Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which […]

A huge variety of new trailers dropped this week, and they all look crazy good. There’s everything from new Dwayne Johnson to John Krasinski’s directorial debut to a Hugh Jackman musical. Read on to get the best of this week’s trailers!

We firstly want to mention the first trailer for Rampage, based on the ‘80s arcade game of the same name and starring Dwayne Johnson. The Rock plays a scientist-type who finds himself battling horrifically mutated giant animals, including the albino gorilla he rescued from the wild. This is 100% as wild as it sounds, and we honestly think the trailer speaks for itself. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Naomie Harris also star. Catch Rampage in Cineplex theatres April 20th.

‘Samurai Jack’ Creator Genndy Tartakovsky On Putting Sex and Violence Into the Fifth Season

‘Samurai Jack’ Creator Genndy Tartakovsky On Putting Sex and Violence Into the Fifth Season
After Genndy Tartakovsky’s cult animated series “Samurai Jack” was canceled by Cartoon Network in 2004, rumors swirled for years about a feature-length adaptation. Tartakovsky worked with four different studios to adapt his hyper-stylized blend of martial arts and sci-fi action for the big screen, including New Line, Sony and J.J. AbramsBad Robot, but none of them panned out. “As soon as we started developing it as a movie, they wanted to fit it into a box,” Tartakovsky told IndieWire. “I love ‘Jack’ as one of my creations and would never want to change it from what it was supposed to be. There was no reason to reinvent. It was working.”

The Addams Family Animated Movie to be Helmed by Sausage Party Co-Director Conrad Vernon

  • DailyDead
One creepy, kooky, and altogether ooky family is heading back to the big screen. Following the news this past summer that The Munsters TV series reboot is in the works at NBC, the other gothic family from the ’60s TV era is looking to stake a new claim in the modern age with an animated Addams Family movie that now has a director.

According to THR, Conrad Vernon, the co-director behind the unforgettable R-rated animated comedy (or horror film, depending on how you look at it) Sausage Party, is now set to direct The Addams Family animated film for MGM.

Vernon will work from a screenplay by Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House) with additional work by Matt Lieberman (based on Charles Addams' iconic single-panel comics that first introduced readers to the frightening and fun family that would go on to include husband and wife Gomez and Morticia, their children Wednesday and Pugsley,

‘Monster Island’ DVD Review

Features the voices of: Fiona Hardingham, Roger Jackson, Jenifer Beth Kaplan, Eric Larsen, Katie Leigh, Michael Robles, Johnny Rose, Nancy Sullivan, Phillip Vasquez | Written by Billy Frolick, Alicia Núñez Puerto | Directed by Leopoldo Aguilar

When young Lucas finds out he’s not really a human; the news changes his whole world. Especially since his first monster transformation happened in front of the most popular kids at school! After unreasonably blaming his Dad for keeping his identity a secret, the angry and embarrassed Lucas runs away from home. His search for Monster Island and his real roots takes him on a fabulously scary journey that puts him face to face with more tentacles, fangs and far-out situations than he can shake one of his new wings at. Ultimately Lucas learns that being a freak, isn’t freaky – it means you’re a member of a brand new type of family you can proudly call your own.

First Look at Will Smith and Tom Holland's Spies in Disguise

First Look at Will Smith and Tom Holland's Spies in Disguise
Fox Animation, Chernin Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios have announced the voice casting for their upcoming animated film Spies In Disguise. The studio has brought on Will Smith and Tom Holland to lead the voice cast as Lance and Walter in this animated comedy, while also releasing the first two photos featuring each of these characters. It's unclear at this time if the studio will be announcing any further voice cast members for this new project in the near future.

Spies In Disguise is a buddy comedy set in the high octane globe-trotting world of international espionage. Will Smith (Men in Black) voices Lance Sterling, the world's most awesome spy. Cool, charming and super-skilled, saving the world is his occupation. And nobody does it better. Almost the exact opposite of Lance is Walter, voiced by Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming). Walter is a great mind but perhaps not a great socializer.

Newswire: Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez join the cast of Woody Allen’s latest movie

  • The AV Club
Woody Allen has found his latest infusion of life-giving young people blood to perk up his cinematic forays, with Variety reporting that Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez, and Timothée Chalamet have all signed on for the director’s next film with Amazon. Everything about the film—the follow-up to Café Society and the upcoming Wonder Wheel—is being kept under wraps, including the name, but we can assume that either or both of Fanning or Gomez will inevitably find themselves drawn to some sort of older male figure, presumably with an interest in the clarinet.

Gomez, a former Disney star, has spent the last few years splitting the difference between kiddie films and more outrageous fare, dipping in between stuff like the Hotel Transylvania franchise and Spring Breakers or Neighbors 2. Fanning, meanwhile, just finished turns for Sofia Coppola and Nicolas Winding Refn, in The Beguiled and The Neon Demon ...

Best CGI Movies: Top 10 Sony Imageworks Visual Effects Movies Ranked
Sony Pictures Imageworks, celebrating its 25th anniversary, is unique in Hollywood as the only studio-run visual effects and animation division. Formed in 1992 (now headquartered in Vancouver), Imageworks alternates between live-action/CG hybrids and animation with its younger sister, Sony Pictures Animation, which was founded in 2002.

Imageworks has won two Oscars (“Spider-Man 2” VFX and “The ChubbChubbs!” animated short) along with an Academy Sci-Tech award this year for an advanced shading program. But Imageworks first cut its teeth on “Speed,” “James and the Giant Peach,” “Jumanji,” “Starship Troopers,” and “Contact” before tackling “Stuart Little” in 1999, the first-cg-animated character to star in a live-action feature.

Since then, Imageworks spear-headed performance capture-based virtual production with director Robert Zemeckis (“Polar Express,” “Monster House”), and has continued to work on franchises including “Spider-Man” (“Homecoming” opens this week), “The Smurfs,” and “Hotel Transylvania.”

Here’s our ranking of the 10 best VFX moments from Imageworks:
