In the same week Disney scores big with Big Hero 6, Pixar announces yet another sequel in the works. Is this cause for worry or is Pixar's second golden era upon us?
This week on DVD Pixar's Brave and the re-boot of The Amazing Spider-man both take aim for home entertainment superiority. We also take a look at the underrated holiday heartwarmer Arthur Christmas, the apocalyptic comedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and two cheesy direct to DVD action films: one that has Bruce Willis and the other with Steve Austin and Steven Segal.
The Scottish fairy tale Brave is a sweeping, touching, and funny epic that will delight young and old with the perfect, classic blend of Disney and Pixar magic.
We talk to director Mark Andrews and producer Katherine Sarafian about their work together on Disney/Pixar's Brave, all of the research they did, and why the hardest and most important things in animated films are appealing characters and a great story.
Enter to win a pair of passes to see an advance screening of Pixar's Brave in Richmond Hill, Whitby, Mississauga, Coquitlam, Langley, Ottawa, Calgary, Winnipeg, or Edmonton on Thursday, June 14th from Dork Shelf and Walt Disney Studios Canada!
Wrapping up our look at the cinematic offerings for the month of June, we take a look at some real heavy hitters with Brave, Moonrise Kingdom, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Snow White and the Huntsman, Rock of Ages, and Piranha 3DD, which will undoubtedly win the box office crown for the month.
