The best part of Big Hero 6—the awesomely odd exploding-fist sound cuddly robot Baymax makes when bumping knuckles with his pal Hiro—comes as a delightful surprise for audiences...which is fitting, since it was initially received the same way by the guys who actually made the film. "I remember having that feeling of like, 'That's really weird and strange, and it'll never make it into the movie," says co-writer Robert Baird, who was listening when the voice of Baymax (30 Rock alum Scott Adsit) loosed his first "balalalalalala." Of course, there's more to the story than that. It takes »

While this scene doesn't exactly spoil the main narrative drive of Big Hero 6, it wasn't included in any of the press screenings. It does, however, potentially set up a sequel, so you may want to check out Big Hero 6 in theaters first before reading on.
Big Hero 6 is Disney's first animated adaptation of a Marvel comic book, although it didn't have nearly the same amount of name recognition as a hit titles such as Marvel's The Avengers. Still, Disney managed to keep a Marvel tradition alive at the end of Big Hero 6, by giving comic book legend Stan Lee a voice cameo during an end credit scene.
The scene in question centers on T.J. Miller's Fred, »

AMC has passed on its half-hour scripted comedy pilot “We Hate Paul Revere.”
Set in colonial Boston, the single-camera satire written by and co-starring Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner revolved around two brothers who are struggling to fit in as the city braces for the drama of revolution.
AMC had been exploring the possibility of adding half-hour scripted projects to its schedule. But at a time when AMC is preparing to rebuild its schedule following the end of “Breaking Bad” and next spring’s departure of “Mad Men,” execs likely felt it was not the right time to expand into original comedies.
Beyond AMC’s specific challenge, the ad-supported cable business is under ratings pressure and financial pressure, which was a dominant topic of last week’s parade of third-quarter earnings releases from the major showbiz congloms. »

Now playing in theaters is Walt Disney Animation Studios Big Hero 6. Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, the fantastic film follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) who, after a tragic event, turns to inflatable and huggable robot companion Baymax (Scott Adsit). With a dangerous plot unfolding on the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro transforms a group of like-minded friends – adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (Jamie Chung), precision freak Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (T.J. Miller) – into high-teach heroes determined to solve the mystery and save the day. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive interview with T.J. Miller. He talked about what it was like doing the voice-over work, the incredible animation, how the story changed during production, what it's been like working with Mike Judge on Silicon Valley and what's coming up on season 2, and a lot more. »

As Netflix continues to assert itself as a major television company with such acclaimed series as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, Amazon Studios is racing to catch up by ordering series it hopes will be equally well-received. So far, Amazon has scored one big hit in the form of Jeffrey Tambor-led dramedy Transparent, and it hopes to find some more in the new lineup of pilots, which will be made available for viewing as part of the company’s first pilot season of 2015.
Enclosed are descriptions of all seven pilots, courtesy of Deadline. The talented involved on all of them is impressive, to say the least. Mad Dogs comes from Cris Cole (The Bill) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield), while The Man In The High Castle hails from Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files). Carlton Cuse (Lost, The Strain) and Randall Wallace (Braveheart) are behind Point Of Honor, »

I never dreamed that when Disney bought Marvel it would lead to something as precious as Big Hero 6. Disney took a nothing Marvel property, one I had never heard of despite reading comic books voraciously for the first 28 years of my life, and turned it in to something quite fantastic. Big Hero 6 is a great movie and is a great example of something Disney can do for Marvel that isn’t just moving all of the Spider-Man cartoons over to Disney Channel.
The plots in Disney animated films tend to be a bit thin and while I mean that as no insult Big Hero 6 is no exception. There’s a precocious kid and a tragic incident. There’s a crew of friends that must rally around the grieving kid and help him get revenge/closure. There’s a secret to be revealed that will surprise a child »

Big Hero 6. 2014
The special bond that develops between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.
For an animated film, Big Hero 6 is bursting with originality and many welcome refreshing concepts. Take the city backdrop for example, San Fransokyo, an amalgamation of San Francisco and Tokyo that creatively blends the two cultures into one unique world. There are even twists put on historical landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, which now has Japanese-style pagodas standing tall at the ends of each side. Simply put, the world on display here is fascinating, but is only just the beginning of the amount of praise Big Hero 6 deserves. »

Family audiences lifted “Big Hero 6″ over “Interstellar” and the fanboys and girls who turned out in force for Christopher Nolan’s space adventure in one of the fiercest box office match ups of the year.
“Big Hero 6″ topped the charts with $56.2 million from 3,761 locations, continuing Walt Disney Animation Studios’ recent hot streak. After the success of “Frozen” and “Wreck It Ralph,” the division is no longer the also-run to Pixar, its corporate cousin.
“They have been on quite the roll,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s distribution chief. “They’re in a creative renaissance.”
“Interstellar” scored a sizable $50 million from 3,561 locations, according to studio estimates. If “Interstellar’s” numbers hold, it will mark only the fourth time in history that two films have debuted to more than $50 million at the domestic box office, and each one of the previous occasions took place in the summer when ticket sales are at their highest. »
