Paramount Animation has confirmed its next five films - including SpongeBob Squarepants 3...
Set up in the aftermath of the release of the wonderful Rango, Paramount Animation has been busily working away on a slate of projects for some time now. SpongeBob Squarepants: Sponge Out Of Water has already given the fledgling studio a sizeable hit earlier this year (and it remains the most joyously bonkers film of 2015). But now, we know what its next five films are going to be.
Here's what's coming up.
March 18th 2016
The Little Prince, based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book, is first. It's directed by Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda), with the likes of Mackenzie Foy, Ricky Gervais, Benicio del Toro, James Franco, Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti on voicing duties.

Who said Marvel and DC (read: Disney and Warner Bros.) had to have all the fun when it comes to mapping out film slates? In laying out plans for its animation division, Paramount has nailed down release dates for a number of in-development features, including The Little Prince, SpongeBob Squarepants 3, Monster Trucks and Amusement Park.
Launching first will be The Little Prince, which is now pegged for a theatrical release on March 18, 2016. Directed by Kung Fu Panda helmer Mark Osborne, the animated picture is an adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic book, and it’s spent the past few months or so assembling a star-studded line-up. An international voice cast through and through, Osborne’s feature will encompass Mackenzie Foy, Jeff Bridges, Riley Osborne, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, Albert Brooks, and Bud Cort.

Amy Schumer's Trainwreck had no problem gathering dozens of Hollywood A-listers to make appearances throughout the film. With so many stars like Daniel Radcliffe, Matthew Broderick and John Cena appearing in cameos, Ryan Phillippe got left behind with his clip never making it in the movie. Although we're sad that the hunk's pretty face never graced theater screens, his scene has finally been revealed thanks to Buzzfeed and it has us bending over laughing. The Secrets and Lies actor plays himself in the clip as he walks into Schumer's office and slyly suggests they have a foursome. His irresistible smile leaves Amy stunned and we don't blame her. Although this cameo is »
After Bette Midler tweeted that the only thing holding up a possible Hocus Pocus sequel was a lack of virgins, fellow co-star Kathy Najimy chimed in, too. Well, what does the third sister witch, Sarah Jessica Parker, think? “I think it’s just on the World Wide Web,” Parker told Vulture at the Broadway opening of Sylvia, which stars her husband, Matthew Broderick. “We’ve all been exchanging funny, not-reality-based messages to one another. [That’s] as much as I know,” she shrugged. Maybe someone will wave a magic wand and make the sequel happen. We would run amok! Amok amok amok amok! »

Now is the era of the versus movie, and not just in terms of those God-awful SyFy movies where increasingly improbable monster animals put their dukes up. In 2016 alone, Batman will fight Superman, Captain America will fight Iron Man, villains will fight other villains in Suicide Squad, and now, thanks to a fan-baiting deal between studios, the granddaddies of the genre are about to get a new movie.
Having reinvented Godzilla in a way that just about pushed memories of Matthew Broderick and his iguana out of memory, Warner Bros and Legendary are set to kick off a giant monster shared universe, with Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla 2 and Godzilla vs Kong all officially on the way.
The new shared universe will reveal the mythology bringing Godzilla and Legendary’s King Kong together, as well as more giant super-species as Monarch – the company that uncovered Godzilla in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film, »

A 32-year-old movie will be reinvented in a slick new format. Interlude, a media company known for creating interactive videos, has announced a partnership with MGM through which it will create an interactive version of the hit 1983 film WarGames.
WarGames, which starred Matthew Broderick as a young hacker who inadvertently hacks into a Us military supercomputer and narrowly avoids starting World War III, has persisted as a 80s classic, and Interlude's version of the film will allow viewers to affect the narrative through their choices. The result will likely be similar to the "choose-your-own-adventure" video Interlude made for MTV's Scream--a hybrid short film/video game that excites viewers and pulls them into the action.
For Interlude, the WarGames project will be yet another opportunity to show off its proprietary technology. MGM, on the other hand, will generate renewed excitement for a title that can easily stir up plenty of nostalgic feelings. »

The 1983 hacker film WarGames will soon be rebooted as an interactive video with new characters and plots, allowing viewers to decide where the action will go. Variety reports that the "digital remake" will come out early next year.
The original movie took place during the Cold War and revolved around a young hacker, played by Matthew Broderick, who stumbles into the U.S. government's War Operation Plan Response supercomputer, which calculated the probability of nuclear winter. Thinking it's a game, he runs a simulation and ostensibly threatens the world with »
Watch: Video Games Are The Latest Craze In This Vintage Behind-The-Scenes Look At 'WarGames' A reboot of the 1980's sci-fi film "WarGames" has been in the works for some time, garnering a mixed reaction from fans who either want to see a modern iteration of the property or want the original film left alone. However, the reboot just announced by MGM will not be a feature film, but a short interactive film that allows viewers to make decisions that affect the story. The original film starred Matthew Broderick as a young computer hacker who accidentally gets access to a top secret government supercomputer. He thinks he's gotten access to a new video game, but in fact the actions in the "game" he's playing have real life consequences that could lead the country into a nuclear war. The reboot will be created by Interlude, an interactive media and technology »

Shall we play a game?
“WarGames,” the iconic ’80s hacker drama starring Matthew Broderick, Alley Sheedy and Dabney Coleman, will be reimagined as an interactive video with all-new characters and storylines — in which you, the viewer, decide the outcome.
The companies describe the “WarGames” interactive video as a modern take on the original, melding the interactive elements of a video game with the cinematic experience of a movie. The plot of the 2.0 version has yet to be sketched out, but execs said that there will be multiple user-controlled outcomes that will reward repeat viewings.
“We are very excited to be working with Interlude on this audience-driven interactive story experience,” said Roma Khanna, MGM Television Group and Digital president. “‘WarGames’ is the perfect MGM title for this innovative technology. »

MGM has announced that it's teaming with Interlude to revive its classic 1983 thriller "WarGames" as a 'kind of video game', or more specifically an interactive digital short.
The original film was nominated for three Oscars, including Best Screenplay, and followed a young hacker (Matthew Broderick) who manages to break into a U.S. military supercomputer and starts playing what he thinks is a game. In actuality, it’s a nuclear war simulation which could spark World War III.
The new project will feature all-new characters and storylines, and the aim is to "combine the narrative of a compelling movie with the responsiveness of a great game" and so viewers will be able to determine the outcome, which will make for a slightly different narrative every time you watch it.
The plan for the digital short is to experiment with a new form of storytelling. How this works isn't clear - »

When the Los Angeles Dodgers kick off their postseason push Oct. 9 at Dodger Stadium, not everyone in showbiz will be rooting for them. For every Bryan Cranston, George Lopez and Larry King loyal to Hollywood's home team, there is a Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin James and Matthew Broderick sporting orange and blue — the colors of the New York Mets, the Dodgers' National League Division Series opponents. The showdown is a rematch of an Nlds matchup in 2006,

While the John Hughes comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off may be a classic, it’s hardly worthy of getting a video game adaptation. However, that hasn’t stopped the folks at CineFix from giving the comedy starring Matthew Broderick the 8-Bit Cinema treatment, turning the high school hooky shenanigans into an old school video game. Ferris Bueller’s […]
