Miles Morales Spider-Man animated movie

Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Homecoming is gearing up for production, but that’s not the only Spider-Man project in the works. Yes, the yet-to-be-titled Spider-Man animated movie from Sony Pictures Animation is scheduled to hit theaters in 2018, a year after Jon Watts’ live-action movie.

I’m sure The LEGO Movie/21 Jump Street helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have tried in many ways to differentiate their animated movie from the MCU entry coming in 2017. Now a new rumor claims that one of the ways they are approaching the franchise differently is in the identity of the webslinger. That’s right, the latest claim is that the animated Spider-Man movie will not focus on Peter Parker but instead Miles Morales, the teenage half-black half-Puerto Rican Spider-Man who was created in 2011. More details on the possible Miles Morales Spider-Man animated movie after the jump.

the little prince trailer

Despite being a critically well-regarded international hit with a recognizable line-up of voice talent that took home the Best Animated Feature Film trophy at the César Awards, earlier this year, The Little Prince has hit a few speed bumps on its way to American theaters. Originally scheduled for release on March 18, 2016, Paramount abruptly pulled the film from its schedule on March 11, with no explanation given. Netflix, with its seemingly bottomless bag of “Screw You, We’re Netflix” money, swooped in and rescued director Mark Osborne‘s film.

Now, the streaming service has unveiled a new The Little Prince trailer along with a release date.

pearl short film

One of my favorite Disney Animated films of all time is Patrick Osborne‘s short film Feast, which was released theatrically in front of Big Hero 6 and won an Academy Award. Well Osbourne has already released his follow-up, although most people haven’t seen it yet because he created it for Virtual Reality. But thanks to Google 360, you can now watch it online in any browser, although you still can rotate the video around to look in any direction.

Finding Dory Clip

I was as hesitant about a sequel to Finding Nemo as anyone else, but the closer we get the release date of Finding Dory, the more optimistic I get regarding this whole film. It looks gorgeously animated, funny and charming. Most importantly, there are shreds of evidence in the various trailers that suggest this talking fish movie will reduce me to a blubbering mess in true Up and Inside Out fashion. Bring it on, Pixar. This wouldn’t be the first time you’ve brought a sledgehammer down upon my fragile emotions.

The first Finding Dory clip that has debuted online doesn’t feature any heartstring tugging, but it does feature the return of few familiar faces and it’s perfectly adorable.

X-Men Animated Series Honest Trailer

For many children of the 90s, their first experience with X-Men came in the form of the animated series that aired Saturday mornings on FOX. Plenty of those kids still view that adaptation of the comic as the definitive version of the X-Men, even moreso than the big screen franchise that has been playing out over the past 16 years.

So with X-Men: Apocalypse hitting theaters this weekend, there’s no better time to take aim at X-Men: The Animated Series with an Honest Trailer. But this particular installment pays plenty of compliments where they’re due. Watch the video after the jump. Read More »

The Cobbler Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler‘s last two animated features, Hotel Transylvania and its sequel, made over $825M combined at the worldwide box-office. They’re his two most financially successful films of the past decade. Sandler’s Happy Maddison Productions, founded in 1999, weren’t involved in the Hotel Transylvania pictures, but the actor and his production company are now working on a new animated feature for STX Entertainment.

Lesbian couple in Finding Dory

Disney has been known to be a very progressive company (having brought the first openly gay sitcom character to network television in 1997 on the Ellen show) but they have recently come under fire from GLADD for not featuring even one gay character in the 11 feature films they released last year. There is no denying it, there is a lack of representation of gay characters in Disney’s big screen movies.

Fans recently petitioned the studio to give Elsa a girlfriend in Frozen 2, GLAAD called upon the studio to include LGBT characters in the Star Wars universe while the filmmakers and producers at Marvel have been very encouraging of the idea of bringing an openly gay character to the MCU. And while we might have to wait a bit longer to see an openly gay major character in one of those universes, I was happy to see what might be a lesbian couple in this morning’s Finding Dory trailer.

the adventures of panda warrior trailer

As long as there are successful Hollywood franchises, there will be rip-offs. This is true in America, where companies like the Asylum have built an entire business model around making movies that look just similar enough to major blockbusters to confuse grandparents and stoners. However, it’s especially true on the international stage, where scrappy filmmakers all over the world have been abusing copyright for decades now. I highly recommend Remake, Remix, Rip-Off, a wonderful documentary about the anarchic world of Turkish cinema in the ’60s and ’70s if you want so see examples of some truly, beautifully shameless filmmaking.

But today, we’re turning our eyes to China, who have produced a Kung Fu Panda rip-off that looks like it clawed its way out of the deepest recesses of your nightmares. And because the universe is cruel (or because parents will confuse it with the other movie about the martial artist panda bear and will pick it up without knowing better), it’s getting an American release courtesy of Lionsgate.

Sing Trailer

Illumination Entertainment has a couple of new animated movies hitting theaters this year. The first is the animal adventure The Secret Life of Pets, arriving this summer. But just before Christmas, Illumination will get musical with Sing. In what is basically Zootopia meets American Idol, one koala (Matthew McConaughey) decides to put on a huge singing competition to save his theater, and some average animals with incredible pipes look at it as their opportunity for a better life. Of course, it’s all fueled by an endless array of popular songs from yesterday and today.
