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?" The teaser then introduces the upcoming film's central characters: Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust

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.

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. »

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

Pixar Veteran is Co-Directing 'Finding Dory' with Andrew Stanton

11 June 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Sadly, due to the delay of The Good Dinosaur, we won't be seeing Pixar Animation's sequel Finding Dory until the summer of 2016. The original film's director Andrew Stanton will get some help this time though. Pixar Planet (via SlashFilm) noticed a Twitter update from Stanton which named Angus MacLane as his co-director whilst posting an amusing Lego creation commemorating Iron Man. MacLane isn't new Pixar blood as he was at the helm of the Halloween animated short "Toy Story of Terror." Stanton doesn't specifically mention Finding Dory, but it's the only film he's working on at this time, so it just makes sense. MacLane hasn't just directed the aforementioned Pixar shorts though as he's been involved in some capacity on all of their films since A Bug's Life, right up through Toy Story 3. And yes, that includes Stanton's turns as director on Finding Nemo and Wall-e. Other shorts that »

John Carter Sequel Logos: Director Andrew Stanton Teases What Could Have Been

7 June 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Studios launch potential franchise-starters every year in the hopes of spawning numerous sequels, spinoffs, and of course, plenty of merchandise.  More often than not, these things fail to take off, but the ones that don't and are actually good tend to sting.  An adaptation of author Edgar Rice Burroughs’ fantasy series John Carter of Mars had been in development for a very, very long time before Wall-e director Andrew Stanton finally brought the film to fruition, and while Stanton crafted a grand adventure movie that wholly transported audiences to its vast world, the box office numbers just weren’t strong enough to warrant follow-ups. In the event that John Carter did take off, Stanton had big plans for the series, and the filmmaker recently took to Twitter to share the title treatments for the sequels Gods of Mars and Warlord of Mars.  More after the jump. Though John Carter was »

'John Carter' Director Reveals Cancelled Plans for Two Sequels

7 June 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney had high hopes for the sci-fi adventure John Carter. Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic A Princess of Mars, the studio couldn't decide on a title, originally calling it John Carter of Mars before it became something much more generic. The movie opened on March 8, earning a decent enough $30 million over the weekend. But then it went onto only generate $73 million domestically against a $250 million budget, becoming one of the biggest bombs in the studio's history. Worldwide, it would eventually take in $284.1 million, but its poor showing in the states spelled doom for the franchise.

Some blamed the title and the marketing. Some blamed director Andrew Stanton, making his first live-action movie after finding success at Pixar with Finding Nemo and Wall-e. Many fans don't blame the movie itself, a wild and rollicking old fashion space opera that has gained a strong following since it took a nosedive at the box office. »

Review: David Newman Conducts The New York Philharmonic's Tribute To The Pixar Films

2 May 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

There are precious few things in life that reach the status of absolute perfection. Off-hand I can think of three:

1. A top notch Cuban cigar.

2. A wee-small hours meal in a New Jersey White Castle.

3. Any performance by the New York Philharmonic.

Last night, I had the opportunity to cover the latter for Cinema Retro, as the Philharmonic, under the direction of the esteemed conductor David Newman, presented a magnificent tribute to the music of the Pixar animated film classics. The event took place at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City and was the latest production in the legendary orchestra's tie-ins to major motion pictures. Last year, I reported on the Philharmonic's similar celebration of the films of Alfred Hitchcock. (Click here for coverage)  However, the Pixar event was even more impressive. My one gripe with the Hitchcock event was that the film »

Easter TV Movie Guide: Monday, April 21 - Harry Potter, The Inbetweeners

How the Grinch Stole Christmas - 11am, Film4

Ron Howard directs a typically over-the-top Jim Carrey as the cult children's favourite Grinch from the Dr Seuss story, as the over-sized hairy green bean prepares to ruin Christmas with wacky stunts and madcap antics.

Gone with the Wind - 2pm, 5Usa

It might have been the most expensive movie in 1939, and the most financially successful, and four hours long, but for all its records, this epic Civil War drama has a compelling narrative and romance between Clark Gable's Rhett Butler and Vivien Leigh's Scarlett O'Hara.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - 3pm, ITV

After Alfonso Cuarón came on board for the third instalment, the Harry Potter films went darker and stepped up a notch, becoming thrilling fantasy adventures, rather than just children's stories set in a boarding school.

Wall-e - 7.30pm, BBC Three
