John Lasseter talks about Japanese inspirations

27 October 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Walt Disney chief creative officer (Cco) John Lasseter talked about the influences of Japan, its art and Hayao Miyazaki’s animation in particular on his work, Pixar and even in winning his wife’s hand at a talk on “Cool Japan” held by the Tokyo International Film Festival on Friday.

Asked to hold the talk by his friend Toshio Suzuki of Studio Ghibli, Lasseter said, “I started looking through the old photographs of my trips to Japan. I’m very emotional about this talk about what a huge influence the country of Japan its people and my friend Hayao Miyazaki had on me.”

He described how his earliest exposure to Japan was with cartoons that he didn’t even know were from the country at first, and how his frustration later on in life as a Disney animator in a Hollywood where animation was just seen as “for kids” was solved when he first met with Miyazaki »

I’ll Be Back: 10 movie sequels that were better than the original

25 October 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Thirty years ago today, James Cameron’s The Teminator dominated the box office on its opening day.

Though the Arnold Schwarzenegger action film is now considered a modern classic, it’s not exactly the best film in its franchise.

In the intervening nine years between The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) became a hard-willed warrior, determined to protect her son John Connor and the future of humanity. That’s one big step up from her colourless, sometimes hysterical demeanour in The Terminator. Already Terminator 2 is the better movie.

Terminator isn’t the only franchise that has a high-achieving younger sibling. Let’s go through some of our favourites.

 

Aliens

James Cameron makes a good sequel. Unfortunately, his follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi thriller Alien was postponed for years while Cameron wrote and directed The Terminator and Rambo: First Blood Part II. We’re very »

Battle Royale - Throwback Thrills: Round 3 Results

24 October 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

From flying monkeys to pink elephants, we’ve picked some of the most memorable throwback thrills for this month’s Battle Royale. We narrowed down the list to thirty-two, but it’s up to you to pick the winner.

We’re down to four. Yes, our semi-finalists for Battle Royale have been chosen.

These are the four scenes you’ve chosen as the scariest, most terrifying, most traumatizing scenes in movies that are (apparently) made for kids:

 

 

So far it’s looks like nothing can beat Other Mother from Coraline. With her perfect hair and cold, plastic stare, she took down a t-rex. Musical heavyweights The Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory also went head-to-head this round, and Wonka’s boat ride scared off the Wicked Witch’s winged monkeys.

Match-ups have been won by a mere handful of votes. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban »

John Lasseter Hails Hayao Miyazaki, Japan and the Joy of Juxtaposition

24 October 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tokyo — Invited to speak in Tokyo as part of the ‘Cool Japan’ cultural promotion drive, animator John Lasseter delivered a heart-felt and deeply personal tribute to Japan, Japanese film culture, and fellow animation icon Hayao Miyazaki.

“Thank you, Japan for making me who I am,” he said by way of conclusion in front of a packed theatre at the Tokyo International Film Festival on Friday.

The speech was carefully written and enthusiastically presented by a Lasseter who clearly intended to educate as much as he was there to promote. Lasseter is chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studio, and DisneyToon Studios.

He included early photographs of himself and fellow student animators at California Institute of the Arts, showed a clip of Miyazaki’s “Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro,” which he described as “clever and economical” animation, but with depth. And then described how »

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

Fox 2000 Developing ‘What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night’ Movie

21 October 2014 6:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 is developing the children’s photo book “What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night” as a movie, setting it up with producer Karen Rosenfelt.

The toys-come-to-life tale, to be released next week by Little Brown and Co., is authored by parents Refe and Susan Tuma. The two began creating scenes each November for their children about the “secret lives” of their plastic dinosaur toys.

Similar to “Toy Story,” the toys wound up wrecking bathrooms, destroying vases and even doing the dishes.

Rosenfelt, whose has a first-look deal at Fox 2000, has credits on “Marley and Me,” the last three “Twilight” films and the two “Percy Jackson” movies.

Erin Siminoff and Nikki Ramey are overseeing for Fox 2000. ICM Partners repped the book in the deal.

