Two years ago, io9's own Garrison Dean proved that Expendables 2 was the most important movie of summer 2012. (Yes, more important than Avengers.) Because America. And explosions. Now Dean is back, with a trailer that shows how Expendables 3 will help balance out the lingering sweetness of your Frozen addiction.
The opening credits would probably look something like this. We're so excited about the return of Game of Thrones on Sunday, we asked our friend Garrison Dean to imagine what the show would look like if it was a classic 1970s-1980s sitcom. But what he came up with was way more insane than we ever expected.
This is Garrison Dean, io9's resident viscount of photoshopperie, reporting in. Much like your significant other, I've been distant, busy with work, and just not fulfilling your needs. But it's Valentine's Day! And on Valentine's Day, I can make up for all my shortcomings and patch our fragile relationship with a…
Come on, we've got a hard R new Conan film coming out with plenty of red band footage online. Did you think I wasn't going to do a trailer?
There will come a day in the future where humanity wises up and realizes the brilliance of Sir Michael Bay. I only hope I'm alive to witness it. Remember: nothing succeeds likes excess.
Did you miss io9's 1980s-style Firefly intro, (now with more awesome), or Simon Tam's new TV-doctor drama? Don't worry — we've got the best of 2010's original video content, tributes, and the most deranged collection of Found Footage right here.
Last week Annalee told me that io9 was going to devote a week to "Disasters", and wondered if I'd like to do something special. Disaster being my "thing," I said yes.
Well friends, let's do it to it, shall we? ON TO DISASTER!!! As always click to enlarge.
Welcome Children to the weekly (when I get to it) spooky recap of this week in io9. Enter if you have the guts to face the terror that is...
For some reason, the Buenos Aires branch of elite ad company Young & Rubicam figured that the best way to advertise condoms . . . is with images of a burning apocalypse? We've got the full (mildly NSFW) ad below.
People complained that we left Simon Tam out of our 1980s-style Firefly opening credits. You failed to realize: That was Firefly's second-season intro. By then, Sean Maher had cashed in on his unbelievable popularity, with a spin-off. Check it out.
Joss Whedon's Firefly was awesome, but its title sequence really didn't sell the show. What Firefly really needed was a kick-ass, old-school, synth-happy, guitar-solo, Yay Spaceships, 1980s-style intro credit sequence. And here it is. Joss, you can thank me later.
This white, foamy oil slick appears almost beautiful in this satellite image — but it's set to become the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The Coast Guard is considering setting it on fire to save the environment.
Happy Easter all. Thought I'd take the short holiday to bring you all brand new fresh disaster!!! Maybe I put my all easter eggs in one basket here, but it's a good basket.
When io9 asked me if I could break away from my busy schedule of being awesome and create some disastrous Valentines . . . How could I say no? I love you all, and dammit you deserve it!!!
Or, at least, it is when they interview moi for a pleasant fluff piece about fan-created trailers. Annalee can have the NY Times. USA Today had color before it was cool.
Well hello there everyone. The minion is doing well and she gave me a little break from fatherhood to bring you all a new disaster for the new year.
Hello friends. Over the past few months I've been telling you what was a disaster, now the time has come for you to pick your own.
So, I had done a couple of Disasters for you when I woke up Saturday morning to an apartment with no power. So I got some breakfast and went record shopping.
Hello all. I'm sorry I haven't been getting this to you as often, but please enjoy today's Disaster.
