First look at The Simpsons / Futurama crossover episode ‘Simpsorama’

9 September 2014 1:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Simpsons and Family Guy are set to share the small screen this month with the Family Guy season premiere ‘The Simpsons Guy’, but that’s not the only crossover in store for the inhabitants of Springfield in their 25th anniversary year. In November, The Simpsons will also team up with Futurama’s Fry, Leela, Bender and company for ‘Simpsorama’, and Entertainment Weekly has the first still…

‘Simpsorama’ will feature Futurama cast members Billy West, John Dimaggio, Katey Sagal, Lauren Tom, Phil Lamarr, Tress MacNeille, and Maurice Lamarche and tells a “complex, Terminator-esque story that involves Bart blowing his nose on a sandwich that he places in a time capsule. When that mixes with Milhouse’s rabbit’s foot and some radioactive ooze, it creates a global catastrophe in the future, prompting Bender to travel back in time to kill Bart and prevent this mega-mess.”

‘Simpsorama’ will air on November 9th. »

7 September 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first photo and details are out from "Simpsorama," an upcoming episode of "The Simpsons" featuring the various characters from creator Matt Groening's other famous and now finished animated series "Futurama".

"Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean tells EW: "We're always looking for things that are compatible with us, and I thought, ‘Well, what's more compatible?' We do a joke, actually, about how similar Bender and Homer look. Like, they just erased Homer's hair."

The crossover episode will include all the core members of the "Futurama" cast: Billy West, John Dimaggio, Katey Sagal, Lauren Tom, Phil Lamarr, Tress MacNeille, and Maurice Lamarch. There's also a storyline:

First Image of The Simpsons and Futurama Crossover

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Homer and Bender face-off in the first image that has been released for The Simpsons and Futurama crossover episode. Futurama was cancelled last year, but it will be brought back to life at least one more time.

Creator of both series, Matt Groening, had this to say in a statement to EW, "That was a really tough one to negotiate, because I had to talk to myself." Simpsons executive producer Al Jean added, 

"They were going off the air, so I thought people would really love it if we had one more chance to see those characters. We’re always looking for things that are compatible with us, and I thought, ‘Well, what’s more compatible?’ We do a joke, actually, about how similar Bender and Homer look. Like, they just erased Homer’s hair."

According to the report, the episode is called "Simpsorama," and it's a "Terminator-esque story that »

Good—no, great—news, everyone: Springfield will be the site of another crossover episode besides the invasion of the Griffins from Family Guy when the Simpsons encounter a familiar pack of now-homeless space adventurers. Futurama, the 31st-century animated comedy that was canceled (again) last year, will return to life—or at least Fry, Leela & Co. will—in a special episode of The Simpsons airing Nov. 9.

“That was a really tough one to negotiate, because I had to talk to myself,” says Matt Groening, creator of, well, both shows.“Simpsorama” is taglined in the opening credits as “a show out of »

10 Voice Actors You Probably Didn’t Notice In Live Action Roles

24 August 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The world loves actors — we follow them on Twitter, tune in to award shows to watch them out of character, and follow their everyday lives in magazines and on the Internet — but not all actors get the attention they deserve. Take voice actors for example, and we’re not talking about the likes of Tom Hanks in Toy Story or Nicolas Cage in The Croods, who are hired primarily for their star appeal more so than their ability to bring a character to life. No, we’re talking about actual full time voice actors, most of whom have voiced a character in the animated shows and video games we watch and play on a daily basis, and who most of us aren’t really aware of.

When we hear Woody in Toy Story, we hear Tom Hanks (no matter how good his performance is), it’s obvious that it’s Seth Rogen as B. »

Suicide Mission: Batman Faces an Assault on Arkham in New Animated Movie

12 August 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

As the Riddler might ask: When is a Batman movie not a Batman movie? Answer: When it stars the Suicide Squad!

The popular team of DC Comics supervillains unleashes its special brand of (in)justice in Batman: Assault on Arkham, the latest DC Universe original movie from Warner Bros Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Government operative Amanda Waller (voiced by Cch Pounder) assembles a dirty half-dozen — master hit man Deadshot (Neal McDonagh), ice queen Killer Frost (Jennifer Hale), Australian rogue Captain Boomerang (Greg Ellis), bloodthirsty King Shark (John Dimaggio), vigilante assassin Black Spider (Giancarlo Esposito) and criminally insane Harley Quinn (Hynden Walch) — to break into the world's scariest asylum and retrieve a flash drive stolen by the Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler).

