The grossest moment in ‘Angry Birds’ has a surprising inspiration

21 May 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When the second trailer for The Angry Birds Movie hit the web in January, what got the Internet talking most was that preview’s extended pee joke. Three of the film’s avian leads, in search of the legendary Mighty Eagle, find the landmark of their hero’s home: the Lake of Wisdom. Chuck and Bomb drink up and swim all around the lake’s sparkling waters, while Red stands offshore, urging his friends to get out of the sacred lake. Then the long-hidden Mighty Eagle makes his appearance out of the cave above the lake — which he proceeds to use as his personal urinal. In the trailer, it’s a 40-second-long joke about unintentional urophagia. In the film, the sequence is even longer, and, yes, you do see Mighty Eagle’s animated bodily fluids, while the trailer’s viewers were only treated to the sound of him relieving himself. »

Why Alden Ehrenreich could be great casting as Han Solo

6 May 2016 3:18 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

It's being reported that Alden Ehrenreich is in final talks to play Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars anthology prequel movie. Though initially surprising, this could turn out to be a great move.

[Mild spoilers for Hail, Caesar! and the Star Wars saga follow.]

Though it may seem that no-one other than Harrison Ford, Nathan Fillion, or Chris Pratt could do justice to the character of Han Solo, the next best thing is someone who's talented, likeable, and can play a character perfectly. Alden Ehrenreich displayed those qualities in the Coen brothers' quirky comedy about the search for meaning, Hail, Caesar!, as the old-fashioned cowboy actor Hobie Doyle, the most straight-shooting and noble of the characters in the film (though the actress that the studio sets him up with, Carlotta, seems like a nice person too).

It's interesting that both Hobie Doyle and Han Solo are essentially cowboys, who don't fit in with most of those around them; but are nevertheless in some ways opposites. »

New Han Solo Will Be Played by Alden Ehrenreich!

6 May 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! As previously rumored, it has now been confirmed that Alden Ehrenreich is the new pilot of the Millennium Falcon in 2018's Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. The actor was chosen out of literally thousands to take over the role of the iconic space pirate previously inhabited by Harrison Ford. This latest Star Wars spinoff arrives Christmas 2018. And it is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Disney and LucasFilm have not yet sent out an official confirmation for this casting, as final negotiations are now in place for Alden Ehrenreich to don that legendary vest and grab Han Solo's blaster. This news comes after an exhausting casting search for Disney and LucasFilm, which had over 2,500 young actors auditioning of the role. Alden Ehrenreich is just one of three actors who made it into the semi-finals.

The other two actors who were close to landing the gig are »

Christopher Miller teases Han Solo Star Wars Anthology movie

4 May 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One-half of the directing duo who will be helming 2018’s Han Solo Star Wars Anthology movie, Christopher Miller, took to Twitter today to tease the upcoming project. In honor of May the 4th, Star Wars Day, Miller posted the following picture…

Can't wait to get "shooting"!#MayThe4thBeWithYou pic.twitter.com/HlteYut6m0

Chris Miller (@chrizmillr) May 4, 2016

Highlighted in the picture is the Dl-44, Solo’s signature weapon that debuts alongside the character in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. In the original trilogy, Solo has modified the weapon by removing its barrel to facilitate his quick draw, which has gotten him out of many sticky situations. The heavy blaster pistol, produced by BlasTech Industries, is known to be one of the most powerful in the Star Wars universe.

Judging by Miller’s tweet, it sounds like filming for what will be the second Star Wars Anthology film, »

Dave Franco Talks 'Star Wars' Han Solo Audition

17 April 2016 7:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Han Solo is one of the most iconic characters in any genre, and he is definitely defined by Harrison Ford, the only actor to ever portray the space pirate on screen. So when former candidate to take on the role Dave Franco suggests that Disney and LucasFilm are struggling to recast a younger version of Han, we can understand why. There are a lot of variables at play in recreating a character that is so ingrained in people's imaginations. No matter who lands the job, some fraction of the fan base is going to be greatly upset. There is just no way around that.

Last week we heard that Alden Ehrenreich, who steals plenty of scenes in this year's Coen Brothers comedy caper Hail, Caesar!, is the front runner to play the legendary smuggler in the Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo movie. But Disney and Lucasfilm have reportedly tested almost »

Sony Claims Their Upcoming Animated Spider-Man Movie Is Groundbreaking

13 April 2016 8:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony dropped two Spider-Man bombs at CinemaCon yesterday. Among them, they thrilled fans by announcing the title for Sony and Marvel’s Peter Parker reboot: Spider-Man: Homecoming. Their second piece of good news was that the new animated film featuring the web-slinger is apparently going to be groundbreaking.

