That shot remind anyone of The NeverEnding Story?…
I’m a huge fan of director Brad Bird‘s work. The big 3: Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Now he’s got a new live-action sci-fi film hitting theaters on May 22nd, 2015, called Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson, amongst others. Heres a vague synopsis from Wikipedia (there are much more in depth sysnopsis’ out there that give away a lot if you just google it):
Frank (George Clooney) and Casey (Britt Robertson) travel to a place somewhere in time and space only known as Tomorrowland, where their actions directly affect the world and themselves.
Welcome back to The Wednesday Video Dump, where each Wednesday (or every other, depending on my schedule) I will handpick two videos (or,in some cases, Vines), new or old, from each category that we cover on the site (Video Games, Movies/TV, Sports, Music, and Whatever).
To see the videos, just click on the corresponding picture below the category banner.

The Wednesday Video Dump is a new segment I’m trying out this week. The idea is that each Wednesday (or every other, depending on my schedule) I will handpick two videos (or,in some cases, Vines), new or old, from each category that we cover on the site (Video Games, Movies/TV, Sports, Music, and Whatever).
Iiiits getting a little late here and I’m gonna try to do this rapid fire style, so expect a lot more polish and tweaking next time around. To see the videos, just click on the corresponding picture below the category banner.
Today we’ve got Kobe dissin’ Swaggy P (slightly), Great Whites biting Great Whites, the latest trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Pharrell’s latest mind bender of a video, Jimmy Kimmel grillin’ potheads about current issues, and more.
The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry…
My friends and family make finding stuff to post on the site very easy. I’ve had four taxing days of alotta work and alotta play and I was of the attitude when I got home tonight that “fuck it, I’m gonna relax, turn on a movie, and snooze in front the couch.” Buuut then I watched this extremely awesome (and nerdy) video that my amazing sister Nicolle sent me, it had to be posted.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is one of those games I had zero interest in when it was first revealed in November 2013. The graphics looked sub par and I had no idea what the actual game was about. Now that things have cleared on both of those matters (the graphics are killer and it’s basically Assassin’s Creed in the LOTR universe and takes place between The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy) I am very, very excited to play it (releases September 30th).
But I wasn’t even gonna give it a sniff until I saw some reviews, and luckily three of the best, Gamespot, IGN, and GamesRadar, have taken care of me (and you) on that front. To watch each of those just click on the corresponding pic:

Bruce Wayne, who grew up to become one helluva detective with the alias “Batman“, has seen his parents die many, many times in the movie world. Vulture‘s Abraham Riesman did the world a favor and put together a supercut showing us this unfortunate incident again, and again, and again in Batmans Parents Dying: The Supercut.
Iiiiiiits Monday! And I fucking love Mondays! Because here at Play It Black its #MusicMonday, and this one’s definitely special.
Today, September 22nd sits between two important dates: on September 21st, 1950, Bill Murray was born, and slightly less than a year earlier, September 23, 1949, Bruce Springsteen, aka “The Boss” came into the world. So lets wish these two gangsters a Happy Happy Happy Happy Birthday from Play It Black by taking a look at some of my favorite videos!
