Sadly this is not another entry in the Troll film saga. Having found massive success animating creepy, small, cloying things in the Despicable Me films, Dreamworks will double-down and next turn their attention to Trolls, a film based on the Olsen twin-like troll dolls that have reemerged as a toy fad every other decade since the ’60s like the herpes of the toy world. The Wrap reports that Anna Kendrick will lead the voice cast. She will play “Poppy, the relentlessly upbeat princess at the center of Trolls, a fun-filled adventure that will reveal the story behind the beloved, colorful nature of the Trolls‘ trademark, gravity-defying hair.”

If that origin is just hairspray that will be a bit of a disappointment.

The Mayans may not have been accurate with their prediction that the world would end in 2012, but maybe we just interpreted that information wrong. Perhaps their prediction was that 2012 would be the end of movies not being about the end of the world. Because there are seriously a shit ton of those nowadays.

Hitting theaters before Simon Pegg‘s The World’s End and Seth Rogen’s This Is The End, comes Rapturepalooza. The film stars actors from the Apatow and Edgar Wright camps that didn’t end up in those other films but still wanted to participate in some isn’t-it-weird-the-world-is-ending hijinks. Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley star as a young couple squaring off against Craig Robinson‘s Anti-Christ. The supporting cast includes Ken Jeong, Thomas Lennon, Tyler Labine, Rob Huebel, Ana Gasteyer, Paul Scheer, and Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World’s Rob Corddry. No more world ending films after these. ‘Kay, guys?

Halloween is the season for creepy stop-motion animated children’s movies. And so today we have a new trailer for ParaNorman, from the studio that brought you Coraline. I’m not much of an animation buff but this looks pretty cool, and it also has one of the best titles I’ve seen in a while (I’m a sucker for puns). The trailer doesn’t have much information in the way of plot, but it does have a lot of creepy images and it looks cool. And check out this voice cast: Casey Affleck, John Goodman, Jeff Garlin, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Elaine Stritch. I know most of those names!

ParaNorman is scheduled for an August, 2012 release, so expect lots more information to come between now and then. Below you can also see a (kind of bland) poster for the movie. (The Playlist)

This morning we have a new trailer for Will Reiser’s autobiographical 50/50 that focuses more on the comedic and less on the film’s bummerific aspects. This shorter look leans more heavily on Seth Rogen to make light of Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s cancer like any good friend would. Though as evidenced here, using cancer to pick up chicks isn’t as foolproof as it sounds. It’s cancer. Not a puppy.

50/50 opens in theaters on September 30th and also stars Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Phillip Baker Hall, and Angelica Houston.

Looks like What To Expect When You’re Expecting is getting the full-on high profile ensemble cast treatment. More popularly known as the He’s Just Not That Into You casting technique, the Kirk Jones film has added Chris Rock, Anna Kendrick, and Brooklyn Decker to the cast that already includes Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz.

Rock will play the head of a group of expectant fathers who speaks at unnecessarily loud volumes and Kendrick and Decker will both play mommies-to-be. Kendrick’s character is Rosie, a girl who becomes pregnant after hooking up with a fellow food truck owner. Five bucks says they open a bakery truck called “Bun In The Oven.” Decker, meanwhile, will play an impossibly hot woman married to an older man. She pisses off all her friends when she breezes through a pregnancy with twins and is still awarded the Congressional Medal Of Women I’d Like To Motorboat. Haters gonna hate. (Deadline and Deadline)

Please stick around after the awkward introduction to watch the trailer for 50/50. Based on the true story of cancer survivor Will Reiser and directed by Jonathan Levine (The Wackness), the film looks pretty well done. Joseph Gordon-Levitt slaps on a cardigan to play Adam (based on Reiser), the cancer-stricken 27-year old who must learn to live with the disease.

Seth Rogen addresses Reiser at the top of the trailer as one of his “best friends.” But then he goes and co-stars as the goofy best friend. Is he imitating himself? Could be. Though at first I thought he was imitating the character Dan Fogler always plays.

‘Rapture-Palooza’ In Talks With Anna Kendrick And Some Dude From ‘Bones’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rapture-palooza-in-talks-with-anna-kendrick-and-some-dude-from-bones/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rapture-palooza-in-talks-with-anna-kendrick-and-some-dude-from-bones/#comments Tue, 03 May 2011 21:43:24 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=210280 "The end of the world has never been this funny!" - That's what some dumb pull-quote will say.

The end of days can be funny, and not in a “I’m high as hell and keep nudging my buddy cause 2012 is so amazingly awful” type of way. Like Kevin Smith‘s Dogma, only…funny.

Rapture-Palooza, after having signed the always-awesome Craig Robinson, is in talks with Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daly to jump aboard as well. Kendrick you probably know from her Oscar-nominated turn in Up in the Air, and John Francis Daly you probably don’t know from “Freaks and Geeks” and “Bones.”

The fact that Rapture-Palooza could score anyone of note, even a “Bones” actor, is pretty amazing given that it will have a production budget of less than $2MM. The film, described as “Zombieland meets The Big Lebowski” is written by Chris Matheson and is helmed by lauded commercial director Paul Middleditch.

Regardless of how the movie turns out, if they aren’t able to get a $2MM return on this guy, the producers should be drawn and quartered in front of Spago. (THR)
