This week the LEGO Movie has been released with a bang - $69 million at the box office and the second-biggest February launch of all time. Now the folks behind the title song have been allowed to release their rather unique hand-made music video to the public. Here we're seeing "Everything is AWESOME!!!" in classic LEGO form, of course.
It's a dark time in the Game of Thrones universe Winter is still coming - everything (save the Red Wedding) - is still about to happen. If you're a follower of South Park, you know good and well that there's still some more waiting that has to be done, but fear not - HBO has graced us with a 14-minute feature which sheds some light on the next season of the show.
It would appear that the little creatures known as Rabbids - sourced from the Rayman video game series and readied for the public as their own series by Ubisoft - have secured themselves a full-length feature film deal with Sony Pictures. This film has Jean-Julien Baronnet, Executive Director, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of Production for Columbia Pictures, speaking up on the deal, letting it be known that Columbia will be working on the picture as well. This release comes after the collaborative effort between Ubisoft Motion Pictures, France Television, and Nickelodeon called "Rabbids Invasion", a television show out right this minute.
Supposing you've never been to Bonnaroo before, you might not know what it means to be part of "the Bonnaroo experience" - it's unique, to put it simply. As depicted briefly in the short film by the crew called Already Alive, Bonnaroo is an experience few forget (you'll see this video below, if you like). This week the folks at Xbox Wire have let it be known that Bonnaroo will be a live streaming event through Xbox One and Xbox 360 starting on February 19th (Wednesday) at 7PM EST - that's well before the actual concert series.
It would seem that the poster we saw back on the 30th - and subsequently were asked by Paramount to take down - may have been sitting right next to some brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys as well. What we're seeing today is a single image which depicts three of the Michael Bay film-headed mutants in all their tiny glory. Here we've got Raphael looking rather bulky, Donatello looking a bit more lean than in previous iterations, and Michelangelo keeping with the "coolest member of the team" theme through a retro grunge style.
As the premiere for Captain America's next film draws near, Marvel has just released the second trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This time a bit more screentime is given to the film's other major characters such as The Falcon as well as the film's titular antagonist, the Winter Soldier.
While we're still crossing our fingers for the release of the real-deal Hoverboard by the time 2015 rolls around, for now we'll have what's second best: a musical based on the Back to the Future film series. Here we're going to see a stage musical version of the first Back to the Future with Director Robert Zemeckis, book by Bob Gale and Jamie Lloyd (and Zemeckis), and a bunch of new music as well.
If the devil is in the details, then Infinity Ward has summoned more than their fair share of demons in the creation of the Fog map for the first DLC for the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. This expansion goes by the name Onslaught, and in the gameplay map called "Fog", players are invited to dip into an environment that's the video game embodiment the 2012 film The Cabin in the Woods. Not that it looks the same - it quite different visually - but the same idea is there: here we've got every woods-based horror movie all bound into one.
It would appear that the cast of Batman vs Superman is about to get a whole lot younger. In an announcement that suggests this push for the DC Comics-led universe of superheroes will be changing feet on a whole new level, the actor best known for his role as Mark Zuckerberg in the 2010 movie The Social Network will be inserted into the role of Lex Luthor. Better known as a bald man (though not always bald in the comic books, mind you), Luthor's name has already appeared in the first Superman movie in this universe.
