by     Posted 8 days ago

superhero-movie-release-dates

There’s no denying that the most popular genre around these days is that of the superhero movie.  Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy proved that comic book adaptations could be just as dramatic and heavy as non-genre films, Marvel Studios jumpstarted a massive interconnected series of superhero movies that were significantly more colorful and humorous, and audiences have been turning out to both kinds of superhero movies in droves.  With every major studio now working to turn its own comic book properties into the next big thing, it’s sometimes tough to keep track of what’s coming out when, who’s in it, and how it fits into the overall picture.  Not to worry, though, because we here at Collider have you covered.

After the jump, you’ll find a comprehensive guide of superhero movie release dates for every major comic book adaptation on the calendar, going all the way up to the year 2020.  Moreover, we’ll be updating this guide regularly with the most current information, so if you’re ever looking for the latest news on a specific film, you can come right back here for a quick overview.

Miller’s Fred.  This brand new Big Hero 6 clip actually comes from the footage revealed at the film’s New York Comic-Con panel.  Hiro’s a gifted kid, but much to his big brother’s disappointment, he’s busy using his talents to make money in illegal back alley robot fights.  In hopes of setting him straight, Tadashi brings him to his lab to show him what he’s working on and to introduce him to his school friends, including Fred.

You’d think some of the folks attending the Big Hero 6 panel at New York Comic-Con might be big fans of the source material.  However, when the guy warming up the crowd prior to the panel asked who has read the comic book, hardly anyone responded.  In fact, one of the only audible responses was, “It’s weird.”  Weird or not, Big Hero 6 the movie looks like it’ll be a major crowd-pleaser.  At this point, Walt Disney Animation Studios has unleashed a slew of promotional material and Baymax is absolutely killing it in every last bit of it.

With the film less than a month away from its big debut, directors Don Hall and Chris Williams, producer Roy Conli, and voice actors Scott Adsit, Ryan Potter, Genesis Rodriguez, Jamie Chung and T.J. Miller all hit the main stage at the Javits Center to talk Big Hero 6 and show off some unseen clips from the film.  Hit the jump for my Big Hero 6 Comic-Con panel recap, and click here to watch the new trailer.

I had no idea that Disney’s Big Hero 6 was going to be this big.  Everything I had seen so far from the film seemed to indicate that this story about Baymax (voiced by Scott Adsit) and Hiro Hamada’s (Ryan Potter) would actually be somewhat smaller in scope. But no, the sizzle reel unveiled today at the New York Comic Con changed all of that.  Big Hero 6 is flat out Mario Kart massive. Hit the jump to check out the new Big Hero 6 NYCC sizzle reel.  The film also features the voices of Daniel HenneyT.J.

TOP 5: TIFF 2014, Dwayne Johnson Cast in Upcoming SHAZAM Film, BIG HERO 6, Fall 2014 Horror Preview, Creepy as Hell CUB Trailer

This week’s Labor Day holiday afforded me the opportunity to check out a matinee screening of writer/director Richard Linklater‘s Boyhood. I consider myself a sucker for coming-of-age stories and, as such, I went into the movie expecting to like it. I didn’t expect to leave the theater feeling as if I’d just watched the greatest coming-of-age film ever made. From beginning to end, Boyhood feels important. Not “important” in that it demands to be taken seriously, rather in a way that feels as if Linklater is genuinely interested in capturing something authentic and meaningful. I never once got the impression that the timeline in which the film was made was being used as a gimmick for cheap emotional connection. To the contrary, Boyhood earns every emotional beat it hits by way of excellent performances (Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke stand out in particular), airtight pacing that documents the highlights of Mason’s adolescence, and sharp writing that makes it feel as if you didn’t miss all that much by bottling up 12 years of life into 165 minutes. I don’t know what kind of award chances Boyhood has and, to be honest, it really doesn’t matter. Awards are beneath this film. It’s a high-water mark not just for Linklater but for the medium in general.

All Boyhood hyperbole aside, this week’s Top 5 features all of our TIFF 2014 coverage to date, Dwayne Johnson being cast as “Black Adam” in Warner Bros. upcoming Shazam pic, interviews for and 24 things to know about Disney’s Big Hero 6, our Fall 2014 Horror Preview, and a disturbingly excellent trailer for the Belgian horror film Cub. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

To promote the upcoming November 7th release of the Walt Disney Animation Studios feature Big Hero 6, the studio invited members of the press out to see portions of the animated action-adventure comedy and to participate in presentations and demos to show what it takes to put a film like this together, from all aspects of the production.  The story follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter) who, after a tragic event, turns to robot companion Baymax (voiced by Scott Adsit).  With a dangerous plot unfolding on the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro transforms a group of like-minded friends – adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voiced by Jamie Chung), precision freak Wasabi (voiced by Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voiced by Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voiced by T.J. Miller) – into high-teach heroes determined to solve the mystery and save the day.

During the early press day to preview what audiences can expect when the film inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name opens, Head of Animation Zach Parrish (who oversees the artists charged with creating the movement, emotion and physical performance of the characters) spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how exciting it is to know that people are already falling in love with the characters, that each of the character’s superpowers come from their personality, how much it helps the animation process when characters each have their own unique style, what he was most drawn to with this project, animating a character like Baymax who only has simple eyes to express himself with, what being head of animation on a project like this entails, and whether he can watch the finished film objectively.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

During the early press day to preview what audiences can expect when the film inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name opens, co-directors Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how strongly people are responding to the characters before the film has even been released, the importance of this story being set in a diverse world with such diverse characters, the advantages of sharing directing duties on an animated feature, developing a complex mash-up story, how hard it is to have so many characters with so many costume changes, how they compromise if they disagree on the details, that they’ve storyboarded enough scenes to make 10 movies, and that the animators made gag versions of some of the shots, that they’re hoping will end up on the Blu-ray/DVD.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

BIG HERO 6 Clip Introduces Unlikely Friends Hiro and Baymax

by     Posted 52 days ago

big-hero-6-clip

Disney has released a new Big Hero 6 clip online.  Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) directed the adaptation of the Marvel comic, which takes place in the high-tech city of San Fransokyo, and tells the story of a robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter) who, with his robot companion Baymax (Scott Adsit) in tow, teams up with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters to save the metropolis from destruction.

I’m not familiar with the source material, but I really dug the trailer and am looking forward to seeing this movie next month.  I think it’s interesting that a lot of the more clever writing on the studio end of things these days is for animated projects.  This clip is most certainly from earlier in the film considering it seems to be the scene where Hiro and Baymax first meet.  Hit the jump to check out the new Big Hero 6 clip.  The film also features the voices of Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr., and Alan TudykBig Hero 6 opens in 3D on November 7th.  And be sure to check back in with us tomorrow, since we have a lot more coverage on this film hitting then.
