Nice idea to promote the latest Edgar Wright movie Scott Pilgrim vs the world. I’m not sure you learn anything more about the film than you would from a conventional trailer, but it feels in keeping with the movie premise and made me play along and interact. Which is more than half the battle. Nice here.

Working as a developer at Vimeo, Casey became interested in using the internet as a tool for crowdsourcing user content.
Star Wars Uncut is the product of 2 years of hard work for Casey who wanted to test the appetite for creating a crowd sourced movie.
Rather than create a film from scratch Casey broke the first Star Wars film down into 15 second segments and asked the general public to make their own favourite segment of the film. The results are in and the final edit is now available to view online.
If you love Be kind Rewind you’ll love this. Very lo-fi but none the less entertaining.
They say New York never sleeps, but where else in the world would someone race across town at 5am at 100mph all for a bit of romance -Paris of course. C’etait un Rendez-vous is a film by Claude Lelouch’s made in 1976 and translates as ‘It was a date’. The ending may be a bit cheesy, but if you ever wanted to race across a cities empty streets you’ll forgive it. Put your headphones on, turn up the sound and enjoy.
The most surreal thing I’ve seen since…last week. Kids re-enacting Scarface for a school play. The video has hit almost 3 million views in just over 48 hours, which makes it one of the fastest growing if not the fastest online release of all time. However, it’s not come without controversy, with comments and opinions divided over the subject matter.
Kids re-enacting drug use and killing. Discuss.
The world’s first interactive horror movie. Nice work from the people at 13th street.
On the launch date of Tim Burton’s Alice film i thought i’d share with you the original Alice in Wonderland which was shot over 100 years ago. Unlike Burton’s 2 hour cg rampage. The original 1903 version was only 12 minutes long and thanks to the BFi 8 minutes of the film gave been restored for our viewing pleasure.
Found via the fab Retronaut.
Absolutely genius bit of work from The Sweden. Movie fun here.
This weekend saw the release of the new adidas star wars collection? The teaser ad has a cool slick party vibe, ala adidas’ house party, with of course the obligatory David Beckham shot. Sneaker fans are invited to visit the adidas facebook page to find out release info etc, etc, yawn.
