Two New Fun Clips For Squirrel Animated Adventure ‘The Nut Job’

23 July 2014 4:09 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a squirrel and to find them taking over a whole movie?! Fantastic!

The Nut Job follows the travails of Surly (Will Arnett), a mischievous city park squirrel and his rat friend Buddy, who plan an outrageous nut-store heist and unwittingly get embroiled in a human bank robbery. They’re telling us it’s full of heroes and villains, daring rescues, comic mix-ups and classic slapstick, and in fairness – it does look like one of those animation that’s fun for all the family.

Starring the voices of Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Katherine Heigl, Liam Neeson and Maya Rudolph – Check out these two all-new clips below…including the discovery of The Lost City of Nutlantis!

The Nut Job is released in cinemas nationwide on 1st August from Warner Bros. »

Inherent Vice To Debut At New York Film Festival

21 July 2014 5:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Excitingly, this fall’s New York Film Festival will see the debuts of not one but two of this year’s most viable Oscar contenders, with word that Paul Thomas Anderson’s thriller Inherent Vice has nabbed the festival’s centerpiece slot. Last week, we reported that David Fincher’s hotly anticipated murder mystery adaptation Gone Girl would open the festival, and now it appears that cinephiles have yet another huge reason to attend.

It’s curious that two huge titles have been announced so quickly for Nyff – typically, the Telluride International Film Festival (Tiff) announces its title before Nyff and attracts bigger names. Regardless, it’s exciting to have confirmation of the movie’s premiere, given how little we’d heard about it up until this point.

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, the 1960s-set Inherent Vice, an adaptation of the inscrutable detective novel by Thomas Pynchon, centers on “an inept stoner »

18 July 2014 7:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

'Big Hero 6' Japanese Trailer Introduces Hiro to Nurse Baymax

16 July 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney debuted the full-length Big Hero 6 trailer yesterday, but it left out an important piece of background information about its hero, robotics prodigy Hiro, and his relationship with robotic nurse Baymax, who becomes his best friend and crime fighting partner after a tragic loss. A new international trailer, hailing from Japan, helps set up this important relationship, and it's easy to connect the dots though the latest footage may be in a foreign language (to most).

Watch and learn how Hiro lost his older brother Tadashi, which brings about the fateful befriending of Baymax in scenes that add a little emotional heart to the trademark Disney humor and heavy action that is on display.

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius-thanks to his brilliant brother »

Big Hero 6 International Trailer: Hiro Hamada Meets Baymax

16 July 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Disney has released a Big Hero 6 international trailer.  Although the trailer is entirely in Japanese, after that domestic trailer dropped yesterday and absolutely melted my heart, I’m down to watch Hiro (voice by Ryan Potter) and Baymax (Scott Adsit) do just about anything, even if I can’t understand what they’re saying. This one still has the footage of Hiro trying to train Baymax and help him suit up, but it’s got a far more somber tone to it.  Rather than open up with vibrant colors and an amusing scene like watching Baymax plug up a few holes with tape, this international version gets a funeral and rather blue and grey imagery to go with it.  However, as soon as Baymax pops up – or rather, blows up – the piece lightens significant and also gives us a look at how and why Hiro and Baymax came together in the first place. »

Disney’s ‘Big Hero 6′ Lands A Full Trailer & Brand New Stills

15 July 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Disney’s next assault on the box-office takes the form of superhero tale, Big Hero 6. The film follows  group of 6 superheroes who must take on an evil masked man in the city of San Fransokyo. The trailer demonstrates the wonderful comedy on display as well as giving us a glimpse at the action. The real star though is Baymax, a big balloon like robot whom will certainly become a big selling toy following the film’s release. Although many may simply see this as Disney’s The Incredibles, it looks far different. Here’s hoping it delivers on the promises of its trailer.

Big Hero 6 is released in the Us on 7th November and in the UK on 30th January. It stars the voices of Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Alan Tudyk, Maya Rudolph and Genesis Rodriguez.

Disney and Marvel's Big Hero 6 Looks Charming, Of Course

15 July 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Welcome to Fransokyo! It's sometime in the future, and a man in a kabuki mask is controlling a bunch of microbots for evil purposes. Meanwhile, a kid with spiky hair is trying to stop Kabuki Guy with the help of his sidekick, a tubby Michelin Man-looking macrobot. This is the premise for Big Hero 6, Disney and Marvel's new animation, due in theaters on Nov. 7. Even if you didn't quite follow that synopsis, you might still want to check out the trailer. It's pretty darn cute, and there's a really fat animated cat involved, which the macrobot affectionately refers to as a "hairy baby." It's got a lot to live up to, given that Disney's last offering, Frozen, became, well, the most popular movie in the world, but with voices from Jamie Chung, T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, and Damon Wayans Jr., I'm already on board. Take a look! »

Based on the Marvel superhero team of the same name, Big Hero 6 follows robotics expert Hiro Hamada as he tries to pin down a criminal on the loose. He enlists the help of some friends and his adorable, balloon-like robot Baymax, who could be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man’s long-lost cousin.

Robots and 'hairy babies' run amok in new trailer for Disney and Marvel's 'Big Hero 6'

15 July 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

And you thought Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" looked like the most surreal superhero movie on the horizon.  Meet "Big Hero 6." The new trailer for Disney's first animated take on Marvel superhero lore, promises that the film will be more "Wreck-It Ralph" than "The Avengers."  In the film, boy genius Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) builds a tubby, lovably dim-witted robot called Baymax (voiced by "30 Rock's" Scott Adsit) and puts together a team of rookie superheroes in order to fight a mysterious evil gathering in the city of San Fransokyo. Like the initial teaser, there are a few extended gags involving Baymax's blobby physique and his less-that-perfect grasp on everyday life (such as the hilarious final joke in which he pets a cat and calls it a "hairy baby"). Plus, some eagle-eyed viewers may have seen these Easter eggs.  Although "Big Hero 6" is inspired by the Marvel comic of the same name, »

Check Out The First Full Trailer For Disney And Marvel’s Big Hero 6

15 July 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve been getting a number of intriguing teasers for Disney and Marvel’s upcoming big-screen collaboration Big Hero 6 lately, including character profiles and posters, but we had yet to see a full-length trailer for the movie (I’m not counting that cutesy but uninformative teaser trailer) – until today.

In our first real look at Big Hero 6, we see robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada trying to talk to an uninterested cop about how he and his plump robot companion Baymax were attacked by “a man in a cookie mask” and robbed of precious microbots. When that talk doesn’t go well, Hiro and Baymax flee – taking the cop’s roll of tape with them for Baymax. The trailer also gives us our first look at some of the other members of the Big Hero 6, who evidently get pulled into Hiro’s conflict with the microbot thief and wind up running for their lives. »
