First Trailer for Hop

23 November 2010 3:53 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for Tim Hill’s (Alvin and the Chipmunks) upcoming CG/live-action family film, Hop.  The film, which comes from the same company who made this summer’s Despicable Me, stars James Marsden (Enchanted) as a slacker who finds himself taking care of the Easter Bunny (voiced by Russel Brand) after he accidentally injures him.  Instead of letting you know what the film is going to be about, the teaser instead features a cute CGI rabbit playing the drums to Song 2 by Blur.  Why?  I don’t really know.   Hop opens on April 1, 2011.  You can hit the jump to watch the trailer and to read a plot synopsis for the film.

Teaser Trailer: ‘Hop,’ With Russell Brand as the Easter Bunny

23 November 2010 2:53 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Despite the headline proclaiming that Russell Brand voices the Easter Bunny in Hop -- and, indeed, he does -- there's nothing to that effect in this teaser. All you'll see of the film is some drumming bunny animation. And what of the story with James Marsden playing a guy who takes in the Easter Bunny after he accidentally injures the not quite mythical beast? None of that here, folks. But it does inform audiences that the film is from the folks behind Despicable Me. Check out the teaser after the break. But if you're going to use Blur's 'Song 2' -- a well-worn piece of great pop if ever there was one -- you might as well animate a bunny rabbit playing along on drums. I'm not sure how effective this will be as a teaser for Hop, since there's no real indication of any of the film's content. But, »

So the team behind Horton Hears a Who has decided to hire someone who doesn’t mind being heard: Danny DeVito.The Lorax movie has been in development for a while now at Illumination, with a script from Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, who are also set to direct alongside Despicable Me’s Chris Renaud.Seuss’ story finds The Lorax, “who speaks for the trees” bemoaning the loss of his forest, as his literally gives a stump speech. The main villain is the Once-ler, a greedy sort who destroys the plants to create his Thneeds, a mystery product everyone is desperate to get their hands on. He’ll be voiced by The Hangover’s Ed Helms. Zac Efron »

Review: Despicable Me

Despicable Me

Stars (the voices of): Steve Carell, Julie Andrews, Russell Brand, Jason Segel, Miranda Cosgrove | Written by Ken Daurio, Cinco Paul | Directed by Pierre Coffin & Chris Renaud

Gru is a super villain living in suburbia. He has thousands of little yellow minions, an evil scientist in his paid employ, and an upstart nemesis who steals his thunder by stealing the Great Pyramid. He comes up with an audacious plan, but when his nemesis, Vector steals the shrink ray gun that he needs to pull off his spectacular heist, he adopts three little girls, Margo, Edith and Agnes to act as cookie-selling decoys.

Despicable Me uses caricature animation seen in Jimmy Neutron and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, which makes it instantly endearing. While it’s pedigree is pretty shabby (the writers from Horton Hears a Who and The Santa Clause 2), the neat super villain versus super »

Approved: ‘Despicable Me 2′ To Be Developed by Universal

15 July 2010 11:26 AM, PDT | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

Universal Pictures will begin development of Despicable Me 2, the sequel to to their animated hit Despicable Me.

Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri along with writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurioto are reportedly in talks to write a follow-up to the current No.1 movie in America.

“What’s particularly nice is that the making of Despicable Me was probably more fluid than any film I’ve ever worked on,” says Meledandri. “There was a clarity and a unified vision behind this film. I started the company three years ago this spring, and I am confident that this was the fastest transition of any major studio CG movie from idea to release that has ever been done.”

Despicable Me features the voice work of Steve Carell, Russell Brand and Jason Segel. The film has grossed more than $63 million in less than one week theaters.

Despicable Me Sequel in Development

14 July 2010 6:06 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Well, this news should come as no surprise considering the past weekend’s box office results [1], but it appears audiences can look forward to another Despicable Me film at some point.  Universal’s Illumination Studios scored a hit with its first feature over the weekend, doubling most analysts’ predictions with an impressive 56.4 million gross.  The studio’s head honcho, Chris Meledandri, is in talks with writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio on the proposed sequel now.  But, if you just can’t wait for the next film, you’re in luck.  Illumination will be producing two short films featuring the minion characters from the film. While I’ll admit I haven’t seen Despicable Me yet, I’ve certainly been seeing a lot of these little guys plastered all over the place.  They seem to possess the same kind of appeal as the penguins in Madagascar or Scrat in the Ice Age films. »

