When you’re part of a giant franchise, there are going to be toys of you. That’s just how these things tend to work. Star Wars is in a realm all of its own, with toys ranging from giant Star Destroyer LEGO sets to Elan Sleazebaggano action figures, and, naturally, the stars of the franchise have their favorites and least-favorites. Mark Hamill recently shared his opinion on what he thinks is the worst Luke Skywalker toy, and it’s quite a doozy.
It wouldn’t be a Despicable Me movie without an original Pharrell Williams song, now would it? “Happy” topped the charts back in 2013 ahead of Despicable Me 2’s release, won an Oscar and a Grammy, and remains a staple of sorority recruitment videos and soft drink commercials to this day. For Universal’s follow-up, the singer has composed a slightly more sedate number, titled “There’s Something Special,” the music video for which was released today. There’s something going on in this video, all right, but I dunno if it’s special.
With all the excitement over Mary Poppins Returns brewing lately, a lot of fans have been wondering if the O.G. Poppins, Julie Andrews, will be making a cameo appearance. As it turns out, Andrews is in full support of the sequel, but she won’t be in it, and she has a very good reason why.
Baby Driver, about a getaway driver named Baby whose tinnitus prompts him to carry an iPod everywhere to distract himself from the noise, is Edgar Wright’s love letter to music. And his particular brand of music seems to be the best kind of toe-tappin’, finger-snappin’, rock ‘n’ roll that’s liable to give both Guardians of the Galaxy mixtapes a run for their money. At last, the full tracklist has been released, so set up your Spotify playlist accordingly.
In the weeks before the new season of Twin Peaks premiered, none of the promotional footage we saw gave us any hints about what to expect. That was exactly how David Lynch wanted it: for a show this intricate and bizarre and tempting to try and dissect, there was to be no information that could lend itself to any early fan theorizing. Even the episode descriptions on Showtime’s website (for Episodes 1 and 2: “The stars turn and a time presents itself”) are deliberately oblique. Lynch himself thinks that all the promotional material we’re inundated with before a movie or a show premieres does more harm than good.
Some days it seems like a new sequel rumor hits the Internet every day. Whispers of Top Gun 2 have been floating around the stratosphere for a few years, with the movie even getting a screenwriter at one point, Val Kilmer vowing to return, and even a mysterious meeting with Jerry Bruckheimer. Sometimes, because of timing or lack of resources or myriad other reasons, sequels just don’t end up happening even if they’re hyped. But today brings good news for Top Gun 2 hopefuls: it’s definitely happening, and Tom Cruise himself says it’ll start filming within the next twelve months.
Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is going to be a sight to behold, simply because it’s two hours of ridiculously cool car stunts seen through Wright’s one-of-a-kind directing style. Also Jon Hamm, Ansel Elgort, and Kevin Spacey are in it, so why is it even a question? Of course we’re all going. A new featurette showcases the lengths all the stars went to in order to make the car stunts look as mind-boggling as possible.
In today’s Things That Make You Go Hmm news: The new animated Jetsons movie, based on the popular Hanna-Barbera TV series, has brought one of Sausage Party’s co-directors, Conrad Vernon, on board to “develop” and probably also to direct the movie.
Man, Johnny Depp is having one PR disaster after another these days. Between lat year’s abuse allegations to this month’s hot goss about his inability to stop himself from spending money, you’d think he’d have run out of messes to get himself into by now. Well, shockingly, you’d be wrong, because news just got out that Depp had rejected an early draft of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales script because its villain was a woman.
