The Good Dinosaur

The first trailer for The Good Dinosaur gave us a small tease of what’s to come from Pixar’s latest, revealing only a tiny portion of the plot and lacking any dialogue. Though it did give us a look at the gorgeous North American-inspired landscape the animators created just for the film.

Now Disney has released a full theatrical trailer for the film, which reveals a more detailed plot, and the relationship between Arlo, the dino-sized protagonist of the film, and his friend, Spot, a tiny fearless human boy. Check the trailer and a newly released image out below.

D23 Expo 2013: Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur banner

“This is the biggest ‘what if?’ ever,” John Lasseter said today at the Animation panel at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, in describing Disney/Pixar’s animated feature The Good Dinosaur. Most Pixar films start off with big questions, he said, and The Good Dinosaur is no exception. Footage was shown, and details about the characters and who’d be voicing them were announced.

The main character is Arlo the Apatosaurus, as voiced by Lucas Neff. Other characters in the film include members of Arlo’s family: John Lithgow as Poppa, Frances McDormand as Momma, Bill Hader as older brother Forrest, Neil Patrick Harris as brother Cliff, Judy Greer as sister Ivy, and then there’s Neff as Arlo. Hader, Greer and Neff came out onto the stage, having just met one another.

Moonrise Kingdom

I understand why most people are reluctant to embrace the films of Wes Anderson. They are clearly not for all tastes. Anderson makes movies about lost souls searching for emotional support and redemption in meticulously-created worlds where everything is filtered through a child’s pure sense of wonder. He is one of the most unique voices in American cinema today and though his films are set in places not fully grounded in the reality that we are all accustomed to, his characters’ actions and emotions are. Their feelings of joy, despair, grief, hatred, and love make them cinematic personalities as authentic in their thoughts and words as those of their creator.

Anderson does not always succeed when he sets out to make a movie, but even his greatest failures – of which there are precious few – are way more enjoyable than the vast majority of films being released these days. There is a reason why the Criterion Collection has released nearly every film directed by Anderson on DVD and Blu-ray, and I am still waiting with great anticipation for that Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou Blu.

Movie Review: Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom movie posterMoonrise Kingdom
Directed by Wes Anderson
Starring Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Bob Balaban and Harvey Keitel
Release Date: May 16, 2012

French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard, a powerful influence in cinema and pop culture from the 1960s onward thanks to his radical films, depicted in some of his films the need for the adolescent or youth to maintain their autonomy in the process of society attempting to crush it and mold it for their own purposes. This is pure literary, but in cinema the right director can demonstrate explicitly the harsh tendencies of society.

In his newest film, Moonrise Kingdom, director Wes Anderson, with a script he co-wrote with Roman Coppola, is approaching that topic Godard had always wrestled with, and still is today. It is not easy to do, but with Anderson’s whimsy and vigorous style of direction, unerring in its constant infatuation with capturing perfection, we are able to witness two adolescents restlessly in love in a perfectly concocted world endure an environment that is stifling and stunting their growth.

Moonrise Kingdom

Focus Features has released a three-minute behind the scenes featurette for Wes Anderson’s upcoming romantic comedy Moonrise Kingdom. Though the film focuses on the runaway romance between two children, the featurette focuses mostly on the film’s adult cast: Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, and Jason Schwartzman.

In the video they talk about their experiences working on the set of Moonrise Kingdom and about Anderson’s directing style. You get to see what it was like on the set of the film. The gorgeous simplicity of the set pieces and the beautiful locations that Anderson chose is exactly why Moonrise Kingdom is one of my top ten highly anticipated films of 2012.

The first announcement teaser trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon has now arrived online. And though it’s dubbed an “announcement” teaser, it’s actually more like a traditional teaser and shows off some interesting things.

The movie comes once again from director Michael Bay, and is the third in the franchise following Transformers (2007) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009).

In the announcement teaser trailer, we’re whisked back to 1969 during the Apollo 11 mission that saw Neil Armstrong become the first human being to step foot on the moon. But right after their historic accomplishment, the astronauts on the mission discover something even more remarkable.

Be sure to head on over to the other side now to check out this first trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon!

Apart from the much-covered spat between director Michael Bay and starlet Megan Fox, which ultimately led to her replacement with Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as the female lead, and star Shia LaBeouf promising things would be much better this time around, we haven’t heard too much about Transformers 3.

The Bay directed trilogy-capper now has itself an official title, and it will be interesting to see how fans react to it. The movie will now be called Transformers: The Dark of the Moon, which ties to a trio of upcoming Transformer novels with similar titles, Transformers: The Dark of the Moon – Secret of the Autobots, Transformers: The Dark of the Moon – Autobots Betrayed!, and Transformers: The Dark of the Moon: Invasion of the Decepticons.

Transformers

Things are starting to get rolling on Transformers 3, and as you all know, a lot of work must be done in order to make up for what we were given in the first sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

To helps fans start to get excited, some casting and talking has occurred this week, and both are worth peek and a read.

To start things off, The Wrap is reporting that fan-favorite Alan Tudyk has joined the cast of the third movie. It’s not known who the Firefly, Dollhouse, and V star will be playing in the movie, but he’s always a welcome addition to any movie being made. The actor joins fellow newcomers John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, and Ken Jeong Join who were cast in March, as well as Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey.

We haven’t heard much in terms of Transformers 3 since Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hit theaters to a tidal wave of mass disappointment from fans. The third flick in the franchise has been in the news here and there, but with director Michael Bay looking to do something else and lots of drama reported between he and star Megan Fox, it sounded like it would be a long time before we saw it…if ever.

Apparently this is not the case at all. Bay has written a new post on his official blog, and he not only shares three big new names that have joined the cast, but when pre-production will get underway, where the movie will be filming, and even a new Autobot that we’ll see. The interesting trio that have joined the cast are Burn After Reading co-stars John Malkovich and Frances McDormand, and they’re joined by Ken Jeong.

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – The Final Chapter

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – The Final ChapterNOTE: For structural reasons and to ensure that this list is super-duper pretty at all times, we’ll be posting this same intro for all sections of The Decade List. If you’ve already read all of this, you can just head down to the continuation of our list!

Let’s just get it out of the way right off the ol’ bat: yes, we know it’s been a few months since we left the decade. Most folks undertook this heavy task pre-2010, but we decided that it would be a little bit better to let the new year settle in a bit before hitting you with something of this magnitude.

So here we are, geeks: we’ve officially arrived in FUTURE *cue retro ’50s sci-fi music* and still we have no freakin’ flying cars yet. What’s the deal with that? While it is pretty exciting to be inside of the year 2010 — a year that always seemed unreachable to us mere mortals — we are also exiting another entire decade that leaves us staring at one majorly epic task. That task? To search, dig, locate, retrieve, organize, polish, and present the very best films of the past ten years!

We must once again declare that this list is also simply opinion. You are are without doubt going to find movies here that you hate and do not think deserve to be included. You will surely think of movies that you think should not only be on here, but that should be at the very top of the list. There will even be some that I have not seen and thus, can not add. Even at this very moment, I sit, worrying and wondering if I’ve forgotten any that I would include; that’s just the way things fly when compiling something this massive.

With all of that said, we invite you in to relax and check out our Final Chapter of The Decade List: The 59 Best Films of the Past Ten Years!
