We obviously love summer, but there’s something about October that we can’t get enough of. Falling leaves, a chance to finally break out our favourite sweaters, and Halloween (easily our favourite holiday) all make the colder weather bearable. October is also the unofficial beginning of awards season, with studios releasing their biggest contenders as the year winds down.

While there are tons of cool movies hitting Cineplex theatres this month, there are also plenty of exciting movies coming to the Cineplex Store that you can watch from the coziness of your own home. We’ve picked five of our favourites for you here, so read on to see what new Cineplex Store title you should »

Alex Moreland chats with Siddhartha Khosla about Marvel’s Runaways and more…

So, how did you first get involved with Marvel’s Runaways?

Well, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are the creators of the show so we, you know, set up a meeting with them to talk about doing their show and we had a kinda common vision for what the music of the show should sound like. The score, which is what I’m responsible for, we had a nice conversation about the show and I read the script and that was it, I started working on the show. We just had a common vision for what the score of the show should sound like.

There was this desire to do something that was slightly different compared to what we’re used to seeing. Historically for kind of the Marvel projects, we opted to go for something that was »

U.S. Studios Don't Need U.S. Audiences Anymore

27 July 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Stop me if you've heard these: Wonder Woman is the highest-grossing film of the summer. The latest Transformers is a flop. Valerian has no chance to make its budget back. All of these statements are false (well, maybe not the one about Valerian...). That is, if you're looking at the worldwide box office. While many news sites continue to primarily report on movies' success (or lack thereof) in the good ol' United States, increasingly, U.S. studios are looking to foreign shores to not only pad their films' numbers, but to justify entire franchises.

In 1989, Tim Burton's Batman was the quintessential franchise starter. It had a memorable actor in Michael Keaton playing the hero, and movie legend Jack Nicholson played the film's villain. On a budget of $35 million, the movie scored $251 million in the U.S. box office, and immediately warranted a sequel. It also made a cool $160 million in foreign theaters, »

I’ve got questions about the Cars cinematic universe

18 July 2017 1:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 19, 2017

With spoilers, some questions have sprung to mind about Pixar's Cars films. Er, can you help?

The world of the Cars films has always been a bit of a puzzle for me. I don’t have a massive affection for the films, although quite enjoyed movies number one and three. The origins of this particular film world are said to lie in a road trip that John Lasseter – who directed the first two movies – took with his family. That, combined with work Pixar had already been doing on a film called The Yellow Car, set things into motion, and in 2006, the film debuted as Pixar’s fifth feature.

I don’t want to delve into the critical response to Cars. I don’t think it’s going out on too far of a limb to call it Pixar’s least-regarded boxset, but also, I get that these »

Exclusive: Owen Wilson on playing Lightning McQueen in Cars 3 & how even he got emotional during Marley & Me

17 July 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Much like with Toy Story, Cars is yet another Pixar franchise to be entering in to its third movie – and we had the pleasure of sitting down with the trilogy’s leading star Owen Wilson – who voices Lightning McQueen.

We discussed with Wilson what he believes it is about this series, and these characters, which keeps drawing audiences back in, and whether there was a challenge in ensuring this latest production not only appealed to established fans, but newcomers too.

He goes on to speak about his closeness to this character of Lightning, and how much of his own input he was allowed during the making of the feature. On the same topic we ask which character he’d most like to revisit again on screen, while also – and following on from a theme in the movie – we ask about getting older, and whether he resents it, »

Cars 3 review – whiz without the fizz

16 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The world’s favourite talking vehicles are showing their age in this latest animated joyride

A third zip around the racetrack for Pixar’s Cars franchise, this time tackling an older generation’s anxieties about irrelevance in the internet age, with racing veteran Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) almost edged out by Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer), a sleeker, faster, more efficient anthropomorphised automobile. A sly feminist subplot involving trainer Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) is welcome, and it’s a colourful, spry enough ride, but it doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel.

‘Toy Story 4’ Won’t Be Directed by John Lasseter, ‘The Incredibles 2’ Focuses on Elastigirl and More from D23 Expo

15 July 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Attendees of the D23 Expo were treated to a bevy of new information about upcoming Disney and Pixar projects last night. Perhaps the biggest news is that John Lasseter is no longer set to co-direct “Toy Story 4” alongside Josh Cooley, who’s now set to helm the project on his lonesome; Lasseter, Pixar’s chief creative officer, directed the original film back in 1995. Cooley served as head of story on “Inside Out” and began his tenure at Pixar as an intern on “Cars.”

