Whether or not you’re in Anaheim next weekend for Star Wars Celebration, you’d better be on alert. We know that at 10 a.m. April 16, J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy will take the stage at the event to premiere the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That event will be simulcast in various rooms around that convention and, possibly, in cinemas all over the world. (That last part is still only a rumor, however.)
Word now has it that the duo will also debut the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster at the event.
Below, we’ll discuss what this means for people who are attending Celebration and those who aren’t. Read More »

Pixar’s new film Inside Out is nothing quite like any film the studio has made before. It tells a story that takes place in dual worlds. One world looks a lot like our own; there, a young girl named Riley finds her world turned upside down when her family moves cross-country just as she hits a period of new emotional growth. The other world is inside Riley’s head, where five primary emotions guide her newly rocky life. One is fairly realistic; the other very cartoonish. The contrast between the two gives the movie an unusual feel, especially as the events in each “world” become more difficult for the characters.
Last week I flew up to San Francisco then made the trip across the bay to Emeryville, and Pixar’s campus. There I saw the first hour of Inside Out, and sat in on a number of short interview sessions with heads of several departments that contributed to the film, culminating with a talk with director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera. All together they gave a fairly complete portrait of the Inside Out behind the scenes process. We’ll feature our talk with Docter and Rivera soon, but first let’s look at the technical departments at Pixar. Here are the 40 things we learned during our Inside Out behind the scenes visit.

The curtain has almost been fully pulled back from Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. After the full trailer showed some impressive visuals, an international trailer dropped some major details, including the film’s connection to the Walt Disney theme parks. At this point, most of us have more than enough information on the family sci-fi fantasy.
If you need more though, Disney is happy to oblige. New press notes on the film have a ton of interesting tidbits on the main characters, the locations, themes and the behind the scenes inspirations for the film. Read 10 new Tomorrowland movie details below. Read More »
This is probably the biggest nightmare for Star Wars fans after it was first announced Disney was buying Star Wars. Would the Mouse House turn the beloved science fiction fantasy epic into a generic neutered animated franchise for children? So far it doesn’t appear to be in the plans. Sure, they have the Star Wars Rebels animated series on Disney XD, but thats actually good despite the rather low budget animation. But Big Bee Studio imagined what would happen if the people who made Cars & Planes got their hands on Star Wars. The result is a fake trailer for a new movie titled Disney Pixar’s X-Wings. And while this is horrifying, the Disney toy department obviously had similar ideas which thankfully will remain toys for now. After the jump you can watch the Disney Pixar X-Wings movie trailer.

Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in the UK and other countries in just a couple weeks, and hits the US on May 1. The first screenings take place very soon, after which we’ll probably start to hear far too much about the film’s secrets. But for now, there are brief blasts of new footage thanks to things like the new behind the scenes featurette, and these two new Age of Ultron TV spots. The best line in either of these spots comes from Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye, as he raises an issue that we’ve probably all thought about as the team prepares to battle the robot Ultron, and his army of other robots.
