New stills from Angry Birds movie prove that Angry Birds movie is still definitely happening

16 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You'd forgotten that Sony and Finnish gaming developers Roxio were making an animated Angry Birds movie, but that's all changed thanks to these new images.

Debuting on Entertainment Weekly, these snaps show both camps in a state of distress: the pigs with TNT and the birds with some sort of mysterious seaborne arrival.

Capitalising on the ubiquity of the irritable fowl, the producers behind the project have been wrestling with how to make a catapulting game involving exploding birds and lime green pigs actually emotionally engaging.

Helping them with their quest are the voice cast, which includes such talent as Jason Sudeikis as Red, Josh Gad as Chuck, Danny McBride as Bomb and Maya Rudolph as Matilda.

Wonderfully, Games of Thrones' very own Peter Dinklage is voicing "The Mighty Eagle" - not pictured - which will hopefully be more successful than his unfortunate work on video game Destiny.

Chevy Chase comedy Oh! Heavenly Dog set for a remake

17 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

20th Century Fox has announced that it is set to remake the Chevy Chase comedy Oh! Heavenly Dog, with Tim Hill signing on to direct as well as co-writing the script with Dave Johnson.

Released in 1980, Oh! Heavenly Dog starred Chase as a private investigator who is killed after discovering a dead body. Seeing as the afterlife is yet to decide whether he’s destined for Heaven or Hell, he’s given a shot at redemption by returning to Earth as a dog in order to crack the case and solve his own murder.

Hill’s previous credits include Muppets from Space, Alvin and the Chipmunks and Hop, while he was also announced as director on another 80s remake Short Circuit back in 2011, although that project seems to be stuck in development hell.

Chevy Chase's Weirdest Film Is Getting Remade

31 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The 1980s were a magical time, a time when you could make a movie about a private investigator reincarnated as a dog to avoid going to hell. And now it turns out that one of Chevy Chase.s most bizarre movies, Oh! Heavenly Dog, is getting remade. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox 2000 is ramping up development on a new version of Oh! Heavenly Dog. Tim Hill, who re-launched the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise back in 2007, and helped develop SpongeBob Squarepants, is in line to direct the remake. Dave Johnson will handle the scripting duties, and Temple Hill, the production company behind The Maze Runner franchise, will handle that side of things. As Hill is also responsible for the likes of Muppets from Space, Garfield 2, and the Easter Bunny comedy Hop, so it feels like we.re in for a live-action/animation hybrid when the revamped Oh!

'Oh Heavenly Dog' Remake Planned, Will Benji Return?

28 August 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 1980 Chevy Chase comedy Oh! Heavenly Dog is getting the remake treatment at Fox 2000, with the studio hiring Tim Hill (Hop) to direct. The filmmaker will also co-write the script with Dave Johnson. Temple Hill, the production company behind the young adult franchise The Maze Runner, are producing.

The story centered on a private investigator (Chevy Chase) who is stabbed to death after discovering a dead body. It is decided that he won't go to Heaven or Hell, but instead is sent back to Earth as a dog, tasked with solving his own murder. The original comedy movie also starred Jane Seymour, Omar Sharif and Robert Morley. The dog was played by Benjean, »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system.

The top 50 80s kids' TV themes

29 July 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Bananaman to Grange Hill, join us in a spot of TV nostalgia as we celebrate 50 great 1980s kids' TV theme songs...

There comes a time to turn away from the horrors of the world and retreat underneath the soft, comforting duvet of nostalgia. That time is Friday. That metaphorical duvet is below.

Here are fifty of the best kids’ TV theme songs (spread over two pages and in arbitrary order) of the 1980s. Some, like Alan Hawkshaw’s distinctive Grange Hill intro, are unarguable classics of the era, while others, like Mike Harding's Count Duckula, only started in the late-eighties and spent the rest of their run in the next decade.

Obviously, there being only 50 on this list, we may have missed out your favourite (deliberately or otherwise). Let us know if so, but remember that links may take a while to appear in the comments thread because »

13 July 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From 'Jurassic World' to 'Minions': Why Universal Owns the Box Office

13 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

From rampaging dinosaurs to yellow henchman, Universal Pictures can't be stopped.

