First full trailer for Planes: Fire and Rescue

For a guy who doesn't like the idea of Planes as much as I do (hence the running "F**king Planes" joke), I seem to be writing about it quite a bit. I'm just mad at its origin, is all. It was a made for home video project tha...

Justice League: War to begin DC Animated continuity

I'm not the most knowledgeable comic book fan, but if I had any focus, it would be DC Comics due to their awesome cartoons I had growing up. And while I've been sad they're gone now, DC is currently trying to get back to thei...

Frozen is highest grossing original animated film ever

I don't think anyone would have guessed that Disney would be back on top of the animation world, knocking Pixar down, at the beginning of 2013, but it seems the animation studio finally figured out (with the help of Pixar hea...

Captain Underpants Voice Cast Revealed

Like my pal/immediate superior Alec, I too was a fan of the Captain Underpants comics in my youth. I also didn't know Universal was doing a Captain Underpants movie, which is both a pleasant surprise and a recipe for disaster...

Frozen's "Let It Go" sung in 25 different languages

No, I'm not sick at all of talking about how much I loved Disney's Frozen (put it on all three of my Top X of 2013 lists this year), so of course I'm using this time to gush again. Here we have a video of Idina Menzel's "Let...

Second Peabody and Sherman trailer is Valedogtorian

Mr. Peabody & Sherman is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated films of the year. I wasn't too impressed by the film's first trailer, but I've come around thanks to this second one. The focus is rightly on Mr. Peab...

Pixar short Party Central playing before Muppets

We've got a long wait for new Pixar movies since they've delayed The Good Dinosaur to 2015 (thankfully Disney is picking up the slack), but that doesn't mean we'll be completely devoid of the ol' Pixar magic in 2014. In the g...

Nick's Top 5 Animated Movies of 2013
