BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
By just about any standard you use to measure such things, Avengers: Age of Ultron was a success. However, at least some executives at Disney think the film was a failure.
Many of the attractions at Disney theme parks are designed to transport riders to another time and place, and when Dwayne Johnson adapts Jungle Cruise into a movie, it's going to do the same thing.
After 14 years stuck in development hell, Artemis Fowl is set to finally make the jump from the page to the big screen, and it looks as though Kenneth Branagh is going to be the man to accomplish this feat.
At this point Jurassic World has made so much money that Steven Spielberg must be smiling. Find out what this may mean for the future of his career.
There’s a natural friction between employers and employees when it comes to wages. Most companies want to pay less. Most people want to make more. It’s a healthy tension that works to slowly push wages up, at least if the better employees have the option of moving to rival companies.
Disney and Universal have completely pummeled their rivals at the box office this year. And, as most of their successes were part of franchise, it's only going to get worse for the opposition.
The Walt Disney Company has a history of turning their most popular theme park attractions into movies, and it seems as though they are ready to add another chapter to that book. This is because they are actively developing a film based around the Jungle Cruise ride, and it's a project that has Dwayne Johnson interested in starring.
It’s been more than five years since Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland took the global box office by storm, ultimately ranking as one of the few movies to make more than a billion dollars worldwide. Now Alice Through The Looking Glass is coming out next year, but only now do we know what the film is going to actually be about.
For those of us who grew up with Pixar, we attribute many of the early lessons we learned about life – be it friendship, love, or family – to the morals imbued in their animated features. New details have emerged about Pixar’s new movie, and they seem primed to continue that tradition.
With Pixar releasing two movies in 2015, Walt Disney Animation Studios is taking the year off from the big screen… but they will quickly be back in action in early 2016. This is when the brand new feature Zootopia is set to come out around the world, and from the look of the footage we saw this past Friday, it’s a movie for which we should all be very excited.
Most people will agree that the Star Wars prequels have their fair share of flaws. Despite the mixed reaction to the more recent trilogy, Star Wars creator George Lucas has opened up about his inspiration – as well as love – for one of the series more hated elements: Jar Jar Binks.
Earlier today, we showcased the first ever poster for Jon Favreau’s upcoming The Jungle Book, which gave us a close-up look at the brand new live-action versions of some truly legendary literary characters. That, however, is not the full extent of the preview that we received this morning, as Disney showed off an entire sizzle reel from the 2016 blockbuster.
It’s been a long while since we’ve heard anything on the front of Jon Favreau’s upcoming live-action Jungle Book. But today at Disney’s Live-Action panel at D23 Expo, the studio revealed a better look at the upcoming feature, including the story’s two protagonists and unlikely friends, Mowgli and Bagheera the panther.
Disney held its massive D23 convention in Southern California this weekend, and part of that celebration was a sprawling panel covering all of the live-action films that the studio will be bringing to theaters in the coming months. Part of the fun of covering these panels – both on the ground (as our own Eric Eisenberg is doing) and from afar – is guessing what might pop up in footage presentations.
Some interesting details are finally emerging about the anticipated Toy Story followup. After learning that Toy Story 4 would involve a love story between the beloved cowboy toy Woody, it now sounds as though an adventure is in story for Woody and his trusted space ranger pal.
It was back in April that Dwayne Johnson revealed that he would be joining the amazing world of Walt Disney Animated movies. It was officially confirmed that the A-lister would be joining the cast of Moana, playing the role of Maui… but what wasn’t said at the time was exactly what we could expect from the character.
Disney’s D23 Expo is in full swing in Anaheim and whether you love Disney, or just all the things they own, there’s lots of cool stuff going on. It’s not all Marvel and Star Wars though. If you’re a fan of classic Disney animation, there’s plenty for you too.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one: there are some conspiracy theorists out there who think that Walt Disney Animation secretly made Tarzan the long-lost brother of Anna and Elsa from Frozen. That would mean there’s a secret shared cinematic universe of Disney, but what’s the real story behind this theory?
After the crazy success of Disney’s Frozen, we pretty much assumed that a sequel would quickly follow. But after the announcement came this past March, we still haven't been given much detail. Now at least we know we'll be seeing a whole new side to a main character.
Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and to mark the occasion, one of the stars shared a new picture of the lovely, snow-covered set.
