Daily | Cannes 2015 | Matteo Garrone’s Tale Of Tales

14 May 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Lurid, lush, and ludicrous," Matteo Garrone's Tale of Tales with Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones and John C. Reilly "works from Giambattista Basile’s 17th century collection of fairy tales of the same name," notes Blake Williams. David Jenkins suggests it's "a gaudy, bawdy descendent to Pier Paolo Pasolini’s trilogy of life." And the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw sees traces of Walerian Borowczyk’s Immoral Tales. "But there’s also a bit of John Boorman’s Excalibur, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blackadder, The Company of Wolves, the Tenniel illustrations for Alice in Wonderland… and Shrek." We've got more reviews and clips. » - David Hudson »

Jeffrey Katzenberg Pumps Up ‘Panda 3,’ Dismisses Deal Talk

19 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation, sang the praises of digital technology and Chinese filmmaking from a platform in the Beijing Film Festival. But he dampened speculation that his company would be taken over by a Chinese firm.

He said he didn’t think Dwa would benefit from being majority Chinese-owned. “We are a minority owner in a joint venture here, and I think that is the most successful structure to do business here in China today. We’re very comfortable with that arrangement,” he told Variety, on the margins of a conference at the Beijing International Film Festival.

Katzenberg denied that a long-term Chinese owner is necessary to alleviate pressure from Wall Street of the kind that followed Dwa’s recent announcement of a cut in film production. Late last year there was stock market speculation that the company might be in talks with Chinese giants Wanda or Alibaba. »

Monster Hunt Posters Look Suitably Epic

4 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Something big this way comes, courtesy of Hong Kong-based production company Edko Films. Last year they announced the film Monster Hunt, their most expensive production ever, and this week they released two huge teaser posters, which you can see below. While details are pretty sketchy, the film will be a family-oriented fantasy, in which the young king of the monsters tries to make peace between the world of humans and the world of the monsters. A live-action film, it will feature a huge amount of cgi-animation for the monsters, which range from little and cute to... well... immense, judging from these posters. The director is Raman Hui, famous for working as animator and director over at Dreamworks. He did animation for the Shrek films and...

Shrek Could Return To Movie Screens Much Sooner Than We Thought

29 March 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Having made nearly $3 billion at the global box office, one can easily make the argument that the Shrek franchise has had more than its fair share of success - but it seems that we have not seen the last of the titular green ogre. This is because Antonio Banderas has hinted that the Mike Myers-voiced character could show up in the forthcoming Puss In Boots sequel, Puss In Boots 2: Nine Lives and Forty Thieves. Banderas was recently a guest on the Empire podcast, and it was there that the actor hinted at the return of Shrek to the big screen. It was while discussing Puss In Boots 2 that he shared some behind the scenes info from DreamWorks Animation, telling the show hosts that he had heard some rumors that his feline character would reunite with the green monster in his next adventure.

Shrek cameo planned for Puss In Boots 2?

27 March 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Antonio Banderas has hinted that Shrek may make a cameo appearance in Puss In Boots 2: Nine Lives and Forty Thieves.

The sequel to 2011's Puss In Boots was due for release on December 21, 2018 under director Chris Miller, before DreamWorks faced restructuring and the loss of 500 jobs - pushing the sequel back.

Speaking to Empire, Banderas said: "I heard some rumours that Shrek may be coming back. That would be great. Shrek doing a cameo… in My movie? Uh, huh! Yeah, I'd like that."

He added: "They are restructuring the script now. We started… but that's the process. A lot of people participate in the creation of the script and the story and the narrative, everything. And they include you!

"They take you to California and you read the script with them, give them your ideas, and a couple of months later you see a new script where everything has been touched up. »

'Shrek' May Cameo in 'Puss in Boots 2'

27 March 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though Shrek Forever After was touted as the final film in that animated franchise, DreamWorks Animation has teased that a Shrek 5 may be in the works. Though, that has never been confirmed. But rest assured, we probably haven't seen the last of the big green ogre and his pals. Talking with Empire, Puss in Boots himself, Antonio Banderas, hinted that Shrek may actually show up in the impending sequel Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves, though it will probably be just for a cameo. The actor says:

"I heard some rumors that Shrek may be coming back. That would be great. Shrek doing a cameo... in My movie? Uh, huh! Yeah, I'd like that."

