Elsa Frozen

Two years ago, I was at Disney Animation Studios to learn about Wreck It Ralph. At the same time, there were some photos on the wall from this little movie called Frozen. When I asked about them, everyone was very coy. They mentioned the film would be about two princesses and set in the snow, but that was about it. How could I know that behind those walls, animators were making what would become a multiple Oscar-winner and the biggest animated film of all-time?

Now, you too can step into Disney Animation Studios and learn about Frozen. Disney will air The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic on Tuesday September 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC. It’s all new hour of behind the scenes footage about the film, which will also include a sneak preview of their latest, Big Hero 6, and promises to “include some exciting announcements about the next chapter of Frozen and a never-before-seen preview of “Frozen” characters Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC’s smash-hit Once Upon a Time.” Does that just mean the upcoming books? Or could it possibly refer to a movie? Read more about the Frozen TV special below. Read More »

The Book of Life trailer

Following her latest out-of-this-world role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Zoe Saldana is allowed to get a little more grounded in the new Book of Life trailer. But just a little.

The Guillermo del Toro-produced epic starts out in our world, but then spills over into the land of the dead and the land of the forgotten. At the center of the tale is Manolo (Diego Luna), a young man who harbors dreams of becoming a musician.

Saldana plays Maria, the object of Manolo’s affections, and Channing Tatum rounds out the lead cast as Joaquin, Manolo’s friend and rival. Ice Cube and Christina Applegate also star. Watch the new Book of Life trailer after the jump.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles elevator

In my recent review of Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I said the following:

There’s one fantastic scene of the four Turtles. Together in an elevator, they start beat-boxing. It’s dumb, but also funny and charming. That’s what this movie is missing.

And I’d like to think Paramount listened to me, because that scene is now online. It’s the perfect juxtaposition of what’s right, and what’s wrong with the film. Watch the best scene in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie below. Read More »

If you’ve got some secret agent stuff that needs doing, you could hire James Bond. But he has to put on a tux for formal work. Why not hire a crew that is always wearing tuxes?

They’re masters of disguise and espionage, these guys (well, birds) and willing to leap into danger at a moment’s notice. In this new Penguins of Madagascar trailer we see some more of their antics, and also get to hear a bit more of Benedict Cumberbatch, as the voice of a classy spy outfit.
