Fox Taps ‘Rio’ Director Carlos Saldanha for Sci-Fi Movie ‘Timeless’

13 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has hired veteran animation director Carlos Saldanha to helm sci-fi fantasy movie “Timeless” as a possible franchise starter.

The project, based on the upcoming three-book series from Armand Baltazar, will be a live-action CG adaptation. Producers are Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer of Scott Free Productions, Steve Tzirlin, Brooklyn Weaver of Energy Entertainment and Saldhana through his BottleCap Prods.

Scott Free senior VP Michael Pruss, who brought the project into the shingle,  will exec produce and oversee “Timeless.” Maresa Pullman, who oversees BottleCap, will also exec produce.

The book series, to be published by HarperCollins, occurs in Chicago after a “time collision” eliminates the barriers between the past, present and future. The story follows a boy and his friends who rescue his father from a Roman general.

Saldanha’s directing credits include the first three “Ice Age” films and the two “Rio” titles. He has a first-look deal at Fox. »

Pixar’s latest ‘Inside Out’ gets a teaser trailer

2 October 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Pixar has hit a rough patch as critical darlings with a handful of entries like Cars 2, Monsters University and Brave that failed to live up to the studio’s high standards. But their latest original story idea may be the boost they need. Inside Out is Pete Docter’s first film since 2009′s Up, and it’s a look inside the mind of a little girl at the personification of her emotions, Joy, Fear, Sadness, Anger and Disgust. Docter developed the story from the perspective of a parent, and here’s hoping it’s a treat for parents and kids alike. The film has a more star studded cast than Pixar usually assembles, including Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black and Phyllis Smith. Inside Out releases June 19, 2015. Watch the trailer below.

Watch: First Official Trailer for Pixar's 'Inside Out'

2 October 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Pixar has been on a rocky road as of late with Brave, Cars 2 and Monsters University all coming in well below the standards set for the studio that changed the way we look at animated movies over the last decade. Next year, however, they will attempt to right the ship with a new, original story in Inside Out, directed by Pete Docter (Up). The new film apparently takes us inside the human mind of a young girl named 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 »

Watch: First Trailer For Pixar's Ambitious 'Inside Out'

2 October 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's been a while since Pixar delivered something worth getting excited over. "Cars 2," "Brave" and "Monsters University" all varied in quality, but none come close to touching the animation studio's most revered work. But hopes are high for the upcoming "Inside Out," and the first trailer has arrived. Directed by Pete Docter ("Up," "Monsters Inc."), the movie boasts an interesting premise, taking place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl named Riley (Kaitlyn Dias). “In truth, Riley is not our main character; she is our setting,” Docter said earlier this year at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival (via Variety). He added, “It’s based on a strong emotional experience I had watching my daughter grow up. There is something that is lost when you grow up.” Indeed, this will be one of the few movies that makes emotions actual characters, with Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Joy »

Travis Knight interview: Laika, Boxtrolls, Gilliam, future

10 September 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The man who runs Laika, Travis Knight, chats to us about his plans, hating sequels, more Laika movies, Terry Gilliam and The Boxtrolls.

Travis Knight is an unusual man. He has two jobs at stop motion animation studio Laika. Firstly, he runs the company. But secondly, he's part of the animation crew, taking direction from a film's directors.

With The Boxtrolls heading to cinemas this week, he sat down to chat to us about plans for more Laika movies, his hatred of sequels, and a possible Terry Gilliam project....

I have an ongoing belief that it's important to talk to children about 'real' things, and that there are few better Trojan horses via which to do that than film. When you look at a project that's appropriate for your company, is there a resonance that you're looking for, and is that way Laika's films to date have been steeped in pre-established literature? »

Pixar Movie Supercut Explores the Use of Color

9 September 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This is a one-minute movie supercut called "Roygbiv" that explores the use of color in the films of Pixar. Those movies include footage from Toy StoryA Bug's LifeToy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille, Wall-e, Up, Toy Story 3Cars 2, Brave, and Monsters University. The video was created by Rishi Kaneria, and it's really interesting to see how the color design of these films work with each other. Also the title of the video corresponds with the colors presented, which of course are the colors of the rainbow. Thanks to /Film for the tip!

'Roygbiv' makes your favorite Pixar movies even prettier

8 September 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Roygbiv (noun)

1) An acronym that stands for the color order of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.

