It’s the first weekend of August and the summer movies are starting to come to an end. This weekend there’s the dance movie franchise with declining popularity with Step Up 3D starring Aussie actress Sharni Vinson. The Step Up flicks aren’t that great plot-wise, but they fun to check out. However, I think the buddy cop comedy The Other Guys seem to be tracking better and is generating a lot more laughter as well. Plus, how can you not like a film with a loaded cast of Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Sam Jackson and Dwayne Johnson?
After the jump a lot of new Scott Pilgrim promo stuff to check out, the characters of Inception doesn’t quite get inception, Little Fockers is a little focked and Eva Mendes’ sex tape!
What a great way to sell the film! Take a look at this fascinating interactive movie trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It’s filled with behind the scenes clips, little fun facts and audio commentary from director Edgar Wright. This is like a free version of the DVD feature! (Yahoo)
Speaking of fun Scott Pilgrim related stuff, check out the movie posters for Lucas Lee’s (played by Chris Evans) films that he made after he broke up with Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). The movies might look crappy, but I kinda wish they made them for real, especially Action Doctor. Even the tagline for that is a winner: “The good news is you’re going to live. The bad news is he’s going to kill you!” (Empire)

I’m sure you’ve played that awesome computer game The Oregon Trail. Well looks like a faux trailer has popped up for it. Fun video to watch. However that joy sorta erodes when we suddenly realize that this might be giving Hollywood an idea to make an actual feature film adaptation…
