Mad Max “Savage Road” Story Trailer

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Just to clarify, this is a story trailer for the upcoming Mad Max video game, and “Savage Road” is just the name of the trailer, not the subtitle of the game, although it really should be.

KUNG FURY Full Movie

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

KUNG FURY has officially launched, and it’s available to watch free on YouTube. It’s only around 30 minutes long, and because of that the pacing is a bit rushed, but regardless it’s pure entertainment the entire run time.

NERF – Rebelle Secrets And Spies Secret Shot Blaster

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Secret Shot 1

The NERF Rebelle line is a line of NERF blasters for girls. One of the more interesting blasters in the line is the ‘Secrets and Spies’ Secret Shot Blaster. Designed to look like a “fashionable bag”, it unfolds into a 4-shot blaster. It reminds me of a Magpul FMG-9, with a bit of a P90 influence. Change it into a briefcase or something similar, color it black with orange accents, and it would be pretty good for boys as well.

Secret Shot 2

It can be bought most places where NERF guns are sold.

Point Break Is Getting A Remake

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015


I didn’t even hear about this until yesterday.

The synopsis:

In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller “Point Break,” a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways.

Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes.

It’s “inspired” by the original, yet uses the same title.

Comes out this Christmas.

Black Angel

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Roger Christian was a set decorator for Star Wars Episode IV. Christian’s work impressed George Lucas enough that he gave Christian the go ahead to turn his fantasy script into a short film, which would screen before Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The film, titled Black Angel, was only screened in a few cinemas in 1980, and was thought lost until negatives of the film were found and restored.

The film has since been uploaded to YouTube, with a special introduction from the director himself.

Danger 5

Dinosaur World Wide is handling the merchandise for Danger 5, including t-shirts, posters, lobby cards, and more. For those who are unaware, Danger 5 is a parody of the spy genre which stars an international team of special operatives who’s primary goal is to kill Hitler, and disrupt Nazi efforts in the process. The first season was a 60’s take on WWII. The second season is more Cold War-inspired, although, as always, the team’s main goal is to kill Hitler.


Range 15 Movie On Indiegogo

Saturday, May 23rd, 2015


The folks over at Ranger Up and Article 15 clothing have teamed up to form Range 15, and they’re making a movie:

We’re making the military movie you’ve always wanted someone to make: relentless ball busting, guns, explosions, hot chicks, booze, and more guns. We will not dramatically salute each other. We will kill lots of shit, all while using our weapons correctly. Again, there will be hot chicks. Mat will probably sleep with all of them. And I mean that both in the movie and in real life. Seriously, that guy has a real problem. Tim Kennedy may or may not be oiled up in a loin cloth.

They’re looking for funding on Indiegogo, so check out the page for more info:

Check Out Crossbones From The Upcoming Captain America: Civil War

Sunday, May 17th, 2015


With Avengers 2 out, and Ant-Man on the horizon, it’s no surprise to see the work continues on the Marvel Cinematic Universe projects. Such is the case with this early picture of Crossbones from the currently-in-production, yet slated for a May 2016 release, Captain America: Civil War.

Crossbones, one of Captain America’s most iconic arch-nemeses in the comics, can be seen kitted up in gear from various manufacturers, including S&S Precision, Benchmade Knives, Safariland, G-Code, and AustriaAlpin/ITW.

If we didn’t know any better, we’d swear this looks like something our friends at Tactical Pro Shop were involved with, as they often are. We’re looking forward to seeing what other gear pops up, and for the movie in general.

Brutal Doom v20 Official Trailer (NSFW)

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

Brutal Doom is a mod created by SGtMarkIV which adds new weapons, animations, and features to the original Doom games, and, most prominently, includes the addition of loads of excessively gratuitous violence. While the original Doom is no slouch in this regard, with demons, lost of guns, viscera strew about levels, etc., Brutal Doom turns it up to 11. Enemies bleed excessively, their limbs can be individually removed, special execution animations have been added which allow the player to rip apart enemies with their bare hands, and much more.

Brutal Doom v20 will be released on June 5th. It requires you already own a version of classic Doom to work.
