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.
Yesterday, The View and Marvel Entertainment announced a new title would be given on the View today. Such an odd pairing gave rise to female movies and TV rumors. That was quickly shot down when on The View it was revealed that the new comic book heroin is actually a female Thor. Which gives rise to more questions such as, Will Thor die in phase 3 to be replaced by this female Avenger? Most people think Thor can’t die because he’s a god but he can due to his separation from his hammer. From his films we learned he can bleed. However you must make this fan knowledge. The replacement portion could be like Shazam’s origin where an ordinary person becomes something more. On The View they announced her eventual replacement in the comics during a ten episode arc this October which still could mean Thor 3. Considering that don’t get ahead of yourself, although this is an interesting choice for a film it is unlikely to be announced until comic con or even after in 2015 or 2016. I was a little disappointed but who wouldn’t be excited for a different take on a old character. What do you think of the change? Who should play female Thor? Comment below.
I posted an article about Big Hero 6 yesterday to introduce characters and images from the new film and coincidentally a trailer was released this morning. This film is not Eastern in ideas after all. It seems odd to create a balloon robot, but he steals the show much like Josh Gad in Frozen. This trailer’s animation is beautiful and feels like a real environment. Such animation is probably done by what looks like Pixar animators. The characters are immediately likable from the lines that they do have, but this introduces the plot quickly without giving the audience too much. Surprisingly, the screenwriters also make this movie funny. I have not found many Disney films funny with the exception of Tangled which has multiple music numbers that are unorthodox mocking their previous films. They try to hard with Frozen to directly mock their own movies, and Wreck it Ralph is not funny, but very very interesting. However, Big Hero 6, like I said yesterday, is not your average Disney film. I will expect this to be a big hit considering it’s released right before a holiday and has massive appeal for fans of the original anime, the film’s excellent trailer and for all those Disney fans out there. TRAILER: A Comment below on what you think of the trailer.
