mario movie

The last time Mario and Luigi leapt across the big screen, they were played by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo in a 1993 live-action film that set the stage for the many, many bad and misguided video game adaptations to follow. But maybe live-action was just the wrong fit for the famed video game duo. Maybe animation is the right track.

A new Super Mario Bros. movie could come our way via Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets. All Nintendo needs to do is sign on the dotted line.

The Secret Life of Pets 2

The Secret Life of Pets was a runaway family film hit at the box office after pulling in $368.3 million at the domestic box office and $875.4 million worldwide. Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment were so happy with the results that they quickly ordered a sequel to arrive in the summer of 2019. But in light of recent events, that sequel will be missing one of the original film’s voice stars.

Louis C.K. has been removed as one of the voice stars of The Secret Life of Pets 2 following his admission to committing several acts of sexual misconduct throughout his career. The comedian played Max, the Jack Russell Terrier who got caught up in a series of misadventures in New York City along with his unwelcome new mutt companion Duke (Eric Stonestreet), but he will now be replaced with another actor.

Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie Trailer

It’s been 13 years since Nickelodeon’s original animated series Hey Arnold! went off the air, but everyone’s favorite football head will return to the children’s cable network just in time for the Thanksgiving leftovers.

Hey Arnold! already received a feature film back in 2002, but now a new TV movie is slated to premiere on Nickelodeon on November 24, the day after Thanksgiving. The first trailer for Hey Arnold!

Specifically, they’re trying to find Arnold’s parents. Read More »

Guillermo del Toro Pinocchio

Another day, another potential Guillermo del Toro project that we’ll never see. Mr. del Toro is one of the best filmmakers in the business, and he has a tendency to find himself attached to numerous projects, some of which actually get made, others which slip into oblivion. Sadly, it looks like del Toro’s take on Pinocchio falls into the latter category. The Shape of Water filmmaker recently confirmed his Pinocchio film is officially cancelled. It seems no amount of wishing on a star will make the dream of the Guillermo del Toro Pinocchio movie come true.

Early Man trailer

The folks at the British animation studio Aardman are responsible for beloved movies like Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace and Gromit, and while CG has largely won out as the dominant form of animation for most major movies, Aardman’s sticking with claymation for a decidedly old school look. That’s especially appropriate for their new film Early Man, which is about as old school as you can get: it’s the story of cavemen butting heads with new technology.

Check out a brand new Early Man trailer below.

Ferdinand trailer

In the wake of trailers like Peter Rabbit and Sherlock Gnomes that dropped earlier today, 2oth Century Fox and Blue Sky Animation’s upcoming movie Ferdinand looks almost pleasant. Sure, there are the butt jokes that seem to be a requirement in all non-Disney or Pixar animated kids films these days, and yes, things get a bit too on the nose when the titular bull (voiced by John Cena) ends up in – you guessed it – a china shop, but all things considered, this could be a whole lot worse. Check out a new international Ferdinand trailer and a new clip below.
