Space Mountain in Tomorrowland

This morning, Disney released a new poster for Tomorrowland. Russ grabbed it before I was finished with breakfast, but I noticed something hidden within the image that is noteworthy – hence this post.

Ever since it was announced that director Brad Bird and screenwriter/producer Damon Lindelof’s secret 1952 project was to be titled Tomorrowland, Disney fanatics have speculated about what role the Disneyland park and Walt Disney himself might play in the film. We know that Walt Disney’s creations at the 1964 World’s Fair play into the plot. (specifically the ‘It’s a Small World After All’ attraction, which was later relocated to Disneyland, where it remains today.) Lindelof has said that the movie will show the origins of Tomorrowland but would not show Disneyland itself — but that doesn’t mean we won’t see notable aspects of Disneyland in the movie itself.

And today’s Tomorrowland poster gives us a first look at that. Will we see Disneyland’s Space Mountain in Tomorrowland?

Neill Blomkamp District 10

Neill Blomkamp‘s District 9 was a milestone. A refreshing blend of faux-documentary style with blockbuster effects telling a story of substance and originality. It marked the arrival of a filmmaker who demanded to be noticed. He followed it up with Elysium, a visually gorgeous film filled with great ideas that never reaches its potential. Now he’s got Chappie, another great sci-fi idea that squanders its premise. How that film will do is anyone’s guess, but if I was a betting man, I’d say Blomkamp’s next movie – a new Alien film – had better be a hit or he’s going straight into director jail.

If either Chappie or Alien are big hits Blomkamp still wants to make a sequel to District 9, a project regularly but not officially referred to as District 10. In fact, he even has a new idea for the sequel, but feels like he couldn’t do it justice until he gets away from his aesthetic for a while. Read the Neill Blomkamp District 10 quotes below.

The Connection

The Connection seems like the vaguest of titles, but once you realize what the film is about it’s actually pretty perfect. It’s a new spin on William Friedkin‘s The French Connection, with the “French” part omitted because, well, the film is already French.

Jean Dujardin plays Pierre Michel, a real-life Marseilles magistrate. In 1975, he tried to take down Gaetano Zampa (Gilles Lellouche), the kingpin behind one of the biggest drug smuggling operations in history. Cédric Jimenez directs the film. Watch The Connection red-band trailer after the jump. Read More »

Dredd 2

“The guy who dresses up like the Crow is going to give you a lesson in film finance.”

Producer Adi Shankar is a dedicated self-promoter; how many other young producers are increasingly recognizable to people outside the film business? Shankar is back with a new video, and he’s going to tell Dredd fans something they probably don’t want to hear: as much as the fanbase may want to see Dredd 2, it probably won’t happen without the addition of a major star to help boost international sales.

Best Movie Robots of All Time

This weekend, director Neill Blomkamp adds a new member to an exclusive club: movies with really cool robots. It’s a cross-section of movies big and small that drive the story forward with characters made of metal and wire. Sometimes they’re menacing, sometimes they’re hilarious, but the best movie robots are always unforgettable.

In honor of Blomkamp’s movie, Chappie, I’ve ranked my 25 favorite movie robots of all time. It wasn’t an easy task. There are so many subtle differences you have to consider. Is a cyborg a robot? Is an alien a robot? For example, Darth Vader is “more machine than man,” just like RoboCop. Are they both robots? In the end I went with my gut. If the character felt like a robot, or its robotic nature added something to the movie, it made the list. Also, this is (once again) a personal list. I didn’t grow up on Westworld or The Day the Earth Stood Still. I never really felt like Blade Runner‘s replicants were robots. So it’s a little weird and surprising but hopefully that’s why you want to check it out. Hit the jump to find out the 25 Best Movie Robots of All Time.

Tomorrowland poster

Brad Bird‘s new film Tomorrowland, starring Britt Robertson and George Clooney, is still mysterious, even after the first trailer and TV spot debuts. We know the film follows characters played by Robertson and Clooney as they “embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as Tomorrowland.” A new Tomorrowland trailer arrives on Monday, March 9, and that will probably tell us a lot more about the film. Along with that, there will be a live Q&A with Bird and producer Damon Lindelof. For now, we’ve got a new Tomorrowland poster, which you can see below.

Hot Toys Avengers Hulkbuster 12

UPDATE: Hot Toys has uploaded some interior photos of this set, which show Iron Man himself. See them below.

When Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, there are sure to be some characters and surprises fans will want to take home with them. But based on the trailers and early buzz, the most take-home worthy character or outfit has got to be the Hulkbuster, a suit Iron Man wears to try to handle Bruce Banner when he becomes the Hulk. The circumstances of this showdown, in terms of the narrative, are still relatively mysterious but the suit itself has already become a symbol of how Joss Whedon is taking things to a new level in the sequel.

Hot Toys – the world’s foremost creator of high end scaled collectibles – have just revealed their Hulkbuster toy. It’s an almost perfect replica of what you’ll see in theaters on May 1. Check out the Hot Toys Hulkbuster images below. Read More »

As a brilliant observer and cinematographer, Maysles not only differentiated his films from the work of other documentarians, he set the standard for what all documentaries could be.
