15 Animated Movies From The Last Decade We Bet You Won't Recognize
To be expected, the foreign films are the meatier bits, and the clear frontrunner to me is Hayao Miyazaki’s historical fantasy The Wind Rises - even though I haven’t seen it yet. It’s the last film for the legendary director, whose Spirited Away took the prize back in 2001.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Epic And Boardwalk Empire Season 3
Fast & Furious 6 roared into theaters this weekend, and if the estimates hold true, the film has secured itself a high spot on the list of successful Memorial Day openers. It hasn't quite topped Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End or Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but it's in that ballpark, with reports putting the action film's 4-day estimate at about $120 million.

Latest Epic Trailer Teaches You How To Ride A Hummingbird
Blue Sky are the animation wizards behind the Ice Age series and Rio.

International Epic Trailer Establishes Massive Battle Between Good And Evil
That is Mary Katherine, voiced by Amanda Seyfried, front and center. Behind her is the handsome young warrior name Nod, played by Josh Hutcherson. Farther back are the powers of darkness, including Christoph Waltz's malevolent Mandrake. In the foreground you can spot supporting good guys like Ronin, the archer voiced by Colin Farrell, and Mub, the energetic slug played by Aziz Ansari.
While the first trailer wordlessly revealed the world of Epic, where tiny Leaf Men ride hummingbirds and sprites that look like flowers hide in plain sight. But in its latest trailer, the focus goes to female lead Mary Katherine. Voiced by Amanda Seyfried, she is a seemingly typical teen until a magical accident shrinks her down to fairy size
Shrinking down the camera's eye to show nature from a bug-size perspective has the potential for something visually extraordinary given the advancements in animation since A Bug's Life. Looking at the trailer for Twentieth Century Fox upcoming animated film Epic, it seems like this movie may attempt to demonstrate just that.
