The Adventures of Hiro and Baymax Continue in First Trailer For Disney's Big Hero 6 Series

Disney's Big Hero 6 was such a fun movie! I have no idea if we'll ever see a feature film sequel, but we are definitely getting a new animated series coming to the Disney Channel and today they've released the first trailer! It looks like it could be fun to see the continuing adventures of Hiro, Baymax, and the rest of the team as they fight to save San Fransokyo! Hopefully, the series tells some good stories.

The adventure continues for 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax. If dealing with the academic pressure of being the new kid at the prestigious San Fransokyo Institute of Technology weren't enough, it’s off campus where things really get tricky. Hiro and Baymax, along with their friends Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred, unite to form the legendary superhero team Big Hero 6, protecting their city from

Did You Catch That Other A-List Deadpool 2 Cameo?

Did You Catch That Other A-List Deadpool 2 Cameo?
There is an amazing cameo in Deadpool 2 that you probably missed. Given the success of the first movie, it's actually not that hard to imagine that the producers were able to convince a few big names to appear on screen in a small capacity, if only for the fun of it. While a couple of those A-list cameos were easy to spot, this one was pretty easy to miss, but that only adds to the charm of it.

Cable (Josh Brolin) uses time travel and goes back to roughly our present time in order to stop Russell (Julian Dennison) from becoming a tremendous bringer of death in the future. Before Cable first arrives in our time, we see a couple of what can only be described as stereotypical rednecks having themselves a not-so redneck conversation about the inefficiency of toilet paper. The two are drinking beer by their pickup

Every Cameo You Might Have Missed In Deadpool 2

2016’s Deadpool was already full of hilarious easter eggs and pop culture jokes, but Deadpool 2 goes above and beyond the pale. With the benefit of being the sequel to a smash hit success, it was able to bring several key names on board who turned up for cameos. Likewise, some of the film’s crew show up for blink-and-you’ll-miss-it roles as well.

But who are all these cameos we speak of? Well, assuming there aren’t still more to uncover, here are all of the ones to keep your eye out for in the film. Some of them you’ll definitely have spotted, while others might have been harder to discern.

Either way, here’s who we’ve picked out:

The X-Men – Just when Deadpool’s ranting about the fact that he only ever sees Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead at the X-Mansion, it’s revealed that the

Deadpool 2 Featured Another A-List Cameo That Everyone Missed

By now, you’ve probably either heard about Brad Pitt’s cameo in Deadpool 2 or seen it for yourself. The movie star makes his first appearance in a superhero film ever for a split second when it’s revealed that he’s the invisible X-Force member The Vanisher. However, it turns out that he’s not the only massive Hollywood name who showed up in the X-Men universe sequel.

If you’ve seen the film, you’ll remember that Terminator-like moment when Josh Brolin’s Cable travels to the present from the future and hijacks a truck belonging to a couple of rednecks. In true Deadpool style, the pair are discussing the pros and cons of toilet paper before the time-travelling cyborg shows up. You wouldn’t know it from the heavy make-up, beard and hat he’s wearing in the scene, but one of these rednecks is actually Matt Damon.

Deadpool 2 opened in theaters last night and I'm sure a lot of you already went out and saw it. If you did, there were a few surprising cameos in the film that you may have missed.

“Deadpool 2” is an insane amount of fun

Hollywood Heroes™: The superhero genre always runs the risk of exhausting audiences with endless amounts of sequels. Characters that initially are new and compelling grow stale, just going through the motions again and again. Then, there’s Deadpool/Wade Wilson. This character, first truly seen a few years ago in his film of the same name, was a breath of fresh air. Now, how would his sequel be? Well, I’m delighted to report that his movie is just as good the second time around. It’s a giant blockbuster that’s also a weird little comedy. I loved it. Furthermore, it’s actually one of 2018’s best films. Yes, you read that right. The flick is, obviously, a sequel to Deadpool. The actual synopsis that Twentieth Century Fox put up on IMDb is a clear joke, but here it is anyway: “After surviving a near fatal bovine attack,

Lucasfilm’s Lawless Rogues Assemble For Solo: A Star Wars Story Character Posters

Han Solo, Qi’Ra, and the ice-cool Lando Calrissian.

