'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' will have five post-credits scenes (yes, five)

James Gunn is sending out his social-media missives in recent days as deftly as he deploys Star-Lord, Gamora and Groot. Ahead of next month's release of his "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2," the director said on Twitter that there are five -- count 'em, five -- "post-credits" scenes bundled with his new movie, abundant even for a Marvel film. And amid an early wave of positive buzz (which Gunn is retweeting, as well), the director announced Monday on Facebook that he is indeed on board to write and direct "Guardians of the Galaxy 3."

"In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula - and some of the other forthcoming heroes - goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine," Gunn wrote about weighing the third "Guardians" film, "and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit."

Gunn noted how fraught completing a trilogy can be -- and how Hollywood is littered with third films that didn't live up to the first two (see: everything from "The Godfather 3" to "The Hangover 3). Yet the filmmaker also pointed to how his Guardians will begin interlocking with other realms within the Marvel universe, including the Avengers' "Infinity War."

"It will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond," Gunn wrote. "I will be working side-by-side with Kevin Feige and the gang to help design where these stories go, and make sure the future of the Marvel Cosmic Universe is as special and authentic and magical as what we have created so far."

We can expect Gunn to continue to drop tantalizing nuggets of news on social media ahead of "Guardians 2's" May 5 release.

James Gunn announces Guardians of the Galaxy double feature


“Four hours of Guardians bliss” are coming to theaters, according to James Gunn. The writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy and its upcoming sequel announced on Saturday that a double feature of his Marvel space operas are coming to select theaters in RealD 3D on Thursday, May 4.

This isn’t the first time theaters screened back-to-back Marvel movies — in fact, it’s actually one of the shorter marathons. In 2012, AMC Theaters screened the entire MCU Phase 1 lineup, beginning with the first Iron Man, as a lead-in to the premiere of The Avengers. A more exhaustive blitz took place in 2015 for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and last year, Marvel brought a Captain America-specific marathon to theaters ahead of Captain America: Civil War. Comparably, four hours seems like a breeze.



According to Gunn, those who show up for the Guardians double feature will receive “an exclusive poster and souvenir collectible button set.” Tickets for the extravaganza are on sale now. Check out the announcement and a new poster below.



Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 sees the return of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), Yondu (Michael Rooker), and Nebula (Karen Gillan) on a new space adventure. Kurt Russell (Ego the Living Planet), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), and Pom Klementieff (Mantis) will appear as new characters in Marvel’s galaxy far, far away.

The film opens in theaters everywhere May 5.

Theater cancels Beauty and the Beast due to gay character


 An Alabama theater has canceled its plan to screen Disney’s Beauty and the Beast due to the inclusion of a gay character.

The new owners of the Henagar Drive-In theater alerted its customers via Facebook that they have decided to not screen the film as previously planned after reports surfaced this week confirming the live-action remake’s version of LeFou (Josh Gad) is gay.

“When companies continually force their views on us we need to take a stand,” read the post. “If we can not take our 11-year-old granddaughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it. If I can’t sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it. I know there will be some that do not agree with this decision. That’s fine … We will continue to show family oriented films so you can feel free to come watch wholesome movies without worrying about sex, nudity, homosexuality and foul language.”

In Beauty and the Beast (read EW’s review here), LeFou is the sidekick of vain villain Gaston (Luke Evans). He flirts with Gaston in several scenes and is later shown dancing with another male character during the film’s finale.

“Bill Condon did an amazing job of giving us an opportunity to create a version of LeFou that isn’t like the original, that expands on what the original did, but that makes him more human and that makes him a wonderfully complex character to some extent,” Gad said at the film’s premiere. Of the finale, Gad called the dance scene “subtle but incredibly effective.”




Previously director Bill Condon told Attitude Magazine that Beauty and the Beast would feature an “exclusively gay moment” with LeFou, who is being cited as the first gay character in a Disney film.

“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” Condon said. “He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it.”

Disney did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Oscars 2017: On the eve of the nominations, our predictions for the top categories


This awards season marks a moment for small films with big ideas. From the musical wonder created by Damien Chazelle in La La Land to the profound specificity found in Barry Jenkins’ stunning Moonlight to the ache of Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, the three movies likely to nab the most Oscar accolades come Tuesday morning all grab hold of the heartstrings and don’t let go. They also all happen to be independently financed works distributed without the help of the major studios. In fact, of the likely Best Picture nominees, Denis Villeneuve’s meditative sci-fi film Arrival and Denzel Washington’s domestic tragedy Fences are the only ones from a major studio (and the same one to boot, Paramount). That is, unless 20th Century Fox scores a nomination for its inspiring period drama, Hidden Figures.


