In the comics, mutants play in the same sandbox as all the other Marvel superheroes. So Deadpool regularly crosses paths with the likes of Spider-Man and Daredevil, and gets mixed up with Hydra and the Avengers. In the movies, though, it’s a whole other story. 20th Century Fox has the rights to the X-Men and all associated mutant characters, while Marvel Studios owns all the non-mutant superheroes. Their universes are completely separate entities.
But Deadpool’s never been one to care about what’s “right” or “appropriate” or “legal.” And he’s certainly not going to let some silly Hollywood deal stop him from bringing along a Marvel-owned buddy for the Deadpool movie. So writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick found a way to sneak in a certain Marvel-owned character without setting off alarms for Marvel’s lawyers. Find out who, and how, after the jump. 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 »
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 »

Before you freak out, the names in the headline is NOT A SPOILER. There is absolutely no way you would spot any of these fellows in the movie unless you had some idea of where to look. They are not surprise appearances, they are fun easter eggs that you wouldn’t know unless someone told you about them. Knowing where to find them can only enhance you’re viewing, not detract. That said, while the names are not spoilers, pointing out where they appear requires me to spoil plot points, so don’t read this post unless you’ve seen the movie.
Composer Michael Giacchino, James Bond series star Daniel Craig, and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich all appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in cameo roles. Did you see them in the film? Find out about the Force Awakens cameos now after the jump.
Again Warning: Spoilers from the movie are after the jump.

Last weekend, Spectre took the top spot at the box office despite the film being considerably less acclaimed than its predecessor Skyfall. There are a myriad of complaints ranging from the length of the film to the unevenness of the story, but one of the more divisive elements is the use of some of the more old-school James Bond tropes. Whether it’s Monica Bellucci as a grieving widow suddenly turned on by 007, the cheeky one-liners, or the contrived climax, there’s plenty about Spectre that feels like it’s straight out of the 1960s and 1970s.
But beyond the old-school style of the film, there are also plenty of simple Spectre Easter eggs that merely reference earlier James Bond films without getting in your face about it. See if you caught all the Easter eggs after the jump, but beware of spoilers. Read More »