“It’s a vision of Spider-Man that will take your breath away. Conceptually and visually, it will break new ground for the superhero genre,” says Sony.

That statement, while audacious, is still somewhat vague. Groundbreaking could refer to an innovative new style of animation or a different direction from prior Spider-Man features. Of course, it could simply mean the Spider-Man animated feature will follow a different path from the live-action version.

In any case, our friendly neighborhood wall-crawler will definitely start from an excellent base. Slated for release in 2018, the feature will be written and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, »

Sony unveils Animated Spider-Man movie logo

13 April 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday at CinemaCon Sony officially announced that its 2017 Spider-Man reboot is going by the title of Spider-Man: Homecoming, with the studio releasing the official logo for the Marvel co-production [see here].

However, Homecoming isn’t the only Spidey project in the pipeline from Sony, as the studio is also developing an animated feature for the big screen, and thanks to Comic Book we’ve also got a glimpse of the (current) logo for that movie:

So far, we know very little about the animated Spider-Man movie, but it is being written and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the duo behind the acclaimed animated features Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Lego Movie. It’s unclear whether the duo will direct, but given their commitments to the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff, it’s probably unlikely.

The animated Spider-Man movie is set for release on December 21st 2018.

'Spider-Man' Animated Movie Logo Revealed

13 April 2016 12:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The big news out of last night's Sony Pictures presentation at CinemaCon was the new Spider-Man Tom Holland taking the stage, where the official title Spider-Man: Homecoming was unveiled. However, that wasn't the only Spidey news that came out of the convention, with the studio unveiling the official logo for their Untitled Animated Spider-Man Project, which is arriving in theaters sometime in 2018. Here's what Sony Pictures Animation president Kristine Belson had to say about the project last night.

"(It's) a vision of Spider-man that will take your breath away. Conceptually and visually, it will break new ground for the superhero genre."

We first reported on the animated Spider-Man almost exactly one year from today, when Sony announced the project at last year's CinemaCon. The studio had original scheduled the movie for July 20, 2018, but back in December, the studio shifted the release date to December 21, 2018. Unfortunately, the studio didn't offer any plot details regarding this project, »

Rob Bredow Promoted to Chief Technology Officer of Lucasfilm

17 March 2016 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rob Bredow has been promoted to chief technology officer of Lucasfilm.

Bredow has long been one of the most respected technologists in Hollywood. He was a visual effects supervisor and chief technology officer at Sony Pictures Imageworks before ankling for Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic in 2014, with the title of vfx supervisor. Within months of the move, he was appointed VP of new media and head of the studio’s Advanced Development Group.  In this role, Bredow assisted in the launch of Lucasfilm’s R&D unit ILMxLab, which introduced a “Star Wars” Virtual Reality experience to a group of reporters in San Francisco earlier this week.

In assuming this new role, Bredow says he is striving to uphold Lucasfilm’s signature innovative spirit, and do so in a way that prioritizes storytelling.

“We’re not about technology for technology,” the vfx vet told Variety.  “It’s really about creating experiences, »

First image from Seth Rogen’s R-rated 3D animated comedy Sausage Party revealed

1 March 2016 12:37 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Typically, 3D animated films, which include such recent offerings from Pixar and DreamWorks as The Good Dinosaur and Kung Fu Panda 3, are aimed at younger audiences, and while parents can certainly get as much enjoyment from such films as their children, more often than not, they spend close to two hours begrudgingly watching a film that wasn’t made with them in mind.

As a change of pace, this summer, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are bringing Sausage Party, a 3D animated film of their own, to theaters, but instead of its target demographic being children, the raunchy R-rated film is strictly aimed toward adults. The first image from this star-studded animation has been released by Sony Pictures (via Collider) and can be seen below…

Posterized February 2016: ‘The Witch,’ ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ ‘Triple 9,’ and More

4 February 2016 9:56 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.

What’s up with so few movies opening in theaters this February? I’m not complaining since it means a lot less posters to go through as well as perhaps a sign that less crap is being made. Remember when there was an event type atmosphere surrounding every new release because so much money and creativity went into it? Oh the days when there was more good cinema popping up on the marquee than clunkers.

This month sadly doesn’t look to go back to that trend. Along »
