People of the TV world, we have a Disney dilemma. While we're anxiously awaiting the Frozen gang's debut on Once Upon a Time, there are still a whole bunch of Disney characters we'd love to see appear on ABC's fantasy hit. Yes, we're just that greedy. Some of our picks are pretty iconic roles (You still terrify us, Cruella de Vil!), but a few may not be the most obvious of choices, like a certain trio of witchy sisters from Hocus Pocus or an elf from The Santa Clause. Plus, we included our dream pick for a Disney princess that Once's co-creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz told us they are hoping to eventually introduce. So check out our new gallery of 12 Disney characters, both »
Disney and Marvel recently announced that the Avengers would be joining the Disney Infinity roster. Not only that, but the toy box creation game will also see a heavy influence in the form of playsets, with things like Stark Tower, Asgard, etc, all available for your imaginative perusal.
I’m beyond excited to see Marvel brought into the fun and weird world of Infinity, and while having the Avengers is great (seriously, I am not complaining one bit), here is a rundown of other things I would love to see infused into the Disney Infinity 2.0 edition down the road.
1. The X-Men
The Mutants known as the X-Men cover enough ground to be their own expansion pack down the line, if along with the team you would also get access to sentinels, the X-mansion, utopia, Magneto and the brotherhood as extra villains, etc. They could even put a very cutesy version »

Kevin Smith‘s retirement seems like a moot point. Right now, the director has four projects in various stages of development: the walrus horror romp Tusk, the Christmas horror romp Comes the Krampus, the apocalyptic comedy Helena Handbag and Clerks 3, which Smith swears he’ll shoot, at some point – just not at any foreseeable point in the near future. Oh, also there’s Hit Somebody, which went from a movie to a six-hour miniseries, but hasn’t been mentioned much lately. Tusk is already rolling towards a vague late-2014 release, which means it’s on to the next film in the great Kevin Smith retirement-o-rama. Which is Comes the Krampus. Or was Comes the Krampus, anyway, because the film is no longer titled Comes the Krampus. Now, it’s the much more user-friendly The Anti-Claus. Probably a smart decision in the long run, given that the Krampus is less than a household name (excluding, of »

• More on the UK box office
Our compact half-term school holidays always concentrate the minds of UK families, offering rich potential for bonanza box-office over a highly compressed time period. And so it has proved with the half-term just ended: from Friday 14 February to Sunday 23 February, The Lego Movie has taken an astonishing £19.72m in just 10 days of play, an average of nearly £2m per day. Add in the previews from the previous weekend, and the film's tally to date rises to a stonking £21.88m. That's more than the lifetime totals of the two lowest-grossing Pixar films – Cars and Cars 2 – and is also ahead of both Kung Fu Panda pictures from DreamWorks Animation. »

Today’s film is the 2009 short Big Breaks. The film stars Vanessa Britting and Amanda Young alongside Elizabeth Banks, Martin Starr, Jane Lynch, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lucy Punch. Young and Britting also co-wrote the short with David Krumholtz, who also directs. Krumholtz has been seen in a number of roles over the years, from tv shows such as Numb3rs, Partners, and The Playboy Club to movies such as Serenity, Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, and The Santa Clause.
