Cool Stuff: U-Command Wall-E Remote Control Toy

U Command Wall-E Remote Control

More than almost any Disney character in recent memory, everyone wants a Wall-E. He’s cute, he’s got personality, he’s helpful and he cleans up after you. What could be better than that?

Unfortunately, we’ll never own an actual Wall-E because they don’t exist. He’s a figment of the imagination of director Andrew Stanton and hundreds of other talented people at Pixar. There are some cool Wall-E toys though, and fans have even taken it upon themselves to build ultra-realistic versions of the robot.

Disney has now done something right in the middle, releasing a “U-Command” Wall-E, which is remote controlled by an infrared waves. It has all kinds of articulations in the hands, face, voice controls and more. Check out the U-Command Wall-E Remote Control video below. Read More »

Groot

Each of the Guardians of the Galaxy were lovable in their own special way, but if we’re being honest the real heart of the team was Groot. The taciturn tree-creature was equal parts badass and sweet, and his adorable dance moves made him the must-have toy of the season. Too bad Disney’s been dragging its feet on actually putting out said toy.

The good news is that the company is getting closer, as Dragon Models announced today that it will release a 7″ Groot toy. This one looks a lot more like the Groot of the film than that earlier Funko bobblehead did. The bad news is that it’s still not really the Groot toy we want. Hit the jump for details on the new Groot toy. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet. Why haven’t you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet?)

Quentin Tarantino New Beverly

UPDATE: Tickets are now on sale for the Pulp Fiction/Professional double feature. 

Late summer left Los Angeles repertory fans scratching their heads as the long-running New Beverly Cinema abruptly closed for the month of September with the promise of renovations and new programming to come starting in October. As it turns out, Quentin Tarantino, who owns the theater building and has long provided financial backing to the New Bev, decided to take over programming the theater, ditching a recently-installed digital projector and committing to film-only projection. This week, the theater reopens and the first New Beverly programming under Tarantino’s stewardship has been announced.

Pixar theory

The films of Pixar seem as if they are primarily separate stories. (With the exception of the obvious relationship between sequels.) One theory, however, posits an elaborate timeline in which the advanced technology seen in Wall-E is developed over the course of hundreds of years, with a starting point seen in Up and the Toy Story films, and which explains the stars of Cars and the ever-evolving intelligence of animals. And Boo, the young heroine of Monsters Inc., has a surprising role in the whole cycle. Watch the Pixar Theory video below. Read More »

Frozen (4)

At this point, mocking sexy adult costumes is just as much a Halloween tradition as trick-or-treating or petty vandalism. But even by the usual ridiculous standards, these Frozen-inspired outfits take the cake. See the sexy Frozen costumes — including tarted-up versions of Elsa, Anna, and yes, even Olaf — after the jump.

Clerks 3 news

Like almost all Kevin Smith films, Tusk has been incredibly polarizing. I found myself in the middle of the road, seeing great promise in a film with some major problems. Some loved the audaciousness of Smith’s horrific tale, while others just hated everything about it. Smith himself is very proud of Tusk, calling it the closest thing he’s ever done to what he imagined he’d be making as a filmmaker.

The box office tended to agree with the haters. Over its opening weekend, Tusk only grossed on $1.4 million in over 600 theaters, pretty much guaranteeing a certain cult status.

The legacy of Tusk is already paying dividends, however. The project lead to a friendship between Smith and Johnny Depp, and spinning Tusk off into Yoga Hosers.  Plus, in a new podcast, the director also revealed Tusk gave financiers confidence to give him money for Clerks III. Read More »
