7 alternative Disney Princesses from Star Wars, Pretty Woman and more

27 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A classic fairy tale is brought back to life this month with the release of Disney's new live-action Cinderella movie. Downton Abbey's Lily James is the latest star to become a Disney Princess, donning the glass slippers to take on the title role for director Kenneth Branagh.

Though Cinderella is very much a princess in the traditional mould, the ever-expanding Disney tendrils mean that new female characters are being inducted into the studio's roster all the time. The House of Mouse now owns Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar, and when you add the studio's Touchstone Pictures arm into the mix there's a wealth of memorable movies out there.

Everyone knows about Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora and the rest, but Digital Spy wants to highlight those who are part of the extended Disney Princess family. Read on to see our alternative choices below...

Exclusive Interview: Alan Tudyk Talks ‘Con Man’ And ‘Firefly’

25 March 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is a well-known fact here at Thn that I’m somewhat a fan of Firefly. The sci-fi western starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk combined a great world, intriguing narrative and some utterly brilliant characters with a typically snappy Joss Whedon script. What’s not to love? Who knows, but Firefly was cancelled after a limited run in 2002, despite its Browncoat army of fans protests.

Since the show’s farewell movie Serenity, Joss Whedon has successfully assembled The Avengers on the silver screen already and is overseeing the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while it’s cast has been busy on films like I, Robot, Dodgeball and Wreck-it Ralph, not to mention starring in hit shows Castle, Suits and Homeland. Had everybody moved on and forgotten their love of Firefly and its cast? Of course not!

Watch the First 'Pixels' Trailer: Adam Sandler Wants to Kill Beloved Video Game Characters

18 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Even if you didn't grow up in the 1980s, the first trailer for Pixels is bound to stir nostalgic memories of all the great video games from the first generation of joystick madness. How is that possible? Well, Pac-Man and Donkey Kong quickly became hugely iconic characters, and the games in which they starred were highly influential on the games that followed, inspiring dozens of imitators and hooking just about everybody who played them, whether in an arcade or at home on the new-fangled cartridge game systems. That influence has only grown over the years, even as video games have been increasingly complex and the graphics have developed tremendous and realistic beauty. Back in 2012, Disney's Wreck-It Ralph played off that fond nostalgia with an empathetic look at...

Game Over for Adam Sandler in first trailer for ‘Pixels’

18 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Does anyone else get the sense that Hollywood still doesn’t quite “get” video games in 2015? If you look at the movies it’s all still feeding quarters into a machine, getting a high score, winning a new life, joystick flailing, button mashing, and old 32-bit side-scrollers with wacky sound effects. Yeah, there’s Wreck-It Ralph and a few other good examples, but then you look at something like Pixels, and the movies still have a lot of catching up to do to where games are today.

Pixels, directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter, Home Alone) stars Adam Sandler as an ’80s video game champion tasked by the President (Kevin James) to fight off invading aliens taking the form of classic ’80s games like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. And though I wouldn’t put it past Hollywood to make a dark, gritty reimagining of Space Invaders or Missile Control as »

Watch Now: Awesome First ‘Pixels’ Trailer

17 March 2015 10:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Any mention of Adam Sandler in a movie and I’m immediately cautious. Tell me he co-stars with Kevin James and I’m out. So it says a lot about the first trailer for Sony’s Pixels that I am genuinely interested and a little excited. The film sees aliens use classic video game characters in order to invade our planet, after believing a time capsule sent into space by Nasa in 1982 was actually an act of war. If it sounds silly, that’s because it is, and it embraces that fact.

Sandler and James, along with Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage, play our last hope against the invading aliens. The film looks like a mixture between Wreck-it Ralph and Ghostbusters, and certainly seems to get the action/comedy balance right. Chris Columbus, of Home Alone and Harry Potter And The Philosopher’S Stone fame, directs, and the »

Home review

14 March 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

DreamWorks Animation now only has one release in 2015, and this is it. So how does Home fare? Here's our review...

I'm not the first to have noticed that your chances of getting a project through the DreamWorks Animation pipeline seem greatly enhanced if you're telling a story about a nerdy outsider, or someone who struggles to fit in. In recent times along, Mr Peabody & Sherman, Turbo and The Croods have all traded on this to some degree. Home very much does as well.

In this case, the outside is Oh (voiced well by Jim Parsons), a misfit who - for reasons I never really bought - isn't that well liked by his people, the Boov. The Boov are led by Captain Smekday (and the film in turn is based on the book The True Meaning Of Smekday, by Adam Rex). Said Captain leads the Boov in their quest to run »

There are strong “rumblings” of Big Hero 6 sequel

13 March 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having passed the $600 million mark over the weekend and in the wake of the news of Frozen 2 getting the green light, it seems rather likely that Big Hero 6 will also be getting a sequel. And if you ask Genesis Rodriguez (who plays Honeylemon in the movie), it’s a strong possibility.

