Last month a rumor began to circulate that Disney was considering re-theming Disney California Adventure’s The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride into a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction. When the rumor hit, even though it was from a source that had been right many times in the past, I commented on Twitter that I just didn’t buy it. But sadly it seems like there may be truth to this rumor after all. I have since spoken to two separate sources who have corroborated the rumor, and a reliable Disney rumor site is now reporting it’s true. Find out the details on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride after the jump.

We’ve seen Scarlett Johansson do everything from arthouse sci-fi to indie rom-com to big-budget action over the past few years, but her latest new project, Rock That Body, takes her into still new territory: the R-rated comedy. Luckily, she’ll have some experienced comedy vets on hand to help her out. Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), and Ilana Glazer (Broad City) have just joined Johansson and Zoë Kravitz in Rock That Body, which comes from Broad City writers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. Downs (who also plays Trey on Broad City) will co-star, and Aniello will direct. Read More »

Last year, Marvel Studios tested the mettle of comic book movie fans with “The Ultimate Marvel Marathon,” a 28-hour marathon consisting of 11 movies, climaxing with the brand new Avengers: Age of Ultron. I didn’t attend this event, but I know people who did. They have war stories. Their posteriors (and their sanity) never returned to full working order.
Marvel isn’t doing anything as extreme as that this year, but they are still offering fans the chance to numb their butts in the name of superhero fandom. They have just announced the “Ultimate Captain America Marathon,” which will screen in select theaters this Thursday and will, of course, conclude with a screening of Captain America: Civil War.

Thankfully, the trailers and TV spots for Captain America: Civil War haven’t highlighted too much from the film’s grandest and most intricate set piece. The airport fight sequence is stuffed to the brim with characters and conflicts — but it somehow never manages to feel overstuffed. What could’ve been total superhero chaos is instead a gracefully shot, character and plot-driven showdown.
Directors Joe & Anthony Russo have said the “splash panel” sequence was by far the toughest scene to pull off. Below, learn how screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the Russo brothers, and Marvel’s Kevin Feige went about constructing the Captain America: Civil War airport set piece.

Tom Hanks stars in a movie currently in theaters, but you might not be able to tell judging by the absence of advertising, much less critical buzz, for A Hologram for the King. Tom Tykwer‘s gentle (and often lovely) adaptation of Dave Egger‘s novel of the same name was recently released into a few hundred theaters, and it was met with somewhat mixed reviews and an underwhelming opening weekend at the box office, even by its own modest standards.
How exactly does a movie that stars Tom Hanks manage to fly so far under the radar for the general public? Is the film simply not commercial enough? Maybe, but whatever the case, it’s still a little disheartening to see a fine drama with a name like Hanks attached to it fail to reach a wide audience.

Arriving about six years too late for a successful cross promotion with the sequel TRON Legacy, the automobile manufacturer Chevrolet just unveiled a new version of their signature Cruze sedan. However, this version of the car is inspired by the aesthetics of the world of TRON.
The Chevy TRON car was unveiled at the Beijing auto show last week. While you might be thinking that this car is going to look awesome when you feast your eyes upon it after the jump, allow me to lower your expectations, because this car is pretty lame. Read More »
Its not a new phenomenon, a lot of movie trailers feature shots from movies that don’t end up on the big screen. This usually takes the form of scenes or moments that hit the cutting room floor in the time between the early marketing and release date. And with big budget visual effects films, its not uncommon to see many different iterations of a computer rendering that evolves into a much better looking effect by the time it hits multiplexes.
And we’ve already talked a bunch about the deleted scenes that were glimpsed in the marketing for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but didn’t make it to the theatrical release. But now that the movie is on Blu-ray and VOD fans are noticing some of the smaller details that didn’t make the theatrical cut of the film, the most recent of which is a reference to George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels and specifically Anakin Skywalker. Hit the jump to see the deleted Anakin Skywalker Force Awakens reference.
