Variety a depressing report about which future movies are being talked about the most on social media. Cars 3 is number 2? Gross

Screencrush here's to the behind the scenes administrators and shooting schedule people. This is hard work. Consider that Doctor Strange is absent for All scenes which involve Doctor Strange in Avengers Infinity War (now filming)

8 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Disney has its fair share of detractors, but few of them would point to the animation studio’s craft when criticizing the occasional sameness of its fairy tales and princess stories. Video essayist Jorge Luengo Ruiz has put together a six-minute video highlighting some of the best shots from more than 40 animated Disney offerings, from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” all the way to last year’s “Moana.” Both the video and a list of the featured movies are below.

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Dominates Social Media Buzz

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker” topped social media buzz last week with an impressive 152,000 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.

The studio released the soundtrack listing on Jan. 12, three days after Taylor Swift also posted a “first look” of her soundtrack music video with Zayn Malik. PreAct estimates that a total of 1.12 million new conversations have been generated for the sequel, which opens on Feb. 10.

The sequel depicts an escalating romance between the characters played by Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) with plenty of steamy scenes and shadowy figures from Christian’s past emerging. “Fifty Shades Darker” also led the “most talked-about movies” chart during the previous week in the wake of releasing an extended trailer during the season premiere of “The Bachelor.”

Lunchtime Poll: What Cartoon Should Come With a Trigger Warning?

15 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In last weekend's most hilarious Golden Globes presentation, Kristen Wiig & Steve Carell equated Fantasia and Bambi with utterly traumatic childhood experiences. Which begs the question...

What cartoon sends you spiralling into depression? 

Jose: Dumbo! As a giant eared child, it brings back so many traumas. 

Eric:  Dumbo.  When caged Mama's trunk reaches for Dumbo's trunk: merciless!

Nick: The Legend of Bagger Vance.

Kim: Toy Story 3 was a pretty traumatic viewing experience for me; I came out of the theatre with my eyes almost swollen shut from crying. (The holding hands when they all thought they were going to die, you guys!) If I harken back to a movie that sent me off the edge as a kid, I'm going to go with The Secret of Nimh. I know it Ends happily, but that movie is Dark. 

Jorge:  Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle throws me into a deep pit of out-of-body melancholy. »

New Trailer For Cars 3

12 January 2017 4:09 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Pixar’s Cars has always been considered the lesser of the legendary animation company’s output, putting jokes above heart and basically just a vehicle (I’m not apologising) to sell toys by the truckload. But then our first look at Cars 3 did something crazy and tease a slightly darker, more emotional story with Owen Wilson’s Lightning McQueen dealing with the fact that he might not have what it takes to be a race car anymore, the only life he’s ever know. A new extended look has come our way, shedding more light on that story that basically comes across as any come back sports movie you care to name. While this isn’t Pixar going gritty, it is intriguing to see them treating this red headed step child of a franchise a lot differently than we’ve previously seen.

Lightning Strikes Again in the New Teaser for Cars 3

12 January 2017 11:25 AM, PST | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

If you thought Cars 3 would offer a darker spin on the popular Pixar series, which I kind of did after the first teaser, this new one will disappoint a bit. It turns out it’s still totally a Cars movie, but at least they went back to focusing on Lightning McQueen, which from what I heard […]

Ariana Grande, John Legend to Perform Title Track for ‘Beauty and the Beast’

11 January 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ariana Grande and John Legend will perform a duet on the title track for Disney’s live-action movie “Beauty and the Beast,” starring Emma Watson.

The song will also be featured in the film, which opens March 17 amid high expectations.

The ballad was originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson in the 1991 animated film. Alan Menken wrote the music and Howard Ashman wrote the lyrics for the song, which received an Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Grammy Award.

The new rendition of the song is produced by Ron Fair, who was brought in to produce by Disney’s soundtracks chief Mitchell Leib, who also brought Grande and Legend to the project. Leib and Fair have collaborated on film music dating back to the highly-successful “Pretty Woman” soundtrack.

‘Inner Workings’: How Disney Innovated the Oscar-Contending Hybrid Short (Exclusive Video)

11 January 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Disney’s whimsical animated short, “Inner Workings” (playing in front of “Moana”), works like a quirkier “Inside Out” — a tug of war between logic and passion. It marks yet another innovative blend of CG and 2D, following the Oscar-winning “Feast” and “Paperman.” (Watch the exclusive clip below.)

Director Leo Matsuda takes us inside the cartoony body of a hapless clerk named Paul, whose brain nearly squashes his heart because of a neurotic fear of death.

