Five years have passed since the heroic young Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended an injured dragon and forever changed the way the residents of Berk interact with the fire-breathers. Now, Vikings and dragons live side-by-side in peace on the fantastical isle that has been transformed into a dragon’s paradise. But when grown-up responsibilities loom on the horizon, Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless take to the skies in search of answers. It’s much more than he bargained for, though, when Hiccup discovers that a mysterious dragon rider is really his long-lost mother Valka (Cate Blanchett) and that the peace between dragons and Vikings is threatened by the power-hungry Drago (Djimon Hounsou) with help from the dragon trapper Eret, son of Eret (‘Game of Thrones’ actor Kit Harington).
As Astrid (America Ferrera), Gobber (Craig Ferguson) and Viking friends Snotlout (Jonah Hill), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and twins Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig) and Tuffnut (T.J. Miller), lend their support, Hiccup, his mother and tribal chief father Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), must work together to protect the dragons they have grown to love. In the process, Hiccup finds the answers he has been looking for in ways he could never have imagined. Written and directed by Dean DeBlois, ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2′ is loosely based on the book series of the same name by Cressida Cowell. The film opens on February 13th in the US and February 27th in the UK and Ireland.
In the original ‘How to Train Your Dragon,’ Hiccup’s world is flipped upside down when he encounters and befriends an injured dragon he names Toothless – and he gains the admiration of his father, the respect of the town, Berk, and even the affection of Astrid, the girl that he was pining for. And now this second film really maps Hiccup’s coming-of-age, and with him being groomed to become a Chief, he’s uncertain about the future...
Jay Baruchel: Yeah. Hiccup’s a bit of a square peg. I wouldn’t say he’s ahead of his time, but he doesn’t make a tonne of sense in the world he’s born into, but he’s found a way to make it his own. And we’ve seen some of the promise of the first movie realized a bit, and the obligations of adulthood are starting to mount and pile up and he knows that, as the son of the Chief, it doesn’t take a Math whiz to know that he’s next in line – and he struggles with that. And Berk is amazing now. If you live in Berk now and you don’t have a Dragon now you’re in the minority. There’s Dragon racing and it’s all this beautiful testament to what Hiccup was a part of in the first one in bridging the gap and bring them together. The emotional content, the action sequences, this second film is everything it’s supposed to be and then some. It’s really a pretty incredible, beautiful flick.

Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marza Animation Planet, a CG animation film production company of the SEGA SAMMY Group, have sent out a press release announcing a partnership to develop a film based on the beloved ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ video game series. A hybrid CG-animated/live-action feature, the movie will be written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux and produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner, along with Marza’s Takeshi Ito and Mie Onishi. Toby Ascher will serve as an executive producer.
The film will look to “capture Sonic’s irreverent tone and spirit, reuniting him with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman. Playful, mischievous, and quick on his feet in more ways than one, the world’s fastest hedgehog is known for his ability to move at supersonic speed to protect his friends from their enemies.” For more than two decades, Sonic has been one of the world’s biggest gaming icons and a $1 billion franchise with more than 140 million games sold. Check out the rest of the press release below.
This first clip has hit the web from writer/director Gregg Araki’s (Kaboom, Mysterious Skin) ‘White Bird in a Blizzard,’ which stars Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett. Eyed for release on iTunes and VOD on September 25th and in theaters on October 24th, ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ is based on the acclaimed novel by Laura Kasischke.
Set in 1988, Shailene Woodley stars as Kat, a college-bound teenager who is just discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality, when her mother (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, Kat barely registers her mother’s absence and certainly doesn’t blame her doormat of a father, Brock (Christopher Meloni), for the loss. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve’s disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother’s departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it.
