    So apparently Justin Lin is no longer going to direct SPACE JAM 2, and instead, Warner Bros. are wanting to attach Terence Nance to the project instead. Meanwhile, although he's long been said to be starring in the sequel, LeBron James has still yet to approve the script, and/or officially sign on to star.

    Gotta hand it to Crazy Rich Asians for achieving its crazy success through the domestic market alone, though interestingly enough, it's other Asian countries where it's not doing so hot. This is likely because if they wanted to watch a movie with an all-Asian cast, they would have just seen one of their own homegrown productions.

    I think Wonder Park looks like a pretty good movie. The concept seems promising, and the animation is beautiful and of Disney/Pixar quality.

    Also, it's worth noting that the movie is being directed by Cow and Chicken creator David Feiss, who also worked on the Open Season movies. I guess that explains why the bear and the porcupine kinda look like Boog and Buddy.

    Now, normally I don't give much weight to critic reactions when movies come out, but the reviews for Ralph Breaks The Internet are really good! I'm relieved that now we know the movie will at least be decent, and people can finally stop comparing it to The Emoji Movie.

    I just saw Wreck-It Ralph 2 today, and it was great! Much better than I thought it was going to be.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it!
    And i'm sure it's a good movie, but the marketing didn't make it look very good. Other recent animated Disney movies have given us something in the trailers to intrigue us, or even a comedic teaser. The main point of advertising for this movie has simply been insert internet meme here, and all the product placement.

    One of my favorite parts of WiR2 was when
    Ralph did a Bob Ross parody video, complete with poofy hair. I could not stop laughing at that, especially because I'm a big fan of Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting.

    so apparently they're not including be prepared in the new lion king because they're afraid of the nazi references

    honestly the song itself is just any other villain song? the only nazi reference was the goosestepping hyenas. just dont animate that scene and problem solved

    cowards

    It's partly Nostalgia Critic's fault. He's the one who commented that, "'Be Prepared' is enjoyably menacing, turning a bunch of slack-jawed hyenas into the ******* Third Reich!"

    Bumblebee now has the lowest opening of the Bayformers movies so far at around $21 million, sitting at 3rd place behind Aquaman and Mary Poppins Returns. No doubt these will still be a thing because of the People's Republic, but it's nice to know that Yanks are getting sick of them. :)

    I don't get why the new Mary Poppins movie is doing so well right now . . . are moviegoers finally becoming desensitized to unnecessary reboots/remakes/rehashes/revivals? I mean, even Dick Van Dyke isn't happy about this.

    To be fair, MPR was based on the book sequels that P.L. Travers refused to allow Walt Disney to adapt, which explains the spiritual successor Bedknobs & Broomsticks. And I give them major credit for using hand-drawn animation for the chalk drawings like the first film as opposed to the same drab, dreary, ultra-realistic CGI in the other live-action remakes.

    True . . . even though the animated portions look more like something out of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon instead of a Disney animated feature, IMHO.

    Anyone hear about the new Sherlock movie practically tanking?

    I mean, it's Will Ferrell . . . when has a movie of his ever been good?
