Disney Animation and Pixar are heading into a bright new era of culturally influenced moviemaking, ushered in by Frozen’s Nordic-inspired production design and continued through Big Hero 6 and last year’s fantastic Polynesian fairy tale Moana. For their next trick, Pixar is traveling to the Land of the Dead for Coco, a Mexican-inspired adventure about a boy who finds the soul of a long-dead musician in the underworld. It also seems like Coco is taking a cue from Moana, because all of the cast for Coco is Latino.
Bong Joon-ho’s latest is going to hit Netflix in a few short weeks, and the buzz around it is already starting. Okja had a fantastic premiere at Cannes, despite the controversy over whether Netflix will give their films theatrical releases, and the promotion for its release is already gearing up. A new series of Korean character posters helpfully describe almost every cast member (the eponymous super pig is absent), and separates all their traits into loins, shanks, and prime cuts.
Acting can be a thankless business. With all the work, the rejection, the dealing with people you don’t get along with, the exhausting hours and press tours, it’s a wonder than any celeb can stick it out as long as some of our greatest stars have. Sometimes all that disappointment can push an actor to the brink — and then the right audition at the right time for a fantastic role can pull them back again. That’s exactly what happened to Gal Gadot, a.k.a. our new Wonder Woman: before she was cast, she almost quit acting altogether.
Guardians of the Galaxy—Mission: Breakout! is the first Marvel themed ride to hit a U.S. Disney theme park. The plot: visitors must help the Guardians escape from the Collector’s fortress, in which they’ve been imprisoned. The ride was built within the repurposed Tower of Terror and features six unique ride experiences and a hallway full of Marvel Easter eggs. It’s also part of its very own Marvel universe, separate from the movies.

Just in case you forgot, we’re getting another movie based on Dr. Seuss’s immortal holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas pretty soon. And also just in case you forgot, said title character is going to be voiced by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch. And said Grinch movie, now has its first official, extremely fuzzy promo art.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters seems to be working all the Prestige TV angles it can find. After locking down Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown and Bloodline’s Kyle Chandler, he film has just cast Charles Dance, a.k.a. the winner of Game of Thrones’ Number One Dad award.
One of the big Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 rumors that never came to fruition was that Nathan Fillion, longtime James Gunn collaborator, would make a cameo. He did film a scene, which ended up deleted, but according to a new post by Gunn today, he was almost in another scene, though he didn’t have lines. Unfortunately, it had to be cut in favor of not slowing the movie down. As it turns out, Fillion was never on set, but appeared in a few fake movie posters that would have been on the side of a theater in the cut scene.
The Weinstein Company has a notorious history of dumping projects after sitting on them for ages, and now harvey is poised to do the same with Suite Francaise, the World War II drama starring Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts. The movie will be premiering on Lifetime on May 22, to little fanfare, so set your DVRs accordingly.
Adam Sandler’s reign over Netflix is far from over. After the streaming service renewed his movie deal, Netflix bought Noah Baumbach’s upcoming The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), which is set to premiere at this month’s Cannes International Film Festival. Today, we got our first official look at the film, with four new images.
While C.S. Lewis’ groundbreaking Chronicles of Narnia has seven books, Walden Media has only managed to make three of them into movies. Back in 2011 it didn’t look very hopeful for the series, as it seemed that their contract with Lewis’ estate had expired and not been renewed. But now everything seems to be in order, and The Silver Chair is on the horizon, chronologically the sixth book in the series and the first since The Magician’s Nephew not to feature the Pevensie children. Today, Captain America director Joe Johnston has announced that he’s taking the helm of the project.
It’s always fortuitous when a director and stars who made a great movie decide they’d love to all work together to make another one. Such is the case with Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and David Mackenzie, whose fantastic western homage Hell or High Water was a Best Picture nominee last year. The three have decided to reteam, this time with Netflix, for Outlaw King, which, by the title, sounds like it could be very similar to Hell or High Water. It’s anything but.
