Every year, there are certain patterns in film and TV that arise from marketing, cultural trends or simple financial success. Naturally, the Internet has become better and better at pointing these out, often through supercuts and video edits. Though we’re only a few weeks into 2017, there are plenty of these patterns to be sussed out, even if they’re only from movie trailers.

The YouTube account CinemaRaven has posted a video that compiles clips from 2017 movie trailers that feature the same sound effect: “a descending low digital drop,” in his words. Though some of the “drops” vary, many are exactly the same and all attempt to build tension (in an utterly contrived fashion) in order to best sell tickets for Hollywood’s big-budget films. Watch the video below.
The video features plenty of trailers for upcoming films. »

In other words: sequels are back, baby!
Last year saw the Death of the Sequel. So many follow-ups to hit movies and new installments of popular franchises bombed hard. Many of them surprisingly. Outside of some extreme exclusions, such as Finding Dory and Captain America: Civil War, it was a bad year for familiar characters. Enough that I listed 15 properties I believe expired (in current form) in 2016.
Well, it’s a new year and a bright new day for film series. Looking ahead at the next 12 months (present included), there are more sequels, prequel-sequels, spinoffs, and other types of franchise continuations, and a lot of them look really good. Sure, last year we were excited for the Jack Reacher, Bourne, and even Independence Day sequels, but this time it’ll be different.

For years many Disney-Pixar fans have noticed familiar characters making cameos in other Pixar movies. A previous fan theory states that every Pixar film exits in the same universe, and now that theory is somewhat confirmed in a new Disney video shared on Toy Story’s official Facebook.
The clip reveals how various Pixar movies like “Wall-e,” “Toy Story,” and “Cars,” among others, are connected and reveals exactly where you can see the hidden Easter eggs. The video begins by spotlighting a little girl in “Finding Dory” who happens to be Riley from “Inside Out.”

Pixar’s known habit of hiding Easter Eggs is showcased in an official video that confirms and reveals examples.
The idea that the CGI animation wizards at Pixar insert fascinating Easter Eggs into their films, referencing their other features is hardly headline news. Indeed, many-a-listicle has been compiled by eagle-eyed Pixar experts identifying the proverbial Where’s Waldo? Pixar elements hidden in plain sight within seemingly innocuous scenes. However, in what might be considered a top-secret document dump, the studio has released a remarkable video montage of their sneaky handiwork.
If Pixar’s Easter Egg practice was an acuity test, then it appears that their recently unveiled video is serving quite nicely as the answers section printed upside down on the bottom of that page. However, while some Pixar-obsessed fans might have long-noticed the kind of cameos in which characters from Pixar films, past and forthcoming, appear as toys and props, »
After a long time in development and a lot of uncertainty, the Tupac Shakur biopic is finally coming to theaters. Morgan Creek Entertainment recently closed a deal with Lionsgate's Summit Entertainment, who are now going to be releasing All Eyez On me. As exciting as that is, even more exciting for fans of the late rapper is that the movie is coming out this summer.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, All Eyez On Me is set to for release on June 16, which puts it right in the heart of the summer movie season. What makes that date even more interesting is that it will mark what would have been Tupac's 46th birthday. Sadly, he died at the age of 25 after he was shot down as he was driving away from a Mike Tyson boxing match on September 7, 1996. He died six days later from four bullet wounds that hit him in his chest, »
“All Eyez on Me” stars Demetrius Shipp, Jr., in his first movie role. The cast of the Morgan Creek movie, filmed last year in Atlanta, includes Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, Annie Ilonzeh, Dominic L. Santana, Jamal Woolard, Keith Robinson, and Cory Hardrict.
“All Eyez on Me” chronicles the life and legacy of the late Shakur, including his rise to superstardom as a hip-hop artist and actor, his imprisonment, and his time at Death Row Records.

We've long suspected that every Pixar movie from Toy Story to The Good Dinosaur takes place in the same universe. Now a new Disney Easter Egg video shows how that is possible. With a few fun transitions, a dozen interlocking Easter eggs are revealed that quickly move through the entire Pixar catalogue. And it's nothing short of amazing, especially considering some of the foresight the animators had to have to pull it all off.
Things kick off with Dory bumping into a group of school children on a trip to the local aquarium, and if you look close enough, you'll spot Riley from Inside Out in the back ground. That transitions to Inside Out, where we see how Riley fondly remembers back to her time with the dinosaur, which cleverly connects to The Good Dinosaur. This then transitions to Milo, the star of that movie, who was actually a toy »

Disney has its fair share of detractors, but few of them would point to the animation studio’s craft when criticizing the occasional sameness of its fairy tales and princess stories. Video essayist Jorge Luengo Ruiz has put together a six-minute video highlighting some of the best shots from more than 40 animated Disney offerings, from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” all the way to last year’s “Moana.” Both the video and a list of the featured movies are below.

Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker” topped social media buzz last week with an impressive 152,000 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.
The studio released the soundtrack listing on Jan. 12, three days after Taylor Swift also posted a “first look” of her soundtrack music video with Zayn Malik. PreAct estimates that a total of 1.12 million new conversations have been generated for the sequel, which opens on Feb. 10.
The sequel depicts an escalating romance between the characters played by Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) with plenty of steamy scenes and shadowy figures from Christian’s past emerging. “Fifty Shades Darker” also led the “most talked-about movies” chart during the previous week in the wake of releasing an extended trailer during the season premiere of “The Bachelor.”

What cartoon sends you spiralling into depression?
Jose: Dumbo! As a giant eared child, it brings back so many traumas.
Eric: Dumbo. When caged Mama's trunk reaches for Dumbo's trunk: merciless!
Nick: The Legend of Bagger Vance.
Kim: Toy Story 3 was a pretty traumatic viewing experience for me; I came out of the theatre with my eyes almost swollen shut from crying. (The holding hands when they all thought they were going to die, you guys!) If I harken back to a movie that sent me off the edge as a kid, I'm going to go with The Secret of Nimh. I know it Ends happily, but that movie is Dark.

Pixar’s Cars has always been considered the lesser of the legendary animation company’s output, putting jokes above heart and basically just a vehicle (I’m not apologising) to sell toys by the truckload. But then our first look at Cars 3 did something crazy and tease a slightly darker, more emotional story with Owen Wilson’s Lightning McQueen dealing with the fact that he might not have what it takes to be a race car anymore, the only life he’s ever know. A new extended look has come our way, shedding more light on that story that basically comes across as any come back sports movie you care to name. While this isn’t Pixar going gritty, it is intriguing to see them treating this red headed step child of a franchise a lot differently than we’ve previously seen.

If you thought Cars 3 would offer a darker spin on the popular Pixar series, which I kind of did after the first teaser, this new one will disappoint a bit. It turns out it’s still totally a Cars movie, but at least they went back to focusing on Lightning McQueen, which from what I heard […]

The song will also be featured in the film, which opens March 17 amid high expectations.
The ballad was originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson in the 1991 animated film. Alan Menken wrote the music and Howard Ashman wrote the lyrics for the song, which received an Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Grammy Award.
The new rendition of the song is produced by Ron Fair, who was brought in to produce by Disney’s soundtracks chief Mitchell Leib, who also brought Grande and Legend to the project. Leib and Fair have collaborated on film music dating back to the highly-successful “Pretty Woman” soundtrack.

Disney’s whimsical animated short, “Inner Workings” (playing in front of “Moana”), works like a quirkier “Inside Out” — a tug of war between logic and passion. It marks yet another innovative blend of CG and 2D, following the Oscar-winning “Feast” and “Paperman.” (Watch the exclusive clip below.)
Director Leo Matsuda takes us inside the cartoony body of a hapless clerk named Paul, whose brain nearly squashes his heart because of a neurotic fear of death.

“I’m a Japanese Brazilian, so I’m very disciplined, but I also like to party,” Matsuda told IndieWire.
At first, Matsuda toyed with the idea of using Disney’s Meander drawing program (introduced on “Paperman,” and the recipient of an Academy Sci-Tech award this year), but realized the paper texture look wasn’t appropriate. So he decided on CG »

The first teaser trailer for Cars 3 sidestepped everyone's expectations. All it consisted of was Lightning McQueen getting into a gnarly car crash followed by a promise that everything would change. It wasn't exactly the smiling, big-eyed wonderment one expects from one of Pixar's more kid-oriented franchises. But now we've got a longer trailer that shows what happens after Lightning's calamitous crash and thankfully things are looking a bit more optimistic. It's still not filled with jokes and Mater-related material that's so closely tied to the series, but it is setting up an underdog comeback story. And hey, if anyone is going to make the Rocky Balboa of anthropomorphic car movies, it's Pixar. Cars 3 hits theaters on June 16...

You know it's a good time of year when Pixar is teasing new movies. With the upcoming Cars 3, Pixar has taken a slightly darker approach but we are totally loving it.
Lightning McQueen has endured the biggest car wreck of his life and a new generation of racers are leaving him in their dust. But with a little help from trainer and racing technician Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), McQueen sets out to prove #95 is still the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be.
It will be Pixar's biggest showdown when Lightning McQueen races newcomer and top dog Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) on Piston Cup's grandest stage.
