Although it’s not a musical, Coco takes place in Mexico and pays homage to the country’s rich musical scene. And it’s a credit to the composers of Coco — and their cultural advisors — that the original songs in the Pixar film range from bolero ranchero, to son jarocho, to Huapango-inspired styles.
There’s a fair share of familiar mariachi songs and other styles scattered throughout the film, but the above genres describe the first three songs from Coco that were released in snippets this week. But most importantly, one of them has Gael Garcia Bernal singing. Yes, Mozart in the Jungle is finally flexing his singing chops.

For the most part, we know roughly what to expect from Pixar’s upcoming slate. Of the four films they’ve announced for the next three years, three are sequels — Cars 3, The Incredibles 2, and Toy Story 4.

Marvel’s Doctor Strange finished shooting in April and has already released two trailers, which makes it all the weirder that we’re just now learning that Benjamin Bratt appears in the film. And how we learned about his casting is even stranger: his name was listed with the main actors in the small print of the recent Doctor Strange movie poster that was released during Comic-Con 2016. Getting your name in the credit block on the theatrical one sheet typically means you have a big role in the movie. So the question is, who does Benjamin Bratt play in Doctor Strange?
