The Eagle Huntress Review

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Eagle Huntress is a brilliant fusion of Pixar’s Brave and Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon. Except it’s all real. This is a tale of a young girl battling against sexist tribal elders to become the first eagle huntress; besting her rivals, proving herself against the elements and battling against the odds.

The raw material of isolated Mongolian eagle hunters makes for a potent cinematic cocktail: not just authentic and uplifting, but inherently visually exciting. It’s perhaps no wonder that Ice Age director Chris Wedge has signed on to direct an all-star animated adaptation of the same story.

With its subject’s snowballing fame (and high hopes for the film in awards season), its humble origins are increasingly faintly surreal. It began with photographer Asher Svidensky heading to Mongolia to document the lives of Kazakh eagle hunters, a trip which produced a striking picture of a »

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘La La Land’ Ride Oscar Wave on Soft Holiday Weekend

15 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As far as the box office is concerned, the Martin Luther King holiday weekend might better be dubbed Memorial Day, as six new wide releases are weak or dying. Despite a wide array of product which should have boosted totals, this weekend looks to be down 19 per cent from last year.

On the other hand, Oscar contenders “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox) and “La La Land”(Lionsgate) continued to surf cresting audience enthusiasm to place first and second for the three day weekend.

School vacation Monday results may boost Universal’s “Sing” and possibly Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” to higher positions. Animated musical “Sing” is holding well, with a 33 per cent drop. “Rogue One,” though now the top-grossing 2016 domestic release, is falling far faster than juggernaut “Force Awakens” a year ago.

‘Monster Trucks’ Review: Kid Adventure Charms More Than It Stalls

14 January 2017 10:36 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Originally slated to be released at the tail-end of last year, “Monster Trucks” has surreptitiously (and unceremoniously) slid into theaters this weekend across the country. The ominous January release date is typically a bad omen and telltale sign of a film’s quality. Of course, there are exceptions to the rule. Case in point: “Monster Trucks.” “Ice Age” director Chris Wedge’s first foray into live-action cinema is an oddly charming story that delivers on the promise of its title. There are monsters, and there are trucks. Plenty of them. Written by a squadron of screenwriters (Derek Connolly, Matthew Robinson, »

Powerless: Promo Shows Bruce Wayne's Cousin Played By Alan Tudyk

14 January 2017 6:24 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

If you do not know what NBC's Powerless is, don't think that you are in for another action packed DC series. It is far from that, the show premiers in February, and it will be a comedy based on Vanessa Hudgen's character who gets her dream job at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, and her boss Alan Tudyk that plays the cousin of Bruce Wayne himself, Van Wayne.

Emily Locke lands her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to super heroes and villains and citizens fed up with the collateral damage of their constant fighting. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her aspirations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero. »

'Monster Trucks' Review: Beasts Meet Pickups in This Stalled Blockbuster

13 January 2017 10:18 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

First, a confession: I was almost rooting for Monster Trucks to be bearable. Why? Because Paramount Pictures, which is releasing the film, took a $115 million write-down against anticipated losses before it even opened. It's like having your parents write off your college tuition because they know you'll never amount to shit. Talk about lack of faith. So what a kick it would be if this family film actually turned out to be fun, right? Dreams can come true, kiddies. Just not this time.

Monster Trucks – Review

12 January 2017 9:57 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Even though its several months till the temps rise to signal the start of blockbuster kid-friendly entertainment time, the multiplex chefs are ready to whip up something that will satisfy the appetites of the pre-teen crowds. Here’s a tasty mash-up, much in the vein of other blended concoctions. Several years ago some far-sighted studio marketing exec thought, “Hey, kids love their doggies and they love sports, so how about a pooch that plays basketball?”. Air Bud proved to be quite the franchise, so this new flick should be another “slam dunk”. The tots love their weird creatures (as long as they’re not too scary) and they adore those big-wheeled behemoths that flattened everything in their path. Have some animation veterans sprinkle a bit of magic and slapstick, and you’ve got a candy coated respite from those somber award season contenders. Clear the way for the Monster Trucks. »

The Lrm Interview with Monster Trucks Director Chris Wedge

12 January 2017 12:46 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

After years directing animated movies for Blue Sky Films--the original Ice Age, Robots and Epic were three of his movies--Chris Wedge decided to follow the route of many animation directors before him and do a live action movie.

Along came Monster Trucks, possibly one of the simplest high concept premises ever turned into a film, and Wedge somehow found a way to use that idea to put a twist on the “boy and his car” movie that was done so well in Michael Bay’s original Transformers movie.

It stars Lucas Till (MacGyver) as Tripp, an outsider in his North Dakota town, who spends his time at the garage working on a beat-up pick-up truck that just needs an engine. When an explosion at a nearby oil drilling site unleashes a creature that lives under the earth, its quest for life-sustaining oil leads it to Tripp’s garage and »

‘Hidden Figures’ Could Be #1 Again On Mlk Weekend, But New Releases Show Little Promise

12 January 2017 8:16 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The year is off to a strange start, even at the box office. Last weekend saw “Hidden Figures” win in a rare race among three titles for the top spot, but this weekend looks even more complicated. Multiple films will vie for no. 1 — and “Rogue One” isn’t one of them.

