In 1984, a young Disney animator named Tim Burton directed his live-action debut, the short film ‘Frankenweenie.’ Disney planned for the short to run before a theatrical re-release of ‘Pinocchio,’ but once they screened the completed project, they fired Burton on the spot.
Burton, of course, went on to a somewhat legendary career as a filmmaker and in 2010 made Disney over $1 billion on ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ And now, in 2012, Disney is finally OK with the idea of a little boy who brings his dead dog back to life.
The ultimate superhero crossover movie is almost here. Marvel released the full trailer for ‘The Avengers’ today, which shows Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury in action. While the teaser trailer hinted at the action to come, this new trailer lays it all out there for you (including plenty of shots of a rampaging Hulk).
The 2012 Oscars managed to include the expected and shocks all at the same time. Odds on favorite, ‘The Artist’, won five awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Director for Michel Hazanivicius. But ‘Hugo’ gave it a run for its money, also bringing home five awards (though none in the major categories).
This summer’s animated adventure ‘Brave’ is notable for a few reasons: One, it’s Pixar’s first foray into the world of fairy tales (something their partners at Disney are quite good at) and, two, it’s Pixar’s first female-driven film. While the plot seems reminiscent of ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ – a young Scot fights the odds to battle a fierce beast while becoming a valiant hero – it’s the little things we see in this new extended clip that set ‘Brave’ apart from the rest.
Every year, when the Oscar nominations are announced, a considerable amount of time is spent debating who was snubbed. But for every film that was expecting to get nominated and didn’t, there’s a film that no one was expecting to get nominated and did. This is the story of those films. The movies you’ll look back on and wonder exactly how the heck it ever got nominated for an Oscar.
It’s easy to feel out of the loop at an Oscar party. Odds are many of the films nominated this year for Oscars didn’t open up in a theater near you and even if they did, you may have been too busy to actually see them all. That’s where we come in.
There are a lot of movies to look forward to in 2012. So many, in fact, it’s easy to lose track of everything. We took a look back at some of the best movie trailers of the year to give you an idea of what 2012 has to offer at the movie theater. While the year is still young, there are already some amazing trailers.
Disney’s upcoming movie, ‘Oz, the Great and Powerful’, boasts an A-list cast — Oscar nominees James Franco, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams plus Mila Kunis — and a storyline that will take audiences to the origin of the Wizard himself. But Warner Bros., who holds the rights to ‘The Wizard of Oz’ film, would like to put a stop to that film.
‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ is a real movie. And this is not, despite its ridiculous premise, something made on the cheap that will go direct-to-DVD. This is a big summer movie from Fox, produced by Tim Burton, directed by that guy who directed ‘Wanted’ and starring some familiar faces. Based on the first trailer, it could either be awesome or completely stupid – so which is it?
