Keanu Reeves - Super Bowl Ad

Not too long ago, we got our first look at Toy Story 4, which included a glimpse at some new toys coming to the franchise. The first teaser trailer introduced us to Forky, a craft-like “toy” made out of a spork, pipe cleaner and googly eyes. Then a second teaser introduced us to some carnival stuffed animals voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. But those aren’t the only new characters we’ll be seeing in Toy Story 4.

On Thanksgiving, a new episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon had Toy Story franchise voice actor Tim Allen on as a guest, and discussion inevitably turned to Toy Story 4. While Allen wasn’t really able to reveal anything about the story, which is largely shrouded in mystery, he did reveal one interesting tidbit that we didn’t know about before: Keanu Reeves will be voicing a new toy.

TOY STORY 4 teaser trailer

Get your tissues ready, Toy Story 4 is on its way. After Toy Story 3 closed out a pitch-perfect trilogy in 2010, it was hard to imagine that the story of Woody, Buzz, and co., could continue in any fashion without running out of creative and emotional steam.

Home Improvement Reboot

Later this month, we’ll see Roseanne return to ABC with a series revival that brings back the entire cast from the original sitcom. This opens the door for the network to possibly revisit some of their other beloved shows from the 1990s, and one of them might be Home Improvement.

Led and inspired by comedian Tim Allen, Home Improvement aired from 1991 to 1999. The series followed Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, the host of a hardware and fix-it-all TV show and the patriarch of a family with three sons (Zachery Ty Brian, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Taran Noah Smith) and an extremely patient wife (Patricia Richardson). Are they all ready to come back for a Home Improvement reboot? Tim Allen says the possibility “has been floated.” Find out more below. Read More »

The Santa Clause Honest Trailer

It’s the holiday season, which means all those Christmas movies that we avoid watching the rest of the year suddenly make it onto TV and into our DVD players and streaming devices again. One of the movies that people can’t seem to get enough of this time of year is The Santa Clause.

Tim Allen was at the height of his popularity when the first film in what surprisingly and unnecessarily became a trilogy arrived in 1994. So of course he had to star in a holiday movie where he brought his sarcastic personality to the North Pole and shook things up a bit. Now Honest Trailers has tackled what kids of the 1990s consider to be a holiday classic, and you just might see the movie in a different light after this. Read More »

It’s a small-scale hostage comedy that looks like the type of rough-hewn romp that could provide a bit of levity right now – which sounds like a gift we all can be thankful for. Read More »

Billy Crystal Screen Test for Toy Story

Whenever Pixar Animation has a strong desire for an actor to lend their voice to a certain character, they like to take dialogue from one of their performances and create animation to illustrate what the character would be like with their voice. This was especially true when Pixar was looking to make Toy Story their first feature film, and they had to show actors just what the movie was going to be like with their voice attached to it.

Even though Tom Hanks and Tim Allen ended up landing the roles of the cowboy doll Woody and the space ranger action figure Buzz Lightyear, Pixar had someone else in mind for the latter role, and it would have changed the character dynamic between the two characters severely. Believe it or not, Billy Crystal was the first choice to voice Buzz Lightyear, and Pixar wanted him for the role so badly that they animated Buzz Lightyear along with dialogue from When Harry Met Sally.
