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. »

26 June 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has invited 271 individuals to become members, with the list reflecting the org’s determination to bring more diversity to its ranks.

Every year, the list of invitations includes several recent Oscar nominees.

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. »

Andrew Stanton's John Carter Had Planned Sequels, Here Are The Logos And Titles

7 June 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Many people did not enjoy Andrew Stanton's (Finding Nemo, Wall-e) motion picture adaptation of John Carter, the Warlord of Mars. I was one of the few who did enjoy it, and would be open to a sequel. Stanton has released the title cards for some originally planned sequels, which you can see below! Could have been cool.

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

21 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

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

Here's the Wonderful Storytellers Ad by Google That Makes Us Smile

2 March 2014 9:47 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"That's what's so special about stories - they're not predictable." During the Oscars show on ABC, Google aired a commercial they call "We're All Storytellers", a wonderful 60-second spot build mainly around a part of the speech Pixar filmmaker Andrew Stanton (who won Oscars for Wall-e and Finding Nemo) gave in a Ted Talk in 2012. I will fully admit that the TV spot made me tear up, just because it's so beautifully put together, and I don't care that it's a bit cheesy or a bit prophetic, I love it, and I admire what it's saying. Google knows how to make stellar ads built around stories, and here they show they know the dynamics of great storytelling. A perfect ad for the Oscars, and worth a highlight of its own. See the full Google ad below. "We all love stories. We're born for them," says filmmaker Andrew Stanton (of Finding Nemo, »

The Fearlessness of Pixar’s ‘Ratatouille’

13 February 2014 9:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Good things might happen to those who wait, but the Disney/Pixar masterpiece Ratatouille tells us great things only happen to those who act fearlessly.

“Anyone can cook,” is the quote most viewers leave the film with, and director Brad Bird lets the themes represented by this philosophy—nothing is impossible, anyone and everyone is capable of reinvention—run wild throughout the picture. But there’s another quote, one that comes very early in Ratatouille, that sums up both what the film is about and the true breadth of Bird’s accomplishment. After all, this is a film about a rat who tries and sort of succeeds in becoming a gourmet Parisian chef, and his journey is completely, objectively believable.

Here  are the words of our hero’s idol, the late chef Auguste Gusteau: “You must be imaginative, strong-hearted. You must try things that may not work, and you must »

Will ‘Frozen’ Continue the Best Original Song Success of Animated Films?

5 February 2014 10:08 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Terence Johnson

Managing Editor

One of the bright spots this past film year was the success of Disney’s Frozen. On the strength of it’s more modern princesses and an infectious score, the film set box office records and has garnered two Oscar nominations, Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “Let It Go”, its infectious hit. In honor of Frozen’s nomination, we figured it was time to take a look at the history of animated movies in Original Song.

The history of animated films picking up nominations and wins in Best Original Song is a tale as old as time (see what I did there?). Since the 1930s, animated films have won this award 13 times and over 50 nominations, which you can see below. This is an even greater feat when you think about the consideration that animated films get when lists of musicals are made (they »

28 Days of Disney Animation: ‘Toy Story,’ Technology, and The Power of Nostalgia

2 February 2014 9:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The opening and closing images in the Toy Story trilogy are one and the same: a picture-perfect blue sky with a couple of carefully placed, nonthreatening fluffy clouds in the middle. While both are computer-generated facsimiles, the former is a facsimile of a facsimile: the comforting wallpaper in the bedroom of a little boy named Andy Davis. The latter is closer to the real thing, greeting the teenage Andy as he drives off to college and out of the lives of the toys with whom he populated his imagination for over a decade. As the series opens, the 6-year old Andy, a suburban Christopher Robin of sorts, proves in the confines of his tiny room, overstuffed with plush animals, board games, action figures, and other toys, that his world of make-believe is limitless. As the series closes, Andy ventures into the known unknown of the real world, secretly wished an »

Is Pixar Working on a 'Star Wars' Movie?

23 January 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This fall, "Big Hero 6," the first Walt Disney Feature Animation project based on a Marvel property (in this case a little know, Japanese-inspired tale of robots and fan boys), will be unleashed worldwide and mark the first synergistic, feature film crossover between Disney's Marvel property and one of its key animated lines. According to a report on Latio Review, which should be taken with the biggest grain of salt you can find, that kind of mix is about to happen again, with Pixar reportedly taking on a "Star Wars" feature.

That's about all the post suggests, without implying a timeline or any of the creative principles that would be involved in this project, which seems to lessen its validity by a few parsecs. But the possibility is certainly tantalizing, and, as "Wall-e" showed us, the fabled animation studio can do space really, really well.

The Pixar line-up has been more or less solidified through 2018, too, »

Pixar Joining Star Wars Universe

22 January 2014 11:42 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It was only a matter of time before Disney’s golden child animation acquisition was brought into the company franchise game. John Lasseter doubling his time at Disney Animation is a good cog in the machine, but there comes an opportunity to mix two potentially profitable brands together and see if the success can exponentially multiply. Or that must be the thinking at Disney, because we’ve heard that Pixar has been given their own Star Wars movie.

Once the canon-purge is over and Episode VII is in production, there will be a whole universe of Star Wars related content to play in. We’ve heard about TV shows,new comics tie-ins (Marvel, of course), spin-off movies for particular characters and now, a Pixar film.

At this point, no idea what the size or shape of this film will be and given the long-view storytelling production model that is part of the Pixar brand, »
