Yes, Disney’s Planes is like Cars in the sky.
The animated movie was originally planned to debut on DVD and Blu-ray, but flew to theaters first instead.
Planes tells the story a crop duster, appropriately named Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook, Answers to Nothing), who dreams of flying in the greatest air race ever. However, he has two problems: He’s not built for speed and he’s afraid of heights. It’s his friends to the rescue as Dusty finds his courage.
The PG-rated family film’s voice cast also includes Stacy Keach (End of the Road), Brad Garrett (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone), Teri Hatcher (Coraline), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (TV’s Veep), John Cleese (Winnie the Pooh), Cedric the Entertainer (Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted), Anthony Edwards (Flipped) and Val Kilmer »
Sometimes it's pretty fun to live vicariously through the characters we see on the big screen, especially when those characters are young, pretty, spoiled, and living it up in the L.A. party scene, like the privileged socialite wannabes in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring."
Newcomer Katie Chang stars as Rebecca, the group's ringleader/chief sociopath who's obsessed with Lindsay Lohan. Israel Broussard ("Flipped") is her doting, anxiety-ridden Bff Marc, while Emma Watson ("Harry Potter"), Taissa Farmiga ("American Horror Story") and Claire Julien round out the posse.
The pretty young things embark on a series of incredibly brazen home robberies. They target celebs whose closets they want to raid, including Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Audrina Patridge and Megan Fox, and use online gossip rags to figure out who's going to be out of town, and when.
The most remarkable thing about this stylized tale is that it's based on a true story. »

You’ll definitely remember Anthony Edwards from ER not too long ago, and now he’s set to take on the world of television again with ‘Zero Hour‘. In the show, he returns – along with a dynamic ensemble cast – to this dramatic adventure thriller, as Hank Galliston, a man who’s questioning everything and everyone he ever believed in – including himself. If you’re a fan of Prison Break then you’re sure to want to check this out as Paul Scheuring has created and written this brand-new series.
So far, only the first three episodes have aired in America. The show is airing over the summer so the UK is currently ahead of America and you can find it here: www.itunes.co.uk/tv/zerohour

I was a big fan of ABC‘s Zero Hour when I previewed the pilot last summer, and was disappointed that they were holding it until midseason. When they finally did air it, they had made a few changes with a few scenes, but it was still the cool Indiana Jones-feeling, Nazi hating, twisty fun mysterious show I remembered, complete with creepy baby.
Of course I was horribly disappointed when ABC canceled the series after airing just three episodes, but over-the-moon happy when they announced that they would air all 13 episodes this summer.
Well that happy day is now finally nearly upon us, as Zero Hour returns Saturday at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere. But… it isn’t the pilot. In fact, they are picking up where they left off, and will be airing episodes four and five on Saturday. If you didn’t see the first three episodes when »

In a summer movie season packed with superheroic men, check out this week’s "Sleeper to See" for a refreshingly subversive comedy about some amusingly antiheroic young women. The Movie: The Bling Ring The Director: Oscar-winning writer-director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides) The Cast: Emma Watson (Harry Potter series, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Leslie Mann (This Is 40), Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story), Israel Broussard (Flipped) and newcomer Katie Chang. The Story: The Bling Ring is loosely based on the true story of a group of Los Angeles teenagers who made international headlines after breaking into the homes and stealing from such celebrities as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom. Why You Should...

