In the first trailer for the much-anticipated 3-D concert documentary, we see Perry (and the various shades of her technicolor hair) backstage, on stage, and through all of her hits on the path to superstardom over the past few years, including her divorce from comedian Russell Brand. She tells a crowd in the clip below, “Thank you so much for believing in my weirdness.” Fair enough, Katy. Check out the trailer below: READ FULL STORY

'Titanic' star Kathy Bates looks back: 'A lot of people thought that it was gonna be a disaster movie of another kind' -- VIDEO
When EW reviewed James Cameron’s Titanic in 1997, Owen Gleiberman gave it an A. “It’s the first disaster movie that can truly be called a work of art,” he wrote. But Kathy Bates, who costarred with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as good ol’ gal Molly Brown, is quick to remind us that after a year of industry insiders wondering whether Hollywood’s biggest gamble (which Cameron referred to as “a $190 million chick flick” in EW’s 1997 cover story detailing the film’s long, arduous journey to the screen), not everyone was anticipating a rave.
“There was a long shoot, and a lot of people thought that it was gonna be a disaster movie of another kind, that it was never gonna make any money,” she tells EW. “And I remember we had a band from Switzerland who specialized in playing music from that period, which was odd because they were never allowed to actually play. So they were always standing there in the Palm Court pretending to play. And we got a very funny Christmas card that year, because the shoot kept going on and on. Of course, they had to bring another studio onboard to get everybody paid. I can’t remember his name now. It was such a funny card: It was a picture of himself, there was a bowl of soup under his nose, and in it, the Titanic was sinking, and he said ‘Merry Christmas.’ I think we all sort of lost faith at times, and thought, Oh, here we go. This is just gonna be the biggest bomb, but Jim was right…” READ FULL STORY
William Joyce definitely has.
The artist and storyteller, who wrote the books Dinosaur Bob and George Shrinks and did character design for the movies Toy Story and Robots, wanted his daughter, Mary Katherine, and son, Jack, to have no shadow of doubt that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy were real. So he began planting evidence — like a bad cop, or maybe the world’s best dad.
Those efforts have led to a series of books and an upcoming 3-D film from DreamWorks Animation, Rise of the Guardians, in which tough-as-nails versions of childhood icons join forces to combat a Boogeyman named Pitch.
With a new trailer showing off the Nov. 21 movie, Joyce takes a deep dive with EW on the story behind his backstories.
Say what you like about the folks behind forthcoming horror sequel Piranha 3DD but at least they’re not trying to disguise their objectification of the female form as some arty fashion shoot or armless statue (that’s right, Venus de Milo, we’re talking about you). Warning: Not surprisingly, the trailer is definitely NSFW.
EW has confirmed that Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment are working on a 3-D animated production of Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat. Spurred by the recent box-office domination of The Lorax, the reboot will hope to succeed where Mike Myers’ 2003 live-action iteration of the 1957 classic failed. As initially reported by Deadline, Rob Lieber (who’s adapted Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day for Fox) has signed on the write the script, and Audrey Geisel, the widow of Dr. Seuss (né Theodore Geisel), will serve as executive producer. No release date is projected at this point.
As previously reported, Illumination is also working with Johnny Deep on a Seuss biopic.

Johnny Depp to possibly play Dr. Seuss in a live-action movie: The best pairing since ‘Fox in Socks’?
DreamWorks Animation previewed the first footage from its upcoming adventure saga Rise of the Guardians on Wednesday with the most detailed look so far at the movie’s take on some beloved childhood myths.
Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman …
Anyone who grew up hearing stories of these figures can conjure an image of them, but the animated feature debuting Nov. 21 this year fuses those kindly characters with a warrior mythology. They don’t just bring candy, presents, and dreams; they are relentless protectors of innocence and imagination locked in an ongoing war against fear itself.
The movie is based on the new series of books from writer and artist William Joyce (a recent Oscar-winner for The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.)
“If you haven’t met Bill, he’s somebody who really, really loves and celebrates the holidays full out, all the time, not just the biggies,” says Bill Damaschke, DreamWorks Animation’s Chief Creative Officer “He’s someone who has an Arbor Day party at his house.” READ FULL STORY

See, now this is how you do a cover of the Beach Boys‘ “Barbara Ann.” (Watch and learn, McCain.) In the new teaser trailer for the upcoming Despicable Me 2, the best things about the first, wildly successful Despicable Me — the minions — are back with their bizarrely cute antics. In the preview, four of the pill-shaped yellow minions sing an a cappella rendition of the Beach Boys classic with their own brand of indistinguishable lyrics. (I did catch “potato” in there at some point.)
Watch, and attempt to sing along, here:

Dr. Seuss described The Lorax as “shortish. And oldish. And brownish. And mossy. And he spoke with a voice that was sharpish and bossy.”
It’s the role Danny DeVito was born to play.
“Well, I always think of myself as being a little gruffer,” DeVito laughs. “But I knew it would be such a trip to hear my voice coming out of this wonderful, cuddly character.”
In the big-screen animated movie debuting tomorrow, DeVito not only voices the little furry guy who “speaks for the trees” in English, but also in the Spanish, Italian, Russian, and German versions. After the jump, we’ve got exclusive video of the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor grappling with the languages.
Meanwhile, DeVito answers a few burning questions for EW, such as: What does the Lorax eat? And how did he end up with that Jersey accent? READ FULL STORY
