#TheLittlePrince Trailer

The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince) is a 2015 French 3D stop motion and computer-animated family drama fantasy film directed by Mark Osborne. Irena Brignull wrote the script based on the 1943 novel of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. As the first animated feature film adaptation of The Little Prince, the film uses stop motion animation for the novel's story and computer animation for an additional frame narrative. The film stars the voices of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Riley Osborne, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Benicio del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Bud Cort, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks and Mackenzie Foy.



This movie is not a straight adaptation of Saint-Exupéry's novel. Rather, elements from the novel are woven into an original narrative about a young girl who is dealing with her pushy Mother who wants her to grow up too fast. It had its world premiere on 22 May 2015 at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in an out-of-competition screening, followed by a wide theatrical release in France on 29 July 2015 by Paramount Pictures. The film has earned $67.6 million on a $77.5 million budget.

Could Tom Cruise Star In The Mummy Reboot

By: John Meneghetti
According to Variety Tom Cruise is in talks to star in Universal’s “The Mummy” reboot, helping to launch Universal’s new era of monster films, sources tell Variety.

The studio tapped Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan last summer to help develop a universe for Universal where its classic monster movie library is front and center. Kurtzman is also on board to direct and will produce alongside Morgan as well as Sean Daniel. Universal is not commenting on casting speculation regarding the project.

Jon Spaihts is penning the script. Plot details are vague other than it will be set in present day, unlike the previous three installments starring Brendan Fraser.

Cruise isn’t expected to produce, but he will play a major part in development. Characters from the monster universe films are expected to crop up in each other’s installments before culminating in an “Avengers”-style tie-in film.

Universal’s executive VP of production Jon Mone and director of development Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for the studio.

Cruise is currently filming “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.” Cruise was eyeing a reunion with Doug Liman on the space adventure “Luna Park,” but with Liman directing “Gambit” in the spring, Cruise’s schedule had an opening before he jumped into prep for “Mission: Impossible 6,” which shoots next August.

Movie Review: Legend

Tom Hardy doubles up, but film barely hits a single.

Review by Brandon Wolfe

Tom Hardy has become one of our most chameleonic actors. While many, if not most, movie stars of his stature cling to a dependable screen persona, Hardy has made himself tricky to pin down. The dandyish operative in Inception, the hulking, indelibly voiced Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, the soft-hearted lug in The Drop and the feral road warrior in Mad Max: Fury Road are each wholly distinct from one another. Hardy’s ability to immerse himself into his roles is so effective that the star himself is largely hiding in plain sight, vanishing without a trace into whichever character he embodies.

That transformative skill has never served Hardy better than it does in Legend, where he is forced to conjure up two entirely divergent characters who look just like him. Hardy plays the Kray twins, Reggie and Ronald, who essentially ran the organized crime circuit of London’s East End throughout the 1960s. The dapper thug Reggie is the more together of the two, quick to violence but capable of rational thought. Ronald, on the other hand, is a legally insane paranoid schizophrenic whose ability to keep it together is always tenuous and dependent upon whether or not he remembered to take his pills that day. At the start of the film, the brothers have already carved out their niche in London’s underworld and are kept under constant surveillance by a dogged Scotland Yard detective (Christopher Eccelston). Reggie is forced to muscle a psychiatrist in order to keep the unhinged Ronald from being committed and, through a combination of brute strength and luck, the two outlast the competition to ascend to the top of the criminal peak.


Reggie finds himself falling in love with Frances Shea (Emily Browning), the young sister of an underling, and begins to dabble in the nightclub business. Eventually he is arrested and jailed for a short term, leaving Ronald temporarily operating as the brains of the operation, to disastrous results. Upon his release, Reggie sees the mess Ronald has made of things and a rift begins to form. Ronald focuses much of his paranoia, inexplicably, upon Leslie Payne (David Thewlis), the Krays’ business manager, who is highly intelligent and dependable, yet whom Ronald is convinced is a turncoat. After Ronald allows his obsessiveness to result in unnecessary bloodshed, the end of the Krays’ empire begins to appear on the horizon.

Legend is an exceedingly pedestrian crime drama. Much like this year’s Black Mass, it’s rote, tedious and far too familiar, elevated only by an impressive lead performance (or, in this case, performances). There is absolutely nothing here that feels fresh. The outbursts of violence, the kickin’ ‘60s soundtrack, the “let me lay it all out for you” narration (which results in an obnoxious cheat, which the movie even outright cops to) are all so achingly typical for the genre. Even the look of the film, which takes places almost entirely in dingy nightclubs and against the drab, brick-lined backdrop of East End streets, isn’t terribly impressive. These are the oft-reheated leftovers of Goodfellas served to us under the deceitful guise of a fresh-cooked meal.


