Alec Baldwin And Kevin Spacey Will Voice Boss Baby For Dreamworks

30 September 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember that 30 Rock episode when the writers discover that Jack (Alec Baldwin) once recorded himself reciting the dictionary for cash? All of which then wound up on a type-n-speak website? The entire episode’s biggest laughs emanate from the writers’ plugging words into the site which then recites them in his unmistakable voice. That instance alone was enough to land Baldwin some serious voice work all those years back, and he’s certainly Capital One’d the crap out of his marketable tones. So, it only makes sense that he’s now joining forces with another unique vocal talent, Kevin Spacey, for Dreamworks Animation’s next venture: Boss Baby.

The pair are slated to “voice star” in the animated feature, under the direction of Madagascar and Megamind director Tom McGrath. Inspired by the popular children’s book by Marla Frazee, the story sounds like a perfect fit for Baldwin. He »

Tiff 2014 Review: 'Top Five' is Chris Rock's Funniest Movie in Years - If Not Ever

12 September 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

When’s the last time Chris Rock made a funny movie, really? His filmography in recent years has been riddled with mediocrity - the dismal “Grown Ups” franchise, “Madagascar” and its endless sequels. A look at his earlier comedies reveals that while Rock has always been an undeniably funny stand-up comic, paint-by-numbers movies like  “Head of State” and “Down to Earth” failed to really highlight his strengths and his potential as both an actor and comedian. We’ve had a few brief glimpses of another side to Rock as filmmaker and film star - even his 2007 flop “I Think I Love My Wife,” with its many problems, showed the writer/director angling towards a more honest form of comedy.

Chris Rock's Latest Film Might Sell For A Crazy Amount Of Money

7 September 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As successful as Chris Rock's career as a comedian has been, the same can't really be said for him as either a lead actor or a director. Ensemble films like Grown Ups and animated movies like Madagascar have certainly raised his profile, but let's also not forget that his record includes forgettable titles like Down To Earth, Bad Company and Head of State (which he also directed). This history doesn't seem to be causing any studios pause regarding Rock's newest film, however, as the comedy is starting a huge bidding war at the Toronto International Film Festival. News of this in-development deal comes from Deadline, which says that Sony, Paramount, Fox Searchlight, Open Road, A24, Relativity and Lionsgate have all been looking to buy Chris Rock's Top Five, and they're willing to pay top dollar to do so. While the numbers continue to grow, the most recent update »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Top Five’

7 September 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Sometimes a movie is just a movie,” remarks one character early on in Chris Rock’s “Top Five”; but in the case of Rock’s own third turn in the director’s chair, it’s also . After a couple of ambitious but middling first attempts (“Head of State,” “I Think I Love My Wife”), Rock has finally found a big-screen vehicle for himself that comes close to capturing the electric wit, shrewd social observations and deeply autobiographical vein of his standup comedy. At once personal in its sensibilities, yet made with an eye towards reaching a broad, mainstream audience, “Top Five” sparked a well-deserved bidding war following its Toronto premiere, and should soon become a welcome addition to some lucky distrib’s slate.

Whereas Rock turned to French New Wave master Eric Rohmer as the source for “I Love My Wife,” “Top Five” bears the conspicuous influence of classic-era Woody Allen »

Aardman Animation's 'Shaun the Sheep' Gets a Second Teaser Trailer

29 August 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If dry British humor and stop-motion animation make for a cup of tea that you enjoy, then you're probably excited about the forthcoming release of Shaun the Sheep, an adaptation of the popular TV series from across the pond. The first teaser for the film debuted this past spring, and now we get a better idea of the story as Shaun and a bunch of his sheep friends end up stuck in the big city, leaving them with no choice but to find their own way home. However, since this property is far more popular in the United Kingdom, don't expect a release in the United States too quickly, if it even makes it over here at all. Watch the trailer now! Here's the second teaser trailer for Aardman Animation's Shaun the Sheep from the film's YouTube page: Shaun the Sheep is written and directed by Mark Burton (writer of Madagascar, »

It’s been a busy week for Warner Bros. after they dropped the news that they were planning out their DC Cinematic Universe all the way up to 2020. And now, they look to be expanding their Lego universe too.

Already announced, The Lego Movie 2 will be released on May 26th 2017 while its spin-off Ninjago is set for a year earlier on September 23rd 2016.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. are planning to release two more Lego Movies on May 25th 2018 and May 24th 2019. These could both be Lego Movie sequels, but could also be spin-offs to the franchise.

With the announcement of Warner’s DC movie plans and the date change for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in order to not fight against Captain America 3, it should be noted that the 2018 release date puts the movie in competition with DreamWorks’ Madagascar (May 18th) and the as-of-yet »

Benedict Cumberbatch fans will howl for this new 'Penguins of Madagascar' trailer

6 August 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Benedict Cumberbatch's role in "Penguins of Madagascar" may be voice only, but the latest trailer for the forthcoming animated spinoff will probably make his fans howl anyway. The "Sherlock" star's perfect English diction is a sound for sore ears in the new spot for the "Madagascar" spinoff, in which Cumberbatch plays Classified, a wolf who serves as the leader of an "inter-species task force" dedicated to saving the lives of helpless animals. In addition to returning voice stars Tom McGrath (Skipper), Chris Miller (Kowalski), John Dimaggio (Rico) and Christopher Knights (Private), the film also features the aural talents of John Malkovich as villainous octopus Dr. Octavius Brine (a.k.a Dave). Will Cumberbatch fanatics show up for the film even though the actor himself never appears on screen? Check out the trailer below, then let us know what you think in the comments.

‘Penguins Of Madagascar’ Gets A New Trailer

6 August 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The best part of all three Madagascar films return in their own spin-off. Those devilishly sly penguins reveal themselves to be secret agents and must team up with a new and technologically advanced espionage team known as The North Wind in order to stop an evil Octopus known as Dave. The film has brought in some respectable talent to fill out the supporting roles, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Classified and John Malkovich as the normal named villain. Despite being a huge fan of the penguins as characters, as well as loving penguins in general, the trailer doesn’t have too many laughs, but a lot of that may be down to my feelings toward the general plot. The shift into espionage territory is more suited here than it was for Cars 2, but the animals have become almost too anthropomorphic. It almost feels as though humans don’t exist in this world, »
