Annecy: Jordi Gasull on ‘Tadeo Jones 2,’ One of Spain’s Biggest New Animation Bets

12 June 2017 10:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annecy, France —  “Tad the Lost Explorer” marked a milestone in Spain’s animation industry, which is long on talent, short on governmental support, consolidating the backing of Spain’s powerful private broadcasters – here, via Mediaset España’s Telecinco Cinema – as well as Telefonica for select, higher-end Spanish animated features. It demonstrated what Mediaset España’s muscular marketing machine could do with a movie which merited its marketing. Directed by Enrique Gato, it won three Spanish Academy Goyas – best animated feature, new director and, notably, original screenplay. And it grossed about $50 million worldwide, half outside its native Spain, sparking a two-picture Paramount Pictures worldwide distribution deal on its creators’ next two features, “Capture the Flag” and “Tadeo Jones 2, and the Secret of King Midas.” And it turned its hero, the chinless Chicago bricklayer Tad, an amateur adventurer-archeologist and kind of cack-handed Indiana Jones, into a social phenomenon in Spain.

A Monkey on a mission to save his planet in trailer for Spark

27 April 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The movie Spark has a teen Monkey and his friends in an intergalactic battle. It sounds like this is verging on the ridiculous but let’s go with it anyway, it is an animation after all and it has some pretty decent names attached too. Let’s give the trailer a whirl below.

In a world which looks to be inhabited by Monkeys, Foxes and Hogs, we find Spark and his friends hiding out in an underground bunker after the planet was destroyed by the evil Monkey Zhong. Spark wants to stop being treated as a kid so he can join his friends on a mission to save the world from Zhong’s evil plan. Obviously, this loony animation is aimed at an audience no older than the age of five.

Spark features the voices of Patrick StewartSusan Sarandon, Jessica Biel and Hilary Swank in this »
