Disney’s agreement to distribute films by Dreamworks Pictures has moved Disney into the horror business. Not the cute Haunted Mansion variety of horror either, but rather full blood curdling fun of Vampires. “Fright Night” is an updated take on the 1985 horror and vampire classic. At least it’s a popular trend these days. Plus two of my favorite actors are in it (Toni Collette and David Tennant).

Fright Night flies into theaters August 19th, 2011.

The full plot synopsis is below the jump:

Here’s a movie that may be flying low on your radar. It’s called ‘The Help’ and I think it could be one of summer’s sleeper hits. Here’s the synopsis if you haven’t heard about it before:

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award–nominated Viola Davis “(Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minnie—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk.

From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

A new featurette has just been released. Check it out below the jump:

Former Pixar Animator Rodrigo Blaas created the animated short Alma on his own time while working in Emeryville. It’s been wowing crowds in festivals and on the internet since he released it. Now the film has been optioned for a feature treatment, but unfortunately not by Disney or Pixar. Rather Dreamworks has hired Blaas to direct the Alma blowup and co-direct Trollhunters. Not sure why Disney lost out here, but good for Blaas for making the jump to director.

If you haven’t seen Alma before, check it out below the jump:
