Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is quickly showing how much of a box office powerhouse it has become since it opened 12 days ago. After it debuted to a very impressive $1.2 billion worldwide, the film continued its dominance at the theaters, overshadowing the likes of newcomers like Long Shot, The Intruder, and Uglydolls. Not only that, but it’s reached $2 billion faster than any other movie; only four other films have made that rare accomplishment. Additionally, it has eclipsed James Cameron’s Titanic box office totals. More on the report here below.

Toy Story 4

Earlier this month, I got the very rare opportunity to join a select group of journalists to travel to Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, CA, where we got a sneak preview of Toy Story 4. The fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise sees Woody and Buzz go in a new direction by tapping into new themes that were never explored in any of the previous films. This is what helps keep the franchise fresh and new.

I’ve already shown you how technology has changed since the first Toy Story came out, but now it is time to hear from a roundtable interview we had with director Josh Cooley and producer Mark Nielsen about the upcoming film, the daunting task of revisiting a beloved franchise after the third is considered perfect, bringing Bo Peep back, and more. Check out what they had to say below.

TOY STORY 4

Pixar Animation Studios has come a long way from where they first started out releasing commercials for top brands names. After the release of Toy Story in 1995, they became the premiere animation studio and are now recognized all over the globe for creating beautifully animated films that are rich in color and story. Though they pride themselves in releasing original stories, they have also released prequels and sequels to some fan-favorite films. And now they will be releasing Toy Story 4. The film is the 21st feature released by Pixar, and sees Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), and the rest of the gang going on a new adventure and reuniting with an old friend, Bo Peep (Anne Potts).

Geeks of Doom and a select number of journalists were flown all the way to Emeryville, California to visit the Pixar campus and get a behind-the-scenes look at the film. We will have extensive coverage on Toy Story 4 and our visit to Pixar Animation Studios in the coming weeks. So be sure to stay tuned. But we will first start off with how far Pixar’s technology has come since they first started out in 1995. So let’s take a look at how the technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. Check it out below.

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame featured so many memorable comic book movie moments that made audiences go through a roller coaster ride of emotions. Though there were big action spectacles and very sad goodbyes, the epic finale also had some very funny moments marked by snarky insults and name-calling, most of which came from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper).

These were mostly observational insults that targeted another person’s intelligence or body figure. But it was all in good fun, and to lighten the mood. So check out some of our favorites from Avengers: Endgame, below.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Is Pure Box Office Gold, But Can It Pass ‘Avatar’

Avengers: Endgame

Disney released a tiny movie some of you may have heard about over the weekend. It’s called Avengers: Endgame. After 11 years and 21 films, it has come down to this one movie that simply smashed box office records. Having seen it four times already, I can tell you that it is one of the best movie-going experiences I have had in a very long time. Watching the press screening is one thing, but watching it with the general public is something else.

And it shows, as Avengers: Endgame was not only the number one film this weekend, taking in $350 million domestically, but also smashed a few other records in the process such as the biggest opening day and weekend, which were previously held by films like The Force Awakens and Avengers: Infinity War. But now the question is, can it pass Avatar? More on this report below.

Walt Disney Studios Logo

We’ve always expected that Disney would be making some major cuts to Fox since they acquired the entertainment assets back in March.

Among the first things to go were some employees. At the time, some 4,000 employees were to be affected by this merger, which also included Disney shutting down Fox 2000, a branch of Fox that released films like The Devil Wears Prada, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Hate U Give. Now Disney is moving on to other projects by cutting out even more titles. More on this below.

It wouldn’t be the least bit cliche to say that all good things must come to an end. For Marvel Studios, all roads that have been paved by the last 21 movies in the last 11 years have led up to Avengers: Endgame. What directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have done is truly indescribable. It’s a true gift to the fans who have been a part of this journey since 2008. To put it simply, it is the epic conclusion to an 11-year story arc.

Filled with a wide range of emotions from joy, sorrow, laughter, and excitement, Avengers: Endgame will surely go down as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. Check out my full review below.

‘Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker’ Director J.J. Abrams Is Fully Aware Of Those “Who Are Rey’s Parents” Questions

Rey (Daisy Ridley) in Star Wars: Episode IX

The matter of who Rey’s parents are has always been on Star Wars fans’ minds ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, revealed that she comes from nothing because her parents were “filthy junk traders” who sold her off for drinking money and that she comes from nothing. But it may not have been the definitive answer many were looking for. Many still want to believe that she has some sort of familial connection to a character within the Star Wars universe.

Some people have their theories. But it seems like we will get something more concrete in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. At least, that’s according to director J.J. Abrams. Check out what he had to say below.
