Irritated by Hugo Weaving‘s lack of regard for the Transformers movies, Michael Bay has chimed in on his always-entertaining website:

Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs?

With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t “artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? [...] What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job — let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America.

I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate.

Even when he’s being charitable, Michael Bay finds a way to seem like an ass. The problem here is that the quotes from Weaving regarding Megatron were misread. He wasn’t complaining about the job so much, he was speaking more to the point that he did the project for the money and feels bad about that. Not a criticism to the quality of the work, they just apparantly aren’t Weaving’s bag.

To make Bay’s stab at being a non-cock all the more cockish, Weaving is well-known to contribute to various charities. One of which is the ironically-named animal welfare group, Voiceless. So, yeah. You’re going to have to match those now, Michael Bay. Please let us all know when you do. (THR)

Well, if Cloud Atlas served as just another title in the pipeline of fanboy sci-fi films, this photo of Hugo Weaving donning four very distinct (and dare I say sexy?) looks should help the project graduate to the next level of realness in the minds of many readers.

Here he is:

The Wachowski brothers, who have written and are directing the film, have long said that the actors will play multiple characters in intersecting story lines, and this image should prove that they weren’t lying. I’m sure we can expect other collages soon, but bask in the glory of Weaving for now.

The post Review: Captain America: The First Avenger appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Captain America: The First Avenger is a fun origin story in the Spider-Man model. It’s got the heart of an underdog really experiencing the wonder of his new powers. I’m not saying it’s as good as Sam Raimi’s film, but I’ll take a solid copy of that over the likes of Thor or even the amusing Green Lantern.

The film spends a healthy first act on Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) as the digitally shrunken 90 lb. weakling. It establishes Rogers’ nobility and sincerity well so that you’re really proud of him when he becomes the super soldier, instead of resenting Evans for having such impressive abs.

'Captain America' Trailer: Still No Sympathy For Nazis

The ‘40s World War II setting does a lot to enhance the sense of wonder of a comic book movie. You really get to live in a fantasy world, with old New York City and a World’s Fair-esque Stark expo. The idea of Captain America first used as a marketing tool to sell war bonds makes the period really engaging. You get to see production numbers and the patriotism feels innocent when it’s WWII.

Supporting characters shine in this section too. Col. Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones) is hardass deadpan funny. Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) never overdoes it as a potential love interest. The movie never really allows Rogers to enjoy his new ladies man status, but at least Carter isn’t reduced to an object.

6 photosHayley Atwell

Meanwhile Johann Schmidt (Hugo Weaving) is so evil that the Nazis are too small time for him, so he starts his own Hydra party. Eventually we have to stop having fun so Rogers can rescue the troops Schmidt captured, expose him as Red Skull and fight bigger and badder opponents.

The action is actually not Captain America’s strong suit. A lot of it looks obviously green screen. I mean, when there are miles and miles of factory or warehouse behind them, I know they didn’t build that set. That makes a chase scene lack any feeling of distance. There are no knockdown, drag-out fights. Each confrontation has one gag that the enemy tries against Cap, and then he solves it.

It’s still fun to see the Steve Rogers we know is all heart finally get a body to match. His first foot chase through New York has the thrill of discovering his own strength, along with a few goofy jumps from car to car. A train sequence is well constructed, though still 50/50 fake looking. The montage really highlights all of Cap’s moves, and plenty of lame CG shots too, but it showcases his powers and there could be a whole other movie in those WWII missions.

I enjoyed the film overall, I’m just explaining why it’s not quite Spider-Man, or X-Men: First Class or even Iron Man. But if the fans of Iron Man can forgive a 15 minute flashback including a Powerpoint presentation of Stark family backstory, they should love Captain America equally, flaws and all.

We all talk about socking Adolf Hitler in the kisser, but Captain America actually does it. In this poster for Captain America: The First Avenger by artist Paolo Rivera, the superhero scores one for U.S.A. Only 100 of these cool throwback prints were given out at the Hero Complex Festival this past weekend, so you might be more likely to secure some Nazi gold. That doesn’t mean you should give up hope, though. Get out there and punch as many bigots as you come across. Chances are one of them is hiding a limited edition print under their jacket.

Captain America hits theaters July 22. Check out the poster below.

The upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger is coming out July 22nd, and in a novel move by the studio, posters are being released in order to promote it. These three are OK as posters go, but they’re kind of boring compared to, say, the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo poster from earlier today.

They’re character posters, featuring Captain America in one, his archenemy The Red Skull in another, and presumably Cap’s love interest Peggy Carter in the third. Enjoy, and bask in the patriotic glow of America’s Superhero and Germany‘s Nazi.

The Wachowskis have once again called upon Hugo Weaving because of his talent for playing a fuckload of dudes. However in Cloud Atlas, Weaving won’t play hundreds of the same guy. In a feat of Eddie Murphian-strength, the Red Skull will play six different characters in the film that follows six different storylines across time that tie into one another. We don’t know who Weaving will portray as of yet, but we do know that the storylines follow a 19th century notary on a Pacific expedition, a female journalist in 1970′s California, a clone in a futuristic dystopia, a bisexual musician in the 1930′s, a survivor in a post-apocalyptic world, and an aging publisher in present day London.

The film also stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Ben Whishaw, and Jim Broadbent. Each actor is also expected to play multiple roles. Man, that’s a lot of Burger King commemorative glasses to expect us to collect. (Filmonic)

As previously rumored, the two Hobbit movies from director Peter Jackson now have official titles. The first one will have the title The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, while part 2 will be known as The Hobbit: There and Back Again. As for release dates, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to come out on December 14, 2012, while The Hobbit: There and Back Again has a release date of about a year later on December 13, 2013.

