Optimus Prime Movie

Since plans for another sequel in the primary Transformers franchise appear to be more dead than Cybertron, it sounds like Paramount Pictures and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are rethinking how they might keep Transformers alive on the big screen.

This winter will bring us Bumblebee (watch the teaser trailer here), a spin-off focusing on a solo adventure for the yellow Autobot as he meets a teenage girl in the 1980s, not unlike how he became acquainted with Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) in the first live-action Transformers movie from 2007. If all goes well with Bumblebee, we might get to see Autobot leader Optimus Prime get his own spin-off too. Read More »

Incredibles 2 Warning - Screen Slaver

Incredibles 2 hit theaters this weekend, and in case you didn’t hear, it was quite the hit at the box office. The film broke the box office record for the biggest opening weekend in the history of animation with an estimated $180.2 million (the more precise figures will come this morning). But it didn’t entirely go off without a hitch, because some viewers has an unpleasant experience when they went to see the anticipated Pixar sequel.

In Incredibles 2, the villain known as The Screenslaver uses hypnotic, flashing videos to put people into a trance and do their villainous bidding. This means that several times throughout Incredibles 2 there are repeated light flashes and strobes that have the potential in incite problems for viewers dealing with epilepsy, migraines, vision impairments, seizure conditions, vertigo (specifically flicker vertigo), autism, ADHD, and PTSD. One viewer took notice of this issue and garnered up enough support online so that Disney asked all theaters to deliver an Incredibles 2 warning about this potential issue that might arise for some viewers.
