New trailer for The Little Prince

23 April 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An international trailer has been released for director Mark Osborne’s The Little Prince, an animated adaption of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic children’s novel. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. From Mark Osborne, Academy Award® nominated director of Kung Fu Panda, comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy), who’s being prepared by her mother (Rachel McAdams) for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator (Jeff Bridges). The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince (newcomer Riley Osborne). It’s here that »

Watch The Delightful New Trailer For The Little Prince

22 April 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Coming form King Fu Panda director Mark Osborne, 3D animation/stop motion mix The Little Prince offers a modern twist on the classic children's book by Antoine Saint-Exupery, telling the tale of a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert, and meets a young Prince who has travelled from his home on a distant asteroid on a journey to meet people from other planets and hear their stories. Boasting an amazing voice cast, including Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Ricky Gervais, Marion Cotillard, Paul Rudd, Benico del Toro, and James Franco, this looks absolutely beautiful, with the promise of an incredibly emotional story at its core. I will admit to feeling a bit teary eyed as the trailer reached its joyous crescendo. This will definitely be one to delight adults and kids alike. There is no Irish or American release date as of yet, but it is expected to come our »

New ‘Little Prince’ trailer previews a wonderfully imaginative addition to Cannes

21 April 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Need a little animation fix between your Cannes films? It seems like this could be the answer.

The new, international trailer for The Little Prince was released on Monday and it offers a preview at one of the year’s more imaginative animated films. The movie is set to premiere out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

Featuring the voice talents of Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, and Mackenzie Foy, The Little Prince follows the story of a pilot crashes in the desert and meets a little boy from a distant planet. The story was first published in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

The latest trailer dives more into the story than the first one and seems to illustrate the imagination that is going into this adaptation. It seems to be blending both digital CGI with some other animation styles such as stop-motion, »

Watch International English-Language Trailer For The Little Prince

21 April 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most well-loved children’s stories of all-time is bound for the big screen. The latest adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella The Little Prince hails from King Fu Panda helmer Mark Osborne, who takes a few liberties with the popular source material for his vision. But to be frank, with trailers this captivating and visually adventurous, it’s unlikely anyone will have cause for complaint.

The Little Prince tells the story of an Aviator whose plane crashes in the desert, which is where he meets the titular prince from an asteroid-sized planet whose day trip to Earth is part of his exploration of the galaxy. One of those aforementioned changes tying together the movie is a wraparound story that’s made apparent in this new preview. Featuring a young girl and her next-door neighbor, it’s a slight adjustment that shouldn’t sully the gloriousness of the stop-motion animation on display. »

Set as of Thursday to make its premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Out of Competition, a new international trailer for Mark Osbourne's (Kung Fu Panda) film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery beloved children's book The Little Prince has arrived. While this isn't the first teaser for the film, it is the first time English-speaking audiences can see the American voice cast. And boy, did they go all out with this voice cast, with Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Albert Brooks, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Bud Cort, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti lending their pipes to the animated picture. While it's hard to shake off The Lorax vibes created by a newly created child protagonist and her new old friend, there does seem to be more love and charm here than that film, not to mention how beautiful the animation is during the actual Little Prince moments. »

Ricky Gervais Slams Woman For Her Smiling Photo With a Dead Giraffe

16 April 2015 6:39 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ricky Gervais took to Twitter on April 13 to voice his disgust with hunter Rebecca Francis for taking a photo of herself with a dead giraffe that she'd killed. "What must've happened to you in your life to make you want to kill a beautiful animal & then lie next to it smiling?" Ricky wrote to his 7.1 million followers. He also reposted the photo on Facebook. Rebecca, who won the reality TV show Extreme Huntress in 2010, is believed to have taken the photo in Africa the same year she appeared on the show. While she has yet to respond directly to Ricky's comments, Rebecca defended her actions in a statement to HuntingLife.com, saying the giraffe "had been kicked out of the herd by a younger and stronger bull. He was past his breeding years and very close to death. I chose to honor his life by providing others with his uses »

Ricky Gervais Slams the Hunter Who Killed a Giraffe and Smiled Next to Its Corpse

15 April 2015 3:08 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This is no laughing matter for Ricky Gervais. The funnyman took a very serious turn when he came across something that truly disturbed him—a controversial photo of hunter Rebecca Francis posing next to her kill. To be more specific, it's a picture of Rebecca Francis smiling next to the corpse of a giraffe that she killed. Yeah, that didn't sit well with a lot of people, who began targeting the hunter and even sending death threats. Gervais didn't go that far, of course, but he did make it very clear that what she did was not Ok with him. The 53-year-old comedian reposted the picture on Facebook and wrote, "What must've happened to you in your life to make you want to kill a »

Ricky Gervais Defends Trevor Noah at Emmys Screening for 'Derek', Wants Your Negative Comments

15 April 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When Ricky Gervais walked onto the stage carrying a beer — which is almost expected of him after hosting the Golden Globes three times with a drink in hand  — it was clear this wasn't going to be just another ego-stroking Q&A. Sitting before a large crowd at Paramount Studios in Hollywood , Ricky Gervais took questions first from Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of "Arrested Development," for nearly an hour before kindly responding to more from members of the TV Academy. Among the many topics covered in the offbeat conversation, the discussion soon worked its way over to recent events in "offensive" comedy. It started when Hurwitz made a comment about how there's more policing of jokes now than ever before, ending with "you can't say anthing." “Well, you can and you should," Gervais said. "I think people gotta know that just because you’re offended, doesn’t mean you’re right. »

The Callow Way – The Death Of The Theatrical Premiere?

12 April 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks at the changing face of how films are released…

This week, two unrelated stories seemed like they could herald the end of films debuting in the cinema. First there was the news that Ricky Gervais’s new film, Special Correspondents, his third as director, would get its premiere on Netflix. This was closely followed by the news that Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman and the film that opened last years Cannes Film Festival, would not be released in Us cinemas, but would instead be shown on Lifetime, the channel best known for such classics as The Craigslist Killer and Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal.

Netflix have begun to revolutionise how we watch TV shows, and are gaining real success with producing their own shows, but moving into feature films seems like it could be a game changer; we still expect our movies to »
