If ever there was a role that an actor was born to play, it’s likely Christoph Waltz as a Bond villain. He’s got the smarm, he’s got the gravity, and he’s definitely got the humor to cut the tension. He’s…perfect. So we can all get a little excited that, according to the Daily Mail, Waltz has all but signed on to play a villain who is a “complex” character.

Eh, normally I’m all for complex villains, but this is a Bond film with Christoph Waltz. Let’s not reinvent the wheel. I want an over the top caricature, and I want it…soon.

The next Bond is the untitled Bond 24, and was originally slated to have Chiwetel Ejiofor in it, but he dropped out as the villain, leaving this opportunity for Waltz. Daniel Craig will return as our dark hero.

Quentin Tarantino‘s next film will be a western. We already knew that. He’s saying it won’t be his second western because he considers Django Unchained a “southern.” Whatever. He’s the boss.

The western QT is currently in preproduction on will be called The Hateful Eight. If you noticed that could be a nod to The Magnificent Seven, an iconic western, congratulations, you earn an automatic C in my fake cinema history class. If you’re aware that The Magnificent Seven itself was a retelling of Kurosawa‘s The Seven Samurai, give yourself a C+.

Tarantino’s film will definitely star Christoph Waltz, and will probably star the other QT regulars you’re thinking of.

And that’s it. We don’t have any plot points yet, but those will come as Quentin goes about town, yapping as he so often does about Uma Thurman and…well, just Uma Thurman.

In news that’s sure to make Johnny Depp and his hats very, very sad, Tim Burton has announced a new film, and drafted several actors that don’t appear to be Johnny Depp. While one of the actors has long hair like Depp, and another is a man like Depp, it’s virtually certain that neither Amy Adams nor Christoph Waltz is Johnny Depp, which begs the questions, “Who the fuck does Tim Burton think he is? This is how he treats people he calls his friend?”

Big Eyes is the story of famed (I guess) painter Margaret Keane and her husband, Walter Keane and the couple’s rise to fame in the 50′s and 60′s. If you’re uncertain why Burton would take on such a project that isn’t cartoon-y or CGI…

Hold your goddamn horses and take a gander at Keane’s work. Right here.

Makes sense now, doesn’t it?

In a minute long spot for this holiday season’s bloodiest buddy comedy romp, we get a better look at the madcap adventures of Jamie Foxx‘s Django and Christoph Waltz‘s bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. That’s some pretty wacky gangland-style killing. We haven’t seen an Old West duo so mismatched since Shanghai Noon.

We also get a look at Samuel L. Jackson outfitted to resemble Latter Years Louis Armstrong. Sadly, he doesn’t even attempt to do the voice.

The post DiCaprio To Slave (Driver) Away For Tarantino’s ‘Django’? appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Though the possibility has gotten more remote, Will Smith could be returning to the wild wild west as the lead in Quentin Tarantino‘s new spaghetti western Django Unchained. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio is now in actual talks to play the lead villain. Between Tarantino, Smith and DiCaprio, that’d be one heckuva posse.

Leo’s All-Time Greatest Spazzouts

DiCaprio might play Calvin Candie, the ruthless Candyland ranch owner, who pits male slaves against one another in battles to the death and offers up the female slaves for sexual abuse. Man, that guy could use a big dose of vitamin comeuppance. Freed slave Django must come to his captive wife’s rescue. Smith is on the top of Tarantino’s list for Django, though Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba and Chris Tucker (really?) are also possibilities. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson are also expected to join the cast in major roles.

Tarantino almost nabbed DiCaprio for Landa in Inglorious Basterds, as the actor was interested in the role early on. The talks didn’t pan out that time, but perhaps second time’s a charm? (Deadline)

After Wild Wild West, I thought the Western genre put a restraining order on Will Smith. However, I’m told that such a thing is not possible, and that Smith may ride off into the sunset on a giant metal spider again… and for Quentin Tarantino, no less. Fluzzubah?

Django Unchained is Tarantino’s follow-up to Inglorious Basterds, a spaghetti Western about the team-up of a slave and a German bounty hunter, who search for the slave’s wife and together take on an evil plantation owner. Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz are apparently also in talks for major roles, as the house slave to the plantation villain and the bounty hunter, respectively. No surprises with those names. They’re regular Tarantino pal-arounds.

Though Smith is Tarantino’s top choice, no official deal has been made, and the money-factor could be a problem. Smith commands giant, novelty-sized checks for his movies, and rightfully so, as he’s one of the few stars today you can really bank on. Still, Tarantino would save money if he gets Smith’s “Willenium Package,” which includes his acting services, the acting services of his two children, and a radio-friendly end credits rap.

