Star Wars: The Force Awakens–I’m starting to warm up to that subtitle, at last–is approaching the box office of Avatar and I don’t understand it. What’s confused me is that I don’t understand how it is that Avatar was able to reach such box office heights in the first place. Let’s be honest, it’s not a […]
I really like the Zootopia trailer. It’s Pixar, which means that it’s going to look great, but unlike other of their movies it looks like it might do less moralizing, and more entertaining.
According to Business Insider, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur is the company’s first box office failure, though that’s not quite true (not yet, at any rate). The reason being, the movie has only been out thirteen days, so it’s a bit too early to tell. Ironically, the Variety article that the Business Insider article links to […]
The teaser for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur was released today, and it’s very Pixarian (not a word, but it ought to be) in that the backgrounds appear almost photo-real, while the creatures themselves (be they cars, planes, people or in this instance, dinosaurs) look relatively soft, doughy and not at all realistic. Which makes sense considering that to do otherwise […]
This is a really cute trailer (and casting Lewis Black as Anger, sheer genius, in an obvious sort of way considering he’s built a career out of being pissed). There’s something about Pixar productions that makes them feel more interesting–generally speaking–than those from companies such as Dreamworks SKG and Illumination/Universal. That’s not necessarily to say that […]
Demand I am still reasonably sure that there will be a sequel to the 2010 Joseph Kosinski film, Tron: Legacy. The original earned over $400 million worldwide, on a budget of $170 million. When you take into account promotional costs–which I don’t have access to, but I’ll add on another $100 million, which sounds […]
I haven’t heard of this before it turning up in my Twitter account, but for my money anything done in a Mike Mignola-style (or perhaps done by Mignola himself) is pretty awesome.
Wha!? “You have no idea what you’re talking about,” you’re probably saying to yourself. The Dark Knight Rises earned over a billion dollars! Man of Steel took in almost $669 million! What do you mean Green Lantern, which earned almost $220 million on a $200 million budget” Ok, if you’re thinking short-term, then The Dark […]
This looks awesome. The Pixar-infusion to Disney Animation has apparently done wonders because this looks incredible. Now combined with some goodness from the Marvel side of the family, there’s virtually no way that Big Hero 6 can’t be a hit.
As you can tell from the screenshots of the Tweets that I have included below, I have been having a few conversations with Baymax, of Disney’s upcoming Big Hero 6. He’s very literal, as is the way with most machines–and reminds me quite a bit of Apple Inc’s Siri. Besides, how can you resist a mug like […]
