http://movieweb.com/movie/the-smurfs/ We join star Neil Patrick Harris on location at the famed Kaufman Astoria Studios in New York City Last summer we were lucky enough to be invited to spend a day on set of Sony's film adaptation of The Smurfs. Created by Belgian cartoonist Peyo in the late 1950's, The Smurfs became a favorite with American households in the 1980's. The long-running cartoon introduced a generation to the singing and dancing, blue creatures that were relentlessly pursued by the evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria). Papa Smurf (Jonathan Winters), Brainy (Fred Armisen), Clumsy (Anton Yelchin), Grouchy (George Lopez), and Smurfette (Katy Perry), these characters are about to take the summer by storm in a huge, special effects extravaganza shot in storied locations around New York City.
We met the super cool Sony publicity team at the legendary Kaufman Astoria studios in Queens, New York. The studio was founded in 1920 by a godfather of cinema, Adolph Zuckor. This giant facility nestled fifteen minutes from Manhattan has been home to everything from the Marx Brothers to the Cosby Show, and continues to be a vibrant production hub for Hollywood. I got goosebumps walking through the halls and seeing every award you can think of proudly displayed. Last summer The Smurfs reigned supreme as the entire studio was devoted to the film.Read More
http://movieweb.com/movie/rio/ Director Carlos Saldanha, musician Sergio Mendes, and actors Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx, and Gorge Lopez discuss the upcoming animated film Cast and crew recently gathered at the Darryl F. Zanuck Theater on the 20th Century Fox lot to give members of the press a chance to get an advanced look at some scenes from the upcoming 3D animated family film Rio. The film, which opens on April 15th, is a 3D animated adventure from the makers of the Ice Age saga. The film centers on a rare macaw named Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) that travels with his owner Linda (Leslie Mann) from Minnesota to Rio de Janeiro in order to meet another bird of his kind, Jewel (Anne Hathaway). But it's not love at first sight for these two lovebirds. An evil cockatoo named Nigel (Jemaine Clement) soon kidnaps them and their adventure begins. In order to survive, Blu will finally have to learn to fly. With the help of a toucan (George Lopez), a bulldog (Tracy Morgan), a redhead bird (Will i Am), and a yellow canary (Jamie Foxx) the two must escape and reunite Blu with Linda.
Oscar nominated actress, and this year's host, Anne Hathaway, plays Jewel the object of Blu's affections. The actress talked about her first meeting with the film's director and what convinced her to join the project. "What I remember from the first time I met Carlos is that he showed me visuals from the film. They were so breathtaking that they made me want to do the movie. He told me the story of this bird that didn't have much confidence but who was determined to learn how to fly. Then he showed me this beautiful picture of what he was intending to do and that one image filled me with so much joy that I decide to do the movie," Hathaway explained. "The other reason is because Carlos wrote me a great character. She is fun, feisty and free spirited. What I love about her is how she deals with flying. She knows how to fly and all she wants to do is fly. But she doesn't know how to love. She doesn't know how to let people in and so she has actually not known true freedom yet. We'll see how far she has to go to find love and who she'll love when the movie comes out," the actress hinted.Read More