2) A short video, edited by Rishi Kaneria with music by Moderat, that brings various Pixar clips together, demonstrating how the animation studio uses said color spectrum, visually and narratively.

For our purposes, we’ll be discussing the latter…Roygbiv, the video, begins strong with bold red and orange hues (i.e. Merida’s fiery red hair in Brave), mellows out a bit with relaxing yellows and greens (i.e. the pastel house from Up), and really cools off with blues, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

10 Brits You Never Realised Were In Pixar Films

25 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Pixar Animation Stuidos

Thanks to the meticulous and painstaking way they create every single detail of their films, there aren’t many who have as much success with their films as Pixar Animation Studios. Perhaps one reason they are nigh on perfect is that the cast of each film reflects the way in which they are made: it’s all about teamwork. There isn’t one Pixar film which has an outright star as all of them either focus on the buddy movie double act, or even a whole group or family of central characters.

This is clearly something that is important to Pixar as a company, as any employee, from director to cleaner, is allowed to pitch an idea for a film, and it is the people who work for them who are often considered their most important assets. This goes not just for those who work for Pixar full time, »

‘Penguins Of Madagascar’ Gets A New Trailer

6 August 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The best part of all three Madagascar films return in their own spin-off. Those devilishly sly penguins reveal themselves to be secret agents and must team up with a new and technologically advanced espionage team known as The North Wind in order to stop an evil Octopus known as Dave. The film has brought in some respectable talent to fill out the supporting roles, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Classified and John Malkovich as the normal named villain. Despite being a huge fan of the penguins as characters, as well as loving penguins in general, the trailer doesn’t have too many laughs, but a lot of that may be down to my feelings toward the general plot. The shift into espionage territory is more suited here than it was for Cars 2, but the animals have become almost too anthropomorphic. It almost feels as though humans don’t exist in this world, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – August 4th 2014

4 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

Something I didn’t realise was happening is that Netflix UK and Ireland actually has a blog and what they have been doing  on the rare update is providing information on which ISP’s are actually providing the fastest service. For the last couple of months the top two have always been Virgin and BT with BT coming out on top. Surprisingly though this month it’s switched around and Virgin is on top, considering the negative feedback I always hear about them this is very interesting.

If you google ‘Netflix News’ then you can usually find this blog and check the updates because otherwise it’s not the easiest thing to find via the site. It’s not only a good way of checking that you will get a reliable service if you are just starting out but a good way of seeing whether or not it is worth »

Review: Planes: Fire & Rescue Rescues Spin-Off Franchise

17 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Having not seen last summer's Disney's Planes ("From the world of Pixar's Cars!"), I went into its fast-tracked, pre-ordained, computer animated sequel with two questions: 1. What happened in the first movie? And 2., How can that possibly matter? After seeing Planes: Fire & Rescue, the questions remain, albeit sans my original sarcasm. Not only did I take on the task of reviewing Fire & Rescue ignorant of the first Planes, but I didn't particularly care about that. Having heard that Planes is trite and uninspired at best, and an obnoxious airborne redux of Cars 2 (of all things!) at worst -- a reviewer friend of mine panned it as a "junk food movie" -- I figured perhaps it's best to let the sequel stand on...

Press Tour: Cristin Milioti and Ben Feldman's instant 'A to Z' chemistry

13 July 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's relationship comedy "A to Z" will answer a question TV fans never even thought to ask: Do Cristin Milioti (the Mother on "How I Met Your Mother") and Ben Feldman (Ginsberg on "Mad Men") have chemistry? That, and the conceit of following a relationship from beginning to end over the course of a single season, were the hot topics at the show's panel at the TCA 2014 summer press tour. Executive producer Ben Queen (a writer on "Cars 2" and creator of that short-lived Fox series "Drive" with Nathan Fillion and Emma Stone) said chemistry was the primary concern in casting. "When they got together to do the network test they had met each other literally a hour before. It was real electric chemistry. I had been told this existed and it's there," Queen said. While Feldman was more self-effacing ("Cristin had her job, they needed to bring in a »

