The First Full Trailer For 'Big Hero 6' Is Here - Meet The Super
We bet when Marvel and Disney joined forces, the comic book company didn't think Disney would one day make a film out of a failed series from 1998.

The first trailer for Big Hero 6 is here, based on a short-lived superhero team created by Marvel to hope on the Japanese manga craze of the late 1990s. Suffice to say it didn't last long, but its intriguing cast of characters was enough to convince Disney Animation Studios to create a feature around them.

Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter), is a robotics genius who stumbles upon a criminal plot. With Baymax, the robot he created, he creates a team o...

Get Absorbed by Apes in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’
You’d never expect to be emotionally engrossed by a film about computer-generated apes, which is why Dawn of the Planet of the Apes genuinely surprises you. Because it gets you invested in these characters early on and keeps them sympathetic throughout the picture, you unwittingly become wrapped up in their story. As a result, there are times when you’re shocked to realize that you’re rooting more for the apes than for the movie’s humans.

Set 10 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this film picks up in a world where disease wiped out most the Earth’s population. This same virus tu...

'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' Review: Brilliant, Breathtaking And The Best Of The Franchise

July 13th, 2014 4:16am EDT
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Rarely is a sequel better than the original. Of course, there are exceptions, such as 'Godfather 2' and now 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.'

This film is absolutely fantastic on every level, starting with Andy Serkis as Caesar, the soulful, emotional, kind and fair ape that we met in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' which starred, James Franco.

Right off the bat, I have to say that Serkis is amazing. He gives such a beautiful, nuanced performance that we, as an audience, are able to feel everything that Caesar feels and thinks. The film, shot in 3D, is brilliantly directed by Matt Reeve...

According to Variety, the Coen brothers are working to cast the pregnant Johansson for the film, which is ironically about a 1950s actress who becomes pregnant just as her new film begins production. The movie will follow a "fixer" for the film studio who works to keep all of their stars out of trouble, and it sounds like this pregnant actress is the latest issue for him.
