sonic the hedgehog trailer

It’s amazing how fast one trailer can turn our opinions around. Six months after Paramount Pictures put Sonic the Hedgehog on hold to do a last-minute redesign of its lead character, the studio has dropped a new trailer with an infinitely less terrifying version of the speedster. Gone are the tombstone teeth and the horrifyingly human traits that made the video game character look like a creepy mutant version of himself — the classic Sonic with his huge eyes and white gloves is speeding his way to the big screen. Get your first look at the way better redesign in the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer.

Maps of Movieland

Wouldn’t it be great if all the characters, creatures and places we loved from movies existed in one complete cinematic world? Last Action Hero tried to bring us close to that ideal, as did Ready Player One in some capacity. But cinephile David Honnorat wanted to pack even more movies into a fictional world. That’s why he created Movieland, a massive map featuring movies as various locations within larger regions like Teenage Islands, Horror Lakes, True Story Hills, Valley of Love, Action Bay and more. But now, in a collaboration with illustrator Alex Chauvel, he’s releasing new illustrated maps providing more detail to those genre locations, and they look wonderful.

Check out David Honnorat’s Maps of Movieland below and find out how you can get your hands on them. Read More »

4K Star Wars On Disney+

If you’re looking for even more reasons to sign up for Disney+, here’s some news: all of the Star Wars movies have been remastered in 4K with Dolby Vision and Atmos support for the service. This will mark the first time the original trilogy, and those pesky prequels, have been made available in 4K anywhere. And while there have been rumors of a 4K box set containing the complete Skywalker Saga, for now, Disney+ is the only place you’ll be able to have access to the remasters.

the mandalorian special look

Mere hours before The Mandalorian is set to make its debut on Disney+, Disney has released a new special look at the Star Wars live-action series. Anticipation is at an all-time high for The Mandalorian, and Disney has been playing it safe with the marketing thus far, showing thrilling action sequences and lots of ominous shots of Werner Herzog narrating, but revealing precious little about the plot of the space western series. The new The Mandalorian special look is no different, showing us footage we’ve seen before, but offering us the tiniest morsel of an extended scene in the cantina. Watch The Mandalorian special look below.

his dark materials the idea of the north review

I’m not usually one to encourage people to stick around with a show because “it gets good later!” But if newcomers to His Dark Materials were uncertain about this series after the intriguing but confusing first episode, then the second episode may be the one to hook them. Not that “The Idea of the North” is any less mystifying or provides any more answers to the many mysteries that it’s juggling. But with its mid-episode reveal — which comes as a surprise even to longtime book fans — it dramatically opens up the world(s) of the HBO fantasy series.

weekend box office doctor sleep

Has the Stephen King movie adaptation bubble burst? Or was opening a big horror movie a week after Halloween a huge misstep? In any case, Doctor Sleep, Warner Bros.’ big sequel to The Shining, failed to generate much steam over the weekend. The Mike Flanagan-directed King adaptation was tracking toward a $25 million opening weekend, but the real result was an underwhelming $14.1 million. To add insult to injury, the film came in second to Roland Emmerich’s abysmal Midway.

community movie

Community always played the long game with its jokes, but there’s one joke that it was never able to make good on. After the throwaway joke of “Six seasons and a movie!” became a rallying cry for the twice-cancelled comedy, fans have long wished for the feature film that would reunite the misfit study group and fulfill that mantra. It’s an idea that creator Dan Harmon has played with, and which the stars have supported, though it seems less likely as we get further away from Community‘s cult-show heyday. But four years after Community wrapped up its six-season run, we’re getting rumblings about a Community movie once again.
