For some reason, 2015 is the year of the spy spoof.
Earlier this year we got "Kingsman: The Secret Service," which turned out to be something of a surprise hit (especially given its brand new IP and R-rating) and on June 5th comes "Spy," the latest collaboration between director Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy (this is their third, after the hugely successful "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat").
"Spy" turns the espionage thriller on its head; instead of a slick male agent, we get McCarthy's bumbling office drone who's recruited after a Bond-ish spy (Jude Law) gets killed in the field. It could be dopey and crass, but Feig treats the material seriously and gets genuinely inspired performances out of a varied cast that includes Rose Byrne and, surprisingly enough, Jason Statham.
"Spy" premiered at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, where we sat down with Feig to discuss »

Competition titles revealed; exclusive first footage to screen from Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur and Disney’s Zootopia.
The Annecy International Animation Film Festival (June 15-20) is to spotlight the contribution of women to animation and their growing presence in the medium.
This year’s Honorary Cristal will be awarded to French director Florence Miailhe, whose unusual technique has been called “film painting”. She was first at Annecy in 2000 with Au premier dimanche d’aout, which won the Cear for Best Short Film, and won a special mention at Cannes in 2006 for her short Conte de quartier.
Sticking with the female focus, there will be films about maternity and sexuality, the female imagination and a strand titled The Future Is Woman.

The Peanuts Movie is one of the most anticipated animated releases of the year, and we have a new photo which returns one of the most iconic characters back to her post in the neighborhood. Yes, that's right! Lucy van Pelt will continue her career as a doctor offering Psychiatric Help from a make-shift booth on the lawn. But will she find more than one client, or is Charlie Brown the only soul in need of her precious life advice?

20th Century Fox has released a new The Peanuts Movie image, and it’s another sign that the film will stick closely to the charm and personality of Charles Schulz’ comic strip. Directed by Steve Martino (Horton Hears a Who!) and produced by Paul Feig, the story follows “the little round-headed boy with the indomitable optimism on a quest to get something he’s sure he needs, even though he discovers he’s pretty Ok just as he is.” Knowing Lucy and Charlie Brown’s relationship, it’s unlikely that the positive reinforcement is coming from her unless you see constantly taking a football away as tough love. Check out The Peanuts Movie image below. The film opens in 3D on November 6th. Via Yahoo!

In the event that you were worried about Paul Feig ruining another part of your childhood (and we.re not talking about his Ghostbusters reboot), have no fear. The Bridesmaids helmer is producing The Peanuts Movie for director Steve Martino, and he assures us that we won.t be having a repeat of Space Jam. In other words, it won.t be a completely modernized interpretation. Speaking with Collider at SXSW in promotion of his latest film with Melissa McCarthy, Spy, Feig spoke a bit about what we can expect from The Peanuts Movie. It.s very sweet. It.s totally a G-rated movie, because you can.t get edgy with Charlie Brown. That was the Schulz family.s fear, that me and Fox everybody were gonna come in and hip it up and cast Justin Bieber as Charlie Brown and have it like Space Jam or something. All of »
Though filmmaker Paul Feig is best known for female-centric R-rated comedies like "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat," he's also onboard as producer of the 3D CGI animated feature film adaptation of Charles M. Schulz's beloved "Peanuts" comic at 20th Century Fox.
One fear fans have had about the film is if the classic cartoon characters would undergo a "modern makeover" to cater to contemporary audiences more ala "The Smurfs" or films like "Space Jam". Speaking with Collider at SXSW, Feig says those fans have no need to fear:
"It's very sweet. It's totally a G-rated movie, because you can't get edgy with Charlie Brown. That was the Schulz family's fear, that me and Fox everybody were gonna come in and hip it up and cast Justin Bieber as Charlie Brown and have it like Space Jam or something. All of us were like, 'No.' We cast kids that sound »

Charles M. Schulz's beloved Peanuts comic strip characters are finally coming to life on the big screen later this year with The Peanuts Movie, a 3D CGI animated comedy from 20th Century Fox, director Steve Martino and producer Paul Feig, who is best known for his edgy comedies such as Bridesmaids and the upcoming Spy, in theaters May 22. There were several longtime Peanuts fans who were worried about a big-budget 3D animated film, and that these beloved characters might be reconceived to cater to modern-day audiences. While doing press for Spy at SXSW, Paul Feig revealed that the movie is "very sweet," confirming that it will be a G-rated movie, casting aside fear that it will be tonally comparable to a movie like Space Jam.

