Tom McCarthy Adapting ‘Tommysaurus Rex’

Tommysaurus Rex

Between The Station Agent, The Visitor, and Win Win, we’ve developed a pretty good idea of what to expect from Tom McCarthy: low-key indies with touches of humor and pathos. But he’s shaking things up a bit with his upcoming The Cobbler by throwing fantasy and Adam Sandler into the mix. And now his next project after that could be an even bigger departure.

McCarthy has signed on to write and possibly direct the Tommysaurus Rex movie, based on an Image Comics book about a boy and his dinosaur pal. Get more details after the jump.

Annie trailer

Quvenzhané Wallis was an unknown when she was cast in the offbeat indie Beasts of the Southern Wild, but her winning personality and natural talent won her fans and earned her accolades in no time. Now she’s applying those qualities to a more conventional project, Will Gluck‘s updated adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Annie.

The first =trailer offers plenty of chances to see Wallis in action, singing and dancing her way through modern-day Harlem. Not even the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) can keep Wallis’s Annie down, and in seemingly no time at all she’s charmed her way into the life of kindly billionaire Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx). Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Paddington trailer

Seth MacFarlane is still working on that sequel to Ted, but in the meantime our screens will be filled with a kinder, gentler breed of stuffed animated animal. While the first Paddington trailer doesn’t reveal much, it does set the tone for a sweetly fantastical family adventure — basically, everything Ted was not. 

At the center of the story is the titular bear (voiced by Colin Firth), an unfailingly polite Anglophile who arrives in London from Peru to start a new life. He’s lost and alone until he’s taken in by the generous Brown family (led by Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins). Watch the cute new trailer after the jump.

This Roger Rabbit deleted scene explains so much. A video has been brought to our attention from the DVD of Robert Zemeckis‘ 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In it, Zemeckis and his crew discuss a deleted scene they refer to as “The Pig Head Sequence” which was the first completed scene in the film, but was later cut out. The scene explains why Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) awkwardly comes into in his office to meet Jessica Rabbit with his shirt off in the final film. He was washing off a giant ‘toon pig head.

Below, watch the Roger Rabbit deleted scene as well as some behind the scenes looks at how it was created. Read More »
