Valentine's Gnomeo & Juliet in theaters today

Today is a day of love. Well, of a love movie. The love day is technically this Monday, but Valentine’s Day is but a mere holiday — we’re talking about the timeless tale of real love here!

But with plastic pink flamingos and lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find lasting happiness? Head to theaters and find out!

Claymation Eminem gets Brisk at Super Bowl XLV

Animated Eminem. Animnem. …Eminated? I don’t know, there’s gotta be some sorta funny and brief tag to give to the latest Brisk commercial featuring a stop-motion, claymation Eminem.

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.
