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. »

“How was the first day at school?”
No kid ever wants to be asked this question – and Inside Out’s Riley is no exception. More than likely, that first day of school was full of anxiety, hope, fear, and excitement, but who wants to talk about your feelings when you’re a kid?
Eleven-year-old Riley’s conflicting emotions may be par for the course, but in Inside Out, we’re literally going into Riley’s mind, where all of her feelings have become characters á la Osmosis Jones, and have taken up shop in her brain, “Headquarters.”
Headquarters is led by Joy (Amy Poehler), Riley’s most dominant trait, but after being uprooted from her Midwest home, her other emotions – Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), and Anger (Lewis Black) – are starting to take over.
Check out the first trailer for Inside Out below:

A secret cameo has been revealed in a new clip from the Farrelly brothers' forthcoming Dumb and Dumber To.
"How's it going, Ice Pick?" Harry asks
"The best day ever. It really is the greatest day," the familiar-sounding character in disguise responds.
Watch the clip below and see if you are able to guess the identity of the Oscar-nominated actor (who appears to be channelling Bryan Cranston's Walter White):

The first trailer for Pixar's "Inside Out" has all the feels… because they're the stars of the movie. From Academy Award-winner Pete Doctor (2009's "Up"), "Inside Out" tells the story of a little girl named Riley and the anthropomorphic emotions that live inside her head. When she relocates from the Midwest to San Francisco, it's up to Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Fear (Bill Hader) to keep her keepin' on. Think "Osmosis Jones" of the abstract. To sell the studio's first original concept since 2012's "Brave," Walt Disney Pictures's first trailer reminds everyone to trust in Pixar. We lapped up "Toy Story," "Monsters University," "Wall-e" and "Up," so why not a movie about our bickering emotions? The move comes off a little like fishing for compliments, but c'mon, are we so cynical that we can't appreciate everything Pixar's done for Hollywood cinema? »

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. »

Bill Murray became a movie star 35 years ago this week, upon the release of "Meatballs" on June 29, 1979. His lead role as the head counselor at a sub-par summer camp marked a number of firsts: his first of four movies with director Ivan Reitman (the others were "Stripes" and the two "Ghostbusters"), his first of six movies with writer Harold Ramis (the four Reitman films, plus "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day"), and his first taste of mega-stardom beyond his TV fame on "Saturday Night Live."
Since then, his career has taken on a trajectory unique in the history of film, one in which he's gone from comic goofball to dramatic thespian, from universally beloved to acquired taste, and from manic cynic to soft-spoken spiritual seeker. Through it all, however, there have been a few constants; no matter whether he's a grubby groundskeeper or a morose mogul: Murray's character is always the coolest »
