captain underpants trailer

In today’s edition of “Hey, do you want to feel old?”, we bring you the first trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, the big screen adaptation of author and illustrator Dav Pilkey‘s long-running children’s book series about a mean school principal hypnotized into thinking that he’s a superhero by two mischievous students. While the series began in the late ’90s, it’s a real staple for those who came of age in the ’00s…most of whom are now old enough to drive themselves to the theater for this movie.

You can check out the Captain Underpants trailer below.

Sesame Street Characters Reading Movie Quotes

Every kid grows out of Sesame Street at some point, but you never really stop loving the Muppets who helped teach you how to count, spell and do the right thing. That’s why every now and then, the characters from the Children’s Television Workshop are rounded up for content that’s mostly geared towards adults, but can be enjoyed by kids as well. Today, we have one of those videos.

Sesame Street is no stranger to making references to relevant, timely pop culture phenomena. We’ve seen Cookie Monster involved in an Avengers: Age of Ultron parody, and they’ve even spoofed television with some Game of Thrones mockery. This time, characters like Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert & Ernie, The Count, Grover, Oscar the Grouch and more have some fun by reciting some of the most famous movie quotes from history with adorable results.

We found out yesterday that it won’t be a musical, but the new film’s director just revealed what her version of the movie will be, and her description just might make up for the fact that we won’t be hearing “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” this time around.  Read More »

early man trailer

Aardman Animations may have entered the crowded CG animation world with films like Flushed Away and Arthur Christmas, but the creators of Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace and Gromit will forever be known for their stop-motion movies. Their latest project, Early Man, looks to be very much in line with their most popular work, taking their instantly identifiable style and applying it to a tribe of none-too-sharp prehistoric people. The film doesn’t hit theaters until next year, but the first trailer has arrived to announce the film’s existence to the world.

coco trailer

Pixar is releasing two new movies in 2017. First, we’re getting Cars 3, which feels like something of a safe bet because Pixar sequels are almost always a safe bet (Finding Dory made every last dollar on planet earth last year). But later in 2017, we’re getting Coco, the next film from Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, and it feels like a less sure move. Of course, Pixar’s “risky” moves have often resulted in some of their absolute best films, so let’s keep that in mind as we watch the first Coco trailer.

the muppets

ABC’s The Muppets television show revival was short-lived. While the series got favorable reviews, there was a sizable backlash from parents who didn’t think the adult-skewing humor was suitable for family viewing. After six episodes the network replaced showrunner Bob Kushell with Kristen Newman as part of their plans to creatively overhaul the series, but it was too little too late, and the ratings lead to the show being canceled at the conclusion of its debut season.

Frank Oz, who helped create and perform the Muppet characters of Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Animal, Sam Eagle and more, has now chimed in to explain why he believed The Muppets failed. Hit the jump to read his comments.