“I’m a Japanese Brazilian, so I’m very disciplined, but I also like to party,” Matsuda told IndieWire.

At first, Matsuda toyed with the idea of using Disney’s Meander drawing program (introduced on “Paperman,” and the recipient of an Academy Sci-Tech award this year), but realized the paper texture look wasn’t appropriate. So he decided on CG »

New 'Cars 3' Trailer Shows What Happens to Lightning McQueen After His Crash

10 January 2017 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The first teaser trailer for Cars 3 sidestepped everyone's expectations. All it consisted of was Lightning McQueen getting into a gnarly car crash followed by a promise that everything would change. It wasn't exactly the smiling, big-eyed wonderment one expects from one of Pixar's more kid-oriented franchises.  But now we've got a longer trailer that shows what happens after Lightning's calamitous crash and thankfully things are looking a bit more optimistic. It's still not filled with jokes and Mater-related material that's so closely tied to the series, but it is setting up an underdog comeback story. And hey, if anyone is going to make the Rocky Balboa of anthropomorphic car movies, it's Pixar. Cars 3 hits theaters on June 16...

You know it's a good time of year when Pixar is teasing new movies. With the upcoming Cars 3, Pixar has taken a slightly darker approach but we are totally loving it.

Lightning McQueen has endured the biggest car wreck of his life and a new generation of racers are leaving him in their dust. But with a little help from trainer and racing technician Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), McQueen sets out to prove #95 is still the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be.

It will be Pixar's biggest showdown when Lightning McQueen races newcomer and top dog Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) on Piston Cup's grandest stage.

‘Cars 3’ New Teaser Trailer: Lightning McQueen Makes a Comeback

10 January 2017 7:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pixar has just released a brand new trailer for the next chapter in its perennially popular “Cars” series, “Cars 3.” The teaser trailer first aired on Espn during the college football national championship between Alabama and Clemson.

The third installment in the “Cars” franchise follows the return of Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson), who finds himself pushed out of the sport that he loves by a new generation of racers. In order to get back in the game, McQueen will need the talents of a young technician, Cruz Ramirez, who has dreams of her own. McQueen will also draw inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet.

New Trailer For Disney/Pixar's Cars 3 Picks Up Right Where The Announcement Teaser Left Off

10 January 2017 3:38 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Disney/Pixar has released a new trailer for Cars 3, and like the initial teaser it places the focus on drama over laughs, as Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) comes to terms with the fact that he's past his prime. The movie itself will almost certainly be a lighter affair (at least, we bloody hope so), as the trailer also teases a comeback story, with McQueen stepping up for another face-off with Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) with the help of new ally, Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo). Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game he will need the help of eager young female race technician Cruz Ramirez. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet, he will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage against his new rival, »

New extended sneak peek for Cars 3 arrives

10 January 2017 12:32 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Things are looking very bad for Lightning McQueen and the rest of Pixar’s Cars. The deeply depressing first teaser trailer giving way to further details of series favourite McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson)’s fall from grace. New racers on the circuit point to the unthinkable possibility that Ol’ Lightning may have run out of steam. Cue the dramatic hoist on which Pixar are hanging their latest film.

Today’s extended look at Cars 3 shows us a little more of the latest film to arrive from the Emeryville filmmakers. New cars means new voices, and we’ve been waiting to hear more from Cristela Alonzo (the canary yellow Cruz Ramirez) and Armie Hammer (voicing the neon blue Jackson Storm). The ‘Lightning’ and ‘Storm’ names are a neat nod to the battle that will take place in the latest film from Pixar, and the first from director Brian Fee. »

The Next Generation Gets On The Track In New Trailer For ‘Cars 3’

9 January 2017 7:47 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a long time, the “Cars” franchise was deemed as Pixar’s lesser catalogue entry, but one that has been a cash cow, reaping in millions and millions dollars thanks to licensed product sales. And so, that there’s a “Cars 3” is a no brainer. But not only is looking like the series has grown up a bit (check out the gritty first teaser), director Brian Fee calls it “the most human” film in the franchise yet.

‘Cars 3’ TV Spot Shows Lightning McQueen Racing Against Time (Video)

Two months after horrifying kids everywhere with a chilling image of Lightning McQueen in a brutal wreck, Pixar has given us a closer look into the red hot rod’s uncertain future with a new “Cars 3” TV spot that premiered during the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. While the trailer for “Cars 2” featured loads of exotic locales and goofy Mater moments, “Cars 3” went for intense circuit racing, “Inception”-style horn stabs and a complete lack of Larry the Cable Guy. In the new spot, we see McQueen (Owen Wilson) facing the possibility of becoming outdated by a new generation. »
