Big Hero 6, skip
Unclear what “Big Hero 6” is other than an upcoming Disney animated film? Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure with comic-book like visuals and action. So it’s the first real Marvel/Disney collaboration—synergy—but it still sounds very much like a Disney project first and foremost. One can only assume that more corporate collaborations are to come. Imagine a day when Disney redoes the “Iron Man” franchise only in animated form. It could totally happen.

Transformers 4
For the past seven years or so, Michael Bay has focused almost exclusively on "Transformers" films, with one exception—last year's "Pain & Gain." That steroid-infused movie presented an overstimulated, sneering and cynical view of the pursuit of the American dream, following two muscleheads who scheme their way towards the life they think they should be living. Swimming in greed, murder and mayhem, the film portrayed the pursuit of material wealth as an empty endeavour, which seems a bit surprising for a filmmaker who has directed TV ads for major corporate brands and worked exclusively in the studio system. And in a strange way, "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" almost acts as an apology for "Pain & Gain," with the film presenting everything that's the best and worst of Bay's toy movies to the extreme, while proudly waving the American flag.

Transformers: Age of Extinction
There is only one reason why anybody goes to see "Transformers" films: explosions. Or for the more nerdy, the chance to see whichever [insert toy] come to life thanks to the wonders of CGI. And while that simple incentive has pushed the franchise into billion dollar territory, it's easy to forget how utterly, terribly and horribly unfunny the comedic sequences can be. Well, one clip is here from "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" to remind you of that, with another taking things in a more serious direction.

Review: 'How To Train Your Dragon 2' Is A Satisfying, If Slightly Inferior Sequel

How To Train Your Dragon 2
For most of their history, which has now lasted over 15 years ("Antz" and "The Prince Of Egypt" both debuted in 1998), DreamWorks Animation seemed to be content with making a quick buck and raising a cheap laugh. Some of their output was better than others (the original "Shrek" at one end of the scale, "Shark Tale" at the other), but even the better films paled in comparison to the output of arch-rivals Pixar, however profitable they are. These days, things have changed. For one, the company's films aren't all that profitable ("Rise Of The Guardians," "Turbo" and "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" all disappointed financially). But for another, the quality gap has closed, with Pixar hitting something of a creative rut, and DreamWorks putting out films that are as good as or better than their rivals. Well, one film, at least: 2010's "How To Train Your Dragon," which took an unpromising premise and turned it into something funny, exciting and emotionally satisfying in a way that relatively few of their films are.

Currently retired from public life, whatever that means, Shia LaBeouf is either Hollywood's greatest enigma or best prankster. Or both. At any rate, after owning the Berlin Film Festival press conference for Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac," it looked like Shia was just gonna keep on truckin', working, making weird and possibly plagiarized art, and generally continue to upend whatever notions of decorum are affixed to young actors. But it seems he is taking a step back for a moment.

Silicon Valley
Earlier today it was revealed that producer Scott Rudin was bringing the nerd battle between Sega and Nintendo to the big screen with "Console Wars," roping in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to write and direct. If you want your fill of nerds and technology a little bit quicker, Rudin and HBO have a fix on the way with "Silicon Valley," but the most important name behind it is this one: Mike Judge.

How To Train Your Dragon 2
In the age of quick turnaround sequels, the four year wait for "How To Train Your Dragon 2" seems like an eon. But now a bonafide franchise—not only with a big screen followup, but a small screen offshoot too on Cartoon Network—DreamWorks is ready to cash in the success of the first movie. But can movie magic erupt like so much fire from the dragon's belly twice?

Eric Roberts Gets Stitched To 'The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)'; T.J. Miller Joins 'Transformers 4' & More

It's not really a surprise that Eric Roberts has signed to star in the horror sequel no one cares about (do they?) "The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)." After all, this is the guy who makes a movie more frequently than people take showers (seriously, look at his IMDb page) and has no quality barometer at all.