Israel Broussard already has a handful of titles to his name including a role in Rob Reiner’s “Flipped,” but “The Bling Ring” marks his first foray into the world of high-profile productions and also offers up a performance that suggests he’s an up-and-comer worth keeping an eye on. The film tells the true story of the Bling Ring, a group of teens from California who were so celeb obsessed, they decided to just waltz into Paris Hilton’s home while she was out of town. It all starts off as an innocent thrill, but ultimately turns into a $3 million crime spree involving a number of celebrities, stolen high-end clothing, and [ Read More ]

We were so disappointed that Zero Hour wasn’t given more time to gain an audience, but at least were pleased when ABC announced that the entire first season would air this summer, including the first three episodes that aired in the winter.
Happily, ABC has now paired those episodes with unaired episodes from another gone-too-soon show from earlier this season, 666 Park Avenue, according to Deadline. As you know from the SciFiMafia.com Spring and Summer Primetime TV Schedule and the SciFiMafia.com Calendar, Zero Hour premieres Saturday, June 15 at 8/7c. 666 Park Avenue will join Zero Hour on June 22, following it at 9/8c and continuing weekly for three more weeks.
Excellent news, I’m So looking forward to summer Saturdays, these were great shows; thanks to ABC for airing the rest of the episodes.

Are you one of the many complaining about the lack of original stories being made into movies? Well, then you might appreciate the upcoming British offering Our Robot Overlords, a coming-of-age tale set in the midst of a dramatic battle between man and machine. Co-written and directed by Jon Wright, who has previously helmed the alien invasion comedy Grabbers and the horror-comedy Tormented, this sci-fi adventure centers on a teen boy who with the help of his peers goes in search of his long lost father as a war between mankind and robots rages around them. But the teen boy is encouraged to join the fray when he uncovers the secret to bringing these brawling bots down! THR reports Wright has landed Aussie up-and-comer Callan McAuliffe to front the film as its teen protagonist. McAuliffe has appeared in a couple of American productions, including Rob Reiner's 2010 romance Flipped, DreamWorks' »
He’s dealt with teenage romance in Flipped, been friends with an alien in I Am Number Four and will shortly be seen as the younger Gatsby in Pacific Rim The Great Gatsby. But can Callan McAuliffe fight Our Robot Overlords? He’ll have to, because he’s just snagged the lead in the movie.Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley are already aboard the film, which will find the Earth under the control of robots three years after an invasion. Everyone is confined to their homes or controlled by an implant, but McAuliffe and his mates figure a way around theirs and head off in search of his long-lost father.But even as he seeks to reunite his family, he begins to realise that he’s got a much more important part to play in overcoming the techno threat.Grabbers' Jon Wright is directing the movie, starting next month in Ireland, »
Some rather interesting new materials from writer/director Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film The Bling Ring have made their way online. Most notable is the first clip from the film, which is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who robbed the homes of the rich and famous between October 2008 and August 2009, coming away with over $3 million worth of loot from the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan. The clip shows the group of youngsters raiding a rather ridiculous “closet” that presumably belongs to one of the aforementioned celebrities, and we see Emma Watson’s character trying out a stripper pole in the process. I’m really interested to see Coppola’s angle on this celeb-obsessed story, and it’s looking like The Bling Ring might make a nice double feature with Harmony Korine’s culture portrait Spring Breakers.

A number of new images from writer/director Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film The Bling Ring have landed online. The pic marks Coppola’s follow-up to her 2010 film Somewhere and is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who robbed the homes of the rich and famous between October 2008 and August 2009, coming away with over $3 million worth of loot from the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan. It’s most definitely an interesting choice of topic for the Lost in Translation filmmaker, but the pic’s first trailer and these new images promise a fascinating look into the celebrity-obsessed, material-based culture that spurred the film’s real-life events in the first place. The new images also give us another look at Emma Watson’s rather interesting character transformation. Hit the jump to view the images. The film also stars Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story), Israel Broussard (Flipped), Katie Chang, »

This is terrific news for all who join me in bemoaning the far-too-soon cancellation of supernatural Nazi clock creepy baby puzzler Zero Hour. We were told that the remainder of the episodes would air, and now, happily, that schedule has been set. The news was somewhat giddily tweeted by the Zero Hour writers themselves, or at least whomever has their Twitter password:
Airing update! ABC’s showing all 13 eps of Zero Hour starting Sat. June 15th at 8pm! Set your DVR’s and clear your summer schedules! Whohoo!
— ZeroHourWriters (@ZHWriters) March 27, 2013
That is to say Sat’s @ 8Pm on ABC Starting on 6/15 not all 13 eps on 6/15…you knew that. Nevermind. Is this thing on? Did you hear some…
— ZeroHourWriters (@ZHWriters) March 27, 2013
Okay, so episode 1 airs on Saturday, June 15 at 8/7c *noting*. Back in March when the cancellation news became public, the writers posted this almost more exciting news:

