Disney Animation’s Rich Moore Moves to Sony Pictures Animation

In a big get for Sony Pictures Animation, the studio has nabbed director Rich Moore. Moore, who worked on The Simpsons and Futurama before creating hits for Disney with Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, and Ralph Breaks the Internet, will now be taking his talents to the up-and-coming Spa, which is coming off one of its better years after earning an Oscar for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Animation Director Rich Moore Defects from Disney to the ‘Spider-Verse’ of Sony

Animation Director Rich Moore Defects from Disney to the ‘Spider-Verse’ of Sony
Animation director Rich Moore has left Disney to join the “Spider-Verse” of Sony Pictures Animation, where he will develop, produce, and direct original animated features as well as advise on upcoming movie and series-based projects. This is a major defection for the post-John Lasseter Disney, but also a major coup for the Oscar-winning Sony (led by President Kristine Belson).

Lasseter recruited Moore to Disney a decade ago after he needed a change from “The Simpsons,” and it appears that the time was right for another creative change. “Ten years is a long time,” Moore said in a prepared statement, “but when you’re working on incredible films with people you love as I have these last 10 years, that time flies by. I will always cherish my days at the Walt Disney Animation Studios and I leave with the faith that the studio is in good hands. I remain a lifelong

Disney Celebrates Fox Acquisition At CinemaCon; No ‘Star Wars: Episode IX Footage’, No Marvel 2020 News; ‘Avatar 2’ A No Show

  • Deadline
Refresh for updates Disney’s’ CinemaCon session kicked off with compilation sizzle of Disney and Fox films including X-Men, Dark Phoenix, Bohemian Rhapsody, Zootopia, Avengers: Endgame, extolling the library fruits of its recent merger.

There was one moment which was a wink at the audience: Wolverine asked in some X-Men footage, “What is this place?” which then cut to a shot of Black Panther, as if he was asking the King of Wakanda for the answer.

“I’ve put some sizzle reels together in my time, but that one blows my mind, I’m still just getting my mind around this,” said Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn on the top of Disney’s CinemaCon session which didn’t feature any stars or directors onstage, just Disney-Fox suits. The session was ended with the first 17 minutes of Toy Story 4.

Jordan Peele's 'Us' Delivers a Mind-Blowing $70 Million Debut

Jordan Peele's 'Us' Delivers a Mind-Blowing $70 Million Debut
Universal's release of Jordan Peele's Us dominated the domestic box office, not only out-performing the opening weekends for several recent horror hits, but delivering the second largest opening ever for a live-action, original picture, topping the weekend box office with over $70 million. As a result, the 2019 box office continues to improve over the month of March after struggling to begin the year. Overall, this weekend was the third straight to outperform the same weekend last year. At #1, with an estimated $70.25 million (~49.6% of all tickets sold among the top 12 films), Us topped the weekend box office with the third largest opening of all-time for an R-rated horror film, blowing away 2018's The Nun ($53.8m opening) and placing behind Universal's own Halloween, which opened with $76.2 million last October. The film also decimated the opening for Peele's previous film Get Out, which was a massive hit back in 2017 following a $33.3 million debut.

Aaron Paul, Chelsea Handler and Meg Ryan Topline Sun Valley Film Fest
Aaron Paul is an Idaho boy at heart. The three-time Emmy winning star of “Breaking Bad” and producer and actor on Nickelodeon’s bawdy, subversive animated series “Bojack Horseman” currently makes his home in Los Angeles, but Paul was born in Emmett, a sleepy city about 30 miles outside of Boise, and escapes to the spud state to unwind and visit with family every chance he gets.

“I’ve lived in California for most of my life,” Paul told a packed crowd gathered at the Argyros Performing Arts Center in Ketchum, Idaho on March 15. “I love California. But Hollywood can be crazy. Coming back to Idaho is like a sanctuary for me.”

Paul’s Coffee Talk was one several standout events at the eighth annual Sun Valley Film Festival, which ran March 13-17 in the snowy playground for skiers and snowboarding aficionados. Paul, whom Variety honored at the fest with the Svff 2019 Pioneer Award,

Open the Vault! Disney's Entire Movie Library Will Be Available on Its New Streaming Service

  • Popsugar
Disney's upcoming streaming platform, called Disney Plus, just landed a major edge over its competitors: the entire Disney vault.

The streaming service doesn't launch until later this year, but Disney CEO Bob Iger has already given movie fans a major reason to look forward to it, since he reportedly said that Disney Plus will contain "the entire Disney motion picture library," effectively making the notion of the iconic "Disney Vault" null and void. That means the studio's 1920s cartoons, as well as early hits like 1937's Snow White and 1941's Dumbo, will be available to stream on top of modern classics like Frozen, Zootopia, and Wreck-It Ralph.

While attending an investor meeting held in St. Louis, Iger explained that once Disney Plus goes online, the marketing trick of releasing certain films for only limited periods of time before they're hauled "back in the vault" will be dead, paving the

‘David Crosby’ Documentary And ‘Her Smell’ Topline 8th Annual Sun Valley Film Festival

  • Variety
Eight years in, the Sun Valley Film Festival, running March 13-17, has established itself as a laid-back, picturesque event, where you’re as likely to be struck by the beauty of the setting — in the shadow of Idaho’s Bald Mountain — as by the films on screen.

Per executive director Teddy Grennan, this Idaho resort town, a three-hour drive from Boise, already has a rich cinematic history.

Averell Harriman, who owned Union Pacific, wanted to start a ski town in the mountains, and he didn’t know how to launch it. So he hired this wunderkind, one of the original Mad Men who launched Miami Beach in the early 1900s. And the guy said, ‘Look, you own a rail line. Invite up all the Marilyn Monroes, all the hangers-on, and put it on the house.’ And they did just that. The only thing they asked for was to own the pictures of them — Hemingway,
