‘Buffy,’ ‘Community,’ ’30 Rock’ and More: TV’s 12 Best Musical Episodes and How Well They Worked in Song and Dance

27 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Musical TV shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” or “Glee” have a built-in understanding with audiences that bursting into a song or dance is part of the storytelling. When it comes to non-musical series, however, staging a musical number or episode can be a more challenging when it comes to finding an organic way to work it into the plot.

Recently, The CW’s superhero show “The Flash” and Syfy’s fantasy drama “The Magicians” dipped their toes into the world of musicals. “The Flash” tapped a character called Music Meister (Darren Criss) to knock out Kara and Barry (Melissa Benoit, Grant Gustin) and send them into an alternate reality, where they had to sing and dance their way to finding solutions. Music Meister, a super villain who could control people through music, has already been introduced in the DC Universe via animated series “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” (and voiced »

Lou Director Introduces Pixar's Newest Monster | Exclusive

16 March 2017 3:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the great joys for many years when seeing a Pixar movie is not only the movie itself, but the original short film that play in front of the main feature. In some cases, these shorts are more memorable than the actual movies themselves. I have a feeling that may wind up being the case with Lou, the brand new short film from Pixar that will be playing ahead of Cars 3 this June.

Pixar decided to bring Lou to SXSW and treat some lucky audiences to the short before most of the world gets to see it when Cars 3 hits theaters on June 16. I was fortunate enough to catch it and Pixar has made some very memorable shorts, but this really ranks up there. Lou tugs at the heartstrings in the way only a Pixar project can and short film or not, it truly embodies everything we »

Here’s the stunning first trailer for Pixar’s latest film Coco

15 March 2017 6:24 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

A new Pixar movie is always something to celebrate. When it is a completely new vision from the Emeryville dream makers it’s even more special. Coco is a far cry from the stuttering engine of Pixar’s Cars trilogy (with a new installment, Cars 3, due out later this year). Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina are co-directing this tale of a young boy and his curious attachment to a guitar, and the music of an old folk hero.

Looking a little less like 2014’s The Book of Life than previously expected, this new vision looks utterly wonderful. Anthony Gonzalez voices the 12-year old Miguel, Benjamin Bratt is the voice of fabled musician Ernesto de la Cruz. Gael Garcia Bernal and Renée Victor are also among the voice cast.

Unkrich had spoken to Entertainment Weekly about his journey with the film, and how it was the day »

Coco, set during the Day of the Dead in Mexico, follows a boy living in a village who adores music, but his shoemaking family has banned it for generations as they believe it’s a curse passed down from his great-grandfather. This sets off a journey to discover more about his past and his passion.

Featuring the voices of Benjamin BrattGael García Bernal, newcomer Anthony Gonzalez and Renée Victor, the first trailer has landed. First introducing our main character as it looks to be celebration of Mexican culture, the preview segues to reveal a much larger adventure at hand.

Lightning Strikes And Mater Returns In First Cars 3 TV Spot

13 March 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lightning strikes (again) and Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) returns in the blistering first TV spot for Cars 3, Brian Fee’s upcoming animated threequel penciled in for release on June 16th.

Coming to us via this weekend’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards, which also brought forth a new and indeed extended peek at Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight, the brief promo above casts light on, well, the more light-hearted side of Fee’s rip-roaring sequel. The return of Mater will no doubt please long-time fans of the Cars series, who can be seen dolling out some questionable advice to Owen Wilson’s bruised red stock car.

Stuck in a rut following a devastating crash, Lightning McQueen finds himself unknowingly pushed to the sidelines as a new generation of ice-cool racers takes control of the circuit. Wanting nothing more than to challenge for the Piston Cup once more, Wilson »

Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, Lea DeLaria And Lewis Hamilton Join Disney·Pixar’S Cars 3

Miss Fritter (voice of Lea DeLaria) loves the smash-and-crash life of demolition derby. A local legend at the Thunder Hollow Speedway, Fritter’s formidable school-bus size is intimidating, but it’s her smoke stacks of doom, razor-sharp stop sign and crazy collection of her victims’ license plates that usually steers her opponents in the other direction. ©2017 Disney•Pixar.

Disney•Pixar’s Cars 3 reveals key voice cast and characters, featuring award-winning stars. According to director Brian Fee, the roster includes both new and returning characters. “We’re introducing some fun and really appealing characters in ‘Cars 3,’” said Fee, “so we really wanted to find the right voices to help us breathe life into them. We hit a homerun with this group; I couldn’t be happier.”

Cars 3 Adds 3 New Cast Members and Several Familiar Faces

9 March 2017 11:42 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A lot of familiar faces will be rooting Lightning McQueen on this summer.  Disney-Pixar announced, today, the arrival new castmembers joining Cars 3, old and new.  Find out who they are!

