Lightning McQueen's Racing Days Are Numbered In 'Cars 3' Trailer

Image
His days of racing are numbered in Pixar's Cars 3, I am of course talking about Lightning McQueen. In the third instalment of the Cars franchise, it looks like McQueen is at the swan song of his career, with a new kid on block, Jackson Storm, people are questioning if he is staying.

The studio has released a trailer for the animated talking-car film, which does indeed show us that McQueen's career is going in a different momentum altogether.


Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!

Cars 3 stars Owen Wilson as McQueen and will have Armie Hammer as Jackson Storm…

Jason Momoa Shares Excitement For 'Aquaman' And Its Tone

Image
After this year's Wonder Woman and Justice League have come out, we will have Aquaman as our next DC film to look forward to. Starring Jason Momoa as the titular role and having James Wan write and direct with a stellar cast to boot it is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated films to come out next year.

Speaking to GQ Magazine, Momoa was asked about a few Aquaman-related topics, mainly playing the role and what sort of tone we will see in the film.

When Aquaman comes out it will be the first big-screen live-action take on the beloved DC Comics character, so unlike with Batman and Superman, Momoa is the one to set the stage in playing the role. “We’ve never really seen anything from this guy before, so it’s fun to have a level playing field,” Momoa said. “There aren’t like four Aquamans before me. I get to set the tone for it.”

Given that Momoa himself is a multi-ethnic person, having Native American, Hawaiian, Irish, and many more ethnicities in his blood, we will see an…

The Future Of Justice Begins With 'Wonder Woman' TV Spots

Image
With the film coming out in early June, DC Films and Warner Bros. will ramp up the promotional material for Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman.

To kick off the marketing blitz, which is beginning right on time, the studio has released two new television spots for the Gal Gadot-starrer, that shows off new footage with teases for the film's villains, humour, heart, and of course Diana of Themyscira, Wonder Woman.




Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Lucy Dav…

Gal Gadot Did 'Wonder Woman' Additional Photography While Pregnant

Image
As usual with big blockbuster films like DC Films' upcoming Wonder Woman, additional photography or reshoots as it is more commonly referred to nowadays took place. For the film, it wrapped up production back in early 2016 but after the filming of Justice League, reshoots began last November.

During November Gal Gadot, who will play Wonder Woman, was pregnant and couldn't hide her baby-bump so to hide said bump, the costume designers made a small change to the iconic Wonder Woman armour, by cutting an ample triangle from the front of her suit, and replacing it with green cloth so the visual effects crew can do their magic.

With the costume altered, Gadot went to work, running, and performing fight stunts for helmer Patty Jenkins. “On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman,” Gadot said. “On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog.”

The reshoots reminded Jenkins of Gadot's strong commitment to her role. “She’s pregnant during p…
