Big eyes, full hearts, can't lose.
What would 101 Dalmations look like if Tim Burton directed it? Or Sleeping Beauty?
The Zeonic Toyota is a Gundam-inspired car with an amazing animated commercial.
He's got no strings.
I wish upon your star! Robert Downey Jr.'s long awaited Pinocchio project has gained yet another writer (and one with a pretty impressive pedigree, too).
Who wished upon a star for this? WHO?
Well, Disney can never be accused of fixin' something that ain't broke. Or something. Anyway, they are now developing a live-action Pinocchio so they can continue the successful wave of live-action adaptations that includes Maleficent and the current Cinderella.
*growly voice* GIVE. A. LITTLE. WHISTLE.
But who is his Jiminy Cricket, you ask? Well, probably Jiminy Cricket is somewhere else. Maybe with Sora and Donald and Goofy.
Maybe in the Marvel Universe level of the Kingdom Hearts game of my dreams.
I guess "Cyranno de Bergerex" was taken?
A study published today in Nature Communications reveals the discovery of Qianzhousaurus sinensis, a long-snouted "cousin" of T-rex who stalked the Earth 66 million years ago and likely lived in constant embarrassment over his nose-to-arm ratio.

There was going to be a Jim Henson Company produced, Guillermo del Toro directed, and Mark Gustafson animated version of Pinocchio based on Gris Grimly's illustrations, but Frankenweenie ruined it. Tom Waits was even going to be Gepetto. This is why we can't have nice things.
where does he get those wonderful toys
, the screenwriter behind Kick-Ass
, X-Men: First Class
, and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past
, now has on her plate another geek-oriented project: Tim Burton
's live-action retelling of Pinocchio
, starring not Johnny Depp
but Robert Downey Jr.
After two Iron Man
movies, Tim Burton
was obviously convinced of the puppeteering potential of one Robert Downey Jr.
, because now, the director is looking to ask the actor to play Geppetto in the live-action Pinocchio
movie wants to make for Warner Bros.
I don't know about you guys, but I'll watch Robert Downey, Jr. do pretty much anything. When it comes to interesting, talented, and flexible actors, he's right up there with Johnny Depp
, in my opinion ... Wait a minute, Johnny Depp wasn't asked by Tim Burton to play Geppetto? Was he busy?
is 1. a very busy person and 2. really into stories about people building and/or interacting with humanoid beings made from spare parts. Last weekend, he saw box office success
with Real Steel
, about a man who takes part in robot boxing matches. Also on his plate: a new version of Frankenstein
. And now he's set to direct a prequel to Pinocchio
called The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto
, about how the boy puppet's maker came to create a wooden child companion. At this point, we wouldn't be surprised if Shawn Levy is just trying to distract everyone from the army of Cybermen he's building in his basement.
