Get Ready for "Finding Dory" -- the "Finding Nemo" Sequel with Ellen DeGeneres! 

This is the best story I've heard in a while!

Disney and Pixar are moving forward to making a "Finding Nemo" sequel, this time it's going to be called "Finding Dory."


Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!

I think "Finding Nemo" is the best Pixar movie ever made and Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, is certainly one of the most memorable characters of the Disney/Pixar world.

In a statement, DeGeneres said, “I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time...I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating ‘Toy Story 16.’ But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It’s got a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is—it’s got a lot more Dory.”

Yes, Ellen, we've waited for this day for a long, long, long, long time as well!

The sequel is supposedly set on the California coastline and will be one year after the events of "Finding Nemo." "Finding Dory" will include many characters we fell in love with in the original such as Marlin, the Tank Gang, and of course, Nemo.

Andrew Stanton, the guy who wrote and directed the first "Finding Nemo" in 2003 will helm the sequel. Stanton was also universally panned with his "John Carter" flick last year.

Also returning is Albert Brooks who voiced Marlin in the original.

So save the date, "Finding Dory" will swim into theaters on Nov. 25, 2015 just in time for your Thanksgiving!

"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" Blasts Away Competition with $41.2 Million; "The Place Beyond the Pines" Makes Headlines at Specialty Box-Office 

Good things come to those who wait, at least for Paramount Pictures. The studio shelved "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and waited nine months from its original release date and voila, the sequel hit box-office gold. The action extravaganza featuring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Bruce Willis, and Channing Tatum debuted at No. 1 with $41.2 million. The film opened Wednesday at midnight bringing its domestic total to $51.7 million.

The sequel to G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" also marched at the top of the international box office earning $80.3 million. "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" opened worldwide with a very muscular $132 million box-office total.

Previous weekend's box office champ, "The Croods," from DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox slipped to No. 2 with $26.5 million. At No. 3 was "Tyler Perry's Temptation" with $22.3 million.

Not doing so well was Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" follow-up, "The Host." Starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, and Jake Abel, the sci-fi romance debuted at No. 6 with just $11 million.

Good news at the specialty box-office was brought upon by Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond the Pines." Opening in just four theaters, the Focus Features film starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, and Eva Mendes grossed $270, 184 for a per theater average of $67,546.

Here's the estimated Top 10 Box-Office Films for the weekend of March 29th:

"The Host" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Does the Movie Get? 

Author Stephenie Meyer returns to the big screen with “The Host,” a sci-fi action adventure that is all about love. Much like the “Twilight Saga,” “The Host” features a romantic angle that features Saoirse Ronan as the human/alien Melanie & Wanda, Max Irons as Jared who’s in love with Melanie, and Jake Abel as Ian who falls head over heels for Wanda. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol (“Gattaca,” “In Time”), will fans of the book love “The Host?” Take a look at my review:

Saoirse Ronan (Melanie/Wanda) Talks About “The Host” 

I love, love, love Saoirse Ronan! The talented young actress is incredibly sweet and down-to-earth in person. From “Atonement” to 2011’s “Hanna,” Ronan has been proving that she’s a good actress who puts forth her character first. In the new movie “The Host,” Ronan stars as a young woman with two battling voices – Melanie, the human, and Wanda, the alien. She’s also in love with not one but two men, Jared (Max Irons) and Ian (Jake Abel). In this interview, we talked about:

*** My source of powers HA! She was very curious about my bracelets
*** What got her interested in “The Host?”
*** How she embodied the character
*** Did Stephenie give her directions on how to attack the character?
*** Her obsession with Lady GaGa
*** Like the Melanie/Wanda character, when was the last time your heart says yes but your mind says no

Have fun!

Max Irons (Jared) & Jake Abel (Ian) Interview for “The Host” 

I loved meeting these two actors from “The Host.” I sat down with Max Irons before for “Red Riding Hood” and it was nice to see him again, this time in the Stephenie Meyer creation “The Host” from writer/director Andrew Niccol. Irons plays Jared, the boyfriend of Melanie, while Jake Abel stars as Ian, the human who falls in love with Wanda/Wanderer. In this interview, we talked about:

*** Their interest in making “The Host”
*** The bizarre love triangle of “The Host”
*** Acting with Saoirse Ronan
*** The notion of the peace-loving aliens invading Earth
*** The CGI effects in the movie – the eyes? The mirrors in the cave?
*** Like the Melanie/Wanda character, when was the last time your heart says yes but your mind says no

Have fun!
