If Hollywood plays its cards right, there’s no way 2015 shouldn’t break every single yearly box office record on the books. The calendar is simply jam packed with huge movies. They may end up being good, or maybe they won’t, but either way they’re going to put asses in seats. These are films audiences are excited for. Films they demanded. In some case, films we’ve been waiting years to see or never thought we’d actually see.
All that said, there’s an embarrassment of potentially awesome movies coming out during 2015. I considered at least 50 before cutting back down to a top ten that really speak to my personal tastes. Then I threw in ten more for good measure. Either way, there’s no doubt that, as great a year as 2014 has been for film, 2015 undoubtedly has it beat in the “potential” column. Especially when it comes to those big time Hollywood blockbusters I tend to get really excited about.
So, without further ado, here are my most anticipated films of 2015. Read More »

Even as I scramble to get in a few more 2014 releases before I close the book on this year, I’m looking forward to 2015. Next year promises to be huge for Hollywood, packed as it is with big-name sequels like Star Wars 7 and Avengers 2. But it also looks like a good time for movie lovers, not just movie studios. A lot of those tentpoles look genuinely good. And a lot of riskier ventures look like they’ll pay off. And that’s not even getting into all of the indie gems buried ahead, waiting for us to discover them at Sundance or Toronto or what have you.
Films from the last category were naturally left off my list, as I can’t get excited for a movie I haven’t heard of yet or know nothing about. But for a list of the films (big and small) that I do know about, and am eagerly looking forward to, join me after the jump. Read More »
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 »

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.

Pixar’s Inside Out will be all about the emotions guiding 11-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), but it’ll also feature some of the outside influences that figure into her thinking — namely her parents, who’ll be voiced by Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane. And the film will go inside their minds as well.
Hit the jump for more about the Inside Out parents, including details on what their emotional headquarters will look like and new comments from writer/director Pete Docter about the story. Read More »

Most Pixar movies are emotional experiences, in that they inspire what the kids used to call “all the feels.” But their next film Inside Out is an emotional experience in a more literal sense, as it delves into the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.
Living within are five primary emotions that drive her: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), and Anger (Lewis Black). Get to know all of them as Pixar begins to release new Inside Out character posters. (We’ll update this post as more posters arrive.) Read More »
