The House of Magic Review

21 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Within the past few years a variety of hard-hitting, somewhat bleak dramas have hailed out of Belgium. From Our Children, to The Kid with a Bike, to the recently Academy Award nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown – it’s a nation currently going through something of a bright patch. However, sadly that doesn’t seem to extend to films made for a younger crowd, as filmmakers Jeremy Degruson and Ben Stassen present the underwhelming, albeit enchanting, children’s animation The House of Magic.

Murray Blue voices Thunder, an abandoned kitten who seeks shelter at the home of veteran magician Lawrence (Doug Stone), much to the displeasure of his other pets Maggie the Mouse (Shanelle Gray) and Jack the Rabbit (George Babbit), who are jealous of the affection shown towards him. Finally feeling settled and at home in this fantastical, outlandish new environment, living amongst a host of magical creations, it could be a short-lived stay, »

New Poster For Disney Pixar Short Lava; Inside Out Gets Official Synopsis

19 June 2014 10:22 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Pixar Animation Studios has a lot in store for movie goers and animation enthusiasts during the summer of 2015. The studio has released the official title treatment and synopsis for the upcoming animated feature Inside Out as well as the first poster for the new animated short film Lava.

Disney/Pixar gave La journalists an early sneak preview tonight and by all accounts, the footage shown was stunning.

Inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes, Lava is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years.

From director James Ford Murphy and producer Andrea Warren, Lava opens in theaters in front of Inside Out.

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places.

The movie directors who could use a good boss

19 June 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

They're talented, individual, but could, possibly, do with a bit of editorial guidance. Could these directors use a boss, we wonder?

Odd List

In truth, we're a bit frightened about this one. Several times in pub/coffee shop/cider drinking in the park conversations, we've chatted about film directors who perhaps have got too powerful, that they seem to be able to get their own way without having someone to call bullshit on them - be it a good boss, or a very good friend that they trust and listen to.

This can be a very good thing. After all, we want film directors to be free to tell their stories. We don't want studio suits calling the shots. And some directors use their independence wondefully well, without losing what bought it to them in the first place (so, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis and such like).

How To Train Your Dragon 2 – The Review

12 June 2014 6:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

DreamWorks Animation has made us wait four years for the sequel to their most beloved toon How To Train Your Dragon (Despicable Me, Rio and both of their sequels were released between the two Dragon films). They clearly wanted to get it right and they did. How To Train Your Dragon 2 does not disappoint. It’s darker and more ambitious than the original, perhaps less well structured, but combines gorgeous visuals with surprisingly deep emotions. It’s the best animated film I’ve seen this year.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 soars from the start with an opening dragon-racing competition, a sport that plays like Quidditch with sheep. Reintroduced are the main characters: our hero Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), now in a serious relationship with Astrid (America Ferrera), his wacky comrades Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), Snotlout (Jonah Hill), and twins Tuffnut and Ruffnut (T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig). Everything is idyllic in the village of Burk, »

Angus MacLane Co-Directing Finding Dory With Andrew Stanton

11 June 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Cars 2 fizzled and Monsters University didn’t really offer much to Monsters Inc. fans, Pixar has proven with Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 that it understands how to make great sequels. So we’re holding out hope for Finding Dory, a sequel to Oscar winner Finding Nemo, especially because the first film’s director Andrew Stanton is back on board. Unfortunately, we won’t get to see it until 2016 because of The Good Dinosaur getting delayed and moved to Dory‘s spot, but at least we’ve got some interesting news about the film to tide us over.

While tweeting about an amusing Lego creation, Stanton let slip that Pixar veteran Angus MacLane is co-directing Finding Dory with him:

From my co-director’s clever Lego “couch” series: “@AngusMacLane: Tony Stark having a drink on a couch, in Lego. http://t.co/uw6oyALe36”

15 Laziest Movie Sequels Of All Time

9 June 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

tumblr

Unless your name is James Cameron, sequels seem to have been the easiest way to generate big box office for the last couple of decades. With brand recognition and franchise appeal becoming increasingly important to the studios in regards to their big-budget output, high-profile sequels now tend to have release dates before the first movie even hits theaters.

Based on this blockbuster template of turning every successful movie into a franchise, it should come as no surprise that 37 of the 50 highest-grossing movies in history are sequels of some sort. Unsurprisingly for something that is designed to generate maximum profits, sequels have a reputation for being commercial exercises over creative ones. For every great sequel like The Godfather Part II, Dark Knight or Toy Story 2, there are plenty of terrible ones such as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Men in Black II or Blair Witch: Book of Shadows.

With that in mind, »

Channing Tatum And Steve Carell Hash It Out In First Clip From Foxcatcher

16 May 2014 8:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first clip from true story crime biopic, Foxcatcher, has arrived online – quite a while after the teaser trailer debuted.

When the release date of a much-anticipated film is pushed back (ahem, we’re looking at you Batman vs. Superman) a number of reasons are often cited as to why. More space is required for creativity to flourish, a conflicting schedule, a large wodge of the finished product has been lost (ahem, Toy Story 2.) For director Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) though, it was all down to the editing process.

Sony Pictures Classics announced a while back that the flick’s original fall 2013 release was to be delayed roughly 12 months, immediately after dropping the first trailer. Scheduled to premiere in competition at Cannes next week, Foxcatcher is now on the slate for a wide North American release later this year.