This year,  even the more conventionally masculine films — like the Western Hell or High Water, Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, and Washington’s Fences — are all highly emotive. And then there is Lion, Harvey Weinstein’s best shot at a Best Picture slot and a film that finds its power in sentiment.

Here are our Best Picture picks:

Arrival
Fences
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Hidden Figures
La La Land
Lion
Manchester By the Sea
Moonlight

Best Director

Wunderkinds Chazelle and Jenkins each re-imagined personal narratives in ambitiously creative ways, and New York playwright Lonergan never flinched from the paralyzing guilt that can haunt survivors of a tragedy. Who fills out the last two slots? French-Canadian filmmaker Villeneuve (Arrival) and Scottish director David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water) are the best bets for the final two slots, likely edging out veterans such as Martin Scorsese (Silence), Clint Eastwood (Sully), and Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge). Our predictions:

Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
Damien Chazelle, La La Land
David Mackenzie, Hell or High Water
Denis Villeneuve, Arrival
Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea

Best Actress

With Natalie Portman’s layered study of Jacqueline Kennedy in Jackie and Emma Stone’s vulnerable turn as an actress trying to make it by her own rules in La La Land, there are too many qualified candidates for the number of slots. Stone and Portman are locks. Academy members might find it hard to resist Meryl Streep, especially after her memorable Golden Globes speech, even though her light touch in Florence Foster Jenkins isn’t one of her best roles. Still, she may edge out Isabelle Huppert’s ferocious performance in the French film Elle and possibly Ruth Negga, the Ethiopian-Irish actress whose confident portrayal of Mildred Loving in Loving was a standout. There will likely be room for Amy Adams’ linguist from Arrival, but what about Annette Bening’s turn as an unconventional mother in Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women or Emily Blunt in The Girl on the Train? Her role has already sparked love from SAG and BAFTA. This is one year the Academy would benefit from expanding their field of nominees. Here’s how we think the category will work out:

Amy Adams, Arrival
Annette Bening, 20th Century Women
Emma Stone, La La Land
Isabelle Huppert, Elle
Natalie Portman, Jackie


Best Actor

Despite weathering headlines about his past conduct, including accusations of sexual harassment, Casey Affleck looks bound to land an Oscar nomination for Manchester by the Sea. Joining him will be Ryan Gosling for La La Land, Washington for Fences, and maybe Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge. Viggo Mortensen is likely to carve out that last slot after his SAG Awards nomination, leaving Tom Hanks’ performance in Sully out in the cold, along with Garfield’s turn in Silence. Our picks:

Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw RidgeCasey Affleck, Manchester by the SeaDenzel Washington, FencesRyan Gosling, La La LandViggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic

Best Supporting Actress

Every year, there is one race that’s all sewn up before the nominations are even announced. This year that sure thing is Viola Davis for her role as anguished housewife Rose in Fences. She already won the Tony for the same role in the play’s 2010 Broadway revival, and here she takes it deeper and to even greater effect. Manchester’s Michelle Williams has the only upset shot. Here’s our take:
Michelle Williams, Manchester by the SeaNaomie Harris, MoonlightNicole Kidman, LionOctavia Spencer, Hidden FiguresViola Davis, Fences

Best Supporting Actor

Mahershala Ali isn’t around for long in Moonlight, but his influence on the main character is profound and long-lasting. His biggest competition comes from newcomer Lucas Hedges for his role as the teenager grieving the death of his father in Manchester. The kid’s the real deal, but he may have to wait his turn. Others that could sneak in include Hugh Grant in Florence Foster Jenkins and perhaps Ben Foster in Hell or High Water. Here is where we think it will end up:


Dev Patel, LionJeff Bridges, Hell or High WaterLucas Hedges, Manchester by the SeaMahershala Ali, MoonlightMichael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals

See 17 Exclusive Photos From 2017's Most Anticipated Films



The LEGO Batman Movie (Feb. 10)

Brick or not, every Batman movie has three things: bats, brooding, and lavish balls where, as in the scene here, Bruce Wayne makes an entrance. "He'd much rather be doing Batmanny things," says director Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) of this moodier Caped Crusader (Will Arnett), who faces an identity crisis in this spin-off of The LEGO Movie. "He thinks Bruce Wayne is a bummer, but fortunately Alfred always entices Batman to go to a gala by permitting him to have a tuxedo dress-up party like Sex and the City." Well, sex and Gotham City. —Marc Snetiker



