Pixar's 'The Good Dinosaur' Concept Art with Arlo and Spot

18 November 2014 6:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Pixar has unveiled a new piece of concept art from their prehistoric animated adventure The Good Dinosaur, featuring a new look at Arlo the Apatosaurus, voiced by Lucas Neff.

The story centers on Arlo, a teenage dinosaur who befriends a young human boy named Spot. The movie hit a snag in August 2013 when original director Bob Peterson was dismissed, which caused Pixar to push the animated adventure from its original May 30, 2014 release date all the way to November 25, 2015. Over the past year, new director Peter Sohn has been reworking the story, and while the basic premise remains the same, the filmmaker revealed to The Los Angeles Times that a lot has changed.

"The heart of the story remains the same. It's always been about this young dinosaur growing up. But the world itself has changed a lot. Nature has become a character."

Pixar's general manger Jim Morris revealed how tough »

Following yesterday's poster reveal featuring Phyllis Smith's character Sadness from Inside Out, we have four more character posters featuring Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Anger (Lewis Black), Fear (Bill Hader) and Joy (Amy Poehler).

In addition, Mashable has also debuted a brief video intro for Mindy Kaling's Disgust, and the actress herself sheds new light on her character in a brief interview. Inside Out centers on a young girl named Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwestern hometown when her father takes a new job in San Francisco. The plot follows the aforementioned emotions that reside within the "control center" of Riley's brain. Mindy Kaling reveals that her character is very protective of young Riley.

"Disgust is very protective of Riley. She has high expectations for everyone around her and isn't very patient. Disgust is also very put-together because appearances matter to her."

The McCarthys: Will You Play Ball With CBS' New Comedy?

30 October 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Much in the way that Friday Night Lights isn’t just a show about football, CBS’ The McCarthys isn’t just a show about basketball. It’s also a show about crazy people.

Thursday’s series premiere introduced viewers to the titular family, a six-piece ensemble of basketball-obsessed lunatics — save for gay son Ronny (the impossibly likable Tyler Ritter), who couldn’t shoot a basket to save his life. Even though he does in the premiere. Twice.

30 Awesome Easter Eggs Which Tie The Pixar Universe Together

21 October 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


If there’s one thing animated movies have over their live action counterparts it’s their ability to craft a meticulous attention to detail in which everything that appears on screen is there for a reason. Of all the animation studios out there, Pixar has justly earned a reputation for cramming in a wealth of hidden details for the eagle-eyed viewer to spot.

Counting up all the easter eggs in Pixar’s filmography is an immense task – considering that they already had several movies in the pipeline from day one, it’s understandable that right from the beginning they found the time to populate their films with little visual touches referencing back and forth across their body of work.

From the frequent appearance of the phrase A113, an inside joke referring to the classroom in which John Lasseter, Brad Bird and other Pixar staff were taught at the California Institute of the Arts, »

Meet Arlo in Pixar's 'The Good Dinosaur' Preview

20 October 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While fans continue to wait for the first footage from Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, Disney has released a brief preview video that shows director Peter Sohn drawing the main character, a dinosaur named Arlo, from scratch.

Peter Sohn was originally set as the co-director alongside Bob Peterson, until Peterson was removed from the project in August 2013. This lead the studio to move the release date from May 30, 2014 to November 25, 2015. Our report from August 2013 stated that Pixar was looking to replace Bob Peterson with another filmmaker, while Peter Sohn remained on as the co-director. Now it seems that Peter Sohn is taking over as the sole director on the project.

The last we heard about The Good Dinosaur was back in August, when voice cast member John Lithgow revealed that the script has received a complete rewrite, and that he is going in to record new dialogue. The story centers on a family of dinosaurs, »

Pixar's 'Inside Out' Trailer Is Here!

2 October 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first look at 11-year-old Riley back in August, Pixar has finally released the first trailer for Inside Out. The video actually begins with a montage of footage from Pixar hits such as Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Up and The Incredibles, with each scene highlighting a particular emotion. This segues nicely into the inner-workings of Riley's mind, where we meet all of the emotions that reside within her.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions »

27 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While The Good Dinosaur was originally set to be Disney Pixar's next animated adventure, that movie ran into a couple of production hiccups, which pushed Inside Out to the front of the line.

Pixar's "Good Dinosaur" Gets Re-Tooled

18 August 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This marks the first year in nearly a decade that hasn't seen the release of a Pixar animated feature. A big reason for that was due to the eighteen month delay of their proposed 2014 film "The Good Dinosaur".

At the time of the delay, the film's director Bob Peterson left the project and since then things have been dead quiet regarding the film. That is until today.

Actor John Lithgow did some voice work on the film a while back. In a new interview with Collider he confirms that due to the project being completely retooled, he will go in to record new dialogue some time in the next few weeks:

"I recorded the entire role in Good Dinosaur. They have now dismantled it and completely reimagined it, and it is a fantastic new story. So I'm gonna record again on it within the next month. Don't worry. It's coming »

Summer sitcom rewind: 'Cheers' - 'Thanksgiving Orphans'

2 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're continuing this periodic summer project where we revisit classic sitcom episode. This week, we're returning to the 1980s for the season 5 "Cheers" episode "Thanksgiving Orphans," which you can find on Netflix, coming up just as soon as we're moving into the earth tones... The short version of "Cheers": Sam Malone (Ted Danson) is a former relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, and a recovering alcoholic who bought a bar during one of his drunker periods, then kept it in sobriety. At the time of this episode, the Cheers staff includes rookie bartender Woody (Woody Harrelson), a naive kid from Hanover, Indiana; single mom waitress Carla Tortelli (Rhea Perlman), as abrasive as she is fertile; and waitress Diane Chambers (Shelley Long), a pretentious aging graduate student who has been Sam's on-again, off-again love interest.