Among last weekend’s top grossers, the only one in the hunt is “Hidden Figures.” It will likely will drop to the high teens, and the most likely challenger is the first national expansion of “Patriots Day.” There will also bean even wider break for the major crossover success that is “La La Land,” with “Live By Night” and “Silence” also expanding, if to considerably less effect.

Three new films will open with Paramount’s “Monster Trucks,” Stx’s “Bye Bye Man,” and Open Road’s “Sleepless.” All told, that’s seven films moving into more theaters, a traffic »

Comic Book Review – All-Star Batman #6

Chris Cooper reviews All-Star Batman #6…

“Cold to the Core”! Batman travels to Alaska to confront Mr. Freeze as he attempts to extract the world’s oldest ice core and bring humanity to a new Ice Age! Powerhouse artist Jock joins Scott Snyder to bring you another of the Dark Knight’s rogues like you’ve never seen him before.

See Also: Check out a preview of All-Star Batman #6 here

I’ve long been a fan of Scott Snyder’s work on Batman. The New 52 was where I started buying monthly comics, and I picked up all 50 issues of Snyder and Capullo’s Batman run.

Once it finished I toned down my monthly purchasing, so I’ve missed pretty much all of Rebirth so far. Fortunately Snyder is back with his own title, which not only manages to avoid the fortnightly release schedule adopted by many other titles but also appears to stand on its own. »

‘Monster Trucks’ Review: This Kid-Friendly Creature Feature Drafts Off A Dozen Better Movies

10 January 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The story of a hunky high school senior who discovers an oil-guzzling sea beast (think “Sesame Street” meets the Kraken), and then knots its tentacles around the chassis of his custom jalopy in a perverse attempt to pimp his ride, “Monster Trucks” seems like such an impossibly stupid idea for a movie that it’s easy to forget how it derives from a rather proud history of Hollywood entertainment. After all, there have been any number of studio spectacles about a young boy, or a teenage boy, or — in this case — an obviously grown-ass man doing a hilarious job of pretending to be a teenage boy — whose frustrated small town existence is turned upside down when he befriends a strange and unexpectedly sweet creature that teaches him about growing up or whatever. “Monster Trucks,” however aimless and confused it may be, rolls down a road paved by verified hits like “E.T., »

The Dark Knight Feels The Chill In All-Star Batman #6

10 January 2017 9:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even without his longtime collaborator in artist Greg Capullo, superstar scribe Scott Snyder continues to churn out incredible stories featuring the Dark Knight in the pages of All-Star Batman. With the first arc now behind us, the antagonistic focus for the next issue will be placed on one of my favorite villains, Mr. Freeze.

This is especially exciting because aside from an annual released a few years back, Snyder hasn’t had the opportunity to work on Freeze very much. Knowing what he has done with baddies such as Joker, Riddler, and Two-Face makes this all the more special.

Monster Trucks Review

9 January 2017 2:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Monster Trucks is pure, child-first cinema that’s energetically staged to wow younger audiences (and entertain older chaperones). Didn’t see that coming, did ya? We’re talking about a film that Viacom publicly took a $115 million write-down for and buried away with little-to-no hype. As a critic, these scenarios typically spell a 15-car-pile-up kind of disaster – yet Monster Trucks is no such dumpster fire.

As legend tells, former Paramount film president Adam Goodwin fell in love with an idea co-spawned by his four-year-old son. From there, Ice Age/Robots director Chris Wedge was offered his first feature outside animation, with screenplay duties going to Safety Not Guaranteed/Jurassic World writer Derek Connolly (story by Glenn Berger/Jonathan Aibel/Matthew Robinson). No joke. All these people were tasked with making a child’s cinematic dreams come true, and that’s exactly what the film feels like – a wide-eyed, enthusiastic slice of fun-filled kiddie entertainment. »

Argentina Admissions Edge Down, Gross Box Office Shoots Up 25% To All Time Record

9 January 2017 2:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Cinema box office in Argentina, Latin America’s third biggest movie market, shot up 24.7% in 2016 to an all-time record of 3.9 billion pesos ($245.8 million), according to Argentina’s Incaa Film Institute – though a 62% devaluation in the Argentine peso against the dollar from December 2015 punctured any uptick in dollar-calculated returns to Hollywood studios.

The historic record can be put down to rising ticket prices. Total admissions, a more reliable indicator of box office health for analysts, edged down 3.14% last year to 48.9 million, the second-best result this decade.

Results were bulwarked by the same phenomenon seen in  many major markets in Europe and Latin America as results for 2016 come in: Strength-in-depth from a encouraging spread of titles rather than one or two juggernauts. Powering box office, as in other territories, were stellar results for a clutch of big Hollywood animation movies as well as a robust performance from the national cinema.

Josh searches Batagay crater for mammoth DNA on Expedition Unknown Ice Age

4 January 2017 11:30 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

In this second part of Expedition Unknown Ice Age, Josh is searching for some mammoth DNA that would be viable as the source for creating a new mammoth. His search takes him to the isolate wilds of Siberia where those hunting for mammoth tusks dig them out of the permafrost and the river banks. He also journeys to the Batagay crater, which looks like it was caused by an impact. It is actually agiant sinkhole that first appeared in the 1960s when the forest was cleared. Since then it has expanded by about 15m every year, scientists think the expansion more »
