First Look: Sony Animation's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

9 December 2008 5:27 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Ever since Sony Animation's Surf's Up bombed at the box office last summer, they've been rather quiet, working in secret on their next feature animation project called Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. The story in the movie, which is based on the children's book of the same name, follows a scientist who ties to solve world hunger but encounters a problem of global proportions, as food begins to fall from the sky. Thanks to Cinema Blend today, we've got our very first look at the style of the characters in the movie, and some giant ice cream in the background as well. Will it be a big Pixar contender? I highly doubt it... Providing their voices for the film are Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, James Caan, Tracy Morgan, and two special guests, Mr. T and Bruce Campbell. Check out the photo and stay tuned for more. Cloudy »

Big Screen Bears

2 October 2008 3:59 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

We just love bears here at ComicMix. Be it real bears, scary bears, Gummi Bears or Care Bears, we can't get enough of these furry fellas! That's why we're pleased as punch to report that two famous bears are coming to a big screen near you.

Up first, Warner Bros. has announced a live-action feature version of Yogi Bear, based on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon. Ash Brannon (Surf's Up) is attached to direct, while Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia (Tooth Fairy, executive producers on That 70's Show) are writing the screenplay. The film is said to be a live-action/animated hybrid along the lines of the recent Alvin and the Chipmunks. Yogi, who first appeared on The Huckleberry Hound Show before launching his own series in 1961, will be done in CG alongside his sidekick, Boo Boo. The majority of the film will be shot in live action.

Yogi Bear Gets the Big Screen Treatment -- No, I'm Not Kidding.

2 October 2008 3:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Sometimes I oooh over talk of re-energizing an old franchise; sometimes I cringe and sometimes, like today, my brow is so damned furrowed that I probably have about 20 new wrinkles. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Warner Bros. is going back to Yogi Bear and YellowJellystone Park.

Oh yes, the Hanna-Barbera classic is getting developed into a big-screen feature by the pens of Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, with Ash Brannon attached to direct. That means a mixture of That 70's Show exec producers and the co-writer and director of Surf's Up. It will be live-action with a CG Yogi and Boo Boo.

Now sure, the chipmunks made a comeback, but at least they have an uber popular Christmas song that keeps them in the memory banks. Something like Speed Racer had the effects going for it. Will kids go wild for a character from the '50s that gets into good-natured fun at a park? »

Yogi and Boo-Boo Ditch Jellystone Park for Hollywood

2 October 2008 1:23 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The news today that the classic "Yogi Bear" cartoon is headed for the big screen via a mix of live-action and CGI is accompanied with a lot of 'not's'. As in, this not surprising, given the recent, similar productions of Alvin and the Chipmunks and Garfield; this is not very interesting to me; and this is not a good idea, because the live-action/CGI transformation from a flat cartoon never really seems to work well. But obviously, Warner Bros. saw the $360 million earned worldwide with Chipmunks and decided to mine its own inventory of classic cartoons. Yogi Bear is certainly a character that is lost on much of the youth today, so I suppose extending the character to that audience is the silver-lining here. Ash Brannon, who co-directed both Toy Story 2 and the Shia Labeouf-voiced Surf's Up, is set to direct with a couple of folks from "That »

Jellystone Park Goes Live-Action

2 October 2008 5:50 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I have as many fond memories of Yogi the Bear as anyone else does, but I've always preferred him in his hand-drawn, 10-minute-long adventures rather than anything drawn-out or, God forbid, live-action. But I don't make movies, and Yogi isn't exactly pulling in millions of dollars in re-runs, so of course, he and Boo-Boo will be stealing picnic baskets on the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter announced that Surf's Up director Ash Brannon will be in charge of the movie, with the writers of the new Rock movie The Tooth Fairy, Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, writing the screenplay. The movie will be inspired by last year's surprise hit Alvin and the Chipmunks, and that information alone should be enough to scare you. Human characters will get to take part in the fun, while Yogi and Boo-Boo will remain animated. »

Yogi, Boo-Boo headed to big time

1 October 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

New York -- Warner Bros. is taking a trip to Jellystone Park.

The studio is developing a feature version of "Yogi Bear," the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, and "Surf's Up" co-helmer/co-writer Ash Brannon is attached to direct.

