Obama Gets the Star Treatment at DreamWorks


President Obama talked about the economy, praised DreamWorks and got the inside scoop on two of the studio’s upcoming movies, during his visit to the Glendale campus.
“I’m going to ask Jeff if maybe I can work here,” Obama said to the crowd outside the studio. It’s a great place to work, but all of you have friends and family who aren’t as lucky. A lot of people are still struggling out there. Entertainment is one of the bright spots of our economy. The difference between what we can do and other countries is enormous. This is one of America’s economic engines. Not just DreamWorks, but Disney, Warner, Universal and others.”
Earlier today, the president observed a mo-cap scene for the June 2014 feature How to Raise Your Dragon 2, in the company of director Dean DeBlois and producer Bonnie Arnold. “That was wonderful,” the POTUS said. “Coming to a theater near you!”
He was accompanied on his VIP trip by topper Jeffrey Katzenberg, one of the president’s top supporters. He then sat in a recording of the studio’s holiday 2014 feature Home, with two of the sci fi fantasy’s stars, Steve Martin and Jim Parsons.


“How’s the banjo playing?” Obama asked Martin, who had performed at the White House before. The popular actor told the president that it had “the biggest thrill of his life.” Without missing a beat, Obama responded, “That’s how I felt about it…I told Michelle: ‘Biggest thrill of my life. Inauguration, nothing, Steve playing banjo, that was big.’”
Home director Tim Johnson described the movie to Obama as “an alien invasion film told entirely from the alien’s point of view.”
“Well where did we go?” Obama asked. Johnson explained, “Humans are put on a preserve in the movie.” Obama asked, “Do they feed us?” The helmer responded, “Mostly ice cream,” and Obama offered an approving look, per the Los Angeles Times.
The president was then treated to a clip of the one of the film’s aliens, mouthing an audio clip of Obama speaking at an official event.
“Happy Thanksgiving, everybody, welcome to the White House,” the alien said in Obama’s voice, which made the president laugh. “Now that’s good, I’ve got to get that clip…That will impress the girls. That’s wonderful.”
Tim Johnson then offered to animate Obama’s next State of the Union address, before the president observed the actors recording some lines in a studio booth.
Outside the studio’s Glendale campus, vfx professionals held a peaceful rally, wearing green (for the color of green-screen) and held signs to protest tax incentives that took visual effects work away from California and to offshore studios.
This has been quite a historic event as it marks the first time a sitting president of the U.S. has visited an animation studio.

The Good Dinosaur



What if the meteor that killed off the dinosaurs missed Earth and dinosaurs kept living? Aw look, it's Arlo and his pet human! Out of nowhere, the first teaser poster for Pixar's next release, The Good Dinosaur, has debuted online thanks to poster blog J Posters (who put their watermark all over this thing). Pixar fans may recall that The Good Dinosaur was just delayed from summer 2014 to November 2015, a huge change even though D23 attendees already saw footage and the project has been in production since 2010 at least. This poster finally gives the public a clear look at the two lead characters, the Apatosaurus named Arlo and his human pet (who doesn't seem to have a name yet). Take a look below as we wait patiently for the trailer.

Pixar's The Good Dinosaur is directed by Bob Peterson, co-directed by Pete Sohn, from a story by Enrico Casarosa & Bob Peterson. The project has been in development since 2010 when a very early concept art was discovered. In this story, the dinosaurs are the dominant species on Earth (since the asteroid missed and they lived on for another million years). One day one of the dinosaurs discovers a human toddler that isn't afraid of these creatures, and they adopt him as their pet. Arlo, the youngest and lead dinosaur's name, will be voiced by Lucas Neff ("Raising Hope"). Neil Patrick Harris and Judy Greer voice his siblings Cliff and Ivy. John Lithgow and Frances McDormand voice their parents Poppa and Momma, respectively. The Good Dinosaur was originally set for summer 2014, but was pushed back until November 25th, 2015.

Justin and the Knights of Valour Trailer


Justin and the Knights of Valour is a 2013 Spanish 3D animated adventure fantasy film co-written (with Matthew Jacobs) and directed by Manuel Sicilia. The film has an all-star cast of Freddie Highmore, Antonio Banderas, James Cosmo, Charles Dance, Tamsin Egerton, Rupert Everett, Barry Humphries, Alfred Molina, Mark Strong, David Walliams, Julie Walters, Olivia Williams and Saoirse Ronan.

Justin (Freddie Highmore) lives in a kingdom where bureaucrats rule and knights have been ousted. His dream is to be become one of the Knights of Valour, like his grandfather, Sir Roland was, but his father Reginald (Alfred Molina), the chief counsel to the Queen (Olivia Williams), wants his son to follow in his footsteps and become a lawyer. After an argument with his father, Justin seeks comfort from his grandmother (Julie Walters) who encourages him to follow his dreams. Justin notices that his grandfather's sword is missing. He decides to go and find his grandfather's sword as his quest. His grandmother gives him a key which originally belonged to his grandfather and tells him to go to an abbey where three wise monks would train him. Before Justin leaves on his quest, he visits his crush, Lara (Tamsin Egerton), who is a spoilt brat to say farewell to her, though she wasn't really listening. Justin then slips out of home and embarks on a quest to become a knight.

