19 June 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Illumination and Universal PicturesDespicable Me 3 opens in theaters nationwide on June 30, 2017.

Illumination, who brought moviegoers Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.

How Disney and Pixar’s Animated Box Office Reign Could be Dethroned by Universal’s Minions

15 June 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pixar’s “Cars 3” and Illumination Entertainment’s “Despicable 3” open tomorrow and June 30, respectively; early estimates suggest it’s the Minions that will rule the world. And if that’s the case, Universal could become the most successful animation distributor in domestic box office.

Disney still holds sway on a global basis; over the last five years, Disney-distributed animation has grossed just over $5 billion to Universal’s $3.35 billion. However, as a producer Illumination’s box office is bigger than either Disney or Pixar, domestic and foreign, and with this latest round it could become more successful than both entities combined at the domestic box office. »

The beginner’s guide to Wittertainment

14 June 2017 1:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Catherine Pearson Jun 21, 2017

All you need to know about Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo’s Film Review show...

Hello to Jason.

See related  Dwayne Johnson headlining Big Trouble In Little China remake Big Trouble In Little China remake: John Carpenter not consulted Big Trouble In Little China: Kurt Russell on the remake Zu: the movie that inspired Big Trouble In Little China

The term ‘Wittertainment’ was originally coined by a fan of Kermode And Mayo’s Film Review radio show and podcast on BBC Radio 5 Live. Easily mistaken for a nod to Mark and Simon’s sharp and witty banter, the term in fact comes from the continual on-air wittering of the pair. It is truly the bromance of the modern age.

The witterings of film critic and double bass extraordinaire Mark Kermode and radio giant and novelist Simon Mayo are the highlight of this glorious show, a show that they frequently remind listeners is not, in fact, about film at all. Just like Jaws is not about a shark. Confused? Most likely. Allow me to introduce you into the vast, colourful and friendly listenership of the hugely popular radio show that recently won the British Podcast Awards’ ‘Listeners’ Choice’ award, a trophy that Simon frequently reminds Mark on air that they ought to be sharing.

The Church of Wittertainment

Fans of Kermode And Mayo’s Film Review are better known as members of the Church of Wittertainment and the show devotes a great deal of time to catching up with their listenership. Letters from listeners, or rather ‘Wittertainees’, have led to the coining of new Wittertainment slang (Gerrard Butler now goes by ‘Shut Up Butt Wot’ after a listener explained her child’s mishearing of the actor’s name), lively debate around the latest film releases and some funny, fascinating and truly moving stories. Simon’s considerate and empathetic reading of fan letters makes Wittertainment more than a two-man show with a bunch o’ film reviews; it’s a family.

Emails to the show feature all sorts, from thanking the show for its assistance during an operation or marathon to requesting a small corner of the Church for the practise of one’s own faith, occupation or tendency to be female pipe smoker (apparently it’s a rare thing). Following an architect’s blue print of the ‘Witterthedral’ that was sent in to the show, it is now possible to view the different areas of the Church in its large, W-shaped building, including ‘Clergy Corner’, ‘Humanist Hollow’ and the ‘Transgender Transept’. Fan contributions in 2016 saw the creation of the country of Wittertania complete with (scarily legitimate looking) passports and even a national anthem. A number of emails are also sent in to ask for Mark and Simon’s advice on film and life choices and, more recently, to report WRIs.

What is a Wri, you ask? It is just one of the many acronyms Wittertainment correspondence can contain, the most frequent being:

Ltl: long-term listener.

Stl: short-term listener.

Fte: first-time emailer.

Wri: a Wittertainment related injury, often the result of a sudden outburst of laughter or Mark suddenly banging his hand on the desk, putting headphone-wearers at considerable risk.

Aals: Altitude Adjusted Lachrymosity Syndrome. Have you ever noticed that you have a greater tendency to cry at films whilst on a plane? You’re not alone... and it’s something to do with the cabin pressure.

In the last year, emails from Church members have frequently opened with ‘wassup’: a phrase Simon often begins the podcast with, asking Mark “wassup with your bad self?” Other phrases you are likely to hear in the course of the show include ‘two-d’ and ‘threed’ (a much more efficient, and let’s face it cooler, way of saying 2D and 3D), ‘tinkety tonk old fruit and down with the Nazis’ (a sign-off adopted by correspondents after it came to light that the Queen Mother ended all of her wartime letters with this phrase) and, of course, ‘Hello to Jason Isaacs’.

