BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Pixar’s summer release in 2016 will take audiences back into the water with everyone’s favorite forgetful fish. Finding Dory will reach theaters 12 years (!!) after 2003’s Finding Nemo introduced us to a nervous clown fish, his suffocated son, and the amnesic blue tang fish that helped them on their rescue mission.
Believe it or not, YouTube has some quality films hiding within its walls... and some of them are even free to watch! Here's a list of 20 prime candidates that you might want to bookmark before the next Winter Storm/Sick Day.
Could it be that Pixar Animation Studios is cooking up what would be its first proper feature length musical project? Well according to a repertory singer/songwriter for the groundbreaking auteurs of digital animation, Randy Newman, that does seem to be the case.
In case you were off making dinner or sipping cocktails during the commercial breaks last night, we got to see some brand new footage of Pixar’s Inside Out from SNL’s 40th anniversary special.
What if I told you that the latest trailer for Pixar’s Inside Out actually manages to piss on the movie? Well, I’d be telling you the truth…kind of. The animated extravaganza recently dropped a demographic-appropriate new short clip yesterday during the Puppy Bowl, briefly showcasing the film along with footage of a multitude of - you guessed it - puppies.
Kids movies can be rough to sit through as an adult. For these eleven movies though, there's enough interesting elements for adults to be locked in as well.
If you scan through all of the images, you can see a lot of traces of elements that ended up in Lee Unkrich’s Toy Story 3. Instead of recalled toys in a Taiwanese factory, the action in 3 shifted to a daycare center, where Lotso lorded over broken, rejected toys.
We have known for a while now that Pixar’s latest, Inside Out, will take us inside the emotional thought process of a little girl. The full trailer for the upcoming animated comedy finally shows us how… and expands the scope of the project.
Certainly one of the most impressive parts about Pixar's Finding Nemo was the way in which it depicted the various "cultures" and environments that exist beneath the waves of the ocean - but it seems that element may be largely taken out of the upcoming sequel, Finding Dory.
Among chatting with its director John Lasseter, they uncovered that the fourth installment of this toy-driven franchise will focus on a love story. We've also learned it will pick up right where Toy Story 3 left off, meaning with Woody, Buzz and the rest of Andy's toys living happily with little Bonnie and her peppy pack of playthings.
Toy Story 4 has officially been announced and the world is much better for it. But could the fourth installment to the beloved franchise take advantage of Disney’s connections to Marvel and LucasFilm by including the likes of Spider-Man, The Avengers and Star Wars in the hugely anticipated adventure?
While Toy Story 3 seemed like it was going to be the official end of the beloved Pixar franchise’s run on the big screen, that idea has just been trashed. As it turns out, Pixar is actually now working on a Toy Story 4, and it’s being helmed by none other than Pixar head John Lasseter himself.
Disney's Frozen has surpassed Pixar's Toy Story 3 to claim the honor of highest grossing animated film of all time. But even though the animated musical has left all of Pixar's heralded features in the dust in the race to box office supremacy, that doesn't mean the animation studio is in a rush to imitate. While there could be a musical in Pixar's future, it won't come from a desire to ride Frozen's coattails.
Did you ever wonder what your emotions actually look like? Leave it to the animation geniuses at Pixar to put a visual on such human feelings as joy, anger, sadness, disgust and fear for their upcoming comedy Inside Out.
What would Monsters, Inc. look like as a horror film? This fan-made video throws a Prometheus spin on the beloved Pixar film, to show us the scarier side of Monsters, Inc..
Back in June, I had the pleasure of attending a special Pixar presentation in Los Angeles largely geared towards giving members of the press an early look at the upcoming feature film Inside Out... but that wasn't the only title on display that day. We were also the first audience outside of the animation company to watch Lava, the studio's newest short. Sadly, it will still be a long time before the project will be arriving in theaters, but the good news is that today we have a very special first look.
Pixar Animation Studios tease an early look at Riley as part of the Disney Movies Anywhere app. The service promised subscribers access to exclusive footage, and a sneak peek inside Inside Out appears to be the latest video.
So the Up clip demonstrates what we all pretty much knew. There are a lot of pretenders in this universe, and they think they can ape Michael Bay’s style. But when you boil it down to the facts, there is only one Michael Bay on this planet.
No Pixar film has had a rougher road to theaters than the upcoming The Good Dinosaur. First announced as being in development during the summer of 2011, the project hit the skids last summer when it was revealed that director Bob Peterson had been removed from the movie. While the finished product was supposed to actually come out this past May, its release date was bumped all the way to late 2016.
What’s Lava about? According to a studio release, the movie will be “a musical love story that takes place over millions of years” and was “inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes.” Sounds beautiful. And also sounds like a great excuse for Pixar’s animators to enjoy several field trips to gorgeous tropical islands.
Earlier this evening I was invited to the Director’s Guild of America screening room in Los Angeles where director Pete Doctor (Up, Monsters Inc.) and producer Jonas Rivera were on hand to give a handful of film journalists a preview of what they have in store with their upcoming movie.
Pete Docter said Riley isn’t the main character in Inside Out, but rather, the setting. He explains that Fear is another major player in the story (voiced by Bill Hader), and that, “I thought I was making a film about my daughter, but the truth is, I’m more making a film about myself in relation to my daughter."
After such wonderful films as Toy Story, The Incredibles, Up and Ratatouille, Pixar's brand is so strong that their very name makes us pumped for upcoming projects, whatever they are about. But one of their 2015 releases is now coming into sharper focus, as the widely acclaimed animation studio unveils a fuller plotline for Inside Out.
This is the latest in a long line of “Cars Toons,” which tend to focus on Mater and his many adventures. Getting Owen Wilson to return is a coup. Perhaps he was hanging around the Pixar campus running lines for Cars 3.
Pixar's Up was a box office smash, adored by critics, and winner of two Academy Awards (for Best Score and Best Animated Feature). But it turns out the movie's charms aren't quite enough to impress cranky citizens of Santa Clara, California who are furious that one family has recreated the Up house's colorful exterior on their Old Victorian home
