‘Only Yesterday’ English Version With ‘Star Wars’ Actor Daisy Ridley Nabbed by GKids

24 August 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

GKids has acquired North American rights from Studio Ghibli for Isao Takahata’s “Only Yesterday.”

The English-language version is voiced by Daisy Ridley (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”), Dev Patel, Ashley Eckstein (“Star Wars Rebels”) and Alison Fernandez (“Orange Is the New Black”). The movie will be released early next year to coincide with the film’s 25th anniversary.

“With this 25th anniversary release, a broad new audience will now be able to discover what passionate supporters have known for years,” said David Jesteadt of GKids. “‘Only Yesterday’ is a groundbreaking classic and further demonstration of Isao Takahata’s incredible legacy as a filmmaker.”

GKids and Studio Ghibli previously partnered on “When Marnie Was There,” “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya,” “The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness” and “From Up on Poppy Hill.” It also handles North American theatrical distribution for Studio Ghibli’s library of films, including “Spirited Away, »

Choose Wisely – Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

23 August 2015 8:53 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Choose wisely, for while the true Grail will bring you life, the false Grail will take it from you.”

Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade screens Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli as part of the Reel Late at The Tivoli Midnight series. 

In case Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade somehow passed you by in 1989, the film opens with a scene showing a young Indiana Jones (River Phoenix) demonstrating his tenacity when uncovering grave robbers taking precious artifacts in Utah. The film begins properly when Dr Jones (Harrison Ford of course) is invited by wealthy Walter Donovan (Julian Glover) to help locate and recover the Holy Grail, said to grant eternal life to those who drink from it. But as Dr Jones soon realizes, he must rescue his Grail-expert father (Sean Connery) from the Nazis who also covet the Grail for their own evil purposes.

Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan – Space Jam Midnights at The Tivoli

16 August 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“I tought I taw – I did! I did! I did tee Michael Jordan!”

Space Jam screens midnights this Friday and Saturday (August 21st and 22nd) at The Tivoli Theater as part of the Reel at The Tivoli Midnight Show.

There’s a great scene into Space Jam (1996) when Bill Murray makes an unbilled appearance at a basketball game with Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes. An alien creature (voiced by Danny DeVito) says, “Hey! I didn’t know Dan Aykroyd was in this picture!” Bill Murray helps out the Looney Tunes team and then leaves the scene. But he comes back later again at the end when Larry Byrd takes a seat next to Bill, who, watching Michael Jordan dribbling the ball on court, says, “That coulda been me.”

You probably remember the clever mix of live action and cartoon animation in Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) which we screened last »

The Wizard Of Oz This Weekend at The Tivoli

9 August 2015 7:42 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“You have no power here! Begone, before somebody drops a house on you, too!”

The Wizard Of Oz screens midnights this weekend (August 14th and 15th) and at Noon on Saturday (the 15th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

I certainly can’t remember the first time I saw The Wizard Of Oz. I just seem to have always known what it was, how the songs go, and each and every character. It rightfully ranks on the list of most folks’ most beloved (if not best) of all time. I grew up with it on annual re-runs that were a big deal every Easter. The Wizard Of Oz is full of ironies. It was released in August 1939 to a somewhat indifferent audience and was not a success. Producer Mervyn LeRoy was so financially damaged he swore never to put another cent »

Sean Connery and His Red Diaper! Zardoz Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

2 August 2015 9:59 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“You have penetrated me. There is no escape. You are within me. Come into my center. Come into the center of the crystal!”

Zardoz (1974) screens midnights this weekend (August 7th and 8th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

In the distant future, a savage trained only to kill finds a way into the community of bored immortals that alone preserves humanity’s achievements. Sean Connery took the role of Zed in Zardoz (1974) as a way to break out of his his James Bond image, and boy, what a crazy movie he chose! Zardoz is without a doubt one of the best bad movies that you’ll ever see – a masterpiece as far as cheesiness goes. All throughout the movie, Connery’s wearing nothing more than a red thong so basically, you’ll be seeing him as you really never wanted to see him, »

Animator makes stunning 3D tribute to Hayao Miyazaki

30 July 2015 3:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The films of Hayao Miyazaki, including Spirited Away, Ponyo and Princess Mononoke, are celebrated by a fellow animator's short film...

Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki may be retired (though he is working on a short film to be shown at his Studio Ghibli Museum in Tokyo), but the influence of his magical films still remains. French animator Dono has created a heartfelt tribute to Miyazaki's films, from the pre-Ghibli Castle Of Cagliostro to his swansong, The Wind Rises.

Blending original 2D elements from Miyazaki's films with his own Ghibli-inspired 3D environments, it's a celebration of the characters and landscapes the Japanese master created. What's particularly noteworthy is just how well all these disparate characters and worlds - the light  fable Spirited Away, the harder-edged fantasy of Princess Mononoke - all blend together into one coherent sequence.

Topped off with Joe Hisaishi's music, it's a beguiling celebration of one of Japan's greatest storytellers. »

Votd: Hayao Miyazaki films come together in new 3D tribute

29 July 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hayao Miyazaki announced his retirement following his film, The Wind Rises, and it is tough to see a master like that go, but it seems like his fans are staying together to tribute the Japanese animator.

Vimeo user dono created a tribute to Miyazaki, which combines all of his films in a insanely cool 3D world that makes you feel like you’re flying between them. Set to the score by Joe Hisaishi for Spirited Away, the video takes a look at Miyazaki’s films such as Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, and Castle in the Sky.

As a giant fan of Miyazaki’s work, it was almost emotional seeing this tribute that seemed to re-imagine the characters in a connected world and allowed you to be reminded of all the great work that he did (plus how amazing Hisaishi’s score is).

There will be thousands of plastic spoons flying through the air in the Tivoli’s main screen this weekend.

Jurassic Park The Original! – Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

19 July 2015 7:32 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“T-Rex doesn’t want to be fed. He wants to hunt. Can’t just suppress 65 million years of gut instinct.”

Jurassic Park (1993) screens midnights this weekend (July 24th and 25th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

Upon its initial release Jurassic Park made $920 million worldwide (in 1993 dollars) at the box office. And now it’s back, at the Tivoli midnights this weekend as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.

The movie itself certainly holds up. In 1993, Jurassic Park did for monster movies what King Kong had originally done in 1933. It combines the new (at the time) visual effects technology of CG with a fantastic story and great characters to create a dizzying exciting movie packed with action, scares, intrigue, drama and humor. It was Spielberg doing what he does better than just about anybody – creating pure cinematic »

Hayao Miyazaki creates an animated short after retiring from feature-length filmmaking

13 July 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

After retiring from feature-length films and closing Studio Ghibli this past November, Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki is making a CG animated short film for the Ghibli Museum in Japan. According to the Anime News Network, his son, Goro Miyazaki, made the announcement at a talk show event in June. This will be the first time that Miyazaki will be venturing into CG animation after hand drawing all of his films. The story for the short film has yet to be revealed and while being 10 minutes long, the film has taken three years to make.

Most Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki fans are probably still upset that there are no more films coming from them, especially since they both created many masterpieces together such as Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle, just to name a few. But this news just shows that there is still great work to come from Miyazaki. »

“Here’s Johnny!” The Shining Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

“Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in. Not by the hair of your chiny-chin-chin? Well then I’ll huff and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in!”

The Shining (1980) screens midnights this weekend (July 17th and 18th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film, The Shining (based on the Stephen King novel) creates some of the most genuine spine chills ever filmed. Taking a job as a winter caretaker for a giant and remote hotel, Jack Nicholson, his wife Shelley Duvall, and his son Danny Lloyd, find that the long hallways and empty rooms contain more than a few ghosts. The film goes back and forth from scary to amusing as Jack, meticulously pacing his part, slowly turns into a psychopath, taking an axe to his loved ones. Kubrick’s use of space »

Studio Ghibli’s penultimate film is a beautiful, melancholic fairytale, while Roy Andersson finds a perverse hope in life’s futility

If Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli hadn’t indefinitely shuttered its production wing last year, the recent 30th anniversary might have been a sweeter celebration. This week offers at least one happy return, however, in their rapturous penultimate feature, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (StudioCanal, U) – a reminder of the signature artistry we might lose if the halt proves permanent and their far-from-exhausted capacity for creative exploration.

