This international trailer explains how Godzilla
comes back into the world and why he's needed. Whether he wants
to come back will be revealed by his actions.
What can we expect from this film besides what we've seen in these trailers? Well a recent interview with director Gareth Edwards described his take on the movie monster and what type of character he truly is.
"He's an ancient warrior who's the last of his kind, and his kind has long since died out," Edwards said. "He lives a very solitary lonely existence and he's very happy to keep away from everyone, but we keep doing things to force him to return and put things right."
So expect a Last Samurai feel to this character but in a whole new way.
Here's the official plot synopsis for Godzilla.
An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Gareth Edwards directs "Godzilla," which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson ("Kick-Ass"), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe ("The Last Samurai," "Inception"), Elizabeth Olsen ("Martha Marcy May Marlene"), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche ("The English Patient," "Cosmopolis"), and Sally Hawkins ("Blue Jasmine"), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn ("Good Night, and Good Luck.," "The Bourne Legacy") and Bryan Cranston ("Argo," TV's "Breaking Bad")

This clever Jack Russell Terrier named Sid Russell loves to play fetch, but has no human to play with. But that’s ok. Sid has figured out how to harness the power of gravity to play with himself! He simply drops his tennis ball at the top of a flight of stairs and runs down. He’s got the perfect touch so the ball only starts to roll once he’s down the steps waiting to catch it.

Great Day Houston host Deborah Duncan learned a valuable lesson over the weekend when she attempted to hide a treat froma monkey. The monkey responded in kind by delivering a hilarious pimp slap.

A large tornado hit Tupelo, Mississippi yesterday afternoon. And a weatherman named Matt Laubhan was live on the air for an NBC affiliate when his studio had to be evacuated.
He stayed on the air until the last possible second, and then everyone ran to the basement. The tornado ended up knocking them off the air for a while. But luckily, all of the employees are apparently okay. And no one in Tupelo was killed.
(Search for "The Moment a Mississippi TV Station Evacuated for a Tornado." The feed cuts out for a few seconds at :43, and then he tells everyone to evacuate. There are some photos of damage in Tupelo here.)
(You might remember Matt from a few years ago when he surprised his news anchor girlfriend by proposing on live TV.)

A group of guys who make prank videos have a new one where one of them goes up to random people, and says they have something in their hair. Then he offers to grab it for them.
But when he goes to grab it, someone standing behind the person hands him something ridiculous . . . like a watermelon or a loaf of French bread. And everyone they do it to is BAFFLED by it.
In fact, a few of them actually believe that the thing he pulls out WAS in their hair. I love the responses.

This latest gag
by prankster Andrew Hales of LAHWF
may seem inspired by cartoons, but that doesn’t make it any less effective. Andrew and his buddies put a nice $20 bill on a fishing line and went fishing for money hungry passersby in downtown. It wasn’t difficult to get a ‘catch’ who would chase the bill as Andrew reeled them in.

Three base jumpers set a world record on Monday by jumping off the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai . . . which is the tallest building in the world at 2,717 feet. And they were wearing helmet cams, so there's a pretty cool video of it.
Unlike the guys who got
arrested for jumping off the new World Trade Center back in September, these guys got permission first.

Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda got kicked out of a game against the Red Sox yesterday, for using PINE TAR to get a better grip on his pitches. And the funny part was how OBVIOUS it was, because you could see a big smear of it on his NECK.
Pineda did the same thing two weeks ago in a game against the Red Sox. But that time he had the pine tar on the palm of his hand. And the Red Sox didn't ask the umpires to check it out. (See that video here.)
There's a mandatory ten-game suspension for pitchers who use a foreign substance on the ball. Which means he'll miss two starts. (Search for "Pineda's Ejection." The umpire checks him out at :57, and sees the pine tar at 1:09.)
(By the way, Pineda is Dominican. Which only matters because a white pitcher wouldn't even have a CHANCE of hiding dark pine tar on their skin. Apparently a LOT of pitchers do it though. And some use sun block.)

Here's a trick to play on your kids. They have to be young enough to not understand how a REMOTE works though. Someone uploaded a video of their toddler pausing and un-pausing the TV with a toy magic wand.
And obviously someone's just standing in the background with the remote. But the kid REALLY seems to think he has magic powers

he Blue Angels do something at airshows called the "diamond 360 maneuver," where they fly in formation . . . with their wings just
18 INCHES away from each other.
And if you want to see what THEY see, you're in luck. Because there's a new video shot from one of the cockpits.
