    Broderick had already been working on stage for a decade and a half by the time he did Lion King, and only a year later starred in the revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. So no, singing wasn't at all a new thing for him by that point.

    As the most expensive indie film of all time, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still pretty bad.

    The trailer for the first ever Captain Underpants movie:



    As somebody who devoured the books when I was younger, this looks pretty faithful. George and Harald's personalities are spot-on, though I always imagined Mr Krupp with a gruffer voice (think Bryan Doyle Murray). But Ed Helms sounds like he's doing a fine job. I also like how the animation has an almost Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs look to it. The DreamWorks animators seem to be taking notes from their pals at Sony Animation on how to do cartoony animation. Consider me excited.

    Alright, alright, I'm impressed. I agree that Mr. Krupp should have had a more gruffer voice (I had Mr. Lawrence in mind), but I still think George and Harold should have been voiced by actual kids for a more authentic feel.

    And it looks like they're taking the inspired approach here and just blending in the best elements from most of the books (The Turbo-Toilet is more machine than alien, and Professor Poopypants was observing some toxic material, which I assume is gonna be the source of CU's powers later on).

    I dunno, I hope this turns out good, maybe Dreamworks/Fox can make one last franchise together before the big jump to Universal.

    Wow, just a few weeks after the Moana Honest Trailer suggested Moana, Elsa, Merida, Rapunzel, and Pocahontas become "Disney Princess Avengers".

    Wasn't there a similar crossover planned awhile back that got to the concept stage before being cancelled?

    Some of the big action moments (especially the collapsing ferris wheel) make me little concerned. Death Note has some action moments, but at its core it is a thriller about two brilliant minds having the battle of intellect. This is why I think that Netflix mini-series would have been better route than a movie, since then you would have more time to build the suspense.

    Well, if nothing else, Dafoe seems to be killing it as Ryuk.

    The point is it could still be a good movie regardless of its larger context?

    Duh. Just that given the Sony deal, shouldn't that include every character?

    Well looks more promising than The Boss Baby, but honestly they're kind of jinxing things by calling it the First Movie. Also I'm pretty sure the gag at the end was lifted from Suburban Commando, unless the books did it as well.

    I agree, especially against Wonder Woman. But don't forget

    Dax Shepard was turning into the 21st century's Hal Needham with Hit and Run, so don't write him out.

    Not doubting his talent. But Baywatch seems to have the upper hand so far. I mean, Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron play egotistical nuts who happen to be Lifeguards. How funny is that?

    DreamWorks, for the first time, outsourced the entire production to a studio in Quebec (Mikros Image, which was responsible for the computer animated portions in The Little Prince). They did this to help keep the budget down. So the budget for this is probably closer to $70-80 million than the standard $120 million budgets DWA usually gives their films. So even if this pulls in Turbo numbers, it should still gain a profit. Smart thinking on their part.

    Don't think the CHiPs insult is entirely needed, though Warner Brothers doesn't seem to have much confidence in it. They haven't really given it much promotion. Dwayne Johnson has proven he can pull in an audience and the general public seems to enjoy his comedic roles. So I expect Baywatch to do pretty well.