I bet there’s some furious number crunching going on in the Weinstein Co.’s accounting department right now. (Hollywood Reporter)

Quentin Tarantino likes to handwrite the title page of his screenplays. The good news is that it’s a neat thing to do. The bad news is anyone with a camera phone and a third grader’s handwriting can pretend-tweet to have an authentic Tarantino script. Damn you, information age.

Twitter user @agenttrainee twote the picture below, which is supposedly the cover page of Tarantino’s new western. Django Unchained sounds like a jazz album somebody recommended to be in college, but I never listened to. The film will definitely star Christoph Waltz and has been described as a spaghetti western. That much we know for sure, not that I don’t trust all news stories broken on Twitter. (/Film)

Review: Water For Elephants http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-water-for-elephants/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-water-for-elephants/#comments Thu, 21 Apr 2011 22:58:48 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=208116 Looks great, but feels just like all the other historical epic romances.

The post Review: Water For Elephants appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

Water for Elephants has great production value. It’s a period piece that takes you back to Depression era circus road shows like old time Hollywood productions. It’s also just like all the other historical epic romances. Coming of age, forbidden romance, oppressive older generation and present day bookends because nobody thinks they can just start the story in the past.

Jacob Jankowsky (Hal Hobrook and then Robert Pattinson) wanders up to a closed circus in present day and starts telling the story of how he remembered the great Benzini Bros. tragedy of 1931. Back in ’31, Jacob (Pattinson now) had everything going for him, about to graduate Cornell veterinary school, until his parents die in an automobile accident.

The banker is blatantly insensitive, criticizing Jacob’s generous father for helping people without pay. That’ll teach him to put a lien on his business for his son’s tuition. Jacob hops a train that happens to be the Benzini Brothers’. August (Christoph Waltz) gives Jacob a Training Day about the circus, only it’s over the course of the movie so it’s not really a Day.

August’s wife Marlena (Reese Witherspoon) is the star performer, an acrobat who works with the horse Silver Star. Jacob’s first act as circus vet is to put Silver Star down, so he bonds with Marlena over that heartbreak. Marlena already hates her husband, and rightfully so because he’s abusive, but it’s just artificially constructing a “forbidden” love. Except for a mutual affection for animals, Marlena and Jacob don’t have any real connection. They’re just there to be the romance.

Every theme in the movie is spelled out for you. The college boy has no real world experience. The boss works people and animals to death, literally. Did you forget the bookend with old Jacob? There’s a tragedy coming too.

To replace Silver Star, August buys Rosie the elephant. Rosie does some amazing stunts in one take, some with Witherspoon doing acrobatics herself. It’s just dressing up a domestic abuse story. August gets violent with Rosie and then cries apologetically. Jacob tries to save Marlena like she’s Rose in Titanic. Still, when Jacob threatens August’s life, I never for a moment believed he was going to go there.

By the time we see the tragic circus disaster, it’s revealed already in progress which is an interesting way to present it. Water for Elephants actually has the ending I wanted Titanic to have, but no, I never wanted it as saccharin as the final bookend makes it.

Summit has released the trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson’s new explosion-y take on Th Three Musketeers, which is in 3D, of course. It stars Logan Lerman as D’Artagnan, and Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson as the other three less diva-ish sword wielders. Couldn’t they just have remade this thing with Keifer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, and Chris O’Donnell, the cast of the 1993 version? Those guys could use the work. Plus Sheen needs to get his “Winning” phrase in a movie before it goes completely stale. Oh wait, too late on that already?

Universally beloved auteur Roman Polanski is at a place in his career where he can direct any project he wishes – provided it doesn’t require him to enter the United States. And so his next movie is a pretty unconventional choice: Carnage, a real-time drama about two sets of parents meeting at dinner to discuss the fight their children got into at school. If you’re not already excited about the movie – here are the actors playing the 4 parts: Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz! Here’s one of the stars, Jodie Foster, with more on the movie:

“It all happens in real-time, so it’s about an hour and 45 minutes of negotiation between two sets of parents and how it all falls apart. Kind of like ‘Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?,’ but a little funnier. There’s a lot of wit.”

Sounds pretty good, right? Almost good enough to make you forget about Polanski’s, uh, hobbies. Anyway, here are three set photos from the film, which you can look at in either righteous anger, eager anticipation, or both. (via The Playlist)

The post Review: The Green Hornet appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The Green Hornet is as good as any Green Hornet movie could probably be, which is to say he’s not a very interesting superhero. He owns a newspaper and his sidekick is a martial artist? That leaves a lot more room for Seth Rogen to play than maybe a character with more definition, but the superhero blockbuster as an art film doesn’t really work.

It’s actually when Britt Reid (Rogen) become The Green Hornet that the movie falls apart. Before that, the story of an antisocial rich kid has an edgy attitude, even if it only manifests in a PG-13 drunken party. Finding out his dad (Tom Wilkinson) died on the news in his limo is effectively dramatic. Christoph Waltz looks great as Chudnofsky with a goatee, a Caesar cut and a double barreled gun.

