Doc Brown Introduces New Playable Characters For Lego Dimensions

20 May 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Great Scott! It’s only Christopher Lloyd himself reprising his role as bonkers scientist Doc Brown to introduce a slew of new characters that will be available in Lego Dimensions when the anticipated crossover title debuts in September.

Acting as a Warner Bros. greatest hits album in many ways, the fresh faces include Doc Brown himself – who Lloyd stumbles upon in the above video – Batman, The Lord of the Rings and characters from last year’s rather excellent The Lego Movie. As the clip demonstrates, Dimensions will follow in the footsteps of Skylanders and Disney Infinity by selling starter packs and a Toy Pad, enabling players to bring their bite-sized heroes to life seamlessly in the game.

In tandem with today’s new trailer, the publisher detailed some of the features fans can expect in a few months’ time, including the amount of characters that can be brought to life at any given time. »

Doc Brown Announces New Lego Dimensions Figures Including Himself, Sensei Wu, Joker and More

20 May 2015 6:47 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

One of the key selling points that WB Games is pushing for Lego Dimensions is full compatibility across the line entire, both in the first game and moving forward.

To illustrate this point, a new Lego Dimensions trailer was released this morning starring none other than Back to the Future's Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd, receiving a similar mysterious package as Joel McHale did in the Lego Dimensions announcement trailer. Inside the package Doc finds a Lego Dimensions Doc Brown figure, and off on a rambling adventure he goes.

Joining the Doc Brown Fun Pack are Sensei Wu and Lloyd aka the Gold Ninja Ninjago Fun Packs; DC Comics Fun Packs for Bane, Aquaman and Superman; and a Team Pack starring the Joker and Harley Quinn.

When push comes to shove, WB Games wants you to remember that "no compatibility chart is necessary" for Lego Dimensions. Doc Brown can »

Why You Need to Know About 'Granite Flats,' Netflix's Newest Drama

18 May 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On the surface, "Granite Flats" looks like a lot of premium cable dramas. The cast includes icons like Christopher Lloyd and Parker Posey. It has an intriguing period setting — a small town, caught up in the paranoia of the 1960s, invoking thoughts of "Mad Men." Read More: Matt Lucas on Creating Netflix Original 'Pompidou' for Children, Adults In Touch With Their Inner Child and Stoners But unlike "Mad Men," no one drinks, no one smokes, and if anyone's having sex, it happens very much off screen. That's because "Granite Flats" is a production of BYUtv, a network operated and funded by Brigham Young University. It's not just made for Mormons. It's paid for by them. And during what was billed as "an intimate breakfast" with that cast and producers of "Granite Flats," I got a chance to speak with several principals of the production to understand what exactly all that means, »

Elizabeth Wilson, Actress on Stage and Screen, Dies at 94

10 May 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elizabeth Wilson, a character actress who appeared in films including “The Graduate” and “9 to 5” but also had a long career on the stage, died on Saturday in New Haven, Conn.. She was 94.

In a career that spanned almost seven decades, she won a Tony in 1972 for her portrayal of a Vietnam veteran’s emotionally scarred mother in David Rabe’s antiwar drama “Sticks and Bones.” She won Obie Awards for performances in “Taken in Marriage” in 1979 and “Anteroom” in 1986.

She was nominated for an Emmy for the based-on-a-true-story miniseries “Nutcracker: Money, Madness and Murder” (1987) in which she played the wealthy but helpless mother of a woman (Lee Remick) who’s plotting to kill her father.

Her best-known film performance was in the 1980 hit “9 to 5,” in which she played Roz, the office snitch and the nemesis of the workers played by Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.

Why the opening scene of Back to the Future is pure genius

30 April 2015 1:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Back to the Future is rightly regarded as an '80s classic - but have we underestimated just how clever a movie it is?

A new video essay from Vimeo user Must See Films puts the opening scene under the microscope and illuminates it in an entirely new way.

In Back to the Future's 2-minute 52-second opener, a continuous shot prowling through Doc Brown's home, the viewer gets treated to an incredible amount of information in a very short time.

Christopher Lloyd's Doc Brown gets set up in immaculate detail (drawing comparisons to Cruella De Vil, of all people!), the film's time theme gets hammered home and there's even a clever foreshadowing thanks to an image from '20s film Safety Last!.

Watch the video above to see just how densely-packed this opening shot is. In the words of Marty McFly, this is heavy! »

23 specially-shot movie teaser trailers

21 April 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Psycho to Jurassic Park, here are 23 teaser trailers that don't show a frame of footage from the movies they're advertising...

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.

But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »

Waxing Episodic: Jim's generous nature made for a great 'Taxi' episode

17 April 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In HitFix's new feature 'Waxing Episodic,' we reflect on an episode of television we'll never forget. Before he ever played Doc Brown, I was a raving Christopher Lloyd fan. We all have shows we love unreservedly. There are many TV shows that are important to me for many reasons. Many of my favorite shows are from recent years as television has hit a certain kind of stride, but the only reason we are where we are with television now is because of series that have pushed things forward in the past. There are shows that I love for single elements or single performances or even single moments. With "Taxi," though, I love the entire thing. Top to bottom, start to finish, I think it's one of the greatest shows to ever appear on television, and even trying to explain all the things I love about it would be a Herculean undertaking. »

Exclusive: Interview with 'Bethany' Director James Cullen Bressack and special guest Zack Ward

11 April 2015 1:23 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Interview by Kevin Scott

MoreHorror.com

I had the privilege recently to talk with the very talented director James Cullen Bressack. He’s becoming the Cameron Crowe of Horror directors by being a wunderkind and showing mind blowing talent as a writer and director even before he could buy his own beer. I was grateful to get some insight from him, find out what inspired him, and see what’s next. Special thanks to actor/producer/writer Zack Ward for joining in on the interview.

Ks: I know that you get this a lot, but you are a really young guy. You seem so close to the golden age of VHS, with a love for such classics as “Basket Case” and the William Lustig films, yet you are a generation removed. How did you discover them?

Jcb: I got really into watching VHS stuff. My Dad had “Hellraiser” on VHS. »

‘Back to the Future’ Documentary Nears $50,000 Crowdfunding Goal

12 March 2015 6:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fans have raised 90% of the $50,000 crowdfunding goal to complete “Back in Time,” a documentary about “Back to the Future,” in three days on Kickstarter.

It’s the second go-round at tapping fans. The documentary received $45,000 from Kickstarter in 2013, touting the film as being told from the viewpoint of the DeLorean Time Machine.

“Put simply, it’s the ultimate documentary related to the ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy,” said filmmaker Jason Aron. “It’s a film that digs deep into what these movies have meant to our culture. It’s not a simple ‘making of’ documentary, but rather one which explores the incredible, lasting resonance of the trilogy through the eyes of cast members and crew of the films, as well as some of the ultimate fans of the trilogy. Plus, the DeLorean Time Machine itself, of course.”

The film includes commentary from Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Bob Gale, Christopher Lloyd, »

2015 is going to be a huge year for movies. Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7, the final Hunger Games film and the return of a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Force Awakens released in the coming weeks and months. But for many movie fans, 2015 also represents something bigger.

And while only one of them may be close to happening in our reality, celebrations are set for that day later in the year, as is a new documentary celebrating 30 years of the original film.

Director Jason Aron has created a new fan documentary called Back In Time, which looks back at the film and its impact on film and popular culture, »
