The Muppets pitch video

In case you hadn’t heard, The Muppets are coming back to television this fall with a brand new series on ABC. Taking a cue from shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation, the series will be a mockumentary style show following the Muppets as they create a new series for ABC. Yeah, it’s pretty meta, just like all the rest of their productions.

The Muppets recently put on a hilarious panel at Comic-Con in San Diego, complete with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and more. (You can watch it all right here.) One thing that can’t be seen in the panel video is the 10-minute pitch video that was shown to ABC in order to land the series deal. But thankfully, the television studio has released the pitch video for us all to see, and it’s fantastic.

new Good Dinosaur trailer

The Good Dinosaur is the second Pixar film for 2015, and this new Good Dinosaur trailer shows off the incredible photo-realistic world built for the film as well as the more cartoonish characters that inhabit it.

The film is about an orphaned dinosaur who befriends a young human boy, and reportedly features relatively little dialogue as the two communicate through action and expression rather than words. This trailer follows suit, using music and action to communicate the film’s nature. There’s just one word spoken in this trailer, but you’ll understand the story just the same. Read More »

why Ava DuVernay turned down Black Panther

There were plenty of people who were excited when reports surfaced of Selma director Ava DuVernay being in the running for either Captain Marvel or Black Panther. But sadly, even after Kevin Feige confirmed talks with the filmmaker, she ended up turning down the job to direct Chadwick Boseman as the latter superhero from Wakanda.

Rumors had swirled about Marvel overbearing with their directors in order to keep their cinematic universe on the track that they have planned, which also seemed to be one potential reason Edgar Wright left Ant-Man. Now DuVernay has seemingly confirmed those rumors, saying that too much compromise made her think she wouldn’t be able to make the film she wanted to make.

Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow hospital visit

The internet has been rather charmed in the past by the charitable activities of Marvel Studios’ stars Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, stopping by a couple children’s hospitals as Star-Lord and Captain America respectively. But now another iconic Disney actor has been captured using his stardom to bring joy to some kids who need it the most.

Johnny Depp took a break from filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales to stop by Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia in full wardrobe as Captain Jack Sparrow. And thankfully, an Australian children’s show was there to film some of the adorable antics of the perpetually drunk pirate interacting with the kids.

The Force Awakens LEGO sets

Just last week, some leaked photos of LEGO sets from Star Wars: The Force Awakens revealed a couple new characters that we previously didn’t know about.
