This year, however, there are some very serious contenders for the coveted statue, and with Finding Dory -- Pixar's biggest movie of 2016 -- surprisingly left off the list of nominees, just two of the nominated films are from the Mouse House.  Will the two nominated Disney features split votes causing an outlier to win the statue?

Helen Mirren’s Crucial Role In The Fate Of The Furious Has Finally Been Revealed

15 February 2017 2:39 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Charlize Theron isn’t the only Oscar-winning actress that the Toretto crew will have to contend with in The Fate of the Furious.

After expressing her surprisingly deep love for the series, Helen Mirren joined F. Gary Gray’s action sequel – formerly known as simply Fast 8 – in a mystery role last year and ever since, fans have been clamoring to find out exactly who she’ll be playing come April 14th. Well, wonder no more, as Yahoo! has confirmed that Mirren will portray the mother of Owen and Deckard Shaw, and is considered crucial in the plot.

Now that Vin Diesel’s musclebound Dominic Toretto has gone rogue, the remainder of Universal’s crew is forced to set aside old squabbles and partner with Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) if they’re to stand any chance of taking down Charlize Theron’s Cipher. That ought to ensure Mirren has plenty of »

Karyn Kusama On Making Horror Films and Fighting Evil in the Age of Trump

15 February 2017 10:59 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one is more surprised by Karyn Kusama’s second act as a horror filmmaker than Kusama herself. Best known in the early aughts for her girl power-driven, high energy offerings “Girlfight” and the Charlize Theron-starring “Aeon Flux” film adaptation, Kusama dipped a toe into horror with 2009’s icky-great “Jennifer’s Body.” It was the perfect feature to kick off the next part of her career, blending her desire to tell female-centric stories alongside genuinely gag-inducing scenes that would feel at home in any horror film.

With 2015’s lauded “The Invitation,” Kusama completed the leap, helming the psychological thriller with white-knuckle ease, a horror story about broken relationships and broken people gussied up into a cross-genre nailbiter. In short, it was scary. And making that kind of film instantly changed the expectations regarding the kind of films that Kusama wanted to make in the future.

Great Job, Internet!: Here are the post-apocalyptic death machines of Fury Road but with googly Pixar eyes

14 February 2017 11:50 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Much has been made about the dark trailer for this summer’s Cars 3, which appears to be about the death of sentient car Lightning McQueen. Why a light-hearted series about talking cars is now about the unflinching certainty that all organic life must someday die remains unclear, but these are gritty times, and they demand gritty children’s movies.

However, things could take a darker turn still.

That’s right: Mater, Lightning, Pincohle, D’Antoni The Zamboni, and the rest of the gang could be barreling through not a clean motorway but an irradiated water-less hellscape populated by cultists, scavengers, and freaks.

Great Job, Internet!: Theory: Vin Diesel’s Fast & Furious character is actually a Terminator

13 February 2017 10:28 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With its fifth installment, The Fast And Furious franchise definitively ditched the frosted tips of its origins by transforming its central gang of drag-racers into a band of master criminals with cars as their secret weapon. Also, The Rock. Under the direction of Justin Lin and James Wan, the film’s respective sixth and seventh entries dialed up the absurd, over-the-top action, establishing the franchise as a go-to for thrilling, high-octane stunts, pulp storytelling, and inspired casting.

The trailer for its latest sequel, The Fate Of The Furious, confounded many upon its release last year. In it, Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto, the gang’s leader who consistently preaches about the importance of loyalty and family, has turned on his “Fast family.” Frantic fans began theorizing that Dom was in deep cover, or that maybe his mind was being controlled by Charlize Theron’s villain.

Han Solo Targets Westworld Star Thandie Newton

10 February 2017 5:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With filming already under way on Disney and LucasFilm's latest Star Wars spin-off, Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, the cast continues to be filled out. Today we have word that Westworld star Thandie Newton has entered negotiations to join the cast. As is the case with most of the recent casting additions, no details were given as to which character Thandie Newton may be playing, but her casting may hint at a recent character rumor.

Variety broke the news on today's casting, which comes just two days after the site broke the news that Fleabag star/creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge will join the cast as a CGI character that is said to be quite important to the film. Unfortunately, the site has no details about Thandie Newton's character, but back in October, a report claimed that three actresses of color, Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Zoe Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road »
