New image from Disney/Pixar’s ‘Brave’

28 December 2011 10:30 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Check out this brand new image from Disney’s latest animated movie set in the Highlands of Scotland, Brave, the 13th feature-length animated film from Pixar Animation Studios. Directed by Mark Andrews (The Incredibles, Ratatouille, John Carter of Mars) and Brenda Chapman (The Lion King, Prince of Egypt),  the film features Kelly Macdonald as the voice of Merida, a skilled archer and the daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson).

Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land:massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. »

New Image From Brave Arrives

27 December 2011 11:42 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The run of post-Christmas picture previews continues today with Disney releasing new looks of two of its biggest animated projects for 2012. Throw your eyes down to the gallery for new looks at both Pixar’s Brave and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, courtesy of Collider.Neither of the pictures offers much in the way of truly revelatory content – after all, we know what the main characters in the films look like already, but it’s always nice to see some extra imagery.Brave, of course, is the Emeryville gang’s big release for the year, and what we hope will wipe the unpleasant memories of Cars 2 from our collective brains. The studio’s first full-on mythical tale, it finds headstrong Princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald) chafing against tradition and custom and desperate to prove that she’s more than just the future wife for some annoying lord’s son. But her »

Pixar’S Brave Takes Aim

Pixar’S Brave Takes Aim

I predict 2012 will be the year of the female archer. Not only does The Hunger Games heroine, Katniss Everdeen, acted by Jennifer Lawrence really know how to rock a bow when it’s a matter of life and death, but June 22nd 2012 will see the release of Pixar’s exciting tale, Brave, which features the fiery young redhead, Princess Merida, voiced by the simply splendid Kelly Macdonald. You know her as Helena Ravenclaw of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and as Margaret Schroeder of Boardwalk Empire.

Princess Merida may be the first ever female hero in a Pixar picture, but she’s anything but your typical royal. She defies tradition and as you can see in the new pic from stichkingdom.com, knows her way around a bow and arrow. It is a good thing, too, because we hear she will encounter some pretty »

‘Brave’ and ‘Frankenweenie’ Images: Princesses & Re-Animated Dogs

23 December 2011 10:42 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Disney has unveiled new images for two very different animated offerings it has scheduled for release in 2012: the Pixar princess fairy tale, Brave, and director Tim Burton’s 3D stop-motion, movie based on his famous 1984 short film, Frankenweenie.

Multiple trailers and images have already been unveiled for Pixar’s next computer-animated flick; by comparison, only a handful of still frames and production photos have been released for Burton’s new movie, up to this point. Nonetheless, it shouldn’t be too long before a teaser trailer for Frankenweenie hits the scene.

Here is an official synopsis for Brave, followed by a new pic from the film:

A grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor, “Brave” uncovers a new tale in the mysterious Highlands of Scotland where the impetuous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) defies an ...

ITV period drama featuring Elizabeth McGovern, Hugh Bonneville and Maggie Smith faces competition from The Hour

Downton Abbey has bagged four nominations for Golden Globe awards as America's love affair with British period drama shows no sign of abating.

The ITV1 drama series, filmed at Highclere Castle, Berkshire, is up for best miniseries or movie. Elizabeth McGovern and Hugh Bonneville are nominated for best actress and actor awards respectively, while Maggie Smith is in the running for best supporting actress in a miniseries or movie.

Downton, which is made by NBC Universal's UK production subsidiary Carnival Films, won six awards at the Emmys in September.

At the Golden Globes it faces competition from BBC2's 1950s newsroom drama The Hour – dubbed Britain's Mad Men – whose stars, Romola Garai and Dominic West, are also up for acting gongs.

The 2011 Golden Globe Nominations

This year's Golden Globe nominations have been announced with The Weinstein Company's "The Artist" scoring the most nods with six. Combined with numerous other wins from various critics associations, the black-and-white silent film has become the clear front runner in the run-up to the Oscars.

Not far behind at the Globes are "The Descendants" and "The Help" which both scored five, while "The Ides of March," "Midnight in Paris" and "Moneyball" got four. All the above mentioned also got Best Picture nominations, joined by "War Horse" and "Hugo" in the drama category along with "50/50", "Bridesmaids" and "My Week with Marilyn" in the comedy/musical section. Also of note is that Ryan Gosling scored nominations for Best Actor in both drama ("The Ides of March") and comedy ("Crazy Stupid Love"). Big shockers were the lack of nominations for both "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close".
