Hey sailor. If it weren’t for the vivid colors, Tim Shumate ‘s designs would be right at home on the arm of a WWII veteran.
Snow White - Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Cinderella - Cinderella
Aurora - Sleeping Beauty
Also available in pink!
Ariel - The Little Mermaid
Spoiler: No, no you can’t. Unless you’re a Dementor. You aren’t a Dementor, are you?
The first Harry Potter novel was published in 1998, the same year the Battle of Hogwarts took place. Hence:
In Greek mythology, the seer Cassandra was cursed so that none would believe her prophecies. Professor Trelawney's great-grandmother's name was Cassandra.
The Mirror of Erised* shows a person's deepest wish. When Dumbledore looked he saw the same thing Harry did; his family happy and reunited.
*Erised is Desire backwards.
Ron Weasley's Patronus is a Jack Russell terrier, which have been known to chase otters.
With all this foreshadowing, linguists must never get to be surprised.
Frodo Baggins - Lord of the Rings
Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games
Bran Stark - Game of Thrones*
*In the books, it is a three-eyed crow that appears to Bran instead of a raven.
Philip J. Fry - Futurama
At least according to Hard Sci-Fi Movies .
20th Century Fox
Based on the most recent plot leaks. Bleeding Cool got their hands on a copy of the character biographies being used in open casting calls so let the rampant speculation begin!
Thomas: has grown up without a father's influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn't have the strongest sense of himself. Despite this he smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can't take life too seriously.
Young Lando Calrissian
Assuming JJ Abrams chooses to tweak over thirty years of expanded universe lore instead of throwing it out the airlock, Lando's personality lends itself to a childhood without a father. By the time he reached Cloud City, Calrissian had rewritten his own history so frequently even the Empire couldn't fully separate fact from fiction. His take on life is very blasé but he's shown courage if the occasion calls for it.
Superheroes are assholes.
That time everyone flew off without him.
That time Green Lantern lived because public team killing is bad press.
That time Superman's stupidity was physically painful.
That time when The Flash nearly incinerated Alfred with incompetence.
Let’s look at the facts, shall we?
Let's start with the obvious. He's insanely good looking in period clothes.
He looks dashing rowing you across the lake at sunset.

All the while reciting thinly veiled sex poetry because SWOON.
Who was that guy? SPOILERS AHEAD!
Marvel Studios has a storied history of capping off the credits to their movies with scenes that tantalizingly tease what's coming up in their next movies, and the post-credits scene at the end of Thor: The Dark World just may be the strangest — and most important — one yet. (Warning: The rest of this post contains SPOILERS, not just for Thor: The Dark World, but for Guardians of the Galaxy, and possibly even Avengers 3!)
In the scene, Asgardian warriors Sif (Jaimie Alexander) and Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) deliver what appears to be a small box that emits a red glow to a man with a white shock of hair who calls himself the Collector, and is played with eccentric flair by Benicio Del Toro. The box appears to contain what's left of the Aether, the universe-darkening MacGuffin that so vexed Thor throughout the preceding film. But Sif and Volstagg call it an "infinity stone" instead, and when they leave, the Collector says ominously, "One down, five to go." (There's a second scene that came at the very end of the Thor: The Dark World credits, but that mostly involved Thor and Jane Foster kissing. No mystery there!)
We already know that Del Toro will play the Collector in next summer's Guardians of the Galaxy — featuring the strangest comic book movie cast ever. But maybe we should start with the obvious question first:
So who is the Collector, anyway?
His name is Taneleer Tivan, and he is one of 13 Elders of the Universe. Each Elder is the last of their respective species, all originating from ancient races that populated the galaxy in its infancy after the Big Bang and each having achieved immortality via various means. Because the universe really loves to elevate bipedal humanoids to sentient status.
Is there anything “Texts From Last Night” doesn’t make better? The person behind Texts From Young Justice doesn’t think so.
Daleks and Gallifrey and Bad Wolf, oh my!
Video footage is here! You are not prepared.
The trailer was inadvertently posted on the BBC Latin America Facebook page. It was up for approximately 30 minutes before being taken down. After initial attempts to shut down any coverage, the official UK site has since posted the footage itself.
We finally get to see the last great Time War.
Including impressive shots of Gallifrey!
And whatever terrible decision the Doctor had to make.
And the Internet responds accordingly.
And then — because this is the Internet — the inevitable happened.
The Walking Dead needs to up their zombie name game. Come on guys, giving them cute nicknames won’t make them any less terrifying. We all know what’s going on here.
By far the most prevalent word used to describe the undead in the show.
What they call zombies that — for plot reasons — are capable of playing dead until the jump moment.
Shakespeare is sexy. The photo — uncovered by Tor — is from Stewart’s run as Oberon in the 1977 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream .
All these years, Captain Picard was holding out on us.
Of course, Sir Patrick believes one stage actor outshone his perfection.
You can see the whole interview with Sir Patrick and Sir Ian over here.
But we'll let you be the judge.
Evil isn’t born, it’s made.
From the press release:
From Disney comes "Maleficent"—the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty." A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well.
Growing up is for other generations.
Childhood: Parents bitch at you to turn that damn music down before you blow your eardrums.
"Adulthood": Smart phone passive aggressively reminds you to turn that damn music down before you blow your eardrums.
Childhood: Parents run the vacuum, all you have to do is get your toys off the floor.
Post-Childhood: The Roomba runs automatically (just make sure you pick up your ducks).
In fact the lastest Roomba models are so smart the even dock and recharge on their own.
So does Hollywood just think this is how ladies casually stand about?
Something about Tris in the new Divergent poster seems familiar.
Is it the penchant for all black?
No, that's not it.
The dystopian young adult theme?
No, that's not it either.
So much more personal than the traditional red and white. Artist Jonathan Jo figured each Pokemon was unique and needed a home to reflect their personalities.
Mega Charizard X
After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Hey there little buddy.
Wait a tick, you look familiar.
This caterpillar's Iron Man cosplay is amazing.
Wow, I bet it took eons to evolve like that! Such commitment to the craft!
Hopefully. What would you do if you found a secret nightmare door hidden in your house?
According to TwoBiteBrownie, the family moved into a house about a year ago. The previous owners built the house in the early part of the 2000s, and moved to India two years ago. The picture below is of a bedroom in the house.
During a recent bout of roughhousing with their little brother, Brownie pushed him into the shelf. When he fell, he pulled out the bookshelf with him, revealing a door behind what the family had assumed to be built-in shelves.
