The Governors Awards: The stars come out to honor cinema greats -- and maybe snag an Oscar nod in the process

14 November 2010 2:58 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you wanted a preview of what the Governors Ball will look like after the 83rd Annual Academy Awards air on Feb. 27, 2011, you simply needed to score a ticket to last night’s 2nd Annual Governors Awards. Inaugurated last year as a separate ceremony from the Academy Awards, the event is ostensibly designed to celebrate the Honorary Oscar and Irving Thalberg Award honorees in a more thoughtful and meaningful way than a seven minute TV segment. (It also, of course, helps to streamline the infamously bloated Oscar ceremony.) Honorary Oscar winners Jean-Luc Godard, Eli Wallach (pictured, left), and Kevin Brownlow »

23 October 2010 9:00 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

To celebrate October 19th's Blu-ray and DVD release of How to Train Your Dragon, the best animated film of the year, Dreamworks hosted a virtual roundtable with Directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois. They talk about everything from adapting the original books, to news about the upcoming sequel to the talent they sought to star in the film. Heck, they even expressed their love for animation legend Hayao Miyazaki and Pixar. To read the full text of the Q&A session, read on!

Q - You've directed both live action and animation; do you prefer one over the other?

A - Dean DeBlois: I love both equally. It's all storytelling at its core. Though I've directed a few live-action music and documentary films, Chris and I both have aspirations to direct live action narrative films. We're developing several as we speak.

Qa with How to Train Your Dragon's Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders

22 October 2010 8:46 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Last week, How to Train Your Dragon's directors Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders fielded questions from the media in a virtual roundtable discussion to promote the Blu-ray Disc and DVD release of the film (read our How to Train Your Dragon on Blu-ray review). Their many insightful responses are below.

You've directed both live action and animation; do you prefer one over the other?

Dean DeBlois: I love both equally. It's all storytelling at its core. Though I've directed a few live-action music and documentary films, Chris and I both have aspirations to direct live action narrative films. We're developing several as we speak.

Chris Sanders: Although I constantly have a camera in hand, I have yet to direct a live-action film, but am very much looking forward to it. I think different stories thrive in different formats and some stories work best in animation, while others »

Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois Talk How to Train Your Dragon

15 October 2010 12:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The co-directors of the DreamWorks Animation hit discuss the movie and the new DVD and Blu-ray

How to Train Your Dragon was certainly a bit hit at the box office, grossing over $200 million domestic and nearly $500 million worldwide. That massive success looks to continue this weekend when the movie arrives on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow in a rare Friday release on October 15. To celebrate this new DVD release, Paramount Home Entertainment put on a nifty "virtual junket, where we were able to watch one of the special features on the disc - a comprehensive hour-long documentary which takes us from script to screen on the movie - and we were also able to pose questions to co-directors Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders.

We reported earlier this week that the sequel, How to Train Your Dragon 2, was announced and a new TV series was also announced this week as well. »

To Celebrate The Opening Of Secretariat, Check Out Some Fan Favorite Horse Movies.

7 October 2010 7:54 AM, PDT | AMC - Script to Screen | See recent AMC - Script to Screen news »

When I was a kid my parents used to take me to the now demolished Bay Meadows Racetrack in the Bay Area. It was there that I gained an appreciation and love for horses. Oh sure, I learned all about betting on them, and odds, and all the things kids my age weren't supposed to be learning, but the sight of watching these majestic creatures racing on the track was a glorious one to behold for me. I think my parents always took me with them because they knew how much I enjoyed watching them. That and I was really good at picking straight bet winners.

Horses, to me, are the most majestic of creatures. They're used to race, to work, to show, and as transportation for many, many centuries. They're gorgeous animals that tend to form quite a bond with their riders and owners. Horses have been the main »

Your Daily Fix Of Oscar: 10/7/10

6 October 2010 11:23 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Women and Hollywood: Melissa Silverstein can’t quite believe her eyes as “a feminist fall at the movies” begins to take shape thanks to many films “that have women leads who seem to be, well, quite feminist.” Among them: “Conviction,” “Fair Game,” “For Colored Girls,” “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest,” “I Am Love,” “Made in Dagenham,” “Secretariat,” and “The Tempest,” to name just a few.

IndieWire: Peter Knegt offers up 10 “underdog actresses for your consideration,” purposely excluding those whose work already “looks like a good bet for a nomination.” The list includes: Dale Dickey (“Winter’s Bone”), Chloe Moretz (“Let Me In”), Tilda Swinton (“I Am Love”), Mia Wasikowska in “The Kids Are All Right,” Jacki Weaver (“Animal Kingdom”), and Olivia Williams (“The Ghost Writer”). Quite a group.

