Great Job, Internet!: Celebrate Bambi’s 74th anniversary with this look back at its creation

15 August 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Bambi—the iconic Disney animated film responsible for destroying childhood innocence everywhere—celebrated its 74th anniversary on Saturday. Drew Taylor of the website Oh My Disney dug into the production history of the 1942 classic. The film was the fifth feature released by Disney, and Taylor calls it the “synthesis” of the films that came before it: “[It utilizes] the formalism of Pinocchio and Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, the naturalism of Dumbo, and the gentle experimentalism of Fantasia.”

Based on a 1923 book by Viennese author Felix Salten called Bambi: A Life In The Woods, the Disney animators struggled to figure out how to tell a more amorphous story without a traditional fairy tale structure. The Bambi team wound up sequestered in another building while animators worked on Fantasia, Alice In Wonderland, and Peter Pan in the main studio. And a lengthy production period gave the team time ...

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: Animation Rules as ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ Soars to Record Heights

10 July 2016 2:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The twisty summer of 2016 is taking some surprising turns. Unexpectedly, the most recent new animated film, Universal/Illumination’s “The Secret Life of Pets,” topped $100 million for the weekend. That makes it the biggest ever opening for an original animated feature. It’s not quite the level Pixar sequel “Finding Dory” reached three weeks ago (the year’s highest-grosser is one of Disney’s biggest cartoon features), but its achievement is incredible. This one movie could make the summer box office, with some promising films still to come, not fall off as steeply from 2015.

The other opener, comedy “Mike and Dave’s Wedding Date” (Twentieth Century Fox) did about a sixth as well, about where it was expected. There is always room for comedy in the market, especially when the public could use a diversion. But that need is better served at the moment by the significantly more successful “Central Intelligence »

Bonhams sketches flesh out 16 potentially offensive characters that didn’t make the cut for the final seven in classic Disney animation

A display of concept drawings by the seminal movie artist Albert Hurter have shed new light on some of the rejected characters who didn’t make the cut in Walt Disney’s 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The final lineup – Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy and Dopey – was selected from a pool of around 50 brainstormed by his team; in the Grimms’ original 1812 story, the dwarves are anonymous.

‘Zootopia,’ ’13 Hours’ Take Two Top Spots on DVD, Blu-ray Disc Charts

15 June 2016 7:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two new releases took over the two top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ended June 12, led by Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia,” the animated “buddy cop” film about a rabbit cop and a red fox con that earned $338.4 million in U.S. theaters.

“Zootopia,” from Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the 55th film in the studio’s celebrated Disney Animated Classics line, which dates back to 1937’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

The film outsold second-ranked “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” from Paramount, by a margin of nearly six to one, according to Npd VideoScan data.

The Michael Bay-helmed “13 Hours,” a docudrama that follows six members of a security team who fight to defend the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012, debuted at No. 2 on both the VideoScan overall disc sales chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The film racked up a domestic theatrical gross of $52.9 million.

The previous week’s top seller, Lionsgate’s “Gods of Egypt,” slipped to No. 4 on both charts its second week of release, one spot behind 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool,” the superhero super-hit that spent three weeks at No. 1 before getting dislodged a week ago by “Gods,” an action movie about feuding Egyptian deities that grossed just $31.1 million in U.S. theaters.

Rounding out the top five on both charts was Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which has now spent 10 weeks in the top five.

“Zootopia” generated 60% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, compared to 63% for “13 Hours.”

Home Media Magazine market research shows that for the first five months of this year, Blu-ray Disc sales are up 3% in units sold and 6% in revenue.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart, “Deadpool” rose to No. 1 now that its 28-day holdback from Redbox is over, while “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” debuted at No. 2.

Gods of Egypt” slipped to No. 3 after having bowed at No. 1 on the rental chart the previous week.

Rounding out the top five are Universal Pictures’ “Ride Along 2” at No. 4 and another Universal film, the horror flick “The Boy,” at No. 5. “The Boy” also is a month-old release that just became available at Redbox last week.

2 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Congratulations -- you finally did it. You built a home movie theater and are dying to get it finished so you can watch "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" over and over and over again in the comfort of your own digs. Before you hunker down to witness Rey kicking some major Kylo Ren butt, though, you've gotta dress your space for success.

The screen is hung, the projector is purchased, and the movie collection is dusted off, so the big question is, how should you decorate the room? The choice to hang that "Hateful Eight" poster or a "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" commemorative plaque is super hard. So here are some tips and tricks to help you decide how to deck out your cinematic Shangri-la.

