Bryan Singer Now In A Race To Get '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea'!

5 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Poor Bryan Singer. It seems like every time he goes off to work on one project, he misses the boat on one he really wanted to work on. Maybe he needs a better manager. Ten years ago, he really wanted to direct X-men: The Last Stand, but then a dream gig presented itself, and he went off to do Superman Returns. He told Fox that if they could just wait a bit, he'd definitely come back for that film. Sr ended up being a bit of a sore spot for his career and Fox, in the meantime, made X-men: The Last Stand without him- a move they, too, would regret.

Then there was a remake of Logan's Run that Singer had been talking about for years upon years. Somehow or other, that movie is getting made...without him. 

This brings us to 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. He's been talking up »

Your Old Disney VHS Tapes Might Be Worth Way More Than You Ever Expected

22 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Feeding off of people's love for nostalgia can make you some serious money these days. If you have any old Disney VHS tapes collecting dust, you're about to be rich (maybe). It looks as though our childhood favorites like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Little Mermaid are going for hundreds, even thousands of dollars on eBay. The people posting these pricey relics appear to be those who own "rare" copies, such as The Little Mermaid VHS with that naughty, eggplant emoji-themed cover art. Although, they're not exactly that rare. Walk into any garage sale or thrift store you'll definitely run into them. Why someone would pay that much for a VHS tape your parents probably still have at their »

20 years ago today: Disney’s own outcast, ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame,’ premiered

21 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Has it really been 20 years since Hunchback of Notre Dame hit theaters? Oui, c'est vrai!  The 34th animated feature from the House of Mouse, Hunchback has a place among the Disney Renaissance movies of the 1990s, though it tends to be less remembered and celebrated than the likes of The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Mulan. Adapted from Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel, it’s darker than many Disney pics, and the only animated movie from the studio that’s had a major focus on themes of religion and faith. Though the filmmakers “were told to not make the movie too religious — a pretty daunting task when you consider how much of this story takes place inside of a big church,” animator Floyd Norman said. Hunchback of Notre Dame also had an outcast hero that didn’t look like dashing princes of Disney films past.

No watering, no sun, nothing. Perfect for those days when you're stuck in a gloomy castle with a giant, hairy beast. Curious about how it works?

5 Things Disney Fans Learned From Growing Up On the Classics

17 June 2016 12:35 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Disney is one of the most recognizable symbols in the entire world. It doesn’t matter if you’re American, there is a Disneyland Paris, Disneyland Hong Kong, a Shanghai Disney resort,  a Tokyo Disney resort, and a Hawaii Disney resort and spa in addition to the original Disneyland in Anaheim and the Disney World resort in Florida.

The magic that is Disney and all of its cartoons is a magic that transcends culture, entrances people, compels them to drive hundreds of miles in a vehicle that’s been through a life of love and hard-earned miles, and draws people back into reminiscing about their childhoods. Disney is basically synonymous with happiness. Those who grew up watching the classics learned a lot of valuable life lessons. Though there are many, here are just 6 things fans took away from the Disney classics:

15 years ago today: ‘Atlantis: The Lost Empire’ and ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’ premiered

15 June 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

15 years ago today, Disney and Angelina Jolie both gave us new movies. It was on June 15, 2001 that Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider opened in theaters. The two films topped the box office that weekend, with Lara Croft holding the top spot. The Disney Renaissance had ended, and Atlantis didn’t live up to the quality of films the House of Mouse was putting out in the ’90s like Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. Atlantis didn’t get much praise from critics upon its release, and it hasn’t amassed as strong a fandom as films in the pantheon of Disney greats have. Though it does have a cult favorite status among Disney movies, and some critics praised it for being a unique departure from typical Disney animated features, with its sci-fi influences and look based on the visual style of Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. Lara Croft has remained a memorable item on Angelina Jolie’s resume — it’s the movie that really established her as a Hollywood star. At the time of its release, it was the highest-grossing video game adaptation. Another movie based on the Tomb Raider game series is set to star Ex Machina actress Alicia Vikander. Other notable June 15 happenings in pop culture history: • 1960: Billy Wilder’s The Apartment premiered. • 1963: The Sound of Music closed on Broadway after 1,443 performances. • 1966: Elvis Presley movie Paradise, Hawaiian Style opened in U.S. theaters. • 1983: The fifth and final season finale of Taxi aired. • 1988: Kevin Costner’s sports rom-com movie Bill Durham was released. • 1990: Dick Tracy opened in theaters. • 1994: The Lion King started playing in Los Angeles’ El Capitan Theatre and New York’s Radio City Music Hall, ahead of a wide release later that month. • 2005: Batman Begins opened in theaters. • 2007: Bob Barker hosted The Price is Right for the final time, ending his 35-year tenure on the show. • 2008: At the 62nd Tony Awards, In the Heights (from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda) won Best Musical. »

