TOY STORY 4

As a reporter, I have opportunities to visit animation studios and get a sneak preview of their upcoming films. It’s an exciting experience to step foot in these studios, to see such their rich histories and marvel at the legacy they are creating. But there’s nothing like visiting Pixar Animation Studios. When one gets an invite to go there, it’s hard to say no. So I was caught off guard when said invite came. Needless to say, I immediately said yes.

As a Pixar fan, I was going to enjoy every single moment and every single second of being on their campus in Emeryville, CA. It goes without saying that it was a life-changing experience. And so, after all the flights and getting settled into the hotel, I joined a group of journalists to take a look at the Pixar campus to see what Toy Story 4 is all about. More on this and reaction to the footage we were shown, below.

Jeremy Holm interview

This week on May 9th, Jenn Wexler’s indie punk horror film The Ranger premieres on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder. The film debuted last summer and ran through the festival circuit. Wexler, who cut her teeth producing at Glass Eye Pix, co-wrote the script with Giaco Furino and the film feels like Wolf Creek by way of Return of the Living Dead. A film called The Ranger is only as strong as its titular villain and that role went to veteran actor Jeremy Holm (House of Cards, Mr. Robot). I got a chance to speak with him as the film prepares to make its streaming debut.

Toy Story 4

Earlier this month, I got the very rare opportunity to join a select group of journalists to travel to Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, CA, where we got a sneak preview of Toy Story 4. The fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise sees Woody and Buzz go in a new direction by tapping into new themes that were never explored in any of the previous films. This is what helps keep the franchise fresh and new.

I’ve already shown you how technology has changed since the first Toy Story came out, but now it is time to hear from a roundtable interview we had with director Josh Cooley and producer Mark Nielsen about the upcoming film, the daunting task of revisiting a beloved franchise after the third is considered perfect, bringing Bo Peep back, and more. Check out what they had to say below.

TOY STORY 4

Pixar Animation Studios has come a long way from where they first started out releasing commercials for top brands names. After the release of Toy Story in 1995, they became the premiere animation studio and are now recognized all over the globe for creating beautifully animated films that are rich in color and story. Though they pride themselves in releasing original stories, they have also released prequels and sequels to some fan-favorite films. And now they will be releasing Toy Story 4. The film is the 21st feature released by Pixar, and sees Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), and the rest of the gang going on a new adventure and reuniting with an old friend, Bo Peep (Anne Potts).

Geeks of Doom and a select number of journalists were flown all the way to Emeryville, California to visit the Pixar campus and get a behind-the-scenes look at the film. We will have extensive coverage on Toy Story 4 and our visit to Pixar Animation Studios in the coming weeks. So be sure to stay tuned. But we will first start off with how far Pixar’s technology has come since they first started out in 1995. So let’s take a look at how the technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. Check it out below.

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame featured so many memorable comic book movie moments that made audiences go through a roller coaster ride of emotions. Though there were big action spectacles and very sad goodbyes, the epic finale also had some very funny moments marked by snarky insults and name-calling, most of which came from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper).

These were mostly observational insults that targeted another person’s intelligence or body figure. But it was all in good fun, and to lighten the mood. So check out some of our favorites from Avengers: Endgame, below.

The panel gave us fans a chance to hear the man behind the mirth, and he did not disappoint. After getting comfy on the couches, they got right into it.

You can see what he had to say, along with a video and some images from the panel, below.
