In 2006 Warner Bros. released Happy Feet, the animated singing/dancing penguin movie that was then the latest step in George Miller‘s strange career. (Mad Max –> Babe –> Happy Feet.) Now he’s back with a sequel, Happy Feet Two, and the first teaser is out. The animation looks good, but if you aren’t looking for a penguin-performed pop music mixtape, then best give this one a pass. Read More »

Oh, look, a new Smurfs trailer. The good news is that this trailer is not as painfully horrible as the first one. The bad news is that it is still a trailer for The Smurfs
. But if you want to see mushroom houses, Gargamel (Hank Azaria
) on the hunt and a moment where Neil Patrick Harris
breaks down over the little blue creatures’ overuse of the word ‘smurf,’ then hit the jump. Watch out for the product placement, though. Read More »
Briefly: Hopefully we’ll be all done with the casting updates for The Three Stooges by later this week. Our last update was that Will Sasso was looking like a lock for one role, with Moe and Curly as the 50/50 split for his choice. Curly was the obvious way to cast him, and that’s where Peter and Bobby Farrelly have gone.
So that’s one down, and with Will Sasso set as Curly, the Farrellys are free to cast the other Stooges. Word is they’re looking at Hank Azaria and James Marsden. Read More »
There is now a full-length trailer for The Smurfs, Sony’s live-action/animated hybrid which brings updated CGI versions of the Smurfs to New York City, where they run riot through the lives of Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays as they try to escape the clutches of the wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria). If that doesn’t sound like a horror film, that’s because you haven’t yet watched the trailer. Do so after the break, if you dare. Read More »
Peter and Bobby Farrelly are still on the hunt for their new Three Stooges. The cast was once assembled, with Benicio del Toro set to play Moe, Jim Carrey set for Curly and Sean Penn as Larry. But that splintered, starting when Sean Penn took a sabbatical from work, and late last year the film moved from MGM to Fox, where it is fast-tracked to shoot this spring.
But, as of now, there are no Stooges. Johnny Knoxville and Andy Samberg have been tenuously linked to roles, and the brothers have recently said that Benicio del Toro is still an option for Moe. Now, in an interview to promote Hall Pass, the brothers have mentioned an unlikely collection of additional options: Woody Harrelson, Larry David, Hank Azaria and Justin Timberlake. Read More »
In Hop, from Alvin and the Chipmunks director Tim Hill, Russell Brand voices a CGI version of the Easter bunny and James Marsden plays the human who gets stuck taking care of him. Well, it isn’t the Easter bunny exactly, but a young bunny who has been tapped to be the next global deliverer of eggs and candy. Close enough.
We’ve seen one teaser, which basically consisted of a CGI bunny playing drums, but now there is a full trailer. If you think you can be convinced that this idea is a good one, by all means press on to the point beyond the break. Read More »
In April, we posted the first set photos of Hank Azaria as Gargamel in Sony Pictures Animation/Columbia Pictures’ big screen CGI/live action hybrid 3D adaptation of The Smurfs. Many commentors thought Azaria looked ridiculous. You haven’t seen anything yet. The film is currently shooting in New York City, and recently shot a sequence outside FAO Schwarz where someone with a video camera caught Azaria in action. Check out the footage, after the jump.
