First Peek at Silver Surfer

From USA Today comes the first look at the Silver Surfer in the new Fantastic Four. His smooth head and concerned eyes make him reminiscent of a young, silver Montel Williams, but only the real Montel is naive enough to believe in psychic Sylvia Browne so strongly as to bring her in every Wednesday (and sometimes Fridays, during the summer).

For those unfamiliar with the comic, Silver Surfer is an intergalactic herald to the powerful Galactus, devourer of worlds. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, he was based on the misjudged timeless popularity of surfing in the '60s, similar to the later creations of Golden Rollerbladeer and Captain Segwayer.

See the trailer here.

Grindhouse Teaser

The teaser trailer for the Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino double-feature Grindhouse is on Yahoo! Movies. With this, 300, and Spidey, it's gonna be a great summer for movies.

Optimus Prime is Covergirl

Aware that many fans are upset by the Transformer redesign, they've decided to put Optimus Prime in the dark for the cover of Empire Magazine. I find the lack of lens flares disheartening.

Tons of Turtles Stills

There are plenty of high-resolution stills from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie over here, including the above shot of Splinter's keepsake room, revealing a very famous piece of headgear from his past. Resting on the glass case, a Robin Hood hat reminds us of Splinter's experimental trysts with Errol Flynn.