Reid becomes a total dufus, doing happy dances to celebrate victories. He never shuts up during an action scene and often just states what’s happening to him. Reid’s interview with Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz) is just weird, perhaps an uncomfortable bit of failed improv, and he’s always babbling at her. The Spy Kids were more mature.

I get the attempt to deconstruct the hero/sidekick relationship but it’s really forced. Reid would be insecure that Kato (Jay Chou) is such a badass, but he’s just whiny about it. Kato’s issues with being a servant as his cover are better played but still come out of nowhere. Reid’s analysis of superhero movies is pure Rogen. He’s wrong about all movie heroes being good guys though. Spider-Man and Batman always have trouble with PR.

By the time Kato and Reid are reall fighting, it becomes cartoon slapstick with bouncy sound effects. The gas gun bit is funny, but then Reid is still going totally gaga over Lenore like she’s the only one who can save his newspaper. This is a secretary with little journalism experience. There is plenty of people way more qualified for the job, and I bet some of them are also hot too.

The action is pretty awesome. If they’d have just done a straight generic plot with these action scenes they would have had a solid movie. Kato-vision basically alters perspective, time and physics at the same time. The climax in The Daily Sentinel is thrilling. Then there’s more silly comedy epilogue.

The 3-D looks fine. There are some good shots of the Reid mansion and roses coming into focus, plus more abstract Michel Gondry shots towards the end. There’s also a lot of blurry background from the post conversion process. Anything CGI, like flying bottle caps or missiles, can come out of the screen pretty easily.

Ultimately The Green Hornet is as troubled as its many delays would indicate. You know, superhero comedy is tricky. They can’t all be Blankman.

The film tells the story of an old-timey circus and some dude (Pattinson) who is in love with an elephant (Witherspoon). At least that’s what I assume, since I didn’t actually watch the trailer. I’ve been afraid of the circus ever since my parents sold me to one. Wait, a circus is a warehouse where you sew fake Prada handbags, right? Oh. Well just watch this trailer, anyway.

Apparently, the Green Hornet’s trusty sidekick, Kato, has the ability to see things in super-slow motion. This allows him a distinct advantage when fighting villains. I’m not sure if all Asians have this power, or just Kato. Either way, Panda Express has seen the last of me.

The Green Hornet buzzes into theaters January 14.

Waltz hasn't indicated that he's interested. However, he did agree to star in Paul W. S. Anderson's Three Musketeers, so it's not like he's picky. Whether Waltz is sought for the role of the Lizard or Green Goblin is unclear as of right now. Perhaps he's a method actor and got lost in his Basterds' Jew Hunter role. Y'know, you see the name "Spiderman" on paper and you just kinda assume. (The Playlist)

Matt Damon Goes to Great Lengths For Ballerina Sex in ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/matt-damon-goes-to-great-lengths-for-ballerina-sex-in-the-adjustment-bureau-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/matt-damon-goes-to-great-lengths-for-ballerina-sex-in-the-adjustment-bureau-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Welcome to your hangover. The Adjustment Bureau is bringing Philip K. Dick back to the big screen, and in more of a Blade Runner way than a Paycheck way. Matt Damon plays an ambitious politician on the brink of winning a U.S. Senate seat when he meets ballet dancer Emily Blunt. Then sh*t gets unreal. Just as he's realizing he's falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart. The motley crew known as The Adjustment Bureau is led by Roger Sterling of "Mad Men," and it's my asumption that when they're not determining people's fates they're aligning spines in their unstuffy chiropractic practice. It's the place right by the Baskin Robbins. Park on Oak though, there are never any spots on Main. Check out the trailer after the jump. The Adjustment Bureau has orchestrated its release for September 17, 2010.

From Nazi to Frenchman: Christoph Waltz to Star in ‘Three Musketeers’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/from-nazi-to-frenchman-christoph-waltz-to-star-in-three-musketeers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/from-nazi-to-frenchman-christoph-waltz-to-star-in-three-musketeers/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Back in 1940, all it took to turn a Frenchman into a Nazi was a few dozen Panzers and the promise of an adequate wine ration. In 2010, all it takes to turn a Nazi into a Frenchman is a few million dollars and director Paul W.S. Anderson.Christoph Waltz, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Colonel Hans Landa (a.k.a. The Jew Hunter) in Inglourious Basterds, has signed on to play Cardinal Richelieu in the upcoming Three Musketeers film. Waltz joins a heavily European cast including Mads Mikkelsen and Milla Jovovich.According to FirstShowing.net, the film will be presented in 3-D. Anderson's version of the classic tale is also "going for a contemporary feel without moving the story from the traditional period setting." I'm assuming that means that the characters will say words like "s**t" and "sexting" while still wearing pantaloons.
