    Disney Prepping 'Winnie The Pooh' For 2D, Hand-Animated Film For 2011

    Jim Cummings To Voice Winnie The Pooh, John Cleese To NarrateDisney, once the prestigious leaders of animated family fare, have struggled considerably in recent years to remain creative and relevant in a climate dominated by the likes of Pixar and DreamWorks Animation. Their most recent in-house efforts, "Meet the Robinsons," "Bolt" and "The Princess and the Frog" have been middling efforts and their upcoming "Tangled" has virtually no heat behind it (maybe we're just the wrong demographic but the buzz on that one seems non-existent at this point). So it's no surprise then that Disney is trotting out a successful, cherished brand to try and r...

    Box-Office: R-Rated 'Due Date' Can't Outwit The Animated 'Megamind'

    It had all the ingredients of a big winner. "Due Date" was widely known as Todd Phillips' R-rated follow-up to the massively successful R-rated "The Hangover," and he had that film's biggest breakout comedian Zach Galifianakis onboard, plus one of the world's biggest stars Robert Downey Jr. But perhaps seasonal timing is everything. "The Hangover" was a surprised hit in the early summer of 2009, and perhaps R-rated comedy that's occasionally nasty doesn't work quite as well in the fall. It's also possibly one of those instances when audiences actually listened to critics for once. "Due Date" was met with mixed reviews and currently holds a r...