That’s just three of the core characters underpinning Solo: A Star Wars Story, and thanks to Lucasfilm’s latest media dump (spoilers: it’s a raft of sun-kissed character posters), we now have a chance to get acquainted with the rest of the crew, beginning with Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett.

Said to be something of a mentor figure to the young, untrained Han, Harrelson’s infamous crook will no doubt prove instrumental all throughout our smuggler’s origin story. It’s one that involves a daring heist, too, which goes some way to explaining how the likes of Val (Thandie Newton), Dryden Vos (Infinity War‘s Paul Bettany) and Emilia Clarke’ Qi’Ra fit into the plot.

Their mission? We’re not quite sure, but we’d wager it has something to do with the Conveyex and its precious

9 Big Takeaways From That Slick New ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Trailer

9 Big Takeaways From That Slick New ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Trailer
Because it’s the only one of the new “Star Wars” movies being released in May instead of December, the marketing campaign for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” has been kind of strangely compressed. Disney doesn’t start marketing the new “Star Wars” movie until the previous one has been released, and so we’re already on our third big “Solo” trailer of the year after the lengthy Super Bowl spot, the first proper trailer and now, just two months later, what one presumes is the final trailer before the movie hits on May 25.

The shortened marketing calendar also means we’re still getting some big new things in this new trailer (watch it here if you haven’t seen it yet) just six weeks from its launch. So let’s dive into this thing and see what we can glean about the fifth “Star Wars” prequel.

It’s Paul Bettany!

One of the biggest straight-up film production stories of 2017 was the exit of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller from “Solo” after they’d already filmed most of the movie, sparking months of reshoots under Ron Howard’s watch. One of the casualties of that whole ordeal was that Michael K. Williams didn’t return for the reshoots and was replaced with Paul Bettany.

And there Bettany is, playing a crime lord named Dryden Vos. We technically don’t know for sure that Vos is the villain of “Solo,” but since Vos is a crime boss who hires Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and friends to do a job, and there’s otherwise no villain presented in any of the ads so far, and given that Woody Harrelson’s character tells Han in this trailer to “assume everyone will betray you” — it feels like a fairly safe guess that the big crime guy will be doing some betraying.

Also, look at that face. That’s not a good guy face.

Also, this is not a good guy weapon

Late in the trailer, we see ole Dryden Vos wielding that nasty looking energy blade thing while looking extremely angry. So, yeah, he’s gotta be the bad guy.

Is Chewbacca’s wife making her first on-screen appearance since the “Star Wars Christmas Special”?

It certainly looks like a solid possibility that Malla will appear, what with this brief shot of Chewbacca and another Wookiee sharing a tender moment.

Kessel? Kessel.

If there’s one thing that’s a safe bet for any new “Star Wars” movie in the Disney era, it’s callbacks. They love, love, love to reference things from previous “Star Wars” movies, and given how closely both of these standalone spinoffs are tied to the original film, it’s often felt like they exist for the sole purpose of making references.

Anyway, we all remember the very famous line from “Star Wars” in which Han claims to have “made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.” Given Disney’s nostalgia-driven creative focus on these things, we’ve all long assumed that said Kessel Run will happen in this movie. The old Expanded Universe described Kessel as a dirty and barely livable wasteland of a mining planet — and that image certainly fits the bill.

Judging by that color scheme, if my guess is correct then that grimy location at the beginning of the trailer could also be Kessel.

The mystery of this cloudy space battle grows

We’ve seen lots of random shots from this strange environment — including ones with giant tentacles — and I still have no idea what to make of it. Is this in a planet’s atmosphere? That’s not really how space works I don’t think. Not that “Star Wars” has ever been overly concerned with how space works. And not that I actually know much about how space works.

The point being: what in the world is this?

“Everything you heard about me is true.”

Given all the weird turmoil on this project, it’s tough to have a ton of confidence in it overall. But it certainly feels like, if nothing else, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian will be worth the price of admission.

