Dumbo Header Image

Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer for Dumbo, the next remake of one of their animated classics on the way after the live-action Winnie the Pooh movie, Christopher Robin, is released later this summer. The movie is directed by Tim Burton and stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, Eva Green, Nico Parker, and Finley Hobbins.

The first trailer is just a teaser trailer, but it does run over a minute and gives us a good peek at the movie. Basically it looks like Burton remade Dumbo in the same style as his Big Fish, which is easily one of my favorite Burton films.

Continue below to read a synopsis and watch the first trailer.

Kitty Pryde

Tim Miller may not have come back to direct Deadpool 2, but he isn’t exactly done with the X-Men world.

That’s because the filmmaker is developing a Kitty Pryde film, following one of the youngest members of the X-Men, who has powers to phase through objects. But how will the film be affected by Disney’s acquisition of Fox? Find out more on the story below.

Disney Maleficent Angelina Jolie

While Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales may have been a strong showing for the franchise, it wasn’t necessarily that from a box office standpoint.

So while Disney decides the future of the franchise, the studio is making the moves on yet another long-gestating sequel by entering negotiations with one of the Pirates 5 directors. According to new reports, Joachim Rønning is in talks to direct Maleficent 2. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Cars 3

Cars 3

Cars 3
Director: Brian Fee
Screenwriters: Kiel Murray, Bob Peterson, Mike Rich
Cast: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington, Lea DeLaria
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG| 109 Minutes
Release Date: June 16, 2017

One of the things that continues to impress me about Pixar’s Cars franchise is its resiliency and heart. Though it is considered to be one of Pixar’s weakest franchises, it managed to become a trilogy. It may not resonate as much with fans as some other Pixar films do, but Cars has continually shown that it has what it takes to be great. Even if it that means it needed to take two “very safe” films to get there. So Cars 3 doesn’t take any huge risks, it takes an unconventional approach to possibly ending Lightning McQueen’s (Owen Wilson) story.

While that is a bit refreshing for the franchise, it does come with its own set of issues and concerns. All of it depends on how you look at it. Check out my full review below.

Watch: New ‘Cars 3’ Trailer “Rivalry”

Cars 3

We just saw a trailer for Pixar’s trilogy-maker Cars 3 a couple of weeks back, but a new trailer has been released this week.

The new trailer is titled “Rivalry,” and you can probably guess what it focuses on. It opens with the voice of the late, great Paul Newman, who voiced Doc Hudson in the original movie—the final character he ever played. Pixar had voice over he recorded for the first movie that was never used, so we’ll be hearing new stuff from Doc in the movie, likely in flashbacks or dream sequences of some sort. The trailer then shifts to Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the seemingly unbeatable racing star he’s up against, Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).

Check out the latest trailer for Cars 3 below.

Cars 3 Header Image

Cars may not be as universally loved as its fellow Pixar films, but like all Pixar films, it has plenty of heart. Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) has been steering the franchise’s success for the last two films, where he has discovered the true meaning of humility and friendship.

But now it’s time for him to suffer a very critical loss and go back to basics to discover that some careers don’t last forever, but it’s the legacy that you leave behind that truly matters. Check out the latest trailer for Cars 3 below.

The Walt Disney Studios released three critically/viewer acclaimed films in 2016 that also were major financial hits – Moana still pending, but early signs look favorable; Finding Dory; and Zootopia.

Which of the three films, though, is the best? That’s like picking a favorite child, considering each movie’s unique strengths. To help determine the winner – in my book, at least – I have established a bunch of categories that apply to all of the films. Let the battle commence!

 Han Solo Alden Ehrenreich

Never tell Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) the odds, because the actor has just been named the new Han Solo for the upcoming Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film from directors by Chris Miller and Phil Lord. Ehrenreich had beat out 2,500 actors, with names like Dave Franco and Miles Teller, being just a few of the top names that were in the running.

Disney In Depth: Disney’s PG-13, Non-Branded Films Problem

Disney In Depth Banner

Add The Finest Hours to the latest string of Disney disappointments that fall under two categories: PG-13 dramas and non-branded films. This amazing true story of the heroic 1952 Coast Guard rescue may have won me over as a viewer, but I was in the minority. Not only did the adventure tale receive mixed reviews, but also few moviegoers have even checked it out in theaters. Disney continues to contend with releasing movies that are neither part of an established brand nor cater to more mature audiences (and, thus, having that PG-13 rating).

This edition of Disney In Depth addresses an issue that more of us film fanatics must discuss: the Mouse House’s failed attempts in recent years to debut successful movies outside of the animation, Marvel, Star Wars, and other live-action brand umbrellas. More vitally, though, how can Walt Disney Studios find that sweet storytelling spot and make one of these projects resonate with the general public?

Disney In Depth: 2016 Walt Disney Studios Film Preview

Disney In Depth Banner

Following a strong 2015 slate, The Walt Disney Studios continues its eclectic lineup of original productions, branding via Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and Disney, and a few remakes. 2016 should once again demonstrate Disney’s prominence in the film business, though Universal is experiencing a creative and critical resurgence to some degree. What Disney holds in its favor is consistency (in quality, generally) and accessibility (familiarity with properties). Consumers know (almost) precisely what they receive in buying a ticket to a Disney movie – even if Disney now has its hands in Lucasfilm and Marvel films.

Here is a preview of 2016 films from The Walt Disney Studios.
