Roast Woody Harrelson's Live Movie

Before we see Woody Harrelson take Caesar and the rest of his super-intelligent simian army in War for the Planet of the Apes this summer, he’s taking on an equally daunting endeavor: shooting the world’s first live movie.

Lost in London is an ambitious project that will have Woody Harrelson directing and starring in a movie that will be live-streamed into theaters as it’s shot on-location in London this week on January 19th. If you think that sounds like a crazy idea, don’t worry, because all of Woody Harrelson’s famous friends don’t believe he can pull it off.

Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Liam Hemsworth, Ted Danson, Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and more all roast Woody Harrelson, mocking his cinematic experiment. Watch all of these people and more roast Woody Harrelson’s live movie. Read More »

disneyland

We are still probably a couple of years out from Star Wars Land‘s grand opening, and Disneyland Park is still packed despite a big chunk of the park being closed for the renovations. I expect we’ll be seeing a bunch of ticket and annual pass price increases over the next couple years, but a surprising move comes today as Disney announces that they will be introducing a new service that will allow guests to book Fastpasses on their mobile phones for an upcharge fee.

Ghost in the Shell Anime In Theaters

In about two and a half months, audiences will have a chance to see the live-action adaptation of the iconic anime Ghost in the Shell. The movie has been at the center of some controversy since it has placed Scarlett Johansson in the lead role as a cyborg character who was Japanese in the original manga, adding to the ongoing list of whitewashing that many have grown tired of in recent years. But for all those fans upset by the new Ghost in the Shell, there is at least one bright spot.

Lionsgate and Funimation have announced that the original Ghost in the Shell will be returning to theaters in the United States for just two nights. Find out when and where you can see the Ghost in the Shell anime in theaters again below. Read More »

Main Street Electrical Parade Commercial warehouse

The Main Street Electrical Parade is my favorite of all the Disneyland parades. Maybe it’s the retro synthesized soundtrack that accompanies the nighttime floats, or maybe it’s the fact I first saw the parade as a young boy and fell in love with it. Even though Disney’s newer versions of the nighttime show like Paint The Night are technologically better in every way, it was unable to recapture the charm of this 1972 classic.

The parade has been at Disney World’s the Magic Kingdom for the last six and a half years, and on January 20th, 2017 the parade will return to Disneyland’s Main Street for a limited time five-month run marking the 45th anniversary of the parade. And Disney has begun marketing the return with an impressive television commercial. Watch the Main Street Electrical Parade commercial now after the jump.

Wizarding World of Harry Potter Nighttime Show

Taking a page out of Disney’s theme park playbook, it sounds like Universal Studios is looking to beef up the attractions at The Wziarding World of Harry Potter.

A new report indicates that Universal is developing a nighttime show that will take place within The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Much like the nighttime spectacular shows at Disney theme parks, they will be using projection mapping to project a visual spectacular on the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry castle.
