The minions are coming, the minions are coming! Our favorite short, yellow, overall-clad, goggle-sporting workers from 2010′s animated film Despicable Me — which starred Steve Carell, Jason Segel, and Russell Brand — and 2013′s upcoming Despicable Me 2 will be coming to a theater near you on Dec. 19, 2014, EW has confirmed.

The 3D-CG spinoff will be directed by Pierre Coffin, who co-directed the original movie and its upcoming sequel with Chris Renaud. This new minions project will be co-directed by Kyle Balda. The film will also be produced by Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. This project marks Universal Pictures’ fifth motion picture collaboration with Illumination.

Jennifer Lopez is working on a 3D concert film

Jenny from the block is big-screen bound once more. EW has confirmed that the former American Idol judge is currently shooting footage for a forthcoming 3D concert film. The movie, titled Dance Again, will be an account of Lopez’s career over the last few years. No word yet on how Idol will figure in, but it’s got to be more than a footnote in the final product.

Lopez, a co-star of this spring’s underwhelming ensemble comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting, will be taking a gamble by making a concert film. While Justin Bieber‘s 2011 multidimensional flick was a box-office hit, similar efforts by the Jonas Brothers, the cast of Glee, and Katy Perry all underperformed. Perhaps Lopez could try courting success by appealing to Millennial nostalgia in her movie; after all, it’s working for 98 Degrees.

James Cameron makes deal to bring his 3-D wizardry to China

Avatar director James Cameron’s company is launching a joint venture in China to market its 3-D technical wizardry to the country’s fast-developing film and television industries. Cameron Pace Group’s announcement Wednesday comes as the fast growth of China’s film market is attracting Hollywood studios that are rushing to link up with local partners.

The venture with two Chinese partners will supply 3-D filming technology and production services, said Cameron and his business partner, Vince Pace. They said they are discussing possible collaboration with state broadcaster China Central Television on developing 3-D TV. “This is an enormous untapped market that is right on the verge of the transition from 2-D to 3-D,” said Cameron in an interview. “This is the best place for us to create a kind of second home.” READ FULL STORY

'Oz the Great and Powerful' Comic-Con Panel: No ruby slippers, but a green Mila Kunis? -- TRAILER

The Project: Oz the Great and the Powerful, a prequel where the wonderful wizard (James Franco) isn’t such a great guy.

He’s a con artist who gets swept away to that magical land and crosses paths with three witches: good Glinda (Michelle Williams), naïve Theodora (Mila Kunis) and more dubious Evanora (Rachel Weisz.)

The Panel: Director Sam Raimi, Kunis and Williams. The Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick moderated.

The Big Revelations: We see Glinda, Theodora, and Evanora in the normal hues of the actresses — but the final shot is of a bright green claw scratching lines in a table top.

Somebody goes green — and once you go green, you apparently go mean.

Check out the footage after the jump!

What did Michael Fassbender say at the end of 'Prometheus'? Language consultant reveals all

ROBOTS-PROMETHEUS

WARNING: This post contains Prometheus spoilers.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus prompted a lot of questions from cinemagoers, like “What the f—?” and “No, seriously: What the f—?” We can’t provide answers for either of those queries. But we can resolve the question of what Michael Fassbender’s android David said to the Engineer just prior to the alien going ape and trying to kill everyone in sight.

First Look: Angelina Jolie as the evil sorceress 'Maleficent'

“I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy.”

Most moms don’t get the chance to say something like that, but Angelina Jolie is an unusual case. When she said this to EW, plans for the film version of Maleficent were still a few months off, but production is now underway on the update to the 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty.

Disney has released the first image of the actress as the villainess in this live-action twist, which focuses not on the good princess Aurora, but on the backstory that led Maleficent to turn against the fairy-tale kingdom.

'Brave' premiere debuts Dolby Atmos system: Is '3-D sound' better than 3-D cinema?

When Dolby took on the theater naming rights to the famed Hollywood venue that was once known as the Kodak, the audio technology company understood that it had a golden opportunity to showcase its brand new “Atmos” acoustic system. Currently employed in 14 theaters in North America, the state-of-the-art system can pump up to 128 separate channels into a single theater, creating a soundscape of unprecedented detail.

So how do bagpipes sound on it?

That was the question hovering in the air (literally!) at Monday night’s premiere of Disney-Pixar’s distaff Celtic animated adventure Brave in the Dolby Theater, the first time Dolby Atmos was put into practical use. READ FULL STORY

'Resident Evil: Retribution' trailer -- Zombies and Milla Jovovich in bondage gear

Resident-Evil-Retribution_320.jpg

The staggeringly successful Resident Evil movie franchise is one of my big guilty pleasures. The films’ zombie-featuring carnage, enjoyably preposterous plot twists, and apparent propensity for cladding star Milla Jovovich in items from the Hustler store’s S&M spring collection more than make up for any arguable lack of Chekhovian character development.

The trailer for the fifth RE movie, Resident Evil: Retribution, has just hit the web and looks encouraging. Which is to say, it boasts undead mayhem, the presence of characters who shuffled off this mortal coil way back in the first movie, and the sight of Jovovich wearing the kind of outfit more usually associated with newspaper stories headlined NAKED SENATOR ARRESTED IN DUNGEON-BROTHEL STING.
