Warner Bros is looking to launch the first of six King Arthur movies, whilst Universal may get cracking with its classic monster cinematic universe. And - yep - we may even get the world's first great film based on a videogame.

Summer blockbuster season 2016 stretches from March through to August, and here's what treats are lined up. Please note, we've gone with Us release dates, for the purposes of this feature, as that's where most of the films will debut first.

Joe Carnahan ("Stretch," "The Grey") is revving up the long dormant "Motorcade" for DreamWorks.

Josh Cooley announced as co-director of Toy Story 4 with John Lasseter

12 March 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney-Pixar has today announced via Twitter the news that Josh Cooley will co-direct the hugely anticipated Toy Story 4 alongside original director and Pixar head honcho John Lasseter.

Cooley began his career as a Pixar intern working in the story department on Cars, and is head of story on Pixar’s latest film, Inside Out, which debuts in cinemas this summer.

“To be co-director on Toy Story 4 with John, who brought the Toy Story characters to the screen 20 years ago, is a dream come true,” Cooley told Variety. “When I first saw Toy Story I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. Toy Story 4 will continue that tradition and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!”

VH1’s Hindsight, the best show you're not watching, ends its ‘90s journey – and we’ve got scoop on the life-altering season ender!

“The finale finds a lot of the characters at a crossroads,” creator Emily Fox tells ETonline. “It doesn’t wrap it all up and tie it in a bow. A lot of new questions are asked – some are answered, but not all.”

Let’s recap the season in a nutshell, shall we?

Creative Impact Animation Honoree John Lasseter Grooms Top Directors

10 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As chief creative officer of both Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, John Lasseter oversees two of the most powerful entertainment brands on earth, and does so while striving to maintain a “non-hierarchical” creative structure. He’s mad about studio notes, requiring all Pixar filmmakers to screen works-in-progress internally every 12 weeks, and maintaining a comprehensive company app (dubbed “Notesar”) that automatically collects and collates volumes of suggestions — yet he insists that all notes, even his own, be considered non-mandatory.

“Artists always want to hold things close to their chests, by nature, and say ‘look, just give me a little more time, I can make it that much better,’ ” Lasseter acknowledges. “But the director who brings the movie in (to an internal screening) knows that everyone is there to help make it the best movie it can be. And there’s no desire to make things fit perfectly into any kind »

‘Toy Story 4′ to break from the trilogy with a new genre choice

6 March 2015 9:40 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While many people still think it is a money grab, Pixar seems adamant that their next Toy Story movie will be different from the others, and that means changing up the story a little bit.

Speaking with Disney Latino earlier this week, Pixar president Jim Morris revealed that Toy Story 4 will break from the original trilogy of films and be a brand-new story within the universe (with all of the same characters).

“I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn I do not know if it will be continued […] It is not a continuation of the end of the story of ‘Toy Story 3,” Morris said.

He added that the focus of the story will shift from the relationship between the toys and their owner and will instead be a love story amongst the toy characters. This is a »

Toy Story 4 will be a "separate story" from the trilogy

5 March 2015 11:18 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Toy Story 4 will be more of a romantic comedy, with a different approach to the existing Toy Story trilogy...

Work is well underway on Toy Story 4, a movie that Pixar surprisingly announced earlier this year. The movie is set to arrive in the summer of 2017, and it's going to be directed by John Lasseter who, of course, helmed the first and second Toy Story films.

Details on Toy Story 4 has thus far been in short supply, but in a chat with Disney Latino (picked up by Slashfilm), Pixar Animation Studios president Jim Morris has revealed that the new film will stand alone from the Toy Story trilogy. Appreciating that his comments have been translated from Spanish, Morris said that "I think this movie in not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story. It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3".

Pixar President Outlines Toy Story 4

5 March 2015 2:13 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the announcement was made that there would soon be a Toy Story 4 in production, many fans of the franchise expressed deep dismay at the perceived unnecessary gamble with the legacy of what might just be one of the most perfect trilogies ever to grace a cinema screen. Vocal dissenters argued that Toy Story 3 was an enviable ending that simply could not be bettered. Regardless, Toy Story 4 has continued its way to realization. But now, Pixar President Jim Morris has given some broad details to Disney Latino (translated by /Film).

“The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy. I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn, I do not know if [it] will be continued. Never begin a project with that in mind.

