Brad Bird‘s first feature The Iron Giant didn’t make a big splash upon its release in 1999. Warner Bros. didn’t seem to know how to market the film, and with the internet publicity machine only in its first formative stage, some of the tools that can help raise awareness of a film in 2015 were not […]

This new trailer doesn't feature too much new footage, but it is a very nice edit that makes this look like so much more than just a cartoon. A great trailer for a wonderful movie.

While the Toronto International Film Festival looks around the world and in all genres to find features for its annual incarnation, one area that receives focus is films aimed at children. With the understanding both that quality cinema is not dependent on its target audience, and that cinephiles can begin at any age, the festival’s Kids Programme highlights such features.
The Discovery Programme, on the other hand, brings together films from first and second time directors, with an eye on emerging talent. The festival has now announced the lineups for both Programmes in the 2015 incarnation of the event, along with further additions to the Cinematheque and Vanguard lineup. The Discovery lineup joins previously announced Canadian features. The films, with their official synopses, can be seen below.

Robots have been a staple on the big screen for many decades, showing up as far back as Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic Metropolis and as recently as Alex Garland’s 2015 film Ex Machina. With numerous depictions of robots have come numerous ideas of what they look like, what they’re capable of, whether they’re good or evil, and other such concerns.
Now vimeo user Mennomail has made a mashup of the various robotic representations on the big screen over the years. The video is set to both Fractals by Monea Music and Ich Will by Rammstein, and highlights both the similarities and differences in how robots have been depicted by various filmmakers. Mennomail also released a list of films from which scenes appear, which is as follows:

Scooby Doo and chums are heading back to cinemas in 2018 - in fully animated form this time...
The pair of Scooby Doo movies that Warner Bros released in 2002 and 2004 don't really have an abundance of fans. That said, we've always felt that Matthew Lillard made a mighty fine Shaggy. Still, the mix of CG and live action didn't quite gel, and following the release of Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, the film series was quietly retired.
Warner Bros, however, is now set to bring Scooby Doo back to the big screen, but this time in a new fully animated adventure. The new film has been written by Matt Liberman, and Tony Cervone is set to direct, having worked on Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
This follows news earlier in the year that Warner Bros is bringing a new animated The Jetsons movie to the big screen as well.

Fire up the Mystery Machine! Scooby-Doo and his crime-busting pals will soon embark on a brand new comedy adventure, as Warner Bros. Pictures prepares to bring the beloved Hanna-Barbera franchise back to theaters on September 21, 2018. The announcement was made jointly today by Greg Silverman, President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of Worldwide Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
The Scooby-Doo film reunites Oscar-nominated producers Charles Roven and Richard Suckle (American Hustle), who previously produced the Studio's hugely successful live-action features Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Joining them is BAFTA Award-winning producer Allison Abbate (The Iron Giant), who produced the Oscar-nominated features The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride and Frankenweenie.
It was 11 years ago that Warner Bros. last tried to deliver a successful Scooby-Doo movie into cinemas – and they would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for all that pesky live-action business. For we all know that the Scooby Gang works best in animation – and it would seem that the studio behind the legendary cartoon has come to accept this, too. Warner Bros. has now confirmed that an animated Scooby-Doo film will arrive in theatres in 2018.
Scooby-Doo was created in 1969 by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, and was conceived as a Saturday morning cartoon about four teenage friends and their titular talking Great Dane. The group works together to solve mysteries that appear, on the surface, to involve elements of the supernatural. The show has continued in various guises, on and off, for thirty six years, and has enjoyed enduring fandom and popularity across generations of children and adults. »

Renowned animation icon Dan Povenmire ("Phineas and Ferb") will serve as executive producer, and "Scooby-Doo" live-action film producers Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce the new film as will Allison Abbate ("The Iron Giant").
In a statement, Warners exec Greg Silverman says: "Like countless fans, I have always loved the Hanna-Barbera cast of characters. As one of their most famous brand ambassadors, Scooby-Doo will take the lead in re-introducing this pantheon of enduringly popular animated stars on a grand scale with an exciting new movie."

We don't want to get involved in the whole 'Poor Jen' narrative - painting her like some kind of modern day Ophelia - but it's true that the recently married actress has struggled to replicate her success outside of Friends (not that's she's alone there).
But among the laboured romantic 'comedies' and dramas rank with the stench of pathos, Aniston has actually appeared in a few cinematic gems. We've searched out these tranquil islands in the sea of Metacritic reds and yellows:
A cult comedy with a dark edge but soft heart, Mike 'Beavis & Butt-head' Judge's Office Space was a flop on release in 1999 but has rightly become a cult classic in the years since. Peter, Samir and Michael are three programmers stuck in an office job from hell, which only gets more hellish with the arrival of a pair of consultants looking to "downsize".

“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 ]
