Today's Challenge: Hoodwinked Too! opened this weekend, and it's the second movie this year to feature fairytale character Little Red Riding Hood. Can you find a movie link to connect Hoodwinked's Hayden Panettiere to Red Riding Hood's Amanda Seyfried?
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.

It's been a long, brutal winter in most parts of the country, so it's no surprise that even Hollywood is looking to get a jump on summer. The rollout of blockbuster movies starts this Friday, a full month before the Memorial Day Weekend.
As you'd expect (and hope), the mix of movies being offered up is heavy on the Action/Adventure movies (11) and Comedies (10). There's also plenty of offerings for Kids/Families (8). What's new this year is the addition of more R-rated comedies, thanks in no small measure to The Hangover's runaway success two summers back. Along with it's sequel, see what else is playing this summer — complete with trailers and photo galleries.

Back in December, we reported that the Weinstein Company had delayed the release of Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs. Evil. Originally scheduled for a January 15 release, the movie was pushed back for "animation tweaks" and to give the studio time to finalize a "marketing deal with a fast-food chain."
Well, we may not know the new release date, but the fast-food chain is no longer in question. Right now, Burger King is advertising Hoodwinked Too toys in TV commercials and on it's website, where it also has a "Fabled Forest Sleuth" game.
So while we don't have a poster or trailer to share with you at this time, we can tell you that five returning characters are featured — Power Kick Red, Beam Hoppin' Granny, Fast Talkin' Twitchy, Cart Wheelin' Woodsmen, and Wheelie Ridin' Wolf — and that they are called into action when Hansel and Gretel go missing.

The Weinstein Company has delayed the release of Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs. Evil. Originally set to debut on January 15, 2010, the Red Ridinghood caper has now been given a more vague date of February at the earliest.
Always the strategists, the Weinsteins have decided to spend their money on a major campaign for Youth in Revolt, which opens January 8 and stars Michael Cera as every character he has ever played. The LA Times article also states the delay will give them more time to tweak the animation and possibly secure a fast-food tie in.
All this speculation around the movie's release really begs one question: They're making a sequel to Hoodwinked? Posted 12.30.09 by reelz
