Here's the US Trailer for Ghibli's When Marnie Was There

Since Studio Ghibli is still stuck in purgatory, and haven't announced a new feature since all of that financial weirdness reared its ugly head some time ago, When Marnie Was There might possibly be the studio's final film. ...

Trailer for Justice League: Gods & Monsters is better than that other leaked video

So the other day, Zack Snyder tweeted out a short teaser to promote the five second tease of a trailer that WB wants you to go and buy IMAX tickets to see. Since that whole situation was ridiculous, we kept ourselves clean o...

Adam West and Burt Ward BAMFing back into action for animated Batman

Anyone who doesn't like the Adam West Batman TV show is clearly not someone you should be associating with. Now that it's finally on Blu-ray we've all been given a chance to watch its splendor once again, and it seems we...

Smurfs reboot gets a release date

I know what you're asking yourself, and yes, the Smurfs are getting another movie and despite the fact that the whole premise was actually making a ton of money Sony has decided to reboot the series. They'll be releasing the ...

FlixList: Ten NEW Cartoons that Deserve Movies

Did you hear the recent news? They’re going to make an Adventure Time movie, and honestly, that’s pretty darn rad. I love a good cartoon to movie adaption—and not just a live action adaption or remake, we ho...

First trailer for Dragonball Z: Fukkatsu no F features a golden Frieza

I don't think I've ever talked about it here, but Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods was one of the funnest animated films I saw last year. Didn't give it enough credit because it was essentially an hour of a dude punching a giant...

Review: The Tale of Princess Kaguya

Isao Takahata is one of the directors out of Studio Ghibli that seems to be less discussed by fans in the west.  Takahata is responsible for directing some of the most riveting and eerie films to come from the Japanese a...

Review: Shaun The Sheep

It's hard to believe that Shaun The Sheep is only Aardman's fourth stop motion feature film. The studio initially made its name in the UK with short films in the 70s and 80s such as Creature Comforts, but it was with the re...

Review: The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

This may come as a surprise to you, but Spongebob Squarepants is still the juggernaut of a cartoon it was when it first debuted back in 1999. Never ceasing to keep kids' attention thanks to its unique characters and ever evol...

Super Bowl TV Spot for Minions

They're baaaaaaack! Or, rather, they're here, since Minions serves as a prequel. Arguably the best characters in the Despicable Me franchise finally have their own film, and I couldn't be more excited. In Minions, ...

Super Bowl TV Spot for Spongebob: Sponge Out of Water

I haven't been very silent about this, but I am actually mad hyped for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water. The cartoon has been very good the past few years (and was even entertaining at inception, too), an...

Dreamworks Animation cuts 500 jobs, reveals new release slate

Back when Dreamworks Animation needed to compete with Disney, they stopped making films in 2D (even if those films are some of the greats) and churned out ten Shreks to a very successful box office performance each time. Basi...

Megan's Top 15 Movies of 2014

2014 was a pretty great year for movies, so coming up with a year end list was pretty tough for me. Originally I thought I'd just do top 5, and then top 10... but no. It had to be top 15 because I saw so many awesome films last year, and it just wouldn't be fair to ignore the movies in the 11 through 15 slots.  So let's get the ball rolling...

First trailer for DC's direct to video Batman vs. Robin

Ever since the animated Justice League specials committed to the New 52 continuity (after The Flashpoint Paradox), they haven't been very good. I don't know what's to blame for that either. Is it the comics themselves? Is it...

Review: Song of the Sea

Anybody who knows me knows that seals are my favorite animal, so when I started seeing advertisements for Song of the Sea, I knew I had to check it out. Cartoon Saloon had already impressed me with its first feature film, Sec...

Nick's Top 5 Animated Movies of 2014

2014 was a pretty good year for animated films. But unlike the year before, which featured a huge Disney film with headlining women and lots of family friendly features, 2014 was a complete boy's club. While there were a few ...

Newest trailer for The Peanuts Movie gives us more Snoopy

You know how I wrote that list of the ten best trailers of 2014? Well, I've already found my favorite trailer of 2015. It may be mostly the same as last trailer we got for The Peanuts Movie, but shows off what great trailer ...

Ninjai: The Little Ninja finally returns with film teaser

Remember Ninjai: The Little Ninja? No! Back in the early aughts the Ninjai Gang put out a series of animations that were pretty much the best flash stuff you could see online. Brutally violent and full of awesome action, it ...

New image and logo from Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

For a Pixar film we've heard relatively little about The Good Dinosaur. That may be because it's run into so much trouble in production. It was delayed from a 2014 release to a November, 2015 release, but things seem to be ro...

Full trailer for Disney/Pixar's Inside Out is adorable

I've been digging how Pixar has been marketing their upcoming animated project, Inside Out. This latest trailer, like the last, may not feature any of the story, but it's got enough substance to chew on. I will never kn...
