Puss In Boots Blu-Ray Announced Alongside $5 Off Coupon
Puss in Boots is the story of its title character (Antonio Banderas) as he goes on a rip-roaring adventure to steal magic beans from Jack and Jill. The Shrek spin-off also features performances from Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton, and Amy Sedaris. The film came out back in October and made over $391 million worldwide. Which is why it is good to hear Dreamworks...

Weekend Box Office - Puss In Boots Stomps Thieves And Stoners
Call it the curse of Eddie Murphy. This weekend the first Shrek related movie that didn't feature Murphy was relatively successful while the new movie featuring Murphy got only a mediocre reception.

Friday Box Office Predicts Puss In Boots Beating Out Tower Heist For The Weekend
The other new release of the weekend, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, also performed worse than expected, making $5.4 million on Friday and estimated for a $14 million weekend. But while Tower Heist is only pretending to be cheap, Harold & Kumar-- like all of the previous movies-- is the real deal

DreamWorks Animation Stock Falls Even With Puss In Boots At #1
In fact, the $34 million isn't just lower than all of the Shrek movies-- it's the company's lowest opening since Flushed Away in 2006. Yes, Puss in Boots-- a spinoff from DreamWorks Animatiion's indisputably hit series-- grossed less in its opening than the studio's lowest-grossing film since Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Puss In Boots Ticket
Earlier this year I reviewed the 3D for Kung Fu Panda 2 the most recent movie from Dreamworks Animation before Puss in Boots. I ended up giving the film a score of 32 out of 35 because the 3D utilization was excellent, almost to the point of perfection. Now the question is can the 3D in Puss in Boots top it?

This Rotten Week: Predicting In Time, Puss in Boots And The Rum Diary Reviews
Winner, winner, roasted organic chicken dinner with a nice bottle of 1999 Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache, or however that saying goes. The Rotten Challenge is over. Little surprise here, I won.

Why Prequels Are The New Sequels
For decades, Hollywood’s go-to move when it came to extending the life of a popular franchise was greenlighting a sequel. But with lackluster installments like Lethal Weapon 4, The Matrix: Revolutions and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull-- among many, many others-- methodically killing the strategy over the years, something had to change

Puss In Boots Moves Its Release Date Up A Week
Because Thanksgiving means bringing families together, it also means creating activities for kids to do before you feel the need to blow your brains out. This is why November tends to be a very child-friendly month of the year. This year alone the calendar is stuffed with titles like The Muppets, Happy Feet Two and Arthur Christmas.

Puss In Boots Is Back With Another Parody Video
This one makes a lot more sense than the Dos Equis parody. I’d have to imagine that kids are more familiar with deodorant than beer (or at least I pray they are). What’s interesting is that this is the first advertisement that has actually linked back to the feature film, which is about an adventure to steal the Goose That Lays The Golden Eggs.

Puss In Boots Is The Most Interesting Cat In The World
It would appear that the marketing for Dreamworks Animation's Puss in Boots is trying an interesting experiment. Set to be released in early November, we saw the first teaser trailer for the film back in June, but since then the previews have been funny viral videos. It began with the commerical for "No Pants" Pants last month and today we have a video titled "The Most Interesting Cat In The World." Check it out:

Antonio Banderas Pitches "No Pants" Pants In Puss In Boots Viral Video
The inconsistency of cartoon characters wearing pants has always baffled me. If Donald Duck doesn't wear pants, why does Mickey Mouse? What about Alvin and the Chipmunks vs. The Smurfs? I'll give some credit to the Looney Tunes, as they are committed to the "animals don't need clothes" bit, but everywhere else it's up in the air.

Full Puss In Boots Trailer
The first full trailer for Puss in Boots has arrived. Awhile back we got a teaser, but mostly that was just Puss dancing. This one contains actual footage from the movie which, well, kind of looks exactly like Zorro but with a kitty. It doesn’t help that Puss in Boots is actually voiced by the last guy to successfully play Zorro, Antonio Banderas.

New Puss In Boots Poster
For those of us who were overcome with joy when Dreamworks announced that Shrek 4 would be the last in the series, this Puss In Boots spin-off is a direct kick to the grief bone. The well-loved (though not by me) franchise will live on with Antonio Banderas leading the way and if there was a way for me to aggressively yawn about this in writing believe me I would.

It’s been scratching its way around DreamWorks Animation for years now, but it looks like the Puss in Boots spin-off of Shrek may still happen. If they really do get the thing made, don’t expect to see Puss teamed up with any of his Shrek buddies
