Joanna Lumley And Brian Blessed Back New Campaign To End The Fur Trade

“A Lifetime” is a new film launched this week by Animal Defenders International (Adi) about the brutal short lives of two foxes, brothers Borys and Eryk, born and killed on a Polish fur farm.

Adi placed hidden cameras on the farm to capture this rare insight into an industry that kills more than 100 million animals a year.

Watch the film here.

Joanna Lumley and Brian Blessed are backing Adi’s campaign to end the fur trade.

Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer said: “Over 100 million animals die for their fur every year. Our film shows the lives of these intelligent, feeling individuals and the cruelty they suffer when treated like a product. Just because they are not like us. Playful fox cubs Borys and Eryk, grow up in a small cage and die a terrifying and painful death for vanity and trinkets. This is the real cost of fur – when you buy fur,

First Look at Woody Woodpecker Movie

First Look at Woody Woodpecker Movie
According to IMDb, Woody Woodpecker is coming to theaters in 2017 in his first ever movie. Which is odd, since we've heard little to nothing at all about it. Today, we have a look at the annoying bird courtesy of Imp Awards. This one-sheet is for international audiences, which has us wondering if this is even going to get a proper release on America shores.

The Woody Woodpecker movie is taking on an environmentally conscious theme, and will tackle social issues with a deft hand at the comedy fans have come to know and love. The plot finds the hyperactive red-head entering a turf war with a big city lawyer who wants to tear down his home. This is all in an effort to build a house to flip. From the poster, we'd assume that this is a fully animated CGI movie. But we'd be wrong, as it's listed as being

Woody Woodpecker movie: latest trailer

Brendon Connelly Mar 13, 2017

A new international trailer lands for the Woody Woodpecker movie...

Update: It's been a while, but Woody Woodpecker completists, fear no more. A new international trailer for the upcoming movie has been released. And you can view it right here...

You are very welcome.

Previously (December 2016)

Thanks to Universal's Brazillian wing (Wing! get it? Like a bird's wing!) here is the first trailer for the live-action Woody Woodpecker movie. In the sense, that is, that the movie is live-action, because the Woodpecker most definitely is not.

The film's director is Alex Zamm, previously culpable for Jingle All the Way 2, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, Inspector Gadget 2... You know what? That's a lot of number twos.

Zamm did direct some episodes of the Upright Citizen's Brigade TV show and he does have Timothy Omundensen here - the bearded man getting gunged, previously popular in Psych and Gallivant.

Jake And The Neverland Pirates: Battle For The Book DVD Review

Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Battle for the Book is one of the more intriguing efforts from the children’s show. It’s a solid enough Disney vehicle in general, and one that the kids love, but the story here incorporates Wendy, John, and Michael in a new adventure that is not only a nice homage to the original story/film, but also plays with the animation in a way that is admittedly lost on the target audience, but is a lot of fun.

Hook learns about Wendy’s book of stories, from which she reads to her brothers about all of Hook’s failures, and he decides he had better steal it to keep the stories from spreading.

It turns out there’s something magical about the book of stories, and the general connection to Neverland, and if the book gets destroyed, everyone will forget everything that happened.

Jingle All the Way 2 is happening with Larry the Cable Guy

Jingle All the Way 2 is happening with Larry the Cable Guy
Despite being critically panned, an under-performer at the box office and the second-worst film of Arnold Schwarzenegger's '90s career (after Batman & Robin), Jingle All the Way has miraculously spawned a sequel.

There's no place for Arnie in the belated follow-up, however, as Larry the Cable Guy takes on the role of a laid-back dad struggling to get his daughter the sought-after Harrison Bear for Christmas.

A co-production between 20th Century Fox and WWE Studios, the comedy features wrestler Santino Marella in a prominent role with Brian Stepanek, Kristen Robek and Kennedi Clements in the cast.

Director Alex Zamm, whose previous credits include Tooth Fairy 2, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 and Inspector Gadget 2, is pulling a double shift as the voice of the bear.

Jingle All the Way 2 will be heading straight to DVD and Blu-ray on December 2.

Teen Wolf Season Finale Recap: Once Upon a Time in Mexico

Teen Wolf Season Finale Recap: Once Upon a Time in Mexico
Monday’s super-sized Teen Wolf season finale sent Scott’s pack on the most hectic south-of-the-border adventure since Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2.

After sifting through Scott’s dirty man-panties — thanks, Stiles! — the gang tracked his musk all the way to the Temple of Tezcatlipoca (which I totally spelled right, according to Wikipedia). There were a few bumps along the way, like Liam going bananas and almost eating Stiles, but they eventually made it in one piece.

Of course, getting to Mexico was only half the battle.

