Seventy years separate the timelines of Ridley Scott’s directorial efforts Blade Runner and Prometheus, but a new Easter Egg suggests the plots take place in the same world. Available on DVD/Blu-ray in just a couple of days, Prometheus will have a special feature that reveals a few lines of text supposedly written by Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce). The text, which you can read after the jump, talks about Weyland’s mentor, a creator of synthetic lifeforms who will be instantly familiar to fans of Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic, Blade Runner. This may be a simple nod to the fans that connects Scott’s works or perhaps it hints at a potential crossover in the planned sequel to Blade Runner. Hit the jump to check out the Easter Egg.
One of the joys of Pixar films is that the animators and creatives at the studio go out of their way to infuse each film with a number of hidden easter eggs for hardcore Pixar fans to spot. Their latest output, Cars 2, is no exception. While a lot of the widely known eggs like the Pizza Planet truck and the number A113 show up, some hidden gags are bit more subtle. Now Disney has released a list of all the easter eggs that were hidden in the film, and they’ve also pointed out specific parts of the movie that were “car-ified” (Director John Lasseter wanted to infuse as many of the locations and buildings surrounding the Cars world with automobile references or car-reminiscent shapes, hence “car-ified”).
Hit the jump to check out the list to spot what you may have missed. The film features the voice talents of talent of Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Emily Mortimer, Jason Isaacs, Bruce Campbell, John Turturro, Thomas Kretschmann, and Michael Caine. Cars 2 is in theaters now.
With Cars 2 hitting theaters this weekend, Disney held a press junket in Hollywood a few days ago and I spoke with the cast and director John Lasseter. Since Adam recently interviewed Lasseter at Pixar, I made sure to ask all new questions.
During the five minute interview (which could have been thirty minutes with how many questions I’d prepared), Lasseter talked about the Easter Eggs in Cars 2, what is his favorite Pixar collectible, reveals that he voiced a character, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch.
After the awesome Toy Story 3 trailer went online yesterday, director Lee Unkrich started using Twitter to interact with fans of the movie and daring them to find some of the hidden Easter Eggs in the trailer.

Even if you saw the trailer yesterday, I promise you didn’t notice everything in the trailer. Hit the jump to take a look at what you missed:
