Making of The Good Dinosaur

Next week brings the perfect movie for the whole family to see after a tasty Thanksgiving feast, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur. The film hits theaters everywhere on November 25th, bringing us the story of a lost dinosaur named Arlo who befriends a wild little boy who he names Spot and tries to survive in the wild on his own.

We’ve already got a good idea of just how much we’re going to cry at this movie thanks to the most recent trailer, so why not take a look at the hustle and bustle behind the scenes of making a feature length animated movie. Below we have a few videos looking at the making of The Good Dinosaur, from recording sessions with the actors to a scoring session for the soundtrack and even director Peter Sohn brainstorming and storyboarding with the crew.

With Thanksgiving just a couple weeks away, we don’t have much time before we get our second Pixar Animation film of the year, The Good Dinosaur. Everything we’ve seen from the prehistoric adventure looks like it packs another fantastic adventure with an unlikely friendship that will make tears come out of our faces.

Now we have a new The Good Dinosaur clip that doesn’t get the waterworks flowing, but does show off what an asset Sam Elliott‘s voice can be. The Big Lebowski and Prancer star plays the tyrannosaurus rex Butch, the patriarch of a family who has seem some scary things in his time, and he tells Arlo (Raymond Ochoa) around a campfire of just how he got that big scar on his face.

A new trailer for The Good Dinosaur just arrived this week, giving us an even better look at Pixar Animation‘s latest original tale, focusing on a lost dinosaur named Arlo and his feral young human friend he meets along the way. It teases exactly the kind of high quality storytelling and animation we’ve come to expect from Pixar.

And now you can marvel at just how gorgeous the animation truly is as some high resolution The Good Dinosaur images have surfaced online. Pixar has certainly come a long way since Toy Story hit the big screen 20 years ago. Read More »

The Good Dinosaur trailer

So far we’ve seen two different trailers for Pixar Animation’s second film of 2015, The Good Dinosaur. And while we’ve seen some stunning animation and have a basic idea of the story about a young apatosaurus named Arlo befriending a feral young boy in the wild, we’ve only heard one word of dialogue from the movie.

But that changes today in a quick new The Good Dinosaur trailer from overseas. This one has Spanish voiceover and bumpers, but it doesn’t make the trailer harder to follow because all the dialogue is in English, and it includes more lines from Raymond Ochoa as Arlo, as well as the first dialogue from Sam Elliott as the gruff, intimidating tyrannosaurus rex named Butch and more.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

It’s weird to see a trailer for a film that feels like it has to throw out a recap definition of the Weather Underground, that group of radical leftists who in the early ’70s embraced violent tactics (riots, bomb attacks on banks and government buildings) in order to protest government actions and argue for revolution. But time marches on, and audiences don’t remember everything.

That said, the trailer for The Company You Keep actually argues that time does not march on, as it follows the efforts of a dogged young newspaper reporter (Shia LaBeouf) as he tracks an at-large WU member (Robert Redford) after the arrest of another formerly free suspect (Susan Sarandon). Redford directed based on a script by Lem Dobbs (The Limey, Haywire) and the trailer makes it look like a pastiche of classic Redford political thriller hits All the President’s Men, and Three Days of the Condor.

There’s an appeal to that classic thriller style, however, and the large cast (Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, and Chris Cooper also appear) lends a real prestige feel to the proceedings. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »

Robert Redford‘s directorial effort The Company You Keep already boasts a top-notch cast, with Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Brit Marling, Shia LaBeouf, Stanley Tucci, Richard Jenkins, Stephen Root, and Redford himself all signed on. But apparently,there’s still room on the roster for more impressive talent. Anna Kendrick, Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson, and Sam Elliott have just boarded the cast of the political thriller, along with 11-year-old newcomer (and America’s Got Talent finalist) Jackie Evancho.

The Lem Dobbs-scripted adaptation of Neil Gordon‘s novel centers around Jim Grant (Redford), a former Weather Underground member who’s been on the FBI’s wanted list for the past three decades. When a determined young reporter uncovers the truth about his past, he’s forced to go on the run. With so many new actors joining up, there’s a lot of info to sort through, so hit the jump for more info on their roles.

I don’t know what to make of the trailer for The Big Bang. The way this thing is cut, it looks like a weird blend of neo noir, Frank Miller and early Guy Ritchie. Is that good, or bad? I really don’t know. What I do know is that Sam Elliott and William Fichtner have supporting roles, and I’ll watch them in almost anything. Check out the trailer after the break. Read More »
