Tomorrow Disney kicks off its own private fan/press event, D23, which takes place every two years. There will be many new materials revealed from a variety of Disney projects, from Frozen and Big Hero 6 to the Pixar films The Good Dinosaur, Inside/Out from Up director Pete Docter, and Finding Dory from Andrew Stanton. The new Mickey Mouse short Get a Horse will be shown off, and then on Saturday there’ll probably be something from that little Star Wars project.
John Lasseter is talking about the animated side of Disney today in advance of the presentations tomorrow, and you can get some of his big statements below. Read More »

The ongoing Star Wars Celebration Europe II gathering in Messe Essen, Germany, has yielded some new details about Star Wars Episode VII, including the confirmation that John Williams would return to provide the score. But wasn’t the only new project discussed at the event.
Animator Dave Filoni took the stage to for a panel about Star Wars Rebels, the animated Disney XD series scheduled to premiere next year. We first got wind of the project back in May. This weekend, Filoni was able to share some new details and imagery from the show, including the new logo and a couple bits of concept art. Hit the jump to check it all out.

Marvel Studios knocked its panel out of the park today in Hall H at Comic Con. The third film on the schedule was James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy. Until today we’d seen only some concept art showing off the characters in a general sense. Now, along with a new logo treatment above, we have a concept poster design that reflects part of the footage shown today.
Even better, it gives you a very good idea of what the five primary characters will look like. Check it out below. Read More »
We’ll learn a lot about Gareth Edwards‘ new telling of Godzilla in the next couple days, beginning with a visit to the so-called Godzilla Experience set up by Warner Bros. and Legendary, later today. We might have the first full film image of Godzilla at that point, as well as a better description of the approach Edwards has taken to the movie.
For now, the Godzilla Experience app has provided a new piece of concept art that shows off what appears to be part of the giant beast, and in so doing helps give a sense of scale for the monster. Check that out below, along with a new poster.
Keep an eye open for a couple more Godzilla reports today or tomorrow and Saturday. (You can also revist the Mondo poster for the film’s Comic Con appearance, which also shows off a bit of the title beast.)

On Saturday July 20, fans will have a much better idea of what Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will look like. (And maybe of Phase 3, too.)
That’s when Marvel will take the Hall H stage at San Diego Comic-Con to show off footage of the next two Marvel films, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That’s confirmed. Beyond that, we’re hoping to hear news on Guardians of the Galaxy (a full cast reveal?), The Avengers 2 (maybe the subtitle?), Ant-Man (casting?) and maybe even what’s coming after (Doctor Strange, Black Panther, etc.)
But those first two, those will definitely be there and Marvel will get fans excited by handing out two exclusive posters on the convention hall floor. Check them out below. Read More »

Roughly seven decades will have passed between Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) will learn the hard way that the past still has a way of catching up with you.
Those familiar with the comics know that the new film’s title refers to James “Bucky” Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Cap’s onetime BFF who returns as a powerful nemesis. We’ve still got some time to wait before we see the two cross paths, as The Winter Soldier doesn’t land until next spring. But a just-revealed bit of concept art hints at what their fiery showdown might look like. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

Memories seem to get shorter during the summer movie season. Even if we’ve been following a blockbuster for years, the instant it opens, we’re on to the next one. Who cares about Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, or Fast and Furious 6, when Man of Steel is coming, right? But once that’s out, it’ll be on to Pacific Rim and then The Wolverine, extending through to the release of Star Wars Episode IX, Star Trek 5 and Spider-Man vs. The Avengers.
On that note, it’s good to step back and dig into these blockbusters after we’ve had our way with them. Take Star Trek Into Darkness, for example. The J.J. Abrams-directed sequel is still in theaters. Whether you love it, hate it, or or are somewhere in the middle, it’s a towering technical achievement. There are IMAX 3D scenes, massive digital effects and the re-introduction of the most famous Trek villains of all: The Klingons, sure to appear in a third film.
After the jump, check out some concept art detailing the look of the Klingons in the film as well as some designs of the spacesuits. Read More »
