17 December 2014 6:57 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Each year, the Library of Congress selects 25 films to be named to the National Film Registry, a proclamation of commitment to preserving the chosen pictures for all time. They can be big studio pictures or experimental short films, goofball comedies or poetic meditations on life. The National Film Registery "showcases the extraordinary diversity of America’s film heritage and the disparate strands making it so vibrant" and by preserving the films, the Library of Congress hopes to "a crucial element of American creativity, culture and history.” This year’s selections span the period 1913 to 2004 and include a number of films you’re familiar with. Unless you’ve never heard of "Saving Private Ryan," "The Big Lebowski," “Rosemary’s Baby” or "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Highlights from the list include the aforementioned film, Arthur Penn’s Western "Little Big Man," John Lasseter’s 1986 animated film, “Luxo Jr.," 1953’s “House of Wax, »

Trailer for Inside Out might just herald a new golden era at Pixar

11 December 2014 9:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After a couple of half-baked sequels, the creative juices seem to be flowing again at the Disney-owned animation studio, with an intriguing tale featuring human emotions as characters

Whether you suspect the golden age of Pixar has passed, or remain convinced the Disney-owned production company is still light years ahead of the competition, it’s hard to dispute that the studio has delivered ever more conceptually sophisticated material over its two-decade run.

The synopsis for Toy Story, which transformed the animation zeitgeist in 1995, can be summed up as “anthropomorphic toys have an adventure”, while 2003’s Finding Nemo can be pithily rendered as “talking fish searches the oceans for his missing son”. But try explaining the essential premise of 2006’s Up or 2008’s Wall-e to the uninitiated in just a few words. “Old man goes on an adventure in a flying house” doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of »

In Disney-Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

‘Asterix: The Mansions of The Gods’ Powers Up French B.O., Sells Worldwide

4 December 2014 4:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– “Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods” is proving French animation still has the mojo.

The 3D animated feature, which is based on Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo’s cult Belgian comicbooks, has grossed 6.2 million Euros ($7.4 million) from 935 000 admissions sold during its sneak premieres and first week in theaters.

Released on 696 screens by Snd on Nov. 26,  Louis Clichy and Alexandre Astier’s $46 million film surpassed the openings of such American blockbusters as “Frozen” and “Tangled.” It scored the fifth best bow for a French film this year, following the comedies “Les trois frères, le retour,” “Serial (Bad) Weddings” with Christian Clavier, Dany Boon’s “Supercondriaque”and Luc Besson’s actioner “Lucy” with Scarlett Johansson.

This early performance is a great feast in itself considering many French producers have given up on producing toons with budgets exceeding 15 million Euros ($18.5 million) due to the volatility of the French distribution market, the increasing »

‘Asterix: Mansions Of The Gods’ Animates French Box Office In Big Bow (Video)

3 December 2014 5:42 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Asterix films are traditionally big winners at the French box office, although the most recent ones have been live-action and seen some decrease in traction. The latest, Asterix: The Mansions Of The Gods, is a 3D animated adaptation of the comic books created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. Snd released the picture on November 26 on 696 screens with first-week grosses today coming in at a huge 6.2M euros ($7.64M) from nearly 780K admissions. The opening bests previous local performances of such animated hits as Frozen, Tangled, Monsters, Inc, and Cars. It was No. 1 at the weekend, topping the second frame of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and the fourth session for Interstellar. The first week puts it just behind Guardians Of The Galaxy and above Captain America: The Winter Soldier on the 2014 chart and makes it the 3rd biggest opening for a French animated film ever.

'Toy Story 4' Announced; John Lasseter To Direct

7 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

A fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise was announced on Thursday by Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger.

'Toy Story 4'

John Lasster, who directed the original Toy Story film in 1995 and its sequel, will be directing Toy Story 4. "John created Toy Story and directed the first two films, and it's great to have him back directing one of our most valuable properties," Iger said.

Lasseter revealed in a statement that the decision to make a fourth Toy Story film was made when he – along with Andrew Stanton (Wall-e) , Pete Doctor (Up) and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) – came up with a story worth another sequel. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Lasseter revealed that the film will pick up where Toy Story 3 ended and will be a love story.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” Lasseter said in the statement. »

'Toy Story 4' Is Coming in 2017

6 November 2014 8:16 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced that Toy Story 4 is coming in June of 2017. We don't know much about the movie at this point other than it will be directed by Pixar's own John Lasseter, whose directorial credits include Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Cars and Cars 2. Beyond that, it's anyone's guess as to how it'll fit into where the story was left off in 2010's Toy Story 3 and which characters will be returning. The story for Toy Story 4 was cooked up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton (Wall-e), Pete Docter (Up), and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3). It'll be written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (Celeste and Jesse Forever). Here's what Lasseter had to say about the project: “We love these characters so much; they...

