  1. Tomorrowland‘s Japanese Trailer, for the Disney Conspiracy Theorist in All of Us

    Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is totally in on this too.

    Last Monday's Tomorrowland trailer might have brought us George Clooney in a bathtub rocket, but Japan's version actually gives us a little more details on what to expect from the movie, plot-wise. (Batshit absurdity, apparently. If this trailer exhausts you, imagine what it must feel like to be an Illuminati truther all the time.)

  2. Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland Trailer Is Finally Out, and You Should Watch It

    Taking things to a whole other dimension.

    You have been waiting for months—no, years—for this. At last, the second (and probably final) teaser trailer for Brad Bird's sci-fi Tomorrowland is on the internet for the world to see. And it looks amazing!

  3. First Photos and Plot Deets For Tomorrowland, From Damon Lindelof (So, You Know)

    I mean. You know.

    For reasons currently passing understanding, Hollywood has chosen to make a movie out of Tomorrowland. You know, that one part of the Magic Kingdom at Disney? Anyways, since that's the most ambiguously ridiculous thing to make a movie of ever, and the film is already in post, be glad we finally have some photos and plot details from the production team.

  4. Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland Casts Its First Actress

    The Future Is Now!

    Tomorrowland is a movie shrouded in secrecy, being put together by Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof, two names that many folks would follow to any movie theater even if they weren't working together. We're interested in it not the least because if rumors are to be believed, while George Clooney and Hugh Laurie are playing major characters, neither are playing the lead. In fact, the lead, and both of the two remaining main characters will be played by young women. Those rumors stand supported with the announcement of Raffey Cassidy in the role of a butt kicking robot girl.

  5. Bird and Lindelof’s Tomorrowland Seems to Have Some Cool Lady Characters in It

    The Future Is Now!

    It doesn't take much to make our ears perk up and pay attention to a movie, and the possibility of some cool ladies in a movie is definitely one of those things. Cool being an, admittedly, simultaneously very broad and very specific definition. Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof have been teasing their upcoming Disney project for months now, first under the working title 1952, before the film's actual title was revealed to be Tomorrowland, after the themed attraction at many Disney parks. They even went so far as to reveal a mysterious image of a suitcase full of random stuff, so that the internet could go crazy identifying it all and wondering what it might mean. Clearly somebody out there knew what the movie was about, since Hugh Laurie and George Clooney are both attached to the movie. And now, thanks to casting info, we might have a clue to what it's all about.

    Things We Saw Today

    Tony Stark expresses my feelings on this astronaut duvet cover by Dutch company Snurk ("For Horizontal Living") rather nicely. (Boing Boing)

  7. Guillermo del Toro Turned Down Directing Star Wars: Episode VII, Because He’s Busy Enough Already

    Today in Depressing

    First we found out that J.J. Abrams said no to directing Star Wars: Episode VII. Now it turns out Guillermo del Toro has done the same.

  8. Awww, Man. Brad Bird Says He’s Not Directing Star Wars.

    Today in Depressing

    Another rumor bites the dust: It looks like Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles) won't be directing Star Wars: Episode VII after all. Granted, it was less a rumor than an instance of "Oh wow, how cool would that be?" (Though a few weeks back there was a theory floating around that his upcoming sci-film film 1952 was actually Star Wars in disguise.) Anyway, it's all a moot point now as the director has taken to Twitter to dash the hopes of everyone who wanted Bird to take to the Stars. Hey, I've been remarkably light on the puns so far today. Gotta catch up.

  9. Brad Bird’s Unnamed Sci-Fi Film Gets a Name Switch, Flirts With George Clooney

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Look, this will all make sense in a moment. Brad Bird, see, the guy behind The Incredibles, The Iron Giant, Ratatouille, and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, is working on this unnamed science fiction film, according to Hollywood buzz. Written by, yes, Damon Lindelof, it's currently running with the code name 1952, understood to be a codename that may or may not have anything to do with the actual content of them movie. The movie was also briefly known as Tesla, which, again, may or may not actually be related to the subject of the movie. Who is currently related to the movie? George Clooney.

