Briefly: Disney’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 just let out and we’ll have reactions to all the films Oz the Great and Powerful, The Lone Ranger, and more a little later this evening. Two pieces of news broke out of the Wreck-It Ralph section though. First up, Firefly fan-favorite actor Alan Tudyk has been announced as the voice of King Candy, likely an important character in the game Sugar Rush. Another in-movie game, Hero’s Duty, is a first person shooter starring Jane Lynch and director Rich Moore announced popular dubstep musician Skrillex will be writing all the music for that part of the game. Bangarang.
We’ll have more on Wreck-It Ralph and all the rest of Disney panel soon.

Since the run-up to the release of Blue Sky Studios’ Ice Age in 2002, the best spokesman — spokesanimal? — for the film series has been a creature that can barely speak. The acorn-obsessed Scrat, a sabre-toothed squirrel, has starred in trailers and shorts and is one of the most consistently entertaining parts of the actual films. With the latest film in the series, Ice Age: Continental Drift, hitting theaters in July 2012, Fox and Blue Sky are way ahead of the curve in getting the word out. The first part of the short Scrat’s Continental Crack-Up showed up way back in January of this year, and now we’ve got the conclusion. Check it out below. Read More »

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil has been making the festival rounds since last January’s Sundance Film Festival, but it wasn’t until last week that the film finally got a rather limited U.S. theatrical release. Starring Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine, Eli Craig‘s comedy turns the hillbilly horror subgenre on its head by telling the story from the rednecks’ perspective. Tucker (Tudyk) and Dale (Labine) are just two well-meaning pals trying to enjoy a quiet fishing weekend in their admittedly run-down cottage. But when a group of obnoxious college kids arrive in their neck of the woods, one deadly misunderstanding leads to another.
It seems like enough gore and (hilarious) tragedy to last poor Tucker and Dale a lifetime, but Craig has other ideas. After the jump, read Craig’s thoughts on a potential sequel for the beleaguered backwoods buddies.

Sometimes there’s no way to make a casting roundup conform to any sort of sense. Such is the case here, as we’ve got info on a wild reality-based political thriller set in 1979, an animated sequel, and an indie family drama with a very unlikely cast. In other words, after the break you’ll find info on:
- Monsters star Scoot McNairy joining Ben Affleck’s Argo,
- Nick Frost and seven hundred other actors doing voices for the fourth theatrical Ice Age movie,
- and an indie called Little Boy, which has Kevin James and Emily Watson set to star.

Tucker & Dale Vs Evil premiered at Sundance 2010, and despite earning a lot of fans with the performances of Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine and the comedy and horror mix that writer/director Eli Craig offered up, the film has been in distribution limbo ever since.
That changes now, as Magnet has announced that it will distribute the film at the end of this summer, with an August 26 VOD bow and a September 30 theatrical opening. Full plot info (via the press release) is after the break along with an early trailer. We’ll give you whatever trailer Magnet concocts as soon as it is available. Read More »
With the approaching release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, images from the film are starting to get out into the wild. It seems like there are certain requirements for any Transformers stills that don’t feature robots: they’ve got to have explosions, Shia LaBeouf running, or characters appearing to cautiously move through a location. And now we’ve got an image to cover each one of those bases for the third film. Check ‘em out after the break. And, sorry, no robots. Read More »
