The big animated films of 2015

15 December 2014 6:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for a handy guide to 2015's biggest animated movies, from Shaun The Sheep to Minions and Peanuts? Then step this way...

There have been far better years for family entertainment, and for animated films, than 2014. Whilst there have been highlights - Paddington, The Wind Rises, How To Train Your Dragon 2, The Boxtrolls - the mix of material on offer hasn't particularly sparkled.

A quick glance at the 2015 release schedule suggests, to a degree, the same, with some notably absentees from the year's releases. And yet as we dug deeper for our traditional look ahead at the year's animated films, there might just be some real treats here. Starting with this one...

Strange Magic

Let's start with one of the wildcards. A film that only recently arrived on the 2015 release schedules is Strange Magic, which belatedly marks the feature directing debut for Gary Rydstrom.

Axel Kuschevatzky: ‘Wild Tales,’ ‘Spanish Affair’ and The Rise of the Local Blockbuster

5 December 2014 3:18 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director of Telefonica Studios, Axel Kuschevatzky used to be one of Argentina’ highest profile – and passionate – film journalists. The passion remains. Now, however, he helps many of the Argentina’s – and Spain – highest-profile films get made, making a virtue out of a necessity: TV quotas in both countries obliging TV operators – the part-Telefonica-owned Telefe in Argentina’s case, for example – to invest in domestic movies. Via Telefe, Telefonica Stidios has already co-produced “The Secret of their Eyes,” “Foosball” and “Wild Tales.” In Spain, Telefonica Studios co-productions take in Alejandro Amenabar’s “Regression” and animation blockbuster “Tad, the Lost Explorer.” With Spain’s Telefonica buying up Spanish pay box Canal Plus and Telefonica’s ownership of pay TV operations across much of Latin America, it seems only a question of when and how and where Telefonica Studios ups the ante even more in film and TV content investment.

Composer John Powell Talks How To Train Your Dragon 2 & His New Oratorio

1 December 2014 12:29 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In June 2014, moviegoers traveled to the village of Berk once again in How To Train Your Dragon 2. The film’s composer, John Powell, recently won Best Score – Animated Film for the movie at 5th Annual Hollywood Music in Media Awards.

Powell has scored films including Antz, Chicken Run, Shrek, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and X-Men: The Last Stand and has frequently collaborated with directors Doug Liman and Paul Greengrass, on films including the Bourne trilogy, United 93 and Green Zone.

His infectious score for How To Train Your Dragon earned him his first Academy Award nomination. Powell has also lent his voice to the score of Dr. SeussThe Lorax, and Ice Age 4: Continental Drift. Most recently, audiences heard his music on the scores to Rio 2, directed by Carlos Saldanha, as well as the Dragon 2 sequel.

‘Penguins of Madagascar’ Continues DreamWorks Animation’s Stock Woes

1 December 2014 7:17 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeffrey Katzenberg likely can’t wait to put 2014 in the rear view mirror.

By almost any measurement — box office, stock market, public image — it’s been an annus horribilis for the DreamWorks Animation chief and the studio he built. The company’s latest big screen venture, “Penguins of Madagascar,” stumbled in its U.S. debut last week, earning $35 million over the five day Thanksgiving holiday. It had been expected to earn between $45 million to $48 million. In response, shares of DreamWorks plunged more than 9% on Monday morning.

“Movies are going to be the driving factor with their stock price and the movie business is often very hit or miss and they seem to have gotten it wrong several times now,” said Marla Backer, an analyst with Ascendiant Capital Markets.

The disappointing performance of the “Madagascar” spin-off underscores the vulnerability that DreamsWorks Animation faces as a publicly traded company that fields only »

The voice cast is made up of mostly unknowns, with all of the actors being age appropriate, as is the tradition for previous Peanuts animated specials and series. The full cast rundown is included here, along with more information about the release:

Aaugh! You're a good man, Charlie Brown, but Twentieth Century Fox pulled the football out from under you and announced the voice casting for The Peanuts Movie today. The Great Houndini reports, "It was a dark and stormy night..."

‘Peanuts’ Trailer: Does It Pass The Uncanny Valley Test?

18 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The big-screen update of Charles Schulz’s famed Peanuts comic strip characters has been touted by Fox as the first time the iconic gang had been on a big screen in CGI and 3D. It’s a daunting task and an ambitious effort from Ice Age studio Blue Sky and 20th Century Fox Animation, and it counts aficionado Paul Feig among its producers — the Bridesmaids helmer’s cred goes a long way, and he calls Peanuts his Star Wars growing up. But the first full trailer that dropped today does beg the question: Will fans miss the squiggly pencil days when the shiny and crystal-clear CG pic hits theaters on November 6, 2015?

