Eligible Films in Oscars Animated Feature Race

3 November 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every year the field seems to get bigger for the Oscar animated feature race. Here’s a run-down of eligible features.

The Angry Birds Movie

Directors: Clay Kaytis, Fergal Reilly

Voices: Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride

Studio: Sony Pictures Imageworks

Distributor: Columbia Pictures

If “Angry Birds” gets nominated, it will make history, becoming the first Oscar contender derived from a mobile gaming app. To its credit, the bright, high-energy CG toon struck many as far more delightful than such a provenance would suggest.

April and the Extraordinary World

Directors: Christian Desmares, Franck Ekinci

Voices: Angela Galuppo, Susan Sarandon, J.K. Simmons, Paul Giamatti

Studio: Je Suis Bien Content

Distributor: GKids

Inspired by the steampunk-esque graphic novel by Jacques Tardi, this female-driven adventure story takes place in a world without electricity. One of the few hand-drawn movies in the mix, and the most classical.

Finding Dory

Directors: Andrew Stanton, Andrew MacLane

Voices: Ellen DeGeneres, »

Film Review: Ice Age: Collsion Course

21 July 2016 10:21 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

If you’ve ever pondered why the world exists, Ice Age: Collision Course offers a theory—Scrat, the franchise staple saber-toothed squirrel unleashed a sequence of cosmic ping-pong while on his endless hunt for an acorn. But if you’ve ever wondered why the Ice Age series endures, well…I’m afraid I can’t help you with that one.

There has been an unwritten truce between animation studios and parents since at least the last glacial period: the shops make entertaining cartoons with subtle, smart messages for adults, and the grownups bring the kiddies to the theater. Ice Age seems determined to upset the natural order. I suppose kids old enough to understand them may be amused by the parade of poop and butt jokes. But, more likely, those who understand scatology will be too old to care for the film’s mostly unfunny one-liners and clownish physical humor. »

Ice Age: Collision Course movie review: where is a mass extinction when you need one?

18 July 2016 6:37 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The Ice Age flicks are the cinematic equivalent of drive-through nuggets of reconstituted chicken slurry served by a bored teenager in a cardboard hat. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): really hate this series

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Manny the Mammoth is back! In this Very Special Episode of Ice Age, Manny gets exasperated by the fact that his wife, Ellie, and daughter, Peaches, are independent creatures with minds of their own: “Women! I don’t get ’em!” he exclaims [insert laugh-track clip of a 1967 studio audience roaring]. Watch what happens when Manny forgets his wedding anniversary — he’s gonna be in trouble with the missus! [studio audience groans dramatically] And then there’s Peaches’ upcoming wedding to loveable doofus Julian. [studio audience: “awwwww!”] Is it the end of Manny’s world now that his little girl is officially all grown up? It just might be… what with that massive asteroid heading straight for planet Earth! »

How was the world created? A big mass of matter, big bang, evolution you may say. What if the world was created by something dumber? Something like Scrat setting up a series of events after discovering a flying saucer, that causes the beginning of the universe as we know it? (All the while in pursuit of »

8 July 2016 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This July sees the release of the fifth installment in Blue Sky Studios’ Ice Age franchise, entitled Ice Age: Collison Course. While the film is still in the “final touches” stage, Flickering Myth’s Scott J. Davis was able to not only see some extended footage from the film, but sit down with the film’s co-director Galen T. Chu to discuss what the new adventure has in store.

Working with director Mike Thurmeier, Chu is the fifth film’s co-director and one of his first jobs was to help “up the stakes” of this entry:

“When Mike and I started working on the project we definitely wanted to put a little bit more “umph” into it because we knew it was the fifth installment of the franchise so we came at it with everything we had.”

‘Ice Age: Collision Course’ Review Roundup: Critics Mostly Cold on Toon Sequel

19 June 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The newest “Ice Age” is out next month, and at least a couple critics seem to wish the franchise would hurry up and go extinct. Writing for The Wrap, Alonso Duralde opens his review by calling the series as a whole “so blandly forgettable that parents could probably show an earlier entry to their kids and pretend it’s the new one.” He continues, writing that the fifth installment in the prehistoric saga lacks “laughs, energy and sharp edges in equal degrees to its predecessors” and “takes huge strides in the hotly-contested race to be 2016’s Most Irrelevant Sequel.”

Hollywood Helps Boost Annecy to Record Levels

13 June 2016 4:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annecy — Energised by the largest Hollywood presence ever, the 2016 Annecy Intl. Animation Film Festival also looks set to the biggest ever, and a bellwether of the forces driving a now near global industry.

