Why isn’t Spider-Man allowed to join The Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Why won’t we ever see “Mutants” in the Marvel movies? Why can’t the Fantastic Four meet the X-Men on the big screen? The answer to these questions is that the Marvel character movie rights are owned by different studios who are (so far) uninterested in working together. Artist Maurice Mitchell of The Geek Twins (found via LaughingSquid) has created “The Visual Guide to Marvel Character Movie Rights” Infographic which illustrates the current state of the Marvel movie universe, divided by which studios own the rights to which Marvel characters. Hit the jump to check it out.

How much do we really know about people who go to the movies? Apparently, not much. Sure there are a small group of people who read movie blogs, go at least once a week and feel an obligation to see as many movies as possible. But that’s a very, very small percentage and though we might think we know everything, a new study by Google proves we do not.
A new Google moviegoing infographic states that almost 70% of film goers don’t know what movie they’re going to see when they go to the theater. Often, they let the most convenient time make the decision. Others base the decision solely on the star. Also, 40% of people say a film’s trailer is the deciding factor in going to see a movie. Only 8% said it was a friend’s recommendation.
Check out a new infographic packed with facts about how people go to the movies below. Read More »

Even if you’re paying close attention, it can be very difficult to keep track of who’s who in Game of Thrones. There are a lot of characters, first of all. Some of them with very similar names. And then there’s the task of sorting out the various relationships between the characters. Who’s married to whom? Who’s that guy’s mom? Are those two siblings or lovers?
Well, fear not. A new Game of Thrones family tree lays out the interconnected lineages of nearly everyone we’ve met in Westeros. It’s a pretty daunting task considering we’ve met dozens in the show, and several dozens more in the A Song of Ice and Fire books. Hit the jump to see the Game of Thrones family tree.

/Film reader and artist Dogan Can Gundogdu created an infographic which visually explains the timeline of Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. While I’m not sure Interstellar needs a chart explaining the chronology of the story like Nolan’s earlier film Memento, that didn’t stop many artists from creating such infographics to explain the tired levels of Inception — which I still think is very easy to understand without additional aids. Gundogdu’s Interstellar Timeline is a well designed beautiful flowchart explaining how everything went down, taking into consideration Einstein’s theory of relativity and space-time distortion. Hit the jump now to check out Dogan Can Gundogdu’s Interstellar time-line for yourself.

Quentin Tarantino loves telling stories out of sequence. From his very first film, the director has written and edited his films with some pieces out of order, creating dramatic irony, shock value, heightened drama and more. He also makes the audience engage more with the film as we piece together the hows and whys of questions like when did Mr. Orange meet Mr. White, how does Vincent Vega know Mia Wallace, how did O-Ren gain power, etc. Viewing a Tarantino film multiple times then becomes essential, simply because once you know how things play out, you begin to see the layering he’s created throughout.
Designer Noah Daniel Smith knows this. He appreciates it. But he also appreciates how awesome it can look when you put the scenes in order. Two years after making a chronological timeline of Pulp Fiction, Smith has now put Kill Bill in chronological order for a new poster. Check out the full Kill Bill Timeline below. Read More »

Disney fan Aish has put together an infographic mapping most of the Disney animated movies in a chronological timeline based on the order of historical setting. The graphic sorts almost 50 films into 47 time periods. Not all of the Disney animation catalog is included, specifically the package films. Aish notes:
Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)
Check out the Disney Animated Movie Timeline in full, after the jump.

Meanwhile, the latter talent is celebrated in a “Liam Neeson Kill Map,” charting all the people he’s murdered onscreen over the years.

For some movie collectors, there’s nothing more sought-after than screen-used movie props. To own something that is literally a piece of a film you love is priceless. Or, as seen in a new infographic, so expensive as to be nearly priceless. A new image ranks “The 33 Most Valuable Movie Props of All Time.” However, I’d argue these are just the most expensive as there are probably props that, if available, would go for more. Still, $6.4 million for one prop? Wow. Plus how much did an original Delorean from Back to the Future or lightsaber from Star Wars sell for? Check out the full image of the most expensive movie props below. Read More »
