Pixar Releases Inside Out Character Posters

1807

The publicity machine for Pete Docter’s 2015 feature Inside Out is in full effect and new character posters have been released.

Here is the film’s synopsis:

From the tepuis of South America to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award-winning director Pete Docter has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In 2015, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all – inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Disney’s Cinderella Trailer

cinderella0013

Today Disney released the trailer for the live action Cinderella film.

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella’s life forever.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgård,Holliday Grainger, Derek Jacobi and Helena Bonham Carter, Cinderella will be released on March 13, 2015.

20th Anniversary Screening of The Shawshank Redemption

the-shawshank-redemption_806x1075_v2

Screenwriter Frank Darabont made his feature directing debut with an Oscar-nominated adaptation of Stephen King’s novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, and over the last twenty years, this gripping story of hope and courage has become one of the most beloved films of its time.

Tim Robbins stars as Andy Dufresne, a young banker falsely convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover, who faces unthinkable brutality as an inmate of Shawshank State Prison. Andy’s accounting skills and his friendship with a more experienced prisoner, Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding played by Morgan Freeman help keep him alive in the hostile setting. However, an unforgivable betrayal leads him to plot an impossible escape.

For his directing debut, Darabont assembled a top-notch supporting cast with a memorable performance by the great James Whitmore as a longtime convict. Darabont was also aided by Roger Deakins’ stark cinematography, Richard Francis-Bruce’s tense editing and Thomas Newman’s emotional score, which all earned Oscar nominations.

Stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and writer-director Frank Darabont will appear in person at the screening at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills on November 18, 2014 to help celebrate this contemporary classic’s 20th anniversary. More information HERE.

Odd City To Release The Godfather Print By Laurent Durieux On November 17, 2014

Odd City, in partnership with the Paramount Pictures Licensing, is proud to announce a limited edition screen print for Francis Ford Coppola’s classic, The Godfather, by Laurent Durieux. This 1972 film, adapted for the screen by Coppola, is widely considered the most influential film in the gangster genre. Artist Laurent Durieux, in his distinctive style, has captured a turning point moment from the film.

The Laurent Durieux Godfather prints will be in a regular edition, variant edition and wood edition. The wood edition will have the regular edition color way.

These prints represent the first set of three, one for each of the three films.

Here is what the artist had to say about this special project:

“The Godfather films are amongst my favorite movies of all time, period. I grew up with these movies. So many movies are referring to GF nowadays, and fantastic TV shows like The Sopranos (which I love) hint constantly to the masterpieces from Francis Ford Coppola. The Godfather inhabits us all. It’s part of our general culture. It should be taught at school! It is such a milestone in cinema history too! It’s really impossible to say anything negative about The Godfather. It doesn’t get any better than this!” 

All editions are printed by SP Productions in Brussels and will be personally signed and numbered by Laurent Durieux. These prints are expected to begin shipping the first week of December

The Laurent Durieux Godfather prints will go on sale Monday, November 17, 2014 on the Odd City Store around 11am CST, and will begin shipping the first week of December 2014.

MONDO To Release Back To The Future Print By Matt Taylor At Thought Bubble

This year at Thought Bubble in the UK, MONDO is teaming up with Matt Taylor (who will also be in attendance) to release a vibrant take on Back to the Future featuring Marty McFly on lead guitar.

Here’s what Matt had to say about the poster:

“BTTF is basically my dream project and as such is utterly terrifying, because it is embedded in the public consciousness and has it’s own library of iconography that even people who haven’t seen the film will know. On top of that, the previous BTTF series at Mondo are amongst the highlights of their output – so a little bit of extra pressure to live up to there.

For my design, I went back to Struzan’s original concept posters – there is a great one with Marty vanishing from the feet up, and as soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to use it as my starting point. I think PCC and Laurent have closed the book on using the Delorean so I deliberately stayed away from that and focused instead on Marty and his instantly recognisable features. I used the title block from the original poster and stripped out the rest of the type so that the image stood alone on the page. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I hope that the Mondo faithful dig it as well.”

Be sure to stay tuned to Twitter to find out when Back to the Future will become available at the convention.
