The New ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Trailer

Posted 4 years ago by Movies

The Muppets was one of my favorite movies of 2011 and it really brought the characters back in a big way. I’ve been very excited about the upcoming sequel, and now Disney has unveiled a trailer and it looks great.

I love the Great Muppet Caper vibe and the European setting. The cast looks great, and I can’t wait to see all the extra cameos that weren’t in the trailer.

Muppets Most Wanted hits theaters on March 21, 2014.

Hey, this doesn't look that bad but who knows, it could be horrible. I think Maleficent is a badass villain though.

‘The Wolverine’ Deleted Scene Reveals Classic Costume
I haven't seen The Wolverine yet, but this is an awesome deleted scene. Part of me really wants to see the classic costume on film at least once, but it would probably look horrible.

Whether or not you liked the first Amazing Spider-Man, you have to admit that the costume in the sequel is amazing. I can't wait to see it in action.

LEGO Disney Princess Line

LEGO Disney Princesses

Did you know LEGO is releasing a Disney Princess line in 2014? I had no idea. I’m not exactly their target market, but I can tell you that I’ve got quite a few nieces who are going to eat these sets up. Not surprisingly, the minifigures are based on the LEGO Friends line, but I don’t think they look that bad.

The first sets will be based around Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Tangled, and Brave.

Ben Affleck’s Batman May Have an Awesome Costume

Posted 4 years ago by Movies

Jim Lee Batman

Man of Steel comes out on Blu-ray today, and during an event to promote the release, Kevin Smith raved about the new Batman costume in the upcoming sequel. Zack Snyder also made comments about Lex Luthor, seemingly confirming his role in the movie, but I think everyone expected that. The juicy part of this story is hearing Smith, a huge Batman geek, talk about the new costume.

I saw the costume, more than that I saw him [Ben Affleck] in the costume…I don’t want to give anything away cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this…I instantly bear hugged him. You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before. For a comb book fan, it was mind-bending… Because every other movie has done this matrixy black armor thing…There wasn’t a single nipple on this fucking suit man… I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy Shit!’ It’s its own thing, man. We haven’t been down this path before…. There’s a very [beep]-influence to it, I would say.

Fans that attended the event mentioned that the beeped part of his description was Jim Lee. Lee was responsible for the awesome grey/blue suit in the early 2000s, and if that’s the direction they’re taking it for this movie then I am on board. Earlier reports were that the suit would be inspired by the graphic novel Batman Noel, so signs are pointing to a more grey/black/blue/pouchy design.

I think this is great news. Even though I love the Nolan Batman movies, I’m ready for a new version of Bats on the big screen. I doubt Affleck will be running around in tights, but as long as it doesn’t look overly tactical and has some grey in it, I’ll be happy.

What do you think though?

Further Proof ‘The LEGO Movie’ is Going to be Awesome

The LEGO Movie

Man, I am so ridiculously pumped for The LEGO Movie. It looks hilarious and I love the design of the film and how the characters move like real LEGOs instead of the bendy style of the LEGO video games and TV shows. The cast is amazing, and now I’m excited about all the upcoming tie-in LEGO sets.

The entire next series of collectible minifigures are from the movie and they’re all great. Abraham Lincoln? Panda Suit guy? Crazy hillbilly robot thingy? Awesome.

Besides the minifigures, there are going to be 17 sets based on the movie, and they look like so much fun. You can see them all over at Euro Bricks, but here are a couple of my favorites.
