A new trailer has been released for DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox’s Kung Fu Panda 3. The latest trailer again covers what will be taking pace in the movie, including Po’s reunion with his father and his return home to train his fellow pandas to defend themselves from a dangerous threat, the supernatural villain Kai. Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, and David Cross all return to voice their characters, while Bryan Cranston, Kate Hudson, and J.K. Simmons are the newcomers to the cast.
You can watch the new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3 below along with added bonus videos, one introducing the “Pandiva” Mei Mei (voiced by Hudson) and the other a music video for a song about Mei Mei titled “Nunchuck Princess” in which Jack Black gets to bring together his Po character and his Tenacious D singing voice.
DreamWorks Animation has released a new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3, the trilogy-maker in their hit animated franchise.
The trailer is brief, but features a nice tip of the hat to Star Wars. It involves Po (voiced once again by Jack Black) and his father Li (Bryan Cranston), a reunion that was teased at the end of Kung Fu Panda 2.
You can watch the new trailer and see a poster for the movie below.
It’s already been over two years since we found out that Bryan Cranston, Rebel Wilson, and Mads Mikkelsen (who has since departed the cast due to scheduling conflict) had been cast in Kung Fu Panda 3, joining returning stars Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu, David Cross, and Dustin Hoffman. It’s already been four years since Kung Fu Panda 2 arrived in theaters, believe it or not, on its way to $665.6 million worldwide.
Now the sequel has resurfaced as DreamWorks Animation begins promoting the movie. The first images have been released online and can be seen below, along with some quotes from the cast.
Every once in a while Adam Sandler steps away from his usual movies, the lighthearted rom-coms and goofy stuff, and does something more dramatic such as Punch Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, and so on.
When it comes to one of his latest projects, titled The Cobbler, things are a little bit different. The movie’s premise sounds like something you’d expect to see Sandler in (a cobbler discovers he can put on the shoes of others and become them!), but the thing here is that, while still clearly a comedy, it’s delivered a little more seriously, with Sandler seemingly using his more serious actor side for at least a chunk of it. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen, but you can see the trailer for yourself below.
Two landmark motion pictures have hit the 45th anniversary milestone this year, and both of them were instrumental in helping usher in the kind of norms, sensibilities, and somewhat radical attitudes that were beginning to burgeon in Tinseltown as the 1960s gave way to the 1970s.
One of them, The Wild Bunch, took screen violence and the western narrative to an entirely different level; the other, Midnight Cowboy, not only became the first X-rated motion picture to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it also exemplified a kind of realistic film in which the narrative doused its characters in strife, pain, and struggle, and didn’t offer a seamless resolution at its denouement, but rather the contrary. Its kind of downer tale also became a style and staple for many of the films which followed it into the mid 1970s such as Scarecrow, The Last Detail, etc.
