Animated Movie ‘The Extincts’ in the Works at Cirrina Studios

24 May 2017 12:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cirrina Studios is moving into pre-production of its first animated feature film, “The Extincts” with plans for a 2019 release.

The project is based on British writer Veronica Cossanteli’s middle grade novel of the same name. “The Extincts” follows the adventures of a boy who goes to work on a farm hidden deep in the woods where he discovers a hidden cache of extinct and mythological creatures, one of which escapes and terrorizes the town in which he lives.

The novel is published by Chicken House/Scholastic in the U.K. and in the United States by Henry Holt.

David Lipman, a producer on “Shrek 2,” will write the screenplay and William “Bill” Joyce will direct. Lipman will also produce the film with Michael Siegel, who was an executive producer on “The Bfg”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” and “Rise of the Guardians”.

Spider-Man Animated Movie Poster Leaves Its Mark

23 May 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In just a few months, Tom Holland returns to the big screen as Spider-Man in his first stand alone adventure, Spider-Man: Homecoming, but next year, fans will also get a new Spider-Man animated movie, which will feature The Get Down and Dope star Shameik Moore lending his voice to the iconic Miles Morales. While we wait for additional voice cast members to come aboard, Sony Pictures unveiled the first two posters for this untitled animated adventure during the annual Licensing Expo, which is currently happening in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, these posters don't give us our first look at the animated Spidey, but it does feature the movie's new logo.

Collider spotted these photos on the convention floor earlier today, which showcases a graffiti-style logo that is being used for this animated Spider-Man movie. Unfortunately, the Licensing Expo didn't reveal any story details for this untitled animated adventure, but this project »

Just because they’ve lent Peter Parker to Marvel Studios doesn’t mean that Sony aren’t interested in moving forward with their own Spider-Man-related projects. On top of the recent news that Tom Hardy would be playing Eddie Brock Aka Venom in a live-action movie, here’s a reminder that another wallcrawler will soon be making his way to the big screen.

The untitled animated Spider-Man movie will feature Dope‘s Shameik Moore as Miles Morales with Liev Schreiber as a yet unrevealed villain. That’s about all we currently know about the film’s content, but at least we now have our first glimpse at two posters for the movie. Collider spotted them while attending the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, and you can check them out in the gallery above.

Chris Pine & Michelle Williams To Star In Spy Thriller From ‘Theory Of Everything’ Director

5 May 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a while, we wondered if Chris Pine would ever be able to escape the shadow of Captain Kirk. Before he starred in J.J. Abrams’ first “Star Trek” film, Pine was mostly known for tween fare like Lindsay Lohan vehicle “Just My Luck” or “The Princess Diaries 2.” Pine proved to be perfect casting in the role that was created by William Shatner, but subsequent starring vehicles didn’t often work: for every “Unstoppable,” there was a “This Means War,” or a “Rise Of The Guardians,” or a “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” or a “Horrible Bosses 2.”

But Pine’s been having a better run of it recently.

Spider-Man Animated Movie Has Found Its Miles Morales

13 April 2017 2:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just months after Sony Pictures confirmed that their animated Spider-Man movie will follow Miles Morales, the studio has finally found their lead voice actor. Shameik Moore (Dope) has signed on to voice this beloved character in the animated movie, with Liev Schreiber also coming aboard to voice an unspecified villain. Now that the studio is in casting mode, it remains to be seen how quickly the other roles will be filled out.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, which comes just over a month after we reported that Ice Cube was being considered to voice Miles Morales' father, although his casting has yet to be confirmed. Ice Cube has previously worked with writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller before, playing Captain Dickson in 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were originally slated to direct this animated movie, but they are now only serving as writers and producers, »

Sony Finds Their Miles Morales

13 April 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

As we get closer and closer to the big screen debut of Miles Morales in Sony’s Animated Spider-Man film, we have been anxiously awaiting the voice cast. Well today, hidden behind Star Wars Celebration hype, we have gotten a villain, as well as our Miles Morales.

Miles Morales is the newest web head to hit the printed page, and late next year he will be the first Spider-Man other than Peter Parker to hit the big screen. Miles made news when first announced as the first a half-black half-Latino hero. He was voiced by Atlanta creator Donald Glover, who most people wanted to see play as a live action version before Tom Holland was announced. Unfortunately that is not how the cards were dealt. Instead we are getting our Miles Morales Spidey in animated form.

