Green Lantern: The Animated Series in development

Green Lantern: The Animated Series in development

Though we have to wait until the spring of 2012 to get a real feel of the upcoming Green Lantern: The Animated Series, folks at Cartoon Network have recently handed out a few early looks at the project to keep us happy! Included amongst the details are a number of renderings, showing Hal Jordan, Kilowag, Atrocitus, the Guardians, Salaak, Zilius Zox, and a number of other all-stars we’ve all come to know and love from the DC Comics cast. New York Comic Con 2010 was a big source for the information, but a steady stream has continued to flow with new details ever since. What is known now is that the multiple color storylines of the Green Lantern series that debuted in comics a few years back will play heavily in the animated tale, using the Red Lanterns as the main villains. Check out the sneak peeks!

Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote star in Looney Tunes’ Fur of Flying

Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote star in Looney Tunes' Fur of Flying

The Road Runner runs. Wile E. Coyote chases. The struggle has gone on for 50 years, and will likely continue through the end of time. Though now, that chase has reached the Looney Tunes plateaus of both CG and 3D. And, no doubt, Wile E. Coyote is falling off said plateaus. The pair burst from the screen with state-of-the-art CG animation, rendered in stereoscopic 3D, in Fur of Flying, the second of three Looney Tunes theatrical 3D cartoon shorts featuring Wile E. Coyote’s epic quest to capture the Road Runner. Those of you who checked out Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole this weekend got your first look at the duo, and ACME products like a homemade helicopter helmet. Soaring through the sky and over the cliffs, it’s a surefire way to catch the Road Runner … assuming he can avoid military testing grounds.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole makes box office debut

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole makes box office debut

This past weekend, a legend was born on the screen. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps!! No… wait. Well, OK, the Wall Street movie did come in first once all was said and done at the box office. But, more importantly to us, the Owls of Ga’Hoole got their time to shine as well, with Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole just missing the top spot in it’s first weekend at theaters. Pulling in just over $16 million dollars over the three day span, the film is running on a par with expectations, which predict the tale to catch on slowly, but pick up steam as it goes. Alpha and Omega, the other animated flick in the bunch, was down to 8th place in it’s 5th week at the box office. Have you seen either, both, or neither?

Two weeks until the Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole

Two weeks until the Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

In two short weeks, on September 24th, Warner Bros. can tell spin a legend; The Legend of the Guardians. Like us, the film’s main character, Soren, learns of the Guardians of Ga’ Hoole from his father. The Guardians, we find, are a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. The stories remain just that, stories, until Soren’s older brother Kludd gets them both captured by St. Aggies. From there, Soren must decide to continue day dreaming, or to see if the tales are true; the Guardians of Ga’ Hoole are real. Soaring across the sea to find the Great Ga’Hoole Tree, home of the legendary Guardians, the brother’s seek the Guardians to defeat St.Aggies and the Pure Ones, and to save the owl kingdoms once more. The CG epic is sure to impress, showing in stunning 3D, with a voice cast including: Abbie Cornish, Emilie de Ravin, Ryan Kwanten, Helen Mirren, Sam Neill, Richard Roxburgh, Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving, and David Wenham

The Guardians of Childhood gets a new release date from DreamWorks Animation

The Guardians of Childhood gets a new release date from DreamWorks Animation

There’s a lot of shuffleboard being played with animated movies. Monsters, Inc. 2 has a new date, Beauty and the Beast 3D was pulled, and now it appears DreamWorks Animation has followed suit, changing the release date of their upcoming film The Guardians of Childhood (not to be confused with Guardians of Ga’Hoole’s Legend of the Guardians). In an effort to combat the mega popular Twilight Saga franchise and their upcoming Breaking Dawn, The Guardians moves from opening November 2nd 2012 to opening on November 21st 2012. The film features a group of heroes from various childhood tales: Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, a Genie, the Sandman, and Jack Frost. The group joins together in an effort to stop Pitch the Boogeyman from sending the world into “eternal darkness”. The CG animated comedy, “a contemporary fairytale”, is based on the books by William Joyce.
