Lasseter wows Cannes with Pixar, Disney footage

20 May 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

John Lasseter, animation guru and Chief Creative Officer at both Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios, gave a special presentation of the companies’ upcoming slate in Cannes today.

The advancements in animation he showed during the session earned some roars of approval from the assembled press and industry guests. 

“These two studios are filmmaker-driven studios,” Lasseter said. “Our focus is on telling great stories and we celebrate the heritage of each studio. It’s exciting to be constantly breaking new ground.”

Pixar slate

Pixar’s slate of course includes Pete Docter’s Inside Out, which premiered to rave reviews in Cannes earlier this week.

“It’s a very special movie for us,” Lasseter said. “When you look at all the films Pixar has made this could be the most important, It makes you think about your own thoughts, emotions, memories in a different way.” The film opens in France on June 17 (under the title [link=tt »

John Lasseter on ‘Finding Dory,’ ‘The Good Dinosaur’ and Disney/Pixar Slate

20 May 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John Lasseter talked about the upcoming slate of Disney/Pixar animated films during an extremely detailed two-hour presentation at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday morning.

The chief creative officer unveiled new clips and plot lines of such titles as Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” the sequel to “Finding Nemo,” and Disney’s “Moana” about a Polynesian princess. Lasseter noted how Pixar will release two movies in the same year for the very first time: “Inside Out,” which premiered at Cannes earlier this week out-of-competition, and “The Good Dinosaur,” which has a Thanksgiving release date.

He also declared that Disney Animation had bounced back, thanks to the success of the juggernaut “Frozen” and the Oscar-winning “Big Hero 6,” saying that the studio had previously suffered from low morale. “It was quite broken when they came in,” Lasseter said about the business 10 years ago. He told his staff: “What would heal them »

What's New on Netflix, TV, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: May 11 - May 17

11 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

TV Worth Watching

"Mad Men" (Sunday on AMC at 10 p.m.)

It's the end of an era. Pour yourself an Old Fashioned and toast the end of "Mad Men," 'cause Don Draper leaves us on May 17. Farewell, Don/Dick, Peggy, Joan, Roger, and -- wherever she is -- Lois the foot-crushing secretary. #TeamLois4Life

"Scandal" (Thursday on ABC at 9 p.m.)

"Scandal" is so devoted to its own name that every episode feels like a season finale. But the real end of Season 4 happens May 14 with "You Can't Take Command." ABC promises it will be "shocking" and since it's "Scandal," we believe it.

"Saturday Night Live" (Saturday on NBC at 11:29 p.m.)

Louis C.K. will host the Season 40 finale with Rihanna as musical guest. We have high expectations for both stars, »

Your Once Upon a Time Finale Questions, Answered: Scoop on the Crazy Cliffhanger, Hook and Emma and More

8 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Heroes and Villains, the best new show of the year?! Sorry all other freshman shows, but Once Upon a Time just became an entirely new show and we're obsessed with it. In the ABC fantasy hit's two-hour season finale, "Operation Mongoose," the author turns the tables on our heroes and villains, and nothing will ever be the same. Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) becomes evil! Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) becomes a knight in shining armor! Pigs fly! Ok, that last part is a lie, but you get the idea. But will the season four finale keep with the shows trend of introducing a new world and/or iconic Disney character (Hi, Frozen's Elsa!) in the final moments? "This one is one of our favorite ones.

Once Upon a Time: Season Five Renewal for ABC Series

8 May 2015 5:07 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The backstories on Once Upon a Time continue to become more complex (confusing?) but enough viewers are willing to stick with it for ABC to want to renew the series for a fifth season.

Once Upon a Time follows the continuing adventures of fairytale characters who switch between their storybook world and Storybrooke, a small town in Maine. The ensemble cast includes Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Robert Carlyle, Colin O'Donoghue, Emile de Ravin, Jared S. Gilmore, and Michael Socha.

Time Machine: Sensational Scarlett J. in Purple

7 May 2015 8:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

Disney's Zootopia Just Announced Its Wonderful Voice Cast

7 May 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Will Walt Disney Animation be able to top Frozen? It was a worldwide sensation that transformed "Let It Go" into the new "It's A Small World," and spawned a Frozen Fever short film, a sing-a-long theatrical release, and an upcoming Broadway adaptation. Zootopia probably won't be that big of a hit, but the studio just announced its voice cast, and we have high hopes. The basic gist of Zootopia, helmed by directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore, is that it takes place in a world where animals walk, talk, and act like humans, and live in one of numerous cities, each pegged to a specific animal habitat. Once Upon A Time's Ginnifer Goodwin has been cast in the leading role of Judy Hopps, an optimistic bunny detective who must team up with a "cynical-con-artist fox" to crack her first case. Jason Bateman of Horrible Bosses and Arrested Development will voice »

Ginnifer Goodwin Travels To Zootropolis

6 May 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Although the film is known as Zootopia in the States, Disney’s early 2016 release will be called Zootropolis in the UK. But we’ll still get the original voice cast, which already includes Jason Bateman and will now also feature Ginnifer Goodwin. She’s been part of the extended Disney family for a while, playing a version of Snow White on Us TV’s Once Upon A Time, which crafts drama out of the fairy tales that Disney has used to fuel many of its movies. In Zootropolis, she’ll be rabbit Lt. Judy Hopps, a by-the-book traffic warden who longs to be a proper cop. When a mystery is uncovered, she’s therefore determined to solve it, even it if means striking up an unlikely partnership with a smooth talking scam artist of a fox, Nick Wilde (Bateman). The movie features a team-up between Tangled director Byron Howard and »

How to Find the Best Sunglasses For Your Face Shape

The sun is a-shining. This—at its most basic level—means you have no better excuse than to splurge on a pair of new of sunglasses. But before you spend a fortune on stunners that leave indentations on your cheeks or fall off your face, let's be certain these new shades actually flatter. If you have a round face… your visage is on the fuller side. Angular features or jawline corners are not too apparent. Your baby face is a lifetime gift (it helps you look younger), and be rest assured that you're in good company with sophisticated celebs including Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Williams.

A Nickelodeon Cartoon Showed a Topless Woman's Breasts and Parents Are Upset

16 March 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There’s a reason they call it the boob tube. (And it actually has nothing to do with this: The word “boob” is old-time slang for a foolish or stupid person, so the phrase was bashing TV and the people who watched it. Still...)

In a March 5 episode of the animated show Oggy and the Cockroaches called “(Un)happy Camper,” Nickelodeon showed a cartoon picture of a woman with big sunglasses, bigger lips, and the biggest naked boobs we’ve ever seen on a children’s show.

Parents were not pleased. Here’s the Nsfw screen capture:

How 'Once Upon a Time' Prepared Ginnifer Goodwin for the New 'Tinker Bell' Movie

13 March 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ginnifer Goodwin loves her fairytales!

The Once Upon a Time star sat down with superfan Lauren Kaplan to talk about how her portrayal of Mary Margaret/Snow White in the hit ABC series helped her prepare for her newest undertaking as the voice of a fairy named Fawn in Disney's Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast.

“I do think that there's something about being on a show that's so whimsical and full of so much optimism and hope and faith and has very different rules of its own universe that helped me free myself enough to play Fawn,” Goodwin told Et. “I tend to play very optimistic characters which is why I think I find these characters and they find me.”
