This is true in America, where companies like the Asylum have built an entire business model around making movies that look just similar enough to major blockbusters to confuse grandparents and stoners. However, it’s especially true on the international stage, where scrappy filmmakers all over […]

Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

99 Homes (Ramin Bahrani)

Jumanji Remake Teams Jack Black with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart

11 May 2016 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Dwayne Johnson revealed on social media that he just had a meeting with Jumanji director Jake Kasdan and producer Matt Tolmach to discuss the remake, confirming his role in the movie. Now we have word that another actor has joined the cast, with comedian Jack Black signing on as an unspecified character. The actor will join Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, and there are still two major roles left to be cast.

The Wrap broke the news on Jack Black's casting, but no details have been given in regards to whom he'll be playing. Dwayne Johnson chimed in on the casting himself through his Instagram page, teasing that fans will "understand" who his character is when it's revealed. Take a look at the actor's statement that he posted just an hour ago.

Jack Black in Talks to Join Dwayne Johnson in ‘Jumanji’

11 May 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jack Black is in negotiations to join Dwayne Johnson in Sony Pictures’ new re-imagining of the classic children’s book “Jumanji.” Jake Kasdan is on board to direct with Matt Tolmach producing.

Variety also broke the news that Kevin Hart was in talks to star. Sources indicate that his deal is still being worked out.

The pic is set to bow on July 28, 2017.

William Teitler is also producing with Ted Field, Mike Weber and Johnson, Dany Garcia and Van Allsburg are executive producing. Principal photography is expected to start this August in Honolulu.

The reboot’s script has been written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, based on a draft by the original writers, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.

Goosebumps Star Jack Black Circling Jumanji Reboot With Dwayne Johnson

11 May 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dwayne Johnson teased earlier in the week that casting announcements for Sony Pictures’ Jumanji reboot were imminent and sure enough, The Wrap is reporting that Goosebumps and Kung Fu Panda star Jack Black is in negotiations to land a role in Jake Kasdan’s (Bad Teacher, Sex Tape) long-rumored reboot.

Details of Black’s role are being kept under lock and key for now, but Dwayne Johnson did hint that the adventure flick – set to be based once again on Chris Van Allsburg’s inimitable 1981 novel – will revolve around a cast of five characters, as opposed to the trio that stole hearts back in 1995.

As a matter of fact, in ensuring fans are kept in the loop via Instagram, Johnson himself revealed that Sony’s Jumanji will commemorate the late, great Robin Williams in some shape or form, who rolled the dice as Alan Parrish all those years ago.

First Trolls Clip Introduces the Cloud Guy

11 May 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing this week, with DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox hitting the Croisette to debut new footage from their animated feature Trolls, arriving in theaters November 4. For those who aren't at the film festival in France, the studio has released a first look clip from the movie, featuring Justin Timberlake's Branch and Anna Kendrick's Poppy meeting a new friend. It's been several months since the first trailer arrived in January, so hopefully we'll be getting a second trailer very soon.

From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny and irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks' Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach. »

Mystery Chinese Firm That Bid for DreamWorks Animation Has Been Identified

10 May 2016 4:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before it turned to a bigger, beefier offer from Comcast, DreamWorks Animation talked to the Chinese private-equity firm Pag Asia Capital about a buyout that would have taken the cartoon studio private, a source familiar with the talks confirmed.

Pag quickly faded into the background once the U.S. conglomerate trained its sights — and, eventually, a $3.8 billion all-cash offer — on the Glendale-based maker of films like “Shrek,” “Kung Fu Panda” and “Madagascar.” The Chinese investment firm came nowhere close to the Comcast offer, which amounted to a 51% premium for DreamWorks.

The private-equity firm’s website describes it as “one of Asia’s largest alternative investment management firms” and says it has $15 billion under management. It recently joined with Apex Technology to the American printer company Lexmark International for $2.5 billion. Pag’s chief executive, Weijian Shan, previously held the position of partner in the U.S. investment firm Tpg.

‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Helps DreamWorks Animation Earnings Beat Projections

5 May 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kung Fu Panda 3” and growth in its television business powered first quarter earnings at DreamWorks Animation, helping the film studio beat Wall Street projections.

Revenues climbed 14.4% to $190.4 million and the Glendale, Calif., studio reported a net profit of $13.8 million, as opposed to the $54.8 million loss it recorded a year ago. It also logged earnings of 16 cents a share. Analysts expected the company to announce earnings of a cent per share and revenue of $183 million for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters.

The robust fiscal picture emerges roughly a week after news broke that Comcast had reached a deal to acquire DreamWorks Animation for $4.1 billion in cash and debt assumption. The media conglomerate, which owns NBCUniversal, hopes to create a family film empire to rival Disney’s. It already backs Illumination Entertainment, the creator of the “Despicable Me” franchise.

Jennifer Yuh Nelson: Creative Impact in Animation Honoree Thrives on Action

5 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like the hero of the “Kung Fu Panda” franchise to which she has dedicated the last 12 years of her life, Jennifer Yuh Nelson believes in destiny.

Born in South Korea, the star DreamWorks Animation director moved to California when she was 4 years old. Raised by a family of artists, Yuh Nelson and her sisters sketched constantly, telling stories with pictures and holding competitive “draw-offs” around the coffee table. A quick learner, she picked up English — and a lifelong appetite for kung fu — in three months by watching TV, mostly cartoons and action movies.

“I’ve been watching things like ‘Master of the Flying Guillotine’ since I was 5,” says Yuh Nelson, referring to the bloody wuxia classic — not at all suitable for young viewers — in which an assassin roams the countryside decapitating his victims with a boomerang-style blade.

Now, nearly four decades later, Yuh Nelson is the custodian of the most »
