The LEGO Movie franchise has proven that if you build it, they will come. Coming off of two widely successful films, The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, comes The LEGO Ninjago Movie – based off their Ninjago LEGO toyline. While the film is still set in the same LEGO world and has the same LEGO quirks – the self deprecating humor and pop culture nods – the film doesn’t pack the same punch as its predecessors. Which is ironic, because this is the most action-packed LEGO movie of them all. It’s filled with ninja action, mechs, and so much more. But a lackluster story that seems to be at odds with itself makes The LEGO Ninjago Movie the weakest of the three films. My full review below.
Warner Bros. has just released the first trailer for The LEGO Ninjago Movie that features the voice talents of Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Jackie Chan, Olivia Munn, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael PeÃ±a, and Zach Woods.
With The LEGO Batman Movie hitting theaters this weekend, now it seems like a perfect time to get our first look at newest spinoff. Check out the trailer along with a poster below.
Now here’s a franchise you likely weren’t expecting to hear about today.
It’s being reported that a new movie in the Shanghai Noon series is breathing again at MGM—well over a decade after the last installment. Noon was released in the year 2000 while its sequel, Shanghai Knights, was released in 2003. This new title will be called Shanghai Dawn.
On top of that, original stars Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson have both entered into negotiations to reprise their roles for the trilogy-maker.
It’s not too soon to talk about potential Oscar nominees, and the Academy has already named a few people who have contributed their talents to entertainment who will be getting lifetime achievement awards. A lot of the time these honorary awards go to people we rarely hear about. But come next year, the Academy will give out four lifetime achievement awards, one of which to go to actor and legendary stuntman Jackie Chan.
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.
