Nicolas Cage is undoubtedly one of the most unique talents working in Hollywood today. Sadly, he’s been spending his time making some pretty terrible movies as of late. At the very least those movies feature Nicolas Cage bringing his eccentric acting style to the screen, and sometimes that’s entertaining enough.
The folks at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX have been paying tribute to Nicolas Cage for a few years now with their C4GED marathon celebrating the actor’s birth month with a batch of his movies on the big screen. Each year they invite Nicolas Cage so they can sing “Happy Birthday” to him, but he never showed up. But that changed this year at C4GED 4-EVER, the fourth and final iteration of the event.

Last year, Disney announced that Disney California Adventure’s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction was being shut down and transformed into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!, a decision that managed to make perfect financial sense while also irritating Disneyland fans who rightfully noted how out-of-place the ride would be in that park. Now that construction is well under way, everyone involved seems to be out to change the narrative surrounding this controversial new attraction, offering an inside look at what we can expect.

Most likely, you didn’t get a chance to check out the Ghostbusters VR experience that was available at Madam Tussauds in Times Square last summer. But if you happen to be in Washington DC sometime soon (maybe because you’re protesting the inauguration of a certain someone), then you’ll get another opportunity to check out an immersive Ghostbusters experience.
Escape Rooms are all the rage right now. If you haven’t heard of this fun phenomenon, it’s basically a puzzle that you’re a part of, almost like a game of Clue. You’re stuck in a room, and you have to solve puzzles with the various items that are in the room in order to escape. One company in Washington DC has made their experience even more unique by tying their Escape Rooms into movies, and one of them is a Ghostbusters Escape Room. Get a sneak preview after the jump.

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 »

It’s Wayne’s World! Wayne’s World! Party time! Excellent!
This might be hard to believe, but the Saturday Night Live movie Wayne’s World will officially be 25 years old next month. The comedy hit theaters on February 14, 1992, and Paramount Pictures is preparing to celebrating this milestone anniversary with a theatrical re-release of the meta 90s comedy starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey.

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.

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 »
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.
