Out of all the big TV news that came out of network upfronts, the official pick up of a new Muppets TV show was certainly among the top stories. The fact we’re going to get a primetime Muppets show with slightly more adult themes that explores the backstory of the characters is interesting; the show has the potential to hit a lot of perfect notes. The first trailer definitely showed that promise. Now, adding to the trailer, the official Disney blog posted 12 new photos from the show that reveal some more minor characters and fun situations we’ll see when the new Muppets TV show airs this fall.

Where better to learn more about Tomorrowland than in Tomorrowland?
At the Tomorrowland theme park at Disneyland (and soon Epcot in Disney World) Disney has opened a brand new preview of Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. In addition to 10 minutes of footage from the 1964 World’s Fair section of the film, there’s a a mysterious selection of images before you enter the theater, followed by a prop and concept art exhibit that offers some amazing teases at what the future holds for fans come May 22.
Below see a bunch of photos from the Tomorrowland Disneyland sneak peak, which opens April 17 for fans at Disneyland in California, and watch our video blog reaction. Read More »
Monday night in Hollywood, The Avengers made the most of one half block. The cast went from Jimmy Kimmel Live where they played Family Feud, analyzed fan art and were interviewed, then walked across Hollywood Blvd. to the world premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron at the Dolby Theater. But you don’t have to brave the crowds and traffic to see the madness. Below, we’ve got the Avengers Family Feud video along with some other Kimmel videos and a selection of the best red carpet photos from the premiere. Check them out below. Read More »
Walley World is officially open in the first two images from the new Vacation movie. The film, which is out July 31, is both a sequel to and a reboot of the original franchise as Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles as the Griswolds and Ed Helms plays their son, Rusty. Now grown, Rusty wants to take his own family (including wife Christina Applegate) on the Walley World vacation he never got as a child. He tries, but as you can imagine, it probably isn’t going to go so smoothly.
Or is it? As the moose out front probably told you, in the first official photos, you not only see the full Griswold family you get a look at Walley World. A Walley World that’s apparently open this time around. See the new Vacation movie photos below. Read More »
Walking onto the set of Insidious Chapter 3 is almost exactly like walking into the Further. That’s not just because, on day 25 of a 29 day shoot, they’re shooting scenes in the Further. It’s because first-time director Leigh Whannel likes a very quiet set and everything is kept incredibly dark. How dark is it? So dark, PAs walk around the stage with flashlight head attachments. So dark that even the dim monitors around which a small group of journalists huddles in far the corner are putting off too much light. A ceiling to floor curtain is dragged in front of us to just make sure things remain dark.
After writing and co-starring in the first two films, Whannel is doing both those jobs as well as directing Insidious Chapter 3. It’s a prequel to the first two, set three years before the first movie, and is described as an origin story for Elise, Lin Shaye’s character. She’ll be called in to help the Lambert family (Stefanie Scott and Dermot Mulroney) deal with some issues in the Further, the alternate plane of existence that’s home to some of the most terrible creatures imaginable. In Insidious Chapter 3, the main villain is described as “the physical manifestation of cancer” and he was the star of the brief, frightening scene we saw shot. It’s August 12, 2014 at Delfino Stages, about 20 miles outside of Los Angeles and this is our Insidious 3 set visit. Read More »
