‘Henry & Me’ Director on Yankee Cameos, Cutting Alex Rodriguez

20 December 2014 5:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Among the 20 animated films that have qualified to be considered for an Academy Award nomination is the little film “Henry & Me.” It’s a heartwarming story about a young Yankee fan battling a serious illness with the help of a magical friend and it’s hoping to make it to the big leagues against some pretty heavy hitters.

The film has scored a voice acting Annie Award nomination for Cyndi Lauper, who has a small, but key role as a nurse. The animated pic boasts a treasure trove of Yankees legends, bringing back to life such greats as Babe Ruth, Lefty Gomez, Mickey Mantle, Thurman Munson and Yankee owner George Steinbrenner, as well as living legends like Yogi Berra (still malapropping strong at 89) and Reggie Jackson, along with current members of the team. And the cast included such stars as Richard Gere, Cyndi Lauper, Chaz Palminteri, Luis Guzman, Lucie Arnaz and Paul Simon. »

Comic Book Review – Silver Volume 1

14 November 2014 12:57 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg reviews the collection which serves as the opening installment for a comic book series that expands upon the literary universe envisioned by Bram Stoker…. 

When you have a career involving huge robots, flying reptiles, miniature one-eyed henchmen and blue forest creatures, delving into the world of vampires is not that much of a stretch for Stephan Franck who has worked on The Iron Giant (1999), How to Train Your Dragon (2010) and Despicable Me (2010) along with directing The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow (2013).  With the release of Silver Volume 1 by Dark Planet Comics, a publishing/production company he co-founded with his brother and producer/studio executive Emmanuel Franck, the French born animator has collected the first three issues of his horror heist thriller where a conman attempts to steal from the bloodsucking undead.

Each issue is treated as an individual chapter commencing with Finnigan which introduces the protagonist of »

'Big Hero 6' Star Scott Adsit Won't Curse as Baymax, So Don't Ask

7 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A few weeks ago, Scott Adsit, whom you might remember as Liz Lemon's perpetually put-upon coworker Pete in Tina Fey's "30 Rock," was on stage at the New York Comic Con. It was during the Disney panel, when they were hyping up this month's release of the studio's new animated superhero romp "Big Hero 6," and Adsit was beaming. In fact, it seemed like he couldn't believe that he was lucky enough to voice Baymax, a squishy nurse robot who inadvertently becomes a crime-fighting warrior alongside his pint-sized owner Hiro (Ryan Potter). (Baymax was the creation of Hiro's older brother, who died tragically, so there's an additional emotional component to the cuddly robot as well.)

When we sat down and talked with Adsit, at the Disney Animation Studios, he still seemed in awe of the fact that he got to voice this character. At one point we marveled at his new second career as Baymax. »

'Big Hero 6' Review: 10 Things You Should Know About the Animated Epic

6 November 2014 7:12 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After spending years in Pixar's lamp-shaped shadow, Disney Animation Studios blossomed in a big, big way.

With "Frozen," the original animation kingpins came back. (At least publicly, keen-eyed animation enthusiasts had always known how good features like "The Princess & the Frog" and "Winnie the Pooh" were.) What began with "Tangled" and continued with "Wreck-It Ralph" reached a peak with "Frozen," which became the highest-grossing animated film ever. Wowza.

Now that Disney Animation Studios has taken the heavyweight belt, they're ready for their victory lap, in the form of "Big Hero 6," a title taken from a relatively obscure Marvel comic book that concerns a pint-sized genius named Hiro (Ryan Potter) and his friendship with an inflatable nurse robot named Baymax (Scott Adsit). Together with some of Hiro's friends, they create a crime-fighting team to take down an evil madman with mind-controlled robots. (Don't worry, this makes more sense in the context of the movie. »

Tom Cruise cheats death in crazy 'Mission: impossible 5' plane stunt

4 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the 8,000 things my kids are currently obsessed with is the Tom Cruise "Mission: Impossible" franchise. They've seen the franchise completely out of order, because I used "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" to win them over. By far, it's the best of the entire series, and they're already Brad Bird fans because of "The Iron Giant," "The Incredibles," and "Ratatouille," so when I showed it to them, all I had to do was tell them who made it. Actually, that's not true. The other thing I told them was about the stunt that Tom Cruise did, the highly-publicized climb up the outside of Burj Khalifa in Dubai. They're Jackie Chan fans already, and we discussed how Jackie did his own stunts and why that's special. It's something that we've talked about in terms of Buster Keaton as well. I hate to say it, but it's true… there's something special »

Brad Bird on Wanting to Direct Tomorrowland and Star Wars

14 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Back in the days when Disney and Lucasfilm were still looking for a director to take on the task of directing Star Wars: Episode VII, Brad Bird was being considered. He is the guy who brought us such films as The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. He was in the running up until the point he decided to bow out to put all of his efforts into developing the sci-fi adventure film Tomorrowland

MTV caught up with the director at New York Comic Con this last weekend and he talked about why he took himself out of the running for Star Wars: Episode VII saying:

“We were already deeply into ['Tomorrowland']. George [Clooney] had committed to it, and we were down the road a bit. For a moment there, I thought that it would work out to do this and go right into ['Episode VII']. It was supposed to be summer of this coming year. »

Brad Bird Talks Turning Down "Star Wars"

13 October 2014 6:46 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Brad Bird helmed three acclaimed animated movies ("The Iron Giant," "Ratatouille," "The Incredibles") and made the transition to live-action with the excellent "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol".

