New Posters Show Off Emotional Characters of Pixar's 'Inside Out'

Inside Out

Though we didn't get a film from Pixar Animation this year, thankfully Walt Disney Animation still brought us Big Hero 6 this month. But next summer, the computer animation giant returns with Inside Out, a story that takes us inside the mind of a little girl dealing with her new home in San Francisco. Inside the mind of Riley, we meet all of her emotions driving her life: Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). Now they all get their own colorful close-up, character posters. This means there could be a new trailer on the way sometime soon. Look below!

Check Out an 'Interstellar' Prequel Comic About Dr. Mann's Planet

Interstellar

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!

Watch & Hear: Vin Diesel Says 'I Am Groot' in 15 Different Languages

Guardians of the Galaxy

Some people thought that just because Vin Diesel only had to say "I Am Groot" over and over again in Guardians of the Galaxy that he didn't have much work to do in the Marvel sci-fi adventure. However, you might have seen a video of Diesel in the studio recording his dialogue (sometimes on stilts) and learned that not only did he have to record that line dozens of times, but he also did it in a bunch of foreign languages too. Well, Marvel has put together a cool little montage of the variations on the line, complete with footage from the film, now available on Digital HD before arriving on Blu-Ray & DVD. Watch below!

'Jurassic World' Gets Viral Site for Masrani Global, New InGen Owners

Jurassic World

Following the ominous teaser poster from last month, Universal Pictures has launched a viral site to tease Jurassic World. The website is for a company called Masrani Global, a corporation built on telecommunications which has since expanded to oil, all the profits of which helped founder Sanjay Masrani purchase International Genetic Technologies (InGen) in 1997 after Dr. John Hammond passed away. The site also gives us an introduction to Jurassic World, the operational theme park which has bee up and running since June 2005. And the best part is that there's some new images from the park, including our first look at B.D. Wong reprising his role from Jurassic Park, and Irrfan Khan as Masrani's son. Look!

Christopher Nolan Speaks Up on Sound Mix Issues in 'Interstellar'

Christopher Nolan

Now that Interstellar has been in theaters for over a week, the film is getting talked about more openly. But before it even started screening for the public, there were more than a few complaints about the sound mix that was reportedly meticulously overseen by Christopher Nolan. This wouldn't be the first time Nolan had problems with sound as we all remember how difficult it was to understand Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises teaser scene that played before Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but there have been various issues surrounding the presentation of sound in the film, and Nolan has just responded.

WK Interact Releases Another Cool 'Mockingjay' Propaganda Poster

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I

In just one week, fans will finally be able to see the beginning of the end with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I hitting theaters. But you might remember that over the summer, before the first teaser trailer had even debuted at Comic-Con, there was a cool propaganda poster designed by artist WK Interact. Well, to round things out, Lionsgate had him create one last piece for the film, and this time the Mockingjay herself, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been immortalized on the new guerilla graffiti style poster. We're not sure if they'll be handing this out at screenings or what, but check it out!

What If TARS from 'Interstellar' Had a Real Career on the Big Screen?

TARS

Though there are plenty of people out there who have some discrepancies with Christopher Nolan's sci-fi drama Interstellar, one of the more unanimous points of praise has been for the block robot TARS and his colleague CASE, both of which assist Matthew McConaughey on his mission to save the planet. The robots are fitted with incredible artificial intelligence which allows them to have a sense of humor and even a judge of how honest to be (though it's all regulated by the astronauts themselves). Well, Vulture liked the robots so much that they imagined what it might be like if TARS was a movie star, and it's great. Look now!

Star Wars? Bond? Christopher Nolan on Interest in Other Franchises

Christopher Nolan

With Christopher Nolan's sci-fi Interstellar now playing in theaters worldwide, the director finally gets to breathe a sigh of relief and take a break from all the production work. In the meantime, he's still out talking with press and recently spoke with Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast. Since it's still rare that we get to hear Christopher Nolan talk openly about interesting topics, there are some quotes from this interview that are worth highlighting, specifically where we talks about Star Wars and James Bond and his response to the criticism of his movies. I wish we could do back-and-forth discussions with Nolan for an entire month.

Choose Your Allegiance - First Teaser Posters for 'Warcraft' Movie

Warcraft

Which side do you fight for: the Horde or the Alliance? With BlizzCon down in Anaheim kicking off today, Blizzard has started the marketing machine for the upcoming Warcraft movie directed by Duncan Jones (of Moon, Source Code). There was an early preview of footage at Comic-Con in July, and we expect there to be a big tease at BlizzCon this weekend, but in the meantime a batch of new posters has debuted in the form of choosing your side. This is exactly the kind of marketing they need to launch, because the entire story really is Horde vs. Alliance, and they're going to be playing that up right from the start. The two posters connect to websites where you can sign-up for your allegiance and display their emblem everywhere online.

Russell Crowe's 'The Water Diviner' Set for US Release in April 2015

The Water Diviner

Some news for fans of Russell Crowe, as the actor's directorial debut has finally secured US distribution from Warner Bros. The movie studio has announced (via Crowe himself) that they will be releasing The Water Diviner, directed by and starring Oscar winner Russell Crowe, in April of 2015 after its initial debut in Australia later this year. The film tells the story of an Australian man who travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. We've already featured one official trailer as well as an early featurette for this film, but expect to see more marketing closer to release. Curious to see it.

First Poster for Animated 'Ratchet & Clank' Video Game Adaptation

Ratchet & Clank

About a year and a half ago, we learned from Insomniac Games that they are turning the PlayStation video game series Ratchet & Clank into an animated feature film. The film arrives sometime next year, though we don't know when, and the first teaser poster for the movie has just arrived. Basically, it looks just like a cover for any video game that might have been released, and it doesn't even clarify that this is for a movie. I'm not sure this is going to be something cool for anyone who doesn't like the video games, mostly because this looks exactly like the video game in style and execution, but it's popular, so maybe that's all it needs.

Must Watch: Awesome Old School 90's Trailer for 'Birdman Returns'

Birdman Returns Trailer

"Where were you when you first saw Birdman Returns?" Hitting theaters everywhere next May is the highly anticipated sequel to Birdman, starring Riggan Thomson as the badass bird superhero. Yes, we've seen plenty of comic book movies already but another one can't hurt, especially when it's another one as dark, brooding, and spectacular as Birdman. I love that first one and I've been anxiously awaiting this sequel. It's only a quick tease with some glimpses that give us a feeling of the atmosphere and serious, dark tone of this follow-up, but I'm still excited to see it. Nothing like seeing Riggan put on that Birdman mask again. Enjoy!