Yes No Maybe So: Chappie

5 November 2014 6:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to play our favorite trailer watching game.

Is it safe to say that of the 47 films to have been nominated for Best Picture ever since the category's expansion, District 9 remains the oddest, with its sci-fi concept, low-tech execution and lack of big name recognition? Neill Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley followed that up with Elysium which very few of us have thought about since it came out. They’re re-teamed for Chappie which, well, I’ll just give you the synopsis:

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings - some good, some bad - and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there's one thing that makes »

Chappie Trailer Arrives

4 November 2014 9:17 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

First came the poster, and as inevitably as night follows day here comes the trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie (which sounds a bit rude when phrased that way). Prepare yourselves for the most instantly sympathetic robot since Wall-e, and scenes of robot trauma that may upset younger viewers, or really anyone who loves their smartphone and feels good about their microwave. brightcove.createExperiences();Chappie sees Dev Patel create a thinking, feeling robot. But even as he and his friends try to teach this newcomer how to act in the world, the rather innocent young being comes under threat from dark forces - led here by Hugh Jackman's Vincent. You can tell he's dodgy because he has hair that's perilously close to being a mullet. Just like you can tell Chappie's rather likeable because he has sort of rabbit ears. The film also stars Blomkamp regular Sharlto Copley as Chappie himself, »

‘Interstellar’ Looks to Join a Short List of Space-Related Films to Garner Best Picture Oscar Noms

31 October 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is hoping to join Guardians of the Galaxy, another space-related film, at the top of the box office after it opens Nov. 5 and could garner a best picture Oscar nomination. In the trailer, Matthew McConaughey‘s character says, “We used to look up in the sky and wonder at our place in the stars; now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt,” so one wonders how often the Academy looks skyward for best picture nominees and if voting members have set a precedent for space films to do well at the Oscars. Though many of the voting members came of age when President John F. Kennedy said we were going to put the first man on the moon, only six space-related films have been nominated for best picture: Gravity (2013), District 9 (2009), Avatar (2009), Apollo 13 (1995), The Right Stuff »

New ‘John Carter’ Movie Planned as Rights Revert to Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc.

21 October 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney may not have scored with an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “John Carter of Mars,” but the author’s estate still hopes his book series can become a film franchise.

The movie, TV and merchandise rights to “John Carter” have reverted back to Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., it announced this week, saying it will seek a new studio to continue the sci-fi adventure.

“’John Carter of Mars’ was the creative stimulus behind such movie classics as ‘Superman,’ ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Avatar,’” said James Sullos, president of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. “Edgar Rice Burroughs was the master of adventure and his literary works continue to enjoy a worldwide following. We will be seeking a new partner to help develop new adventures on film as chronicled in the 11 Mars novels Burroughs wrote. This adventure never stops.”

It stopped at Disney, however, when “John Carter,” produced for $250 million, flopped at the box »

Peter Sohn To Helm Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur

21 October 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having been hit with a director changeover and an impromptu delay, it’s fair to say that Pixar’s upcoming animation, The Good Dinosaur, has been through its fair share of production issues. Initially, Up co-director Bob Peterson was due to oversee the film, thereby making his full directorial debut, but the Pixar Brain Trust replaced him in the director chair, subsequently pushing the project from a 2014 release right back to November, 2015.

Now, though, the studio has formally announced that Peter Sohn will replace Peterson as director of The Good Dinosaur, and released a brief clip which sees Sohn visualize the animation’s protagonist, Arlo the apatosaurus.

Our director Peter Sohn can’t wait for you to meet Arlo! #TheGoodDinosaur releases in theaters November 2015.

Pixar’s Inside Out, coming from Up director Pete Docter in 2015, is all about emotion. In its first teaser trailer, it’s being called a “major emotion picture.” Get it?

Pixar is very good at pulling on those heartstrings. Now they’ll take us into the mind of a teenage girl, where as we all know, emotions can be intense. Watch the first trailer. Feel the emotion.

More than almost any Disney character in recent memory, everyone wants a Wall-e. He’s cute, he’s got personality, he’s helpful and he cleans up after you. What could be better than that? Unfortunately, we’ll never own an actual Wall-e because they don’t exist. He’s a figment of the imagination of director Andrew Stanton and hundreds […]

'Finding Dory' meets 'The Wire'? It could happen

Stringer Bell and Jimmy McNulty might be sharing the screen again, sort of. But instead of confronting each other on the mean streets of Baltimore, they’ll be taking to the sea.

Wire alums Idris Elba and Dominic West are reportedly lending their voices to Finding Dory, Disney and Pixar’s followup to Finding Nemo. West revealed the news in an interview with ShortList magazine this week.

“I saw Idris recently,” West said in the interview. “We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that.” Elba is also voicing the role of Shere Khan in Disney’s The Jungle Book, »

The 'Big Hero 6' Directors Reveal the Story Behind the Wild New Trailer (Exclusive)

15 July 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Think that Iron Man is getting a little paunchy for the robotic costume? Worried about the crows-feet peeking out from behind Captain America's mask? Well, get ready for some fresh blood, as the next generation of superhero is preparing to take to the big screen this fall.

That's when Walt Disney Animation Studios, coming off of the record-breaking success of "Frozen," unleashes "Big Hero 6," a film based on a cult Marvel property (by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau). And we've got the brand new trailer, as well as an exclusive interview with filmmakers Chris Williams (who helmed "Bolt") and Don Hall (the filmmaker behind 2011's criminally underrated "Winnie the Pooh").

In the trailer, we get a glimpse of the relationship between Hiro (Ryan Potter), a teenage genius who, along with his inflatable robot Baymax (Scott Adsit from "30 Rock"), set out to create a new team of fresh-faced heroes. »
