Who’s in the mood for swordplay, dragons, adorable baby birds, and cool cars? Today’s Movie Morsels has ’em all! With a new video look at the making of Assassin’s Creed, a sneak peek at the new Pete’s Dragon trailer, the latest Fast 8 featurette, as well as featurette on Steven Spielberg’s new children’s fantasy The BFG and more!
If you were at this year’s explosive E3, lucky you! You got to view an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of the hotly anticipated Assassin’s Creed adaptation, with footage of star Michael Fassbender (“Fassy” to his friends). And if you weren’t there? No worries! We’ve got said featurette fresh from the Expo below. Enjoy!
Directed by Justin Kurzel, Assassin’s Creed co-stars Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, and Brendan Gleeson. It takes theaters everywhere by storm on December 21.
Having seen Pixar’s latest animated short Piper, I can attest that it is indeed just as adorable as you’ve heard. And it’s the perfect lead-in to the studio’s new animated feature Finding Dory (which is also getting rave reviews). But see for yourself below. We’ve got the very first clip from the film, featuring its titular star: a newborn baby bird taking his first tentative steps towards the surf. Awwww…
Eh? What’s that? You want more adorableness? Alrighty then, here’s a new featurette on Steven Spielberg’s new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s fable The BFG. In the video, the film’s young star, Ruby Barnhill, talks about her favorite moments from the July 1 Disney release…

Okay, fine, I can see you still haven’t had enough of Disney kids’ films. Fortunately, today sees the release of a new trailer for the studio’s remake of its 1977 animated and live-action musical Pete’s Dragon. But until you get a chance to see Elliot 2.0 in all his green dragon glory, here’s a sneak peek of the August 12th release to tide you over…
Directed by David Lowery, Pete’s Dragon stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, and Karl Urban.
While we’re grateful for the steady deluge of Fast 8 footage and photos coming from the film’s sets in Iceland and Cuba, most of the these goodies have come to us via Instagram. The latest vid, however, is on Facebook, which means we can’t show it to you here. So check it out on the Fast 8 Facebook page, okay? It offers a full video tour of the next Fast and the Furious installment’s super-cool cars.
F. Gary Gray directs Fast 8, which features the welcome return of Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Kurt Russell, and Jason Statham, as well as my personal favorite: Tokyo Drift‘s Lucas Black!
