Toy Story 4 release date confirmed

After undergoing a change in both directors and screenwriters, it seems that Disney-Pixar is now moving full steam ahead with Toy Story 4, with the studio posting the following teaser image to Facebook, as well as confirming that Woody, Buzz and the gang will be back in cinemas on June 21st, 2019.

Toy Story 4 hasn’t had the smoothest of starts; first announced in 2014 with a provisional June 2017 release date, the movie was originally slated to be directed by John Lasseter (Toy Story, Toy Story 2) from a script by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, who left the project due to “creative and philosophical differences” with the studio.

Jones denied that the split had anything to do with an unwanted advance from Lasseter, who also handed over directing duties to Pixar veteran Josh Cooley as he took a sabbatical from his role as chief creative officer after acknowledging “missteps” in his behaviour towards women.

John Oliver Trolls Mike Pence With a Book About Gay Bunnies

John Oliver Trolls Mike Pence With a Book About Gay Bunnies
On Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” the host returned to one of his favorite on-air pastimes — trolling the Trump administration.

This time, his target was Vice President Mike Pence, who has been criticized for his stances on Lgbt issues, especially when he was governor of Indiana. Oliver admitted that there was one thing he still liked about Pence, which is his pet rabbit named Marlon Bundo, which the comedian said was “an objectively good name for a bunny.”

“Marlon Bundo is the most likeable thing about an otherwise unlikeable man,” Oliver said during the segment. “Like how George W.

Watch John Oliver Troll Mike Pence With Gay Bunny Book

Reality star and former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault once warned on Celebrity Big Brother that "we would be begging for the days of Trump back if [Mike Pence] became president." John Oliver summarized the vice president's narrow, evangelical vision for the U.S. – including his opposition to abortion and gay rights – on Sunday's Last Week Tonight.

The comedian opened by reminding viewers that, unlike many other fired members of the Trump administration, our vice president is here for the long haul. "While in many ways, Pence is like any Trump employee – ethically compromised,

John Oliver Slams Mike Pence’s Homophobia by Writing and Selling A Children’s Book About His Gay Pet Rabbit

John Oliver Slams Mike Pence’s Homophobia by Writing and Selling A Children’s Book About His Gay Pet Rabbit
John Oliver turned his attention to Vice President Mike Pence during the March 18 episode of “Last Week Tonight.” The takedown ended in the surprise announcement that Oliver and his HBO team wrote an actual children’s book about Pence’s pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo, growing up as a gay rabbit and falling in love with a male hare. Pence is outspokenly homophobic; he supports gay conversion therapy and once backed a law that would legalize discrimination against gay people.

Oliver’s book, “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo,” is written in direct opposition of Pence with its “message of tolerance and advocacy” that “explores issues of marriage equality and democracy.” The book is available to purchase right now and the show will donate 100% of the book’s proceeds to The Trevor Project and AIDS United.

The book is available as a hard copy and an audiobook via Audible.

Film Review: ‘Where Have You Gone, Lou Dimaggio?’

Film Review: ‘Where Have You Gone, Lou Dimaggio?’
Trying to disprove the maxim that you can’t go home again, the real-life comedian of the title attempts to reignite his faded stand-up career in “Where Have You Gone, Lou Dimaggio?” — a documentary whose life lessons are as predictable as they are slight. Brad Kuhlman’s film depicts Dimaggio’s quest as amounting to very little, as the comic spends more time reminiscing with old friends and providing a brief history lesson about the New York comedy scene than actually getting in front of an audience. As a fond look back at a particular milieu, the doc has its minor charms, but it’s far too narrow to resonate outside its niche target audience.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, Dimaggio (no relation to Yankees star Joltin’ Joe) was a rising talent and fixture at Manhattan’s Catch a Rising Star, the launch pad for future luminaries such as Robin Williams,

‘My Annie Hall,’ A Charming Short Film Starring Senior Citizens, Has Woody Allen’s Blessing

‘My Annie Hall,’ A Charming Short Film Starring Senior Citizens, Has Woody Allen’s Blessing
A pair of twenty-something filmmakers made a 30-minute short called “My Annie Hall,” starring members of a New York City senior center. Matt Starr and Ellie Sachs did not seek writer-director Woody Allen’s approval to use copyrighted material from “Annie Hall” — the winner of four Oscars, including Best Picture of 1978 — but received it nonetheless. Allen’s publicist told The New York Times via email that the 82-year-old auteur “thought it was funny,” and “saw no reason to interfere with those seniors’ enjoyment of life.”

The project began after Starr was pleased to learn that watching “Casablanca” with his grandmother — a dementia patient — allowed them to have a normal conversation. He and his girlfriend and fellow artist, Sachs, next led a weekly Interpretive Cinema class at the Upper East Side’s Lenox Hill Neighborhood House. They showed their students 10 classic trailers, took a vote, and then decided to make their own version of “Annie Hall.

Disaster Artist Oscar Snub Came as a Relief to James Franco?

Disaster Artist Oscar Snub Came as a Relief to James Franco?
James Franco not being recognized for his work in The Disaster Artist came as one of the biggest Oscar snubs yesterday. But a new report claims that the actor is relieved he didn't get nominated. The actor was overlooked in the Best Actor category. And many in the industry believed it's because of the sexual misconduct accusations that broke after the actor won his Golden Globes award. There's also the fact that he's playing a character from one of the worst movies of all time, and essentially mimicking that persona, which some claim was a turn off for Oscar voters.

Many believed that James Franco was the top contender for Oscar glory this coming March at the 90th Academy Awards. And it was shocking, but not too surprising, that he wasn't mentioned as the nominations were read aloud Tuesday morning. The actor also directed The Disaster Artist, and went unnoticed in that category too.

2018 PGA Awards: All the nominees in the 3 film and 9 TV categories for Producers Guild of America prizes

The Producers Guild of America hands out its awards on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018. That is the night before the Screen Actors Guild does the same. Unlike, the latter, which will air on TNT and TBS, the PGA ceremony is not televised. However, it is an equally important stop on the road to the Oscars.

The PGA Awards has an enviable track record at presaging the eventual Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards. The guild and the academy have agreed on 19 of the most recent 28 Best Picture champs. Last year, all nine Oscar nominees for Best Picture numbered among the 10 PGA contenders; only “Deadpool” was snubbed by the academy. The PGA prize went to “La La Land” while the Oscar was (eventually) won by “Moonlight.”

SAG Awards predictions secret: Size matters for comedies like ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Desperate Housewives’ …
When it comes to rewarding the best comedic cast on television, the SAG Awards often simply go with the biggest cast. Recent winners like “Orange is the New Black” (2014-2016), “Glee” (2009), “Desperate Housewives” (2004-2005) and “Ally McBeal” (1998) all prevailed thanks in part to having the most cast members on the voting ballot. Interestingly enough, all four of these were also hour-long dramedies, which suggests SAG voters are more apt to give the prize to large casts when they’re also in large productions.

What does this statistic mean in terms of predicting the 2018 SAG Awards? “Orange is the New Black” once again boasts the biggest comedy cast with a record-setting 45 men and women nominated for the Netflix prison series. That’s up from 37 cast members in 2016, 34 in 2015, and 40 in 2014. Of this year’s other nominated ensembles, Netflix’s “Glow” consists of 18 cast members, followed by HBO’s “Veep” at 15, ABC