  10. Looks Like The Next Star Wars Film Has A Writer

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Lots of rumors have been thrown around as to who might be involved with a Disney produced Star Wars VII but it looks like one might finally be legit. Academy Award-winning writer of Little Miss Sunshine, and screenwriter of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Toy Story 3, Michael Arndt, is already working on a script.

  11. We Know You’re Sick of Campaign Ads, But You Can Watch One More: Brad Bird for Star Wars [VIDEO]

    May The Force Be With You

    The Presidential election may be over, but the campaigning over who should direct Star Wars: Episode VII has just begun. This video makes a rather convincing case for Brad Bird, and I've gotta say I agree with them. Bringing up the Holiday Special is pretty low, though.

  12. Things We Saw Today: Jon Hamm & Daniel Radcliffe In A Bathtub?

    Things We Saw Today

    Well we've seen Daniel Radcliffe in a bathtub in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire but this is something different all together. It's a shot from Radcliffe's new film with Mad Men star Jon Hamm, A Young Doctor's Notebook. In it, Radcliffe plays the younger version of Hamm's character. And this is extremely bizarre. (via Collider)

  13. Typographer Upset About Fonts in Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, Writes Letter to Brad Bird

    Matthew Butterick is very devoted to his job as a typographer, where he concerns himself with the design of fonts and finding just the right look for words. Apparently, Mr. Butterick is so very devoted to his job as he was unable to fully immerse himself in The Incredibles director Brad Bird's latest film Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol due to a critical choice of fonts. It seems that during the film, the font Verdana made a few appearances which Butterick saw as a huge mistake. Obviously, he had to bring this to the director's attention.

  14. Incredibles Director Brainstorming Sequel Ideas

    Cautiously Optimistic

    The Incredibles was one Pixar movie that really appealed to my particular asthetics. As a big superhero fan, watching a fun-loving family use their superpowers to hilarious results was just plain swell. It didn't do too shabby at the box office either, it's the fourth most successful Pixar film, so where is our sequel? Director Brad Bird explains.

  15. Want to See Six Minutes of The Dark Knight Rises?

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    Well, you're gonna have to pay for Mission: Imposible - Ghost Protocol. In IMAX. Echoing an intiative begun with The Dark Knight, Warner Bros. (we've been doing an awful lot of Warner Bros. stories today) is attaching the first six minutes of The Dark Knight Rises to one of its upcoming IMAX theater releases.

  16. Wait, Simon Pegg is in Mission: Impossible?

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    Well, okay, not Mission: Impossible, but the upcoming Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, a movie whose title can only have come from this conversation:

    Producer A: Can we give it as silly a spy movie name as Quantum of Solace? Producer B: No, it's grammatically impossible. Producer A: Well, then can we throw multiple kinds on un-voiced punctuation in it, so everyone who writes about it will have to double check the location of them? Producer B: CAN WE EVER!
    But watching Simon Pegg make a name for himself as "the guy who does technical stuff" in blockbuster action movies isn't the only reason we're kind of interested in seeing M:I - GP.

  17. Brad Bird Quits Animation… Sort Of

    This weekend Brad Bird was given one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon an american animator: the Windsor McCay Award for lifetime achievement in the field of animation.  He now stands alongside such animation greats as the Fleischer Brothers, Tex Avery, Hanna and Barbera, Mel Blanc, Walt Disney, Bob Clampett, Don Bluth, Genndy Tartakovsky, John Lasseter, and Bruce Timm. Too bad he's quitting animation.  Ok, not really.  He explains, in his acceptance video, which had to be filmed in advance due to Bird being too busy filming the next Mission Impossible movie with Simon Pegg and Tom Cruise to attend the ceremony. (via Bleeding Cool.)
