Andrew Kreisberg fired

It took the Harvey Weinstein case to get Hollywood to finally open its eyes to the flood of sexual harassment and sexual assault situations that have been happening in the industry for years (sometimes lasting decades), and the dominoes continue to fall.

The latest person to go down is Andrew Kreisberg, the co-creator and executive producer of The CW superhero shows The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, and Supergirl, who as of today has officially been fired by the Warner Bros. Television Group because of sexual harassment allegations.

Meanwhile, more details have surfaced about the conduct of Pixar guru John Lasseter in the wake of him taking a leave of absence from the animation studio last week due to his own sexual harassment issues, which he referred to as “missteps.”

It seems we now have the answer. Are you ready to learn the shocking truth about the Cars universe motorcycles?

Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer

It’s finally happening. Kingdom Hearts 3 may finally be in our grasp. And it only took creator Tetsuya Nomura 12 years, five filler games, and four “remixes” for us to finally get a Kingdom Hearts 3 release date. And it’s not even a real date, just an entire year — 2018.

Oh, well. At least we got a reveal that Toy Story will be one of the new worlds that Sora, Donald, and Goofy get to explore in the Disney-Square Enix collaborative franchise. That, new gameplay demos, and brand spanking new graphics that look even better than Pixar’s then-cutting edge film, are breathing hope back into my cold, hollow soul that believed we’d never get a Kingdom Hearts 3 until I was dead. I can wait around for one more year.

Toy Story Batman v Superman mash-up

Not every unanswered question in a movie deserves an elaborate fan theory “explaining” away plot holes or filling in background gaps that the movie purposefully didn’t fill. Sometimes a movie is just a movie. But one Toy Story fan theory gained some traction because it came from an unusual source: someone who worked on the original film.

Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton has since debunked the theory, but for the conspiracy theorists out there who just can’t accept that Andy’s dad simply isn’t a factor in the Toy Story movies, here’s a look at what one man claims happened to that character.

Cars 3 trailer

Sylvester Stallone turned the training montage into a staple of the sports movie genre with his Rocky films, but it looks like the people at Pixar are big fans of Rocky IV in particular. The brand new Cars 3 trailer that just debuted looks like this movie is essentially a remake of Stallone’s sequel, and Cars 3 even has its own version of Dolph Lundgren’s steroid-fueled Russian boxer Ivan Drago: a sleek new car named Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). See him go head-to-head with Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) in the new Cars 3 trailer below.

Dante's Lunch, Pixar short

While Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory didn’t make a splash at this year’s Academy Awards, the studio did take home a trophy for the short film attached that was attached to it, Alan Barillaro’s adorable Piper. Now the company has released its latest short, Dante’s Lunch, which serves as a nice introduction to the determined, long-tongued dog that will appear in Pixar’s Dìa de Muertos film Coco when it comes out later this fall.

Pixar's Classic Movie References

The movies of Pixar Animation are known for having little easter eggs that reference the other movies from the animation studio. However, they’re also chock full of references, homages and tributes to other classic movies. Some are more obvious, such as Rex seen in the sideview mirrors of the Barbie Corvette in Toy Story 2, just like the T. rex in the original Jurassic Park. But others you may have never noticed before. And if you’re curious about the dozens of classic movie references in the Pixar movies, a video has assembled a ton of them for your perusal.

Inside Out Outside Edition

This past summer, Pixar’s Inside Out really turned on the waterworks for people of all ages, and the film has ended up on a lot of year-end Top 10 lists for the films of 2015 (including some of ours coming this week). It should come as no surprise that the movie about feelings really gets our own feelings stirring, but what might be a little surprising is that Inside Out without the feelings will still deliver a bit of an emotional gut punch.

A University of Utah film student has put together an Inside Out Outside Edition that uses only the scenes outside of Riley’s mind, without the feelings to let us know what’s going inside her head. And you might be amazed at how well these scenes still work. Check it out below! Read More »
