'Raiders of the Lost Ark' Remake Featuring Hasbro Action Figures Hits the Web (Video)
The Golden Globes are over, WME agents are back from their retreat, Sundance kicks off later this week. News will return in earnest.
But while it's still relatively quiet, take some time to enjoy this, a stop-motion adaptation of the first six minutes of one of the best movies ever made, Raiders of the Lost Ark...using the Hasbro action figures.
It took Jeff Gurwood, who posted this on YouTube last month and it's been slowly making the rounds, about six pain-staking months to film a shot-for-shot remake of the opening sequence using sets he made.