Pixar, Disneytoons new movies teased

15 July 2017 12:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Don Kaye Jul 17, 2017

A “suburban fantasy world” is the subject of a new Pixar film, whilst there might just be a Planes spin-off coming too...

Although Pixar has sequels like Toy Story 4 and The Incredibles 2 in the works, the studio still continues to develop and produce original movies. John Lasseter took the opportunity at D23 in California over the weekend to announce a brand new original project from the company, an untitled “suburban fantasy world” movie to be helmed by Monsters University director Dan Scanlon.

Coming to the stage with little else at this point but some concept art, Scanlon was armed with one more thing: the emotional inspiration behind the film. Scanlon detailed how he lost his father when he was very young, with just a few words on a voice recording to even know what he sounded like, and that he and his brother have always »

Newswire: John Lasseter is no longer co-directing Toy Story 4

14 July 2017 6:20 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Despite previous reports that he’d be co-directing the film (after taking the third installment off) Pixar leader John Lasseter won’t be in the director’s chair for Toy Story 4. Variety reports that Lasseter broke the news to fans at Disney’s D23 expo today, revealing that he’s leaving the franchise’s fourth installment in the hands of his previously announced co-director, Josh Cooley.

Lasseter and Toy Story are basically synonymous with Pixar’s rise over the last 20 years, from the bold ambition and bright humor of the original, through the darker overtones (and occasional sequel fatigue) of the subsequent installments. Now, though, Cooley—who started at the studio as an intern on Cars, and who worked as a story supervisor on the studio’s triumphantly well-received Inside Out—will handle sole directing duties on Toy Story 4.

Toy Story 4 undergoes a director change

Don Kaye Jul 17, 2017

John Lasseter isn't directing Toy Story 4 anymore, he confirms.

At Disney’s D23 Expo 2017 in Anaheim, California over the weekend, Pixar and Disney Animation head John Lasseter surprised the packed convention hall by revealing that he was stepping down as the co-director of Toy Story 4.

Lasseter did not give a reason why he was not going to co-direct his first feature since Cars 2 in 2011, but instead focused on introducing his co-director Josh Cooley, who will now receive sole directing credit on the fourth Toy Story entry. No other plot or cast details were revealed for the 2019 release.

Cooley began his career at Pixar in 2004 as an intern and later worked as a storyboard artist on The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille, Up and Cars 2. He also was a screenwriter on Inside Out, and wrote and directed two shorts, including Riley’s First Date?

‘Toy Story 4’: Josh Cooley Becomes Sole Director as John Lasseter Steps Down

14 July 2017 4:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John Lasseter has stepped down as director of “Toy Story 4,” leaving co-director Josh Cooley to take full reins.

Lasseter revealed the news on Friday at D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. Lasseter, Pixar’s chief creative officer, has directed the first “Toy Story” in 1995. He will stay on the project as an executive producer.

Cooley, head of story on the Pixar hit “Inside Out,” was named one of Variety‘s 10 Animators to Watch in 2015. Cooley started at the company as an intern working on “Cars.”

“To be co-director on ‘Toy Story 4’ with John, who brought the ‘Toy Story’ characters to the screen 20 years ago, is a dream come true,” he told Variety in 2015. “When I first saw ‘Toy Story,’ I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. ‘Toy Story 4’ will continue that tradition and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part »

Disney Dates New Animated Film — Possible ‘Planes’ Sequel — for April 2019

14 July 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Disney dated a new animated movie for April 12, 2019, at the D23 Expo on Friday afternoon.

John Lasseter, who walked onstage with a t-shirt cannon in hand that launched Hawaiian shirts at eventgoers, made the announcement at the Pixar and Walt Disney Animation panel.

“It is harder to think of a title than it is to get to space,” the Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Disneytoon Studios chief creative officer said about the untitled Disneytoon film, which may be a sequel to the studio’s 2013 pic “Planes.”

Disney Unveils 'Cars'/'Planes' Spinoff That Will Go to Space

Disney is heading to space.

After an emotional ceremony honoring this year's Disney Legends, D23 continued in earnest Friday with the company's animation panel — where it announced the next chapter in its Cars universe.

John Lasseter came onstage, using a merch gun to whip the crowd into a frenzy, and he showed off footage from a new Disneytoon project he dubbed "the speed test."

The footage was something akin to Top Gun on steroids, with planes that go all the way into space. The planes had faces, like those seen in the two installments of Cars spinoff Planes, »
