It’s Maui Time in Extended Olympics TV Spot For Disney’s ‘Moana’

8 August 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you happened to be tuned into the Olympics last night, you saw a new extended TV spot for the Dwayne Johnson-led Moana, and now Disney Animation has released it online. Their newest venture after the colossal success of Zootopia follows the titular Moana (Auli’i Cravalho), who sails with her hero and companion, the demi-god Maui (Johnson) to a legendary island using her navigational skills. Dwayne looks to play the sweet, goofy, shape-shifting Maui well, hitting a nice counter-note to the brave, venturous Moana to make the perfect pairing.

It promises to be a touching, rousing adventure that should continue Disney Animation’s winning streak, especially in the hands of long-time Disney writer-directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin). See the extended TV spot below, along with character photos, for the film that also stars Alan Tudyk, Jermaine Clement, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Introducing the Cast of Disney's Moana

26 July 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney's Moana is just a few shorts months away!  Before the animated Hawaiian-themed film hits theaters, meet the rest of the characters that will help Moana and Maui in their quest!

We already know the Demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) who is half god, half mortal, all awesome! Although, we haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting the rest of the characters in the gorgeous story of Disney's Moana!  Let's find out more about them!

Jemaine Clement (“The Bfg,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who lives in Lalotai, the realm of monsters. The conceited crustacean wants to be more than a “bottom feeder” and overcompensates for this perceived shortcoming by covering himself in all things shiny.

Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Moana’s confidante and best friend, »

How Alien: Resurrection led to the Ice Age movies

12 July 2016 5:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 13, 2016

Blue Sky Studios’ CGI work on Alien: Resurrection began a long and fruitful relationship with 20th Century Fox…

When Blue Sky Studios was tasked with creating swimming CGI Xenomorphs for the fourth film in the Alien franchise, its animators looked to inspiration from the natural world. Aptly for Hr Giger’s demonic creations, said inspiration was found in a Galapagos Island creature nicknamed by Charles Darwin the “imp of darkness”.

“We patterned [the Xenomorphs’] movements on reference footage of sea iguanas” Blue Sky’s Digital Effects Supervisor for Alien: Resurrection Mitch Kopelman told American Cinematographer magazine in November 1997. “They have this crazy little swim where they tuck their legs under their bodies and use this really long tail to propel themselves.” After much work, the end result was the CGI swimming aliens that pursued Ellen Ripley and co. through the flooded kitchens of the Usm Auriga in the 1997 sequel. »

John Turturro, Paolo Sorrentino & More Create Anthology In Trailer for ‘Rio, I Love You’

1 March 2016 11:15 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You probably know how these [City], I Love You films work: a collection of directors — and some very prestigious ones, at that — create short films that are set in and, perhaps in some way, defined by the area in question. This is a great idea that most would say has never exactly taken off, considering the tepid reception afforded Paris, je t’aime and New York, I Love You, as well as the absolute lack of attention paid to Tbilisi, I Love You. For better or for worse, there’s now Rio, I Love You, which collects the likes of Paolo Sorrentino, José Padilha, Fernando Meirelles, Guillermo Arriaga, and John Turturro to direct, among others, Harvey Keitel, Emily Mortimer, Vincent Cassel, Jason Isaacs, and Turturro himself.

The latest trailer — which arrives more than 18 months after an initial pair and the film’s premiere — is more promising, if only because it displays »

Previously we've seen "Paris, je t'Aime" and "New York, I Love You," and as it goes with the format, some segments are always better than others.

Brazil Animation Takes International Hue

Brazilians ale abreu and Luiz Bolognesi, leading lights of Brazil’s vibrant animation scene, have teamed to co-produce “Voyagers of the Enchanted Forest” and “Immortals,” their respective next toon feature projects.

Move highlights the vitality and esprit de corps of a still-growing industry, thrust into the limelight by the Academy Award nomination for Abreu’s animated feature “Boy & the World,” which won Annecy’s Cristal Award. The previous year Bolognesi’s “Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury” also won at Annecy.

The fruit of the alliance of Abreu’s outfit Filme de Papel with Bolognesi and Lais Bodanzky’s Buriti Filmes suggests complementary and common ambitions. “It gives us much more strength on the international market and brings continuity of employment to talented young Brazilian artists,” Bolognesi says.

Our countdown of the 100 best films of the 21st century continues. This is Part 2 #75 through 51.

Click here for Part 1 (#100-76)!

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success.
