As you know, we love some trailer mashup in the morning. And this one is a solid one, combining the spring’s anticipated film Watchmen with the imagery of Matt Groening’s Futurama.

Yeah sure, you’ve seen this elsewhere on the web. Get over it, friends. I like this video and I plan on using it as today’s Daily Diversion. Somehow I think that there are a few Star Wars fans out there who will get an extra kick out of this.

I am aware that a new episode of The Office aired Thursday night, putting a two-episode distance between us and the show that began with the above clip. But I don’t care, because what you’re about to see inside is comedy gold.

When I was tasked with picking an “old school” Friday the 13th clip, I immediately became torn – what was old school? I believe that I’ve succeeded in finding the right clip.

In honor of the fact that Tom Tykwer’s espionage thriller The International hits theaters tomorrow — and the fact that FSR reader Justin Niemeyer was kind enough to send it over — we thought we’d share this little trailer mash-up with you.

It gave me great pleasure to see that a screening of Big Man Japan went over so well at this past weekend’s New York Comic-Con. It gives me similar pleasure to share with you the film’s trailer.

Based on everything I’ve heard, this year’s Oxford Film Festival in Oxford, Mississippi was one hell of a good time. There were ridiculous situations with film critics and their WiFi connections, a few great films and of course, there was this video.

If I had to describe the trailer for Blake Edwards’ original Pink Panther, I’d either call it “ridiculously hokey” or “surprisingly sexist.” The first is obvious, especially if you’ve already seen the movie which is a triumph of slapstick foolishness delivered expertly by David Niven and Peter Sellers.

You’ve probably noticed a trend in past Daily Diversions in that they’re usually entertaining videos designed to be watched, enjoyed, and then immediately forgotten. Well that changes today. You’ll still watch it. You’ll still enjoy it. But you’ll carry it’s message with you forever as you march onto the battlefield, gun in hand, and take aim…

Normally I wouldn’t use my Daily Diversion time to hold science class, but I found this to be pretty interesting. It was brought to my attention by the 3D-loving Jim Dorey over at MarketSaw, a site so into third-dimensional cinema that it may literally poke you in the eye with awesome.

For those of you who missed last night’s Superbowl, let me start by saying that you missed one hell of a game. Secondly, you missed some pretty great commercials wedged uncomfortably between obviously desperate promos for NBC’s Heroes.

500days-1

A few days ago my good friend Erik Davis posted this over at Cinematical — and all at once I was hit with nostalgia. Just a week ago (or so) I was sitting at the Eccles Theater in Park City, Utah enjoying a little bit of time with the undeniably charming film 500 Days of Summer.

Today’s daily diversion requires very little explanation. Mickey Rourke went on Larry King Live the other day, where he was forced to talk to Chris Jericho, whom he had called out a few days ago on the red carpet.

Quick, go get your 3D glasses. We’ll wait. Alright, now that you’ve successfully retrieved something that you would never publicly admit to owning, it is important to tell you something…

What happens when a five year old gets the power to command the animals of the earth? And what happens when you attack someone with a bag of cats?

What happens when your friend hasn’t seen Star Wars but refuses to see them because she “already knows what happens?” You put that knowledge to the test and let hilarity ensue.
