    Weekend Preview: 'Before Midnight' a Must-See, 'Fast & Furious 6' Nabs Good Reviews, 'Hangover' a Headache

    Memorial Day Weekend is bringing well-reviewed films both big and loud, and small and thoughtful (if also a bit loud: see a certain knock-down argument in "Before Midnight"). That film, Linklater's brilliant third installment in his romance trilogy starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, is receiving ...

    Immersed in Movies: Sizing Up 'Epic'

    Blue Sky's biggest achievement on Epic was going naturalistic for a more believable animation style. However, scale was the biggest challenge in delineating the human and microscopic forest worlds, according to producer Michael Travers, production designer Greg Couch, and animation supervisors Galen...

    Immersed in Movies: Chris Wedge Gets 'Epic'

    Epic is not only Blue Sky's best movie but also director Chris Wedge's most personal, too: a swashbuckling, samurai action/adventure that takes place in a lush, microscopic forest world. It's familiar and new; naturalistic and fantastical. And it's about looking beneath the surface and discovering h...

    Immersed in Movies: Exclusive Early Peek at Blue Sky's Star-Studded 'Epic' -- 'Avatar' Meets 'Gladiator'

    Blue Sky founder and director Chris Wedge recently gave a sneak peek of his latest animated feature, "Epic" (May 24), at Fox (you can view the new trailer below). It's certainly no "FernGully," and it's a far cry from "Ice Age" and everything else Blue Sky has ever made. It's more like "Avatar" meet...

    Watch: New Trailer For Animated 'Epic' Featuring Voices Of Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell, Christoph Waltz & More

    With two and a half months to go until the release of “Epic,” Blue Sky has dropped another trailer for the film that includes a few new reveals -- but quick cuts to ornate nature scenes viewed on a laptop likely don't do justice to their intended 3D glory.

    Watch: New Full-Length Trailer For Blue Sky's Animated 'Epic' Debuts

    Back in 2006, "Ice Age" director Chris Wedge announced that his next directorial effort would be "Leaf Men," based on the William Joyce children's book "The Life Men and the Brave Good Bugs." (Joyce also conceived and co-produced this week's big animated extravaganza, "Rise of the Guardians.") Fox, ...

    Watch: Trailer For Fox & Blue Sky's Miniaturized 'Epic' Debuts

    Well, a movie calling itself "Epic" should probably kick off with an appropriately epic trailer. While we didn't quite get that with this, the first glimpse from the Fox/Blue Sky Studios' (loose) adaptation of the William Joyce book "The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs," it's still a promising-enou...

    Voices Assemble! Beyonce, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville, Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis & Steven Tyler Are 'Epic'

    20th Century Fox and Blue Sky have certainly never been shy about padding out their animated movies with as many big time celebrity voices as possible, and while the jury is still out on whether or not it makes a difference to the quality of the end product, it certainly can't hurt, and it makes...
