Five years ago, we wrote about how Disney was developing a live-action/CG animation hybrid version of a Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers movie, based on the chipmunk pals who solve crimes with a few other pals like Gadget, Zipper, and Monterey Jack. Progress has been slow, but now the movie has a rather unexpected director.
Akiva Schaffer, the Lonely Island member and director of films like Hot Rod, The Watch, and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, has been hired to direct the movie, which is taking an unusual approach in its story. Read More »
After more than a decade, it’s time to ride back into Deadwood one final time. Creator David Milch has made good on his promise to conclude his Shakespearian Western, bringing back nearly every character audiences grew to love and hate over the three seasons of the original show. The end result is sweet and melancholy, and definitively finite. The impending future is a running theme through Deadwood: The Movie – a constant reminder to these aging characters that you can’t move forward without burying the past in a shallow grave.

Hey, remember last summer when Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon announced that they were working on a new Rugrats movie? But instead of being another animated take on the mischievous, precocious babies who started as a NickToon back in 1991, this new feature film adaptation was said to be a hybrid of live-action and computer animation used to bring the babies to life. Apparently no one at Paramount or Nickelodeon has realized what a horrifying idea this is, because the project now has a director. Read More »
Ten years ago, we wrote about how Warner Bros. wanted to make a new Tom and Jerry movie about the animated cat and mouse characters who are always at odds with each other. The film has been stuck in development hell for close to a decade, but since WB wants to put a renewed focus on animation, a new version is officially in the works.
Now the upcoming live-action/animation hybrid has cast its human lead: Chloë Grace Moretz, star of recent arthouse efforts like Greta, Suspiria, and The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Learn about the film’s plot below.

Last fall, Wonder Woman 1984 jumped far away from its original early November release date to the summer of 2020. As soon as that happened, the November 1, 2019 date was claimed by both the new big screen take on Charlie’s Angels and the upcoming sequel Terminator: Dark Fate. Neither property was willing to blink in this scenario…until now.
Charlie’s Angels has vacated the first weekend in November in favor of the November 15, 2019. And that will likely be a good thing for the Sony Pictures release, since it’s a sweet spot that many movies have done well in before. Read More »

The animated Scooby-Doo movie in the works over at Warner Bros. Animation Group is picking up steam as the rest of Mystery Inc. has been cast. Fans of Scooby-Doo were a little shocked when Will Forte stepped up to voice Shaggy, replacing live-action Scooby-Doo movie star Matthew Lillard, who has been voicing the character in cartoons and animated movies since then. Meanwhile, they seem to be all right with Gina Rodriguez as Velma, but how will they feel about who’s playing Fred and Daphne? Read More »

Believe it or not, that Dora the Explorer movie is arriving in theaters late this summer, and we’re about to get a glimpse of what we can expect when the first trailer drops this weekend during the Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon.