His next film is the George Clooney-led "Tomorrowland" which opens next May, but at one time there was talk of him being linked to take the helm "Star Wars: Episode VII". Speaking with MTV, Bird said there was a brief possibility at one time but he couldn't do it and make "Tomorrowland" as good as he could make it:

"We were already deeply into this [Tomorrowland] and it was down the road a bit. For a moment there I thought it would work out to do this and go right into it [Star Wars].

What wouldn't work... it [Star Wars] was supposed to be the Summer of that coming year [2015] and there was no way to make that schedule and give this film [Tomorrowland] the attention that it deserved. »

Damon Lindelof Talks Tomorrowland, the Teaser Trailer, What the Film is About, and More at Nycc

12 October 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Brad Bird only makes great movies.  If you're not familiar with his name, he directed The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol.  So when Disney announced Bird would be helming Tomorrowland (which is scripted by Bird, Jeff Jensen and Lost alum Damon Lindelof), you could have told me it was about a man's quest to get a bowl of soup and it would have been one of my most anticipated films of the year.  Thankfully, he decided to tell a different story, and it's a big budget sci-fi movie that stars George Clooney and revolves around “a bright, optimistic teen (Britt Robertson) bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment who embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as ‘Tomorrowland.’” The other day at New York Comic-Con, »

Tomorrowland: first trailer

9 October 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Brad Bird's mysterious sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland finally has a trailer. Take a first look here...

Well, after a lengthy period of secrecy, Brad Bird's Tomorrowland finally has a first trailer. This is the film that, at one time, was thought to be a Buck Rogers reboot - which is clearly wide of the mark, as the promo below proves.

This isn't to say that it gives all that much away. We see Casey (Britt Robertson) whisked away to an Oz-like place (the Tomorrowland of the title), where she meets a scientific genius named Frank (George Clooney). "What they must do there changes the world - and them - forever", reads the equally ambiguous synopsis.

Starry cast notwithstanding, Bird's one reason to be excited about this - the director behind The Iron Giant, The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, he's great at making films full of »

The Iron Giant Poster by Dkng

9 October 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Iron Giant by Brad Bird is a fan boy/girl favorite. Dkng has created a poster for Mondo Tees and in just a couple of hours it has already sold out. Only 260 of these hand numbered screenprinted posters were made. The art is beautiful in sepia tones, with clean lines, and an atmospheric feel. At 18"x24" and only $40, I can see why they sold out so quickly. »

First 'Tomorrowland' Details and Pics Promise the Science Equivalent of Hogwarts

8 October 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

So far Brad Bird has made The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Obviously everyone is automatically going to be interested in whatever movie he does next, no matter what it's about or who is in it. But, so far that movie -- the sci-fi Disney project Tomorrowland -- has been fairly shrouded in mystery. We know it's written by Damon Lindelof (Lost, Prometheus) and Jeff Jensen (a former journalist), stars George Clooney and Britt Robertson, and somehow includes Walt Disney's obsession with the future. Now thanks to a first look piece at Entertainment Weekly, we not only have our first three images from the movie, but a host of fresh details about its plot, and some of them are a bit surprising. The overall story is about a girl...

First Look: George Clooney is a man out of time in Disney's 'Tomorrowland'

8 October 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It never was, but is always near, can never be seen, but will always show up—although it disappears the moment it arrives... The solution to this old riddle is simple: Tomorrow. But for those awaiting a glimpse of Disney's upcoming sci-fi/fantasy adventure Tomorrowland, the answer is not so elusive. Here's an exclusive preview of what's-to-come from the deeply shrouded new Brad Bird film. "We begin our movie asking what did  used to be?" Bird says. "What’s good about the future and what’s scary about it? And we wrestle with those things in a slightly mythical way. »

Watch: David Weinstein's Incredible Sci-Fi Robot Short Film 'Envoy'

24 September 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You don't even know what it's capable of! Or what it's doing." Wow - this is one of the best shorts I've seen in a while - David Weinstein's Envoy, uploaded to his Vimeo recently. Stellar VFX combined with an emotional, compelling story - a kid and his robot, think Transformers with a little The Iron Giant. And I love that it goes all out, never shying away from showing the robot and some awesome action scenes, and it follows through until the very end. Envoy is under 10 minutes and is worth a quick watch, it's refreshing to see something so good for a short film like this. Someone let this guy make a movie, I don't want this to end. "Details" on the short from Vimeo: "Science fiction, action adventure, short film to be used as a proof of concept for a larger full-length feature film story. A »

Big Hero 6 TV Spot - "My Ninja Skills Are Sweet"

16 September 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here's the latest TV spot for Disney's Big Hero 6, and it's called "My Ninja Skills Are Sweet." This movie is going to be incredibly entertaining. To read about some things I learned at an early press event for the film, , click here. This is the most excited that I've been for a Disney animated movie in a long time. One of the reasons is because it falls in line with some of my other favorite animated movies such as The Iron Giant and The Incredibles. 

Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

Video of The Iron Giant Puppet Cosplay in Action

10 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A week ago we shared an awesome photo of a 9 foot Iron Giant cosplay puppet from Cosplay Day Singapore 2014. You can now see the puppet in action! R3LOAD Network released a video of the puppeteer cosplayer working his magic. The Iron Giant you see here was created by Orvis Evans, and took about a year to build. It was made using Pvc pipes, plastic, foam and parts from a toilet. 

What's funny is the guy parading it around can't even see, so he had bring someone along with him to guide him through the crowds. I would love to see this guy build something else just as cool to show off.
