Allen's "Irrational Man," starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone, is said to be a darker, less comedic Allen picture, along the same lines as "Match Point." Phoenix plays a small-town college professor who starts an illicit relationship with one of his students (Stone). The Sony Classics release opens July 24. Another contender is Disney/Pixar's animated "Inside Out," from director Pete Docter (who co-directed with Ronaldo Del Carmen). Docter's acclaimed feature "Up" opened the festival in 2009. Set to open June 19, "Inside Out" is a comic fantasy about the life of »

Pixar has a lot riding on their new feature “Inside Out” if they want to recapture their 2000s golden age as the quintessential leaders of animation. The colorful story of an adventure that takes place inside the mind of a little girl is the studio’s first film in two years (They released one every year since 2006’s “Cars”). It’s also their first original, non-sequel project since 2012’s charming but underwhelming “Brave," as well as the triumphant return of director Pete Docter after he helmed “Up," the second greatest animated film of '00s in this writer’s opinion (It loses to “Wall-e” by a tiny margin). Yes, the premise sounds like a mix of “Osmosis Jones” (an under appreciated animated feature in its own right), and the lesser-known early '90s sit-com "Herman’s Head." However, all of the marketing materials we’ve seen so far, along with »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).
In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Pretty Little Liars cordially invited fans to “A”‘s house on Tuesday’s season finale for a long-awaited — and, let’s be honest, long-overdue — reveal. But did the end result live up to the hype?
As teased in the final moments of last week’s episode, “A” redirected the girls’ police van to its/their freaky, life-sized dollhouse, including replicas of their own bedrooms, where it/they made the girls act out all kinds of bizarre scenarios — like sipping »

Following on from the arrival of the third trailer [which you can watch here], Disney-Pixar has now debuted five new character posters for the upcoming CG-animated adventure Inside Out showing the five emototions who guide our protagnost Riley…
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).

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, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, »

Chicago – The newest Adam Sandler film that doesn’t feature him dressed like a chubby middle schooler is really bad, but in a special way. Similarly, it is an instant classic in the legacy of bizarre disasters, a footnote in writer/director history that must be witnessed to be fully understood.
Part of its perplexity is how the film is always in grasp as it shows itself, and how you can reach out and try to bring it back home, but then it explodes. This is one of those films where its flaws are more believable as a conspiracy than a misjudgment. Someone, please, let the police know that writer/director Tom McCarthy is missing, and someone has his shoes.

Joe Carnahan ("Stretch," "The Grey") is revving up the long dormant "Motorcade" for DreamWorks. At one time eyed by Tom Cruise, and a few years ago slated to star Ryan Reynolds, with a script from Billy Ray (indeed, his is the most recent draft), the thriller has a bunch of terrorists attacking the President's motorcade during a trip to Los Angeles. Four-wheel Drive Down! We'll see if Carnahan will finally be the guy to get this movie off the ground. [Variety] John Lasseter won't be going it alone with "Toy Story 4." Pixar veteran Josh Cooley, who has credits on "The Incredibles," "Cars," "Ratatouille," and "Up," has graduated to the co-director's chair on the sequel. There's no word yet on plot details, except that it will be a "romantic comedy" and not tied to the original trilogy. [via Empire] "Mama" director Andy Muschietti will be behind the the big screen adaptation of »

Disney Pixar has announced that Josh Cooley, who served as head of story on this summer's Inside Out, will co-direct Toy Story 4, alongside John Lasseter. The sequel was first announced back in November, with the studio setting a June 4, 2017 release date and bringing on Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, who co-wrote Celeste and Jesse Forever, to write the screenplay. Here's what Josh Cooley had to say to Variety about Toy Story 4.
"To be co-director on Toy Story 4 with John, who brought the Toy Story characters to the screen 20 years ago, is a dream come true. When I first saw Toy Story I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. Toy Story 4 will continue that tradition and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it!"

Every few years at press tour, I find myself sitting down with Bill Lawrence — creator, co-creator and/or showrunner of “Spin City,” “Scrubs,” “Cougar Town,” “Ground Floor” and NBC’s “Undateable,” which returns for a second season Tuesday night at 9:30 — to talk about the state of TV comedy. As a guy who broke into the business during the ‘90s sitcom boom (his early jobs were on “Boy Meets World” and “Friends”), who’s worked extensively on both traditional multi-cam sitcoms and filmed single-cam comedies, and has now worked for both broadcast and cable (with “Cougar Town,” which concludes its run at the end of this month, he’s done both), he can take a global view of the genre in a way many of his contemporaries can’t, and he remains one of the champion talkers among showrunners of comedy or drama. Back in January, we talked about letting »

Cooley first got his start with the company as an intern on Cars, and has worked on several other Pixar projects, including Ratatouille and Up. He was also the head of story on the upcoming Pixar film Inside Out, and directed a short that will be on the Blu-ray for the animated movie. Josh Cooley on being tapped to »

Though it floated in the rumoursphere in the years since Toy Story 3 effectively appeared to wrap up the story of Woody, Buzz and the rest of the playroom pals (aside from their appearances in shorts and TV specials), a fourth Toy Story film was officially announced last November. With a 2017 release date on the books, John Lasseter has picked Pixar veteran Josh Cooley as his co-director. Cooley has been with the company since legendary story man Joe Ranft hired him as an intern on Cars. Since then, he’s worked his way up through films such as Ratatouille, Brave and Up to become head of story on the company’s forthcoming release, Inside Out. And he’s also earned his director’s stripes making shorts, including one set within the world of Pete Docter’s film, which will be on the Inside Out Blu-ray. “To be co-director on Toy Story 4 with John, »

You can always count on Pixar to deliver something original, and rather brilliant. Of course, the studio makes its sequels – also brilliant – but the concepts it produces are, without exception, beautifully developed. The next one to arrive is Inside Out – and this idea is, frankly, next-level stuff. This idea doesn’t just entertain children, it takes us inside the mind.
Check out the plot summary below:
