    Weekend Box Office: 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' Provides Box Office's Last Gasp Before 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    And lo, there was an 'Ice Age' franchise. “Ice Age: Continental Drift” looks like it will continue the winning tradition of animation studio Blue Sky’s crown jewel, opening at a decent $46 million. Despite the fact that the lead characters of this franchise should be extinct by now, this past-due se...

    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...

    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).

    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...
