The first film ever to use the word ‘vagina’ in its screenplay, apparently.
Saw this and was gobsmacked! thought some of the female Broadsheeters might appreciate it…
The directorial debut of Disney animator John Kahrs (Ratatouille, Tangled, The Incredibles, Toy Story 2, etc.) – a gorgeous hand-drawn short (which will play in cinemas next month as a support feature for Wreck-It Ralph) – now released by Disney in its entirely for your viewing pleasure.
Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute.
You can read more about how traditional hand drawn animation and computer generated images were combined to make the short.
She nails it.
Co-starring in the film are Sharlto Copley (“District 9”), Elle Fanning (“Super 8”), Sam Riley (“On the Road”), Imelda Staunton (“Vera Drake”), Miranda Richardson (“The Hours”), Juno Temple (“Atonement”) and Lesley Manville (“Secrets & Lies”).
This is the untold story of Disney’s most beloved villain, Maleficent, from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” The film reveals the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora.
Disney really wants you to see its new John Carter movie.
Having irked fans of Edgar Rice Burroughs by cutting the title down from ‘John Carter Of Mars’ to a generic eponym and then releasing a rather lacklustre first trailer, the marketing machine has now changed tack, using a full ten minutes from the start of the film as a promo, just in case you thought it was going to be, you know, too Disney.
Good move. By the look of things, it’s quite the blockbuster.
