    Watch: Gorgeous Trailer For Laika's Stop-Motion 'The Boxtrolls' Starring Ben Kingsley, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost

    With CG-animated blockbuster "How To Train Your Dragon 2" landing in theaters this week, it's not surprising that it seems to be cartoon week in the animation world. Only minutes ago, we had the trailer for DreamWorks Animation's "The Penguins Of Madagascar," and now, one of its fall rivals has also...

    David Gordon Green Teams With Laika, Interested In Making A Movie About Richard Pryor's Experience On 'Lost Highway'

    As initially chaotic the career choices of David Gordon Green appear, it should also be noted that the director maintains a consistent roster of collaborators.

    Laika Passes On Henry Selick's 'Shadow King,' Project Gets Shelved

    Such is the world we live in, where Len Wiseman gets hired to direct a reboot of "The Mummy," yet Henry Selick can't get a movie made at a studio. And while there was a brief ray of light for Selick's "Shadow King" (aka "Shademaker" ) after Disney scrapped it la...

    Henry Selick's Scrapped Disney/Pixar Project Might Be Headed Back To Laika

    Back in August, Disney shut down production on Henry Selick's eagerly anticipated new stop-motion animated film, which at one point bore the name "Shademaker," for a myriad of reasons - the tone and story for the movie never solidified the way the studio wanted, the production was moving way too slo...

    Review: Brilliant Animated Movie 'ParaNorman' Is One Of The Summer's Biggest (And Best) Surprises

    This summer has been full of big, glitzy animated movies from most of the major studios that have made tons of money but left audiences cold. None of them were particularly imaginative, entertaining or emotionally involving, instead choosing to coast on a steady stream of solid (if not exactly dazzl...

    The sheer thought of animated production house Laika making a new feature should excite most any cinephile or fan of animation, especially with their track record that includes “Coraline” and the upcoming and equally tantalizing "ParaNorman," the horror-themed story of a young ...

    Beautiful Trailer, Bland Poster Debut For 3D Stop-Motion Animated ‘ParaNorman’

    2011 hasn’t exactly been an exceptional year for animated films. Besides this spring’s deliciously strange “Rango” and this summer’s gorgeous, supple “Winnie the Pooh,” there hasn’t been a whole lot to fawn over, animation-wise. (When Pixar unloads a colossal letdown like “Cars 2,” you know the medium is having an “off year.”) Thankfully, 2012 is poised to be an embarrassment of riches, with new movies from proven studios like Blue Sky (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”), Illumination ("The Lorax"), Disney ("Wreck-It Ralph" and Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie") Aardman (“The Pirates! Band of Misfits”) and the beloved Studio Ghibli (“The Secret World o...
