anchorman 3

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy was a descent sized comedy hit but it still took nearly a decade for the stars to align for a sequel. And when that film was released, director Adam McKay said that Anchorman 2 would be the last adventure of Ron Burgundy. Of course, he retracted that statement in a separate interview a couple months later, clarifying that he doesn’t know how the movie will play “until about two years after they come out, when people see them on repeat viewing.”

Now that the filmmaker is out promoting his new film The Big Short, McKay is again being asked about a third Anchorman film. And this time it sounds like he has some potential ideas. What could Anchorman 3 be about? Lets hear Adam McKay speculate about a possible third film, after the jump.

George Lucas Force Awakens

George Lucas has been very quite for the past couple years, but over the past few weeks the Star Wars creator has made comments in a variety of publications about the future of the franchise he created. First George Lucas revealed that Disney was not interested in his involvement in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and didn’t like the stories he outlined for the sequel trilogy. Force Awakens filmmaker JJ Abrams was quick to respond, claiming that Disney made the decision before he came on board: the studio “had decided they wanted to go a different way” with the story. Well now Lucas has given a new interview, where he talks more about not being involved in the new film, and reveals that Disney has yet to screen the film for him. He also talks about the long-running Special Edition controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han.

khan in star trek into darkness

The Khan reveal landed with a thud in Star Trek Into Darkness. We all knew Benedict Cumberbatch was playing Khan going into director J.J. Abrams‘ sequel. The film was heavily criticized for its twist, and co-writer Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers), echoing Abrams’ thoughts, admits it was a mistake to hold off on revealing Khan.

steven Spielberg force awakens

Over the weekend actress Daisy Ridley revealed that Steven Spielberg has seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens three times. This isn’t surprising as Spielberg is a mentor of Episode VII filmmaker J.J. Abrams and a longtime partner of Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy. I’m sure the legendary director was brought in by Abrams and Kennedy to give notes during the editing process. But what did Steven Spielberg have to say about Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Read the Steven Spielberg Force Awakens comments after the jump.

The Good Dinosaur reviews

Last month I had the opportunity to visit Pixar Animation Studios and preview the company’s next film The Good Dinosaur. You can read what I learned about the making of The Good Dinosaur here and read my interview with director Peter Sohn. While at Pixar, I had that opportunity to sit down with some of the other creatives behind the film, here is my interview with Denise Ream, who has an interesting story as she started out as a Visual Effects Producer at ILM working on films like Star Wars, Men In Black, Harry Potter and Mission Impossible movies before jumping across the bay to Pixar where she worked on Up, Cars 2, Brave, The Good Dinosaur and the upcoming sequel Cars 3.

Hit the jump to learn about how she went from Star Wars to Pixar, what its like to be on a project that loses a director and gets completely reworked, the choice of making the characters cartoony against a almost photo real backdrop, the daunting quest to find voice actors for this film, and how do you hide a Pizza Planet truck in a Dinosaur movie? All this and more in our Denise Ream interview, which you can read now after the jump.

creed single shot

I think most of us can agree that Creed is one of the best movies of this Holiday season, if not the entire year. Its not just a nostalgia sequel/spin-off as some have written it off as, but a great movie. And since seeing the film two weeks ago there is one sequence which I can’t get out of my head, Adonis’s first professional match as a boxer which is presented in one single shot. Was it really one single take, or was it cleverly stitched together like the scenes were in Birman? Find out how the Creed single shot boxing sequence was accomplished, after the jump.

Angry Birds Hatchlings

There are people who put off their holiday preparations until the very last second, leaving them to screech into the shopping mall 15 minutes before closing on Christmas Eve. And then there are people who have all their holiday cards sent out and all of their gifts tied up before they even turn their calendars to December. The Angry Birds, it turns out, belong to the latter camp.

Though The Angry Birds Movie won’t open for another six months — and though Christmas isn’t for another three and a half weeks — Sony Pictures has released an extra-special, extra-adorable holiday teaser featuring the fuzzy little Hatchlings. Watch the Angry Birds Hatchlings teaser after the jump.  Read More »
