Kubo and the Two Strings Making Of Featurette

We’ve already seen a couple of impressive trailers for the wonderful looking Kubo and the Two Strings. The movie is a stop-motion animated feature from LAIKA Entertainment, makers of Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls. The movie stars Art Parkinson, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara, George Takei, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and Brenda Vaccaro.

While trailers are exciting, it’s seeing what goes in to making these meticulous stop-motion films that’s most fascinating. Focus Features has released a new making of featurette for Kubo and the Two Strings called “Myth of Kubo.” You can check it out below.

Last week, the first teaser for The LEGO Batman Movie was released online to much fanfare. It was nearly impossible to contain the overwhelmingly positive reaction that the trailer has sparked. And as such, we are getting yet another teaser that will surely make you giddy. While the first one gave us a look at the Caped Crusader’s beatboxing and mic-dropping skills, along with a small tour of the LEGO Batcave, the newest one gives us a look at Wayne Manor in all its LEGO-built glory, and Alfred (voiced by Ralph Fiennes), who reminds Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) just how many times he has looked at a portrait of him and his parents in the many previous films.

Check it out below.

Movie Review: The Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!
eelyajekiM   |  

Hail, Caesar George Clooney

Hail, Caesar!
Directors: Joel and Ethan Coen
Writers: Joel and Ethan Coen
Cast: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Channing Tatum
Release Date: February 5, 2016

The Coen Brothers films are the reason why we go to the movies. And as such we are given an experience unlike any other. From the drama of a struggling musician in Inside Llewyn Davis to the issues of morality in No Country For Old Men to the dark comedy of Fargo, the Coens prove time and again that they are clearly ahead of the curve and are just the smartest men in the room.

Their latest project, Hail, Caesar! is like a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Which is great, if it actually took the time to be something other than just a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood. While the film touts an incredible all-star cast playing roles of all sizes, it is probably too smart for its own good.

The Movie God   |  

Kubo and the Two Strings

We’ve seen a few really gorgeous stop-motion films come out of LAIKA Entertainment, including Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls. With their latest effort, Kubo and the Two Strings, they most certainly appear to be continuing that trend after watching the new trailer for the movie, which mixes both awesome visuals and an epic instrumental cover of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

The movie stars Game of Thrones actor Art Parkinson (who plays Rickon on the HBO series—which is pretty cool as his TV big brother, Bran actor Isaac Hempstead Wright, starred in LAIKA’s The Boxtrolls) in the role of Kubo. Joining him on the cast is Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara, George Takei, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and Brenda Vaccaro.