In case you’re a little rusty on your Tolkien, both of these titles come from chapters of the book (“An Unexpected Party” and “There and Back Again”).  Now, since I don’t have anything else to say about these confirmed titles, here’s a massive list of the cast:

See Video Of Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ Being Made Before Your Very Eyes

Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, Richard Armitage, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas and Aidan Turner.

Whew! No wonder the movie is in two parts. (ComingSoon)

The Wachowskis‘s upcoming Cloud Atlas sounds like one of the biggest and most ambitious movies to be taken on by a major studio. It’s based on a novel by David Mitchell, and will be directed by both the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. In case you haven’t read what it’s about, here it is – and try to imagine what this is going to be like onscreen:

“Mitchell’s 2004 novel follows six storylines that include a 19th century American notary, a poor British musician in the 1930s, a journalist in 1970s California, a vanity press publisher in the early 21st century, a rebellious clone in the near future and a primitive Hawaiian tribesman surviving after the apocalypse. Each actor in the film will be playing multiple roles.”

This is either going to be amazing or terrible. Or, you know, somewhere in between. Anyway, Hugo Weaving has signed on, which is continuing his relationship with the Wachowskis through the Matrix trilogy and V for Vendetta. He’s joining Tom Hanks, along with Halle Berry and Ben Whishaw. So be sure to keep them in your thoughts – they definitely have their work cut out for them. (The Hollywood Reporter)

If news of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit filled you with a sense of dread that there simply wouldn’t be enough familiar characters with pointy ears to ease you back into Middle Earth, breathe a little easier. Ian McKellan, who is a Knight of the British Empire, and thus, reliable, has revealed on his blog that Hugo Weaving’s character Elrond in Tolkien’s epic. (This picture was taken on the set of The Hobbit.)

In the book, Elrond provides shelter for Bilbo and company during their journey, laying the groundwork for their friendship. The extent this scene will be spotlighted in the film in unknown, but expect more than a cameo.

This news follows Orlando Bloom‘s statement that his character, Legolas, will also make an appearance. No word on that front since early April.

During his blab-a-thon, McKellan also revealed that the first unit production will be taking break while Martin Freeman leaves the set to film three “Sherlock” episodes for televisions. Selfish, Martin. I’d expect better from you.

These announcements confirm two things: 1)Production on The Hobbit is in full swing down in New Zealand, and 2) Ian McKellan has kind of a big mouth for a Knight. If he gets on Twitter, I’m calling for another revolution. (Playlist)

Ever since it was revealed that the villain in Captain America: The First Avenger was The Red Skull, movie fans have been asking “what? Why is he called ‘The Red Skull’?” When Hugo Weaving was cast in the part, the truth remained obscure, as Hugo Weaving’s skull is covered by flesh and hair, and it presumably is of a normal bone-white color. Now, a new photo of the character from Entertainment Weekly clears this up once and for all. He’s called The Red Skull because his face and head is a red skull.

He’s a Nazi too, although I don’t see any swastikas on his shiny leather uniform. I’m never one to complain about a lack of swastikas, though. (via /Film)

Pics are flying out of the Captain America: The First Avenger cam faster than a deadly frisbee shield. However, this one isn’t an official leak. A website began selling Captain America movie Halloween costumes, which gives us an underwhelming (read: really shitty) first look at Cap’s nemesis Red Skull in full bad-suntan mode, portrayed in the upcoming film by Hugo Weaving. He looks like a ‘pumped’ New Jersey Devils fan or an angry, grown up “Inside Out Boy” from old school Nickelodeon.

Perhaps it’s unfair to judge a character’s look by its mass-market Halloween costume spin-off. This one doesn’t do Edward Cullen any favors. Unfortunately, this Red Skull isn’t the first laughable image of Captain America we’ve seen. If more images like these get hoisted up the flag pole, I don’t think too many people are gonna be saluting. (Collider)

A bane to all those who would live free from tyranny. A major dick." The negotiation process is currently underway, but is said to be in a delicate stage. Joe Johnston can't imagine anyone else in the role. "C'mon. Look at that forehead," he commented. "We won't even need prosthetics. It's going to save us hours in the makeup chair." (THR)

Hugo Weaving Phones in Megatron Voice http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hugo-weaving-phones-in-megatron-voice/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hugo-weaving-phones-in-megatron-voice/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 You can excuse any actor on the set of a Transformers film of phoning it in for a paycheck but in the case of Hugo Weaving, that's exactly what he did. In fact, the voice of Megatron has never met director Michael Bay."Michael Bay talks to me on the phone. I've never met him. We were doing the voice for the second one and I still hadn't seen the first one. I still didn't really know who the characters were and I didn't know what anything was."Well, I saw the movies and I still don't really know who the characters are or what anything is. My hope for the sequel is that everyone (robots included) wear name tags. And speaking of the sequel, from Weaving:"Oh no. They're not making another Transformers, are they?"My sentiments exactly.

You can excuse any actor on the set of a Transformers film of phoning it in for a paycheck but in the case of Hugo Weaving, that’s exactly what he did. In fact, the voice of Megatron has never met director Michael Bay.

"Michael Bay talks to me on the phone. I’ve never met him. We were doing the voice for the second one and I still hadn’t seen the first one. I still didn’t really know who the characters were and I didn’t know what anything was."

Well, I saw the movies and I still don’t really know who the characters are or what anything is. My hope for the sequel is that everyone (robots included) wear name tags. And speaking of the sequel, from Weaving:

"Oh no. They’re not making another Transformers, are they?"

My sentiments exactly. (from The Age)
