  1. are working titles just codenames so that leaked documents dont have the proper names? like xbox durango for the next xbox console?

    going no where near that star trek spoiler XD

    • Lol watch it its funny. No actual spoilers.

    • Yes, they are. People still manage to find out what the actual movie is though.

      That’s also why the Family Guy Star Wars parody was named Blue Harvest though, as a tribute.

      • That was more than a “code name” though. In cases like Blue Harvest, entire facades are created with hats and posters and scripts and such so that onlookers believe that something nondescript is being created and take no interest. Then there are companies like Disney that use other names when procuring land so that nobody figure out what they are up to and tries to get more money for their land. Kinda like in There Will be Blood when they discove oil on someone’s land but claim to be mere pigeon hunters. “We’ll give them pigeon money.”. He reassured his naive son…

    • Hey COREY_1993, I’ll spoil Star Trek for you. You pay $20 to see 2 hours of crap.

      • Drugs Are Bad as a screen name? I love the sarcasm. Also watch Star Trek high, it’s bad ass.

        • I hate to warp impressionable minds, but I can’t disagree. I was in college when First Contact came out, and that’s my excuse for seeing it while on a psychedelic trip…. The chattering whispers of the Borg were stuck in my head! I freaked out my designated driver with haunting recreations all the way back to campus. Trek 5 would probably just be a bad trip though, so be warned. Totally gonna take a flask and some brownies to the new one.

          Love yer name. Wish they’d make a Preacher movie before Eastwood dies and somehow convince him to play the Saint, seeing as he was based on Clint’s incredible Unforgiven character. A few favorite lines:

          “Not enough gun.”. -SofK

          “Surely not…”. Star

          “wub?”. (one of the inbred christlings, or maybe just a cannibal hillbilly)

      • You seem really interesting! I wonder if you are a tool…?

        • That comment was for DrugsAreBad, by the way, and it wasn’t an insult technically, just a question.

  2. That Home Alone/Die Hard mash up was PERFECT! :D

  3. Best Harlem Shake Ive seen so far :)

    Also liked Supercut of Internet Famous Eyewitness Interviews

  4. OMG the Gadget Girl is so good looking! She looks like a cuter version of Allison Hannigan.

  5. I don’t think those were so much working titles as they were faux titles sent to the theaters to prevent thefts and such.
