Doraemon Meets ‘Akira’ In Disturbing 2020 Tokyo Olympics Animation [Video]

Akira Doraemon Olympics

The city of Tokyo won its bid to host the 2020 Olympics this past fall, leading many people, this site included, to draw the parallel between reality and the post-apocalyptic manga and anime feature film Akira, which took place in the run-up to the 2020 Olympic Games in Neo-Tokyo.

The organizers real-life Games in Tokyo have turned to another manga/anime, Doraemon, to help promote the Olympics. The famous robot cat is an ambassador for the 2020 Games. With that in mind, animator Aleix Pitarch has combined Akira, Doraemon and the Olympics in a tribute video. It's...harrowing.

Stan Lee Wishes His ‘Friend’ Bob Kane Was Still Alive So He Could Rub His Face In Marvel’s Movie Success

Stan Lee and Bob Kane, bros

On the off chance that you want to kick off your weekend by going into a blinding rage, I have some good news! Stan "The Man" Lee, one of the founding fathers of Marvel Comics and the co-creator of characters like Spider-Man and Thor, recently did an interview with Bloomberg Television where he said the phrase "I wish my friend Bob Kane were still with us — he’s the fellow who created Batman," a collection of words that I do not understand.

Unfortunately, the report transcribing the quote did not mention whether Lee was rolling his eyes and making a wanking motion while he said this, so we're forced to assume he was sincere.

Awesome Alternate ‘Gravity’ Scene Makes The Movie Even More Super [Video]

Gravity movie poster

 

I've seen a lot of movies with alternate endings over the years -- like the depressing original finish to Army of Darkness or that bonkers version of Die Hard With a Vengeance where John McClane spins an actual rocket launcher around on a table while riddling Jeremy Irons -- and to be honest, I usually don't think they add much to the film. They're an interesting look into an alternate universe, sure, but I almost always prefer the final product.

Today, however, I saw an alternate opening to last year's smash hit special effects blockbuster Gravity uploaded to YouTube by user Krishna Shenoi, and I have to admit that it changes the entire tone of the film to something I think I'd really like. Check below and see for yourself!

‘The Wolf Among Us’ Episode 3 Trailer Promises Even More Wolf-y Intrigue [Video]

Fables The Wolf Among Us 3 Trailer
Telltale Games

So far, the Telltale Games Fables prequel game, The Wolf Among Us has delivered on its promise of an atmospheric, intrigue-filled noir set in Fabletown, U.S.A.

The trailer for the third of the game's episodes, titled "A Crooked Mile," looks like that trend will continue with more mysteries, intense interrogations, and characters saying portentous, vague things at every turn. Oh, and Bigby Wolf continues to take (and dish out) a good many beatings along the way. Check out the trailer (which includes spoilers for the previous two episodes) after the jump!

Movie Spider-Man Has A Dance-Off With Strange Baby Spider-Man In An Ad For Water [Video]

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Evian ad screenshot

We've known for a while that the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was going to feature Electro, the Rhino and the Green Goblin, but I think I speak for all true fans of the web-slinger when I say that we've been waiting for months for the answer to a far more important question. Sure, Spidey's going to fight super-villains, but will he also be confronted with a horrifyingly misshapen baby version of himself that he will inexplicably battle via dance-off?

Well, now we know: Yes. Yes he does. I mean, it might not happen in the movie, but it's definitely what happens in an ad for Evian bottled water, which is somehow even stranger. Watch and be mystified below.
