Po is back and ready to protect China’s innocent civilians, but his ambitions become his downfall in the upcoming Netflix DreamWorks series. Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight. For those who don’t know, Po (Jack Black) is the main character of DreamWorks kung fu panda film franchise.

Po’s journey begins by dreaming of becoming a kung fu warrior to become The Dragon Warrior and fight alongside the Furious Five (Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Monkey (Jackie Chan), Viper (Lucy Liu), Crane (David Cross ) and Mantis. (Seth Rogen) Along the way, he learns kung fu from the teachings of Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) and learns to embrace and own his own skills.

The movies had their fair share of humor, pretty brutal villains (Ian McShane and Gary Oldman were perfect for the roles), heartbreaking moments, and taught great morals that still hold true today. Since kung fu panda Arriving in theaters in 2008, the story has continued to unfold until now, it seems like a TV series was in order.

Original fans (like me) can continue to hug the panda and “feel the thunder” as new ones are introduced to who are sure to be one of their favorite DreamWorks characters. The official Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight The trailer is out and does not fail to tell viewers what the series is about.

Will Po be able to keep his Dragon Master title in the upcoming Netflix DreamWorks series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight?

Jack Black returns to voice Po, who is now The Dragon Master, but fails to stop two evil weasels from stealing one of the four powerful weapons. Naturally, the villagers want his title revoked.

But Po may be able to save himself and his title when a mysterious Wandering Blade warrior (Rita Ora) arrives. She searches for The Dragon Master and, much like the theme of the other films, didn’t expect him to be a giant panda.

Together they must stop the weasels from getting the weapons and destroying the world. Although the Furious Five are absent from the trailer, it will be interesting to see how well Wandering Blade fits into the long-established game. kung fu panda world.

Will be Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight to be the first of many kung fu panda– thematic programs broadcast on Netflix? Will this lead to another kung fu panda film?

Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight hits Netflix on July 14.

Along with his brother’s friends, Hiro and Baymax set out to save their town.

How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

Available on Amazon Prime Video


How to train your dragon was adapted from the first book in the beloved children’s book series of the same name. The fantasy film centers on Hiccup, a Norse teenager who builds an unbreakable bond with a rare dragon, despite the fact that his people are believed to hunt dragons.


Although there may not be dragons in Light year, there are robots that Buzz bonds with the same way Hiccup bonds with Toothless. Both movies also feature the same kind of life-or-death adventure that’s perfect for family audiences.

Kung Fu Panda (2008)

Available on Amazon Prime Video


kung fu panda is one of Dreamworks‘ best animated films of all time. The first film in the franchise centers on Po, a clumsy panda, who is selected to fulfill an ancient prophecy when his village is attacked. This proves problematic, however, as Po is not very good at kung fu and needs to be trained before time runs out.

As Light year, Lance and Walter find themselves in an unusual and somewhat dangerous situation early in their films. Both movies offer a kind of fun edge-of-your-seat action-adventure that’s perfect for audiences of all ages.

Toy Story (1995)

Woody and Buzz on Andy's bed in Toy Story

To make matters worse, Buzz thinks he’s a real space ranger, which adds tension between the other toys in Andy’s room.

After watching the origin stories of the real Buzz Lightyear, it makes sense to connect with the movie that made everyone fall in love with the arrogant yet lovable space guard.

Toy Story 2 (1999)

Available on Disney+


Jessie hugging Buzz in Toy Story 2

Four years after the success of toy story, Pixar Animation Studios released its very first sequel when toy story 2 has been freed.

After having watched Light year it makes sense for Buzz fans to revisit the franchise that started it all for him from start to finish. toy story 4 is also fun because it shows Buzz going through another existential crisis over his toy status.

He served as chairman of Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, for 23 years after his father’s death. Walmart posted estimated revenue of $582.8 billion in the fiscal year ending Jan. 31. The Walton Group would have been the favorite of other NFL owners to land the Denver Broncos.

Greg Penner, 52, was named president of Walmart in 2015 and is a venture capitalist. A graduate of Georgetown and Stanford, he is the husband of Walton’s sister, Carrie Walton Penner. She is also involved in the ownership group.

In addition to his work with Walmart, Penner is the founder of a Northern California investment firm called Madrone Capital Partners. He currently sits on the board of Baidu, eHarmony, Hyatt Hotels and Teach for America.

The richest owners in the NFL in 2022: Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft follow Jody Allen of the Seattle Seahawks

As noted above, Mellody Hobson’s inclusion in the Denver Broncos’ likely new ownership group came as something of a surprise. The 53-year-old was previously president of Dreamworks Animation prior to her roles at Ariel Investments and Starbucks.

Married to legendary filmmaker George Lucas, she became the first black woman to serve as president of an S&P 500 company when she took over that role at Starbucks in December 2020. Hobson is reportedly has a net worth of approximately $16.8 billion.

“We are delighted to announce that Mellody Hobson, co-CEO of Ariel Investments, has agreed to join our ownership group. Beyond his role at Ariel, Mellody is an influential leader in business and civic organizations at across the country.

The Denver Broncos’ likely new ownership group said in a statement

This sale will become official if there are 24 positive votes among NFL owners later this summer. There shouldn’t be any problems on that front.

The previous record sale for an NFL team was $2.3 billion when David Tepper bought the Carolina Panthers in 2018.

The New York Mets sold for a North American sports franchise record $2.475 billion to Steve Cohen in 2020.

‘Strange World’ Trailer Promises Return to Normal for Disney Animation https://pixwoll.com/strange-world-trailer-promises-return-to-normal-for-disney-animation/ Mon, 06 Jun 2022 15:00:29 +0000 https://pixwoll.com/strange-world-trailer-promises-return-to-normal-for-disney-animation/ Ahead of Pixar Light yearWalt Disney has just dropped a poster and a trailer for this month of November strange world.

Ahead of Pixar Light yearWalt Disney has just dropped a poster and a trailer for this month of November strange world. Disney’s press release doesn’t say “only in theaters” or even the word “theatres,” or “Disney+.” At the time, an exclusive theatrical window was automatically presumed. This presumption partly explains how and why Scarlett Johansson ended up suing Disney for the loss of specific box office profits after Black Widow got a movie/Disney+ Premier Access hybrid release.

Still, given that the studio (speculation alert) likely paid a large chunk of Disney+ gross profits to Johansson when settling this case and considering that similar lawsuits were partially/likely avoided by overpaying Emma Stone for a theoretical Cruel 2 and/or Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for a theoretical course Jungle Cruise 2, the whole cinemas/Disney+ release model may already be a notion in the past tense. But again, that’s 104% speculation.

Anyway, the original animated film, which opens (presumably in theaters) on November 23, stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Searcher Clade, an aptly named son of a legendary explorer. Directed by Don Hall (Big Hero 6 and Raya and the last dragon) and co-directed by Qui Nguyen who co-wrote Raya), strange world is sold (understandably) on its borderline hallucinogenic visuals. I imagine this teaser will play great on an IMAX or Dolby screen, especially sitting just a little too close to the screen.

The overall setup of the Exploratory Adventure bears a slight resemblance to that of Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise Atlantis: The Lost Empirea financial whiff ($186 million on a $120 million budget while DreamWorks Shrek was changing the landscape) that A) is one of many movies that ended up looking somewhat Avatar and B) was a PG-rated violent animated film back when such a thing was damn unique. Speaking of movies that looked like Avatar (not only The battle for Terra), the fantasy world brought back fond memories of dragon huntersa forgotten animated gem from 2008 that’s worth your time if you want it.

Speaking of Avatar, this “Journey to a Fantasy World Beyond Your Imagination” movie will debut in theaters just under a month before Avatar: The Way of the Water, which means Disney has returned to its pre-Covid release model. You have a big MCU movie (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) in early November, a major Thanksgiving animated film and a spectacular end-of-the-year fantasy adventure the weekend before the Christmas holidays.

Additionally, Enlightenment Sing 2 surpassed $400 million and even DreamWorks The villains earned $220 million and counts both films exist simultaneously on PVOD for most of their theatrical releases. Now it’s up to Disney to prove they can still top their competition in terms of theatrical animation. Encanto barely cracked $250 million and turn red skipped theaters, so now the burden of proof has shifted from Disney’s competitors to Disney itself. your move, Light year.

Poltergeist at 40: The success of Spielberg’s haunted house brought horror home | Horror films https://pixwoll.com/poltergeist-at-40-the-success-of-spielbergs-haunted-house-brought-horror-home-horror-films/ Sat, 04 Jun 2022 06:23:00 +0000 https://pixwoll.com/poltergeist-at-40-the-success-of-spielbergs-haunted-house-brought-horror-home-horror-films/ In the summer of 1982, Steven Spielberg released two films in consecutive weeks, Poltergeist and ET the Extra Terrestrial, which now seem to be mirror images of each other.

In the summer of 1982, Steven Spielberg released two films in consecutive weeks, Poltergeist and ET the Extra Terrestrial, which now seem to be mirror images of each other. Both are about suburban enclaves visited by supernatural phenomena – one a haunting, the other a close encounter of the third kind – and both are ultimately storytelling affirmations of the American family, which is reinforced by the Crisis. The Californian suburbs were a playground for Spielberg, who grew up there, and these films were like new subdivisions in his personal colonization of Hollywood.

The nature of Spielberg’s involvement in Poltergeist has been controversial from the start. He’s credited as co-producer and co-writer on the film, which is based on his original story, but the director is the late Tobe Hooper, who was either a primary creative force or a looker on his own set, depending on who is. being requested. At a minimum, the two had a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration that resulted in a quintessentially Spielbergian horror flick, but with a hint of the malevolence of Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the spring-loaded shocks of his earlier film, the underrated slasher. from 1981 The Funhouse. It’s as if Spielberg wanted to scare audiences while maintaining his cuddly veneer, and Hooper was part of his alibi.

He also claimed, after Jaws, that PG-rated horror films had summer blockbuster potential, though 40 years later it’s remarkable that few have tried to emulate his success. (The 1999 Abysmal remake of The Haunting, from Spielberg’s DreamWorks Pictures, seems to have killed the idea forever.) Although The Amityville Horror was a hit in 1979, the slasher trend was in full swing by 1982, which allowed Poltergeist to stake a solitary claim to the haunted house movie, a subgenre that has always demanded more bumps and creaks than active bleeds. Even when the ghosts go haywire in the final act, it feels as wholesome as a Halloween wagon ride.

In the brilliant opening sequence, Poltergeist strikes at the heart of every suburban home: the television. As the man of the house, Steven Freeling (Craig T Nelson) dozes in his recliner, a TV channel ends for the night with The Star-Spangled Banner and the ghostly static that will carry it on until the next morning. The family dog ​​fetches scraps upstairs, which is a neat way to introduce the other characters: Steven’s wife, Diane (JoBeth Williams) and their three children – 16-year-old Dana (Dominique Dunne), Robbie (Oliver Robins), and finally Carol Anne (Heather O’Rourke), an adorable six-year-old girl who wakes up and walks into the living room. The static speaks to him as the family watches. She calls her new friends “TV people”.

The image of Carol Anne sitting cross-handed against the snowy TV, announcing “They’re here” in her eerie, singsong voice, was such a powerful hook that it served as a poster and slogan. But in Poltergeist, it’s part of an effective strategy to step back into a horror movie through Spielberg’s wonder, as it’s not immediately clear that ‘they’ aren’t the friendly beings of Close Encounters. or and. A dead canary and bent silverware are signs of trouble, but when Diane discovers the kitchen chairs can move on their own, she’s thrilled. This could be a great party trick.

However, when Carol Anne is sucked into the bedroom closet, the film shifts gears and the Freelings are desperate to save her from the walls of the house, where her voice can still be heard from a distance. Is she walking towards the light or away from the light? Three local college parapsychologists are distraught, but they get help from Tangina (Zelda Rubinstein), a spirit medium who assures Diane that her daughter is alive and home. At this point, Carol Anne’s bedroom is a weightless phantom zone, and a strange spectral birth canal has opened up between her closet and the living room ceiling. The mother will have to give birth to her child again, only covered in ectoplasm rather than amniotic fluid.

Williams is the glue that holds Poltergeist together – funny, sexy and assertive, with Diane far more active than her husband in putting herself in harm’s way. (A bedroom scene where she rolls a joint while he reads a biography of Ronald Reagan is a short story in itself.) When Tangina tells him, “I couldn’t do anything without your faith in this world and your love for children,” Williams shows motherly conviction in support. She and ET single mom Dee Wallace are cut from the same cloth. Their children can always count on them.

At the time, Poltergeist was a high-end showcase for Industrial Light & Magic, the effects house founded by George Lucas that liberates everything here from subtle streaks of white to full-screen spectra that suggest 3D without the red cellophane and blue glasses. Spielberg and Hooper round out the visual effects with the old-school analogue of a creepy clown doll, a malevolent leafless tree, and skeleton-filled coffins springing from the ground. Poltergeist was primarily designed as a scare machine, and it updates the classic haunted house movie without losing its mainstream appeal.

The revelation that the Freelings’ home and neighborhood were built on the dead – only the headstones were moved, not the bodies – suggests a darker message about American expansion, with families gobbling up land that was not theirs never. It also syncs with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which is also about strangers being punished for trespassing on hostile terrain. Spielberg has often been optimistic about the magic and possibility of suburban life, but Poltergeist sees it from the other side of the lens.
