Welcome back to Disney In Depth for the “top five” of a special two-part edition that explores the movies that deserve theme park attractions. Just in case you missed the previous edition, you can check it out here.
Before exploring the “most deserving” films, we cannot ignore the movies that would least work as attractions. Among them are great films and some bad ones, too.
The $10 t-shirt deal of the day over at TeeFury is called “Robot City” by Drew Wise and features popular robots from Doctor Who, Star Wars, and more in a cityscape (see if you can identify each robot!).
The sale began at Teefury today, Sunday, August 19, 2012, at midnight EST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it will not be sold on the site for $10 anymore, though it might continue into the next day for $13 (look for the After Hours bar at the top).
San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon may be the greatest gathering of heroes, villains, and all other pop culture-related shows, but it’s the Hero Complex that’s the one true geek-related film festival. Since its inception in 2009, the LA Times’ Hero Complex Film Festival – lead by LA Times writer Geoff Boucher – has screened films like Batman Begins,Star Trek, the first two Iron Man films, and Dick Tracy.
Now, the list of films that will be screened during the festival has been released and it’s quite a compilation of geek favorites.
You may not know the name Brad Hansen, but you should. Hansen is the creator of the Lion King/Dark Knight Rises mash-up trailer The Lion King Rises that premiered last week (watch it here). The video currently has over one million hits and rising every day.
By popular demand Hansen has taken the other most notable movie trailer to premiere in recent weeks, Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien spiritual prequel Prometheus, and merged it with a sweet-natured Pixar flick from several years ago. The result is WALL-ETHEUS!
The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced the items to be included in their 2011 commemorative stamp program, which includes five new Pixar stamps.
Several Disney-Pixar movie characters are part of the five different designs that make up the 20-stamp pane Send A Hello collection: Lightning McQueen and Mater from Cars; Remy the rat and Linguini from Ratatouille; Buzz Lightyear and two of the green, three-eyed aliens from Toy Story; Carl Fredricksen and Dug from Up; and the robot WALL*E from Wall*E.
The Send a Hello “Forever” stamp will go on sale on August 19, 2011.