John Wick: Chapter 2 (Feb. 10)

This follow-up to the hyperviolent hitman thriller starring Keanu Reeves boasts a Matrix reunion between the One and Morpheus — Laurence Fishburne — who joins the cast as a character known only as "the Bowery King." "Laurence was saying he was a fan of the first film and was there anything in the second," explains Reeves. "I said, 'Actually, there is!' The Bowery King is a leader of this underworld in New York City, and he helps John in his mission." We suspect it has a high body count. —Clark Collis



CHiPs, March 24

As tempting as it may have been to poke fun at the '70s series about a pair of California highway patrolmen (Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox), writer-director-actor Dax Shepard (Parenthood) wanted to create a film update that drew inspiration from the Bad Boys and Lethal Weapon franchises. "It's definitely a comedy, but the stakes are very real," says Shepard, who stars as officer Jon Baker opposite Michael Peña's Frank "Ponch" Poncherello. "It's not happening in a satirical or heightened world." —Lynette Rice



The Lost City of Z (April 14)

When Charlie Hunnam agreed to play 19th-century explorer Percy Fawcett — opposite Robert Pattinson as fellow traveler Henry Costin — he knew it wouldn't be easy. The five-month shoot took him from his longtime girlfriend with few means of contact. But the separation helped Hunnam understand Fawcett's obsession. "I also had the benefit of shooting in Colombia, where there are somewhat cheap emeralds," Hunnam says. "So I was able to come back with a gift." Smart man. —Kevin P. Sullivan


Alien: Covenant (May 19)

Ridley Scott has learned the following from five decades of directing: "It's hard to scare people," he says. "It's a lot easier to make people laugh. But to really scare the s--- out of somebody? That's difficult." Scott has been doing exactly that ever since we saw a monster burst out of a man's chest in 1979's Alien. That cover-your-eyes kind of fear looks to continue with Alien: Covenant, about the crew of a colony ship who think they've found a great new planet when — surprise! — it turns out to be a terrifying one they need to escape. If 2012's kinda-sorta Alien prequel, Prometheus, was confusing, Scott says this film will provide some answers. "Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why." Michael Fassbender returns as David alongside Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, and—looking an awful lot like a certain heroine of old—Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them). The actress was wowed by her director. "He's a master! He's got the energy of ten 25-year-olds," she says. Plus, "he's sadistic. He loves the thought of making people scream in a cinema." —Sara Vilkomerson



Baywatch (May 26)

It's no secret that Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are playing lifeguards in this update of the '80s series that starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson (both of whom will have cameos in the film): Paparazzi appeared almost daily on the movie's Florida set to grab beefcake shots of the cast that includes Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas) as Efron's love interest and Priyanka Chopra (Quantico) as antagonist Victoria Leeds.
"When you're out on beach and open water, there's nothing you can do to get out of the line of sight [of paparazzi], so we just kind of embraced it," says director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), who made doubly sure the flick included lots of winks to the series' signature cheesecake moments. "The history of the show is to showcase beauty," Gordon says. "There's a beat where one of the characters sees someone running and asks, 'Is she running in slo-mo? And why is she wet but not that wet?' Stuff like that shows that we are in on the joke."
But there's more to the movie than Efron's ridiculously hard abs, he insists. "Story was a priority for me," says Gordon, who cast the High School Musical star as an ex-Olympian hired to generate good PR for Johnson's cash-strapped lifeguard unit. "I wanted the action to be especially good. Fortunately, everyone was on board for that." On board and hot, of course. —Lynette Rice



Wonder Woman (June 2)

There is a point in any good origin story where the hero has to decide whether to step out on her own, forge her own path, and fight for what's right. For Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), her moment comes when she disobeys her mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen); breaks into the heavily guarded armory on her idyllic all-female island of Themyscira; and steals the Amazon's mythical sword, the "god killer," before heading to Europe to help rescue humanity. "This is her moment," says director Patty Jenkins (Monster). "She's heard all the terrible things about man's land. But she's also heard that mankind is in need and under duress. This is her great moment to make the decision to be the one to try and save them." —Nicole Sperling



Captain Underpants (June 2)

Tra-la-la! This year may see the return of Wonder Woman and Spider-Man, but it will also introduce a new superhero in a cape (and little else). Based on Dav Pilkey's long-running and frequently banned kids' books, the animated Captain Underpants follows George (Kevin Hart) and Harold (Thomas Middleditch), two fourth graders who hypnotize their tyrannical principal (Ed Helms) into stripping down, tying a curtain around his neck, and declaring himself Earth's newest defender. "[Helms] has managed to tap into the sheer stupidity of Captain Underpants," director David Soren (Turbo) says, laughing. "He's a delusional superhero who thinks he's got all kinds of powers and has literally zero ability beyond just that of a middle-aged man." Call him the clueless champion in cotton. —Devan Coogan


The Mummy (June 9)

In director Alex Kurtzman's shuffling-dead reboot, Tom Cruise is Nick Morton, an amoral tough guy who runs afoul of a resurrected ancient Egyptian. Russell Crowe is Dr. Henry Jekyll, and you wouldn't like him when he's angry. The film could also resurrect Universal's movie monsters — arguably the original cinematic universe. "It's our ability to sympathize with [these] monsters that has made them endure," says Kurtzman. —Darren Franich


War for the Planet of the Apes (July 14)

A girl stands facing a gorilla as the massive creature reaches out to her. In the real world, the scene is ripe for the evening news. In War for the Planet of the Apes, it's a rare moment of serenity. The third film of the reboot series picks up two years after the conclusion of 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Caesar (Andy Serkis) is now a changed ape, battle-hardened and at risk of losing all sympathy for mankind. In a last-ditch effort to save his simian tribe, Caesar undertakes a desperate mission to find and kill the leader of the human forces, the fearsome Colonel (Woody Harrelson). It's during this journey that Caesar and his companions happen upon a young mute girl named Nova (Amiah Miller), a character who appeared as an adult (Linda Harrison) in 1968's Planet of the Apes and its first sequel. "The battle is not just between the humans and the apes, but in Caesar's soul," says returning director Matt Reeves. "The girl is his pull-back to his empathy and — for lack of a better word — his human side." —Kevin P. Sullivan


Dunkirk (July 21)

In May 1940, the allies faced a dire scenario. The only escape from Hitler's blitzkrieg for the nearly 400,000 soldiers stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, was across the English Channel. Over the course of eight days, the vast majority of troops were rescued. In the U.K., the evacuation of Dunkirk is considered a pivotal historical moment, yet most Americans don't know about it. That's about to change.
For Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan enlisted Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, and even One Direction's Harry Styles in his cast, but the star is 19-year-old Fionn Whitehead, a London native making his film debut. "One of the key things you came across reading firsthand accounts of Dunkirk was how young and inexperienced these soldiers were," Nolan says. "It felt very important to me, especially for Fionn's part, to find somebody very new." Whitehead, who plays a British private named Tommy, arrived in Dunkirk weeks before filming to prepare physically for the demands of the role, wading into the frigid water as practice. "I did a lot of swimming in a water-sodden wool uniform, hobnail boots, and with guns," Whitehead says. "It was hard work, but I really enjoyed it. What's life without a bit of a challenge?" —Kevin P. Sullivan


Okja (Summer 2017)

Don't call Bong Joon-ho's next film a monster movie. Yes, the Snowpiercer filmmaker rose to international prominence with 2007's creature feature The Host. And sure, Okja is named for another mysterious creature, but Joon-ho says, "It's a very shy and introverted animal. It's a unique animal that we've not seen before." The story follows Okja and Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), a young South Korean girl, and their adventure leads to New York City. In one climactic sequence storyboarded here, Lily Collins' Red races onto the streets of Manhattan. "Red is part of a group of animal rights activists that figure into the story," teases Joon-ho, who filmed in the Financial District. "On Wall Street, it's the heart of capitalism," the director notes. "On the surface is a story about an animal, but it's essentially a story about capitalism." Nothing monstrous about that! —Darren Franich


IT (Sept. 8)

Hey, kids. Want to play peekaboo? Here we see Pennywise the dancing clown in his unnatural habitat: the labyrinth of the sewer system beneath the town of Derry, Maine. In the new adaptation of Stephen King's IT, Bill Skarsgård (Allegiant) dons the frilly suit and white face paint of this bloodthirsty jokester — just one incarnation of a shape-shifting evil that feeds on fear, misery, and the occasional child.
Director Andrés Muschietti (Mama) says this monster unsettles precisely because he doesn't lurk in the shadows. "Pennywise shows up, he's front and center, and he does his show. He has an act," Muschietti says. "So it's weird all the time, and every little thing implies a further threat." Watch out for his punchlines. They'll knock you dead. —Anthony Breznican



Blade Runner 2049 (Oct. 6)

Earlier this year, director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) went out to dinner in Budapest with Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford and found himself with a ringside seat at a fight they've been waging for 34 years. It was midproduction on Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to Scott's sci-fi classic, and Scott, who's executive-producing the new movie, had come for a visit. Over the meal, though, the friendly chitchat between Scott and Ford soon devolved into a not-quite-as-friendly squabble about the soul of Ford's character, Rick Deckard.
The original Blade Runner, set in a dystopian 2019 Los Angeles, centered around Deckard, a "blade runner" tasked with hunting and "retiring" (i.e., killing) four rogue "replicants" (human-seeming androids). In the years after Scott's neon-rimmed noir was released in 1982, hardcore fans have debated the seemingly unanswerable question of whether Deckard himself is a replicant — one who just doesn't realize it. Turns out Scott and Ford have been fighting about it all this time too. "It was very funny, I must say, to find myself in the literal crossfire of Harrison and Ridley, arguing as to why [Deckard] should be a replicant and why he should be human," Villeneuve says. Scott has insisted Deckard is a replicant. Ford and Blade Runner coscreenwriter Hampton Fancher have just as firmly been in the "no" camp. "As a fan, that's a dinner I will remember for all of my life." Villeneuve's fellow fans have been waiting most of their lives for this sequel, and on Oct. 6, 2017, the wait will be over. —Sara Vilkomerson



Justice League (Nov. 17)
We've seen Batman battle Superman. We watched Deadshot form an unlikely alliance with Harley Quinn. But the team-up that DC Comics fans are really waiting for is when the entire Justice League come together to save the world.
"I'm super happy with the chemistry of my league of justice doers," says director Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who's in the middle of editing the November release, which will delve into the details of how these individual heroes readjust their egos to fight as a collective. Turns out aligning these disparate—and outsize—personalities can be as difficult as fighting bad guys. Take Ezra Miller's version of the Flash, the League's overly excitable kid brother who uses humor to mask his pain. "Flash is Ringo Starr," says Miller, pictured here alongside allies Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). "He annoys everybody, but he doesn't have any specific beef with anyone." Miller also offers up Flash's blunt assessment of his fellow Leaguers. "Uncle Fish Curry [Aquaman] is very grumpy. Dad [Batman] gets grumpy too. (He's had a long life of fighting crime.) Wonder Woman is very considerate, so even though she's annoyed with the Flash, she's still very compassionate." Yeesh. Don't get him started on Superman. —Nicole Sperling



Coco (Nov. 22)

Between next summer's sequel Cars 3 and 2018's Incredibles 2, there's still a plum Pixar original on the studio's slate. Coco, directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3), plunges into the rich cultural depths of the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) through the story of Miguel (newcomer Anthony Gonzalez), a 12-year-old amateur guitarist whose family has banned music, believing it to have cursed their clan. When he discovers a link between himself and his dead musical idol (Benjamin Bratt), Miguel, in the scene shown here, sneaks into the singer's tomb and commits a (literally) grave act of guitar theft that inadvertently sends him to the Land of the Dead — and face-to-face with the very distressed souls of his great-great-grandparents. "We had this enormous responsibility to do right by this culture and not lapse into stereotype or cliché," says Unkrich, who secured an all-Latino voice cast (including Mozart in the Jungle's Gael García Bernal) and sought Mexican authenticity through story consultants and songwriters. Yes, Coco is packed with music, but Unkrich stresses, "It's not a break-out-into-song musical." Half of Coco's characters are skeletons, after all: "Breaking" things is a touchy subject. —Marc Snetiker



Our Souls at Night (Winter 2017)

Fifty years after they played gorgeously blond newlyweds in Barefoot in the Park, Jane Fonda and Robert Redford are reuniting for this drama based on the final novel by Colorado writer Kent Haruf. The American icons, who also toplined 1979's The Electric Horseman, star as widowed neighbors who begin sleeping together — as in, getting some shut-eye in the same bed. Though nonsexual, the relationship becomes the talk of their small town. In one scene, the characters check into a Denver hotel. "I nudged [Redford] with my elbow," Fonda says, "and I said, 'Duh, Barefoot in the Park, Bob!' I felt so girlish, and I realized I was nudging him to be less serious, just like I do in that film. And just like I do with him in real life." —Joe McGovern

Warner Bros. reports that early results show that “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” has grossed a strong $11.2 million on opening day in China. The Harry Potter follow-up grabbed 64% of the box office of the top five movies and quintupled the takings of Disney’s “Moana.”

