CG animated films, especially when done right, are perfect for IMAX screens. If you’re a fan of bright, vivid colors and wacky characters on HD screens as large as 72 feet, then Twentieth Century Fox’s recent announcement will be right up your alley.

According to the announcement, the studio has signed an agreement with IMAX Corporation, under which four of their upcoming films will be released in the immersive IMAX format in select international territories. The deal includes DreamWorks Animation’s Penguins of Madagascar, which is set to kick off internationally on Nov. 26; Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, launching on Dec. 4; Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb on Dec. 17; and EuropaCorp’s Taken 3 on Jan. 8. The films will be released in select IMAX theatres in countries throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

“We are excited to bring these four distinctly entertaining films to IMAX fans internationally and encouraged by this deal as we continue to grow our relationship with Fox,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “We believe these films are fantastic additions to our slate and hopefully a sign of more to come.”

DirecTV drops Nickelodeon, 14 other channels

If you turned on your TV this morning and saw that Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, MTV, Nicktoons was gone, then you are not alone. Late Tuesday night Viacom pulled off Nickelodeon and 14 other channels from the 20 Million or so DirecTV subscribers. DirecTV subscribers lost 14+ channels owned by Viacom in a dispute to pay the channels DirecTV was brodcasting.  Viacom sent letters to DirecTV on Tuesday ordering them to remove the channels by midnight or face legal action.

DirecTV was in hopes to continue broadcasting these channels as they tried to negotiate with Viacom. DirecTV said that Viacom was seeking 30% more fees, which would amount to an additional $1Billion. This would make the subscribers pay more.  DirecTV’s executive Derek Chang said ratings for many of (Viacom’s) main networks have plummeted, and much of Viacom’s programming can be seen for free online.” 

But Viacom wants to increase the amount by a couple of pennies per day, per subscriber. But both sides dropped negotiations. Early this Wednesday morning Viacom executive Denise Denson stated the last time we spoke with DirecTV at 11 a.m. (Tuesday) morning … there were no new ideas offered for resolution. In fact, the last proposal DirecTV had made was lower than anyone else pays in the industry, and a deal we said we would not do out of fairness to other distributors. … We are ready to talk at any time.

These are the channels that the DirecTV Subscribers lost:

Palladia,

Centric,

Tr3s,

CMT,

Nicktoons,

VH1 Classic,

TeenNick,

Nick Jr.,

Nick@Nite,

Spike,

BET,

VH1,

TV Land,

Comedy Central,

Nickelodeon

MTV

These Viacom channels are replaced with mixed channels from FX or Bravo. Sadly Viacom might keep it this way. Me and other 20 Million viewers lost shows like Legend of Korra, iCarly, Dora the explorer and classic cartoons and shows that just aired on Teen Nick.  Like, All that, Kenan and Kel, and Rugrats. Also BET’s Black Panther. And golden classics like I Love Lucy from TvLand. Let’s all hope that this doesnt last long.

And here’s the commercial for “Don’t let DirecTV drop your channel”

Penguins of Madagascar Win Another Emmy

It couldn’t have come at a better time, but in what seems to be a great complement to Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’s current box office success, the Nickelodeon spin off Penguins of Madagascar also received acclaim when it took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Animated Program last Saturday, June 23.

The National Academy of TV Arts & Sciences event took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and was produced by Emmy-awarded animation vets Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley (Kim Possible, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command).

Penguins of Madagascar, which debuted in Nickelodeon last November of 2008, beat other Nick shows such as Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and Spongebob Squarepants, as well as PBS’s Curious George and Side the Science Kid, and APT’s Peep and the Big Wide World. Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash also won the Outstanding Performance in a Children’s Series for his work on Sesame Street.

Celebrate Mother's Day with Nick's Penguins of Madagascar

Entitled “Smotherly Love”, the episode finds Ma, an empty-nested mother possum, taking up permanent residence in the Penguins’ Lair, due to the fact that it was the Penguins who destroyed her home, albeit accidentally, while fighting against Hans the Puffin.

Nickeleodeon has released a preview clip for the episode, featuring the gang of penguins trying their best to create the perfect mother’s day gift for Ma:

Nickelodeon will also continue the Mothers’ Day Celebration with the premiere of “Littlefoot”, in which Marlene finds herself in a dire need to see a concert in the park. Unfortunately, every time she leaves the zoo she transforms into a savage, feral monster.

Catch the Penguins of Madagascar “Smotherly Love” episode at 10:00 AM ET/PT this Sunday, May 13 on Nick.

Emmy Award-winning actress Melissa McCarthy (of Mike and Molly, Bridesmaids) guest stars on Nickelodeon’s hit CG animated series, The Penguins of Madagascar, this Sunday, May 6 at 10 AM ET/PT.

McCarthy will lend her voice to a love struck ostrich named Shelly, who will play a very important part in Rico’s life. In the episode, entitled “Love Takes Flightless”, the ostrich Shelly accidentally gets stuck in quick-drying cement, and only Rico can save her. The act of heroism results in Shelly falling in love with the penguin, but Rico’s heart belongs only to his doll.

The Penguins of Madagascar currently holds the record as Nickelodeon’s most-watched series premiere in network history with 6.4 million total viewers, boasting of six Daytime Emmy Awards in 2011, including Outstanding Children’s Animated Program, Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program (Danny Jacobs) and Outstanding Writing in Animation. Penguins also received the 2012 Golden Reel Award for Best Sound Editing: Animation in Television and two Annie Awards for Voice Acting in a Television Production and Editing in Television Production.

Noting the partnership’s success with The Penguins of Madagascar, Nickelodeon has big plans for the series, and has already crafted 52 episodes.
