  7. The Geekiest Moments of the Golden Globes

    Not all that glitters is gold

    The Golden Globes, that other movie awards ceremony, happened last night, and between hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, and other lovely ladies and gents in attendance, there were quite a few clips you're probably interested in seeing again. And if you didn't see them the first time, then you should come on in and watch Tony Stark give Lois Lane a Golden Globe, find out who got an award straight from the Khaleesi, and who showed up for a tiny Pirates of the Caribbean reunion.

  8. Meryl Streep Takes Walt Disney To Task In Emma Thompson Speech

    "Some of his associates reported that Walt Disney didn’t really like women,” she began. “There is a piece of received wisdom that says that the most creative people are often odd or irritating, eccentric, damaged, difficult; that along with enormous creativity comes certain deficits in humanity or decency. We are familiar with this trope in our business: Mozart, Van GoghTarantino, Eminem. Ezra Pound said, ‘I have not anyone worth a damn who was not irascible.’ Well I have: Emma Thompson. Not only is she not irascible, she’s practically a saint...Streep then couldn’t resist returning to Disney the man: “Disney, who brought joy arguably to billions of people was, perhaps, or had some racist proclivities. He formed and supported an anti-Semitic industry lobbying group and he was certainly, on the evidence of his company’s policies, a gender bigot,” she said, before reading an actual 1938 letter from Disney rejecting a female applicant to the animation trainee program. “When I saw the film, I could just imagine Walt Disney’s chagrin at having to cultivate P.L. Travers’ favor for the 20 years that it took to secure the rights to her work. It must have killed him to encounter in a woman an equally disdainful and superior creature, a person dismissive of his own considerable gifts and prodigious output and imagination.” - Entertainment Weekly reporting on Meryl Streep's speech on Emma Thompson at the National Board of Review dinner. Variety cited a line from that letter...

  9. Tom Hanks Gives Us His Best Walt Disney In The Saving Mr. Banks Trailer

    It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

    Just the other day we saw our first official image of Tom Hanks and the always wonderful Emma Thompson from Saving Mr. Banks. The film will tell the story of P.L. Travers (Thompson), creator of Mary Poppins, and Walt Disney's long road to capturing her works. I have to admit, the trailer tugged at my heartstrings a bit. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  14. ‘Mary Poppins’ Production Biopic is a Go, Emma Thompson is P.L. Travers

    Officially Official

    Ms. Poppins and her umbrella are getting some serious mileage, of late. Hot on the chimney-top stomping heels of a hit Broadway translation, the Walt Disney Co is putting semi-biopic Saving Mr. Banks onto the slate for next year. Yesterday marked the start of production on the 60s period piece, which will chronicle Walt Disney's 20-year odyssey to obtain the screen rights to P.L. Travers' books and character, focusing on the tension between the author and the company's founder during the making of the classic film. In the author's corner is the immeasurable Emma Thompson, and in Disney's, none other than Tom Hanks. Paul Giamatti, Colin Farrell, and Jason Schwartzman round out the cast, though IMDB has no listing yet for who's on deck to play Julie Andrews.

  15. New Brave Images Show Merida’s Swordplay Skills

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    We've been witnessing Princess Merida's skill with a bow for a while (and even seen a real-life redhead doing the same) but now we know she's a very well-rounded lady. Disney-Pixar released two new stills from Brave that show she's also quite good at swordfighting. Hit the jump for the other new shot.

  16. J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2 Picks up Alice Eve for Brand New Character

    To Boldly Go

    J.J. Abrams' Star Trek was a great time for all concerned, a shiny sci-fi action flick that mucked around with time travel and parallel universes to give an oddly... canonical complete reboot of decades of continuity. But as much as we love it, we've still gotta say that thing. You know, that thing that we say all the time: it suuure only had one lady in it. So it's good to know that J.J. Abrams has been looking into that, even venturing into the territory of making new lady characters from scratch, by hiring actress Alice Eve for an as-yet-unannounced role in Star Trek 2.

  18. Pixar’s Brave And Their Bear-Hunting Anti-Princess

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    Princesses in animated features are usually occupied with royal duties and finding Prince Charming. Not that there's anything wrong with that but it's a breath of fresh air to hear Pixar will soon be giving us a princess who's more interested in her bow and arrow skills in the wilderness than her hair. Brave co-director Mark Andrews has opened up about the new tale, the first Pixar film with a female heroine as its star, which is sure to become an instant classic with little ones (and adults) everywhere.

  19. Pixar Dishes on Brave at D23, or, Merida is a Badass

    Bear Time

    This weekend, as you may have noticed us mentioning, was Disney's D23 Expo, which is why you've been seeing so much Disney, Pixar, and Marvel movie news floating around: they all showed up to strut their stuff for the Disney fan community. Now, while we're interested in a lot of that, even the news that Pixar is going to be making a dinosaur movie couldn't get us more excited than Brave does, and so here's a generous helping of the D23 news about Brave, Pixar's first movie with a female protagonist and a woman writer behind the story. Some of it is a little spoilery, but only about what seems to be the first arc of the story, not the ending or plot developments.

  20. 20 Reasons to Be Excited About Brave (As If You Weren’t Already)

    Bear Time

    Two weeks ago, the first official teaser for Pixar’s Brave premiered with the release of Cars 2, giving Cars 2 a reason to exist. At the time I was too busy performing in a show, reviewing shows, holding down a job and keeping my cat happy to be properly excited. This week, though, I have had enough of a break to appreciate how excited I am. And I am excited. Stupidly excited. Obnoxiously excited. I am more excited for this movie than I am for all the Christmasses to come. I am more excited for this movie than I am for my brother’s upcoming wedding (sorry, Josh). I am more excited for this movie than I am for Captain America, the drunken laugh-fest that will be Breaking Dawn, and any and all movies featuring Alan Rickman. I am in fact so excited that it is actually making me angry. Why do I have to wait another year for this movie? I want it now. I will Veruca Salt all over this place until I get my very own Brave! (kicks things)
