Pixar Animation Has Dismantled & Reimagined 'The Good Dinosaur'

20 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last fall, Pixar Animation had to push back the release of The Good Dinosaur from an initial release this past summer back to November 25th, 2015. The news came just a few weeks after we learned Bob Peterson had been removed from the film as director and a brain trust consisting of John Lasseter, Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, replacement Brave director Mark Andrews, and Party Cloudy short director Pete Sohn were put in place to take over the project. Now we have word that Pixar has completely overhauled the film as voice star John Lithgow says the film has been drastically changed for the better. Speaking with Collider (promoting his forthcoming, fantastic indie Love is Strange), Lithgow said: “I recorded the entire role in Good Dinosaur. They have now dismantled it and completely reimagined it, and it is a fantastic new story. So I’m gonna record again on it within the next month. »

Disney Classics Getting Blu-Ray Release August 12th – Tarzan, Hercules, And More

6 August 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

A slew of classic Disney movies are hitting for the first time on Blu-Ray, including one double-pack release, and you’re going to want to make sure to pick these up. You haven’t paid attention to some of these titles for a while, and it’s about time you got the chance to catch them on Blu-Ray. The best part is that there’s a great mix of releases hitting.

The rest of the group covers a great spectrum, including two animated “big” titles, and a 10th Anniversary release. There’s a lot to expose your family to here, so check out all the info below, »

22 July 2014 6:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Last fall, ABC aired a charming Halloween special starring the Toy Story franchise’s beloved playthings. Its ratings success has paved the way for another half-hour that’ll air on the network later this holiday season—and this one has more dinos than the first.

The second special, called Toy Story That Time Forgot, finds the heroes tangling with a gang of new action figures led by Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd). Much like Buzz Lightyear in the franchise’s first film, Reptillus and his crew don’t know that they’re just toys—which causes some major complications, »

Ben Whishaw replaces Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington

17 July 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A month ago Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) dropped out of Paul King’s adaptation of the beloved children’s book Paddington, saying that he no longer felt that his voice fit the part. His departure came just a few months before the iconic British bear’s winter release date, meaning King and co. needed to find a new voice actor quickly.

According to The Daily Mail, they’ve found their replacement: Skyfall and Cloud Atlas actor Ben Whishaw.

Producer David Heyman noted that Firth’s voice was “ultimately, too mature” for the part of Paddington, so Whishaw, who’s twenty years younger than Firth, should fit the bill nicely.

Whishaw told the Daily Mail that he had “no relationship to Paddington whatsoever” before being asked “quite out of the blue” to audition for the part, but in the grand scheme of »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

26 June 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is extending invitations to join the organization to 271 artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

'The Lion King': 20 Things You Didn't Know About the Disney Classic

14 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sure, you've seen "The Lion King" dozens of times. You own the soundtrack and you've caught the Broadway show. Maybe you even had "Lion King" sheets and went to bed singing "Hakuna Matata."

And what "Lion King" fan doesn't know about the scene where stars supposedly spell out "Sex"? We bet there are still some things you didn't know about the beloved Disney classic, which turns 20 on June 15.

1. When writer Irene Mecchi was hired, she was told that the story pitch was "'Bambi in Africa' meets 'Hamlet,'" so she started calling it "Bamlet."

2. Disney believed that "Pocahontas" (which came out in 1995) would be the bigger, more prestigious film and put all its key animators on it instead. Story artist Brenda Chapman (who went on to direct "Brave" and "The Prince of Egypt") thought the story "wasn't very good" and writer Burny Mattinson declared, "I don't know who is »

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. »

'Twilight' director Bill Condon will translate Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' to live action (Updated)

4 June 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Update: A couple of new details here. You might be wondering, since the original report doesn't mention any story details, how exactly this thing is going to play out. Sources tell HitFix that Condon won't only be drawing from the 1991 Disney film. In his pitch to the studio, the director said he would also include most, if not all, of the Menken/Rice songs from the Broadway musical that ran for 13 years from 1994 to 2007. It will be a "straight-forward, live action, large-budget movie musical," we're told. See below for the earlier story. Earlier: With "Maleficent" hitting big (though, contextually, not as big as the breathless media seems to think), and an "Alice in Wonderland" sequel on the way, it's clear Disney is interested in testing the stamina of the company's intellectual properties in the live action space. Add one more to the schedule: "Beauty and the Beast." Variety reports that »
