The actress and comedienne, Anne Meara, has passed away at the age of 85. Mrs. Meara (1929-2015) was known best as the better half of the comedy duo Stiller and Meara alongside her husband, Jerry Stiller. She also acted in many films/TV shows over the years. I personally knew her best on the sitcom, Archie Bunker’s Place. Animation fans will recognize her as Winnie from Planes: Fire & Rescue.

Whether you enjoyed last year’s Planes or not, Disney was adamant about making a sequel to it that they even planned the sequel’s release date before the original was even released!

And now, the sequel has been released and opened up at the #3 slot in the weekend box office. The film, which features our main character thrust into the world of fire and rescue missions, made a weekend gross of $18 million. With a budget of $50 million, the film could probably still make some sort of profit.

I’ll probably check the film out when it comes to DVD because it actually interests me more than the original, but not so much as to see it in the theaters. Also, Ed Harris is one of the voices and he’s always awesome!
