Emily Blunt Jumps On ‘My Little Pony’

Emily Blunt in My Little Pony

Hasbro’s attempts to turn its toys into movies have yielded mixed results. For every Transformers, there’s a Battleship — or worse, a Monopoly, which still hasn’t managed to pass Go despite years of efforts. But there’s a lot riding on My Little Pony, based on one of the hottest properties in its stable. So Hasbro and Lionsgate have enlisted a big-name star to guide the film to success. Fans will get to see Emily Blunt in My Little Pony alongside Kristin ChenowethRead More »

DEADPOOL

It’s kind of a miracle that Deadpool even exists, after its titular character was nearly ruined by X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But this weekend, fans will finally have another chance to check out this Marvel Comics creation in an incarnation that’s much closer to the spirit of the original character.

Fox basically cut the budget of this film down to the bone, but despite this, I found the film to be a blast. Did it work for you? Was the plot too thin or just right? Did Deadpool’s schtick wear you out? Did the new X-Men characters make an impression?

Better Call Saul Season 2

If AMC puts out a show and Chris Hardwick isn’t there to talk about it with a bunch of celebrities immediately afterward, did it ever really air at all? Increasingly, the answer seems to be no. Following the success of Talking Dead and Talking Bad — Hardwick’s live talk shows about The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad — AMC has announced it’s launching Talking Saul. The first episode will air right after Better Call Saul‘s season 2 premiere on Monday.  Read More »

Smurfs The Lost Village

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.

Any character with longevity risks losing their identity. Just look to Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, who used to embark on wild, globetrotting adventures full of comedic mayhem and now spend their days acting as the literal mascots for the Walt Disney Company and little more. Time has turned them into symbols rather than characters, and those with the power to remind audiences of why they were beloved in the first place don’t want to risk tarnishing those symbols. After all, they move a lot of Mickey merchandise just by playing it safe.

Another victim of this phenomenon is Betty Boop, the most famous creation of the great animator Max Fleischer, whose Depression-era cartoon shorts are often still astonishing today. The years have transformed Ms. Boop, an adventure and disaster-prone flapper girl who starred in dozens of shorts throughout the 1930s and beyond, into a cartoon figurehead who exists just to appear on T-shirts and keychains. But now, that may change, as a new Betty Boop animated series is in the works.

Transformers Age of Extinction - Bumblebee

Earlier today, we reported that Paramount Pictures had set dates for Transformers 5, 6, and 7 in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Well, it turns out that wasn’t exactly accurate. While it is true we’re getting three more Transformers movies over the next three years, they won’t all be direct sequels. One of them will be a spinoff featuring Bumblebee (that’s the yellow one, for those of you who suffer from a Transformers-specific form of face blindness).  Read More »
