new batmobile

Ah! The new Batmobile! It has guns! And tires! And it’s sleek like a dolphin riding a motorcycle or… a Lamborghini wearing a cape! Okay, I’m not making any sense.

I’m just really excited about this sneak peak video from JoBlo Movie Trailers that gives us a closer look at the new Batmobile from the upcoming Batman v Superman flick.

Check it out after the break…

A Disney cruise ship called the Disney Dream has a new play area that’s designed to look like the interior of the Millennium Falcon. The play area, which members of Disney’s Oceaneer Club can access (ages 3-12), allows guests to pretend that they’re actually everyone’s favorite scruffy smuggler. From the press release:

Kids will be transported to a far away galaxy at Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, a Force-filled play area inspired by the spacecraft from the legendary saga. Upon entering the spaceship, younglings will join the Rebel Alliance in the epic battle of good versus evil by assisting with the navigation of this powerful space vehicle. Sitting in the cockpit, children can pilot this super-cool spaceship through hyperspace and trigger lightspeed jumps to different locations around the galaxy.

But the upgrades don’t stop there. The Disney Dream will also add the Jedi Training Academy experience, which includes Star Wars-themed games, crafts and activities.

The new features are expected to debut after the Disney Dream undergoes dry dock Oct. 4-24, 2015, in Freeport, Bahamas.

spiderman animated

Sony has announced that Spider-Man will hit theaters in animated form in 2018 with Phil Miller and Chris Lord (The LEGO Movie) at the helm.

As you probably know, Spider-Man’s next film appearance will be for Marvel in Captain America: Civil War which drops in May of 2016. However, the press release below notes that the animated movie will “exist independently” of the live-action projects.

On July 20, 2018, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller the directors of The Lego Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and 21 and 22 Jump Street, are taking Spider-Man back to his graphic roots with the first-of-its-kind animated Spider-Man feature, it was announced today at CinemaCon by Tom Rothman, chairman of the Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group. The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.

Lord & Miller are masterminding the project, writing the treatment and producing the film.

As previously announced, Spider-Man will next appear in a live-action Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, a live-action film being produced by Kevin Feige at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. The animated film from Lord & Miller, dated July 20, 2018, has Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Pascal also serving as producers.

R2ME248235

The R2-ME2 project is a fantastic look at what happens when talented artists are officially encouraged to kitbash a figure. In this case, a blank prototype of the Sideshow Collectibles Deluxe R2-D2 Sixth Scale Figure. Over 90 artists friends and fans participated, and the results were on display at Star Wars Celebration. I had a chance to check them out and it’s really amazing to see what they came up with.

Head after the break to see more examples.

little prince trailer

A trailer for the animated film version of The Little Prince was released last December and it looked gorgeous. Unfortunately, it was only available in French so a little of the film was lost to those of us who don’t speak the language. Now they’ve released an English version with new footage and it’ll make you even more excited to see the movie.

Seriously, it looks better than anything Pixar has produced in quite a while.

See the trailer after the break.

Artist Klaus Enrigue has recreated Darth Vader’s helmet with a unique medium. The mask is covered with 150 artfully arranged insects including tarantulas, scorpions, and butterflies sourced from around the world. It took nearly 300 hours to put it all together and he sees as a metaphor for Vader. He says the butterflies represent metamorphosis and how Vader changes throughout the films.

star destroyer

That crashed Imperial Star Destroyer sticking up out of the sand in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer may be a little worse for wear, but that hasn’t stopped several people from trying to sell it on Craigslist. One listing reads:

batman-vs-superman

YouTuber Bobby Burns recreated the trailer for Batman V. Superman using old footage from the days of Adam West and Christopher Reeve. The audio from the actual trailer is spliced into classic scenes from the old Superman movies and it fits the dark tone really well. Then in comes goofy Batman and Robin prancing around and I just lost it.

Watch the funny and clever parody after the break.