Blue Sky, the animation house behind hits like Rio, Robots and the fantastic Ice Age movies, have just delivered the very fist trailer for the 2015 released Peanuts movie, featuring the world’s most famous beagle, Snoopy. The CGI animated movie hits cinemas in November next year, and judging by this first trailer, it’ll have a very festive feel to it.

In Peanuts, a 3D, CGI animated comedic adventure, Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace! – embarks upon his greatest mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home.

Take a look at the first trailer below. The Peanuts Movie releases in cinemas on 6th November, 2015.

Expect 'Peanuts' To Be Very Old School

17 November 2014 9:37 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When Peanuts arrives in theaters on November 6, 2015, don't expect a "modern spin on a classic." Aside from its 3-D, computer generated trappings, the film will very much be a classic Peanuts story. Producer Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and the rest of the crew responsible for the film want assure audiences that they're going for something much more timeless with this film than other modern reboots we've seen in recent years.

In a talk with USA Today, all of the folks behind Peanuts say that this will be a movie that very much celebrates the same themes as the original specials and comic strips which have worked their way into our pop culture for so long. Director Steve Martino thinks there's always been a potent message of optimism in Charlie Brown's adventures, and that's something he wants to bring to a cinematic landscape where snark and cynicism are ruling the roost.

30 October 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ridley Scott’s Rsa Films and theatrical advertising agency Wild Card have launched 3Am, a new venture that will focus on creating new forms of content to help market movies and other forms of entertainment to young, digitally savvy audiences.

3Am will essentially serve as a consultancy that collaborates with filmmakers, studios and brands in the early stages of a movie’s production to create integrated content and marketing extensions, the companies said.

Rsa president Jules Daly and Alison Temple will both serve as managing partners of 3Am.

“Film studios have an entirely new and unique set of challenges when it comes to marketing movies,” Daly said. “Rsa and Wild Card realize that Hollywood marketing today is a beast of its own consistently challenged with capturing consumer interest. As a joint entity of such esteemed creative companies, 3Am can help alleviate those challenges and work with the studios to think »

Recap: 'Doctor Who' - 'In the Forest of the Night' is a good old-fashioned fairy story

25 October 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a series high last week where audiences played at being a Time Lord, complete with all the haunting decisions that stick with you forever, what adventure will our plucky heroes get up to this week? With no real villain* to tie the season together, it’s like getting dressed in the dark as to what theme we’ll be exploring each week is. Will there be ramifications to Clara’s psyche for letting people die on her watch? Will Danny discover her lies? Only time will tell “In the Forest of the Night.” *Obviously Missy is the Big Bad™ (or the Big Red Herring™) but she’s too mysterious to be properly afraid of. She hasn’t even welcomed anyone to “Heaven” in forever. ************ A little girl is running through the forest to an ethereal soundtrack right out of Middle Earth. There are spiderwebs — again? — and I momentarily fear for her mortal safety. »

Fox To Adapt World-Bending Kids Adventure Timeless, Ridley Scott On Board As Producer

14 October 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In Hollywood, studio executives always seem to be falling over themselves in an attempt to lay claim to the next big thing — be it a financially sound franchise-starter or an eye-catching adaptation. For Fox, though, the company has seemingly acquired the latter property, after the studio struck a six-figure deal to bring Arman Baltazar’s three-part children’s series, Timeless, to the silver screen.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rio and Ice Age helmer Carlos Saldanha is currently on board to direct with Ridley Scott acting as producer. Fox has described its vision for Timeless as a blend of live-action and CG in the vein of Avatar — now we know why the company was so quick in snapping up those rights.

Regardless, Baltazer’s family-friendly tale orbits around a band of children from four different periods in history — Victorian England, the 1920s and 80s, along with the modern day. Not only that, »

Fox Taps ‘Rio’ Director Carlos Saldanha for Sci-Fi Movie ‘Timeless’

13 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has hired veteran animation director Carlos Saldanha to helm sci-fi fantasy movie “Timeless” as a possible franchise starter.

The project, based on the upcoming three-book series from Armand Baltazar, will be a live-action CG adaptation. Producers are Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer of Scott Free Productions, Steve Tzirlin, Brooklyn Weaver of Energy Entertainment and Saldhana through his BottleCap Prods.

Scott Free senior VP Michael Pruss, who brought the project into the shingle,  will exec produce and oversee “Timeless.” Maresa Pullman, who oversees BottleCap, will also exec produce.

The book series, to be published by HarperCollins, occurs in Chicago after a “time collision” eliminates the barriers between the past, present and future. The story follows a boy and his friends who rescue his father from a Roman general.

Saldanha’s directing credits include the first three “Ice Age” films and the two “Rio” titles. He has a first-look deal at Fox. »
