Academy Considering Going Back to Only Five Best Picture Nominees

14 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This doesn't surprise me in the least, but I personally don't believe it's a good idea. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting the Academy is considering a move back to only five Best Picture nominees after opening the field to ten nominees back in 2009 when then Academy president Sid Ganis said, "Having 10 Best Picture nominees is going to allow Academy voters to recognize and include some of the fantastic movies that often show up in the other Oscar categories, but have been squeezed out of the race for the top prize." The decision came shortly after films such as The Dark Knight and Wall-e did not receive Best Picture nominations at the 2009 Oscars. The THR report says a large portion of the Academy's governing board has been pushing for the change behind the scenes, arguing that having too many best picture nominees has watered down the prestige of a nomination and »

Finding Dory: What We Know So Far

27 February 2015 1:43 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sequels. A few years back, Pixar found themselves heavily involved in the sequels game. Toy Story 2 wasn.t the exception anymore. Cars begat Cars 2. Monsters Inc. gave way to Monsters University. A third and fourth Toy Story became realities. And now, Finding Nemo is getting a sequel. or, at least, a spinoff. Pixar.s summer release in 2016 will take audiences back into the water with everyone.s favorite forgetful fish. Finding Dory will reach theaters 12 years (!!) after 2003.s Finding Nemo introduced us to a nervous clown fish, his suffocated son, and the amnesic blue tang fish that helped them on their rescue mission. But what has changed between now and then? A lot, both on the screen, and off. Let.s dive in to Pixar.s latest sequel with our What We Know So Far guide to Pixar.s Finding Dory.

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Mattel Embarks On ‘Thomas & Friends’ Video Content Initiative

23 February 2015 3:25 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Mattel is joining the crowd of brands looking to get into children’s programming. The toy manufacturer’s preschool content division, Hit Entertainment, is developing a slate of original Thomas & Friends videos based on the popular brand Thomas the Tank Engine.

Hit Entertainment plans to bring 52, short-form new videos to the Thomas & Friends YouTube channel over the coming year. The “Thomas Around the World” shorts will feature Thomas the Tank leaving his home, the Island of Sodor, to visit new locations. The “Live Action Playroom Shorts” will bring Thomas to life in kids’ playrooms (much like Toy Story), and “Mr. Perkins’ Story Time” will have the titular engine driver reading Railway Series stories. Hit Entertainment will also re-release classic Thomas the Tank Engine songs with new CGI animation, as well as some comedy shorts.

“Exploration and experimentation are at the heart of our playful new Thomas & Friends content,” said Christopher Keenan, »

Top 12 really creepy ballet moments in film and TV

23 February 2015 9:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ballet adds a surreal, creepy quality to many films and tv shows. Here are 12 of the most unsettling...

Warning - This article contains spoilers for The Cabin In The Woods, The Twilight Zone, Black Swan and The Red Shoes.

Ballet is not natural. Dancers perform exhausting routines with legs and feet turned out to bizarre angles, arms held just to the point where they really start to hurt (that’s when you know you’re doing it right), backs bending to angles of 90° and more, limbs held stock still while balancing on their toes, in bodies mathematically maintained in a state that contains absolutely not an ounce of fat but can sustain two or three hours of jumping and running around.

And then the female dancers add to all this by putting their entire weight on the points of their toes, feet bruising and bleeding, nails cracking, and the male »

Will 'Dia de Los Muertos' Be Pixar's First Musical?

16 February 2015 12:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While a lot of Pixar movies have a musical element to them, the famed animation studio has never made a full-on musical. It looks like that may be changing, though, as Oscar-winning singer/songwriter Randy Newman, who has composed 6 previous Pixar movie soundtracks along with the iconic Toy Story theme song 'You've Got a Friend in Me', has revealed that director Lee Unkrich's next project for the studio will be a musical. And it seems that project is the Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Movie.

The Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Project was announced way back in 2012, and was described as a 'wholly original' film for Pixar that would delve into the holiday of it's title. Since that time, we haven't heard too much about the storyline. Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Project does not have a proper title at this time, nor does it have a release date. »

Toy Story 3 Director Is Making Pixar’s First Musical

16 February 2015 10:19 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Pixar

Randy Newman was on Classic FM this weekend and there’s no way on Earth I would ever have known this if Film Divider hadn’t listened in and transcribed some of what he said. I’m always far too busy not being scared of Radio 3 to ever give Classic FM the time of day.

From what he said, it doesn’t seem entirely like Newman is on the best terms with Pixar. A terrible shame because their working relationship had been yielding some amazing results.

“I’m not so sure I don’t have a reputation for being a little trouble,” Newman said, adding “Lee Unkrich isn’t going to use me, I don’t think.”