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Check out the Trailer for Monsters University Short Film, “Party Central”; Watch the Full Short Now for Free on Disney Movies Anywhere

21 October 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier this year, the Monsters University short film "Party Central" played in front of Muppets Most Wanted, and if you didn't catch that film (and judging by the movie's box office, you didn't), you now have a chance to watch the short online for free.  The story has Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) using a door station to clandestinely move a frat party over at Ror to Oozma Kappa.  If you ignore the fact that (unlike the Toy Story shorts) there's no way for this one to factor into the movie's timeline, and that it's out of character for the monsters to risk being caught by humans, this is a fairly amusing short.  It's certainly worth seeing for free if you download the Disney Movies Anywhere app for iPhone or iPad. Hit the jump to check out the Monsters University Party Central trailer.  The short also features the voices of Charlie Day, »

Battle Royale - Throwback Thrills: Round 2 Results

20 October 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

There were a lot of surprises in the second round of our throwback thrill Battle Royale.

Who would have guessed The Land Before Time's Sharptooth would beat out the 80's babies' greatest nightmare: Skesis from The Dark Crystal? It was a close race, but nowhere near that between Who Framed Roger Rabbit's Judge Doom and Toy Story's Sid. The preteen terror won out with only a handful more votes.

Live action films having been dominating the race, with The Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory beating out Fantasia and Dumbo, respectively.

But don’t discount animated movies! The Lion King, Coraline, The Land Before Time, and Toy Storyare still in the running – and they sure are scary.

What throwback thrill do you think will win the Battle Royale? Let us know in the comments below, and check out our bracket for a sneak peek at round three's matchups! »

Peek behind the scenes of 'How to Train Your Dragon,' past and future

16 October 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

How to Train Your Dragon is different than your typical animated franchise. While there have been more-successful blockbusters that yielded sequels—like Toy Story or Shrek—Dragon was slightly more ambitious from the outset because it almost immediately mapped out a heroic multi-picture arc for its main character, Hiccup, treating him like Harry Potter or Luke Skywalker. In the second film, which arrives as a digital download on Oct. 21 and on DVD on Nov. 11, Hiccup is five years older than when he first met Toothless, his jet-black Night Fury dragon, and director Dean DeBlois and his team of animators spent »

Dinosaurs & Toys: New Posters!

15 October 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here bringing you a double dose of dino-related posters. Jurassic Park and Toy Story, two seminal early 90s smashes continue to make waves in 2014. This shouldn't be so surprising seeing as they both function as perfect metaphors for Hollywood, one premised on the ability to bring back to life the dead and forgotten, the other quite literally representing a world where our cherished toys get a big screen treatment.

Jurassic Park, as we know is headed for a splashy 2015 summer sequel. Word on Jurassic World has been quiet (give or take a couple of pics of Chris Pratt in a body-hugging Henley) but since we are only eight months away (!), it’s clear publicity for the film will start kicking into high gear. This is necessary as they’ll be busy dropping plot hints and opening dates and casting rumors for the inevitable sequel by the time the film is actually in theaters. »

First Look at ABC’s New Toy Story Holiday Special

14 October 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last year, ABC aired Pixar’s first television special with the Halloween-themed Toy Story of Terror! This year, Woody, Buzz, and the gang are back for another holiday special called Toy Story That Time Forgot, which will debut on Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. Et on ABC.

A lot of holiday specials feel forced or really disjointed from the worlds established in the films they’re based on, but Toy Story of Terror! was a really fun and fitting adventure for these characters. I have no doubt that this new special will deliver the goods as well. Here’s the synopsis:

After a post-Christmas play date, the Toy Story gang finds themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. If the gang hopes to return to Bonnie’s room, they’ll have to rely on Trixie the triceratops.

Battle Royale - Throwback Thrills: Round 1 Results

14 October 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We're almost half-way through October, our very favourite month of the year. With the colourful changing foliage, the ever-present pumpkin everything and of course, the thrills and chills of Halloween, there's just something about the tenth month of the year that makes us truly giddy with excitement and nostalgia.

So we decided to take the obvious opportunity to cast our minds back and revisit some of our most memorable and chilling childhood moments. Cinematic ones, that is; we don't intend for this stroll down memory lane to result in the need for a therapeutic share circle for anyone. Though given how many of our chosen scenes still bring us shivers and chills decades later, we wouldn't be surprised if we all needed a hug when this Battle Royale is all wrapped up. But is there a film/scene that stands out above the rest? Which moment can we point to and say "yes, »
