Watch This Awesome Samurai Jack Tribute

2 July 2015 7:31 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Even though it has been over 10 years since Genndy Tartakovsky's popular animated series Samurai Jack ended, it continues to be regarded as one of the best shows ever on the Cartoon Network. Even now, loyal fans are still waiting / begging / praying to see more adventures of the displaced samurai warrior.  One fan has decided to pay tribute to the show and express his own creative urges by making a CG demo of Samurai Jack. He is Ave Espelita, who worked on the short on and off for more than four months and created all the visual assets using Blender, a free 3D software. The result is pretty awesome.

Watch: Dracula's a Granddaddy in New 'Hotel Transylvania 2' Trailer

17 June 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While certainly nowhere near as excruciating as other Adam Sandler/Happy Madison Productions like, say, the Grown Up movies, That's My Boy or Jack and Jill (not to mention The Ridiculous Six, most likely), I didn't really care for 2012's Hotel Transylvania. It was too noisy, busy, heartless and overtly juvenile for my tastes. But like many points in my life, I'm in the minority because lots of people saw it and now we got a sequel, Hotel Transylvania 2, which just got a new trailer. The Drac Pack is back, although we now find ourselves some years later. Dracula (Sandler) is now a grandfather to his daughter Mavis' (Selena Gomez) son Dennis, although the child is well into his toddler years and still hasn't formed in vampire traits. Worried he won't come into his potential, he and his fellow Pack members Frank (Kevin James), Wayne (Steve Buscemi), Murray (Keegan-Michael Key, »

Hotel Transylvania 2 Trailer Takes Monster Shenanigans to California

17 June 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for the animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 2. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the film finds the titular hotel relaxing its “monsters only” policy, but Adam Sandler’s Dracula has bigger fish to fry. His half-human, half-vampire grandson Dennis starts showing signs of being more human than vampire, so Dracula and his ghoulish pals put the child through a rigorous “monster-in-training” boot camp, only to find Dracula’s own father (Mel Brooks) making a surprise visit. The film looks fine, but it’s a bit unfortunate that this trailer arrived the same day as a really great trailer for another animated film was unveiled. The sequel looks to move some of the monster madness to California, as Selena Gomez’s Mavis considers moving to a more human-centric area given her son’s tendencies. Check out the new trailer below. Hotel Transylvania 2 opens in theaters on September 25th, »

Women Rule at This Year’s Annecy Animation Festival

14 June 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even successful animation pros have admitted that sometimes they’ve felt relegated to “the kids’ table” on the awards circuit. But that doesn’t happen at Annecy, the world’s longest-running festival for animated films. At the French festival, legends like “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening attract rock star attention, while studio execs scout talent and directors unveil upcoming films.

“Annecy holds a special place,” says DreamWorks co-president and producer Bonnie Arnold, who premiered “How to Train Your Dragon 2” there last year. “There’s no greater pleasure than to see the response of your peers in animation.”

This year, Arnold will sit on the short film jury, which she expects will give her a glimpse of emerging talent. “So often, shorts become the launching pad for the animation directors of the future,” she says. Her role also makes Arnold part of Annecy history; for the first time in the festival’s 55-year run, »

Mel Brooks gave Genndy Tartakovsky 'flop sweat' on the set of 'Hotel Transylvania 2'

29 April 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - When you're directing a cinematic legend like Mel Brooks, nerves are going to happen. At least they did with "Hotel Transylvania 2" director Genndy Tartakovsky, who relates that giving notes to his "comedy hero and inspiration" (who voices the role of Dracula's father Vlad in the animated sequel) was more than a little intimidating. "Once he goes, 'how would you read that line?' And I got flop sweat right away, cause I don't know, why are you asking me, you know? You're Mel Brooks!" laughed Tartakovsky while promoting the film at CinemaCon. "But I had to do it, so I just kinda gave him a line reading, and he goes, 'Okay, I'll try it that way -- once!' So it was very funny, but he was super nice, and at I think 88 years old, he's quick, so quick, and so smart." Along with Brooks, "Hotel Transylvania 2 »
