Disney unveils adorable 'Feast,' schedules other short films for 2015

After the announcement of a Frozen short, Disney’s next three shorts have all been slated through 2015: Two hail from Disney’s own animation studio and one comes from Pixar, but all three look to continue the recent trend of impressive and heartwarming short films.

Feast is the closest film on the horizon, set to debut behind the Disney-Marvel collaboration Big Hero 6 on Nov. 7. From Disney Animation Studios and the director behind Disney’s Oscar-winning short film Paperman, Patrick Osborne, Feast follows Boston terrier Winston, the latest in a long line of adorable dogs in Disney films. Winston loves to eat the unhealthy food his owner drops on the floor, but both of their lives take quite the culinary turn when the owner’s girlfriend, a chef, moves into their home. Taking place over many years, the film is inspired by Osborne’s own habit of taking a picture of his life—and his meals—each day.

After Feast, Disney has two more planned shorts on the way. One will return viewers to the world of Frozen, as Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and more will reunite on screen in Frozen Fever sometime in 2015. The last announced short, Pixar’s Lava, focuses on a singing volcano looking for love. The short will screen behind Pixar’s next full-length film Inside Out, which arrives in theaters on June 29, 2015. Lava was originally planned to debut behind The Good Dinosaur, which was pushed from this summer to November 2015.

Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' gets fall 2015 release date

Ever since the original script leaked for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, there have been doubts about the film ever making it to the big screen. But after a poster and a theater-released teaser, it looks like Tarantino’s post-Civil War western is perhaps more difficult to kill than some thought. And now, The Weinstein Company has officially signed on to distribute the film.

The Weinstein Company announced its partnership with Tarantino along with the news that The Hateful Eight—which will be shot on 65mm film and have the widest 70mm film release in more than 20 years, according to a press release—will begin principal photography in January with a domestic release slated for the fall of 2015.

The Weinstein Company previously partnered with Tarantino on 1992’s Reservoir Dogs and 2012’s Django Unchained.

'Oldboy' director Park Chan-wook to direct adaptation of 'Fingersmith'

Park-Chan-wook.jpg

Perhaps best known for his harrowing film Oldboy, Korean director Park Chan-wook has kept busy both at home and abroad. Having directed four other films since his famous 2003 thriller, including his English-language debut with Stoker, Chan-wook is returning home with his latest project.

Chan-wook has chosen to adapt the 2002 novel Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, a Victorian-style crime novel that the director will be putting his own spin on. The London-set novel will be shifted to 20th-century Korea during a period of Japanese rule in Chan-wook’s film, which currently has a Korean title, Agashi. The name translates to “young lady” or “miss” in English—which is fitting, considering the book’s original plot.

Waters’ novel follows the plight of orphan Sue Trinder, who, in the care of Mrs. Sucksby, grows close to a family of thieves living in her adoptive home. Known as fingersmiths, they corral Sue into one of their schemes, asking her to become the maid to the wealthy Maud Lilly in a plot to steal her inheritance. The plan loses its way, however, when Sue begins to fall in love with Lilly.

Agashi is currently in the process of casting, and Chan-wook plans to begin filming in 2015.

Watch a new clip from James Franco's 'The Sound and the Fury'

Thanks to the difficulty of William Faulkner’s stream-of-consciousness writing, his novel The Sound and the Fury has only seen one major film adaptation, released in 1959. That is, until James Franco decided to take a stab at the perennial high school English-class favorite. Franco’s adaptation, which he directed and also stars in, has a new clip to show fans of Franco and the novel what’s in store.

Sam Claflin chugs a horrifying cocktail in new 'Riot Club' clip

The-Riot-Club.jpg

Hazing is part of any secret college society experience, and it looks like the titular group of Universal Pictures’ The Riot Club is no exception in a new clip released from the film.

In the clip—which, fair warning, may churn a few stomachs—a new initiate of the Riot Club is kidnapped from a quiet study session in the library by a group of club members. Blindfolded and surrounded by the gleeful Rioters, the group forces Alistair Ryle, played by The Hunger Games‘ Sam Claflin, to both gulp down a glass of wine filled with a mixture of bodily fluids and maggots, and then correctly identify the wine’s make and year.

The Riot Club tells the story of two new students at Oxford University with dreams of joining the school’s most exclusive society, the Riot Club, which is modeled after Oxford’s Bullingdon Club. The film is based on Posh, the 2010 play which the film’s screenwriter Laura Wade also wrote.

From An Education director Lone Scherfig, The Riot Club will make its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before releasing on Sept. 19.

'Life' remembers Ingrid Bergman's landmark career

Cinephiles and casual film fans alike will have some familiarity with Ingrid Bergman’s large body of work. The actress is perhaps most widely remembered for her starring role opposite Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, but Bergman’s more than 40-year career is replete with memorable—and award-winning—roles. On the anniversary of her passing, Life has compiled a gallery of Bergman to celebrate her career.

In tracking Bergman’s time in the spotlight, which included three Academy Awards and appearances in films like For Whom the Bell TollsJoan of Arc, and GaslightLife recalls a 1943 interview with the actress in which she said, “I am an actress and I am interested in acting, not in making money.”

Bergman acted until late in her life, frequently appearing on television and onstage in addition to her work on film. But her time in the spotlight also put her personal life front and center for many of her fans.

Head over to Life‘s remembrance of the actress to learn more about her personal and professional life and see photos of her work.

'Harmontown' trailer shows good, bad, nerdy parts of Dan Harmon's life

HARMONTOWN.jpg

For many fans of Community, the show seems incomplete without its creator, Dan Harmon. The backlash to season four, before which Harmon was fired, is just one of many examples of that sentiment. But, if anything, Harmon’s one-season departure from the sitcom—he’s since been hired back—created a groundswell of support and devotion for Harmon.

The writer used his hiatus to tour the country with his podcast, and filmmaker Neil Berkeley recorded everything along the way. Harmontown the podcast became Harmontown the movie, and a new trailer gives Harmenians, the nickname for Harmon’s devotees, a taste of what to expect when the film debuts.

“I want to be the guy that makes people happy,” Harmon declares at the end of the trailer, which sets up the nerdiest road trip film many audiences will have ever seen. Harmontown follows the beloved showrunner and his friends as they play Dungeons and Dragons with some celebrity guests along the way. The trailer intersperses talking-head interviews with castmembers of Community and other comedians who have worked with Harmon, like Jack Black and Sarah Silverman, as the film looks to investigate Harmon himself and the impressive following he’s garnered over the years.

Harmontown will receive a limited theatrical release on Oct. 3 and will be available on VOD nationwide the same day. This may not be the “movie” Community fans had in mind when they began the “six seasons and a movie” campaign, but it will hopefully satisfy them for now.

'The Maze Runner' will be shown in three-screen panoramic format

Some movies are just too big for the big screen. That’s the thinking behind Escape, a three-screen digital panoramic setup that audiences will be able to experience for the first time in showings of The Maze Runner starting on Sept. 19, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This holiday is always a slow one at theaters, and in all likelihood, Guardians of the Galaxy will once again claim the top spot to bid farewell to a season that is looking like it will net out at an eight-year low.

Here’s how things might play out.
