First originally pegged to precede screenings of Disney•Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur,’ a new ‘Monsters University’ short film, ‘Party Central,’ will now play in front of ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ when it hits cinemas in March. ”When you first meet the Oozma Kappas,” writer-director Kelsey Mann tells EW, “they go to their fraternity house and the first thing they say is, ‘Welcome to party central! We haven’t thrown a party yet, but when we do we’ll be ready,’ I kept telling Dan [Scanlon], ‘I really want to see their party. We have to do it in the credits or something.’ Then when the idea of doing a short came up, we were like, ‘That could be the party!’”
‘Party Central’ will feature the return of Billy Crystal and John Goodman as the respective voices of Mike and Sulley along with a number of other familiar voice talents from the world of ‘Monsters University.’ In the six-minute short, which Disney first debuted at last year’s D23 Expo, Mike and Sulley and their Oozma Kappa frat brothers try to throw a monster blowout party but are dismayed to find that no one is showing up. Fortunately, they have some extra inter-dimensional doors handy, which they put to creative use (we won’t spoil how here) to get the party rocking.
Hot on the heels of the Batman (Will Arnett) and Superman (Channing Tatum) character posters, Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this Benny (voiced by Charlie Day) character poster for ’The LEGO Movie.’ Scheduled for a February 7th release in the US and a February 14th bow in the UK, ’The LEGO Movie’ is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) from their own original screenplay. The film features the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Day, Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders, and Morgan Freeman.
Chris Pratt stars as Emmet. Oscar winner Morgan Freeman and Elizabeth Banks will star as two of Emmet’s fellow travelers: Vitruvius, an old mystic; and tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest. She also calls upon the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure voiced by Will Arnett, with whom she shares a history. Will Ferrell will play Emmet’s primary adversary, President Business; Liam Neeson is the president’s powerful henchman, Bad Cop; Nick Offerman is a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Brie is a member of Emmet’s team with a powerful secret.
Walt Disney Pictures has debuted this TV spot for the upcoming Muppets sequel, ‘Muppets Most Wanted.’ Set for a March 21st release, the ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ story finds the Muppet repertory company enjoying a triumphant world tour, only to become tangled up with a criminal mastermind named Constantine, who is out to steal an enormous diamond – and who happens to be a dead ringer for Kermit. Starring opposite the Muppets this time are Ricky Gervais (as Constantine’s villainous sidekick), Tina Fey (as a Russian prison guard), and Ty Burrell (as an Interpol agent).
James Bobin, who helmed the 2011 ‘Muppets’ film, is returning to direct the follow-up and co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller. ‘The Muppets’ grossed $158 million worldwide and relaunched the long-running Jim Henson-created franchise for the studio. It starred and was co-written by Jason Segel, but he is not returning for the sequel. The full synopsis for ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ can be read below.
USA Today has unveiled this first still from the upcoming road trip comedy ‘Tammy,’ featuring Melissa McCarthy (who also co-wrote the film with her husband and first-time director Ben Falcone) and Susan Sarandon as the titular Tammy and her grandmother, Pearl. Set for July 2nd, ‘Tammy’ also stars Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd and Kathy Bates.
Tammy is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl, is her only option—with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
These three new international posters have arrived online for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ courtesy of Digital Spy, IGN & Oleg Gaiko, Additionally, the rather excellent ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ viral website, The Daily Bugle, has been updated with an interesting new post on the trial of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans):
The trial of Dr. Curt Connors came to an end as the former geneticist for Oscorp Industries was found guilty on all twenty counts for which he was indicted, including the murder of NYPD Captain George Stacy.
Connors and his attorney, Anne Weying, were unable to convince the jury that he was not responsible for his deadly actions while transformed. His defense that he only injected himself with the serum that changed him into the Lizard to prevent Oscorp Industries from experimenting on innocent civilians did not sway the jury.
