With all the hype surrounding the new Harry Potter theme park expansion at Universal Studios Orlando, it would have been odd not to include an easter egg or two. Turns out, one of those park teases is from the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. USA Today posted images from the theme park (you can see our extensive coverage here) and in one of them, a few of the creatures who are likely to appear in the film are on display. Check out the image below, and read about where the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie – written by J.K. Rowling herself – will shoot. Read More »

Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grossed an estimated $92 million in its opening weekend, which was actually a huge win for 20th Century Fox. Why? Because Marvel fans who sat through the Spider-Man credits were greeted with a teaser scene for Fox’s upcoming mutant sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past. You can read more about how that all went down here. Now, you can watch the scene without sitting through the credits. Check out the the Amazing Spider Man 2 post credits X-Men scene below.

UPDATE: The initial release wasn’t clear, it has nothing to do with the X-Men trailer. Story has been updated.
UPDATE 2: The images have been revealed.
When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 screened for press in Los Angeles last week, there was no scene at the end of the credits. Even if there was, though, we wouldn’t have unlocked the true secret because we didn’t know the key. Now you do.
Sony tells us that when the film opens in U.S. theaters Thursday night, fans will be able to Shazam the credit sequence featuring the song “It’s on Again” by Alicia Keys featuring Kendrick Lamar to “unlock a look into the sinister future.” Read More »
One of the biggest easter eggs in Captain America: The Winter Soldier has to do with Pulp Fiction. Yes, the 1994 Quentin Tarantino masterpiece. Towards the end of the film there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference to the film that either gets huge laughs from an audience, or total silence if they don’t have time to figure it out.
Where exactly this happens is a bit of a spoiler so, below, we’ll describe it and let directors Anthony and Joe Russo tell you how this Pulp Fiction Captain America reference came to be. Read More »

When Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, be on the look out for Tony Stark’s Avengers Tower. As a hidden Easter Egg.
At the end of The Avengers, the Stark Tower was decimated, leaving only the “A” as a tease of what’s to come. There was also a brief scene where Stark is clearly seen working on an Avengers Tower. In Iron Man 3, Stark never visits New York as he’s plenty busy in California, Tennessee and Florida but that doesn’t mean the tower hasn’t been under construction. Speaking to /Film, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told us the completed tower makes a brief cameo in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read More »

On first watch, this latest clip from Drew Pearce‘s Marvel One Shot: All Hail The King, is just a funny gimmick. It shows how Trevor Slattery (Ben Kingsley) is completely adored in prison. But the real stuff is all in the details. First of all, this is Seagate Prison, which is the prison in which Luke Cage is confined, and from which he eventually breaks out. Second of all, another prisoner has a mysterious tattoo that ties into another Iron Man storyline. Does this one minute clip of the short, which will be out in its entirety next Tuesday on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray, set up something huge? Check it out below. Read More »
In the Chris Columbus-directed modern Christmas classic Home Alone, why didn’t the McCallister family notice Kevin’s absence when they presented his airline ticket at the boarding gate? The answer to this question is hidden in the movie, and even though you’ve probably seen the movie a dozen times over the years, you might never noticed it. Find out after the jump.

Disney’s latest family musical, Frozen, is in theaters now and quickly gaining a sterling reputation. Some are comparing it to the classic musicals of the 1990s such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast or The Lion King. Others say it’s better than any film Pixar has released in years. I say it’s probably somewhere in the middle, a delightful Disney animated film that has plenty to remember, but isn’t without an issue or two. [You can watch what is arguably the film’s best moment here.]
As is the case with most Disney movies, which take so long to make, animators love to populate some of the busier frames with Easter Eggs. In Frozen, there are at least three biggies. We’ve seen one that relates back to Tangled, but Wreck-It Ralph, and even an appearance of Mickey Mouse himself are in there, too. Check them out below. Read More »
The first trailer for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been out for a few hours now which, in Internet time, means it’s old news. (If you haven’t seen it, click here.) By now, fans have tried to dissect the secrets it holds, and there are plenty. We clearly see Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) as the Green Goblin. We clearly see Peter has to deal with the actions of his deceased father (Campbell Scott). We see Peter fighting Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and we see why they cut out Mary Jane. There’s a lot of story here. So much, in fact, the trailer makes it look like Green Goblin and Rhino are the primary villains and Electro (Jamie Foxx) is second tier. Which is simply not the case.
Despite all that, the biggest surprise in the trailer comes at the 1:16 mark. It’s a quick shot that, one site reports, is the post-credits tease of the Sinister Six. Did you catch it? Check it out below. Read More »
