There are very few things in this life you can count on, but one of them is that when the folks at Pixar make a movie, chances are they'll hit it right out of the damn park.
The CGI animation division of Disney has the best track record in the business and is known for retaining a story-centric level of quality control as intricate and precise as the Sistine Chapel -- but with more talking animals.
As Pixar's latest, "Brave," hits theaters, we decided to gird our loins and compile all the facts you'll ever need to know about the studio. Read on to learn the secret of Pixar's success, or at least to overload on the almost embarrassing amount of success it's had. Get More »
Disney and Pixar's latest creation, "Brave,"takes place in the beautiful, mystical Scottish Highlands. So who better to lend her voice to the rambunctious teenage princess Merida than Kelly Macdonald, just about the hottest Scottish actress today?
While she may have already had the accent down, acting for an animated movie was completely foreign to Macdonald. In an interview with Film.com, the "Boardwalk Empire" actress talked about the difficulties she faced while making "Brave."
"I definitely sort of found that everything has to be more, you can’t get away with subtlety," Macdonald says in the interview. "I use my face a lot to tell stories or emote, and to not be able to do that, it’s like learning a whole new process. It was difficult."
Macdonald also spills on her surprising lack of preparation for the role, the timeless quality of "Brave" and what her mother thinks of the movie. Head over to Film.com to read the full interview. Scottish accent not included.

In the UK, redheads or "gingers," once considered evil demonic spawn, are regularly insulted and abused. But we in America have a long-standing love affair with strawberry locks, so much so that many blondes and brunettes have dyed their hair to become famous fiery redheads, a la Lucille Ball, Nicole Kidman and Emma Stone.
In honor of Pixar's new "Brave" heroine Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), we've assembled our list of favorite cinematic gingers -- and by that we mean the characters were redheads, not necessarily the actors. Yes, they're all ladies, but we'd love it if more actors like Damian Lewis, Michael Fassbender and Kevin McKidd let their ginger flags fly high. Rupert Grint can't be the only one to represent, guys.

It's clear at this point that Pixar's track record is the best in the business, so why fight the fact that you want to see "Brave" so bad?
Yeah, it's about a princess, but did we mention that Princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald) of the Scottish kingdom of DunBroch is an arrow-shooting, bear-battling badass of the highest caliber? She ain't bad lookin' neither, especially if you dig redheads. Let this latest animated masterpiece cast a spell on you with these four clips.
Disney and Pixar's latest feature "Brave" is about to hit theaters, and we're giving away some prizes that are sure to bring out your inner child.
"Brave" follows the hardheaded teenage Princess Merida as she takes charge of her own destiny and shows some true bravery to save her kingdom. The movie is inspired by the Scottish folklore tradition, so it's only fitting that Merida's adventures live on past the movie in literary form.
Five lucky fans will each receive a "Brave: One Perfect Day" hardback book by Steve Purcell and download code for the "Brave" Storybook Deluxe app to pass down the legend of Merida from generation to generation. Get More »

It's almost hard to believe, but with the conclusion of Sunday's Academy Awards, this year's awards race is now officially over -- and the race to the 2013 Oscars has officially begin.

If these films we've assembled as our early (way early) 2013 Oscar predictions are anything to go by, next year's race promises to be a solid one. Bring them on!
