Views A History of DreamWorks Animation: Part One – Ogres Are Like Onions!

Take a look back at the history of DreamWorks Animation with the first of a four-part series exploring its early years as a division in a new Hollywood studio.

Views Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War is fun, exciting, and a compelling drama, making it arguably one of best superhero films to date.

Views Ratchet & Clank

Video game movies may be the next big thing in Hollywood, but Ratchet & Clank is an inauspicious start. This will be a trend that will soon run out of lives if the studios don’t figure out a winning strategy.

Views Robert Kondo & Dice Tsutsumi talk about “rising” Moom

The creators of The Dam Keeper found new challenges in adapting a Japanese book for their latest project.

Views The Loud House

The Loud House is a surprisingly nice little series that looks good. But the premise of a boy with ten sisters could end up being a burden if not tinkered with carefully.

Views Around the world with Mila: Producer Andrea Emmes

Our exclusive series, detailing the unique production of a very special film, begins with interviewing its producer.

Views The Jungle Book

It may be a remake of the animated classic, but this live-action version of The Jungle Book is a wonderful film that will leave audiences both young and old in awe of the visual feast it presents.

Views X-Men ’92 Vol. 0: Warzones!

X-Men ’92 is a faithful continuation of the Fox animated series. But its chaotic narrative will leave all readers quite bewildered.

An exclusive recap of WonderCon’s 30th anniversary event, including coverage of Ratchet and Clank, Voltron: Legendary Defender, and the world premiere of The Giant’s Dream.

Views Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Holy letdown! The cast is great and the action is cool, but Dawn of Justice is bat-frustrating and not quite super enough.

Views Only Yesterday

After 25 years, the beautiful and dramatic Only Yesterday finally gets a well-deserved English dub and North American release.

Views Open Season: Scared Silly

Despite some laughs, Open Season: Scared Silly lacks the oddball charm–and heart–that made the original so much fun.

Views Into The Forest Of Enchantement – A Disney Musical Adventure at Disneyland Paris

Our exclusive interview with the creatives behind Disneyland Paris’ new show sheds light on creating entertainment for the parks!

Views Zootopia

Zootopia earns a savage review as it spends too much time trying (and failing) to get its message right at the expense of making an enjoyable story.

Views The Good Dinosaur

Pixar’s latest makes a quick transfer to home video, where its simple pleasures will be enjoyed by a younger than usual audience for the Studio’s films, even if parents may wonder why the originality is extinct.

Views Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs: Walt Disney Signature Collection

The Angry Birds Movie opens


Columbia/ImageWorks' The Angry Birds Movie opens today in 3,932 theatres, according to Box Office Mojo. The film is splitting the critics, earning a 45% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Their consensus: "The Angry Birds Movie is substantially more entertaining than any film adapted from an app has any right to be -- which may or may not be much of an endorsement". BOM predicts it will win the weekend, beat studio estimates, and finish on top of Captain America with $43.69 million. Box Office Prophets has a different take, projecting that Angry Birds will finish in second place with $40.1 million, still ahead of Captain America but behind Neighbors 2.
