Pixar theory

The films of Pixar seem as if they are primarily separate stories. (With the exception of the obvious relationship between sequels.) One theory, however, posits an elaborate timeline in which the advanced technology seen in Wall-E is developed over the course of hundreds of years, with a starting point seen in Up and the Toy Story films, and which explains the stars of Cars¬†and the ever-evolving intelligence of animals. And Boo, the young heroine of Monsters Inc., has a surprising role in the whole cycle. Watch the Pixar Theory video below. Read More »

Frozen (4)

At this point, mocking sexy adult costumes is just as much a Halloween tradition as trick-or-treating or petty vandalism. But even by the usual ridiculous standards, these Frozen-inspired outfits take the cake. See the sexy Frozen costumes — including tarted-up versions of Elsa, Anna, and yes, even Olaf — after the jump.

Interstellar TV spots

In addition to being one of the most highly-anticipated movies of late 2014, Interstellar is also one of the most mysterious. The Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi adventure hasn’t played any festivals or otherwise allowed for any early reviews, and even the marketing campaign has been careful not to give away too much.

And naturally, all of that secrecy just makes us more curious about the movie. For now, we’ll take what we can get. Today, that means four new TV spots which reveal a bit more Interstellar footage and clarify some of the plot details. Watch the Interstellar TV spots after the jump.

Clerks 3 news

Like almost all Kevin Smith films, Tusk has been incredibly polarizing. I found myself in the middle of the road, seeing great promise in a film with some major problems. Some loved the audaciousness of Smith’s horrific tale, while others just hated everything about it. Smith himself is very proud of Tusk, calling it the closest thing he’s ever done to what he imagined he’d be making as a filmmaker.

The box office tended to agree with the haters. Over its opening weekend, Tusk only grossed on $1.4 million in over 600 theaters, pretty much guaranteeing a certain cult status.

The legacy of Tusk is already paying dividends, however. The project lead to a friendship between Smith and Johnny Depp, and spinning Tusk off into Yoga Hosers.¬† Plus, in a new podcast, the director also revealed Tusk gave financiers¬†confidence to give him money for Clerks III. Read More »

Don Hertzfeldt Simpsons

In the past couple years the producers of The Simpsons have allowed a few different filmmakers and artists to go wild in revamping the show’s opening “couch gag.” Banksy envisioned a mine in which slave labor animates the show and grinds up kittens to stuff Bart Simpsons dolls; Guillermo del Toro scripted kaiju battles and cameos from Alfred Hitchcock, Stephen King, and a legion of other horror characters from his own films and others. This week, Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt got his shot, and the Don Hertzfeldt Simpsons couch gag has got to be the most bonkers animation that will run on mainstream TV this year.

Avengers 3 split

If the pattern of Marvel’s last couple team-based movies holds, Avengers: Age of Ultron will likely be a gigantic affair, in terms of production scale, promotion, and (hopefully) reception. And with Avengers 3 known to be in the pipeline for a likely 2018 release, expectations will run high for that film to surpass everything Marvel has done before it. So could Marvel follow in the wake of other studios and split the final chapter of this set of Avengers stories into two parts? It’s unlikely, but below we’ll discuss a report that claims exactly such a plan is under consideration.

Along with the two-film rumor, there’s a slightly more credible report floating around, saying that the Age of Ultron trailer will arrive with Interstellar.
