HTTYD Netflix Series

How to Train Your Dragon fans may have to wait longer than expected for the next film in the series, but there are TV adventures coming to Netflix this summer. Dragons: Race to the Edge just got a premiere date and a teaser trailer that also seems to be more or less the show’s opening sequence, in which Hiccup and Toothless lead the charge to explore more of their world than ever before. One of the main tools aiding that task is an artifact called the Dragon’s Eye, which also looks like the coolest movie projector ever seen. Check out the HTTYD Netflix series teaser below.

Best Screenprinted Movie Posters of 2014

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.

That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »


Gallery Nucleus has once again teamed with Dreamworks Animation for an art show celebrating the company’s How To Train Your Dragon film series. The How To Train Your Dragon art was created as a tribute to the movies by artists on the film’s creative team, curated specifically for this art exhibit. While the show does have some beautiful original works of art, those are a bit pricey — so I wanted to showcase some of the more affordable limited edition prints they have released (available to purchase online). The piece above is my favorite from the series, TOOTHLESS ON TOP by Ryan Savas. Hit the jump to check out my favorite pieces from the How To Train Your Dragon art show.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (header)

I saw How to Train Your Dragon seven times in theaters when it was released in 2010. For me, few other films have taken better advantage of the IMAX format, and few have done a better job at conveying the exhilaration of flight. But beyond being a technical marvel, it also had a lot of heart and introduced us to one of the most adorable, heart-melting animated characters ever conceived, Toothless.

This weekend, How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters. Could it live up to my impossibly high expectations? Find my video review after the jump.

The How To Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular just finished its first round of performances in Australia and New Zealand and is now poised to swoop onto U.S. shores this summer. It’s a massive, live-action production telling the story of the first film with 80 cast members and 24 life-size, animatronic dragons.

Previously, we’d seen some footage of those dragons but now that the show is up an running, a trailer has been released along with some actual footage. The show should be a good go-between to satisfy fans before How To Train Your Dragon 2 comes out in 2014. Check out the videos below. Read More »

By the time How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters in mid-2014, it’ll have been four years since we were first introduced to hapless Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his trusty Night Fury sidekick Toothless. Thankfully, we’ll have some other Dragon-related entertainment to tide us over in the meantime.

Cartoon Network is set to launch a weekly animated series called Dragons later this year that sees Hiccup and his pals working with the fearsome but friendly creatures, including some new types of dragons not seen in the previous film. Watch the first trailers after the jump.

How To Train Your Dragon fans won’t necessarily have to wait until 2014 to see their favorite characters again. Hiccup, Toothless and the whole crew could soon be flying into to an arena near you.

As you know, this week we launched a new registered user-only commenting section. I thought since the weekends are always slow here on /Film, why not take a look at the most liked comments of last week. Maybe we’ll continue to post this round-up every weekend and you might even see your comment on the /Film front page. The comments are voted on by you, the /film readers and commenters, but /film editors make the final cut. I hope that in coming weeks we’ll have more longer-form thought provoking points, alongside the quick one-liners. So here goes…
