Original ‘Aladdin’ Co-Writer Says Disney Isn’t Paying Him Anything for the Live-Action Remake

But there’s one reaction that particularly stands out: That of Terry Rossio, one of four screenwriters on Disney’s original animated Aladdin, who claims that the studio isn’t crediting — or paying — any of them despite adapting their script for the remake.

‘Isle of Dogs’ Review: Wes Anderson Made a Very Good Film About Such Very Good Boys
Wes Anderson is known for a lot of things: An idiosyncratic and detail-oriented style, masterful use of color, nice dress socks, keeping Bill Murray employed… and killing (fictional) dogs. In 2012, following the release of Moonrise Kingdom, a New Yorker piece asked, “Does Wes Anderson Hate Dogs?” Perhaps it’s no coincidence that his latest effort, a stop-motion adventure set in Japan, is called Isle of Dogs. When you say it out loud, it sounds like “I love dogs”; the title itself refutes the notion that Anderson has it out for man’s best friend.

‘Wonder’ Trailer: Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay Are Going to Make You Cry
After you watch the first trailer for Wonder, two things will happen: First, you’re going to need to grab some tissues because something damp might be happening around your eyeball-area. After you’ve successfully tended to that whole situation, you’ll probably demand — out loud, to no one in particular — the names of the complete monsters who made this movie.
Han Solo ‘Star Wars Story’ Kicks Off Production With First Cast Photo
