I'm not the biggest gambler. Sure, I do it for fun every now and then when I'm passing through Vegas, and I always seem to come out ahead, but I don't want to push my look, so I gamble sparingly. It's always fun when I do, though, and I love the adrenaline rush!
There have been some great scenes that revolve around gambling. I thought it'd be fun to point out awesome gaming scenes from ten different films. Not all of the films I pulled these scenes from revolve around gambling. This is just a collection of scenes that I've enjoyed watching over the years.
Look over the list and let us know what some of your favorite movie gambling scenes are!

If I asked you what job you had four years ago, you could probably tell me. Hell, you could probably tell me who you were dating/ married to, what kind of dog you had and what kind of car you drove too. These basic facts are burned into your brain, but what about the most important things? What about all the movies you saw and all the ones that obsessively advertised at you but didn.t earn your business? Could you remember all of them? Luckily, you don.t need to speculate. The heroes here at Cinema Blend have devised a quiz to help you figure out just how many movies you remember from four years ago. As a reminder, four years ago was 2010, a perfectly passable twelve month chunk that gave us such favorites as Toy Story 3, Black Swan, The King.s Speech, The Social Network and my »
If you’re a hard-core Pixar fan, then you no doubt realize the animation studio loves to put little Easter eggs into each and every one of its movies. These hidden nods to earlier films delight those who catch them, even if they’re not integral to the stories being told. Pixar has been doing this for years, but it’s only now that it has started chronicling them for the public. This new video, starring Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, reveals some of the hidden delights from movies like Up, Cars and Ratatouille. It’s by no means all inclusive – which is a minor disappointment – but maybe the studio will make more of these cool little videos if fans like this one. Things kick off with the Luxo Jr. ball, then move on to grape soda...

Even though we're right around the perfect time for real easter eggs, those aren't the kind we're talking about. In this case, we're talking about hidden references to other films within the filmography of Pixar Animation.

It's not all-inclusive, but it's cool. Watch it! Here's the video from Pixar, telling fans to join in on the easter egg hunt (via Movies.com): There's tons more references between Pixar films that you can notice by rewatching the films. Sometimes, you don't even know »

The soundtrack to Disney's Frozen has spent a tenth non-consecutive week atop the Billboard 200 chart.
The accompanying album becomes one of only 11 albums to have topped the Us chart for ten weeks or longer, and it has now equalled The Lion King's record for an animated film.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, the Frozen Ost sold 133,000 copies in the week ending April 13, bringing its total sales to 2.1 million.
Last month, Frozen became the highest-grossing animated film of all time.
The Disney movie recently reached $1.072 billion at the worldwide box office, beating the previous record-holder Toy Story 3 ($1,063bn).
Thanks to the recent release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we've spent the last few weeks talking about how good Marvel Studios is as sprinkling little Easter Eggs into their films. But let's not forget: Pixar has been doing similar brilliant work in the same regard for the last 19 years - a.k.a. since they began making feature films. Die hard fans of the studio's animated movies have spent years studying their favorite titles and analyzing them frame by frame, but now Pixar has released an official video highlighting a few of the best ones. Hosted by Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3 and the co-director of Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc. and Toy Story 2, the video puts the spotlight on some of the most clever little bonuses featured in Pixar movies. Not only does the Luxo Jr. ball appear in nearly every one of the studio's films, »
If you're as dedicated of a Pixar fan as we are, then you've been on the Easter Egg hunt they've sent us on for years now! If not, welcome to the search!
Not sure what we're talking about?
What if we told you that every Pixar movie is connected in both the tiniest yet biggest ways possible? Maybe you've noticed a character in one movie making an appearance in another? Or you've seen one item that looked so familiar, but you just couldn't think of where you saw it before!
Who better to explain what's going on than Toy Story 3 director and Pixar co-founder, John Lasseter. Watch as he explains all of the hidden Easter Eggs that have been spread throughout the Pixar Universe.
We know for a fact, however, that these aren't the only ones. There are still tons to be found, while others that haven't been mentioned. »

The J.J. Abrams “mystery box” approach to publicity has provoked a swirl of rumors around his next project, Star Wars: Episode VII. The more reports about the film surface, the less we seem to know for sure, but here are the basic facts so far: Abrams is directing a script by he and The Empire Strikes Back co-writer Lawrence Kasdan (from an earlier draft by Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt) and the original cast is returning for a story set 30 years after Return of the Jedi.
In order to deliver the film on time for its December 2015 release date, Abrams and company are thought to begin shooting in London in just a few weeks, with early reports on the shooting locations suggesting that a return to Tatooine is in the cards. A dizzying array of names are said ...

