    Sony Pictures takes an animated leap - Los Angeles Times 9/11/06

    Sony Pictures Takes an Animated Leap

    "Open Season" will mark the studio's entry into computer-aided movies. Some fear a genre glut.

    After a decade of creating digital characters for such live-action movies as "Spider-Man" and "Stuart Little," Sony Pictures Entertainment is drawing on a new electronic canvas.

    On Sept. 29, the company will formally plunge into the crowded world of computer-animated features when it premieres the first of four movies, "Open Season." The comedy, featuring the voices of actors Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher, chronicles a ragtag pack of animals turning the tables on a group of hunters.

    Much is riding on the movie. Sony plans to spend more than $320 million for the four pictures.

    So, do the two Final Fantasy movies not count because they were made by Square? Or are they forgetting that those two were released by Sony Pictures?

    Please. The real question is:
    If it's really 'Final Fantasy', shouldn't there have been only one in the first place?


    For Sony Pictures, however, developing animated films comes with an added bonus: the company can continue sharpening its expertise in its key visual effects business while it develops films for the lucrative family market. This year it released "Monster House," which used technology that digitally captures the performances of actors.

    No... the real question is -- why is the Neverending Story only 102 minutes long?
