Trolls trailer

At Comic-Con, DreamWorks showed 15 minutes from their upcoming animated film Trolls. Based on the toys from the ’90s, it looked like co-directors Mike Mitchell (Sky High) and Walter Dohn‘s (SpongeBob SquarePants) were aiming higher than most movies based on toys. For starters, its soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake, who recorded his first single for the film since 2013. Some of the music choices added personality to the animation, but one sequence played to Gorillaz’ “Clint Eastwood,” as unsubtle as that sounds, made Trolls look more charming than we may have expected before Comic-Con.

Below, watch the new Trolls trailer.

Derek Cianfrance interview

With his adaptation of M. L. Stedman‘s bestselling novel, writer-director Derek Cianfrance wanted to make The Light Between Oceans a cross between a John Cassavettes movie and a Dean Lean film, a personal tale told against an epic backdrop. Cianfrance, both in his films and in person, proudly wears his influences on his sleeves, but The Light Between Oceans still features staples we’re now coming to expect from the filmmaker behind Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines.

Like the relationships in Cianfrance’s two previous dramas, Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) and Isabel Graysmark’s (Alicia Vikander) intense love for each other is tangible, intimate and often painful. When Isabel first enters a room, Tom’s face is lit up as if a miracle is unfolding before him. As Cianfrance tells us, he wants these seemingly minor moments to feel grand — but that’s not all we talk about with the filmmaker.

Below, read our Derek Cianfrance interview, in which he discusses with us the themes that tie his body of work together, his dreams of longevity as a director, the 209 hours of footage he shot for The Light Between Oceans, and more.

Gladiator Honest Trailer

This weekend brings the sword and sandal epic Ben-Hur to theaters, a new telling of the classic novel by Lew Wallace that was already turned into a movie back in 1959. Therefore, the folks over at Screen Junkies thought it would be appropriate to skewer one of the most successful sword and sandal epics of the past 20 years with an Honest Trailer.

Back in 2000, Gladiator was nominated for 12 Academy Awards and ended up taking home five of them, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Russell Crowe. There are many who don’t think the movie deserved to take home Best Picture that year, and now they can revel in the jokes made at the movie’s expense in the Gladiator Honest Trailer after the jump.

Boss Baby Comic-Con

Following the panel for DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, the animation studio decided to surprise the audience with the first footage from their forthcoming comedy The Boss Baby, starring Alec Baldwin, making his first appearance at Comic-Con.

The Boss Baby is inspired by the idea that when a new baby arrives at home, he’s basically the boss of the household with everyone’s schedule adjusting to what the baby wants whenever they want it. But the story takes that concept to a fantastical extreme as the baby acts like a no-nonsense, abrasive corporate executive, made all the better by the voice of Alec Baldwin, essentially bringing his 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy, mixed with his Glengarry Glen Ross character, to life as an animated baby.

So how was the footage shown during The Boss Baby Comic-Con panel? Find out after the jump along with an interesting detail about how the filmmakers decided to have Alec Baldwin take the titular role. Read More »

Trolls Comc-Con Panel

DreamWorks Animation brought their trippy animated musical adventure Trolls to Comic-Con this year. As we’ve seen in the trailers, it’s a feature film adaptation of the wild-haired dolls that became popular in the 1990s, and it brings a bunch of pop music hits to the big screen with a so many bright colors, weird characters and creatures, all making for a delightful acid trip that’s safe for kids.

The studio showed off about 15 minutes of footage from the movie, and I was surprised to find that this wasn’t just a showcase for a bunch of pop songs for no reason. Instead, it’s a musical where the songs really motivate the story and help develop the characters. Plus, the original songs executive produced by Justin Timberlake are bound to be favorites of kids and adults alike.

Trolls trailer

Troll dolls last peaked about twenty years ago, but now that the ’90s revival is in full swing, DreamWorks is making a valiant effort to bring back those tiny bright-haired creatures. Coming up from the studio this fall is Trolls, an animated adventure featuring the mellifluous voices of Justin Timberlake (who released his first new single since 2013 for it), Anna KendrickZooey Deschanel, Russell BrandJames Corden, and Gwen Stefani.

Timberlake leads the cast as a grumpy troll who must join forces with an extremely chipper troll (Kendrick) to fight a greater evil. Can these total opposites learn to respect each other and work together? Will they be able to vanquish the villain with the power of love and/or joy? Will the cranky one eventually open up to reveal the song in his heart? Tough questions, if you’ve never seen a movie before.
