Any animated feature screening in Cannes in the wake of Pixar’s universally adored “Inside Out” was bound to seem like an anticlimax. And when the movie in question happens to be an adaptation of one of the most beloved children’s novels of all time, the potential for disappointment looms especially large. But to the sure relief of armchair aviators everywhere, director Mark Osborne’s “The Little Prince” turns out to be a respectful, lovingly reimagined take on Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s classic 1943 tale, which adds all manner of narrative bells and whistles to the author’s slender, lyrical story of friendship between a pilot and a mysterious extraterrestrial voyager, but stays true to its timeless depiction of childhood wonderment at odds with grown-up disillusionment. Independently made (on a reported $80 million budget) by French producer Dimitri Rassam, “The Little Prince” may lack the fast pace and high-concept storytelling of »

Chicago – Far more marvelous than imperfect, “Interstellar” is the answer for moviegoers who have lost the zeal for massive films, citing a lack of ideas, heart, or general passion for filmmaking. Director Christopher Nolan’s 2014 space odyssey is an event of beauty, with the rare experience of showing viewers something they haven’t seen before.
As a blockbuster of familiar features but unique successes, “Interstellar” welcomes comparisons to numerous films but consistently stands apart from them. Nolan has fashioned a singular experience that works with the busy simplicity of his previous movies, like “Inception”: It’s recognizable and easy to follow along, but with a clear interest in the philosophy that puts these tales into action.

The Great Wall of China has long been the object of many a man’s admiration. However, if you think you know the reason behind this ancient wonder’s creation, then you ought to prepare for your mind to be blown.
Behind “The Great Wall”
This year, a movie of epic proportions has started production, and it boasts not only of an ambitious concept but also a star-studded cast comprising of some of the most prominent figures from both Hollywood and the Chinese cinema.
Revolving around the majestic Great Wall, the film mashes elements from science fiction and history as it sets up its characters in 15th century China. Where’s the sci-fi in that, you ask? Well, apparently, the “real” reason the Wall was erected is a large-scale, unrecorded invasion of giant mythical creatures—aliens, perhaps? In this grievous battle against the supernatural, humankind opted to fortify its defenses »

Coming form King Fu Panda director Mark Osborne, 3D animation/stop motion mix The Little Prince offers a modern twist on the classic children's book by Antoine Saint-Exupery, telling the tale of a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert, and meets a young Prince who has travelled from his home on a distant asteroid on a journey to meet people from other planets and hear their stories. Boasting an amazing voice cast, including Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Ricky Gervais, Marion Cotillard, Paul Rudd, Benico del Toro, and James Franco, this looks absolutely beautiful, with the promise of an incredibly emotional story at its core. I will admit to feeling a bit teary eyed as the trailer reached its joyous crescendo. This will definitely be one to delight adults and kids alike. There is no Irish or American release date as of yet, but it is expected to come our »

The latest trailer dives more into the story than the first one and seems to illustrate the imagination that is going into this adaptation. It seems to be blending both digital CGI with some other animation styles such as stop-motion, »

One of the most well-loved children’s stories of all-time is bound for the big screen. The latest adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella The Little Prince hails from King Fu Panda helmer Mark Osborne, who takes a few liberties with the popular source material for his vision. But to be frank, with trailers this captivating and visually adventurous, it’s unlikely anyone will have cause for complaint.
The Little Prince tells the story of an Aviator whose plane crashes in the desert, which is where he meets the titular prince from an asteroid-sized planet whose day trip to Earth is part of his exploration of the galaxy. One of those aforementioned changes tying together the movie is a wraparound story that’s made apparent in this new preview. Featuring a young girl and her next-door neighbor, it’s a slight adjustment that shouldn’t sully the gloriousness of the stop-motion animation on display. »

Osborne's animated adventure will have its world premiere at the 68th Cannes Film Festival out of competition next month.
A new international trailer for "The Little Prince" takes viewers on a fantastical voyage, offering breathtaking visuals and evoking lots of heartstring tugging along the way.
The flick is the first feature-length, animated adaptation of the classic French novella, "Le Petit Prince," by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and boasts a stellar voice cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, and Benicio Del Toro.
The full synopsis, per Variety:
The multilayered animated tale centers around a little girl (Mackenzie Foy) who lives with her mother (McAdams) and gets initiated by her eccentric yet kind-hearted neighbor, the Aviator (Bridges), into a magical world where anything is possible - a world that the Aviator himself was initiated into long ago by the Little Prince (played by newcomer Riley Osborne).
That "multilayered" descriptor also applies to the film's animation itself, which is a mix of different media, including computer animation and intricate, »

Set as of Thursday to make its premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Out of Competition, a new international trailer for Mark Osbourne's (Kung Fu Panda) film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery beloved children's book The Little Prince has arrived. While this isn't the first teaser for the film, it is the first time English-speaking audiences can see the American voice cast. And boy, did they go all out with this voice cast, with Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Albert Brooks, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Bud Cort, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti lending their pipes to the animated picture. While it's hard to shake off The Lorax vibes created by a newly created child protagonist and her new old friend, there does seem to be more love and charm here than that film, not to mention how beautiful the animation is during the actual Little Prince moments. »

The Cannes Film Festival isn't only high brow, arty movies. Amongst the selection this year is something for the whole family, and while it won't win the Palme d'Or (indeed, its screening Out Of Competition), the movie will still see plenty of big stars on the red carpet, tellling a story everyone knows from childhood. A pretty amazing voicecast — Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Paul Rudd, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks, Bud Cort, and Ricky Gervais — has been lined up for Mark Osborne's "The Little Prince," and this new animated trailer for the movie shows the tale has been expanded well beyond the tiny kids' book. Whether it can retain the magic of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s timeless story remains to be seen.

“Our movie is an homage to one of France’s most iconic and revered properties, but also one of its most international, having crossed languages, cultures and generations.

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.
While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »
