The guys at Tested made this amazing Rancor cosplay in honor of Return of the Jedi. The original movie makers tried to make a live suit for the effect, but were unable to accomplish the feat in 1983.

These folks got it done in 3 weeks. It's enough to make you cry...



Those arms are a little silly though,

Conan O'brien's decision to host his show from the San Diego confines of the country's biggest Comic Con provides him with some unprecedented access. 

That includes this hidden footage of many actors looking to play Wolverine and replace Hugh Jackman, who's hanging up his claws after portraying Logan in about 2,000 movies.

The variety of stars wanting to join the ranks of the X Men are a lot more varied than you would expect.

Example:



That's some real access he got there. Use your Comic Con power wisely, Conan.

Conan O'brien is on a post-Comic Con streak, here. Especially since he was able to gain access to George R. R. Martin's home camera system. 

And lo, we all learn what keeps Mr. Martin busy while his characters remain in some sort of literary limbo.

That trampoline does look fun, though.

  4. Misha Collins (@mishacollins)
  5. Dylan Sprayberry (@DSprayberry)

  3. Supernatural (@cw_spn)
  4. Teen Wolf (@MTVteenwolf)
  5. The Vampire Diaries (@cwtvd)


Comic Con sure has come a long way from the comic book and superhero focused gathering it once was. Which film featured at SDCC are you most excited to see?

UPDATE: Eisenberg has clarified his comment, saying, "Maybe on some cellular memory level, that's the only thing that seems like an equivalent social experience. Even if they're saying nice things, just being shouted at by thousands of people, it's horrifying. I of course was using hyperbole to describe the sensory overload I experienced. I sometimes do employ that. I'm a normal person who has normal sensory experiences, so Comic-Con was very overwhelming for me. That said, it was really an honor to be on that end of such jubilation. That people are excited about it in that way is unheard of and thrilling."

Original post follows below:

Get your cringe face ready, you're gonna need it for this one.

When asked about his experience at San Diego Comic Con, Jesse Eisenberg said attending was akin to genocide:

"It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don't know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can't think of anything that's equivalent."



Attending Comic Con is certainly hard on celebrities; it can't be easy being screamed at and accosted by fans, but genocide? What?

This isn't the first time Eisenberg has made headlines for his behavior in interviews, either. In 2013 he developed a reputation as a jerk after being insufferably rude in an interview for the film Now You See Me:



Cringe, cringe everywhere.
