20 Pixar Fan Redesigns Way Better Than The Movies

Part of the fun of being a fan is reimagining your favorite characters in a variety of ways. What if your favorite cuddly creatures were epic superheroes? What if your favorite superheroes were regular dudes in a college dorm? What if your favorite movies took place years ago, or years into the future?

This is the beauty of fan art, as all of these types of questions can be explored thanks to the imagination of those who love the movies the most. Some redesigns take serious characters and make them sweet and light. Others go dark, imagining brutal alternate realities featuring our favorite animated characters.

This collection of eye-catching fan art takes iconic Pixar characters and imagines them in a whole new light.

The Parr family go from the brightly colored world of The Incredibles to the crushingly dark and brutal dystopic society of the future. Riley, of Inside/Out,

UK distributors will have been thrilled to see the rain this weekend.

Could ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ finally end the Oscar drought for the franchise?

Could ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ finally end the Oscar drought for the franchise?
It’s rare for a movie franchise to improve after six films over more than 20 years, but “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” the sixth film in Tom Cruise‘s spy franchise, may have done just that. As of this writing it has scored a whopping 86 on MetaCritic based on 54 reviews. That makes it the 13th highest rated movie of the year so far. It also has a 98% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is better than most Oscar nominees for Best Picture. Which begs the question, why hasn’t the “M:i” franchise even been nominated for Oscars yet?

Since they started in 1996 the “Mission: Impossible” movies have been aimed more at pleasing audiences than critics or academy members. But while it would be unusual for an action blockbuster to be the Oscars’ choice for Best Picture, you’d think it would have shown up in categories more hospitable to actioners, like Best Film Editing,

Ranking All Six ‘Mission: Impossible’ Movies

Ranking All Six ‘Mission: Impossible’ Movies
Our mission — and we decided to accept it — is to rank from least to best all six of the “Mission: Impossible” thrillers toplined by Tom Cruise as Impossible Missions Force agent Ethan Hunt.

6. Mission: Impossible III (2006)

The Pitch: When he isn’t busy wooing, and eventually wedding, Julia Meade (Michelle Monaghan), a nurse who knows nothing about his spy-guy activities, Ethan Hunt leads his Imf team in pursuit of a MacGuffinish device (known as “Rabbit’s Foot”) coveted by arms dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman).

The Rundown: Despite the game efforts of director J.J. Abrams to humanize Phelps by supplying a civilian romantic interest — and showing he’s not so ruthless that he’d make good on his threat to drop an uncooperative bad guy out of an airplane — the threepeat is a curiously bland spectacle that is nothing more than the sum of its sporadically exciting action set pieces.

20 Forgettable ’00s Animated Movies Only True Fans Remember

What are your favorite animated movies of the '00s? Some of you probably chose Finding Nemo. Others might have thought of Shrek or one of its sequels. Maybe you picked The Incredibles, or Up, or Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. If you're into international animation, you might have answered with Spirited Away or Howl's Moving Castle. Any of these responses are completely understandable. They are some of the most popular and acclaimed animated features of that decade.

They are also not what this list is about. In fact, we're going a totally different direction altogether. For every animated blockbuster released between 2000 and 2009, there is at least one that failed to stand the test of time. The reasons for this are many. Some are simply not very good. Others found their fates hampered by uncommonly tough competition at the box office. A few are just so fundamentally weird that

Review: The Incredibles 2 (2018)

In 2004 Pixar Animation Studios relished the glory days of superhero fiction in The Incredibles, which had the throwback style of a comic strip, with the memorably Jazzy score and a collection of unforgettable characters. In the years since then, the film’s relatable reflections of family life and engaging action have made it a bit of a favourite among some fans, who have passionately craved a sequel. However, director Brad Bird has remained steadfast – despite being asked countlessly – that he would only do a sequel if the story were right. Well, 14 years on and with the hype train full to busting, Incredibles 2 is finally here and thankfully, the wait was more than worth it!

From the Incrediblised Disney castle ident onwards, you sink back into this world so effortlessly that it is as though these characters never left at all. Picking up where the last film left off, you

Incredibles 2 review – riotous return of Pixar's superhero immortals

The sequel to the animated masterpiece about a family with world-saving superpowers is just as thrilling and just as much fun

The Incredibles, like The Simpsons, are eternally the same age, although for them the miracle has been brought off by just starting the sequel at the exact point the first movie left off. We are still in the Lbj 60s, superheroes are still illegal and the Incredibles’ stroppy teen daughter Violet (voiced by Sarah Vowell) is on the verge of dating that nice boy she met in school.

