Set

Due out 11/17/09, the Star Trek Limited Edition Replica Gift Set not only includes the three Blu-ray discs + digital copy of the regular set, but a solid metal, 8.5″ replica of the USS Enterprise.

V: First 8 Minutes

V: First 8 Minutes

The acting is classic low-budget disaster movie, but for sci-fi fans there’s no ignoring city-sized alien spaceships: watch the first eight minutes of ABC’s reimagined sci-fi series, V.

DVD: Almost The Truth

DVD: Almost The Truth

From lumberjacks to knights, Monty Python: Almost The Truth squeezes 40 years into 8 hours; it interviews all five living members plus modern comedians like Jimmy Fallon and Seth Green.

Teaser: Season of the Witch

Teaser: Season of the Witch

It may be called Season of the Witch, but this teaser (which shows a shaggy, medieval Nick Cage opposite Ron Perlman) screams zombie-flick: how do we know? “Cut off the head!”

Blu-ray: Fight Club

Blu-ray: Fight Club

Tyler Durden’s Fight Club comes to Blu-ray 11/17; in addition to 1080p video and DTS-HD 5.1 sound, it includes an Ed Norton interview, deleted scenes and four audio commentaries.

Astro Boy v. Peacekeeper

Astro Boy v. Peacekeeper

We enjoyed the Arena Battle clip, but this Astro Boy vs. Peacekeeper video gives us exactly what we want: a giant robot on not-so-giant robot, city-leveling slugfest (with butt guns).

AK 100: Akira Kurosawa

AK 100: Akira Kurosawa

While Akira Kurosawa’s later works are an acquired taste, there’s no denying how badass Rashomon and Seven Samurai were; AK 100 collects all 25 films of his career on 25 DVDs.

Google Wave x Pulp Fiction

Google Wave x Pulp Fiction

NSFW: Still can’t wrap your noggin’ around Google Wave? This Pulp Fiction mashup by Joe Sabia should “bang” some sense into your head; it’s basically chat with 72 point font and pictures.

Edge of Darkness

Edge of Darkness

Mel Gibson is in full bad-ass form in Edge of Darkness, a suspense/thriller about a father who loses his daughter; in theaters 01/29/10, it’s a bit of Payback mixed with Conspiracy Theory.
