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! »

Rats and chefs will be invading London's Royal Albert Hall in October for Ratatouille Live in Concert.
The Pixar film is to be screened in full during October half-term, accompanied by an orchestra performing Michael Giacchino's score.
The film won the Best Animated Feature Oscar in 2007 and Giacchino's score won a Grammy Award and was nominated for an Oscar.
It follows the adventures of Remy, a food-loving rat who risks his life in Parisian kitchens in pursuit of fine food as he begins a friendship with a novice young kitchen worker called Alfredo Linguini.
Lucy Noble, director of events at the Royal Albert Hall, said: "When clips from the movie were shown during our sell-out Pixar in Concert event, they simply brought the house down, and now we can't wait to present the movie in its entirety. Ratatouille is a modern classic, with an unforgettable score, and perfect fun for all the family. »
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.”

One of the highlights of this year's Tribeca Film Festival ended up being Brad Bird.s conversation with host Janeane Garofalo. While other participants in panels and talks struggled to either open up, be engaging or speak clearly, Garofalo and Bird.s camaraderie was obvious from the get go, which was probably down to the fact that Bird had directed her in Ratatouille. And while Bird spoke eloquently about his past and future works as a director, there was one revelatory slice of cinema history that he uttered which really stole the show -- and it involves both pee and the Disney animated classic, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. During the Q-and-a session that followed the foray into his work, Brad Bird was asked about his thoughts on the fact that Walt Disney wasn.t afraid to scare children, and how that has influenced his own career. And while »
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 latest trailer for the movie- which hits theatres next month – features the bulk of a single scene in which Clooney’s character Frank Walker finds his hideout under siege as Casey Newton (Robertson) finds herself trapped alongside the very man she was seeking answers from. A former boy-genius, Frank and curious teen Casey are off on an adventure to Tomorrowland to unlock the secrets that exist in this place within humankind’s collective memory.
Not much has been revealed about the film’s plot beyond that, though we have previously got a taste of whatTomorrowland has to offer. Directed by Brad Bird (Ratatouille), Tomorrowland co-stars Hugh Laurie, Kathryn Hahn, Tim McGraw, and Keegan-Michael Key.

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.

More than a year after the sequel was announced, “The Incredibles 2″ is finally chugging along.
“I’m just staring to write it, so we’ll see what happens,” he said.
Disney CEO Bob Iger told investors at the company’s shareholders meeting in March of 2014 that Pixar was planning a sequel to “The Incredibles,” as well as a third installment of its “Cars” franchise. “The Incredibles” was released in late 2004 and went on to gross $631.4 million worldwide.
Bird also provided the voice of costume designer Edna Mode in the toon. “I was exceedingly cheap and available,” he told NPR about the experience.

Brad Bird has one of the more anticipated films of the summer movie season in Tomorrowland and he's coming fresh off the success of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but it appears he may be ready to return to his animated roots. Speaking with NPR (via The Playlist), he tells this site, "I'm just staring to write The Incredibles 2, so we'll see what happens." As Pixar has continued to release sequels to their features including the Toy Story trilogy and Monsters University, the fact they haven't made a sequel to 2004's The Incredibles, which Bird wrote and directed, has always confused fans. After all, it's a superhero movie and superhero movies are not made to simply be one film. Bird's first animated feature was The Iron Giant back in 1999 and his last one was 2007's Ratatouille so should Incredibles 2 come to fruition it would most likely come at least »

Last week, I joined a group of journalists at Pixar in Emeryville, where we were shown the first hour of "Inside Out," this summer's new Pixar film. You can get a look at some of what we did in this gallery, and you can see some concept art for the film embedded below. The last interview of my day was with Jonas Rivera, who produced “Inside Out.” Rivera started at Pixar as an intern, making him pretty much the walking incarnation of a success story at the studio. We’d spoken earlier in the day as part of a round-table along with director Pete Docter, but this was my chance to speak to Rivera one-on-one. Drew McWeeny: I said this when you were in the room earlier: I feel like each Pixar director at this point has a signature and has something that they bring to the table that makes their films different. »

Tomorrowland is being directed by Brad Bird from a screenplay he wrote with Damon Lindelof. Bird worked on the likes of Ratatouille and Lindelof was a creator and writer on Lost. The movie stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, […] »

Joe Carnahan ("Stretch," "The Grey") is revving up the long dormant "Motorcade" for DreamWorks. At one time eyed by Tom Cruise, and a few years ago slated to star Ryan Reynolds, with a script from Billy Ray (indeed, his is the most recent draft), the thriller has a bunch of terrorists attacking the President's motorcade during a trip to Los Angeles. Four-wheel Drive Down! We'll see if Carnahan will finally be the guy to get this movie off the ground. [Variety] John Lasseter won't be going it alone with "Toy Story 4." Pixar veteran Josh Cooley, who has credits on "The Incredibles," "Cars," "Ratatouille," and "Up," has graduated to the co-director's chair on the sequel. There's no word yet on plot details, except that it will be a "romantic comedy" and not tied to the original trilogy. [via Empire] "Mama" director Andy Muschietti will be behind the the big screen adaptation of »

"What would happen if all the geniuses actually decided to change the world?" If the most recent trailer for Tomorrowland was still a little too mysterious to convince you to see the movie, then this new trailer from Japan should do the trick. It's comprised almost entirely of footage not seen in the latest Us trailer, explaining much more of the story, including who gives Britt Robertson the pin we've seen in the trailers, and some talk from Kathryn Hahn and Keegan-Michael Key about Disney's actual Tomorrowland and how the geniuses and inventors in the theme park's attraction tie in to this fantasy, future world. If you're already convinced to see this movie, I wouldn't watch this trailer though, so it's entirely up to you. Watch? Here's the Japanese trailer for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland (via Film Divider): You can still watch the latest Us trailer for Tomorrowland right here. »

We already know that John Lasseter will helm Toy Story 4, and now it's been announced long-time Pixar employee Josh Cooley will co-direct the film with Lasseter. Cooley first got his start with the company as an intern on Cars, and has worked on several other Pixar projects, including Ratatouille and Up. He was also the head of story on the upcoming Pixar film Inside Out, and directed a short that will be on the Blu-ray for the animated movie. Josh Cooley on being tapped to »

Though it floated in the rumoursphere in the years since Toy Story 3 effectively appeared to wrap up the story of Woody, Buzz and the rest of the playroom pals (aside from their appearances in shorts and TV specials), a fourth Toy Story film was officially announced last November. With a 2017 release date on the books, John Lasseter has picked Pixar veteran Josh Cooley as his co-director. Cooley has been with the company since legendary story man Joe Ranft hired him as an intern on Cars. Since then, he’s worked his way up through films such as Ratatouille, Brave and Up to become head of story on the company’s forthcoming release, Inside Out. And he’s also earned his director’s stripes making shorts, including one set within the world of Pete Docter’s film, which will be on the Inside Out Blu-ray. “To be co-director on Toy Story 4 with John, »