It is indeed incredible to think that the first film came out in 2004, just before the Marvel Studios explosion of fan-oriented superhero films changed the cultural weather, creating an audience for whom the Incredibles’ uncanonical characters and satirical deconstruction of superhero conventions are not entirely cool, however affectionately intended. But The Incredibles is for me still the greatest film from the

Movie Review – Incredibles 2 (2018)

Incredibles 2, 2018.

Directed by Brad Bird.

Featuring the voice talents of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Catherine Keener, Eli Fucile, Bob Odenkirk, Samuel L. Jackson, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini, and Jonathan Banks.

Synopsis:

Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is left to care for the kids while Helen (Elastigirl) is out saving the world.

For Mr. Incredible and co., it’s been moments. For everyone else, fourteen years, and a long one at that. The world has changed since The Incredibles redefined what a superhero film could be: an entire cinematic Universe was spawned, others came to fruition only to fall at the first hurdle, three Spider-Man’s, two Batman’s, two Superman’s. But for the Parr’s, it’s been seconds.

The Underminer has attacked and The Incredibles are in hot pursuit. As they fight to bring the Mole Man to justice, they wreck havoc, much

It’s been fourteen years in the waiting but, finally, Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 swoops into cinemas this week. The second outing for the Parr family, and their astonishing red and black-clad alter-egos, picks up exactly where the first film left off, with the arrival of the Underminer.

Incredibles 2 arrives in cinemas this Friday, 13 July. The first film was released 14 years ago. It reunites the original voices of Craig T Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L Jackson with writer/director Bird.

‘Incredibles 2′ Review

Features the voices of: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Catherine Keener, Eli Fucile, Bob Odenkirk, Samuel L. Jackson, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini, Jonathan Banks | Written and Directed by Brad Bird

In Incredibles 2, Helen (Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible…

Can Ant-Man and the Wasp Beat Jurassic World 2 at the Box Office?

Can Ant-Man and the Wasp Beat Jurassic World 2 at the Box Office?
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is going to see its reign at the top of the North American box office come to a close this weekend as the dinosaurs make way for Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp. The sequel to 2015's Ant-Man comes in the wake of Avengers: Infinity War. While it's not expected to do anywhere near what the massive McU event managed when it debuted in late April, ultimately crossing the $2 billion mark worldwide, it looks like this is going to be yet another success for Marvel Studios, who also saw Black Panther earn $1.3 billion earlier this year.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is looking at a debut of between $70 and $80 million. Even at the low end of expectations (and it's not hard to imagine it could even top what's predicted at the high end), that will put it far above its predecessor. Ant-Man scored a $57 million opening weekend

Box Office: ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Heads to Supersized $80 Million Debut, ‘First Purge’ Aims for $25 Million

Box Office: ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Heads to Supersized $80 Million Debut, ‘First Purge’ Aims for $25 Million
After a record-breaking second quarter, the domestic box office shows no signs of slowing down.

July looks to start strong as “Ant-Man and the Wasp” eyes a debut between $70 million and $80 million when it launches in 4,100 theaters on Friday. Fellow newcomer “The First Purge” is hoping to scare up a solid opening of its own, getting a jump on the Marvel tentpole by opening on the 4th of July. The fourth title in the “Purge” series should earn around $25 million during the five-day period.

If estimates hold, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” will start well ahead of the original “Ant-Man’s” $57 million debut. That Marvel movie went on to earn $519 million globally, including $180 million at the domestic box office. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reunite as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne in the film set between the events of “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War.” The follow-up

This Fan Art For The Incredibles Reimagines The Characters in a Much More Gritty Style

Artist Warrick Wong has created a series of fan art for The Incredibles that gives some of the characters a much grittier and hardcore look. This is definitely a much darker take on the characters. They feature Dash, Violet, and Jack Jack as adult superheroes and then there is a much older Mr. Incredible. He didn't do one of Elastigirl, but you get the idea of what the artist is going for. Check out the art below and let us know what you think. It would be fun to see a fan bring this art to life in a brief animation test.

Old Man Incredible - 14 years ago when his children were stolen from him and his wife presumed dead, Bob lost his will to serve justice. He abandoned the Incredible name and all that was left was a terrible rage. A rage for vengeance... Continuing my series of Incredibles.
