The Trailer For Tim Burton’s Big Eyes

1406919919000-XXX-FIRSTLOOK-BIGEYES-01-66181054

Here is the trailer for director Tim Burton’s upcoming Big Eyes!

Big Eyes, set for release on December 25, 2014, stars Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Danny Huston, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman and Terence Stamp, and offers a biopic of artist Margaret Keane, the painter whose distinctive creations featuring big-eyed children became one of art’s first mass-market success stories in the 1950s.

Big Eyes covers Keane’s personal awakening at the onset of the feminist movement, leading to a lawsuit she filed against her husband Walter, who claimed credit for her works. He lived the high life while she toiled in relative anonymity in the Bay Area.

J.J. Abrams Releases Video In Response To Zack Snyder’s Star Wars/Batman Tease

In response to Zack Snyder’s image featuring a Stormtrooper being arrested for stealing the Batmobile, Star Wars VII director J.J. Abrams has released a great video featuring the Millennium Falcon.

gzu3nr5qq3zox8tkjvnp

Zack Snyder and J.J. Abrams continue to have fun with the filming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars VII. You may remember Snyder released an image last week featuring a Stormtrooper being put into a police car with the Batmobile beside him.

The two directors have been playing photo-tag with each other, but now Abrams has released a hilarious video featuring a specific vehicle attached to the Millennium Falcon.

Below the Millennium Falcon we see the Batmobile featured in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. It’s painted to blend in with the Millennium Falcon and is attached below the spacecraft.

Even the music switches from Star Wars to Batman as we see the camera pan to reveal Batman’s Tumbler. Abrams has thrown the ball back into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder’s court.

The two directors continue to mash-up Star Wars and Batman material as they finish filming their respective films. We look forward to seeing the two directors continuing their fun between shooting in the future.

Warner Bros. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release date is set to March 25, 2016. Star Wars VII has its release date set for December 18, 2015.

Construction has begun at Walt Disney World Resort on a brand new “Frozen” attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film. The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet guests.

“Frozen’s” popular characters will also have a bigger presence at Magic Kingdom Park this holiday season. In addition to the ongoing character appearances, Queen Elsa will use her powers to transform Cinderella Castle into an ice palace every night starting in early November. And Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party-goers can see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf in Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.

The theme park is extending some favorite elements of Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!, too, so that guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios can continue singing along to “Frozen” songs with Queen Elsa and Princess Anna. Wandering Oaken’s will set up shop closer to the show through the holiday season and will feature a larger play area with real snow (in Florida!).

Spoke Art Announces Kubrick – An Art Show Tribute Opening On September 6, 2014

15010669492_366f4c4a57_b

Spoke Art is proud to present: Kubrick – An art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick. Over 60 artists were invited to re-imagine their favorite characters, scenes and thematic concepts from one of the world’s most prolific directors. Spanning a plethora of mediums from sculpture and painting to limited edition prints, the show seeks to honor one of the 20th century’s most significant directors while also reinterpreting his impact in a contemporary context.

Widely known for his controversial techniques and highly controlled directorial style, Kubrick has fabricated a diverse repertoire of films and imagined worlds for his viewers. One of the great idiosyncratic masterminds in history’s cinema, Kubrick has cultivated a noteworthy genre completely his own. Critical discussions of humanity, morality and social justice all appear in his work regularly.

Contextually disparate but psychologically banded, all of Kubrick’s films challenge the viewer both intellectually and ethically. A true auteur, Kubrick’s work pushes our understanding of human nature to severe place. Extreme violence, salaciousness and deranged psychological behavior are commonplace motifs instrumented to establish Kubrick’s pessimistic undertones. Even through satire, Kubrick manages to take levity to a place of lunatic proportion.

All the artists were allowed to select the film of their choosing, there were no guidelines on subject matter or content. Each artist was given free reign to re-interpret and render their take on Kubrick’s entire cinematic collection. Resulting in a variegated display, KUBRICK is an experiment in modernity, a cross-section between film and art.

Participating Artists include Aaron Jasinski, Adam Maida, Akira Beard, Alex Kirzhener, Anarkitty, Audrey Pongracz, Bartosz Kosowski, Brian Ewing, Brian Methe, Bruce White, Chris Skinner, Christine Aria Hostetler, Crowded Teeth, Cuddly Rigor Mortis , Cuyler Smith, Dave MacDowell, David Moscati, Doug LaRocca, Eiko Ojala, Fernando Reza, Gene Guynn, Geoff Trapp, Glen Brogan, Guillaume Morellec, Irma Rivera, Ivonna Buenrostro, Jayde Fish, Jen Mann, Jesse Riggle, Jessica Deahl, Johannah O’Donnell, John Wentz, Jon Wayshack, Joshua Budich, Justin, VanGenderen, Kate Zambrano, Kate Copeland, Kiersten Essenpreis, Mandy Tsung, Matt Dye, Meghan Stratman , Michael Ramstead, Epyon 5, Nan Lawson , New Flesh, Nicole Gustafsson, Oliver Barrett, Rhys Cooper, Robert Wilson, Sam Gilbey, Sam Ho, Sam Smith, Sandi Calistro, Sarah Joncas, Steve Yamane, Thomas Walker, Tim Maclean, Tim Jordan, Tim Doyle, Tracie Ching, Van Orton Design, Veronica Fish and Vincent Aseo.

Kubrick – An art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick will open on September 6, 2014 and run until September 27th 2014. Spoke Art is located at 816 Sutter St. San Francisco, CA 94109.
