We will have a video of the entire press conference up soon, hopefully in the next day or so - we do have a couple of clips in the article.
We were invited to the press conference for Disney-Pixar's Coco, which arrives in theaters November 22nd and has already become the highest grossing animated film in Mexico after just a few weeks of being open - and I believe with adjustments for inflation, it is the #1 film of any kind there now. I am hoping Coco will bring out big crowds here too. I've learned a lot about Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) from Disney recently due to Coco in the various parks (including Epcot's "Remember Me" exhibit). For the press conference, a lot of the cast was there. Those who took part are Anthony Gonzalez "Miguel"; Benjamin Bratt "Ernesto de la Cruz"; Gael García Bernal "Hector";, Alanna Ubach "Mama Imelda"; Edward James Olmos "Chicharron"; Lee Unkrich (Director); Adrian Molina (Writer and Co-Director); and Darla K. Anderson (Producer).

We received the Blu-ray of Disney-Pixar's Cars 3 to review, a little later than usual so my review is up just as the title goes on sale. Cars 3 is one of the movies I didn't have the chance to preiew this year ahead of time, we were traveling a lot this summer and so I don't have a theatrical review of the movie but I will review the film here as well now that I have seen it.
"Thor: Ragnarok" Press Conference Brings Out Cast and Filmmakers Including Chris Hemsworth and Kevin Feige
We were invited to the Thor: Ragnarok press conference in Beverly Hills earlier this month. The newest Marvel film releases on November 2nd, 2017 and has received glowing reviews (including from our correspondent). Participants in the press conference were Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Taika Waititi ( Director/Korg), Karl Urban ( Skurge), Rachel House (Topaz), and Kevin Feige (Producer). This was a fast paced press conference that lasted for about a half hour, with the cast throwing one liners to each other constantly at times.
Before reading the rest of the article, here is the press conference. There are spoilers, so you may want to save it until after seeing Thor: Ragnarok.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales releases on October 3rd on 4K Ultra HD™/Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, it is already out on digital. This is one of a few movies this year that I didn't have a chance to review ahead due to being out of town, so I am reviewing both the film and the Blu-ray in one shot. The press release is also below.
