Part of the magic is that even when out in space or in a rat-run restaurant, Pixar films stay earthbound. What’s most striking about “Inside Out” isn’t its inside-the-brain gee-whiz design, but that it’s probably Pixar’s most directly human story yet: An 11-year-old girl, growing up.

“Gerard Depardieu was very insistent. He really wanted us to show it,” said Fremaux, speaking Monday by telephone. “I’m not saying we did it to keep him happy, but let’s say that he insisted a lot.”

LOS ANGELES | Dinosaurs are anything but extinct at the box office. “Jurassic World,” the fourth film in the series, devoured 2015 box office records in its debut weekend earning an estimated $204.6 million, according to Rentrak on Sunday. It’s also the second-highest domestic opening of all time, right behind “The Avengers” which took in $207.4 […]

Barthes is, essentially, giving us the end before the start. It would have been more effective to get there gradually. We now need to put this image behind us, and focus on how Emma got to her moment of crisis. But the drama of the next 117 minutes never lives up to that of the first.

Set in Pittsburgh, the city where all misfit youths come of age (see: “Wonder Boys,” ”The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” ”Adventureland,” etc.), and based on a book of the same name, this is the tale of a high school senior who befriends a girl dying of leukemia.

NEW YORK | Melissa McCarthy notched her first No. 1 box-office debut as a leading lady with the $30 million opening of the espionage comedy “Spy,” leaving the guys of “Entourage” in the dust. The result added to the string of success of McCarthy and writer-director Paul Feig, who first united on the 2011 hit “Bridesmaids.” […]

When you pay for HBO like I did for many years, you can end up with a strange sense of entitlement. No fourth season of “Deadwood”? Outrageous. No second season for “John From Cincinnati”? Unfathomable. Perhaps that final shot of Tony Soprano cutting to black opened a Pandora’s box of wish fulfillment when it comes […]
