It's no secret that Disney loves putting easter eggs referencing their previous films in all their animated projects, and Big Hero 6 is no exception. And since the production of Frozen overlapped with the Marvel comic book adaptation, there are a few little nods to the monstrous musical hit in the film. Of course, there are many more easter eggs to be found in the film outside of Frozen, and you'll be able to track them all down when the film hits Digital HD & Disney's Movies Anywhere service on February 3rd followed by the Blu-ray Combo Pack on February 24th. But for now, check out the Frozen easter eggs in the video below!
The latest film from director Paul Thomas Anderson has gotten a wide release in theaters yet, but Inherent Vice will be at your nearby theater soon enough. But if you're amongst the limited theater crowd, and you've already partaken in the drug-fueled, detective story (Sound Off here) that is thoroughly engaging and mind-boggling, then you'll want to check out one of the recent episodes of comedian Marc Maron's spectacular podcast "WTF with Marc Maron." It's a two-hour discussion talking about everything from living in Los Angeles to his attraction to Boogie Nights, as well as growing up in show biz and much more.
We've featured some great artwork recently playing tribute to films like Alien and Pulp Fiction, not to mention holiday favorites like Home Alone and It's a Wonderful Life. Now Turkish artist Murat Palta has paid tribute to some iconic movies, both new and old, in a very unique style. Palta has used the historical Ottoman (also called miniature) painting style to illustrate films like Star Wars, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, A Clockwork Orange, Inception and more. They're impressive, detailed, and are even depicted in the past, exchanging cars for horses and carts, lightsabers for flaming swords. Look below!
Though we may not be getting the Edgar Wright version of Ant-Man, we're greatly anticipated whatever project the filmmaker decides to take on next. In the meantime, fans of Wright's breakthrough film Shaun of the Dead can occupy their time with a stage show adaptation approved by the director himself. Almost Legal Productions has put together a live stage adaptation, complete with musical numbers and audience participation, of the zombie comedy, and after premiering in October, it's coming back to the stage in the next few months. And we have a trailer showing off what you can expect from the production. Watch now!
Throughout the year, we've featured some cool artwork from Poster Posse hyping up films like Disney's Big Hero 6, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. But the latest efforts of artists paying tribute to films with their incredible art work is for a film that hit theaters decades ago. You may not realize it, but this year is the 35th anniversary of Alien, the sci-fi horror classic that introduced us to terrifying xenomorphs and the tough-as-nails Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), and Poster Posse has just rounded up some awesome pieces for the film's anniversary, and we've posted our favorites below. Look!
There's already a toy based on the dancing baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy coming soon, but now a more high quality collectible version of the pint-sized tree is on the way too. Hot Toys has just unveiled their version of baby Groot, and aside from being only a 1:4 scale figure, this is still probably going to be the best representation of the little guy we'll get. He comes with interchangeable heads, bendable arms to be posed with the best dance moves, and it's something that every fan of the Marvel Studios film is going to want. We've got some sweet shots of the cool collectible figure that you can see just below. I am Groot!
If you're looking for last minute Christmas gifts for the kids in your family that you want to terrify and scar for the rest of their life, then we have a real treat for you. In case you haven't heard, The Babadook is one of the breakout horror films of the year. The debut feature from Jennifer Kent actually resulted in the director getting a meeting to direct Wonder Woman (even though she didn't get the gig), and now you can own one of the chilling parts of the movie: the storybook crafted specifically for the movie. Complete with terrifying illustrations, this is a cool replica that anyone who loves the movie will want immediately. Look!
Highway to the danger zone… Gunna take it right in to the danger zone!! Now these are some must-have poster prints, if you're lucky enough to get your hands on one. Our friends at SlashFilm have posted photos of the new print for Tony Scott's 1986 action-drama classic Top Gun designed by Gabz being sold by Odd City Entertainment. The print is unique because it was printed on holographic "foil" paper, meaning it shimmers like it's metallic and can be flipped and both sides show the kick ass Top Gun artwork. So awesome. I'm a huge Top Gun fan, I mean, who isn't? Tom Cruise, fighter jets, Anthony Edwards, frickin' Tom Skerrit, it's the best. This art highlights the fighter jets above all and if you're a big fan, it's a must have.
It's the holiday season again, so surely you're watching Christmas movies. One of my favorites since a kid has been Home Alone, and I watch it at least a couple times when the snow starts falling. Sadly, it's not the kind of holiday film that has any merchandise you can use to decorate your home for the season. But thanks to artist Matt Ryan, if you want to show your love for the film in cool cinephile fashion, you can. Ryan has crafted a movie poster for Angels with Filthy Souls, the faux film noir that Kevin watches ("I'm eating junk and watching rubbish!") after his parents have "disappeared," and it's just an awesome piece. Look below!
There's a certain amount of nostalgia that fans of The Dark Knight will always have when it comes to the original 1989 adaptation of Batman from director Tim Burton. That film and the sequel paved the way for more mature comic book movies, even if they don't hold up quite as well with the passage of time (though I still love them). Well, here's something cool you may not have known about Batman Returns. In what feels like perfect mimicry of the real world, there was once a plan for Batman Returns to feature a scene that took place in a Batman store, right in Gotham City. It was scrapped, but here's proof it existed.
It might be the 30th anniversary of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but for some reason the celebration hasn't been as rampant for the adventure sequel that's actually a prequel as it has been for Ghostbusters. However, when it comes to Raiders of the Lost Ark, there's something pretty awesome that has just surfaced online that might be the greatest piece of movie merchandise ever made. From Firebox, the same people making the Temple of Doom bowl that makes it look like you're eating monkey brains, you can get yourself a candle that looks like Major Arnold Ernst Toht (Ronald Lacey). Look!
First of all, if you haven't seen Interstellar yet, then don't read any further, as this post will contain several spoilers for Christopher Nolan's sci-fi film. One of the more surprising moments during this grand sci-fi journey is the revelation that Dr. Mann is still alive on the planet he was tasked with exploring as a potential new home. Equally surprising is that the character is played by Matt Damon and he appears to be the saving grace of the mission, at least until he's not. Now a prequel comic book tells the story of how Dr. Mann (and his robot KIPP) arrived on the icy, desolate planet in the film, and how he began to forge data to make it seem like his planet was hospitable, just so someone would come rescue him. Check it out!
This weekend is when that cool art exhibition inspired by movie sequels that were never made opens up, but that's not the only place you can find awesome big screen artwork for your walls. Hero Complex Gallery is opening up their latest "Kung Fu Theater" show in Los Angeles, and while the title might indicate this will only focus on movies with martial arts, it's actually much more broad and includes a variety of Asian film tributes. From anime hits like Princess Mononoke and Akira to The Karate Kid, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and more. There's some impressive pieces here, and one is even on bamboo. Look!
It's been over a year since Alfonso Cuaron's isolated space drama Gravity hit theaters, and the film has been available on Blu-Ray and DVD for quite awhile now. However, a new version of the film is hitting Blu-Ray, and while double dips for anniversary or special editions aren't always worth the money, this one is pretty interesting. While we normally don't cover home video stuff, an upcoming Diamond Luxe Blu-Ray edition of Gravity has caught our attention because not only does it have audio featuring Dolby Atmos Technology, but it will feature a "Space Silent Version" of the film without Steven Price's score in place.
