  • jennifer

    yes! Gets me pumped

  • ben

    it’s already begun. it is simply amazing.

  • Jeff

    Thats gotta be the best trailer… ever

  • Simply put – nobody does it better than the BBC. This series will blow your mind. I just hope they keep the John Hurt narration for the North American viewers. For some bizaare reason Oprah narrated the Life series in the USA as opposed to David Attenborough over here (basically the definitive voice of Nature as confirmed by my Canadian fiance).

  • it is completely stunning

  • Jim

    Brilliant. Seen a couple of them. As above – no one does it like the BBC

  • having already seen it, it is a fantastic series and I’d recommend it to anyone

  • Gemma

    Most if not all of them have been on in the uk, the ocean and the jungle ones are immense!!!

  • Matthew

    This looks crraaazy.

  • oh boy, oh boy, oh boy…

    can`t wait!!!!!

  • lapetitefaon

    jesus, I think my heart stopped beating at some point while watching that, unreal images, cannot wait!!!

  • Craig

    It is amazing! Really good PDF here on how they made it and the camera techniques http://tinyurl.com/6zf2av2

    Wait till Autumn when Frozen Planet starts in the UK, will be stunning!

  • unreal

  • alinazarzar

    It certainly looks great, but they should call it “Men planet”, because only a few women appear in the trailer. There we go again, judging men´s activities as amazing and brave and keeping half of the world`s inhabitants in the shadows… sorry but I can`t feel indiferent about this kind of things.

    • good point. i have a hard time watching trailers/documentaries like this and just getting lost in the awe… i can’t help but wonder about the complicated nature of (privileged, most likely potentially former colonizers) outsiders making these kinds of documentaries, regardless of how stunning some of the images are and impressive the technical side of getting those images is…

  • so good. this more just reminds me of how effective music can be in making you feel something powerful. but yeahhh for indigenous populations

  • Kevin Courtney Blythe-Wood

    great great great!!!!!!!!!!! BBC!!!!

  • tom mcdonnell

    Can anybody identify the music being played – simply beautiful!

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
