Somewhere in the vast void of the Intardwebz, I mentioned that it was only a matter of time before Disney and Marvel teamed to bring us a comic based animated movie. That time is quickly approaching as Walt Disney Animation Studios has announced Big Hero 6, the animated movie.
The Walt Disney Studios have announced that Richard Madden of Game of Thrones fame, has been cast as the Prince in the upcoming live-action adaptation of the Cinderella fairy tale. We’ve learned previously that Cate Blanchett and Lily James had been hired as the wicked stepmother and Cinderella. I really have no idea when the release date for this movie is, but I am a tad interested in seeing this knowing that Sir Kenneth Branagh is directing.
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.
Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart, Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and features music from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and award-winning composer Randy Newman (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Toy Story 3”). The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in 3D in select theaters.
I’ve seen the rumors circulating around the web that Iron Man 3 director, Shane Black, is eying Doc Savage as his next film, and I’m not sure how to feel about that.
A banner for Pacific Rim dropped earlier this week, but Warner Bros. has but that one to shame with the massive banner that you may see in your local theater soon.
This week, things get dark and serious when Zach goes inside the mind of child killer in Fritz Lang’s 1931 classic, M.
A simple, haunting musical phrase whistled offscreen tells us that a young girl will be killed. “Who is the Murderer?” pleads a nearby placard as serial killer Hans Beckert, played by Peter Lorre (Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon), closes in on little Elsie Beckmann. In his harrowing masterwork M, Fritz Lang (Metropolis, The Testament of Dr. Mabuse) merges trenchant social commentary with chilling suspense, creating a panorama of private madness and public hysteria that to this day remains the blueprint for the psychological thriller.

A while ago it was confirmed that Daredeveil had indeed returned to the hands of Marvel due to 20th Century Fox not being able to keep the property in production long enough to retain the rights. Today, we learn about three more properties that have been returned to Marvel (Disney).
The highly anticipated third film in the Iron Man franchise has arrived!
Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
You’ve read the Major Spoilers Review, and now We want to know what you think. Did the movie beat the pants out of the previous two installments, or was there something lacking? Is this the first step in the downfall of the comic book movie, or does Iron Man 3 really kick off the next great wave for Marvel?
YOU WATCHED IT, NOW RATE IT!
Mondo has been creating alternate forms of movie posters for years now by recreating classic movie sheets and capitalizing on current releases alike. The company has revealed three posters they will be selling to coincide with the Iron Man 3 release this Friday and you can figure out where to buy yours after the jump.
The U.S.S. Enterprise has been in challenging space battles before and with footage of the ship crashing down in multiple trailers it looks like it won’t make it out safely in Into Darkness. Perhaps the image on this IMAX poster is what sends the Enterprise falling to Earth.
