Hard to believe, but there hasn't been a feature-lenth film based on Charles Schulz's Peanuts since 1980's Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown. This new 3D/CGI film should be quite respectful to the source material as Charles Shulz's son, Craig, is one of the producers. The film was/is directed by Steve Martino, who previously helmed Ice Age: Continental Drift. For the first time ever, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang we know and love from Charles Schulz's timeless "Peanuts" comic strip will be making their big-screen debut; like they've never been seen before in a CG-Animated Feature film in 3D. »
Earlier this week, Universal Pictures announced that its sequel to 2012's action-thriller The Bourne Legacy has been shifted from a August 14, 2015 release to July 15, 2016, reportedly to make room for the studio's biopic Straight Outta Compton which took the August 14, 2015 slot. An unconfirmed report from Latino-Review claims the real reason for the delay is that Matt Damon has finally agreed to reprise his role as Jason Bourne.
It isn't clear how director Justin Lin managed to convince Matt Damon to come back, especially since the actor has repeatedly stated in the past that he will only return to the franchise if The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is back at the helm. The actor did reveal last month that he is open to returning, if he and Paul Greengrass can find a story they like, even suggesting that fans submit their own stories to Universal Pictures.
Besides having the trademark mutton chops and hair as Wolverine in all of the X-Men films, Hugh Jackman doesn't usually have to drastically change the style of his hair, both on his head and on his face. Les Miserables required a drastic transformation, but otherwise, he's mostly looked like himself. Now Jackman has shown off a new bald and bearded look as the villain Blackbeard in Pan, the new adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic fantasy adventure from director Joe Wright. Jackman had a full head of hair at the Tony awards last weekend, but now he has a clean-shaven head. Or maybe it's a really good bald cap. Look! Here's a first look at Hugh Jackman's look in Joe Wright's Pan from the actor's Instagram: Pan is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Anna Karenina, Hanna) and written by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift). Based on J.M. Barrie's classic, »

With its time-twisting plot, sci-fi soapiness, powerful humanism, and to-die-for cast, this is the summer blockbuster done with elegance and heart. I’m “biast” (pro): love most of the previous films in the series
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
It is a nasty future we open on, in this I’ve-lost-count-how-many-th X-Men flick: dark postapocalyptic skies and ruined cities left in the wake of the ongoing genocide of mutants and humans by robot Sentinels. The sci-fi Judgment Day has come and the Terminators aren’t even bothering to imprison survivors in the Matrix (they’re not leaving survivors, it seems). And I have to wonder, Was Days of Future Past inspired and informed by the machine apocalypses of 80s and 90s flicks? Or were those flicks inspired and informed by old 70s X-Men comics? Is it both realities simultaneously? »

Rob Lowe has signed on to star in Paramount's live-action/CGI hybrid comedy Monster Trucks. We first reported on this project back in February, when Jane Levy and Lucas Till were circling roles in the project. They have now been confirmed, along with Danny Glover, Amy Ryan, Holt McCallany, Thomas Lennon and Barry Pepper.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but our report from February revealed that Lucas Till is playing a bad boy with a good heart, while Jane Levy's character was described as a high school version of Tina Fey.
Thanks to overwhelming success in Japan, Frozen is now the biggest animation of all time internationally too, after taking the worldwide record a few weeks back. It already became the most successful animation of all time worldwide some weeks ago, but internationally Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) was still the champion with $715.9 million. Well […]
Read Box Office: Frozen Becomes the Highest Grossing Animation Ever Internationally on Filmonic.
Sony's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" opened in fourteen markets this weekend - including U.K., Spain, Germany, Belgium, Mexico and Australia - and has raked in $47 million thus far. In those territories, with the Easter holiday weekend and school holidays helping numbers, it's the biggest opening of the year.
The opening is on par with the first 'Amazing' and well above the recent "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" which itself passed the half billion mark at the global box-office this weekend. "Rio 2" is also soaring and passed $400 million worldwide this weekend.
Meanwhile Disney's "Frozen" has now surpassed "Ice Age: Continental Drift" in overseas markets to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time in international markets with $729.3 million. Add to that is its domestic total which is expected to cross $400 million next weekend.

Fueled by whammo performances from “Frozen” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Disney has crossed the $1 billion mark this weekend at the international box office, marking the fastest time the studio has ever done so.
So far, “Captain America” has grossed a whopping $586 million-plus globally, of which $385.1 million comes from overseas markets — a massive improvement over the original.
Though “The Winter Soldier” has impressed to date, the Mouse’s far-and-away stand-out player has been Disney Animation’s “Frozen,” which this weekend became the highest-grossing film internationally, with $729.3 million, surpassing “Ice Age: Continental Drift” (with $715 million in 2012).
“Frozen” has defied expectations in nearly every market: For instance, in Japan, where anime usually reigns supreme, the Disney toon has amassed an outstanding $104.1 million locally, making that territory the film’s largest contributor outside the U.S.
South Korea is the toon’s second-largest international territory, with $76.9 million, followed by the U.K. »

Cinema in Peru, long a bastion of weighty dramas that focus on issues like terrorism, poverty, class differences and race, is undergoing a revolution of sorts as a growing number of filmmakers tap into the tastes of local audiences and find fresh financing schemes to bring their pics to plexes.
“Several filmmakers are distancing themselves from the usual serious drama that used to populate local productions, and moving into traditional, straightforward genres like animation, comedy, suspense and horror,” says Jorge Licetti, whose New Century Films distributed local hit “Asu Mare!” which stars comedian and thesp Carlos Alcantara as he relates his life through his mother’s point of view in a mix of standup routines and re-enactments. The laffer, directed by Ricardo Maldonado, grossed $12 million at the Peruvian box office last year, surpassing the country’s previous all-time B.O. record-holder, 2012’s “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” at $9.6 million.

Good grief! Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the "Peanuts" gang are the latest cartoon characters to get a CGI relaunch, courtesy of Blue Sky Studios ("Ice Age," "Rio"). The brand new teaser doesn't give much away -- it's basically just a quick "2001" spoof, followed by Charlie and Snoopy running around to the familiar strains of Vince Guaraldi's jazzy theme -- but it serves as a warm reminder of the Charles Schultz characters' endless charm. Watch the teaser here: Steve Martino ("Ice Age: Continental Drift") is directing from a script by Craig Schulz’s son Bryan and Cornelius Uliano. Another Schultz, Craig, is producing alongside Paul Feig ("Bridesmaids"). "Peanuts" opens November 6, 2015. »

I love Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and today we have the first teaser trailer for the feature film adaptation of Peanuts! Having grown up with these characters, this trailer just made me happy. The movie was directed by Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift), who tells USA Today,
"We're going to fly with Snoopy in his fantasy world. We have a bigger canvas. Bill Melendez got Snoopy off the ground in the TV specials. We're going to take it a step further."
The movie was done in CG animation, but I love that it still has that classic comic style and feel of the characters that fans love.
For the first time ever, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang we know and love from Charles Schulz's timeless "Peanuts" comic strip will be making their big-screen debut; like they've never been seen before in a CG-Animated Feature film in 3D. »
