Prepare to have your world come crashing down, because there is a Disney theory that's sure to upend everything you thought you knew. There is nothing the Internet loves more than finding crazy theories about the movies we love. No matter how many times we re-watch Disney and Pixar classics, there will always be Tumblr accounts digging into the cameos and references we may have missed. This Tumblr theory (which was brought to our attention via Someecards), points to a connection between Beauty and the Beast (1991) and Aladdin (1992) that most fans probably never noticed. It's in a seemingly innocuous scene in Beauty and the Beast when Belle visits a local bookstore to return a book she »
As Hollywood struggles to reinvent their array of superheroes with each iteration, it’s no surprise that audiences would become hungry for something off the beaten path. While it’s not the first post-modern comic-book adaptation, Deadpool is billed as ushering in a new direction: a fan-spurred, self-aware tentpole that’s R-rated to its core, featuring a wise-ass character (don’t call him a superhero) who’s fully cognizant of his outsider status in both the world he inhabits and Hollywood’s comic-book sandbox writ large. Despite the excess of fourth-wall-breaking continually reminding us of both, Tim Miller‘s directorial debut ultimately ends up feeling like another similarly structured, monotonous origin story, albeit with a more vulgar veneer.
Scripted by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland), and based on Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld‘s original comic series, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, a former special ops soldier with a 40+ kill streak. »

If you look at the worldwide box office grosses from 1970 onwards there are sequels aplenty, but other than a King Kong (1976) or a Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), remakes were relatively thin on the ground until the 1990s.
Between 1991 and 1995, there were retellings of Dracula and Robin Hood, animated versions of Beauty And The Beast and Aladdin plus big screen versions of The Fugitive and The Flintstones. Each adaptation was among the top 10 earners in their respective years, and their combined box office exceeded a billion dollars.
When Mission: Impossible (1996) proved you didn’t need even a tenuous link to the source material, Hollywood appeared to go on a shopping spree, buying up the rights to remake everything in sight, be it a half-remembered TV show, foreign imports or old horror movies whose reputation exceeded their quality.
As the spree continued, standards slipped until it became apparent that »

Tim Burton and Disney have a long-standing relationship. He was, after all, notoriously fired by Disney while making the 1984 black & white short Frankenweenie, which would later become a feature-length Stop-Motion adventure for the studio. Before that, he worked as an uncredited animator on the 1981 classic The Fox and the Hound and the live-action 1982 sci-fi cult classic Tron. He has since reunited with the studio to direct the live-action blockbuster smash hit Alice in Wonderland in 2010. And in 2018, he will bestow the world with his live-action/CGI adaptation of Dumbo. But now, one enterprising artist as set out to discover what 10 classic Disney animated movies may have looked like with Tim Burton steering the wheel.
Andrew Tarusov, an artist and animator from Moscow, has designed a special set of movie posters. These ten images even include Dumbo as they set out to reimagine and recreate some of the greatest animated movies of all time. »
Tucked quietly alongside the headline-making Sundance premieres of Nate Parker's Birth of a Nation and Kenneth Lonergan's Manchester by the Sea was a decidedly less-flashy, but no less-important film: Life, Animated, what might be one of the most affecting documentaries to ever premiere at the festival. Life, Animated is the story of Owen Suskind, the son of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind and his wife, Cornelia. Owen is a boy with autism who memorized dozens of Disney animated movies, which helped him learn how to communicate after years of silence. Directed by Academy Award-winner Roger Ross Williams and produced by Julie Goldman, the documentary explores Owen's love affair with movies like Aladdin, Peter Pan, Bambi, Beauty and the Beast, and more, and how these films became to a key to freeing him from the isolation of his own mind. Vulture sat down with Owen (now 23, living on his »

It sounds like Ariel may have started a trend. Though they're usually the leading characters in their films, Disney princesses speak less than male characters in their movies, according to research reported by The Washington Post. Linguists analyzing the Disney princess franchise found that after The Little Mermaid (1989), many princess films followed the trend of having less dialogue from female characters. Male characters speak 68 percent of the time in The Little Mermaid. Granted, Ariel is mute through much of her movie, but what about these other female characters? According to the reported data, men speak 71 percent of the time in Beauty and the Beast, 76 percent of the time in »
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, »
Starring in HBO's hit series, The Sopranos, when she was 20 years old, actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler was "on top of the world." Though she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease the year before, the actress had taken antibiotics "and things had started to go away," she says. "Then I started to feel this heaviness and tingling in my legs. I remember we were in my apartment in New York and the doctor called my dad and he said, 'Your daughter has Ms. But there's no reason to believe that she can't live a perfectly happy, healthy life," she recalls.