Oh hey it’s another wacky droid

The droids in the new “Star Wars” movies have been very hit or miss. That Alan Tudyk droid from “Rogue One” was the highlight of the movie, but Bb-8 was basically Jar Jar in “The Last Jedi.” That this one, voiced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is named L3-37 does not exactly inspire confidence because that’s an extremely dopey real-world reference to make.

That said, I actually laughed when L3 sarcastically says “So glad we took this job!” near the end of the trailer. It also looks like it’s going to have some antics with Lando — I guess it’s basically his Chewbacca? I don’t know. Anyway, L3 seems promising based on the trailer but its name is troubling.

Yay, weird locations!

I may not exactly be a fan of these new “Star Wars” movies, but I will definitely always be on board with the cool sets Disney keeps spending outrageous amounts of money to build. And this snowy mountain outpost is super cool.

“I got a really good feeling about this”

Okay, that was funny.

A Number of Roles You Never Knew Alan Tudyk Played

Not knowing that Alan Tudyk was in a role was at times pretty easy since he’s one of those actors that kind of sits behind the action or right in the middle of it where your focus is kind of forced onto the main actors. He goes sight unseen a lot of times since he’s not the main actor but is still one of the best supporting actors in the business. He’s had parts that people never knew about but would agree that would ruin the movie if they were left out. That’s why he’s such a great actor, he

Tony Gilroy on solving the “mess” of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

When Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Ron Howard would be replacing Chris Miller and Phil Lord as director of Solo: A Star Wars Story, fans of the blockbuster franchise felt a certain sense of deja vu.

A similar – although not quite as extreme – situation happened on the previous Anthology movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with Lucasfilm bringing in Oscar-nominated filmmaker Tony Gilroy to work alongside Gareth Edwards, overseeing extensive reshoots and the post-production process.

Speaking to The Moment with Brian Koppelman podcast (via THR), Gilroy has now spoken for the first time about his work on the movie, and his efforts to salvage the “mess” that Lucasfilm had found themselves in.

“It was just a mess and fear that they gotten themselves in,” said Gilroy. “I’ve never been interested in Star Wars ever, so I have no reverence for it whatsoever. I was unafraid of that. And

‘Final Space’ Review: An Impossibly Cute Green Squishy Alien is TV’s New Best Friend in Delightful TBS Animated Series

‘Final Space’ Review: An Impossibly Cute Green Squishy Alien is TV’s New Best Friend in Delightful TBS Animated Series
At some point, within minutes after the last episode of “Final Space” airs on TBS, some enterprising YouTuber will take every Mooncake moment from Season 1 and edit them all into one supercut (and then minutes after that, someone else will make a ten-hour long version because that’s how the internet works now). That endless loop of the tiny squishy alien’s little anxious squeals and joyful reassurances will be a true and pure gift. Mooncake is here to become both a beloved green savior and the TV world’s new best friend. Prepare yourselves accordingly.

Good thing there’s still a pretty wonderful show happening in between each “Chookity.” For starters, “Final Space” — based off the previous web work of creator and animator Olan Rogers — has a human protagonist named Gary. Serving out the final days of a five-year prison sentence on board the Galaxy One spacecraft, Gary is

‘The Tick’: Amazon’s Superhero TV Show Got Better When It Stopped Trying to Be a Movie

‘The Tick’: Amazon’s Superhero TV Show Got Better When It Stopped Trying to Be a Movie
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for the ending of “The Tick” Season 1.]

Woe to the next showrunner who triumphantly stands before a group of TV writers and proclaims their series to be more like a “[insert number here]-hour movie.” That formulation has plagued many shows over the past decade, even if there’s not always a one-to-one correlation between that approach and the quality of a show overall.

Ben Edlund, creator of The Tick and the man behind a third TV version of the superhero he brought to life on his comic’s pages, may not have conceived of the most recent Amazon season as a movie in multiple parts. But the first half of the season, released last August, mostly played out like one. Rejecting a lot of the episode-by-episode beats of a more traditional TV show, the result was a half-season of a comedy in search of an anchor.
