There aren't a lot of interesting movies hitting theaters this May. Heck, there aren't a lot of movies, period, hitting theaters this May. Sure, one title that will soon be crowned one of the biggest of all-time -- you know the one of which I speak -- after it bowed late last night to the tune of $27.6 million. Who knows, it could very well be the case that several of you read this article while you're standing in line to see the-movie-that-shall-not-be-named-until-page-two. And if that's the case, I urge you to share this with your cohorts, all those people standing around you looking for something to do until the movie finally (Finally!) starts. Do it now, don't worry, I'll wait. But back to what I was saying... Outside of a handful of blockbusters, there just isn't a lot on the release slate for the coming month. It's slim pickings, y'all! »

While we already know the short that will be screening in front of Pixar’s Inside Out here this July (Lava, a clip from which you can see here), the company has now announced the film that will be attached to its late 2015 release, The Good Dinosaur. Take a look at the first picture from Sanjay’s Super Team. It’s the directorial debut of Sanjay Patel, an artist who has worked in character design and animation at the studio since A Bug’s Life. After working on movies such as The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Monsters University, he’s bringing to life a story based on his own childhood.Growing up in California in the 1980s as the child of Indian immigrants, his world was a blend of the superheroes he loved to watch in cartoons on TV and his parents’ strong religion. So the short follows him as a youngster combining both worlds, »
Composers are the last creative contributors to a movie, and usually the ones who get crunched, schedule-wise, as release dates loom. In this regard Michael Giacchino has just been through the wringer. He has written and recorded, back-to-back, the scores for three summer tentpole movies, all being released within four weeks of each other.
In order to meet the deadlines, he has been working nonstop since late 2014. “The second I finished one, I was on to the next,” an exhausted Giacchino said during a quick break from writing “Jurassic.” “There is literally no margin for error whatsoever. The schedules fell like building blocks, right against each other.”

Pixar shorts are usually pretty great, and they’re about to become more racially diverse. The La Times has released a first look at Pixar’s upcoming short film, “Sanjay’s Super Team”. Directed by Sanjay Patel, who has worked as an animator on multiple Pixar films including A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 3, and The Incredibles, the story is based on his childhood and reconciling his love of superheroes with his father’s meditation ceremony. Per the La Times: The seven-minute short begins with young Sanjay watching cartoons and eating cereal in a bland, beige room as his father jingles a bell, beckoning him to join in meditation. Reluctant and bored by the ceremony, Sanjay begins daydreaming a kind of ancient, Hindu version of "The Avengers," with the gods appearing like superheroes. As the daydream progresses, the color, light and animation of the film grows increasingly dazzling and cosmic, »

Brad Bird gave New Yorkers a glimpse at the Tomorrowland clip that's playing at the Disney parks preview for the film but hasn't yet officially appeared online, debuting a few minutes of his highly-anticipated, George Clooney-starring sci-fi film at the Tribeca Film Festival. During his hour-long chat with Janeane Garofalo, who lent her voice to Bird's Ratatouille, the filmmaker behind The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol and Tomorrowland talked about transitioning from animated to live-action films. He also talked about the concept of Tomorrowland, without revealing much about the secretive movie. And he revealed

Yesterday, Disney unleashed a new trailer for their mystery adventure "Tomorrowland," one that seems to have (finally) gotten people excited, while also quietly launching an amazingly immersive new website that goes along with the film, TakeMeToTomorrowland.com. While it's impressive in any format, it's really special if you look at it on your phone, where you're encouraged to tour the sprawling futuristic utopia using the smart phone's motion sensors. (I was playing around with this on the train and really weirded out the woman behind me, since I had to physically turn around to get a glimpse of the gleaming city.) But giving the site a thorough exploration will yield unexplored treasures that we can exclusively reveal.
The site is full of interactive games, narration explaining the landscape and the ability to snap a selfie with a sci-fi backdrop (apparently selfies are still big in the future), but there are also bits of video, »

The first teasers for Tomorrowland didn't show too much of star George Clooney and what the movie is actually about, but the later trailers have been showing more of Clooney and Britt Robertson's characters in the futuristic land.

