Spaceship Earth at the EPCOT Center has turned into Mike Wazowski.
Yes, to promote the upcoming "Monsters Inc" sequel "Monsters University," Disney has turned their famous Spaceship Earth (you probably know it better as "pointless golf ball-looking thing") structure into a large, equal parts adorable and horrifying version of Mike Wazowski, a main character (a main monster?) from the two films voiced by Billy Crystal. The way they were able to do it is incredibly impressive, if a little over-the-top and a lot "1984"/"Lord of the Rings"-ish. Get More »
It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »

Unlike most movie follow-ups, "Monsters University" takes its main characters James "Sulley" Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) back a phase to show how they became the pair of lovably scary scamps we got to know in 2001's "Monsters, Inc."
As the title suggests, the story takes place at the college where the two first meet (lucky this is an animated world where they can easily age in reverse) and from the looks of this new clip, their initial encounter is just as festive and messy as one might expect. Get More »

"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is 2013's inaugural sequel in a year chock full of them (29 in all). With this much franchise volume in one year, it's good to keep some perspective in terms of which series we're primed for ... and which ones shouldn't have had a first movie to begin with.
From the bad to the rad, here's our rundown of all the follow-ups fans have been clamoring for — or haven't, as the case may be. Prioritize your sequel viewing, people. Get More »
Man, 2012 was a pretty darn good year for films, right? "The Avengers," "Lincoln," "The Hunger Games," "Silver Linings Playbook," seriously, we could go on and on, as this past year has been one of the best in recent memory.
And that has us even more amped up to see what Hollywood does for an encore. Sure, 2013 has some pretty big shoes to fill, but there are always news movies to see, new adventures to experience, new stars to meet and new pop culture obsessions waiting to be born.
So with that in mind, we've put together our list of the top 50 Movies We’re All About in 2013. Because last year is just so last year. Get More »
You've no doubt heard about that whole thing where Disney bought "Star Wars." And you've probably seen all of the fan-created mashups where the various "Star Wars" heroes and villains interact with Disney characters. They're oddly uplifting, no? As if the Empire built the Magic Castle instead of the Death Star.
Now, what if, in an alternate world in a galaxy far, far away, Pixar (another Disney purchase) bought Universal Studios? Sure, that would mean that Halloween Horror Nights probably wouldn't feature girls in slave bikinis trapped in cages anymore, but it would also mean that the studio behind your favorite animated films (such as, you know, "Monsters Inc.," which comes out in 3-D this weekend) would now own the classic Universal monsters.

Choosing the right college is one of the most important decisions any student faces in their life. The right choice can start you on the path to success, while the wrong choice can have disastrous results. It can be a very scary experience.
Luckily, though, there's a brand new website that will help answer any questions you may have about the world's preeminent institution of higher learning — and when it comes to "Monsters University," being scared is just a part of the curriculum.
Are you ready for Fear 101?
There really are things that go bump in the night, but apparently that's just the sound of them studying for finals.
On the eve of their adventurous new movie "Brave" Disney and Pixar are giving us a sneak peak at their first-ever prequel "Monsters University," which precedes 2001's beloved "Monsters Inc." by about a decade, as evidenced by a slim-trim version of John Goodman's friendly furry Sulley. Get More »