Despicable Me Review

13 July 2010 5:15 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Despicable Me Directed by: Pierre Coffin & Chris Renaud Written by: Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul (screenplay), Sergio Pablos (story) Starring: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig Never one to pass up a good cinematic curmudgeon, maybe I was predisposed to enjoy Universal's Despicable Me. I mean, when it comes to off-brand animated entertainment, ass-kicking Pandas and pet Dragons only take me so far — tt wasn't until Russian supervillian Gru (Steve Carell) put his adopted children to bed in the hollowed-out casings of “probably” inactive bombshells that I finally felt like the target audience. Ever since studios began better emulating Pixar’s secret sauce, they’ve met with varying degrees of success in combining raw, gooey emotion with their signature lighthearted recipes. Despicable Me grapples with it, and though it may be one of the most consistent examples yet, it’s still about as nuanced »

'Despicable Me 2' And 'Minions' Feature On The Way

13 July 2010 3:34 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

All right, so when I first saw the teaser trailer for "Despicable Me", I was immediately annoyed by the animation. It felt a little too "Ice Age" for me, and I absolutely cannot stand that series. Thankfully, over time and more advertisements, it had the "Fantastic Mr. Fox" effect on me. That means the story and direction were strong enough to distract me away from the some what dilapidated animation.After making a whomping $63.9 Million so far domestically, it should be no surprise that "Despicable Me 2" is green lit, which I totally welcome. Along with that, Illumination Entertainment wants to make a couple of short features on "Minions", which are the little yellow weird-voiced dudes that tried to help out Gru throughout the duration of the film.Illumination Entertainment is also putting together an animated feature for the Dr. Seuss children's book "The Lorax"with "Horton Hears a Who!" writers »

Illumination Ent Already Developing a Despicable Me Sequel

13 July 2010 3:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's so fluffy, right? After taking the #1 spot at the box office over the weekend, Deadline has confirmed that Universal's animated comedy Despicable Me will be getting a sequel, which is already in development at Illumination Entertainment, the animation company behind the movie. Despicable Me was the first big hit Universal has had in a while and they're looking to really build the brand into something much bigger, at the level of Pixar, as Illumination and producer Chris Meledandri are also developing two short films featuring the lovable Minions as well as the sequel (and a whole bunch of other upcoming animated films). Read on! Deadline says about the sequel: "Despicable Me 2 talks are already underway among the studio, Meledandri, and writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio." I haven't had the chance to see the movie yet, but I have heard some great things and seen lots of positive »

Despicable Me Sequel in Development

13 July 2010 2:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Illumination Entertainment's first feature Despicable Me earned 56.3 million domestically in its first weekend of release, nearly double what analysts had predicted. It seems like everyone got lured to the theater to catch a glimpse of those cute little yellow minions. Of course, a sequel is already in development. Mike Fleming reports that a sequel already in the works: "Despicable Me 2 talks are already underway among the studio, Chris Meledandri, and writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio." Also, the studio is already making two short films featuring the Minions. I'm guessing the shorts will be attached to future Illumination Entertainment releases like Hop and The Lorax, and Ricky Gervais' Flanimals. Illumination is also in the early stages of development on a Where's Waldo movie and a Tim Burton-helmed adaptation of The Addams Family, based on the original drawings from Charles Addams. But where do you go with a Despicable Me sequel? »

Despicable Me 2 On Its Way

13 July 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Despicable Me, the debut animation release from Illumination Entertainment, opened in America this past weekend to a huge $56.4 million, surpassing all expectations.

With international releases set to build up over the next few months, not to mention the subsequent home entertainment sales, it could end up as one of the biggest sleeper hits of the year, with a box office total to match.

It’s unsurprising to hear, then, that discussions on Despicable Me 2 have since been initiated. According to Deadline, Chris Meledandri, along with writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, are hard at work on the sequel to this unexpected hit film.

Universal, I’m sure, will be chomping at the bit to build on this momentum with Despicable Me 2, and there’s news of two new shorts based on the yellow tic-tac shaped Minions. Riding this wave, there are plans afoot to develop Ricky Gervais’s Flanimals as »

Screenwriters Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul talk "Despicable Me"

13 July 2010 12:51 PM, PDT | Makingof.com | See recent Makingof.com news »

MakingOf recently sat down with screenwriters Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio to speak about their most recent work, the just-released animated feature "Despicable Me," which topped all movies (including "Eclipse") at the box office last weekend with $56.4M.

After receiving the idea from Sergio Pablos and Chris Meledantri (Illumination Entertainment), both writers loved the concept of a villain who's trying to take over the world having to juggle the responsibilities of family life, saying "We thought it was great, that it was really funny, but it had the potential for great heart."

From storyboards to finished product, screenwriters have to exercise patience when it comes to seeing their work come to life.  Having previously worked on "Horton Hears a Who!" together, both Paul and Daurio realized the time and energy that it takes to bring their writing to the screen.  Expressing the satisfaction of the process, Paul states, "That's the thing that's amazing because. »
