14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The stage musical adaptation of Disney animated megahit “Frozen” is targeting a Broadway opening in spring 2018, following an out-of-town tryout in the summer of 2017, with exact dates still to be nailed down.

Directed by Alex Timbers (“Here Lies Loves,” “The Pee-wee Herman Show”), the production reunites three key members of the movie’s creative team: songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”), who’ll pen additional original songs for the stage incarnation, and screenwriter and co-director Jennifer Lee, who will write the musical’s book.

Peter Darling, the choreographer who won a Tony for “Billy Elliot” and is currently represented on Broadway with “Matilda,” will choreograph, part of a creative team that will also include Disney regulars Bob Crowley (“Mary Poppins,” “Aladdin,” “An American in Paris”) and Natasha Katz (“Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid,” “School of Rock”).

80s Comedy Movie Trailers Recut as Dramas and Horror Movies

27 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ever since I saw the Mary Poppins horror trailer a number of years ago, I’ve always been on the lookout for awesome re-cut trailers. While I’m not sure any will match that one, or the comedy one for The Shining, there have been some great mashups out there. You gotta love when Brokeback Mountain came out and there were dozens of Brokeback re-cuts. And for some reason I’ve been in an 80s comedy movie kind of mood lately. With that said I thought I’d poke around Youtube to see if there were any comedy trailers turned non-comedy that would be

Ranking All 80 Winners of Best Original Song (Plus Where This Year's Contenders Would Place)

22 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here with a look at everybody’s favourite category – best original song! Okay, so, sure, even if this year’s roster for best original song doesn’t look like a vintage one for the category, there’s actually some fun to be had when you consider who will win.

Will Diane Warren finally win an Oscar on her eighth nomination? And how strange will it be to see her win for a song from a documentary about sexual abuse alongside Lady Gaga rather than one of the chart-busting hit-singles that her first six nominations were for (lest we forget, Beyond the Lights’ “Grateful” didn’t chart because, well, Rita Ora). Will an opera tune win for the first time? No work of opera has ever been nominated if my research is correct, which is kinda neat even though I think the song is dirge (albeit appropriately so for the »

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, »

Frank Armitage, Disney Artist and Illustrator for Fox’s ‘Fantastic Voyage,’ Dies at 91

7 January 2016 2:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Frank Armitage, an artist and production illustrator who made contributions to Disney classics including “Sleeping Beauty” and “Mary Poppins” — as well as to Fox feature “Fantastic Voyage,” whose visual effects wowed audiences in 1966 — died Monday of age-related causes in Paso Robles, Calif., according to Disney Animation Studios VP of communications Howard Green. He was 91.

He also provided artwork and designs to theme parks around the world.

The native of Melbourne, Australia, moved in 1952 to Los Angeles and found a job at Walt Disney Studios, where he contributed to “Peter Pan” (1953), “Sleeping Beauty” (1959), 1964’s live action-animation hybrid “Mary Poppins” and “The Jungle Book” (1967).

After leaving the company, Armitage worked to apply cinematic techniques to human anatomy. He was thus the perfect person to do the production illustration for “Fantastic Voyage,” the innovative sci-fi film which follows a submarine and its crew that are shrunk to microscopic size so the ship may »