Comfortable Couches and Seats

The seating is no doubt one of the most important aspects of any home movie theater. What's the point »

Steven Spielberg Teases 'The Bfg,' Reveals All-Time Favorite Disney Movie

11 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Believe it or not, in his long, storied career, director Steven Spielberg had never made a movie for Disney. Until now.

His new film, "The Bfg," based on Roald Dahl's classic children's book about a Big Friendly Giant, will be released July 1st. The legendary director is featured in the summer issue of "Disney twenty-three" magazine, the quarterly publication of Disney's D23 fan club, and we've got an exclusive sneak peek. In an interview with the magazine, Spielberg shares details on making "The Bfg," working with the brilliant composer John Williams, his favorite Disney movie, and his excitement at finally collaborating with the Mouse House.

Filmmaker and self-pronounced cinephile Jacob T. Swinney has a new video essay called 100 Years/100 Shots. The title’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s about the history of Tequila in the 21st century.

Swinney has chosen his most memorable shot from each year in the last 100 and placed them next to each other in chronological sequence. Not only does it fascinatingly chart the evolution of the medium, it also reaffirms why we devote so much of our spare time to the movies.

‘Jungle Book’ Dilemma for Parents: Are Live-Action Movies Scarier Than Animated Ones?

15 April 2016 6:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Movies for children have long had their share of dark and even terrifying moments. In Disney’s 1937 animated classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the heroine ran through a hostile forest and ate a poison apple, while in 1942’s “Bambi,” a young deer’s beloved mother is shot and killed. But Disney’s new adaptation of “The Jungle Book,” hitting theaters Friday, ratchets up the scariness by abandoning the usual format of children’s movies: animation. And according to child psychiatrists, that can lead to even more nightmares for young audiences. “In a live-action film, humans give it another aspect of real, »

Disney planning live-action film about Snow White’s sister

1 April 2016 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney is set to make a new live-action Snow White film, although this one will revolve around her sister, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The new film is set to have a “revisionist” feel that would add Snow White’s sister Rose Red into the story. Justin Merz (The Boxcar Children) has written the script for the proposed project, from a pitch by Evan Daugherty.

Grimms’ fairy tales was where Rose Red first appeared, although her story had no links or relation to the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs story that was made into the classic (and first) Disney animated film in 1937.

Merz’s original story for Red was to be a more “stand-alone” film, but the new take by Daugherty has brought the story closer to the original animated film so it’s more of a “companion piece” that sees Rose Red and the dwarves undertaking a dangerous quest »

Snow White's Sister 'Rose Red' Is Getting a Disney Live-Action Movie

31 March 2016 4:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a string of successful live-action fairy tale adaptations such as Maleficent and last year's Cinderella, Disney is exploring yet another iconic character, with a revisionist twist. The Hollywood Reporter reveals the studio has picked up a project entitled Rose Red, which follows the story of Snow White's sister. While fairy tale fans may recognize the Rose Red name, the project will present an entirely new story.

Rose Red is a character who did appear in the original Grimm Brothers' fairy tale, but she was featured in a different adventure separate from the story which the iconic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was inspired by. This new project started as an original script by Justin Merz (The Boxcar Children), which was envisioned as a stand alone movie. Screenwriter Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman) came up with a different take described as a "companion piece" that sticks »

Disney's Live-Action Snow White Movie Will Approach The Story From A Whole New Angle

Fans of Snow White are not going to pleased. Following on from The Huntsman: Winter’s War’s decision to do away with Kristen Stewart’s Snow White entirely in favor that film's supporting players, we’ve now learned that Disney’s own live-action adaptation will instead primarily revolve around Snow White’s sister, Rose Red, instead of the traditional heroine. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has decided to pick up this project after being hugely impressed by a pitch by Evan Daugherty based on Justin Merz’s script. Usually overshadowed by her more famous sister, the character of Rose Red actually appeared in a number of The Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales. None of these were related to Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, which Disney iconically brought to life back in 1937. However, while Justin Merz originally wrote a »

Disney Hatches Live-Action Snow White Movie Centering On Rose Red

31 March 2016 12:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a time-honoured story that’s gone on to become a fixture of Disney’s prestigious archive – but what of her sister Rose Red?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the House of Mouse has hatched a live-action “companion piece” designed to tell the famous tale from the perspective of Rose, with screenwriter Justin Merz and Evan Daugherty – creative mind behind Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman – developing a revisionist take on the classic fairytale.

First appearing in Grimms’ legendary stories, Rose Red was a character originally introduced in a plot unrelated to the inimitable Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, where the two sisters sided with a friendly bear to bring an evil, out-of-control dwarf down to size.

This time round, Merz and Daugherty will be splicing the two stories together, implementing Rose into the classic Snow White tale we know and love »
