The Grinch Teaser Trailer Takes the Mean One to the Winter Olympics

Universal Pictures and Illumination have unveiled a new preview for The Grinch, and while it may not showcase any actual footage from the movie, it offers our first look at the title character in action, so to speak. Unfortunately, The Grinch doesn't speak at all in this brief preview, so we don't get to hear the new voice, provided by Benedict Cumberbatch. However, this Olympic-themed preview may hint that the first trailer is just around the corner.

This preview features the Grinch and his dog Max settling in to watch the Winter Olympics, shutting the blinds when a noisy bird tries to watch the festivities with them. Upon seeing one of the Olympic figure skaters, The Grinch falls into a dream sequence where he's putting on a figure skating show of his own in his custom green suit, with the crowd cheering his every move. Of course, it's only a daydream,

Meet the Voice Behind 'Zootopia's' Sloth Character Flash

  • CineMovie
Raymond S. Persi voices the character of Flash in Disney's Zootopia, the fastest sloth in the Dmv (Department of Mammal Vehicles), but he's no ordinary voice actor. Persi is actually a story artist for Walt Disney Animation Studios and an Emmy Award-winning director (for the 2006 "Simpsons" Episode: "The Seemingly Neverending Story"), and fell into the role by accident. CineMovie sat down with Persi to talk about voicing the slow-speaking character, and how he was recruited for the role.

Zootopia Available on Blu-ray June 7th

“I am just a dumb bunny, but, we are good at multiplying!”

When I reviewed Zootopia here at We Are Movie Geeks, I wrote”, the beautifully designed, brightly-hued Zootopia is breezier and bouncier than most. The animation work is dazzling, lovingly detailed without being overdone. I felt like I could reach out and pet these furry critters, especially in eye-popping 3D.” (read all of my review Here)

Now you can own Zootopia on Blu-ray thanks to Walt Disney Animation Studios!

Zootopia has broken records worldwide earning more than $900 million at the global box office to date. The best reviewed movie of 2016, critics and audiences around the world have fallen in love with the wonderfully innovative animal metropolis of Zootopia and the comedic chemistry of rookie rabbit officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman). It’s been called one of the best buddy cop comedies in years!

Zootopia Now Stands As Second Largest Original Movie In History

Featuring a cracking voice cast, lush animation and an entertaining story at its heart, Zootopia not only proved to be one of this year’s early crowd-pleasers, it also soared close to $1 billion at the international box office.

That’s an impressive tally as is, but what really fired Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s animation into the history books was the fact that Zootopia stands as a successful movie, yes, but also an original one. In a report by Forbes, the outlet reveals that Howard and Moore’s adventure is now second only to James Cameron’s Avatar in Hollywood’s ranking of highest-grossing original movies; that is, feature films “not based on a television show, a comic book, a novel, or a stage play.”

This, coupled with the barnstorming success of Captain America: Civil War has ensured Disney’s box office haul for the year is nearing $4 billion in total.

Zootopia Parody Posters Riff On This Year’s Oscars Nominees

Bridge of Sloths, Steve Paws, Mad Yax: Furry Road; In today’s latest round of parody posters for Zootopia, Disney’s anticipated animation presents this year’s Oscar contenders with a stylish twist.

Designed as a one-two punch to channel the excitement of this weekend’s 88th Academy Awards and, of course, the actual release of Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s feature on March 4, the gallery of images are a wonderful and timely riff on those films considered to represent cinema’s purple patch through 2015 and early 2016.

As for Zootopia, if the end product proves just as good as the House of Mouse’s marketing campaign, then we’re in for a treat. Centering on Ginnifer Goodwin’s Judy Hopps and Jason Bateman’s cunning scam artist Nick Wild, the animated romp is rooted in bright and colorful mammal metropolis completely devoid of humans.

Among the star-studded voice cast are Octavia Spencer,

Judy Hopps Is On The Chase In Latest Clips For Disney’s Zootopia

In little under a month’s time, Disney will invite moviegoers into an entirely new and modernised animal kingdom for Zootopia, and Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s feature is bursting at the seems with personality.

Case in point: Cheetah Officer Clawhauser, who reports for duty in one of two new clips today, while the second has Ginnifer Goodwin’s Judy Hopps tower over Little Rodentia.

As a matter of fact, Goodwin’s lawful bunny is one of the two core characters anchoring Disney’s animation, partnering with Jason Bateman’s cunning scam artist Nick Wild to prove her worth to the local precinct. Governed by Idris Elba’s no-nonsense Chief Bogo, the police force of Zootopia is comprised of animals of all shapes and sizes – elephants included – and it’s a cast we can hardly wait to learn more about in a few weeks’ time.

