When Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't busy playing cops and pimping his HitRECordJoe empire, he clearly spends a lot of time studying the arts. Because, my friends, you don't just learn the lyrics to R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)" overnight. I speak from experience. Hit the jump to watch JGL make sweet, dirty aural love to an audience at OSU with his guitar and the R&B stylings of Mr. Robert Sylvester Kelly.
· Dig these Rango clips dubbed over with Rum Diary dialogue. Suddenly, the discordant whizzbang of the latter film seems like a perfect fit when articulated by Rango's CGI cast. Next, let's overdub Don Juan DeMarco with dialogue from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Faye Dunaway gets the Keith Richards lines, obvs. Click through for that and more of Buzz Break.

In addition to giving the Gaddafi assassination the ol' Taiwanese 'toon treatment, the good folks at Next Media Animation have processed the recent Avengers trailer through their kooky CG filters. The result? One and a half minutes of hilarious superhero (and gyrating ScarJo) action that imagines the titular crime fighters are called to assemble to battle the evil, cell phone-hacking, nude pic-distributing Loki. There's no way the actual movie will be this entertaining. Stick around for more Buzz Break!
Piranha 3DD may have been pushed to 2012, but the new teaser trailer suggests that the quality and spirit of the franchise hasn't been diluted. How could it have been, with returning fish survivor Ving Rhames dropping lines like, "Bring me my legs!" before gunning down the waters, Cherry Darling-style? Or with Baywatch's own lifeguard-slash-private eye extraordinaire, Mitch Buchannon, policing the bouncing bloodied bosoms fleeing from their piscine predators? All this and more -- "Double the terror, double the Ds" -- in today's Buzz Break!
Because it looks complicated to make, has very limited mobility, and is kind of super creepy, this homemade Pixar-inspired costume -- a full-body reconstruction of the anthropomorphic Pixar Luxo lamp logo -- may not be the best costume idea for your Halloween movie-related revelries. But you've got to see it in action. Shivers. Check it out and stick around for your daily Buzz Break.
Darren Bousman (Repo! The Genetic Opera) has directed three Saw movies -- a fact which the trailer for next month's horror pic 11-11-11 makes a point to tell you. That pedigree, plus a handful of vaguely comprehensible images, shadowy scenes, a static shot of a statue, and (unintentionally) cheesy voice over tell you everything you need to know about the movie! Well, except for its plot. And who's in it. And why anyone should care. Watch the teaser and stick around for more Buzz Break.
Ok gadget hounds, so this Siri thing is pretty neat. AND she/it has a built-in sense for movie geekery, so if you happen to ask her, say, what the meaning of life is. (Answer: 42, duh.) Or slyly refer to the shenanigans of that uber-intelligent, all-knowing other futuristic supercomputer, HAL 9000. Watch video of Siri in action (at the 5:15 mark) after the jump and stick around for more Buzz Break.
The Joel Edgerton-Mary Elizabeth Winstead prequel The Thing hits theaters this Friday, so if you need a refresher on the events of the John Carpenter 1982 original -- which takes place three days after the new film -- what better way to relive it than through the Cliff's Notes version, as sung in the style of Frank Sinatra from the point of view of the dog? Just go with it. Watch Jon and Al's John Carpenter's The Thing: The Musical, then stick around for more Buzz Break.
Despite that one disgruntled moviegoer's complaints, there are plenty of diehard members of the cult of Drive, which incidentally has racked up a cool $30 million to date. Not too shabby, Film District. Perhaps it's fitting, then, that Ryan Gosling's Driver character has now been commemorated in the cutest, cuddliest way imaginable: as a crocheted amigurumi doll, complete with his signature toothpick and a yarn hammer. And you thought YOU were obsessed with Drive. Hit the jump for today's Buzz Break...
Ides of March co-star Evan Rachel Wood hit the late night circuit last night to push her latest, George Clooney's political thriller Ides of March, by talking to Jimmy Fallon about... her recent bout of Bieber Fever. Sure, why not? She plays an eager 20-year-old in the film, after all. And in grabbing the mic to perform an impromptu version of Justin Bieber's "Baby," Wood kills two birds with one stone by pimping both the Clooney-Gosling Oscar hopeful AND the concert doc Never Say Never. Judge her Bieber-esque swag and stick around for more Buzz Break.
After an excerpt of his Vanity Fair interview hit yesterday in which he compared being photographed to being raped, Johnny Depp (whose Rum Diary hits screens in a few weeks) thought better of his word choice. ""I am truly sorry for offending anyone in any way. I never meant to. It was a poor choice of words on my part in an effort to explain a feeling. I understand there is no comparison and I am very regretful. In an effort to correct my lack of judgment, please accept my heartfelt apology." No worries, Johnny. It's Apology Wednesday! Stick around for more Buzz Break.
Ryan Gosling may be a real street fight-stopping hero in man capris and the vulnerable getaway driver next door in this week's Drive, but a keen-eyed Movieline reader in Toronto sent in evidence of the one thing hotter than the Goss. No, not those Scarlett Johansson pics. Something even sweeter! Feast your eyes upon this discovery and stay for more in today's Buzz Break!
Back to the Future II director/producer Frank Marshall recently tweeted, "Something big is coming soon. Can't say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny. #BTTF." Well, this package from Dr. Emmett L. Brown helps explain: It's Nike's upcoming Air Mag shoe, a replica of Marty McFly's kicks from the first BTTF sequel, that boast self-lacing technology. Put on yer incredulous Crispin Glover bug eyes, because this is pretty wild! More in Buzz Break after the jump.
