Travolta Philosophical About New Film's Prospects

2 November 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood actor John Travolta is cautious about his new movie Domestic Disturbance - because he's not confident on how well it will do at the box office. The star's $60 million film is set to be released in America this weekend, but he admits he's worried about how well it will be received by the public. He says, "It looks like a hit, it smells and feels like it, the surveys are encouraging - but you never know until you're out there. Especially in today's marketplace." With Disney/Pixar's much anticipated Monsters Inc. opening this weekend, plus Sony's media blitz for The One, Paramount publicists admit it's been an uphill battle to get exposure for the film. »

Monsters Inc. Is A Family Affair

1 November 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

There may be an impressive cast of Hollywood actors voicing characters in Disney and Pixar's upcoming Monsters Inc., but two of the voices weren't found via Hollywood auditions. They were found in Pixar's offices. Says Bob Peterson, a Pixar story supervisor on the film who ended up voicing the slug-like Roz, "at first, I was just doing her voice as a scratch track... they did recordings with some real actresses but Pete [Docter] and the others just weren.t laughing as much." Also coming from the Pixar family is Mary Gibbs, who voices the human girl Boo. The daughter of Pixar story artist Rob Gibbs, a two-and-a-half year old Mary's screams and giggles were recorded for a scratch track. A year later, when the character was set and the real recording sessions began, Gibbs was given the role. It was mainly play for the bubbly blonde tot, who didn't quite grasp the impact of what she was doing at the time. Says her father, "Now that she.s five and has seen promos and trailers for the film, it.s just starting to sink in that she.s in a movie." She's apparently proud of it, her dad adds, saying, "my wife recently overheard her telling her friends in pre-school, .I.m in a movie.." (This story was compiled by IMDb staff) »

Goodman Breaks Ground In Monsters

19 October 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

American funnyman John Goodman broke animation protocol for Disney's animated movie Monsters Inc. Goodman's co-star Billy Crystal recorded his part in the same room Goodman. He says, "I did the first session alone... and I said, 'You know, this is terrible.'" He adds that director Pete Docter, "kept wanting all different line readings of the same line." '"Why am I doing all of these', I asked. He said, 'Well, in case I change the scene around, and I'll get John to do it.' I said, 'Isn't that just silly? When we can be together and do it together and play the scenes?' And that's what we did." Typically, actors who do voices for animation record their parts individually and never meet their co-stars. »
