“The Iron Giant” is possibly one of the most beloved animated classics from the ’90s, and it’s also famous for getting shafted when it came to promotion. The film’s promotional debacle is now legendary for hiding the genius of this film, what with its insistence on highlighting immature jokes and not the mature tone of the film, but thankfully, people were still able to recognize the film as an achievement. Fans of the film will be able to relive the magic of the film when “The Iron Giant: Signature Edition” comes to theaters. The film can finally get its just due in a theatrical format thanks to Warner Bros. and [ Read More ]

Warner Bros is teaming up with Fathom Events for the re-release, which is screening on September 30 and October 4.
The Iron Giant: Signature Edition has been remastered for its return and will include two new scenes.
First released in 1999, Bird's debut feature film stole the hearts of cinema audiences with its tale of the unlikely friendship between a young boy and a giant robot.
More information about venues and tickets is expected to be announced next month.
A high-definition version of the film will also be available for digital purchase later on this year.

Brad Bird’s absolutely wonderful The Iron Giant is a deserved animated classic. Up until now, a Blu-Ray version of the movie has always been talked about, but sadly hasn’t seen the light of day. But now, we’re getting one better, with The Iron Giant: Signature Edition returning to the big screen after sixteen years. Remastered, and containing two all new scenes, the movie is only set for the U.S. at the moment, but hopefully we’ll hear of a release this side of the pond in due course. If this movie has somehow passed you by (really, I can’t see how it has), this is the perfect chance for you to finally experience its particular slice of magic. Following it’s cinematic release, The Iron Giant: Signature edition will be made available to own digital. For more information on this absolutely wonderful turn of events, »

A full HD remaster of The Iron Giant? Two new scenes added? Back in cinemas? Pinch us...
Regular readers of Den Of Geek will know just how happy this particular story makes us. For those oblivious, just watch The Iron Giant. It's under 80 minutes long, and just glorious. There have been few finer family films made since its release in 1999. Here's our full look back at the film.
For some time, there's been talk of finally getting The Iron Giant onto Blu-ray, with director Brad Bird holding out to get the job done properly. In fact, he told us back in 2011 that he was looking to get an extra sequence or two animated to add to the film.
Well, it's nearly Iron Giant Christmas. Warner Bros has confirmed that a remastered version of the film, with two new scenes, is on its way later this year. The release is only »
It is my tradition to kick off Comic-Con by walking the showfloor on preview night and taking photos of anything movie-related that interests me. This year the showfloor is overrun with Star Wars everywhere, for obvious reasons considering we have The Force Awakens coming up. There were also some discoveries like The Iron Giant at WB and plenty of other props or maquettes or models. I made my way through the crowds and snapped as many shots as I could before getting out, but there will certainly be more to come at the end (as I always try to go back). For now, take a look at our 2015 preview night gallery with lots of props. Here's the selection of cool movie stuff I found around this year - check out my showfloor photos from 2014. That's it for now from inside Comic-Con 2015. There's more to be found all over the showfloor, »

Brad Bird could use some positive spin this year following the disappointment of Tomorrowland. And here it is: The Iron Giant, his beloved 1999 animated feature about a boy and his enormous robot friend (voiced by Vin Diesel), is making a return to theaters this fall. Ironically, or perhaps intentionally to drive a point, the 16-year-old movie was also a box office failure. Perhaps this means in 2031 fans of this year's Bird release will get its own welcome resurrection. Good to be working with an old friend.

The film first released back in 1999 and became an instant family classic film. I personally »

Brad Bird didn't exactly make waves with his latest feature, Tomorrowland. Given the man's track record, it seems fair that a dent would finally be made in an otherwise immaculate filmography. Back in 1999, Bird released his first feature-film, The Iron Giant. The animated tale followed an unlikely friendship between a rebellious boy named Hogarth (voiced by Eli Marienthal) and a giant...

He's back! The official announcement just hit in time to kick off Comic-Con 2015. Brad Bird's beloved animated classic The Iron Giant, first released in 1999, will be re-released in theaters on September 30th. The movie is being "remastered and enhanced with two all-new scenes as The Iron Giant: Signature Edition," which will get released on Blu-ray in the fall after it hits theaters.

