How Seth Rogen Convinced Disney Legend Alan Menken to Create the Music for 'Sausage Party'

Fri, 08/05/2016 - 09:30

When Sausage Party hits theaters on August 12, it'll be the first R-rated animated movie to get a wide theatrical release since 2007's Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And while it may look like a straight-up Pixar spoof on the outside, Sausage Party is so much more than a spoof in that it works really hard to be just as funny, emotional and memorable as anything from the animation wizards at Disney and Pixar. Part of that authenticity comes from its music, as Sausage Party -- like many...

See a New 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Spaceship

Thu, 08/04/2016 - 06:36

Ships are very important in the Star Wars universe. After all, the very first scene in George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope in 1977 features a relatively small, nimble spaceship being fired upon by another vessel that gradually devours the screen. The shot prompted opening-week audiences to break out into gasps and applause. The stark contrast of the smaller Alderaanian cruiser fleeing a monstrous Imperial Star Destroyer communicated volumes to audiences. By instinct, we knew...

Why This August Will Be a Great Month for Movies

Thu, 08/04/2016 - 05:51

Poor August. Statistically, when it comes to the summer movie season, everything is pretty front-loaded. The biggest movies arrive in May, then sort of trickle in throughout June and July. But when we hit August it's a total crapshoot, full of movies that never seem like they belong anywhere on the movie calendar. It's almost as if they're orphan movies, destined to live out their theatrical dreams at the very end of a big season when people aren't really paying...

Karl Urban Explains Why 'Pete's Dragon' Is a Perfect Family Movie

Tue, 08/02/2016 - 16:32

Karl Urban is an ideal tough-guy actor precisely because he's not exactly showy about it. It's not as though he's got Schwarzenegger-scale muscles or some bad-boy persona in real life (he's actually a great family man, but more on that in a bit), he just has an intimidating air to him. Even in something like Star Trek, where he plays the ship's reluctant doctor, there's still a formidable edge to Urban. Naturally that's why Urban has been cast in so many...

'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' Is The Final Harry Potter Story

Tue, 08/02/2016 - 07:21

2016 is a good year to be a fan of J.K. Rowling's wizarding world. If you live in London you can see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child performed live. If you don't, you can pick up a copy of the official script for the play. It may not be a novel like most fans are used to, but don't let the new format fool you. This isn't some arbitrary spin-off. The Cursed Child (pictured above) is the official eighth story in the Harry Potter saga. And, as Rowling just revealed, it is...

Tue, 08/02/2016 - 07:15

Coming off the heels of outlaw crime drama Ain't Them Bodies Saints, independent filmmaker David Lowery appeared to be an unlikely candidate to remake a Disney family adventure. But the trailers and clips that have been released so far have made it apparent that Lowery's vision for the new remake is strikingly different from the original. Released in 1977, Pete's Dragon starred Helen Reddy in a musical for children about a boy and his dragon who run away from an abusive adopted...
