Not too long ago, we learned that the DreamWorks Animation hit Shrek would be getting some kind of reboot from Illumination Entertainment. But before that happens, a huge group of filmmakers and animators have collaborated to remake the entire original movie from scratch.
Shrek Retold is a reimagining of the original Shrek with over 200 storytellers tackling a small segment of the movie in their own unique style. As you can see, it plays out like some kind of acid-fueled trip through the satirical fairytale with a mix of charming homemade live-action footage and animation. Check out the Shrek Retold trailer to see how wild this project is. Read More »

Almost Famous is a favorite among pretty much the entire /Film staff. Maybe it’s because the story of a young journalist caught up in the hustle and bustle of rock and roll isn’t too dissimilar from our own lives as we cover the daily beat of movie and television news, sometimes trekking across the world to visit film sets, attend movie premieres and interview Hollywood’s biggest stars. Or maybe it’s just because it’s a damn good movie from director Cameron Crowe. Now we might be seeing the filmmaker’s autobiographical story presented in a whole new way: a Broadway musical.

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 »
