Morgan,” September 2

Stepping out of your father’s shadow is never easy when said father is beloved and successful, but it’s got to be especially difficult when it’s Ridley Scott. Sitting in the director’s chair for his very first feature, Luke Scott looks to bring the kind of white-knuckle tension and mysterious head games to the sci-fi genre as his father has done time and time again. »

Pete's Dragon review

16 August 2016 2:59 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Published Date  Wednesday, August 17, 2016 - 05:54

Disney is on a roll this year - following the billion dollar box office success of Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, their second dip into their back catalogue this year is another belter. Loosely based on the 1977 film of the same name, Pete's Dragon is more independent from its inspiration than any remake for many a year.

There are those who look back fondly on the original, a live action/cel animation hybrid in which Mickey Rooney and Jim Dale gurned at a delightful cartoon dragon, but it's hard to say that it stands up to the likes of similarly designed films like Mary Poppins and Bedknobs & Broomsticks. Nearly four decades on, the most unlikely of directors, David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) has taken a trifle and stirred up a moving and majestic remake, transplanting the action from the 1900s »

Great Job, Internet!: Celebrate Bambi’s 74th anniversary with this look back at its creation

15 August 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Bambi—the iconic Disney animated film responsible for destroying childhood innocence everywhere—celebrated its 74th anniversary on Saturday. Drew Taylor of the website Oh My Disney dug into the production history of the 1942 classic. The film was the fifth feature released by Disney, and Taylor calls it the “synthesis” of the films that came before it: “[It utilizes] the formalism of Pinocchio and Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, the naturalism of Dumbo, and the gentle experimentalism of Fantasia.”

Based on a 1923 book by Viennese author Felix Salten called Bambi: A Life In The Woods, the Disney animators struggled to figure out how to tell a more amorphous story without a traditional fairy tale structure. The Bambi team wound up sequestered in another building while animators worked on Fantasia, Alice In Wonderland, and Peter Pan in the main studio. And a lengthy production period gave the team time ...

Trends and the Lack of Originality in Hollywood

13 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Eric Bay-Andersen on trends and the lack of originality in Hollywood…

At the beginning of this year I went to the cinema and saw a preview of all the big films coming out in 2016, and it really depressed me because almost every upcoming ‘event’ film was a sequel, a re-boot, or a prequel to the re-imagined spin-off of a TV show adaptation! It’s gotten to the point where I even get disheartened by book adaptations, which is silly I know because there are so many great published stories out there that are worthy of being adapted for the big-screen. I guess I just find it sad that most film-makers these days seem to look to the best-sellers list for their inspiration, rather than their own imagination. I mean, if a new book comes out and is a big success, then of course someone will make it into a film at some point, »

Movie Review: Pete’s Dragon

12 August 2016 9:43 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Disney has been on a hot streak lately with live adaptations of their classic animated films. Even though it was divisive, Alice in Wonderland can be seen as the one that started this whole trend as it went on to gross over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. Since then we have gotten last year’s charming (see what I did there) Cinderella, this year’s breathtaking Jungle Book, and next year we’ll get Beauty and the Beast. What makes those films so good (or in Beauty in the Beast’s case, look so good) is that they are able to take a story we are all familiar with and make it feel new and refreshing by making it live action. Neither Cinderella or Jungle Book deviated too far from the source material, but those classic tales receive a breath of fresh air with truly stunning visuals, »

It's lights out for Main Street Electrical Parade at Disney World

12 August 2016 10:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The lights are going out for the Main Street Electrical Parade at Walt Disney World. Disney announced that the nighttime festivity, which has been a mainstay at the Orlando theme park, will draw to a close on October 9, wrapping up a six-year run. After shuttering at the Magic Kingdom, it will head cross country, to Disneyland for what the company is calling a “limited-time encore engagement.” This actually marks the third time the theme park has ended the parade. It first ran from 1977 to 1991. After a nearly eight-year break, it resumed from 1999 to 2001. Its most recent run began in June 2010 (which, at the time, it called a “limited engagement”). The parade itself is a lightbulb filled extravaganza with floats from Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, and other Disney properties, incorporating a half million lights. The Main Street Electrical Parade ran at Disneyland for 24 years, from 1972 to 1996. »

Not All Sequels Suck

12 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Helen Murdoch with ten sequels that are actually decent…

2016 has been hit and miss for sequels and reboots. So far we’ve had the dull Independence Day: Resurgence, the reboot of Ghostbusters, as well as the forgettable Now You See Me 2 and Bad Neighbours 2. Sitting through the latest Alice in Wonderland film was physically painful and a complete misfire. Whilst it seems that we’re dying for more original material, I thought it was worth reminding everyone that not all sequels are bad. In face some can argue that some sequels are better than the originals.

For the sake of this list and to keep it to a top 10, I’ve excluded the superhero genre so no Marvel or DC love here. I’ve also taken out planned adaptations i.e. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Jason Bourne.

