‘Big Hero 6’ may only be tangentially related to the Marvel comic on which it is based and completely unconnected to the larger Marvel cinematic universe, but it still has the obligatory Stan Lee cameo. Yes, this is an animated movie featuring an animated version of the legendary comic book icon/Marvel mascot. But hey, it’s a tradition at this point.
‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 will come to a temporary midseason conclusion “Coda” this coming Sunday, but the franchise’s past and future weigh heavily on creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman. Not only has a recent interview brought to light the creator’s “regret” over a past season finale, but so too do we have an update on the shifting locations of ‘The Walking Dead’'s spinoff companion series.
‘Arrow‘ and ‘The Flash‘ fans are already eagerly anticipating the upcoming two-night crossover event, but could an even more ‘Super’ hero lie in their future? We’ve heard time and time again that DC intends to keep its TV and movie continuities separate, but a new report suggests CBS’ upcoming ‘Supergirl‘ series could well come to play with The CW’s red and green-suited superheroes in the future.
Like certain other spring series not to be named, ‘Orphan Black’ mercilessly teases us to wait for its return in the spring. We’d previously learned that ‘Shameless’ star Justin Chatwin would take a mysterious new season 3 role in 2015, but now the full details have been revealed, along with cast additions from ‘True Blood,’ ‘Black Swan,’ ‘Warehouse 13' and more.
The new trailer for ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ seemingly has everything you’d want out of a movie. There’s big, crazy action, Samuel L. Jackson acting like a lunatic, adorable puppies, a supporting cast filled with British actors that you love, and, most importantly, the simple presence of Colin Firth. The fact that Firth is playing a gentleman spy in the old school British ‘Avengers’/Sean Connery/James Bond mold is just a bonus.
‘Late Night’ host Seth Meyers’ Second Chance Theatre—a second home for the ‘SNL’ skits that never were—has so far given a playground to some wild stuff, but former ‘SNL’ star Jason Sudeikis had something a little more lo-fi in mind for his spin on the ol’ Second Chance-mobile. You can practically hear the pitch meeting: “It’s about a guy who wants to give juggling lessons, but everyone hates him.” Simple enough, right?
Things apparently got buckwild on the set of ‘Into the Woods,’ with acting queen of the world (that is her official title, by the way) Meryl Streep very nearly dying (read: probably not dying, but let’s go with it) when she almost fell off a table. It was, however, a witchy table that she happened to be jumping on while playing a witch, complete with witchy robes, which she (witchily?) tripped on. Streep’s fall was broken by one single brave soul: Emily Blunt.
Released in 1993, ‘Jurassic Park’ is still one of the biggest movies of all-time and one of the best action-adventure movies of the blockbuster era. How is it that the visual effects in a movie from 1993 look better than most movies made today? You can find out about that, and all other things ‘Jurassic Park’ in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Steven Spielberg’s prehistoric classic. Hold on to your butts!
‘The Flash’ hung around this week, despite a “Power Outage” and the approaching holiday festivity, but December 2 will see the Scarlet Speedster really heating things up when Oliver Queen comes to down for two-part crossover “Flash vs. Arrow.” We’ve seen the photos, but watch for yourself what happens when Barry takes on the emerald archer in the first “Flash vs. Arrow” trailer!
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 won’t bring forth any fire or blood until spring 2015, but that doesn’t prevent us from using “The Sight” to look ahead. The network has seemingly launched a new viral teaser campaign for season 5, revealing a few brief looks at Arya in the new season, as well as…some other stuff. Maybe. I don’t know, it’s weird.