AMPAS to honor Francis Ford Coppola

25 August 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will honor Francis Ford Coppola, Eli Wallach, French director Jean-Luc Godard and preservationist Kevin Brownlow during its second annual Governors Awards in November.

Coppola, a five-time Oscar winner for "Patton" and his first two "Godfather" movies, will receive the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, given to a producer for his or her body of work. Although best known as a writer and director, Coppola founded indie production company American Zoetrope in 1969; it has produced more than 30 films including "The Black Stallion," "The Outsiders," "Lost in Translation" and "The Good Shepherd."

Honorary Academy Awards will be presented to Wallach, Godard and Brownlow.

Wallach, 94, who recently appeared in "The Ghost Writer" and appears in the upcoming "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," never has been honored by the Academy -- in fact, he never has been nominated. But his resume includes such classics as "Baby Doll, »

Lions and Tigers and Bears...oh my! The 5 most frightening killer animal flicks

18 August 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Animals are our furry, cuddly companions, unflaggingly loyal and pure of spirit - except for when they want to eat us, that is. And if Hollywood right about one thing, and let's face it they might be one of these days, that urge to kill may happen more often than we like to think.

Hey, cycle of life, man. Sunrise, sunset.

Recently we looked at the best live-action animal movies, such as Babe and The Black Stallion. Now it's time to visit the other end of the spectrum ... if you dare. With Piranha 3D swimming into theaters and zooming right into your face, here's a look at the best of what happens when animals attack! »

Director Aaron Schneider and Producer Dean Zanuck Interview Get Low

31 July 2010 7:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

An 8-year labor of love for producer Dean Zanuck (Road to Perdition), Get Low is an entertaining and colorful story about one man’s last-ditch quest for redemption inspired by an eccentric 1930s Tennessee hermit known as Felix “Bush,” who famously came out of hiding to throw his own funeral party while he was still very much alive and kicking.

Based on a screenplay written by Chris Provenzano (Mad Men) and C. Gaby Mitchell (Blood Diamond), Get Low is directed by Aaron Schneider, a talented young filmmaker who makes his feature debut after winning the Academy Award for his short, Two Soldiers. The film features a terrific cast that includes Robert Duvall as the mysterious backwoods recluse, Bill Murray as the fast-talking funeral home owner who senses a big payday in the offing, Lucas Black as his young apprentice, and Sissy Spacek as a lonely widow and the only person »

Spielberg Sends Emily Watson And David Thewlis Into World War I For War Horse

17 June 2010 12:39 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Of the many upcoming films Steven Spielberg has waiting in varying stages of production, War Horse may be the one people are least excited about. So of course it.ll be the next one in theaters. War Horse will be Spielberg.s first movie to hit screens since he raped Indiana Jones. Empire says he.s started casting and hired a group of Brits to star in his film. Emily Watson, Peter Mullan, David Thewlis and Benedict Cumberbatch are all on board with unknown Jeremy Irvine as the movie.s lead. War Horse is about the friendship between a boy and a horse separated during the Great War. That.s World War I for all you non-readers. Their fates continue to be intertwined as the trench war across Europe rages on. I.m assuming it.s kind of like The Black Stallion meets Saving Private Ryan. »

First Look: Oscar heading to the races with 'Secretariat'

28 April 2010 12:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Like baseball and football, Hollywood has had an affinity with horse racing movies. From "National Velvet" to "Seabiscuit" to "The Black Stallion" there has been something about a sport that combines graceful and beautiful thoroughbreds with the ability to get rich quick that has intrigued moviegoers.  Now, Walt Disney is bringing the story of one of the most famous champions ever to the big screen in "Secretariat." Directed by Randall Wallace ("We Were Soldiers"), the bio pic tells the story of Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) who won racing's prestigious triple crown in 1973 behind the speed and strength of Secretariat.  John »

Easter Goodies from 20th Century-Fox and MGM

2 April 2010 2:19 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and MGM Home Entertainment has released Easter-themed family friendly fare complete with Easter Basket Approved! stickers. 

At More Easter Fun there are Easter activities including downloadable character coloring pages, coupons, games, and a chance to win a $50,000 Nest Egg.

The titles involved include

Alvin and the Chipmunks                                  

Horton Hears A Who                                                      

Ice Age                                                        

Ice Age: The Meltdown                               

Night at the Museum   

The Black Stallion                                

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang                                      

The Pink Panther 2                                                        

The Secret of Nimh

Personally, we here at ComicMix can recommend the Ice Age films for modern day humor and The Secret of Nimh as a fun, underrated animated escapade. And while Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is based on the Ian Fleming book and features that nifty car, it was too long and devoid of magic.
