The Animated Arena’s Latest Addition

Walt Disney once said, “You’re dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.” Studio executives clearly supported this theory, at least during the summer of 2013, where animation for kids and “Grown Ups 2” has found a profitable, happy home. The latest animated story for big and little kids hits movie theaters this weekend at “Turbo” speed. Will a speedy snail, with the help of Ryan Reynolds, outpace the students at “Monsters University” or the minions shouting “Despicable Me 2” the annoyance of their capable competition? Are our favorite “Grown Ups” gearing up for another successful weekend? With success also comes disappointment, as we find the “Lone Ranger” still struggling to find bigger crowds to deflate his feelings of LONEliness.
Will “Red 2,” with lonely-no-more Bruce Willis and new addition Anthony Hopkins in action-oriented mode, feel “The Heat” reserved for cool characters? The always-cool Kristen Wiig, meanwhile, strives to become “The Girl Most Likely” to hog the box-office limelight. On a totally unrelated film note, Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds are bringing their bizarre beings to the “R.I.P.D” (Rest in Peace Department).
It’s a supernatural weekend at the movies!
From seaside days to starry nights, the Grown up land of thrills, chills and family-friendly films filled with childlike wonder lives on at the local multiplex all summer long…
