Zootopia reviews

Walt Disney Animation Studios has been on a roll in recent years, with a list of films that includes Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, Big Hero 6, Frozen and the short films Feast and Paperman. Many people would say that the Burbank-based animation studio has been turning out more consistently great films than their Emmerville brother Pixar. Their latest film Zootopia from directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore (Bolt, Tangled) is set to hit theaters in the US in March 2016, and the first trade reviews have begun to hit online as the film is being released early in international markets (under the alternate title Zootropolis).

Does Disney Animation have another hit on their hands or will this be their Good Dinosaur? Find out as we take a look at the early Zootopia reviews through spoiler-free excerpts, after the jump.

10 cloverfield lane viral marketing

A viral campaign for 10 Cloverfield Lane has begun, and it seems to connect directly with the augmented reality game (ARG) for Matt Reeves‘ original Cloverfield. Earlier this month we explained how Tagruato (the Japanese drilling company that produced Slusho that was likely responsible for unleashing the Cloverfield monster on New York City) had new activity on the interwebs. Well, now the official company website has posted an update that directly connects the backstory for 10 Cloverfield Lane to the original Cloverfield. While I’m pretty sure that this backstory isn’t explicitly explored in the movie, I’ll let you choose if you want to learn more.

Hugo Strange AC

I stopped watching Gotham after the first season, but people I know and trust have told me the show has gotten a lot better in the second season as they’ve evolved in to a more serialized show. The Fox crime drama is set to return later this month (Monday, February 29) and we’ve begun to learn more about the upcoming episodes. Last week we learned that Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Fish Mooney will return to Gotham for a few episodes, and now we have our first look at Jurassic Park and Mr. Robot’s B.D. Wong as Batman villain Dr. Hugo Strange. See the first Gotham Hugo Strange photo, after the jump.
