Antonio Banderas Says Shrek May Appear in Puss in Boots 2

28 March 2015 5:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It's been five years since DreamWorks Animation released a "Shrek" movie. The last installment grossed $752 million worldwide on a budget of $165 million, showing that there's still plenty left in the franchise. DreamWorks hasn't been developing any more "Shrek" films, but has instead shifted its focus to "Puss in Boots," which earned $555 million worldwide back in 2011. And with a "Puss in Boots" sequel now in the works, Antonio Banderas revealed that Shrek may make an appearance. "I heard some rumors that Shrek may be coming back," he said of "Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves." "That would be great. Shrek doing a cameo in my movie? Yeah, I'd like that." Banderas went on to provide a status update. "They are restructuring the script now," he explained. "We started, but that's the process. A lot of people participate in the creation of the script and the story and the narrative, »

Shrek cameo planned for Puss In Boots 2?

27 March 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Antonio Banderas has hinted that Shrek may make a cameo appearance in Puss In Boots 2: Nine Lives and Forty Thieves.

The sequel to 2011's Puss In Boots was due for release on December 21, 2018 under director Chris Miller, before DreamWorks faced restructuring and the loss of 500 jobs - pushing the sequel back.

Speaking to Empire, Banderas said: "I heard some rumours that Shrek may be coming back. That would be great. Shrek doing a cameo… in My movie? Uh, huh! Yeah, I'd like that."

He added: "They are restructuring the script now. We started… but that's the process. A lot of people participate in the creation of the script and the story and the narrative, everything. And they include you!

"They take you to California and you read the script with them, give them your ideas, and a couple of months later you see a new script where everything has been touched up. »

'Shrek' May Cameo in 'Puss in Boots 2'

27 March 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though Shrek Forever After was touted as the final film in that animated franchise, DreamWorks Animation has teased that a Shrek 5 may be in the works. Though, that has never been confirmed. But rest assured, we probably haven't seen the last of the big green ogre and his pals. Talking with Empire, Puss in Boots himself, Antonio Banderas, hinted that Shrek may actually show up in the impending sequel Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves, though it will probably be just for a cameo. The actor says:

"I heard some rumors that Shrek may be coming back. That would be great. Shrek doing a cameo... in My movie? Uh, huh! Yeah, I'd like that."

That sequel is still a good three years away, as Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves won't hit theaters until at least December 2018. That was the film's original release date, but for now, »

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water movie review: Bikini Hero 6

27 March 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Absurdity abounds in this odyssey of groan-worthy punning, new ways of defying cartoon physics, epic food fights, trippy time-travel, and superhero sendups. I’m “biast” (pro): SpongeBob is my spirit animal

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It is utter animated anarchy as the recipe for the delicious artery-clogging Krabby Patty disappears from Mr. Krab’s vault and the apocalypse descends upon the sleepy underwater burg of Bikini Bottom. If that sounds like marine-flavored word salad to you, maybe something with a bit of seaweed in the mix, you can safely skip The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. But if the prospect of seeing an angry mob of vaguely aquatic creatures pillaging in Mad Max leather while SpongeBob teams up in the most improbable way with Plankton to get the recipe back and save the town sounds like fun, »

Shrek To Return For Puss In Boots 2?

27 March 2015 6:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Shrek Forever After may have proclaimed itself ‘the final chapter’ back in 2010, but the jovial green swamp-dweller may not be finished on the big screen. According to Antonio Banderas, the man behind DreamWorks Animation’s feline-focused spin-off, a return for Mike Myers and Shrek is on the table for Puss In Boots 2. "I heard some rumours that Shrek my be coming back,” Banderas tells the Empire podcast.Puss In Boots was of course, a Shrek-free affair that spun out of the series to the tune of $550 million worldwide. A sequel has been germinating for some time already, although, as Banderas points out, “the process for these movies are way longer than people think”."They are restructuring the script now," he reveals. "We started… but that’s the process. A lot of people participate in the creation of the script and the story and the narrative, everything. And they include you! »

Film Review: 'The SpongeBob Movie'

27 March 2015 1:29 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Over a decade on from its first big screen outing, enduringly popular cartoon character Spongebob SquarePants returns to cinemas. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) is a prequel to the previous film and sees SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) and his friends on the trail of the person behind the theft of their Krabby Patty secret formula, somehow connected to the film's narrator, Burger Beard The Pirate (Antonio Banderas). In an era saturated by computer animation, it is refreshing to see directors Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After) and Paul Tibbitt (a writer for the original series) not only stick to hand drawn animation for the majority of the film, but also keep the anarchic feel of the TV show.

