Cars 2 characters: Lewis Hamilton & David Hobbscap

The Cars 2 character rollout continues with Lewis Hamilton and David Hobbscap, inspired and voiced by real life racers Lewis Hamilton and David Hobbs. HeyUGuys got the first look and official descriptions for both characters.

With his striking black paint job, Lewis Hamilton is one of the coolest Cars cars ever. David Hobbscap, on the other hand, is a quintessentially British driver turned commentator.

Where Can I See a Crystal Skull In Star Wars: The Clone Wars? - Answered

The last episode of Season 3 of Clone Wars hides an Indy nod. Blink and you will miss it. Its near the end where you can see a crystal skull just like the one from the fourth Indy movie. Take a look...

Karen Allen "Would Adore" Doing Another Indiana Jones Sequel

Karen Allen stars in the indie film White Irish Drinkers, opening Friday, March 25th. The actress is perhaps best known for playing Indiana Jones' love interest Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark and, more recently, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which also starred Shia LaBeouf as her son with Indy. Will we ever see her in another Indiana Jones film? Allen is open to the idea. "I would adore to do another one," she says. "I would be so interested to see where they take a story if we moved forward with Shia being introduced into the story now as our son, and Indy and Marion being married and where do you go from there." Allen's credits also include Animal House, but don't expect a sequel to the classic 1978 comedy. She says, "Our joke now whenever we get together as a group is that we're going to make a film called Animal Home, where all of us end up in an old age home together."

Super 8 Trailer Uses Cocoon Music With A Hint Of Close Encounters

Super 8 Trailer Features Cocoon Music I personally cannot wait for this movie.  Super 8 will feel very retro.  Set in the 70's this will feel like an old fashioned Spielberg movie and that's no bad thing.  directed by J. J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, and starring Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, and Kyle Chandler Super 8 hits theaters June 10, 2011

Set in 1979 Ohio, a group of six young children use a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One night while filming near a remote stretch of railroad tracks, the children witness a truck collide with an oncoming train leading to a catastrophic derailment. Amidst the fire and destruction, something inhuman emerge

Watch the trailer and feel all warm inside as we return to the 70's and 80's with a hint of Close Encounters and The Goonies.  The music in the trailer is from Cocoon composed by James Horner.  Enjoy.  I cannot wait!

The Bearded Trio Rango Review. Pixar Look Out ILM Are Here!

Industrial Light & Magic Have Joined The Game With A Top Quality Family-Friendly Animated FeatureJohnny Depp is a domesticated chameleon who assumes the role of sheriff in a frontier town called Dirt populated by desert creatures.  'The Lizard' is a pet chameleon wearing a colorful Hawaiian shirt. This aspiring actor spends hours improvising scenes with the toys in his terrarium; but when he is accidentally tossed onto the side of the highway winding through the desert, he quickly learns that surviving in the wild is real drama.

Right from the start the first thing you will notice is how polished the animation is.  Industrial Light and Magic have really surpassed themselves with the way they have brought the world of Rango to life.  I have never seen animation like it.  The textures of each character and attention to detail is incredible even down to the cracks on the beaks of the owls.  Its a very colourful and being set in the desert its also a very bright movie.
