Two-Legged Dog Instagram Star Beats the Odds and Survives Dramatic Car Accident During Family Vacation

9 August 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A two-legged dog beloved by thousands on Instagram and YouTube for his determination and happy spirit, has beaten the odds again — this time while on a Yellowstone National Park vacation with his adoptive family.

Duncan Lou Who (named after Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas), a four-year-old boxer, was born with his rear legs fused together and a severely deformed pelvis, but he hasn’t let these differences slow him down. 

His owners, Amanda Giese and Gary Walters, founders of Panda Paws Rescue, a pet adoption service in Vancouver, Washington, had just started their vacation in Yellowstone on the evening of Aug. »

Ron Howard has cast his younger brother, Clint Howard, in an unspecified role in the upcoming “Star Wars” Han Solo spinoff.

The director disclosed the casting on Twitter in response to a straightforward request from a fan: “Please tell me you have a role for Clint.” “You won’t be disappointed,” the filmmaker responded on Wednesday.

John Ostrander: Hokey Smokes!

30 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

On Friday I learned that one of my childhood heroes died. June Foray passed on at the age of 99.

Ms. Foray was a voice actress working in animated features all her long career, as well as in comedy shorts and appearances on Johnny Carson and with Stan Freberg, Daws Butler, and Frank Nelson. She was the voice of Grandmother in Mulan, of Betty Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas and, most important to me, she was the voice of Natasha Fatale and Rocky the Flying Squirrel on the various Rocky and Bullwinkle shows created by the legendary Jay Ward.

Rocky and Bullwinkle had a huge impact on me as a kid. All of Jay Ward’s stuff had a combination of sophisticated and low-brow humor. There were elements of satire combined with a lot of really bad puns.

Originally, the dimwitted Bullwinkle was the sidekick to the plucky hero Rocket J. »

The Top 25 Box Office Blockbusters of the 21st Century

13 July 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No subjective “best” list here, this one is based on stats. As the 21st century turns 16, we’ve got the 25 biggest-grossing domestic blockbusters to date.

Check the stunning list below, which is unlike any previous period in movie business history. (We’re using adjusted totals to account for changing ticket prices. Box Office Mojo’s top 200 all-time adjusted list is here.) Here’s what we learned by doing the numbers:

The 21st Century Has Delivered Many of the Biggest Hits in History

25 of the 100 all-time biggest-grossing films have come from the first 16 years of this century. 1984 to 2000, the era that perfected the modern blockbuster and mass release of movies, brought 17. So the 21st century has been an era of major hits.

But oddly, the first current-century films on the all-time-grossers list places #11: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” And “Avatar” is #14. (This is where adjusting becomes essential — unadjusted, the ten »

5 Directors Who Could Replace Lord & Miller On The Han Solo Movie

21 June 2017 2:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Han Solo movie director? Who could replace the departed Lord & Miller? We throw some options into the ring.

We reported very early this morning that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had sadly left the in-production Star Wars spin-off movie based around the character of Han Solo. It’s a great shame as the work that the duo have done on the likes of The Lego Movie and the ‘Jump Street’ films seemed to fit the world of Han Solo perfectly. Our Han Solo movie director choices are below.

Lord & Miller’s leaving of the project as it was shooting here in London was a surprise, and supposedly due to those dastardly creative differences that dog many productions as creatives and execs butt heads. While this is clearly nobody’s fault in particular, it’s a big problem for the studio as production delays lead to big costs, and a new director will need to be found pretty darned quickly.

The film is actually months into production in London, and we’re already hearing rumblings that Ron Howard is being closely tied with the project. While his involvement could be confirmed (or denied) any minute, we thought we’d take a look at who could possibly replace Lord and Miller on the Han Solo movie and fit the mould that this particular kind of film craves.

Ron Howard Han Solo movie director: Ron Howard?

Let’s kick off with the name that is already being associated with the movie. Ron Howard seems like a very safe choice to take the directing reigns on the project, and he’s obviously an accomplished filmmaker more than capable of guiding a film that is part-way through production home. Howard has many big-scale projects in his back catalogue; from the likes of the Robert Langdon trilogy; The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and last year’s Inferno, 2015’s In The Heart Of The Sea and How The Grinch Stole Christmas, to more intimate affairs such as A Beautiful Mind. Let’s not forget, he has a huge history of comedic movies too, hailing all the way back to Parenthood in the 1990s, Matthew McConaughey-led EdTV, and more recently The Dilemma.

Of course, Howard’s biggest asset from his back-catalogue is his ties with George Lucas with the fantastical cult hit Willow. With his affiliation and previous history with the studio, the fact that he is currently free (despite having some commitments to a biopic on opera star Luciano Pavarotti) and his amazing film-making skill, his involvement is a dead cert – as long as the terms are right, of course.

