at-at star wars

Construction on Star Wars land is ongoing at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, but we still haven’t seen much in the way of concept art since the Star Wars-themed theme park lands were announced at 2015’s D23 Expo. I’m sure we’ll learn a lot more about Disneyland’s Star Wars Experience (as it is rumored to be called) at D23 Expo in July.

But right now, the construction photos are finally beginning to get exciting now that everything is going vertical. New photographs show structures that appear to be framing for two life-size Galactic Empire Imperial AT-AT Walkers. Let’s check out photos of the Disneyland AT-ATs under construction below.

Update: Disney has released an official video confirming our original AT-AT scoop. Hit the jump for more info.

the matrix

Yesterday, a shocking piece of news was unleashed upon the world: Donald Trump’s 2005 income tax papers finally proved that rich people pay much less percentage-wise than you and me and that tax changes he’s trying to get approved will allow people like him to pay even less! And then, Hollywood responded with some shocking news of its own. The Hollywood Reporter broke a huge entertainment news story: Warner Bros is developing a reboot of The Matrix without the involvement of original franchise creators Lilly and Lana Wachowski and possibly starring Michael B. Jordan.

My immediate response is that this is a horrible idea. After dwelling on it, I compiled a list of reasons to leave this franchise alone…and then decided to play devil’s advocate and also look at the reasons why The Matrix should be rebooted.

the muppets

ABC’s The Muppets television show revival was short-lived. While the series got favorable reviews, there was a sizable backlash from parents who didn’t think the adult-skewing humor was suitable for family viewing. After six episodes the network replaced showrunner Bob Kushell with Kristen Newman as part of their plans to creatively overhaul the series, but it was too little too late, and the ratings lead to the show being canceled at the conclusion of its debut season.

Frank Oz, who helped create and perform the Muppet characters of Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Animal, Sam Eagle and more, has now chimed in to explain why he believed The Muppets failed. Hit the jump to read his comments.

orson welles

Filmmaker Orson Welles has left behind two holy grails for film aficionados to chase. One is the footage cut from his original version of The Magnificent Ambersons, which as far as anyone can tell, doesn’t exist anymore. The other is The Other Side of the Wind, which is the long-uncompleted final film from Welles. Frank Marshall, who served as a Production Manager on the original production, has been trying to get this important film completed for over forty years, and now the Indiana Jones producer has finally found a partner to make this dream a reality.

Netflix has acquired global rights and will finance the completion and restoration of the legendary filmmaker Orson Welles’ last film, The Other Side of the Wind. Get the full details, after the jump.
