Sing: new trailer for Garth Jennings' animated singing contest

15 February 2016 10:26 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Nov 3, 2016

The studio behind the Despicable Me films is bringing Garth Jennings' Sing to life. Here's the latest trailer...

Now this looks a hoot. We rewatched director Garth Jennings' terrific Son Of Rambow recently, and if you've not had the pleasure, it's very much worth seeking out. But for Jennings' next project - and he previously helmed The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - he's got an animated film for us.

It's from Illumination Entertainment, the outfit behind the Despicable Me and Minions films. And this new venture is called Sing. Jennings also penned the script for this one, about a music competition with talking animals. It's due in cinemas in the Us at Christmas, although we don't get it over here until January. But still, we've got a new trailer for it, as well as the synopsis for the film...

As tradition dictates, let's do them in that order. »

Illumination Entertainment have scored hits with "Despicable Me" and spinoff "Minions," and in 2016 they are hoping to knock two out of the park. "The Secret Life Of Pets" hits this summer, with the studio betting on animated cats and dogs packing 'em in (and to be fair, it does look kinda of cute). And then this holiday, they're want to make you "Sing."

Alan Rickman dies at 69 by Amber Wilkinson - 2016-01-14 13:20:20

Alan Rickman introducing A Little Chaos at Glasgow Film Festival Photo: Eoin Carey British actor Alan Rickman has died in London, aged 69. He had been suffering from cancer. The much-loved star began his career on stage and television before going on to create a number of memorable characters on screen.

He particularly became known for his ability to play bad guys, with roles including Hans Gruber in Die Hard, the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves - for which he won a supporting actor BAFTA - and Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films. Many of his villainous roles also allowed him to display his comic timing, a skill that also led him to provide the voice of Marvin the Paranoid Android in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and mock his own Rada Shakespearean training in 1999 space spoof Galaxy Quest.

He was far from typecast, however, »

R.I.P. Alan Rickman

14 January 2016 4:11 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

2016 has gotten off to a brutal start for great British entertainers. As the world gets over the death of David Bowie a few days ago, it has been set in shock again as acting legend Alan Rickman has died in London.

Rickman had been suffering from cancer and his death was confirmed on Thursday by his family. It's the worst kind of coincidence - Bowie and Rickman were 69 years old and passed after battling cancer, and a week before that British musician Lemmy also passed away from cancer just days after turning 70.

Rickman's distinct features and immediately identifiable diction were admired by generations of actors and made him synonymous with playing antagonists - something he famously wasn't a fan of as he preferred to play the dashing leading man role which he did manage to do in some of his work.

Coming to fame with a key role in The BBC's mini-series "The Barchester Chronicles, »