Friends and features of the show

Go to Google and search for Jason Isaacs. Have a look at what appears at the top of the search results page. There you go, proof if ever you needed it that everyone is a fan of Wittertainment. It has become Wittertainment tradition to say ‘hello to’ the famous friends of the show, with Jason taking top billing as he was a schoolmate of Mark’s. Also, like everyone who is a friend of the show, he’s just an all-around top guy. Among the other famous names who receive a ‘hello’ are Stephen Fry, David Morrissey, Tom Hanks, Sanjeev Baskar and more recently the lovely Tom Hiddleston, with some of these film review friends having taken to the microphones when the men themselves are on the cruise (see ‘The Wittertainment Cruise’).

The weekly Wittertainment podcast will always open with some Class A wittering. More often than not, Mark is unaware that Simon – or the eagle-eyed and much loved Producer Robin – has clicked the record button and will ask if the podcast has started, followed by any excuse to bring up The Comsat Angels. In the course of the show, you can expect the ‘Top 10’ (a relatively short and comprehensive overview of the top 10 films at the Box Office and Mark’s opinions of them), a selection of film reviews from Mark interspersed with fan emails and a celebrity interview with Simon. The show is rounded off with Mark’s ‘Film of the Week’, ‘TV Movie of the Week’ and ‘DVD of the Week’, the latter even having its own theme music to which Mark and Simon have taken to chuckling over before fans attempt to guess Mark’s choice. The fun and shenanigans also continues beyond this flagship film review show as Wittertainment has its finger on the pulse with Facebook, Twitter, a “Snaptat” account and even a ‘Wittr’ app. Designed by a dedicated listener, the app and enables listeners to geo-locate fellow Wittertainees all around the globe. Mark and Simon initially stressed that they are not affiliated with this app, before admitting that it fuels their now extremely opulent lifestyles and has brought them wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

The Code of Conduct

Whilst Wittertainment is a very inclusive show, there are a few rules. All the best groups have them. For Mark and Simon, there are strict cinema-going rules that can be downloaded and affixed to a feature wall here. Love film but hate the disruptions that ruin the experience? So do Mark and Simon. Encountering a Code of Conduct-abiding screening is such a rare delight and, alas, you cannot claim to be a true member of the Church unless you consistently follow these cinema guidelines. Highlights include not using the cinema as a babysitter, no knitting during a film, no foraging of any kind and Turning Off Your Phone. If you would like to see Mark and Simon’s bad selves explain the Code of Conduct in their own words, follow this link. Soft rolls with no filling all around!

Things that Mark and Simon like

For those unfamiliar to the show, Mark Kermode may be best known for his rants. It is true that when Mark hates a film he does not hold back (we all know the Sex And The City 2 and Pirates Of The Caribbean 3 reviews), but his attitude towards film and his overall outlook is very optimistic. He will only unleash his signature Kermodian rants on the most deserving of film subjects and ultimately wants to enjoy what he is about to watch, whether that involves a comedy film passing his ‘6 Laughs Test’ or a drama moving him to tears.

Mark likes Manchester (he went to university there), The Exorcist (his favourite film of all time) and flapping his hands in cinema-induced excitement. Simon likes Warwick (he went to university there), doing creepy voices to scare Mark and putting on a different jumper to transform himself into Peter from Germany (a confession of his childhood alter-ego that was met with much hilarity). The pair are apparently never happier than when they are in possession of a ‘fart gun’: a toy from the film Despicable Me 2 that they can be heard firing at one another whilst giggling “hehehe Bottom” in the style of the mischievous yellow Minions. The pair also enjoy chatting about their joint-family holidays and the antics of their spouses; for Mark ‘the good lady professor her indoors’ and for Simon ‘the good lady ceramicist her indoors’.

Mark frequently mentions his other favourite films, including Mary Poppins and Dougal And The Blue Cat as well as a film that he tracked down from his childhood cinema-going experience, Jeremy. Mark wants Simon to see Jeremy. Simon doesn’t fancy seeing Jeremy. The jury is still out as to whether the Good Doctor (a nickname for Mark whose Phd was on horror fiction) has managed to convince Simon to see what, in his view, is a cinematic masterpiece. For Simon, the name Jeremy is met with the same disdain as the long-running and somewhat stale joke about an iPod being referred to as a ‘fruit-based device’. Mark also has a tendency to sigh, or even just pause briefly, before he is about to give a review of a film, something Simon has recognised to be a sign of a negative review on the way. The pair have also become quite adept at signalling when Producer Robin will begin to play a track of birdsong to censor their witterings, something that has happened on the podcast on a few occasions during these tumultuous political times.

