Cars 3 Posters Pit Lightning McQueen Against New Millennial Racers

Cars 3 Posters Pit Lightning McQueen Against New Millennial Racers
Disney has released two international posters for Cars 3, which show Lightning McQueen squaring off against two young racers Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) and Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). While Jackson Storm becomes his most contested rival on the Piston Cup circuit, Cruz Ramirez is actually on Lightning's side, serving as his new trainer to help him beat the young upstart. The first poster teases a scene we've previously seen in early concept art, which may be an homage to an iconic movie.

BadTaste.it debuted these posters, the first of which shows Lightning McQueen on the beach. You may recall that, back in May, Disney revealed concept art that showed Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez racing on the sand, which may or may not be an homage to the iconic oceanside race between Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in Rocky 3. The second poster, however, is set at a packed racing arena,

Disney's Mulan Live-Action Remake Gets Whale Rider Director

Disney's Mulan Live-Action Remake Gets Whale Rider Director
Disney has finally found a director for its highly-anticipated Mulan remake, with New Zealand filmmaker Niki Caro signing on to take the helm. This news comes just a few months after Ang Lee passed on the project back in October. But now the project is back on the right track. This hiring also makes Niki Caro the second female director at the studio to be at the helm for a project budgeted at over $100 million, following in the footsteps of Ava DuVernay and her film A Wrinkle In Time. Along with adding Niki Caro, the Mulan remake has brought on veteran Chinese producer William Hong as an executive producer.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Disney was considering other female filmmakers such as Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins and celebrated TV director Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead). With Niki Caro taking the reins on this project,

Disney's Mulan Live-Action Movie Gets Late 2018 Release Date

'Mulan' Live-Action Movie Planned at Disney

'Mulan' Live-Action Movie Planned at Disney
Following the success of Disney's live-action takes on Maleficent and Cinderella, the studio is developing a remake of their 1998 animated hit Mulan. The studio picked up the screenplay by writing team Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek, which centers on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the female warrior who was at the center of Disney's animated adventure. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink are on board to produce the Mulan live-action remake.

The original Mulan centered on the title character, voiced by Ming-Na Wen, who disguises herself as a man to take her ailing father's place on the battlefield. With the help of her beloved dragon sidekick Mushu (voiced by Eddie Murphy), Mulan becomes a brave warrior who becomes one of her country's most honored heroines. The original Mulan voice cast also included Miguel Ferrer, Harvey Fierstein, June Foray, James Hong, Pat Morita, B.D. Wong and George Takei. Mulan earned over

Obviously: Disney Announces Live-Action 'Mulan'

"Alice In Wonderland," "Malificent," "Cinderella," "Beauty & The Best," "Dumbo"....Disney has certainly found what they think is a winning live-action formula, and frankly I'm just surprised they haven't tried to cram all of this into one shared universe. Either way, another animated movie from the Disney vault is getting a live-action redo. THR reports that "Mulan" is getting a remake. There's a script in place from Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek, and Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (who both worked on "We're The Millers") are producing. The original movie did decent business in 1998, earning $336 million worldwide, along with a Golden Globe nomination, and it spawned the 2005 sequel, "Mulan II," which went straight to DVD, and that Disney would probably prefer you just forget about. So it's proven itself once, and Disney is betting on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan working again. No word...

Frozen directors say there are no plans for a sequel. Yet…

Despite being the biggest animated film of all time, with a worldwide gross of over $1.27 billion, the directors of Frozen were holding their cards close to their chest when word about a possible sequel was brought up during an interview with BuzzFeed to promote the new Frozen short, Frozen Fever.

“It’s been in the press that we are doing it, and we would ask each other, ‘Are we?’” said co-director Chris Buck said. “They’d have a date and they’d have a cast and it was like, Ok…”

His partner in crime, Jennifer Lee continued: “It all comes down to the story. “ike with the short, it was so daunting until we found the story. Then it was all of the things it usually is and we were thinking of every emotion and moment and feeling. I think that’s all we can do. Until we find our way into what’s next,

Father of the Bride stars then & now: From Steve Martin to Kieran Culkin
It's currently being reported that Steve Martin will be reprising his role as cynical businessman George Banks in Father of the Bride 3.

Martin is tipped to return alongside Diane Keaton as wife Nina Banks in the comedy, which will see the couple's son Matty revealing his plans to marry the son of a Us Navy Seal.

1991's Father of the Bride was based on the 1950 movie of the same, while 1995's sequel was loosely based on 1951's Father's Little Dividend.

As we anticipate a potential Part III, catch up on the major stars' exploits since - and compare how they looked then and now:

Steve Martin

Steve Martin - already an established Hollywood name before Father of the Bride - plays hapless patriarch George Banks, who suffers a series of ridiculous misfortunes (and a mild breakdown - the too-plentiful pack of hotdogs springs to mind) after his daughter announces that she's getting married.

'I Am Britney Jean' flops: 10 things with more viewers than Britney Spears documentary

It turns out not too many people wanted a piece of "I Am Britney Jean."

E!'s big Britney Spears documentary tanked during its Sunday (Dec. 22) premiere, earning just 706,000 viewers, according to USA Today. The two-hour special, which amounted to little more than a commercial for Spears' Las Vegas residency, took four months to film, chronicling the singer's preparations for her show.

You may think, "Oh, 706,000 viewers during a holiday week. That's not so bad." Well, it is bad. Here are 10 things that earned more viewers this week than "I Am Britney Jean."