Weekend Report: Fourth 'Transformers' Opens to $300 Million Worldwide

29 June 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Based on this weekend's returns, the Transformers aren't going to face extinction any time soon.At the domestic box office, the fourth installment in the immensely successful franchise opened to $100 million*. That's the biggest opening of the year so far ahead of Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($95 million).More importantly, it took in over $202 million from 37 international markets. That includes a stunning $92 million in China, which is the biggest "foreign" opening ever there (and probably the biggest overall, though we don't have data to confirm that).Overall, the movie earned over $300 million worldwide this weekend. With openings throughout Europe and Latin America on the way, Transformers: Age of Extinction seems poised to make a run at $1 billion.Domestically, Age of Extinction's opening ranks second all-time among Transformers movies behind 2009's Revenge of the Fallen ($108 million). That's not an apples-to-apples comparison, though: all three previous movies burned off demand by launching mid-week. »

Weekend Report: 'Man' Defeats 'Boys,' Falls Short of Predecessor

22 June 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Think Like a Man Too narrowly defeated fellow Sony comedy 22 Jump Street to take first place at the box office this weekend. Meanwhile, Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys got off to a quiet start.Overall, it was a slow weekend at the box office, with the Top 12 earning $138.8 million. That's down a whopping 40 percent from the same weekend last year, when Monsters University, World War Z and Man of Steel combined for $190 million.Playing at 2,225 locations, Think Like a Man Too opened to $29.2 million this weekend. That's a bit lower than the original Think Like a Man's $33.6 million, and is also below November's The Best Man Holiday ($30.1 million). It is at least an improvement over February's About Last Night, which also starred Kevin Hart and opened to $25.6 million.A $29 million opening for a modestly-budgeted relationship comedy is undeniably good. Still, with Hart's increased popularity and with a fun new »

Pixar's 'Inside Out' has strong personal and emotional origins for director Pete Docter

20 June 2014 12:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the first time in nearly a decade, Pixar Animation Studios is taking the year off. The Emeryville-Calif.-based company will not be releasing a film in 2014, and it also finds itself in an interesting position, striving to maintain its identity as a haven for bold original visions while at the same time seeing some of its biggest successes inevitably move into franchise and sequel terrain. Wednesday night representatives of the studio took over a theater in West Hollywood's Directors Guild of America (DGA) headquarters to present materials from one such original vision from "Monsters, Inc." and "Up" director Pete Docter: "Inside Out." The film is set for release exactly one year from now, on June 19, 2015. Producer Jonas Rivera quipped that such a seemingly long lead is "dog years" in animation time, where projects typically move at a glacial pace for years on end. When he and Docter finished »

The movie directors who could use a good boss

19 June 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

They're talented, individual, but could, possibly, do with a bit of editorial guidance. Could these directors use a boss, we wonder?

Odd List

In truth, we're a bit frightened about this one. Several times in pub/coffee shop/cider drinking in the park conversations, we've chatted about film directors who perhaps have got too powerful, that they seem to be able to get their own way without having someone to call bullshit on them - be it a good boss, or a very good friend that they trust and listen to.

This can be a very good thing. After all, we want film directors to be free to tell their stories. We don't want studio suits calling the shots. And some directors use their independence wondefully well, without losing what bought it to them in the first place (so, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis and such like).

Angus MacLane Co-Directing Finding Dory With Andrew Stanton

11 June 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Cars 2 fizzled and Monsters University didn’t really offer much to Monsters Inc. fans, Pixar has proven with Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 that it understands how to make great sequels. So we’re holding out hope for Finding Dory, a sequel to Oscar winner Finding Nemo, especially because the first film’s director Andrew Stanton is back on board. Unfortunately, we won’t get to see it until 2016 because of The Good Dinosaur getting delayed and moved to Dory‘s spot, but at least we’ve got some interesting news about the film to tide us over.

While tweeting about an amusing Lego creation, Stanton let slip that Pixar veteran Angus MacLane is co-directing Finding Dory with him:

New Plot Details For Pixar’s Inside Out Revealed

11 June 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the middling success of Cars 2Brave and Monsters University, Pixar has been stuck in a bit of a rut over the past few years. Luckily, the animation studio’s upcoming slate looks primed to deliver the same kind of inventive, exhilarating family adventures that put Pixar on the map in the first place. And none of them look more promising than 2015′s Inside Out, which travels inside the mind of a young girl.

We’ve gotten bits and pieces of information about Inside Out over the past few months, but director Peter Docter (Up) actually gave attendees of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival an extended look at the film yesterday. According to Docter, like Up, Inside Out starts out with a montage of a young girl named Riley in her early years, showing color-coded and anthropomorphized emotions appearing based on corresponding events. One observer sent the following description to Pixar Post. »
