Great Job, Internet!: Bridget Jones’s Baby becomes a silent film in this dialogue-free trailer

8 September 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Blame it on Al Jolson. Ever since that infernal crooner delivered the line “You ain’t heard nothin’ yet!” in 1927’s The Jazz Singer, audiences have demanded to hear actors speak in movies. The very next year, Mickey Mouse spoke in Steamboat Willie, and the era of the talkie had truly arrived. Displaced silent actress Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) would bemoan the situation in 1950’s Sunset Boulevard: “They had to have the ears of the whole world, too. So they opened their big mouths and out came talk, talk, talk!” The only silent films that have been made in recent decades have been deliberate throwbacks, like Michel Hazanavicius’ Oscar-winning The Artist. But maybe the silent movie, or at least the dialogue-free movie, has not yet breathed its last. On September 7, The Hollywood Reporter accidentally uploaded a wordless version of the trailer for the upcoming sequel Bridget Jones »

The History of the Disney vs. Warner Bros Feud

21 August 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney and Warner Bros are currently embroiled in a major feud regarding the super hero movies they produce, based on characters from the rival comic book companies they own; Marvel and DC. However, the competition between the two studios goes back to the 1930s; which was long before the WB ever purchased DC and before Marvel Comics even existed. Cinelinx looks at the first rivalry between these two big movie studios, which pre-dates super heroes. It involved a mouse and a rabbit.

The Walt Disney Company made its mark in 1928 when it introduced the iconic character who would become its symbol/mascot. Micky Mouse debuted in the short film Steamboat Willie in 1928. Throughout the 1930s and into the 40s, Disney established itself as the dominant masters of cinematic animation. Other popular characters like Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Pluto, among others, appeared to enthrall kids and amuse adults. The »
