Watch: 'Lava' Shows Us What a Pixar Musical Might Look Like
Pixar’s newest feature Inside Out isn’t due in theaters until next year – but we already have a sneak peek at the short that will precede it upon its arrival at your local multiplex.
Lava is the latest mini-offering from the beloved animation studio, and it showcases what a Pixar musical might look like. The lead character appears to be a giant volcano named Uku, and in this clip he sings us a sweet song about how he’s just looking for “someone to lava.”
Director James Ford Murphy tells Yahoo! Movies he drew on a diverse range of inspirations for Uku, including the volcano’s voice actor, Kuana Torres Kahele, Jackie Gleeson from The Honeymooners era, and the bulldog from the Chuck Jones cartoon Feed the Kitty. The vocal... Read More
How 'The Maze Runner' Will Change the Way We Watch Movies
How would you like to see The Maze Runner in a way no other movies are being seen right now? The upcoming YA adaptation will be the first Hollywood title released on Escape screens when the new format is unveiled in U.S. theaters on September 19, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
What is Escape? It's a panoramic projection using three screens, with the extra two extending at an angle on either side from the central screen that we're currently used to. It's similar to the 1950s Cinerama format but fixed for and with the digital age.
Check out a promo video below, via Slashfilm.
With The Maze Runner, though, you won't be getting the fully intended effect of Escape. Because the sci-fi flick wasn't shot with the format in mind, Fox is working... Read More
Praise The Horror Movie Gods For This Incredible 'Cub' Trailer
2014 has been a particularly slim year for great horror movies, at least as far as Hollywood is concerned. As always, fans have to turn to the festival circuit to find the indie and international gems that prove there's still plenty of fresh blood in the genre, and so far this year that's included movies like Exists, Starry Eyes, Housebound, Oculus, and The Babadook.
Having seen the above, I can attest all are quite worthwhile. However, they look like mere appetizers for Cub, a Belgian film that will soon have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Directed by Jonas Govaerts, Cub is about a Cub Scout troop on a camping trip who come across what seems like a feral child in the woods. That sounds like a rather generic setup, but if this trailer is... Read More

There are some simple truths in life – water is wet, the sky is blue and Hollywood loves sequels. Find out what’s happening with the latest installments of some of your favorite franchises in today’s sequel roundup.
We kick things off with some massive, spoilerific rumors about The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The latest buzz ties into comments Marvel boss Kevin Feige made a while back about the team structure of the Avengers. Feige claimed one of the things he loved about the Avengers as a group was that you could change the team lineup at any time. Now, it looks like those words might have been completely prophetic. If you don’t want to know any potential SPOILERS for the film, turn back now.
Badass Digest claims that the script for the new film... Read More

What Is the Best Horror-Movie Title of All Time?
What makes a good title for a horror movie? Hollywood doesn't seem to know these days, as evidenced by names like Oculus and too many nouns ending in "ing" (The Awakening; The Conjuring) or adjectives that are rather tame sounding, like Sinister and Insidious. This week's new release As Above, So Below is either a good title or a bad one, depending on whom you ask, but I'd say its only real problem is that it doesn't immediately sound like a horror movie.
That doesn't mean it's not worth seeing, just maybe that it won't as easily draw audiences as, say, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That's a title that tells you what you're in for. Other titles that you know are going to be scary movies include Pet Sematary, A Nightmare on Elm... Read More
