DreamWorks Trolls title

I’ll admit that I had my doubts about DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls being an entertaining film considering that it was based on the ’80s toys that many of us have long forgotten about. But when that first gleeful trailer popped up, it came to many viewers as a pleasant surprise. Then they showed even more footage at the San Diego Comic-Con, and soon enough, the film caught my attention.

Now a new trailer has been released featuring the film’s lead voice stars, Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick, talking about the film and how music and animation go hand in hand. Check out the latest trailer for Trolls below.

Trolls trailer

20th Century Fox has released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming animated comedy Trolls, featuring the voices of Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick. If you are a child of the ’90s, then you will more than likely recognize these colorful characters, but the film manages to add a brand new twist by bringing a musical element into the mix.

Timberlake and Kendrick are not the only singing talents. They will be joined by Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, and Gwen Stefani. So you know you are in for a few cover songs and maybe some new ones too. Check out the full trailer below.

Despicable Me 2 Header

The one thing that Despicable Me 2 has going for it, aside from Agnes, that one kid known for screeching “it’s so fluffy,” are those tiny yellow minions that are constantly causing mayhem and by the side of Gru (voiced by Steve Carell).

The first trailer wasn’t too heavy on the details, which is fine by all means since it was a teaser trailer, as was the second trailer. Now a new more plot centric trailer has revealed a lot of detail about the story that will force Gru to fight for the good side.

Hit the jump to see the latest trailer for Despicable Me 2.

Despicable Me 2

A lot of what makes Despicable Me so adorable are those lovable mischievous yellow minions that go around assisting Gru (Steve Carell). The first trailer for Despicable Me 2 featured only three minions singing their off-key rendition of “Barbara Ann.” But it didn’t tell us anything about the sequel at all.

Now a new holiday-appropriate trailer has hit the web and it seems to tell us that the sequel will be focused on them. Check it out after the jump.

Movie Review: Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D

Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D PosterKaty Perry: Part of Me 3D
Directed by Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz
Starring Katy Perry, Glen Ballard, Shannon Woodward, Russell Brand, Adele, Rihanna, Lady Gaga
MTV Films | Paramount Pictures
Rated PG | 97 Minutes
Release Date: July 5, 2012

All right, here’s the thing – I know I’m not supposed to like Katy Perry. I’m not supposed to like Lady GaGa either, but I do. Let me put this in more simplistic, geek-relative terms: Katy Perry is to The Avengers as Lady GaGa is to The Dark Knight – both pop stars are awesome for completely different reasons.

GaGa’s got her Little Monsters and Perry’s got her Katy Kats, and yes – it’s creepy for a 27-year-old bearded straight man to consider himself part of either of those fan communities – but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the artistry and pageantry of pop music. Sometimes, I just want a little good old fashioned frivolity, and that’s the escape Perry’s music provides.

I’m not ashamed to admit it – I really like Katy Perry. I dig her whole vibe, from the silly, catchy-as-hell pop songs to her blue hair and “Sexy Willy Wonka” fashion sense. Say what you will about America’s candy-coated pop starlet, but you can’t deny her success. Her 2010 album Teenage Dream spawned five number one singles — “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).”

Rock of Ages Theatrical PosterRock of Ages
Directed by Adam Shankman
Starring Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Åkerman, Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: June 15, 2012

Ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time, and it don’t get better than this.” – Poison

Disclaimer: I am a 27-year-old man with an affinity for musical theatre and ’80s glam rock. I am not ashamed to admit I have shed a tear or two during Glee or the occasional off-Broadway production of Rent. Musicals aren’t for everyone, but for all the Drama Nerds, Band Geeks, and Glee Kids out there, this one’s for you.

From director Adam Shankman (Hairspray) comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages. The year is 1987. Movies like Fatal Attraction, Moonstruck, and Beverly Hills Cop II blow up the box office while Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, and Bon Jovi play to sold-out stadiums across the country. In this alternate reality of 1987, however, rock god Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) is responsible for every ’80’s anthem and power ballad – an amalgam of every legendary front man in rock’n’roll history.

Rock of Ages features Julianne Hough (Footloose, Burlesque) as Sherrie Christian, a small-town girl who leaves Tulsa, Oklahoma to follow her Hollywood dreams. There she meets rock’n’roller Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), a bartender at The Bourbon Room, one of Sunset Strip’s hottest concert venues.

Rock of Ages

Warner Bros. has released a second full-length trailer for their upcoming musical film, Rock Of Ages, based on the Broadway show.

Watch the trailer here below.

In Rock Of Ages, a “small town girl” named Sherrie (Julianne Hough) meets a city boy named Drew (Diego Boneta) on the Sunset Strip where both of them are pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Sherri works as a waitress at the The Bourbon Room, while Drew work there as a busboy, though both are hoping for their “big break.” Alec Baldwin stars as Dennis Dupree, the owner of The Bourbon Room, with Russell Brand as the manager of the Hollywood club (he also narrates the story). Catherine Zeta-Jones plays the mayor’s wife, who wants to shut down the club because it promotes a sex, drugs, and rock n roll lifestyle. Tom Cruise is a hair metal rock star named Stacee Jaxx and in the trailer we get a glimpse of his onstage persona taking on Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive.”

Arthur Blu-rayArthur
Blu-ray | DVD | On Demand
Directed by Jason Winer
Starring Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Greta Gerwig, Jennifer Garner, Geraldine James, Luis Guzmán
Warner Bros. Home Video
Release Date: July 15, 2011

Arthur, stars Russell Brand as the title character who’s a rich, alcoholic, heir to a business empire. Through his life, Arthur has squandered his fortune on space suits, a magnetic floating bed, telephone booth aquariums, movie memorabilia, specifically movie cars, and lots and lots of alcohol. After Arthur gets arrested for wrecking the Batmobile from Batman and Robin, Arthur’s mother (Geraldine James), the keeper of the family fortune, gives him an ultimatum: either straighten up and get his life together by marrying Susan Johnson (Jennifer Garner), or lose his inheritance. The only problem, Arthur has fallen in love Naomi (Greta Gerwig), a simple woman from Queens. Will Arthur give up everything for the woman he loves? Or will he sacrifice the one he loves for the almighty dollar? You can only find out by watching the movie.

Or by thinking logically if you’ve seen any movie that has this plot, which I’m sure you have since 80 percent of movies in existence all have this premise, according to Hunter Camp’s False Movie Facts. And that’s the main problem with the film.