“There’s rumblings of something else happening,” Rodriguez told Screenrant. “I mean yesterday I just saw that it’s the third most grossing Disney animated feature, so this is huge for them. I doubt that they wouldn’t want to do another one. It was a huge success.”

“Just like comic books, you could make it a complete different story and the superheroes reunited to attack someone else,” she continues. “So it’s a perfect little setup they got for a sequel if they wanted to.”

Grading Mojo's Holiday Forecast

11 March 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

As is tradition here at Box Office Mojo, we made domestic box office predictions for holiday 2014 releases ahead of the start of the season. Now that those movies are essentially at the end of their runs, it's time to grade that forecast.As usual, there were a healthy set of very accurate predictions (Big Hero 6, Into the Woods, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb), along with a handful that were laughably inaccurate (Exodus: Gods & Kings, Horrible Bosses 2).For each title, we will list the domestic forecast, the actual gross (in most cases an estimate) and the percentage difference [(Actual-Forecast)/Forecast]. Each prediction will be assigned a grade on the following arbitrary scale: A (less than 10% difference), B (10-19.9%), C (20-29.9%), D (30-39.9%) and F (over 40%).The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1Forecast: $385 millionActual: $337 million (est.)Difference: -13%Grade: BThe previous Hunger Games movies each earned over $408 million at »

Disney's 'Zootopia' renamed 'Zootropolis' for UK

11 March 2015 6:49 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Walt Disney Animation Studios also reveals UK release date.

Zootopia, the next feature to be released by Walt Disney Animation Studios, has been renamed Zootropolis for its UK release.

A spokesman for Disney explained: “In the UK we decided to change the Us title (Zootopia) to Zootropolis to merely allow the film to have a unique title that works for UK audiences.”

Disney also revealed that the animated feature will receive its UK theatrical release on March 25, 2016. It is set for Us release on March 4, 2016.

The film is based in the animal city of Zootopia, where optimistic new police officer Judy Hopps discovers that being the first rabbit on a force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy.

Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

The comedy adventure is directed by Byron Howard ([link »

Video Game Movies Are Improving, But Why Have They Been So Terrible

9 March 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

When I was young I was fascinated with video games. I still am to this day, but I had a passion burning that had me wanting to make games. I still dream of one day entering that E3 stage, but things turned a bit for me. I grew up during a time that was still developing game design, and programming. So I didn’t have a lot for me. What I did have was film, so I transitioned into making movies since I figured it was the closest thing to making video games. Yet to this day I still fight to bridge the two industries because the film industry simply does not accept videogames. This is why I believe video game movies are so terrible.

Big Hero 6 passes $600 million worldwide; third highest grossing Disney movie of all-time

9 March 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Baymax may not be fast, but he’s certainly bringing home the big bucks as Big Hero 6 passed a huge milestone over the weekend.

Now that the movie is out in most major territories following a late-2014 release in the Us, Disney’s Big Hero 6 has become the studio’s third highest grossing animated movie of all time as it passes the $600 million mark. The film made $19.6 million, most of which came from its second week of release in China.

The Oscar winning animated movie has overtaken Tangled ($591 million) but is unlikely to catch up with the musical behemoth Frozen, which sits at $1.2 billion, or The Lion King ($987.5 million).

From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph comes Big Hero 6, an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax, a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada. When a devastating event »

Next year, Walt Disney Animation Studios will debut two very unique new adventures, with the animal-centric Zootopia hitting on March 4 and the Polynesian Princess fairytale Moana opening November 23rd. Today, Disney invites us into Zootopia with a beautiful piece of concept art that shows off this unique city unto itself. The&#160comedy teams Bolt and Tangled director Byron Howard with Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore, with Jared Bush co-directing.

Zootopia is a modern mammal metropolis like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together, a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy.

It's A Shame The Academy Still Doesn't Respect Animation

23 February 2015 12:16 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Everybody knows the Oscars is a bunch of old people that are as predictable as an elephant in an ocean. In other words, who knows what they will do and why. Well deserving films get pushed aside because they gain too much popularity, or best actors simply don’t win. Whatever, it is all opinion, but there is still one major problem I have. Their utter disrespect for animated films

I thought maybe this year would be slightly different, and it wasn’t. It all started a few months ago when the Academy announced their nominations, and to my surprise some key films were not even mentioned. The Lego Movie, which was debatable, felt totally forgotten. An amazing masterpiece of a film in The Book of Life also not mentioned. The second of those movies could have been mentioned for a lot more than being a good film. Best set »
