It was movie madness week, and Stuart Heritage was there for all three incredibly long acts.
And, while Dermot locks into his three solid minutes of tedious number-reading, Im out of here. Thanks for coming along and joining in. Three things that you shouldnt forget:
1. You should come back here tomorrow night at 8pm for the X Factor results show liveblog, because the guests will be Ed Sheeran and OneRepublic and theyre apparently quite popular. Also: lets all hope that I remember to put the clocks back tonight, otherwise theres a pretty good chance Ill accidentally end up liveblogging that crap-looking Bradley Walsh gameshow instead.
All the judges are saying how nice Hank is. Youre A Monster, Stuart. A Monster. A Monster. A Monster.
Things I like about this performance: a load of green lights are pointing at Hank, and that makes him look »

“’John Carter of Mars’ was the creative stimulus behind such movie classics as ‘Superman,’ ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Avatar,’” said James Sullos, president of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. “Edgar Rice Burroughs was the master of adventure and his literary works continue to enjoy a worldwide following. We will be seeking a new partner to help develop new adventures on film as chronicled in the 11 Mars novels Burroughs wrote. This adventure never stops.”
It stopped at Disney, however, when “John Carter,” produced for $250 million, flopped at the box »

He will replace Bob Peterson as principal director on the animated film, Disney-Pixar has announced.
The movie was delayed last year from a 2014 to 2015 release after it was announced that Up co-director Peterson was stepping down from the project.
Sohn was formerly attached as co-director.
Our director Peter Sohn can't wait for you to meet Arlo! #TheGoodDinosaur releases in theaters November 2015.

It will be set in a world in which dinosaurs never became extinct and instead co-exist with mankind.
Details of the story are scarce, and it is believed to have been reworked extensively since Peterson's exit. »
And just when you thought the cinematic adventures of John Carter might be done and dusted, here comes an olive branch. Andrew Stanton's John Carter movie may well have cost a lot of money, and may not have made enough of it back to keep Disney happy, but it remains a film with no shortage of fans. Furthermore, Stanton had mapped out two further films, all based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs source material.
Yet the financial write-down that Disney took on the first John Carter film meant that plans for those follow-ups were abandoned. Bluntly, Disney had no intention of financing a John Carter 2. Andrew Stanton moved on to directing the Finding Nemo follow-up, Finding Dory.
As for John Carter? Film Divider is now reporting »

From long credits to bullet time, here are a few techniques and film conventions we don't see in the movies these days...
Over more than a century, cinema has built up its own storytelling vocabulary. Thanks to generations of intelligent and groundbreaking filmmakers, movies contain a rich and complex set of editing, filming and framing techniques, most of them so firmly embedded in our subconscious that we don't even think about them while we're sitting in our local multiplex.
Inevitably, there are some aspects of filmmaking that have changed considerably over time. New ideas and conventions continuously float in, while old ones become over-used and phase out as a result. It's the latter we're focusing on here: the filmmaking conventions and techniques that are either becoming rare, or have vanished altogether. Bear in mind that some of the things below may suddenly come back into vogue very soon, while the »

Published by Boom!
In Bravest Warriors #25, Kate Leth and Ian McGinty take a break from their ongoing storyline to add depth to Catbug’s mythos and introduce a new character, Bugcat. Bugcat is a palette swapped version of Catbug, who has his mischievousness, but lacks his cute charm and sense of humor. Leth and McGinty give Catbug some time on his own and show what he gets up to when he’s not being adorable around the Bravest Warriors. Leth delves into Catbug’s emotional life and reveals that he does have the true makings of a hero even if he killed Jelly Kid and completely failed at leadership in “Catbug’s Away Team”. Ian McGinty has a deft touch with facial expressions and reaction panels in the opening scene which features an ersatz version of Cards Against Humanity, »

The teaser for the latest feature from the animation powerhouse, Inside Out, only gives us a taste, but it's totally effective. First, you get to see a montage of past Pixar hits like Up and Finding Nemo, then the trailer reminds us of the emotions we felt while watching all these movies, which is their transition into the next film, which deals directly with those emotions. Literally. We briefly meet characters Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith), who are the emotions guiding a young girl named Riley through her life.

To promote Inside Out, Pixar is calling in the big guns — namely, its own catalog. In a new teaser trailer for the 2015 film — directed by Pete Docter and set inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley — the studio relives the highs and lows of A Bug's Life, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc., Up, Wall-e, Cars, Brave, Ratatouille and the Toy Story trilogy, only to ask, "Ever wonder where all those emotions really live?" The teaser then introduces the upcoming film's central characters: Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust

Pixar’s Inside Out, coming from Up director Pete Docter in 2015, is all about emotion. In its first teaser trailer, it’s being called a “major emotion picture.” Get it? The tease plays out like a Pixar clip reel, showing off the many emotions we’ve felt over the years for movies like Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story, Up and the emotional powerhouse that was Wall-e. Pixar is very good at pulling on those heartstrings. Now they’ll take us into the mind of a teenage girl, where as we all know, emotions can be intense. Watch the first trailer. Feel the emotion. Remember all the wonders of Pixar before they introduce their alien-like new characters. Inside Out begins playing with your emotions June 19, 2015.

