Second Full Dumbo Trailer Drops

Disney has released a second trailer for the upcoming live-action adaptation of their classic film, Dumbo, from director Tim Burton. With an all-star cast led by Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, and Michael Keaton, Dumbo hits theaters on March 29th, 2019.

Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Farrell) and his children Milly and Joe to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Second Toy Story 4 Clip Drops

Disney and Pixar have followed us yesterday’s Toy Story 4 teaser trailer with a second, very meta clip introducing two more new characters, Ducky (Keegan-Michael Key) and Bunny (Jordan Peele), who are very excited about the first look at Toy Story 4, despite not knowing the film’s longtime quotes. We even get a bit of back-story for the new characters:

“Woody’s journey in Toy Story 4 includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.”

Final Alita: Battle Angel Trailer Drops

20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment have released the final full trailer for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel, giving us plenty of new footage, and a better idea of the story for the film. The new trailer even boasts much more refined visual effects, and our first looks at Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), and Jennifer Connelly (Labyrinth).

This is certainly an improvement from previous trailers, with better visuals, action, performances, and just general choice of scenes. Alita: Battle Angel hits theaters on February 14th, 2019.

R.I.P. Stan Lee

Stan

Stan Lee, the creator of some of the most iconic characters in history, has passed this morning at the age of 95. Best known for creating characters for Marvel, such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, Black Panther, Captain America, and many more. The cause of death is currently unknown, but our prayers are with his friends and family in this difficult time. Below is a copy of my Instagram post, with a memory of the time some friends and I met the legendary creator.

There are some people that are fixtures in your life. Figures you assume will live forever because what would the world be like without them. Stan Lee was easily one of those people. One of the key figureheads behind every geek, no matter what side you were on, he was an endlessly charming man, and a snake in a boot for many. Shortly after meeting some of my greatest friends in the world,  @theo_ripper and @r.andrewsandoval, we went to the Spike TV Scream Awards together, and after waiting in line for hours, they started shuffling people around. They pushed everyone out to their seats as we circled around to the edge of the side of the stage. Everyone except us. Just as the three of us, the last people in line, reached the exit to our seats… they ran out. They had us stand there while they searched for more. Alone, and waiting, we weren’t sure what was going to happen next, but as we were standing there, Stan Lee came up behind us. We were star struck. Unsure what to say or do, but he greeted us nonetheless. We tried to take a picture with him before the staff shuffled him away but they were too quick, sadly. But, as Andy has already said, we’ll have that moment forever. Rest in Paradise to the man that solidified the standing of heroes in pop culture. The myth that has lived a life of ups and downs, endless friendships and epic falling outs. The legend that has won our hearts, year after year with his wit and loving passion for the heroes and worlds that he has allowed us to escape to for decades. Excelsior, my fellow true believers.

First Detective Pikachu Trailer Drops

The first trailer for the incredible creepy live-action Pokemon film, Detective Pikachu, is now online, and it’s not what I was expecting. The Pokemon themselves are rendered in an uncanny-valley like level of realism, and it’s strange. Starring Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), and Ken Watanabe (Inception), the story follows a young officer on the hunt for his missing Father.

Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10th, 2019.

First Official Toy Story 4 Teaser Trailer

Disney and Pixar Studios have unveiled the first official teaser trailer for the long-awaited upcoming sequel, Toy Story 4. The sequel will see the cast of Toy Story 3 returning, now belonging to Bonnie, whom they were left with at the end of the previous film as Andy left for college.

Director Josh Cooley introduced the trailer as such, “Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story. And it was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.

Marvel Launches Avengers 4 Countdown Clock

Marvel Studios has launched a new countdown clock on their website for the release of Avengers 4, still giving us no indication for the title of the movie.

While we still have no information other than rumors on one of the most anticipated films of all time, we have confirmation from directors, The Russo Brothers, that the film is currently sitting at exactly 3 hours long. That could change in the editing bay, but as a fan, I could easily sit through 3 hours of Avengers 4, if if Avengers: Infinity War was any indication of what to expect.

According to The Wrap, Chris McKay (Lego Batman The Movie) has been chosen to man the director’s chair for an upcoming Jonny Quest film. Jonny Quest is also expected to launch a live-action Hanna Barbera-verse, which means we’ve officially mined nearly all of the shared universe ideas. Additionally, McKay is still attached to the live-action Nightwing film, which is still his top focus, as of this moment.

Jonny Quest debuted in 1964 and follows a young boy, Jonny, who travels the world with his adventurous scientist father, Benton Quest, his bodyguard, Race Bannon, and adopted brother, Hadji. It’s considered one of the most beloved animated series, and can still be found airing on Boomerang, today.

The service will launch in the United States in late 2019, with the previously announced Mandalorian from Jon Favreau, as well as official confirmation of the Loki series, with Tom Hiddleston reprising his fan-favorite role.

Additionally, we also have the reveal of a new series showcasing the early life of Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with Diego Luna reprising his role. “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.” Currently no release date has been set for that series.

Netflix has shared the newest full trailer for Andy Serkis’ Mowgli: Welcome to the Jungle. The re-telling of the classic Jungle Book story features quite the star-studded cast, and should be a fun film to watch at home for the holidays, when it hits Netflix on December 7th.

All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. (Benedict Cumberbatch). But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins. The other story’s central animal characters are: Kaa, the snake (Cate Blanchett); the leader of the wolf pack, Akela (Peter Mullan); the scavenging hyena, Tabaqui (Tom Hollander); Nisha, the female wolf (Naomie Harris), who adopts the baby Mowgli as one of her cubs; Nisha’s mate, Vihaan (Eddie Marsan); and Mowgli’s Brother Wolf (Jack Reynor).

In what is most certainly a surprise, given his rising star, Taron Egerton revealed while promoting his upcoming film, Robin Hood, that he will not be returning to the role of Eggsy in Kingsman 3 for Matthew Vaughn. Kingsman 3 is currently set for a November 9th, 2019 release, and the cast is slowly being revealed with names like Brad Pitt and Ralph Fiennes rumored to star.

“I don’t know how hot off the press this is, and I think I’m allowed to say it, but I’m not in the next Kingsman movie. We’re still very much in business together, but his next journey in that world doesn’t involve me.”
