Jack Kirby’s Storyboards for Argo (via io9, h/t @alexsegura)
The big disappointment for me about Argo was that it barely showed Jack Kirby’s contribution to the story of bringing the fake “Lords of Light” movie that the CIA used as a ruse to get the hostages out to life. These storyboards show that, with Kirby’s visuals, the movie-within-a-movie might not have looked so ridiculous at all. And let’s face it, the world would be better off if Iran had a “Science Fiction Land” theme park than nuclear weapons facilities.
Ilsa The She Wolf and it’s sequels, c/o The Life on Mars tumblr.
Things I learned about Ilsa:
She was based somewhat on female concentraion camp guards like Ilse Koch
It inspired Werewolf Women of the SS, the Grindhouse trailer by Rob Zombie.
It was filmed on the set of Hogan’s Heroes.
If you’re not familiar with Ilse:
“Every night she chooses another one of her male prisoners and rapes him; however, due to her insatiable hunger, she gets disappointed when her current victim eventually ejaculates, and promptly has him castrated and put to death. Only an American prisoner, who can withhold ejaculating, manages to use her weakness to his favor.”
@jonathanldavis & @joshacagan star in an infomerical for JON DAVIS GETS A SEX ROBOT, the funniest web series I’ve ever seen (really). Coming soon, brought to you by those guys, Matt Allen, Caleb Wilson and Rob McKittrick.
This is an original production-issued script for the very first 1988 Bruce Willis action-adventure movie, Die Hard.
With thanks to Russell Buckley
Seriously had no idea until this moment that Die Hard was based on a novel. Now, everything is different.
Even more amazing, from wikipedia:Nothing Lasts Forever was originally written as a sequel to The Detective so it could be made into a follow-up film starring Frank Sinatra as Joe Leland. But when Frank Sinatra declined the role, it was then changed into a sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Commando, but when Schwarzenegger turned down the role, the script was retooled in 1988 for the standalone story, Die Hard, which would later become one of the most famous and beloved action films of all time.And the book was inspired by Towering Inferno!

Wong Kar Wai not?
DJANGO UNCHAINED, by favorite print artist, @markenglert. It’s part of a project for the Oscars (literally, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) and Gallery 88. On top is the full widescreen print, the rest of the images are just some of the brilliant details he incorporated. And for more info check out Mark’s Taco Belvedere blog.
