Eligible Films in Oscars Animated Feature Race

3 November 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every year the field seems to get bigger for the Oscar animated feature race. Here’s a run-down of eligible features.

The Angry Birds Movie

Directors: Clay Kaytis, Fergal Reilly

Voices: Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride

Studio: Sony Pictures Imageworks

Distributor: Columbia Pictures

If “Angry Birds” gets nominated, it will make history, becoming the first Oscar contender derived from a mobile gaming app. To its credit, the bright, high-energy CG toon struck many as far more delightful than such a provenance would suggest.

April and the Extraordinary World

Directors: Christian Desmares, Franck Ekinci

Voices: Angela Galuppo, Susan Sarandon, J.K. Simmons, Paul Giamatti

Studio: Je Suis Bien Content

Distributor: GKids

Inspired by the steampunk-esque graphic novel by Jacques Tardi, this female-driven adventure story takes place in a world without electricity. One of the few hand-drawn movies in the mix, and the most classical.

Finding Dory

Directors: Andrew Stanton, Andrew MacLane

Voices: Ellen DeGeneres, »

‘Persepolis’ Producers Offer French Steampunk Actioner In ‘April and the Extraordinary World’ Trailer

21 March 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since premiering last summer, the animated picture April and the Extraordinary World has earned fine notices, being praised for both the beauty of its animation and unique stylings of its world. It was only a matter of time before this ’40s-era, Paris-set steampunk tale came to the U.S., and GKids are supporting its English-language overhaul with a release this Friday — just after a domestic trailer arrives.

There are no signs of its original French cast — which included Marion Cotillard, Olivier Gourmet, and Jean Rochefort — but what we get isn’t so bad: J.K. Simmons, Tony Hale, Susan Sarandon, and Paul Giamatti have stepped in, while Angela Galuppo takes the lead role. This preview will give some sense of its narrative and visual approach, two components that reviewers noted as being in harmony with one another.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Snowtime!’

28 January 2016 8:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

War is an extremely mild form of hell in “Snowtime!,” an animated adaptation of the French-Canadian family film “The Dog Who Stopped the War,” which has been a seasonal mainstay for Canuck children for more than 30 years. Set in a mountain idyll where kids frolic outdoors all day while their (largely unseen) parents are home with hot chocolate at the ready, the pic concerns a two-week snowball fight that doubles as an allegory for human conflict. Covering the emotional spectrum between dog farts on one end and tragedy on the other reps a tonal challenge that “Showtime!” can’t pull off, despite a gentler touch than most kiddie fare of its kind. Passing through Sundance en route to a Stateside theatrical run next month, the film will play fine to the very young, but it’s far too anemic to trigger a box office avalanche. 

Described as “the greatest village »