Did you ever wonder what your emotions actually look like? Leave it to the animation geniuses at Pixar to put a visual on such human feelings as joy, anger, sadness, disgust and fear for their upcoming comedy Inside Out. The studio shared an anticipated trailer for next summer.s movie. We have it for you above. The clip cleverly connects Inside Out -- which they are describing as "A Major Emotion Picture" . to the rich, emotional history of past Pixar movies. And yes, when we see all of the examples of the different emotions in movies like Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Up, Finding Nemo and Cars, it does appear like Inside Out is the movie that Pixar has been preparing to make for decades. Amy Poehler of Parks and Rec and Saturday Night Live lends her voice to Joy, the apparent leader of the various emotions of Riley . a young »
We hadn’t checked in on Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Dory” in a while. The sequel to insta-classic “Finding Nemo” has its star, Ellen DeGeneres, who is returning to the franchise to voice the easily-confused fish Dory. There have been some voice acting developments recently, but first let’s recap as to who is returning to the film along with DeGeneres. Albert Brooks and Willem Dafoe, who played the Nemo’s dad Marlin and fishtank leader Gill, respectively, are also coming back. Vicki Lewis is also returning as fishtank denizen Deb (and, by extension, Deb’s mirror image “sister” Flo). But news has been released of two new voices joining the fun–Idris Elba and Dominic West. [ Read More ]
"I saw Idris recently," West told Shortlist. "We're both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that.
"I'm in pretty regular contact with a lot of guys from The Wire - a lot of them are godparents to my kids, so I love them dearly."
Finding Dory will arrive in Us cinemas on June 17 and in the UK on July 29.
Pixar at the movies - in pictures: »
Idris Elba and Dominic West, the actors who portrayed McNulty and Stringer Bell on The Wire, have joined Pixar's Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. West revealed the news in an interview with ShortList saying:
"I saw Idris recently. We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that. I’m in pretty regular contact with a lot of guys from The Wire — a lot of them are godparents to my kids, so I love them dearly."
I never thought I'd see these two hardcore characters from The Wire in a Pixar film, but here they are. They join an already impressive cast that includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Willem Dafoe, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, and Ty Burrell.
The story takes place a year after the first film, and is set along the California coastline.

“We’re both in the sequel to ‘Finding Nemo'” West revealed in an interview this week with Shortlist, “so we were recording that.”
Also set to star retuning cast Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Willem Dafoe, as well as new additions Diane Keaton (The Godfather), Eugene Levy (American Pie) and Ty Burrell (Modern Family), Finding Dory takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
Finding Dory hits theaters on June 17th, »

Fans of The Wire who dreamt that the show would one day have a reunion can kind of rejoice! Dominic West has confirmed he will voice a character in Pixar.s Finding Dory alongside Idris Elba, a fellow alumni of HBO.s critically lavished drama. During a discussion with Shortlist , West revealed that the hugely anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo will have a Baltimore vibe flowing throughout it. "We.re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo," declared the actor when probed, "so we were recording that." There.s not too much more to glean from West.s remarks, but the fact that he noted the pair recorded their vocal efforts alongside each other would suggest that their characters will appear on screen together. Does this mean that there will be references to Bubbles, Carver, Lester and Omar dotted throughout the Pixar adventure? You.d hope so, but they will »
Stringer Bell and Jimmy McNulty might be sharing the screen again, sort of. But instead of confronting each other on the mean streets of Baltimore, they’ll be taking to the sea.
Wire alums Idris Elba and Dominic West are reportedly lending their voices to Finding Dory, Disney and Pixar’s followup to Finding Nemo. West revealed the news in an interview with ShortList magazine this week.
- Lindsey Bahr
We already know that Idris Elba will be lending his distinctive vocals to Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s Jungle Book. But according to his former Wire co-star Dominic West, he’ll also be working on Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory.Talking to Shortlist, West revealed that he’s in regular contact with several of the actors from the much-praised HBO series and that he and Elba are both performing voice duties on Dory. We hope they've met around a microphone once or twice in the course of their work, and exchanged some chat in flawless Baltimore accents.Finding Dory, of course, will act as the follow-up to the company’s 2003 smash hit and explores Ellen DeGeneres’ character and her family. Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton are set as her parents, Charlie and Jenny, while Ty Burrell is comic whale sidekick Bailey. Oh! Oh! We speak Whale! »
