If you’re a true Pixar Animation fan, then you’ve probably heard all about the meticulously crafted theory that explains how all the movies could exist within the same universe. It’s called The Pixar Theory, and it uses several key details, including some of Pixar’s famous easter eggs, to tie all of the movies together.
Though Pixar Animation has acknowledged the existence of the theory, they haven’t officially confirmed or denied its validity. However, a new video released officially by Disney comes close to affirming the wild theory that connects all the movies. Weaving through every Pixar Animation feature film, from this year’s Finding Dory all the way back to Toy Story, the video acts as a sort of Russian nesting doll of Pixar’s easter eggs that connect each movie to the one that came before it.

When it comes to entertainment today, the nostalgia train is chugging along rather smoothly as Hollywood remakes, reboots and recycles anything and everything that people loved from decades ago. Now that children of the 90s are starting to have kids of their own, movie studios, TV networks and streaming services are all trying to occupy their spare time with shows like Girls Meets World and Fuller House, as well as sequels like Jumanji. But the one movie that hasn’t been capitalized upon again (at least not quite yet) is the live-action animation hybrid sports comedy Space Jam.
There’s plenty of nostalgic love for the Warner Bros. Pictures movie that brought Michael Jordan and all of the Looney Tunes together on the big screen, and that’s blinded people as to just how lazy the movie really is. Either that or they just don’t care. But Honest Trailers is here to remind you as they deliver the third movie in their Fan Appreciation Week line-up.

UPDATE: Sony has officially announced a release date for their animated Spider-Man movie, along with another director and confirmation that Miles Morales will be the main character. You can find the details below.
Even though Sony Pictures appears to have Spider-Man back on track thanks to their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring the webslinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the studio is still working on a completely different version of the wallcrawler.
An animated Spider-Man movie was first announced at CinemaCon back in April of 2015 with The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller producing alongside Avi Arad and Amy Pascal. The movie was originally slated for a release in the summer of 2018, but has since been pushed back to Christmas. However, we still haven’t heard how this animated Spider-Man movie will be different from the new live-action Spider-Man franchise, other than breaking new visual ground.
That changes today if a new casting call is to be believed, as it indicates that we might finally see a version of Spider-Man that fans have been clamoring for since The Amazing Spider-Man was in development a few years ago. Read More »

The Nut Job 2 trailer is here and it wants to ask all of the important questions. Questions like “Will nature rise to the occasion and declare war on humanity when we descend on one too many precious ecosystems?” and “Is the world tired of CG-animated dancing animals yet?” and “Are farting pugs worthy preview-capping jokes?” Let’s try to answer ’em.

When it comes to animation, Walt Disney Pictures has long been a shining example of how to tell stories that not only strike an emotional chord but also deliver stunning visuals. Though there are some who think the House of Mouse is overrated, you’d be hard pressed to find another animation studio that has so abundantly and consistently delivered such magnificent movies.
Now one editor has assembled a supercut showing off the incredible visuals that Disney has brought to life over the 80 years that they’ve been making feature length animated films. With over six minutes of footage spanning from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937 to Moana in 2016, this video will have you wanting to go through your entire Disney catalog all over again.

There are a handful of movie websites I visit every single day for both work and avoiding work and Rotten Tomatoes as one of them. As the internet’s most popular (and also most prone to fanboy raging) movie review aggregate site, Rotten Tomatoes assembles reviews from critics and tabulates a score based on the number of positive reactions versus negative reactions. The resulting percentage is worn as badge of honor for movies that are well-liked and treated as proof that “critics don’t get it” by movies that are not.
But you surely know all of this already because you’re reading a movie website and also probably stop by Rotten Tomatoes on a semi-regular basis to learn the critical consensus on a given movie. Anyway, the reason we’re here now is that the 2016 Golden Tomato winners, the round-up of the best-reviewed movies and television shows of last year, have been revealed.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re less than a month until we get a new movie featuring the Dark Knight in theaters. However, this take on Batman will be far more lighthearted than the one we saw in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The LEGO Batman Movie has Will Arnett voicing the building block version of the Caped Crusader, reprising the role he masterfully played in The LEGO Movie a few years ago. It’s one of my most anticipated movies of 2017, and a couple new TV spots show off some new footage from the comedic take on Batman, complete with a showcase of how badass Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, is going to be in this movie.