“It is not a continuation of the end of Toy Story 3. »

'Toy Story 4': It's a Love Story, Baby Just Say Yesc

5 March 2015 11:53 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As much as I don't think we particularly need a new installment in Disney-Pixar's Toy Story franchise -- Toy Story 3 was honestly perfect, you guys, really -- come June 16, 2017 there will be one in theaters for all to see. And from the sounds of it, the story we see in Toy Story 4 won't simply be a continuation of the previous trilogy. The obvious way to extend the series, as many assumed -- and spoiler alert in case you haven't seen Toy Story 3 -- would have been to catch up with Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang some time after Andy drops them off with their new owner Bonnie when he leaves for college. However, this time around, it seems the focus of the film won't be the interactions and relationships between the toy characters and their human counterparts. Rather, Pixar president Jim Morris tells Disney »

'Toy Story 4' Is a Love Story, Won't Continue Trilogy

5 March 2015 9:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Do toys fall in love? That sounds like the most important question at the heart of Toy Story 4. Pixar studio president Jim Morris recently held a conference with Disney Latino, where he revealed some new information about the latest entry in the Toy Story Franchise. And he says that it won't be a continuation of Toy Story 3 and is not part of the original trilogy which kicked off in 1995 with Toy Story.

Toy Story 3 served as a great climax for the story of Woody and Buzz and their journey as toys. It sounds like Pixar doesn't want to tread on old territory with their new animated adventure Toy Story 4. While he doesn't go into too many specifics about the storyline or which characters will be at the center of it, Jim Morris does go onto call it a 'romantic comedy'. He explains:

Netflix lines up more exclusives

3 March 2015 1:46 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Netflix already has a formidable line-up of exclusive content ready to unleash when it launches in Australia and New Zealand on March 24- and more is it come. The third series of Orange is the New Black, a Netflix production, will screen on the subscription VOD service after it premieres on Foxtel.s showcase in June. Moreover, the Us streaming giant is working on deals with MGM and Warner Bros which would mean their first-run movies will debut on Netflix at the same time as their pay-tv premieres on Foxtel Movies.

Neither has been signed but If understands the MGM arrangement is in final negotiations and WB is highly likely to pact with Netflix as its output deal with the Nine Network, worth a reported $150 million a year, has expired, and the studio needs to generate more revenue from its pay-tv and free-tv deals.

Parks and Recreation Boss on [Spoiler]'s Series Finale Return and the Perils of Predicting the Future

24 February 2015 7:59 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Warning: The following Q&A contains spoilers from Tuesday’s Parks and Recreation series finale.

Let’s do the time warp again.

That was the mentality of Parks and Recreation‘s writers as they approached the NBC comedy’s super-sized series finale, according to showrunner Mike Schur.

“We had just done this time jump to get from the end of Season 6 to the beginning of Season 7, so it was sitting right there,” Schur says of the show’s final episode, which consisted of multiple flash-forwards into the lives of the Pawnee gang. “We were like, ‘Well, why don’t we just keep jumping through time? »

Alex & Sierra Hint That Harry Styles Wrote ‘I Love You’ About Taylor Swift

19 February 2015 2:58 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Alex & Sierra shot to superstardom when they were crowned the season 3 winners of The X-Factor USA. The twosome proved they had staying-power when they released their debut album, It’s About Us, last fall.

The singing-songwriting real-life couple is gearing up to hit the road with Andy Grammer on the “Good Guys and a Girl Tour,” kicking off on Feb. 24th in Seattle.

The pop duo's current single, "Little Do You Know," is a heartbreaking tune penned by 24-year-old Sierra and her girlfriends – and only the second song she ever wrote. The inspiration? Her relationship with 23-year-old Alex.

‘Big Hero 6′ Director Talks Sequel, Key to Film’s Success

14 February 2015 2:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar nominee “Big Hero 6” is on track this weekend to become the No. 3 all-time domestic earner for Walt Disney Animation Studios, passing the $218.9 million of “Beauty and the Beast” (after “Frozen” and “The Lion King”). One factor in the film’s success is the new approach at Disney Animation, says president Andrew Millstein, “which is about elevating storytelling and putting filmmakers at the center of the process.”

It sounds like a no-brainer for a film company to focus on filmmakers. But in the past, Disney Animation was often administrative-driven, with layers of notes from executives that dictated content and bogged down the creatives.

Big Hero 6″ provides a one-two punch for the studio after last year’s “Frozen.” “Big Hero 6″ boasts flashy work in the San Fransokyo setting and the action sequences, but the center of the film is the relationship between inflatable robot Baymax and tech prodigy Hiro. »
