Dr. Seussí The Lorax Synopsis
From the creators of Despicable Me and the imagination of Dr. Seuss comes the 3D-CG feature Dr. Seussí The Lorax, an adaptation of the classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. The animated adventure follows the journey of a 12-year-old as he searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.

Danny DeVito will lend his vocal talents to the iconic title character of the Lorax, while Ed Helms will voice the enigmatic Once-ler. Also bringing their talents to the film are global superstars Zac Efron as Ted, the idealistic youth who searches for the Lorax, and Taylor Swift as Audrey, the girl of Tedís dreams. Rob Riggle will play financial king OíHare, and beloved actress Betty White will portray Tedís wise Grammy Norma.

Weekend Box Office: Lorax Cuts A Limp John Carter Down To Size Weekend Box Office: Lorax Cuts A Limp John Carter Down To Size
John Carter has been hyped and re-hyped for months, including recent promotionals touting it as the first major blockbuster of the year. Turns out it isn't even in the top four biggest openings of the year so far.

John Carter Beats The Lorax At Friday Box Office, But It Won't Hold John Carter Beats The Lorax At Friday Box Office, But It Won't Hold
The audience for John Carter is skewing a good bit older, with nearly 70% of the audience over the age of 25-- the reverse of what usually happens when you've got a big tentpole 3D film that crams in the teenage male audiences. We're still trying to sort out exactly what happened with John Carter to make audiences so uninterested-- you can join the conversation about that

Weekend Box Office: Tree-Hugging Lorax Chops Down One Record After Another Weekend Box Office: Tree-Hugging Lorax Chops Down One Record After Another
The Lorax... a record breaker? Given its bland marketing and so-so response from critics it was unlikely, but if Sunday's estimated numbers are proven correct, the CG rendition of Dr. Seuss story will not only be the top opening of the year so far, it will also have narrowly received the highest ever opening for a non-sequel animated film.

The Lorax Dominates Friday Box Office With $17.5 Million Start The Lorax Dominates Friday Box Office With $17.5 Million Start
Despite some questionable tie-ins with corporate sponsors like SUV manufacturers and some negative reviews (including our own), the movie made $17.4 million on Friday, and is on track for a $60 million weekend. If those numbers don't sound like they add up, bear in mind that family-friendly movies do crazy business during matinees on Saturday and Sunday

The Lorax Being Used To Sell SUVs And Disposable Diapers The Lorax Being Used To Sell SUVs And Disposable Diapers
Now, when a company chooses not to promote any sensible facts or figures about their supposedly eco-friendly model, and instead boasts something lawyers can't refute, I'm immediately suspicious. But I'm not a car person, so I consulted Automobile magazine to understand just what these purposely-ambiguous claims may mean. It turns out that the "Skyactiv technology" the announcer repeatedly refers to basically means...

Fox News Declares The Lorax Is Indoctrinating Your Children Fox News Declares The Lorax Is Indoctrinating Your Children
Fox News doesn't get a lot of mention on this site, as we typically talk movies, not politics. But Lou Dobbs drew our attention when he spoke out a supposed conspiracy between President Obama and Hollywood to brainwash children with cartoon characters. On his show, Dobbs declared that two new movies, The Secret World of Arrietty and The Lorax were created by Hollywood to "indoctrinate" children into supporting environmental causes and Occupy Wall StreetÖor something.

The Lorax Video Features Taylor Swift Talking About Her Character Audrey The Lorax Video Features Taylor Swift Talking About Her Character Audrey
In order to make The Lorax into a story that fits the size of a feature film, itís likely that additional characters and back-stories have been added to the classic Dr. Seuss tale. That would certainly explain the presence of Taylor Swiftís character Audrey, whoís featured in the trailers for the film and seems to be the motivation behind a boyís search for trees and discovery of the Lorax.

The Lorax Crashes The Once-ler's Pad In New Clip The Lorax Crashes The Once-ler's Pad In New Clip
Here we see a younger pre-hermit Once-ler (Ed Helms) getting a literal rude awakening thanks to the Lorax (Danny DeVito) and his band of woodland friends. It's a scene that doesn't exist in the source material, but seems as well-suited as a thneed as it draws attention to what the Once-ler is really doing by chopping down truffula trees, namely invading someone else's home and treating it with little to no respect.

Going Behind The Scenes Of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax Going Behind The Scenes Of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
Dr. Seuss is one of those writers whom we will never forget. From themes that touch children alike to the unique drawings to his use of trisyllabic meter, the authorís work has already touched multiple generations and it will continue to do so until the end of time. One element helping to ensure Seussí is never forgotten is the on-going film series based on his books. It began in 2008 with Jimmy Hayward and Steve Martinoís Horton Hears a Who! and on March 2nd it will continue...

The latest trailer for The Lorax is out and this one inches much closer to the heart of the Dr. Seuss story on which the upcoming animated film is based. This one introduces the villain of the piece, and also gives us more than a hint at the message the film may be trying to convey to its young audience.

The Latest Lorax Trailer Gives A Better Look At The Once-Ler And His Story The Latest Lorax Trailer Gives A Better Look At The Once-Ler And His Story
The Australian trailer for Universalís upcoming adaptation of Dr. Seussí The Lorax has made its way online and it seems to put a bit more emphasis on the source material than the previously released trailer did. While the previously released trailer didnít really offer much in terms of the story, aside from a boyís interest in trees, this one gives us a little bit more, and at the very least gives us a better idea of how the source material fits into the movie.

Dr. Seuss adaptations have been hit and miss on the big screen since How the Grinch Stole Christmas arrived in 2000. While that was an enjoyable film, it didnít exactly do gangbusters at the box office, and the follow up, 2003ís The Cat in the Hat, barely made back its budget and critically flopped flat on its face.

First Look At The Villainous Once-ler From Dr. Seuss's The Lorax First Look At The Villainous Once-ler From Dr. Seuss's The Lorax
Big-screen adaptations of the works of Dr. Seuss don't have the greatest of track records. That hasn't quenched Hollywood's desire to milk Seuss's beloved works, however, and this March will see the release of the latest Seussian outing: an adaptation of 1971's The Lorax. Whether it proves to be worthy of Seuss's legacy remains to be seen, but one creative choice may prove controversial to fans. The movie will reveal the full appearance of the Once-ler, the tragic villain of The Lorax.

Here's something we can be thankful for: at some point during the mid-aughts, somebody said, "Maybe we should stop trying to make live-action Dr. Seuss movies like The Cat In The Hat and How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and instead use 3D animation."

In a perfect storm of tween sensations who are maybe a little past their high point, Swift and Efron will be playing each others love interests, Efron the "idealistic young boy who searches for the Lorax" and Swift "the girl of his dreams." My favorite casting detail of all is that Helms will be voicing the Once-ler
