The box-office performance of 2006's Ice Age: The Meltdown got Chris Meledandri thinking. Domestically, the animated sequel about prehistoric mammals did only a little more business than the 2002 original ($195.3 million versus $176.4 million), but in the international market, it soared, more than doubling the take of the first film ($465.6 million versus $206.9 million). Meledandri, then president of 20th Century Fox Animation, credited the studio's widely acknowledged strength in global marketing and distribution for some of that increase but was convinced there had to be a further explanation.
"I was trying to figure out why it overperformed internationally," »

The film will chart the story of a teenage boy who is magically transported to a far-away land where he must ward off a mean-spirited wizard called The Grump.
Based on a script from Ice Age: The Meltdown screenwriter Jim Hecht, with designs by Craig Kellman (character designer on both Madagascar and Hotel Transylvania), the project is adapted from the animated cartoon TV series by Mirisch-Geoffrey Depatie-Freleng Enterprises, makers of the Pink Panther series.
“Animation is well underway and the film will be completed in the first part of 2017. Our artists are pushing the limits to put as much quality and humor into every last frame,” said Greg Gavanski »

From Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment, Ratchet & Clank is a CG-animated movie based on the iconic PlayStation video game. Two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy "lombax" who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn.
When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one's own identity. Two new clips from the movie have debuted fresh from WonderCon, which is happening in Los Angeles as we speak.

It's been quite some time since we've seen any footage from Ratchet & Clank, with our last glimpse coming with the second trailer released way back in October. Now that we're getting closer and closer to the April 29 release, Playstation Nation has unveiled two new TV spots, which showcases the transforming powers of a weapon known as 'The Sheepinator.' As you might have guessed, this crazy ray gun turns its targets into sheep. We're not quite sure how exactly that's useful, but The Sheepinator was a popular weapon used in the Playstation video game series this animated movie is based on.
The story centers on the title characters, Ratchet (James Arnold Taylor) and Clank (David Kaye), two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek (Paul Giamatti) from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy "lombax" who has »
If you’ve a mind to listen to officials from up and down the east coast this weekend (Mayor Bill de Blasio, for one, insists New Yorkers stay indoors through Saturday and Sunday’s projected blizzard), then this weekend is the perfect time to grab your roommate, a bottle (or two) of wine, and movie marathon your way straight through to Monday morning. For your viewing pleasure, we’ve rounded up the best of Netflix's January 2016 movie releases, in all featuring six excellent performances from the likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Anna Kendrick, and Tilda Swinton. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait until Jan. 28 to catch “Frozen Planet” (though you have “Ice Age: The Meltdown” to tide you over till then). Stay safe and warm out there, and happy watching! 1. “Along Came Polly” Sure, the chemistry between Jennifer Aniston and Ben Stiller as this comedy's central odd couple is tepid, »