BREAKING: TOY STORY 4 AND THE INCREDIBLES 2 GET NEW RELEASE DATES!



We know you’re counting the days until Toy Story 4 and The Incredibles 2 come out in theaters. How do we know this? Because we are too, obviously. Today Pixar Animation Studios announced updated release dates for each movie, so here they are so you can mark your calendars accordingly: The Incredibles 2 will come out June 15, 2018 and Toy Story 4 will come out June 21, 2019.

Here’s what we know about each so far:

TOY STORY 4

John Lasseter, director of the original Toy Story and Toy Story 2, will direct the film, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the Toy Story gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three Toy Story films. The film is written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack.
“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” said Lasseter. “We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. Toy Story 3 ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.”

THE INCREDIBLES 2
“It’ll be more Incredibles. I’m not going to give up anything! I come down on the side of surprise,” says Brad Bird.

“Happy DisneyVersary 2016” | Here's the genius trick 'Jungle Book' used for natural light


LOS ANGELES — By now you've heard that Disney's The Jungle Book, with its lush and breathtaking jungle-scapes, was filmed entirely in a mop closet at Staples Center.
Nwait, that's not true. That's a dumb thing I just made up.

But! It was filmed in a warehouse in downtown Los Angeles, which is all fine and good in the era of photo-real computer graphics. Except for one thing.

The Light.

No amount of green-screens and post-production can cast proper light upon the subject who is in camera — in this case, Mowgli, as played by Neel Sethi. And with casting proper light comes casting proper shadow.

Director Jon Favreau got this one figured out. We want to be like you, Favs.

Check out the video below to see how The Jungle Book put the shadows of passing elephants, giraffes and apes on Sethi in real time. Its simplicity is one of those forehead-slap moments.





This and other behind-the-scenes extras will be available when The Jungle Book comes to Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 23, and on Blu-ray and on-demand on August 30.

"Fanclubdis es Noticias" - Star Wars Celebration: Updates on Episode VIII and young Han Solo movie.

Episode VIII and the young Han Solo headlined the closing event of Star Wars Celebration on Sunday.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and story group chief Kiri Hart joined with Episode VIII writer-director Rian Johnson and Han Solo filmmakers Chris Miller and Phil Lord to present a tease of what fans can epect in the years ahead from the galaxy far, far away.
As the program began, Kennedy had this praise for Johnson. “I don’t say this about many people, but I think Rian moves the camera as well as Steven Spielberg.”
Then Johnson came out and said it was challenging to begin writingVIII while VII was still finishing. While still developing the idea for the movie, he urged the story group to watch the Gregory Peck fighter pilot drama Twelve O’Clock HighThe Bridge on the River Kwai,Gunga DinThree Outlaw Samurai, and Humphrey Bogart’s Sahara.

“This movie is going to start right were the last one left off,” Johnson said. “That final scene in VII, I want to see what happens next.”

EPISODE VIII

Johnson said it was important not to let his awe at directing a Star Wars movie get in the way of making a good one.
“It was an incredible experience on many different levels,” said Johnson, who is near the end of principle photography. “You come into it with nostalgic feelings, but your job is to get beyond that very quickly. The ultimate responsibility is to sit in front of Mark [Hamill], sit in front of Luke Skywalker … and then get to know Mark as an actor and start working on a script and get back to the work of filmmaking.”
He said The Force Awakens launched the new story with a bang, but “second film is where we start zooming in on the characters and getting to the heart of them, challenging them, and pushing them deeper.”

YOUNG HAN SOLO

Still to come …

THE FIRST POSTER FOR MOANA HAS US WISHING WE WERE AT THE BEACH

The ocean is calling, and we’re ready for it. A couple of weeks ago, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared a fun video of himself performing the Haka during a recording session for Moana, and today we have the first poster for the film to share with you!


Moana Sailboat Poster



In the poster, we see Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) and Maui (The Rock), with the wind in their hair, sailing the sea to a nearby island. The vibrant scene is appropriately coupled with the phrase: “The ocean is calling.”

The Rock debuted the poster earlier today and noted, “Here’s the first look at the incredible @DisneyAnimation movie we’ve been working very hard to bring to life for the world to enjoy. It’s a visual and singing journey unlike anything you have ever seen before. And get ready… THIS SUNDAY I’ll bring you the EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK teaser trailer for #MOANA.
