Monopoly movie goonies

So far, the only board game movies to come out of Hollywood’s post-Transformers mania for Hasbro properties are 2012’s Battleship and last year’s Ouija. But we’ve got one more due out in the near future, an adaptation of Monopoly. Producer Randall Emmett reveals Monopoly will shoot this summer, which means we can probably expect it to see it in 2016 or so.

Whereas Battleship was a big-budget actioner and Ouija was a low-budget horror thriller, Monopoly will be going in a completely different approach. Emmett describes it as a Goonies-esque family adventure. More on the Monopoly movie Goonies comparison after the jump. Read More »

Avengers Statues Ultron header

These days, if you really love a movie, it’s pretty easy to relive it. Sure you can just watch the movie again, but in most cases someone, somewhere has made some piece of merchandise about it. In the case of the bigger movies – movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron – there’s a lot of merchandise. Really good, high end merchandise along with the kids stuff.

You’ve probably seen us feature some of the Hot Toys releases for the film, which hits theaters May 1, but another brand has revealed their beautiful work too. Dragon Models has debuted images of their 1/9th scale statues from Avengers: Age of Ultron and, in the photos, you get some of the best close-ups you’ve seen yet of the Hulkbuster, Ultron and Captain America’s new outfit. Check out the Avengers statues below. Read More »

James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy

As the holiday season continues, one property that’s sure to be at the top of many lists is Guardians of the Galaxy. The Marvel Studios movie remains the highest grossing domestic film of the year, spawning a whole new legion of fans for the previously obscure characters.

In the last few days, co-writer and director James Gunn has gotten some absolutely amazing Guardians of the Galaxy gifts. A few are from Marvel, others from friends, but it’s proof that several years of non-stop, incredibly hard work does beget some really cool gifts.

John Boyega Star Wars Force Awakens header

Toys are a necessary part of blockbuster filmmaking, but they’re also the bane of its existence. On seemingly every single major Hollywood film, it’s the toys that reveal our first look at something major. For Jurassic World it was the D-Rex; for Transformers 4 it was Grimlock; the list goes on and on. It took longer than usual but the same thing has begun to happen for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. An image has appeared online that shows Finn, Rey, BB-8, Chewbacca and a mystery character that may or may not be Kylo Ren. However, an additional piece of concept art was released that almost certainly is Ren. Find out more about The Force Awakens toy leak below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Baby Dancing Groot

It feels like every single week there’s a new story about Baby Groot. Whether it be a new toy version of the character, a piece of art, or discussion of the scene itself, everyone just wants more information about the hilarious ending to Guardians of the Galaxy. If you’ve been on the fence about which version of the character to buy, you’re in luck. Hot Toys has revealed their version of Baby Groot and it’s pretty easy to say this is a close to definitive as we have. Unfortunately, it’s only 1:4 scale (which is so disappointing. Not 1:1?) but comes with interchangeable heads and bendable arms so you can set him in whatever dancing pose you like. Check out the Hot Toys Baby Groot toy below. Read More »
