You know that grunt-like scream that Miss Piggy makes when she’s really made and frustrated? That’s pretty much what the American Family Association offshoot One Million Moms is doing right now as they boycott ABC’s The Muppets TV show premiering this Tuesday at 8pm Eastern.
The organization touts a mission statement saying that they are trying to “stop the exploitation of our children, especially by the entertainment media” and “stand against the immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity the entertainment media is throwing at your children.” Or more succinctly put, “We want our children to have the best chance possible of living in a moral society.”
So it might come as no surprise that The Muppets TV series, which has been described as having a more adult-skewed tone than previous Muppet stories, has the organization in uproar because the show apparently makes nonchalant jokes about sex and drugs. Find out more about One Million Moms boycotting The Muppets below. Read More »
So far we’ve seen two different trailers for Pixar Animation’s second film of 2015, The Good Dinosaur. And while we’ve seen some stunning animation and have a basic idea of the story about a young apatosaurus named Arlo befriending a feral young boy in the wild, we’ve only heard one word of dialogue from the movie.
But that changes today in a quick new The Good Dinosaur trailer from overseas. This one has Spanish voiceover and bumpers, but it doesn’t make the trailer harder to follow because all the dialogue is in English, and it includes more lines from Raymond Ochoa as Arlo, as well as the first dialogue from Sam Elliott as the gruff, intimidating tyrannosaurus rex named Butch and more.

We’re just under three months away from the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and just last week we actually got confirmation that we’ll be able to see the movie a little earlier than December 18th with showings beginning at 7pm at some theaters on December 17th (as expected). And thankfully, we’re still in the dark about a great many things regarding the story, characters and much more about the Star Wars sequel.
One of the most intriguing elements of The Force Awakens is the new villain Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver. Director J.J. Abrams has confirmed that he’s not a Sith, but he’s working with The First Order. Other than that, his motivations as the villain in the movie aren’t very clear. But a new proposal from our old pal Germain Lussier puts forth an interesting The Force Awakens Darth Vader theory that could explain what Kylo Ren might be planning.

This summer, Pixar Animation made tears come out of our face all over again with their touching story Inside Out. As one clever chart pointed out, all the Pixar movies have been about giving non-human things feelings, right up through Inside Out where even the feelings had feelings.
And in honor of this summer’s emotional adventure inside the mind, Pixar fan Lindsay McCutcheon put together a wonderful montage of some of the most emotionally powerful moments from the history of the animation house’s feature films. Watch the fantastic Pixar emotions montage after the jump! Read More »
For the past few years, there’s always been some kind of rumor about the original Star Wars theatrical cuts being made available on Blu-Ray for the first time ever. The most recent rumor pointing to such a release came over a year ago, and since then we’ve even seen some cool fake mock-ups for Blu-Ray covers for the hopeful releases.
However, nearly three years ago, we laid out why it wasn’t likely that Disney would be releasing a box set of the theatrical cuts of the original trilogy anytime soon, mainly because 20th Century Fox still owns the release rights to both the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy until 2020.
Making matters even more complicated is that Fox actually owns the rights to A New Hope “in perpetuity in all media worldwide.” That means they’ll never lose the rights to Episode IV, so unless they come to some kind of deal with Disney, a box set release of all the movies, including the original theatrical cuts, isn’t in the cards.
Well, this rumor has cropped up yet again, though it’s somewhat more credible this time than previously. Find out more about the Star Wars theatrical cut Blu-Ray below. Read More »
