Imagine three weeks ago. To say it was a different time is something of an understatement. Walt Disney Studios was basking the glow of not only a gigantic haul and critical acclaim for Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok, but a soon to be recor…

#MeToo continues to be heard loud and clear throughout Hollywood. Men in all corners of the industry are being held accountable for their behavior and facing the consequences for harassment and assault that for too long has been ignored. Now, one of th…

“You have powers!” Disney has released the very first teaser trailer for Pixar’s The Incredibles 2, or now titled simply Incredibles 2 (drop the “the”). This teaser isn’t that much, but it is officially something, since we’ve all been (im)patiently waiting 13 years for them to make this sequel. Brad Bird directs once again, and the plot synopsis released by Disney only states that it’s about Bob navigating “the day-to-day heroics of ‘normal’ life”, allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, “whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad’s surprise.” Which is pretty much what this trailer shows. Craig T. Nelson is back as the voice of Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. I’m excited to see some actual footage and find out what this sequel is going to really be about, because I’m intrigued after waiting all these years already. Here’s the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Brad Bird’s Incredibles 2, direct from Disney’s YouTube: In Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles …

“I’m not like the rest of my family…” Disney-Pixar have revealed one final, official trailer for Pixar’s Coco, the first musical and next animated movie from the beloved animation studio. The story involves a young boy named Miguel who gets lost in the world of the dead while searching for his great-great grandfather. This already opened in Mexico to rave reviews.

We’ve already seen three trailers previously, but this final one gives us a colorful look at the world that awaits us. I’m very excited to see this, I’m in need of another Pixar tearjerker. This looks charming and heartfelt, as expected from Pixar. Here’s the final official trailer (+ new UK poster) for Pixar’s Coco, direct from Disney-Pixar’s YouTube: You can also watch the teaser trailer for Pixar’s Coco here, the full-length trailer or “Dante’s Lunch” short. The short synopsis is quite vague: Pixar’s …

“None of them understand me… I’m supposed to play music!” Yay! Disney-Pixar have unveiled a full-length official trailer for Pixar’s Coco, the first musical and next animated movie from the beloved animation studio. The story involves a young boy named Miguel who gets lost in the world of the dead while searching for his great-great grandfather. The voices include newcomer Anthony Gonzalez playing Miguel, along with Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Renee Victor. This certainly looks like Pixar’s most colorful movie yet, my goodness. We also finally get a glimpse of the dead world and all the various skeleton characters he meets. This looks like it’s going to be fun and emotional and a very potent reminder of the love families have. Though we still haven’t actually heard a real song from the movie yet, I’m totally sold anyway. Here’s the third official trailer (+ new poster) for Pixar’s Coco, direct from Disney-Pixar’s YouTube: You can also watch the first teaser …

Being Pixar’s first original feature since 2015’s underperforming “The Good Dinosaur” means that Lee Unkrich’s Coco” has great pressure to stand out from the crowd, especially amidst Pixar’s usually critically acclaimed franchises. “The day John Lasseter gave the thumbs up for this movie, I immediately felt this huge weight drop onto my shoulders because I knew that we were doing something different than we had ever made at the studio,” Unkrich recently told EW.

It’s the last full week in August, but just before Summer Madness segues into Fall Folly, we thought we’d have a go investigating a claim we’ve been hearing asserted with some frequency: that Summer 2017 is one of the best blockbuster seasons in recent memory. We decided to pit it against the 17 other summer seasons this century (yes, pedants, we count the year 2000) to see how it stacks up. Of course, the several-billion dollar questions are: how do we define “Summer Season” and how to we define the kind of films we want to focus on?
