When you follow movie news as closely as we do, you learn to roll your eyes at terrible ideas and move on. There's not point in getting worked up when a truly awful project is announced because getting worked up over every bad idea that comes out of Hollywood would mean getting worked up every single day of the year and we just don't have the energy to deal with getting worked up so often (whew).
But, today is a special day. Today, they've gone and announced movies based on Disneyland's 'It's a Small World' ride and popular Easter candy, Peeps Marshmallow Treats. Today, they have gone too far.
'Frozen' is a juggernaut. In addition to winning two Academy Awards and becoming the highest-grossing animated film of all time, the movie has seemingly struck a chord with an entire generation. You can't go out in public these days without hearing an adorable kid belt out a hilariously mangled version of "Let It Go." It's already a cultural touchstone. Children are going to be raised on this movie.
And, shockingly, Disney is not talking at all about 'Frozen 2.'
Robert Downey Jr. may be relatively new to Twitter, but he's taken to it like a duck to water as he's made fans happy by tweeting a photo from the set of 'The Avengers 2.' Downey has a penchant for charming self promotion that would put even Tony Stark to shame.
There is no easy way to finish 'Fast and Furious 7' without being somewhat insensitive toward the tragic death of series lead Paul Walker, but the cast and crew found the best and most noble solution imaginable. We already knew that Walker's brothers were going to join the production to help finish the film as body doubles, but they officially arrived on set and it looks like this plan is going to work.
Long before Marvel Studios and 'The Avengers' existed, Marvel Comics sold off the rights to many of its high profile characters to various studios. That's why Spider-Man can't meet Captain America and why the X-Men can't hang out with the Hulk -- Sony and Fox own the big screen rights to those characters and won't allow it. However, something peculiar is happening with the upcoming release of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2': a post-credits scene that teases 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'
When Paul Walker tragically died last November, the world mourned an actor who was not only a welcome screen presence, but a genuinely well-liked and respected guy. It was especially hard to hear the reactions of his 'Fast and Furious' franchise co-stars. This is a series all about friendship and family, so the loss of a key member of that crew hits hard. 'Fast and Furious 7' recently resumed shooting after an extended hiatus to rework the film and fans have been wondering how the production will work around the loss of a major character. Now, Universal hinted at a strange but touching solution.
In a move that really shouldn't surprise too many people, the ever-picky David Fincher is out of the director's chair for the upcoming (and untitled) Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin. The 'Zodiac' and 'The Social Network' director has a reputation for being demanding, and it looks like Sony balked at his requested fee and level of control.
This weekend saw a neck-and-neck race for the first spot at the box office, with the animated 'Rio 2' offering strong competition for last week's champion, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' When the dust, debris and feathers settled, the one starring the superhero took the first slot, but there is no shame in a second place that strong.
Few genres are as ripe for parody as sports dramas, and the upcoming 'Intramural' looks like it'll fit the bill quite nicely. The trailer for the small sports comedy made its way online, and if the rest of the film is as weird and funny as these two-and-a-half minutes, it could be something to keep an eye on.
After years of playing second fiddle to Disney in the theme park business, Universal is officially coming out swinging. In addition to an expanded focus on their Harry Potter and Simpsons licenses, and a new 'Despicable Me' ride, they have finally announced an attraction based on their massively popular 'Fast and Furious' franchise.
