'Zootopia' TV Spot Wishes Everyone a Happy Valentine's Day

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

What kind of animal would forget Valentine's Day? Don't miss out on spoiling your special some-bunny on this Lover's Holiday! Disney's new animated comedy Zootopia has released a special Valentine's Day TV spot, which shows the various animals in this quaint burg enjoying the long weekend. In Zootopia, nothing says 'I Love You' like a dozen carrots, onions and a Fox taser. Just show you care, and take your time.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together-a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy. »

Judy Hopps Is On The Chase In Latest Clips For Disney’s Zootopia

11 February 2016 8:48 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In little under a month’s time, Disney will invite moviegoers into an entirely new and modernised animal kingdom for Zootopia, and Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s feature is bursting at the seems with personality.

Case in point: Cheetah Officer Clawhauser, who reports for duty in one of two new clips today, while the second has Ginnifer Goodwin’s Judy Hopps tower over Little Rodentia.

As a matter of fact, Goodwin’s lawful bunny is one of the two core characters anchoring Disney’s animation, partnering with Jason Bateman’s cunning scam artist Nick Wild to prove her worth to the local precinct. Governed by Idris Elba’s no-nonsense Chief Bogo, the police force of Zootopia is comprised of animals of all shapes and sizes – elephants included –  and it’s a cast we can hardly wait to learn more about in a few weeks’ time.

The Divergent Series: Ascendant loses its director

10 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lionsgate’s plans for the fourth and final instalment of The Divergent Series have suffered a setback, with Entertainment Weekly revealing that director Robert Schwentke has pulled out of the concluding chapter Ascendant.

According to the site, Schwentke – who has directed The Divergent Series: Insurgent and this year’s The Divergent Series: Allegiant – is looking to take a break, having shot both movies back to back. Ascendant is scheduled to go into production this summer, so Lionsgate will need to move quickly to secure his replacement.

Celebrate Michael B. Jordan's birthday by watching his Oscar-worthy acting

9 February 2016 5:52 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Michael B. Jordan's omission from the Best Actor race this year is easily as egregious as Idris Elba's. In Creed, Jordan played a three-dimensional, utterly relatable character in an intense but conventional sports narrative. Since the actor turns 29 today and for some reason he still doesn't have an Oscar nomination, let's take a look back at one scene where he showed us how powerful a thespian he is. There are number of unforgettably chilling moments in Fruitvale Station (namely a certain subway scene), but Jordan's performance during this conversation with Octavia Spencer, who plays his mother, showcases the intensity, emotionality, and believability.   We listed his work in Fruitvale Station as one of the 15 best performances of 2013.  When a performer is capable of acting like that, how can the world justify shoehorning him into an obnoxiously awful comedy like That Awkward Moment?  Have we properly apologized to him yet? Let's do it today: Happy birthday, »

Watch: Elisabeth Moss on Struggling Not to Be the Victim in 'The Free World' (Sundance Exclusive)

4 February 2016 10:33 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Sundance Review: 'The Free World' Starring Boyd Holbrook, Elisabeth Moss & Octavia Spencer Describing the inspiration for his work during an "Indiewire in Conversation at Chase Sapphire on Main" panel at the Sundance Film Festival last week, writer-director Jason Lew remarked, "I'm always attracted to characters that dwell on the outside and feel very uncomfortable in the world." That would probably be the best way to describe his directorial debut, "The Free World." The film premiered at this year's Sundance, where it was quickly described as an extremely intense drama featuring by two amazing performances from leads Boyd Holbrook and Elisabeth Moss. Holbrook plays an ex-convict who used to be Martin Lundy but now is a devout Muslim going by the name Mo (short for Muhammed). After being locked up for a crime he didn't commit, Mo has been exonerated and tossed back into a society that is completely alien to him. »

28 January 2016 10:46 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Zootopia Clip Has Idris Elba Address The Elephant In The Room

28 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the build up to its March debut, Disney Animation has been adopting a less-is-more approach with Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s Zootopia - a strategy exemplified by last month’s sloth-centric trailer lingering on a single scene to brilliant effect.

That’s not something you see too often, either, with movie trailers hailing from all genres often favoring a rat-a-tat pace that leaves the viewer teetering on the edge of sensory overload. But today, the House of Mouse continues to hit all the right notes in anticipation of Zootopia‘s arrival, with a new clip that features Idris Elba’s no-nonsense Chief Bogo addressing the literal elephant in the room.

Taking the odd-couple-solves-crime formula and situating it in a lush anthropomorphic kingdom, Disney’s new IP largely centers on the dynamic between Jason Bateman’s Nick Wild and Ginnifer Goodwin’s officer Judy Hopps. It’s the latter »

Oscar voter tries defending Academy's respect for diversity, fails

27 January 2016 5:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to chapter 4,535 of #OscarsSoWhite, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter: An Oscar voter named Rutanya Alda, a member of the Academy's actors branch, wrote a letter in defense of AMPAS' current voting practices. In it, she defends the Academy's historical appreciation of nonwhite performers with a variety of empty stats and uselessly vague anecdotes. Read the whole thing, but here we'll be responding to the grimmest portions of her plea. We begin with a shockingly assertive, wildly unnecessary claim: "Actors are the least racist people I have ever known in my life." Is this an actual talking point? Alda somehow ranked the racism within every profession in her social orbit, and -- without citing any sources -- came to the conclusion that the sprawlingly broad world of actors is unified in its lack of racism. That strikes me as a reach! I learned from the news once that Mel Gibson is a very racist person, »

[Sundance Review] The Free World

23 January 2016 5:25 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The greatest southern gothic tales feature richly detailed atmosphere dripping with a strong sense of location. Night of the Hunter and other classics certainly fit the category, and the fairly recent Sundance drama Ain’t Them Bodies Saints was a fine example, featuring characters that, whether in a doomed romance or not, feel destined for one another. On paper, The Free World seemingly has all the necessary ingredients, yet the drama stumbles out of the gate with cliche after cliche, even when it tries to change things up with a sharp dramatic turn.

Beginning as a study of rehabilitation, Mo (Boyd Holbrook) recently got out of a prison stint in which he became defined as the toughest inmate, earning the nickname “Cyclops.” Working at an animal shelter under the tutelage of Linda (Octavia Spencer), he cleans cages and shows a tender care for the battered animals brought in.
