Mark Hamill - Star Wars The Last Jedi Disagreement

Towards the end of last month, a slew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi details came from Vanity Fair’s big cover story, but there was one new piece of information that caught fans off guard.

During an interview, Mark Hamill brought up a conversation he had with director Rian Johnson:

“I at one point had to say to Rian, ‘I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character. Now, having said that, I have gotten it off my chest, and my job now is to take what you’ve created and do my best to realize your vision.'”

Some fans took that in a negative way, but Hamill has taken the time to clarify that’s not how he feels about the situation anymore. Find out what else Mark Hamill had to say about his The Last Jedi disagreement below. Read More »

Cars 3 - Final Image

The ending of Cars 3 makes the movie, but as with all Pixar films, it was a work in progress for many years. Last week, I spoke with director Brian Fee about how the Cars 3 ending evolved over the development and production of the film.

Spider-Man Homecoming Credits Scene

It’s a foregone conclusion that a Marvel Studios movie is going to have some kind of scene that happens during or after the credits. Sometimes it’s even both, as in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, and this summer’s sequel to the cosmic Marvel movie even upped the ante by having a record five scenes scattered throughout the credits. Now it appears Marvel’s summer collaboration with Sony Pictures will follow suit.

At Sydney’s Supanova Comic-Con, director Jon Watts appeared via Skype and said there would be at least one Spider-Man: Homecoming credits scene “worth sticking around for,” but it seems like there may be more than one for audiences to see. Find out more below. Read More »

Sphero Spider-Man

Ever since Sphero made a splash with the interactive BB-8 droid toy that arrived before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, they’ve become a household name in cool, albeit pricey, electronic toys. Just recently they unveiled their interactive Lightning McQueen remote controlled car, and now they have a Spider-Man: Homecoming inspired gizmo too.

The Sphero Spider-Man toy is an interactive little gadget that talks to you and reacts to your voice commands. You can ask Spidey to tell you a joke, ask trivia questions, give you the time, guard your room, wake you up and more. Beyond those basic capabilities, Spidey will also go on missions, play games, tell stories and do other things that will change how he interacts with you as time goes on.

Spider-Man Spin-Off Marvel Universe - Spider-Man Homecoming

Following the unprecedented collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios to share Spider-Man, allowing the webslinger to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe with The Avengers, fans were surprised that there were spin-offs being developed featuring ancillary characters like Venom and a team-up movie featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat, especially when Kevin Feige confirmed they wouldn’t be tied to the MCU.

The development of these Spider-Man spin-offs seem counter-intuitive considering how successful Spider-Man: Homecoming looks to be this summer, currently tracking between $90 million and $108 million for an opening weekend. However, according to producer Amy Pascal, just because these movies featuring Spider-Man characters aren’t connected to the MCU doesn’t mean Tom Holland can’t pop up in them as the friendly neighborhood wallcrawler.

Spider-Man Homecoming Score

This year we’re getting three new scores from composer Michael Giacchino. You can hear one of them in theaters this weekend with the arrival of Colin Trevorrow’s The Book of Henry, which isn’t getting very good reviews. But the next one will arrive in theaters early next month.

Spider-Man: Homecoming features a score from Michael Giacchino, complete with all of his punny track titles on the soundtrack. For those interested, the full tracklist has been released, and it doesn’t include any major spoilers for those worried about that kind of thing. Furthermore, the full Spider-Man: Homecoming suite is available for your listening pleasure, giving us a preview of some of the orchestral themes we’ll hear throughout the film.

Lightning McQueen 30 for 30 video

The time has come for Lightning McQueen to prove whether he still has some race left in him in Pixar Animation’s sequel, Cars 3. The next chapter in the racer’s story sees his career on the verge of ending as Jackson Storm and a whole crew of high-tech race cars enter the fray, leaving him as the resident old man on the track.

Now ESPN has chronicled Lightning McQueen’s career in a documentary short called 95: The Untold Story of Lightning McQueen, inspired by their acclaimed 30 for 30 series.

cars 3

Cars 3 isn’t your typical children’s animated movie. Not that we expect the typical from Pixar, but the Cars franchise has been more geared (pun intended) towards younger audiences. At the core of the film is Owen Wilson‘s character Lightning McQueen, who is faced with the possible end of his career. The new generation of racers are faster and smarter, and while McQueen attempts to make a comeback, he must come to terms with, well, being old. These are some heavy topics for a G-rated animated movie.

Speaking with director Brian Fee and producer Kevin Reher, I learned that the idea came from conversations with racing star Jeff Gordon and a very emotional moment director Fee had with his daughters.

cars 3 easter eggs

There are many things we love about Pixar movies. We love their emotional beats, their characters, the worlds they create, and the way they make us reevaluate our world and lives.

But I also love searching for those Easter eggs. When talking with director Brian Fee about the studio’s latest film, I was able to get him to reveal some of the more obscure Cars 3 easter eggs you should look out for.

Cars 3

The Cars movies have been the redheaded stepchildren of the Pixar filmography for just over a decade. While the films are a merchandising cash cow, the 2006 original and 2011 sequel are among Pixar’s weakest creative efforts, the latter being their outright worst. A more positive spin on Cars 3 might suggest that the studio has something to prove, that they wanted this movie to exist for reasons aside from selling toys. The good news is that Cars 3 is mercifully a step up from Cars 2; the less surprising news is that it’s not quite as good as the original.
