Disney Infinity reveals unreleased Doctor Strange figure

21 June 2016 5:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney’s toys-to-life range Disney Infinity was cancelled last month, meaning that after the recently released Finding Dory set, no more figures will be released.

That hasn’t stopped Disney from pouring salt on the wound however by revealing a pretty cool-looking Doctor Strange figure that would have been coming this year:

Inflated sales expectations and mismanagement were revealed to be the primary causes for Infinity’s cancellation, causing two years of unannounced projects to be binned. They included Cars 3, Star Wars: Episode VIII, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Coco, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok sets. This is the first time we heard that Doctor Strange would have been a part of the game. »

4 June 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Will the shocking allegations surrounding Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's acrimonious divorce affect their careers? On Depp, veteran box office tracker Paul Dergarabedian says, even with accusations of domestic abuse levied against him, "Johnny is a huge star, he's a huge brand. This is not a good thing, but is this something that will dog his career forever? If history tells us anything, it's very doubtful." One veteran Hollywood insider agrees, but says it won't be as simple as hoping that time will make audiences forget about the scandal. "He's going to need to do a big sit-down with »

Amber Heard Shows Bruises in New Photos of Johnny Depp’s Alleged Abuse

1 June 2016 7:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorce and the actress’ domestic violence abuse allegations against the actor intensify, People magazine has released a cover story investigating the abuse claims.

This week’s issue features new photos of Heard with facial injuries, including a bruised eye and cut lip, allegedly caused by Depp in a December 2015 fight mentioned during her sworn declaration for a restraining order in Los Angeles County Court on Friday.

“There was one severe incident in December 2015 when I truly feared for my life,” she wrote in the court filing in which she also said she “endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse” during the entirety of their relationship.

The People article doesn’t include additional details about the altercation, but cites a source close to Depp, who says their relationship was rocky from the get-go.

Johnny Depp’s ‘Pirates 5’ Injury Occurred During Fight With Amber Heard (Report)

31 May 2016 5:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After declaring in court that she has “endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse” during the entirety of their relationship, Amber Heard claims that the injury that estranged husband Johnny Depp incurred that halted filming on “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” occurred during a physical altercation.

According to ET, Depp reportedly injured his right hand while punching a wall during an argument the couple had in Australia in March of 2015.

The injury and resulting surgery cut into filming for more than a month. Depp had to fly back to the U.S. to receive medical treatment and eventually had a pin inserted in one of his fingers.

Disney, the studio behind “Pirates of the Caribbean,” declined to comment on the matter.

Los Angeles police are currently investigating Heard’s domestic violence allegations against Depp after the actress filed a claim on Tuesday. She didn’t file »

Can Johnny Depp’s Reputation Recover From Abuse Accusations?

31 May 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For almost thirty years, Johnny Depp has thrived as one of our most beloved and popular box office stars. But just as his latest feature, Walt Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” was being released worldwide last week, allegations of domestic abuse were put forth by his estranged wife, Amber Heard, raising questions about his career and reputation going forward. (The allegations came just days after Heard filed for divorce — and asked for spousal support — following a 15-month marriage.)

Depp was performing in Lisbon with his band Hollywood Vampires when Heard made her allegations. In his absence, his attorney, Laura Wasser, said in a court declaration that “Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”

A swarm of media converged on Los Angeles Superior Court on May 27 to cover the proceedings, in which a judge granted Heard a temporary restraining order that requires Depp to stay 100 yards away. »

Johnny Depp vs. Barnaby Joyce: 13 Months of Threats, Insults and Unintentional Humor

25 May 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Perhaps it's time to call off the dogs. If Barnaby Joyce was ever expecting to receive a sincere apology from Johnny Depp, he's been barking up the wrong tree. It's been 13 months since Amber Heard illegally imported her dogs, Boo and Pistol, into Australia (where her husband was filming Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales)—but the doggy drama continues. On Monday, Depp appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and mocked Joyce's complexion, joking that the ruddy-faced politician looks like he was "inbred with a tomato." The lawmaker addressed Depp's comments in his hometown of Tamworth on Tuesday, saying, "I'm inside his head; I'm pulling little strings and pulling »

Terrence Malick’s ‘Voyage of Time’ Set For IMAX Release This October

1 May 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It didn’t show up in the Cannes line-up as some predicted, but we won’t have to wait too long for Terrence Malick’s long-gestating Voyage of Time. The Ennio Morricone-scored project — which is technically two films, one a more educational 40-minute IMAX version narrated by Brad Pitt and the other a feature-length cut narrated by Cate Blanchett — is described as “a celebration of the earth – from the birth of the universe to its final collapse.”

Finally, we have our first official confirmation on when it will arrive. Buried deep in an IMAX press release (via One Big Soul) about its first quarter 2016 earnings, they reveal that an October 7th, 2016 release is set for the IMAX version, which now makes a Tiff and/or Venice premiere likely. With only IMAX reporting now, there isn’t an update regarding the feature-length version, but hopefully distributor Broad Green Pictures will »
