Hotel Transylvania 2 Trailer


Count Dracula seems to have really changed his ways, embracing humans and allowing them to stay at his monster-filled Hotel Transylvania after taking a shine to his daughter Mavis' new human boyfriend Johnny. Now the pair have a child together named Dennis, and despite having vampire in his blood, he doesn't seem to possess any monster ability of any kind. When Mavis and Johnny take a break to visit the latter's parents, she asks her dad to babysit her son - but that probably wasn't the best idea. In charge of young Dennis, Dracula enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to train him up to be a real monster, and take him on a trip of their own. But when Mavis finds out what they're up to, she's less than happy and makes to come home. But she's not the only one; Dracula's father Vlad is making a surprise visit, and he's not going to be happy that the hotel is filled with humans.

Hotel Transylvania 2 - Teaser Trailer


Following on from the adventures in the Hotel Transylvania, in which Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) was forced to hide a human from the clients of his "monsters only" hotel, things have gotten even stranger. Jonathan (Andy Samberg), the human traveller, and Mavis (Selena Gomez), Dracula's daughter, have fallen in love and had a baby. This new, half human half vampire baby, is accepted by the monsters inhabiting the hotel. But Dracula is not as impressed as he could be: he wants his grandson to take on the ways of a vampire like he did, and is willing to do whatever it takes to help him become a terrifying monster.

Whoopi Goldberg Mel Brooks

They shot to fame and gained a momentous audience following in 1994 as a rag-tag group of troublesome kids in the American comedy Little Rascals. The little people that gave us so much joy in the film adaptation of Hal Roach’s Our Gang may have grown up but they haven’t stopped entertaining as the stars of the show got together to recreate the movie’s poster 20 years later.

Ty Burrell Ariel Winter Stanley Tucci Mel Brooks

It’s not easy being the world's smartest and most brilliant dog. In fact, it’s pretty darn difficult. Mr. Peabody is taking his endless adventure pallet onto the big screen, with a time-travelling yarn through ancient Greece and Egypt.

Mr PeabodyMr Peabody urged Sherman not to use the WABAC

Ol’ Peabody would probably just be sitting around playing scrabble with young Sherman now, if the scamp didn’t have designs on impressing the equally yong but more mischievous Penny Peabody.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman - Teaser Trailer


Mr. Peabody is doubtlessly the most intelligent and most accomplished dog on the planet, and undeniably outshines the human race too. However, despite his achievements, he is determined to maintain a normal life for his adopted human son Sherman by inviting round Penny a classmate of his with whom he wants Sherman to be friends. She has other ideas, however, and only shows interest when Sherman agrees to show her Mr. Peabody's WABAC - a time machine in which they travel into the past despite being expressly forbidden. When Peabody finds out, he realises that their actions have ripped a hole in the space-time continuum and they are forced to return to the past to re-write history and save the universe. Along the way they meet some of the biggest legends of history, including Leonardo Da Vinci and Sigmund Freud, who help them on their quest.

'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' is a brilliantly funny animated movie based on the characters from the 'The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show' in the sixties in the 'Peabody's Improbable History' segments. It has been directed by Rob Minkoff ('The Lion King', 'Stuart Little', 'The Haunted Mansion') and written by Ted Key ('Hazel', 'The Million Dollar Duck', 'Gus') and Craig Wright ('Dirty Sexy Money', 'Underemployed'). 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' is set for release in the UK on February 7th 2014.

#Funny: Twitter Launches Comedy Festival Featuring Mel Brooks


Mel Brooks Rob Reiner Judd Apatow

Twitter is spreading its wings into the world of comedy and launching its own comedy festival played out in just 140 characters and six-second videos. Twitter is teaming up with Comedy Central for the 'ComedyFest' event, set to debut on April 29, 2013. Comedians will tweet jokes and post videos with the recently launched video app Vine over five days.

The launch of the festival is expected to be officially announced later on Monday (April 22, 2013), with big names such as Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Amy Schumer and director Paul Feig all thought to be taking part. Twitter introduced Vine in January - a video sharing service that lets users post six-second clips that matches the brevity of the social network's word limit.

On the Tuesday of the festival, comedian Steve Agee will host a 'Vine Dining' party, telling stories in six-second videos, while the cast of satirical political comedy 'Veep' will share 'Vines' from the set, as will the cast of ABC's hit show 'Scandal'.

Robin Hood: Men In Tights Review


Good
Mediocre parody movies are Newton's second law as applied to cinema. For every hit over-the-top drama that paints characters by numbers there's at least one end to end parody that makes the cookie cutters look like Central Park caricatures.

So for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, we have Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Kevin Costner's Hood is aped by Cary Elwes, Morgan Freeman's Azeem has turned in Dave Chappelle's Ahchoo. And Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio's ice queen Maid Marion is replaced with Amy Yasbeck's mild, cute, and chaste dolt.

Robots Review


Extraordinary
The 1995 release of Pixar's Toy Story forever altered the world of animated cinema. In an instant, decades of Disney-dominated traditional cartoons vanished in a pixilated puff of fairy dust and a new era of almost entirely computer-generated animation began. The ensuing wave of digital films has met with such astonishing box-office success that even such forgettable romps as Chris Wedge's Ice Age have managed to top the earnings charts in their opening weeks.

But things are changing in the animation scene. The freshness of CG has worn away, and audiences are no longer wowed by flashy technology alone. Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles has raised the bar on both animation excellence and story-telling savvy to a level that will be hard to top in coming years. If such early hits as Toy Story or Antz premiered today, it's unlikely they would wow the crowds nearly as much as they did on their initial releases. It's a tough time to be an animated film.
