Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us with high resolution versions of several stills recently released for Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4, 2014). As usual, the stills have been added to the beginning of our gallery embedded below. Click on any of the thumbnails to see an expanded version, then click on the resize arrows to view it at its original resolution.
Ahead of any official announcement (or known release date), we have learned of the bonus features that will accompany Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World when it arrives on Blu-ray/DVD (pre-order) courtesy of the British Board of Film Classification. The details can be found below.
In addition to the several new high-res stills and synopses we received earlier today from Walt Disney Studios from their upcoming 2014 slate, we also received a brand new still from the newest Pixie Hollow franchise film, Tinker Bell’s The Pirate Fairy, available to own on Blu-ray on April 1, 2014 (available for pre-order). The new image, which features Tinker Bell confronting her captor, the pirate fairy Zarina, has been added to the beginning of our stills gallery below.
As part of its preview for its upcoming 2014 slate of films, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with newly released high-resolution stills and first looks at several of its projects, including the official synopsis for McFarland, starring Kevin Costner. Details and images follow:
Muppets Most Wanted (March 21, 2014)
Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling our grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine — the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit — and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
Much as it did with the Blu-ray release of Monsters University, bundling either a Mike Wazowski or Randall Boggs ‘Disney Infinity’ figure along with the 2D version of the film, Walmart has announced it will do the same with Frozen when it releases on March 18, 2014. Although no image is currently available (see the Monsters University items as a sample), separate listings for pre-orders have been put up for both Anna and Elsa.
Walt Disney Studios opened its doors to the public this week for its exclusive early nightly screenings of Saving Mr. Banks which is currently in limited release in select cities with a wide release scheduled for December 20, 2013. The engagement offers the public a rare glimpse into the production studios which is an opportunity rarely afforded — outside of being personally invited, this is usually limited to the Adventures By Disney Backstage Magic Tour or occasional tours conducted by Disney D23, for which one must be a member. After a screening of the film (along with a sizzle reel of the film’s star-studded premiere), guests were invited to visit several key sites located on the Studios campus, many of which had a direct part in the production of Disney’s Mary Poppins. We were invited for an exclusive tour of the locations featuring props, sets, wardrobe and more from Saving Mr. Banks as well as other celebrated artifacts before the public had the chance to see them and are pleased to share photos and video from our experience.
As a quick follow-up to its listing for Frozen on Blu-ray (along with an apparent exclusive on the 3D version), Walmart is now listing Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks with a release date of March 18, 2014 as well. Perhaps most interesting, however, is that not only does this come ahead of any official announcement, but it appears the listing is currently only available through the direct link which was supplied to us by Walmart via its electronic catalog — it does not yet appear to show up in any search results, which may cast further doubt on whether the release date has any legitimacy at this point.
Walt Disney Studios has just released its first trailer for its upcoming sports film, Million Dollar Arm, which you can find embedded below.
