The Jetsons movie

A new big screen adaptation of The Jetsons has been in the works since before /Film even existed. Around the time the live-action adaptation of The Flintstones was released in the ’90s, there was chatter about giving the same treatment to The Jetsons. In the mid-to-late ’00s, Robert Rodriguez was attached to the project, but he seems to have fallen away in recent years in favor of a new animated adaptation of the classic cartoon instead.

The last we heard anything about The Jetsons as a film property was that an animated movie was in the works at Warner Bros. Animation Group with Matt Lieberman scripting the adaptation. Now the project is getting another kick in the space pants with Sausage Party co-director Conrad Vernon coming on to develop the new take on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

The Boss Baby teaser trailer

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named The Boss Baby, and a sequel was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Man, the Bible really saw this afternoon’s movie news coming, huh? Maybe I should have paid closer attention in church. Anyway, The Boss Baby 2 is in the works, just as the Book of Revelation foretold.

angry birds 2

The Angry Birds Movie was only a modest hit at the domestic box office last year, but its international haul seemingly pleased the accountants at Sony. The studio has announced a sequel for 2019, just in case you need more stories about flightless birds voiced by comedians being flung in the direction of green pigs who live in poorly designed towers.

nemo-and-friends-searider

This month, a new attraction opens at the Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort in California. Or rather, a new attraction built on the skeleton of an older attraction. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! utilizes the same building and ride engine as the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, albeit with a complete Marvel makeover. The results have been controversial amongst theme park fans, to the say the very least.

Meanwhile, across the world, another attraction makeover hasn’t received nearly as much press. The StormRider attraction at Tokyo DisneySea has become Nemo & Friends SeaRider. Utilizing the same space and ride system, this attraction takes riders under the ocean to interact with the characters from Finding Dory and Finding Nemo. Full ride video has arrived online, just in case you want to check it out and don’t think you’ll be heading to Tokyo anytime soon.

Inflatable Moe's Tavern

If you’ve ever lamented the fact that you can’t go to Moe’s Tavern unless you go to Universal Studios, now you can make your dreams come true, and you can do it from your own yard.

The company Inflatable Pub is known for creating, you guessed it, massive inflatable pubs. They’re basically big inflatable tents with interiors that look as close to a real pub as a giant inflatable structure. Their products look like a few various pub styles, from Irish to Texas, and they even have fake fireplaces inside them. But their latest inflatable pub comes straight from the fictional town of Springfield, from the animated series The Simpsons. It’s Moe’s Tavern.

Check out the inflatable Moe’s Tavern after the jump. Read More »

the emoji movie trailer

The Emoji Movie is a thing produced by human beings. Countless artists and animators toiled away to bring it into existence. It paid for medical bills and college tuitions. It kept a number of skilled people employed so they could pay their mortgages and put food on their table. Kids did not starve because The Emoji Movie exists. In that way, The Emoji Movie‘s mere existence cannot be written off entirely. Good job, The Emoji Movie.

But the new trailer for the actual movie? Yikes. This looks like exactly what we were dreading when the film was first announced.
