Put together a community of adorably weird underground creatures and a human who needs a family and you get The Boxtrolls, an animated film made by the creators of previous hits like ParaNorman and Coraline.

A new teaser trailer for The Boxtrolls is here and it gives us a look at the adorable quirkiness of the Boxtrolls, doing things like eating bugs and running into poles. This trailer forgoes dialogue in favor of a rendition of “(You’re So Square) Baby I Don’t Care,” a song made famous by Elvis Presley and incredibly appropriate for the box-housed trolls.

The Boxtrolls features the voices of stars like Toni Collette, Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Tracy Morgan, and Simon Pegg, and hits theaters September 26. Check out the trailer below: READ FULL STORY

'Frozen' hits $1 billion mark at worldwide box office

Last night, Frozen snagged two Oscars: One for best original song for “Let It Go,” and the other for best animated feature. Oh, and it also crossed the $1 billion mark for worldwide box office.

Six other Walt Disney Studios films have also hit the $1 billion mark, including The Avengers and Toy Story 3. So far, Frozen has earned an estimated $388.8 million domestically and $611.5 million internationally since its November 27, 2013 domestic release — and it still has one more international territory to go, debuting in Japan March 14.

“With Frozen, we knew we had something truly special on our hands, and it has connected with fans and filmgoers around the world in a way we only dreamed was possible,” said Alan Horn, chairman at Walt Disney Studios, in a statement.

The animated film is still in theaters and will come out on DVD March 18.

If you’ve seen Frozen, you’ve seen the cutting-edge/old-fashioned Mickey Mouse short Get a Horse! (And given Frozen’s box office at this point, we’re guessing that means everybody.)

But even if you’ve already watched the nuvo-retro Mickey movie, which combines an old-school 1930s hand-drawn style with state-of-the-art digital animation and 3-D effects, you probably haven’t seen everything the Oscar-nominated short has to offer.

EW has an exclusive clip of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film – when things go from flat to flat-out crazy. Director Lauren MacMullan walked us through all the little details, hidden and otherwise.

So here they are, the video and secrets of Get a Horse! READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'The Lego Movie' beats 'About Last Night' with awesome $48 million

While The Lego Movie and About Last Night may have been neck-and-neck at the box office on Valentine’s Day, it was the former which ultimately won the weekend with awesome ease. In all, The Lego Movie constructed an estimated total of $48.81 million for the three-day period, making for a cumulative total of $129.11 million in its second week of release. About Last Night earned $13 million on Friday, just a smidge less than The Lego Movie, and received an A- cinemascore. But the Kevin Hart-starring romantic comedy could not compete with Lego once love began to disappear from the air, ultimately earning an impressive but not Lego impressive $27 million over the three-day frame.

Box office report: 'The Lego Movie' stacks up $69.1 million for 'awesome' debut, 'Monuments Men' steals second with $22.7 million

Everything is awesome for the team behind The Lego Movie (Cinema Score: A). The 3D animated extravaganza is estimated to have earned a spectacular $69.11 million this weekend — the biggest opening of the still young year, and the second largest February opening ever (the top spot belongs to 2004’s Passion of the Christ). The Phil Lord and Christopher Miller movie blew past studio and analyst predictions, which had the pic in the $40 to $55 million range. Playing in 3,775 theaters, most of which were in 3D, Lego scored an incredible $18,307 per location average, and, including overseas profits ($18.1 million from 34 territories), The Lego Movie has already stacked up $87.2 million.

The Lego Movie is Warner Bros.’ first animated release in three years. Village Roadshow co-financed the pic. Featuring the vocal talents of Chris Pratt as Emmet the construction worker, Will Ferrell as the evil Lord Business, Elizabeth Banks as the brilliant Wyldstyle, Liam Neeson as Bad Cop, and Will Arnett as Batman, Lego resonated with both adults and children — 60% of the audience was over 18 years old. A sequel is reportedly already in the works.

Disney to showcase new Pixar short 'Party Central' in front of 'Muppets Most Wanted' - EXCLUSIVE

As any Jim Henson fan could tell you, Muppets and monsters are an ideal match, like chocolate and peanut butter or Cookie Monster and sugary baked treats. It’s only fitting, then, that Disney is set to unveil the latest Pixar short film — a Monsters University spinoff titled Party Central — in front of Muppets Most Wanted when that movie hits theaters on March 21.

In the six-minute short, which Disney first debuted at last year’s D23 Expo, Mike and Sulley and their Oozma Kappa frat brothers try to throw a monster blowout party but are dismayed to find that no one is showing up. Fortunately, they have some extra inter-dimensional doors handy, which they put to creative use (we won’t spoil how here) to get the party rocking.

Screen Actors Guild noms: '12 Years a Slave' leads while 'The Butler' surprises -- BREAKING

12-Years-a-Slave.jpg

Good news for 12 Years a Slave and The Butler … not so good for The Wolf of Wall Street.

The harrowing drama about a free black man who is kidnapped and sold into bondage on a Southern plantation had a leading four nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this morning: best ensemble, lead actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor, and supporting bids for Michael Fassbender and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o.

Among the notable snubs were Robert Redford, the lone actor in the survival saga All Is Lost, and The Wolf of Wall Street, which got zero nominations.

The big surprise was The Butler, the blockbuster drama about a black man who spends a lifetime working in the White House under eight presidents. It hasn’t been present in many of the critics awards this season, but came on strong with three nods from the actors union: best ensemble, lead actor for Forest Whitaker, and supporting actress for Oprah Winfrey.

Also with three nominations each, including best ensemble: August: Osage County and Dallas Buyers Club.

Contenders for the SAG Awards were announced in both film and television fields this morning. The guild awards are closely watched as an Oscar bellwether since actors are the single largest voting bloc within the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

A nod here can cement an actor’s chances, while a snub can sometimes reveal a fatal lack of momentum. There’s no Best Picture prize, but the Screen Actors Guild’s Best Ensemble award is typically seen as a key stepping stone in that race for that Oscar. READ FULL STORY
