In All the Wilderness, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) plays a young guy who isn’t dealing well with the loss of his father. His shrink (Danny DeVito) isn’t making much headway with the kid’s problems, but McPhee’s character meets a group of isolated kids, which leads him into a new life. The film looks gorgeous, and there are some good moments in this first trailer. Watch the All the Wilderness trailer after the break.

There really isn’t much Josh Gad can’t do. He’s a Tony-Award nominated stage performer, a dramatic actor, comedic actor, a voice actor and even a writer. On that last front, Gad has long been attached to co-write a sequel to the 1988 hit film, Twins. The film is called Triplets and would once again star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as the unlikeliest of twin brothers. Except, this time, they’d find out they have a new brother, played by Eddie Murphy.
It’s a concept that seemingly has been floating around for years, but in a recent AMA Gad offered an update. He said the script, which he co-wrote with Ryan Dixon, is done but Universal has it on hold. Read Josh Gad’s Triplets movie update below. Read More »
Unlike live-action Hollywood films, animation isn’t star-driven. Stories are the stars in animation and, if you don’t believe it, look at the biggest animated film of all time: Frozen. Talented actors and singers in every role, none of which can yet sell a movie wholly on their own. Still, having big stars in your animated film doesn’t mean it’s bad. Pixar regularly gets some of the biggest names in the world to voice their characters.
Which is to say, the newly announced cast members for the animated film Animal Crackers are a mixed bag. But it’s a great cast none the less. Produced by Blue Dream Studios, Animal Crackers will feature the voices of Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito, Ian McKellen, Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, Harvey Fierstein and others.

In 1992 Danny DeVito released his third directorial effort, Hoffa. That summer, he also appeared in Tim Burton‘s Batman Returns as a sludgy, grotesque version of the Penguin. What many people don’t realize is that the films connect through a talent beyond DeVito, as Burton was recruited for a very small cameo in Hoffa. Appropriately, DeVito had his Batman Returns director play a corpse.
Check out video below featuring Burton’s prep for the scene, and an alternate take of the cameo. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
A pre-April Fools’ day story that wasn’t actually a joke contained the announcement that Universal is developing Triplets as a sequel to Ivan Reitman‘s 1988 film Twins. The original comedy starred Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger as genetically-engineered brothers who learn of one anothers existence when they’re both adults.
Triplets doesn’t have a director at this point, or even a screenwriter, and the cast isn’t yet signed. But the idea is for DeVito and Schwarzenegger to return, with Eddie Murphy stepping in as a third long-lost brother.
Danny DeVito has spoken in general terms about doing a Twins sequel in the past, and now we’ve got some enthusiastic quotes from Schwarzenegger. He seems wildly confident about the prospects for the film. Read More »
Rumors have flown for the past year of a possible sequel to Twins, the 1988 comedy in which Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger starred as genetically engineered but not quite identical brothers. And now that second film is really happening: Universal and Montecito Picture Co. are developing a film that will follow Twins. But Twins 2 isn’t quite going to cut it; this film will be called Triplets. And if things work out the way the companies want, Eddie Murphy will be the third brother. Read More »

So much for that liberal, pro-environment, anti-industrialist agenda Fox News accused The Lorax of pushing. In a truly WTF bit of cross-promotion, the title character of Dr. Seuss‘ nature-friendly fable is shilling for the 2013 Mazda CX-5. That’s right: The feisty Lorax, who famously “speaks for the trees,” is promoting an SUV, and not even a hybrid at that. This makes even less sense than the time China Glaze encouraged us to identify with the dangerously frivolous Capitol folks by buying Hunger Games-themed nail polish. Watch the Lorax-themed Mazda commercial after the jump.
