News Bits: Blackhat, Eight, Family, Sons

23 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Blackhat

Legendary's panel at Comic Con yesterday confirmed that Michael Mann's new thriller previously titled "Cyber" has scored a new name - "Blackhat". The Chris Hemsworth-led film is scheduled for a mid-January release but will score a limited theatrical run in late December to potentially qualify for awards consideration.

Footage was screened showcasing a globe-hopping thriller, but in the same grainy style of Mann's films like "Collateral" and "Miami Vice". Hemsworth plays a convict who is released to team up with a group of Americans and Chinese in a hunt for a high-level cybercrime network operating around the world. The action runs from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta.

Homer and Peter Battle, Bart and Stewie Bond in Simpsons-Family Guy Crossover Episode Sneak Peek: Watch!

27 July 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Following the first teaser about two months ago, we're finally getting more of a glimpse at the highly anticipated Simpsons-Family Guy crossover episode. In the nearly 5-minute clip, the Griffins find themselves stuck in Springfield, where Bart introduces Stewie to his prank phone calls to Moe's Tavern (Stewie sort of ruins the fun), Homer bonds over his doughnuts (and a daydream sequence) with Peter, and Stewie learns how to ride a skateboard with Bart. While at first it seems like Homer and Peter are in the midst of developing a beautiful friendship, that soon goes south when Peter insists that Homer try his Peter's Patriot Ale. "This is a lousy rip-off of Duff," Homer »

Watch 5 Minutes of the ‘Simpsons’-’Family Guy’ Crossover

27 July 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comic-Con gave fans a sneak peek at the highly-anticipated “The Simpsons”-”Family Guy” crossover episode on Saturday, and now the five-minute trailer has hit the web, giving everyone a look at the Simpsons and Griffin families colliding.

The episode, airing Sept. 28 and fittingly titled “The Simpsons Guy,” has the Griffins accidentally ending up in Springfield, where Peter Griffin makes the acute observation that “everyone around here looks like they have hepatitis.”

They meet up with the Simpsons, and Homer and Peter unsurprisingly bond over donuts while Bart introduces Stewie to pranks calls (to the horror of Stewie’s prank call victims). However, Homer and Peter get into an argument over Pawtucket Patriot Ale and Duff Beer and it quickly escalates, threatening the new-found friendship.

Throwing more to the animation fans, Bob of “Bob’s Burgers” also makes an appearance. The “Family Guy” panel at Comic-Con teased even more of the upcoming season, »

27 July 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Later this year, Fox’s two premiere animated comedies The Simpsons and Family Guy are set to cross over for a special Family Guy episode entitled ‘The Simpsons Guy’, and yesterday a five minute preview was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con, and we’ve got it for you right here…

“Peter and the Griffins get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson, who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The families get along famously: Stewie becomes obsessed with Bart and his old-fashioned pranks; Lisa takes Meg under her wing and is determined to find something – anything – at which she excels; Marge and Lois ditch housework for a little bonding; and Peter and Homer fight over the best beer in town – Pawtucket vs Duff.”

The Simpsons Guy’ is set to premiere on Fox on September 28th in the States. »

26 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that Family Guy will kick off Season 13 with a special one-hour premiere that crosses over with The Simpsons, in an episode entitled "The Simpsons Guy". During the Family Guy Comic-Con panel earlier today, Fox debuted a special five-minute clip that shows the Griffin clan in Family Guy somehow getting stranded in Springfield, where they meet The Simpsons.

Watch as these two Animation Domination hits share the screen together, along with a few surprise cameos from Cleveland Brown (Mike Henry) and Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) from Bob's Burgers, then read on for more details that were revealed during the panel.

