DreamWorks Animation doesn’t have quite the consistent track record that Pixar does, but when they get it right, they really get it right. Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon have been among the best non-Disney animated features in recent years, and Madagascar is the rare franchise that seems to be improving with each installment.
Their next project combines Dragon co-director Chris Sanders and Space Chimps writer-director Kirk De Micco with a star-studded cast (Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, etc.) to tell the tale of a prehistoric family venturing out of their cave to explore the strange, colorful world outside. Check out a new sneak peek after the jump.

With Ruben Fleischer‘s Gangster Squad hitting theaters today, Warner Bros. is squeezing in one last extended trailer. Based on true events, the drama follows a special force of LAPD officers who are tasked with breaking the mob’s iron grip on the city of Los Angeles. The new three-minute promo offers looks at Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling‘s incorruptible cops, but it mostly highlights Sean Penn‘s scenery-chewing performance as gangster king Mickey Cohen. Watch it after the jump.

DreamWorks just took a giant bath on Rise of the Guardians, but is soldiering on with the task of selling its upcoming slate. The next release from the company’s animation arm is The Croods, an Ice Age-style story about a prehistoric human family who daughter (voiced by Emma Stone) is desperate to explore the outside world. The Croods are forced out of their cave only to come face to face with a strapping young hero (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) willing to guide them away from the end of the world.
This new trailer isn’t as effective as the first teaser was, in part, I think, because it focuses on goofier lowbrow humor, rather than spectacle. But there’s an audience that will love this, I’m sure, so have a look below. Read More »

There was no shortage of things to love about Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man, but perhaps the highlight was the budding romance between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). The actors shared the kind of crackling chemistry that’s tough to fake, comfortable and sexy in all the right measures. (The stars themselves apparently agreed, sparking a real-life romance during their time together on set.) A clip from a screen test has just hit the web, making it crystal clear why Stone landed the gig.
Then, if that video has you eager to see more of the pair together, we have some good news about a possible IMAX-exclusive cut of the sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Watch the clip and read about the IMAX release after the jump.
