'Turbo Fast' clip: See what Turbo and Skidmark are up to -- VIDEO

Kids deserve to binge on TV House of Cards-style too, right? But because Cards and Orange is the New Black aren’t exactly G-rated, Netflix launched a Dreamworks-produced animated series called Turbo Fast about a team of action-oriented snails just for kids. READ FULL STORY

'How to Train Your Dragon 2' trailer: Vikings, dragons, and one mother of a secret -- VIDEO


Hello again, Hiccup and Toothless!

How to Train Your Dragon 2 begins five years after that dynamic duo first formed a bond that would change the island of Berk forever. (As Hiccup explains in the movie’s new trailer, “Dragons used to be a bit of a problem. But now they’ve all moved in.”) Before, Hiccup and his Viking buddies were limited to exploring land and sea; now they’ve gained access to the air as well, which means the sequel gets to feature even more beautifully animated soaring and swooping than the original.

It also means the introduction of new lands and characters — like Valka, a mysterious dragon rescuer voiced by Cate Blanchett who doubles as a figure from Hiccup’s past. (Who is she? Yeah, the trailer totally spoils the answer.)

Want more flight, fireballs, and touching acts of friendship? Simply feast your eyes on the preview below.


'DreamWorks Dragons: Defenders of Berk': Get a peek at the premiere -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

What happens after you train your dragon? You join forces with him to defend your mythical Viking world. Obviously.

The second season of DreamWorks Dragons — subtitled “Defenders of Berk” — finds Hiccup, Toothless, and their dragon/dragon rider pals fighting foes both old and new — including “a fearsome new dragon that could threaten Berk’s very existence.” (Given that How to Train Your Dragon 2 will be released in 2014, we’re going to guess Berk comes out just fine.)

In the season premiere, the gang founds a new group that should help them on their quest: Dragon Flight Club, which bears a striking resemblance to a certain R-rated underground society. (The first rule of Dragon Flight Club: There is no Dragon Flight Club.)


New trailer for 'Turbo,' starring the voice of Ryan Reynolds, now online

Dreamworks’ answer to Disney’s Cars — and every superhero story that begins with a life-changing, mutation-causing disaster — just got a new trailer.

Turbo, the animated movie about a snail who wishes he were speedy kicks things into high gear when a highway accident sucks him into the engine of a sports car. One dash of nitric oxide, one journey through this snail’s changing anatomy, and one power up ballad later, we’ve got ourselves a very speedy snail — who by the way is voiced by Ryan Reynolds.

Check out the new trailer, which hit the web today, below:

'The Croods' trailer: Emma Stone and Nicolas Cage lead their prehistoric family on a grand adventure -- VIDEO

It’s the first family road trip — ever! In the new trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods, the titular caveperson family is forced to turn to a more advanced human named Guy (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) for help in finding a new cave when theirs is destroyed thanks to a little thing called plate tectonics. Paterfamilias Grug (voiced by Nicolas Cage) isn’t exactly keen on Guy and his hifalutin ideas, but his daughter Eep (voiced by Emma Stone) is far more open minded.

'Rise of the Guardians': Santa, Easter Bunny, and Sandman in knock-out new clip! -- VIDEO

Kids often dream about waking up and catching Santa or the Tooth Fairy in their rooms.

In this new clip from DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians, one such kid gets way more than he bargained for.


FIRST LOOK: Emma Stone as cavegirl in DreamWorks Animation's 'The Croods' -- EXCLUSIVE

You’ve heard of low-brow family comedy, but in this case we’re talking about the actual slope of foreheads.

DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming caveman saga The Croods (out March 22) is set during a fictional “lost” prehistoric era, with Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Cloris Leachman, and Clark Duke voicing a not-quite-homo-sapien clan trying to survive some cataclysmic change.

After continental drift smashes open their cave and leaves them wandering over landscapes such as the floor of a now-empty ocean, the Crood family encounters every protective parent’s worst nightmare — a guy (named Guy, voiced by Ryan Reynolds) who wins their daughter’s heart by showing her how to start fires.

Dads today are still terrified of that scenario. READ FULL STORY
