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 »

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 »

Is it possible that even though millions upon millions of eyeballs watched Joss Whedon‘s massive superhero blockbuster, The Avengers, every one of them missed a clue to its sequels? Spoilers follow for The Avengers but, at the end of the film, with Manhattan completely destroyed, we see Tony Stark and Pepper Potts jokingly working on a building. Then, the final shot of the movie reveals that all the letters of “STARK” fell off Stark Tower save for one: the A. A for Avengers.
If you look at a screen grab from the film, it seems like that’s exactly what Tony Stark is building at the end of The Avengers. Not another Stark Tower, but the Avengers Tower. Check it out below. Read More »
