This was my first time exhibiting at this particular MCM, held in the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK. Indeed, it was my first time exhibiting in Birmingham, period. So this was very much an experiment for me to see how it does and how the con is. I had some inkling. Every previous MCM […]
As we learned over the weekend, the new season of Once Upon A Time will be gaining a certain red-headed bow-slinger from the animated film Brave. ABC has released this first look at Amy Manson playing Merida. Once Upon A Time returns September 27th to ABC. [youtube]https://youtu.be/eEGbbv0a9bU[/youtube]
I'm a proud fan of the first Disney Infinity but this year's 2.0 version promises to be better in every respect.
Does anyone have a tally of which characters they still haven't done yet? It seems like they're running out of Princesses.
The DVD and Blu-Ray extra that looks really quite interesting.
Plus: check out these jaw-dropping trailers for awful animated rip-offs.
Today sees the release of Pixar’s bright and charming Brave, a wonderful fable about some small, intimate character moments against a typically gorgeous visual backdrop. We’ve already talked about the film a fair amount, and we’ll be talking about it plenty more as the day and week go on, but I thought it might be […]
"Mon-sters Uni-versity" - c'mon everybody, sing along.
There’s more valuable storytelling material in this trailer for Brave than any of the previous ones. For the first two thirds or so it deftly sketches out ideas that pitch the film pretty fairly and accurately. And then maybe it gives away a little too much. Just a touch. Still, it’s a handsome trailer. Watch […]
What makes Brave one of the most compelling Pixar films so far?
This is not a clip from Brave, but a side story, featuring Merida’s family and some of the supporting cast. I wonder if there’s any more of these “extra scenes” to come? This was certainly a lot nicer than the spoof commercials that the studio has been releasing lately. We’re less than ten hours away […]
Pixar do time travel.
Pixar’s Brave is just a few weeks away now and if you come back on Monday, you’ll be able to read our review. We’ve also got some interviews to come, discussions with many of the folk who made the film, and I promise you that there’s plenty to look forward to there. But let’s get […]
Look closely and you’ll divine some bits and pieces of where Pixar’s Brave will be heading in its later sequences. Pay less attention and you’ll still see some ideas that were kept out of the main, theatrical trailers – there’s even a bit of Julie Walters’ largely secret but thoroughly instrumental old witch character here, […]
Bleeding Cool Magazine Article By Brendon Connelly It all started in 1975. Before then, people would rather get some sun in the summertime, maybe even go swimming.But then Jaws gave us all two good reasons to stay off the beaches. Spielberg’s record breaker managed to hold onto the number one slot for 14 straight weeks […]
This clip is short and to the point, and shows off the silent comedy stylings of Pixar’s Brave, one of its hitherto undersold aspects of appeal. There’s a lot more to Brave than the trailers have let on. I’ve yet to see how it all resolves, but pending a good pay-off, I think this is […]
I wrote a few words about Pixar’s Brave for Bleeding Cool magazine at the end of last week. Not many words, mind, but a little something about the thirty-minute preview of the film I saw last month. Basically, I was saying that it looks really great. And a bit like a Ghibli film. This new […]
Here’s more from Pixar’s Brave. In this promo you’ll meet Merida’s three little brothers – Hamish, Harris and Hubert. That last name, you may have noticed, is distinctly not Scottish. This ruffled a few feathers at a preview for the film I attended recently. A few proud Scottish feathers, but I did screw my half-Irish […]
I was lucky enough to see a good chunk of Pixar’s Brave a few weeks ago, running from the start of the film, through the previously released clip and on to somewhere around the thirty minute mark. Not to put too fine a point on it, I loved what I saw. The main taste is […]
There are lots of Pixar traditions, from the regular casting of John Ratzenberger to the repeated appearance of A113, the number of the classroom where John Lasseter studied at CalArts. One such recurring Easter Egg is the Pizza Planet truck, as first featured in Toy Story. There’s been some speculation as to whether or not […]