Family Guy producers Steve Callaghan and Richard Appel also teased a special Christmas episode, where Jesus returns and the guys all discover that he's a virgin, as they go on a quest to get him laid. Voice actor Mike Henry acknowledged the sacrilegious nature of the episode. »

Justin Bieber may have killed Brian and other 'Family Guy' Comic-Con highlights

26 July 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Family Guy" hit Ballroom 20 on Saturday (July 26) for its annual Comic-Con panel, an event with kinda tends to ebb and flow in hype based on whether or not Seth MacFarlane is there to mock question-askers.  This was a second consecutive Seth MacFarlane-free year. Last year he was working on "A Million Ways To Die In The West." This year, his absence was unexplained [on the "Family Guy" panel, but it came up at "American Dad" subsequently] and raises the possibility that Seth MacFarlane has just become too big for making fun of questioners at Comic-Con. Fortunately, in lieu of Seth MacFarlane, the "Family Guy" team arrived with a longer clip reel for the season's hour-long "The Simpsons Guy" crossover event, which will air on September 28. At TCA press tour last week we got a very brief sizzle reel that included jokes about the Springfield location ("I can't imagine we're allowed to »

Comic-Con: ‘Family Guy’ Producers on ‘Simpsons’ Crossover and Movie Plans

26 July 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Family Guy’s” Comic-Con panel kicked off with a preview of the show’s much-anticipated Sept. 28 crossover with “The Simpsons,” in which the Griffin family visits Springfield.

Among the highlights from the sneak peek: Homer and Peter eat donuts and realize they have a lot in common; Bart and Stewie prank call Moe’s Tavern (and it escalates quickly); Peter attempts to get Homer to set up a cutaway gag; Bob from “Bob’s Burgers” makes an appearance; Stewie and Bart go skateboarding; Homer and Peter discover some unnerving similarities between Duff and Pawtucket Patriot Ale; and the duo get into a predictably destructive fight across Springfield’s most notable locations.

“Simpsons” creator Matt Groening also appeared during the panel to ask for the producers’ advice on how a young, struggling animator could break into the business, and told them to kiss his ass a little more.

10 Cartoon Voices That Are Actually Impressions of Other Actors

24 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In music there are only 12 notes, so it's no wonder so many songs sound the same. But what about someone's voice? The way someone speaks is not bound by any kind of scale or music theory, rather it's the sum a person’s upbringing, their physicality, and their personality. So why do so many cartoon characters sound so eerily familiar? In this list we highlight 10 cartoon characters whose voices (and often their likenesses) are based on other actors. We also mention 5 other cartoon voices that are impressions in the bonus sections of related entries. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, these actors have been thoroughly praised by some of the best.

Watch: Trailer For Sci-Fi Spoof 'Space Station 76' Starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler And Matt Bomer

22 July 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The genre comedy/spoof is a tricky one to pull off. Hell, just ask Seth MacFarlane, who tried it with "A Million Ways To Die In The West." Needless to say, Jack Plotnick has his work cut out for him with "Space Station 76," but the first trailer reveals something whose ambitions are modest, while keeping a sharp eye on the jokes. Starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer and Marisa Coughlan, the film is set in a '70s version of what the future would look like, and follows a group of humans and robots, living in a space station, who find things turned upside down the arrival of new Assistant Captain. This is more carefully crafted than you might expect, with some pretty great set and costume design to be found within. And it looks like it's actually funny as well, which is the top priority for a movie like this. »

Hank Azaria’s Voice To Watch Over ‘Bordertown’

21 July 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

His face is familiar enough, but it’s Hank Azaria’s voice that has become recognizable around the world. He has rattled his tonsils as everyone from Moe Szyslak to Professor Frink in The Simpsons and is now taking the main role in another animated series from the writer of Family Guy. Bordertown is a potentially explosive look at the life of Bud Buckwald, an individual on the less correct side of the tracks who just so happens to work for Border Patrol.

Following Will Ferrell’s toe-dipping into similar waters, it seems lifting the lid on who gets in is the big topic for American satirists at the moment. Azaria will be supported by Alex Borstein (aka Lois Griffin) in a dual assignment as his wife and daughter, with Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) and Judah Friedlander (30 Rock) playing the rest of the Buckwald brood.
