The emotionally powerful ending of 'Toy Story 4' could have been very different, according to director Josh Cooley.
A look at the big winners and losers emerging from the Oscar-launching film festival.
The first film was nearly a total disaster that almost killed the hit-making animation studio before it had even begun.
Toy Story 4 dominated the box office this weekend, breaking the UK record for the biggest three-day haul of all time for an animated movie.
Double Oscar-winner Tom Hanks admits he’s been “completely shaped” by the character of Woody over four 'Toy Story' films.
Hollywood star Tom Hanks took to the red carpet for the European premiere of Toy Story 4, saying making the final instalment of the series transported him back in time. The A-lister, who voices Sheriff Woody in the much-loved Pixar series, said putting down the vocals for the film's emotional denouement triggered a "transcendental moment". Speaking on the red carpet in London's Leicester Square for the film's European premiere, Hanks said he had been forced to "collect himself" after becoming emotional.
The first reactions for Toy Story 4 have emerged and it looks as though Pixar has another masterpiece on its hands.
'Toy Story 4' producer Jonas Rivera admits it wasn’t just the public asking that question, it was also being asked by the creatives tasked with the job of finding the story the fourth film.
In fact, the Tom Hanks conspiracy peril-a-thon has taken a bit of a panning at the hands of the critics. Helmed once again by Ron Howard, Hanks’ magizoologist, sorry, symbologist, is on the trail of Ben Foster’s Betrand Zobrist, a scientist bent on solving the human race’s population problem in a particularly apocalyptic manner. Langdon too finds himself the subject of a manhunt, though he’s assisted along the way by ‘Rogue One’ star Felicity Jones’s Dr. Sienna Brooks.
When the cast of the 1998 WWII movie was sent to boot camp to prepare by Steven Spielberg, things almost went spectacularly pear-shaped. “It was the worst experience of my life,” said Edward Burns, remembering his time in a Hertfordshire boot camp while sitting a few months later on the set of ‘Saving Private Ryan’. Determined to make his movie as authentic as possible, director Steven Spielberg hired legendary movie military advisor and former U.S. Marine Corps Captain Dale Dye (pictured below on right with Hanks and Spielberg) to whip the main actors into shape before shooting started.