Review: Batman: Assault on Arkham is Bad.....Bad Ass!

11 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

You can pre-order this film on Amazon.com

Yeah, I said it. I'm obviously a lifelong Batman fan, especially in the realm of animation.  I'm very critical of the Dc Universe films..they're very hit and miss for  me.   This film is without a doubt my favorite of the Dc Universe films to date.  Assault on Arkham has it all..violence, sex, humor and dark twisted enjoyment for all.  This one is what 'The Losers' should have been.  Its like the Expendables with Dc Comics villains.  Top all that off with tons of villain cameos and Kevin Conroy reprising Batman, the role that he owns, and you have an absolute winner.

This review will contain some, but not all, Spoilers!  I'm not going to give you the plot points, but don't read if you don't want a few things revealed, I don't wanna have to call you a waaaaahmbulance.

Movie Review – Batman: Assault on Arkham (2014)

10 August 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman: Assault on Arkham, 2014.

Directed by Jay Oliva and Ethan Spaulding.

Featuring the voice talents of Kevin Conroy, Neal McDonough, Troy Baker, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cch Pounder, John Dimaggio, Jennifer Hale, Hynden Walch, and Giancarlo Esposito.

Synopsis:

Based on the hit video game series, Batman must find a bomb planted by the Joker while dealing with a mysterious team of villains called, The Suicide Squad.

I’ve been on record before as a fan of the DC Animated offerings. Marvel seems to have perfected the theatrical experience while DC has managed to successfully parlay their characters into television, animation, and video games. The newest animated movie from DC takes a cue from the extremely successful Arkham video game series to deliver a fairly good offering in Batman: Assault on Arkham.

Fans of the video games will be happy to see this rich world given a little more exploration, though to »

Review: Batman: Assault on Arkham

10 August 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Based on a video game, Batman: Arkham, which I do not play, I came into Batman: Assault on Arkham, without any particular predisposition. As the first editor of the Suicide Squad, I was intrigued to see how they would operate. As I feared, screenwriter Heath Corson totally misused the team in this violent, pointless direct-to-animated mess which is unleashed on Tuesday.

Amanda Waller (Cch Pounder) played within the gray areas of the DC Universe, picking damaged heroes and villains, as needed for missions. She made sure there was a field leader to keep them in line, and offered the heroes something they wanted and the villains a chance at clearing their records. Here, she collects a motley assortment of villains without a real rationale for each, putting them together for a mission that makes little sense. The silly MacGuffin here is that the Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler) has stolen »

Benedict Cumberbatch fans will howl for this new 'Penguins of Madagascar' trailer

6 August 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Benedict Cumberbatch's role in "Penguins of Madagascar" may be voice only, but the latest trailer for the forthcoming animated spinoff will probably make his fans howl anyway. The "Sherlock" star's perfect English diction is a sound for sore ears in the new spot for the "Madagascar" spinoff, in which Cumberbatch plays Classified, a wolf who serves as the leader of an "inter-species task force" dedicated to saving the lives of helpless animals. In addition to returning voice stars Tom McGrath (Skipper), Chris Miller (Kowalski), John Dimaggio (Rico) and Christopher Knights (Private), the film also features the aural talents of John Malkovich as villainous octopus Dr. Octavius Brine (a.k.a Dave). Will Cumberbatch fanatics show up for the film even though the actor himself never appears on screen? Check out the trailer below, then let us know what you think in the comments.

Sdcc Interview: Kevin Conroy, star of Batman: Assault on Arkham

6 August 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

david j. moore chats with legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy at the San Diego Comic-Con International…

Every animated character has a voice actor behind it, giving it life. Actor Kevin Conroy has been associated with the Batman character since he voiced him over the course of 86 episodes on Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995), and through many spin-off series’ and feature films that have followed like The New Batman Adventures (1997-1999, 24 episodes), Batman Beyond (1999-2001, 48 episodes), Justice League (2001-2006, 55 episodes) and the video games Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham City (2011). Warner Bros. has continued using Conroy as Batman’s (and Bruce Wayne’s) voice in direct-to-video feature films over the years, and in the new film Batman: Assault on Arkham, Conroy once again lends his distinctive baritone to give the Caped Crusader that familiar voice fans have comfortably accepted and embraced.
