In the past two decades, computer animation studio Pixar has captivated audiences all over the world with an abundance of original stories, unforgettable characters, unique settings, and complex emotions. Pixar makes films that aren’t just great animated films, but great films period. So ranking them is damn near…
Wall-E is almost nine years old, so maybe it’s time to re-evaluate the movie. Maybe it’s not a morality tale about consumerism and the environment, with Wall-E as the example of purity. Because a new fan theory posits that the adorable robot is, in fact, Satan, and guys? It makes more sense than you’d expect.
Mondo is mainly known for their insanely gorgeous collection of pop culture posters and other collectible pieces, but in recent years, it’s also transformed itself into an event. The third MondoCon begins this weekend, and to celebrate, io9 has a look at three of the gorgeous prints that will be available to attendees.
In some alternate universe, Pixar’s Wall*E was about a small robot stranded on an uninhabited Earth, voiced by Matt Damon. Someone’s mashed up the trailer for The Martian with the animated flick, and it works out pretty nicely!
Update: It looks like Amazon pulled the listing last night. Hopefully it will still honor any pre-orders it accepted last night.
Humanity’s future in space is very much in the planning stages. Will we float among the stars in crazy spaceships? Will we set up small camps that sprawl into townships that grow into cities, or is an orbital mothership more human friendly?
The concept of Inside Out sounds unbearably twee, not to mention borrowed from the sitcom Herman’s Head. We’re seeing inside the head of a young girl, where each of her emotions is a cartoon, voiced by a comedian. But Inside Out is actually a brilliant movie about the beginning of wisdom.
Back in February, Lego announced that it would be putting Angus MacLane’s WALL•E Lego Ideas model into production. Which is fitting, because Angus is actually a Pixar animator who worked on the film. And today, courtesy of the SmythsToys website, we might finally have our first look at the official Lego version of…
The latest round of Lego Ideas sets have gone through the cooker and the next set has been announced: Lego WALL-E. Though that set idea looks pretty amazing, many have been waiting for Lego to make a decision about a couple sets that were carry-overs from the last review process. It has been decided, Lego is going…
Yet another new restaurant with robot servers has opened in China. And the owners seem determined to test Disney's patience with intellectual property laws. Why? The name of the restaurant is apparently Wall.e — just like the cute little robot worker from the 2008 Pixar film.
This would make more sense if Eve wasn't far less amiable than Baymax. She must take after her mother more than her father. On the other hand, they both are outfitted with weaponry that is out of place with their original functions.
You might not think it at first, but WALL-E and Interstellar share some similarities in their premise - what with a ruined Earth being abandoned by Humanity for pastures new among the stars. But their realities become even closer in this trailer that shows you just how editing can completely change a movie's tone.
It's no surprise that I love this. This movie trailer uses footage from Wall-E, my favorite Pixar movie ever, and transforms the story to match the trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, which from what we've seen so far, is going to be fantastic. The result? An absolute thrill ride.
I've got no complaints about Pixar's version of Wall-E and EVE, but I love this alternate version of the two heroic robots. Somehow it captures their essences, while still completely changing them.
The Apocalypse rules pop culture. Half the biggest literary novels these days are apocalyptic, and meanwhile The Walking Dead is a huge hit. Post-apocalyptic stories are what space opera was in the Space Age. But what are they about? Here are 10 types of apocalypses, and what they each signify.
Okay, maybe not literally. And sure, maybe remarking an already adorable movie with hyper-adorable kittens is something of a gimme in terms of viral videos. Still, you can't deny it's a remake of Wall-E starring kittens. You must watch.
Sometimes trailers can be a tad misleading. We've all seen trailers that got us all pumped up for films that turned out to be kind of weak. But the opposite happens too: Sometimes a great movie has a horrible, no-good trailer. Here are 10 amazing movies whose trailers made them look dreadful.
