Official new Lincoln movie trailer!

Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln in the #LincolnMovie Trailer

The trailer for the DreamWorks Pictures/Twentieth Century Fox Lincoln movie is now available!  I was really excited to watch it and I can tell it’s going to be an excellent movie.  Even in the trailer you can feel the weight of the decisions that were pressing on Lincoln’s shoulders.  I have a feeling I’m going to need a packet of tissues while watching.

They’re back!  Disney•Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. 3D

Disney*Pixar's Monsters, Inc 3D Hits Theaters on December 19, 2012

Monsters, Inc. has always been one of my favorite Disney•Pixar movies, so I’m very excited that they’re returning it to theaters starting December 19th.  And this time it’s in 3D!  I love that Disney has been pulling recent favorites out of the storage closet and bringing them back to the big screen.  It’s nice to be able to share them with the next generation!

Today is National Dog Day!

I honestly didn’t even know there was a National Dog Day; when it comes to our dogs, every day seems like a day dedicated to them – we love them that much!

Growing up we always had a dog.  My parents got their first one – named Benji – a few weeks before I came home.  We literally grew up side by side; I couldn’t have asked for a better friend, and it was heart-breaking when he passed away when I was in junior high.  After that there was Dinah, Gabriel (Gabe), Beauregard (Beau), and Mo (named by the shelter, we actually called him Mozilla for some odd reason).  Pretty sure that somewhere down the road, Mo’s ancestors had bred with a kangaroo, because I’ve never in my life seen a dog leap three or four feet vertically off the ground.

We don’t currently have a dog but my father-in-law received one for Christmas last year, and she visits us often (much to Bubbles’ delight).  So we’d like to say happy National Dog Day to Gus!  (Yes, that’s a boy dog name, and Gus is a girl, but hey.)

Happy National Dog Day Gus

Happy National Dog Day, Gus!

There’s also another dog that will soon be working his way into everyone’s hearts, and that’s Frankenweenie!  He’ll be scampering into theaters on October 5th!  Directed by Tim Burton, it’s sure to be an awesome film; The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorites!  I’ll have more details for you later, but in the meantime you can check Frankenweenie out on Facebook.

Happy National Dog Day Frankenweenie

Do you have a dog?  Or maybe you had one growing up?  I’d love to hear about them!

One of the most classic movies of all time is The Wizard of Oz.  We all know Dorothy’s story – but what about the man behind the curtain?

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Oz The Great And Powerful

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures fantastical adventure Oz The Great And Powerful seeks to answer that question.  Director Sam Raimi imagines the origins of the Wizard, himself.  When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot: fame and fortune are his for the taking!  That is, until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting.  Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late.  Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity – and even a bit of wizardry – Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

Oz The Great And Powerful will land in U.S. theaters on March 8th, 2013.

Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE is in theaters now, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still hard at work with new projects.  One of their next films will be Monsters University, the prequel to the highly-praised Monsters, Inc.  Directed by Dan Scanlon (Cars) and produced by Kori Rae (Up, The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc.), the film unlocks the door to how Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) overcame their initial differences and became best of friends.

Disney/Pixar's Monsters University

We are really looking forward to the film.  Monsters, Inc. is one of my all-time favorite movies.  Between Mike’s jokes, Sully’s soft heart, Boo’s adorableness, the surprise ending – there was nothing about it we don’t like.  We own it on DVD and watch it now and then.  Bubbles loves the monsters and giggles right along with Boo.  Hopefully we will be able to take her to see the new one in the theater!  The film opens on June 21st, 2013 and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters.  While it’s almost an entire year away, the first trailer has been released!  There are four slightly different versions; this one is the “Clothes” one.

You can also head over to the Monsters University Facebook page and see three other version of the trailer.  Vote for your favorite and the winning line from the fan favorite will be drawn by a Pixar artist and shared exclusively with Monsters University Facebook fans!
