Frozen Is Getting A Theatrical Follow-Up, Here's What To Expect

1 hour ago

We know Frozen's gotten a lot of hype since its release last year, but we just can't let it go. Not even in summer. Sorry. Apparently, Disney's not ready to let Frozen go either, as they've announced the return of Frozen's Anna and Elsa for a new animated short, titled Frozen Fever. We have details and some speculation about what it'll be about and when we'll see it... Disney made the announcement tonight within the ABC Television Network special The Story of Frozen: Making an Animated Classic. The short will reunite directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck with song writers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the latter of whom are cooking up an all-new original song. Frozen Fever Is set to debut in Spring 2015 and will be set during Anna's birthday. Elsa and Kristoff. "Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but »

New Set Photos Could Tell Us Everything We Need To Know About Batman v Superman's Lex Luthor

1 hour ago

Comic book movies and Easter eggs go together like peanut butter and jelly. When it comes to telling superhero stories, directors really love including little tidbits and details from the source material, and usually do so by hiding them in the background - leaving them to only be found by die-hard fans. Looking at recent photos from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it appears that director Zack Snyder has a very interesting one of these planned for his film- and if it means what we think it means, it could actually tell us a lot about the direction the movie is taking for its portrayal of legendary villain Lex Luthor.

Watch 19 Minutes Of Vicious Amazing Spider-Man Hate

1 hour ago

Like it or hate it, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a film that had some important flaws seriously affecting its total effectiveness. You can't totally fault it for that fact, as even the best films manage to get themselves into some serious jams that only some creative screenwriting can get them out of. However, this isn't one even one of the best movies of the summer, much less the entire history of the Marvel comics-based franchise. This is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the most polarizing film of the summer, and quite possibly the year. (Frozen was a 2013 release, so it doesn't count). That said, the internet's twin titans of takedown, Cinema Sins and Screen Junkies are capping off the summer movie season with a double barrel snark and inquisition. Now you're probably thinking, "Was that really a Cinema Sins Honest Trailer? Isn't that supposed to be Screen Junkies' racket? »

Watch The Stars Of Airplane! Reunite To Promote Wisconsin Tourism

2 hours ago

Here's a fact that I only just learned today: directors David Zucker, Jerry Zucker, and Jim Abrahams all originally hail from the great state of Wisconsin. By itself, this probably can't even be qualified as "fun" trivia, but it does create a bit of context for this new Airplane!-themed ad put together to try and help increase tourism in the Badger State: The Zuckers and Abrahams (best known by the directing-team acronym Zaz) lent their filmmaking skills to Wisconsin's tourism board to make this fun little TV spot, and they brought along some impressive friends to help the whole thing be that much more special. Robert Hays reprises his famous role as ex-fighter pilot with a drinking problem Ted Stryker, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is back to play himself a.k.a. pilot Roger Murdock (who just can't seem to get enough of Wisconsin's beautiful landscapes). There's even a special »

Loki Finally Gets His Own Movie Thanks To A Fan

3 hours ago

Tom Hiddleston's Loki isn't a titular lead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, instead losing the spotlight to both Chris Hemsworth's Thor and the collective Avengers, but some fans don't seem to think that's really fair. Hence why we now have the "feature" below, which is a re-edited cut of Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World called Loki: Brother of Thor: As you can tell by watching the movie - which clocks in at a little over two hours and 15 minutes - this is no mere cut, reassemble and paste job. Instead, Vimeo user Loki Odinson has actually done his best to create something close to what an actual Loki movie would look like. To do so, he collected footage not only from the aforementioned features, but also from bonus material available on the various Marvel Studios Blu-ray releases. Take, for example, the "visions" at the »

Edge Of Tomorrow Just Hit A Major Milestone For Tom Cruise

5 hours ago

On its opening weekend, Edge Of Tomorrow (yes, that's the title we're sticking with) got its ass kicked byThe Fault In Our Stars. Already, everyone was jumping on the train blaming the film's title, marketing campaign, and even Warner Bros itself for the film's apparent failure at the box office this past June. However, in a year of weak numbers all around, perhaps it's time to re-examine Edge Of Tomorrow's box office profile. Especially today, as it has officially crawled past the $100 million mark. Gitesh Pandya of Box Office Guru called the shot this morning with the following tweet: EdgeOfTomorrow officially crossed $100M dom mark w/ $100.15M. Been 9yrs since #TomCruise did this in non-mi lead role.. Gitesh Pandya (@giteshpandya) September 2, 2014 This afternoon, the aforementioned site confirmed what Pandya had claimed but with slightly different numbers. According to Box Office Mojo, Edge Of Tomorrow has accrued $100.12 million in the »

The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy Is Getting The Best Screening Ever

6 hours ago

Maybe you've been to a marathon screening of each Lord of the Rings movie. But you've never been to one like this. Lincoln Center in New York City has played host to stage productions, movie shoots, concerts and operas, but next spring, it's symphony space will be home to The Lord of the Rings in Concert for just five days. Gothamist tipped us to this extraordinary cinematic event.

