Of the top 25 grossing films at the U.S. box office in 2012 (so far, at least), there are actually three more films that feature Channing Tatum as a lead actor than feature anyone as an openly Lgbt character with more than a couple lines. And there's three Tatum films in that top 25 (including "Magic Mike," which is notably the closest thing to gay porn to ever gross over $100 million -- though it does not actually feature an openly gay character). Now, if we're a bit more flexible with the definition, one can certainly make queer readings of a few major characters in those 25 films. And in a grand Hollywood tradition, they are all effeminate villains. There's Giovanni Ribisi's Donny in "Ted," Sam Spruell's Finn in "Snow White and the Huntsman," Alan Tudyk's King Candy in "Wreck-It-Ralph" and, of course, Javier Bardem's Silva in "Skyfall," who is »

Disney's video game based comedy Wreck-It Ralph has already seen success at the box office, and it seems that they are already discussing a possible sequel. John C. Reilly and Rich Moore were recently interviewed and discussed this potential follow-up, which will hopefully feature the iconic Nintendo character Super Mario.
"At dinner last night we were already talking about 'What could they do? What kinda of things could happen? Who could be in it? We'll really come up with something good for Mario to do. To be able to present him in the sequel, that would be great."
John C. Reilly, who voiced Ralph, also added that the studio was already discussing the follow up.
"Some of the big muckety-muckets at the studio, who I just saw the other night, were like 'We're talking sequel! »

Disney withdrew from the International Animated Film Society, Asifa-Hollywood back in 2010 and even before then it was hard to put much stock in the Annie Awards. Now it's just sort of a blip on the overall award season radar that manages headlines twice a year, once for their nominees and again for their winners, which this year will be announced on Saturday, February 2, 2013. That said, the org announced their 2013 nominees this morning and their Best Feature Film list was made up of eight nominees (a large list considering the lack of quality animated films I've seen this year) including Brave, Frankenweenie, Hotel Transylvania, ParaNorman, Rise of the Guardians, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, The Rabbi's Cat and Wreck-It Ralph. It is nice not to see something like The Lorax among that list, but I still think this was a year in which the field could have easily been limited to five nominees. »

If there is one thing we can all agree is the worst part about Firefly’s short run of Fox, it’s the mere fact we only got 13 episodes of the series – not counting the movie, Serenity. It would seem, the cast adamantly agrees and would have even liked the opportunity to write a few of their own episodes, Alan Tudyk in particular. In the recent special, Firefly: Browncoats Unite, honoring the show’s ten year anniversary, it was revealed Tudyk was responsible for pitching the most episode ideas out of the entire cast, but not a single one ever went past that initial stage.
Tudyk’s idea, according to Entertainment Weekly, involved criminals engaging in illegal dogfights and a planet where one side is covered in perpetual darkness. The dogs subjected to these fights were big and feral and just really mean. And of course the crew would »

Video games have had a tough time translating their success to the big screen. Even games that appear to have a logical narrative that should fit perfectly into film format tend to falter when the final product is released. Games like Super Mario Bros., Doom, Resident Evil, and Prince of Persia have failed to win over critics and their own core fan bases. Those failures make us wonder if it is at all possible to make a proper video game adaptation. Enter Wreck-It Ralph, which comes at this idea at an entirely different angle.
This isn’t an adaptation of a classic video game from our childhood, »

It's the ten year anniversary of both the birth and death of Firefly, the short-lived sci-fi / post-apocalyptic Whedon-helmed Western that continues to rabidly lives on in the hearts of its fans. In fact, that's a major theme addressed in the Science Channel's one-hour special Firefly: Browncoats Unite, airing November 11th at 10pm after a marathon of the series. In it, the cast (most -- Sean Maher, Summer Glau, Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk -- at a roundtable, a few -- Morena Baccarin, Gina Torres and Jewel Staite -- with separate interviews) along with executive producer Tim Minear and executive story editor Jose Molina, discuss at length the entire oral history of the series, from their favorite moments to their first impressions of each other, and what exactly made the series so magical to fans but not to, at the time, Fox executives.

Ten years ago, Joss Whedon’s Firefly made its debut on television. Like most of Whedon’s TV efforts, it generally went unappreciated — ratings were never strong, mostly because it kept shifting time slots and was initially shown out of order — but also was deeply adored by the cult of fans who hung on every adventure of Captain Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and the crew of the Serenity. Though it was canceled after only 13 episodes, the show was one of the first great success stories for TV-on-dvd, and the demand was so intense that the Whedon got the cast back »

But McDaid isn’t the only Browncoat in her office: Everyone involved with the 60-minute special is passionate about the series. “Every frame is crafted with love, across the board,” McDaid says. “It’s been an incredibly uplifting and inspirational experience to make this film and to be working with so many people who believe in it.”
“Browncoats Unite” marks an important milestone for the short-lived but long-adored series. “It’s the tenth anniversary this year, and we thought it would be »

Wreck-It Ralph Directed By: Rich Moore Starring: John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk Written By: Phil Johnston and Jennifer Lee As much as I love movies, only one in my short time here on Earth has made me cry like a baby. Sure, I’ve teared up during the opening montage of Up or even been misty during Bambi. It’s Magnolia‘s famous sing along of Aimee Mann’s “Wise Up” that makes my emotions turn on the water works and openly cry in a theater. Wreck-It Ralph can now lay claim as the second film to do this, and wipe away the tears and have me smiling like a six-year [ Read More ]

If you haven’t seen Wreck-It Ralph, go see it, it’s really good, no matter what my Grouchy McGroucherson co-host on the Mousterpiece podcast has said and written, but the purpose of this review isn’t to praise Wreck-It Ralph, it’s to pop the hood to see why the narrative engine of Disney’s latest animated film works so well. And that unfortunately means spoiling some of the film’s secrets. In other words…

For a show that no one supposedly watched more than a decade ago leading to an abbreviated half season, it's amazing that "Firefly" is getting so much attention. Science Channel recognizes that, and has planned a new "Firefly" special featuring the cast and crew of the series called "Firefly: Browncoats Unite" that will air on Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. Et. The special will include interviews with series creator Joss Whedon as well as cast Nathan Fillion, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Morena Baccarin, Alan Tudyk, Gina Torres and Jewel Staite. The special will also include interviews with executive producer Tim Minear and story editor Jose Molina. The goal of the special is to provide an oral history of the show, including what Science promises are "secrets from the set," as well »
In the tradition of Pixar films, before Wreck-It Ralph plays a wonderful short that was included in the Fantastic Fest animated shorts program, Paperman. Directed by John Kahrs and produced by John Lasseter, Paperman draws inspiration from the classic film The Red Balloon, and in fact includes a red balloon to drive the point home. However, this is a more adult tale than the 1956 children's fantasy. A chance encounter on a train station platform leads a young man to the girl of his dreams in a whimsical and touching film that encompasses a similar range of emotion to the opening few minutes of Up.
Lasseter is also executive producer on Wreck-It Ralph, opening this weekend. An adventure worthy of the man who brought us Toy Story and a logical successor to that trilogy, Ralph was directed by Rich Moore, who made some of the most-loved episodes of Futurama, The Simpsons, »

The animated film from Disney, has also just been submitted as a Best Animated Film Oscar contender for next year’s Academy Awards and must be said, has to be a strong favourite.
