The penguins are back! The scene-stealing Spheniscidae of the Madagascar franchise are hitting the big scene, and today we’ve got the first clip & poster for the Penguin Of Madagascar – They’ve got to the point, haven’t they?
In the film, you’ll discover the (unknown) secrets of the most entertainingly mysterious birds in the global espionage game. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private now must join forces with the chic spy organization, the North Wind, led by Agent Classified (we could tell you his name, but then…) to stop the cunning villain Dr. Octavius Brine from taking over the world.
The film boasts an array of superstar voices features the talents of Tom McGrath, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, and Ken Jeong. The penguins undoubtedly proved some much loved moments in the Madagascar franchise and even inspired a successful spin-off TV show on Nickelodeon!

It only took “three movies, ten video games, and 80 television episodes” by one director’s count, but the scene-stealing penguins from Madagascar are finally getting their own movie this fall. And based on what we saw at DreamWorks Animation’s Penguins of Madagascar Comic-Con panel on Thursday, they certainly deserve it. Directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. […]

Following the panel for Home, DreamWorks Animation moved to Penguins of Madagascar. In the upcoming spinoff, the scene-stealing penguins take the lead, and are joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) and his covert team of protective animals as they try to stop Dave (John Malkovich), a malevolent octopus. Even though I’ve never been much for the Madagascar movies, the Penguins have always been wonderful, and I was interested to see if they could carry their own movie. Judging by what they showed us today, they could have one of the funniest films of the year. Hit the jump for my Penguins of Madagascar Comic-Con panel recap. They started off with the teaser trailer, which you can watch below: Panel Highlights: Moderator Craig Ferguson brought on Directors Simon J. Smith, and Eric Darnell, and the voice of Skipper, Tom McGrath. Smith says they’re about 70% finished with the movie. »

Benedict Cumberbatch earned a rapturous reception from the adoring masses in Hall H during his maiden Comic-Con appearance at the DreamWorks Animation panel on Thursday (24) and hinted at future visits.
When asked by an audience member towards the end of the panel – the first by a Hollywood studio at this year’s show – if he would return as Sherlock next year, the British actor said “Possibly.”
To the business at hand. Cumberbatch was in San Diego to talk up his first ever voice role in an animation. He plays Classified, a secret agent wolf who aids the eponymous Penguins Of Madagascar, due out in November.
“I like the idea of unpacking a spy and trying to make him more human, if that makes sense with a wolf,” he said.
Cumberbatch said he jumped at the chance to work with John Malkovich, another Comic-Con debutant in attendance who voices the part of the villainous Dave the octopus.

Bonnie Arnold has had some career. As the latest film she's produced, How To Train Your Dragon 2, arrives in UK cinemas, she chatted to us about the movie, about the big problems making the first, and her earlier days helping to bring Dances With Wolves to light. And she didn't touch a drop of her tea while telling us all of this...
Digging into your background, from what I can tell you started as a writer? Can you fill in some of the blanks there?
Well, it wasn't really a writer as such. I studied journalism, but I actually started in publicity. I did unit publicity writing, so that's how I started really. Really it was in film, film production stuff. But I was writing press releases, »
Munich — The Zurich Film Festival is to honor composer Hans Zimmer with a special lifetime award.

Some of his most recent works include “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “12 Years a Slave,” Ron Howard’s “Rush,” Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” the Christopher Nolan-directed films “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” and Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.”

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is extending invitations to join the organization to 271 artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures.
Those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy’s membership in 2014.
“This year’s class of invitees represents some of the most talented, creative and passionate filmmakers working in our industry today,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “Their contributions to film have entertained audiences around the world, and we are proud to welcome them to the Academy.”
The 2014 invitees are:

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has invited 271 individuals to become members, with the list reflecting the org’s determination to bring more diversity to its ranks.
Every year, the list of invitations includes several recent Oscar nominees. That’s true this year as well, with letters going out Wednesday to a cross-section of people including 2013 contenders Barkhad Abdi, Lupita Nyong’o, Hayao Miyazaki, Pharrell Williams, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, plus such creatives as Megan Ellison, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Steve Coogan, Jason Statham, William Chang Suk Ping, Joan Sobel, Tracey Seaward, Mads Mikkelsen and Chantal Akerman.
Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

The horror-movie genre gets a hilarious makeover when Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie series, White Chicks) and Cedric the Entertainer (Madagascar, The Original Kings of Comedy) star in A Haunted House 2, the outrageous supernatural comedy coming to Blu-ray Combo Pack including Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital HD with UltraViolet on August 12, 2014, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The sequel to the box-office hit A Haunted House, A Haunted House 2 conjures up an otherworldly combination of bone-chilling suspense and no-holds-barred comedy for a raunchy and hysterically funny out-of-body experience.
Having overcome the demons of his past, Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) is ready to start over with his new girlfriend Megan (Jaime Pressly) and her two adorable kids, Wyatt (Steele Stebbins) and Becky (Ashley Rickards). When their house is plagued by a rash of bizarre paranormal events, Malcolm turns for help to his buddy Miguel (Gabriel Iglesias) and exorcist Father Williams (Cedric the Entertainer) in »
It was the attack of the super sequels this past weekend at the North American box office as Sony/MGM's 22 Jump Street beat Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon 2 for the top spot. Both films had big openings and knocked last week's champ, The Fault In Our Stars, from first to fifth place. Thanks to the arrival of these two films, the box office was up 15% over last weekend but still down nine percent from a year ago at this time.
21 Jump Street opened in the spring of 2012 and became a sleeper hit, debuting with a big $36 million en route to a great $132 million final total. Because big box office is what drives sequels as opposed to the need to wrap up or continue a story, a sequel was pretty much a given. With directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller returning to call the shots and stars Jonah Hill »
