Today's Challenge: Gnomeo and Juliet and I Am Number Four are both released today for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray. Can you find a link to connect these two new releases?
Our first Facebook movie game, ClusterFlick, plays off that old "six degrees of separation" theory — you know, the one that has a certain Kevin at the center of the Hollywood universe. It's easy to play, but not so easy to win. The goal is to use the major cast of movies to get from Point A to Point B in the smallest number of moves.

"Shakespeare with lawn ornaments turns out to be an unexpectedly winning proposition..."— Justin Chang, Variety
"For adults, Gnomeo & Juliet lacks wit, but the gnomes, artfully chipped and scratched, have a nifty 3-D tactility, and the title duo makes for an off-kilter pair of romantic action figures."— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...like watching an over-extended sketch. The first few minutes make you laugh. The next bring a slight smile. The rest of the time you are silent, the joke and the accompanying freshness having long gone stale."— Bill Gibron, filmcritic.com
"...looks like an assembly line of parts from better film ... yet the film manages to create a unique mixture of whimsy, heartache, and tenderness that transcends its familiar structure."— Glenn Heath Jr., Slant Magazine
"Rewatching The Lion King is a much better idea than wasting time in this animated gnome-man's land."— Claudia Puig, USA Today
A new preview clip has been released from director Kelly Asbury's (Shrek 2) upcoming 3-D CG-animated movie, Gnomeo and Juliet, Touchstone Pictures' first G-rated family movie opening nationwide tomorrow. Loosely based on William Shakespeare's classic play about star-crossed lovers, Gnomeo and Juliet tells the story of two garden gnomes (voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt) from neighboring yards who fall in love despite the wishes of their respective garden gnome clans, the "Blues" and the "Reds."
The new clip focuses on another one of the gnomes involved in the quarrel between the clans, Tybalt (Jason Statham), a curmudgeon of a gnome from Juliet's clan previously seen in a clip involving lawnmower racing. watch the Gnomeo and Juliet music video >> Posted 02.10.11 by BrentJS

A new preview clip from director Kelly Asbury's (Shrek 2) upcoming 3-D CG-animated movie, Gnomeo and Juliet, joins the pair of new clips recently released by Touchstone Pictures. Gnomeo and Juliet tells the story of William Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers from the perspective of a pair of adventurous garden gnomes (voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt) from neighboring yards. Previous clips have focused on the love story at the heart of the movie and on the parallels between it and Shakespeare's classic play, but this new clip reveals that there is plenty of fun and adventure to be had as well, as Gnomeo and Tybalt (Jason Statham) race down the alley on a pair of souped-up lawnmowers. watch the clip >> Posted 01.24.11 by BrentJS
Much of the recent movie news involving actor James McAvoy has centered around his portrayal of the classic Marvel Comics character Charles "Prof. X" Xavier in director Matthew Vaughn's upcoming X-Men trilogy prequel, X-Men: First Class. But, before McAvoy will be using his mind-bending powers as the founder of a school for gifted youngsters (aka mutants) on screen, he will be lending his voice to a little blue garden gnome in Touchstone's 3-D CG-animated movie Gnomeo and Juliet, a modern retelling of Shakespeare's classic tale about two star-crossed lovers. Touchstone recently released two new preview clips from the movie and, in a recent interview with Collider, McAvoy discussed finding his voice for the role and the difficulty of making a movie for kids that is based on a story about sex and suicide. hear from McAvoy about the movie and watch 2 new preview clips >> Posted 01.23.11 by BrentJS