The Wittertainment Cruise

How do you get tickets for the cruise? You just get tickets for the cruise. It might be worth explaining that this approach is integral to the Wittertainment philosophy. It’s very simple to do something; you just do it. In this spirit, it is very easy to get the cruise to stop at your port of choice because you just get Mark and Simon to pull the cruise liner over.

For full details of previous guests and embarkation points it is worth consulting the Witterpedia page on the Cruise. For those of you who are completely confused, I don’t want to say that the cruise is not a real event per se, just that you might find it more fun if you use your imagination. When Mark and Simon take their summer holiday and leave us bereft of their on-air company for at least a couple of weeks, fear not, because it means that the Wittertainment Cruise is coming to a port near you! Mark and Simon are very flexible about stop-offs and also promise everyone a go at taking the helm. The cruise is bursting at the seams with Code of Conduct-abiding screenings of the latest flicks, celebrity faces and activities that include quoits, shuffleboard and a limbo competition. Simon is the current reigning limbo champion having defeated the affectionately nicknamed Sir Ken Chuckles Branagh.

It is little wonder that Wittertainment is such a long-running, astronomical success. Not only do Mark and Simon really know their stuff, they’re very humble and infinitely generous to their listeners. Whilst Kermode And Mayo’s Film Review is theirs, Wittertainment is a community that they built with their listenership. If you love film, you’ll love this radio show and podcast, but chances are you’ll fall for this show anyway. On top of the expert film criticism and all of the shenanigans, Wittertainment has a great deal of heart, and sometimes all you need is to hear Mark’s trademark reassuring phrase: “Everything is going to be alright.” »

Despicable Me 3 Final Trailer Locks the Minions in Prison

24 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gru remembers that it's good to be bad again in the third trailer for Universal and Illumination's highly-anticipated sequel Despicable Me 3. This trailer comes just days after we got our first look at the brand new Minion named Mutiny Mel, who leads a revolt among the Minions, which we can see in this new trailer has landed them all in jail. One particularly interesting scene in the trailer shows all of these minions making a run for it and trying to escape from (or break into) what looks like the Universal Studios lot, since we can see a poster for Sing in the background and the security guards' hats have logos that look quite similar to the Universal Studios log.

Regardless of what the Minions are doing at this studio, their mutiny leads to them being locked in the state prison, where they've seemed to take over the joint, »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Is One Of The Best Selling Blu-Rays Of All-Time

13 May 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Say what you want about Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – and a lot of people have said a whole lot of things – but even over a year since the hugely divisive film hit theatres, it’s still making headlines and whether you loved it or loathed it, it’s set the foundation for an absolutely massive cinematic universe, what with the recent announcements of projects like Nightwing and Batgirl, in addition to everything else that’s already coming down the pipeline.

Not only that, but despite the critical mauling it took, no one can deny that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was a financial success. Sure, perhaps not as successful as Warner Bros. had hoped it would be, but a worldwide haul of $873 million is nothing to scoff at. It may not hold a candle to some of the juggernauts over in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, »

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Becomes Highest Grossing PG Film Ever in U.S.

9 May 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Beauty and the Beast” beckoned “Be our guest,” and audiences answered.

Disney’s live-action remake of the 1991 original earned enough, as of Sunday, to become the highest grossing PG-rated movie of all time in the U.S. With $487.7 million at the domestic box office, the film passed “Finding Dory” ($486.3 million) to earn the title.

“Beauty” does not, however, hold the crown when taking into account earnings overseas. That award goes to “Frozen,” which is made $1.28 billion globally in 2013, compared to the 2017 movie’s current total, $1.19 billion. “Beauty” is still showing strong in theaters (it made the top five domestically this past weekend), so there is a chance is could pass its icy competitor. But either way, it’s a win for Disney.

Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy 3: what happened?

9 May 2017 6:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie May 10, 2017

As word emerges of a Hellboy reboot, we look at why we never got director Guillermo del Toro's long hoped-for second sequel...

Few movie projects have toyed with our emotions as brutally as Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy 3. Ever since 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army left the story of Big Red open to all kinds of possibilities, it seemed only natural that del Toro and Ron Perlman would return to make at least one more movie. Instead, what followed was a lengthy on-again, off-again saga that generated lots of headlines and social media gossip, but nothing more substantial than that.

I’m honestly amazed that it has taken this long for Frozen – the highest grossing movie of 2013 – to get a sequel.  The movie grossed well over a billion dollars at the box office, beating out the likes of Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, The Desolation of Smaug, Catching Fire and Fast & Furious 6.  It raked in nearly double what Man of Steel made that same year and stayed in theaters for the better part of a year.  And it’s only now getting a sequel.
