Puss In Boots

Stars: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton, Amy Sedaris | Written by Will Davies, Brian Lynch, David H. Steinberg, Tom Wheeler, Jon Zack | Directed by Chris Miller

Shrek’s feline philanderer finally gets his own starring vehicle with the eponymous Puss In Boots which sees the titular hero meet a swathe of fellow fairytale characters and a rather Batgirl-esque love interest on a quest to redeem himself and his good name in this prequel to the Shrek franchise.

The story sees Puss on a mission to relieve Jack and Jill (of “the hill” fame) of the magic beans they have stolen in order to grow the famous fairytale beanstalk and retrieve the goose that laid the golden egg so that he can return to the village where he grew up, repay the debt he owes, clear his name and finally live the classic “happily ever »

Puss In Boots tops weekend box office unimpressively

30 October 2011 6:35 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Paranormal Activity 3 dropped by Puss in Boots at weekend movie box office. It may have been Halloween, but you wouldn't have guessed it at the box office as an animated film now purrs in first place over a horror movie. Still, Paramount Pictures isn't complaining, holding the first, second and fourth positions. Puss in Boots debuted with $34 million, not overly impressive for an animated film in general, averaging $8,603 from 3,952 theaters. Pic features the voice talents of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek and Zach Galifianakis, under the direction of Chris Miller, from the writing by David H. Steinberg, Brian Lynch, Tom Wheeler and Jon Zack. Daily Breakdown Over Halloween Weekend for Puss in Boots: - Friday: $9.6 million. - Saturday: $13.9 million. - Sunday: $10.47 million estimate.

Film Review: ‘Puss in Boots’ Coasts Through Familiar Animated Antics

28 October 2011 3:14 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Animated family films have made a pact with their audience. For our participation – and extra 3D glasses fee – they deliver the latest in computer generated eye candy, familiar voice talent and heroes that always win while making pop culture references. Antonio Banderas is “Puss in Boots.”

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Expanding on the feline swashbuckler from the “Shrek” series of films, “Puss in Boots” is a decent exercise of the animated pact, but doesn’t offer anything new or particular exciting. The generated atmosphere is gorgeous, truly a miracle of the modern age, but the filmmakers probably think this is enough. It took four writers to sweat out the adventurous screenplay, only to fall back on litter box jokes and a greek chorus cat who offers the oh-no-you-didn’t aphorism.

Set before his Shrek adventures, Puss in Boots (voice of Banderas) is introduced in all his roguish ways, loving and leaving his feline companion. »

Exclusive Portraits: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek at ‘Puss in Boots’ Red Carpet

26 October 2011 3:50 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – A media and admirer frenzy took place last week at the Kerasotes Icon theater in Chicago, where Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek walked the red carpet at the sneak preview for the upcoming film “Puss in Boots.” Both lent their voices to characters that are a spin-off from the “Shrek” series of animated films.

The Puss in Boots character, as voiced by Banderas, first appeared in “Shrek 2,” and got more screen time as the animated series went along. It is the combination of the suave interpretation of the character by Banderas and the comedy that the Shrek team gave the feline that made the role so popular. It almost was natural that there would be a spin-off, and that Salma Hayek would join the cast – as Kitty Softpaws.