Paul Feig’s name has hit the headlines with increasing regularity since he was announced as commander-in-chief on the next Ghostbusters movie. Batting aside a barrage of questions and comments from fans and trolls alike, the director is barely able to address any other projects he may be involved in. Luckily, he’s now been granted that opportunity, as the folks over at Collider chatted to Feig this week about the big-screen version of Peanuts.
The upcoming movie, a 3D CGI extravaganza, hails from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky, whose inspiration is none other than Charles Schulz’s universally-loved comic. While plenty of detractors voiced their concerns about a big screen rebrand, with Schulz’s son Craig on scripting duties, Feig producing and Horton Hears A Who director Steve Martino at the helm, this looks like a slam dunk.
During the interview, Feig offered up his opinion on the modern-day version, »

20th Century Fox has revealed four new character posters for The Peanuts Movie, featuring Snoopy, Charlie Brown (voiced by Noah Schnapp), Linus (Alexander Garfin) and Lucy (Hadley Belle Miller). The ensemble voice cast was announced back in November, and these four posters only scratch the surface of the numerous characters who will be featured in this 3D animated movie. Hopefully these one-sheets are just the start of a massive poster roll-out while we wait for a new full-length trailer.

We've still got about eight months to wait until we see The Peanuts Movie hit the big screen, but that's not stopping 20th Century Fox from teasing the first big screen outing for Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang with some new character posters. What's interesting, is it seems like Fox has noticed that audiences aren't quite as familiar with the Peanuts moniker as they are with Snoopy and Charlie Brown since their names have been made much bigger than the actual title of the film itself on these posters. It certainly seems like the marketing will play up the well-known characters more than the comic strip title. Here's the new posters for Steve Martino's The Peanuts Movie from Total Film: You can check out the previous teaser trailer for The Peanuts Movie right here.

So that you don’t forget that there is film starring Charles M. Schulz’s Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts kids coming our way later this year, Fox has released a new set of character posters. Check them out in all their yellow glory below. The film, which bears the somewhat unwieldy title Snoopy And Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie in this country, finds Charlie Brown in typically anxious mode as he embarks on a small-scale quest to find something he believes is truly important to him. Snoopy, meanwhile, has much bigger ambitions, taking to the skies in pursuit of his aerial arch nemesis, The Red Baron. Directed by Ice Age: Continental Drift’s Steve Martino and produced by Paul Feig, the film also features input from Schulz family members Craig and Bryan, with extra script work from Cornelius Uliano. It’s been crafted using the latest CG tech, »

So many children and generations have grown up with the Peanuts comic strip and holiday cartoons that you wonder if a big-screen adaptation of Charles Schultz’s beloved characters is just overdoing it. For the new film Peanuts, due out November 6, the lovingly hand drawn animation has been done away with for an updated, CGI gloss. And yet this first trailer shows there’s still some modest humor to be had, with Snoopy and his pal Woodstock dreaming up more big adventures as that signature song plays. Charlie Brown and the whole gang make an appearance briefly at the trailer’s end as well.

Fox has released a new trailer for the animated “The Peanuts Movie,” due out Nov. 6.
The computer animated 3D movie, based on Charles Schulz’s iconic comic strip, opens with Woodstock the bird working on converting Snoopy’s doghouse to a World War I airplane with Vince Guaraldi’s classic “Linus and Lucy” theme playing. Snoopy then flies the doghouse to Paris as his World War I flying ace in pursuit of the Red Baron, whereupon he returns to the initial setting.
The trailer concludes with a brief scene of Charlie Brown coming into a movie theater to see the movie.
