A massive transformation is now underway now at Disney California Adventure park, as the Hollywood Tower Hotel (the building that houses Twilight Zone’s Tower Of Terror) is being remodeled into The Collector’s Fortress. The lettering has been removed, and the building is now covered with scaffolding. Tower of Terror will make its final drop later this year, which doesn’t give the Walt Disney Imagineers much time to transform the attraction into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! opening Summer 2017.
To prepare for The Collector’s arrival in Disney California Adventure, the mouse house has released a new video giving us an extensive look at the new attraction building. Hit the jump to check out The Collector’s Fortress.

Just last week we learned that the suit that Chadwick Boseman wears as Black Panther was created entirely in post-production by visual effects. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo confirmed that the look they wanted the suit to have on camera simply wasn’t possible to create practically without having a suit that would have been much more torturous than the suit that was worn on set (which was already rather inconvenient to wear, especially in the hot heat of Atlanta, Georgia where much of the movie was shot).
Now we can see how visual effects were used to bring Black Panther’s suit to the big screen in the way that Anthony & Joe Russo wanted. A visual effects reel from the company Cinesite gives us a glimpse into the level of details that went into creating the suit, as well as Hydra’s Siberian base where the other super soldiers were being stored, and the Spider-Man centric end credits scene.

Today we want to introduce you to the Baybuster, a custom car rig created for the filmmaker that allows him to get crazy car flips. If Michael Bay had his own tricked out Mad Max-style Batmobile, the Baybuster would be it. Hit the jump to watch some videos showing the Baybuster in action.

What’s the point of showing up on a talk show if you don’t have a movie, tv show or music album to promote? It seems like almost everything these days is timed for the sole purpose of spiking the social shares and trying to create an explosion of buzz in the real world. Movie promotion usually comes in two waves, with the release of a film theatrically, and then later around the home video release. After that, we usually don’t see more material from a film because film studios believe there isn’t a point. But now in the world of cinematic universes and not just franchises but brands that stretch into the far reaches, maybe they see a reason?
I recently discovered that Universal Pictures has been updating the Jurassic Park youtube account with new content on almost a daily basis. The new content is anything from featurettes that originally appeared on the home video release, to behind the scenes b-roll footage, to rough-cut dailies, previs and more. Now I know you might not be as big of a fan of Jurassic World as I am, but I think you might be able to find some enjoyment in the wealth of content that has been released. I’ve always found it frustrating how much footage is captured during the making of a film, yet only a small percentage of it makes it to the home video release. I hope more movie studios can learn from this.
Hit the jump to check out some of the highlights from the Jurassic World behind the scenes footage.

We’re a little over a month away from the release of Doctor Strange, and while there are undoubtedly plenty of fans who are excited to see what Marvel Studios has to offer with their latest installment to the Marvel cinematic universe, it feels like the hype isn’t where it should be. I’m not sure if Doctor Strange is too obscure or mystical for fans to latch onto him, but the excitement just doesn’t seem to be there. Hopefully I’m wrong.
In an effort to get the hype machine cranked up a bit, Marvel has released a batch of new Doctor Strange TV spots. There’s a lot of footage shared between them, but there are some glimpses of new footage dispersed between what we’ve already seen. Watch them all below! Read More »
Not only was What We Do In The Shadows one of my favorite films of 2015, it shocked us all by coming in at #2 on the list of the best movies of the year put together by all of us here at /Film. Right now the film’s director, Taika Waititi, is busy in Australia behind the camera for Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the Marvel Studios franchise. But before he went into superhero territory, Waititi went back to New Zealand for an indie adventure comedy that debuted at Sundance this year and is now readily available for you to watch.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next week, but you can actually buy it on Digital HD right now if you were so inclined. And honestly, it could be the best decision you make this month, or even next month. The film takes the character dynamic of Up and tosses it into the brush of New Zealand with adorable hilarity that only Taika Waititi can deliver. If you need any more convincing, you can watch the first 10 minutes of Hunt for the Wilderpeople after the jump. Read More »
