Mattel's 'Cars 3' line, from miniature vehicles of old and new characters to playsets to larger-scale interactive toys: Exclusive first look
Soon, thanks to Lego, you can smash and rebuild Lightning McQueen on your own. To accompany release of Cars 3, the toy-brick mavens have 10 new sets for builders of all ages available May 1, and Yahoo Movies has your exclusive first look.
Mark Hamill loves The Last Jedi's trailer. Cast Away or Kong: Skull Island's… not so much. Yahoo Movies caught up with Luke Skywalker at Star Wars Celebration Orlando last week and we asked him what he thought of the first preview of the latest sequel. "I loved it," Hamill told us, adding that he was especially happy that director Rian Johnson kept fans guessing. And with that, the (maybe?) last Jedi launched into a rant, which you can watch above, about his disdain for spoilers and trailers that give too much away.
Of all the characters to emerge from the Star Wars animated series, none has resonated more than Ahsoka Tano. With Lucasfilm about to plot out the next standalone films, Ahsoka has risen to the top of the wish list for many fans, including the actress who defines the role. "I would love an Ahsoka movie, not only as the voice of Ahsoka, but just as an Ahsoka fan," Eckstein told Yahoo Movies at Star Wars Celebration Orlando.
Two things we just learned about Mark Hamill: he hates spoilers and he’s an avowed liar. During Friday’s Last Jedi panel at Star Wars Celebration, Hamill came clean about his truth-telling… or lack thereof. “I lie all the time on social media,” Hamill said, gleefully acknowledging that he tweets out incorrect intel.
Luke Skywalker is all set to head down to Tosche Station for a rendezvous with Biggs, Windy, Deak, and Fixer in this exclusive first look at the latest addition to Hasbro’s premium Black Series line. Recreate one of the saga’s most famous deleted scenes: Luke watching the opening space battle unfold above Tatooine. A major upgrade over the old-school Luke/landspeeder combo, this insanely detailed, highly articulated 6-inch figure is fully accessorized for his Tatooine routine — macrobinoculars, lightsaber hilt, and slugthrower rifle, as well as floppy hat and goggles worn by Mark Hamill in scenes that George Lucas ultimately excised from Star Wars: A New Hope.
Yahoo Movies has your first look at Hot Wheels' new Biggs-mobile, which will be available this week at Star Wars Celebration, as well as a peek at Mattel's other character cars, starships, and "carships" now shipping to stores in commemorative 40th anniversary packaging.
As debate rages on about the ethical and moral ramifications of drone warfare, a new thriller starring Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, The Martian) imagines the consequences of one such strike. In Drone (watch the exclusive trailer above), Bean plays Neil, a seemingly average suburban family man whose secret day job as a military contractor includes orchestrating pilot-less air attacks.
Star Wars celebrates its 40th anniversary next month, and as long as George Lucas and his pals have been making movies set in that galaxy far, far away, Mad‘s Usual Gang of Idiots has been happily roasting the space opera. In its latest issue, the irreverent magazine is back at, taking aim at the most recent installment, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — and Yahoo Movies has your exclusive first look at the spread. Snoopy and George Lucas even make cameos.
Four confirmed as 2017 recipients of the highest honor Disney confers upon artists who have made an indelible impact on the company
Goldie Hawn has not appeared in movie since starring opposite Susan Sarandon in 2002’s The Banger Sisters. This May, however, the iconic 71-year-old actress will make her return the big screen in the R-rated action-comedy Snatched, playing a woman who reluctantly joins her ne’er-do-well daughter (Amy Schumer) for an ill-fated vacation to South America. Asked why she took such a long break from acting that many fans assumed she had retired — Hawn turned reflective.
In the late 1970s, Topps’ Star Wars line was even more popular than the trading-card titan’s signature baseball collectibles. A New Hope), The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, we have an advance look at Star Wars Topps Classic Sticker Book ($12.95), from Abrams Books, a new volume loaded with reproductions of the stickers that were included with the trading-card packs — and which lovingly adorned our Trapper Keepers back in the day. It will be available from stores and online retailers on April 4, ahead of May’s 40th anniversary of the original 1977 film and Star Wars Celebration, the fan-centric convention in Orlando that will have panels marking the milestone occasion, with scheduled appearances from luminaries such as Mark Hamill (on hand to promote The Last Jedi), Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and Jeremy “Boba Fett” Bulloch.
Aside from a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in a sizzle reel shown at Comic-Con last summer, Sylvester Stallone’s role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been shrouded in mystery. Directed James Gunn swung by the Yahoo Studios this week for a Facebook Live session to talk about both his new film The Belko Experiment (in theaters now) and the Guardians sequel (out May 5), and he dropped some tantalizing tidbits about Stallone’s top-secret role. “Look for clues and you will find out the character Sylvester Stallone plays.
“Choose life” became a motto for the 1996 film Trainspotting after its fast-living (and fast-running) lead character Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) championed the phrase while sprinting through the streets in Edinburgh in the movie’s iconic opening sequence.
Bryan Cranston earned an Oscar nomination for playing the blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in Trumbo and Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for his portrayal of President Lyndon B. Johnson in the HBO movie All the Way. If he’s looking to do another biopic, may we suggest Clint Eastwood.
As revealed in the mini-movie Gunter Babysits from the upcoming home edition of Universal’s tuneful hit, things get downright scary when the bumbling Gunter (voiced by Nick Kroll) agrees to watch the expansive brood of his duet partner Rosita (Reese Witherspoon) for the night. Gunter Babysits is one of three all-new shorts available on the digital and disc versions of Sing. There’s also Love at First Sight, in which gorilla Johnny (Taran Egerton) persuades his piano teacher, Miss Crawly (voiced by the film’s writer-director Garth Jennings), to join a dating website, and Eddie’s Life Coach, where slacker sheep Eddie (John C. Reilly) enrolls in a digital training seminar.
If Jordan Peele’s box office smash Get Out is a subversive and scary look at an interracial couple’s experience in the suburbs, then allow the upcoming dramatic comedy Little Boxes to offer a more nuanced take. (Watch the exclusive trailer above.)
Dax Shepard was in his happy place on the set of CHIPS. The actor-writer-director was three days away from wrapping the $25 million action-comedy, and he sat in his trailer recalling the many times he’d gotten to blow stuff up over the course of the film’s 45-day shoot. With each anecdote, Shepard grew more and more excited, sounding like he’s liable to break into a Michael Bay impression at any moment.
On May 25, 1977, George Lucas unleashed Star Wars on an unsuspecting planet Earth. Lucasfilm and its partners are pulling out all the stops to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film (now known as Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope). At last weekend’s New York Toy Fair, Hasbro unveiled its premium 6-inch Black Series figures based on the original, classic Kenner lineup.
Now, thanks to Lego, Yahoo Movies has some new details thanks to an exclusive sneak peek at the epic new brick set based on the film. This highly detailed Lego model with over 2,200 pieces features a hinged bow section, opening skeleton hull with decay and destruction detailing, movable rudder, collapsible main mast and two further masts, long bowsprit with crow’s nest and mast, tattered sails, detailed quarterdeck, plus a rowboat with two oars and an array of weapons and accessory elements.
Since it opened, director Mel Gibson has insisted that his Oscar-nominated Hacksaw Ridge is a “love film, not a war film.” The movie’s battle scenes are such a key ingredient and so relentlessly intense, though, that we’ll respectfully disagree. It’s in plain sight in the film’s much tamer first act, in which future WWII war hero Desmond Doss vies for the affection of the nurse Dorothy (Teresa Palmer). In the scene, Desmond just wants some sugar from his sweetheart, but it ain’t happening.
