Star Wars Halloween Special

In 1978, the Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS. It quickly became one of the most infamously horrible pieces of Star Wars history. (Until the prequels, that is, hey yo!) Aside from a cartoon that introduced us to Boba Fett, the television special was notoriously bad, showing us Life Day on the Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk where Bea Arthur sings musical numbers. Anyway, moving on…

In a new weird move of strange corporate synergy, Disney is going to air a Star Wars Halloween Special… on ESPN 2 on October 30th 2014. Will this new Star Wars television special go down in flames like the previous Star Wars Holiday special? Details after the jump.

Joshua Budich's Wish I Was Here Poster Print  header

We’ve featured artist Joshua Budich many times in the past few years on /Film. I even own Budich’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off poster from Gallery 1988. To celebrate the DVD/iTunes release of Wish I Was Here, filmmaker/actor Zach Braff (who seems to follow the pop culture print scene) commissioned Budich to create a limited edition poster print for the film. Joshua Budich’s Wish I Was Here poster print is now available, find out more after the jump.

Marvel Phase 3 Kevin Feige

Today in Hollywood Disney held a Marvel Event to announce their plans for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I was in attendance at the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd for the announcements, which have already been covered elsewhere on the site.

After the event was over and the fans in attendance were escorted out of the theatre, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige gave a 20 minute question and answer session answering all of the press’ questions about the newly revealed Marvel Phase 3 slate and even some answers that extend beyond that (phase 4, 5…etc). I was able to record the entire question and answer session on video using my IPhone, and have uploaded the entire thing for you to watch. So hit the jump now to watch Kevin Feige answer all your questions about Marvel Phase 3 and beyond.

Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Incredible Hulk vs. Iron Man in Hulkbuster suit Mark Ruffalo Avengers 2 set interview

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today we’ll be posting a couple of the interviews we conducted while on set. The second of which is with Mark Ruffalo, who is reprising his role as Bruce Banner, aka The Incredible Hulk. You can listen to or read the whole interview after the jump, but I wanted to lead off with Ruffalo’s explanation of how Hulk’s friction with Iron Man in The Avengers: Age of Ultron is a little bit like Cool Hand Luke:

It’s a little bit like Cool Hand Luke that way. You think you could beat me and then I’ll beat the crap out of you… and then I beat the crap out of him. [LAUGHS] It’s kinda’ like that, but not totally like that. It has a surprise — a little twist to it as well.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Robert Downey Jr Avengers 2 set interview

On June 12th 2014, I visited the London set of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today we’ll be posting a couple of the interviews we conducted while on set. The first is with Robert Downey Jr, who is reprising his role as Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. You can listen to or read the whole interview after the jump, but I wanted to lead off with Downey Jr’s explanation of why Avengers 2 won’t fall into the superhero/blockbuster formula of an action-heavy not-so-interesting third act:

There was a Rubik’s Cube to how to make these things have an Act Three — that you’re just going I really hope you like Acts One and Two because now we’ve just gotta do all this stuff. To me, and I think it was the same thing in Iron Man 3, Act Three was the strongest act. I think that this is really gunning for that sort of thing. Because I love movies. I love these kinds of movies. I feel like I’m just a very tolerant kind of consumer with these things, but I also feel like the half-life of — if you noticed just how flooded the market is becoming and likely to become potentially even more so. I think that there has to be a bit of a transcendence of formula. And so without giving too much away, and why I generally just stamped it when the first draft came in ‘cause I thought, “Oh wow, it didn’t fall into that trap.” And I read the last page and I got chills, for a reason I definitely can’t explain. [LAUGHTER] … This is gonna be very cool.