Tom McGrath interview: Boss Baby, animation, George Lucas

Simon Brew Apr 5, 2017

We chat with Boss Baby director Tom McGrath about animation, changes at DreamWorks, Boss Baby 2, advice from Ron Howard and more...

Tom McGrath is one of Hollywood’s most underappreciated comedy directors. Megamind was a hoot, I found myself guffawing heavily through the Madagascar trilogy and now, with The Boss Baby, he’s brought yet more animated mischief to the screen.

We got the chance to have a chat with about the movie, about the big behind the scenes changes at DreamWorks Animation, and the invaluable advice of Ron Howard and George Lucas

I remember watching the Oscars one year, and Jim Carrey came on to present an award just as Liar Liar had opened to massive numbers. He walked up and said “how was your weekend, mine was good!”. So, Tom McGrath: how was your weekend?

It was great! It was good! [Laughs] You know, I don’t have children myself, »

Falling DVD & Blu-ray sales, and an era passing

21 March 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 23, 2017

As DVD and Blu-ray sales fall, it's no longer certain that films will get a disc release. So what's happening?

Let’s start with a statistic.

In 2013, Hotel Transylvania shifted 1,029,614 copies on Blu-ray disc in the Us alone. A hefty number, yet the animated hit – which has thus far spawned one sequel, with another on the way – was only the 23rd best-selling Blu-ray release of the year in America that year, just trailing titles such as Turbo, Rise Of The Guardians, Django Unchained and Life Of Pi.

2013 was arguably the peak year for Blu-ray sales, with 23 individual titles selling a million copies or more in the Us. The best-selling of all, Despicable Me 2, shifted 4.6m copies alone, and many more overseas. On the DVD format, meanwhile, 45 different films sold a million units in America in 2013, including another 2.7m copies of Hotel Transylvania.

In recent years, however, »

How Alec Baldwin, ‘30 Rock’ and ‘Megamind’ Inspired ‘The Boss Baby’

21 March 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alec Baldwin brought his own boss babies to DreamWorks Animation’s blue carpet on Monday for the premiere of “The Boss Baby.” The star, his wife, and their three-year-old daughter and one-year-old son smiled for the cameras before the AMC Loews Lincoln Square screening in New York City.

It’s been three years since Baldwin first signed on to voice the lead role in the film about a new baby’s arrival and his impact on a family. In that time Comcast acquired DreamWorks Animation for $3.8 billion and Jeffrey Katzenberg stepped down as the company’s CEO. Tom McGrath’s “The Boss Baby” marked Katzenberg’s final film with the company.

“I wasn’t worried because I was sure Jeffrey wouldn’t just bail out of there without making sure everything was the way it ought to be for the health of the company,” Baldwin said. “I don’t think »

Sony Animation Goes Diverse with Miles Morales as Spider-Man and Lin-Manuel Miranda Musical ‘Vivo’

19 January 2017 2:19 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sony Pictures Animation, which has fallen on hard times in recent years, highlighted diversity and female empowerment as part of its comeback at Wednesday’s slate preview in Culver City. The biggest news was confirmation that Miles Morales, the mixed race web-slinging teen (African-American and Hispanic), will star in the untitled “Spider-Man” feature coming December 21, 2018.

Morales, created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli to succeed the late Peter Parker in the comics, has already become a TV animation staple on Disney Xd’s “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” (initially voiced by Donald Glover).

The animated “Spider-Man” marks a return to Spa for Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), who directed “The Lego Movie” and are currently making the “Han Solo” standalone “Star Wars” feature.

In a pre-recorded video message from London, Lord said, “What inspired us the most is that anyone can wear the mask. »

M Night Shyamalan interview: Split, non-conformity, creative freedom

16 January 2017 4:53 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 17, 2017

Writer-director M Night Shyamalan talks about his new film, Split, its making, themes and lots more...

Following the expensive Will Smith sci-fi vehicle After Earth in 2013, M Night Shyamalan returned two years later with lean, found-footage horror thriller, The Visit. Made for a tiny fraction of After Earth's investment, it marked something of a turning point for the writer-director: tense, quirky and at times blackly amusing, it was Shyamalan's lowest-budget film since the 90s, and also his most warmly received piece since 2002's Signs.

See related  Peter Ramsey interview: revisiting Rise Of The Guardians

The partnership between Shyamalan and prolific indie producer Jason Blum - who's also taken such filmmakers as Barry Levinson, James DeMonaco and Damien Chazelle under his creative wing - is clearly an effective one, since the two have reunited for another movie, Split.
