RelatedLast Ship Renewed for Season 3 at TNT
TNT has ordered an additional five episodes of Major Crimes, TVLine has learned, bringing its Season 4 total to 23, the largest in the procedural’s history. (Seasons 2 and 3 each had 19 episodes, while the series’ freshman outing consisted of 10.)

Box Office Sabermetrics is a weekly column that will attempt to apply the statistical analysis Sabermetrics, used in Baseball, to the box office results each weekend.
There are a few things of note going on in the top 10 this past weekend, first and foremost that Straight Outta Compton just made a ton of money. Like, nearly-twice-its-budget-just-domestically ton of money. It’s set the new domestic box office record for an R-Rated opening in August. That’s great for many reasons: a bright future for its young stars, F. Gary Gray is relevant again, and hopefully this will encourage more high-profile films about the rap and hip-hop community.
But looking down the list, something is amiss with the low receipts for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which means that’s two straight franchise starters that have bombed for star Armie Hammer. A very disconcerting question arises: Is Armie Hammer suffering from the Taylor Kitsch syndrome? »

During the big Star Wars movie news on Saturday at the D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim, Calif., Disney also announced a line-up of new attractions and entertainment coming to its theme parks around the world.
Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced to an audience of more than 7,500 fans that Star Wars-themed lands will be coming to Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla., allowing Star Wars fans to step into the stories from a galaxy far, far away.
Ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life in the two parks include creating Disney’s largest single themed land expansions ever at 14 acres each, transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' box office: Bigger domestic flop than expected? Before I address the box office debacle of Warner Bros.' The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I'd like remark upon the fact that 2015 has been a notable year at the North American box office. That's when the dinosaurs of Jurassic World smashed Hulk and his fellow Halloween-costumed Marvel superheroes of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And smashed them good: $636.73 million vs. $457.52 million. (See also: 'Jurassic World' beating 'The Avengers' worldwide and domestically?) At least in part for sentimental (or just downright morbid) reasons – Paul Walker's death in a car accident in late 2013 – Furious 7 has become by far the highest-grossing The Fast and the Furious movie in the U.S. and Canada: $351.03 million.

We’ve known for a while that Toy Story 4 is on the way, and that John Lasseter is back directing alongside Inside Out’s Josh Cooley. Even the fact that Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are scripting the film – Pixar’s first stab at a Toy Story romantic comedy – has gotten out. Lasseter took the stage at D23 to fill in a few more details.Mentioning that some of the main original Toy Story team (Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich) had sworn not to make a new film unless a really good story struck them, one that was worthy to follow the trilogy. The very idea popped into their heads during a meeting for a different film. So Lasseter and Stanton started working out the concept (without telling anyone else at the studio, or Disney), with Stanton writing a treatment."I'm going to bring out the director, »
Disney’s Bob Iger announced that the company will introduce two “Star Wars”-themed lands in Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., and Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla., during Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday afternoon.
“We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single-themed land expansion ever,” Iger said. “These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new ‘Star Wars’ planet.
Iger said the new areas will be “occupied by many inhabitants; humanoids, aliens and droids … the attractions, the entertainment, everything we create will be part of our storytelling. Nothing will be out of character or stray from the mythology.”
At both parks, there will be a cantina where fans can “run into all the droids and roaming beasts ‘Star Wars’ is known for,” including characters from the existing “Star Wars” saga and upcoming installment “The Force Awakens. »

We also have photos from exhibition hall displays for Moana and Finding Dory.

D23 is happening in Southern California as we speak, meaning that every major Disney property is poised to reveal nuggets of news. And while that means Marvel and Star Wars fans are hunched over their laptops waiting for reveals on the next phase of those cherished franchises, Pixar is one of the first to provide clarity on a pending sequel. We have been operating under the knowledge that the upcoming Toy Story 4 was going to be a romance. But we didn’t know if it would be between all new characters, or a budding relationship between established toys from Andy’s room. Now we know. John Lasseter spoke at D23 (via CNBC) and confirmed: It's a love story with Woody and—and this is news—Bo Peep." That Is news, John Lasseter! Thanks for clarifying. So instead of Pixar expanding into a new sandbox »
Love is in the air in the next “Toy Story” movie. The fourquel will focus on “a love story with Woody and — and this is news — Bo Peep,” Disney Chief Creative Office John Lasseter told CNBC on Friday, ahead of Disney’s D23 Expo. This brings Bo Peep, voiced by Annie Potts, back to the franchise, after she had only a brief appearance in “Toy Story 3.” The script for the new animated film is being penned by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, who co-wrote the indie romance “Celeste and Jesse Forever” and executive produced canceled-too-soon NBC series “A to Z.” The Bo-Peep news confirms what fans have speculated for several months. Pixar president Jim Morris said earlier this year that “Toy Story 4” will be a romantic comedy and “will not put much focus on the interaction between the characters and children.” That might placate fans who bemoaned the »

Appearing at the D23 expo in Anaheim today, Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter spoke with CNBC and finally revealed the storyline for Pixar's highly anticipated fourth film in the "Toy Story" series.
"It's a love story with Woody and - and this is news - Bo Peep... At Pixar and at Disney, we only make sequels if we come up with a story that's as good or better than the original. That's our rule. We don't do things just to print money."
Though Bo Peep was introduced as Woody's love interest in the original "Toy Story," she was absent from the third film and it was suggested she was either donated or sold off. How they plan to bring her back into the narrative is unknown at this time, as is whether Annie Potts will reprise her voice role as the character.
