Whoa, Pixar's Now Got Nothin' Going for 2014

Disney-Pixar Disney-Pixar

Disney-Pixar has held a steady one-a-year release pace since '05, but next year the streak will be broken.

Mhmm. For the first time in almost a decade, an entire year will go by without one of the studio's new animation sensations rolling out, and according to the Los Angeles Times, it's because "The Good Dinosaur" has gone bad.

"The Good Dinosaur" was set to be co-directed by Bob Peterson of "Up" acclaim and feature a boy who befriends an Apatosaurus in a world where dinos weren't killed off before humankind came along, but apparently the writer-director's deadlines were nearing extinction without results, and the studio decided to pull him from the project.

Stepping in to help co-director Peter Sohn salvage the bones of this "Dinosaur" for now are John Lasseter ("Cars"), director Lee Unkrich ("Monsters Inc.," "Toy Story 3") and Mark Andrews ("Brave"), but Pixar has not set a full replacement for Peterson just yet.

How about that heap of dino drama.

So now the pic, which was originally scheduled for release on May 30, 2014, has been pushed back to Nov. 25, 2015, and that "Finding Nemo" sequel, "Finding Dory," won't bow 'til summer 2016. 2014, meanwhile, is left empty of Pixarness. Oof. A year without income is tough stuff, even for a wildly successful studio.

The pseudo-good news is that Pixar lovers'll get a double helping in 2015 when "The Good Dinosaur" is finally hatched after Pete Docter's brainy and uberexciting "Inside Out" land in theaters on June 19, 2015.

Inside Out

No word yet on whether the casting of "The Good Dinosaur" — which included Neil Patrick Harris, Judy Greer, Bill Hader, Frances McDormand and John Lithgow — will be affected by the delay.

Oscar might be the word of the day, but for some folks, their own names were what rung loudest and proudest during this morning's 2013 Academy Award nominations read-out. Sure, some of them were just as baffled by some of the snubs as the vociferous folks of the Twitterverse, but they couldn't complain too much because, hey, they just got a chance at the most elite prize in the biz.

So, in the day's spirit of actors and such talking about actors and such, we've gathered here the nominees' various reactions to this year's nods. You can probably read between the lines on a few of these.

Best Actresses

Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook": "I'm so honored and grateful for this nomination and to be in the company of such talented actresses. Having the fortunate opportunity to work with David O. Russell was an extraordinary gift and I am so thrilled for my fellow cast members Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver who are all nothing short of amazing. This was a labor of love that we all poured our hearts into and could not be more thankful to The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein for their unyielding support of the film" (ET Online).
