Let's take a moment to appreciate the geautiful films that Studio Ghibli has brought its fans.

Enjoy!" Enjoy!

Get a first look at Brenton Thwaites as Robin for the upcoming Teen Titans inspired show Titans.

Image
DC Entertainment has just surprised fans with a first look image of actor Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) as Robin for the upcoming Teen Titans inspired show "Titans". The image show off Thwaites in the Robin suit and he looks great. Thwaites clearly has the right look and the look of the costume, which was designed by costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, looks fantastic. I am excited to see the full suit but I love the look they are going for and hope the rest of the team will follow suit.


Show synopsis:
"Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson (Thwaites) emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and others." Besides the above mention actors/characters, the show will also feature Minka Kelly as Dove, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, and Alan Ritchson as Hawk.

Mark Hamill speaks out about the emotional return to the Millennium Falcon on set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Image
Fans went crazy when a recent trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi showed Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) walking into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. It's been years since we have seen Luke aboard the iconic ship and it brought back some fond memories and emotions. However, it wasn't only fans experiencing this. It was an emotional moment for Mark Hamill as well.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Hamill recalled what it was like being back on the YT-1300 Corellian frieghter, aka the Melinnium Falcon.
"“I’m telling you, I didn’t expect to have the reaction I had. I was there with my family, with [my children] Nathan and Griffin and Chelsea and my wife Marilou, and [Lucasfilm] asked if the documentary crew could be there when I came back on the Millennium Falcon. I mean, this was not on the shooting day. I was just street clothes and going to visit that set. And I said, ‘Sure.’”" Speaking about what it was like to return to the Falcon, he ststaed;
"“It was so…

Disney casts Chinese actress Liu Yifei, aka Crystal Liu, as the lead in the live action Mulan.

Image
Disney has just announced that they have cast their female lead in the upcoming live action film adaptation of Mulan. Tapped for the role is Chinese actress Liu Yifei, also known as Crystal Li. After traveling around the world and auditioning almost 1,000 applicants, Disney feels that they have landed the perfect actress. Above all they were looking for someone with "credible martial arts skills, the ability to speak English and the most ineffable requirement of all: star quality."

Speaking about the casting, The Hollywood Reporter stated;
"In Liu, Disney found the complete package. Nicknamed "Fairy Sister" by the Chinese public for her pure and innocent looks and image, she has been one of the country's most popular actresses of the current generation since breaking out with a series of hit television dramas in the mid-2000s, while she was still a teenager enrolled in the Beijing Film Academy. She is fluent in English, having lived in Queens, N.Y., for p…

A new photo of Star Wars: The Last Jedi's Supreme Leader Snoke is released with some new character details.

Image
Actor Andy Serkis was talking to Empire Magazine and revealed some new information about The First Order's Supreme Leader Snoke. The information revealed debunks a popular fan theory.

**Possible Spoilers Ahead**

According to Serkis, one fan theory about Snoke is completely off the mark. Serkis stated in an interview that Snoke is not a Sith Lord.
""Snoke is bloody dark; way darker than Palpatine. He’s riddled with this osteoporosis so his body's twisted, like a corkscrew. He's incredibly damaged, so there's a bizarre vulnerability about him. Beneath that vulnerability, though, is this intense hatred."  "He’s definitely not a Sith, but he’s certainly at the darker end of the Force. Without giving too much away, that begins to unfold a little in this one." This is pretty interesting information. Thanks to shows like Star Wars: The Clone Wars we know there are other Force wielding groups out there besides the Jedi and the Sith. Could Snoke be alig…

First trailer for Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is released and will blow fans away!

Image
WOW! The much anticipated trailer for Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War has been released an it is incredible! This first trailer is different than the one shown at San Diego Comic Con and in my opinion may be even better.

Avengers: Infinity War is what everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to. Starting way back with Iron Man in 2008 leading all the way through to the (not yet released) Black Panther. The film will star the villain Thanos (Josh Brolin) as he tries to complete the Infinity Gauntlet with the various Infinity Stones to take over the galaxy. Stepping up to stop him is every hero we have seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is going to be absolutely amazing.

The trailer does a great job at showing off our heroes in new costumes, dangerous action sequences, and for some, what may be life threatening situations. Watch the trailer below and be sure to let me know what you think in the comments. Enjoy!



Avengers: Infinity War will be in…

First poster for Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is revealed.

Image
After actor Tom Holland "accidentally" revealed it, Marvel has released the first poster for the upcoming film Avengers: Infinity War.

The poster is the Avengers logo "A" similar to the posters for Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron except this poster has a fresh coat of paint giving it some nice colors. Really, there's nothing too special here but it's cool to see the advertising coming out for the film.


What are your thoughts on this first poster?

Avengers: Infinity War will be in theaters on May 4, 2018.

Brand new image from Star Wars: The Last Jedi shows an advancing battalion of First Order Snowtroopers.

Image
Empire Magazine has released a really cool new photo for Star Wars: The Last Jedi that features an oncoming battalion of First Order Snowtroopers. At the moment, there is no information about this photo and what is actually happening in it but it is definitely a really cool shot.

"Evoking echoes of The Empire Strikes Back's Hoth troopers, the snowtroopers boast personal environment suits with insulated armour and glare-reducing slit visors"

What do you think of the First Order Snowtroopers? Do you like their look better than the original Snowtroopers?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters on December 15, 2018.

Go behind the scenes of Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok with Weta Workshop and see how the film's costumes were created.

Image
Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok was a smash hit with fans all over the world. Now fans have the opportunity to go behind the scenes with Weta Workshop to find out how the costumes and armor were made for the various character in the film. Weta Workshop always does stunning work so when it was announced that they would be working on this project there was no doubt that the film would be visually beautiful.  The care for details that Weta puts into their work knows no bounds and this behind the scenes video will give fans a glimpse of that. One thing I know many fans appreciated, myself included, was the addition of vibrant colors that was a nod to the amazing comic art of Jack Kirby.
"The latest film in the Marvel universe has Kiwi blood running through its veins! New Zealand's Weta Workshop manufactured hyper-stylised armour and weapons for Thor: Ragnarok.  This may be our most colourful job yet. Our costume and prop crews made super cool helmets for Thor and Hulk, the colourful…

Joe Manganiello shares the first official photo of his character Deathstroke from Justice League.

Image
One of the biggest, and most pleasant, surprises of the Justice League film came in the form of a post credit cameo by actor Joe Manganiello. Manganiello shocked audiences when he appeared on screen looking perfect as the villain Deathstroke.

Joe Manganiello was originally tied to the character Deathstroke as the villain for the solo Batman film and then that was all changed when Warner Bros. announced that they were giving the character his own solo film as well.

I think they completely nailed the character and his costume. I cannot wait to see more of him.


Justice League is in theaters now.
