139 movie sequels currently in the works

18 June 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Top 20 Most Profitable Movies That Are Terrible

25 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Movies that make money don’t always do so because they’re good. Here’s our list of underwhelming movies that happened to overwhelm the box office.

While the box office is a good, general representation of the popularity of a film, it is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Yes, it is true that most of the highest grossing movies have also received favorable reviews from critics and audiences alike, that’s often what makes them a hit, but there are some exceptions. This is a list of those exceptions. This is a list of those movies that did spectacularly well at the box office, but ended up being an inferior product.

So why would so many people want to see a terrible film? Why would they waste their hard-earned money and fleeting free time? The answer is actually pretty simple. Many of these films share a lot of common traits. »

Why Pricey, Offbeat Pics Didn’t Pay Off For DreamWorks Animation

22 January 2015 5:53 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Any good news for DreamWorks Animation at the 2014 global box office came at an exorbitant cost. While the toon studio’s slate was up 36% over last year at the global B.O. with $1.18B across three movies — Mr. Peabody & Sherman, How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Penguins Of Madagascar, productions costs for DreamWorks Animation surged 56% over 2013 with an estimated $422M, the second highest in the studio’s history since 2010, when it shelled out $460M for a three pic-slate that included Shrek Forever After, How To Train Your Dragon and Mega Mind (total global B.O. $1.57B) under its distribution deal with Paramount. And not only were budgets up, but the three of the five titles that Dwa delivered to its distrib partner 20th Century Fox during the past two years haven’t been the mass-appealing, humorous titles that the animation studio has built its brand upon — How to Train Your Dragon 2 »

22 January 2015 3:19 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

As part of its restructuring announced today, DreamWorks Animation will be shutting down Pdi/DreamWorks, its computer animation production company in Redwood City, CA. Half of Pdi’s 450 workers will lose their jobs; the others will be offered positions at the Dwa campus in Glendale.

DreamWorks Animation acquired a 40% stake in Pacific Data Images in 1995 and completed the buyout following the success of 1998’s Antz, renaming the company Pdi/DreamWorks. It would go on to produce Shrek, Shrek 2, Madagascar, Shrek The Third, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and Penguins Of Madagascar. Shrek won the first Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2002, and How to Train Your Dragon 2 has been nominated this year.

Mandy Patinkin To Voice Papa Smurf

16 January 2015 5:45 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Homeland" star Mandy Patinkin is set to voice Papa Smurf in Sony Pictures Animation's upcoming reboot of its "The Smurfs" franchise.

The new film will ditch the CG 'Smurfs in our contemporary world' setting in favor of a fully animated project that sticks closer to the original cartoon and designs by creator Peyo.

The project will also give a new origin story to the Smurfs. Though the wise paternal leader of the creatures, that will not always be the case with this Papa Smurf.

Kelly Asbury ("Gnomeo and Juliet," "Shrek the Third") is directing from a script by "Over The Hedge" scribes Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche. An August 5th 2016 release date is being targeted.

'Smurfs' Reboot Gets Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf

16 January 2015 2:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures Animation has brought on Homeland star Mandy Patinkin to voice Papa Smurf in their Untitled Smurfs Movie. Unlike 2011's The Smurfs and 2013's The Smurfs 2, which were live action/CGI animation hybrids, this Smurfs project will be fully animated, sticking closer to the original designs by creator Peyo. The project will give a new origin story to the Smurfs, and, while Papa Smurf is supposed to be "the wise paternal leader" of these tiny blue creatures, that will not always be the case.

Jonathan Winters voiced Papa Smurf in The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2, with Don Messick voicing the character in the original Smurfs animated TV series. Kelly Asbury (Gnomeo and Juliet, Shrek the Third) is directing from a script by Karey Kirkpatrick (The Secret World of Arrietty, Over The Hedge) and Chris Poche (Over The Hedge). Jordan Kerner is producing with Mary Ellen Bauder serving as co-producer. »
