Latest Wreck-It Ralph 2 Peek Follows Vanellope Inside the Internet

Disney has unveiled its 2018 movie preview, which includes a brand new photo from the highly-anticipated sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, arriving in theaters this November. This image essentially visualizes the Internet itself, featuring Ralph being bombarded with pop-up ads, while Vanellope runs off to explore another corner of the world wide web. Along with this photo, Disney has also released the official synopsis, which you can check out below.

"Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 leaves Litwaks' video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet-which may or may not survive Ralph's wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope's video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph

Nativity 4 is heading to cinemas this Christmas

Simon Brew Jan 16, 2018

Nativity Rocks! is set to land in cinemas in November...

Following three hit films and a musical version touring the UK at the end of last year, it turns out that there’s still more life in the Nativity series. For it seems as though a fourth film, by the name of Nativity Rocks!, is heading into cinemas this year.

The first Nativity is a charming Christmas movie, although we can’t say we were fans of the two sequels. Still, you can’t argue with the box office, and thus the new film is going to land in cinemas on November 23rd 2018. That's a week before the Wreck-It Ralph sequel arrives in British cinemas.

Debbie Isitt will be writing and directing again, with Nicky Ager on composer duties, and we’d assume that production will take place in and around the Midlands in the coming months.

Wreck-It Ralph 2 Teaser Has Ralph Breaking Through the New Year

Disney has released a brand new teaser for Wreck-It Ralph 2. To help ring in the new year, Disney decided to release a brief new teaser for the highly-anticipated animated sequel. While the teaser doesn't offer much in the way of new footage, we do get to see Ralph back in action, busting his way into 2018. It also serves as a nice reminder that Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is finally coming out this year.

"This year he's going to break it #RalphBreakstheInternet"

Some footage from Wreck-It Ralph 2 first debuted last summer at Disney's D23 Expo, with some footage making its way online, but we've yet to see an actual teaser trailer released. Since the movie isn't scheduled to arrive in theaters until November 21, it's likely we probably won't see one for a few months, but Disney is clearly ready to start getting fans excited about the prospect of seeing Ralph wreck-it once again.

TV Animators Tooned Up for Big Screen Features

TV Animators Tooned Up for Big Screen Features
The creative lines between film and television are blurring ever more frequently these days, with many live-action directors, writers and other talent moving with increasing ease between the two media. But in the animation industry, only a handful of directors and writers have made the transition.

One of those is Rich Moore, who is directing Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” alongside Phil Johnston and who earlier this year won the animated feature Oscar for Disney’s 2016 hit “Zootopia” with director Byron Howard. Moore has an extensive background in TV animation, working on “The Simpsons,” “The Critic” and “Futurama” for many years before making his feature directing debut on the first “Wreck-It Ralph” film in 2012.

Moore himself realizes he’s part of a rare breed.

“I’ve noticed that, too, and it’s a shame because there are some amazing TV directors out there who should be making features,” says Moore. “If

Box Office: ‘Coco’ Surges in China With $44 Million in Second Weekend
Disney-Pixar’s animated comedy “Coco” dazzled Chinese moviegoers with $44.2 million in its second weekend, more than double its opening launch.

“Coco” posted the second highest weekend ever for an animated release in China behind only Disney’s “Zootopia.” The film has totaled $75.6 million after 10 days and become the highest grossing Pixar release ever in China and third highest Disney animated release after “Zootopia” and “Big Hero 6.”

“Coco” took in a total of $69 million in 33 international territories during the weekend, lifting its international total to $171.3 million. That figure includes $55.6 million in Mexico, where it set a record following its release in late October to coincide with that nation’s Day of the Dead celebrations.

“Coco” scored first-place launches in France, Germany and Spain this weekend, led by $6.4 million in France (including previews), more than double the openings of both “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Big Hero 6.” Spain opened with $2.8 million, ahead of “Moana” and “Big Hero 6” and Germany

40 movies we need to see in 2018

Simon Brew Ryan Lambie Jan 19, 2018

Welcome to our annual list of big films to see at the cinema. We'll tirelessly update it with our reviews all year long...

If 2017 was something of a bumper year for film, then there’s plenty to suggest that 2018 will also be something rather special. So much so, in fact, that we’ve expanded our preview list to 40, and still couldn’t fit everything in.

Here, though, is a slice of what lies ahead…

40. Venom

Sony is finally launching its spin-off collection of Spider-Man movies in 2018, with three films currently planned at the time of writing. The first of those is Venom, that sees Tom Hardy taking the lead role (rather than Topher Grace, who played the character not entirely successfully in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3). Ruben Fleischer, still best known for Zombieland,

John Lasseter’s Legacy: Why the Tarnished CG Animation Pioneer May Be Irreplaceable For Disney and Pixar

John Lasseter’s Legacy: Why the Tarnished CG Animation Pioneer May Be Irreplaceable For Disney and Pixar
At last week’s “Coco” premiere at the El Capitan in Hollywood, John Lasseter had a look of sadness in his eyes. The usual gregarious charm didn’t come as easily. Maybe he was tired: he’d been running both Pixar and Disney Animation as chief creative officer for the last 11 years.

That was the explanation when Lasseter first stepped down as director of “Toy Story 4” earlier this year. Then came Tuesday’s shocking revelation of alleged unwanted advances, forcing the animation mogul — who was known for his warm hugs — to take a six-month leave of absence from the studios, apologizing for “missteps” in a memo to his Disney/Pixar staff.

Lasseter, by far the most powerful and influential figure in contemporary animation, joins a growing list of big-name players in Hollywood, the media, and politics accused of sexual misconduct (including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Rose). This

John Lasseter Takes Leave of Absence From Disney/Pixar, Apologizes for Unwanted Hugs

John Lasseter Takes Leave of Absence From Disney/Pixar, Apologizes for Unwanted Hugs
John Lasseter, the head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios and one of the most powerful figures in the entertainment industry, acknowledged Tuesday that he had crossed the line with employees. He is taking a six-month leave of absence.

