Rio Synopsis

RIO is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the "Ice Age" films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there's another - and that she's a she - he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it's far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life's many wonders. RIO brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.

The Blue Macaw Who Inspired Rio Has Died With No Offspring The Blue Macaw Who Inspired Rio Has Died With No Offspring
In the 2011 film Rio, a male blue macaw – one of the most endangered species on Earth – is discovered living in Minnesota and is flown all the way down to Rio de Janeiro in the hopes that he can help repopulate the species with a female blue macaw. The story has a happy ending, as Blu and Jewel wind up living happily ever after with three children. Keep those cheery memories in mind as you read the next few paragraphs, because I’m about to lay some unfortunate “real world” on you.

Rio 3: The Cast Tells Us Where They Want To Go In A Sequel Rio 3: The Cast Tells Us Where They Want To Go In A Sequel
Does this mean that Rio 3 is inevitable? Probably. Director Carlos Saldanha has dabbled in sequels over the years, having helmed three Ice Age movies and a second Rio film.

Fox Is Building A Theme Park In Malaysia With Alien And Life Of Pi Rides Fox Is Building A Theme Park In Malaysia With Alien And Life Of Pi Rides
This actually isn't the first time that Fox has tried to launch a theme park of their own. In 1999 the studio opened the doomed Fox Studios Backlot in Australia, but the idea wound up flopping and the park closed two years after it opened. The Genting Outdoor Theme Park that currently exists will begin the upgrade process in September...

Oscars May Leave Out Best Original Song Performances At This Year's Ceremony Oscars May Leave Out Best Original Song Performances At This Year's Ceremony
Due to the Academy’s voting system for Oscar nominees, there are just two original songs nominated for Oscars this year. If seeing “Real in Rio” or “Man or Muppet” performed at the Oscars later this month was one of the things you were most anticipating, you may be in for a disappointment. Rumor has it, neither song will be performed at this year’s ceremony.

Rio Sequel Likely To Take Flight Rio Sequel Likely To Take Flight
"I think the plan is for the movie to come three or four months before the World Cup," Sergio Mendes said. The 2014 World Cup takes place in Brazil, where the original Rio was set. "Fox has been talking about (it) and it looks like it's going to happen. We're going to have a meeting I think next week and Carlos is coming to town to tell us the story, and it looks like it's a go."

Weekend Box Office - Elephants, Big Cats and Madea, Oh My. Weekend Box Office - Elephants, Big Cats and Madea, Oh My.
What could be more charming than a computer animated parrot? According to this weekend's box office, neither a mad black woman's latest family outing nor big wild cats. Nope, not even Twilight idol Robert Pattinson watering circus animals.

Weekend Box Office - Rio Flies High, Scream Whimpers Weekend Box Office - Rio Flies High, Scream Whimpers
It's been a good year to be a computer animated movie. Well, relatively speaking. While overall sales numbers continue to slump, CG entries have floated to the top to take number one four weekends so far this year. And three of those movies currently rank in the top five money makers of the year to date with newcomer Rio hot on their heels.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Rio And Scream 4 Reviews This Rotten Week: Predicting Rio And Scream 4 Reviews
This Rotten Week has a few familiar folks up to the same old tricks. Wes Craven gives us another dose of Sidney Prescott and Blue Sky Studios dishes out more CGI animation. Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer.

The first two minutes of Rio are online and those first two minutes are a musical number. More than anything it reminds me of some of the better musical numbers in The Lion King

Blu Can't Fly, But The New Teaser For The Animated Film Rio Soars Blu Can't Fly, But The New Teaser For The Animated Film Rio Soars
Rio’s first teaser trailer features George Lopez’s character attempting to give Blu a flying lesson. These birds are looking good and, even better, they’re sure to be outstanding in 3D. To top it all off, John Powell is in charge of scoring the film and will be assisted by Sergio Mendes and Will.i.am.

Neil Patrick Harris Takes Anne Hathaway To Rio Neil Patrick Harris Takes Anne Hathaway To Rio
Is there anyone as cool as Neil Patrick Harris right now? I’m trying to think of someone, and I guess there’s always George Clooney, but even he doesn’t have the all-encompassing talent of Harris
