'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 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com 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. https://t.co/i4J5X6tfhi

To promote Inside Out, Pixar is calling in the big guns — namely, its own catalog. In a new teaser trailer for the 2015 film — directed by Pete Docter and set inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley — the studio relives the highs and lows of A Bug's Life, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc., Up, Wall-e, Cars, Brave, Ratatouille and the Toy Story trilogy, only to ask, "Ever wonder where all those emotions really live?"

First ‘Inside Out’ Trailer is a Pixar Emotion Clip Reel

2 October 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

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? The tease plays out like a Pixar clip reel, showing off the many emotions we’ve felt over the years for movies like Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story, Up and the emotional powerhouse that was Wall-e. 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. Remember all the wonders of Pixar before they introduce their alien-like new characters. Inside Out begins playing with your emotions June 19, 2015.

Cool Stuff: U-Command Wall-e Remote Control Toy

30 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

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

11 September 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

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. »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »
