DreamWorks Animation is looking for their next hit after releasing the final installment in the ‘How to Train Your Dragon‘ film franchise earlier this year.
They’re hoping ‘Abominable‘ is that hit. The first trailer for the film was released today. If you’ve been to the movie theater lately, you may have already seen this trailer as it’s been playing inside theaters for a month now.
This movie’s story involves a young girl from Shanghai who befriends a yeti and embarks on an adventure to get him home to the mountains. Featuring the voices of Chloe Bennet, Albert Tsai, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, plus Tenzing Norgay Trainor.
This movie was written and directed by Jill Culton, the animator behind the 2006 film Open Season.
Abominable is set to hit theaters September 27, 2019. Check out the trailer below…
First of all, what the heck is The Boss Baby? There hasn’t been a lot of information about it, so let’s get you updated. The 3D computer-animated comedy is loosely based on a picture book of the same name, which was illustrated and written by Marla Frazee.
And according to wiki, the plot centers on a “fast-talking, briefcase-carrying” infant called Baby Boss. Alec Baldwin voices the character, who accidentally gets tangled up in a scheme that threatens to “destabilize the balance of love in the world.”
He and his 7-year-old brother, Tim, must work together to save their family and the rest of the world. Jimmy Kimmel and Lisa Kudrow will voice their parents and Patton Oswalt serves as a grown-up version of Tim who will guide us through the film.
Tom McGrath is the director. His directing credits include the Madagascar films and Megamind, so it’s safe to say this movie is in good hands.
DreamWorks has been on a roll lately with How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Kung Fu Panda 3. Their next project, Trolls, will come out next month. The Boss Baby will be released March 31, 2017.
It’s been stuck in the early stages of development for a long time now, but you are about to see the ‘Ghost in the Shell’ train leave the station. The live-action, DreamWorks’ adaptation of the popular anime now has huge name attached to it.
According to multiple reports, Scarlett Johansson has verbally agreed to a deal. Sources say she received a $10 million offer. A few months ago, there was a report floating around claiming Johansson had been offered the job, but she wasn’t ready to commit at the time. It now appears she is ready to accept the big offer.
Apparently, Margot Robbie was the first actress considered for the role; however, all eyes locked on Scarlett after Robbie reached a deal to play Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad.
Rupert Sanders will direct the film. Steven Paul and Avi Arad have joined the project as producers. Sources have told Variety that Paramount does have the option to join as co-producer and financier. A decision is expected to made in a few weeks.
If the train stays on track, you can expect to see the film in theaters by 2016. And while reaching a deal with someone as popular as Scarlett Johansson guarantees success at the box office, it’s not making Ghost fans very happy. Most people are calling the move predictable and safe.
