Good evening! The first news in a long time for How To Train Your Dragon 3, the animated saga started in 2010, where Cate Blanchett voices Hiccup’s mother, Valka. The third and final movie of the saga will be released in March 2019. If some of you is new to the fandom, go watch the movie and check the gallery here, here and here.
EXCLUSIVE: Oscar-winning Amadeus actor F. Murray Abraham will play the villain Grimmel in DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 3, which is set to conclude the story arc established by the first two movies about young viking Hiccup and Night Fury dragon Toothless.
Universal is releasing the third title March 1, 2019, with Abraham joining Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Kit Harrington, Cate Blanchett in the toon from writer-director Dean DeBlois. Bonnie Arnold and Brad Lewis are producing.
We hear Abraham’s voice test cinched the casting: Animators put his voice from his other titles against his animated persona, and it was a perfect fit. Abraham won’t be donning a Scottish accent, rather a deep-baritone voice in the classic villain sense.
“We are thrilled that F. Murray Abraham has joined our How to Train Your Dragon 3 cast as the villainous Grimmel,” said Chris deFaria, head of DreamWorks Animation Film Group. “This character brings a captivating new story line to the culmination of our trilogy. There is a gentlemanly calm to this sinister role, one that dovetails beautifully with this iconic actor’s immense range and talents.”
Good morning! After three years from its IMAX debut (Nov. 2013), Journey to the South Pacific, a stunning documentary narrated by Cate Blanchett, will be screened again, in 3D, at the National Geografic Giant Screen Theatre in the Centre of Society and Industry (Columbus, Ohio) from November 23 to December 16, 2016 (Tickets here). For the new fans, and the old ones, here are the trailer and the behind the scenes videos. Enjoy!
The London Film Festival revealed the line-up for its 60th edition. Voyage of Time: Life’s Journey will compete in the Journey section, and is set to debut on British soil on October 9. Tickets on sale from September 15.
The American premiere of Voyage of Time: Life’s Journey is been set by the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10, at 3:15 p.m., preceded by a Press and Industry Screening on September 9. TIFF also set two more public screenings on September 16 and on September 18.
Hello everyone! Great news for all the fans who hadn’t had the chance to visit the photo exhibition and watch the documentary narrated by Cate Blanchett. REFUGEE is now a travelling exhibit and the first stop is in Washington DC, at the Newseum Institute, from November 18, 2016 to March 12, 2007.
The third collaboration between Cate Blanchett and Terrence Malick will see the light of day on October 7th, 2016!
It didn’t show up in the Cannes line-up as some predicted, but we won’t have to wait too long for Terrence Malick’s long-gestating Voyage of Time. The Ennio Morricone-scored project — which is technically two films, one a more educational 40-minute IMAX version narrated by Brad Pitt and the other a feature-length cut narrated by Cate Blanchett — is described as “a celebration of the earth – from the birth of the universe to its final collapse.”
Finally, we have our first official confirmation on when it will arrive. Buried deep in an IMAX press release (via One Big Soul) about its first quarter 2016 earnings, they reveal that an October 7th, 2016 release is set for the IMAX version, which now makes a TIFF and/or Venice premiere likely. With only IMAX reporting now, there isn’t an update regarding the feature-length version, but hopefully it finds distribution around the same time.
Cate Blanchett lends her voice to the documentary film REFUGEE, a 23 minutes film that follows five internationally acclaimed photographers while they shoot pictures documenting the lives of displaced people on five continents.
The documentary is a part of the REFUGEE Photography Exhibition commissioned by the Annenberg Foundation, that opens to the public at the Annenberg Space for Photography on April 23, 2016 and runs through August 21, 2016.
The journey of filmmaker TerrenceMalick‘s Voyage of Time is nearing its own epic proportions at this point. The conception for the film was first announced years ago as an IMAX documentary about the history of life in our universe (not exactly a slapdash subject).
Then in 2014, Voyage of Time was shopped to buyers at Cannes, and now, IMAX, along with Broad Green Pictures, will being joining Sophisticated Films and Wild Bunch to complete the financing. Through this deal, Broad Green will receive the first North American distribution rights, after its exclusive IMAX release.
Voyage of Time was spawned from footage Malik shot for The Tree of Life, and will continue to explore those kinds of complex themes of science and spirit, birth and death, and the largest regions of the cosmos down to the smallest life on Earth. Two versions will be released: a 40-minute IMAX version, narrated by Brad Pitt, and a 35mm feature-length version narrated by Cate Blanchett.
The press release didn’t mention the formerly planned 2016 release of the film, so that remains in question. Still, with all of the backing in place and the voice actors now officially on the roster, Malick fans should be able to feel confident that this Voyage will eventually end up in theaters.
Quebec-born director Dean DeBlois didn’t expect to hear, “How To Train Your Dragon 2” when the envelope was finally opened for the best animated feature category at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes on Sunday night.
“I was genuinely shocked when I heard those words, and it was a real high,” said DeBlois, on the phone from Los Angeles Monday morning.
“Every award pundit had TheLEGO Movie winning.”
The film also features the vocal talents of Gerard Butler, America Ferrera and Cate Blanchett.
“With Cate Blanchett, this was her first time [doing animation], and she’s methodical about wanting to know every aspect of what the character is thinking, so it really became a discussion every time,” said DeBlois.
DeBlois is already hard at work on How to Train Your Dragon3, which he says should be out in June of 2017.
