Lupita Nyong’o-Voiced ‘The Wild Robot’ Shifts September Release Date

Lupita Nyong’o-Voiced ‘The Wild Robot’ Shifts September Release Date

DreamWorks Animation’s September event movie The Wild Robot is tweaking its release pans. The family film will now open in theaters on Sept. 27, 2024, instead of a week earlier on Sept. 20. The move gives Wild Robot some distance from Paramount’s animated Transformers One, which moved to the Sept. 20 date earlier this week. The DreamWorks Animation film, from director Chris Sanders and starring the voice of Lupita Nyong’o, follows the journey of a robot named ROZZUM unit 7134 — “Roz” for short — that is shipwrecked on an uninhabited island and must learn to adapt to the harsh surroundings. She gradually, however, forms friendships with the animals on the island and cares for an orphaned baby goose. The Wild Robot is based on Peter Brown’s book of the same name, an illustrated middle-grade novel first published in 2016 that became a literary phenomenon and rocketed to No. 1 on The New York Times bestseller list. The book has since inspired a trilogy that now includes The Wild Robot Escapes and The Wild Robot Protects. The movie adaptation’s …

Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong’o Pack on the PDA During Mexico Getaway

Joshua Jackson and Lupita Nyong’o are taking their relationship to a new level — one that includes tons of PDA and a beach vacation.  Photos taken over the weekend and published by E!

Lupita Nyong’o braves the alien apocalypse in ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ trailer

Lupita Nyong’o braves the alien apocalypse in ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ trailer

A Quiet Place introduced us to a world where making sound was a death sentence. In the upcoming A Quiet Place: Day One, we get to see how that apocalyptic future came to be. For this prequel, director Michael Sarnoski takes the reins from A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II director John Krasinski, who still helped with Day One‘s story. Based on the film’s first trailer, the invasion of A Quiet Place‘s sound-sensitive aliens comes seemingly out of nowhere. Everything is business as usual on the streets of New York City until meteor fragments rain from the sky, bringing hostile life forms with them. In the fallout, we follow a crew of survivors — played by Lupita Nyong’o, carrying a very brave cat; Joseph Quinn, Stranger Things‘ own Eddie Munson; and Djimon Hounsou, reprising his role from A Quiet Place Part II — as they brave abandoned subway tunnels and collapsing skyscrapers. Here’s hoping they’re quiet enough to make it out of New York City alive. A Quiet Place: Day One opens …