New Zootopia Clip Has Idris Elba Address The Elephant In The Room

In the build up to its March debut, Disney Animation has been adopting a less-is-more approach with Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s Zootopia - a strategy exemplified by last month’s sloth-centric trailer lingering on a single scene to brilliant effect.

That’s not something you see too often, either, with movie trailers hailing from all genres often favoring a rat-a-tat pace that leaves the viewer teetering on the edge of sensory overload. But today, the House of Mouse continues to hit all the right notes in anticipation of Zootopia‘s arrival, with a new clip that features Idris Elba’s no-nonsense Chief Bogo addressing the literal elephant in the room.

Taking the odd-couple-solves-crime formula and situating it in a lush anthropomorphic kingdom, Disney’s new IP largely centers on the dynamic between Jason Bateman’s Nick Wild and Ginnifer Goodwin’s officer Judy Hopps. It’s the latter

Disney Has Released a Second Full Trailer For Zootopia

We've got a new trailer for Disney's latest animated adventure, Zootopia, for you to watch. It doesn't seem like there's a lot of hype building for the film, but I think it looks like it will be a lot of fun. This latest trailer gives us a much better sense of what the story will be and introduces us to a lot of new characters. The first trailer basically just showed us a clip of the film featuring the two main characters trying to obtain information from the Dmv, which was being run by a bunch of slow moving sloths.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew,

Wait, a Disney movie that doesn't involve "Star Wars," Marvel, Pixar, a sequel, or remake? Yes, original films still happen at the mouse house from time to time, and the latest is "Zootopia."

Latest Zootopia Posters Riff On Star Wars, Jurassic World And More

From Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Jurassic World, Fifty Shades of Grey to Alex Garland’s really rather brilliant Ex Machina, the latest batch of posters for Disney’s Zootopia riff on some of the biggest blockbuster releases of 2015 – and the results are wonderful.

It’s fair to say that movie posters have become increasingly unremarkable, with seemingly every action movie adhering to the Marvel-esque knack for superimposing every core character onto a one-sheet. Outside of that, there’s the standard ‘back to camera’ hero shot, placing the main hero or heroine front and center for a brooding picture, so it’s little wonder why something like Fox’s marketing campaign for Deadpool attracts attention for flying in the face of convention.

For Zootopia, though, Disney is gunning to strike while the iron is hot with a slew of meme-worthy posters. And though they don’t necessarily reveal much

Wonderfully Hilarious Full Trailer For Disney's Zootopia

Disney has released the first full trailer for their upcoming animated adventure, Zootopia. I haven't seen a lot of hype surrounding this movie since it was first announced, but maybe this full-length trailer will change that. I've already seen some of this footage because they screened some stuff at D23 earlier this year, and I've enjoyed everything that I've seen from this movie so far. This is a great trailer that shows you some of the funny humor that the movie will include, and I really think Disney fans are going to get a kick out of it. The sloth character that you'll be introduced to in this trailer is freakin' hysterical. It's such a funny concept for a character.

Disney's 'Zootopia' Trailer #2 Takes Hopps and Wilde to the Dmv

Disney's 'Zootopia' Trailer #2 Takes Hopps and Wilde to the Dmv
Last week, Walt Disney Animation Studios unveiled a new poster for Zootopia, which featured both of the main characters, rookie cop Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and con artist Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman). Today, the studio has released a new trailer, which showcases one of the stumbling blocks Judy runs into on her latest case: the Department of Mammal Vehicles (Dmv), which is run entirely by sloths. Anyone who has spent time at the human Dmv can relate to the agonizingly slow pace of this facility, as Nick introduces Judy to the "fastest" sloth at the Dmv, Flash (voiced by Raymond S. Persi).

Sloths Rule The Roost In Disney’s First Trailer For Zootopia

Arriving on the furry heels of last week’s teaser poster is the first full-length trailer for Disney’s upcoming animation, Zootopia, offering our first look at the titular urban landscape in motion.

For those unfamiliar with the general set up of the film, Zootopia imagines a world completely devoid of humanity, allowing the animal kingdom to rise up and build their own mega-cities. From towering rhinos to the bouncing bunny rabbits, Disney’s anthropomorphic kingdom is simply thriving with life, though today’s clip introduces us to the more laid-back section of society.

Shedding light on the core dynamic between Jason Bateman’s Nick Wild and Ginnifer Goodwin’s officer Judy Hopps, the footage culminates in a segment that involves the pair engaging in a conversation – or at the very least trying to – with Dash, a sloth that is about as slow with admin duties as one would expect.
