Six Big Heroes

As our favorite animated movie from 2014 is about to get its home video release (already available digitally), BIG HERO 6 has passed $500 million!  Hiro, Baymax and the gang are still to open in some large markets around the world.

Some Fun from the Galaxy Far, Far Away

That’s no moon, that’s a FIRE PIT!  Check out this awesome Death Star (II) Fire Pit!  Built by Kenneth Triplett, an 84 year old New Mexico native.  He should be proud of this technological terror he’s constructed, although the ability to warm a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Next up in our parade of awesome, check out the Rocking Ride-In Spaceship (you’ll immediately know what kind) at StevensWoodenToys on DeviantArt.

Superb craftsmanship went into both these creations.

Spidey Assemble!

The big news broke late Monday that a deal has been made between Marvel and Sony Pictures thus allowing Spider-Man to enter the MCU.  Marvel has been working for years to get the rights back from Sony.  Some industry insiders say that Disney has offered billions.  Spidey is going to appear in 2016’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR!   This makes the most sense out of the announced upcoming titles.  Avi Arad’s role will trimmed to Executive Producer = NO CREATIVE INPUT (we hope).  Sony will allow Spider-Man to be in CIVIL WAR as they take time to pull together their next big web-slinging adventure (another reboot?!?!).  It’s a hugely positive and smart first step for Marvel in getting Spider-Man back 100%

As of now, Sony’s next Spider-Man is due on July 28, 2017 causing some re-adjusting of Marvel’s Phase 3 slate:

THOR: RAGNAROK moves to November 3, 2017.

BLACK PANTHER moves to July 6, 2018.

CAPTAIN MARVEL moves to November 2, 2018.

INHUMANS moves to July 12, 2019.

 

 

Lloyd Webber Tweets Praise for HAMILTON

Looks like The Public has another hit in the making.  The hottest ticket in New York is for HAMILTON – Lin Manuel Miranda’s off Broadway (but not for long) hip hop inspired telling of founding father Alexander Hamilton’s life.

Joss Whedon, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Helen Mirren and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber have all seen HAMILTON.  Webber tweeted that the show “raises and changes the bar for musicals.” He also commends the “brilliant lyrics, staging, cast.  Creator / lead Lin Manuel is special.”  Whoa.  Some high praise there. Sounds like it’s well deserved…Lin Manuel is also behind INTO THE HEIGHTS!

Check out much more about HAMILTON and Lin Manuel in this New Yorker article.
