The hype and buzz around Star Wars: The Force Awakens is starting to die down along with the film’s box office haul (it lost to The Revenant and Ride Along 2 last weekend), but that doesn’t mean there isn’t cool stuff to hear about the sci-fi blockbuster. In fact, just one day after the film hit theaters back in December, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences had a conversation with some of the key filmmakers on the film, including director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, writer Lawrence Kasdan, star Harrison Ford and more. That conversation is finally available to watch online. Read More »

UPDATE: An observant reader actually found the Pizza Planet truck exactly in the same place it was found before, but it’s actually much bigger and cooler than we thought. Our original story follows with an update at the end with the new image.
Just yesterday we highlighted a still from The Good Dinosaur featuring a famous Pixar Animation Easter egg that you may never have noticed or even thought was possible to easily include in the movie that takes place during prehistoric times. It was the inclusion of A113, the room that many Pixar filmmakers worked in while at Cal Arts. And now one more seemingly impossible Easter egg may have been unveiled thanks to a keen-eyed viewer: the Pizza Planet truck. Read More »
Fans have been patiently waiting for a first look at the new Spider-Man who will be debuting in Captain America: Civil War. Even though we know sequences were shot with Spider-Man on the set of the sequel, no set photos were snagged, and there have been no leaks regarding the webcrawler’s costume. So what’s the holdup?
Well, besides wanting to keep some surprises for fans in the movie, Anthony & Joe Russo recently explained at a Q&A that a big part of the reason we haven’t seen Spidey yet is because of all the deals that needed to be made, and apparently still need to be made, between Disney/Marvel and Sony to share the character.

Stan Lee is one of popular culture’s more fascinating icons, a man whose importance to various artistic mediums cannot be understated. In his wake lies a complex legacy, where his undeniably vital contributions continuously do battle with those who were left wounded by him (just ask Jack Kirby’s estate). Without Lee, the Marvel comic book universe as we know it would not exist. Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, and countless other characters wouldn’t exist. He is a genius and an icon of the 20th century who will be discussed long after he’s shuffled off his mortal coil.
However, Stan Lee also likes to talk and Stan Lee loves to talk about things that he has literally no involvement in whatsoever. After all, he hasn’t been actively involved in the inner workings of Marvel in decades. He’s more of a mascot now, a figurehead, Marvel’s own Mickey Mouse. Thankfully, Lee’s chatter tends to be entertaining, especially when he says crazy things about Disney merging the Avengers and Star Wars franchises to create some kind of uber-blockbuster.

Last night, the Critics Choice Awards were televised live for the first time ever. While the event wasn’t quite as star-studded as the Golden Globes or the Oscars, the festivities were hosted by comedian and Cloverfield star T.J. Miller with some of his trademark wackiness, everyone seemed to be having a good time, and Mad Max: Fury Road took home a bunch of awards. But one special award was handed out to Industrial Light & Magic, and a special guest from Star Wars: The Force Awakens was on hand to help out.
The adorable BB-8 helped ILM’s chief creative officer John Knoll accept the Genius Award for everyone who has helped bring some of the most unbelievable creatures, settings and sights to life on the big screen. Check out the BB-8 Critics Choice Awards appearance after the jump! Read More »

If you’re a fan of Pixar Animation, you know that the animators and filmmakers love including little easter eggs for fans to find. Whether it’s characters appearing in each other’s movies, the Pizza Planet truck or the bouncy ball with the red star, there’s always goodies to find in a Pixar movie. However, it was quite the challenge to include many of them among The Good Dinosaur easter eggs due to the film’s prehistoric setting with a lack of technology and encompassing nature. But we now know how Pixar fit in one of their most famous easter eggs into the film. Read More »
If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, then you know that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) can have a bit of a temper when things don’t go his way. There’s already an Emo Kylo Ren account on Twitter and an animated short featuring the First Order commander freaking out during everyday situations. Now Kylo Ren wants to see what the employees at Starkiller Base really think of his management skills and attitude by disguising himself as a radar technician named Matt on the CBS reality series Undercover Boss in a new sketch from Saturday Night Live, which was hosted by Driver himself last night.