Veteran director Isao Takahata’s farewell film a typically lovely outing from Ghibli, but it’s far from typical in other senses: the whispery lyricism of its folkloric storytelling, as soft and spry as its pastel-sketch animation style, is miles removed from the dense felt-tip fantasy of Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away, though no less vivid. Drawn from a 10th-century fairytale about a reluctant princess, »

Comic-Con: Her Universe Fashion Show celebrates apparel for fangirls

10 July 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Joker, Sailor Moon and nerdy ladies were the big winners at the Her Universe Fashion Show last night. It’s an event where strutting down the runway were women wearing a Greek goddess-esque dress version of Groot, an elegant winter coat modeled after the Tardis, and a frock with a skirt shaped and detailed to look like the Death Star, among other high fashion takes on characters beloved by nerdy fans. In its second year at San Diego Comic-Con, the fashion show crowned two winners from the 25 finalists who submitted “geek couture” designs to Her Universe, the sci-fi fashion apparel company behind the event. The judging panel-selected winner was a design called “Joker’s New Look,” designed and modeled by Kelly Cercone. The attendee-voted top prize went to a “Sailor Moon” design called “Usagi’s Transformation,” which was designed by Leetal Platt and modeled by fan-favorite cosplayer Chloe Dykstra. »

“He’ll Be Back!” The Original The Terminator Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

The Terminator (1984) screens midnights this weekend (July 10th and 11th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.

Who would have thought a low budget science fiction movie aptly named The Terminator would be so iconic 30 years later as well as start the meteoric rise of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a legend in cinema, introduce director James Cameron to Hollywood as a force to be reckoned with, give a new meaning to audiences with the immortal line “I’ll be back”, spawn a large fan base, and then witness the birth of a big-budget saga with an even bigger sequel in 1991 that outdoes the first movie with Terminator 2 Judgement Day and then continue on with Terminator Rise Of The MacHines in 2003, Terminator Salvation »

The Tivoli Announces the ‘Reel Late’ Midnight Line-Up – Jurassic Park, The Room, Zardoz

4 July 2015 9:08 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“You’Re Tearing Me Apart, Lisa!”

Another great lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ for late July through early September. It’s a typically good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd and a couple of retro surprises are to be found. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. When I was that age, in the early ’80s, midnight standards included A Clockwork Orange (1971), The Graduate (1967), Night Of The Living Dead (1968), King Of Hearts (1966), and Harold And Maude (1971). Those last two haven’t shown in many years. King Of Hearts especially seems to have fallen off the cult movie radar , so imagine my surprise when I saw that the Tivoli had Harold And Maude as part of their new line-up. That’ll be some old school midnight fun »

Song Of The Sea: how an animated treat was made

3 July 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at how director Tomm Moore created the Oscar-nominated animation Song Of The Sea, and how the Irish landscape inspired it...

Walking along Ventry beach in south west island, it's easy to see how a filmmaker might be inspired by the spectacular landscape: the rolling hills and craggy rocks, the overwhelming air of tranquillity. But the inspiration for animator Tomm Moore's new film, the Oscar-nominated Song Of The Sea, was inspired by a less than tranquil experience.

About a decade ago, Moore was staying on holiday in the nearby town of Dingle, and visited Ventry beach with his 10-year-old son. To their horror, they found the beach littered with the bodies of dead grey seals. Reports at the time suggested that local fishermen, who blamed the seals for dwindling fish stocks, were responsible for the cull.

Spirited Away – The Blu Review

1 July 2015 4:47 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Once you do something, you never forget. Even if you can’t remember.“

A beloved film from the brilliant Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release.

People call Hiyao Miyazaki the Japanese Disney and Spirited Away from 2001 is considered one of his very best, if not his masterpiece. The film starts like a fairly typical take on Alice in Wonderland or Narnia. A girl is bought into a fantasy world and has to find her way back. But Miyazaki takes it even further. His heroine, ten year old Chihiro is a typically modern girl, upset about moving into a new home and afraid of new changes in her life. But after her parents take a detour into a strange tunnel she finds herself trapped and worst of all, her parents have been turned into pigs.

Miyazaki’s fantasy vision is quite simply jaw dropping. »
