It’s one of the most mysterious projects to be coming out in 2015, and it will be in theaters smack dab in the middle of one of the busiest “Summer of Sequels” in the increasingly long, sad Hollywood history of franchise dependence. Originality is hard to come by in Tinseltown these days, and certainly recent evidence (Jupiter Ascending and Chappie) seems to indicate that people would rather trust the devil they know when it comes to high-profile sci-fi/fantasy films, but can Tomorrowland buck that trend? Disney is hoping so, even though they’re set to make it rain in 2015 with The Avengers and Star Wars alone, and the studio’s looking to convince fans further that Brad Bird’s latest film is definitely worth checking out when it’s released next month.

One of the most intriguing developments coming out of Star Wars and Lucasfilm‘s acquisition by Walt Disney Studios is that we’re not just getting a new trilogy, we’re going to be getting a new movie every year. At least that’s Disney’s desire anyway. Shortly after production got underway on The Force Awakens, the first chapter of the new trilogy, Disney started recruiting talent for the first of a series of films to take place in the Star Wars universe, but is not a part of the Skywalker saga. For the first of these films we know the director (Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards), we know the star (Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones), and we know the name (Rogue One). But now, most importantly, we know what it’s going to be about… (more…)

So will Ant-Man be able to captialize on Marvel mania, or will it be the studio’s first real bomb? Perhaps the trailer will give you a hint… (more…)

Peter Parker

By now, everyone knows that the Spider-Man franchise is being rebooted… again. This time Sony has bent over for Disney and given them the opportunity to use Spidey in their own version of the Marvel Universe. This gave rise to a lot of fan outcry that Marvel should give one of the other favorite incarnations of Spider-Man a chance – namely Miles Morales. But according to MCU overlord Kevin Feige, they’ll be sticking with the familiar face of Peter Parker. (more…)

If that wasn’t enough to get you interested, would you like to see the synopsis that’s also floating around? (more…)

TRON 3. No, wait! Don’t run away! Look, I think many us might concede that TRON: Legacy was a bit of a disappointment; 18 years of hype will do that. You may recall that at the time there were all these great expectations about TRON becoming Disney‘s next great franchise: movie trilogies, animated series, theme park rides, video games and merch, merch more. However, that’s not how it all turned out, and since those early days following TRON: Legacy‘s release in December 2010, the idea of a third TRON has been more or less speculative as opposed to being something in actual development. But is that about to change? Film location insiders in Vancouver are saying, it might be. (more…)
