Holey Moley: 12 Shazam! Easter Eggs

After 80 years, a name change and a variety of publishers, Billy Batson finally has his own feature length movie. Even better, it’s a movie that’s remarkable true to the comics. Shazam! takes heavy inspiration from Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s Shazam: Origins and is packed full of Easter eggs to boot. 

DC wants to share a few of them with you, now that the movie’s been in theaters a week. However, if you haven’t seen Shazam! yet, be aware that there are spoilers ahead!

Now, let’s dig into some of Shazam!’s more intriguing hidden (and not-so-hidden) gems by clicking HERE.

Ready Player One: Your Ultimate Guide To All The Pop-Culture References

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Ready Player One.

Steven Spielberg‘s futuristic adventure Ready Player One isn’t just an FX-heavy blockbuster. It’s also a visual encyclopedia collecting several decades’ worth of geek culture. 

Adapted from the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline, the film takes place in the far-off year of 2045, when humans like hero Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) spend all their time in a digital virtual-reality realm called the OASIS. Within this world, they can freely indulge their obsessions with the movies, TV shows, and video games of the distant past … the “distant past” in this case being primarily the ’80s and ’90s. Almost every frame of Ready Player One is filled with one (and often many more) references to our collective pop-culture history. 

The Yahoo Entertainment team put together this list of the 80-plus references they spotted in Ready Player One. Check out the list HERE.

Monsters University: Pixar Reveals Easter Eggs & In-Jokes

Fans of Disney Pixar’s feature films love to scour the screen in search of the Hidden Gems the filmmakers sneak into each film: WALL•E’s explorations uncover a Mike Wazowski antenna ball, paying homage to Monsters, Inc., and in Up, the classic Luxo Jr. ball can be seen in the girl’s bedroom as Carl Fredricksen’s house flies by her window. Disney Pixar’s Monsters University features a few such gems, three of which are revealed here:

A113 – The School of Scaring classroom number is A113, which refers to the former classroom of John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter and Andrew Stanton at CalArts. The number makes an appearance in every Pixar feature film.

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

Pizza Planet – The Pizza Planet truck is in the driveway of the JOX fraternity house when Mike is riding Archie the Scare Pig down Greek Row. The Pizza Planet truck, which first made an appearance in “Toy Story,” has made a cameo in nearly every Pixar feature film.

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

Luxo – The Pixar Luxo ball is in graffiti on the wall behind Claire Wheeler and Brock Pearson during their introduction to the Scare Games’ first challenge. Pixar Animation Studio’s groundbreaking short film “Luxo Jr.” was the first computer animated short film released by Pixar during its first year as a studio in 1986.
