Kaitlyn Dever talks about 'Laggies' and on-set teenage camaraderie

24 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It's been a busy fall for young actress Kaitlyn Dever, who appears in Lynn Shelton's Laggies, out Friday, and stars in Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children. Dever proved her formidable acting chops in last year's Short Term 12 playing an abused teen in a foster-care facility—look no further than the scene in which she reads a children's story her character wrote about an octopus. In the scene, Dever let's her character's disconnected, tough façade slip away. Her performance in that movie and The Spectacular Now got her labeled the "Summer's Indie It Flick Queen" by Teen Vogue. »

Film Review: ‘Big Hero 6’

23 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With “Big Hero 6,” an obscure Marvel Comics title gives the Mouse House’s toon division just enough raw material to assemble its own superhero franchise, starring millions of robots — including one, a balloon-bellied virtual nurse named Baymax, that you’ll never forget. Co-directors Don Hall and Chris Williams borrow the character names and a few key details from their pulp source, but otherwise succeed in putting a thoroughly Disney spin on things, delivering appealing personalities, bright, peppy animation, positive life lessons and what looks like a world record for the sheer amount of hugging featured in a superhero movie. More male-skewing than “Frozen,” the relatively hip result should do big business for Disney, especially in Asian territories, with easy expansion possibilities via additional movies, comics or a TV series.

Big Hero 6 Stars and Directors Talk About How the Story Developed

21 October 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Big Hero 6 is getting closer to release every day, and I cannot wait for you guys to see it. I saw it last week and then sat in on roundtable discussions with the directors and members of the cast. They spoke candidly about the process of making the film. 

Scott Adsit, who voices Baymax, was asked about the changes their characters went through in development. He replied,

“I don’t think their relationship changed that much. I think it became more central as the process went on and became more of the heart of the film. I think originally it was part of the film, but the focus was more on the superhero team and its formation and all that. And I think after they started recording and restorying everything we took more of a center stage.” 

Ryan Potter, the voice of Hiro, added, “They changed the relationships of certain characters around, »

'Big Hero 6' Clips Introduce Wasabi, GoGo and Honey Lemon

20 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, fans got to meet Fred (T.J. Miller) and a deflated Baymax (Scott Adsit) in two clips from Disney's Big Hero 6. Disney has released now released four more clips that give us a proper introduction to the rest of this superhero team, Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.), Gogo Tomago (Jamie Chung) and Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez).

While these characters eventually team up with Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) and Baymax to save San Fransokyo, they are all actually friends of Hiro's older brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney), who shows Hiro exactly what their individual talents are. Hiro will need all of their skills if he wants to defeat the evil villain Yokai from destroying his beloved hometown of San Fransokyo.

We also have another clip where Tadashi tries to convince Hiro to stop "bot-fighting" and uses his incredible intellect for something more useful, like going to college. Take a look at »

Superhero Movie Release Dates: From 2015 to 2020

16 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s no denying that the most popular genre around these days is that of the superhero movie.  Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy proved that comic book adaptations could be just as dramatic and heavy as non-genre films, Marvel Studios jumpstarted a massive interconnected series of superhero movies that were significantly more colorful and humorous, and audiences have been turning out to both kinds of superhero movies in droves.  With every major studio now working to turn its own comic book properties into the next big thing, it’s sometimes tough to keep track of what’s coming out when, who’s in it, and how it fits into the overall picture.  Not to worry, though, because we here at Collider have you covered. After the jump, you’ll find a comprehensive guide of superhero movie release dates for every major comic book adaptation on the calendar, going all »

'Big Hero 6' Clips Introduce Fred and a Deflated Baymax

15 October 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even robots can become unpredictable, which is the case in two new clips from Big Hero 6, featuring a deflating Baymax (Scott Adsit) and Hiro's first introduction to the unorthodox Fred (T.J. Miller).

It seems that when Baymax isn't inflated to capacity, he takes on a drunken kind of demeanor, stumbling around while unable to control what he is saying. This doesn't bode well for Hiro (Ryan Potter), who doesn't want his Aunt Cass (Maya Rudolph) to know that they've been up to no good.

The second clip shows how school mascot Fred is the dark horse of the group, who wants Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez) to turn him into a fire-breathing lizard and asks Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.) for a shrink ray. They may not seem like the most cohesive group from these clips, but they all must put aside their differences and unite to save their hometown of »

15 October 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Hiro (Ryan Potter) and Baymax (Scott Adsit) have been killing it in every piece of promo material released for Big Hero 6 thus far, but now it’s time to meet another member of the team, T.J. Miller’s Fred.  This brand new Big Hero 6 clip actually comes from the footage revealed at the film’s New York Comic-Con panel.  Hiro’s a gifted kid, but much to his big brother’s disappointment, he’s busy using his talents to make money in illegal back alley robot fights.  In hopes of setting him straight, Tadashi brings him to his lab to show him what he’s working on and to introduce him to his school friends, including Fred. Hit the jump to check out the clip for yourself and click here to read my Big Hero 6 New York Comic-Con panel recap.  The film hits theaters on November 7th »

Baymax Is Low on Juice in This Exclusive 'Big Hero 6' Clip (Video)

15 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

R2D2. C-3Po. Wall-e. Johnny 5. Robert Pattinson. Get prepared to add another name to the long list of the most beloved cinematic robots of all time, when Disney's animated Marvel adaptation "Big Hero 6" hits screens the first week of November and properly introduces the world to Baymax, an inflatable health care robot turned armor-clad superhero. Yes, that old story. In the clip we are so excited to exclusively debut, Baymax is running low on juice and trying to inconspicuously return home after a day spent adventuring. It's really, really cute.

First, some background: "Big Hero 6," which is Walt Disney Animation Studios' follow-up to last year's enormously popular "Frozen," is set in the land of San Fransokyo, a fanciful mash-up of San Francisco and Tokyo. It's here that our hero, pint-sized scientist Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter), lives with his older brother and aunt (Maya Rudolph). Hiro »

Fall Out Boy was tapped to write and perform the song for the film's sequence in which the Big Hero 6 team is transformed from a group of super smart individuals to a band of high-tech heroes.

Says band member Patrick Stump:

"The idea of this kid stepping up on behalf of his brother is what inspired the song's title 'Immortals. Your victories aren't exclusively yours, so the fact that all of these people are coming together to help him get to the finish line is really exciting."

Peter Wentz continued:

"They're testing out their new super suits for the first time in the scene. »

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #50-41

13 October 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny.  We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »
