Set in the fictional city of San Fransokyo, “Baymax Returns” explores the moment after Hiro believes that his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax is lost in the portal forever and discovers the chip his brother Tadashi designed to create Baymax.
Big Hero 6: The Series will then premiere in early 2018.
FOX’s live musical production A Christmas Story has already cast Maya Rudolph as Ralphie Parker’s mom, but finding the perfect Ralphie will be a bit harder – so FOX has announced an nationwide digital casting call for the production’s central character.
Candidates should be between 9-12-years old, express strong singing and dancing capabilities and be able to anchor the live three-hour production.
Inspired by the classic movie A Christmas Story and the Tony Award-nominated Broadway hit A Christmas Story: The Musical, FOX has announced that its next live musical event will be A Christmas Story – produced by Marc Platt featuring Emmy Award-nominee May Rudolph as the mother of 9-year old Ralphie Parker.
Surly Squirrel returns this summer in a sequel that’s really unnecessary. The (unjustly) much maligned – first film had a manic Tex Avery-like energy and the audience I saw it with was thoroughly engaged throughout.
Even with key players – Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl and Maya Rudolph – back for the sequel, it seems just as odd as the original, so I’m hoping it will also be unexpected fun.
The first trailer isn’t terrible. Check it our after the break. The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature opens on August 18th.
The world could have used a great CG reimagining of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream. What a shame this isn’t it.
Still there are some good moments to be had from Strange Magic – Alan Cumming rocking out as the Bog King and Evan Rachel Ward flittering through several musical styles as Princess Marianne of the Fairy Kingdom come to mind.
Inherent Vice is a twisty mystery that fuses old school PI movies with the psychedelia of the late sixties and early seventies. The point of fusion is the lead character, Larry ‘Doc’ Sportello, a private eye who always – at a minimum – half baked (and usually full on stoned) but somehow manages to be more on the ball than anyone else.