Endeavor-repped Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, who exec produced "That '70s Show" and are writing the feature "Tooth Fairy" for Fox, are penning the screenplay. Donald De Line is producing via his De Line Pictures; Karen Rosenfelt is also producing, with Jon Berg overseeing for Warners.

The project, culled from Warners' vast library, is planned as a live-action/animated hybrid along the lines of Fox's 2007 hit "Alvin & the Chipmunks." Much of the movie will be live-action, but Yogi Bear and sidekick Boo Boo will be done in CG.

Yogi Bear first appeared as a supporting character in 1958 in another classic cartoon, "The Huckleberry Hound Show." In 1961, he got his own show, which has »

Who's the Next Big Male Movie Star?

29 September 2008 1:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Can anyone catch up to this cool cat? With Shia Labeouf's Eagle Eye taking the top spot at the box-office this weekend it makes four-in-a-row for the actor (not counting the animated Surf's Up) and it made me wonder if the 22-year-old is our next big time actor or if it's just a case of him starring in the right film at the right time that has made his films so popular leaving the title of "The Next Big Thing" up for grabs. Let's face it, Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull were going to make big bucks no matter what, Shia had very little, if anything, to do with their success. One could make the argument that Disturbia opened during a very weak time in 2007 and that accounts for its three week box-office domination with rather modest numbers, winning that third weekend with barely over $9 million. »

Sony Pictures took this year off from animation after releasing OPEN SEASON and SURF'S UP in 2006 and 2007 respectively. But that doesn't mean that they're giving up on animation altogether. Sony is moving ahead with their 2010 release CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, a 3-D adaptation of the bestselling children's book and has set the voice cast. Anna Faris, Bill Hader, James Caan, Andy Samberg, Bruce Campbell (!!), Mr. T (!!!!!) and Tracy Morgan have all joined the cast of the film. »

Review of the deliciously adult animated flick FILM NOIR

18 September 2008 12:18 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Year: 2007

Directors: D. Jud Jones / Risto Topaloski

Writers: D. Jud Jones

IMDB: link

Trailer: link

Review by: agentorange

Rating: 8 out of 10

Its nice to know that not everyone is content to live in a world where the only American animation worth getting excited about involves rats that cook or jive talkin' hippos (and I don't care how cute those penguins are, Surf's Up is little else than a noisy, irritating mess). Indeed, with its violent tendencies, cast of bawdy sexual deviants, and roots in the hard-boiled detective genre, D. Jud Jones' Film Noir is a deliciously adult affair - and comes across all the better for it. This is noir American style. Dark after hours streets with gun totting thugs around every corner, sexy dames and, more importantly, that great American tradition, the story about a guy with amnesia.

Right away the story of Film Noir sucks you in. »

Movie Review: Kung Fu Panda

Jun 08, 2008   Review by Brian Tallerico

 

There's been an interesting trend in CGI animated films over the last few years - they've become commonplace. The "wow" factor has worn off as each summer has seen more and more throwaway animated films like The Ant Bully, Open Season, and Surf's Up. Despite occasional advancements in technology, the repetition in the storytelling has bred mediocrity. On that note, there's nothing that wrong with Kung Fu Panda, but, considering this genre's potential to blow our ...Read more at MovieRetriever.com »

Kung Fu Panda

5 June 2008 2:55 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Over the last decade, the outpouring of Pixar-imitating Cgi comedies about wacky mismatched animal pals (The Wild, Madagascar, Over The Hedge, Shark Tale, Surf's Up, Ice Age, Chicken Little, Open Season, etc.) has occasionally felt like the output of an infinite number of monkeys at an infinite number of typewriters, all banging out more or less the same thing. But as in the famous thought experiment, the infinite typing monkeys may have finally produced their Hamlet, or at least as close to one as the genre will allow. Kung Fu Panda is yet another celebrity-voiced animal adventure, but it stands out from the crowd of similar films with its lightning wit and whirlwind brio. Jack Black voices the eponymous character, a fat, gluttonous panda named Po, who labors joylessly in his father's noodle shop (his dad is a goose, for some reason) while obsessing over the world of »
