Kubo and the Two Strings Trailer

There’s a good chance that I will always be stunned by how incredibly gorgeous stop-motion animation looks from Laika. The studio is host to dozens of animators who are masters of their craft, and when you see the new footage from the final Kubo and the Two Strings trailer, you’ll certainly agree.

The fantasy adventure follows a young boy named Kubo (Art Parkinson) who gets caught up in the kind of fantasy adventures with which he usually entertains his village. With the help of a monkey (Charlize Theron) and a trusty, loyal warrior named Beetle (Matthew McConaughey), Kubo must face gods and monsters in order to learn the true history of his family and become a hero in the process.

Real Pizza Planet Truck

There are some very passionate pop culture fans out there in the world. Some of them like to show their love by amassing collectibles, others like to dress up as their favorite characters. But it takes a real dedicated crew to build a homemade version of an iconic cinematic vehicle. Plenty of people have created their own Back to the Future time machines or A-Team vans, but a group of friends decided they wanted to bring a vehicle from the world of Pixar Animation into the real world.

Some very talented people decided to create a working replica of the Pizza Planet Truck originally seen in Toy Story. Not only is their creation from 2011 impressive and as screen accurate as possible, but once they were done with it, they drove it to Pixar’s studios and impressed some of the very people who created the real Pizza Planet truck.

Batman The Killing Joke

Following last month’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a very different Dark Knight takes on a very different nemesis in this year’s other Batman movie, Batman: The Killing Joke. This one, as the title suggests, is an adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland‘s famous comic book storyline, and Warner Bros. / DC has gone to great lengths to make sure it’s the movie fans want. Not only does the animated direct-to-video feature reunite voice actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill, it boasts an R rating, lest you worry it’ll smooth over the darker, uglier aspects of the source material.