Oren Shai, Jocelin Donahue, Aj Bowen and Izabella Miko Talk The Frontier at SXSW

26 March 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s tough enough directing a first feature, but Oren Shai decided to go all out and make his first feature a pulpy Western set in the 1970s. The story goes down at a secluded motel/diner on a desert road. Jocelin Donahue plays Laine, a young woman on the run from the law who pulls up to the motel looking for a little refuge before continuing on her way. However, while laying low, she overhears that some of the other guests could have big money coming their way, money that could make all the difference to Laine given her current situation. While in Austin for The Frontier's SXSW world premiere, Shai, Donahue, Aj Bowen and Izabella Miko all sat down to discuss their experience making the film. We ran through how Shai got the green light to make an especially ambitious first feature, the audition/offer process, delivering exposition through subtext, »

Don't worry everyone, there will be two interviews from the Empire Podcast team unleashed on the world this week - it's just that one, with Antonio Banderas, comes in its own special episode (up soon), while Kenneth Branagh is allowed to be king of the regular pod without any competition.So, in short, Sir Ken is the guest on this week's show, a show where one of us nearly dies, and there's a good deal of thought given to ways that Tom Cruise could die, depending on what happens with the next Mission Impossible movie.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water review: Has a streak of madness

26 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Paul Tibbitt; Screenwriters: Glenn Berger, Jonathan Aibel; Starring: Antonio Banderas, Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Rodger Bumpass, Mr Lawrence; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: U

There's a streak of madness running through The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, elevating it above the usual run-of-the-mill animated fare into something that, at its best, is inspired lunacy. Here's an animation/live-action hybrid that features Antonio Banderas as a pirate-turned-food truck chef, civil war over a burger recipe, the apocalypse, and Matt Berry voicing an intergalactic space dolphin. Suffice to say, this is probably the maddest family film you'll see all year.

Primarily the star of short-form cartoons (episodes are either 11 or 22 minutes long) on Nickelodeon, SpongeBob took a stab at big screen stardom in 2004, but the resulting film didn't quite manage to power the character on to bigger things (despite a starry cast featuring Scarlett Johansson, Alec Baldwin and, er, David Hasselhoff »

Movie Review – The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015)

25 March 2015 4:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, 2015.

Directed by Paul Tibbitt.

Starring Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Rodger Bumpass, Mr. Lawrence, Jill Talley, Dee Bradley Baker, Clancy Brown, Carolyn Lawrence, Mary Jo Catlett and Antonio Banderas.

Synopsis:

When a diabolical pirate above the sea steals the secret Krabby Patty formula, SpongeBob and his nemesis Plankton must team up in order to get it back.

“Sponge Out of Water”: a suitably teasing sub-titled for the second (and hugely overdue) sequel to 2004’s SpongeBob Squarepants Movie, which promises more nautical shenanigans in and around Bikini Bottom with the titular sponge and his marine friends. Why it took so long for a sequel to appear in the first place despite its $140 million worldwide gross is a mystery the size of SpongeBob’s crabby-patty recipe, but back into the ocean we go, though be sure to take some ibuprofen with you, as Sponge Out »

Sarah Jessica Parker turns 50: 6 best roles from Sex and the City star

25 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It is a momentous day for Sex and the City fans around the world as Sarah Jessica Parker celebrates her 50th birthday. While the role of Carrie Bradshaw made Sarah a fashion icon and a superstar, she has starred in a wide variety of films and television shows over four decades. Parker began her career as a child star on the stage in Annie, and has gone on to become an enduring fixture in pop culture.

Her movie career was launched with supporting roles in '80s teen comedies Footloose and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, but soon she grew into a leading lady with memorable roles in a string of early 1990s comedies. Parker might be best known for romantic comedies these days, but over the last 30 years she's impressed critics in roles as diverse a mystical witch, an egotistical talkshow host and the embodiment of a single woman of the 2000s. »

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water review

24 March 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

You will see few less sane blockbuster movies than SpongeBob Squarepants' sequel...

Back in 2011, lots of people were surprised by Rango, a surreal pastiche of Chinatown through the lens of the Western genre which put Paramount's animation division on the map. Just in case you haven't seen it and we haven't stressed this enough in the last four years, then you really ought to check it out.

For those of us waiting for something as good or better from the studio, its latest effort, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water may leave you wanting. Then again, if you're a fan of the series on which it's based, it's perfectly in keeping with the surrealism we've come to expect.

Counter to what the marketing would have you believe, it's not a CG/live action hybrid, or at least not until the last 20 minutes of the film. The rest is rendered »

The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water Review

22 March 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Paul Tibbitt.

Cast: Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Rodger Bumpass, Mr. Lawrence, Clancy Brown, Carolyn Lawrence.

Certificate: U

Running Time: 92 minutes

Synopsis: Spongebob (Kenny) must work along side his enemy, Plankyon (Mr. Lawrence), to discover the whereabouts of the missing formula for Krabby Patties.

I’ve never liked Spongebob Squarepants. I’ve only ever found it irritating, with the surreal humour paling in comparison to other such bizarre shows. It almost seems as though it’s trying too hard. That being said, I laughed quite a lot at the trailer for The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water, so I went in fully expecting to enjoy the film. I certainly did enjoy it, but the trailer gave us all the best bits.

Taking the trailer and title into consideration, the film is somewhat deceptive. The out of water segments make up around 10 minutes of the actual film, and it just the climax to the story. »
