Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (Mu). But during his first semester at Mu, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right. Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart, Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and features music from Rock and Roll Hall »

The Lost creator and director of the irritatingly gappy Star Trek films knows a thing or two about scriptural fudges. Let's pray he doesn't put another universe at risk with his breakneck pacing
Spoiler warning: read if you've seen Star Trek: Into Darkness
When Jj Abrams was announced earlier this year as the surprise director of the new Star Wars film following Disney's $4bn buyout of George Lucas's gently disintegrating space opera empire in October, there were few dissenting voices to be heard. Here was a director who had taken rival sci-fi film series Star Trek and reinvigorated the whole affair with some much-needed razzmatazz, in the process transforming a saga that had been a niche concern for decades into a must-see proposition for anyone remotely interested in big-budget spectacle-heavy film-making. This was after turning round the Mission: Impossible series following John Woo's dumb second instalment with »

Pixar has been quite dependable when it comes to having yearly feature releases. The studio has put out one film a year since 2006, a stretch that has included movies like Cars, Ratatouille, Wall-e, Up, Toy Story 3, Cars 2, and Brave, and this year will be no different.

Retailers are buzzing over Pinterest’s ability to boost sales for their businesses. But Hollywood’s remained mostly silent about its potential to fill movie theater seats. For now.
As studios step up their social media activity, movie marketers are considering ways to turn posters or the promotional stills of their films that appear on online pinboards into ticket sales.
Nearly every major distributor in Hollywood is experimenting internally with ways to court Pinterest’s core users: white college-educated women between the ages of 18-49 who live in rural areas and make $75,000 a year. It’s a demo that’s become tougher to attract, with summer tentpoles consisting of mostly of genre-heavy fare aimed at younger men.

The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers is reportedly in talks for an unknown role in the highly-anticipated sequel Star Wars: Episode VII. If a deal is made, the actor will reunite with his Mission: Impossible III director J.J. Abrams.
Earlier this month, we reported that production will begin in early 2014, with shooting to take place in the U.K.
Now that Star Trek Into Darkness has finally been released in theaters, director J.J. Abrams is free to focus the majority of his time on that other beloved franchise that he’s reviving: Star Wars. While plot details have been (and will be) kept under firm wraps for quite some time, we do know that Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) is hard at work on the screenplay, and he was even seen with Abrams in London at the Into Darkness premiere, so it’s clear that the two are knee-deep in development on Episode VII. With production looking to get underway in London in early 2014, Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy are likely starting to think about casting. A recent report has now surfaced that claims Abrams has already zeroed in on one actor for the film: Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Hit the jump for more. The folks over at Latino Review »

Disney is working to produce a film that will continue the story of where 1983′s Episode VI: Return of the Jedi left off. Production on the seventh film in the series will start next year in the UK. Episode VII is expected to hit theaters in 2015.
My right hand man El Mayimbe recently heard that a young man who has only been in one major franchise movie (in a co-starring role) was in talks to star in the new Star Wars film.
Now, my source has told me more information…
This is a name that has been thrown around a lot, especially since he has a relationship with J.J. Abrams. He appeared in Mission Impossible: III, directed by Abrams.
Sounds like he already has it. »

We knew it would be big, but did anyone really think it would be this big? After just 25 days on release, Marvel's Iron Man 3 has become the first film of 2013 to cross $1 billion at the global box office, and only the 16th film in history to achieve that feat.
As of today the Shane Black-directed solo sequel is now the fourth biggest comic book movie of all time behind The Avengers ($1.511 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084 billion) and The Dark Knight ($1.004 billion). It looks certain to surpass both Dark Knight films and go on to crack the all time top ten, with tenth place currently occupied by Pixar's Toy Story 3 on $1.063 billion, and could even end up occupying a spot in the top five.

Iron Man 3 - Pre-Viz Animatic of the Mansion Attack
"I met with Shane Black very early during pre-production to discuss this scene. Even in the early stages, the sequence seemed gargantuan. So much needed to happen in a relatively short amount of time, and I knew that this would be my most challenging animatic yet. The beauty of the way Shane works is that he's not only a brilliant storyteller but he's very open to other ideas, and during my time »

We have today learned that Iron Man 3 has officially grossed over $1 billion worldwide.