Lasseter sent a memo to staff apologizing for making employees feel disrespected or uncomfortable, Variety has confirmed.

“That was never my intent,” he wrote. “Collectively, you mean the world to me, and I deeply apologize if I have let you down. I especially want to apologize to anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of an unwanted hug or any other gesture they felt crossed the line in any way, shape, or form.”

Lasseter is taking a leave as several prominent Hollywood figures are grappling with allegations of sexual harassment. His name has continued to be mentioned privately, with a number of former Pixar employees telling Variety that he has behaved inappropriately and describing a culture

Hospital Transforms Kids' Wheelchairs Into Dream Halloween Costumes: 'This Should Be Magical for Everyone'

Trick-or-treating while in a wheelchair wasn’t easy last year for 5-year-old Penny Ryan, who had to wait on the sidewalk for her siblings to bring her candy, then try to catch up with friends in her Sandy, Utah, neighborhood.

“Just maneuvering the wheelchair and trying to figure out how to incorporate it into a costume was difficult,” says the preschooler’s mom, Ashley Ryan, 34, a mother of three. “And a lot of times, Penny felt as though as she was watching the fun from the sidelines.”

While I believe Sarah Silverman can be pretty hit-or-miss, I do genuinely like her in things. She was great in Wreck-it Ralph, and did a pretty good job in the upcoming Battle Of The Sexes.

Disney's Jack and the Beanstalk Animated Movie Is Dead

Disney's Jack and the Beanstalk Animated Movie Is Dead
After spending more than two years in development, Disney is giving the axe to its Jack and the Beanstalk project Gigantic. Disney has yanked the November 25, 2020 release date for this Jack and the Beanstalk musical, with the studio stating that they hit a creative wall, so to speak, with the project. Here's what Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull had to say about why they pulled the plug on Gigantic.

"It's impossible to know when we begin a project how the creative process will unfold, and sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn't working. With Gigantic, we've come to that point, and although it's a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now. We are focusing our energies on another project that has been in the works, which we'll be sharing more about soon,

Disney Cancels Their Jack and the Beanstalk Animated Film Gigantic

Disney Animation has been developing and new animated film project called Gigantic that was supposed to be released in 2020. The movie would have been a reimagining of the classic fairytale story Jack and the Beanstalk the story of which followed a man meeting a young female giant.

To be honest, I was never excited about this movie anyway. Jack and the Beanstalk has been retold so many different times that another retelling just didn't interest me. Here's a previously released description of the movie:

Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, Disney’s Gigantic follows adventure-seeker Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within the clouds. He hatches a grand plan with a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl, and agrees to help her find her way home. But he doesn’t account for her super-sized personality – and who knew giants were so down to earth?

Disney Animation Ditches Jack and the Beanstalk Movie ‘Gigantic’

Disney Animation Ditches Jack and the Beanstalk Movie ‘Gigantic’
Walt Disney Animation Studios has dropped development of “Gigantic,” its adaptation of the classic fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk.”

“Sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn’t working,” said Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull.”With ‘Gigantic,’ we’ve come to that point, and although it’s a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now.

Disney had announced “Gigantic” at the studio’s D23 Expo in 2015 with “Tangled’s” Nathan Greno directing and Dorothy McKim producing. “Frozen” songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez were on board to write the music for the film with husband-wife singing one of the songs at the event.

Battle of the Sexes movie review: totally ace

MaryAnn’s quick take… An essential history lesson with a smart smack of relevance for today (because feminism always has to be relitigated). It’s also warm, funny, and hugely entertaining. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): not a sports fan at all

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

That saying about those not remembering the past being condemned to repeat it? Of course it’s true… but sometimes it’s not an accident that the past gets forgotten. Sometimes the squashing of history — and the continuation of history into the present — is deliberate. Feminists know this: Women are constantly having to reinvent feminism, refight the same battles, because they don’t stay won. A brief moment of small triumph very quickly gets drowned out by major cultural pushback; women may savor victory only long enough

There's a Reason the Actress Behind Pocahontas Looks So Much Like Her Character

Can you believe it has been 22 years since Walt Disney Pictures gifted us with the animated film Pocahontas? Neither can we, and it's honestly making us super nostalgic. While we still remember every single word to "Colors of the Wind," most fans probably don't know who voiced the original character. Well, plot twist: it was actually two people. While Tony-nominee Judy Kuhn lent her singing voice for the role, Irene Bedard was the main inspiration behind the Disney princess. Not only did the Native American actress voice Pocahontas, but she was also the physical model for the character. And the Disney magic doesn't end there. Bedard, along with several other princesses, will star in the upcoming the Wreck-It Ralph sequel in March 2018.

The Emoji Movie Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Hannah Woodhead

Generally speaking, most titles at least have some redeeming features if you squint hard enough, or they manage to slip into so-bad-it’s-kind-of-good territory. Yet once in a while, something comes along that’s so ill-conceived, there’s no other phrase for it: The Emoji Movie is just bad.

In your smartphone exists a world called Textopolis (apparently that’s the best they could come up with), where all the emojis live. These emojis have one job and one job alone: portraying the emotion or item that they’re assigned. Our protagonist is a ‘Meh’ emoji called Gene, who is unable to stick to being ‘Meh’, much to his parents’ chagrin. With the help of an obnoxious high-five emoji voiced by James Corden, he sets out to locate a hacker emoji (eh?) who can help him get ‘reprogrammed’.

Straight off the bat, there are striking similarities to Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph.
