'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' trailer: Ty Burrell is another goofy dad, but this time also a dog

Mr-Peabody-and-Sherman.jpg

Your nostalgia is getting a 3-D twist.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman — from the 1960s Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon — are getting a big-screen adventure, featuring the voices of Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, Ariel Winter, Allison Janney, and Max Charles. In the family comedy, Sherman takes off with his dad’s time machine, The WABAC, screwing up history. When the gang must all go back to fix things, they stumble upon all sorts of big history moments — from the mummies in ancient Egypt to the painting of the Mona Lisa.

“At first, we were thinking, ‘Will we have to find somebody who will do a Bill Scott impression?’” director Rob Minkoff (The Lion King) recalled about casting Mr. Peabody at an event for the film this week. “That’s sort of where we quickly came to the conclusion that that would be a bad idea because we couldn’t really find anyone that did that. And so we sort of liberated our thinking and thought, ‘Who is this character and who is this character for today?’… This was something that was done over 50 years ago, and we wanted to make sure that we really brought him to life in the right way. And I think that Ty… he kind of embodied all the different aspects we were trying to convey, not just, you know, the intellect or the suave personality. But somehow, there was a sort of an underlying warmth that we really, really liked and wanted to bring to this character.”

'Moulin Rouge!' in 3-D? Baz Luhrmann says he wants to convert his hit musical

The opulent, candy-colored dance numbers in 2001′s Moulin Rouge! were some of the most eye-popping moments in the history of movie musicals.  But what if they had an extra dimension?

In an interview today on Entertainment Weekly Radio, director Baz Luhrmann says that Moulin Rouge! 3D might be in the works soon, joining the conversion craze that has produced hit rereleases like Titanic and The Lion King. “Because conversion is getting better and better, I’m going to ask the guys at Fox… maybe can we convert Moulin Rouge! to 3-D,” says Luhrmann, who shot The Great Gatsby (out on Blu-Ray Aug. 27) in 3-D. “Because I think in a strange way I was trying to make a 3-D movie.”

But Luhrmann isn’t looking to convert all his old titles. “I think Moulin Rouge! would suit it. Romeo + Juliet I’m not sure about,” he says.

Tune in to the Movie Editor’s Hour on Entertainment Weekly Radio, SIRIUS XM 105, today at 2 p.m. EST to hear the rest of our interview with Luhrmann. And let us know in the comments below: Would you see Moulin Rouge! again in 3-D?

Update: Luhrmann also shared his opinion on the news that Ben Affleck, who almost played Tom Buchanan in his adaptation of The Great Gatsby, has been cast as the new Batman.

'Peanuts' movie: Good grief, do we need a 3-D, CG-animated Charlie Brown?

Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Peppermint Patty will return to the silver screen in November 2015, timing that coincides with the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas, perhaps the most beloved cartoon in television history. But how will the new feature film — with 3-D, CG animation — compare to the hand-drawn charms of that 1965 small-screen classic? Or to the Charles Schulz comic strip that possessed an especially elusive brand of whimsy?

When Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip premiered in October 1950, it couldn’t have been more different from the comic strips stacked around it — among them Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant, Milton Caniff’s Steve Canyon, and Roy Crane’s Captain Easy – and maybe that’s why the initial public response could be summed up as a national shrug. That changed, of course, and the strip became the untouchable but beloved titan of its medium appearing in 2,600 newspapers in 21 languages reaching a collective readership north of 350 million.

The brand remains a powerhouse (Schulz ranked with Elvis and Marilyn Monroe as far as posthumous moneymakers in pop culture), which set the stage for the film being made by Fox Animation’s Blue Sky Studios, the Connecticut  team behind the Ice Age hit films and Horton Hears a Who. To get some long-view perspective on the project and the property, we reached out to Andrew Farago, curator of the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, and asked if CG will work for Peanuts.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It’s hard to get your arms around the singular and sustained success of Peanuts because it’s hard to find a comparison to it. Like Carson or Cronkite, Schulz had his own spot in the pipeline and that doesn’t happen now, really.

Andrew Farago: It’s hard to imagine any comic strip taking hold today the way that Peanuts has for several generations. Any 8- or 80-year-old knows what a security blanket is, or who Peppermint Patty’s best friend is, or “Good Grief!” and “Curse you, Red Baron!” Charles Schulz was beloved by millions — and that’s a conservative number — worldwide, and everyone knows Charlie Brown and Snoopy. If Schulz had been more comfortable in the public eye, he could have been another Walt Disney in terms of universal celebrity. But he was always about the work, and letting his characters speak for him, and I get the impression that’s exactly how he wanted it.

'Avatar 2' will utilize underwater performance capture, says producer

It’s been common knowledge for a while now that the upcoming Avatar sequels would be set at least partially underwater, thus affording director/adventurer James Cameron to combine his love of blockbuster action-romance with his love of the ocean. Given that the first Avatar was largely created on a green screen performance-capture stage, you would’ve figured that the underwater scenes in Avatars 2 & 3 would be shot dry-for-wet — the same way Cameron filmed Aquaman.

But Cameron’s longtime producer Jon Landau revealed at the NAB Technology Summit on Cinema that the sequels will use an intriguing new technology. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the producer explained, “We have kept a team of digital artists on from Avatar in order to test how we can create performance capture underwater… we could simulate water, but we can’t simulate the actor’s experience, so we are going to capture performance in a tank.” READ FULL STORY

Have you seen the trailer for the One Direction documentary, This is Us? Did you want there to be more shirtlessness? Did you want there to be more robots? Then we’re here to bring you a double-shot of good news. In a Twitter Q&A earlier today, director Morgan Spurlock — who once ate so much McDonald’s he became famous — gave more details about the film, which is being released in 3-D on Aug. 30.

To recap: The fivesome all care deeply about one another, all have great hair, and all treat Spurlock as if he were furniture. Will they be wearing shirts in the movie? They’re wild! Shirts are expensive. Music makes family. Who is Spurlock’s favorite guy? That’s one mystery he’ll never tell.

But really, the Q&A speaks for itself:
