Once a year, a trailer comes along that absorbs you from the first frame to the last. Whether it was its cinematography, color palette, CGI or story line, or maybe a fusion of all the aforementioned, you have just witnessed something special. Comic actor, now turned director, Ben Stiller releases The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and its first trailer is to be sensorially engulfed. I almost feel like I saw an art exhibition, not a trailer. Then again… isn’t film art?Read More
It was just a matter of time before Hollywood made Charlie Brown into a film franchise. It is now officially happening. According to Deadline.com, Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Ice Age makers Blue Sky Studios will release PEANUTS the film on November 25, 2015. That date commemorates the 65th anniversary of the comic strip, and the 50th anniversary of the TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas.
For now, all that is being reported is that it will be an animation and not a live-action film like The Flintstones were. At some point, the discussion will be about who the kid voices will be – will they be unknowns or stars like Elle Fanning or Joel Courtney.
The screenplay will be written by Craig Schulz and Bryan Schulz son and grandson of Charles Schulz.
Peanuts is read daily by 355 million people in 75 countries, and has previously been adapted into TV episodes and specials.
The first full official trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln is now out.
Based on the book from Doris Kearns Goodwin’s non-fiction best-seller “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln,” Spielberg gets back behind the camera to direct two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President Abraham Lincoln’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
Liam Neeson spent several years attached to reunite with his Schindler’s List director on the project, but took a pass in 2010. Pulitzer Prize-winner Tony Kushner handled scripting duties on Lincoln, reuniting him with Spielberg after their previous historical drama collaboration on Munich. Kushner’s capacity for crafting eloquent dialogue should befit the conversation-heavy proceedings in Lincoln; his screenplay also shouldn’t suffer from the same problems as other biographies more sprawling in scope, such as Clint Eastwood’s (clunky) J. Edgar.
This is the second Lincoln movie this year, similar to what Snow White went through. Spielberg elaborated on that idea, saying:“Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition… [We begin with] Lincoln’s realization that the Emancipation Proclamation, the thing he is most known for, was simply a war powers act that would easily be struck down by any number of lawyers after the cessation of hostilities after the Civil War. He needed to abolish slavery by constitutional measure — and that’s where we start.”
Lincoln stars Oscar-winners Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph-Gordon Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck.), John Hawkes (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Jared Harris (Mad Men), Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies), Walton Goggins (Justified), James Spader (Boston Legal), and Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man).
Lincoln begins a limited U.S. theatrical release on November 9th, 2012 (it opens wider on the 16th).
Finally! 3 years since its release on December 18th, 2009, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced this morning that James Cameron’s Avatar will arrive as a “Collector’s Edition” Blu-ray 3D on October 15 globally and in North America on October 16. Three years to wait for a 3D bluray?? Nuts.
“3D television is the future of home entertainment,” said Cameron, “I’m a huge proponent of the technology and very pleased that ‘Avatar’ can be viewed in the living room the way it is meant to be seen.”
“As the number of homes with 3D televisions continues to grow, we thought it was important to bring the biggest 3D film ever right into your living room,” continued producer Jon Landau, “This is the only way fans should experience the world of Pandora and this release offers the highest picture quality possible.”
Previously only available to consumers through an exclusive deal with Panasonic, the two-disc Avatar 3D Blu-ray Collector’s Edition will feature the original theatrical release and be available in all-new collectible packaging. Seen by more than 310 million people worldwide, the Oscar and Golden Globe winning epic is the highest-grossing film of all time, taking in more than $2.7 billion in worldwide box office. It is also top-selling Blu-ray disc of all time.
Dominican actress Zoe Saldaña who played Neytiri in the movie, is on the cover of the 3D Blu-ray movie.
For anyone who has rebuked mainstream America for not giving Latinos opoortunities to showcase their talents, then how do you explain Gerardo Naranjo? Yeah, I know what you’re saying… “a good agent and being Hispanic is in vogue.” You might be right, but it’s happening. It’s becoming an American reality, an a normalcy we need to get used to.
According to Deadline.com, 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment are negotiating with Gerardo Naranjo to direct The Mountain Between Us, an adaptation of the Charles Martin novel.
For those of you who don’t know who Gerado Naranjo, he’s coming off Miss Bala, Mexico’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar submission. It is executive produced by Mexican heavyweights Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna and tells the story of Laura, a young woman whose aspirations of becoming a beauty queen turn against her, delivering her into the hands of a gang that’s terrorizing northern Mexico. Although Laura succeeds in winning the beauty queen crown, her experiences as an unwilling participant in Mexico’s violent war leave her shaken and transformed.
From what we understand, The Mountain Between Us, is adapted by J. Mills Goodloe, and is both a harrowing tale of survival and a love story. Ashley is a writer catching a flight from Salt Lake City and heading East for her wedding. Ben is a doctor returning from a medical conference. When a their flight is cancelled due to a broken de-icer, the strangers agree to charter a ride, only to see the pilot suffer a heart attack and crash into a desolate snowy mountain region. He breaks ribs and she suffers a leg fracture. Fortunately, aside from a doctor he’s an avid climber, and as he struggles to get her down from the mountain in harsh weather, she begins to realize that maybe she was headed to marry the wrong guy.
How will Naranjo fair in his debut? Only time will tell, but we’re rooting for him to establish a reputation of quality work worthy of awards.
