The Lorax Will Speak For The Trees…In Theaters! AND In 3-D!

Filed under: Film FlickersZac EfronBetty White

film version of the lorax coming soon to theaters in 3d

Dr. Seuss' classic story about The Lorax, a creature who speaks for the trees, is on its way to the big screen!

Sure, The Cat In The Hat is enjoyable, but REAL Dr. Seuss fans know that The Lorax is the good doctor's masterpiece.

The story revolves around a hairy little creature who stands on his tree-stump podium and tries to convince people not to destroy the forest.

The animation team putting this project together previously made Despicable Me and Horton Hears A Who, and they've got quite a cast of vocal talent on board!

Here are the AMAZING actors who will be lending their voices to The Lorax:

-Danny DeVito as The Lorax

-Ed Helms as The Once-ler (a greedy creature who chops down trees to make his "thneeds," which are "a thing everyone needs")

-Rob Riggle as O'Hare (an industrialist who exploits the polluted world and sells cans of fresh air)

-Zac Efron as Ted (a boy who searches for the "Once-ler" to learn how the world became ugly)

-Betty White as Ted's Grandmother (a woman who lived in the world when it was beautiful)

Here's what Danny DeVito has to say about the Lorax's message:

"Look, I don't want to be gruff about it, but we've got to wake up and smell the oil burning. I'm hoping that the squeakiest wheel gets the least grease."

More from DeVito:

"I feel sometimes the only way to get things done is shake people up a little bit, and the Lorax is not a guy who pussyfoots around. He's not a guy who uses kid gloves."

We hope everyone will check out this family movie/cautionary tale when it is released!

It's a wonderful and important story, and we couldn't be happier to hear that it's getting such a high profile theatrical release!

Did U grow up on The Lorax? Will U go see it when it's released?

Here we go again…

Despicable Me animator Illumination Entertainment is planning an adaptation of Curious George.

The last Curious George movie came out back in 2006 with Will Ferrell doing the voice for the Man with the Yellow Hat. As for this new version, "the wry animated images of Despicable Me" will be adapted to George's world.

We're not impressed.

Do U want to see a new Curious George movie?

Inception Tops The Box Office!

Chris Nolan's mind-bending thriller Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio took the top spot at the box office this weekend, raking in over $60 million!

Dan Fellman of Warner Bros. commented that Nolan is "a star for us. It's clear there's no kind of movie he can't make, and make well."

This is also proves that 2-D movies with a smart plot can still open to blockbuster numbers, which is good news for the movie industry. Imax's Greg Foster adds, "and people see Chris' movies more than once. We're not moving this out of theaters anytime soon."

And as for Leo, this is officially his best debut ever. It's already made more than 2008's Blood Diamond!

Despicable Me came in 2nd while The Sorcerer's Apprentice brought in a disappointing $17 million at 3rd place. Sucks for Nicolas Cage!

After being #1 at the box office for only one week, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was knocked off the top spot by Universal's Despicable Me with an impressive $60.1 million for its three-day opening.

The 3D animated feature was the big news this weekend as it exceeded expectations and had the biggest opening for an original animated movie not made by Pixar or DreamWorks Animation.

But don't worry about Eclipse, as it came in #2, raking in another $33.4 million, totaling the film's cumulative box office numbers to almost $250 million in the first 11 days of release.

Fox's Predators and Disney's Toy Story 3 came in third and fourth places.

Pretty impressive! What did U see this weekend?
