Pixar Hired Topher Grace To Edit A Toy Story Memory Vault And It’s Pretty Great

Topher Grace is a great actor. We all know this. But did you also know he’s an outstanding editor? Some of you may remember his epic edit of all ten Star Wars films, which went viral several months ago. He also did a supercut for The Hobbit trilogy as well.

It’s always been a relaxing hobby for him, but now it looks like studios are actually paying him to edit.

Pixar asked Grace to make a fun/emotional edit that recaps the first three Toy Story movies.

Now Grace is taking us down memory lane with a special cut that recaps the first three Toy Story movies, including bits on main characters like Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jesse, and introductions for all the new faces brought in for the sequels. 

It’s a pretty emotional cut, especially if you grew up with the Toy Story franchise. If you haven’t watched the fourth film yet, don’t read the comments on the YouTube video because there are spoilers.

Check out the sweet edit below…

Topher Grace Joining Jon Stewart’s Political Comedy Film ‘Irresistible’

Jon Stewart continues to load up the cast for his upcoming political comedy movie, Irresistible. He already has the incredibly talented Mackenzie Davis, Steve Carell, Rose Byrne and Chris Cooper, and now he’s adding Topher Grace.

As most of you know, Grace has been on a hot streak recently. He starred in the award-winning film BlacKkKlansman last year, Under the Silver Lake, and he had a small role in Interstellar. He’s slowly making people forget about his days on That ’70s Show.

No word on how important his role will be in this movie, but we know Carell will have a starring role…

Carell is portraying a Democratic political consultant who helps a retired ex-Marine colonel, played by Cooper, run for mayor in a small Wisconsin town. Byrne will play Carell’s Republican counterpart and Davis will play the daughter of Cooper’s character. Grace’s role is being kept under wraps.

Stewart wrote and will direct this film. Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment will produce, which is a good sign because they seem to only produce award-winning films.

No word on a release date, but we will keep you posted.

Topher Grace Creates Star Wars Trailer For All 10 Movies, And Everyone Is Impressed

Apparently, Topher Grace is a huge Star Wars fan, and while his wife was out of town for the weekend, he got together with one his friends to create a mega trailer for the franchise. A trailer he calls, Star Wars: Always.

He tweeted out the trailer with the caption, “10 movies. 2 nerds. 1 weekend (when our wives were out of town). Enjoy… #everypartofthebuffalo.”

And it’s safe to say, everyone is impressed by his work. Patton Oswalt tweeted out…

As cnet points out, this isn’t the first time Topher has showed off his editing skills…

It’s not the first time Grace has worked his editing skills on Star Wars. He edited the prequels into an 85-minute movie in 2012, and inspired other fans to undertake similar projects. He also worked his magic on the overlong Hobbit trilogy last year, whittling an eight-hour experience down to two.

The Director Behind ‘It Follows’ Has A New Movie Coming Out This Year, Get The Release Date Inside!

Remember the 2014 horror/thriller ‘It Follows,‘? Of course you do. The film was a surprise hit and was one of the best movies of 2014. It was incredibly unique and bizarre in the most perfect way. The film received an impressive 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and was nominated for several awards.

The director of the movie, David Robert Mitchell, hasn’t released a film since It Follows, but that’s about to change. The wonderful film company A24 announced this week that Mitchell’s latest movie, Under the Silver Lake, will debut in select theaters in Los Angeles and New York on June 22. It’ll be released nationwide a few weeks later.

Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough, and Topher Grace star in the movie, which is described as a modern-day noir crime thriller set in Los Angeles.

“The film centers on a man who becomes obsessed with the strange circumstances of a billionaire mogul’s murder and the kidnapping of a girl.” 

Well, I’m down. You got A24, Mitchell and Garfield…working together to create a crime thriller? I think it’s safe to say I’m going to enjoy this movie.

