News - As Seen on the Web
A round-up of the best, funniest and weirdest things we could find on the web from the last week in film...
Welcome back to another weekly dose of Screenrush Scrapbook, where we pool together all of the interesting and wacky stuff we've seen on the interwebs over the last week....
First off, we came across a genius little meme involving a few otters that look rather suspiciously like Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock fame:
And in a similar but nonetheless hilarious vein... David Mitchell is a koala. Seriously, he is:
Fans of the hugely successful zombie drama The Walking Dead will enjoy these best memes from season two from over on BuzzFeed. Big spoiler alerts however, so we're afraid you'll have to click that link yourself!
Speaking of Christopher Nolan's Inception, we don't know about you, but we had to watch it a couple of times to get out heads around the whole thing. Thankfully now we can just go on http://www.inception-explained.com/!
To tie in with the release of Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists this week, magazine Little White Lies organised a public creative brief asking readers to submit their own 'plasti-scenes', recreating iconic movie scenes using modelling clay:
We took renewed pleasure in this year old interview with the screenwriter of Fast Five by reputable and totally serious news network The Onion. If you've never seen it before we don't wish to give anything away, but we'll say that he's extremely clever for his age:
Bringing up Christoper Nolan one last time, this time for his Batman epic The Dark Knight. But what if he hadn't written it with his brother Jonathan, and Michael Bay, director of Transformers had written it instead?
Coming all the way from Walthamstow's Unofficial Tourist Board Facebook page, a photo album dedicated to celebrities that look like mattresses. This picture featuring Mickey Rourke of The Wrestler fame:
With Mad Men returning to US TV on Sunday after 17 agonising months, here are some of our favourite pieces of the thousands that have cropped up online over the last week:
For starters, here's our catch-up feature on the last few seasons of Mad Men, and where we might be going from season four's shocking finale.
Over on The New York Times, they have an excellent and lengthy interview with creator Matthew Weiner and several cast members. Very funny and worth a watch if you have the time. Which you clearly do if you've made it this far.
DenOfGeek have done a great piece on what they'd like to see from season five of the show.
This just in though... Renowned Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar is not dead. We repeat, NOT dead. An unfounded rumour very quickly spread across the Twittersphere (chalk it up to regular Friday Twitter madness) that the famous director of The Skin I Live In had passed away, and the internet recently very nearly imploded. We can safely say that he's alive and well (we think!)
