Kung Fu Panda 2, trailer & poster

Read More

ok, ok, I know the outcry of conventional wisdom still scorns Kung Fu Panda for sweeping the Annies in 2008 when everybody’s darling was WALL-E. But there’s always been room in my heart for both films and after the dust settles I try to stop wringing my hands about what movie won what trophy each season.

[UPDATE: We've learned from Alex Billington at Coming Soon that the poster everyone grabbed yesterday for Tree of Life is not the official distribution poster from Fox Searchlight. The design we saw yesterday was created as an international sales tool.

Thanks to Hunter for the overnight tip to the full reveal of Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock. Peter Jackson anticipates the question, “If it’s going to be this realistic, why not film it on real sets with real people?” ‚ÄúWith live action you‚Äôre going to have actors pretending to be Captain Haddock and Tintin,‚Äù says Jackson. ‚ÄúYou‚Äôd be casting people to look like them.
