Marvel brought the God of Thunder into their cinematic universe back in 2011 with Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth as the son of Odin. At the helm of the film was Shakespearean filmmaker and actor Kenneth Branagh, and if a new Thor 3 director rumor is to be believed, it sounds like Marvel Studios might want him back to direct Thor: Ragnarok.

With the release of Ant-Man less than a month away, we’ve already seen quite a bit from the second Marvel Studios film hitting theaters this summer. Paul Rudd looks great in the Ant-Man suit, Corey Stoll‘s Yellowjacket also looks pretty slick, and Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lily will also have plenty to do in the tiny superhero’s first big screen adventure.
But there’s also a whole supporting cast that we haven’t really seen much of in the marketing materials for the film so far. But some new photos from Ant-Man have surfaced giving us a better look at Michael Pena (End of Watch), Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, Prisoners) and rapper turned actor T.I. (Identity Thief). Check out the Ant-Man supporting cast after the jump! Read More »
Bill Hader has yet to make a bad move. After crushing Saturday Night Live for years, he started with small parts in memorable movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Superbad, Tropic Thunder and Men in Black 3. He graduated to lead voice work with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, then went against type in the dramatic The Skeleton Twins. Later this summer, gets his first romantic lead in Trainwreck. He’s also both a credited writer and voice in Pixar’s Inside Out, his second film with the studio and will follow that up with some more voice work and a role in Steven Spielberg’s The BFG. Not a bad run.
In Inside Out, Hader plays Fear, one of Riley’s five emotions that helps her get through the day. Earlier versions of the film had Fear as one of the two leads, but that didn’t end up happening. We asked Hader about that change, how he picks projects, working with Spielberg as well as the place he thinks Pixar holds in film history. Read our full Bill Hader Inside Out interview below.

This weekend brings the touching and wonderful Inside Out, Pixar Animation‘s latest film, to theaters. And much like whenever a Marvel movie comes around, it seems the average movie goer runs through several different feelings every time they see a new Pixar movie.
The folks over at How It Should Have Ended have followed up their Five Stages of Watching a Marvel Movie with the equally accurate and amusing Five Stages of Watching a Pixar movie. If you’re seeing Inside Out this weekend, I’m confident in saying you’ll end up going through most of these stages. However, this time I think one won’t happen with most people. Find out what I’m talking about after the jump. Read More »
Inside Out hits theaters Friday and in grand Pixar fashion, it’s a film you’re going to watch to watch again and again. Until you can do that though, maybe you can relive the film with a brand new, limited edition screenprint officially licensed by Disney and Pixar. A brand new publisher called Cyclops Print Works is releasing a 23 color, Inside Out print by artist Stacey Aoyama. It goes on sale Friday and you can get an exclusive reveal below. Read More »
“We’ve done outer space, we’ve done the ocean, but the biggest set we’ve ever created is inside the mind of an 11 year old girl.” That’s Pete Docter, the co-writer and director of Inside Out, the latest film from Pixar. As Docter says, the film is set in the mind of an 11-year-old girl, giving the filmmakers an infinite canvas to work on, which was both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is the absolute creative freedom. The curse is there’s so much freedom, it’s hard to keep things focused, and one small change can affect the entire movie.
Over the course of the better part of a decade, Inside Out took many forms before the final version that hits theaters this weekend. And below, Docter, along with producer Jonas Rivera and star Bill Hader, told us about some ideas they had for the film, but then never made it in. Read about the alternate Inside Out ideas below.

There are still more than 180 days left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, and fans probably need all the help they can get passing the time until December 18th arrives. They’ll get some help in September when Force Friday unveils a bunch of new merchandise from Episode VII. Otherwise, you just have to bide your time until Christmas arrives.
And to help out with that, one YouTube user decided to spend his time waiting for The Force Awakens by combining all six of the Star Wars movies into a single video. I don’t mean that he edited all six movies down into a single movie. Instead, he took all six movies and put them on top of each other and played them at the same time. Watch all Star Wars movies at the same time after the jump! Read More »
This weekend, when you sit down to see Inside Out, you’ll probably be a little too blown away to get up once the credits start to roll. And if you stay for the credits, you’ll notice Lorne Michaels and Saturday Night Live are given special thanks. Speaking to director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera, I asked why that was. The Inside Out team spent a week on the set of the show learning how seemingly spontaneous entertainment works for a specific sequence in the film.

2015 is the rare year with not one but two Pixar films: this weekend’s Inside Out, and this fall’s still-mysterious The Good Dinosaur.
Most of what we’ve heard about the latter so far has had to do with its offscreen woes. The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled for release in 2014, but was yanked off the calendar for extensive retooling. Now that it’s on track for a fall 2015 release, Pixar and director Peter Sohn are eager to show off some of the goods.
In an hourlong presentation this morning, Sohn offered a first look at some charming new footage from the film. In addition, he offered new details about the story and making of The Good Dinosaur, including his inspirations for the movie. (Yes, Jurassic Park came up.) Find out everything we learned after the jump. Read More »
