To be released with Pixar’s new film Inside Out coming next Fall is a short about a volcano and how it is both destructive and creative. This idea works well for a film about a bunch of emotions. From the image, you can see a happy volcano, but this won’t stay that way, as the destructive portion will soon be view able. It’s plot is creative and looks well done on the animation front. Pixar’s new film Inside Out, which is receiving high early praise. Along with it, Lava will be released. What do you guys think of Pixar’s next two original ideas? Comment below and let me know.
Kurt Russell recently revealed a planned production start date on Tarantino’s the Hateful Eight. It is set to begin shooting in January of next year most likely slated for a late 2015 release. This comes months after Tarantino canned the script due to leaks, but in recent statements he is more optimistic about doing the film due to how well the Hollywood table read went down. The table read was going to be rewritten by Tarantino to incorporate old and new ideas he had. I’m excited for his adaptation now that it’s back on. Hopefully, Eight will prove Tarantino a success in the Western genre. Given the success of Django and his (more or less) period piece Inglorious Bastards, Tarantino hopefully has nailed his skills at writing good old fashioned revenge. As for Kurt Russell it is a great casting choice and one can hope his comments are true. Anyway, what do you think of Hateful Eight? Comment below.
A week before comic con and Marvel keeps building up the hype. Yes, today after showing a new female Thor off for the comics and possibly the films yesterday, they just released images from behind the scenes of the second Avengers film. As these images were released, Marvel comics also showed a teaser for a new comic to be released tonight on Colbert. Of course, all of this is ahead of the grand spectacular convention in San Diego which will encourage people to go to Marvel’s Panel this Saturday. However, since I will not be attending comic con, I will talk about each of the images down below…
Captain America Winter Soldier was a huge success both critically and financially this image seems to combine both styles of a modern and old fashioned Cap. Although this is just an image of two characters standing around, they’re avengers on screen together. Thor looks similar but more beaten up in this image, probably in a gathering place to meet or recruit temporarily with other avengers.
A behind the scene costume image does not reveal any other new avengers costumes(expect that for comic con) but it is a humorous look at all the main old avengers and their new designs. Nick Fury’s costume is up here, but he is only slated for a cameo appearance at this point.
Hawkeye’s new costume is actually more of a successor to the comic books version without a cowl. I like this image as it shows him possibly get more screen and action time with the avengers. This may be a solo image but previous recorded images have shown him with the likes of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
Located at most likely, the newly christened Avengers Tower, a meeting or gathering of the tired avengers. They(Iron Man, War Machine and Hawkeye) seem to be speaking about something dire while Cap and what looks like Hulk(Banner) and Thor are having a bit of fun. This image teases team ups of multiple avengers with Black Widow being the only original avenger not present.
Another look at the infamous twins looks clear and true to the concept art Marvel showed in their TV special this year. The characters costumes fit the universe, but like all of Quicksilver’s costumes it is quirky, or like Kick Ass’. Scarlet Witch looks far better and more dark. They seem even from the photo to have a good dynamic.
Deemed the science bros, Ruffalo and Downey Jr.(Banner and Stark) look afraid or in awe of something they’ve created. Also located in Avengers Tower. Nothing much here, but another team up image to give excitement.
Black Widow looking much like her Iron Man 2 self, she looks to be on reconnaissance or a new mission, also look at the new toys on her wrists. It looks like a more true adaptation of the comic costume much like Hawkeye’s suit.
The only true BTS image with Whedon directing Scarlet Witch(Olsen) and Hawkeye(Renner) in a fight in a foreign country. This was also was seen in set vids earlier this year with Ultron. However I question how much they will use the twins since all we’ve seen of them is from this set.
These set photos give us a good look at the production of Age of Ultron and exciting and clear new looks at Avengers. Obviously comic con is coming up and Marvel will release more in time, but there is a possibility of a teaser being shown in comic con for a release with Guardians. There’s whispers it may be the after credits scene. Otherwise expect one in the latter part of the year meaning October to December. Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for May 1, 2015. Comment below on what you think of the set photos as well as what Marvel will do at comic con.
On Marvel Entertainment’s Twitter page today they dropped a tidbit of information to the public which reads “We’re announcing an all new thundering title tomorrow on ABC @TheView.” At 11 am et, 10 am p/c the next Marvel blockbuster will be announced. However this is odd. Although most people recognize this as synergizing Disney and Marvel, this is not a fit. The audience of The View is not interested in caped crusaders and superheroes. The View is not a show for superheroes, it’s gossip. This makes the project even harder to identify. Of course based on the accounts post most people are guessing Thor 3 because of the thundering keyword, but that won’t receive press. Just Thor? Plus it suggests a new character. Marvel has no plans for any female solo films or TV shows that are not already in development or ones that were already announced, but this post would suggest so. Ms. Marvel seems like the best possibility considering MCU chief Kevin Feige’s interest in the character, but he has expressed interest in exploring her in Phase 4 not for a Phase 3 film. This is out of left field considering all the rumored schedules being tossed around by many fan and Hollywood sites revolving around con announcements. Set intentionally before Comic Con my guess is this is supposed to steal the “thunder” from the rest of the news to come out of the con this year. Under the circumstances you should be getting pretty excited. Comment below on what you think the film will be and when it will be released I’m eager to know. Tune in tomorrow to ABC! Here’s most likely to least likely of Marvel movies TBA for tomorrow. (Doctor Strange will be announced at Comic Con not tomorrow, most likely)
Two cult comedies cancelled by rating ridden networks have finally found new homes. Community, one of my all time favorite comedies and Enlisted , a surprising newcomer, both have found a new platform. Move aside Netflix, YahooScreen a pretty much out of nowhere streaming service, only known for rebroadcasting SNL skits, has finally entered the playing field. This will deal a huge blow to television networks because Yahoo joins Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Crackle and YouTube as the maker of original content online. The death of TV is coming based on the rapidly increasing amount of content sites. But the real news is that these shows are back. With Yahoo uncancelling cult series it will put them on the map. This will also pave the way for more revivals and original content for the free streaming service. However this also may be unlikely considering Yahoo’s lack of recognition. Right now, Yahoo is in negotiations for the sophomore season of Enlisted,although it is said to be going very well. Under the circumstance that Yahoo does not receive Enlisted, it’s possible Hulu can pick it up due to having all the remaining episodes of Season 1 there. Comment below on what show you want to be revived. Mine personally is Terra Nova.
On HBO they recently green lit a new series based on the 1973 film, Westworld, about a futuristic theme park gone wrong. In a recent interview at TCA, Abrams, the shows creator said “Hope we’re going to start filming this summer, We’re casting right now. Announcements will come when deals are made.” Abrams goes on to praise the exciting scripts and says there will be a change of tone from the original film. Christopher Nolan will co direct the pilot with Abrams and stand by as a co creator of the show. No word yet on the premiere but it is said to take place next spring. Come back for more Westworld and other movie and TV news. Comment below.

In the poster, Caesar is getting an upgrade. He seems to be in his battle gear as the apes have taken over the world, because of the decrease of human population due to the Simian Flu teased in the first film. This apes film will see probably the time where they have started to form a government as well as a language or vernacular. As the title would suggest it is only the beginning of this saga, with the plot suggesting humans trying to make peace with the ape overlords, but it could get way out of hand. Continue reading Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Poster
After nearly 30 years of action fun, John McClane is about to hang up his coat after his service to the US government.
