We've been hearing about Pixar's upcoming "Inside Out" -- one of two films being released by the studio next year -- for some time, but we haven't seen much from the film. The film takes places inside the mind of a pre-teen girl named Riley, where her various emotions come to life via the voices of such funny people as Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith and Amy Poehler. Pixar and Disney previously released an image depicting those characters inside her head, but below is our first look at Riley's exterior; she looks like a Pixar kid. Maybe she's Andy's cousin? Here's the full image: "Inside Out" was directed by Pixar vet Pete Docter ("Up," "Monsters Inc."). "Inside Out" opens June 19, 2015. »

What if the seven dwarfs had lived inside of Snow White's head? The next Pixar animated feature will kind of play on that idea, as Inside Out will focus on a little girl whose emotions are personified and put on display for the viewer. Her name is Riley, and the studio has given us our first look at the 11-year-old by way of a brief behind-the-scenes feature available on the Disney Movies Anywhere site (it's almost sort of hidden within a video labeled "1 Fact About Monsters University + a Peek at Inside Out"). In addition to the four seconds of Riley reading a book, looking unsure of something and then finally beaming with a joyous smile of apparent enlightenment, we also get more of those "dwarfs," as director Pete Docter (Up) likens the emotions to...

We likely have to wait until Disney’s Big Hero 6 hits theaters this November to see a trailer for Pixar’s newest feature, Inside Out, but today we have our first official image of the film to tide us over.
The photo features 11-year old girl Riley, whose mind acts as Inside Out‘s main focus. Riley’s family is moving cross country, and the stress from the move throws off her emotions, which actually act as the main characters: Joy (Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler), Anger (comedian Lewis Black), Distrust (The Mindy Project and The Office actress Mindy Kaling), Fear (SNL and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs alum Bill Hader), and Sadness (The Office‘s Phyllis Smith).
We’ve already seen some concept art for the film, featuring the character designs for the emotions, but this is our first look at Riley herself. It may not »

Ahead of the film’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next weekend, we’ve managed to get our hands on the first The Cobbler poster for director Thomas McCarthy’s (Win Win) upcoming fantasy drama. The film stars Adam Sandler as a disillusioned shoe repairman who happens upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see things from their perspective. As a fan of McCarthy’s previous work—especially The Station Agent—I’m very much looking forward to seeing how he handles a more fantastical concept. He’s not entirely unfamiliar with the genre, as McCarthy previously worked on the script for Pixar’s Up, but this also marks a curious turn for Sandler given McCarthy’s dramatic background. Hopefully the two make a strong pairing. Hit the jump to take a look at the first The Cobbler poster. »

Not much has been officially released for Pixar’s Inside Out. The GeekTyrant staff did get a sneak peek at the film during D23, but other than that, they've kept a tight lid on it. But now we have a look at main character/setting, Riley.
Inside Out takes place inside of the mind of a young tween named Riley. Each facet of her emotions is expressed as individual characters Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), and Anger (Lewis Black). This team of emotions work together to help Riley as she adjusts to living in a new city. Inside Out is written and directed by Pete Docter whose last film, Up, was emotionally resonant and fun.

It’s amazing just how much you can change the feel and look of a film though editing. Unless you are a filmmaker, critic, film teacher, and/or have at least worked as an editor at one point in you life – most moviegoers don’t necessarily notice the editing. Most people don’t focus on the thousands of separate images that make up the story but instead get lost in the story, taking for granted the ever-roaming camera that offers us a plethora of views from various vantage points. Film editing is an under-appreciated art, which is why I sort of love videos like the one below, which shows how an editor can take footage from a film and turn it into an entirely different beast. YouTube user MrStratman7 took a pass at Pete Docter’s Up, changing the score and moving the audio so that it felt more like a traditional Michael Bay movie. »
Editing. It changes everything, from tone to intent. Mess with the pacing, and you change an entire film. Swap the musical cues of a brilliant composer for a tech-metal track from a Top 40 super group, and you have a whole new scene. And as this video shows, manipulate a classic Pixar film to make it look like it.s part of Michael Bay.s canon. Or cannon. With Bay, either applies. YouTube user MrStratman7 took a pass at Pete Docter.s Up, changing the score and moving the audio so that it felt more like a traditional Michael Bay movie. He worked with the dialogue at his disposal, and added a few explosions. Ok, a ton of explosions. Because Bay = Explosions. Everybody knows that. I also believe he ramped up the lighting. I can.t recall this many lens flares in Up. Maybe it.s just been a while since »
It hasn’t been an easy production for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur; Bob Peterson, the Oscar winning director of Up was replaced and then the movie was pushed from May 30, 2014 to November 25, 2015. Now I’m all for quality over quantity so you won’t hear me moan that we don’t get a new Pixar movie every year like we had been getting for 8 years straight. The highly anticipated film is going to have a lot to prove considering the rollercoaster »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
Why We're In: As Adam and Eve, Hiddles is the mopey yin to Swinton's yang. The costumes and production design are to die (or live forever) for. John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, and Jeffrey Wright shine in smaller roles. In a word, it's gorgeous.

