There's a montage in "The Hangover Part III" -- a retrospective, if you will -- of the Wolfpack "through the years." While watching images from all three "Hangover" movies flash across the screen, it's hard not to think about Bradley Cooper's own journey since the first film debuted in 2009. In four short years, Cooper has transformed himself from wiseacre Phil Wenneck to an Academy Award-nominated actor -- a transformation so thorough, it's actually a little odd watching him play Wenneck again.
Cooper called after a long day of press events (that were held in Las Vegas, so your guess is as good as mine as to the amount of sleep he was running on). He discussed the end of the "Hangover" series, his relationship with David O. Russell, and the reasons behind his abrupt departure from the troubled Western "Jane Got a Gun." Cooper also talked about a recent meeting with Sean Penn (yes, »

Rivalling DreamWorks and Pixar animation studios is certainly no easy task, but Blue Sky Studios are triumphantly getting along with things, consistently making a profit on their reasonable back catalogue. Boasting the likes of Rio and the popular Ice Age franchise, they now return with Chris Wedge’s Epic, an adventure in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids mould. However, though this may certainly be a more advanced, contemporary take on the the 1989 family adventure, it’s lacking in that same ingenuity.
When teenager Mary Katherine (Amanda Seyfried) loses her mother to illness, she is forced to go and live with her estranged and somewhat unconventional father (Jason Sudeikis), who is completely transfixed with the idea that a community of miniature people live in the forest. Though sceptical, when Mk is magically transported into a tiny person, deep into the forest, she becomes embroiled in a war between good and evil. »

Blue Sky Studios may be plucky underdogs when measured next to the brilliance of Pixar, but their ongoing Ice Age series and 2011's Rio show they know a thing or two about putting together bright and buoyant animated adventures.
Their latest offering Epic takes inspiration from William Joyce's book The Leaf Men and the Grave Good Bugs, bringing to life a miniature forest world populated by warriors riding atop hummingbirds, an evil tribe of Boggans led by Mandrake (Christoph Waltz) and a Mother Nature ruler called Queen Tara (voiced by Beyoncé).
There's a human component to the story, too, with Amanda Seyfried providing the viewer entry point as teen Mary Katherine (she prefers to go by Mk). The death of Mk's mother »

The birds of “Rio” are flocking together once again -- and this time, they're shaking their tail feathers. A new teaser trailer for “Rio 2,” the follow-up to the hit animated movie, features the colorful macaws, toucans, and cockatoos busting a move to joyful, drum-heavy music. The brief teaser doesn't show any footage from the sequel, in which Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) take their three kids away from the titular city and to the Amazon to learn how to live like real birds. But can these city avians fly with their new wild neighbors? Jamie Foxx, Tracy Morgan, will.i.am, and George Lopez will all reprise their characters from the original movie, with Andy Garcia, Bruno Mars, and Kristin Chenoweth joining as new Amazonian birds. “Rio 2” is set to fly into theaters April 11, 2014. »

Rio took almost half a billion dollars for Blue Sky Studios back in 2011, and launched their first franchise outside of the Ice Age series. Needless to say, things are looking excellent for their sequel next year, Rio 2.
Currently slated for release in April 2014, the animated comedy-musical will see the original leading cast reprising their roles for the follow-up, alongside a host of brilliant new voices. And whilst we still might be ways out from its theatrical release date, we all know how fast time flies (bird-related pun only partially intended). And thus we arrive at this great first Rio 2 teaser trailer!
Blu, Jewel, and their three kids live the perfect domesticated life in the magical city. When Jewel decides the kids need to learn to live like real birds, she insists the family venture into the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in with his new neighbors, he »

The teaser trailer for Blue Sky Studio's "Rio 2" has just hit the Internet and the brief clip doesn't explain much, instead encouraging you to shake your tail feathers while you'll undoubtedly wonder, at least for the first thirty seconds or so, if you're watching a commercial for a feature-length version of the "Angry Birds" iPhone game. (Spoiler alert: you're not, but Sony have just announced that a 3D "Angry Birds" movie is hitting on July 1st, 2016. To quote one Playlist staff member, way to strike when the iron's hot, Sony). The sequel to the bafflingly popular, exceptionally colorful 2011 animated feature "Rio," finds neurotic parrot Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and his wife Jewel (Anne Hathaway) living with their three children in Rio de Janeiro. Instead of evading kidnappers or dealing with life in the favela, they instead are dealing with their children becoming "city birds," so they decide to travel deep into the Amazon. »

If you love brightly coloured, obnoxious, dancing birds, then the first teaser trailer for Blue Sky’s Rio 2 is sure to get you all excited. The teaser doesn’t give us much…because it’s a teaser, and all it really shows are some of the characters coming together and dancing. It’s a Brazilian teaser, so don’t expect to hear any familiar voices, but fret not as almost the entire English language cast will be returning to their roles.
The plot will see Blu and Jewel raising their three kids, but when Jewel decides that her kids need to experience the wild, Blu feels as though he doesn’t quite fit in and may lose his family. I’m not a fan of the first film as I just found it to be loud and irritating. However, this plot has the potential to be quite engaging. I »

The movie’s Rio, and while it doesn’t exactly dance on the sands – Ok, Duran Duran fans, I’ll stop now – it will spawn a sequel that’s due in theaters on April 14, 2014. Though that seems like an eternity from now, with movies like Monsters University, Despicable Me 2, Epic and Turbo crowding the marketplace, the team behind Rio 2 assume this was as good a time as any to let folks know that the sequel is coming. Here’s your first look, courtesy of The Sun UK: Rio, which came out in 2011, was a surprise hit for Blue Sky Studios and Fox, banking nearly $500 million in worldwide ticket sales. Those kinds of numbers guarantee you a sequel, and so original stars Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg,...

The team behind the Ice Age series and Horton Hears A Who! are set to release Epic into cinemas next week, but have wasted no time in getting young mouths salivating even more than usual over the prospect of a second helping of crazy globetrotting bird adventures.
If that clip has your heart a-fluttering, then here’s the blurb containing what will hopefully be a vague plot synopsis:
Blu, Jewel and their three kids [are] living the perfect domesticated life in that magical city [Rio]. When Jewel decides the kids need to learn to live like real birds, she insists the family venture into the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in with his new neighbors, he worries »

It's only appropriate the first trailer for Rio 2 arrive courtesy of Brazil as Blue Sky and Fox once again return to the life of Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg) and his now-companion Jewel (voiced by Anne Hathaway) in Rio de Janiero.

As for the story, once Jewel decides the kids need to learn to live like real birds, she insists the family leave their domesticated lives and venture into the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in with his new neighbors, he worries he may lose Jewel and the kids to the call of the wild. Essentially, they've found a way to replicate the events of the first film, »
