Birdbox Christmas Card

Birdbox Christmas Card

We’ve featured some great animations from Birdbox Studio, but their 2014 holiday card might be their crowning achievement – either it’s an awesome mechanized flipbook or an awesome bit of VFX trickery. Either way, it’s awesome.

asdfmovie: Deleted Scenes

Given how ridiculous TomSka’s offbeat asdfmovie animated series can be, we’re surprised any of it ever ended up on the cutting room floor. But here’s a few never-before-seen bits for us to SUDDENLY PINEAPPLES.

Despicable Me 2 (Trailer)

Despicable Me 2 (Trailer)

Gru and his minions encounter the Anti-Villain League in the follow up to the wildly popular and often hilarious original Despicable Me. We find it ironic that a family flick has its trailer backed by an Eminem track though.

There’s nothing to do but be amused here with Jason Steele’s goofy (and random) video about two really bored marshmallows, and the depths they will go to relieve their ennui. (Thanks Ryan!)

Dancing Russian Men

Dancing Russian Men

It’s not high-tech and fancy, but we highly recommend taking a minute and a half off from work to enjoy this charming animation by Peabo of Russian men cutting a rug. Fun. (Thanks Thomas!)

Toy Story 3: Meet Ken

Toy Story 3: Meet Ken

Might there be a touch of romance in the cards for Barbie as we meet the sophisticated Ken in the new trailer for Toy Story 3, due out in June? We think the blue leopard print shirt is a dealmaker.
