With the movie less than a month away, the promotion will be coming at us with more heat than Director Fury on a bad hair day (he’s bald, they’re all bad hair days). Here’s the first extended clip to be released from Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
In it, Cap and Black Widow infiltrate an ocean liner taken over by Batroc. Obviously, the four minute look inside contains spoilers. If you want to avoid any of those, you’ll just have to wait until the movie hits theaters April 4!
Pretty good. I like seeing the team at work. What did you think?
The Pet Collective continues its series of Disney films retold starting kittens! And since, kittens are cute and fluffy, who can resist right? I certainly can’t. Their latest foray is Beauty and the Beast as told by an 8-year old and featuring very cute kittens and lots of paper cutouts.
Could you resist?
A new TV trailer is out for “Muppets Most Wanted.” Apparently Adele Dazeem is a movie critic now. I wonder what Miss Piggy thinks?
Adele Dazeem, of course, is the ‘persona’ created by John Travolta’s infamous flub of Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars. She’s been getting around, but if anyone is excused in using her for promotional purposes, it’s Disney Marketing, right?
“Muppets Most Wanted” hits theaters March 21st. Are you planning on seeing it?
Walt Disney Animation Studios (WDAS) carries a heavy load when it comes to the legacy of Walt Disney, his brother, and the early pioneers of feature animation. After Walt died the studios has experienced a few ups and downs both artistically (The Black Cauldron) and at box office (Treasure Planet). But they’ve had high points too. Beauty & The Beast even earned a nod for Best Picture at the Academy Awards leading the academy to create a special category just for animated features. The problem was WDAS, the studio that inspired the Oscar, had never actually won that category. That is until Disney Frozen took home the golden statue for Best Animated Picture at this year’s ceremony.
As you might expect, this has significantly elevated the mood at WDAS. The New York Times’ Brooks Barnes has a great piece on the reaction inside the Mickey’s hat building on the Burbank lot. It was a time to look forward, and a time to reflect on where they had come from:
But rather than dwelling on all of that, Disney’s animators on Monday ultimately started partying hearty. Staff members rowdily posed with the Oscar statuettes, while two voice actors from “Frozen,” Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff, gave bear hugs to Mr. Lasseter, who snapped photos with his iPhone.
