The Russo Brothers Talk ‘Avengers: Endgame’, Stan Lee, Lasting Stakes and More [Spoiler-Free Interview]

A few weeks back, I sat down with the Joe and Anthony Russo, the brother filmmaker team behind Captain America: Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and the upcoming conclusion to the Infinity Saga, Avengers: Endgame. Unlike the usual Hollywood junket, we were not shown the movie. And the directing duo would not entertain any questions about plot, so this interview is completely spoiler-free. In my conversation with the Russo Brothers, we discuss Stan Lee‘s final M...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ and the summer movies you’ll want to see

As we all know, “Avengers: Endgame” will be the biggest film of the summer/year/all-time-and-space, and this culmination of all things Marvel Superhero will influence movies we see for a long time to come. However, while it is kicking off Hollywood’s most lucrative season and everyone will be talking about it, “Endgame” won’t be the only tone-setter for film summer 2019. Sure, there’ll be more costumed crusaders before Labor Day. There’s the Disney-absorbed Fox Studios’ last X-Men adventures, “D...

Why Does MCU Phase Three End with ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ and Not ‘Avengers: Endgame’?

It’s been said in the past that Phase Three of the MCU would conclude not with the epic Avengers: Endgame, but rather Spider-Man: Far From Home. If there was any lingering doubt about this claim, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige sealed the deal recently, confirming that Far From Home would indeed bring Phase Three to an end. But why? Wouldn’t ending things with Endgame make more sense? It has end in its title, after all. Just what determines the end of a “Phase” in the MCU? During a recent Sh...

UltraViolet, for Digital Movies, Is Done

UltraViolet, launched in 2011 as a movie studio alternative to iTunes’ growing dominance of digital video, is ending. (The first studio to use it was Warner.) The service, which was planned to allow you to aggregate digital copies of TV shows and movies and watch on a variety of devices, has been generally replaced by Movies Anywhere (assuming you’re in the US), which has the benefit of including Disney (who originally launched it) and working across more services, including iTunes.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, a New Mickey Mouse-Themed Attraction, Officially Coming to Disneyland

During the 2017 D23 Expo, we learned that Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, the first-ever Mickey Mouse-themed ride-through theme park attraction, was coming to Walt Disney World.

‘Rest Stop’ Movie, Based on a Stephen King Story, Will Be Directed by Alex Ross Perry

Her Smell director Alex Ross Perry wants in on the ongoing Stephen King adaptation boom. The filmmaker will write and direct Rest Stop, based on a King story of the same name. King’s tale follows a mystery writer who intervenes in an act of domestic violence unfolding at a rest stop. The story is very brief, and even a bit anticlimactic, so you can expect Perry to take some liberties with his adaptation. Alex Ross Perry has had a bit of an odd career, jumping from under-the-radar indie title...

Jon Favreau is proving to be one of the foremost filmmakers when it comes to testing game-changing technology, from his dazzling visual effects work in The Jungle Book, to the audacious CGI scale of the upcoming The Lion King. And The Mandalorian, for which Favreau acts as showrunner and executive producer, is no exception. Favreau may have been touting the upcoming Disney+ show’s use of practical effects that pay homage to the techniques used in the original Star Wars films, but The Mandaloria...

Mickey’s Halloween Party Retreats to California Adventure to Get Away From Star Wars

Here’s one for all you theme park fans out there: Mickey’s Halloween Party, Disney’s spooky-but-family-friendly alternative to scarier events like Halloween Horror Nights, isn’t happening this year. Instead, a new Halloween-themed event is kicking off and being shifted over to Disney California Adventure for the first time in a decade. The reason? Crowd sizes during the first year of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge are expected to be too big to handle in the same park. Read more about the change below...

Star Wars Celebration is a Reminder That Fandom is Far Healthier, and Far More Positive, Than the Internet Would Lead You to Believe

If you’re into the famous space opera franchise that is Star Wars, you have probably heard of the Star Wars Celebration fan gathering. Whether you had the time and money to attend is another question. But anyhow, I was at a place in my life where I could fly over to Chicago, Illinois for the 2019 edition. I am overall a loner when it comes to any convention or comic con experience. I like meeting up with fans, some of whom I have met online and podcasted with, and I haven gotten to know my c...