But Hardy hardly lets the mediocrity around him hold him back. He makes the Krays feel like two separate entities, each with his own idiosyncratic personality and set of tics. Reggie is a hard lad, quick-tempered and disposed to frightening brutality, yet is also capable of being rational, charming and even affectionate. The bonds he has with both Ronald and Frances are deeply felt, even when they eventually curdle. But it’s as Ronald that Hardy really makes an impression. Peering from behind an unflattering pair of eyeglasses and speaking with a mush-mouthed garble of a voice, Ronald is Reggie’s polar opposite, as awkward as his brother is debonair. Not only is it a compellingly oddball performance, but it’s also a genuinely funny one, as Ronald is prone to strange non-sequiturs and intensely gawky facial expressions (his look of mouth-agape terror during a police line-up is hilarious). The film doesn’t strive for technological virtuosity in having Hardy interact with himself; generally the Krays are only shown standing next to each other conversing, and in more complicated shots, such as a protracted fight sequence between the brothers, usually only one Hardy face is visible. Legend doesn’t care about wowing us with magic tricks so much as giving Hardy all the space he needs to wow us with his dexterity.

It would have been appreciated, however, if Legend cared about a few more things. Browning is stuck with a rather thankless role of gangster’s moll turned pill-popping wife, another musty crime-movie cliché trotted out mechanically. Faring even worse is Eccleston, whom the film sets up as the gung-ho pursuer of the Krays only to mostly forget about him. There is little of the film that carves out a space in the memory beyond Hardy’s contributions. An early sequence where the brothers violently confront their rivals at a bar is a lot of fun, but sets the film up for a playful, early Guy Ritchie vibe that isn’t revisited subsequently after the film deigns to stand as yard-sale Scorsese. Even the breadth and impact of the Krays’ reign feels undercooked. We never really get a sense of the scope of their influence. Despite the swagger intrinsic to the title, Legend is no such thing.

New #Zootopia Trailer

The new trailer for Disney’s Zootopia has arrived.


The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.



Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.

Movie Review: 'Creed'

Creed re-invigorates the Rocky story as much as it celebrates the rise of another familiar Balboa name.

Review by Matt Cummings

For all the misses behind the recent slew of boxing genre films, it’s clear that audiences desire its inclusion with comic book and other action films. And while Creed celebrates the return of the beloved Rocky name, it also delivers a fairly powerful human story.

Adonis Johnson (Alex Hendersonm) is a troubled orphan whose stay in the LA juvenile detention center is relieved when an unexpected visit from Mary Anne Creed (Phylicia Rashad) reveals that he is the illegitimate son of the late Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). Fast-forward 20 years, and Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) has decided that his plush life and recent promotion aren’t enough, and decides to box illegally in Tijuana. Against the wishes of his mother, Andonis leaves LA for Philadelphia, in the hopes that none other than Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) will agree to train him. After the two eventually join forces, their newly-minted friendship will yield hard-fought triumph, but not before devastating news arrives that not even The Italian Stallion can withstand.

Creed is as much about the reinvigoration of Stallone as it is about bringing back the brand. It’s clearly his best performance in years, adding a likable and stirring portrayal into what would have been just another 2015 boxing film (no offense to Southpaw). The best part of Creed lies in Rocky knowing he can no longer fight, but that he can affect the path of Adonis. Stallone gives great subtly to his performance as man who’s truly alone, having outlived Adrian and even his buddy Paulie. It’s not something he’s proud of, but when Creed enters the picture, he sees the last phase of his life come together, even if he won’t admit it to his young protégée. But the film is more than two boxers collaborating to win a big fight, and when the turn comes Stallone moves the movie into a much deeper story than perhaps we were expecting.

Tessa Thompson delivers a magnetic performance as Creed’s musician girlfriend who’s slowly losing her hearing. She offers a soothing calm to Creed’s almost-badger-like personality, even though their initial meetings aren’t exactly love at first sight. Director/Writer Ryan Coogler’s effort is impressive, both in its visual construction (a series of great freeze shots showing off the records of Creed’s opponents) and the way he pushes his cast to deliver top-flight performances. If there’s any criticism of his efforts it’s the runtime: at a leisurely 132 minutes, we spend too much time setting up the training and engaging in small talk that robs it of its momentum in parts. What is effective are the one-shot sequences of an early fight, as well as Rocky and Creed walking from the training room to their showdown with 'Pretty' Ricky Conlan (Tony Bellew). They’re nice and I wouldn’t trade it for another sequence, but with smaller scenes also giving additional long looks, it does slow the film down.

But just like the ebb and flow of a bout, Coogler regains his form by sticking to the character drama, focusing on those burgeoning relationships and fears that Balboa and XX have for Creed’s mental wellbeing. Coogler also taps in to his obvious affection for Philadelphia with several memorable location shots featured in the original Rocky. He also employs a great score, courtesy of Composer Ludwig Goranson, who effectively merges the orchestrated melodies of the 1970’s with modern electronic soundscapes. It’s like the two time periods had the coolest retro baby possible, adding to the chic urban element of motorcycles, crowded clubs, and mass transit high above old-school boxing gyms.

While it’s a little too long, Creed celebrates the best parts of the Rocky franchise. Stallone and Jordan make a solid combo, but its story of moving out of someone else’s shadow is a bit formulaic and trots on safe territory instead of expanding it. Still, it’s a definite majority win-by-decision rather than a Knock Out for Coogler’s first studio production.
