Zootopia Shakira Try Everything

It’s New Year’s Eve, but that isn’t stopping the news cycle from spinning. And for the Disney marketing team, they are going to change the way we see the day before we ring in the new year with a trailer from Zootopia to help celebrate “Zoo Year’s Eve.”

The studio has released a brand new trailer for the film, unlike the trailer that masqueraded as a clip of the two leads at the DMV – which actually worked if you think about it – this trailer is a mash up of new scenes, complimented with a brand new song “Try Everything,” written by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate and performed by Grammy winner Shakira. Check out the new trailer and hear the song below.

Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor Talk Doctor Strange

Captain America: Civil War may be the opening chapter of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but a lot of our attention is turned to Doctor Strange. The movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, which touts quite a supporting cast that consists of Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer, Trainwreck), Rachel McAdams (Spotlight, About Time), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave, The Martian), and Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man, Steve Jobs).

So far we’ve seen images, learned about the motivation behind Mads Mikkelsen‘s villain, and Doctor Strange’s powers. Now Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is talking a little bit more about the Sorcerer Supreme’s allies and possible foes. More on the story below.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

La La Land will be Damien Chazelle‘s follow-up to his Academy Award winning drumming drama Whiplash. But rather than be just another film about the gritty and sometimes demoralizing behind-the-scenes look at competitive jazz band, Chazelle’s upcoming film might have a lighter fare, as it will be a musical set in modern-day Los Angeles. It will star Crazy Stupid Love duo Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. The two have quite the on screen chemistry, having also appeared together in the crime drama Gangster Squad.

The film marks the third time that they’re paired together in a film. And now we are getting our first look at the two dancing against an L.A. backdrop as the sun sets. Check out the first image below.

Could An Infinity Stone Appear In ‘Doctor Strange’?

Doctor Strange header image

Phase Three of the MCU will have a total of 11 films, and with these films culminating with the epic two-part Avengers: Infinity War there are still two more Infinity Stones that need to be discovered. Four have already made an appearance in the last two phases (the Space Stone, Mind Stone, Power Stone, and the Reality Stone), which leaves the Time Stone and Soul Stone – the power of these stones are pretty explanatory.

It’s not clear when the final two stones could appear, but as we have seen in the past, these stones have been found within a scepter, a cube, a vicious liquid, and an orb. So where the final two gems could be found is still a mystery. But based on what Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said, the next Infinity Stone could appear in Doctor Strange. And it will be in the form of a tool that is of great importance to the title character. More on this story below.

George Lucas Talks Selling ‘Star Wars,’ ‘The Force Awakens,’ Plans To Make Original Films

George Lucas, Goofy, and Mickey Mouse

Back in 2012, George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion dollars, most of which went directly to educational charity. Since then the Mouse House has released Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is on track to beat Avatar for the title of highest grossing box office film of all time. But while we wait for that news to happen. With the film breaking all sorts of records and being recognized for being one of the best Star Wars films since A New Hope – even though some have criticized that The Force Awakens is a retread on that story – there are some people who are unhappy with what the franchise has become, and that person is none other than Lucas himself.

After the jump, you will find out why he is so unhappy with the film (despite saying that he was pleased with it after watching an early preview), why Hollywood has become so reliant on franchises, and his plans to make original films in the future.

Speedrunners Beat ‘Fallout 3’ In 15 Mins, ‘New Vegas’ In 20 Mins (Videos)

Fallout: New Vegas

The Fallout speedrunners competition is going strong. Recently a player who goes by Kungkobra beat Fallout: New Vegas in a record 21:02, which was then beaten a day later by player Swags_The_Dog with a 20:54 run. Another day later Kungkobra reclaimed the record with a 20:47 run, which is currently the record. Though that could change at any time the way things are going.

Back in July of 2014 we saw someone beat Fallout 3 in a little under 24 minutes, which was then pretty quickly beaten by someone who pulled off a run in a little over 23 minutes. While this post was originally just to share the crazy New Vegas run, I discovered that these Fallout 3 runs don’t even get you in the top 25 anymore. In fact, a player called Petite_Miku just broke the record for that game again a couple of days ago with a ridiculous 15-minute run.

You can check out the speedrunners’ record-breaking videos for Fallout 3 and New Vegas below.

‘Black Panther’s Themes and Connection To ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Black Panther

Like most of the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are either loose or strong links to all the films no matter if they are based on Earth, Asgard, or far away galaxies. Whether these connections come in the form of Macguffins or just subtle nods, they are a representation of how expansive the MCU is as a whole. And like most of these films, they are some sort of genre. Iron Man was a buddy cop film, Captain America is a political thriller, Thor a fantastical film, Ant-Man being heists, and Guardians of the Galaxy a space opera.

It’s not clear what we will see in Phase 3 of the MCU, but all of the films will culminate with the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. Phase 3 will also introduce new characters like Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), who will make his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War before starring in his own titular film.

But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is now talking a little bit about what Black Panther will be, and how it links to Avengers: Infinity War. More on the story below.

Baadasssss’ Top 10 Albums Of 2015

The Simpsons - Albums of 2015

I’ve been writing for Geeks of Doom since April 2008. In that time I have written about the occasional soundtrack release, but never before in my time or anywhere else have I attempted to write a list of the best new music I heard over the course of a year. Please bear with me, dear readers as I get into my picks for my Top 10 Albums of 2015.

Two years before I joined the Geeks writing staff, I was employed by my local Tower Records and Video. From the summer of 1999 to just a few days shy of Christmas 2006 when the nationwide chain shut down forever, I worked full time at Tower and loved almost every minute of my time there. Each day I was exposed to music from countless genres, and having that job deepened my appreciation of music I either dabbled in previously or was never exposed to at all. I was listening to a lot more rap, jazz, opera, bluegrass, gospel, and indie rock than ever before and developing a deeply emotional and intellectual appreciation for how each album was lovingly crafted and the unique history behind every song.

Anomalisa Featurettes

A pair of featurettes have been released for Anomalisa, the stop-motion animated drama from Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation) and Duke Johnson (Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole, Moral Orel).

The new videos are brief, running only a minute long each, and introduce the film’s two main characters, Michael (played by Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and The Theory of Everything star David Thewlis) and Lisa (played by The Hateful Eight and Fast Times at Ridgemont High star Jennifer Jason Leigh).

You can read more about the movie and watch the videos below.