See the new spot above! Check out the previous trailers. And here's the first teaser. »
These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.
But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »
If you were feeling indifferent about Tomorrowland before, this is the trailer that Brad Bird fans have been waiting for.

In a smart move by Disney, the latest preview expands upon an action set-piece in which we see George Clooney's Frank Walker and »

Almost a year after it was officially announced, Brad Bird revealed earlier this month that he’s started writing the script for The Incredibles 2, and now during an interview with Little White Lies he’s spoken about the follow-up to the 2004 animated hit, explaining that he wants to avoid it coming across as a commentary on the current state of the superhero genre:
“Well, I worry if you comment too much on other movies then you might just be coasting off their good will. There was a very lazy trend in comedy where somebody would start singing the theme song from The Flintstones and you’re supposed to dig on it just because you recognise it. So I don’t like that. I think that movies ought to work in and of themselves. I think that the greatest special effect is caring about a character. A lot of movies seem to forget that, »

There's still a lot of mystery surrounding this summer's sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland from director Brad Bird, but it's a Disney film, and it has direct ties to the theme park attraction of the same name that has been around for decades since Walt Disney was still alive. Now two new featurettes dive into the fascination that Disney himself had with the innovations of the future, and the ideas he had in order to make civilization more efficient, not to mention the narrative in the film as well. And the footage also shows that there's a lot of inspiration from the past with regards to what we'll see on the big screen next month. Here's the two featurettes for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland straight from Disney: You can also still watch the most recent Us trailer for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland right here.

Writer-director Brad Bird confirmed last week that he has started writing the script for The Incredibles 2, one year after Disney originally announced that this sequel to The Incredibles is finally happening. Of course, not much has been revealed about the story at this time, but in the 10 years since The Incredibles was released in late 2004, the superhero genre itself has grown exponentially. The filmmaker recently spoke with Little White Lies, where he says that he doesn't exactly plan on addressing certain developments or trends within the genre itself for his sequel. And that this will be a character driven adventure.
"Well, I worry if you comment too much on other movies then you might just be coasting off their good will. There was a very lazy trend in comedy where somebody would start singing the theme song from The Flintstones and you're supposed to dig on it just because you recognize it. »
Paul Feig is Hollywood’s most popular ladies’ man.
That’s not to suggest he’s a lothario or creepy man-on-the-make. It’s just that in his job as a top movie director, he arguably has done more in recent years than anyone else in the business to enable actresses to play the kinds of delicious characters that traditionally had been the domain of their male counterparts. There’s an encouraging shift under way at the box office with such female-driven hits as “Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Cinderella,” “Insurgent” and “Maleficent” burning up the bigscreen. And Feig, who has demonstrated a fondness for funny women, has played a central role part in helping to create and maintain that momentum, with a resume of blockbuster comedies.

Brad Bird has slightly nibbled the hand that fed him by criticizing just how popular the superhero genre has become. The Incredibles director believes that the sheer amount of superhero movies out there right now means that the market has become very saturated; so much so that there.s not a lot of room left for a filmmaker to leave their artistic imprint. Bird made his comments during his discussion with Little White Lies after being probed about his script for The Incredibles 2. First noting that he has no interest in coasting off the success of the first film, he then explained: I would say that the superhero movie turf right now is very trodden over . it.s kind of like a field that.s had too many games on it, and it.s just dried up dirt at this point. Now there are two ways to take Bird »
The duo soon learn that decisions made in the mystical Tomorrowland can have dire consequences on the people of earth.
The long-gestating project is loosely based on the popular Disneyland theme park attraction of the same name, which opened back in 1955. Disney's new television spot includes whizzing monorails, which are a staple of Disneyland.
