It's finally here. The Good Dinosaur has been announced, then pushed back, was sort of remade and the finished filmed just reached our theaters. Originally, Bob Peterson (co-director of Up) was going to direct it, but he had to leave the project in 2013. Pete Sohn (Partly Cloudy) took over as the solo director; a change of director is usually not a good sign. However, Pixar has had a few of those situations in the past, and at least one of them ended with a brilliant film (Ratatouille). Some other times, it hasn't been that great (ahem, Cars 2).
Fortunately, The Good Dinosaur is closer from Ratatouille than Cars 2. Our review below.

Marvel's next big event is looming on the horizon, with a release date set for the 29th April (UK) / 6th May (US), 2016. Captain America: Civil War is sure to be a box office hit next year, as most of the superheroes from the MCU (plus some new faces) will collide in what looks like an epic showdown. Watch the trailer below.

Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures have released another teaser for their upcoming feature film, The secret Life of Pets. It's a rather cute one, but don't expect big revelations on the plot. In fact, expect nothing at all. This is just a nice little Christmassy video informing you that the film will arrive next summer.
The first trailer for Disney's upcoming Zootopia just dropped on the Walt Disney Animation Studios' YouTube channel, and it's priceless. A warning though: this is more a clip than a real trailer. Watch it below.

This is kind of a good news/bad news situation here; the good news being that, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Edgar Wright will co-write and direct an animated film at DreamWorks centered on the concept of shadows. Now, the bad: Me and My Shadow, another DreamWorks project helmed by Alessandro Carloni with a similar concept seems to be cancelled for good.
