Star Wars and Jurassic Park aren’t the only classic franchises up for a revival this year. This November brings The Peanuts Movie, the first-ever full-length feature film based on Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved characters.
Though the new film gives the old property a 21st century makeover — complete with CG and 3D — it retains the same timeless quality of the source material. Or it tries to, anyway. We’ll see how that turns out when the movie actually premieres. Watch the new The Peanuts Movie trailer after the jump.

Pixar released zero new features in 2014, but the company is making up for that absence by opening two films in 2015. The first is Inside Out, due out in June, and the second is The Good Dinosaur, scheduled for November. While we’ve already seen a trailer for the former, the latter remains a bit more mysterious for now. Still, we’ll take what we can get — and today, that means a new bit of concept art and an updated official logo.
Get a look at The Good Dinosaur concept art and logo after the jump.

When you start thinking about the narrative possibilities in Pixar’s Inside Out, a headache may be in your future. The film is set inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl, as her five primary emotions – Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger – navigate through her life. So the film will visually represent how numerous functions of your mind work. Things like how you learn, remember, recall old memories, dream, react, move, literally anything you do as a human being can fit into this idea for a movie. It’s mind-boggling.
A new image from Inside Out has just come online showing how one of those things works in the movie. The image shows how the emotions sit down and watch a memory from the past. Check out the new Inside Out image below. Read More »

When offered the chance to interview Anna Kendrick, I didn’t hesitate. Year after year, Kendrick proves herself to be one of the most fun and interesting people in Hollywood, jumping between big-budget blockbusters and small independent films. She’s also becoming increasingly popular due to her Twitter feed, which is filled with the kinds of humor you and your friends share in private rather than in public. It seems pretty obvious that Kendrick, with one Oscar nomination already, is well on her way to becoming one of our generation’s “It” actresses.
Her latest film is Rob Marshall‘s massive Disney musical Into the Woods, based on the Tony award winning musical by Stephen Sondheim. It’s classic Broadway fare, mixed with familiar fairy tales and a whole new story that is sure to make audiences reimagine some of their favorite characters of all time.
Kendrick plays Cinderella in the film, but this is not the Cinderella you know – or the one you are likely to see next year in another Disney film. We talked about that, as well the way she’s navigating her career, Disney in general, that Twitter feed and even a burning Pitch Perfect question I’ve had since the film’s original release. Below, read our Anna Kendrick interview. Read More »
This Christmas, the collective entity of /Film pooled their efforts together to present this gift. Earlier this week, I polled all our writers and editors for their top ten holiday films of all time. I then gave each film on each list a 1 to 10 ranking. 10 points for first place, 1 point for 10th place, and added up the results. What were the results? Pretty predictable, if you ask me, but fun nevertheless.
Still, there were plenty of great movies on the list and weird subplots to explore. For example, only two of us put the same film number one, and it just so happens to be our overall top pick. However, another writer hasn’t even seen that movie. (Until late last night, as it turns out.) Which film is it? And what did it beat out? You’ll have to click below to read /Film’s 20 Favorite Holiday movies of all time. Read More »

The first trailer for Pixar’s summer 2015 release, Inside Out, was really more a reminder of the film’s existence. “Hey, remember us? I know we don’t have a movie in 2014, but we’ve done really awesome work in the past, and next year we’ve got something special for you.”
Now there’s a second look at the Pete Docter-directed film. This one is almost more of a tease because it only touches upon the main characters and doesn’t mention the story. Instead, it focus on the concept – that the emotions in your head are characters. But it’s two minutes of funny, beautiful footage from the movie. With seven months until release, that’ll do.
Check out the new Inside Out trailer below. Read More »
