Watch the First Trailer for Lucasfilm's Strange Magic

21 November 2014 11:08 AM, PST

A couple weeks ago, we first learned that George Lucas had scripted an all new animated movie for Lucasfilm called Strange Magic. While the announcement gave us a release date, Lfl and Disney have now released the film's first official trailer.  Come inside to check it out!

The trailer comes courtesy of Yahoo, and the animation looks pretty impressive.  As for the story...I'm not entirely sold on it just yet.  It looks like it's certainly more geared towards a younger audience, and perhaps that's what's throwing me off.  It's not necessarily bad, just not what I was expecting to see.  

Strange Magic,” a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., will be released by Touchstone Pictures on January 23, 2015.  “Strange Magic” is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night's Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, »

The Stand has Turned Into a 4 Movie Franchise

21 November 2014 7:40 AM, PST

Warner Bros. has been working on an adaptation to Stephen King's The Stand for a while now and seemed to be making some serious progress when they hired Josh Boone last year to write and direct the feature. Now, however, it's been revealed that the film has turned into a franchise that will span across four movies.  Come inside for the latest report and our thoughts on it. 

Josh Boone was brought on last year to help bring an adaptation of The Stand to life for Warner Bros.  While on Kevin Smith's Babble-On podcast, the writer/director did a lot of talking about the upcoming film, discussing how he got the job, the film's budget, and the fact that now, it's bloomed into a franchise instead of one 3 hour long film: 

I really wanted to do an A-list actor, really grounded, credible version of the movie. I sold »

Summit Wants Tom Cruise to Play Ramirez in Highlander Reboot

20 November 2014 1:18 PM, PST

Looks like the wheels are churning once again over at Summit Entertainment on their long-gestating Highlander reboot/remake, in that reports have come in now that the filmmakers are hoping to court Tom Cruise to play the mentor role of Ramirez, previously brought to life by Sean Connery.  Come inside for the details!

The Highlander reboot over on Summit Entertainment has been in the works for a Long time.  Sadly, after changing directors a few times, it still hasn't seen much movement in a while.  So imagine my surprise when last night, The Wrap dropped a scoop last night pertaining to Highlander

At this point, the interest appears to be one-sided, as Cruise has been busy shooting “Mission: Impossible 5” and isn't focused on future projects at the moment. Should Cruise decide to engage with the project, it's possible that the mentor role could be beefed up to accommodate a star of his magnitude. »

The First Pitch Perfect 2 Trailer Hits All the Right Notes

20 November 2014 9:37 AM, PST

Pitch Perfect surprised audiences when it initially released and garnered a following of those who wouldn't normally be into such movies.  As such fans have bene eager to see what's going on with Pitch Perfect 2, and the first full trailer for the film is finally here to break it down.  

I'm going to apologize for the overly punny headline, but come on, that's too easy to resist!  Regardless, the trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 is here, and it's pretty damn good: 

The scale of the film's story is obviously bigger, as their singing group is now joining the world stage.  While that's all well and good, the trailer makes it clear that the little moments will be the things to remember (much like with the first film), as there are certainly elements of emotion and character growth sprinkled in there.  The trailer makes little mention of some of the newer characters, »

Destiny Offering Expansion Buyers A New Sparrow

20 November 2014 9:31 AM, PST

Are you excited for the new expansion pack hitting Destiny? Yeah, us too! To get you even more pumped, Bungie has released a new Sparrow for season pass holders and upcoming expansion pack buyers.

The trailer showcases what is so special about this new Sparrow. It's faster, oh and you can do tricks with it! The trailer showcases several kick style tricks and even flips in the air, how awesome is that?

How do you get it? Easy. If you buy the season pass you can go to the Postmaster in the Tower right now to redeem it. If you plan on buying the expansion, you can head to the Postmaster when the expansion releases on December 9th to redeem it. There is no word in the release that states if Xbox players need to wait longer, so I'm assuming all platforms will get the Sparrow on December 9th!

Call of Duty Tops $10 Billion, Best Entertainment Release This Year

20 November 2014 9:10 AM, PST

You may have heard about a game called Call of Duty? Well that's because it is one of the biggest releases every year, and Advanced Warfare is no different.

According to Activision, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare had the biggest entertainment release of the whole year, in terms of revenue! Activision noted it wasn't just other video games it topped, it was books, music, and even movies included.

Along with yearly win, Activision also touted that the franchise as a whole has topped $10 Billion dollars in a "Life-to-date" momentum. This means that the franchise has made more money than top movie franchises such as The Hunger Games, Iron Man, Transformers, and even The Avengers.

Of course the franchise has also seen more releases up to this point as well.

"We poured our hearts into making Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare an epic ride, and we are pleased with the performance, »

Comic Review: Batgirl #36

20 November 2014 6:45 AM, PST

After taking in DC Comics’ latest issue of Batgirl, I regret not having jumped onboard a month earlier. Issue #35 launched the series back in time to the younger years of Barbara Gordon’s battle against crime. I can’t begin to tell you what a breath of fresh air the creative team of Cameron Stewart, Brendon Fletcher, and Babs Tarr has contributed to the monthly title.

