Pixar’s Sequel Problem: Studio Tells Audiences Not to Worry About Franchises in Its Slate — Sf International Film Festival

Pixar’s Sequel Problem: Studio Tells Audiences Not to Worry About Franchises in Its Slate — Sf International Film Festival
While Disney’s animation unit continues to operate out of its lot in Burbank, Pixar never moved in. Eleven years after the beloved company was acquired by Disney, Pixar continues to operate out of its campus in the Bay Area, much of its staff has worked there for decades, and it enjoys a fair amount of autonomy from the parent company.

However, one major development has stood out in Pixar’s post-Disney life: Sequels. Prior to the Disney acquisition, Pixar had only produced one sequel to its treasured slate — “Toy Story 2,” which didn’t tarnish the brand — but it has made four sequels since the acquisition (“Toy Story 3,” “Cars 2,” “Monsters University” and “Finding Dory”). What’s more, three of the four Pixar movies slated to be released in the next two years are sequels: “Cars 3” in 2017, “The Incredibles 2” in 2018 and “Toy Story 4” in 2019. For

The Merc With a Mouth isn’t a character to play by the rulebook, so it’s almost fitting that Deadpool, the scrappy little underdog that arguably became 2016’s biggest success story, has flipped the bird at convention to collect a series of nominations during the most prestigious period on the Hollywood calendar: awards season.

Marquee blockbusters, particularly those based on comic book characters, often struggle to make much of a dent on the awards circuit, but to date, Tim Miller’s R-rated solo movie has landed a Golden Globes nomination and, perhaps most surprising of all, a nomination for a Writer’s Guild Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Now, you can add the PGAs to Deadpool‘s growing collection.

The Producers Guild Awards are an incredibly important pre-cursor to the Oscars.

Today's announcement means there's a chance for a few underdog films to get that prestigious Best Picture nomination, and the most surprising of the bunch is Deadpool. Deadpool has been picking up a lot of awards steam lately, between this and its Writers Guild Award nomination. A Best Picture Oscar nomination would be unprecedented, as superhero films, let alone R-Rated comedic ones, have never been awards contenders. It's exciting to consider that the awards conversation can shift to more mainstream films, because if you ask the majority of audiences, a lot of them would call Deadpool one of their favourite films of the year.

Also among the nominations are the same movies we've been hearing about all through awards season,

BAFTA loves “La La Land” and the Producers Guild of America nominations are revealed

Moments ago, the Producers Guild of America (or PGA) announced their nominations. This comes on the heels of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (better known as BAFTA) announcing their nominees in the wee early hours. Between BAFTA and PGA, a few pieces of the precursor puzzle have been put together. The Oscars still have a bunch of mystery to them, but you can make the case that the Best Picture lineup will strongly reflect what the Producers Guild opted to do. I doubt there will be 100% correlation, since there usually isn’t, but the majority of those cited likely will show up. Especially the ones also cited by the British Academy, their week is off to a strong start, no question about it. Both of these precursors are notable because they do indeed contain crossover with the Academy. As such, BAFTA and PGA actually matter more when

Blu-ray Review – Finding Dory (2016)

Finding Dory, 2016.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane.

Featuring the voice talents of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olsen, Ty Burrell, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Bob Peterson, Kate McKinnon, Sloane Murray, Bill Hader, Sigourney Weaver, Brad Garrett, Allison Janney, Vicki Lewis, Austin Pendleton, Stephen Root, and Willem Dafoe.

Synopsis:

Pixar continues its string of great animated movies with Finding Dory, which successfully continues the Finding Nemo story in a way that doesn’t feel like a cash grab. This set, which includes two Blu-rays and a DVD, has a nice smattering of bonus features, although a solid making-of documentary is conspicuously missing.

I had a couple young children when Finding Nemo came out, so the film hit me between the eyes as a parent (and still does, since my wife and I had another child a few years later). Its

Finding Dory: Andrew Stanton and Lindsey Collins interview

Simon Brew Jul 28, 2016

The director and producer of Finding Dory talk to us about the Finding Nemo sequel, Pixar, John Carter, and hard cash.

Finding Dory swims (had to be done) into UK cinemas this weekend, with it already breaking records at the box office in the Us, and earning no shortage of acclaim too.

Ahead of Pixar’s latest landing in the UK, we had the chance to chat to writer/director Andrew Stanton, and producer Lindsey Collins, about the new movie…

I think Finding Dory is important. The parent in me was delighted to find a film where the central character had something that really mattered about them. It brought back Vanellope in Wreck-It Ralph in that here you had this character with a flaw as such, but one tackled with positivity. What kind of reactions have you seen to the character of Dory specifically, and the core

Exclusive Interview – Andrew Stanton and Lindsey Collins talk Finding Dory, Ellen DeGeneres and Pixar sequels

After already conquering the Us box office, this week finally sees Pixar’s long-anticipated sequel Finding Dory arrive on UK shores, and to celebrate the release Flickering Myth’s Scott J. Davis had the chance to sit down with the film’s writer-director Andrew Stanton and producer Lindsey Collins to discuss the sequel and what the future holds for Pixar.

Thirteen years is a long time to wait for a sequel but from Stanton’s point of view, it wasn’t because there wasn’t an appetite from the audience for a sequel it was more that he and Pixar never thought there was story to tell until around the time of Finding Nemo’s 3D release in 2011 when it all changed:

“Everyone takes that tactic like we were truly waiting all that time but the truth is I was never going back – I had no intention of going back to the ocean.
