Fuller House

Netflix presented a panel on Fuller House to the Television Critics Association with returning stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, with creators Jeff Franklin and Bob Boyett. Franklin and Boyett spoke with a roundtable of journalists later in the day about the new incarnation of TGIF classic Full House.

Fuller House embraces the nostalgia with some self-referential humor, including a reference to the Olsen twins and several references to classic Full House episodes. “Who gets to do that?” Franklin said. “Who gets to reference 192 episodes that have been watched over 29 years and have everybody get the jokes? It’s great. It was a lot of fun. There was a lot of stuff I didn’t want to do because we tried not to do that too much, but it was just fun to do those kinds of jokes.”  Read More »

the good dinosaur easter eggs

If you’re a fan of Pixar Animation, you know that the animators and filmmakers love including little easter eggs for fans to find. Whether it’s characters appearing in each other’s movies, the Pizza Planet truck or the bouncy ball with the red star, there’s always goodies to find in a Pixar movie. However, it was quite the challenge to include many of them among The Good Dinosaur easter eggs due to the film’s prehistoric setting with a lack of technology and encompassing nature. But we now know how Pixar fit in one of their most famous easter eggs into the film. Read More »

‘Fuller House’ Teaser: Welcome Back, Tanners

Fuller House teaser

Who’s ready for a heady dose of ’90s nostalgia? Netflix has debuted a new teaser for its Full House sequel Fuller House, and unlike that last trailer it actually shows the whole gang, not just Comet 2.0. Well, the whole gang minus Michelle, anyway, since both she and her real-life counterparts off enjoying high-powered careers in fashion. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

jumanji remake director

After several years of development and a revolving door of screenwriters, the upcoming remake (or reboot, if you prefer that parlance) of Jumanji has landed a director in Jake Kasdan. And while it’s too early to have an opinion on this project in any way, we do hope Kasdan is ready to work at the speed of a charging rhino – because Sony already set a release date last year and that is still in place.

2016 razzie nominations

The 2016 Razzie nominations are here and, as always, they’re patently ridiculous and squander a fun premise so they can pick on obvious and occasionally undeserving targets while ignoring the movies that actually deserve your scorn.

But let’s back up for a moment. The 2016 “Golden Raspberry” nominations, which “celebrate” the worst movies of the year and act as a sort of anti-Oscars, have been revealed. 50 Shades of Grey, Pixels, and Fantastic Four lead the pack. You can check out the full list of nominees below.

The Jungle Book set visit

On December 11th, 2014, I visited a soundstage in downtown Los Angeles where director Jon Favreau was shooting his adaptation of The Jungle Book. As you may have noticed, Disney has begun to do a big rollout of the film, and we’ve been given the go-ahead to share something from our set visit. What I saw on set was amazing, but the studio has asked us not to talk about the technological process behind the film’s creation at this time (that will come later). So instead I present to you some of the methodology behind the adaptation.

I’ve always been a fan of Jon Favreau‘s work for the long haul, from his performances as an actor, to his more indie features like Made and Chef, and of course his larger, more accessible films like Elf and Iron Man. But when it was announced that Favreau was going to direct an adaptation of The Jungle Book, I was a little confused. It didn’t seem to fit in with his tastes. So I was interested to find out: Why did Jon Favreau want to make The Jungle Book? His answer is rooted in the power and emotion of mythic storytelling, and, among other things, Star Wars.

emma stone cruella de vil

Last year, screenwriter Kelly Marcel was given the unenviable task of writing a live-action movie centered around Cruella de Vil, the nastiest and most inherently unlikable character in the Disney animated canon. Other baddies may have larger plots (like seizing control of entire kingdoms), but the villainess from 101 Dalmatians wants to abduct and murder puppies so she can make coats. Compared to the buffoonish Gaston or the power-hungry Evil Queen, she is literally Satan.

Now, Disney is currently looking to cast overwhelmingly lovable Emma Stone as a young Cruella in the appropriately titled Cruella. That’s certainly step one in finding some way to make a cruel dog killer a viable lead character in a tentpole movie. Read on about the Emma Stone Cruella de Vil casting below.

Inside Out Outside Edition

This past summer, Pixar’s Inside Out really turned on the waterworks for people of all ages, and the film has ended up on a lot of year-end Top 10 lists for the films of 2015 (including some of ours coming this week). It should come as no surprise that the movie about feelings really gets our own feelings stirring, but what might be a little surprising is that Inside Out without the feelings will still deliver a bit of an emotional gut punch.

A University of Utah film student has put together an Inside Out Outside Edition that uses only the scenes outside of Riley’s mind, without the feelings to let us know what’s going inside her head. And you might be amazed at how well these scenes still work. Check it out below! Read More »
