Nickelodeon’s Rango holds strong at the box office

Nickelodeon's Rango holds strong at the box office

Three weeks in, and Rango is still trucking along at the box office. Nickelodeon’s quirky CG adventure has pulled in over $92 million in its nearly month-long run, with an additional $15 million just this weekend. In fact, the numbers were impressive enough that the film still pulled in at second place, just narrowly losing out to the newcomer Limitless. Working with Paramount on this project, Nickelodeon could potentially shift gears with Rango, easing the story into a franchise: sequels, spin-offs… maybe an animated series to appear on Nick? All possibilities are open for now. Which would you like to see happen?

Gnomeo & Juliet: What’s In a Gnome Featurette

Gnomeo and Juliet What's In a Gnome Featurette

Much like Romeo and Juliet, Gnomeo and Juliet are two characters sharing a forbidden love — except theirs is much less historical and much more …gardeny. But regardless of their CG animated form, the basics of William Shakespeare’s play remains true, with Gnomeo and Juliet looking for everlasting happiness in the middle of their families’ feud. Rocket Pictures, Starz Animation, and Touchstone Pictures are readying their 3D film for theaters tomorrow, February 9th, just in time for the Valentine’s Day holiday. Take a look at the latest featurette, “What’s in a Gnome”

Gnomeo & Juliet in theaters February 11

As we quickly approach Valentine’s Day’s holiday and season of love, its important to reflect upon the most famous and romantic relationship of them all; Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s tribute to the heart. Now, it’s a little known fact that Mr. Shakespeare, or “Willy” as he liked to be known, was a fan of stories and re-tellings. He also enjoyed spoofs, cartoons, garden gnomes, Elton John music, and CG animated 3D films. …at least, that’s what we’ve heard. And if, in fact, all of that were somehow amazingly true, we imagine Willy would have loved to see Gnomeo & Juliet, the upcoming film that combines all of those facets. The Rocket Pictures, Starz Animation, and Touchstone Pictures production is set for theaters February 11th, so be sure to go and attend in Willy’s honor!

Occasionally, movie ideas come along that studios have to fight over. Such is the case with Gnomeo and Juliet, a 3D animated take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet being produced by eOne Entertainment as part of Touchstone Pictures. And whom did they wrestle ownership away from? None other than Disney, legends in the field of CG toons. But as John Lasseter and the rest of the Pixar group merged back into Disney to focus on internal projects like this summer’s Toy Story 3, Gnomeo and Juliet made it’s way to Pathe International, set for a February 11th, 2011 release. The film will still be distributed internationally by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, with a soundtrack provided by Elton John and James Newton Howard.
