Pets

The folks that created the Minions are preparing to bring you another adventure involving adorable animated critters. Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, and Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) have joined the voice cast of an untitled Universal Studios / Illumination Entertainment picture about pets in New York City.

At the helm are Chris Renaud, who co-directed both Despicable Me movies, and Yarrow Cheney, who co-directed the adorable Minion mini-movie “Puppy.” Seriously, if you still haven’t seen that short, do so. It’s the cutest thing I saw all last year. Hit the jump for more details on their new project.

If last month’s trailer for The Lorax seemed surprisingly cutesy and sweet for an urgent environmental fable, perhaps the new Australian trailer will balance it out. Where the last one really played up the colorful setting and playful tone, the new video offers a much better look at the destruction the greedy Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms) hath wrought. Seriously, the Once-ler seems to live in some Seuss-ified version of the bleak post-apocalyptic landscape from The Road.

Based on a classic children’s book by Dr. Seuss, the film sees a young boy named Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) who sets out to learn the true story of how the Once-ler came to trash the Truffula trees over the warnings of the righteous, if slightly annoying, Lorax (Danny DeVito). Watch the new trailer after the jump.

All you’ll see of the film is some drumming bunny animation. And what of the story with James Marsden playing a guy who takes in the Easter Bunny after he accidentally injures the not quite mythical beast? None of that here, folks. But it does inform audiences that the film is from the folks behind Despicable Me. Check out the teaser after the break. Read More »
