New Podcast: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – A Podcast Preview

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was one of 2014’s most hotly-anticipated movies. That is quite a boost for the cerebral franchise that had lain dormant for 28 years before the disastrous 2001 remake. That all changed with 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes which introduced Caesar and his smart apes to a new generation of moviegoers, and excitement built in the past 3 years to launch this newest film to a strong opening and the next sequel already in development for a 2016 release. Could this newest Planet of the Apes film be the best yet? If you donate and support Now Playing in the next 2 weeks you can listen and find out!

Pre-Order Alert: Hot Toys Exclusive Star-Lord Figure

SDCC-2014-Hot Toys- Guardians of the Galaxy 04



“My name is Peter Quill.  There’s one other name you may know me by:  Star-Lord.”

No doubt, Guardians of the Galaxy has gone from Marvel’s riskiest film to date to being a sure-fire hit–the only question now is how big of a hit?  But with crowd-pleasing trailers featuring Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, Drax, and, yes, Star-Lord anticipation is high for this film.

And, of course, what would a new Marvel movie be without Hot Toys based on it?  902219-star-lord-004

Now the third of the Guardians is up for order–and there’s an exclusive edition!

Both versions of Star-Lord come with 5 pairs of gloved palms, 2 guns, a sling pack, a cassette player, and a realistic plasma orb.  But if you hurry and get the Exclusive Edition you also get handcuffs and the silver Orb we see Quill trying to steal in the trailer!

I’ve seen this figure in person at SDCC (photo above was taken by me).  The coat has amazing detail and tailoring.  The facial likeness is spot-on.  The accessories are intricite.  This is a great figure of what appears to be an amazing new character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

So what are you waiting for?  Hurry and get your order in now, before you call Sideshow to order Star-Lord and they reply “Who???  He’s sold out.”
