If you’ve been paying attention to movie news over the past year, then you’re probably aware that Disney has been digging around in their vault for inspiration by giving some of their animated classics the live-action treatment with revisionist takes on the same story, or spin-offs following other characters from the movie.
Just this year alone we’ve gotten word of Tim Burton directing Dumbo, Alex Ross Perry writing Winnie the Pooh, and Reese Witherspoon starring in a Tinkerbell movie, not to mention live-action takes on Mulan, Pinocchio, Prince Charming and now an Aladdin prequel called Genies.
It’s a lot to keep track of, but thankfully, a helpful new chart has surfaced online to help Disney fans keep track of all the sequels, spin-offs and remakes from the past and the future, and there’s even some interesting information to be gleaned from the chart as well. Check out the Disney sequel spin-off chart after the jump! Read More »

The hype around Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been more exciting than usual over the past week and a half, thanks to the Comic-Con panel that revealed an awesome new behind the scenes sizzle reel, not to mention that awesome surprise concert for the fan who were in Hall H for the presentation.
However, the Comic-Con panel also brought news that we wouldn’t be getting a new trailer for The Force Awakens until the fall, likely around the same time all the merchandise starts hitting shelves on Force Friday. So in the meantime, we’ll have to take whatever Star Wars scraps we can get, and thankfully a new promo image has arrived courtesy of John Boyega‘s official Instagram account. It’s an image that features his character Finn and a familiar hero. See the new Force Awakens promo banner image after the jump! Read More »
It’s been years in the making, over a decade in truth, but Marvel’s Ant-Man is on the big screen this weekend. Kickstarted by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish in 2003 and ultimately directed by Peyton Reed with Paul Rudd starring, the film acts as the final chapter in Marvel’s “phase two” of universe building. In fact, the film is something like an intermission for the great forward push in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with connections to recent films, but also a structure and tone that is more akin to Iron Man than anything else.
Now that you’ve had a chance to see the film, we’d love to hear what you thought. Sound off on the highs and lows of Ant-Man in the comments below, where spoilers are encouraged. Read More »
Today is the day, Disneyland celebrates its 60th birthday. We’ve all seen video of Disneyland’s grand opening from July 17th 1965, but have you ever wondered what happened to the first children to enter the latest of Walt Disney‘s first theme park? The story is pretty interesting — they weren’t even supposed to be at the park’s opening and were given lifetime passes by Walt Disney himself. The image of the two kids being greeted by Walt Disney can still be seen on Disney California Adventure’s latest edition of their spectacular “World Of Color” water show. Hit the jump and find out.

Even if you’re a fan of Marvel Studios movies since they created their own cinematic universe that began with Iron Man in 2008, there’s still some pretty confusing elements that have surfaced throughout the first two phases of these interconnected comic book franchises, especially if you’re not a die hard Marvel fan.
Thankfully, YouTube user Garcatch has decided to put together an unhelpful, overly snarky, breakdown of the entire Marvel cinematic universe so far. If you’ve been watching the Marvel movies so far, you won’t find any new information here. But you will find a series of quips trying to describe the motion picture phenomenon in eight minutes.

Tinker Bell’s getting a spinoff, Cinderella’s prince is getting a spinoff, and now Aladdin‘s Genie is getting a spinoff, too. (Which we totally called, by the way.) Disney is developing Genies, a live-action comedy adventure that’ll reveal how the jolly blue giant wound up in that tiny little lamp.
And don’t worry, Aladdin isn’t getting left out in the cold here either. The tentative plan is for Genies to eventually lead into an Aladdin live-action movie. More details on the Aladdin Genie movie after the jump. Read More »
