25 underappreciated family movies of the last 20 years

From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »

‘Good Morning, Mr. Mandela’ Movie in the Works

22 February 2016 5:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Maven Pictures and Jacqui Lewis are producing the film adaptation of Zelda la Grange’s book “Good Morning, Mr. Mandela,” based on her friendship with the former South African president.

La Grange, a white Afrikaner, grew up surrounded by people who perceived Mandela as a terrorist but she eventually served as one his most devoted associates for almost two decades. She began working in Mandela’s office as a typist in 1994, when he was elected as the post-apartheid president, and was promoted in 1999 to the post of private secretary to the office of the president.

Maven co-founders Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler are producing with Lewis. The producers have not yet attached a director or actors for “Good Morning, Mr. Mandela.”

Mandela died in late 2013, shortly after the release of the film “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” starring Idris Elba and Naomie Harris, with Justin Chadwick directing from a script by William Nicholson. »

Jessica Chastain tired of waiting for Hollywood, launches female production company

18 February 2016 11:17 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The foundations of Hollywood have been shaking lately with women and PoC (People of Color)  lining up to show how the system works against them. In front of and behind the camera, a severe lack of bodies that aren’t white and male is evident. A watershed was reached last year when powerful women like Jennifer Lawrence voiced their concerns about pay inequality and lack of representation. Matt Damon set off a firestorm about diversity with his comments about diversity off-camera. #OscarsSoWhite, #AsianAmericanIronFist, #HeForShe, and more hashtags have swept across social media. You can see Hollywood beginning to react and course correct in response, but it takes a while for behemoths to move. Jessica Chastain doesn’t have time for that. Announced by Deadline this morning, Chastain had founded her own production venture entitled Freckle Films. The company has partnered with Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray of Maven Pictures. The »

12 January 2016 2:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even though the fellow English crooners had a lot in common, David Bowie managed to leave Sting in awe. In an exclusive statement to People, Sting reflects on Bowie's death at the age of 69 on Sunday. For Sting, 64, the loss of music's history-making icon brought back a cherished memory he shares with wife Trudie Styler, 62.