Earlier this year, we reported that The Iron Giant would likely be returning to theaters, and now Warner Bros. has announced that Brad Bird’s wonderful film will be arriving this fall, albeit in a slightly altered form. The Iron Giant: Signature Edition will be remastered and "enhanced" with two all-new scenes, and released in partnership with Fathom Events on Wednesday, Setepmber 30th at 7pm local time. There will also be an encore event in select markets on Sunday, October 4th at 12:00pm. On the one hand, I’m incredibly excited that I’ll get to see The Iron Giant on the big screen and that we’re finally getting an HD release. However, I also feel like The Iron Giant is a perfect movie and nothing needs to be added. Presumably, the all-new scenes are from deleted footage. For example, I can see “The Giant’s Dream »

Don’t you even dare call it a “kid’s movie.”
Animation has been around for a while now, starting with silent experiments such as Gertie the Dinosaur, followed by the more traditional Disney fare such as Snow White or Cinderella, and becoming more modern with another round of Disney hits like The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast but also with a touch of the outside thanks to Japanese imports like My Neighbor Totoro or Spirited Away.
But time and time again, the medium is relegated to kids duty. Like being sent to the smaller table at Thanksgiving dinner.
Brad Bird, director of The Iron Giant and The Incredibles, said it best when he referred to animation as a medium rather than a genre. Let’s define genre real quickly: “a class or category of artistic endeavor having a particular form.”
So that doesn’t confine animation; instead, »

This week in The Callow Way, Neil Calloway looks at the box office so far in 2015…
Number one at the global box office so far this year is Furious 7, which has made $1.5 billion dollars so far, the vast majority of it outside the Us, and also become the highest grossing film in the franchise so far – out of the seven films, the four most recent films occupy the top four spots in terms of box office, then the first film, then the second, and 2006’s Tokyo Drift coming in last.
It’s impressive that a studio has taken a franchise that had apparently ran out of gas with its third instalment and made it hugely successful, but it also shows that the home video market is playing an increasingly important role in the success of films; people are watching earlier parts of the franchise before catching the latest in the cinema. »

You had only to look at the collected films of Brad Bird to know that Tomorrowland would be in large part a reverie for yesterday. The Iron Giant (1999) was such a friendly evocation of Cold War sci-fi that it belongs, in paperback form, tucked away in the back of a school library. The Incredibles (2004) was a tribute to 60s comics, 60s modernism, and the jazzy vibe of Thunderball-era Bond movies. Ratatouille (2007), with its story of talking rats in a timeless Paris, was a very classical kind of animation. More than anything else Pixar has put out—though Finding Nemo (2003) might come close—its style operates in the vernacular of what Disney animation used to mean in the 50s. Even Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (2011), whose place in Bird's filmography is largely to show if he could handle live action (he can!), is the biggest throwback of that franchise. Its plot centered »

Twenty years ago Pixar Animation Studios released their first feature-length film: Toy Story. It was the first completely computer generated film out there and changed everything. Every other studio making animated films has been trying to catch up to them, not only in terms of technological achievements but in crafting stories that make everyone old and young laugh, cry, and thrilled. Not every single film they've made has been a home run, but their track record thus far has been pretty impressive. This year's release Inside Out is no exception, arriving as the fifteenth feature in the animation house's stable. Given the occasion, I've taken it upon myself to rank Pixar's first fifteen features to settle once and for all what is the best and worst from the studio. I contemplated bringing in the short films that precede each of their features, as many are just exquisite if not better than the films they accompany, »

The Good Dinosaur preview: Disney/ Pixar’s big winter 2015 movie is release in November, and this week, we got a chance to catch some exclusive early footage from the highly anticipated movie. The Good Dinosaur preview
The Good Dinosaur preview: Yesterday (Monday 15th) morning Thn got up extra early to attend a very special preview footage screening of The Good Dinosaur. The film is one of the latest Disney/Pixar collaborations and is being directed by first-time director Peter Sohn.
Sohn took to the stage to talk through his feature debut whilst at the same time giving us a wonderful insight into the inner workings of everyone’s favourite animation house (sorry DreamWorks) Pixar. The talk kicked off with a ‘what it’s like to work at Pixar‘ video which quite frankly had me ready to sign on the dotted line afterwards. Sohn then talked through his career progression from »
