“Futurama” star John Dimaggio is starring in a brand new film coming to theaters in 2015. The film, “The Shoot,” gives a humorous and dark take on the music and fashion industries. Take a look at the synopsis: “Written and directed by John Adams and Toby Poser, the film is a dark, sometimes funny comment on American dreams and nightmares in the rock and roll and fashion industries. In the pic, a fashion shoot in the desert goes horribly wrong when two hard up rockers try their luck at robbing it.” The film seems to be a promising thriller/horror with dark comedy elements, so if you’re into off-kilter films, take [ Read More ]
Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo are all great characters, but Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico (John Dimaggio) and Private (James Patrick Stuart) definitely stole some of their thunder in the Madagascar films. In fact, the penguins are so popular, they’ve got their very own Nickelodeon TV show and, come November 26th, they’ll have their own feature film as well. Penguins of Madagascar pits our heroes against someone from their past, Dave the octopus. With the help of the undercover inter-species task force, The North Wind, the penguins must thwart Dave’s plan to take over the world. Immediately after the film’s New York Comic-Con panel, I got the chance to sit down with directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith to discuss making the decision to give the penguins their own movie, how the animated filmmaking process »

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.”

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:

During last year's Comic-Con, it was revealed that "The Simpsons" will do a cross-over episode with "Futurama." That episode will air on November 9th, and thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have our first look at that episode. Check it out below. Matt Groening created both shows, which is why "The Simpsons" and "Futurama" referenced each other all the time. Here's what we know about the cross-over episode: * The opening credits will feature a tagline: "a show out of ideas teams up with a show out of episodes" * The episode will bring back "Futurama" voice actors Billy West, John Dimaggio, Katey Sagal, Lauren Tom, Phil Lamarr, Tress MacNeille, and Maurice Lamarche * The plot will be a Terminator-esque story that involves Bart blowing his nose on a sandwich that he places in a time capsule.

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 »

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.

Coinciding with its DVD and Blu-ray release today, Warner Bros. has dropped two new clips from the DC Universe Animated Original Movie Batman: Assault on Arkham featuring The Suicide Squad; check them out after the official synopsis, and read our review of the film here…
“Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains — code named the Suicide Squad — and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by the Riddler. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the Squad members (Harley Quinn) frees the Joker, who is intent on blowing up Arkham Asylum and Gotham City. Batman must use his super hero wits and strength to thwart the wicked plans of the Joker and the Suicide Squad.”

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).

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.

Batman: Assault on Arkham, 2014.
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 »

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 »

The clip features more of the comical covert birds Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private as they team up to take down Dr Octavius Brine, voiced by John Malkovich.
The force also includes the seal Short Fuse (Ken Jeong), an explosives expert; snow owl Eva (Annet Mahendru), an intelligence analyst; and hulking Norwegian bear Corporal (Peter Stormare), who constantly wants to embrace his four new bird friends.
Penguins of Madagascar will open in the Us on November 26 and in the UK on December 5. »
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. "Penguins of Madagascar" hits theaters on »

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.