Six of the eight upcoming Hollywood studio animation releases for 2016 receive privileged play at Annecy, the Cannes of the animation industry, including one world premiere, a European premiere, a slew of never-seen sequences and a first-time Annecy presence from Warner Animation Group.

Of the big U.S. highlights, Universal’s Illumination Entertainment will world premiere “The Secret Life of Pets” at Annecy on June 16, three weeks before it U.S. July 8 general release.

DreamWorks Animation look set for its biggest roll-out ever at Annecy: a Guillermo del Toro Masterclass, focusing on his career, then a showrunner reel and about 10 minutes-plus of clips or scenes from “Trollhunters”; a sneak peek of Mike Mitchell’s animated comedy musical “Trolls,” presented by production designer Kendal Cronkhite (“Madagascar” film series), who will preview about 20 minutes of final footage; 15-20 minutes of never-before screened footage from Alec Baldwin comedy “Boss Baby,” unveiled by movie’s director Tom McGrath.

From Blue Sky Studios, longtime producer Lori Forte and co-director Michael Thurmeier team to present the new characters, palette and worlds of Fox’s “Ice Age: Collision Course,” via multiple never-seen sequences.

Directorial duo Ron Clements and John Musker (“Aladdin,” “The Princess and the Frog”) will be in Annecy to show new artwork and work-in-progress sequences from“Moana,” Walt Disney Animation Studio’s big late 2016 bow. Slated for a Nov. 23 U.S. release, the comedy adventure turns on a teen girl who sets out on the Polynesian high seas to prove herself a master way finder.

Co-director Andrew Stanton introduces the European premiere of Pixar’s “Finding Dory” which opened at Los Angeles Theater on June 8, Variety calling it “ravishing.” It has scored a Rotten Tomatoes 93% approval rate, though some reviewers thought it just a notch below “Finding Nemo.

Genndy Tartakovsky will be on hand to talk about his reboot for Cartoon Network of cult TV series “Samourai Jack”

Producer Brad Lewis will introduce the Warner Animation Group and its upcoming “Storks,” set for a Sept 23 release. “This is exciting for us because it’s the first time in quite some time that Warner Bros. has a real presence at Annecy and we plan to make a statement there.” said Chris deFaria, president, animation, digital production, VFX, Warner Bros. Pictures.

In other highlights, Aardman Animations will be presented with the Mifa/Variety Animation Personality of the Year Award. The 2016 Annecy Festival kicks off June 13 with a screening of Michael Dudok de Wit’s “The Red Turtle.”

Total accreditations were running on June 10 at 7,800, including Mifa, and expected to end up 10%-15% above 2015, said Patrick Eveno, at event organiser City of Moving Images (Citia). Registered attendance at Annecy’s Intl. Animated Film market (Mifa) was at 2,460 last Friday, 6% up on the same day in 2015, said Mifa head Mickael Marin. Final Mifa attendee numbers could be near to 2,800. Figures are 120% up on 2004, with Annecy posting significant increases in 2015 and 2016.

Explanations for this hiked influx cut several ways.

At 27 for 2012 but 20 for 2014, according to a report, “Mapping the Animation Industry in Europe,” the number of animated features being released in the U.S in recent years may not have grown. With Sony, then Universal and now Warner Bros. driving into animation in the last 10 years, however, the number of Hollywood studios making them most certainly has.

Animation is a huge global box office driver, and not just when it comes to animated features, another argument runs. Factoring in spectacle films that are 90%-plus SFX, the majority of the top 10 global box office is has an animation base. It makes sense that Hollywood studios beyond Disney-Pixar and DreamWorks would want to get more and more involved in this world.

Also, animation, of what is understood as animation, is broadening its technological and artistic options. One example: Google Spotlight Stories will showcase from June 13 a sneak-peek of Felix Massie’s “Rain and Shine,” the Tribeca-screened “Pearl,” from Patrick Osborne, and Aardman’s “Special Delivery,” from Tim Ruffle, all made-for-smartphones 3D Vr animated shorts, allowing viewers to explore stories unspooling in real time in an immersive 360-degree space. “Pearl” was made in five different formats simultaneously, Jan Pinkava, Google Spotlight Stories creative director, told Variety at Annecy.

April’s CinemaCon, which targets exhibitors, and San Diego’s Comic-Con, held in July, both feature animated movies. But Annecy is unique in focus and size. “Annecy is solely focused on animation of different types. It’s the world’s biggest animation festival, pretty unique in its size,” said Mireille Soria, DreamWorks Animation’s co-president, feature animation.

Also building attendance and attracting big players is Annecy-s track record. Illumination Ent. head Chris Meledandri world premiered “Despicable Me,” “Despicable Me 2” and “Minions” there. “Minions” went on to rank as the second highest-grossing animated feature in history.

