Pixar recently announced that there will be a Toy Story Halloween TV special called, Toy Story of Terror that will air on ABC later this year. Now, Pixar dropped the first image from the thirty minute special. Along with the first look, we get more info on the plot of Toy Story of Terror.

“Bonnie is on a road trip to go see grandma with her mom and the toys are in the trunk,” producer Galyn Susman says. “Mom gets a flat tire and they have to spend the night at a motel and all kinds of chaos ensues.”

“There was some support to make a scary, but not necessarily Halloween-themed half-hour Toy Story special for television,” director Angus MacLane says. “There was some concern early on about not making it too scary for kids. I think we’ve done a good job of balancing staying true to Toy Story and staying true to the genre. As far as adults are concerned, I’ve always thought that we make these movies for ourselves. I think it’s funny and like the other Toy Story films, I think there is plenty of stuff in there that only adults will get.”

“This is the first time that they’ve been on a road trip away from the house, so we’re exploring the relationships and the things that might come up on a road trip with toys, some of  whom have lived and worked together for years, while others have only just met,” MacLane says. “They definitely have a family dynamic that is fun to see now that they’re all together on one road trip.”

Toy Story of Terror will bring back Tom Hanks (Woody), Tim Allen (Buzz Lightyear), Don Rickles (Mr. Potato Head), Wallace Shawn (Rex), and Joan Cusack (Jessie) along with Timothy Dalton (Mr. Pricklepants), Kristen Schaal (Trixie), and Carl Weathers as Combat Carl.

Marvel Studios brain trust and head honcho, Kevin Feige rarely speaks about specific actors that he would love to have in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but during an interview with Collider, Feige made an exception for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. I’m a gigantic fan of his, I think he’s an incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven’t really met him. I don’t really know him – but I think he’s an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature. He’s awesome in Pain & Gain, he was great in G.I. Joe, he’s really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter’s always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.

Johnson has already put it out there that we would be interested in the role of Luke Cage, but at this point in time, there is nothing announced for the project. Even though Feige has expressed interest in Johnson, I doubt anything is actually happening anytime soon(or is it?). Considering DC ComicsLobo went no where, I’m guessing Johnson would be open to the first studio with the right role for him.  Johnson is definitely a “force of nature” and he has one of the most charismatic onscreen presence in film today. I would be very disappointed if Johnson doesn’t make it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe sooner or later.

Which character would you love to see Dwayne Johnson play?

Last night, J.J. Abrams dropped by The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote the release of his newest film, Star Trek Into Darkness and like most interviews, the topic of Star Wars came up and took over the interview. Hilarity ensues.

It looks like NBC is really going after the geek demographic with their new television series, She-Ra starring Australian pop sensation, Kylie Minogue. Plus, Alfie Allen AKA Theon Greyjoy as “Skelly” makes this a must-watch.

Way back in early 2011, there was a outcry in Detroit to honor one of it’s finest in statue form in their beloved city. That person in question was none other than Robocop. Since then, the Robocop statue project has gotten national attention and after a successful Kickstarter fundraiser (raised over $67,000) by Imagination Station Detroit, there is a ten foot tall scale statue of Robocop ready to go. All that needs to be done is for the city of Detroit to find a proper location for the statue and to bronze it so it will last forever for future generation of fans to enjoy. Imagination Station Detroit is hoping that the bronze Robocop statue will be complete by mid-2014. Keep up the great work!

The duo of J.J. Wyman and J.J. Abrams were responsible for the sci-fi epic, Fringe. Now, they are back with a new series set in year 2048 called, Almost Human.

This action-packed police drama set 35 years in the future centers around the unlikely partnership between a part-machine cop and a part-human robot.

Executive-produced by Emmy Award winner J.J. Abrams (”Fringe,” “Lost,” the “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible” franchises) and creator J.H. Wyman (”Fringe,” “The Mexican”) and starring Karl Urban (”Star Trek”), Michael Ealy (”Sleeper Cell,” “Common Law”) and Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor (”Six Feet Under,”), ALMOST HUMAN is a high-tech, high-stakes action drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely partnership is forged when a part-machine cop (Urban) is forced to pair with a part-human robot (Ealy) as they fight crime and investigate a deeper cover-up in a futuristic new world.

Almost Human is definitely on my “must-watch” list for the new Fox Fall season, especially with Karl Urban on board. Hopefully, it will be easier to keep Almost Human on the air than Fringe.
