Dumbo, Disney’s latest live-action remake of one of their classic animated films, has found yet another big name talent to add to its cast.
Variety has confirmed today that Argo‘s Alan Arkin has now signed up for the pic. A legendary actor and one who always impresses, this will mark the second time that Arkin’s teamed up with director Tim Burton, as the pair previously worked together on 1990’s Edward Scissorhands.
He’s not the only Burton regular to be roped in for the project, either. Former Beetlejuice and Batman star Michael Keaton is on board, as is his Batman Returns co-star Danny DeVito (who also worked with Burton on Mars Attacks! and Big Fish). Another Burton regular, Eva Green (Dark Shadows, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), is involved as well, rounding out what’s a very impressive cast.
As you no doubt know, Dumbo »

Emma Hartshorne and Wayne Kenward are hopping mad for their rabbits.
The Stratford-Upon-Avon couple love their 30 bunnies so much, they spent thousands of dollars to give them a special surprise, reports Metro.
The funds went to transform the couple’s home garden into a magical, Alice in Wonderland-themed rabbit play land. Hartshorne and Kenward did most of the work themselves, adding a rabbit tree house (complete with bar), a bunny-shaped maze and other unique touches to their outdoor space.
The pair cut costs, but not style, by using reclaimed materials and hiring workers willing to garden for free.

When Brielle Burr turned 6 months old, her parents, Ryan and Candace Burr of Taylorsville, Utah, threw her a party because everyone told them that their daughter would never live to celebrate her first birthday.
Born with Beare Stevenson syndrome, a rare disorder that causes premature fusing of the skull, blockage of the nasal passages, brain growth issues and a furrowed appearance, Brielle would be lucky to live several months, let alone a year, doctors told the Burrs in 2013, when she was only 1 day old.
Four years later, now that Brielle recently celebrated turning 4, “we hope to continue beating the odds, »

Once Upon a Time is taking a new direction when it returns for its seventh season this Fall, and it's both scary and exciting. While creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have "reinvented" the show in the past with new characters and realms, this season will be entirely different as the story flashes forward to an adult Henry Mills and his daughter, Lucy - but don't call this season a reboot. Even though a lot of the stars will be exiting the show, you can rest assured it will still pay homage to the original. Here's what to expect from the new season, including when it will begin! 1. The Trailer 2. There's a New Hero in Town With Jennifer Morrison's departure, the story won't be about Emma Swan anymore. Instead, her son, Henry (now played by Andrew J. West), will be stepping up as the show's leading hero alongside his daughter, »

Hiyao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away screens this Friday and Saturday nights (August 11th and 12th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’ Midnight series. The midnight screening will be Subtitled. There will also be a matinee at noon on Saturday August 12th that will be the dubbed version.
People call Hiyao Miyazaki the Japanese Disney and Spirited Away is considered one of his very best, if not his masterpiece. The film starts like a fairly typical take on Alice in Wonderland or Narnia. A girl is bought into a fantasy world and has to find her way back. But Miyazaki takes it even further. His heroine, ten year old Chihiro is a typically modern girl, upset about moving into a new home and afraid of new changes in her life. »

Remember when 3D was Hollywood's savior? In 2010, 21 percent of total box-office revenue in North America ($10.6 billion), or $2.2 billion, came from 3D tickets sales. That was the year of 3D hits Toy Story 3 and Alice in Wonderland; additionally, much of the revenue James Cameron's groundbreaking Avatar, released in late December 2009, was earned in 2010.
Fast-forward to 2016, when 3D revenue amounted to $1.6 billion, down 8 percent from 2015. That's despite the fact that overall box-office revenue hit an all-time high of $11.4 billion. The share of 3D revenue was just 14 percent.

Monday’s announcement comes four months after Skydance disclosed it had launched an animated division and formed a multi-year partnership with Madrid-based Ilion Animation Studios to develop and produce a slate of animated feature films and TV series.

Once Upon a Time faced its latest test at Comic-Con panel on Saturday, when it presented its “rebooted” season seven for the fans in San Diego -- the first without several of its departed original series regulars.
But things got off to a rocky start when a vocal fan yelled out at the top of the panel, “Why?!,” likely referencing the cast shakeup, which saw the exits of Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas and Emilie de Ravin. Moderator Yvette Nicole Brown shut down the fan, warning the passionate audience that negativity was going to be condoned.

Yesterday, we ran a piece asking questions about the Cars movie universe. Here's the other side of the argument...
Yesterday, Simon poured forth a long list of sticking points he has with the world of Pixar's Cars. It was a typically well-written piece from our fearless editor.
It was, in my view, also something of a waste of time.
Because there are no 'logical inconsistencies' with Cars that need to be argued about. It can all be explained very easily. In fact, you only need to grasp one idea for any worries about 'internal logic' to crumble away. And that core idea is that there is no internal logic, nor need there be, because Cars is governed by a kind of 'external logic'. Cars is ruled by the principle of puns.
The characters in Cars are cars, but they live in a version of our world. It's not quite our world, »
Are there rules on how to make a space epic? If there are, Luc Besson has certainly never heard them because in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, he takes the genre upside down, gives it a shake and rattle, and delivers one of the most positively bonkers films of the year. Based on the long running Franco-Belgian comic book Valérian and Laureline, which served as inspiration for other Besson projects like The Fifth Element, the film follows Major Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Sergeant Laureline (Cara Delevingne), special agents of the World State Federation who enforce intergalactic safety, as they travel to a distant planet to retrieve a rare creature — perhaps the last of its kind in the universe — from the hands of toad-like aliens who run their business in a market straight out of Casablanca.

Sony Pictures Imageworks, celebrating its 25th anniversary, is unique in Hollywood as the only studio-run visual effects and animation division. Formed in 1992 (now headquartered in Vancouver), Imageworks alternates between live-action/CG hybrids and animation with its younger sister, Sony Pictures Animation, which was founded in 2002.
Imageworks has won two Oscars (“Spider-Man 2” VFX and “The ChubbChubbs!” animated short) along with an Academy Sci-Tech award this year for an advanced shading program. But Imageworks first cut its teeth on “Speed,” “James and the Giant Peach,” “Jumanji,” “Starship Troopers,” and “Contact” before tackling “Stuart Little” in 1999, the first-cg-animated character to star in a live-action feature.
Since then, Imageworks spear-headed performance capture-based virtual production with director Robert Zemeckis (“Polar Express,” “Monster House”), and has continued to work on franchises including “Spider-Man” (“Homecoming” opens this week), “The Smurfs,” and “Hotel Transylvania.”
Here’s our ranking of the 10 best VFX moments from Imageworks:
