“Planet of the Apes” Sequel Lands Gabriel Chavarria

Garbiel Chavarria will join a cast of CGI apes in a war of some kind…on a planet.

It goes without saying that when we watch either Rise or Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we’re mostly just there for the apes. I mean come on, they’re warring, plotting, (sometimes) talking simians! You can’t out a price on that kind of entertainment. Continue reading “Planet of the Apes” Sequel Lands Gabriel Chavarria

Pixar’s New Year Gift Basket: Fresh Artwork and Images for “Inside Out” and “The Good Dinosaur”

The Pixar publicity train just keeps on chugging even into the New Year period when things tend to slow down everywhere else…especially with real trains.  In anticipation of two hot projects the studio has released respectively a  new image from Inside Out and some more concept art for The Good Dinosaur.

As we know, Inside Out is set for a June 19th, 2015 release and explores the adventures of emotions Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Anger (Lewis Black) as they live in the the consciousness of an 11-year-old girl. We already have character posters, a teaser and a full-length trailer that plays out a good dose of footage from the film itself. Now to add to the mix is a still from the feature, showing the emotions watching what looks to be a memory. The image is inkeeping with the bubbly sleekness of the trailer and isn’t so much a big reveal as it is a warm reminder of things to come. Check out the image below, courtesy of Slashfilm:

And behind door number two we have some concept art for The Good DinosaurIt’s no secret that the project has had a few bumps in the road with the changing of hands from Up director Bob Peterson to The Incredibles animator Peter Sohn. We won’t be seeing this project in theatres until next November 25th, 2015, so all we’ve had so far is similar artwork. But from what we’ve seen, the visuals and in particular the landscapes are going to be stunning. The cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Judy Greer, John Lithgow, Frances McDormand and Bill Hader.

Hopefully some finished shots or maybe even a trailer will be making their way to us very soon, but in the meantime we have Inside Out to look forward to.

Which Pixar project are most psyched for?
