New images have been released for the animated film Epic and the raunchy comedy 21 and Over. Both films seem to loudly echo previous flicks. Epic seems to be very much following in the footsteps of FernGully: The Last Rainforest and Avatar where an outsider learns that the forest is important to people who live in a forest. As for 21 and Over, writer/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore have returned to the film that made them, The Hangover, with another story about how serious intoxication can lead to chaotic and hilarious consequences. Judging by the trailer, I’m hoping we get another surprisingly great college comedy like Van Wilder.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Epic opens in 3D on May 24, 2013 and features the voices of Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farrell, Jason Sudekis, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, and Johnny Knoxville. 21 and Over opens March 1, 2013 and stars Miles Teller, Skyler Astin, and Justin Chon.
Here’s the official synopsis for Epic:
EPIC is a 3D CG action-adventure comedy that reveals a hidden world unlike any other. From the creators of ICE AGE and RIO, EPIC tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and the forces of evil. When a teen age girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters in order to save their world…and ours.
Here’s the official synopsis for 21 and Over:
Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy.
