THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS

You know it’s Christmas when you start to hear that all-too-familiar Nutcracker theme. And since it’s never too early for Christmas, Disney is giving us a peek at what’s under their tree in the form of a brand new trailer for The Nutcracker and The Four Realms. The film is a big-budget retelling of the classic tale of a girl who stumbles upon a magical world of sugar plum fairies, toy soldiers, mice, and fantasy. What sort of adventure waits for Clara (Mackenzie Foy) when she enters this world and can she save it from the evil Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren)? Let’s unlock the key and see.

Check out the latest trailer as well as the new poster and images here below.

Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Title Card

It’s the time of the season, and what better way to celebrate that time than to have images promoting a Christmas movie. Of course, there are many remakes and reboots of classic Christmas movies. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Disney has released the first images for a new vision of The Nutcracker. Disney’s take will be called The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Directed by Lasse Hallström, the film will be based on an adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 German fairy tale, which was turned into a ballet by Tchaikovsky.

Now we are getting a first look at the film, which is due to hit theaters late next year. Check out the first two images here below.

Starring Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, Toby Jones, Dominic Cooper, Jenna Louise-Coleman

Originally Released: July 19, 2011

What better way for geeks to celebrate this national holiday than to kick back with a few cold ones and watch the personification of the USA in the Marvel Universe: Captain America: The First Avenger.

And honestly, good ol’ Cap is more important in Marvel than you think. Sure, he leads The Avengers; but Marvel’s most popular heroes, such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Deadpool, and now Iron Man thanks to Robert Downey Jr., tend to eclipse the important responsibility Captain America has played to the evolution of the Marvel Universe.

Captain America is the personification, not of the United States, but instead for which it stands. I’m not talking about liberty or justice or freedom or patriotism. I’m speaking about people – it’s the people that make this nation so special. And Cap personifies that element, that deep down, we all have the potential to be good people; and that it is not our abilities that make us who we are, but the choices we make.

‘Empire Strikes Back’ Screen Test From 1978 Reveals Boba Fett’s Original All-White Costume

Boba Fett

If you’re a die hard devotee of all things pertaining to Star Wars then it might be common knowledge to you that when the saga’s iconic bounty hunting scumbag Boba Fett was first introduced (in live-action form) in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back, his stylish multi-colored armor was originally intended to be an all-white ensemble, as envisioned by conceptual artist Joe Johnston.

The white variant of the costume was never used, but in 1978 prior to the commencement of principal photography on Empire, Johnston’s original design was briefly brought to life in a rare black and white screen test. You can watch a five-minute video excerpt from that test and see some images here below.

Han Solo and Boba Fett

Yesterday we reported that Disney and Lucasfilm were ramping up their long-term grand plans for Star Wars with the announcement that they would be developing a series of movies set apart from Episode VII and on that would focus on individual characters from the Star Wars universe, including a possible Yoda movie.

Entertainment Weekly today broke an exclusive addendum to that revelation with the news that both Han Solo, the roguish but lovable space smuggler that helped make Harrison Ford a star in the original Star Wars movies, and Boba Fett, the masked intergalactic bounty hunter who had little screen time in the original trilogy but has since become a huge fan favorite character, might also be headlining their own standalone movies.

Marvel’s Director Shortlist for ‘Captain America’ Sequel Revealed, Joe Johnston Not On There

With The Avengers set for release a little over a month from now Marvel Studios has good reason to celebrate. A decade ago the idea of getting Earth’s mightiest heroes together in one movie was laughable given that the film rights to the various characters were owned by different Hollywood studios who weren’t exactly receptive to the idea of a collaboration that would force them to share the potential wealth with their Tinseltown rivals. It wasn’t until Marvel formed their own movie division and started financing blockbusters like Iron Man and Thor that the company could finally take control of their celluloid destiny.

Jurassic Park Trilogy
DVD | Blu-Ray | Blu-ray Gift Set
Directed by Steven Spielberg, Joe Johnston
Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Pete Postlethwaite
Universal Studios Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 25, 2011

When attempting to look critically at a piece of cinema like the Jurassic Park franchise, particularly the feature that started it off, a person from this writer’s generation must not only judge the features on singular scales of quality, but must also get past one huge roadblock: nostalgia.

I don’t know how many people who will read this are in a similar boat, but the Jurassic Park franchise is one of the first true-blue cinematic experience of this generation. Coming out in 1993, Jurassic Park played as the first real memorable cinematic experience for this generation, imprinting an eye of grandeur and spectacle on a group of people, so much so that the repercussions are still being felt today. Hell, it’s also a genuinely fantastic feature film.
