Why So Serious? (Literally)

According to HitFix, Warner Bros. requires DC Entertainment to make all of their upcoming DC Cinematic Universe films super-serious with… "No jokes"…

No joke

Into the Brain

If you happen to have a Disney Movies Anywhere account and happen to own one of Pixar's films on it (whether you bought it there or if you entered the DVD or Blu-ray's included digital copy code on Disney Movie Rewards), you can watch a first look at Inside Out… Ahhh, exclusivity. Don't ya love it?

Becoming Commonplace?

With all this talk of release dates and studios shuffling their schedules/slates, I've been going back to the same question I've been asking since the Frozen / Lego Movie days…

Cavemen and Cats On the Move

Remember how Fox/DreamWorks initially intended to release The Croods 2 and Puss in Boots 2 on 11/3/2017 and 11/2/2018 respectively? Remember how Disney/Marvel Studios nabbed those dates… Well, someone moved. The boy on the moon did

The New Dinosaur

Pixar's The Good Dinosaur has been down a rather bumpy road. Last summer, director Bob Peterson was removed from the project and his replacement director is still yet to be revealed (though I think, given what I've seen and heard, his co-director Pete Sohn has assumed the mantle), and then it was moved from its original May 2014 release date to November 25, 2015…

The Third Wave

Disney Infinity 2.0 is shaping up to be something spectacular, as we hear more and more announcements concerning playable characters. The Marvel side of things is pretty packed: In addition to the six Avengers, all five Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man and others, we're now getting villains. Things are getting jammed, and on top of that, we're getting - as we all wished - more Disney characters.

Back to Arendelle

Frozen is officially getting a sequel! Actually, sequels! Yep, multiple Frozen sequels…

They're going to be books.

Make Your Move

Warner Bros./DC have struck back with a slate that's a similar to Marvel's. A long string of untitled event films from DC that will be part of the DC Cinematic Universe that they are trying to construct…

Marvel's Space Odyssey

As always, reviews contain

Guardians of the Galaxy is almost something of a miracle. Here we have a film that's weird, bizarre, is an outright sci-fi fantasy with all these creative and cool little things in it (a talking, gun-toting raccoon and a talking tree) that's fortunately bolstered by an incredibly strong story with excellent characters, and also a vibrant script that is as hilarious as it is heartfelt. On top of that, it happened to be made for a big budget and was a mainstream blockbuster release…

Bits Journal #21

In an unexpected twist, Disney's live action studio is planning on making a film based on the science fiction novel A Wrinkle in Time. Something they hadn't adapted into a live action film before, something new! Shocker! (Before you say anything, yes I know Disney adapted it into a TV movie back in 2003.) Jennifer Lee herself, writer of Wreck-It Ralph and director/writer of Frozen, will pen the script - as the novel was a favorite of hers when she was young. This all adds up, because Lee did talk about getting around to making a sci-fi film, perhaps even direct one and break the mold. While Disney hasn't named a director yet, it's very possible that Lee will also get the gig.
