If you were wondering whether there would be any 3D computer-animated films in theaters two years from now, we’ve got your answer. Today, Dreamworks Animation Skg, Inc. announced its new original project, Me and My Shadow, is slated to hit screens in March 2013.
Me and My Shadow tells the story of Shadow Stan, a frustrated shadow who dreams of leading an exciting life. Unfortunately, he’s stuck trailing Stanley Grubb, the most boring man in the world. When he can’t stand his dull existence one second longer, he breaks the only rule of the shadow world, “They lead, we follow,” and takes direct control of Grubb.
Dreamworks is using this film to pioneer what it calls a “groundbreaking” combination of seamlessly blended computer-generated and traditional animation techniques in 3D. The studio impressed us this year with How to Train Your Dragon, so it’s safe to assume Me »

DreamWorks Animation dropped off a press release this morning announcing a new 3D animated film called Me and My Shadow. There's no voice cast yet, but the plot will follow "Shadow Stan, an extremely frustrated shadow who yearns for a dynamic life but happens to be stuck with Stanley Grubb, the world's most boring human. Finally pushed to the brink, Shadow Stan breaks the singular rule of the Shadow World ("They lead, we follow"), and takes control of Stanley!" More information about the forces behind the film is after the break. Here's the hook: the film will be a mix of CG and "traditional animation techniques." I can't say it any better than the press release did, so let's cut and paste: Mark Dindal (Chicken Little, The Emperor's New Groove) is the film's director and Melissa Cobb (Kung Fu Panda, Kung Fu Panda 2) and Teresa Cheng (Shrek Forever After, »

Before the stars were stars, they were normal people trying to make a living. Every penny they made was spent on rent and food, not stylists and clothing. That’s why it’s so awesome to see celebrity before-and-after shots: getting a glimpse of what J.Lo looked like with crazy eyebrows or when Alec Baldwin was just a sliver of his current self. We wanted to honor some of our finest actors and performers by going back in time—back to when no one could bother to get their clothes tailored, they were too cheap to use anything but boxed hair color, and the word “stylist” didn’t even exist in Hollywood. Some of these people are a victim of the era from whence they came, but others have no excuse. The important thing to remember: these people had a choice about how to dress, and these are the outfits they chose. »

Update: Director Jon Favreau says his upcoming film about Disneyland Magic Kingdom, will Not be like A Night at the Museum. Favreau (Elf, Zathura, Iron Man 1 and 2) said on Sirius Satellite Radio's "Geektime!" that the storyline would be about a family in Disneyland who bring the attractions to life, but, "I don’t think it’s going to be mixing all the other movies. I think it’s going to be its own thing; I don’t think it will be like Night of the Museum. I want to make it a little bit spookier like the old Disney movies were and try to really capture that tone.
"This is something that I’ve always been drawn to and now to say ‘What characters do you want to use and how do you not make it Space Jam or like the Christmas parade with every character?’ How do you show »

The 2010 FIFA World Cup made waves this past summer when several of the games were broadcast entirely in 3D to launch Espn's 3D channel. The broadcast was a landmark event for 3D adoption into homes then and now the World Cup's official film becomes the first sporting event available on the new Blu-ray 3D format.
Running a brisk 64 minutes and only viewable in 3D, The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Film intersperses several large international news agency press member retrospective interviews with a chronological progression through the tournament's round robin stage, elimination rounds and the finals. There is a slight bias towards African teams being they were the host country and Uruguay coach Diego Maradona eating up the spotlight, big topics in the media when the World Cup originally aired. The film still manages to hit all the high notes including spending a sizable chunk of time on Ghana's amazing run »

The Complete Metropolis Correction: Only the DVD edition comes out this week. The Blu-ray will be released next week.
I have the Blu-ray edition of this, but haven't had the time to watch it yet, but will over the next couple of days and hope to have a review for you shortly. It will be interesting to return to this film considering the first time I watched it was back in 2007 when there was talk of a remake in the works and I posted my first impression of the film. And this is a film that makes one hell of an impression.
However, I haven't seen it since then so it's going to be a little more difficult for me to form an opinion on the 25 minutes of new footage, since I am not overly familiar with the film in the first place. »

Saturday TV ratings: Take That reunion doc draws 5 million
I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! rolled back the years with more than 11 million viewers for the 10th series launch yesterday, Sunday 14 November – the show's best ever opening night figures.
A celebrity lineup including Nigel Havers, Britt Ekland, Linford Christie, Shaun Ryder, Gillian McKeith and Lembit Opik helped the show average 11.224 million viewers and a 41.2% audience share across ITV1 and ITV1 HD from 9pm. ITV1 HD's share of this audience was 866,000 (3.2%).

It would be awesome to be one of Iron Man director Jon Favreau's kids for the next few months -- they're going to be spending a lot of time at Disneyland. That's because their dad has been hired to figure out how to turn the theme park into a movie called The Magic Kingdom. The idea is to use the locations, rides and characters within the Magic Kingdom similar to how the Smithsonian was utilized in Night at the Museum so Daffy Duck, Buzz Lightyear and Jessica Rabbit could theoretically be dodging headhunters on the Jungle Cruise. Strike Entertainment (Flash of Genius) is developing the project for Disney.
Disney has been exploring this for a while, originally brought to them through the book series "Kingdom Keepers" in which a bunch of Florida teenagers are turned into holographic guides who have to fight Maleficent as the park's characters come to life. »

Sony once again taps their animated Blu-ray vault for 3D repurposing with Open Season and like Monster House and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs before it, serves up another winning three-dimensional showcase for the youthful Blu-ray 3D format.
Martin Lawrence as a pampered domesticated bear, Boog, and Ashton Kutcher as his unfortunate and unwelcome deer comic sidekick, Elliot, are the anchors for this nature's version of leaving the safety of one's roost the first time. Each is recognizable in their roles and gives some pretty stale dialogue a little extra oomph with an admirable energetic effort. The one-dimensional story is never really compelling or all that interesting and this duo's jokes, of which there are many, are fairly low brow and often struggle to hit the mark with the exception of a clever Austin Powers-inspired curtain silhouette debacle.
Open Season connected with enough kids to spawn a pair of direct-to-video sequels. »

Gordon Gekko proved to still be a commodity after all of these years, but the weekend closing bell rang on a bearish note for upstarts Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole and You Again. Overall business was up three percent over the same weekend last year, when Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was on top. After greedily acquiring approximately 5,100 screens at 3,565 locations, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps accrued an estimated $19 million, which was above par for an adult-oriented drama but relatively modest for the scope of its release. On-the-money comparables are hard to come by, but the Wall Street sequel's first weekend gross was close to Burn After Reading and nearly twice as much as The Informant! and Michael Clayton. The first Wall Street debuted nearly 23 years ago and earned $4.1 million its first weekend, or the equivalent of double that adjusted for ticket-price inflation, but it played »
