After already conquering the Us box office, this week finally sees Pixar’s long-anticipated sequel Finding Dory arrive on UK shores, and to celebrate the release Flickering Myth’s Scott J. Davis had the chance to sit down with the film’s writer-director Andrew Stanton and producer Lindsey Collins to discuss the sequel and what the future holds for Pixar.
Thirteen years is a long time to wait for a sequel but from Stanton’s point of view, it wasn’t because there wasn’t an appetite from the audience for a sequel it was more that he and Pixar never thought there was story to tell until around the time of Finding Nemo’s 3D release in 2011 when it all changed:
“Everyone takes that tactic like we were truly waiting all that time but the truth is I was never going back – I had no intention of going back to the ocean. »

Hollywood is vexed by the lack of home runs at the box office this summer. But there is a bright spot amidst countless forecasts of trouble for the film industry. Two of the biggest smashes of the season so far, Disney’s “Finding Dory” and Universal Studios’ “The Secret Life of Pets,” are a reminder that animation is the one genre that seems to be unstoppable at the movies.
Beyond their reliance on pixelated performances, “Dory” and “Pets” share another similarity. They are both stories centered on animals that yammer about their personal lives, bicker and act like human beings. Against a questionable year of ticket sales, where even movie stars like Johnny Depp and George Clooney have come up short, audiences seem to prefer their personalities with tails.
These cuddly creatures are serving as an antidote to dark times in the world. Some executives in Hollywood are starting to »

If a company gets big enough, it will eventually start making movies — just ask WWE, Amazon and now BuzzFeed. Warner Bros. is partnering with the website to develop “Brother Orange,” a dramatization of an incident involving BuzzFeed editor Matt Stopera that began when his iPhone was stolen and turned him into a celebrity in China. “Broad City” co-creator Ilana Glazer and Ellen DeGeneres will co-executive produce along with Stopera and Jeff Kleeman.
Over the course of more than a year, Stopera’s phone made its way across the continent and eventually to China, where photos of the eponymous man (real name Li Hongjun) started flooding his photo stream. After several stories on the bizarre incident, which went viral both domestically and in China, the two met up, became friends and appeared on “Ellen” together. »

Hollywood can be a greedy and fickle creature at times. 2016 has so far been an excellent example of what happens when audiences grow tired of hollow sequels and repeated tropes of the past. Originality is unfortunately becoming a rare thing in the modern age of reboots, remakes, prequels and video game adaptations. This has led to a sad realisation that genuine greatness comes few and far between in mainstream Hollywood these days. However, with Finding Dory comes the not-so-surprising news that Pixar have managed to bring us cinematic gold yet again.
Dory’s second adventure does a fantastic job of proving that the innovative animation studio still has plenty of originality left up its sleeve. Following on from last year’s painstakingly emotional masterpiece Inside Out, we are »
