For Halloween 2020, animator Lawrence Becker created a stop-motion short featuring a miniature Will Smith carving a pumpkin with a tiny sword. This behind-the-scenes look at how he made it is just as awesome as the animation itself. Also, his stop-motion Danny Devito Penguin pumpkin would make Tim Burton proud.
Awesome Will Smith
We’re used to hearing the theme from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as a hip hop song. But musician Stefan Murphy of The Mighty Stef gave it a whole different sound, as a solemn Irish folk song that will have you weeping into your glass of Jameson’s by the time it’s over.
After teaming up for the wild and hilarious Men in Black, Will Smith and director Barry Sonnenfeld thought maybe they could make magic in the Wild Wild West. Instead, they just made a wild wild mess. Screen Junkies roasts the hell out of this 1999 dud, which fortunately was not an indicator of the quality of anyone’s future projects.
After positively freaking out the Internet with Will Smith’s blue-faced genie, the first full trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin looks far more entertaining than we first thought, and yes, it preserves the music that made the animated version a classic.
Remix magician marioboy22601 figured out that the theme songs of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Thomas & Friends meld together perfectly, resulting in an unlikely marriage that’s as delightful as peanut butter and bacon on a burger. Seriously, try that. It’s delicious.
