I put off seeing Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, because I had no associations with the book from which the film took inspiration, and I thought the film would be childish and ridiculous based on the title. I was wrong; the movie is super-charming and well-made.
This year we’ll see the sequel, and the first trailer has just been released. Two guys who worked on the first movie, Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, were chosen by the original film’s directors to helm this sequel, and they’re taking the chance to make a bigger, weirder movie. This trailer shows off the film’s new food-landscapes, and gives us a chance to hear Terry Crews as the returning character Officer Earl, voiced in the original film by Mr. T.
There are a few places where this trailer suggests that Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 relies on some of the jokes we liked in the first, but it’s still a fun, vivid bit of footage. Check it out below. Read More »

It’s not always the case that “family films” actually appeal to the whole family, but two that do are Monsters, Inc. and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. So even though we (as childless adults) may not be in their ideal target demo per se, we’ve very much looking forward to the sequels Monsters University and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. Both are due out later this year, and both have just released new posters which you can check out after the jump.

The cheeseburger rainstorms may have ceased for now, but Flint Lockwood’s battles with food are far from over. In this fall’s Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs sequel, Flint (Bill Hader) continues to deal with the consequences of his malfunctioning FLDSMDFR device when he discovers that it’s created a new race of food-animal hybrids — or “food-imals,” in the first of many groanworthy (but secretly hilarious… or not? Just me?) puns.
Initially, Flint and his girlfriend Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) are in awe of the lush, colorful creatures. But then, so were the characters in Jurassic Park with their dinosaurs, and we all know how that ended. Before long, the food-imals are threatening to take over entirely, and it’s up to Flint and Sam to save the town again. See the first images from the film after the jump.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller immediately marked themselves as filmmakers to watch with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, a sweet family CG comedy. So naturally, for their sophomore effort, they attempted to something completely different. 21 Jump Street is rowdy and live-action, and yet it retains much of the same heart and humor that made their first go-round such a hit. It’s no wonder they keep landing such intriguingly offbeat projects — the duo are now set to helm Warner Bros.’ Lego film and something called Bob the Musical, as well as produce Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers.
During the recent press junket for 21 Jump Street, the pair sat down with /Film to discuss their upcoming projects, the difficulties of transitioning into live action, their “chickenshit” fear of moving into drama, and Lord’s nefarious strategy to make sure Miller needs him forever. Read the full transcript after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Couple of bits of info on upcoming sequels for you today. First up, Brent Spiner, who played Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation and in several movies that followed, might like to appear in the upcoming Star Trek sequel currently being written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and J.J. Abrams. Emphasis on ‘might,’ however. In an online chat to promote his new series Fresh Hell, the actor joked about a possible role in the Trek sequel:
I am thinking more about the next Star Trek movie and more about who can I be in it. I did this character Arik Soong [on Star Trek Enterprise], not to be confused with Dr. Soong on the [TNG], this was his predecessor. And I would like to start a campaign, maybe right here tonight, its called BBS – Bring Back Soong. And I want you to flood JJ Abrams offices with that: BBS, Bring Back Soong.
So: little more than a joke, but not the worst one. Better to have Soong come back than Data, who would stick out amid the Abrams versions of the classic characters. After the break, we carry on with minor sequel news with a bit of info on the sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Read More »
