LEGO star wars force awakens prequel short films

Back in February, Disney announced a new series of Star Wars animated short films titled LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises a prequel to Episode VII featuring characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The first short in the series, titled Poe to the Rescue premiered on DisneyXD, and was later put online for everyone to enjoy. Disney has now released three more LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises shorts, titled The Trouble with Rathtars, Hunting for Han and Rey Strikes Back. All three shorts are a fun watch and well worth your time. I wish Disney would make an actual animated series out of these and not just shorts. Watch the two new LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises short films now after the jump.

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. Watch the first Batman: The Killing Joke trailer below. Read More »

Voltron LEGO

For me, there’s something that’s not only fun but almost relaxing about building a cool vehicle or building from various pop culture worlds out of LEGO pieces. Whether it’s the Ghostbusters firehouse or the Batcave from the 1966 Batman TV series, I just love piecing together a LEGO set. And if you’re a fan of Voltron, you’ll want to support this latest LEGO Ideas proposal.

A new custom Voltron LEGO set not only allows you to build the robot from LEGO bricks, but it allows you to assemble the robot from five individual LEGO lions, just like Voltron. Check out the Voltron LEGO set after the jump. Read More »

Will Forte

Almost two weeks ago, principal photography began on David Wain‘s (Wet Hot American Summer) adaptation of A Futile and Stupid Gesture. Based on Josh Karp‘s best-selling book, the story follows National Lampoon co-founder Douglas Kenney, who’s played by Will Forte (MacGruber) in the biopic. Forte is surrounded by nothing but talent in this true-life story, which, according to him, we shouldn’t expect a sanitized version of.

While interviewing the actor for the upcoming comedy, Keanu, he opened up a bit biopic. Below, Will Forte discusses A Futile and Stupid Gesture.

The Simpsons Disney Couch Gag

Over the past two years, The Simpsons really seemed to have upped their game when it comes to delivering unique and bold iterations of their ongoing couch gag in the opening credits. Last year’s couch gags included a tribute to Rick and Morty and an opening from Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi. Plus, back in 2014, The Simpsons took a cue from Disney’s animated hit Frozen. Now their latest couch gag reaches back into the history of Disney, thanks to animator Eric Goldberg, the man responsible for bringing Genie to life in Aladdin and much more.
