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.

Honest Trailer The Happening

You all knew it was going to “happen.” M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Visit is set to hit theaters this week. It’s a horror film with incredibly eerie trailers about grandkids staying with their strange and perhaps murderous grandparents. “Would you mind crawling in the oven to clean it,” says the Grandma in one scene from the preview. If this was not Shyamalan, it would be really freaky without second thoughts. Unfortunately, we live in a world where The Happening exists. The Happening was one of the greatest film experiences I ever had, but for all the wrong reasons. I was psyched for The Happening. The previews were great and scary, the people throwing themselves off buildings, the lawnmower, a girl stabbing herself in the neck! Instead, within minutes the packed house was hysterically laughing. When the suicides started, the laughing got LOUDER! By the midway point, it had become clear that this wasn’t just a bad movie. It was a spectacular trainwreck of awfulness, in the great tradition of Manos: Hands of Fate. People walking out cackled, “It might just be the worst movie… EVER!” So, for those nervous about The Visit, here is the Honest Trailer for one of the absolute suck-bombs of all time, M. Night Shyamalan’s 2008 debacle, The Happening.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

New Girl Season 4 Cast

New Girl
Season 4 Episode 14: “Swuit”
Starring Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, Damon Wayans Jr., and Hannah Simone
FOX
Air Date: Tuesday, February 3, 2015, 9pm

The silliness continues from last week when Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Nick (Jake Johnson) vow to go into business together. However, they both have to be the boss, which results in the requisite laughter (not for them). The masterpiece that results in this partnership is the “Swuit” — a suit made out of a sweatsuit. Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is their cheerleader, therapist, and ultimately, their model. CeCe (Hannah Simone) has no money for college, so Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) decide to invest in her life and take it just a bit too far.

New GirlNew Girl
Series Premiere
Starring Zooey Deschanel, Jake M. Johnson, Max Greenfield, Damon Wayans Jr.
Written by Elizabeth Meriwether
Fox
Air date: Tuesday, September 20, 2011 9/8c

New Girl, the new sitcom from Fox, is the best new show of the TV season. Okay, that is a pretty bold statement. I have not seen any other show from the new Fall lineup, but if the preview that I saw of the pilot episode is an indicator of how the series will play out, then those other new shows will have to have to bring their A game to the table.

Right about now, I am sure you are wondering why this show is so great. Is the premise really that original? Well, no. The premise is pretty much a staple of in the landscape of TV sitcoms. A recently single girl, Jess (Zooey Deschanel), moves into an apartment with a group of guys she has nothing in common with.

Movie Review: Your Highness

Your Highness
Directed by David Gordon Green
Staring Danny McBride, James Franco, Natalie Portman
Rated R
Universal Pictures
Release date: April 8, 2011

Your Highness is the new movie from the people that brought you Pineapple Express, a movie that mixed stoner comedy with an ’80s action movie with some success. Your Highness looks to do take a stoner comedy and mix it with a Lord of the Rings-style fantasy. I was getting my hopes up before seeing Your Highness, mostly because I like Danny McBride and because I liked what I saw in the commercials. Unfortunately, it didn’t exactly live up to my expectations, which doesn’t make it a bad movie, it just means it left me a little disappointed, and I think a lot of people will feel the same way.

Your Highness is the story of two brothers, Fabious (James Franco) and Thadeous (Danny McBride). Fabious is the successful brother and future king of the land. Thadeous is a screw-up who doesn’t want to do anything except spend his nights with wenches and weed. When Fabious’ fiancée Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel) is kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the two brothers must go on a quest to rescue her. They are joined by Thadeous’ squire, Courtney (Rasmus Hardiker), and are later joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman), another adventurer with a grudge against Leezar. Their quest is filled with monsters, betrayal, and a little bit of drug use, before their final confrontation with the wizard.

Winnie the Pooh is a character that means a lot to a great deal of people, who all grew up with the lovable simpleton of a stuffed bear.

Now nostalgia is preparing to overtake you once again, as Walt Disney has a brand new movie simply titled Winnie the Pooh, which will be the first original big-screen Pooh movie in over 35 years. The movie will be presented in classic Disney hand-drawn style, and very little has changed in the Hundred Acre Wood.

The movie now has an official release date, set to hit theaters on July 15, 2011, and a lot of very cool tidbits of information in regard to the movie have also been released, which you can check out by clicking on over to the other side. While there, you can also watch the highly nostalgic trailer if you’ve yet to see it!

Blu-ray Review: Elf: The Ultimate Collection

Elf
Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray
Directed by Jon Favreau
Starring Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, Peter Dinklage
Warner Bros Home Entertainment
Release date: October 26, 2010

Ask any Will Ferrell fan about his movies, and they most definitely will be able to quote lines from it, almost verbatim. Some like his wacky turn as news reporter/lothario Ron Burgundy in Anchorman. Other prefers him as Ricky Bobby in Talladega Nights. For me, my favorite movie from the Ferrell library is Elf, his first major movie and box office success. So, with the holidays right around the corner, it is no surprise that the movie would be re-released on Blu-ray as an Ultimate Collector’s Edition.

Elf stars Will Ferrell as Buddy, a human who when he was just a baby, hopped into Santa’s sleigh and was whisked to the North Pole. Because he was an orphan, an old wise elf (Bob Newhart) decides to raise him as his own. Fast forward 30 years, when Buddy discovers that not only is he not an elf, but his real human father is in New York City. Hoping to reconnect with the father he never knew he had, Buddy embarks on a quest to the Big Apple one special Christmas season.

Red Band Trailer For Danny McBride & James Franco Adult Fantasy ‘Your Highness’

The Movie God   |  @   |  
space

Ladies and gentlemen, the vulgar and hilarious adult-aimed fantasy movie you’ve all been (probably) waiting for has arrived.

The movie is called Your Highness, and it’s a fantasy with all the swords and magic and mythical creatures you would expect. What you might not so much expect is that the movie is directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Eastbound & Down), and mixes a whole lot of comedy, swearing, sex, and drug use into the fantasy pot.

To show off a bit of the naughty elements of the movie, a new red band trailer has been released for our enjoyment. And yes, the swearing does feel a little awkward given the setting of the movie. That said, Your Higness looks like it could be a lot of fun and a crazy new and unique spin on the fantasy genre.

As always, be sure to head on over to the other side to read a synopsis and watch the new red band trailer. And obviously, this trailer is NSFW and you should approach with caution!

Blu-ray Review: (500) Days of Summer

(500) Days of Summer Blu-ray DVD(500) Days of Summer
Blu-ray Edition
Directed by Marc Webb
Starring Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Fox Home Entertainment
Release Date: December 22, 2009

The omniscient narrator declares that what we are watching is not a love story, but a story about love. An odd little twist that brings a kind of assurance and authenticity to (500) Days Summer. Once this statement is solidified early on in the film it makes us view the movie in a slightly different way and rightfully so. An original narrative technique is what the film has going for it. It disregards a linear story line but never capitalizes on the true potential the script really has. Many films use discombobulated narratives that are fragmented and dislocated to resemble the emotions its characters are feeling. The split screens and split narratives are too much imbued within stylistic ploys, making each scene that carries these fashionable devices incompetent and never availing.

Screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, along with the innovative mind of director Marc Webb, may have dislocate the narrative a tad too much and haven’t peered thoroughly enough into the emotional angst of Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a greeting card writer, who is in love with Summer (Zooey Deschanel), his coworker. This is Tom’s story he tells to his two friends and little sister, in a way that isn’t chronological, his mishaps and successes he has experienced with Summer throughout the 500 days he believed he loved her.