Teri Hatcher (the voice of the terrifying Other Mother in Coraline), Cedric the Entertainer (the voice of Maurice in the Madagascar movies) and football play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger are some of the voices boarding Planes, the Disney Animation spinoff to Cars.
Here is the entire cast joining Dane Cook, who provides the voice of lead plane, Dusty, who is pursuing his dream of competing as a high-flying air racer despite his fear of heights.

The teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola‘s latest drama The Bling Ring, which casts Emma Watson as a no good party girl, hit the web. The film is based on the Vanity Fair true story ‘The Suspects Wore Louboutins’ of a group of teenagers also known as the ‘Hollywood Hills Burglars’ who robbed some celebrities homes and stole up to $3 million dollars worth of items between October 2008 and August 2009. The pic also stars Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story), Israel Broussard (Flipped), Katie Chang, Claire Julien, Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale and Paris Hilton (one of the celebrity victims of robbery).

Emma Watson has left her days playing Hermione Granger behind – following her role as a free-spirited teen in last year’s acclaimed drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower - with a more troubling and darker exploration of adolescence, which is releasing under the title The Bling Ring.
This inspired-by-true-events tale is about fame-obsessed teenagers who (through the magic of the Internet) track down where local celebrities live, in order to rob them blind and live the good life. It comes from Oscar-winning writer-director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) and was funded by Megan Ellison through A24, which also backed this month’s similar project about destructive and self-centered young people (ie. filmmaker Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers).

Writer/director Sofia Coppola's film is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who robbed the homes of the rich and famous between October 2008 and August 2009, coming away with over $3 million worth of loot from the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan.

With his last few efforts such as Flipped and the Morgan Freeman-led drama The Magic of Belle Isle going widely unnoticed, Rob Reiner is looking for another project, and one that will hopefully put him back on the map. According to Showbiz 411, the Stand By Me director looks like he may have found it. First announced last fall, Michael [...] »

Tonight is the night we finally get to officially welcome Zero Hour into our homes. Whether you were lucky like me and got a very early sneak peek, or if you checked out the preview that ABC has made available online, or if tonight will be your first view, make sure to check out tonight’s season premiere. There are plenty of “Ooo!” moments, a creepy Nazi conspiracy theory, and Anthony Edwards, so definitely give this one a try.
Here’s one more quick reminder, that includes some intriguing new footage:

We very much approve of the new-ish network practice of posting a series premiere online before the premiere, especially for good intrigue/supernatural/serial/DaVinci Code-like shows like Zero Hour. Plus Nazis, Anthony Edwards, and old clocks! I was able to check it out last summer and loved it, and hope you’ll love it too. Watch it, make sure to watch it through the very end (trust me), and talk it up with your friends. We need good shows like this to do well.
First, a very cool poster and a reminder of what the show’s about:

When the sudden news of Snakes on a Plane director David R. Ellis passing away surfaced last month, that left the adaptation of he Japanese anime movie Kite, starring Samuel L. Jackson, in limbo. The project was gearing up to start production when Ellis passed away, and it was unclear what would happen. Now a press release (found via The Film Stage) has revealed that South African director Ralph Ziman (Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema) will take over the project. In addition, Maleficent and Underworld: Awakening star India Eisley and The Great Gatsby and Flipped star Callan McAuliffe have both joined the cast. More below! The story doesn't depart too much from the original anime as it follows a young woman (to be played by India Eisley) living in a failed state, post-financial collapse, where the corrupt security force profits on the trafficking of young women. Her father, a police officer, »
