August. It's Nearly a Wrap

29 August 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The eighth month of the year is -- we've reached the final third of 2016 already? That was quick. Fall film season here we come. Summer was dreadful for movies unless you were smart and caught platform releases like Little Men, The Fits, Captain Fantastic, Morris From America, Disorder instead of the big budget spectacles. In fact, 2016 is shaping up to be a very rough year for mainstream cinema which could make the Oscars disastrous if they don't get creative and look further afield than they're usually prone to. We shall see.

This past month we've been celebrating 1984 for the Smackdown (coming your way Wednesday) but here are some other highlights in case you missed any.

• The Art of Disavowing Your Film No, Jared Leto, no. 

• The Lobster's Phony Flowers another great episode of The Furniture

• Beauty vs Beast Bridesmaids Wiig or Byrne. Tough choice, right?

Where Did 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' Go Wrong?

31 May 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Like a heroine tumbling through the rabbit hole, Disney took its own great fall this past weekend, as prospective tentpole Alice Through the Looking Glass coughed up a meager $34 million at the box-office in its opening days of release. A paltry sum in comparison to the $116 million opening weekend that Tim Burton's 2010 original "dark" fairy tale garnered, this sequel's poor showing registered as a sizable blip in Disney's ledgers. Floppier than the average flop, Disney's new folly provided industry competitors and common filmgoers several valuable lessons about how movies are made and sold. »

Disney Still Plans Live-Action "Little Mermaid"

25 May 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Walt Disney Pictures is continuing plans for live-action remakes of practically every animated feature in their library, and now Deadline reports that the studio is considering a recent pitch for a live-action "The Little Mermaid" film.

The original 1989 animated feature kicked off a renaissance for the studio which had struggled with animated features before that point and then suddenly had a successful run of them afterwards with the likes of "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin" and "The Lion King".

With 'Mermaid,' initial discussions have reportedly taken place with major producers, but the studio has yet to move forward with the idea. One reason is that Universal and Working Title are already developing their own "Little Mermaid" project based on the original Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale with Chloe Grace Moretz set to star and Rebecca Thomas directing from a script by Richard Curtis.

New Disney Peter Pan movie on the way. The studio line-up another of their previously produced animated films for the live-action treatment.

The Walt Disney Company are planning a new live-action Peter Pan movie, continuing their run on reviving their most beloved animated tales. More on the new Disney Peter Pan movie below.

Following on from the likes of Maleficent, Cinderella and the magnificent The Jungle Book, which opens in cinemas across the world this week, Disney are looking at producing a live-action Peter Pan tale, which the studio has previously brought to the screen back in 1953 in animated form. David Lowrey (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and the forthcoming Pete’s Dragon), will team with screenwriter Toby Halbrooks for the planned project.

The Mouse House also has live-action fares Beauty and the Beast, Cruella, Maleficent 2, Dumbo, Mulan, Winnie the Pooh, Pinocchio, Genies, Night on Bald Mountain and The Sword in the Stone, »

Live action fairytale movies: UK release date calendar

When to expect all the upcoming live action fairytale movies, including Dumbo, Beauty And The Beast and two Jungle Books…

You’ve probably noticed the influx of live action fairytales gracing cinemas in recent years. This isn’t about to stop any time soon, since re-spinning a recognisable fantastical yarn with real people instead of animated ones always makes big money for the studio behind it.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)

Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »

5 Disney Villains Whose Origin Stories We Want to See

7 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With the news that Emma Stone is in talks to play Cruella de Vil in a movie exploring the character's origins - a movie pitch that presumably followed in the wake of Maleficent's success - we started thinking about some of our other favorite Disney villains whose origins we'd like to see explored in feature-length form. Ursula, from The Little Mermaid Obviously, it's just going to be called Ursula, and Colton Haynes already did the costume about as well as anyone could, so let's just give it to him. Apparently, the film's original script called for Bea Arthur to voice the character, »