Comment at the bottom of this article with your favourite sequels. »

Live-Action Curious George Movie Finds Its Director

10 August 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal is beginning to set the wheels in motion for its live-action Curious George movie, recruiting Andrew Adamson to co-write and direct the long-rumored feature.

Word comes by way of Deadline, revealing that Adamson – best known for his work on The Chronicles of Narnia and DreamWorks’ dormant Shrek franchise – will be the one guiding that curious little monkey onto the big screen. Details remain few and far between at such an early stage, but we understand Universal’s adaptation will mine inspiration from “the classic book series by Margret and Hans Augusto Rey.”

Said to be unrelated to the animated Curious George movie that featured Will Ferrell and Drew Barrymore, Universal’s plans for a live-action spin on the cutesy primate come at a lucrative time for the sub-genre. Thanks in large part to Disney – the House of Mouse has pumped out Alice in Wonderland and The Jungle Book ahead »

Nancy Meyers Indie Comedy Home Again Eyes Reese Witherspoon

5 August 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Variety is reporting that Reese Witherspoon is on the verge of collaborating with Nancy Meyers for indie comedy, Home Again.

Witherspoon, who was all set to team with Meyers for The Intern before a last-minute scheduling conflict forced the actress to bow out, is set to anchor the upcoming picture as a single mother who decides to uproot for the bright lights of Los Angeles where she finds herself living with three eccentric young men – an unconventional family worthy of a sitcom if there ever was one.

Though Nancy Meyers is attached to produce, it is actually her daughter, Hallie Meyers-Shyer, that will take point from behind the lens. No word on which actors will fill the roles of Witherspoon’s newfound roommates, but we’ll keep you updated as Home Again preps to enter production in Los Angeles next month.

Beyond that, we know that Reese Witherspoon remains attached »

Mike Gold, Mickey Mouse, and Ren & Stimpy’s DNA

3 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Listen up. I’m going to tell you a horrible, horrible secret. And it’s about me!

I really don’t care for most Disney animation. The earliest black and white stuff is fun, and there are a few shorts here and there that I enjoy. The features? Not as many. Alice in Wonderland… that’s about it. As Craig Ferguson might ask, “how long have you been in Isis?”

Disney comics is a totally different thing. Every time I’m forced to list my all-time favorite comics creators, Floyd Gotfriedson and Carl Barks are always on that list. Gotfriedson’s Mickey Mouse newspaper strip brought depth and characterization to the popular rodent. His adventures were truly adventures, full of wit and charm, brilliant craftsmanship, on-the-button pacing, and heart. Lucky for us, our pals at Fantagraphics have been reprinting them in brilliant hardcover editions.

Carl Barks was the master behind »

'Ghostbusters' to 'Splash': Why Gender-Flipping Is the New Gritty Reboot

2 August 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Yesterday afternoon, the industry trade papers reported that Disney was mounting a remake of Splash, a 1984 romcom starring a young Tom Hanks smitten with part-time mermaid Daryl Hannah. Remaking a popular favorite — that's not surprising. What was shocking, however, was the way Disney turned the tide on this announcement's reception by swapping its leads' genders, casting movie star/second-coming-of-Gene-Kelly Channing Tatum as the merman and hot-streak character actress Jillian Bell as the ordinary Hanks type. It could have easily been another soul-deadening studio plan to prop up a moldy premise »

‘Bad Moms’ Producer Suzanne Todd: Why the Veteran Producer Likes Staying Outside the Box

2 August 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Many in Hollywood pair Suzanne Todd with her younger sister and producing partner Jennifer, long known as Team Todd. They produced a raft of movies together, many at freewheeling New Line Cinema, including teen coming-of-age classic “Now and Then” and Mike Meyers’ Austin Powers franchise. They also put on the map Christopher Nolan (“Memento”) and Ben Younger (“Boiler Room”). And while they both produced Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” with Joe Roth at Disney, for its sequel “Through the Looking Glass,” Jennifer was busy running Pearl Street Films, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s production company, while Suzanne carried on with the “Alice” sequel. And so she went solo on “Bad Moms,” which Stx opened well this weekend.

Susan Seidelman Looks Back: How ‘Smithereens’ Defined Her Career – Girl Talk

28 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present and future.

Susan Seidelman had just completed her first feature when the Cannes Film Festival came calling. In 1982, Seidelman wasn’t yet 30; she was only a few years out of film school and had only a single feature under her belt. But that didn’t matter to the world’s most well-regarded festival. They wanted Seidelman’s “Smithereens,” and the ensuing reception for the film — a punk-infused dark comedy about the bohemian underworld of New York City featuring a not entirely likable lead character — didn’t just change Seidelman’s life; it changed the way American independent cinema was received around the world.

Smithereens,” shot guerilla-style around the city with a cast and crew made up of many of the filmmaker’s Nyu classmates, marked a sea change for Cannes: It was the first American independent feature had »
