Pixar continues to roll out the sequels to some of their biggest hits, despite what some fans and critics want. Today they moved just a step closer into production as they got Albert Brooks to voice Marlin, the high-strung clown fish, once again in Finding Nemo 2.

Finding Nemo—Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature, and Pixar’s second highest grossing film (Number one?  Toy Story 3)—is one of Pixar’s crowning achievements.  It’s even getting a 3D makeover and rerelease in September.  And now, after nine years, it looks like it’s finally getting the sequel treatment, as well.

Box Office Predictions: John Carter Is Doomed

For some people there is glee when a movie fails, but I'm reminded of something Justin Bartha said to me about Gigli. People work just as hard on movies that bomb as movies that succeed, and almost everyone is just doing their jobs. And no one ever sets out to make a bad movie. The makers of John Carter went in with good faith, and thought...

John Carter: Movie Review

It's hard to parse Andrew Stanton's John Carter without acknowledging that the film has become a curiosity, as it's a very expensive movie that never figured out how to sell itself. But that has nothing to do with the quality of the film itself, which suffers from a number of very familiar problems to the science fiction and blockbuster genres. Though the spectacle is...

Concept art from John Carter
Andrew Stanton's John Carter has gone through a paradigm shift in its marketing. Earlier it was selling moody shoots that didn't really tell the story of Taylor Kitsch's titular Carter, who is missing from Earth and thought dead. It gave a hint of his role as savior for Martians, with one played by Willem Dafoe. Now, (as they made obvious recently ) it's an action...

With John Carter's release date fast approaching, Disney is gearing up for the March 9 release of one of their most expensive films of 2012.

One of the most interesting films of next year is John Carter, the Andrew Stanton-directed film starring Taylor Kitsch and Willem Dafoe. The long-in-gestation project (which has had Harry Knowles, Kerry Conran and Jon Favreau attached at different points) is hoped to be the first in a franchise. Stanton talked to the New Yorker about the film, and told them the film...

John Carter is a big expensive question mark. It stars Taylor Kitsch - who gave a breakout performance on the TV version of Friday Night Lights - and is directed by Andrew Stanton, who is best known for his work on Pixar animation. The material by Edgar Rice Burroughs has been floating around for a while, and at one point Harry Knowles of...

john carter of mars begins production
Over the past couple weeks, Pixar's upcoming 3D, CGI feature John Carter of Mars has been in the news due to the change of its release date. It was originally set to be a summer blockbuster, but was moved up March 9, 2012. That means director Andrew Stanton and his production team have less time to make the finishing touches on the digital feast. Over at MTV, they...

I can honestly say I didn't see this coming. For a while now we've been reporting on the film adaptation of the sci-fi book series John Carter of Mars. Wall-E director Andrew Stanton will helm the feature for Disney, based on the stories written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The two lead characters, John and Dejah have been cast...