The last time Disney-Pixar checked in, it was to introduce Armie Hammer and Cristela Alonzo to the cast of Cars 3.  Today, they announced three more stars lending their voices to the animated feature.

Kerry Washington (ABC’s “Scandal,” HBO’s “Confirmation”) lends her voice to Natalie Certain, a highly respected statistical analyst who knows her numbers. Book-smart and mathematically gifted, Certain may earn top marks in her ability to evaluate a racer’s stats, but she could be underestimating the importance of determination.

Author: Zehra Phelan

On your marks, get set go!!!!!!!!! Back at the beginning of January, we reported that Disney Pixar where adding two new characters in the form of Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) and Cruiz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) to the next instalment of Cars. Lean, mean fast killing machines – well not quite killing but sleeker and faster than Lightning McQueen.

It has now emerged that we have another three newcomers joining Lightning McQueen in the battle of his career and a return vocal performance from Three-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton who lent his voice to Cars 2 as himself.

Nathan Fillion And Kerry Washington Zoom Into Cars 3

8 March 2017 9:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite their status as one of the best when it comes to animation, Pixar has certainly had more than a few stumbles along the way. It’s no secret that perhaps one of their weakest efforts was Cars, which was followed up by the even worse Cars 2. As such, it’s definitely a bit surprising that the studio is moving ahead with a third instalment in the series, but given that this is Hollywood – where money talks – I suppose it makes a bit of sense.

After all, the first two outings earned a healthy profit at the box office and this June, Cars 3 will zoom into theaters hoping to do the same. The only difference is that the threequel actually looks pretty good, with recent trailers marking a significant improvement from where we last left the property. Of course, we’re not one to judge a film based solely on the previews, »

‘This Is Us’: How Dan Fogelman Broke Records and Hearts With NBC’s Hit

7 March 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mandy Moore is crying.

Given that she’s filming a scene for NBC’s breakout hit “This Is Us,” tears might as well be written into her contract. But the actress is trying to get through a particularly impassioned speech to Sterling K. Brown, who plays her adopted son, Randall, and it’s taking its toll. Take after take on the tree-lined streets of L.A.’s Hancock Park, which stands in for New Jersey, she pushes herself, the tears threatening to destroy the prosthetics that turn the 32-year-old star into a sixtysomething grandmother — until a passing bird “releases,” as Brown puts it ever so politely, on her hat.

The crew erupts in laughter, dissipating the tension that’s been building all afternoon.

It’s that cry-until-you-laugh alchemy that has made the series the success story of the fall. The drama — which charts the lives of Rebecca and Jack Pearson (Moore and Milo »

New Cars 3 Trailer Zooms Online

27 February 2017 9:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Pixar sequel nobody wanted or asked for has another trailer. Judging by what we see in this latest preview, Cars 3 will involve sentient race car Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) driving very fast in a circular race against other talking cars. It seems as if he’ll have some new competition, too, from a black car with neon blue trim named Jackson Storm (voiced by Armie Hammer).

At some point, McQueen will apparently suffer a terrible crash and be forced to pick himself up again, discovering the ‘real’ meaning of racing along the way. I’m guessing all the sentient cars will be friends by the time the movie wraps up, too. My prediction: it’s basically going to be a Rocky sequel, but with talking cars instead of brain damaged boxers.

Maybe I’m being too harsh on Cars 3. Sure, Cars was greeted with a »

Cars 3 Trailer #3 Takes Lightning McQueen to the Finish Line

27 February 2017 8:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday may have been Hollywood's biggest night, but while all of the stars were getting ready to walk the red carpet, Nascar was busy holding their biggest event of the entire year. The Daytona 500 took place yesterday and Disney felt that would be a perfect time to get some people on board for Cars 3. They did so by dropping another brand new trailer, and it may be the best one we've seen so far.

The new 90-second trailer for Cars 3 first aired during the Daytona 500, but was then later uploaded online by Disney and Pixar for everyone to enjoy. During the 59th annual Daytona 500, star Owen Wilson was on hand as Grand Marshall for the big event, which also served as a nice bit of promotion for the upcoming bookend for the Cars trilogy. As we have seen in previous trailers, this new video makes it clear that »

New trailer for Cars 3 takes us on a tough journey for Lightning McQueen

27 February 2017 3:22 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Lightning McQueen is no stranger to overcoming a few hurdles and after its teaser, which was released back in January, showcasing his horrific crash, somersaulting through the air things looked pretty bleak for this champion racing car.

Related: Cars 3 Sneek Peek

Now with a brand new trailer showcasing the stronger, faster and sleeker new generation, is it a question of time before Lightning is made to retire? The trailer, which builds up to his crash, also shows him determined not to let the new blood steal his racing thunder as he puts himself through a grueling comeback against all odds to show he is still the one to beat as he gets a major overhaul.

Owen Wilson returns to Disney Pixar’s winning team but is now also joined by new blood to give an injection of life with Cars animator turned director Brian Fee. New »
