‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Chracter Names Revealed On Trading Cards

star-wars-banner

Normally we’d learn about characters through the source material, a plot synopsis, or straight from the cast or crew. But given that everyone is so tight-lipped about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, trying to get information like names of the characters is next to impossible. We already know that the film is canon, and will see the return of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, and more iconic starships. Plus the Sith. But since the trailer dropped a few weeks back, we don’t know who John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, or Oscar Issac is playing. We also don’t now who the Sith with the broadsword is – maybe it is Adam Driver. And we cannot just keep calling the rolling droid a soccer ball.

Now in a very cool move, EW has revealed the names of the characters seen in the trailer on trading cards. Okay, they aren’t actually trading cards, however, these images resemble the trading cards of yesteryear, and even us the Star Wars designs. Hit the jump to see them all. [Read more…]

Inside Out recently added Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane as the parents of Riley, who is going through the phases of growing up. The new trailer provides brand new footage, gives us a better look into the world of being inside one’s mind. [Read more…]

starwars7

This is pretty much the Black Friday for moviegoers. The trailer debut for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has just been announced. Sources say it will be revealed in nine theaters, and it will be played before every movie shown. We don’t know exactly when it will be made available online. It’s a great movie marketing strategy, since the Friday after Thanksgiving is generally the busiest for various business, including movie theaters. Based on the information released, the nine theaters that will show this are exclusively Regal Edwards Theaters. Now there is a chance that it could expand to a few more, but for now, take the list of locations after the jump as the only theaters you will be able to see the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

‘Big Hero 6′ Review: Dazzling Fun That Fuses Disney’s Magic With Marvelous Science

Big Hero 6

Since Disney acquired Marvel Comics back in 2009, the metaphorical door of what the studio could come up with using the properties from the famed comic book house was endless. But instead of going the obvious route by having an animated adaption of an A-list title like Avengers or whatever property they had the rights to, director Don Hall went with a lesser known title called Big Hero 6. We could have gotten a straight up adaptation of the comic book itself, but we get something else. We get something that we have all be waiting for in these kinds of superhero films, a refreshing take that is not only grounded, but good wholesome entertainment.

Big Hero 6 mixes Disney’s gorgeous animation with Marvel’s sense of comic book action well, and Hall and co-director Chris Williams even throw in a few curve balls that changes the traditional storytelling seen in animated films, much like how Frozen changed the way we see characters and themes. The film swings for the fences, and hopefully it will inspire some of the younger audience members to see science in a new light. Hit the jump for the full review. [Read more…]

“The Force Awakens” In ‘Star Wars Episode VII’

starwars7Briefly: When Star Wars Episode VII was announced, fans of the legendary saga wondered what the film’s subtitle would be. Being the secretive filmmaker that he is, J.J. Abrams went through 8 months of principal photography without revealing anything about the movie, not even a title. Sure Abrams did the Force for Change teasers, showing off the set. There was even the little competition between Star Wars and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now that principal photography has officially ended, the official Star Wars Twitter posted an announcement of the end of filming along with a brand new title treatment. Star Wars: Episode VII is officially titled: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It is unclear whether this new trilogy will completely abandon the numerical ‘Episode’ titles, hopefully not. However, it also makes sense that they would abandon that style as the original trilogy and prequels were an epic. This new trilogy, while it does continue the story, exists outside of that original saga.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18th, 2015!

‘Planes: Fire And Rescue’ DVD/Blu-ray Review

planes fire and rescue dvd blu-ray review

Disney’s Planes franchise (yes it is a franchise) is one of the most underrated franchises in the studio’s library. Even though the film shares the same universe as Cars, Planes didn’t exactly fit into Pixar’s mold, but still found a home over at Disney’s smaller studio DisneyToons. The first Planes was funny and heartfelt, and while it does have some familiar talent, it doesn’t have the A-List talent we are accustomed to seeing. So Planes is continuing being its own brand of fun by having a sequel, Planes: Fire and Rescue, which was a relative hit at the box office. Now that the DVD/Blu-ray is scheduled for a November 4 release, we are taking a look at whether or not it is worthy of being on your home entertainment shelf. Hit the jump to see if it does.
