The Tron Movie That Never Was

Tron was a film that Disney was ready to turn into the next big franchise. Not only did they spend a pretty penny on the long-awaited sequel, Tron: Legacy, but they also spent money on the TV side of things for the ambitious serialized animated series Tron: Uprising. Sadly, Tron: Legacy didn’t do so well at the box office. It made $400 million, but with its $170 million budget, it wasn’t quite enough to justify a sequel. Similarly, Tron: Uprising sort of fizzled on TV despite its decent execution, and just like that, a potential franchise sort of came and went.

This hasn’t stopped conversations about a sequel from coming out every so often. While it wasn’t a massive hit, there was a loyal fanbase for the franchise who have been hungry for years at the prospect of a new Tron film. Speaking with Collider, Tron: Legacy director

2017 Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts Review: Pixar Looms Large, But Many of These Nominees Will Make You Cry

2017 Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts Review: Pixar Looms Large, But Many of These Nominees Will Make You Cry
The Oscar for best animated short film may not generate nearly as much attention as other categories, but it strikes an exciting contrast with the more traditional forms of storytelling found throughout other categories.

These films usually celebrate animators from around the world — including a number of up-and-comers — who apply a range of visual techniques and sophisticated concepts only possible in the animated medium. This year is entirely North American, but still features a lot of different approaches — and yet, ironically, the frontrunner in the category is a very familiar name: Pixar.

Review: The 2017 Oscar-Nominated Short Films: Animation

Ahead of the Academy Awards, we’re reviewing each short category. See the Animation section below and the other shorts sections here.

Blind Vaysha – Canada – 8 minutes

I did a double take upon hearing Theodore Ushev‘s name alongside his animated short Blind Vaysha during the Oscar nominations because I’ve watched his work progress the past five years. This Canadian by way of Bulgaria is a Toronto International Film Festival staple, a guy who alters his aesthetic with every new project. Whether rotoscoping, hybridizing Cubism and Constructivism, or dabbling in Abstract Expressionism, though, you always know it’s an Ushev film because of its content and craftsmanship. His latest is no different, the adoption of woodcutting lending an old school storybook feel to a tale that speaks towards today’s climate of hope and despair. Narrated by Caroline Dhavernas, Vaysha’s story begs us to open our eyes and see

Prepare yourself for The Lego Ninjago Movie Trailer

Author: Jon Lyus

Today we have our first look at the latest brick-built CG animated film with the release of the The Lego Ninjago Movie trailer. The enormous success of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Lego Movie, and another certain box office bonanza courtesy of Chris McKay’s The Lego Batman Movie, made this new film an obvious choice.

The toy range on which this new movie is based was originally released in 2011. Quickly adding engaging characters and a cohesive world, blending modern and ancient elements, to Lego’s previous ninja set, Ninjago has spawned dozens of sets and figures. There are whole libraries of books as well as six series of animated TV adventures. A feature film based on the toy range will have a huge audience eager to catch the Masters of Spinjitzu on the big screen.

Here’s when to expect The Lego Movie Sequel, The Lego Batman Movie and more brick-based blockbusters in the UK…

Latest update: The Lego Movie Sequel delayed.

The Lego Movie was an unexpected smash hit. It raked in over $450 million worldwide from a production budget of just $60 million, nabbed an Oscar nomination for Best Song (although the Academy did somehow neglect to give it the nod in the Animation category) and inspired enough enthusiasm from Warner Bros. that the studio promptly green-lit four more Lego-themed cinematic releases.

Here’s when you can expect those four Lego movies in the UK…

Garrett Hedlund says axed Tron 3 'isn't totally dead'

Garrett Hedlund says axed Tron 3 'isn't totally dead'
Disney may have pulled the plug on Tron 3 earlier this year, but Garrett Hedlund has said that film isn't "totally dead".

The actor, who starred as Sam Flynn in Tron: Legacy, said that if a compelling story is developed, the sequel could still take place.

"I haven't been told it's totally dead," Hedlund told ComicBook.com about the film.

"Ever since we did Legacy, we knew that to have another story follow it up, it had to be concrete and exciting," he added.

"Disney needed to have the right story to go forward. I think it was going to introduce some things that were as exciting as Legacy was and then some, though."

Preparations for filming were already underway in Vancouver before Disney decided not to go ahead with Tron 3 back in May.

2010's Tron: Legacy brought the franchise to a new generation of fans, taking roughly $400 million worldwide and