Lawrence Kasdan Han Solo movie director: Lawrence Kasdan?

With the project many months into production and development having kicked off well over twelve months ago, it may be important to bring someone in who knows the film inside out, and there’s nobody who knows it more that its screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. Kasdan also wrote Star Wars movies The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, The Force Awakens, so his familiarity with the franchise is unparalleled. With eleven credits to his name as director, Kasdan is also an accomplished filmmaker with a steep history in the western genre over the years, so he could be a good fit.

Kasdan has already proved he can direct grand scale movies (Wyatt Earp) as well as comedies (The Big Chill), and although he hasn’t helmed a film since 2012, he could step out of the gates and own this one completely.

Denis Villeneuve, Sofia Coppola & More Pick Their Favorite Films of the 21st Century So Far

9 June 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’re now nearly 17 years into the 21st century, and the cinematic landscape has changed drastically since the year 2000. The highest grossing movie of that year was How the Grinch Stole Christmas, followed by Cast Away—a lengthy drama starring Tom Hanks with minimal dialogue. Indeed, in the entire box office Top 10 of 2000 there’s only one superhero movie and one sequel—the rest are dramas, comedies, and original stories. Contrast that with 2016 where only three of the Top 10 were original stories, four were superhero movies, and the highest grossing film of the year … »

Get Your First Look At Benedict Cumberbatch’s Grinch From Universal’s Adaptation

26 May 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Everyone loves the Grinch, right? Dr. Seuss’ 1957 children’s book How the Grinch Stole Christmas, famously adapted into a 1966 animated film, is a stone cold holiday classic. Even the 2000 live-action adaptation starring Jim Carrey as the green grouch has aged surprisingly well, and is a strikingly strange and ambitious Christmas movie. But, we’ve had 17 Grinchless years since, so Universal has decided to remedy that with The Grinch.

Apart from the title character being voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, we don’t really know too much about what the studio has in store for us here. What little we can tell you, however, comes courtesy of Illumination Entertainment CEO Chris Meledandri, who spoke to Deadline in April 2016, when he laid out how they’re differentiating themselves from previous adaptations:

“I think that the essence of this film is the notion of this cynicism comedically expressed in the Grinch and this absolute innocence represented in Cindy Lou, »

The Grinch: first pic from new CG reboot

23 May 2017 9:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brendon Connelly May 24, 2017

Benedict Cumberbatch is voicing The Grinch. And here's what he'll look like...

Illumination - the folks behind the Despicable Me films, of course - have been showing off some of their key characters to licensors over the past week, the better to encourage the continued manufacture, distribution, sale, enjoyment and, eventually, landfill-clogging destruction of their merchandise. And in a new piece of artwork - that you can see at the top there, and in full down at the bottom - that's been placed as an advert in Global License, we get our first look at the studio's CG take on The Grinch, from next year's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas do-over.

Following Boris Karloff, sort-of-Tim Curry, Jim Carrey and Seth Green, the latest actor to play (well, voice in this instance) Dr. Seuss' immortal, Christmas-derailing hermit, will be Benedict Cumberbatch. Seems only natural. Shame that »

First Look at Benedict Cumberbatch's The Grinch

18 May 2017 4:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been over a year since Benedict Cumberbatch was confirmed to be voicing the title role in Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a feature length animated reboot of the classic holiday tale. Today, we get a first look at the grumpy green Grinch intent on taking over Christmas. And word that the title has been greatly reduced to just two short words, better for fitting on a marquee.

Now simply called The Grinch, this first look at the CG-animated family holiday comedy comes courtesy of License Global magazine via Coming Soon. The movie will be directed by Peter Candeland and Yarrow Cheney and now has a release date of November 9, 2018. The tag line simply reads as such.

"Stealing Christmas 2018."

Jim Carrey starred in the original live-action movie adaptation of The Grinch way back in 2000, with the new take coming 18 years after the comedian nearly walked off the set »

Indominus Rex Returns in Jurassic World 2 Promo Art

18 May 2017 1:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Is indominus Rex ready to make her triumphant return in Jurassic World 2? That's what a new piece of promo art hints, showing the hybrid dinosaur's shimmering eye as it sizes up its prey. We can also see in the reflection that she's still on the island. And if you look close, it almost looks like she's about to shed a tear. Guess she didn't get the memo that there is no crying at Jurassic World.

This image comes from the latest issue of License Global magazine, which Coming Soon got ahold of. The booklet is full of art from other Universal and Sony movies including The Grinch, Jumanji 2, Peter Rabbit and the horror movie Slenderman. But it's this piece of Jurassic art that has really captured our imaginations.

This is the first real hint that Indominus Rex is coming back. Previously, producer and co-writer Colin Trevorrow confirmed that the »
