Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff, Analeigh Tipton, Ashley Greene and Ahna O’Reilly join James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

18 March 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With principal photography now underway, it has been announced that Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Zach Braff (Garden State), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Ashley Greene (Twilight) and Ahna O’Reilly (The Help) have joined the cast of James Franco’s John Steinbeck adaptation In Dubious Battle.

The five new additions join an all-star cast alongside Franco, Selena Gomez (Hotel Transylvania), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Robert Duvall (The Judge), Ed Harris (Snowpiercer), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and John Savage (The Deer Hunter).

Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man— all themes which continue to be relevant today. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures »

Genndy Tartakovsky departs Popeye animated film

15 March 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Genndy Tartakovsky has left Sony's animated Popeye.

The Hotel Transylvania director shared the news with MovieFone, citing studio "changes" as being behind the split.

He said: "Popeye, at least, we put up a great screening, everybody really liked that sizzle, we got a positive reaction.

"I was in love with what we were doing, but I think the studio is going through changes and I don't know if they want to make the Popeye that I want to make. So they've got to make a decision."

He continued: "Right now, I'm off that project and moving on to the other one that we soft-announced, which is Can You Imagine? which is an original idea of my own and a very personal story. It was hard to let Popeye go, but that's the business."

In 2014, Sony Pictures released some test footage from the CGI film, alongside comments from Tartakovsky.

Genndy Tartakovsky Departs Sony's CGI Popeye

15 March 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Bad news for anyone anticipating Samurai Jack/Hotel Transylvania director Genndy Tartakovsky bringing his life-long Popeye obsession to fruition at Sony Pictures Animation: he’s no longer involved. Tartakovsky has announced that he’s off the project and will focus on other films for the studio. It’s something of a surprise, given his feelings for the character, proudly shown off as part of a test footage demonstration last year (see above). It sounds, though, as if studio politics and creative disagreements got in the way. “I was in love with what we were doing, but I think the studio is going through changes and I don’t know if they want to make the Popeye that I want to make,” he says. “So they’ve got to make a decision. Right now, I’m off that project and moving on to the other one that we soft-announced, which is Can You Imagine? »

Dracula takes a leap of faith in Hotel Transylvania 2 teaser trailer

14 March 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dracula takes a leap of faith in the first teaser trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2.

The sequel to 2012's animated comedy sees Dracula (Adam Sandler) relax his monster-only policy for the Hotel Transylvania and welcome human guests.

While half-human half-monster grandson Johnny's parents are away, Grandpa Dracula puts him through a monster boot camp with the help of friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin (Kevin James, Keegan-Michael Key, Steve Buscemi and David Spade).

Things then get crazier as Dracula's father Vlad (Mel Brooks) turns up for an unexpected visit.

Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Fran Drescher and Molly Shannon also voice characters in the sequel.

2012's Hotel Transylvania earned about $360 million (£228m) at the global box office, and also earned a Golden Globe nomination.

Hotel Transylvania 2 is released in the Us on September 25 and in the UK on October 9. »

Hotel Transylvania 2 Trailer – Drac Is Back

13 March 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Hotel Transylvania was a largely under-appreciated movie, but it seems to have managed to gain a following since it first came out. Put that together with the fact that the trailer paints a good picture, and Hotel Transylvania 2 should be able to get the attention it probably deserves.

Of course, this is just a bit of a teaser, that doesn’t let us into a lot of detail, but with the general idea of Drac concerned that his grandson isn’t “vampire-y” enough, it should be a lot of fun.

Check out the trailer, and don’t miss this one.

'Popeye' Movie Loses Director; May Get Canceled at Sony

13 March 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sad news for anyone eagerly anticipating the CGI animated Popeye movie that was being planned at Sony. Director Genndy Tartakovsky, best known for his Samurai Jack TV show and the 2012 hit Hotel Transylvania, is no longer with the project. Not only that, it may no longer be happening at Sony.

Genndy Tartakovsky's next project is Hotel Transylvania 2, which comes to theaters this fall. The first teaser trailer was released earlier in the week, with Moviefone speaking to the director. Even though an animation test for Popeye was met with enthusiasm, the recent regime change at Sony has seen production on the high seas adventure come to a halt. He explains:

"Popeye we put up a great screening, everybody really liked that sizzle, we got a positive reaction. I was in love with what we were doing, but I think the studio is going through changes and I don't »

CG-Animated 'Popeye' Movie Loses Its Director

13 March 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm not certain a CG-animated Popeye movie, or any Popeye movie for that matter, would be much of a hit with today's movie-going audience. Yet, Sony Animation seemed to be all aboard to the point they hired Genndy Tartakovsky (Hotel Transylvania) to direct and even released a sizzle reel back in September, offering a first look at the film as you see above. Now, in an interview with Moviefone, Tartakovsky reveals all isn't well with the film: Popeye, at least, we put up a great screening, everybody really liked that sizzle, we got a positive reaction. I was in love with what we were doing, but I think the studio is going through changes and I don't know if they want to make the Popeye that I want to make. So they've got to make a decision.
