Very loosely based on the Marvel superhero team of the same name, “Big Hero 6” will follow the adventures of Japan’s premier metahuman guardians and their fight against a mysterious kabuki-masked villain. The voice cast for the film includes Ryan Potter as Hiro Hamada, Scott Adsit as Baymax, Jamie Chung as GoGo Tomago, Damon Wayans, Jr. as Wasabi, Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon, and T. J. Miller as Fred. With their recent successes "Wreck-It Ralph" and "Frozen," Disney is looking to continue its profitable streak with another hit, and the Marvel tag certainly won't do any harm. As an added bonus, the latest Disney animated short film, “Feast,” will be attached to “Big Hero 6” when it hits theaters on November 7th.

Ouija

Those who believe in the supernatural properties of a Hasbro board game will have their faith validated on October 24th with the release of the horror filmOuija.” While attempting to contact their deceased friend with the titular toy, a group of adolescents unwittingly unleashes a violent and demonic force. While the teen screams sub-genre has never been the place to look for innovation (or for that matter, quality), it's still disappointing when a by-the-numbers film like "Ouija" drops a trailer. The film, which is being produced in part by Michael Bay (of "Transformers" fame), features Douglas Smith ("Big Love"), Olivia Cooke ("Bates Motel"), Daren Kagasoff ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager"), and Matthew Settle ("Gossip Girl").
