Even though we know every last frame came out of a giant rack of computers, Coco is no less spectacular to watch. It's arguably one of Pixar's most beautiful animated films, and this brief behind-the-scenes look at how the movie's colourful Land of the Dead was built only adds another level of awe to the experience.

If we told you last year that a movie about a mute woman having a torrid, romantic relationship with a modernised version of the Creature From the Black Lagoon was going to dominate at the Oscars in terms of nominations, you might have chuckled a little to yourself. 2017 was a simpler time. The 2018 Academy Award nominations are in and there's a lot for genre fans to be happy about.
Did you agree with every single entry and ranking on our best films and TV series of the year lists? We doubt it. After all, even we didn't agree on everything in there, so why would you? To give these aggrieved souls a chance to speak their mind, here are some of the shows and movies we wished we'd managed to sneak in there.
Denis Villeneuve throws water on the rumours he'll direct the next Bond. Meet the characters of Black Panther in some stunning new posters. The Umbrella Academy and Deadly Class adaptations find key members of their casts. Plus, a few new teases for the big CW/DC crossover and new footage from Riverdale. Spoilers get!
When it came to making the Land of the Dead skeletons for the upcoming Disney film Coco, Pixar had a unique challenge on its hands. Since so much of animation is about ooey-gooey humans, how do you build characters stripped of their flesh, muscle and organs without terrifying an audience of kids? By making two little exceptions to the rule.
Shazam might have found its villain. Legendary Pictures producer Cale Boyter dashes hopes of a Pacific Rim/Godzilla/Kong crossover. Wayward Pines is no more. Ben Barnes cryptically confirms his return to Westworld. Plus, a new clip from Coco, and meet four mysterious new characters from Agents of SHIELD's next season. Behold, spoilers!
Watching Coco, I couldn't stop thinking about Back to the Future. Both films are about young men who travel to an impossible place and have to solve an issue with their family. Both feature the travelling character fading out of existence, they both play the guitar, both films feature important musical performances -- and both hinge on a photo.
Arnold Schwarzenegger teases the next Terminator movie. Pixar's Coco casts an Agent of SHIELD. See Thor's new team in action in a new Ragnarok featurette. Plus, tons of behind the scenes pictures from Justice League, and John Carpenter will be back in the director's chair for a new Syfy Horror anthology. Spoilers ahead!
The Happytime Murders expands its cast. Get a look at Paul Bettany's mysterious Han Solo character. Stephen Amell hints at a happier future for Oliver Queen in Arrow's next season. Plus, the first look at The Magicians' third season, and new clips from Rick and Morty and Kingsman: The Golden Circle. To me, my spoilers!
Video: Laughs, drama, music, family -- the latest trailer for Pixar's Coco has it all. While the last few trailers did a great job of hiding much of what Coco is, this new one sets up the story and stakes very directly. The result is more drama than before, but also more humour -- and still plenty of gorgeous visuals. Check it out.
