Walt Disney Biopic to Air on on PBS

22 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

PBS and American Experience are taking a look at the man behind the mouse and will air “Walt Disney,” a four-hour, two-night film that aims to explore the life and legacy of the iconic film producer and business magnate.

The film is spearheaded by biopic veterans director-producer Sarah Colt (“Rfk,” “Henry Ford”) and writer Mark Zwonitzer (“JFK,” “Triangle Fire”) and promises to showcase archival footage and interviews with artists who worked with him on “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and Imagineers who helped design Disneyland.

“For many Americans — and for me — the twinkle and swish of the Sunday night Disney logo was pure magic. It was an invitation to a special event,” said Beth Hoppe, chief programming officer and general manager, general audience programming for PBS. “For my kids, introducing them to animated Disney movies from ‘Beauty and the Beast’ to ‘The Lion King’ brought us great joy and taught them life lessons. »

Rob Reiner Reveals John Mayer Almost Worked on the Princess Bride Musical

8 July 2014 9:07 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve certainly got enough movie-to-stage adaptations going around with The Lion King, Aladdin, Cinderella, Newsies, Matilda, Rocky and more currently up and running, but that isn’t stopping anyone from churning out even more.  In fact, Disney’s in the process of bringing Frozen to Broadway, and after that film scored well over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, it’s hard to imagine that production being anything less than a major hit. The trend’s been around for a while and is poised to continue, so while at a roundtable interview with Rob Reiner for his upcoming film, And So It Goes, we discussed which of his films he thinks most deserves the Broadway treatment - The Princess Bride.  Hit the jump to find out who was once attached to work on it. When asked which of his films is best suited for the stage, Reiner didn't hesitate »

Quiz: Apes-a-Poppin'

7 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Monkeys and Hollywood have had a long and enduring relationship with each other. For whatever reason, monkeys have been involved in practically every type of film. They’ve portrayed benevolent figures in classic cartoons like The Jungle Book and The Lion King, and also played more sinister creatures like the Flying Monkeys in Wizard of Oz and the cunning apes of The Planet of the Apes.

This month brings the release of yet another ape-themed movie with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the highly-anticipated sequel to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. This addition to the long-running franchise follows Caesar (played by famed motion-capture actor Andy Serkis), the lead ape of the last film, as he leads a nation of intelligent apes in a rapidly evolving society. Gary Oldman stars as Dreyfus, a vengeful human hell-bent on making the apes pay for the death of his »

21 shocking straight-to-video sequels: How many have you seen?

5 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

What's the only thing worse than a sequel? The only prospect worse than paying £10 at your local cinema to have your favourite movie ruined, forever. The answer has three words. Straight-to-video.

In the '90s, home release sequels became fairly common. You'd greet them with surprise at your local Blockbusters and then want to pull your eyeballs out when you took them home and watched them. They're probably called straight-to-dvd or straight-to-Blu-ray now, but they still exist.

Here are 21 absolute stinking sequels - the vast majority of which weren't even considered good enough for the cinema. How many of them have you watched?

1. American Pie Presents: Band Camp

2. American Pie Presents: Beta House

Maybe it's the Eugene Levy factor - just why did he keep starring in all the sequels?! - but we have weird sentimentality for the American Pie home release collection. We know that they're not technically canon, »

Asking Questions: Miguel Garzón Martínez talks about Knot & Breaking Point

5 July 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Miguel Garzón Martínez about making thoughtful movies…

“My family has a background in construction and in business, but never in film or any form of art,” states Miguel Garzón Martínez .  “However, I have learned recently that construction is a kind of art and that you need to think like a businessman to finish a film.”  At an early age the native of Colombia became aware of cinema.  “I remember the first movie I ever saw was The Lion King [1994] with my mom and that I had nightmares for several weeks after watching Jurassic Park [1993]. If I had to mention two movies that left a strong impression in me, I would have to say that Pixar’s Up [2009] and Christopher Nolan’s Inception [2010] inspired me to pursue a career in filmmaking.”  Garzón recalls, “I bought a Dslr camera over five years ago and discovered the pleasures of still photography. »

An American boy and girl (Keith Coogan and Lucy Deakins) living in Kenya with their scientist parents adopt a female cheetah - Duma - only to realise that they must set her free so that she can learn to hunt and survive in the wild. However, when their pet is captured by poachers planning to race her against greyhounds, the two city kids, together with a young African goatherd they befriend, head off into the bush to rescue their fleet-footed friend. The sort of old fashioned family storytelling that Disney excelled at in Walt's day, this features the phrase "Hakuna matata" which became famous when Disney released The Lion King five years later. »

A Visit to the Real-Life Glee: The Jimmy Awards

The Shrek with braces was adorable. Actually, so were the other two Shreks. All three had played the chartreuse ogre in high-school productions of the 2008 musical: one at Calvary Chapel Christian in Las Vegas, the others at arts magnet programs in Rochester and Charlotte. Each had then been named Best Actor in a regional contest, and had been sent, along with 53 other high school performers from around the country (including two Jean Valjeans, two Drowsy Chaperones, and two Usnavis from In the Heights) to the big time: the National High School Musical Theater Awards competition in New York. Over the course of five days, working with Broadway professionals, they prepared for the final show-cum-showdown, presented Monday night at the Minskoff Theater, on the vacated set of The Lion King. It was just about the cutest thing that ever happened.Cute and instructive. In the first half, the students, in »
