Disney said today in announcing the film that it is set in a suburban fantasy world and centers on two teenage elf brothers who embark on a quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.
“At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth,” Scanlon said. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
Scanlon first tipped the film at Disney’s D23 convention last year under the working title Suburban Fantasy World. He said the plot is inspired by the story of his childhood and how his father died when

Benedict Cumberbatch is expected to reprise his role as Stephen Strange, along with co-stars Benedict Wong and Rachel McAdams. “Doctor Strange” centered on Cumberbatch’s surgeon character deciding to practice mystic arts after a career-ending car accident left his hands injured. Instead, he began learning about the astral plane, the hidden world of magic, and other dimensions.

Variety has confirmed that the streaming service will not be bringing the drama series back for a second season. The series was set in a small rust belt town in post-recession America, where a one-dollar bill changing hands connects a group of characters involved in a shocking multiple murder. It starred John Carroll Lynch, Nathaniel Martello-White, Christopher Denham, Philip Ettinger, Kirrilee Berger, Gracie Lawrence, Joshua Bitton, Nike Uche Kadri, and Hamilton Clancy.
The series was created by Jason Mosberg, who executive produced along with Craig Zobel, Matt DeRoss, Alexandre Dauman, and Graham Gordy. CBS Television Studios produced in association with Anonymous Content
“While ‘One Dollar’ won’t be coming back for another season, we’re incredibly proud of its artistically presented 10-episode story, which will continue to be available for streaming on
Dancing With the Stars, which has long aired two seasons per calendar year, is skipping a Spring 2019 cycle, TVLine has confirmed.
Though it’s not yet clear what prompted the competition series to sit out a midseason run, Dancing is coming off a controversial 27th season. After multiple well-scored frontrunners were eliminated prematurely (including R&B singer Tinashe and Fuller House actor Juan Pablo Di Pace), the Mirrorball was ultimately awarded to country radio DJ — and very dark horse — Bobby Bones, who had scored much lower than his three fellow finalists.
21 Laps will make the series, which was co-created by Jonathan Entwistle, who was behind Channel 4 and Netflix show “The End of the F***ing World.” As with that project, the series is an adaptation of a Charles Forsman graphic novel.
In the novel, the main character, a regular suburban 15-year-old freshman called Sydney, has telekinetic powers that kick in at inopportune moments.
A place on the list — always made up of 25 films — guarantees the film will be preserved under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act. The criteria for selection is that the movies are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant.
“The National Film Registry turns 30 this year and for those three decades, we have been recognizing, celebrating and preserving this distinctive medium,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “These cinematic treasures must be protected because they document our history, culture, hopes and dreams.”
The 2018 selections bring the total number of films in the registry to 750. Hayden will discuss the 25 new films with Leonard Maltin on Turner Classic Movies at 8 p.m. E.T. Wednesday.
The new titles
The docuseries will be directed by Joe Berlinger, who is helming a separate scripted film about the serial killer, “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” which stars Zac Efron as Bundy, and will premiere at Sundance.
The four-part series will feature previously unheard audio of interviews with Bundy while he was on death row in Florida. This unique and gripping doc series focuses on the man whose personality, good looks and social graces defied the serial-killer stereotype, allowing him to hide in plain sight as he committed the brutal sex-crime slayings of more than 30 women before being caught in 1978. While on trial, Bundy received extraordinary adoration from American women, which made his gruesome crimes doubly haunting, even in an era of anything-goes mayhem.
It will premiere on Jan 24, 2019, 30 years after the date of his execution in Florida.
“I have not known how to write this post; social media is an odd, impersonal place for grief, often an odd place to commemorate a life,” Kemp wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “A few sentences cannot address the love, humor, courage and strength of a man loved by so many. Pedro Jimenez was a beloved member of our crew and here since season one.”
Jimenez, a production assistant on the show, died after being hit by an SUV while setting up parking cones for a shoot in Brooklyn early Monday morning. Production on the show was temporarily suspended following the accident.

On the 10th floor at the Center for American Progress, the venerable center-left think tank, several hundred policy wonks, reporters from the major networks and news outlets, Hill staffers and other attendees squeezed into a modest meeting room for an event titled “Eliminating Racial Disparities in Maternal and Infant Mortality,” a woefully under-covered yet critical subject. Surely, some in the room had come to hear from
The amount awarded to the women was not disclosed at their request, according to a CBS News spokesperson. “The matter has been resolved,” CBS News said in a statement.

“Room and a bed with a parking lot view/ Star-crossed souls without a clue,” Baird sings over acoustic strums and staccato strings. “We’re all just ashes floating through the night/ Holding on what’s left of sweet time,” he observes, building to a lengthy, lonesome slide-guitar solo.

Frontman Ian Anderson explained in a statement “We continue to present the 50th Anniversary concerts in many countries and regions not visited in 2018, and also many Tull repertoire shows in Europe. There will be, of course, my usual charitable cathedral and church concerts in December. In the USA – many would argue – 2019 is really the 50th Anniversary for Us fans since we first visited in early 1969.”
There’s no disputing that Rami Malek is terrific as Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” or that the movie itself is highly entertaining. But does it misrepresent the real story of Mercury and Queen? We put that question to screenwriter Anthony McCarten, no stranger to films based on true stories.
How much input did the surviving members of Queen, particularly Brian May and Roger Taylor, have into the script?
Anthony McCarten I met them and recorded interviews over several days, and they were very respectful. I made the case that a film is a painting, not a photograph, and that as long as you’re faithful to the truth of what it felt like, shaping and conflation can be necessary. They’re sophisticated men, and they went on the journey with us.
I found the movie quite enjoyable,
