The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.
Directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream, Disney•Pixar's The Good Dinosaur opens in theaters on Nov. 25, 2015. Peter Sohn made his directorial debut with the Pixar short film Partly Cloudy. He has worked in the art, story and animation departments, and also has voiced the characters of Emile from Academy Award-winning Ratatouille and Scott "Squishy" Squibbles from Monsters University.
Every October, ABC Family treats viewers to 13 straight nights of spooky movies leading up to the scariest night of the year: Halloween. The schedule is out for this year's annual marathon, and there are a lot of terrifying movies to look forward to. Ok, they're mostly Halloween movies for wimps, but they're still great! Most of the real scary stuff starts at midnight, like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Poltergeist II: The Other Side. Take a look below to plan which movies you want to tune in for, and if you need Halloween costume ideas, we have those too!

Loved Inside Out? You may be one of the many people praying for a sequel to this year's animated hit. Pixar is certainly no stranger to creating franchises out of standalone films (see Toy Story 2 and 3, Cars 2, Monsters University, the upcoming Finding Dory, and more), but that doesn't necessarily mean Inside Out will automatically get the sequel treatment. The studio has yet to confirm anything, so we went straight to the cast! We caught up with some of them during a press day for the film, which is out on DVD on Oct. 13 (and Blu-ray on Nov. 3), and picked their brains about what they know. "I have not heard anything about a sequel, but I am hoping that there is one, for sure," said Kaitlyn Dias, who voices Riley. "I would love to be able to continue working on something as - 'awesome' isn't even a good enough »

Rome – The Rome Film Festival has unveiled the lineup of its 10th edition comprising a rich mix of crowdpleasing and more esoteric fare, including local launches of James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour,” Michael Almereyda’s “The Experimenter,” Peter Sollett’s “Freehold,” Lenny Abrahamsson’s “Room,” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s docu “Junun” (pictured) about Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s travels to India.
Under new direction by New York-based Italian journalist and academic Antonio Monda, the Rome fest has been renamed Festa del Cinema – which translates literally as “Film Party” rather than festival. The only award is given by the audience.
Monda said he decided to do away with the competition, the juries, and the opening and closing ceremonies “all rituals that I view as too stuffy and conventional, inappropriate to what I had in mind.” He instead kept the audience nod “to underscore the idea of a »

San Sebastian — Javier Beltramino, director of “Arroz y fosforos,” has created a Buenos Aires-based animation studio, Mr Zelig, designed to become a building block of an Argentina toon industry in the wake of Juan Jose Campanella’s “Foosball,” the biggest animated feature ever made out of Latin America.
Overseen by Beltramino, but with day-to-day management delegated to third parties, Mr. Zelig will initiate business looking to service third-party productions, Beltramino said at San Sebastian.
Beltramino’s main focus and day-job remains, he said, Telefonico Studios where, as its production manager for Latin America, he reports to Axel Kuschevatzsky. “I’m very grateful to Axel for the freedom he gives me to dedicate my spare time to animation,” he said.
Mr Zelig’s mid-term plans are far more ambitious than services, hoswever,, repping a pioneering thrust to take much of Latin America’ toon industry, in Argentina and beyond, to another level. »

The Good Dinosaur has been a long time coming. And though Pixar has released a couple of teasers, we have yet to hear the voice cast behind this grand prehistoric adventure. Today, a new sneak peek has arrived in the form of an international trailer. And in it, we finally get to hear the main character, Arlo, speak. We also get to hear his father for the first time, along with a couple of other assorted characters. There is plenty of new footage mixed in with some scenes we've previously seen before. The Good Dinosaur appears to be filled with comedy and adventure, and will likely be Pixar's second big hit of 2015.

As streaming services go, Amazon Prime Instant Video is one of the youngest names around.
There’s a decent library of entertainment behind the relative-newbie moniker, though. That’s partly due to the fact that the website used to be LoveFilm, before Amazon bought them out.

Disney-Pixar's smash hit Inside Out is coming home on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere October 13th and on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack and On-Demand November 3rd! It will include an extensive line-up of bonus features including deleted scenes, including the theatrical short film Lava, “Paths to Pixar: The Women of Inside Out,” and the all-new animated short “Riley’s First Date?”
Inside Out takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.

With Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust reeling in $600 million at the worldwide box office, Pixar has given fans a sneak peek of one of the shorts accompanying Inside Out's home release.
A year on from the events of the movie, a young boy calls on Riley while she's at home in San Francisco.
Her parents naturally start to panic at the idea of their daughter dating, while Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust all have their own views on the matter.
Is this the start of a budding romance, or will Riley have her heartbroken? We'll have to wait to find out.
The ending to Toy Story 3 seemed pretty final when it closed with a sense of nostalgia and love on its vision of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the Andy toy gang. In fact, it felt like it had to be the end since Woody and the whole collection were 'set free' by Andy to be the playthings of another child altogether. So where do you go with Toy Story 4?
Apparently in the direction of a love story.
While chatting at Disney’s D23 celebrations, John Lasseter, director of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, as well as chief creative officer of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, revealed where they’re taking the fourth film. By commanding the directorial reins again, Toy Story 4 will be Lasseter’s first personally helmed film since Cars 2, »
Pixar sure does love its sequels these days. Cars 2, Monsters University, Finding Dory, Toy Story 1-4 (yes, there's a fourth in the works), and now... Inside Out 2? Kind of. Riley's First Date is a short film that takes place one year after the movie and will be making its debut as an extra on the home video release of Inside Out. The title is pretty self-explanatory, so you should have a good idea of what's in store, but Yahoo has a clip that showcases the running...

Riley's First Date is a short film that takes place one year after the movie and will be making its debut as an extra on the home video release of Inside Out. The title is pretty self explanatory so you should have a good idea of what's in store, but Yahoo has a clip that showcases the running thoughts of Riley and her family when a boy shows up at her door. It's cute and simple and honestly probably about as extensive of a "sequel" as we'd like to see to Inside Out right now. What makes the movie so brilliant is how it breaks down a pivotal moment in a young person's...

This year will give us two new Pixar films. Whether The Good Dinosaur will best Inside Out remains to be seen, but the trailer is certainly full of all the elements that make for an entertaining animated family film. There’s the characters that kids can root for in Arlo and his human friend, as well as identify with if they tend to feel a little alone sometimes »

Pixar's latest animated feature Inside Out is continuing to go from success to success.
After topping the UK box office last weekend and battling with Jurassic World for the top spot in the Us earlier in July, Disney's Pixar now has more to celebrate as Inside Out passes the $600 million worldwide box office mark.
Inside Out review: Pixar's charming take on childhood
The global total for the film currently stands at $602.29 million, with the domestic market generating $329.59 million while $272.7 million came from the international market, Deadline reports.
There is joy and wonder in this marvelous mounting of a human mind, and a thrilling audacity in how it dares at such a strange and impossible thing. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Pixar’s films
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I have some misgivings about this Inside Out movie. Only five emotions in a little girl’s head? Only Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness? Maybe things will get more complicated when she’s an older girl… but even the grownups here have only those five emotions. I dunno about that. Cuz in my not-little-girl head right now, Doubt is telling me “There’s no way you can do justice to this movie, so don’t even bother trying,” and Procrastination is agreeing, saying, “See? It was right to put off writing this review. Let’s put it off some more, »

Pixar returns to form with a dazzlingly imaginative adventure set inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl
The new Pixar animation Inside Out could easily have been called Out There. It’s as bizarre, imaginative and authentically psychedelic as anything produced in mainstream animation. At this point in the fortunes of the once-infallible creative powerhouse, you wouldn’t have bet on Pixar coming up with anything very outré. Bought by Disney in 2006, the studio hadn’t produced anything truly inspired that wasn’t a sequel since Up in 2009. Given the humdrum quality of Cars 2 and Monsters University and 2012’s well-intentioned but forgettable Brave, it seemed as if the studio had lost its penchant for exotic risk.
But Inside Out is in the top rank of Pixar productions with its combination of audacity, intelligence, wit and emotional reward. Directed and co-written by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc and Up) and co-directed by Ronnie del Carmen, »
