Meet The Croods, The New Animated Stone-age Family

The Croods

The Croods

With Dream­Works Animation’s “Rise Of The Guardians” win­ning all kinds of awards– even before it is released– the next movie is the com­pany pipeline is start­ing to get some love. “The Croods” is on deck and ready to show it’s stuff. First look is now avail­able with the first trailer from the ani­mated film now available.

The story of a stone-age fam­ily make make you think back to Hanna-Barbera’s The Flint­stones, but other than shar­ing a time-period, there is no sim­i­lar­ity. The film takes us back to a pre­vi­ously undis­cov­ered era in the his­tory of our planet known as the Crooda­ceous, when nature was still a work-in-progress… full of never-before-seen crea­tures and landscapes.

The Croods stars Nico­las Cage as Grug, the patri­arch of the fam­ily. As he takes his fam­ily intro a dan­ger­ous new world, they meet Guy, voiced by Ryan Reynolds, who takes the fam­ily on a wilder ride than they ever thought pos­si­ble. Emma Stone  and Cather­ine Keener are also voices in this film.

The film is directed  and writ­ten by Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch) and Kirk De Micco (Space Chimps). The film is pro­duced by Kris­tine Bel­son and Jane Hartwell. The Croods releases to the­aters on March 22, 2013 in both stereo­scopic 3-D and 2-D.

Trailer To Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Tran­syl­va­nia

Sony Pic­tures Ani­ma­tion trou­bled pro­duc­tion of the 3D ani­mated Hotel Tran­syl­va­nia has some­thing to show for the nearly 10 years in pro­duc­tion it has seen. A first trailer. A first look at Adam Sandler’s Drac­ula as he parades around his styl­ish resort for over­worked monsters.

Hotel Tran­syl­va­nia is the story of Dracula’s lav­ish five-stake resort, where mon­sters and their fam­i­lies can live it up, free from med­dling from the human world. But here’s a little-known fact about Drac­ula: he is not only the Prince of Dark­ness; he is also a dad.

Cur­rently helmed by Gen­ndy Tar­takovsky of Samu­rai Jack fame, the film has been directed at var­i­ous times by Anthony Stac­chi, David Feiss and Jill Cul­ton. The film has also seen the com­ings and goings of Miley Cyrus as the voice of Mavis.

The film is pro­duced by Michelle Mur­docca, Amy Jupiter, Albie Hecht, and Robert Simonds for Sony Pic­tures Ani­ma­tion. The film will be released in 3D in selected the­aters on Sep­tem­ber 21, 2012.

Despicable Me 2 Trailer

Despicable Me 2

Despi­ca­ble Me 2

The sequel to Illuminations/Universal’s 201 hit Despi­ca­ble Me, so imag­i­na­tively titled Despi­ca­ble Me 2, has it’s first trailer out. The trailer gives noth­ing of the plot away, but if you love the lit­tle yel­low Min­ions, you will love the new trailer. Or if you love the Beach Boys, you will love it.

Despi­ca­ble Me 2 is expected to be released in July 2013. Not a whole lot on what the new plot will be, and the trailer is not much help in that regard. Surely Gru will be back, but that is about all we know at this point.
