BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Disney is eager to get production on 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea rolling in early 2015 in Australia, a nation that in the past has offered hefty tax incentives to shoot there.
Some studios are trying to make great movies, trying to make profit, trying to make hits. But right now, Disney is acting completely gangsta. They've got their Disney animated fare, and completely unrelated Pixar movies. They've got Marvel completely crushing things, and they've got a savagely bombastic live-action branch of films for families.
Considering seven separate categories, To 3D Or Not To 3D evaluates the full scope of the 3D viewing experience. Think of it as a consumer's guide for your movie-going, complete with a viewers poll where you can weigh in on how you plan to see Planes: Fire & Rescue.
Justin Springer, best known for producing Prom, will oversee the project, and Transformers writer Ehren Kruger will pen the script with an eye toward making it as family-friendly as possible.
Hollywood is a high pressure environment. Under the right circumstance, it’s able to offer money and fame. Under the wrong circumstances, it’s able to spit proud men and women back out. Kevin Brady, an ex-Story Department Director at Disney, was one of men recently spit on
Get the skate sharpener out. I have some good news. The Mighty Ducks franchise, dormant since 1996, may not have gotten permanently suspended by Disney. The film’s producer has reportedly had some conversations with the Mouse House over the years, and while another installment isn’t a guarantee, the puck is still very much in play!
This is all part of the studio’s growing plan to farm out live-action takes on their classic stories. Beyond this new Beauty and the Beast project, Disney already has Jon Favreau hard at work on a live-action version of The Jungle Book. And we recently saw the first tease for Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella.
Big Hero 6 is Disney's first animated adaptation of a Marvel comic, and we have the first look at two of the film's main characters – thanks to a new trailer and poster. While the teaser lands more on the Disney side of the fence, there's a good hint at Marvel here.
You may already own a DVD copy of the classic canon flick, but on October 7, Sleeping Beauty will be hitting Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere for the very first time.
Walt Disney Animation Studios recently gave out bonuses to their Animation division, as a congratulations for a job well done. The job in question could be the animated film Frozen, which went from being just another Disney movie to being the biggest animated film of all time. If that's the case, there's a lot of laid off animators who would like to collect on what they believe they are owed.
Disney is having a very good year. That's probably stating the obvious, when we consider the Frozen overflow into 2014 and the success of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but the actual numbers for both films have contributed greatly to a massive international box office haul for the studio...
Condon is best-known as the architect for the final two fairly insane Twilight movies. Condon's a Hollywood lifer at this point, having helmed musicals like Dreamgirls, biopics like Gods And Monsters and unassailable classics like Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh.
Frozen 2 seems inevitable. It’s just not official. We reached out to Disney, who had no official comment on the state of Frozen 2. But the writing’s clearly on the wall.
With a December 2015 release date, it’s full power on Lucasfilms’ first Disney-distributed effort. You’ll get to see the relatives and descendants of Luke, Han, Leia and (hopefully) Chewbacca in the IMAX format next holiday season, a real treat for those who appreciate JJ Abrams’ widescreen vistas.
The title essentially says it all. Disney Movie Anywhere is a new, cloud-based digital movie service launched by The Walt Disney Studios that will allow subscribers to access Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies on the go using their favorite iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
