2017 summer movie preview

The summer season is almost upon us and you know what that means: movies are about to get bigger, louder, and more expensive. And, if we’re lucky, they’ll also be pretty great!

The /Film team examined the list of every single major wide release (our indie and streaming preview arrives next week) hitting theaters this summer and argued, debated, and occasionally agreed on which 25 movies we’re most looking forward to watching over the coming months. The staff then voted, ranking them from “movies we want to see” to “movies we want to see right now.” So here’s our 2017 summer movie preview, which features superheroes, evil dolls, talking cars, pirates, sharks, dead strippers, World War II, and so much more.

Dante's Lunch Pixar Easter Egg

It’s long been established that Pixar Animation loves inserting Easter eggs into their movies that reference the many other films they’ve made over the years. They even consistently tease future movies. And in the case of the recently released short film Dante’s Lunch, which is linked to Pixar’s upcoming feature Coco, there’s an Easter that’s both a reference to older movies and an upcoming one. But it’s so small and quick that you probably didn’t even notice.

Find out Dante’s Lunch Pixar Easter egg below. Read More »

Cars 3 Cast - Natalie Certain

This summer brings the third installment of the Cars franchise. While the Pixar Animation film series is a monster in the merchandise department, it hasn’t been all that beloved by critics and general audiences. Many will contend that the movies are intended for kids, so that’s not a big deal, but that hasn’t stopped most of the rest of Pixar’s movies from being top notch pieces of animated cinema.

The good news is that what we’ve seen from Cars 3 so far has been more than intriguing. The trailers give the feel of an aging athlete drama with Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) not being the young hotshot racer that he used to be. In addition, the film will boast some new characters who will be voiced by Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria, and you can see them below. Read More »

Pixar short Lou

It’s not like Pixar needs to try that hard to convince people to go and see their features, but it’s always nice when they sweeten the deal with an accompanying short film. A few months ago we got our first little peek at Lou, the new six-minute short directed by Dave Mullins and Dana Murray. Today we’re getting even closer with the mysterious monster of the title, who’ll make his way to theaters ahead of Cars 3.

Feast your eyes on a Lou first look photo below, and get many more details about what exactly this movie is.
