Karate Kid footage

By now, you probably know the premise of YouTube Red’s upcoming series Cobra Kai. It’s a continuation of the story that began in the 1984 movie The Karate Kid, but flipping the script to make Johnny Lawrence – the wonderfully douchey villain played by William Zabka – into the sympathetic protagonist and turning the film’s crane-kicking hero Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) into a big jerk.

The show picks up three decades after the fateful events of the Under-18 All-Valley Karate Tournament that provided the setting for the rousing climax of the ’84 film, and in a new video, the series creators reveal some never-before-seen Karate Kid footage that they’ll use to recontextualize that famous martial arts match for the new show.

Ready Player One VR Featurette

A majority of Steven Spielberg‘s latest blockbuster Ready Player One takes place in the virtual world of The OASIS. In 2045, people escape the crowded, seemingly mundane real world to explore and play in this virtual world where they can be anyone and do anything. The only way to enter this world is by way of virtual reality headsets, some more complex and sophisticated than others.

But VR headsets aren’t just a sci-fi gadget of the future, and the real VR headsets on the market right now turned out to be extremely helpful in creating the world of The OASIS. A new Ready Player One featurette focuses on how director Steven Spielberg used the HTC VIVE headset to figure out how he would shoot sequences set in The OASIS. Read More »

Marvel Studios Legacy Featurette

Sometimes you’ll see a trailer describe a movie’s director as a “visionary filmmaker.” That term is rarely applied to a producer, but that’s truly the best description of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, the mega-producer who built a multi-billion cinematic empire out of his idea to make a series of blockbuster movies that feature interconnected characters and storylines.

As we continue our trip toward the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios has looked back on its 10 years of existence so far and appears to be feeling a little nostalgic. Today, they released a new behind-the-scenes featurette that includes interviews with the filmmakers and casts of many of the MCU’s biggest hits. Read More »

Beauty and the Beast Recording Sessions

Though you may not know Howard Ashman by name, you’re undoubtedly familiar with his work as one of the lyricists behind the original songs for Disney’s animated classics Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. Unfortunately, Ashman passed away far too young at 40 after a battle with AIDS. But his legacy will live through the Disney movies he left his stamp on, and a new documentary wants to make sure everyone remembers him.

Simply titled Howard, the film hails from Beauty and the Beast producer Don Hahn and explores the life and career of the lyricist and playwright. A new clip has debuted to show how he worked behind the scenes during recording sessions at Disney during production on Beauty and the Beast. That means we get to see rare behind the scenes footage of Jerry Orbach and Angela Lansbury singing the tune “Be Our Guest” as Lumiere and Mrs. Potts respectively. Read More »