Jingle All the Way 2 is Happening - Without Arnold

  • Cinelinx
A sequel to the greatest Christmas film of all time is finally being made, without its original star.

It's Turbo Time again. But not the Turbo Time you remember. That Turbo Time is gone forever, like a a fart from Ted the Reindeer in the winter wind. Admit it: Jingle All the Way is a guilty pleasure that is best consumed in secret every holiday, like cheap boxed wine. Even now, the classic lines from that film are running through your head with a bad Austrian accent tied to it.

If you felt a great disturbance in the Force today, it was because millions of Jingle All the Way fans screamed out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. It came as news broke that Twentieth Century Fox and WWE Studios (yeah, there's a movie studio for a fake sport) were teaming up on a Jingle All the Way sequel. It

Test footage from Hong Kong Phooey and Marvin the Martian

Director Alex Zamm (Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2) has released some test footage from Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros.' proposed live-action / CG hybrid adaptations of Hong Kong Phooey and Marvin the Martian.

Last August, it was revealed that Eddie Murphy (Doctor Dolittle) had signed on to lend his voice to Hanna-Barbera's kung-fu canine in Hong Kong Phooey, although with the test footage now making its way online, it would seem that the big screen adaptation may have fallen apart, much like Zamm's earlier Marvin the Martian project, which is of course based upon Chuck Jones' classic Looney Tunes character.

In the case of Hong Kong Phooey that's probably a good thing, although the Marvin the Martian footage - which takes the form of a short entitled 'Yule Be Sorry' - certainly looked a little more promising.

Watch Test Footage From The Eddie Murphy 'Hong Kong Phooey' Project That Almost Happened

The short story goes... in August 2011, Eddie Murphy teamed up with director Alex Zamm (Tooth Fairy 2, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2) to make a live-action version of the classic cartoon Hong Kong Phooey. We must have missed the announcement of the project, because, I checked the S&A archives and didn't find any posts on it. Over a year later, the movie obviously hasn't happened; will it? I dunno. I don't think I particularly care either, especially if the video below is anything to go by. All that's left of the project is some test footage that was shot for it, and that has surfaced. Apparently Zamm released the footage online, via his Vimeo...

Shocker: Test Footage For 'Hong Kong Phooey' & 'Marvin The Martian' Movies Reveals They Would Be Terrible

So, in the midst of awards hoopla, here's a bracing reminder of Hollywood at its worst. Studio executives around town have been busy trying to put together movies centered around two cartoon properties: "Hong Kong Phooey," based on a 1970s cartoon no one remembers with Eddie Murphy set to cash a paycheck in the titular voice role, and "Marvin The Martian," a Looney Tunes character we all know and love, who someone seems to think is capable of leading his own movie. Anyway, it appears some test footage has been done and yeah, it's pretty awful. The guys over at Cartoon Brew have the background, and basically, auteur Andrew Zamm, the genius director behind "Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2," the upcoming straight-to-video "The Little Rascals" reboot, and the Carrot Top vehicle "Chairman of the Board," put together two test reels for the movies. In the first spot for 'Phooey,' we see Murphy (or more likely,

'Marvin the Martian' & 'Hong Kong Phooey': First look at two possibly dead movies

A moment of silence, please, for Alex Zamm’s Marvin the Martian and Hong Kong Phooey movies. The Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 director was attached to helm CGI-live action hybrid adaptations of both properties; Mike Myers was rumored to star in the former, while Eddie Murphy was attached to star in the latter.

Now, though, it’s looking increasingly like neither one will ever be completed. Marvin was originally supposed to hit theaters in December of 2011. Hong Kong, meanwhile, hasn’t seemed to make much progress since Murphy’s deal was announced 16 months ago.

And now that Zamm has posted

Marvin The Martian Test Footage ‘Yule Be Sorry’

Variety was reporting that Warner Bros. was developing a live action/CG feature film starring Marvin the Martian back in 2008.

Marvin was created by Chuck Jones and made his debut in a 1948 Looney Tunes cartoon Haredevil Hare along with his Martian dog, K-9 although he is unnamed in this film. The character earlier known as Commander X-2 was often set to blow up planet Earth, only to be foiled by Bugs Bunny.

Producer Steve Crystal developed the pitch as a Christmas story, with Marvin coming to Earth to destroy Christmas but being prevented from doing so when he’s trapped in a gift box.

This time Alex Zamm (Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2) who has posted test footage from in-development Hong Kong Phooey live action movie also has posted footage from a more-promising, but shelved, Marvin the Martian hybrid movie on his Vimeo page.

