Saturday Night Live comes back tonight? Honestly, thanks to a hiatus filled with casting announcements and Update shakeups and meticulous analysis of the show’s history (not to mention Live from New York’s rerelease), it sort of feels like it never left. (Just me?)
Which doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be champing at the bit for tonight’s 40th season premiere—a sure-to-be splashy episode featuring a leaner, meaner cast, an all-new pair at the Weekend Update desk, and a host with potential to immediately join the list of greats. Maybe it’d be best to go over »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

We can't believe it's already over! We still have Stars and Stripes bunting in our living room and pretzels in the oven, but the Made in Chelsea trip to New York is now at an end (and no, we're not happy about it). Luckily, it went out in style with a shock hook-up, more Stevie romance drama (who would have guessed?) and plenty of other bits too. Read on for our 22 best bits...
1. The moment when... Lucy took a huge dog for a walk (or rather, he took her for a walk).
2. The moment when... Sam tucked into a giant ice cream sundae.
Well, that was anti-climactic.
After a week of waiting for Big Brother‘s highly anticipated Rewind twist to be revealed to the houseguests, Wednesday’s live broadcast featured a whole lot of filler content, yet no real results.
That’s right: No one was evicted, no one was crowned Head of Household (yet) and no one could understand most of what Caleb was saying throughout the hour. But there are still some highlights to discuss, so let’s have at it.

There’s still the best part of ten months to go before we get to see Inside Out, the next film from Pixar, but Disney has given us our first look at the main character of Riley thanks to a featurette released on the online service Disney Movies Anywhere…
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, »

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.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week
"Y Tu Mama También (Criterion)"
What's It About? Alfonso Cuarón's road trip romance features star-making performances by Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna, who play two young dudes who both become infatuated with an older woman. Beautiful, sexy, and sad.

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" »
