Despicable Me 2
In a press release issued today about Universal's slate of upcoming animated movies produced by Illumination Entertainment, we got word on when the already announced "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and the properly assumed "Despicable Me 3" would hit theaters nationwide. But they also announced an untitled project for 2016, one that is infinitely more interesting than either of these projects—an animated feature written and directed by Garth Jennings, who was responsible (alongside frequent creative partner Nick Goldsmith) for some of the more unforgettable videos in recent memory—bands such as Radiohead, Blur, Pulp, Badly Drawn Boy, Beck, Hot Chip, Supergrass, R.E.M.—as well as big-screen vehicles "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "Son of Rambow." Color us intrigued.

It’s hard to be angry or surprised anymore about any project greenlit in Hollywood these days, especially after getting a “Spider-Man” reboot five years after the very financially successful (if not critically) third Sam Raimi film. Nothing is sacred or above reproach to the studios, not if there’s money to be made. And so this is how end up in a world where someone is developing a CG-animated take on Dr. Seuss’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
