Disneynature’s ‘Penguins’ Continues the Enduring Legacy of Conservation at The Walt Disney Company

Through breathtaking photography and compelling storytelling that is grounded in reality, Disneynature’s Penguins, opening in U.S. theaters today, transports audiences to Antarctica to go on a journey with Steve, an Adélie penguin who sets out to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. Despite punishing weather conditions and predators that include killer whales and leopard seals, Steve’s quest is relatable to modern audiences who will empathize with the first-time father as he navigates parenthood with nothing to go on but instinct.

Penguins, the eighth theatrical release from Disneynature, continues a legacy that dates back to Walt Disney himself. The 28-minute-long documentary Seal Island was the first of 13 True-Life Adventures to be produced by Walt between 1948 and 1960. The films won eight Academy Awards® following their theatrical debuts, and continued to captivate viewers as they were later featured on The Wonderful World of Disney or screened in elementary schools.

Jeremy Renner Says Stan Lee Will Be Watching Avengers: Endgame With Us

In November of last year, legendary comic book creator Stan Lee passed away, and to a certain extent, the upcoming Avengers: Endgame will stand as one big, 3-hour tribute to the writer’s legacy. In fact, if you ask Jeremy Renner, the man will in some ways be right there with us next week as we make that trip to the theater.

As part of the press tour for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, the Hawkeye actor stopped by Seoul, South Korea, where he was interviewed by Cna. When asked what he thought Lee’s reaction would be watching the McU’s Phase 3 finale, Renner offered the following response:

“He’s going to be watching it, brother. He’s watching it. He’s in all of us. He’s going to be watching it.”

No doubt Lee will be on the mind of many filmgoers as they go to see next week’s release,

Wonder Park Review

A successful children’s adventure film fills its viewers with a sense of wonder. Stealing adults back through time to sit as peers with the littlest audience members and share in their feelings of awe. Wonder Park evokes such wonder. In the sense that you may sit and wonder, Why does this film exist?

June is a singular girl. Creative, fearless and brimming with mischief. As an outlet for her vivid imagination, she and her beloved mother have created a hidden world. Wonderland is an amusement park built from their words, laughter, sketches and love. Its plans whispered into the ear of her toy monkey, Peanuts, at bedtime then carried away to wherever the best secrets go.

When June (Brianna Denski) tries to replicate the park in the real world, the rollercoaster of found objects wins her the respect of all the neighbourhood kids and the thrill ride of her life.

Original Avengers Share Touching Stan Lee Stories In New Interview

Avengers: Endgame is right around the corner now and is sure to contain superheroic moments designed to put a tear in the audience’s eye. But there’s one scene we know’s going to happen that we can guarantee is going to be emotional: Stan Lee’s cameo.

His appearance in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Captain Marvel already had me welling up, but now that we’ve had confirmation that Endgame will be the final time we see him in the McU, it’s going to be a mighty difficult scene to watch.

It also seems like his passing has particularly affected the cast of the films. After all, due to his cameos, he’s been a presence on set for the last decade and now, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner have sat down with Marvel Studios head honcho

Avengers: Endgame Confirmed To Feature Stan Lee’s Final Film Cameo

In November of last year, legendary comic book creator Stan Lee passed away, though not before filming a few more of his patented cameo. Last month’s Captain Marvel, for instance, featured an unusually meta take on the tradition, as the writer appeared as himself reading for his part in Mallrats. But in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, it looks like Lee is finally bringing his run of cameos to a close.

Co-director Joe Russo hinted as such while attending a fan event in India earlier this month, and in a recent interview with ComicBook.com, the filmmaker confirmed that Endgame will serve as Lee’s last cinematic outing.

“This was his final cameo that was committed to film,” Russo said. “It was always… Again, I grew up as a Marvel fanatic, and watching Spider-Man cartoon show as a kid with his voice in it. I think anything that affects you as a child,

Captain Marvel’s Original Ending Has Been Revealed

Captain Marvel has been yet another triumph for Marvel Studios.

At $550M and climbing, the 90s-set adventure is well on its way to topping $1 billion – a rare feat for Marvel-owned movies, given only six McU films have been enshrined into the billion-dollar club. The top three are all Avengers films (no surprise there), while Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War currently round out the top six.

That means Black Panther is Marvel’s only non-sequel to gross higher than $1 billion, so as things stand, Captain Marvel is headed towards box office immortality.

And as the post-mortem continues, Marvel Studios editor Debbie Berman has revealed details of the original ending she had planned for Carol Danvers’ solo flight.

I did actually suggest some tweaks to the ending of this film. It used to end with Carol flying off into space alone, and I found that a bit jarring.

DC's Titans Season 1 Arrives on Digital Next Week; Blu-Ray Tba

  • Cinelinx
Last year, DC unleashed a dark take on the Teen Titans story on their new platform, DC Universe. It was called Titans, and next week, you can own the entire first season on Digital! More within...

For years now, Warner Bros. and DC Comics have made a huge effort to deliver darker, edgier adaptations of their beloved superheroes. With network television restrictions, they hadn't been able to go as far as they may have liked with Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Black Lightning, and Legends of Tomorrow. That is, until the DC Universe debuted. With DC's own streaming platform, they were able to finally unleash the full potential of their dark universe, starting with Titans.

