Nearly a year ago, we found out that Sony was going to take The Smurfs in an all-new direction on the big screen. Instead of continuing the live-action animation hybrid franchise, they opted to have Sony Pictures Animation develop an all-new animated film that would essentially reboot the blue creatures on film. Now the film has a title and more voices to add to its roster.
The movie is called Smurfs: The Lost Village, and it will follow Smurfette (Demi Lovato) on a journey to find out what her purpose in life is, and why she’s the only girl in the village. But she won’t be alone, as her three brothers Brainy, Hefty and Clumsy will be joining her. But who will be voicing the sibling trio? Find out below along with the first Smurfs The Lost Village images. Read More »

Man, Zootopia sure looks cute. Like really cute. Okay, it looks adorable. Heart-meltingly adorable. Every trailer for this film has made me saw “aww” more than I’d care to admit, because it’s not like an animated Disney film starring a colorful cast of easily merchandisable rabbits and foxes and what-have-you needs my help. Zootopia certainly looks like it has the potential to be huge without me gushing about nice it looks.
Two new clips from the film have arrived online highlighting Ginnifer Goodwin rabbit police officer Judy Hopps. And yes, both of them are unreasonably, unbearably cute.

If the Minions aren’t your cup of tea, then maybe you’ll be more interested in one of Illumination Entertainment’s other projects coming this year. The Secret Life of Pets is the next one from the animation studio arriving this summer, but just before Christmas this year, they also have the musically charged Sing.
Like many animated movies, this one takes place in a world where animals live like humans, and one koala has fallen on hard times, unable to keep his theaters up and running. So in a last ditch effort to keep the place alive, he decides to throw an epic singing competition, and some clips of the animals auditioning for the show have just debuted before the official teaser trailer arrives next week. Watch the Sing audition clips after the jump and prepare to tap your feet. Read More »
How can a forgetful fish, who doesn’t remember anything about her past, find her family? We’ll find out this summer when Disney and Pixar Animation bring their sequel Finding Dory to theaters.
So far we’ve only seen a little bit of the new adventure as Dory (Ellen Degeneres) starts to have flashes of her past, driving her to finally seek out her long-lost parents, who will be voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy. But a new trailer might be on the way soon, because we just got a batch of new Finding Dory posters that are very fitting considering the film’s title. Plus, these posters just showcase how beautiful Pixar’s animation has gotten over the year, and I can’t wait to see how the underwater environments for Finding Dory have improved in the 13 years since Finding Nemo was released.

I have a single Stretch Armstrong memory. Many years ago, I was given a Stretch Armstrong toy that, according to the commercials, could stretch and bend in all kinds of ways before returning to his regular shape. I played with it for about 45 minutes and then it broke and splattered a strange, horrible goo all over the floor. I then hid the broken toy and promptly forgot about Stretch Armstrong for a long, long time.
But someone in Hollywood seems to have fond memories of this toy because they won’t stop trying to bring it to the screen in some capacity. After years of development hell that rival the difficulties facing the still-unmade Masters of the Universe movie, Stretch Armstrong has landed at a new home: as a kid-friendly series on Netflix.

Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life of Pets promises to reveal just what these creatures get up to when we’re not around, and the answers so far have ranged from obvious (eating human food they aren’t supposed to) to shocking (headbanging to heavy metal). Now the latest trailer starts to shape those cute little secrets into an actual story.
Louis C.K. voices Max, a terrier living in New York City. He loves life with his owner Katie (Ellie Kemper), and is dismayed when she brings home a new “brother” for Max, a big sloppy mutt named Duke (Eric Stonestreet). One thing leads to another, and before they know it Max and Duke find themselves caught up in an army of abandoned pets led by a bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart). Watch The Secret Life of Pets trailer after the jump. Read More »