1. A "Vampire Diaries" repeat on Thursday (Dec. 26) on The CW -- 887,000 viewers

2. A repeat of the "One Direction iHeartRadio Album Release Party" on Christmas night on The CW -- 773,000 viewers

3. The second hour of "The 12 Dogs of Christmas" on Christmas Eve on The CW -- 973,000 viewers

4. A Christmas Eve repeat of "Seinfeld" on TBS -- 980,000 viewers

Disney 53: Mulan

Directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook

1998/87 Minutes

The Mulan team began development in 1994 with a field trip to China; a three week voyage to photograph and draw local landmarks for inspiration and absorb local culture. In contrast to the angled, detailed artwork on The Lion King and Hunchback, the decision was made to simplify the style, paying homage to classical Chinese painting, which also provided the visuals for its opening credits. Despite its simpler artistry, Mulan was also innovative in its use of crowd simulation software (see “Scares”) and saw the advent of Faux Plane, used to add depth to two-dimensional images, most notably during the opening sequence at the Great Wall of China and the final act in the Forbidden City.

Originally, Mulan would have been a much humbler, straight-to-video short film titled “China Doll”, effectively a Chinese take on Pocahontas II, in which an oppressed and miserable

'Life of Pi', 'The Blob', 'Rise of the Guardians' and More on DVD and Blu-ray This Week

Life of Pi I don't always include the 3-D Blu-ray version when I put together this column, but with Life of Pi that's sort of the whole point right? I mean, if anyone talks about this movie the first, and sometimes only, thing they talk about are the visuals. Personally it was only an "okay" movie that I didn't really think amounted to much, but I expect it will have a rather impressive life on the home video market following its Oscar wins.

 

The Blob (Criterion Collection) Blu-ray I watched this Blu-ray on Sunday night and listened to the commentaries yesterday on and off throughout the day. This isn't exactly a feature-rich release and we're talking about more of a classic sci-fi film from the late '50s with a nostalgia factor for some and a certain level of intrigue from cinephiles, but is it a "must buy"?

Disney Blu-ray Roundup: ‘Brother Bear,’ ‘Hunchback,’ and ‘Mulan’ arrive in HD with DVD features only

For Disney, it looks like 2013 may be the year they finally start getting all of their animated features in the canon onto Blu-ray. One week after releasing their latest, Wreck-It Ralph, on home media, they’ve got three new releases, of slightly less popular animated so-called “classics.” (Disney’s also got Who Framed Roger Rabbit coming out today, which should be an event unto itself.) Brother Bear, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Mulan are all now available, all in 2-Movie Collections, with their respective direct-to-dvd sequels, which share the same title and simply vary in whether they have the Arabic or Roman numeral for the number 2. Though some of these releases may be for only the truest die-hard fan, it’s no surprise that Disney has once again succeeded at transferring these recent releases to high definition.

Brother Bear, the most recent of the trio, feels much of a

New DVD Blu-Ray: 'Life of Pi'

Moviefone's New Release of the Week "Life of Pi" What's It About? The best-selling novel about Pi, a 16-year-old boy who survives a shipwreck and is stranded in the ocean with a hyena, orangutan, wounded zebra, and Bengal tiger, is finally brought to the screen by Ang Lee. See It Because: While an ambitious undertaking, Lee's masterful storytelling and spellbinding cinematography made believers out of even the most devout "Pi" fans -- and it's easy to see why Lee and the movie's visual artists were rewarded with heaps of Oscars. Watch Ang Lee talk about working with a real tiger, in an exclusive clip from "Life of Pi" (video at the top of this post).

Wreck-it Ralph – The Blu Review

I’m surprised it took this long to come up with a concept like Wreck-it Ralph, the hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey from Disney which was something of a Toy Story for a generation weaned on Nintendo and Sega. Wreck-it Ralph was a lot of fun (much more so than Brave which took home the Oscar last week). Wamg’s Jim Batts gave the film 4 ½ stars (read his review Here)

http://www.wearemoviegeeks.com/2012/11/wreck-it-ralph-the-review/

Now Wreck-it Ralph has been released on Blu-ray and, unsurprisingly, it looks spectacular. Sharpness consistently appears immaculate on the Br disc. Even the widest shots of the “Sugar Rush” racers zooming around the track demonstrated excellent clarity, as every aspect of Wreck-it Ralph looked detailed and distinctive. No issues with jagged edges or shimmering materialized, and I saw no edge haloes or processing concerns. Of course, print flaws weren’t a factor, as they stayed away from this unblemished presentation.

Mulan Is Hitting Blu-ray To Celebrate Its 15th Anniversary

Just a few days ago, we determined Mulan and Mulan II were hitting Blu-ray in a combo pack that Disney was putting together to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the release of Mulan. If anyone were to ask me, I.d probably guesstimate The Little Mermaid came out 15 years ago, so clearly I.m not a very good judge of time. If you do remember this release, the 15th Anniversary set may be one to check out. Even greater, this will be the first time Mulan and its sequel will be available for purchase on Blu-ray, so bring on the digitally mastered sound and picture. The Mulan: 2-Movie Collection will hit the market on March 12, 2013 and will tell the tale of a courageous female warrior who also happens to fall in love with a courageous male warrior. The second film explores the warrior Mulan and Shang.s adventures as an

Who Framed Roger Rabbit And Three More Disney Titles To Hit Blu-ray In March

Disney has been working hard to bring the company.s entire back catalog of films on to Blu-ray and, in some cases, 3D Blu-ray for the first time. Now, Disney is announcing some family favorites for Blu-ray set to hit the market this spring. Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Mulan & Mulan II, The Hunchback of Notre Dame & The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, and Brother Bear & Brother Bear II on March 12. We still have a while to wait before Disney.s batch of March releases are available for purchase, but with some anniversary editions in the batch, it seems like the company felt the new Blu-rays warranted an early announcement. Additionally, three of the four sets will be two-movie collections, which may or may not be worth a purchase. Let.s take a look at the one non-double set, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, first.
