Cars 3: The first official look at concept art from Cars 3 reveals a brand new character racing alongside Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson).

Way back in March 2014, Disney Pixar announced that two long-awaited sequels were finally moving forward, Cars 3 (June 16, 2017) and The Incredibles 2 (June 21, 2019). Last August, we saw the first poster for Cars 3, but we haven't seen or heard much from this animated sequel since then. While we still don't know when the first trailer may debut, new concept artwork has arrived offering our first look at the iconic Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and a brand new character named Cruz Ramirez.
USA Today has the first look at this artwork, along with details about the story from director Brian Fee. Cruz Ramirez will serve as Lightning McQueen's new trainer, as he tries to stay competitive with up and coming racers like Jackson Storm, who is said to have "trounced" McQueen in a race. Here's what director Brian Fee had to say about this new character Cruz Ramirez.

“A lot of this was done at the very last minute.”
2007’s Grindhouse experiment between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino was viewed as something of a misfire upon its initial release, but in the years since it’s enjoyed something of a reappraisal. Most viewers seem to have a strong opinion as to which of the two films is best, but regardless of where you land on that point there’s no denying that Rodriguez’s Planet Terror is far more attuned to the “grindhouse” aesthetic.
Where Death Proof feels like a slickly produced Tarantino film, Planet Terror is a gloriously intentional mess of jarring cuts, cheap tropes, B-movie dialogue, and crowd-pleasing beats. It’s not great cinema, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun and one of Rodriguez’s most consistently entertaining movies.
Keep reading to see what I heard on the Planet Terror commentary!

The much-discussed Space Jam 2 now has a director (Justin Lin) to go along with its star (LeBron James), and fans of the original (well, me, anyway) have just one question: How will the sequel's soundtrack ever live up to the original? You know, the Space Jam soundtrack. The one that gave the world "I Believe I Can Fly" and eventually went platinum six times over? That soundtrack. Released on Nov. 12, 1996, below please find a celebration of the singular piece of art that is the Space Jam soundtrack. "Fly Like an Eagle" In 1996, Seal had just won three Grammys for "Kiss From a Rose, »

Spending a night in with a stoner flick has been many-a college undergrad’s right of passage since, well, people have been getting stoned! On this April 20, 2016—a national holiday for those who indulge—we’ve rounded up eight of our favorite stoner movies and the actors that make them awesome, man. 1. “Up in Smoke,” Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong (1978)This 1978 stoner classic is the one that started it all and made Marin and Chong kings of the stoner brand. The first of their string of stoner buddy comedies, “Up in Smoke” follows Cheech and Chong as they unwittingly smuggle a van full of weed from Mexico to Los Angeles. 2. “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” Sean Penn (1982)Two-time Oscar winner Penn made his leading man debut as protagonist Jeff Spicoli in this high school classic about boys and girls behaving badly in the California sun.

If you spend any time on social media then you know that the Internet absolutely adores cats. From kitties that aren’t particularly happy to talented felines that can play a piano, they are all beloved online. That’s why it’s no surprise that Chris Chung’s Catlateral Damage was a big success on KickStarter. After all, the first-person simulator is the closest most people will ever get to the experience of being a cat.
The game does a good job of replicating a cat’s abilities, as players will be able to leap a surprisingly high distance, meow whenever they want, and use the controller’s triggers to swat with the feline’s left and right paws. It’s a solid control scheme, and one that makes a ton of sense after a brief tutorial level. You’re even able to use your claws to pick up smaller items. »
