There aren’t many things in this world that have the ability to generate as much giddy excitement as a new Pixar movie. Indeed, the prospect of two releases from this famous film studio in 2015 is enough to send some fans bubbling over into delirium.
It’s all justified too, with the animation powerhouse having churned out a colourful catalogue of sleek-looking CGI films over the years all buoyed by fascinating plots that have earned commercial and critical acclaim. The good news is that two utterly unique releases from the production company are all set to hit cinemas this year.
First up is Inside Out, a fantasy-comedy due for release around June. The movie presents viewers with a peculiar concept, as the film takes place inside an 11-year-old girl’s head as her five emotions of Sadness, Joy, Disgust, Anger and Fear jostle to take over her body.

In case you were off making dinner or sipping cocktails during the commercial breaks last night, we got to see some brand new footage of Pixar.s Inside Out during SNL.s 40th anniversary special. The voices inside this young girl.s head are already delightful . except for, perhaps, Anger and Disgust . but what happens to them during a brain freeze? Pretty much the same result we get when Elsa lets it go. The SNL 40th anniversary special proved to be quite the ratings booster. Given all the to-do made over the celebrity guests and tributes, brands must have dished out some serious dough to get their commercials screened during the breaks. Though, Inside Out has Disney and Pixar money, so the price tag attached to a TV spot like this was no roadblock. In Inside Out, a young girl named Riley becomes the setting as audiences dive into the »
One of the key factors that has ensured Pixar has stayed relevant over the years is the fact that the esteemed animation studio balances financially-sound sequels with breakout new IPs. For every Toy Story 3, there’s a Wall-e. And as the company moves forward, it continues to diversify, serving up two all-new features in 2015 in the form of The Good Dinosaur and emotional drama, Inside Out.
But look further afield and you’ll happen across Pixar’s Día de los Muertos, the studio’s animation based on the world-famous Mexcian holiday. Up until this point, it’s been a project shrouded in secrecy, with nary a word of plot or casting as Pixar focuses all attention on 2015’s two aforementioned heavy-hitters, but according to Randy Newman — who has collaborated with the company on numerous projects including Finding Nemo — the upcoming project could turn out to be the studio’s very first musical. »

Randy Newman was on Classic FM this weekend and there’s no way on Earth I would ever have known this if Film Divider hadn’t listened in and transcribed some of what he said. I’m always far too busy not being scared of Radio 3 to ever give Classic FM the time of day.
From what he said, it doesn’t seem entirely like Newman is on the best terms with Pixar. A terrible shame because their working relationship had been yielding some amazing results.
“I’m not so sure I don’t have a reputation for being a little trouble,” Newman said, adding “Lee Unkrich isn’t going to use me, I don’t think.”
Use him for what? For the studio’s first musical. That’s what Newman says in any case, though he gives no details.

Allison Burnett is a rarity in Hollywood. He is not just a successful Hollywood screenwriter, a respected novelist, and a published critic and poet, but also a film director. His new film, Ask Me Anything, which he wrote and directed based on his own novel Undiscovered Gyrl, was released two weeks ago in selected theaters and on all digital platforms. It stars Martin Sheen, Christian Slater, Justin Long, and, in the lead role, luminous newcomer Britt Robertson. Recently I sat down with Allison in his Los Angeles home to discuss the challenges of indie filmmaking in general, as well as the difficulties with his leading lady that has caught the attention of the national media.
Alilson Burnett: To me the great allure of directing is creative control. »
