lego batman movie

What a long, strange trip it’s been for Batman on the big screen. There was the 1966 movie based on the TV show. Tim Burton’s 1989 hit, which lead us to the wild Joel Schumacher films. Christopher Nolan then took over and turned it into Oscar-bait and in a few years, not only will Batman fight Superman and join the Justice League, he’ll be the star of his own Lego movie.

That’s a whole lot of material to work with for writer Seth Grahame-Smith and director Chris McKay, who are making the Lego Batman Movie spinoff set for release in 2017. According to producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord, they will acknowledge it all. Read the quote below. Read More »

good dinosaur delay

A director swap, a 18 month delay, what exactly when went down behind the scenes of Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur. In an alternate world, we’d have already seen the movie by now, as it was originally scheduled for release Summer 2014. However, story problems forced the film to get delayed a year and a half, change directors, and change a lot of what was happening in the movie.

In a revealing story in the Los Angeles Times, new director Peter Sohn explains why the film was delayed and what he’s done to change it for the better. Read about the Good Dinosaur delay, changes, and see a new image, below. Read More »

Breaking Bad Frozen parody

November 2014 really seems a bit late to be parodying the biggest pop culture hits of 2013. We’ve already seen enough Frozen mash-ups to last us a lifetime, to say nothing of Breaking Bad parodies. But hey, great art takes time, and “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?” is worth the wait.

As the title suggests, the Breaking Bad Frozen parody reimagines “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” through a Breaking Bad lens. Anna’s wistful musical appeal to Elsa becomes a dangerous plea from Walt to Jesse. Watch “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?” after the jump. (Warning: Major Breaking Bad spoilers ahoy.) (Another warning: If you proceed, you will have the tune stuck in your head for the next 24 hours.) Read More »

Fantastic Mr. Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher is getting a lot of attention for its tone, its performances, and Steve Carell’s nose. But that title proved to be irresistable for one editor, and now we can show you something that was probably inevitable. Fantastic Mr. Foxcatcher is exactly what you think it might be: a mash-up of the trailers for Foxcatcher and Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Specifically, it uses the audio from the new film with the images of Anderson’s movie. Some parts work better than others, but the bits that do work are, well, fantastic. Read More »

Bureau of Otherworldly Operations delayed

DreamWorks Animation had it’s own Ghostbusters-style movie, B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations, set for summer 2015 release. But now the company is rethinking the release date. ”We regularly evaluate how to maximize [our films'] value, including determining the most opportune time to release a film,” said a DWA spokesperson, and it turns out that summer 2015 is not the opportune time for B.O.O. The film is now floating in the aether without a release date, like one of its own ghosts.  Read More »

INSIDE OUT

Most Pixar movies are emotional experiences, in that they inspire what the kids used to call “all the feels.” But their next film Inside Out is an emotional experience in a more literal sense, as it delves into the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.

Living within are five primary emotions that drive her: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), and Anger (Lewis Black). Get to know all of them as Pixar begins to release new Inside Out character posters. (We’ll update this post as more posters arrive.)  Read More »