With "Minions" scoring a $115.2 million opening weekend -- the second highest for an animated film, behind 2007's "Shrek the Third" with $121.6 million -- it's not just another hit for Universal this summer, but for the industry in general.

The overall take is keeping up with 2013, the best year to date. It's also part of a stellar year for Universal, which boasted this week that it's reached the $3 billion mark overseas in record time, thanks largely to such hits as "Minions," "Jurassic World," "Pitch Perfect 2," "Furious 7," and "Fifty Shades of Grey."

But the big box office of these movies points to a larger issue. All of them, save "Fifty Shades," are spinoffs, sequels, and/or reboots of previously successful films. (And "Fifty Shades," of course, is based on a huge bestseller.) If Universal had a great first six months of the year, »

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip trailer – highspeed chipfunk

8 July 2015 2:49 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Forget Fast & Furious 7. In a first look at the newest ‘squeakquel’, Alvin and friends cling for dear life in car chases and belt out Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk on repeat

It seems like everyone hates the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. They’re critically reviled and have never received a Rotten Tomatoes score higher than 27%. Their titles are packed with deliberately terrible wordplay like “squeakquel” and “chipwrecked”. Even their stars outwardly hate the films: David Cross went out of his way to tell people not to watch the last one.

Like it or not, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip released a trailer

Granted I don't exactly keep close tabs on the Alvin And The Chipmunks franchise, but I was slightly amazed to learn that the series has brought in over a billion dollars worldwide. For films which feature a quartet of cartoon chipmunks squeaking away for an hour and a half, that's a little surprising. What's not so surprising is that a fourth installment is on the way, but with... Read More »

Alvin's Back in First Trailer for The Road Chip

7 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

2oth Century Fox has released the first trailer for the next upcoming Alvin and the Chipmunk animated/live-action film, The Road Chip...and it's about what you expected.  Come inside to check it out.

I grew up with the Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoon, and thoroughly loved it.  I wasn't very impressed with it's transition to the big screen, however, and inexplicably two sequels followed it.  Well folks, they're still not done and the first trailer for the new movie, The Road Chip is here: 

The trailer doesn't do a whole lot to give you info on the plot, other than the fact they're on a road trip for some reason (which we gathered from the film's title).  Plus the boys are still singing, and of course getting into trouble.  That's about it.  Frankly, I'm not all that excited, and somehow the animation looks worse than in the previous movies. »

First trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

7 July 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip has arrived online. Alvin (Justin Long), Theodore (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Simon (Jesse McCartney) are all back for the fourth installment in the Alvin and the Chipmunks film series, following 2011’s Chipwrecked.

Jason Lee, who will be reprising his role as Dave, will be joined by such newcomers to the series as Tony Hale and Bella Thorne. Wild Hogs director Walt Becker has helmed the film, while Mrs. Doubtfire writer Randi Mayem Singer has penned the script.

In The Road Chip, the trio of talking chipmunks set off on a road trip to New York City to stop their owner Dave from proposing to his girlfriend, as they think it means he will dump them. The trailer shows Alvin, Theodore and Simon singing the hit Bruno Mars song “Uptown Funk,” in their naturally high-pitched voices.

The Trailer For Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Road Chip Is Here To Make You Hate Everything

7 July 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If nothing else, this winter’s Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Road Chip could be seen as Hollywood’s most effective form of birth control yet – the prospect of being dragged by the young’uns into 20th Century Fox’s fourth movie about an obnoxious trio of shrill, childish rodents is likely more than enough to scare some people off parenthood for good.

The first trailer for The Road Chip is pretty much as awful as you’d expect, with an aggravatingly serious voice-over delivering the beyond-lame title pun and the chipmunks squeaking out the lines to “Uptown Funk” as nearby humans inexplicably throw their hands up in dance without covering their ears and howling in pain (I guess no one really cares about making this stuff believable). And then there’s a wearier-than-ever Jason Lee half-heartedly bellowing the closest thing this franchise has to a catchphrase. Ugh.

Regardless, the »
