With May just around the corner, the summer of blockbuster is starting to heat up. And while we've still got a couple months to wait for some of the later releases in the season, the official start of the most profitable time of the year for Hollywood will bring plenty of hype for the films on the way. This time we've got a new poster for Pan, the fantasy adaptation from director Joe Wright, which means there may be a new trailer on the way as well, especially since we've only seen one trailer for the film, and that was back in 2014. None of the film's stars like Hugh Jackman are featured, but that's actually somewhat refreshing. Look below! Here's the new poster for Joe Wright's Pan from Empire: You can still watch the first trailer for Joe Wright's Pan right here. Pan is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, »

Science fiction with training wheels, fine for sucking the kiddies into geekery but with little appeal for grownup fans of animated genre adventure. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

It may well be the nicest alien invasion ever, when the blobby Boov come to planet Earth in their adorable bubble spaceships. They’re hiding out from a nasty, spiky predator and they mean us no harm, but we are thoughtlessly and inconveniently occupying their new cities, so the entire human race gets evacuated — in an involuntary way — to Australia, to a new settlement that looks rather like Truman Burbank’s hometown of Seahaven. Pleasant on the surface, perhaps, but definitely with an undercurrent of creepy, even apart from the whole alien-invasion thing.

We've still got about eight months to wait until we see The Peanuts Movie hit the big screen, but that's not stopping 20th Century Fox from teasing the first big screen outing for Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang with some new character posters. What's interesting, is it seems like Fox has noticed that audiences aren't quite as familiar with the Peanuts moniker as they are with Snoopy and Charlie Brown since their names have been made much bigger than the actual title of the film itself on these posters. It certainly seems like the marketing will play up the well-known characters more than the comic strip title. Here's the new posters for Steve Martino's The Peanuts Movie from Total Film: You can check out the previous teaser trailer for The Peanuts Movie right here.

So that you don’t forget that there is film starring Charles M. Schulz’s Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts kids coming our way later this year, Fox has released a new set of character posters. Check them out in all their yellow glory below. The film, which bears the somewhat unwieldy title Snoopy And Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie in this country, finds Charlie Brown in typically anxious mode as he embarks on a small-scale quest to find something he believes is truly important to him. Snoopy, meanwhile, has much bigger ambitions, taking to the skies in pursuit of his aerial arch nemesis, The Red Baron. Directed by Ice Age: Continental Drift’s Steve Martino and produced by Paul Feig, the film also features input from Schulz family members Craig and Bryan, with extra script work from Cornelius Uliano. It’s been crafted using the latest CG tech, »
Before donning the superhero guise for her title role as Diana Prince in Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman adaptation, Fast and Furious starlet Gal Gadot may appear alongside Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher and Jon Hamm in the Greg Mottola-directed comedy, Keeping Up With the Joneses, according to a report published by Deadline.
Should Gadot board the project, it would mean that the actress’ schedule for the rest of the year would be packed full, as Warner Bros. confirmed over the weekend that production on Michelle MacLaren’s superhero flick would get underway in the fall of this year. The filmmaker will helm a script provided by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift, Pan).
As for Keeping Up With the Joneses, Mottola’s film will orbit around a couple who soon discover that their next door neighbours are not what they appear. We assume that Galifianakis and Fisher will play one of the loved-up pairing, »

We already know that the upcoming "Wonder Woman" film will star Gal Gadot and be directed by Michelle MacLaren ("The Walking Dead") from a script by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift). And now comes word that the plan is to begin shooting this fall in order to make the June 23rd, 2017 release. Before the "Wonder Woman" film, Gadot will first play the superhero in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," which will hit theaters next year. There have been rumors that "Wonder Woman" will be the first installment in a trilogy that will first take place in the 1920s and go from there. Stay tuned. »
Rumors have suggested that the film will take place in the 1920s and is the first of a trilogy which looks at the island of Themyscira's first encounter with the outside world and Diana Prince's own experiences with a United States that still had a lot to learn about equal rights.
What is confirmed is that Michelle MacLaren ("Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead") directs the film from a script by Jason Fuchs ("Pan," "Ice Age: Continental Drift") with a June 23rd 2017 release being targeted.
Gadot will make her first cinematic appearance in character in next year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". »

So many children and generations have grown up with the Peanuts comic strip and holiday cartoons that you wonder if a big-screen adaptation of Charles Schultz’s beloved characters is just overdoing it. For the new film Peanuts, due out November 6, the lovingly hand drawn animation has been done away with for an updated, CGI gloss. And yet this first trailer shows there’s still some modest humor to be had, with Snoopy and his pal Woodstock dreaming up more big adventures as that signature song plays. Charlie Brown and the whole gang make an appearance briefly at the trailer’s end as well.

Fox has released a new trailer for the animated “The Peanuts Movie,” due out Nov. 6.
The computer animated 3D movie, based on Charles Schulz’s iconic comic strip, opens with Woodstock the bird working on converting Snoopy’s doghouse to a World War I airplane with Vince Guaraldi’s classic “Linus and Lucy” theme playing. Snoopy then flies the doghouse to Paris as his World War I flying ace in pursuit of the Red Baron, whereupon he returns to the initial setting.
The trailer concludes with a brief scene of Charlie Brown coming into a movie theater to see the movie.
Fox acquired the feature film rights in 2012 to Schulz’s comic strip. “Ice Age: Continental Drift” helmer Steve Martino directs from a script by Schulz’s son and grandson, Craig and Bryan Schulz, with Cornelius Uliano. All three are producing along with Paul Feig.

Back in November of 2014, a second teaser trailer for the animated Peanuts movie debuted, showing off Snoopy getting into an aerial doghouse battle over Paris. Now a new teaser trailer has arrived using that same footage, but with completely different bookends surrounding that sequence. In the last trailer, there were Christmas lights and wreaths, but this time, it's just a bunch of snow, and Snoopy hiding from an unseen enemy. Perhaps that other bookend was just used around the time of the holidays and isn't actually in the movie. Anyway, there's some adorable new footage of Snoopy and his friend Woodstock. Watch! Here's the new teaser trailer for Steve Martino's animated Peanuts movie from 20th Century Fox: Check out the previous teaser trailer for the animated Peanuts movie right here. Peanuts is directed bey Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift, Horton Hears a Who!) and written by Craig & Bryan Schulz »

When you hear the name Nicki Minaj you think a sassy attitude, full of piss, vinegar, and the color pink. Her rap career has painted her in such a carefully constructed light, and it's proceeded to send her star rising even further. Like many musical artists before her, Minaj has naturally taken an interest in acting, as she's had roles in Ice Age: Continental Drift as well as 2014's The Other Woman. Though judging by this video recently released, it looks like one aspiration clearly came before the other. Thanks to YouTube user Nicki Royale, the video above from Nicki Minaj's high school days at the Laguardia High School Of Music And Performing Arts has surfaced. It's a short clip, but it's enough to show off the fact that the budding actress just hasn't had the role she deserves to show off her surprising level of acting ability. After all, »
