Before herds go wild in theaters, let's know the following species that will bring us an adorable prehistoric story in The Good Dinosaur. (in alphabetical order, click on the photos to enlarge)
Know the characters in this wonderful and inspiring Pixar movie.
BUCK (Marcus Scribner) is Arlo’s brother: they’re the same age, but Buck is bigger, stronger and a little rambunctious. He likes to tease his fearful brother as often as he can—and Arlo is an easy target. Buck’s size, strength and confidence allow him to do things that Arlo can’t imagine doing—like ripping a tree out of the ground with his teeth. LIBBY (Maleah Padilla). Arlo's sister Libby is a capable and willful girl who can plow a mean field. The little trickster has a great sense of humor, and loves playing silly pranks on her family.
BUTCH (Sam Elliott) is a rugged and intimidating Tyrannosaurus Rex—showcased by the gruesome scar across his face. A veteran rancher who’s a real pro when it comes to herding longhorns, Butch encourages his kids Ramsey and Nash to learn by doing, hurling them into one hairy situation after another. Butch likes nothing better than trading war-stories over a campfire at the end of a long day.
MOMMA (Frances McDormand). A loving wife and mother, Momma is smart and quick-witted. She’s a hard worker with a lot of love for her family, and she keeps her children and their farm in order. Her quiet strength is the backbone of the family.
An enthusiastic young Tyrannosaurus Rex, NASH (AJ Buckley) lives for adventure, and loves when something unexpected breaks up the routine of rounding up longhorns with his father, Butch, and his big sister Ramsey. He isn’t the sharpest of spurs and has trouble keeping track of their herd, but his mischievous charm and positive attitude make him good company out on the range.
PET COLLECTOR (Peter Sohn) is a mysterious Styracosaurus who lives in the wilderness. Like Arlo, he harbors unreasonable fears. His ability to blend into his surroundings helps—along with an unusual (but not exactly fierce) collection of forest critters he’s recruited to protect him.
POPPA (Jeffrey Wright). Brave and selfless, Poppa is a devoted husband and father, working tirelessly to make a life for his family on their farm. He has a soft spot for Arlo, his small and fearful son, and takes special care of him as he grows up. Poppa believes in Arlo and knows that with enough perseverance, Arlo can overcome his fear and make his mark.
The PTERODACTYLS (Steve Zahn, Mandy Freund and Steven Clay Hunter) are a search-and-“rescue" team of five. They like to sit back and let the often-treacherous storms in this part of the world do their dirty work, then reap the benefits of the devastation. But when these flying hunter-scavengers set their sights on Spot and Arlo, they’re in for a big surprise.
A fearless, whip-smart and no-nonsense Tyrannosaurus Rex rancher, RAMSEY (Anna Paquin) loves the challenge of driving a herd of longhorns with her father, Butch, and her little brother Nash. Ramsey has a lively, outgoing personality—she likes good jokes, tells a mean story and has a soft spot for those in need.
RAPTORS (Dave Boat, Carrie Paff, Calum Mackenzie Grant and John Ratzenberger) prey on the prized herd of longhorns that belong to Butch and his Tyrannosaurus Rex family. Raptors—or Rustlers, as Butch calls them—sport wiry, feathered bodies and hardly compare in size or strength to a T-Rex. But as a group, the Raptors pose quite a threat, and even a T-Rex may need to call in reinforcements before tangling with them.
Opening across the Philippines on Nov. 25, “The Good Dinosaur” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures. Follow the official social media accounts of Disney in the Philippines, namely, (FB) WaltDisneyStudiosPH, (Twitter) @disneystudiosph and (Instagram) @waltdisneystudiosph and use the hashtag #GoodDinoPH.

WONDER WOMAN takes flight in 2017

The Amazon Princess will take over the cinemas after her debut in Zack Snyder and Warner Bros Pictures' Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. Principal photography is underway and I'm proud to show you a first look of Gal Gadot in the character.
The film also stars Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films), Ewen Bremner (“Exodus: Gods and Kings”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”) and Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”).

The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers.

Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement,” “Pan”), and Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “V for Vendetta”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”).

Set to open in 2017, the Wonder Woman feature film is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

In the meantime, you can watch the trailer of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice below:

Tadaa! NYSM2 trailer is out and here's what I think of it

Finally the magical trailer of Now You See Me has been posted online and NYSM fans could be reacting happy or sad with the new movie. Here are my takes on the new trailer:
  1. At least majority of the Four Horsemen are still present. Isla Fisher of course cannot join Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Wilder (Dave Franco) and McKinney (Woody Harrelson) in their magical stunts. We wish you well, Henley Reeves.
  2. Jesse Eisenberg cuts hair. When we expected Lex Luthor to be bald in Batman v Superman, he comes clean in this sequel. Well, almost bald.
  3. Lizzy Caplan playing Lula could have better acts than Reeves. I still like the bubbles act from the first movie though. But still this is just the trailer, there could be more magic to anticipate when we see the first movie.
  4. A great team should have an epic squad photo like this one.
  5. The most awaited arrival of a true-blood wizard, Harry Potter! errmm.. Daniel Radcliffe finally joins the cast as Walter but he has some magic boo-boos. Still a magical name, right Disney?
  6. There'll be more street and spectacular magic and I can't wait.
Well in case you want to see the whole trailer, here it is. Returning in the movie are Mark Ruffallo as Dylan Rhodes; Michael Caine as the billionaire show producer Arthur Kressler, And joining in are Sanaa Lathan, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Jay Chou. Now You See Me 2 opens in theaters June 2016.

Next summer, they’re back. Witness the all-new NOW YOU SEE ME 2 teaser trailer - Appearing in theaters 2016! #NYSM2

THE HUNTSMAN posters are here and they are fierce

Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron returns on another epic adventure in the sequel of Snow White and the Huntsman and they are now joined by two new characters, an Ice Queen and The Warrior. The Huntsman: Winter's War now focuses on the story how the Huntsman and Ravenna (Theron) are intertwined.
Universal Pictures reveal the characters that we will be seeing this April 2016.

Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain join the our leads in this legendary tale, directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan.

Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.

When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.
