20 years ago today: Disney’s own outcast, ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame,’ premiered

21 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Has it really been 20 years since Hunchback of Notre Dame hit theaters? Oui, c'est vrai!  The 34th animated feature from the House of Mouse, Hunchback has a place among the Disney Renaissance movies of the 1990s, though it tends to be less remembered and celebrated than the likes of The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Mulan. Adapted from Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel, it’s darker than many Disney pics, and the only animated movie from the studio that’s had a major focus on themes of religion and faith. Though the filmmakers “were told to not make the movie too religious — a pretty daunting task when you consider how much of this story takes place inside of a big church,” animator Floyd Norman said. Hunchback of Notre Dame also had an outcast hero that didn’t look like dashing princes of Disney films past.

Game Of Thrones: the rules of magic in the Seven Kingdoms

Resurrections. Photoshop face-swaps. Shadow babies. Mystical Kevlar. What exactly can and can’t magic do in Game Of Thrones?

Spoilers for anyone not up-to-date with Game Of Thrones.

The greatest exchange in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is as follows:

Desperate, optimistic Finn: “We’ll figure it out! We’ll use the Force!”

Withering Han: “That’s not how the Force works.”

Finn’s line is so funny because it’s preposterous. We’re right there with Han, shaking our heads and tsking ‘That’s not how the Force works, dummy. Jeez, what a prong’.

Except, Finn isn’t a prong. Having led what we can only assume to have been the fairly sheltered life of a career Stormtrooper, he just doesn’t know the rules. Finn lives in a universe where magic—call The Force what you like but that’s what it is—legitimately exists, »

Why Did J.K. Rowling Kill Off This Harry Potter Character?

2 May 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though today is just another Monday for most people, devoted fans of the Harry Potter franchise remember this date as one that is quite significant. Today marks the 18th Anniversary for the Battle of Hogwarts in J.K. Rowling's final book Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. The epic war saw several beloved characters pass away. In honor of this anniversary, author J.K. Rowling spoke out about why she decided to kill off one particular character in this battle, Remus Lupin.

Remus Lupin was played by David Thewlis in five of the eight Harry Potter movies, and he was quite beloved by fans of both the books and movies alike. Remus was afflicted with lycanthropy as a child and he could transform into a werewolf, which could be curbed with the help of Wolfsbane Potion. He eventually became Hogwarts' Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and later joined the Order of the Phoenix, »

How Harry Potter was nearly been very, very different

It's the small decisions along the way that shape major successes - and Harry Potter had lots of potential turning points...

Spanning a series of books, films, merchandising prospects, an amusement park and - soon - a spin-off film and West End show, Harry Potter is one of the most iconic franchises in the history of fandom.

But things could have been very, very different…

Spoilers lie ahead for the Harry Potter series.

1. What if Harry Potter had never been published?

It’s been well-documented that J K Rowling struggled to get her first book published.

Almost a dozen houses, including Penguin, TransWorld and Harper Collins, rejected Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone outright.

When a first chapter arrived at Bloomsbury Publishing, it was destined to remain in the slush pile until its curious black binding caught the eye of a lowly assistant. On a whim, »

Beyond the Valley by Anne-Katrin Titze

John Waters on Isabelle Huppert: "It's amazing, she gets in the skin of whoever it is." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

At the Us première of Valley Of Love, Guillaume Nicloux's searing portrait of a long divorced couple (Gérard Depardieu and Isabelle Huppert), John Waters recalled Bertrand Blier's Going Places (Les Valseuses) as his first Isabelle experience, Catherine Breillat's Abuse Of Weakness (Abus De Faiblesse), and wishing he had seen her in Tennessee Williams' Streetcar Named Desire or Sarah Kane's 4.48 Psychosis, or Jean Genet's The Maids with Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Debicki.

The next morning over coffee, I shared greetings from her Tip Top director Serge Bozon and Mrs. Hyde, where Isabelle will star with Romain Duris and Depardieu. At the French Embassy after party celebrating 25 years of French electronic music with DJs Busy P, Boston Bun, Superpoze and Jacques, she tried to answer John Waters earlier posed question. »

15 of the 20 most profitable blockbusters are sequels

The reason Hollywood keeps making sequels? They make the most profit, on the whole...

A new piece of research by Forbes has concluded that if you want to make serious cash from a blockbuseter movie then you need to be in the sequel business.

Taking figures provided by The Numbers, it analysed a list of what it reckoned to be the most profitable films ever – albeit by a fairly crude formula, that we’ll come to in a second – and discovered that 15 of the 20 films concerned were sequels.

The crude formula? It took the estimated cost of production of the film concerned, a figure that in truth is impossible to gleam at the best of times, and took away the worldwide income to the studio. Income, though, isn’t the same as profit. $1 taken at the box office in the Us returns more money to a movie »
