assassin's creed animated series

Remember back in the day when we thought Assassin’s Creed could break the dreaded video game movie curse by actually being, you know, good? Well, so much for that. If a director as interesting as Justin Kurzel and a leading man as strong as Michael Fassbender can’t make it work, it may be time to pack it all in.

But no one told Ubisoft, the company behind the Assassin’s Creed series, who have recruited producer Adi Shankar to develop an animated series set in the world of the video games.

Pixar TV Show Pitches

Though Pixar Animation puts out some of the most popular animated movies in the business, but for the most part, they haven’t tried to bring their movies to TV. There have been shorts like Toy Story That Time Forgot and Toy Story of Terror, as well as shorts like the Cars Toons and Toy Story Toons. Plus, there was a 2D animated series called Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. But Fairly OddParents creator Butch Hartman has some great ideas for Pixar TV shows that would spin-off from some of their movies.

Castlevania cast

Producer Adi Shankar, the guy responsible for bootleg short films like the R-rated Power/Rangers and Venom: Truth in Journalism, has been hyping his upcoming animated television adaptation of the popular Nintendo video game Castlevania for a while now, and when the teaser trailer was released last month, fans finally got a taste of what he was talking about.

Now, in a new video, Shankar and actor Graham McTavish (whom you may recognize from his role as The Saint of Killers on AMC’s Preacher) have announced the major Castlevania cast members – including McTavish himself, who’s voicing Dracula, and The Hobbit trilogy star Richard Armitage, who’s voicing the vampire hunter Trevor Belmont.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Release Date

Wubba lubba dub dub! Attention, Rick and Morty fans, we officially know how much longer you’ll have to wait before seeing the rest of the third season of the Adult Swim animated series. Fans have been desperate for more from the sci-fi comedy series ever since the surprise season premiere on April Fools’ Day, and despite rumors behind the scenes that co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland were feuding, causing a delay in production, it was really just a matter of the duo taking too much time to get the season written and ready to go.

Now you can find out the Rick and Morty season 3 release date and get a taste of what’s coming in the rest of the season with a new trailer.

Despicable Me 3 trailer

In just seven years, Illumination Entertainment has turned the grouchy, pointy-nosed villain Gru and his yellow Minions into some of the most recognizable characters in all of pop culture. They’ve starred in multiple movies, they show up in theme parks, you can buy their toys, and so on. The characters are ubiquitous. This feat of marketing is even more fascinating in its success considering that the Despicable Me franchise has yet to produce a truly good film, a streak sadly continued by the latest, Despicable Me 3. Like the first two films, as well as the obnoxious Minions spin-off film from 2015, this new entry is a loud, manic, and frantic extended episode of an overly familiar sitcom.

My Little Pony movie trailer

While some people are excited about the prospect of seeing the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC Extended Universe brought to the big screen, there are those who might be even more excited by the prospect of seeing some adorable, colorful, friendly little equines finally make their way to movie theaters.

Watch the My Little Pony movie trailer below and try not to pass out from how saccharine it all is. Read More »

Despicable Me Honest Trailer

This weekend brings Despicable Me 3 to theaters as Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment look to capitalize on the somewhat extended holiday weekend for July 4th. So of course we have to watch an Honest Trailer that takes a look at the preceding adventures featuring Gru, the terrorist who is just likeable enough to keep the audience on his side.

Since Gru has slowly been losing his own franchise to his little yellow sidekicks known as minions, the rubbery, fart-obsessed gibberish speakers get mocked just as much as the movies that they star in.