It's an old joke, but when pulled off appropriately it works and YouTuber MrStratman7 has done just that in my opinion with this spoof trailer for Up, imagining what it might have looked like had it been directed by Michael Bay rather than Pixar alums Pete Docter and Bob Peterson. The answer, obviously, is more explosions... Watch below. yt id="u5KQQWlIgGc" width="500" »

Full disclosure: I am a frustrated Adam Sandler fan. Before you gasp in horror and dismiss everything I’ve ever written, hear me out. The operative word here is ‘frustrated.’ What is the cause of my discontentment? Well, about 95% of his film output, to be precise. I have exactly zero interest in Grown Ups, or its sequel. You could not pay me to invest time in Don’t Mess With The Zohan, and I have no intention of watching Blended, ever.
Punch-Drunk Love, however, is one of my favourite movies – largely due to Sandler’s performance – and I have a deep appreciation for Funny People. I even have a soft spot for Spanglish, since we’re sharing details. What do these films have in common? They require Sandler to act with real emotional depth – and that is something I have been waiting for him to do again since 2009. I »

Earlier today a handful of films were added to the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival line-up, and one of which is the latest from Win Win director, Tom McCarthy, a comedy called The Cobbler. Adam Sandler leads as a guy named Max Simkin, a disillusioned shoe repairman who happens upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see things from their perspective. With the film now locked to make its world premiere in the Special Presentations program, two The Cobbler images have hit the web. We don’t have the official schedule just yet, but the film will screen at some point during the festival’s September 4th – 14th run. In the meantime, hit the jump for those two images. The Cobbler also stars Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, Dan Stevens, Fritz Weaver, Yul Vazquez, Steve Buscemi and Dustin Hoffman. »

As if the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival wasn't already crowded with must-see films, Tiff has now sent out a press released announcing the addition of 24 films to their Galas and Special Presentations lineup. Sundance premieres Infinitely Polar Bear and Laggies will be coming to Toronto as will Cannes' debuts such as Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria as well as The Search, the new film from The Artist director Michael Hazanavicius. Among the world premieres, I'm incredibly excited for Tom McCarthy's new film, The Cobbler and Sophie Barthes' adaptation of Madame Bovary. As for movies that probably won't be entering the Oscar-race but could still be highly entertaining, there's Henry Hobson's debut Maggie, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Midwestern farmer who stays by his daughter's side as she starts turning into a zombie. Hit the jump for the full list of new additions. The 2014 Toronto »

True Blood, Season 7, Episode 7, “May Be the Last Time”
Written by Craig Chester
Directed by Simon Jayes
Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO
True Blood‘s final season has been excellent thus far–the writing’s tight, the story line’s are cohesive even when they branch in various directions, and the acting’s been lovely. After so many solid episodes, there was bound to be a dud–”May Be the Last Time” is, arguably, the weakest contribution to the series’s final season.
Up until now, the action and the emotional resonance have been evenly-balanced; for every Hep-v vampire attack, there were a handful of character moments showing just how affected the townspeople were by the tragedy. »

“Waiting sucks” took on a whole new meaning during Sunday’s True Blood, as Sookie was forced to sweat out the results of her Hep-v blood test. Is she responsible for inadvertently sentencing Bill to death?
Sadly, the answer is yes; after the midnight assault on Fangtasia, when those H-Vamps exploded all over Sookie, she contracted the Hep-v virus and passed it along to Bill during their feedings. Even though it was obvious her test results would come back positive, it was heartbreaking watching Sookie wait for the news, »
After last week’s war at Fangtasia, things are setting down in Bon Temps. Arlene (Carrie Preston), Holly (Lauren Bowles), Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Jane are safe at home, and the Hep-v vamps plaguing the town seem to be gone for the time being. Now, it’s time for Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) to start their hunt for Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp).
Eric And Pam Follow Sarah Newlin To Dallas
After releasing Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) as her maker, Eric and Pam follow a lead Willa gave them in exchange for her freedom. When she was living with her father and Sarah, Willa once overheard her stepmother talking on the phone to her vampire sister in Dallas. After giving Ginger (Tara Buck) an unceremonious goodbye, »
