Pizza Hut's fully-functional “Pizza Thrower” is a nod to the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy (we still have fond memories of messing up the living room back in 1990), and the the pizza company is partnering with Paramount on the upcoming movie release.
The attraction, stationed just outside the San Diego Convention Center, weighs 2 tons, stands 12 feet high, a took 7 weeks to build. And it fires pizzas. From a custom cannon. Up to 30 feet! From a seat perched on top of turret.
Also, Will Arnett and Megan Fox, stars of the upcoming TMNT blockbuster, stopped by the activation yesterday.
DISCLAIMER: I haven't seen any of the following movies and am basing my opinions on my negative worldview alone.
X-Men: Days of FuturePast: Not even Neil Degrasse Tyson could explain where "days of future past" falls on the space-time continuum. I expect more Wolverine shenanigans! And Ellen Page doing her best monotone delivery.
Godzilla: Remember the tagline for Roland Emmerich's laughable 1998 reboot, "Size Does Matter?" This is the monster plus Walter White, minus any feelings of inadequacy. And Aaron Taylor Johnson reportedly put on 20 pounds of beefiness for his role in this. So, there's that.
22 Jump Street: Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back, better than ever, and across the street. Reading the warning labels on my Vicodin bottle sounds more exciting.
Maleficent: I can't wait to see this bad bitch. Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Juno Temple, and Imelda freaking Staunton. Beware: I will be talkng back to the screen.
Edge of Tomorrow: I can't tell you how many times people have promised to meet me for coffee at the "edge of tomorrow" and completely flaked. Does Emily Blunt pull the same shit with Tom Cruise in this flick?
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Coincidentally, this is also my drag name.
The Purge: Anarchy: "The Purge" is never really as enjoyable as "the binge." Am I right, ladies, or am I right?
Hercules: Brett Ratner delivers the gayest film of the season. Must've been all those "rehearsals."
Guardians of the Galaxy: I can't tell if this movie is a prank or not. Oh, it's not? Chris Pratt, call me.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Remember the 1990 version with Judith Hoag and Elias Koteas? Splinter: "I made a funny!" LOL. Good times...wait, Megan Fox plays April? And it's from Michael Bay? Consider my childhood raped once again.
The Expendables 3: Let me get this straight -- Lindsay Lohan is not allowed to be in movies anymore, but Mel Gibson is?
The world of online dating gets rightfully skewered in a new web series that recently debuted on Funny or Die.
Online Daters features four lady-seeking bros pulling out all the technological stops to track down a profile worthy of their attention. Combining the intense camerawork of a Scandal or Homeland episode with some spoofy hilarity, OD is just what the viral doctor ordered.
