It feels like it’s been too long since we’ve gotten a new project from Guillermo del Toro. That might be because Crimson Peak was a bit of a disappointment last year, and we’ll be waiting until sometime next year to see his next movie, The Shape of Water, which started filming just a few months ago. But in the meantime, we’ll have a little something to hold us over.
Guillermo del Toro has been working with Netflix on an animated series called Trollhunters, adapted from a book he wrote himself with Daniel Kraus. While it’s clearly geared towards kids, it has some stylish animation and fantasy action that should keep his adult fans entertained until his new movie arrives. You can see what we’re talking about in a new Trollhunters featurette with new footage and some insight from del Toro himself. Read More »
At the end of last month, Netflix unveiled the first photos from their animated series Trollhunters, created by Guillermo del Toro and based on the young adult novel of the same name that he wrote with Daniel Klaus. Now the first trailer for the DreamWorks Animation show has debuted online, and it actually looks pretty decent.

“Where do babies come from?” is the question all parents dread hearing, at least according to every family sitcom ever. But if you can wait ’til fall to have the talk, Warner Bros.’ Storks can help you out with a kid-friendly, completely scientifically accurate accounting of how exactly the process works.
As all of us adults know, of course, it begins with the Baby Making Machine on Stork Mountain. The device spits out a tiny human, and a bird (possibly one that sounds exactly like Andy Samberg) is assigned to drop it off at its new home. Along the way, said bird will inevitably run into hilarious and adorable mishaps. Get a little peek at that incredible journey with the latest Storks trailer.

It’s going to be a while before we see Guillermo del Toro‘s next movie, which hasn’t even started shooting yet. But in the meantime, he’s got a new small-screen project coming our way, the Netflix animated series Trollhunters. And in typical del Toro fashion, he’s managed to round up quite a cast. Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, and Anton Yelchin will all lend their voices to the fantasy adventure, which is produced by DreamWorks Animation. Read More »
With the exception of Dr. Frasier Crane on both Cheers and the spin-off series Frasier, easily the best role Kelsey Grammer has played in his career is that of Sideshow Bob, the sidekick of Krusty the Clown on the long-running animated series The Simpsons. Grammer won an Emmy for his voiceover performance as the character in 2006, and he’s one of the fans’ favorite side characters from Springfield.
If you’re curious as to how Sideshow Bob came to be the character he is today, and who inspired the character’s rich voice that Grammer brings to life, you can find out pretty quickly. Kelsey Grammer recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show and discussed how he came to be involved with The Simpsons and the origin of Sideshow Bob’s voice. Read More »

After sending up pop stars with Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, Andy Samberg will move on to delivering babies. Storks stars Samberg as, yep, a stork, who’s tasked with delivering an adorable baby girl. The problem is that said baby is completely unauthorized, and could derail his career if he gets caught by his boss (Kelsey Grammer). You see, in the Storks version of the world, storks no longer deliver babies, having long ago switched to delivering packages for an Amazon-like retailer.
The logical question raised by this concept is who does deliver human babies in the Storks universe, now that the birds are no longer handling that task. Have humans had to resort to pushing them out of their bodies (you know, the way humans do in our real world)? Or has some other animal taken over delivering duties? The latest Storks trailer doesn’t answer those inquiries, but it does show a flustered Samberg warning his human friend Tulip about the dangers of baby cuteness.

Nicholas Stoller has already made a name for himself as a comedy director with films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Neighbors, and now he’s branching out with his first animated feature. Co-directed by Stoller and Pixar vet Doug Sweetland, Storks features the voices of Kelsey Grammer and Andy Samberg as storks who, instead of delivering babies, deliver packages for an online retailer.
Also starring are Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, for those of you who haven’t quite recovered from the end of Key & Peele, though you don’t hear them in the first promo. Watch the first Storks teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »
I’m just going to assume that you didn’t download the leak of The Expendables 3, and that if you’re waiting to see the film you can hang on for two more weeks. Here’s one final Expendables 3 trailer to make the wait easier, and this clip has plenty of action from Patrick Hughes’ sequel. Sylvester Stallone returns as the leader of a paramilitary gang, and this time the crew stares down a one-time comrade turned arms dealer played by Mel Gibson. It’s all action, and the roster of stars old and new is so huge that the returning cast members barely fit in the trailer. Read More »
