The trailer for a new film covering the life and high times of reggae legend Bob Marley has hit the net.

That, and plenty of other cool things, features in our wrap of the 10 best links on the web today.

1. He's the biggest reggae artist ever, and now he's got his very own documentary. So drag out your Bob Marley compilations, roll your dreads with some surf wax and get skanking along to the trailer for new film Marley, the "definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary and legend". It's from The Last King of Scotland director Kevin McDonald, and it's due out in April. (Apple)

2. Here's a choice little short feature film from a new batch of ace Media Design School students. You can almost see the blood, sweat and OOS in Dr Grordbort presents: The Deadliest Game, a sort of Jurassic Park-meets-Dr Seuss dinosaur adventure.

Expect a call from Weta Workshop very soon, guys.(Facebook)

3. Light up a cigarette in your office (don't do that), hit on the office secretary (don't do that either) and make inappropriate remarks to the office intern (that's probably okay, but don't hold me to it) to prepare for the Mad Men season five trailer. Don Draper is back on March 25. (YouTube)

4. If you're a fan of animal documentaries, you'll probably love the new video for Polica's Amongster. There's no David Attenborough, but there's plenty of lingering slow-mo animal attraction action. Try saying that 10 times fast with a mouth full of muffin. (Pretty Much Amazing)

5. A trailer for the new documentary Wonder Woman: The Untold Story of American Superheroines is out, in which superhero freaks and geeks detail the affect the caped crusader had on their lives. (AintItCool)

6. If you're into a bit of atmospheric post-grunge rock, check out the album stream for School of Seven Bells' Ghostory. Album's out February 28. (Consequence of Sound)

7. New Blur song! New Blur song! New Blur song! But is Under the Westway any good? You be the judge. (Pitchfork)

8. When Kid Cudi released his hit song Day and Night, he also recorded Dose of Dopeness, a track which hasn't been released in full till now. Got that title right. And check out a preview of his new side-project WZRD here. (Pusha T)

9. Do two wrongs make a right? In this case, yes. Check out the children's trailer for The Phantom Menace with hilarious voiceover featuring gems like, "Hey wait, a double-bladed light sabre? That's not fair." Still doesn't make me want to watch that sci-fi snore-fest again. (YouTube)

10. Got a child under five? Then for his next birthday you have to make Lorax cake sticks. It will only take you three days or so and you'll be the best parent ever. (Twitter)

Chris Schulz is an entertainment feature writer for the New Zealand Herald.

A subscription to RTR Countdown magazine as a teenager kick started Chris’ inspiration to become an entertainment reporter. After finishing a grad-dip at journalism school, he discovered the magazine no longer existed. So he instead begged for a reviewing job at Rip It Up, then took over a local news website’s entertainment section in 2004 when no one else wanted to do it. It’s as much a surprise to him as it is to those around him that he’s been doing entertainment reporting ever since, utilising his diehard love of popular culture (specifically music, TV, movies and games). His career highlights including interviewing heroes like Billy Corgan and Trent Reznor, discussing the best sheep-docking techniques with Courtney Love, and breaking his nose during a Shihad concert. The last thing left on his entertainment reporting bucket list is to ride a rollercoaster with Dave Grohl, something he’s hoping to achieve in the next 12 months.
