Disney and Pixar Announce 8 Untitled Projects from 2016-2018

Animated Movies are hard to make. They take anywhere from 2-4 years to complete, which is a lot longer than normal production films. So Disney and Pixar plan a few years ahead for their blockbuster films. Today they announced they have dates set for these future films that may or may not even be thought of yet. The eight films, scheduled for dates between 2016-2018 will be split even at 4 each, per a studio. Remember these dates aren't really set in stone and are more of a "get this done by around this time" kind of thing.

Quicksilver Cast in X-Men: Days of Future Past! (Will Cause Problems for Avengers 2?)

Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox are going to cause problems in the Marvel Universe. 

Well, before I get into the big legal problems that are sure to arise. Bryan Singer announced through twitter that actor Evan Peters (Kick Ass, American Horror Story) has been cast as Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now commence how this causes a lot of problems. 

Where to begin? Hmmm. Lets start with Marvel Studios announced that in the current script for The Avengers 2, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were going to be joining the cast. Thats cool and all, but they problems were they are Magneto's kids and thats were it gets legal fuzzy. 

20th Century Fox owns the rights to X-Men and it's catalog of mutants. That includes Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff) and Quicksilver (Pietro Maximoff) kids to non other than Magneto himself. So Marvel Studios, owned by Disney, have their legal hands full of how to get this scenario to work. Well, reports are saying Marvel could use the two characters as along as they don't say who they are kids of or they are "mutants". Yes Fox has the rights to "mutants". 

Does Marvel and Fox have an agreement to use the characters 2 separate films? Or did Fox just pull this out of nowhere to really stick it Marvel about stealing two of their characters? You don't see Captain America aka Steve Rodgers showing up in The Wolverine without the Stars and Stripes. 

Apparently more reports are coming in saying that Marvel can indeed use the characters, but not the mutant names, but can use, Piertro and Wanda, their real names. That makes sense but sucks for fanboys seeing these characters in separate universes a year apart. They could somehow down the road merge the universes into a super marvel cinematic universe. 

HitFix reports "we're going to see is a legally-negotiated stand-off in which we'll get two totally different versions of one character. While (Fox and Marvel) may act like things are amicable in public, HitFix sources say otherwise." They add, "The way the arrangement works, Marvel Studios cannot refer to the character as a 'mutant,' and they can't mention Magneto at all. Likewise, Fox can't make any reference to The Avengers in their film.  That means they'll have to either explain his powers in a different way in The Avengers 2, or they'll just have to make no mention of his origin at all."

More info to come in due time when this all gets figured out

Full Trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins Online Now!!!

Warner Bros. Games Montreal has released the full trailer for their prequel game Batman: Arkham Origins today! The footage shown is obviously not in-game footage but a beautiful cinematic trailer. It looks stunning and I would pay theater money to go see a Batman movie that looks like this thing. The game is considered a prequel because it takes place before the first two Arkham games and is when Batman first came around.

Also, They announced that voice of Batman to all, Kevin Conroy, will be returning to voice Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also, Superherohype announced that Deathstroke will be a playable character *say whaaaa*. That will be awesome! 

Developed by  Warner Bros. Games Montreal, Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline occurring several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Taking place before the rise of Gotham City's most dangerous villains and assassins, the game showcases a young, raw, unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, witness identities being formed and key relationships being forged.

Batman: Arkham Origins will be available on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on October 25th 

Here is the trailer we all will enjoy

Full Trailer for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' is Here and it's Epic!

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures debuted the last and fullest trailer for Guillermo del Toro's baby Pacific Rim. This thing looks epic, like really epic epicness. It has amazing people behind the scenes and a fantastic cast that includes Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Hunnam) and an untested trainee —who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

This will be Epic!

New Full Trailer for Vin Diesel's 'Riddick' Looks Awesome!

Vin Diesel is a very complex man. He is huge and manly in every single way but he's also a huge nerd. He is a D&D Master since way back and has passion for sci-fi. Nothing proves that more than his Riddick Trilogy. This is his baby and I have to say with the budget raised independently with a pretty modest budget for a sic-fi epic of $38 million, it looks fantastic! I'm pleasantly surprised all around by this films look. 

In the film, the infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy.

Riddick hits theaters and IMAX on September 6th

First Trailer for 'Arrested Development' Season 4!!

It's been seven years since the amazing 'Arrested Development' went lights out, but thats not keeping it down forever. Netflix decided to breath the life back into the Bluthe family for a 4th season that will stream all 15 episodes at midnight on May 26th. I recently decided to start watching the series on Neflix a few weeks ago because I've never seen it really (I know I'm crazy!!!). The show is pure comical genius and by the look of the trailer, it will still be a high point for the series. Check it out below.

The trailer is after the jump!

The First Trailer for 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

The Avengers was a huge thing last year if you missed it. You'd have to be under a rock to have missed any news about it, but they announced they are making a tv series based around agents in the S.H.I.E.L.D. doing their thing when the Avengers are off doing bigger things. I will say that one guy in the trailer reminds me of Luke Cage a lot. (not just because he's big and black, but because he's strong and powerful!). Anyways, check out the trailer and see how it actually doesn't look too bad being it's on ABC. 

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series.  “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.

Trailer for 'Gravity' Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney!

Warner Bros. debuted the trailer for a film I've been waiting very (un)patiently for awhile now for Gravity. I wasn't let down at all! Alfonso Cuaron is a very talented director that can suck you into the world he created no problem. His latest film is very sic-fi, it's about an astronaut (Sandra Bullock) going through space alone after a accident on the spacecraft. George Clooney is also in the movie as another astronaut, but rumors have been going around that Bullock spends much of the film alone in isolation. This will sure show us how good she can be as an actress.

This film was delayed to spend time on special effects and I must say it was money and time well spent! The atmosphere this thing gives out was truly spectaular and I was holding on to my chair because I was afraid of heights! IMAX will be glorious if I'm pussing out over a 21" monitor in my room. (Yes, my room people, we don't get budgets on this site).

Check out the trailer and the poster below for Gravity opening in theaters October 4th

Amazing trailer after jump

They are now going to complete what they say is the final chapter of their stories together with a film called "The World's End". It looks hilarious and will likely be just that.

Things go unexpectedly bad. scariness and hilarity are sure to come from that scenario. Just watch it and see for yourself.

Luke Evans Cast in The Crow Reboot!

Ok folks after months and I mean a whole lot of months of speculation and rumors on who will be portraying the unlucky Eric Draven in The Crow reboot has finally been cast! Luke Evans will fill the leather and makeup of The Crow. I will say this is actually a pretty great actor to take the role.

This reboot had a lot problems getting started with nobody getting locked down for the role. It was actually getting a big boost with having art of A-lister Bradley Cooper drawn in the role, this would likely have caused some problems with the die hard fans. It would make this film a little too mainstream and some films aren't meant for that. (this isn't one). That fell through, so we got rumors that X-Men star James McAvoy was in the running. While good idea, it wasn't meant to be. Then came my favorite choice of them all. Tom Hiddleston came into the mix with reports saying he wants to be it so bad. Well that was just internet blowing everything out of portion over a single meeting. You probably think I'm done listing off but your wrong. Last before casting was out there rumors of True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard, but those never became more than just that. So after I just explained to you the last year or so in rumors, you can see how hard it is in Hollywood.
