Honest Trailers Super Mario Bros

Ah, video game movies. When Mortal Kombat is your high watermark, you know it’s bad. This week, after a break to celebrate SDCC, the gang at Screen Junkies were back at work giving us another Honest Trailer… The first, and somehow not worst (though they tried) video game movie of all time… Super Mario Bros.

Watch the Honest Trailer of Super Mario Bros. below.

In Memoriam: Film and TV Entertainers

As 2014 comes to a close, we take a moment at Geeks Of Doom to remember all the fallen entertainment figures in film and television who left us this year. This year, we gave a farewell to a large array of heavyweights, cult heroes, pioneering figures, and sentimental favorites who were among those who have passed on in a physical sense, but leaving the memories, the ones that they made in the past and the ones each of their fans have in regards to them.

A Look At The ‘Roger Rabbit’ Voiced By Pee-Wee Herman You Didn’t Know Existed (Video)

Early Who Framed Roger Rabbit Image

As you know, a lot goes into making a movie. Many of them are developed for many years, seeing various writers and directors and other talent come and go as the best strategy for making the movie is figured out.

1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit was no different. Directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring the late Bob Hoskins, the movie would go on to become an unforgettable fusion of live-action film noir and cartoon comedy. But Disney was trying to make the movie happen years before that destiny was realized. They acquired the rights to the Gary K. Wolf novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? not long after its publication in 1981, and at one point in 1983 had an adaptation in the works with Paul Reubens as Roger Rabbit (around the time he was becoming known as Pee-Wee Herman).

You can see a behind-the-scenes video of this very different version of Roger Rabbit below.

Disney In Depth: Farewell, Valiant – Remembering Bob Hoskins

After many years I recently revisited the landmark film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, an inventive and monumental movie that ushered in a new era of animation. Sadly and quite coincidental based on timing, Bob Hoskins, its star, passed away within days of me re-watching this modern masterpiece. Hoskins’ role lent the comedy its soul and substance and will always be cherished. We at Geeks of Doom mourn his loss, not only for his impact in film, but also for how much he influenced Roger Rabbit.

Bob Hoskins, who passed away from pneumonia on April 29, 2014 at the age of 71, had been suffering from Parkinson’s. Hoskins left the acting profession after being diagnosed a few years ago. Over his career that spanned more than four decades, he provided film with numerous memorable characters. Perhaps his best role was as Eddie Valiant. We depart the detective character’s office with a closed case and much nostalgia in tow.

Bob Hoskins Image

Yesterday we shared a quick post with a video showing off what 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit looked like while filming as compared to the finished movie. It’s fun to see, and gives fans who haven’t seen it new appreciation of the work Bob Hoskins did in that movie. Today, just like that, Hoskins is gone.

It was confirmed earlier today that the British actor has passed away after a battle with pneumonia. His family released a statement saying he died peacefully and surrounded by his loved ones. He was 71 years of age.

Bob Hoskins In Who Framed Roger Rabbit

If you’ve never seen a behind the scenes making of video for Robert Zemeckis‘s 1988 live-action/animated hybrid classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit then the video below is a real treat.

The video shows star Bob Hoskins filming scenes for his character’s visit to Toontown, with a comparison look at the scenes in the finished movie. Now…this may comes as a bit of a shock to some of you, but none of the animated characters were actually physically there with Hoskins when the scenes were filmed. Nothing will ever be the same, I know. It’s truly fascinating to see Hoskins work with nothing but a blue screen, a couple of focal points when necessary, and a little assistance here and there, and seeing it gives you a brand new appreciation for his performance.

Snow White And The Huntsman

Universal Pictures’s epic fantasy-adventure Snow White & The Huntsman isn’t due in theaters until next summer, but the studio has wasted no time in getting the advance hype train a-rollin’.

‘The Departed’ Star Ray Winstone Set To Play Final Dwarf In ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’

Just yesterday we found ourselves wondering if the new Universal Pictures take on the Snow White fairy tale, titled Snow White and the Huntsman, could cast known actors in all seven dwarf roles.

The reports yesterday were that Ian McShane (Deadwood, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) had been cast as the lead dwarf, Caesar, and that Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Enemy at the Gates), Eddie Izzard (Shadow of the Vampire, Cars 2), Toby Jones (Harry Potter, Captain America: The First Avenger), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire, Snatch), and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes, V for Vendetta) were all in talks for other dwarf roles.

This left one more, which has now been filled.

Bob Hoskins, Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard & Toby Jones Cast As Dwarfs In ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’

When looking at the multiple Snow White projects in the works, one might assume that not all of the seven dwarf roles would be filled with a known actor. One or two, maybe, but all seven? Pretty doubtful. But one project looks to be trying to prove that assumption wrong with the announcement of six possible well–known and respected actors taking on dwarf characters.

This particular Snow White project seems to be the biggest of them all (thus far, anyway), and is called Snow White and the Huntsman. The movie already has its stars locked up with The Twilight Saga‘s Kristen Stewart set for the lead, a princess who escapes her evil queen of a stepmother (played by Charlize Theron) with a huntsman who was sent to kill her but ends up joining her and seven dwarven warriors, and training her how to fight instead. The huntsman is will be played by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth.

Which brings us back to the seven dwarfs, who sound like they’ll pass up on being lovable little workers and instead be ready for battle.