While Disney chairman Alan Horn remained mostly tight lipped during an interview at the Loyola Marymount School of Film and Television in Los Angeles, he did let it slip that “Star Wars Episode VII” has already begun shooting and has much of its cast.
“We have a lot of them, it’s not completely done yet,” Horn responded when asked about casting, noting it as the most difficult part of putting the highly anticipated film together.
As J.J. Abrams prefers to keep details under wraps for most of his films, Horn declined to reveal any names. Variety, however, learned in February that “Girls” actor Adam Driver is in talks to play the villain. Actors being considered for the lead role include Ed Speleers, John Boyega, Jesse Plemons, Matthew James Thomas and Ray Fisher.
“We’re actually shooting some of it now,” Horn said, despite previous comments that filming would start next month. »

Surprise, Star Wars fans — the next film in the franchise has already begun shooting, and casting is almost complete.
The announcements about Star Wars: Episode VII were made by Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn during a panel at Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television in Los Angeles on April 2. He also acknowledged that there had been problems with the script, but he’s confident in the version director J.J. Abrams and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan have worked on, which is based on a previous draft written by Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt.

Pixar must have known what it was doing when it scheduled Toy Story 3 for Fathers’ Day weekend 2010, over a decade after the release of Toy Story 2. For as much as kids were eager to catch up with Woody and Buzz, it was the fathers who inevitably stayed in their seats during the film’s closing credits, trying to compose themselves before their children noticed dad’s cheeks were wet. Adult conversations about the film that summer often began with, “Sooo… Did you cry?” or rather, “How hard did you cry?”
Toy Story 3 cracked a lot of adults’ armor, »

We've got a beautiful piece of Frozen fan art to share with you from Cghub artist sakimichan. We've posted some of this artist work before, and you can check it them out here.
It was also reported that the Frozen is now the highest grossing animated film of all time with a total of $1.072 billion worldwide. It takes the record spot previously held by Pixar's Toy Story 3. It also sits at number 10 as the biggest movie ever in worldwide grosses. That's right in between Warner Bros.’ The Dark Knight Rises (#9) and Disney’s own Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (#11). »

Despite our misgivings about Pixar moving farther into sequel territory rather than focusing on new and original ideas, we couldn’t help but get excited about the news that the animation studio is finally making a follow up to The Incredibles. Fans have been hoping (read: begging) for a sequel since the first film hit theaters in 2005, and director Brad Bird has always expressed interest in making one, as long as a great idea struck him.
Luckily for us, that idea must have struck because the film is now in active development. We still don’t know how far along that development may be, or when we can expect to see the finished product, but it’s exciting news nonetheless. We do know that Bird is currently working on the script, and though he’s not confirmed to direct, chances are good that he’ll be back. He’s currently »

Disney's 3D musical-comedy Frozen is officially the highest grossing animated film of all-time, climbing over the billion-dollar mark after a strong opening weekend in Japan. The Oscar-winning flick has now grossed $1.072 billion worldwide, which breaks down to $398 million domestically and $674 million internationally. To reach that jaw-dropping top spot, Frozen had to ice out some friendly competition – the 2010 Disney/Pixar film Toy Story 3, which previously grossed $1.063 billion.

It's official! After weeks of smashing one record after another, Disney's Frozen has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time! The musical about two sisters/princesses took the crown from Toy Story 3, bypassing its worldwide total of $1.06 billion with $1.07 billion. And that number will continue to rise as Frozen is still in theaters around the world in 2D, 3D, and Sing Along variants. Frozen broke its first record on its opening weekend, when it became the #1 all-time Thanksgiving debut with $67.4 million over the three-day weekend, but $93.6 mil over the five-day. That title was previously held by Toy Story 2, which boasted $57 million on its Thanksgiving release. Tackling two Toy Story titles is all the more impressive when you consider that it toppled two franchise movies with widely established and beloved characters. Yes, Frozen is very loosely based on "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen, but it's doubtful »
Well, it's official: "Frozen" is now the highest grossing animated film ever.
Over the weekend, following its strong release in Japan, Disney announced that the film had narrowly edged out "Toy Story 3" to become the highest grossing animated film in the history of the medium. It has made over a billion dollars worldwide, and has spawned countless annoying YouTube videos of teenagers singing their own uninspired renditions of "Let It Go."
What makes the success of "Frozen" so staggering is that, unlike "Toy Story 3," it wasn't a highly anticipated sequel. It was, instead, an adaptation of a brilliant but somewhat creaky Hans Christian Andersen story that was contemporized in amazing, ingenious ways. Filmmakers Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee knew that the Disney Princesses needed some fresh blood - not only did "Frozen" have two princesses, but the princesses were deeply flawed, human characters and the story itself was »
