Today in Movie Culture: ‘Her Smell’ Music Video, ‘Hellboy’ Musical Parody, ‘Missing Link’ VFX Breakdown and More

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:

 

Music Video of the Day:

Alex Ross Perry’s punk rock movie Her Smell hits theaters today, and to showcase one of its tunes, Gunpowder & Sky released a music video for the fictional all-female band The Akergirls. Watch Her Smell stars Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, and Dylan Gelula, who perform “Can’t Wait”:

 

Musical Movie Parody of the Day:

The Hellboy reboot debuts in theaters this weekend, and the title character could really use a theme song for his return to the big screen. Aaron Fraser-Nash comes through again with his latest plot song parody, this one created with the help of KingHenrytheEtch and the tune of Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire”:

 

Cosplay of the Day:

This is another great weekend for cosplay spotting at the movies, as Hellboy is sure to bring in a bunch of red-faced fans to the theater. Here’s Chris Stanley, a.k.a. Cosplay Chris, showing the work put into his own costume plus a final look at him dressed up as the titular Beast of the Apocalypse:

 

Fan Art of the Day:

It’s also Fan Art Friday, and Hellboy has easily inspired some great work out there. In honor of the new movie, here is one cartoony piece from artist Sam Hudson pitting Big Red against a giant tentacled creature:

 

Classic Movie Trailer of the Day:

With the Hellboy reboot now in theaters, let’s continue to look back on the past movie incarnation of the comic book. Here’s one of the original trailers for Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, which opened more than a decade ago, on June 28, 2008:

 

Actor the the Spotlight:

With Laika’s Missing Link also now in theaters, IMDb celebrates the career of Hugh Jackman, who voices one of the animated feature’s main roles. From breaking out as Wolverine in X-Men to his musical work in Les Miserables and The Greatest Showman, here’s a look at the evolution of the Aussie icon:

 

VFX Breakdown of the Day:

Besides voice actors like Jackman, there are tons of craftspersons behind the characters of Missing Link. To show us how it all happens, SyFy Wire took a visit to Laika and got a behind-the-scenes look at the physical artistry that goes into the stop-motion effects of the new animated feature:

 

Collaborative Artists of the Day:

No kind of actor is more difficult to work with than cats. So how’d they get the kitty who plays Church in Pet Sematary to give such a good performance? Insider showcases the movie’s animal trainer, Melissa Millett, and animal coordinator, Kirk Jarrett, on their process getting felines ready for the screen:

 

Mashup of the Day:

If Pikachu can’t solve the case, maybe Deadpool can? Since Ryan Reynolds voices the titular character of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu and more iconically portrays Marvel’s merc with a mouth in the Deadpool movies, Space Taste inserted the latter into the trailer for the former seamlessly:

 

Franchise Recap of the Day:

With just two weeks left until the release of Avengers: Endgame, we can use all the recaps we can get. This exceptional Marvel Cinematic Universe “supercharged” supercut from the editor known as Voordeel is light on exposition but high on the energy of the franchise. That’s enough to get us even more excited for the next installment.