Jeffrey Katzenberg Receives Annecy’s First – and Surprise – Golden Ticket Award

15 June 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A surprised but moved Jeffrey Katzenberg received the Annecy Festival’s first Golden Ticket Award on Wednesday in recognition of his services to animation. The honor had been kept secret from Katzenberg, who is at Annecy to support a strong DreamWorks Animation presence.

A lifelong supporter of Annecy, Katzenberg’s Golden Ticket now gives him a lifelong pass to the Festival. The surprise presentation took place at the end of a keynote masterclass by Guillermo del Toro, who spent much of its second part talking with Katzenberg about DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming family series “Trollhunters” before a standing-room-only audience in Annecy’s central theater, the 1,000-seat Grande Salle Bonnie.

“This is a set-up,” Katzenberg joked, as Annecy Fest artistic director Marcel Jean came on stage to ask what his career highlights had been so far and as a show-reel featuring DreamWorks and Disney animated films and talking heads such as Steven Spielberg began to play on a big screen.

After a standing ovation, Katzenberg recounted how, in 1984, on his first day at Disney as head of Walt Disney Studios, he had a meeting with CEO Michael Eisner in the office once occupied by Walt Disney. At its end, Eisner motioned him over to the window and pointed to a building across the street. “That’s where they make the animated movies. It’s also your problem,” Katzenberg recalled Eisner telling him.

Despite being neither a student nor fan of animated films at the time, Katzenberg said, animation became “my passion and love,” yielding “30-something years of incredible happiness and joy.”

“Not only has Jeffrey been a longtime collaborator and supporter of all of us here in Annecy, his track-record in animation is nothing short of legendary,” Jean said in a statement.

He added: “From reviving the industry with such critically acclaimed films like ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘The Lion King,’ to launching DreamWorks Animation and giving us such memorable characters in films like ‘Shrek,’ ‘Madagascar,’ ‘Kung Fu Panda’ and ‘How to Train Your Dragon,’ there is no one more deserving of lifetime pass to our festival.”

The award comes less than two months after Comcast’s NBCUniversal confirmed its purchase of DreamWorks Animation, the company that Katzenberg launched in 1994 and that’s now often mentioned in the same breath as Disney or Pixar.

Under the Comcast purchase terms, Katzenberg will now segue from his position as head of DreamWorks Animation to head up a newly created division, DreamWorks New Media, made up of Awesomeness TV and Nova.

But it remains to be seen whether Katzenberg will ever sever completely his connections with the animation world.

‘Pete’s Dragon’ Trailer: David Lowery’s Live-Action Reimagining of the Animated Classic Takes Flight

14 June 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With live-action versions of “Pete’s Dragon,” “Winnie the Pooh” and “Beauty and the Beast” all on the way, Disney is ramping up its live-action blitz. Co-writer/director David Lowery’s reimagining of the 1977 animated/live-action hybrid about a boy and his fire-breathing friend is first, which should come as welcome news to anyone who saw his 2013 Sundance hit “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints.” The first full trailer is now available.

It begins with Bryce Dallas Howard and Wes Bentley’s characters discovering Pete himself, a little boy who’s been living alone in the forest for six years — well, alone except for his dragon Elliott, who can turn invisible at will and looks considerably more easygoing than Drogon. Robert Redford, Karl Urban and Oakes Fegley all co-star.
