Disney Parks & Resorts has officially unveiled their plans to transform Disney California Adventure’s Paradise Pier into Pixar Pier. The Walt Disney Company’s theme park division has been busy figuring out additional ways to capitalize on their Lucasfilm and Marvel Entertainment acquisitions. Their first project was retooling Twilight Zone’s Tower of Terror into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, which opened this past summer, while also constructing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Disneyland Resort’s Star Wars-themed land – but that neither project has distracted them from their other properties.
The Mouse House initially announced plans to turn California Adventure’s current Paradise Pier (the section in ...

Co-star on HBO’s Westworld, Ben Barnes, confirms he’s returning for season 2. Season 1 of the sci-fi series developed by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy debuted on the premium cabler more than a year ago and took the internet by storm. The high concept drama took the premise of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film and created a complex tale of an amusement park populated by robotic hosts and human guests. Some of the fun of Westworld were all the theories the show inspired that were discussed among fans between episodes.
One of those biggest theories, that season 1 followed storylines in multiple time periods, turned out to be correct, with Jimmi Simpson’s William ...

Boon and Tobias originally envisioned an action game with the Muscles from Brussels front and centre but were forced to scrap their plans after finding out JCVD was already in negotiations with another company to develop his own computer game.
That game never ended up getting made, but Mortal Kombat did and, thankfully for Boon and Tobias, there wasn’t a trace of Van Damme in sight. A gore-filled fight-fest ...

After years without a Star Trek presence on TV, Star Trek: Discovery is bringing the franchise back to life, but some long-time fans prefer Seth MacFarlane’s dramedy The Orville on FOX, and the show’s producers think its because The Orville has a wide audience appeal like the original Trek.
MacFarlane’s series – which just earned a second season – takes place in the 25th century and revolves around Captain Ed Mercer (MacFarlane) and the crew of the titular Orville. It’s a surprisingly faithful homage to the feel and aesthetic of Star Trek: The Next Generation – a show MacFarlane unabashedly loves – peppered with moments of the Family Guy and Ted creator’s signature humor. The series launched the ...

Get to know the new cast members of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with first look images and descriptions for each character. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. continued on strong last season, but was the beneficiary of a somewhat surprising renewal for a fifth season – possibly forced upon ABC by Disney. The renewal will allow the showrunners and writers to craft a story around the team’s mysterious kidnapping at the end of season 4, one that has now brought them to an unknown space location.
It is still unclear just who has kidnapped the agents, but it was reasonable to assume Coulson and his team would not be the only people ...
