that's what I'm talking about Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater is using the momentum he built with Before Midnight and Boyhood to finally move forward on That’s What I’m Talking About, the film that has been described as a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed & Confused. It’s not an actual sequel, but a 1980-set film that follows set of characters as they go to college. Now Megan Ellison has come on board as a producer, and Annapurna Pictures will partially back the project, with Paramount set to release it in the US. Read More »

Stan Lee Cameo

One of the staples of a Marvel movie is the Stan Lee cameo. He’s been in all the MCU movies to date, all five Spider-Mans, both Fantastic Fours, two X-Mens, Hulk, and Daredevil. But he never shows up as the same character twice… or so we thought.

The Stan Lee theory posits that the Marvel legend has secretly been playing the same character all along –namely Uatu, the Watcher. That, of course, would mean that all the Marvel movies take place in the same universe, even the non-MCU ones. Explore this delightfully bizarre Stan Lee Watcher theory with us after the jump.

Cool Stuff: U-Command Wall-E Remote Control Toy

U Command Wall-E Remote Control

More than almost any Disney character in recent memory, everyone wants a Wall-E. He’s cute, he’s got personality, he’s helpful and he cleans up after you. What could be better than that?

Unfortunately, we’ll never own an actual Wall-E because they don’t exist. He’s a figment of the imagination of director Andrew Stanton and hundreds of other talented people at Pixar. There are some cool Wall-E toys though, and fans have even taken it upon themselves to build ultra-realistic versions of the robot.

Disney has now done something right in the middle, releasing a “U-Command” Wall-E, which is remote controlled by an infrared waves. It has all kinds of articulations in the hands, face, voice controls and more. Check out the U-Command Wall-E Remote Control video below. Read More »

David Fincher Utopia

More and more filmmakers are making the jump to work in television, where the stories that studios will never finance as mid-budget dramas can flourish as long-form narrative experiments. Cary Fukunaga and Steven Soderbergh have done significant work with True Detective and The Knick, respectively, for which each director took charge of the entire season, rather than just directing an episode or two.

David Fincher only occasionally sat in the director’s chair for a couple episodes of House of Cards, but he’s really taking the plunge with his next series. Utopia sees Fincher reunited with Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) as they adapt the UK series of the same name for HBO. (That’s the show about people who possess a text that supposedly predicts future disasters, and not the new Fox reality TV disaster.) This time, Fincher will direct every episode of the show’s first season.

Inherent Vice trailer

Here’s the first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s new film Inherent Vice, which is based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon. This does a great job of setting up the basic story beats right at the outset in a manner that is funny and effective, and which aptly communicates the tone of the novel. And then it gets a little goofy.

And that’s great, because Inherent Vice should be a little bit goofy, and a bit weird, and downright unpredictable. Those who’ve read the novel will spot many little flourishes and visions in this trailer that suggest that PTA has at least hewn close to the spirit of the book. And for those who haven’t read the novel, we won’t yet give away all the meanings behind the bits of this Inherent Vice trailer. Just sit back and enjoy it. Read More »

Groot

Each of the Guardians of the Galaxy were lovable in their own special way, but if we’re being honest the real heart of the team was Groot. The taciturn tree-creature was equal parts badass and sweet, and his adorable dance moves made him the must-have toy of the season. Too bad Disney’s been dragging its feet on actually putting out said toy.

The good news is that the company is getting closer, as Dragon Models announced today that it will release a 7″ Groot toy. This one looks a lot more like the Groot of the film than that earlier Funko bobblehead did. The bad news is that it’s still not really the Groot toy we want. Hit the jump for details on the new Groot toy. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet. Why haven’t you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet?)
