Mel Gibson Returns as Mad Max in Fury Road Deepfake Video
Mel Gibson takes over for Tom Hardy in a new Mad Max: Fury Road DeepFake video. However, it's actually Mel Gibson from around 25 years ago. The DeepFake craze continues as fans find ways to manipulate footage from different types of sources. Some are better than others and the new Fury Road video is actually pretty well done, even when compared to the recent DeepFakes of Bill Hader as Tom Cruise or Keanu Reeves in Sesame Street. Gibson first starred as "Mad" Max Rockatansky in George Miller's 1979 original, entitled Mad Max. While the movie was polarizing upon its release, it has gone on to become a classic.

While Tom Hardy did an excellent job in Fury Road, there are still some fans who can only see Mel Gibson in the role. This new DeepFake video, which is labeled part 1, is for those fans. In the video, Max Rockatansky is trying

Movie Poster of the Week: Bill Forsyth’s “Local Hero” and the Business of Marketing Movies

  • MUBI
Back in 1983, when I was but a wee lad in Wales, I saw an episode of the British arts TV program The South Bank Show about the making of Bill Forsyth’s new film Local Hero (my family already being huge Gregory’s Girl fans). It covered the whole process of making the film, from script to screen, but the scene that most interested me, and which had stayed with me ever since, was the marketing meeting in which hot-shot producer David Putnam and the staff of the British branch of 20th Century Fox discussed the various concepts for the film’s poster. I remember thinking that that would be the greatest job in the world, but it was so far from anything I thought I’d really end up doing.The Criterion Collection is releasing Local Hero on Blu-ray and DVD on September 24, and I was very happy to

What We’ll Miss Most about Mad Magazine

It’s the end of an era as James Whitbrook of Gizmodo seems to be getting at. While Mad magazine isn’t exactly dead in the water it’s going to cease publishing new content very soon and will no longer be the magazine that a lot of us remember. This is kind of a saddening time as the magazine has been running since the 50s and has almost always come up with brand new and engaging material that’s been able to make just about anyone laugh so long as they had a sense of humor. Mad has satirized so many different shows,

Brightburn 2 Talks Are Happening Confirms James Gunn

Brightburn 2 Talks Are Happening Confirms James Gunn
Earlier this year, Slither and Super director James Gunn produced a "startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror" with director David Yarovesky's, you know, superhero horror movie Brightburn. And today we have word via producer James Gunn himself over on Instagram that talks have already begun for a Brightburn 2.

You see, what had happened was, a fan over on Instagram commented on a recent post by Gunn on the ending of Mad magazine and said that we definitely need a sequel to Brightburn, and the fan asked James Gunn if he would be so kind as to direct it. Gunn replied with this.

"I think I'm tied up for the next few years with [The] Suicide Squad and Guardians [of the Galaxy Vol. 3], but we're talking about the [Brightburn] sequel."

Now truth be told, I have not seen this superhero horror movie yet so I cannot comment on whether or not I'd

Friday One Sheet: Echo In The Canyon Recalls Jack Davis

By a strange co-incidence, this Jack Davis inspired key art appeared for Andrew Slater's documentary on the Laurel Canyon folk music of the 1960s, Echo in the Canyon, debuted almost exactly the same time that the iconic Mad Magazine issued a press release that there would be no more new issues. Davis was the illustrator that most shaped the aesthetic of Mad Magazine until his retirement a few years ago (and his death in 2016). He also did a lot of album covers and movie posters, typically for comedies and offbeat blockbusters. The one sheet below was illustrated by Mark Stutzman, who also has done work for Mad, clearly had Davis' work of the era (which coincides partly with the musical period) on his mind....

Mad Magazine to End Newsstand Run After 67 Years
Iconic satire publication Mad Magazine is preparing to stop publishing new material. The August issue will be the final installment sold at newsstands. With that being said, the shop isn't closing up completely and the magazine will continue to publish previously released material with new covers for the foreseeable future. Mad introduced the world to Alfred E. Neuman 67 years ago and has been an influence on many entertainers over the years who are now mourning the loss of the magazine.

Rumors of the demise of Mad Magazine started to spread yesterday after an alleged Facebook group chat with an editor of the publication became public news. After the news started to spread, cartoonists David DeGrand and Evan Dorkin confirmed the news on social media, but also revealed they weren't completely done yet. DeGrand had this to say about the situation.

RIP Mad Magazine? Satirical Publication to Cease Original Content, Focus on Reprints
After 67 years, hundreds of issues, a spinoff sketch comedy series and countless imitators, Mad Magazine as it has been known since 1952 is coming to an end, according to the magazine’s former editor, Allie Goertz.

“There’s been an outpour of kindness surrounding the rumor that @MADmagazine is ceasing publication, but Mad is not quite done,” Goertz tweeted late Wednesday night. “After the next Two great new issues are released, Mad will begin publishing bi-monthly issues with vintage pieces and new covers.”

