The plot for the fourth instalment is said to be a "love story" that will pick up where 'Toy Story 3' ended.
Pixar Animation's most successful franchise will be returning to the big screen as a fourth instalment of 'Toy Story' has been set for a release date of June 16, 2017, by Walt Disney Co., which owns Pixar.

The exciting announcement, which occurred on Thursday (Nov 6th) during an earnings call, also named John Lasseter as the director of 'Toy Story 4.' Along with Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, who worked on all three previous films, came up with the new plot.

His 'Two and a Half Men' co-star Jon Cryer came in second on the Forbes Magazine poll
Ashton Kutcher has topped the list of Highest Paid Actors in Television for a second year running, earning an estimated $24 million over the course of June 2012 and June 2013, according to Forbes Magazine. The star of the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men has made most of his money from his role on the Chuck Lorre show, as well as a considerable amount from his role as Steve Jobs in the biopic about the late Apple co-founder.
Like the man he portrayed in the flop biopic, Kutcher also has a keen business sense, and has made some of his millions by investing in a number of emerging businesses. The Jobs actor has stakes in tech companies Airbnb, Foursquare and Path, however it is his role as billionaire Walden Schmitt that has earned him the largest chunk of his impressive yearly earnings. The Forbes estimate does not take into account any of his business earnings, only what he has earned through the entertainment industry.
Kutcher's Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer also made the list, coming in at second with an estimated $21 million in earnings between 2012 and 2013. Angus T. Jones, who is no longer a series regular after a video of him condemning the show as "filth" emerge online, also made the list thanks to his role on the show. Although his stint as a regular on the series has since ended, having recently been replaced by Amber Tamblyn as a series regular, Jones is still likely to make a considerable amount of regular income thanks to the show's syndication.

Disney shamelessly plays the cute card here, turning what could be a revealing documentary into something almost painfully adorable. We can't help but smile and sigh all the way through this delightful adventure, even though everything has been bent to make these wild creatures as human as possible. Frankly, this does a huge disservice to the realities of nature. But it does make the film a lot more engaging.
The camera crew traveled to the deepest rainforests of Ivory Coast in West Africa, where they follow a young monkey they name Oscar. He's being raised by his loving mother Isha, who teaches him how to crack nuts, collect berries and mash his fruit. Their clan is led by the aloof but benevolent Freddy, who helps protect them from outside threats. The main danger comes from a neighbouring valley, where the greedy Scar leads his band of thuggish chimps on raids into Freddy's peaceful paradise. And when Isha is killed in one of these attacks, Oscar struggles to fit in with his extended family. With nothing to lose, he turns to Freddy himself, with unexpected results.
There's a genuinely amazing story at the heart of this film: alpha males almost never adopt scruffy under-aged orphans as their own. And the growing bond between Oscar and Freddy is astonishing to watch. But then Oscar is so relentlessly cuddly that he'd probably even melt Scar's heart given half the chance. Unfortunately, the filmmakers paint Scar as pure evil, vilifying him so completely that they actually undermine the law of the jungle. And all of this is further manipulated by Allen's trite narration and an annoyingly obvious score.

The adorable wildlife documentary 'Chimpanzee' following the life of one orphaned primate is due to hit the UK this Spring.
Oscar in Disneynature's 'Chimpanzee'
Soon to arrive in the UK is the new heart-warming Chimpanzee movie following the life of a happy-go-lucky orphan primate.
If you're a sucker for cute baby animals and the like, look no further. This epic Disney Nature documentary follows the story of a 3-year-old chimp named Oscar who lives along the Ivory Coast with his large and doting family. He's just like any young chimp; excitable, playful and inquisitive of the world around him. However, his idyllic life takes a turn for the worst when he loses his family following an ambush from another group of enemy chimps and he is left in the jungle all alone. His attempt to take care of himself and integrate with the new group seems fruitless but he is soon rather unexpectedly taken under the wing of the leader male who treats him as his own.
Thank God! Almost as good as the original, Toy Story 2 is an unabashed crowd-pleaser to children and adults. With enough (non-offensive) adult humor and plenty of good-natured kid stuff, this film had our tiny audience in stitches from start to finish.

As I write this, the time is 8:32 p.m. on Thursday, November 18, 2004, and I have just walked out on "Christmas With the Kranks" after roughly 45 minutes of mind-numbingly humorless, sit-com barrel-bottom idiocy.
An adaptation of John Grisham's "Skipping Christmas" that has been violently stripped of any semblance of humanity, this supposed comedy is about a couple called the Kranks (ha, ha, ha), played by Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, whose daughter won't be home for Christmas, so they choose to bow out of the festivities altogether and take a cruise. But apparently their choice amounts to a social offense of the first order in the bogus, plot-device suburbia where the movie takes place (during a transparently bogus winter). It even makes the newspaper.
Soon an army of neighbors are beating down their door like some Yuletide Gestapo, angrily demanding they put up their seasonal decorations while Curtis inexplicably cowers inside like a child.

At least one of the seven credited writers of the sequel-for-sequel's-sake holiday kiddie flick "The Santa Clause 2" clearly felt obliged to try to remedy the picture's contemptibly contrived premise by writing some really funny dialogue. And at least for-hire director Michael Lembeck (a sitcom vet making his screen debut) managed to infuse the movie with a fun, touching, sweet spirit.
But these acts are akin to Christmas miracles, coming as they do under the burden of a plot -- scratch that, a gimmick -- that revolves around finding even more fine print on the calling card of a dead St. Nick, which turned divorced suburban dad Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) into Santa Claus in the original family comedy from 1994.
It seems the elves waited eight years to inform their new Santa that he has until this Christmas to find a Mrs. Claus -- or else. "The de-Santafication process has already begun," frets head elf Bernard (David Krumholtz) as he shoos Scott off to find a wife. Meanwhile cherubic techie-elf Curtis (played by Spencer Breslin, one of those child actors who runs all his lines together without taking a breath or showing a hint of inflection) clones a big, rubbery toy Santa automaton (played by Allen in heavy prosthetic makeup) to stand in for Scott (unconvincingly) so the other elves won't learn of his predicament and panic at his absence.
