The summer 2014 movie season is only a few weeks behind us, but Pixar has offered us one big reason to look forward to the 2015 movie season. The revered animation studio has just revealed the first trailer for Inside Out, Pete Docter‘s fanciful exploration into the mind of an 11-year-old girl.
Like all people, this kid is guided by her emotions. But unlike most normal, real-life folk, hers are personified by colorful figures voiced by Amy Poehler (Joy), Bill Hader (Fear), Lewis Black (Anger), Mindy Kaling (Disgust), and Phyllis Smith (Sadness). Watch the Inside Out trailer after the jump.

The first step to Episode VII takes place Friday night when Star Wars Rebels debuts on The Disney Channel. Set between Episodes III and IV, the cartoon is the first piece of new content being released under the Disneyfied Star Wars umbrella, which boasts a fully connected universe. Rebels is 100% part of the Star Wars canon and will not only set the tone for Episode VII next year, it will have teases toward it too. Plus, on it’s own, it’s a fantastic thrill-ride seeped in what makes Star Wars great. That doesn’t hurt.
For those reasons, Disney has the utmost confidence in the show and, the day before the first season premieres, they’ve already renewed Star Wars Rebels for Season 2. Read More »
The Disney Channel is quickly becoming something geeks need to keep an eye on. If having a brand new Star Wars series on it this week wasn’t enough, their long running hit Phineas & Ferb continues to attract in A-List geek talent.

What could bring those two iconic character to the show? You can watch the Shaun of the Dead animated clip below and find out. Read More »
A day without Star Wars rumors is like a day without sunshine. Earlier today, we ran a few of the latest and like any good virus, a bunch of others have sprouted up around them. The most interesting has to do with the the home of Daisy Ridley‘s character, referred to on set as Kira. Multiple sources confirm not only where she lives, what she lives inside, and it’s probably a good size spoiler.
The second has to do with the role played by Max Von Sydow. We know he’s cast in the movie, but we haven’t heard much about who he’s playing outside of speculation. A new report has an idea, and it’s not at all what anyone guessed. Read more about the latest Star Wars 7 rumors below. Read More »
Officially, Robert Downey Jr. is only contacted to play Iron Man one more time. He’s already completed next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and then he’ll shoot The Avengers 3, whenever that ends up happening. However, the proposition of an Iron Man 4 is something the actor has been very coy about. He’s said things that hint he won’t return, then softened those statements considerably. With his latest film, The Judge, hitting theaters soon, Downey is once again under fire about his iconic role as Tony Stark and a new quote definitely makes it sound like he’ll return.
And even if he doesn’t, an excellent short film has made its way online that uses his likeness for a whole different kind of Iron Man transition. It’s really cool. Below, hear the new Iron Man 4 Robert Downey Jr quote and see him in a new short film. Read More »
When last we left the role of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange, Joaquin Phoenix was in “final talks.” That was in late August, but Marvel has yet to make an official announcement about the casting. So we wait. Now, a new name is in the mix, reportedly contacted after Joaquin Phoenix wouldn’t make things final. That name is Ethan Hawke, the star most recently seen in Boyhood.
Hawke starred in director Scott Derrickson‘s 2012 hit, Sinister, so he has a relationship with the director. He also has that wise gravitas needed for the role. But is this real? We explore the Ethan Hawke Doctor Strange rumor after the jump. Read More »
Trying to figure out the plot to Star Wars Episode VII is like putting together a messed up puzzle. There’s no guide, people are forging pieces, and we don’t know what connects to what. Even pieces we think are correct could potentially be total crap. We won’t have a real idea until we learn the title and see some footage, both of which are likely several months away.
Still, the impossible construction of the secretive plot is fun and today two new rumors enter the mix. One details a potential early scene in the film and a second calls into question several plot points we’ve pretty much accepted as fact. Read both the new Star Wars 7 rumors below. Read More »

Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast is getting a polish from a guy who should know a thing or two about bookish, attractive outsiders. Stephen Chbosky, the author/screenwriter/director behind YA classic The Perks of Being a Wallflower, has just come aboard to rewrite the live-action adaptation. Bill Condon is directing.
Interestingly, the hire pits Chbosky against his own Perks star Emma Watson, who’s attached to lead the competing Beauty project at Warner Bros. Unless she jumps ship for Chbosky, that is. Hit the jump for more about the new Beauty and the Beast writer.