That sequel is still a good three years away, as Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves won't hit theaters until at least December 2018. That was the film's original release date, but for now, »

Shrek To Return For Puss In Boots 2?

27 March 2015 6:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Shrek Forever After may have proclaimed itself ‘the final chapter’ back in 2010, but the jovial green swamp-dweller may not be finished on the big screen. According to Antonio Banderas, the man behind DreamWorks Animation’s feline-focused spin-off, a return for Mike Myers and Shrek is on the table for Puss In Boots 2. "I heard some rumours that Shrek my be coming back,” Banderas tells the Empire podcast.Puss In Boots was of course, a Shrek-free affair that spun out of the series to the tune of $550 million worldwide. A sequel has been germinating for some time already, although, as Banderas points out, “the process for these movies are way longer than people think”."They are restructuring the script now," he reveals. "We started… but that’s the process. A lot of people participate in the creation of the script and the story and the narrative, everything. And they include you! »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

DreamWorks Animation Won’t Get Much Relief From ‘Home’

25 March 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Massive writedowns. Failed sales. Deep staffing cuts.

It’s a trifecta of troubles that has left DreamWorks Animation struggling to find its footing and move forward after the worst year and a half in its often rocky history.

The company’s suffering won’t be alleviated when “Home,” its upcoming alien invasion film, lands on Friday. The picture is on track to open to between $30 million and $35 million, a respectable result but for the fact that it also carries a $130 million pricetag.

“Home” opened to strong numbers overseas last week, leading some analysts to predict that the film should end up with more than $100 million domestically and roughly $380 million globally.

“They would skirt the writedown and be out of a deficit situation with those numbers,” said David Miller, an analyst with Topeka Capital Markets.

Others are less optimistic.

“We have become a little bit more concerned that ‘Home’ could underperform expectations, »

Eddie Murphy isn’t known for loading up his schedule with too many films, but he has been gearing up his non-Shrek career in recent years. He’s now attached to Lee DanielsRichard Pryor biopic – but not as the comedian himself. Instead, he’ll be LeRoy “Buck Carter” Pryor.  Strap in and brace yourself.

It’s just the latest attempt to turn Pryor’s life into a film, with actors and directors hovering over the idea for years. Bill Condon was developing something with Murphy in mind to star, but that has since been superseded by a project spawned by Pryor himself before his death, »

Film Review: ‘Home’

7 March 2015 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hey “Home,” E.T. called — he wants his huggable-alien concept back. Introduced in the film’s opening seconds, when he bumps that little boy with the fishing rod from the DreamWorks Animation logo, over-eager alien invader Oh represents Jeffrey Katzenberg’s best hope at harnessing some of his old pal Steven Spielberg’s intergalactic buddy-movie mojo. Unimaginative and downright predictable by grownup standards, but bursting with elements sure to appeal to younger auds — including cutesy character design, quotable alien catchphrases and solid musical/vocal contributions from Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez, who add a dose of diversity to the human cast — Dwa’s lone 2015 feature release should manage to squeak past the $100 million mark during a relatively competition-free spring, while reinforcing the studio’s recent standing as the Pepsi of the animation world: It’s potable, but a distant second to the real thing.

Eddie Murphy Lied To An Old Southern Woman To Get The Rights To His New Movie

17 February 2015 9:01 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As Eddie Murphy gears up for a possible return to his star-making vehicle with Beverly Hills Cop 4, the comedic icon is also preparing his money-making voice for what could be another successful family friendly animated adventure based on the story of a real-life, brutal, but celebrated rodeo bull called Bodacious. Besides voicing the titular taurus, Murphy, also serving on the film as a producer, recently recalled the story of how he was able to wrangle the film rights from an old southern lady. By lying to her. about bull balls! (Do I have your attention?) In a recent interview with Playboy, which also yielded updates on Beverly Hills Cop 4, Murphy would broach the subject of the Bodacious project, which looks to get him back to his Shrek wheelhouse. It seems that Murphy had to go through a bit of a negotiation process with the owners of Bodacious the Bull, »
