If you have a spare $50,000 down the back of your couch then you might be interested in investing in the self-sizing, self-drying jacket of the future, as featured in the 1989 Robert Zemeckis film Back To The Future Part II. Only one of these were made and was worn by Michael J Fox’s character Marty McFly in 2015, (not so far away now), cables were fitted to the inside of the jacket and operated by a special effects crew to get it to re-size and dry during filming. The jacket is currently available for sale at the website Profiles In History as part of a Hollywood Memorabilia auction.
Sweet Jesus Cinnamon Tits! The trailer above for Zack Snyder’s latest film Sucker Punch, (he of 300 and Watchmen fame), should come with a health warning as it’s covered in so much delicious awesome sauce. The basic plot revolves around a young girl who is forced into a mental institution where she and four friends attempt to escape…through their imagination. That last part, about freeing your mind to truly escape, may be a bit of a sticking point but when your lead characters look like Halloween cos-play hotties and you have a huge-normous dragon and zombie Kaiser soldiers in your film who really gives a shit about a plot?

A hot chick, a reckless daredevil and a safety conscious wet blanket find themselves trapped in a huge underground cave. With only cheesy one liners to keep them company they must find a way out, back to the surface, before their mates piss off home for their tea and forget about them. It’s like the Poseidon Adventure but with more bad acting, sleeveless vests and hard hats…and it’s in 3D!
Here’s yet another trailer for Disney’s behemoth movie Tron Legacy but this time with music from Daft Punk who scored the soundtrack for the film. The money that has been spent making this movie is bordering on the obscene, but after watching the video above everyone here at HMS Friday simultaneously soiled our smalls. Hurry up December 17th.
Movie giants Warner Bros are mulling over an idea which could see a full length feature film, (possibly all CGI), centred around the infamous Looney Tunes Acme Corporation, a company responsible for supplying Wile E. Coyote with all the crazy gadgets he has ever used in his, somewhat calamitous, attempts to snare The Roadrunner. Other outrageous products from Acme, (which stands for A Company which Makes Everything), have popped up in various other cartoons but our favourite here at HMS Friday is The ACME Batman Outfit: Guaranteed For The Life Of The User.

Here’s the trailer for Liam’ Easter Island Head’ Nessons’ latest film Unknown. Apart from giving away what appears to be not just the entire plot but almost the entire film, the trailer once more teaches us two important lessons: 1) Mr Neeson really needs to stay away from Europe, (see Taken) and 2) Although he plays the part of a man who has forgotten everything he somehow still remembers how to inflict pain through a hybrid style of street kung-fu and knows how to expertly use a range of evasive driving techniques.
N.B. No matter how bad your head trauma was you would never forget nailing Don Draper’s wife. Fact!
This short video of two skateboarders witnessing the crash landing of what appears to be some sort of space craft has all the hallmarks of a promotional viral video. It’s been doing the rounds across the Internet and has most people mystified, but we here at HMS Friday think we’ve cracked it. We believe it’s a viral video for the soon to be released film Attack The Block directed by comedian Joe Cornish, (he of Adam and Joe Show fame).
