LEGOs make just about everything in life a little bit better. Something about those creative little buidling blocks brings out all sorts of awesome projects from fans the world over. Crafting incredible movie trailers out of LEGO pieces is nothing new, but they are always fun and amazing to watch. Today sees a recreation of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer in brick form, and it's truly impressive to see.

With The Avengers making waves all across Hollywood, we have seen what comic books can actually do for cinema. Sure, we had X-Men already, but with The Avengers, Marvel finally created a universe in movies like the one they have in comics. Now the question is, how do we keep this going? How do we keep comic books fresh? Well the answer is simple, keep telling more in-depth stories and expanding the universe. The answer could be in movies, but perhaps video games or television has a better standing ground? Here are some comic book events that would make for great story telling, but will probably never happen (at least not any time soon).
Back when Star Wars first came out it took to the comic book world in order to bring more adventures to a rabid fan base. Marvel handled the comic duties at the time but in the years since Dark Horse Comics have dutifully carried the franchise through some of the most memorable comic events for the Star Wars mythos. Now, the galaxy far, far away is coming back home to Marvel.
Movie buffs can be a strange group some times and we're among the most nitpicky, even when it comes to movies we love so much. Take Titanic for example. The recent re-release of the film sparked an old debate about how Jack (DiCaprio) could have lived and there was enough room on the "raft" for both of them. It sounds like James Cameron has had enough of the debate and is bringing in the Mythbusters crew to settle it once and for all.