Barbara Gordon is settling in and eager to start graduate school. Her first day of academics is interrupted when twin assassins riding motorcycles threaten the safety of the students. They wield swords and seem to have a particular target in mind: Batgirl.

Writers Cameron Stewart and Brendon Fletcher have taken the world of Batman and done the impossible. They’ve made it relevant for not only fanboys, but high school girls and the youth of today in general. As I perused Batgirl #36, I couldn »

When's The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer Landing?

19 November 2014 4:41 PM, PST

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is done and in existence in the world, so the burning question becomes, when are we going to see it? Rumors have been flying fast and furious, so let's take a look at the latest and see!  

Fans are hungry for anything relating to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and have been since the film was announced a couple years ago.  Now that filming has wrapped on the production people are more eager than ever.  If you've been following me on Twitter, you've likely seen me talk about the first teaser trailer for the film being done and roughly the things I've heard related to it's timing. 

This is where things get tricky.  Myself and many others have heard a few different time frames for the release of the trailer, many of which were centered on landing sometime Before Thanksgiving. »

PS4 Year In Review - Look To The Future

19 November 2014 7:18 AM, PST

A year ago the PS4 released and the console has been a monster in sales ever since. Sony themselves probably didn’t expect the massive appeal of the console, but then again they did live through the PS2 era. With massive shortages early on, Sony has been breaking sales goals ever since and the PS4 still hasn’t let up. The question remains, does the PS4 live up to this hype train it has created?

When the console first released we loved it, and we still do. The unit itself looks sexy as heck, even with it’s oddly dynamic slant to it. After a year of use, the only issues I have with the console is the fact it heats up a lot, and then it can be loud as it attempts to cool down. It is a substantial increase in both areas compared to PS3 models. Yet it »

Kenneth Branagh's Live-Action Cinderella Gets a Trailer and Poster

19 November 2014 6:14 AM, PST

Disney's upcoming live-action Cinderella movie is coming early next year, but today they're finally pulling back the curtain on this classic fairytale to give fans their first real look at the film in the form of trailer, an all new poster, and some brand new images.  Come inside to check it all out!

We've seen glimpses (not many) here and there of Kenneth Branagh's upcoming version of Disney's classic Cinderella story, but today brings a wealth of new information.  Finally we get to see some footage of the movie in action, along with new stills and a poster: 

So the trailer seems to give away much of the story (or all of it), but considering it's a fairytale that's been told a few different times, it's not like we don't know it already still.  What'll be interesting for fans is how this version plays out and is interpreted on the big screen. »

Brighten Up Your Day With The Peanuts Movie Trailer

18 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST

We've already seen a teaser for the upcoming Peanuts Movie, but today brings a more full trailer (despite it not landing until late 2015) that packs in the Charles Schulz charm and generally will make your day a little more cheery.  Come inside to check it out.  

Bear in mind, this new trailer doesn't give much up in the way of story information.  In fact, it doesn't give much of anything away.  Instead it offers us a good look at the animation and how the filmmakers are translating the influential comic strip to the big screen.  

Frankly, I'm loving this animation style a lot. While it's CGI still, it has a more classical feel to it that's very reminiscent of the old Charlie Brown animated specials. The charm is certainly there and brings the warm fuzzies to my gut when I watch it.  While we don't know what the film will »

The Interstellar Wormhole is Real

18 November 2014 4:35 AM, PST

Have you seen Interstellar yet? Have you ever wondered if the wormhole was real?

Well it is, in theory.  Wormholes and black holes have never been depicted in cinema the way the science community has always thought they would look...until now.

Director, Christopher Nolan enlisted the help of physicist, Kip Thorne to come up with an equation to visually show what a wormhole would truly look like.  Based on Einstein's General Relativity equations Kip was able to draw up the mathematical blueprints of how science believes a wormhole would act if light were to pass through it.

The team at Double Negative took his equations and entered them into their graphics software and could not believe what they were seeing so they asked Kip and he assured them it was exactly how he envisioned it through his equations.

Take a look at this video and see for yourself:

Is Universal Sabotaging themselves With their Monster Movie Strategy?

17 November 2014 8:18 PM, PST

 Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley has revealed that the shared universe of movie monster they recently announced will be “more in the action-adventure genre” to cash in on the popularity of the super hero film craze. Is this an unwise strategy? Is it advisable to turn horror films into action movies? Will this work or will this decision sink the shared universe before it starts?

Superhero action films are certainly the popular trend in recent years. Marvel and Disney, in particular, have made piles of cash bigger than the one the Joker had in the Dark Knight off their comic book adventure films.  It’s not surprising that other studios want to cash in on the current wave. But what does seem unusual is that Universal wants to use action to gain an audience for their planned series of horror movies, featuring the classic Universal Studios monsters.

Two new websites landed today.  The first is a viral website for the actual "park" itself, MasraniGlobal.
