Last year Steve Carell put forth a fantastic performance in the Amazon Studios movie Last Flag Flying. Unfortunately, not enough people saw it to start any real awards buzz, but it’s an outstanding drama that’s worth your time. Apparently looking for some awards buzz yet again, Steve Carell is back with a much stranger dramatic turn, one that comes with an odd blend of comedy, tragedy and animation from director Robert Zemeckis.
Welcome to Marwen follows Steve Carell as Mark Hogancamp, a man who is attacked by a group of Nazi assholes (a prospect that is sadly all too real nowadays), leaving him with severe memory loss and some serious post-traumatic stress. In order to cope with the aftermath of this attack. Mark builds a miniature model of a town called Marwen where he lives out wild fantasies that give him the strength to face his struggles in the real world. It’s all rather surreal and odd, and you can watch the Welcome to Marwen trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »
Trolls came out in 2016, and it’s taken me this long to get Justin Timberlake‘s “Can’t Stop The Feeling” song from the film out of my head. But my relief was short-lived, because DreamWorks Animation just lodged that song back in my brain again by announcing the official title of the second movie in the franchise: Trolls World Tour. Read more about the upcoming sequel, as well as a new project they’re working on called Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts. Read More »
The How To Train Your Dragon trilogy is coming to an end, and it will probably make you cry. No, not over Hiccup’s glorious new beard (though that is worth shedding a few awestruck tears over), but over the bold and life-affirming story of friendship between a boy and his dragon that director Dean DeBlois has been building for the past decade.
We spoke to DeBlois about How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, and how the third and final film of the DreamWorks franchise will explain why “dragons are no more.” And yes, we did ask about Hiccup’s beard. Read More »
The time has come for the How to Train Your Dragon franchise to end. But before it does, Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his Night Fury dragon companion Toothless have one more adventure to go on, and it could change both of their lives forever.
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World takes us to a mysterious new place where there are dragons no one has ever seen before. One of them includes a sparkly, white dragon appropriately called a Light Fury, and as you can see in the first How to Train Your Dragon 3 trailer, Toothless is immediately smitten with this stunning creature.
