An extended trailer has been posted on the official Godzilla YouTube channel, and it’s pretty great. For the spoiler-averse, there’s actually even less spoilery stuff than the international trailer — what we see is just more from the same few scenes we’ve already glimpsed in earlier trailers. More Bryan Cranston, a little more Ken Watanabe, a tiny bit more Aaron Taylor-Johnson…
Godzilla returns to theaters courtesy director Gareth Edwards (and Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures) on May 16, 2014.

Luc Besson specializes in ridiculous action movies, so while there’s a lot of conceptual potential here, the Sherlocky (mind palace-esque) bits in the trailer make me feel like the actual movie will probably make me roll my eyes a lot. Even so, it looks pretty fun.
I do really wish filmmakers could let women badasses just be a badass more often without ever resorting to the using-their-feminine-wiles cliché… sigh
Here’s the synopsis:
Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, 2069 AD, works as a drug mule for the mob. The drug she inadvertently takes goes into her system, changing her into a metahuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts.
Scarlett Johannson and Morgan Freeman stars in the Luc Besson flick, which hits theaters on August 8, 2014.

Because of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer and working on #900 over the last week, I decided to draw Donatello (because he’s the best) for the Patreon backers’ Activity Stream… and then I drew Raphael (because he’s cool but rude)… and by that point I figured I should probably draw all of them, so Michelangelo went up there last night, and here’s Leonardo for everybody to see.
I’m not sure if I’ll draw more characters from the Turtleverse (maybe if enough people ask nicely), but I’ll definitely draw more stuff and share them with you guys either here or there. Feel free to use this as a social media avatar or anything else non-commercial. (I’m using Donatello as my own Twitter avatar lately!)

The Verge’s Bryan Bishop has posted a terrific interview with Frank Pavich about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s unproduced Dune. The interest in this project since Pavich’s documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune popped up has been awesome. I, for one, am dying for a giant, coffee table book loaded with pictures. (Not that one has been announced, but… hopefully someone will get the idea.)
Feast your eyes on this lovely piece by Chris Foss, and click through to the article at The Verge for the many, many more pictures:
