The first trailer for the upcoming Cartoon Saloon film, The Breadwinner, has been released:

Based on the book of the same name, the film focuses on a girl who must dress and work as a boy to provide for her family when her father gets unjustly arrested in the Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. I love the story and the animation style, so I’m really looking forward to this one!

‘The Emoji Movie’ Theatrical Trailer Released!

9 Comments

If you’re like most people, when you heard that Sony Animation was making a film entitled, The Emoji Movie, you kinda groaned. And the teaser trailer didn’t help matters much either. But now, we’ve gotten the first theatrical trailer for the film:

I’ll be honest, it doesn’t seem as horrible as I thought it would be. But, it still seems groan-worthy! It feels like a mixture of Inside Out and Wreck-It Ralph, but not in a good way. I dunno, how do you all feel about this film?

Comedian Don Rickles Dies at 90!

In news that I’m personally upset over, the comedian/actor, Don Rickles, has passed away at the age of 90! Mr. Rickles (1926-2017) was famously known as an “insult comic”, although he personally didn’t agree with that labeling of his work. He would have fun with everyone and get people to laugh at themselves regardless of cultures, colors, etc. Everybody loved him as his “insults” were never mean-spirited, but always in good fun!

Some movies that he appeared in include Casino, Kelly’s Heroes, The Rat Race, and Run Silent Run Deep. He also did a few animated roles such as voicing the dragon, Cornwall, in Quest for Camelot,

He’s the one on the right.

and his iconic role as Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story films.

I will greatly miss this man as I’m sure most others will too!

‘Ferdinand’ Trailer Debuts!

14 Comments

The first trailer for Blue Sky Studios’ upcoming animated film, Ferdinand, has debuted.

Based on a book by Munro Leaf, Ferdinand is about a bull who would rather spend time sniffing flowers than fighting in a bullring. I’m honestly not pleased with what we’ve seen so far though. I feel the timelessness of the book is lost in this upcoming film. Not to mention: John Cena is the voice of Ferdinand? Really?

It’s sad that I’m more looking forward to the Captain Underpants movie than this film. Ferdinand is set to hit cinemas on December 15, 2017. What do you think of this trailer? Are you interested in the movie?

‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie’ Trailer Debuts!

9 Comments

We have finally gotten a trailer for Dreamworks Animation’s upcoming film, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

The film honestly doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would be. Then again, 2017 is such a weak year for animation that it doesn’t take much to make me optimistic. I quite enjoy the animation style of this film, but I do feel the story will be quite predictable. I also feel that Kevin Hart is quite mismatched for his character as it just feels odd to hear his voice come out of that character.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie features the voices of Ed Helms, Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, and Nick Kroll. It will hit theaters on June 2, 2017. Do you plan to see it?
