Four gorgeous posters are here for Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory.
Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?
Finding Nemo won the 2003 Academy Award for best animated feature; the film was nominated for three additional Oscars (original screenplay, original score, sound editing). It was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for best motion picture–comedy or musical.
In 2008, the American Film Institute named Finding Nemo among the top 10 greatest animated films ever made. »

Andrew Stanton returns to animation (following John Carter) to direct the new movie, which focuses on Ellen DeGeneres' Dory as she tries to find out about her own past and family. Naturally, Nemo and his dad, Marlin (Albert Brooks) are on hand to help.
Also in the voice cast this time are Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Ed O'Neill, Willem Dafoe, Kaitlin Olsen and Ty Burrell. And the studio released a quartet of new posters for the movie overnight.
Note that this have the American release date on them - we get the film in the UK on July 29th, so we've got »
Despite the fact Andrew Stanton’s long-awaited animated sequel is arriving a full 13 years after its beloved predecessor, only six months have lapsed for aquatic life under the sea, and today’s series of posters for Finding Dory prove that Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful explorer is still as playful as ever.
Keeping up her habit of swimming (and swimming and swimming), the images are as much a showcase of Pixar’s vibrant rendition of the deep blue as they are a game of hide-and-seek.
Returning along DeGeneres for the adventure are Albert Brooks and Hayden Rolence – replacing Alexander Gould from the 2003 original – and it’s only when Dory catches sight of manta rays migrating home while attending a school trip with Nemo that she sparks a burning desire to find her wayward parents. It’s a desire she didn’t realise she had in the first place, of course, and Finding Dory »

It.s always sad when we lose a great talent in the movie industry. While Daniel Gerson was not exactly a household name, he was, nonetheless, part of creating some of the most memorable animated films of recent years. As a writer, Gerson had screenplay credits for several of Disney and Pixar.s biggest hits including Monsters, Inc. and its sequel, as well as Big Hero 6. Unfortunately, we will be missing his talents going forward as Daniel Gerson passed away February 6 following a battle with brain cancer. He was only 49 years old. Gerson leaves behind a wife of 20 years, Beau Stacom, as well as two children, Claire and Asher. According to the New York Times obituary, the writer died peacefully in his home in Los Angeles. Beginning in 2001, Dan Gerson began working with Disney/Pixar by co-writing the screenplay for Monsters, Inc. along with Pixar heavyweight Andrew Stanton. In »
Due to hit theatres in July, the Welsh thesp didn’t disclose which character – or should we say aquatic animal – he’ll be voicing in Andrew Stanton’s follow-up, with his simple quote from the podcast being: “Finding Nemo 2 should be coming out at some point… which I’m in.”
No word yet from Disney and/or Pixar to confirm Sheen’s place among the cast, though now that his involvement is all but out in the open, an official announcement should be imminent. Mind you, given that he referred to Stanton’s sequel as Finding Nemo 2, don’t hold your breath for it being a major part.
Either way, that’ll have »

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »

In what is essentially a motion poster, the clip features a confused Dory swimming around a 3D rendition of the sequel’s title, and if there was ever any doubt that Andrew Stanton’s long-awaited follow-up would dial back the clumsiness of DeGeneres’ titular fish, today’s teaser ought to put those fears to bed.
Picking up a full six months after the 2003 original, Finding Dory introduces us to a time and place when Dory has settled into life living with Albert Brooks’ clownfish and their aquatic neighbors. But after agreeing to partake in a class trip with Nemo, one which has her lay eyes on manta rays migrating home, our protagonist discovers a burning desire to locate her wayward parents, and ultimately jog that unreliable memory of hers. »

Ever wondered why movie trailers, even for films that are mere months away, often end saying “Coming Soon” or giving an arbitrary release month? The trailer editor’s just put an awful lot of effort into making you want to check out the film in question by revealing its big secrets and misselling what it really is, the least they could do is tell you when you’ll finally get to see it.
Well, that’s because, for all the tooting of the horn from Marvel and DC as they reveal slates stretching into the next decade, release dates are always subject to change, with movies shifting from one weekend to another even after the cameras have stopped rolling.
And sometimes it’s even more serious than that – thanks to production issues, fear of immense competition or a studio being unsure of what to do with a project, »
