POPzilla Gallery Celebrates Back To The Future And Other Time Travel Content With “Time After Time” Art Show Opening On May 9, 2015


Established in 2012, POPzilla Gallery traditionally curates two art events a year. Previous unofficial celebrations of pop culture have included everything from the steam punk fueled “SteamPOP” to last Fall’s Tim Burton tribute show. But with the upcoming “TIME after TIME” group show, they not only focus on the best trilogy ever, Back to the Future, but also other favorite time travel movies, video games, comics and TV shows.

This show in particular started out just celebrating the good citizens of Hill Valley, but they realized there is so much good time travel content out there that they knew they needed to make the show even bigger. So expect art also based on films such as Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Doctor Who and much more. That’s what POPzilla Gallery group art shows are known for — finding an overall umbrella type of theme where all the art has something in common, but at the same time completely different themes within. And then mix in approximately 60 different industry artists as they put their own spin on it.

The opening night reception for “TIME after TIME” is Saturday is May 9th 6pm – 10pm at the Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim, California. The Gallery is about a mile north of Disneyland, in Downtown Anaheim. As a special feature of the show on opening night only, there will be a replica Back to the Future DeLorean time machine for guests to get up close and personal with in front of the Gallery. There is no charge to enter the “TIME after TIME” group show. Both the originals on the wall and the prints will all be for sale.  POPzilla’s goal is to always price-to-sell the art they feature because they do not think you should have to make six figures to be able to enjoy great art. Another perk of coming by opening night is they also have the majority of the POPzilla Artists from the current show in attendance, so it’s very possible to have your art signed in person.

Also taking place the same evening as the opening night reception on May 9th is the Art Crawl Experience, also known as ACE. After checking out the POPzilla show, visit this most excellent art festival as Orange County artists of all trades take over downtown Anaheim with music, food and even more art. The ACE stretches over numerous city blocks from the Rothick Art Haus on Harbor all the way to the new, must see Anaheim Packing House on Anaheim Blvd. Together with POPzilla and the ACE, it is truly an evening not to be missed.

Hulk Smashes On Rolling Stone’s Cover


He’s big, he’s green, he’s ill-tempered  – and for the first time since 1971, he’s on the cover of Rolling Stone. As the Rolling Stone cover story puts it: “The Hulk is the breakout star of the Avengers movies, breaking stuff for all us sinners, hulking out for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe.”


The new issue which was released on April 24th, goes deep on both the Hulk and the real people in his sizable shadow. Senior Writer Brian Hiatt hung out in New York with Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner (and via motion-capture, the Hulk) in May 1st’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron and on Disney’s Burbank lot with Joss Whedon, the movie’s writer and director. Hulk co-creator Stan Lee and Incredible Hulk TV show executive producer Kenneth Johnson, among others, also chime in.

Tomorrowland: See The Origins of Plus Ultra


On Twitter Tomorrowland director Brad Bird shared this video which offers a look at the origins of Plus Ultra.

Bird added that there are no spoilers here, this is supplemental material. In addition, Walt Disney Pictures also brought online a new promo which points fans to the official site at TakeMeTomorrowland.com.

Disney announced earlier this week that a special presentation of the film, featuring more than six minutes of footage to be introduced by Bird, will screen exclusively in IMAX theaters domestically and in select international markets beginning May 1. The extended first look of Tomorrowland will screen directly prior to Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and will play for the duration of that film’s run in IMAX.


From Disney comes two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, hitting theaters May 22, a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award-winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world – and them – forever.

Featuring a screenplay by “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, Tomorrowland promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.

The film also stars Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson.

Tomorrowland is produced by Damon Lindelof, Brad Bird and Jeffrey Chernov and directed by Brad Bird, with John Walker, Bernard Bellew, Jeff Jensen and Brigham Taylor serving as executive producers.

First Look At Jared Leto As The Joker In Suicide Squad


Warner Bros. Pictures and director David Ayer surprised fans today with a first look at Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker in David Ayer’s (Fury, End of Watch) Suicide Squad adaptation!

“The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J!” Ayer wrote on Twitter.

Created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru back in 1959, the Suicide Squad team has included countless DC villains among its ranks, including Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn. The CW’s “Arrow” introduced their own version of the team in the most recent season of the series and the recent animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham, offered another version of the team.

Leto joins a cast that includes two-time Academy Award nominee Will Smith (The Pursuit of Happyness, Focus) as Deadshot; Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop, Easy Money) as Rick Flagg; Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus) as Harley Quinn; Jai Courtney (Divergent, The Water Diviner) as Captain Boomerang; Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina, upcoming Pan) as Enchantress; and two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Prisoners) as Amanda Waller. Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Raymond Olubowale, and Common are also attached to the film in still-unconfirmed roles.

Written and directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad is setting up shop in Toronto, Canada at their Pinewood extension. Following two months of pre-production, the film will shoot from April until September for an August 5, 2016 release.

Black Mass Trailer


Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed the trailer for director Scott Cooper’s crime drama Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Jesse Plemons, Corey Stoll, Rory Cochrane, Sienna Miller and Adam Scott. Black Mass is opening in theaters on September 18.

In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.


“He could be charming. He could be ruthless. He was like a cobra—you never knew where he could strike,” director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) said previously of Bulger, who was imprisoned with two life sentences in November of 2013. “A lot of people on set knew Whitey intimately. They got chills at (Depp’s) resemblance. Some of them couldn’t even look at him. It’s easy to be the mustache twirling villain but this performance couldn’t be further from that. He is truly gifted.”