Along the way he meets a beautiful, feisty girl named Talia (Saoirse Ronan), who works at the Broken Eagle Inn, a job which she doesn't enjoy, and a quirky wizard called Melquiades (David Walliams). Talia is immediately enamored by Justin, which Melquiades notices. Meanwhile, Justin's grandmother visits the Queen, who tells her that she regrets her decision of ousting the knights. An armour polisher overhears their conversation and turns himself into a knight, naming himself Sir Clorex (Antonio Banderas). He instantly becomes popular with the townsfolk, and is used to attract customers at the Broken Eagle Inn. But Talia is immediately able to tell that he is a phony. Justin arrives at the abbey and receives training from the monks, Braulio (Barry Humphries), an inventor who receives nervous attacks when something goes wrong with his machinery and inventions, Legantir (Charles Dance), the head monk of the abbey and Blucher (James Cosmo), a knight and an old friend of Sir Roland. They train him using the ways of the Knights of Valour.

The monks then receive news that a banished former knight Sir Heraclio (Mark Strong) and his accomplice Sota (Rupert Everett), have returned from exile, and have started gathering an army to sought revenge on the Queen for outlawing knights. The monks later reveal to Justin the Hall of Knights where all the statues of the finest knights were kept. Justin finds his grandfather's statue and notices that his grandfather's sword is not in the chest below it. Sir Heraclio's space is empty which surprises Justin. The monks tell him that Heraclio betrayed the knights which had him removed from the hall. Blucher then tells Justin what really happened to his grandfather and how the Queen outlawed knights: The King was killed in a battle and all the ruling was left to the Queen. The Queen started depending on lawyers and Justin's father chose Law over Knights, thus making a contract that outlawed Knights which the Queen signed. Heraclio was furious. He tried to attack the Queen, but Justin's grandfather defended the Queen and was killed by Heraclio with his own sword. Justin then realizes that his grandfather's sword is with Heraclio.

The monks then attempt to challenge Justin by battling a dragon, which turns out to be a crocodile named Gustav, in mechanical gears. Justin gets injured after he succeeds in hitting the target. The monks fear for his safety and decide to end the training. Just before he leaves, Blucher gives Justin his sword and tells him that he'll need it. On his way back home, Justin saves Talia when she gets intimidated by thugs. Talia also joins in and helps Justin defeat the thugs, resulting her getting fired, but she interprets it as quitting. Justin is amazed that Talia is able to fight like a man, as she had learned them off her brothers. Talia gets slightly disheartened when she learns that Justin has feelings for Lara. Meanwhile, Justin's grandmother tells her son Reginald to understand Justin's desire of becoming a knight, just like his father allowed him to become a Lawyer. She persuades Reginald to bond with his son at Lara's party, an event that Justin won't miss.

Justin attends Lara's party with Talia as his date. Justin is shocked when he finds out that Lara has fallen in love with Sir Clorex. Like Talia, Justin can also tell that Sir Clorex is a phony. Sota and his dim-witted brothers evade the party in order to kidnap Lara for ransom. Justin attempts to save Lara, but Sota injects a drug in him making him disorientated and ends up embarrassing himself in front of Lara. Sir Clorex saves Lara, but Sota and his brothers escape. Lara mocks Justin about his desire to become a knight. Reginald then attempts to bond with his son, but Justin sadly tells him that he will go along and go to Law School (earlier on in the story, Justin was immediately accepted into Law School since he was Reginald's son). Sir Clorex and Lara share a seemingly romantic moment together, until Sir Clorex 'kidnaps' Lara and rides off with her.

On his way to Law School, Justin bumps into Talia who tells him that Sir Clorex and Lara have been captured by Heraclio and Justin is their only hope to defeat him. After some encouragement and persuasion, Reginald finally realizes his son's desire to become a knight and allows Justin to stand up against Heraclio. Justin, Talia and Melquidas then go to Heraclio's hideout where they find Sir Clorex, being questioned by Heraclio about his knighthood, and Lara being help captive. Justin and Talia break into the room and briefly fight. Sir Clorex then grabs Lara and runs off with her. Justin and Talia defeat Sota and his brothers, before coming face to face with Heraclio's army. Talia then confronts Sir Clorex and engages in a fist fight with him. She eventually corners him and finishes him off by kicking soot all over him, telling Sir Clorex that he is simply a phony and that it's not an armour who proves he's a knight, it's the man inside.

Blucher arrives with Gustav to aid Justin and defeat Heraclio. Gustav scares the army away, while Heraclio and Blucher engage in a duel. Heraclio takes the underarm and stabs Blucher. Justin then duels with Heraclio. The two then get stuck on a water mill above a waterfall where they fight over Sir Roland's sword. Heraclio slips and falls to his death in the water and Justin retrieves the sword. Blucher is on the brink of death due to the wound and Justin, Talia and Lara attempt to save him. Justin then uses some cool leaves to sooth the wound. Just as it seems as though it was too late to save Blucher, it turns out that the leaves worked on Blucher and he recovers.

The Queen then give Justin the title of Sir Justin and praises him for his bravery. She decides to abolish the outlawed knights by signing a contract. Reginald is hesitant at first, as he fears that his son would follow the same fate as what had happened to his father. Justin then attempts to not make change to appease his father, but Reginald signs the contract. When it seemed as though Justin still has feelings for Lara, he turns her down much to her disappointment and surprise, as she was starting to like him. He then turns to Talia and tells her that he wants to continue going on quests with her, as he has realized that she is the girl whom he truly loves. Talia happily accepts and the two share a romantic kiss.

At the abbey, the monks have finished creating a statue of Justin in the Hall of Knights. A wall is then torn down, revealing another hall for future knights.