Kristen Stewart And Jesse Eisenberg Star In Red Band ‘American Ultra’ Trailer

Yesterday we showed you the intriguing trailer for Jesse Eisenberg’s new movie with Jason Segel, The End of the Tour. And now we have another Jesse-filled movie trailer to share with you all.

American Ultra stars Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. It’s being described as an action/comedy/thriller/stoner’s wet dream. It’s also being compared to Pineapple Express, which should be all the motivation you need to watch the trailer. It also reminds me of the underrated TV show, Chuck.

Nima Nourizadeh directed the film, and Max Landis (Chronicle, Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling) created the script. Landis is an interesting character. If you watch some of his interviews, and even his random videos on YouTube, you can tell he really wants to write original stories. If you’re interested in learning more, check out the interview he did on the Explain Things to Me podcast.

I am excited about this film for several reasons. The reunion of Stewart and Eisenberg, the Chuck-like feel to the trailer, and the fact that Topher Grace is in the movie. I feel like most people don’t appreciate his comedy skills. He has great comedic timing.

Check out the official plot synopsis and trailer below. The film hits theaters August 21.

“A stoner and his girlfriend’s sleepy, small-town existence is disrupted when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out.”

 

Movie Review: Interstellar (2014) – Like the Grapes of Wrath in space

interstellar2

I’m sure the people who made Interstellar are still shaking their heads about how they got their butts handed to them by Big Hero 6 opening weekend. Sitting firmly in the number 2 spot, Interstellar is making money, but I’m sure it was a lot less money than Paramount intended.

Matthew McConaughey takes a break from filming pretentious Lincoln commercials to play Joseph “Coop” Cooper, a widowed engineer with ace piloting skills. For some reason, despite being an ace pilot, he’s farming corn with his father-in-law (John Lithgow) and two kids, 10-year-old Murph (Mackenzie Foy) and teenage Tom (Timothée Chalamet). The planet is dying and schools are teaching farming, while everyone is waiting to suffocate from air filled with gas. Stuffed into the movie are info-dumps where old people talk, documentary style, about how it used to be before we ruined the planet. Now, the people on Earth have two goals. Farm corn and find another planet…probably to farm more corn. So, because the best person to send into space is a corn farmer, Coop is sent along with sexy copilot Amelia (Ann Hathaway), an astrophysicist (David Gyasi), a geographer (Wes Bentley), and some robots to find a new place to live.

The effects in this movie are awesome and it does have it’s moments of gripping the edge of your seat thrills. It’s a thrill ride, while at the same time, just a bit depressing. This is not Star Wars. It’s more like the Grapes of Wrath in space. From Coop’s rural dystopia, to his travels into space, everything has an air of desperation and depression.

Interstellar-Movie-Review-464422-5

It almost seems like someone tried to stay as close as possible as to what the real apocalypse would look like. Forget old testament stories of lightening coming down from the sky and mass floods, if there is an end to the world, this is what it will look like. People slowly dying off because we can no long make food and the chemicals we put in the atmosphere are coming back to get us. In that, this movie is highly realistic.

This movie is scientifically cutting edge and I wish they’d just focused on that, rather than sticking all this sticky sweet sentimentality and messages of hope into it. That’s where it falls flat for me. I feel like the director is in the audience punching me in the face, screaming “cry, already!” while I’m sitting there saying, “but I want Mathew McConaughey to die!”

Matthew McConaughey was a big problem for me during this movie. His good ole boy “awe shucks’ charm feels like a poor fit for such a desolate, depressing place. He has this air of cockiness that you just can’t shake, whether he’s playing an aging cowboy with Aids or a dude who refuses to move out of his parent’s basement. In those roles, it worked, while in this one, I found it distracting.

Interstellar is a decent movie, but it’s also a bit forgettable, as far as I’m concerned. While it did a great job when it came to the science, I felt that it fell apart when it came to the human connection. Regardless, it’s still a film that’s worth the watch.
