I’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers. His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak. He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter. In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil. So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number. We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions. NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!
One year ago I made some bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out. My performance was mixed–got some, missed some others. But now it’s time to look ahead to 2016. Jump after the break to see what I predict will be the top ten grossing films of the year along with 33 other movies I’m making some bold predictions on!
What if our favorite Disney Princesses decided to don a new look, and dress up as Superheroines? Who would they be? Well, thanks to Artist Isaiah K Stephens we can see what these amazing women would look like with their alter egos. For example, Aurora above has chosen to dress up as Daenerys Targaryen. See Belle, Ariel, and so much more after the break.
Tim Burton’s weird version of Alice in Wonderland made a ton of money for some reason. I’m not sure why. It did. I caught it when I was visiting my parents off their cable system. It was weird and freaky, with Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp being odd. You know. Standard Tim Burton movie.
Anyway, there’s a sequel that Burton didn’t direct coming soon. Trailer after the cut.
Alice In Wonderland was my favorite book as a child, and this year it celebrates its 150th anniversary.
Even if you weren’t a fan, there’s good reason for you to be. See after the cut to find out why.

Remember when Mel Brooks decided to take some of his old comedies and turn them into Broadway musicals? It worked out pretty well for the guy. Well, Disney decided somewhere along the line that what they really needed to do is take some of its classic animated films and turn them into live action movies. So, we got a live action Cinderella, that Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland…thing, and the villain’s side of Sleeping Beauty with Maleficent. But that may be kid’s stuff compared to the next one, namely The Jungle Book, where most of the cast is a bunch of talking animals and one kid.
See the trailer after the cut. I am not sure if it is even remotely faithful to Rudyard Kipling’s original, but Kipling was clearly not thinking far enough ahead in terms of special effects advancement in the motion picture era. I mean, really. Where else were we going to get Bill Murray as Baloo the bear?
This year, in celebration of the Annecy festival’s focus on women animation artists, the mini-shorts made by Gobelins paid tribute to women animation pioneers.
The shorts aren’t intended to be literal biographies, but rather to evoke the life and accomplishments of each artist. The five artists honored with films were Mary Blair, the Disney Studio’s most influential woman art director; Evelyn Lambart, first Canadian woman animators; Claire Parker, co-inventor of the pinscreen animation technique; Lotte Reiniger, director of the first European animated feature; and Alison de Vere, the first woman to win an award at Annecy.
