Video ninja Don Draper Says What takes his newest movie mix to the extreme, supercuting “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice with 280 clips pulled from nearly as many flicks. My favorite bit is when Jabba The Hut chimes in with “SOLO” (at the 1:10 mark)! Yours?
If the early trailers for Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel traded more on classic Superman visuals — the midwestern farmhouse, the red cape flickering in the wind, our hero gracefully looping the planet — and less on actual plot points, then this newest trailer, likely the last before the film opens on June 14th, trends in the opposite direction, shattering the peace with an ominous ultimatum from the film’s heavy, General Zod (Michael Shannon). Leavened with teasing flashes of Kryptonian tech, superhuman brawling, and heat vision, it reveals a grittier, more physical take on the franchise, with villains and challenges to match (thank you, Christopher Nolan). Of note here are the scale (HUGE) and the speed (FAST), both of which look unprecedented for a Superman film.
Care of our sister site, BunnySlippers.com, we present this adorable supercut of bunnies in film. Included in the mix are some obvious selections — Roger Rabbit, Thumper, Harvey — and an appearance by our favorite actor, Val Fucking Kilmer.
The application of color blocks – steady, deliberate, and measured – lends the clip a vibrant, even hypnotic, eye-candy quality (that’s a real mouthful, yes?), all of which stands in contrast to the feed’s raw, unnarrated state.
Peep the shirt itself (and two others, the ’70s and ’80s Movie Alphabets, rendered in the same style) both here and below.

Floating around on the Internet this week: word of a 5-day, all-inclusive cruise curated by sweater rock all-stars, Weezer!
We. Kid. You. Not. Direct from the source:
Weezer is hitting the open seas. It’s going to be our own floating music festival on a cruise ship. Weezer will perform on the outdoor Lido deck and in the inside theater. All of the bands will be performing in stages around the ship, festival style, so you can catch any or all of them during the entire trip to Cozumel and back.
