New animated ‘Jetsons’ movie in the works from Warner Bros

New animated ‘Jetsons’ movie in the works from Warner Bros

The last time we saw The Jetsons, the family from the '60s cartoon set in the future, on the big screen was way back in 1990. 25 years later, and it looks like Warner Bros. is ready to give the series another chance, as Variety has reported that the studio just hired writer Matt Lieberman to put together a new script. A live-action Jetsons movie is said to have talked about for years, but this is believed to be a different project and will most certainly be animated.

Netflix strikes deal with Duplass brothers for 4 movies

Netflix hasn't been bashful about its plans to release movies and otherwise shift the nature of entertainment consumption, and keeping in step with that is a new announcement tacking a couple more movies to the company's production plans.

DreamWorks Animation reveals restructuring plan, will nix 500 jobs

DreamWorks Animation reveals restructuring plan, will nix 500 jobs

DreamWorks Animation has produced some popular movies, but the company itself has been facing some struggles for a while, and now it seems it has a plan in place to address that. Unfortunately, according to a recent announcement by the company, that plan involves a restructuring that will require 500 jobs to be cut. When precisely those jobs will be nixed hasn't been detailed, though it seems it will be taking place in the relatively near future. In addition, the company will be shifting its creative focus, and that'll mean fewer movies.

Theater Mode will auto-silence your phone at the movies

Theater Mode will auto-silence your phone at the movies

Microsoft has patented a feature for their phones that'll make the whole process of going to the movie theater a lot easier. Not that it's supremely difficult to turn your phone off before a movie begins, but the Microsoft patent that's popped up today will make entering the movie theater the switch. You'll have Normal Mode and Theater Mode - kind of like Airplane Mode, but switched on automatically, right when you walk in the door - and how dare you think you should have sound on your phone during The Hobbit.

Steve Jobs biopic begins filming in his childhood garage

Earlier this week saw film crews setting up at the childhood home of Steve Jobs in Los Altos, California to begin shooting the new biographic movie based on the Apple co-founder. With filming scheduled to take place in the house's garage on Friday and Saturday, crew members could be seen redecorating to make it appear as it did almost 40 years ago when Jobs and Steve Wozniak worked inside building the first Apple computers, with old Bob Dylan posters prominently hanging from the walls.

Escape from New York remake once penned by Star Wars’ Gary Whitta

At one point in the very recent past, Gary Whitta was hired to script the first in a series of stand-alone Star Wars movies. These movies would star characters like Boba Fett and Han Solo - and they're still on the books once Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released. Whitta has revealed today that he'd also been working on another cult classic film within the past couple of years - one that's just been acquired by Fox. Here you're seeing the title for Gary Whitta's synopsis for a remake of the 1981 John Carpenter cult classic film Escape from New York.

LEGO Movie Oscar snub: not a tragedy

This morning it was made clear by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that The LEGO Movie wasn't up to snuff for their Oscars awards ceremony. The Oscars, previously known as The Academy Awards, have selected five (as always) nominees for Animated Feature Film including Big Hero 6, Song of the Sea, The Boxtrolls, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, and How to Train Your Dragon 2. Fear not though, LEGO lovers, the creators of the film aren't fretting - in fact, one of the two directors of the film has called this situation "not a tragedy."

Guardians of the Galaxy: 8-bit Cinema version

Guardians of the Galaxy: 8-bit Cinema version

It has become something of an honor for a movie to be turned into a pixelated rendition of its normal self, and we have seen many examples of this in the past thanks to the folks at CineFix. The Matrix, The Avengers, and many (many) more have been given an 8-bit makeover, some of them in the style of classic video games, others as merely classics-inspired truncated versions of the movies themselves. Joining them all is Guardians of the Galaxy.

Avengers: Age of Ultron: the second trailer arrives

Avengers: Age of Ultron: the second trailer arrives

Can't get enough Avengers? If so, Marvel's recent YouTube activity will have you happy. The company has officially released the second trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and with it comes a very somber mood with additional looks at the upcoming show. There's 1:40 minutes of footage, and it seems more tailored toward tweaking the viewer's emotions rather than presenting any big new look at the movie and its story. As always, we have the trailer available after the jump!

Marvel’s Ant-Man: first full length trailer goes live

Marvel’s Ant-Man: first full length trailer goes live

Last week, Marvel teased eager fans with a pre-movie trailer video that offered clips from the actual first trailer -- only they were in tiny ant-sized windows too small for anyone to actually see. We blew up the clips and they gave a fuzzy, if somewhat frustrating glimpse at what was going on in the scenes, but ultimately it was a wait-and-see game until the actual trailer was released. Now it's here, and we get a full human-sized look at those clips, as well as nearly two minutes of other footage.