Turns out Miller’s unique approach to the cut job was responsible, »

Review: David Newman Conducts The New York Philharmonic's Tribute To The Pixar Films

2 May 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

There are precious few things in life that reach the status of absolute perfection. Off-hand I can think of three:

1. A top notch Cuban cigar.

2. A wee-small hours meal in a New Jersey White Castle.

3. Any performance by the New York Philharmonic.

Last night, I had the opportunity to cover the latter for Cinema Retro, as the Philharmonic, under the direction of the esteemed conductor David Newman, presented a magnificent tribute to the music of the Pixar animated film classics. The event took place at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City and was the latest production in the legendary orchestra's tie-ins to major motion pictures. Last year, I reported on the Philharmonic's similar celebration of the films of Alfred Hitchcock. (Click here for coverage)  However, the Pixar event was even more impressive. My one gripe with the Hitchcock event was that the film »

24 April 2014 1:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A Barbie live-action comedy movie is in the works with Sony Pictures and Mattel.

The project will be produced by Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald with Jenny Bicks (Sex and the City, The Big C) writing the script.

Sony's production president Hannah Minghella said: "We've always thought that the Barbie story had great potential, but a universe of possibilities opened up when Jenny, Walter and Laurie brought us their unexpected, clever, and truly funny concept.

"It captures everything that has made Barbie a classic for generation after generation while also standing on its own, establishing Barbie as a truly original screen character."

The Barbie movie marks the second collaboration between Sony and Mattel, who are working on a Masters of the Universe project together.

According to Deadline, the Barbie storyline will see the character utilise "her personal and professional skills to step into the lives of others and improve them, »

Artax, Silver, Joey, Shadowfax: 11 greatest movie and TV horses

16 April 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We were saddened by the news that Gandalf's faithful grey horse Shadowfax - real name Blanco - had died after suffering from an illness last week.

So we thought we'd take the opportunity to stop mourning and instead celebrate Shadowfax and ten other great fictional horses on TV and the silver screen below:

1. Silver

"Hi-Yo Silver! Away!" were the trademark commands of the Lone Ranger to Silver, the magnificent fictional white stallion from the iconic Us radio show and TV series.

A chestnut mare called Dusty was Silver's original predecessor, which is revealed in the 1938 episode The Legend of Silver. When the Lone Ranger saves Silver's life from a savage buffalo, Silver gives up living in the wild, wild west to instead carry the masked former Texas Ranger as his loyal equestrian companion.

2. Seabiscuit

"Let's go, Pops!" Seabiscuit was a real racehorse during the Great Depression in the Us who »

Pixar Featurette Highlights Some Of The Studio's Best Easter Eggs

15 April 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to the recent release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we've spent the last few weeks talking about how good Marvel Studios is as sprinkling little Easter Eggs into their films. But let's not forget: Pixar has been doing similar brilliant work in the same regard for the last 19 years - a.k.a. since they began making feature films. Die hard fans of the studio's animated movies have spent years studying their favorite titles and analyzing them frame by frame, but now Pixar has released an official video highlighting a few of the best ones. Hosted by Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3 and the co-director of Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc. and Toy Story 2, the video puts the spotlight on some of the most clever little bonuses featured in Pixar movies. Not only does the Luxo Jr. ball appear in nearly every one of the studio's films, »

Was 1999 the best ever year for movies? The Matrix, Fight Club, more

5 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Wachowskis' ground-breaking blockbuster The Matrix celebrated its 15th anniversary recently, and for this landmark we couldn't help but cast our mind back to the year of its release 1999.

Call it pre-Millennium anxiety or the finality of a clock ticking over from 99 to 00, but there was something in Hollywood's creative waters that year. American Beauty took home the Best Picture Academy Award the following year, but beyond that there were a slew of incredible films that hit theatres in 1999.

And not just in one particular genre: we saw great works in the blockbuster arena (the aforementioned Matrix), horror (The Sixth Sense), comedy (American Pie) and animation (Toy Story 2). This was a time when great directors - David Fincher, Alexander Payne, Paul Thomas Anderson, Spike Jonze, David O Russell - were all hitting their stride and producing incredible work.

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Toy Story 3'

2 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Pixar must have known what it was doing when it scheduled Toy Story 3 for Fathers’ Day weekend 2010, over a decade after the release of Toy Story 2. For as much as kids were eager to catch up with Woody and Buzz, it was the fathers who inevitably stayed in their seats during the film’s closing credits, trying to compose themselves before their children noticed dad’s cheeks were wet. Adult conversations about the film that summer often began with, “Sooo… Did you cry?” or rather, “How hard did you cry?”

Frozen Is Now The Highest Grossing Animated Film Ever Made

31 March 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's official! After weeks of smashing one record after another, Disney's Frozen has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time! The musical about two sisters/princesses took the crown from Toy Story 3, bypassing its worldwide total of $1.06 billion with $1.07 billion. And that number will continue to rise as Frozen is still in theaters around the world in 2D, 3D, and Sing Along variants. Frozen broke its first record on its opening weekend, when it became the #1 all-time Thanksgiving debut with $67.4 million over the three-day weekend, but $93.6 mil over the five-day. That title was previously held by Toy Story 2, which boasted $57 million on its Thanksgiving release. Tackling two Toy Story titles is all the more impressive when you consider that it toppled two franchise movies with widely established and beloved characters. Yes, Frozen is very loosely based on "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen, but it's doubtful »

12 3D Film Re-Releases That Must Happen

25 March 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Films are made for the big screen. They demand an immersive environment where the viewer’s whole attention rests on the images in front of them (unless you’re one of those people who live-tweets every film. In which case, just, don’t.) and the loud surround sound. That’s the main difference between a film and a good TV drama such as Sherlock – films are best seen in the cinema. So the film industry is constantly searching for ways to better this experience – higher resolution 4K screens, better laser projectors, 360° sound, etc – and the latest, biggest advancement has been 3D.

Whether you’re a fan of 3D or not, there’s no denying that it has taken off massively: brought into popularity by big releases such as Up and Avatar in 2009, it is now the standard for big-budget action or sci-fi films, and pretty much all animation. »
