Illumination's The Grinch

The first trailer has been released for The Grinch, Illumination and Universal Pictures’ take on the Dr. Seuss holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

The story has been adapted multiple times, with the most well-known being the beloved 1966 animated short starring Boris Karloff as the voice of the Grinch. Another well-known adaptation is the 2000 live-action movie directed by Ron Howard and starring Jim Carrey in the title role. This time around, as we found out back in 2016, it’s Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Doctor Strange) voicing Mr. Grinch.

Despicable Me 3

Illumination Entertainment has released a new trailer for Despicable Me 3, which is set to be released in theaters this summer.

The animated trilogy-maker once again follows Gru (Steve Carell), his family, and his Minions. This time around Gru has to deal with Balthazar Bratt (voiced by South Park co-creator Trey Parker), who uses the character he played as a child star in the ’80s as his villainous persona, while also considering a return to villainy himself after meeting his long-lost twin brother Dru.

Sing Interview Garth Jennings

In Illumination’s latest film, Sing, Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) is holding a singing competition in his dying theater in a last ditch effort to scrounge up the money needed before the bank can repossess his beloved property. The optimistic koala settles on five contestants: a mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a timid elephant (Tori Kelly), a pig (Reese Witherspoon), a gorilla (Taron Egerton), and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson), in hopes that they can generate the funds necessary to keep the theater afloat but also bring back interest in genuine talent. Little does he know that the road to success isn’t easy, but with a little hard work and some faith, it can be done.

We had a phone interview with the film’s director Garth Jennings (A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Son of Rambow) to talk about what it was like to get clearance for the songs, working on his first animated film, his reaction to all the positive buzz, and much more. Check it out below.

Despicable Me 3

Illumination Entertainment is a fine animation studio, but despite their well-convinced stories, the execution comes nowhere near the level of Disney or Pixar. If you had to ask what their flagship film would be, it would most probably be the Despicable Me films.

Despicable Me took the studio to where it is now, and Universal has released the first trailer for Despicable Me 3, starring Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, and Trey Parker.

The Secret Life Of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets

Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG | 98 Minutes
Release Date: July 8th, 2016

The whole idea that there is a life that humans do not know about when they live in their residence is not exactly original storytelling. We’ve seen it in The Brave Little Toaster and three Toy Story films. While those films focused on inanimate objects, we hardly ever seen a film that centers on pets, and if you’re a pet owner like myself, you often wonder what exactly goes on when you are way – unless you have cameras to watch over them.

So like those animated films, The Secret Life of Pets explores an exaggerated version of that narrative. While Illumination entertainment tells a hilarious story that is a culmination of every story of a pet trying to get back to its master mixed with Hanna Barbara cartoon vibes, it doesn’t quite reach the emotional level of tear shedding you would see in a Pixar film. Not a huge takeaway, but the film feels more like a Tom and Jerry cartoon that goes on a bit longer than it should. Read my full review below.

Trey Parker

In addition to the announcement that Sherlock and The Hobbit star Benedict Cumberbatch would be voicing the Grinch in a new animated take on How the Grinch Stole Christmas from the makers of Minions and the upcoming Secret Life of Pets, Illumination Entertainment also covered the trilogy-maker in the franchise that put them on the map, Despicable Me, during their CinemaCon presentation.

Despicable Me 3 is scheduled to be released on June 30, 2017, just a handful of months before the release of the above mentioned new take on The Grinch. But it’s a very interesting casting announcement that’s grabbing the headlines. Trey Parker, who co-created South Park with Matt Stone and provides the voices for many of the hit animated show’s characters such as Eric Cartman and Stan Marsh, is set to voice the third installment’s villain.
