Last week, Disney/Pixar released an preview clip for their upcoming Brave which gave audiences an extended look at the movie's protagonist, the non-traditional princess Merida (voiced by Boardwalk Empire's Kelly Macdonald), and her archery skills. During Sunday's Oscar broadcast, the studio released the movie's first TV spot.
The spot offers a broader look, going through the movie's various characters, including King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) as well as Merida, without revealing much dialogue. In fact, the only thing said at all is Merida asking in voice-over: "if you had the chance to change your fate, would you?" watch the TV spot >> Posted 02.28.12 by Ryan
Princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald) challenges her family's and country's traditions in the upcoming Brave, proving herself to be anything but a fair maiden in need of protection. The latest clip offers another look at just how determined (and rebellious) Merida is in her quest to make her own path in life — and just how good her archery skills are compared with her prospective husbands'. And, we're happy to note, the clip gives us reason to hope for a Pixar summer blockbuster. Watch the clip >> Posted 02.23.12 by reelz
After releasing a teaser trailer in June and a few stills this week, Disney/Pixar is finally ready to reveal the first full-length trailer for the upcoming movie Brave.
Utilizing the fantasy genre and a female protagonist for the first time, Brave follows the courageous but nontraditional princess Merida (voiced by Boardwalk Empire's Kelly Macdonald), who's better with her bow and arrow than she is pretending to be a proper lady. Once she defies an age-old custom of the three lords of the land — massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane) — she must turn to an eccentric old witch (Julie Walters) for help. While neither Merida's defiant act nor the witch is revealed, the basic outline of the story is presented, and Pixar fans won't be disappointed. watch the trailer >> Posted 11.17.11 by Ryan
The teaser trailer for the upcoming Disney/Pixar movie Brave was released in June, but not much has been heard about the movie since. Finally, Empire has released two new stills from the movie, giving Pixar fans something to look at before the movie opens next June (August in the U.K.).
Brave is a movie of firsts for Pixar, with the movie being the first to have a female protagonist as the main character, and the first to utilize the fantasy genre. Set in the Highlands of medieval Scotland, Brave follows the courageous princess Merida (voiced by Boardwalk Empire's Kelly Macdonald), who defies tradition and must resolve the chaos that follows her decisions and actions. The latest stills again show Merida, as well as a first look at the three lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). more about Brave; plus see the other photo >> Posted 11.14.11 by Ryan

At last month's San Diego Comic-Con, there were some very noticeable absences, including the superhero ensemble The Avengers, John Carter and Oz: The Great and Powerful.
There was a lot of speculation as to why these highly anticipated projects were not present at what has become the biggest movie convention in the world. Maybe the projects were too early in development and there simply wasn't any finished footage for fans to drool over. There was also talk that studios were skipping Comic-Con, not seeing the payoff in box office results. Well, it looks like there's a simpler explanation, at least for those projects under the Disney banner — they were saving those presentations for its own convention.
At D23 in Anaheim this year, Disney gave many what they were hoping to see in San Diego. Attendees saw scenes from Avengers scenes between Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). EW and CinemaBlend have descriptions of these scenes. The movie opens May 4. what else was shown at D23? Posted 08.21.11 by Chris