Over the last few years, Walt Disney Animation Studios bowed shorts “Feast” and “Paperman” in the small French Alps town. Both went on to win an Oscar. Little wonder it’s back this year with new short film, “Inner Workings,” presented by producer Sean Lurie and its director, Leo Matsuda, a story artist on “Big Hero 6” and “Wreck-It Ralph.”

Annecy is a very good place to sneak peek a work-in-progress, said Bonnie Arnold, DreamWorks Animation’s co-president, feature animation.

“You’re really getting a worldwide audience this week, professionals, students, a rapt fanbase. It’s a good place to get good word-of-mouth started,” she added.

“Everybody’s in a good mood. It’s a very good place to work and introduce your company or film,” Marin concurred.

The U.S. presence, including some very-probable award season contenders, has had a knock-on effect.

“There are more and more companies, from more and more countries,” Eveno said.

If production numbers are swelling, it’s in smaller countries in Europe and in world cinema.

“It used to be near impossible to make a high-quality CGI feature for less than $100 million. Now it’s possible to make a beautiful CGI film for a fraction of the cost, at budgets that used to be reserved solely for 2D,” argued Dave Jesteadt at Gkids, the U.S. distributor of eight Oscar-nominated animated features.

For the first time, Canada will host a national pavilion at Annecy. Exhibition space sold has also increased to spill over onto an island on the lake adjoining Mifa’s Imperial Palace location.

“Annecy is now the annual gathering of an industry large enough to need one. “It’s the great meeting place for the animation world, and I literally mean world: The studios, the independents, feature films, experimental films , short films, it’s really representative of what’s going on in the world of animation,” said Arnold adding that the animation community rarely gets together in this kind of way.

In anticipated highlights from outside the U.S., of the deans of European animation, Didier Brunner will present a Work in Progress of “Big Bad Fox and Other Tales,” Benjamin Renner’s TV short series follow-up to “Ernest and Celestine.” Superprod will present classic reboot “White Fang,” Folimage will unveil a 15 short film series turning on France’s Chauvet-Pont d’Arc prehistoric caves, dazzling for their cave art.

Marking another sign of the explosive nature of the sector, 60-plus companies, and not just from the U.S will use Annecy to recruit new animators, Marin said.

Annecy bowed Monday cloudy with forecast of rain. Air and rail strikes may affect French industry access to Annecy, though the town is not much more than a five-hour car ride from Paris. Bused into the festival by its shuttle service from Switzerland’s Geneva, foreign guests should not be affected.

Whatever the weather, animators love Annecy. They’re treated like rock stars. Also, they enjoy its knowledgeable audiences who “have a sense of legacy in animation – the animation that’s come from  the past – how what they’re seeing dovetails and differs from what’s come before – how it’s taking animation someplace new,” said “Moana” director John Musker.

He added: “It’s an amazingly discerning audience it’s like “New York, New York” – if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.”

Space Rocks Rain From The Heavens In New Ice Age: Collision Course Clip

2 June 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One small step. One giant mess. Scrat’s seemingly relentless pursuit of that iconic acorn reaches new heights in Ice Age: Collision Course, the fifth chapter in Fox and Blue Sky’s lucrative animation, who sets in motion a chain of cosmic events that results in a giant meteor being sent careering toward the planet.

Back on Earth, Sid, Manny, Diego and the rest of the gang are left facing imminent extinction – not for the first time – and today’s all-new clip for the sequel tees up that event by raining down space rocks on the clueless herd.

Guiding that Collision Course into theaters are directors Mike Thurmeier and Galen T. Chu, who have assembled a who’s who of talent in the voice booth.

Headlining that ensemble are the regulars: Denis Leary, Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, John Leguizamo and Jennifer Lopez, who all reprise their key roles from Continental Drift. »

Extinction Looms In Final Ice Age: Collision Course Trailer

9 May 2016 2:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Scrat’s relentless pursuit of that elusive acorn may have acted as the comedic lynchpin throughout the Ice Age franchise – a recurring gag that somehow weaves its way into the story time after time – but it’s really the cast of larger-than-life primordial mammals that ensure each installment scores well at the box office.

Hoping to uphold tradition later this year is Ice Age: Collision Course, which today premiered its final trailer ahead of release that features, you guessed it, Scrat scrambling after the wayward acorn. But there’s a twist to the tale, with a series of unfortunate events resulting in a massive asteroid thrown into a crash course with Earth and all of our heroes therein – i.e. Sid, Manny and Diego.

Orchestrating that Collision Course are directors Mike Thurmeier and Galen T. Chu, who have assembled a who’s who of talent in the voice booth. Case in point: Denis Leary, »
