Another Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, this time in LEGO

Some people just have a lot of time in their hands. Or lots of creativity. And definitely lots and lots of LEGO pieces. The group of "quirky artists" at Brotherhood Workshop probably qualify for all those. Combining months of hard work, scene by scene analysis, and a whole load of LEGO, the groups was able to recreate one of the earliest trailers for Avengers: Age of Ultron. They have just released their own LEGO stylized trailer, and just in time to welcome the premiere of the non-LEGO film this week.

Transformers 5 movie confirmed, expected for 2017

Yesterday it was confirmed that a fifth Transformers movie will be produced, expanding the franchise yet again with what will hopefully be a reversal of the progressively disappointing film series. The confirmation was given during a Hasbro earnings call yesterday during which the company’s CEO Brian Goldner said the movie was expected to hit theaters in 2017. The movie itself hasn’t yet begun production — in fact, there’s not even yet a story in place, though it has been teased that we could end up seeing a storyline from any part of the Transformers’ history.

Netflix confirmed in order for ‘Full House’ spinoff

Earlier this month, an anonymous source surfaced saying Netflix was toying with a spinoff of the 90s sitcom Full House, and that if the rumored series came to fruition it would be called Fuller House. The sources had made it sound like the reboot was a near-deal, and now a few weeks later it has all been proven true with an official announcement: Netflix is bringing back Full House in 2016, and some of the original cast members will be coming with it.

Jurassic World full trailer released: watch this madness

Jurassic World full trailer released: watch this madness

The next Jurassic Park movie - Jurassic World - is going to be truly nuts. More nuts than Jurassic Park III - and that was completely nuts. What you're about to see is the first full-length "global" trailer for the film with full-on plot details and more Star Lord - I mean "Owen Grady" than you can handle.

That's for real.

Pantone names a new color after Dispecable Me’s Minions

You know a pop culture thing is a BIG thing when even serious business institutions get into it as well.

This is quite big when you consider that Pantone has not named any new color since 2012, and the first one it does it names after fictional characters.

Except, it won't be your regular Fantastic Four thing. Well, the Thing is there and the rest of the cast, but things will be slightly different.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ official teaser trailer goes live

‘Batman vs. Superman’ official teaser trailer goes live

Earlier this week Zack Snyder confirmed that the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer would be launching soon, but someone else trumped his claim and leaked the trailer even sooner. It had hard-coded foreign language subtitles and was in exceptionally poor quality, and Warner Bros. moved to get the video pulled down quickly. As with all things on the Internet, though, a handful of copies would appear every time a copy was pulled, and so the studio did what many before it have elected to do: officially released the trailer sooner than it had originally planned.
