This Is the Moment That Saved 'Sausage Party,' According to Seth Rogen

Wed, 08/10/2016 - 12:03

Typically a movie starring insanely funny people like Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Nick Kroll, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson wouldn't need to be saved. Moviegoers would see those names, realize the combination of all those people will certainly produce something funny (and perhaps even magical), and they'd happily head out to the theater to check it out. Not the case with Sausage Party, which is inherently risky because it's the rare R-rated animated comedy. We haven't seen...

A 'Man of Steel' Sequel Is on Its Way -- Here's What We Know

Tue, 08/09/2016 - 04:18

Most everyone who saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had to admit that Ben Affleck's Batman stole the movie from Henry Cavill's Superman. In part, that was by design, since Batman's older, angrier new persona needed to be established to pave the way for the creation of the Justice League. Also, the movie needed to distinguish Affleck's Batman from the very fine portrayal of the character embodied by Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's popular trilogy. Where did...

Fri, 08/05/2016 - 09:30

When Sausage Party hits theaters on August 12, it'll be the first R-rated animated movie to get a wide theatrical release since 2007's Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And while it may look like a straight-up Pixar spoof on the outside, Sausage Party is so much more than a spoof in that it works really hard to be just as funny, emotional and memorable as anything from the animation wizards at Disney and Pixar.
