Anticipation for Disney·Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur” was amplified when director Peter Sohn and producer Denise Ream shared breathtaking sequences with fans, including never-before-seen footage of a trio of T-Rexes in action. “The Good Dinosaur” features Arlo, a sheltered Apatosaurus who finds himself far from home among a host of intimidating creatures. Featuring the voices of AJ Buckley, Anna Paquin and Sam Elliott as the T-Rexes, “The Good Dinosaur” opens in theaters nationwide Nov. 25, 2015.

Star Wars Episode VII’s BB-8 Will Be REAL!

When Episode VII’s new star BB-8 rolled out onto the stage of the Anaheim Convention Center last week during the opening panel of Star Wars Celebration, he was greeted with gasps, applause and all around dropped jaws from the crowd of 5000 seated in the arena. Everyone one of us immediately thought two things: WOW, he’s not CGI and I WANT ONE. Now, it looks like the folks at Sphero will make this wish come true.

Sphero CEO Paul Berberian confirmed rumors that his company is involved in the creation of BB-8 and that a retail version will be availible later this year. Sphero received funding from Disney, is best known for its eponymous motorized ball, which users can control with their smartphones through Bluetooth.

There is only a teaser page to go on, but perhaps the signup form will provide more answers soon as to when we may have our favorite new character from a galaxy far, far away rolling into our homes!

“Ash Vs Evil Dead” Is One Step Closer To Our Eyes. Groovy.

Ash vs Evil Dead

The STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” began production this month in New Zealand on the 10-episode first season of the half-hour series executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers of the franchise, and Craig DiGregorio who will serve as executive producer and showrunner. “Ash vs Evil Dead” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in fall 2015.

Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

The Interview Pulled by Sony. No Theaters, No VOD, No DVD/Blu-ray

1148443 - THE INTERVIEW

Variety — “With theater chains defecting en masse, Sony Pictures Entertainment has pulled the planned Christmas Day release of “The Interview.” U.S. officials have reportedly linked a massive cyber attack against Sony to North Korea, which is at the center of the Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy.

“We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public,” Sony said in a statement. “We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.”

A few hours after making the announcement, a studio spokesman said that Sony had “no further plans” to release the comedy, either on VOD or DVD.”

Back to Back to the Future – Twin Pines Mall 10-26-14 Meetup A Success!

10-26-14

On the morning of October 25, 1985, Doctor Emmet L. Brown requested that Marty McFly meet him late that night at the Twin Pines Mall. Doc claimed that he “made a major breakthrough” and would need Marty’s assistance.

Although we are currently living in a different timeline where the mall is known not as “Twin Pines Mall” nor “Lone Pine Mall” but “Puente Hills Mall,” a group of faithful fans of the scientist’s work still honor that red letter late night / early morning when Doc Brown conducted the first successful temporal experiment #1 at 1:20 AM and zero seconds, sending his dog Einstein one minute into…THE FUTURE!

Thanks to all that met up at the mall, and for anyone looking to join up for next year (or just be part of a super cool BTTF fan community), please feel free to join the Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/twinpinesmall.

See you next time we go BACK to the historical parking lot, late night October 25 (early morning of the 26th)! Or if you just want to check it out:

Puente Hills Mall
1600 South Azusa Ave.
City of Industry, CA 91748

Scott Pilgrim vs. Frozen

SPvsFROZEN

Last Friday night in Los Angeles, Disney’s El Capitan Theatre again played host to Frozen, bringing the magical animated film back to the big screen for a limited Sing-A-Long engagement. We were there.

On the same evening, the wonderful New Beverly Cinema held one of its regular midnight screenings of Edgar Wright’s 2010 Epic of Epic Epicness, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. We were there as well.

While we revisited these two classics, we couldn’t help but notice some interesting similarities. They might not seem like a fitting double bill… but they just may have more in common than you think (or at least 45 seconds)…

Composer Christophe Beck Talks About Alternate Musical Directions In FROZEN

Anna-Elsa-Storybook

While the big studio Comic-Con panels were wowing Fanboy and Fangirl eyes with their big presentations of upcoming blockbusters in Hall H, we took a detour and gave our eyes a rest in favor of our ears… more specifically, The Second Annual Musical Anatomy of a Superhero panel, where we had the chance to sit down with composer Christophe Beck. If Mr. Beck is not as much of a household name as the likes of John Williams and Danny Elfman, he soon will be, having recently broken the record for most weeks atop the Billboard 200 albums chart with his FROZEN score, ending the streak for the longest running #1 soundtrack (previously held by Disney’s The Lion King).

While Beck popped onto our radar with his pitch perfect musical accompaniment to Disney’s groundbreaking short, “Paperman,” as well as his work on the two recent Muppet movies, it was his magical score for Walt Disney Feature Animation’s 2013 film that captured our frozen hearts, seamlessly working with Kristin Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez’ catchy tunes. But how does a musical maestro like Beck conjure up such melodic magic? Mr. Beck shared with us one instance on Frozen, right before “Let It Go,” where his original vision for Anna setting out of Arendelle in pursuit of Elsa was rethought, in the composer’s words, “to be more about determination and family bond than something bad that happened.”

Christoph Beck is currently scoring “Hot Tub Time Machine 2″ and “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.”

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Phase 3 — What’s Next?

IMG_8946

On Tuesday, July 8, 2014, the opening day of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley, we here at EG were midway through the 8 hours and 51 minutes it would take to ESCAPE FROM GRINGOTTS when we began to wonder about HARRY POTTER PHASE 3.

By this point, most Muggles are aware that Universal’s old JAWS attraction was, umm, blown up(?) to make way for the Diagon Alley expansion. And with less and less real estate available in both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure parks, more existing attractions may need to be eliminated if there is to be more Wizarding Magic to come. And so, as the sun blazed down and melted our brains during that epic wait, we began to fantasize about what’s next…
