Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ May Resume Production Later This Month in Australia

While many areas of the United States are dealing with a severe rise in COVID-19 cases, much of the rest of the world has squashed the spread of the coronavirus pandemic rather successfully. As they’ve reopened businesses, people around the world have been responsible about wearing masks and social distancing, and that means film and TV production is in the process of starting again. While Disney already has Avatar 2 back to work in New Zealand, Marvel Studios is looking to turn on the Hollywoo...

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: Here’s the Drax Joke Disney Asked James Gunn to Cut

Disney has a reputation for being strict with its family-friendly image, but the company has given more free rein to the studios under its banner than you might assume. While Marvel Studios films often have to abide by a certain formula (and unfortunately, a certain aesthetic), a few filmmakers have been allowed relative creative freedom. One of those directors is James Gunn, whose Guardian of the Galaxy films all bear his distinct directorial signature. But even Gunn has to abide by Disney sta...

Cool Stuff: Mysterio’s Iron Man Illusion from ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Is Now a Haunting Statue

One of the most memorable and visually arresting sequences from Spider-Man: Far From Home was the nightmare illusion sequence that Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) uses to disorient the webslinger. Easily the most haunting image from the tricky villain’s manufactured hallucinations is using a zombified Iron Man to scare the hell out of Peter Parker, who has been having a hard time dealing with the death of Tony Stark. Now you can bring the nightmarish version of Iron Man to your collectible shelf, th...

Cool Stuff: ‘Unbreakable’, ‘Split’, and ‘Glass’ Get a Deluxe Vinyl Soundtrack Box Set from Waxwork Records

When Split arrived in 2016, audiences were blown away by one of M.Night Shyamalan‘s biggest surprise endings yet.

Jackson. Both of the movies came to a head last year in the questionable Glass, concluding what is known as the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. And now you can get the soundtracks to...

Jason Sudeikis Kinda Forgot About Punching Baby Yoda in ‘The Mandalorian’

In the first season finale of the Star Wars series The Mandalorian on Disney+, the asset officially referred to as “The Child” and lovingly referred to as Baby Yoda was kidnapped by Imperial Scout Troopers. The little guy is being held in a satchel, and he keeps wiggling around inside of it, trying to get out. So one of the Scout Troopers just punches the bag, and fans were not having it. One of the Scout Troopers was portrayed by Jason Sudeikis, and he was surprised to find himself trending on...

‘Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2’ Added Even More Pressure to Creating a Hit Disney Sequel

Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2, a six-part documentary series about the final year of production on the hit animated sequel, arrives today on Disney+. As you can read in our review, the series provides one of the most in-depth looks behind the scenes of making a feature length animated movie. That means cameras were following everyone during some of the most intimate, vulnerable moments that aren’t typically seen by the general public. Naturally, that added even more pressure on top of what ...

Disney’s ‘Splash Mountain’ Will be Completely Re-Imagined and Re-Themed Around ‘The Princess and the Frog’

Splash Mountain, one of the most iconic and beloved of all Disney theme park attractions, will soon be “completely re-imagined.” But this isn’t just an ordinary plus-up. The log flume water ride, while lauded for its brilliant storytelling and wild but family-friendly thrills, has roots buried deep within the 1946 Disney film Song of the South, a movie so problematic that the company has chosen to bury it entirely and never make it available on modern home video formats or streaming. As for the...

Their latest attempt at a comeback comes on Disney+ with a new series called Muppets Now.

‘Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2’ Digs Deep into the Challenges of Making Disney Magic

Whenever a new movie comes out, there are featurettes that show us generic footage of the cast and crew in production, whether it’s on-location or somewhere on the studio backlot. There are interviews providing vague information about the story and characters along with some sneak peeks of the movie we’ve yet to see. Even the traditional special features included on home video releases of movies don’t often dig much deeper than that. But Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2, a new documentary seri...

Mark Hamill Confirms Extra Roles in All ‘Star Wars’ Movies Except the Prequels

Mark Hamill is best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga, but he’s also a renowned voice actor.
