2015 Oscar Predictions: First Look at the Best Animation Category

11 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We're going to take our first look at Best Animated Feature in today's newest 2015 Oscar predictions category. I've so far established 15 contenders for the category knowing full well there are other possibilities out there, which I will mention at the end of this post, but for now I think I've got the most likely contenders on this list while there may be more that will simply pad the field by year's end. Now, had I opened this category back in June when I first started putting the rankings together you would have seen a different film at the top of the list, but given the disappointing box office returns for How to Train Your Dragon 2, Dreamworks has opened the door for Laika to possibly take home their first Best Animated Feature Oscar as The BoxTrolls takes the #1 opening spot. Laika has Coraline, ParaNorman and even Tim Burton's Corpse Bride to their credit, »

Watch: New Trailer For Guillermo del Toro Produced Animated Film 'The Book Of Life'

11 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“The Book of Life” is immersed in the enduring push and pull between "tradition" and "innovation"; more simply, it's a story about growing up, set in the backdrop of the Mexican “Day of the Dead” holiday. The animated film, directed by CalArts alum Jorge Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo del Toro, just dropped its second trailer, and it looks to be a fantastic mix of surrealism and Mexican folk art.  Gutierrez told THR earlier this year, “All my favorite albums, all my favorite books and films…are all personal stories that take place in a very specific culture but that are universal… So I wanted to make something that happened in my family but make it for the world." Here's the official synopsis: It is the journey of Manolo (Luna), a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, »

October box office hopes are now on the shoulders of 'The Judge' and 'Gone Girl'

8 August 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If Hollywood and theater owners are depressed about the summer box office, they might be even more worried about what's coming this Fall. September is always a mixed bag, but at this point it looks like there won't be any blockbuster like "Gravity" to get people excited this October. In fact, it will be shocking if any film in September or October debuts to over $40 million. Just a few months ago there was some reason for some optimism.  Late September player "The Equalizer" with Denzel Washington should easily play for a few strong weeks, Robert Downey, Jr. is returning with a potential awards player in "The Judge," Seth Rogen and James Franco are reuniting for R-rated comedy "The Interview" and footage from Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Secret Service" turned heads from CinemaCon to Comic-Con. Unfortunately, and both due to production reasons, the latter two films have pushed to Christmas and February 2015 respectively. »

Death is just a minor setback for the heroes of producer Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming animated film Book of Life.  The latest trailer for the film shows Manolo (Diego Luna) competing with Joaquin (Channing Tatum) in a slap fight for Maria's (Zoe Saldana) affections. And if Manolo thought that was rough, wait until he journeys through three mystical realms and faces, among other things, a set of crushing boulders with minds of their own.  The expansive voice cast includes Christina Applegate, Ice Cube, Ron Perlman and Cheech MarinJorge Gutierrez directed and co-wrote the script.  20th Century

‘The Book of Life’ Trailer #2: Adventure Lies Ahead

7 August 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

20th Century Fox will release The Book of Life in theaters this fall, and the animated film may be worth a look for the visuals alone. The movie’s storyline, as was co-written by the director Jorge R. Gutierrez (El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera), follows the adventures of Manolo (voiced by Diego Luna), a young man out to fulfill his dreams. That includes winning the heart of Maria (Zoe Saldana), who makes it clear that’s easier said than done, in the above trailer.

Book of Life‘s second theatrical preview, similar to its previous trailer, doesn’t shed so much light on its plot as it does on the rich, colorful, and lively visual aesthetic of the film (inspired by traditional artwork for Mexico’s holiday Dia de Muertos), as well as the movie’s kid-friendly humor and cartoony hijinks. However, according to the official ...

Guillermo del Toro Talks Animated Ode to Mexico 'Book of Life' (New Trailer)

7 August 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Some weeks ago, Fox invited some scribes over to the Little Theatre to see preview footage of Guillermo del Toro-produced 3D animated/action adventure comedy/romance "The Book of Life," which comes out October 17, just before Halloween. Now they've released the trailer, below. Smartly, they're backing workaholic Del Toro's latest production, which will play like gangbusters to the under-served Hispanic audience, the fastest-growing moviegoer demo--as well as everyone else. Del Toro likes to take on talented young filmmakers like Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona, who followed up smart-house horror thriller "The Orphanage" with English-language tsunami drama "The Impossible" and TV's horrific "Penny Dreadful" and is now prepping "World War Z 2." This time the young filmmaker is Mexico City-born Cal Arts grad Jorge Gutierrez, who 4 1/2 years ago pitched Del Toro his vision of a magical Mexican Orpheus and Eurydice folk myth using »

Attach Guillermo del Toro’s name to your project, and it’s pretty much guaranteed that we’re all going to take a look at it. Luckily for The Book of Life, a vividly animated adventure hitting theaters this October, there’s a lot more to like than just that the Hellboy director is involved.