The first season of Titans debuted shortly after the release of DC Universe. In my opinion, it was gritty, it was captivating, and, frankly, a badass take on one of the most beloved teams in comic book history,

Alt-Right Activist Claims Stan Lee Would Disapprove Of Captain Marvel

If we had to report every time some right-wing guy on Twitter said something moronic we’d be here all day, but sometimes someone says something so jaw-droppingly vapid that you have to sit up and pay attention.

Said someone is professional troll and Pizzagate conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec, who after seeing Captain Marvel, tweeted: “Imagine if Stan Lee saw what they’ve turned the McU into…,” with the presumed implication being that the comic book legend would be absolutely horrified that Marvel put out a movie about a female superhero.

Given that Stan Lee is actually in Captain Marvel, it’s already an utterly boneheaded thing to say. But wait, the idiocy doesn’t stop there. That’s because Lee was a famous champion of inclusion across his long, long history in the medium. This is the Stan Lee who was the child of immigrants, and who created a

Film News Roundup: Alan Tudyk Voicing Iago the Parrot in Disney’s ‘Aladdin’
In today’s film news roundup, Alan Tudyk is supplying to voice of Iago in “Aladdin,” Atonement Pictures launches and Michael Keaton is narrating “Wings 3D.”

Voice Cast

Alan Tudyk has signed on to voice Iago, the scarlet macaw parrot sidekick to the villain Jafar in Disney’s live-action “Aladdin,” which opens May 24.

Tudyk has voiced characters in six different Disney animated movies, starting with “Wreck-It Ralph” in 2012, followed by “Frozen” as the Duke of Weselton, “Big Hero 6,” “Zootopia” as Duke Weaselton and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” as Knowsmore. He also appeared in Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” in which he played the droid K-2So.

Gilbert Gottfried voiced Iago — named after the villain of William Shakespeare’s “Othello” — as a wisecracking and easily frustrated character, saying at one point, “Look at this! I’m so ticked off that I’m molting!”

Stan Lee’s Captain Marvel Cameo Creates A Big McU Paradox

The new Captain Marvel offers one of the most unique and memorable Stan Lee cameos in the history of the tradition, but as some fans are pointing out, the film’s moment of meta-humor may create a mind-bending paradox fit for a Christopher Nolan movie.

For those who haven’t yet seen Carol Danvers’ solo debut (and don’t mind the impending spoiler), Stan Lee and the film’s titular heroine cross paths on a train that’s traveling through La in the year 1995. As Captain Marvel looks for the Skrull who’s hiding among the passengers, Brie Larson’s character passes the late comic book creator, who seems to be playing a fictionalized version of himself. In fact, to make things extra meta, Lee is rehearsing lines for his cameo in Kevin Smith’s 1995 comedy Mallrats.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Doesn't Have Marvel Or Star Wars Worlds For One Major Reason

When Kingdom Hearts 3 was first announced, fans had hoped that the game would include content from both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Star Wars movies, but no characters from either franchise made an appearance. It turns out that there was a good reason for the lack of Marvel/Star Wars content in Kingdom Hearts 3 and it was due to legal issues.

Kingdom Hearts 2 was released in 2005, while Kingdom Hearts 3 was released in 2019. It was during that major gap between games that The Walt Disney Company purchased Marvel Entertainment (in 2009) and Lucasfilm (in 2012). Even before those acquisitions, characters from Disney's live-action movies or Square Enix's other games would appear in the Kingdom Hearts series. After so many memorable Disney cameos in the past, it was fair to wonder just how impactful the acquisition of Marvel and Lucasfilm properties would be on the future of the Kingdom Hearts franchise.

Stan Lee’s Captain Marvel Cameo Has Been Revealed

As you may’ve heard already, Captain Marvel opens with a tribute to the late Stan Lee that, according to co-director Anna Boden, is leaving audiences in tears. But in the midst of the film itself, Carol Danvers’ McU debut also finds time to feature a mandatory cameo from the legendary comic book creator, and according to a source close to We Got This Covered, Lee’s scene is of an unusually meta nature.

To explain this moment, we have to take you back to year 1995, when a little film called Mallrats first came out. Though the Stan Lee cameo wouldn’t become a regular occurrence in superhero cinema for a few more years, Kevin Smith’s cult comedy sees the writer make a brief appearance playing himself, and in Captain Marvel, the tradition apparently comes full circle.

The Best Animated Feature award was first introduced in 2001. Prior to that, only “Beauty and the Beast” (1991) had managed to earn a Best Picture nomination, with the medium largely ignored in other major categories. Starting in 2009, when the Best Picture lineup was expanded from five to 10 titles, two films — “Up” (2009) and “Toy Story 3” (2010) — have earned bids in both lineups.

‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Wins Oscar For Best Animated Feature

  • Deadline
‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Wins Oscar For Best Animated Feature
It was a career bounce-back moment for the ages: Just 614 days after they were fired as the co-directors of Solo: A Star Wars Story, creative provocateurs Phil Lord and Chris Miller won the Academy Award for best animated feature for Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

“There’s 800 filmmakers who pushed boundaries and took risks to make people feel powerful and seen,” Miller said of the film’s vast creative team and their four-year effort to deliver the animated epic.

For a tandem that built its reputation thinking outside of the box, the Oscar win represented sweet redemption. The duo’s wild-card creativity delivered commercial hits with 21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs but in 2017 their approach got them exiled from the Jedi universe when Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy grew exasperated with their freewheeling approach to blockbuster filmmaking.
