• Weekend Box Office: 'Angel Has Fallen' Succeeds with $21 Million Opening Weekend

    Angel Has Fallen was an unstoppable force at this weekend's box office. The Gerard Butler-led threequel smashed through early predictions and earned $21 million domestically. It's come very close in its first weekend take to 2016's London Has Fallen, which earned $21.6 million when it hit theaters. Neither film has managed to crack the success of the one that kicked off the franchise, 2013's Olympus Has Fallen, which earned $30.4 million domestically. [caption id="attachment_802094"...

  • Disney+ Will Release Episodes Weekly, Not All at Once

    In the flurry of all the news about Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+ out of D23, something pretty major got lost in the shuffle: how the episodes will be released. While Netflix made popular the “binge model” in which all episodes of a season are released at once, available to watch as quickly as possible, it appears Disney+ will be taking a more traditional approach to its content rollout. Per TVLine, episodes of shows released on Disney+ will be released on a weekly basis, instead...

    Forthcoming Disney+ series Loki has found its director. The news arrived early Saturday morning just as the second day of the 2019 D23 Expo was kicking off. The series will see Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki, the God of Mischief and baby brother of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), after he escaped from the Battle of New York in Avengers: Endgame. On Friday, director Kate Herron finally revealed in a tweet that she would be directing Loki. "Secret is out! So happy to say I’m directing #Loki for...

  • 'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' Release Date Announced in First Teaser

    Netflix has finally confirmed the Breaking Bad movie release date — and it's going to be here sooner than you think. It's time to start re-binging the essential episodes, read all of the refreshers, and making sure you do everything else in your power to prepare properly because this new Breaking Bad tale is going to be one tense, wild ride. Both the release date and the official title for the Breaking Bad movie were confirmed in a short teaser released late on Saturday afternoon. The teaser...

  • New 'Black Widow' Footage Sees Natasha's White Costume and An A+ Superhero Pose Joke

    In addition to dropping a Black Panther 2 release date, the first look at Eternals, and a Kit Harrington bombshell, Marvel also brought some footage of the upcoming standalone Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johannson. Unfortunately, it looks like A) The studio isn't quite ready to release Black Widow footage on to the internet, and B) Roughly 95% of that footage was the same as the glimpse shown at Comic-Con of a fight scene between Natasha Romanoff and Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova. (And...

  • 'Onward' Footage Reveals a Funny, Emotional Fantasy Story Starring Tom Holland & Chris Pratt

    One of the bigger surprises out of Disney Studio's massive D23 presentation was Onward, the Pixar film I knew almost nothing about going in that completely won me over after eight minutes of footage. (And 10 seconds of Tom Holland crushing my soul.) Written and directed by Dan Scanlon, the film takes place in a fantasyland Los Angeles that's lost most of its magic. A pair of elf brothers, Ian (Tom Holland) and Barley (Chris Pratt), embark on a quest sparked by an artifact left behind by their...

  • 'Muppets Now' Disney+ Series Announced, Celebrity Guest Stars Teased

    Late on the first day of the D23 Expo came news that Muppets Now, a new series feature Kermit and Co., is coming to Disney+. It's been a hot minute since we've heard from Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and the rest of the Muppets crew. Thankfully, Kermit helped Disney+ announced the news when he tweeted out an announcement of the new series that will be cooked up. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Muppets Now will be a shortform unscripted series featuring — you guessed it — the Muppets. The...

  • New 'Mulan' Footage Has All the Force of a Great Typhoon

    I've been pretty back and forth on Disney's live-action remakes—their quality, their artistic choices, whether they need to exist, etc etc—but I'm delighted to report that the footage from Mulan shown at Disney D23 presentation whips all kinds of words I can't use in a Disney article. While it looks like the studio wasn't quite ready to release the new footage online, Collider was in the room to see director Niki Caro's live-action take on the animated classic. First of all, this is absolutely...

  • Marvel Brings Animated 'Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur' Series to the Disney Channel

    Disney Channel has ordered Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, an original animated series based on Marvel's hit comic books, from Disney Television Animation. Executive produced by Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland's Cinema Gypsy Productions (black-ish), Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, and Emmy Award-winner Steve Loter (Kim Possible), the series follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her ten-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur.

  • 'Frozen 2' Footage Showcases Flashbacks, Botched Proposals, and the New "Let It Go"

    Disney didn't skimp on the new footage during its big D23 presentation, but even with Marvel and Star Wars represented it was that old standby, animation, that won the day. That goes double for Frozen 2, the upcoming sequel to the studio's massive 2013 hit. While the new footage from the film hasn't hit the internet quite yet, Collider was in the room to see—and hear—the songs that are going to populate your head for, say, the next six years or so. The first scenes we saw showed off the big news...

  • Pixar's 'Onward': New Poster, Image with Tom Holland and Chris Pratt's Characters Revealed

    There were some nice Onward-related treats unveiled at Pixar's portion of the Walt Disney Studios panel at the 2019 D23 Expo on Saturday. During the film's presentation, a new poster and image were released in addition to an 8-minute preview of the animated film starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt. The new Onward poster is leaning hard into the '80s-inspired high fantasy vibes both the first set of images and the first teaser inspired when they were released back in late May. The poster...

  • Tom Holland Gets Emotional over Marvel-Sony Split at D23: “I Love You 3000”

    Spider-Man actor Tom Holland has broken his silence on the reported divorce between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, but be forewarned it’s a heart-breaker. The actor inhabits the role of Peter Parker in standalone Spider-Man movies for Sony Pictures, but they’ve been creatively produced by Marvel Studios as part of the Marvel-Sony deal that also led to Holland’s appearances in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. That deal came to a halt this past week in...