This Is What Jason Momoa Would Have Looked Like In Guardians Of The Galaxy

7 hours ago

If critical and audience reception of the film is any indication, then most of us will agree that Dave Bautista truly killed it in his performance as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. But in the months before Bautista signed on for the role, Marvel Studios was actually looking at someone else for the role: Jason Momoa. One can't say how the presence of the Game of Thrones actor may have changed the movie - for better or for worse - but what is interesting is that today we have a much clearer idea of what he would have looked like in character: His reflexes are too fast!

Meet The Scrappy Pit Boss Character Cut From Guardians Of The Galaxy

7 hours ago

Movies are complicated creations that can change dramatically from the first draft of a script to the film's final cut. And one of these changes for Guardians of the Galaxy is pictured right here. Shared by James Gunn via Instagram, this post reveals a scrappy Pit Boss who apparently had a run-in with Drax before he drunk dialed Ronan the Accuser. The caption for this behind-the-scenes Guardians of the Galaxy pic reads: "#gotgpicoftheday One of the tough things about making a film is sometimes you have to cut performances from the film, not because there was anything wrong with the performance, but for time or plotting reasons. Such was the case with @maramacorlett, who played the pit boss running the Orloni-f'saki table in the Boot of Jemiah. She was amazing, learning all of her lines in a foreign language we created. Although you can still see her in the film »

8 hours ago

It's hard to believe, but Keanu Reeves turns 50 today. And a solid chunk of those five decades has gone toward creating movies that -- whether heralded or hated, brilliant or bonkers -- have been wildly entertaining. To pay tribute to the star whose name is Hawaiian for "cool breeze over the mountains," we've come up with five ways to toast the wonder that is Keanu Reeves. Pick your poison (as in picture) then pair it with an on-theme treat to make tonight's dinner and a movie a perfect celebration of one of Hollywood's most fascinating and unflappable stars.

Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game Win The Telluride Battle For Oscar Buzz

8 hours ago

The thing about "buzz" . authentic, palpable buzz . is that it has to be earned. Certain movies can go into a film festival with studio-generated "buzz." And the quality of the film either strengthens or decimates that energy. But the films that have The Goods produce their own buzz because they are excellent films that benefit from word-of-mouth publicity. One such film with serious momentum at the moment is Benedict Cumberbatch.s The Imitation Game. Directed by Morten Tyldum, The Imitation Game tells the story of World War II codebreaker Alan Turing, a brilliant English mathematician who helped turn the tide of the global conflict by shattering Germany.s Enigma code, allowing the Allied forces the chance to gain the upperhand on the world.s adversaries. Clearly, a hero.s life awaited Mr. Turing following the war, right? Um, not exactly. In fact, quite the opposite. Alan Turing, you see, was »

Monsters: Dark Continent Gets A Full, Terrifying Trailer

9 hours ago

Before Gareth Edwards became famous for making Godzilla, the filmmaker was best known for his work on the 2010 indie film Monsters. That feature felt like a bit of a test run for Edwards. take on one of Kaiju cinema.s most enduring creations, even if it was quiet and restrained where the Godzilla films of old were often boisterous and destructive. Monsters garnered so much love from the general public that a sequel seemed like a viable idea . albeit without Edwards sitting behind the camera -- and you can see the first trailer above. Tom Green (no, not the comedian who gave us Freddy Got Fingered.) has stepped in to guide the follow up film, Monsters: Dark Continent, through the arduous gauntlet of production. Today we.ve got the very first trailer and the following logo for his take on the material, thanks to the folks over at The Flickering »

Proof That DC And Warner Bros Plan to Do A Solo Aquaman Movie

9 hours ago

Over the past year or so, DC Comics and Warner Bros have been accelerating their entry into the connecting franchise game. What started out as a sequel to 2013's lukewarm blockbuster Man Of Steel turned into the beefed up Justice League prequel we now call Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which promises to introduce heroes that we've never seen in cinematic outings before. One such hero that's been dangled before our eyes is Aquaman, and though we're still lacking an official confirmation, we have another back-channel clue that the son of Atlantis will rise from the seas and onto movie screens. Flickering Myth brought the news forward that Warner Bros is registering internet domains for four potential projects that the DC Continuum could use in any of its multiple near-future release dates. While Shazam, Wonder Woman, and Justice League are not as surprising . considering how far they've gotten with »

