    Weekend Box Office: 'Brave' Is Pixar's Thirteenth Straight Number One Debut

    Thirteen films. Thirteen straight hits. All number one movies. It wasn't a surprise to see "Brave" climb that mountain, the fifth-highest opening in Pixar history, even if the numbers are coming in very close to last year's relatively underwhelming "Cars 2." That film was...

    Trailer Watch: Mike and Sulley Party it Up in New Teaser for Pixar's 'Monsters University'

    Before the monsters were "Monsters, Inc.," they were just a bunch of dorm-partying, disco ball-lovin', lampshade-wearing college co-eds. University seems to have been a relatively wholesome time for the monsters -- slow-dancing and no explicit booze -- unless that Gleww squeezing is a sexual innuend...

    New Set Of Character Posters From 'Frankenweenie' Premiere; Pixar Debuts New 'Cars Toon' Short

    Disney has unveiled a series of character for this Halloween's "Frankenweenie," a black-and-white stop motion feature from Tim Burton and Disney that was based on a short film of his that got him fired from the studio back in the mid-eighties (seriously). The posters and characters look appropriatel...

    Watch: Four Very Slightly Different Teaser Trailers For Pixar's 'Monsters University'

    We'd hoped that last year's "Cars 2" was something of a blip on the Pixar track record. A disappointing film, to be sure, made to keep the merchandising behemoth alive (and it doesn't hurt that John Lasseter is an auto-nut), but we figured the studio's near-impeccable ...

    Immersed in Movies: Turbulent Behind-the-Scenes Yields Pixar's 'Brave' New Scottish World

    "Brave" is far from the disappointment expressed in some early reviews. It's not only the much ballyhooed breakthrough as Pixar's first female-centric movie but also the most lush-looking work yet from the animation powerhouse. It's a powerful mother-daughter crucible set in medieval Scotland but wi...

    'Brave' Early Reviews: Merida May Not Be New Model Princess After All

    The "Brave" trailers promo Pixar's foray into princess movies; the Disney animated feature is expected to be one of the summer's top performers. But early reviews suggest the tale isn't as fresh and groundbreaking as we'd hoped. Princess Merida is Pixar's first female lead, but may not prove to be a...

    Review: Pixar's 'Brave' Is A Powerful But Wobbly Feminist Fairy Tale

    There are a lot of firsts associated with "Brave," Disney/Pixar's new feature, set in the misty Scottish highlands. It's the studio's first period piece ("The Incredibles'" captivating retro-futurism doesn't count, it seems), their first fairy tale, and their first film led by a female character (in...
