Exclusive Interview – How to Train Your Dragon 3 producer Brad Lewis talks about the “unusual” story of F. Murray Abraham’s casting, Gerard Butler and more

The following is a conversation that took place between Flickering Myth writer Justin Cook and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World producer Brad Lewis at New York Comic-Con…

If the New York Comic Con crowd’s reaction to the How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World footage screened during the film’s panel is any indication, Universal has another really special installment of the DreamWorks Animation franchise on its hands. After the panel, Flickering Myth talked to two men whose vision and creativity made the dynamic, adorable and visually arresting footage screened at the Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater a reality.

The first of which is producer Brad Lewis, who, although is a newcomer to the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, was well within his wheelhouse based on his prior work. Lewis worked at Pixar for about a decade, producing Brad Bird’s Ratatouille and

‘Night School’ Is Head of the Box Office Class With $28 Million Opening

  • The Wrap
A $28 million opening weekend may not seem like a big achievement at the box office, but for a comedy like Universal’s “Night School,” it’s definitely a win. At a time when only a precious few comedies have found success at the box office, “Night School” has posted the best opening for the genre this year, beating the $20.6 million start for fellow Universal release “Blockers.”

Released on 3,091 screens, the Kevin Hart/Tiffany Haddish film is only a few paces behind the $31 million opening for “Girls Trip,” the previous collaboration between Haddish, director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer. With a budget of $29 million and a CinemaScore grade of A-, the film is in position to turn a solid profit. Next week it will face steep competition in the form of Sony’s Marvel film “Venom” and Warner Bros.’ awards contender “A Star Is Born.”

'Night School' and 'Smallfoot' Poised to Top the Weekend Box Office

'Night School' and 'Smallfoot' Poised to Top the Weekend Box Office
Last weekend ended up being the worst overall weekend of the year so far with all films on Mojo's weekend chart totaling a mere $91.8 million with the top twelve grossing just over $81 million. This weekend, however, should find the top twelve alone combining to bring in over $100 million as the month is shaping up to be the second highest grossing September ever, just behind last year's record performance for the month. A pair of newcomers are expected to finish #1 and #2 for the weekend, beginning with Universal's comedy Night School followed by the Warner Bros. animated title Smallfoot. Additional new releases include Lionsgate's release of the CBS horror-thriller Hell Fest and Pinnacle Peak's Little Women opening in a moderate number of locations. Set to top the weekend box office is Universal's comedy Night School starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. The film is set to debut in just over

Can the Team Behind ‘Girls Trip’ Land Another Box Office Hit With ‘Night School’?

Can the Team Behind ‘Girls Trip’ Land Another Box Office Hit With ‘Night School’?
A year after finding big box office success with “Girls Trip,” Tiffany Haddish, director Malcolm D. Lee, and producer Will Packer are teaming up with Kevin Hart for “Night School,” another comedy that Universal hopes will see long-lasting success thanks to the star power of its two leads.

Last year, “Girls Trip” launched Haddish into mainstream stardom and earned $140 million worldwide against a $19 million budget, becoming yet another flagbearer for Hollywood’s ongoing diversity push. “Night School,” which is slightly more expensive with a $29 million budget after tax incentives, is projected by Universal for an opening around $25 million from 2,900 screens, while independent trackers expect the film to match the $31 million start earned by “Girls Trip.”

‘Smallfoot’ Film Review: Fun Ideas Get Buried Under Avalanche of Mediocrity

‘Smallfoot’ Film Review: Fun Ideas Get Buried Under Avalanche of Mediocrity
Producers John Requa and Glenn Ficarra have generally kept a wide berth between their kid-friendly projects and their more adult material. The best parts of “Smallfoot” see them finding a middle ground, espousing plot points and messaging that you don’t usually find in family fare.

Lurking within this animated tale of yetis and humans are such forward-thinking notions as, “Question everything, including religion,” “Governments use public safety as an excuse for misleading the populace when they really just want to control people,” and “Tribalism benefits people in power more than the communities they claim to want to protect.”

Heady stuff for a mainstream cartoon, but unfortunately “Smallfoot” can’t bear the weight of its big ideas, saddled as it is with fairly mediocre animation, mostly forgettable songs and a resolutely by-the-numbers screenplay by director Karey Kirkpatrick (“Over the Hedge”) and Clare Sera, adapting Sergio Pablos’ book “Yeti Tracks.”

Film Review: ‘Smallfoot’

  • Variety
The best thing about the otherwise-abominable “Smallfoot” is the concept: A community of creatures feared by humans — in this case, yetis with giant, bendy bodies and silky CG hair — consider people to be just as frightening, with both sides going far out of their way to avoid the species they don’t understand. That’s a solid idea now, and that was a solid idea when the folks at Pixar came up with it 24 years ago. The problem is, “Smallfoot” is not a Pixar movie. It’s the latest offering from Warner Animation Group, which essentially takes the hook for “Monsters Inc.” (hatched way back in 1994) and turns it into a heavy-handed civics lesson.

According to the credits, “Smallfoot” is based on a book called “Yeti Tracks” by Sergio Pablos, the brain behind “Despicable Me,” but there is no trace of the book’s existence online. In fact, it’s

Dora the Explorer Live-Action Movie Is Happening with Producer Michael Bay

Dora the Explorer Live-Action Movie Is Happening with Producer Michael Bay
After languishing in development for the past two years, Paramount is finally moving forward with its Dora the Explorer adaptation, bringing on writer Nick Stoller to write the script. This Dora the Explorer live-action movie was first put into development exactly two years ago, when the studio brought on Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) to write the screenplay. There has been no movement on the project since then, but now it seems that the studio is moving forward with a new writer working on the script, and the studio eyeing a 2019 release date, with Michael Bay producing alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

The project will be developed under the new Paramount Players division of the studio, which is devoted to producing films based on properties that fall under the banner of Paramount's parent corporation, Viacom, which include Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central and Bet. Brian Robbins,

Captain Underpants: a superhero who needs your help

Simon Brew Aug 23, 2017

One of the best family movies in ages is struggling at the box office. We take a look...

Trawling through the box office totals for 2017’s family movie releases is not the cheeriest of jobs. For me, the two most entertaining and funniest have been The Lego Batman Movie and Captain Underpants. Both have the best written gags I’ve enjoyed at the cinema all year, and both have found their box office slightly depressed.

The Lego Batman Movie, for all the noise it rightly made during its release period, actually recorded box office totals a good deal less than most of us would have expected a) for a Lego movie, and b) for a Batman movie. Still, Warner Bros’ marketing machine is busy selling DVDs right now to right that wrong.

But the underperformance of Captain Underpants is borderline criminal. Based on the excellent series of children’s books,

10 films to beat the 2017 franchise fatigue

Mark Harrison Aug 1, 2017

Bored with massive films and special effects? Then here are 10 smaller movies well worth your consideration...

It's that time of year when we usually give you a list of films playing in cinemas during August, as the summer blockbuster season winds down, that will help cleanse your palate after all the tentpoles and sequels that have proliferated throughout the year so far. But to be honest, this summer has been so good to us, we're more refreshed than usual.

Even aside from originals like Edgar Wright's Baby Driver and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, this year's blockbusters have been of an unusually high standard. Wonder Woman pulled the Dceu out of its critical nosedive, War For The Planet Of The Apes is a gorgeous and emotional conclusion to the reboot trilogy, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming proved that Marvel's ever expanding continuity is still going strong.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie review

Captain Underpants is the family movie of the summer. Here's our review...

Unless you have fond memories of Dav Pilkey's series of books, it's entirely possible that Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie has tra-la-laaa'd its way into cinemas under your radar. Hopefully, you'll seek it out, because this is the funniest and most creative film to come out of DreamWorks Animation in a long time.

The imaginations fuelling the story are fourth-grade children George and Harold (voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch), who break up the monotony of their life at the unusually austere Jerome Horwitz Elementary School by drawing comics, playing pranks and generally trying to make each other laugh.

Their principal, Mr. Krupp (Ed Helms) hates them for it and on the brink of banishing them to separate classes, an unexpectedly powerful cereal box gift enables the boys to hypnotise him. He comes to believe

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Review

There’s no question that – despite the timeless Marvel vs. DC debate (or perhaps because of it?) – superhero cinema is here to stay for a long time. The recent releases of such critically acclaimed efforts as Logan and this week’s Wonder Woman, however, underscore the genre’s need to explore some fresh approaches to comic book storytelling, lest the million think pieces heralding the cinematic fall of superheroes come to fruition. So, while adults looking to satisfy their bloodlust can see Hugh Jackman shredding off limbs in the aforementioned latest X-Men film, children can root for a decidedly less self-serious hero in Dreamworks’ latest release, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

Based on the 12-book series by author Dav Pilkey, the film follows elementary school students George (Kevin Hart) and Harold (Thomas Middleditch), who stumble upon the perfect way to keep their school’s notorious Principal Krupp (Ed Helms