This Is What Hawkeye Was Going To Do In Captain America: The Winter Soldier

10 hours ago

In the summer of 2012 The Avengers took the summer by storm. It gave new fuel to fire our love of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. Plus resurrected our interests in Black Widow and The Hulk. Then there's Hawkeye. The steely archer of this dysfunctional superhero ensemble got the short end of the stick, playing Loki's brainwashed henchman for most of its running time. And it turns out Hawkeye got spurned once more in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in which his killer action scene was scrapped before it even shot. In an interview with Screen Rant, Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors confessed that Jeremy Renner was initially supposed to have a pretty thrilling part to play in the sequel. However, it's one that not even the DVD release will show you, though a commentary track alludes to it. Joe Russo explains: "What it was going to be, we »

Tuesday Movie Memo: Hey Academy, Consider Guardians Of The Galaxy For The Oscars

12 hours ago

Very few of us might have guessed it going into the 2014 movie year, but at the end of the summer, James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy is the year.s biggest hit. The biggest. As in, no movie has earned more money in 2014 than Guardians of the Galaxy. It.s a powerhouse. It.s our leader. But is this just the beginning? As we transition from the summer season to the fall, our minds start to drift away from blockbusters like Guardians and on to the annual awards race. But why do they have to exist separately? Can.t we keep talking about Guardians of the Galaxy as we talk about Oscar contenders? Because, I argue, if Marvel and Disney play their cards right, then James Gunn.s movie can contend for Oscars early next year. How? We discuss in the Tuesday Movie Memo. We have been so happy »

12 hours ago

There are no shortage of reasons to take a trip to Australia. From swimming in the crystal clear waters near the Great Barrier Reef to cuddling up with kangaroos and koalas, the country is a tourist.s dream destination. If that all sounds a little too pedestrian for you, then perhaps a vacation built around exploring the Mad Max 2 Museum is more your speed. Adrian Bennett is one of the many fans of the 1981 cult classic, but he wasn.t content to just talk about his love for The Road Warrior on Internet message boards and Facebook. No, Bennett took things to another level . and moved his family from England to the Outback so he could open the world.s first, and only, repository for The Road Warrior memorabilia.

Dracula Untold International Trailer Reveals New Footage And Much Rage

13 hours ago

Maybe you think you know the story of Dracula, but Dracula Untold is unfurling a drama-packed revamp of the classic vampire tale full of gruesome war, family loyalty, and heinous curses. In the trailer above, see Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Fast & Furious 6) as Vlad Tepes, a man who will risk anything to save his family from the greedy maws of war, even if it means becoming a monster. Dracula Untold, or Dracula: Year Zero as it seems it's being called overseas, is intended to be a key step in Universal Pictures effort to reboot their classic monsters, like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, Creature From the Black Lagoon and the Wolfman. While the announcement of that plan is relatively recent, this particular re-imagined origin story has been a long time in coming. Back in 2007, The Crow's helmer, Alex Proyas, was hired to direct the project. »

Can You Guess The Acclaimed Director Behind These Gap Ads?

14 hours ago

Lots of big name directors earn a sweet payday for a short jaunt of work helming commercials. But can you guess the auteur behind the four new ads for The Gap? We'll help you out by dropping one hint for each of the videos here. The first clue is that this director got his start helming commercials, including one for the American Cancer Society that involved a smoking fetus. He later went on to helm music videos before making the leap to narrative filmmaking. Despite the use of black and white in all four of these ads (tipped by JoBlo, spoilers at the link), this director has never made a black and white feature film. Though these ads are fueled by a jaunty and jazzy romance, this director is better known for crafting gripping crime dramas that are often mind-bending, and anything but "normal." He has a film hitting this »

The Edgy Cameo Disney Refused To Let Stan Lee Film

23 hours ago

James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy is Marvel's weirdest, most outrageous film yet. It is also the first film of their's that has really pushed the edges of what can and cannot be gotten away with in terms of a Marvel/Disney films' sense of humor. Take the now infamous "Jackson Pollock"/Blacklight line that Chris Pratt has on board his ship, The Milano. Not even James Gunn could believe he got away with including those lines in the finished film. It is, indeed, a line that one wouldn't expect a Disney movie to contain, which makes the moment all the more funnier. However, there were still moments that had to be cut by the studio's mandate. Collider grabbed a moment with both James and his brother Sean Gunn at Dragon Con this weekend, and one of the moments that they had to alter was the appearance of intergalactic »