“While there will be no new material after issue #10, @MADmagazine is not gone,” Goertz continued. “I find it deeply sad to learn that there will be no new content, but knowing history repeats itself, I have no doubt that the vintage pieces will be highly (if not tragically) relevant.”

Did Dems Kill "Mad" Magazine ?

According to new reports, "Mad" magazine, the EC Comics humor mag that launched in 1952, will cease publication by the end of this year, in part because of the uncanny resemblance of "Mad" mascot 'Alfred E. Neuman' to 'Mayor Pete Buttigieg', that could give Buttigieg an unfair advantage over other candidates running for the Democrat nomination in the 2020 United States presidential election:

"...'Alfred E. Neuman', the 'idiot kid' cover boy of 'Mad' on more than 550 issues, is distinguished by his short, tousled hair, an invariable grin with a missing front tooth...

"...freckles across the bridge of his nose, protruding ears, and a left eye, eyebrow and ear set lower than their right-hand counterparts..."

"But he has a loveable quality and intelligence behind his eyes, with a devil-may-care attitude. 

"Someone who can maintain a stupid sense of humor...

"...while the world is collapsing all around him..."

‘Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter Of Terror’: First Look At Lush New Art For Ahoy’s Boozy Comic

‘Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter Of Terror’: First Look At Lush New Art For Ahoy’s Boozy Comic
The legacy of Edgar Allen Poe is, no surprise, a weird one. The author of The Raven remains a household name almost 170 years after his mysterious death but somehow Poe’s most enduring literary innovation (he invented the detective story) is widely overlooked. The Boston-born writer’s lurid death at age 40 while passing through Baltimore remains an unsolved mystery but its local infamy led to the Baltimore Ravens, the only NFL squad named after a poem.

Poe’s legacy is only getting weirder these days with Ahoy Comics and its comics magazine series Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror, an admirably bizarre concoction that is equal parts Tales from the Crypt and Drunk History. The boozy author retells his tales of horror and mystery and things get (you guessed it) pretty weird.

Ring of Bright Water

This favorite animal film takes a half-step sideways out of the cute animal subgenre: the delightful Mij is no super-otter, just an ordinary playful garden-variety otter, as an Otter oughta be. (cough) Champion mellow English couple Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers have put together a film guaranteed to lower your blood pressure. But see it first before deciding it’s for your kids, as reality is not sugarcoated in its uplifting, but certainly not sentimentalized, view of our place in a world that still has some animals left alive.

Donald Trump Trashes Fox News During Campaign Rally For Sunday’s Pete Buttigieg Town Hall
Pete Buttigieg is getting under President Donald Trump’s skin.

Speaking at his rally in Montoursville, Pa, on Monday night, Trump lambasted Fox News Channel for having aired a town hall with Dem 2020 hopeful the night before.

“Last night I watched Alfred E. Neuman. What’s going on with Fox [News], by the way? What’s going on there?” Trump faux-asked rally attendees. “They’re putting more Democrats on then you have Republicans. Something strange going on at Fox, folks. Something very strange! Did you see this guy last night? He was knocking the hell out of Fox! And Fox put him on. Somebody going to have to explain the whole Fox deal to me.”

Alfred E. Neuman — he of Mad magazine “What, me worry?” fame — is Trump’s nickname for Buttigieg.

But Buttigieg out-nicknamed Trump, on Sunday.

When asked by Chris Wallace how he would handle Trump’s debate insults and his tweets,

Trump Compares Pete Buttigieg to Mad Magazine's Alfred E. Neuman

President Trump says Mayor Pete Buttigieg bears a striking resemblance to the fictional Mad Magazine cover guy, Alfred E. Neuman, and that alone disqualifies him. Dt shared his thoughts -- one of the first times he's acknowledged Buttigieg's presidential campaign, it seems -- in an interview with Politico Friday, where he's described as dismissively saying about the South Bend, Indiana mayor ...

Reminder: Rhaegar Targaryen's Death Basically Caused Everything on Game of Thrones

Reminder: Rhaegar Targaryen's Death Basically Caused Everything on Game of Thrones
Rhaegar Targaryen is arguably the most important Game of Thrones character, and until the season seven finale, we had never even seen him. His death marked the end of a long and complicated rebellion full of forbidden love and a plethora of fighting and murder. If you're wondering how or why he died, or perhaps you've forgotten, we are here to help, because he's definitely an important piece of the Westeros puzzle.

Rhaegar was the eldest son of "Mad" King Aerys II, making him heir to the Iron Throne and Daenerys's oldest brother. The Targaryens are allies with the Lannisters way back when at this time, and Cersei always thought she might marry Rhaegar, but the two families' peace falls apart when the Mad King instead marries Rhaegar to Elia Martell of Dorne, with whom he has two children. But everything really falls apart in the Seven Kingdoms when Rhaegar
