“I am Groot” might not seem like much of a line, but it’s a big deal coming from the character in Guardians of the Galaxy. Vin Diesel made the most of it in James Gunn’s film, and now another actor is going to play with those three words for the animated Guardians. Kevin Michael Richardson will voice the walking tree alien in the upcoming Disney XD animated series Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Update: Trevor Devall will voice Rocket Raccoon. Read More »

As much as we’re all looking forward to Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans are already looking beyond that film. Specifically, they’re looking towards May 6, 2016 and Captain America: Civil War. Directed by the Russo Brothers, the film will feature two of Marvel’s most popular superheroes, Captain America and Iron Man, going head to head. The conflict not only kicks off Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it might even set the stage for the return of Spider-Man.
Though the title says “Captain America,” the inclusion of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man is what makes Civil War so epic. He’s the biggest movie star in the world. And yet, in a new interview, Downey stresses that Civil War is “Steve’s story,” meaning Steve Rogers as played by Chris Evans. He also talks a bit about the conflict between the two characters. Read the Robert Downey Jr Civil War quotes below. Read More »
Few objects in recent history have been more visually impactful than Apple’s iPhone.

At Pixar, movies are in development for years before we even know they exist. Then, even when we do hear of their existence, they’re still multiple years away. So when news breaks about Toy Story 4 or The Incredibles 2, those films are still several years away and have been in development for much longer than that.
In 2012, it was revealed that Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich was working on “a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos.” Since then, we’ve heard dribs and drabs about the film but Pixar has yet to give it a title or a release date. That’s curious, but not uncommon, at Pixar. Now, we’ve heard a potentially very big piece of information about the movie.
Oscar-winner Randy Newman, who has been a mainstay at Pixar, said in a new interview that Unkrich’s new movie is a musical. Does he mean the Dia de los Muertos movie? Seems likely. Below, find out more about what might be the first Pixar musical. Read More »

So basically, the Frozen musical is in capable, familiar hands. Read more on the Frozen Broadway musical below. Read More »
