Box Office: 'Peabody and Sherman' pull ahead of '300' while 'Need for Speed' stalls

16 March 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles (AP) — Chasing down the top spot at the box office after debuting at No. 2 last week, "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" took the lead in its second weekend. The DreamWorks animated film about the time-traveling adventures of a genius dog and the human son he adopted earned $21.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The 3-D kiddie-jaunt features voices from "Modern Family" stars Ty Burrell and Ariel Winter. "Our mid-week numbers were very strong indicating good and positive word of mouth," said Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution at Twentieth Century Fox. "If anything, this is exceeding (expectations). It's a combination of likable characters and it's a nostalgia play for those who are familiar with the show." Mr. Peabody and Sherman first appeared in the 1950s and early 1960s on the show "Peabody's Improbable History," a segment within the animated television series "Rocky and His Friends" and later "The Bullwinkle Show. »

See This/Skip That: From The Grand Budapest Hotel to Mr. Peabody & Sherman

7 March 2014 12:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Rise of an Empire is a fine sequel to 300, but People's critic says you should check into The Grand Budapest Hotel instead. Here's what to see and what to skip in theaters this weekend. See thisThe Grand Budapest HotelWhimsy gets such a crappy rap. Granted, too many directors use it poorly, spraying their sketchily plotted, inartfully written films with cinematic chintz. But Wes Anderson is of an entirely different vintage. He uses massive amounts of whimsy - more than just about anyone else - but the difference is that he knows just how. Take The Grand Budapest Hotel, for instance. »

Mr. Peabody & Sherman – The Review

6 March 2014 11:14 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

There’s one name that almost always gets a smile from nostalgic fans of TV cartoons: Jay Ward. After all, he helped to produce one of the earliest cartoon shows during television’s infancy, “Crusader Rabbit”. But it wasn’t until 1959 that Ward unleashed his masterpiece, “Rocky and His Friends”. Each half hours usually contained two short chapters of an ongoing adventure serial starring Rocky the Flying Squirrel and his dimwitted pal Bullwinkle the moose. And in between these installments were classic features often funnier than the show’s title stars. There was the satiric “Fractured Fairy Tales”, the campy “Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties”, the fables of “Aesop & Son”, and “Peabody’s Improbable History” in which the super-genius talking dog Mr. Peabody and his boy, the excitable seven year-old human named Sherman journeyed back through the years via Mr. P’s time travel invention the Wabac machine. After meeting some historical figure, »

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

6 March 2014 9:01 PM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

As someone who grew up loving “Peabody’s Improbable History” on Jay Ward’s animated TV series Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show, I approached this CGI feature with considerable trepidation. I’m delighted to say that my fears were unfounded: this movie is a treat for diehard Peabody fans and, I daresay, for newcomers as well. Ty Burrell delivers a pitch-perfect vocal performance as the world’s smartest dog, who has to prove himself worthy of being an adoptive father to a wide-eyed human son named Sherman (nicely played by Max Charles). In the old five-minute TV cartoons, there was no attempt to explore the nuances of the characters’ unusual relationship. This being a...

Best known as an animated television series created by Jay Ward, Idw Publishing has formed a partnership with Bullwinkle Studios and DreamWorks Animation to bring Rocky and Bullwinkle to the world of comic books.

Conceiving the new adventures for the moose and squirrel will be Eisner-winning writer Mark Evanier (Garfield and Friends) and artist Roger Langridge (The Muppet Show) as well as Stephanie Busceme (Powerpuff Girls) who will be illustrating a series of variant covers.

“I grew up, to the extent I grew up, on these characters,” stated Mark Evanier, “I watched Rocky and His Friends™ the first day it was on and I got a lot of my sense of humour, such as it is, from those cartoons.”  Langridge remarked, "Rocky and Bullwinkle wasn't shown in New Zealand when I was growing up, but I was familiar with the comics.  I particularly love the newspaper strip work of Al »