Watch Test Footage from Hong Kong Phooey and Marvin the Martian Movies

Last year, Warner Bros announced that it is developing a live-action "Hong Kong Phooey" film, to be directed by Alex Zamm ((Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, Tooth Fairy 2) and voiced by Eddie Murphy. It's not clear what the status of the project is, but Zamm has now unveiled test footage from the movie. Check it out below, in addition to footage from the live-action "Marvin the Martian" movie, which Zamm has been also attached to. "Hong Kong Phooey" revolves around a mild-mannered dog, named Penry, who, after stumbling into a mystic ceremony, is accidentally granted mystic powers, including the ability to walk, talk, and do kung fu. Under the tutelage of his kung fu master and with the help of his sidekick, Spot the cat, Penry dons a costume and becomes a crime fighter. "Marvin the Martian" movie was announced back in 2008 and is based on a classic "Looney Tunes" character.

Reality Dreams Come True: 'Toddlers & Tiaras' Star Eden Wood Lands 'Little Rascals' Lead

While the aggressively discomforting exploits seen within TLC's reality show “Toddlers and Tiaras” only continues to grow in popularity, it may require a moment to remember other children-centered projects that don't immediately elicit a worried reaction. However, thanks surely to the success of 'Tiaras,' one of its most prominent starlets will lead a new "The Little Rascals" remake, just shy of twenty years after Penelope Spheeris' 1994 film. THR reports Eden Wood, Aka The One That Isn't Honey Boo Boo, has signed on to portray the role of Darla in the latest “Little Rascals” film, derived originally from producer Hal Roach's '20s and '30s B&W shorts. Wood, who like Ms. Boo was featured in her own spin-off entitled “Eden's World,” will count the part as her first cinematic foray, letting Dtv director Alex Zamm (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2”) attempt to scrounge some magic from...

Universal Rebooting The Little Rascals

Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, and the rest of the Little Rascals are getting another feature film treatment. Universal Pictures is planning another film, and they've hired Alex Zamm to direct it. Does the world really need another Little Rascals movie? No. But it's happening.

Did any of you like the 1994 Little Rascals big screen adaptation? I thought it was terrible. For those of you not even familiar with this franchise, it's based on a cinematic series called Our Gang, which aired during late 1930s and ‘40s. It was adapted for television in the '50s. I will say if that make this reboot a period piece that takes place in the '30s that might be interesting, but chances are they'll just give it a modern update for audiences like they did in '94.

As for the director, Zamm, there's a reason you've never heard of him, he's made films such as.

Now They’re Just Rebooting Stuff You Don’t Care About: New ‘Little Rascals’ Gets a Director

File this one under “I’m sorry, what?” Universal already made some unexpected mint with their Three Stooges reboot from earlier this year, so why not give that same treatment to something like, oh, how about The Little Rascals? What, you don’t care about The Little Rascals? Moviehole (via Cinema Blend) reports that Universal is rebooting the classic ’30s and ’40s television show Our Gang for a new feature that will also draw inspiration from the 1994 feature film that attempted to make the cute-kids-being-tricksters trope feel more modern, with surprisingly okay results (that one also came from Uni). The film doesn’t yet have a cast, but they’ve lined up one heck of a director. The new Rascals will be helmed by one Alex Zamm, possessor of one of the most boggling resumes in current circulation. Hey, someone needs to direct the straight-to-video Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, right? Right

Uggie is top dog at the first ever Golden Collar Awards

The Academy Awards may be off-limits to canine superstar Uggie - with a spokesperson for The Weinstein Company revealing earlier today that "Uggie has not been asked to participate or appear at the Oscars" - but that didn't stop the pooch from stealing the show at the inaugural Golden Collar Awards at a ceremony in Los Angeles, California on Monday evening.

Devised by DogNewsDaily in order to 'recognise canine excellence in Hollywood films', the Golden Collar Awards saw Uggie receive two nominations for Best Dog in a Theatrical Film for his work in The Artist and Water for Elephants, taking home the gong for the former and adding to a growing list of accolades for the acclaimed silent feature that includes the prestigious Palm Dog at the Cannes Film Festival, not to mention a few others for its human cast and crew.

Movie and TV top dogs nominated in Golden Collar Awards

The role played by canine star Uggie in silent movie The Artist has attracted a lot of attention but it wasn't his first appearance.

The lovable Jack Russell (right) was also on screen in 2011's Water for Elephants starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.

In fact, this past year has seen several standout performances by dogs in Hollywood productions and on TV. And now this somewhat neglected area of acting has its own awards ceremony.

The first annual Golden Collar Awards take place in Los Angeles on Monday, February 13. The full list of nominees in all categories is included below.

Hummer (pictured top; photo: The Hollywood News), a four-year-old Pomeranian, has been nominated for his touching performance as Dolce alongside Charlize Theron in director Jason Reitman's new comedy Young Adult, released by Paramount in UK cinemas on February 3.

Reitman explained how he came across Hummer: "I couldn't find the right dog,
