Get Ready for a Chipmunks Weekend

Get Ready for a Chipmunks Weekend

The CG-animated threequel featuring the classic singing critters is locked, loaded, and ready for the big screen this coming weekend. Entitled Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, the 3rd movie in the big screen Alvin and the Chipmunks series follows our favorie furry vocal maestros and their female counterparts, the Chipettes, as they get marooned in a tropical paradise.

Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D becomes ChipWrecked

Few things sound more enjoyable than taking a trip around the tropics on a luxury cruise ship. Unless, of course, there’s constantly the angry yelling of the phrase, “Alvin!!!” in the background. With that in mind, you’ll likely not want to board with Alvin, Simon, and Theodore this December, when they cast off in the latest 3D adventure, Alvin and the Chipmunks ChipWrecked. The film, formally titled Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D, follows the Chipmunks and the Chipettes (Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor) turning the cruise ship into their personal playground until they become shipwrecked on a desert island. As David Seville searches frantically, the 6 critters do their best waiting for rescue by singing, dancing, and generally rocking the island! Oh, and maybe there’s some buried treasure. We’ll see.

Thanks to the folks over at Majesco Entertainment Company, fans of Alvin, Simon, and Theodore wont just have to settle with a brand new 3D animated film this holiday season. Working alongside with Twentieth Century Fox and Bagdasarian Productions, Majesco will bring a brand new video game title based on the film, bearing the same name: Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Available on the Xbox 360 Kinect, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo DS a few weeks prior to the film’s December 16th box office release, the Behavior Interactive game allows fans to sing and dance with the Chipmunks and Chipettes. Hopefully, just in your living room and not abandoned on a desert island.

There was the original. There was the Squeakquel. Now, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore are returning in a third film to the franchise titled Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. The trio return in an adventure on the high seas, also marking the return of the Chipettes. Formerly known as Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D, the new adventure stars the little rodents and their rocking misadventures, as long as David Seville (Jason Lee, once again) allows them to get away with it. The story follows the gang aboard the Carnival Dream’s recreation area, and a number of tropical stops, including one desert island that they all get stuck on. Maybe the ‘Munks can jam there…? Check out the teaser trailer to see a sneak peek of the film in progress!

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel DVD review

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel DVD review

Alvin and the Chipmunks is box office gold. Even if you yourself have not seen either film, you know 20 people who have. The first film brought in over $200 million dollars in the US when it came out in 2007, only to be surpassed by the Squeakquel with $220 million earlier this year. With a third film on the way in 2011, in the luxuriously priced 3D format, Fox absolutely has a winner on it’s hands. Even better, with the quick turn around for the sequel from theaters to DVD and Blu-ray, we now have the movie in our hands. So how does the film hold up in the home edition?

Speedy Gonzales speeds to the big screen

Speedy Gonzales speeds to the big screen

The classic Looney Tunes character, Speedy Gonzales, is headed to the big screen in his own feature film. The mouse speedster, notably smaller than Warner Bros.’ other fast-moving icon, RoadRunner, will dazzle his way into theaters, with comedian George Lopez providing the voice. New Line Cinema plans the movie as a mix of live-action and CG animation, creating a hybrid in style similar to the Chipmunks movies. Speedy debuted in the 1950s as a regular nemesis of Sylvester the Cat, and even won an Academy Award in 1955 for best short subject with a toon simply named “Speedy Gonzales”. He’s last been seen in the movies “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” “Space Jam”, and “Looney Tunes: Back in Action.”

The Alvin and the Chipmunks movie made over $200 million dollars in the theater, and was seen by millions of fans, new and old.  So, it makes sense that they decided they’d make another one!  Twentieth Century Fox, the company behind the film, has formally listed the sequel’s first day as Christmas Day, December 25th, 2009.  Officially titled Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel, the second movie will of course feature the same level of nuttiness and mayhem the first one did.  …only more so!