Use him for what? For the studio’s first musical. That’s what Newman says in any case, though he gives no details.

‘Dragon 2′ Reaps Benefits of DreamWorks Animation’s Techie Innovation

12 February 2015 12:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Already a Golden Globe winner, the Oscar-nominated “How to Train Your Dragon 2” displays a level of sophistication beyond anything DreamWorks Animation has achieved before.

To propel this saga that revolves around a boy and his fire-breathing companion, hundreds of computer animation artists used software that DreamWorks Animation built and employed for the first time. This system, called Apollo, integrates a range of processes — from modeling and animation to lighting and visual effects.

“We wanted to eliminate complexity from artists’ lives,” says Dwa chief technologist Lincoln Wallen. “In the past, a lot of their time was spent managing data and rifling through files. Now it’s more like using your smartphone. You don’t need to know where the data is; you just open an app and manipulate it.”

DreamWorks Animation engineers spent five years developing this approach, and they collaborated with animators to make the tools artist-friendly.

Among them was Fred Nilsson, »

John Ostrander: Music To Write Comics By

8 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I love movie and television soundtracks. I’ll often use a given soundtrack while I work, letting it fuel my writing. I can’t listen to music with lyrics in them; that interferes with my process. I’ll get themes, characters, even scenes or whole plots from the music. Soundtrack music is in service of the story that the film is trying to tell; it’s a part of the narrative, heightening the emotion that’s being invoked.

I have my own particular favorites. The composers usually have a large body of work but certain key works resonate within me – Jerry Goldsmith’s Chinatown and Patton, James Horner with Field of Dreams, Shaun Davey’s Waking Ned Devine, Elmer Bernstein’s To Kill A Mockingbird (has there ever been a more beautiful and evocative theme?) and, of course, The Magnificent Seven.

I’ve also been very fond of Alan Silvestri »

Tomorrowland and Beyond: A Short History of Disney Attractions as Movies

5 February 2015 5:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's tough to stand out among the other Super Bowl commercials, but the 30-second trailer for Disney's Tomorrowland turned a few heads - and probably brought back memories of Space Mountain. Yes, it's a movie inspired by Disneyland's futuristic-themed sector, and it's not the first time Disney transformed a ride into a feature film. Considering that some of the theme park's attractions have been beloved to Disney fans for years, it's surprising it took 60 years for Tomorrowland to spawn a movie. (California's Disneyland turns 60 this year, with plenty of celebrations foot.) To mark the World of Tomorrow's transition to the screen, »

‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Wall-e’ coming to life in Lego form later this year

4 February 2015 10:04 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It may seem cliche, but everything is truly awesome now with LEGOs. After a hit movie last year, it seems like the company is now digging into pop culture more with Back to the Future and Ghostbusters sets out, but now it will go into the Pixar label as well as one of the most popular television shows of all-time to create their newest sets for fans.

Lego announced on Wednesday that later this year, it would be debuting sets based on Doctor Who and Wall-e. The company had been taking ideas for some time now on possible TV shows and movies that people would like to see in Lego form and it seems like both the BBC sci-fi show and Pixar film will be making the transition.

Joss Whedon On Life After Avengers: Age Of Ultron: “I Need To Do Something That I Create Myself”

3 February 2015 9:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For legions of TV and film fans, Joss Whedon is in a class of his own. Not only is he responsible for the legendary series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, he also wrote Toy Story, The Cabin In The Woods and delivered one of the best screen versions of Much Ado About Nothing ever made, during his 2012 summer vacation. But, it was his work for Marvel that cemented his status as creative icon, with writing and directing Marvel’s The Avengers – a box office blockbusting juggernaut that brought together the studio’s greatest heroes in live action for the first time – closely followed by the TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now that the second Avengers instalment – Avengers: Age Of Ultron – is almost upon us, the world awaits the news of where Whedon will now wander.

It is not just Whedon’s body of work that has gained him a devoted fan following, »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

10. Waterworld

Directed by: Kevin Reynolds

It could be the flop of all flops. At the time, “Waterworld” was the most expensive film ever made. Starring Kevin Costner, “Waterworld” is a science-fiction/fantasy film taking place roughly 500 years after the polar ice caps melted in the beginning of the 21st century, effectively covering the entire world with water. Dirt has become a commodity and an unknown traveler named “the Mariner” (Costner) is trying to find anywhere to trade his stash. The catch: he’s a mutant, with gills, allowing him to breathe underwater. He is joined by a woman named Helen (Jeannie Tripplehorn) and child named Enola (Tina Majorino) with an elaborate map tattooed on her back. They sail the world and encounter various groups of survivors. They are pursued by a group of evil forces, led by an eye-patched man called “the Deacon” (Dennis Hopper). The special effects are actually pretty impressive, »
