Interview: Danny Boyle

Monday, November 1 by

Danny Boyle’s latest film is getting a lot of buzz, but not for the heartwarming triumph over adversity. It’s got that, but what people are focusing on is a dude cutting his arm off. 127 Hours is the Aron Ralston story. James Franco plays Ralston, an outdoorsman who gets trapped with his arm pinned under a rock. His escape by self-amputation was documented before, but Boyle’s film makes it visceral.

John Carpenter Will Direct ‘Darkchylde’

Monday, November 1 by

While his movies are being remade left and right (except for Vampires), John Carpenter is only looking forward. The horror great has signed on to direct an adaptation of the comic book Darkchylde. The story follows a girl named Ariel Chylde who often transforms into the monsters of her nightmares.
The film has been in the works for some time and now is gaining traction. WETA created a test video to present how a Darkchylde film should look and feel. It's a pretty cool concept and with Carpenter at the helm, there's room to really push the special effects envelope. Could be awesome. Or it could turn out like Vampires. (/Film)

First Look At ‘Tintin.’ Kinda Sorta.

Sunday, October 31 by

Here's something special for fans of slow torture. Empire has the first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's joint effort The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. And they're revealing it really effing slowly. The plan is to release a full image of Peter Jackson and WETA's postwork this week, but in the meantime, snippets of the image are being teased every few hours. 
Currently, ten of twelve close-up images have been revealed but they give you a good idea of what the film's texture and realism. So, if you've ever wanted to see Tintin's Adam's Apple up close in an ornate frame, brother, I've got a treat for you.

Winner of the Best ‘Saw’ Trap of All Time

Saturday, October 30 by

You all voted in the Best Saw Trap of All Time survey, and the winner is…
THE NEEDLE PIT!

Clearly most of you have a crippling fear of hypodermic needles, as the needle pit won with an impressive 25% of the vote. I heard an interview on the radio the other day with Tobin Bell, who plays John Kramer/Jigsaw in the Saw films, and when asked what his favorite trap was, he also said the needle pit. Such a simple trap, yet it's the most disturbing. Makes you think about the human condition, doesn't it, boys and girls? Now let's all go out and donate some blood!

Zach Galifiankis Smokes Joint on ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’

Saturday, October 30 by

Last night, Zach Galifiankis appeared on "Real Time with Bill Maher" and made a very strong point about the legalization of marjiuana by sparking a doobie on live TV. None of the other guests would indulge, nor would Maher, which must have taken a huge amount of retraint for the weed-loving host. All of you prudes out there, if you take nothing else away from this video, remember this: smoking grass does not make you see dragons.

Roland Emmerich Shooting Low Budget Alien Invasion Flick

Friday, October 29 by

He comes in peace.
And here you thought Roland Emmerich couldn't settle for anything less than epic. The director, who in Independence Day and 2012 destroyed the land we love so much, is prepping The Zone, and alien invasion movie he'll make with a $5 million budget. No plot details are known but it will take the "found footage" approach and be improv-based with a cast of relative unknowns, much like Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity.
Shooting begins in mid-November off a script by French writer-director Guillaume Tunzini. Considering the budget for The Zone is what Emmerich usually spends on his craft services strudel supply, it'll be interesting to see what he cranks out. No demolishing famous landmarks this time around. The best he'll get is a modest ranch home with not too much surrounding land to scorch. (THR)

Johnny Depp Offered Lead In ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’

Friday, October 29 by

With Tom Hardy's dance card being full doing awesome movies like The Dark Knight Rises and paycheck movies like This Means War, he won't be able to take the lead role in Snow White And The Huntsman as rumored. Which is okay because an official offer didn't go out to him.
Johnny Depp is being courted for the role of the Huntsman, who goes against orders to kill Snow White and instead trains her to fight and survive. Dude, if I were the Evil Queen, I'd seriously dock his pay for that. He had ONE task! This is all contingent on whether Tim Burton decides to do Dark Shadows or not. It's a well-known fact that Tim Burton owns Johnny Depp. He stores him in a case next to Bela Lugosi's fingernail clippings.
Nobody has been cast as Snow White yet. It's reported that the producers want a fresh face for this. But how cool would it be if the leads went to Natalie Portman and Jean Reno? (The Wrap)

Shia Looks Hopped Up In ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ Behind the Scenes

Friday, October 29 by

Back away slowly, Mark.
Entertainment Tonight visited the set of Transformers: Dark of the Moon in Chicago in the very excited way that ET visits things. Star Shia LeBeouf was either playing along with the amped up enthusiasm, or he's been dipping into the booger sugar between takes. I realize he's a passionate guy and all, but something feels a little…twitchy about his demeanor.
ET also interviews newbie female lead Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who at least to me, doesn't seem to have the same "Damn, who is that hot-ass girl?!" appeal as Megan Fox. Spielberg liked her though, so what the hell do I know. I'm sure she's a better actor than Fox. Shit, Michael Bay's a better actor than Fox. And speaking of Michael Bay, ET gets him on record saying James Cameron shot Avatar like a little bitch. He doesn't use those exact words, but it's pretty obvious he poo-poos green screen.

Collin Farrell Is A Gangster In Love In ‘London Boulevard’ Trailer

Friday, October 29 by

Okay. Here it is. The trailer for William Monahan's first go behind the camera, London Boulevard. Colin Farrell stars as a gangster who falls in love with with a starlet played by Keira Knightley. What a perfect match. Who better for a media target to get involved with than a guy who can kick the sh*t out of TMZ. Make an example by breaking a few of their necks, and they'll let you walk through LAX unencumbered.
Of course, it's not all sunshine, lollipops, and neck-snaps. The sucky part of being a gangster means you need to kill all of your co-workers before you can shift careers, otherwise they'll try to interfere with your future happiness like a bunch of dicks. That's what Ray Winstone is up to when he shows up dressed like Royal Tenenbaum. Does two weeks notice mean nothing overseas?
