BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Critics agreed that there wasn't much to laugh at in Kevin Hart and Ice Cube's new comedy Ride Along, but if the past has taught us anything it's that packing 30 second TV spots with images of ex-rappers making angry faces and small children insulting popular stand-up comedians will put butts in the seats almost every time.
Looking to Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Ride Along and The Nut Job for inspiration, we've pulled together a selection of espionage thrillers, buddy comedies, and animated adventures!
Looking at seven separate categories, our To 3D Or Not To 3D column considers the full scope of the 3D viewing experience. Consider it a consumer's guide for your moviegoing, where you can weigh in on how you plan to see The Nut Job with our viewers poll.
Movie studios are starting to get back into the swing of things after a few slow weeks. That means the winter movies season is kicking into gear. And while these movies don’t look particularly good by any means, at least they don’t involve Hercules. This week we’ve got ride alongs, shadow recruits, the devil and nut jobs.
It is a new year in cinema, at least for everyone who isn’t still coked up from Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. Unfortunately, January tends to be a dumping ground where studios release all of the films that weren’t good enough to push for Oscar consideration or big enough to release during the summer tentpole season.
Things will be getting pretty nutty in January as Open Road Films brings the animated 3D film The Nut Job into theaters. Following up on the very Hobbity trailer that recently released, we have this exclusive TV spot, which gives us another look at this nutty animated comedy, which centers on a squirrel who’s determined to pull off the ultimate nut store heist.
It can’t be a coincidence that the newest trailer for The Nut Job has some serious Lord of the Rings undertones. Or more likely, Hobbit, undertones, as the latest preview for the Open Road 3D animated film has released just in time for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug to arrive in theaters.
Will Arnett plays Surly, a squirrel who lives up to his name. He teams up with his rat friend and a small crew of dumb animals to rob a nut store so that they can survive the winter by pigging out all the time. Of course, their planning could all be for naught if the nefarious Raccoon, voiced by Liam Neeson, has anything to say about it.
Based on the short film Surly Squirrel, The Nut Job follows a cantankerous squirrel whose been banned from the city park because of his bad attitude. To survive the winter, he and his fellow outcasts will need to pull off a risky heist, robbing Maury's Nut Store.
They name children's movies all kinds of weird and wacky things these days - earlier this year we saw a movie called Oogieloves and last year brought Gnomeo and Juliet. But now a new strangely titled kids project has arrived on the horizon and it's called The Nut Job. And it has brought on a cast.
