John Carter - Exclusive Ten Minute Scene

From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.

Why You Should See “Real Steel” this Weekend – Review – No Spoilers

We’ve been sharing clips of the movie “Real Steel” along with photos from Comic-Con and other red carpet events (more below) with you, our readers not because we are pretty excited about this movie.

First, personally speaking, I’ve never been disappointed by any movie that Hugh Jackman is in. But, when you start seeing the clips coming out and like the story, you start getting excited about going to the movies and knowing that you won’t be disappointed. With that said, we’ve done a double duty here with coverage of the movie – now in theatres today and a review from one of our staff, who maybe isn’t the “target” audience… not a mother, father or single woman swooning over Hugh Jackman. The following review is from a twenty-something male who is a gamer, producer, and has been in front of the screen and behind it (yeah, card carrying SAG member), who has a love for all things movies (and TV) and is someone that I’ve been collaborating with for as long as he’s been able to share “what’s your favorite part” of this movie with me.

“First let me say that Shawn Levy is no Michael Bay, where as Bay would have taken a script for a ‘Robot Boxing Movie’ for what is is at face value. The rainy day favorite of my youth ‘Rock’em Sock’em Robots’ with Sylvester Stallone’s “Over The Top” – You remember, the one where Sly is a truck driver and makes cash on the side being the greatest arm wrestler this side of the Mississppi, then gets a telegram saying some woman he knocked up died, and he’s got to come get the kid he abandoned to keep his truck driving life style, while the kid’s mother’s family desperately wants to raise the kid, and the dad is enough of a dirtbag to sell his child to the other side of the family? well, it’s that. even for the same amount of money, $100k. ‘Over The Top’ came out in 1987, when $100k was A LOT of money. Real Steel takes place in 202X, where $100k is still apparently a crap load of cash, i guess the economy never really recovers. Which, once you get past the rehashed story, that’s where the beauty of the movie is. the little details of what tomorrow may bring. Which, looks a lot like today, aside from some teasing angles of a Cadillac Sixteen (google that, you’ll thank me), a Nokia future phone, HP acrylic & LED displays, and Virgin & Bing having their own stadiums in Detroit and New York, respectively. None of that seemed that far out of place (except the Cadillac Sixteen) all that is pretty much tomorrow tech- there were no flying cars, teleportation, or iPhone brain implants- all the technology was reasonably accessible*. Except, shall i not forget the eight to eleven foot tall ambulatory fighting robots. 

In my screening, Danny Elfman’s score had most of the audience in his hand, cheering and gasping as if he were in the room conducting them. They were involved. The movie was, to them, much more than Hugh Jackman eating Thomas Jane’s lunch (Tom wasn’t in the movie, but you say ‘i want my kids back’ i see Tom Jane). It was more than a hokey advertisement for a crappy childhood game that was impossible to put away. It had the fervor of a Holyfield match with BattleBots. The explanation of why Robot Boxing was cool was a throw away line from Hugh, but the understated stuff is what made the movie work for me. When really, there was nothing new brought to the table. Other than the lack of kitsch.

Rating: Better than expected (reblogged)

Here are some interesting behind the scenes facts about the movie that you can share with your friends to show you are really in the know:

  • Sugar Ray Leonard was the film’s boxing consultant and trained Hugh Jackman for his appearance in the ring
  • Costume designer Marlene Stewart created a retro wardrobe for Hugh Jackman’s character Charlie inspired by looks the rugged Americana looks from the 1960s
  • Dreamworks used motion-capture technology and practical-built, full-scale robots to film the robot boxing scenes. The motion-capture elements were performed and shot on a stage in Los Angeles ahead of time and the fighters were put in the ring wearing data-capturing jumpsuits and then their motions were converted into robot avatars on the computer and then instantaneously appeared on the monitors on set. Then, later during principal photography, the filmmakers lined up their cameras on an empty ring and the motion-capture data streamed through their cameras, allowing them to watch and frame the robot fighting in the ring in real time
  • Each of the robots each have a distinctive look, personality and color scheme and range in size from 7’6” to 8’5” in height

Eddie Murphy Confirmed to Host the 84th Academy Awards

Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy

I’ve always loved Eddie Murphy – through good and bad. From Saturday Night Live to his many movies from Beverly Hills Cop, 24 Hrs, Nutty Professor, stand-up comedy, music and to his upcoming movie Tower Heist.

From music to standup to action, Eddie has entertained us on TV, movies and live on stage and got a 2006 Oscar nomination for “Dreamgirls” for a supporting actor role (see clip below).

We’re excited to see what he brings to the 84th Academy Awards show.

 

… from the official press release: Murphy began his career at the age of 15 as a stand-up comedian. In 1980, at the age of 19, he joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live,” becoming the show’s youngest cast member to that point, and bringing to life many of the show’s most memorable  characters. His 1983 album “Eddie Murphy: Comedian” won a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Recording. It included portions of his groundbreaking HBO special “Eddie Murphy Delirious.”  In 1987, “Eddie Murphy Raw” was theatrically released and went on to gross over $50 million. Murphy made his feature film debut in 1982 with the classic “48 Hrs.” and would go on to star in such box-office hits as “Beverly Hills Cop” and the “The Nutty Professor” and “Shrek” franchises. All told, movies in which he has performed have earned in excess of $7 billion worldwide during their theatrical releases.

 

Save the date

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented on Sunday, February 26, 2012, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.

Brave – a new Animated Action Adventure Comedy from Disney Pixar

Meet Merida from Disney Pixar's Brave

Meet Merida from Disney Pixar's Brave

We received notice of this new animated feature coming (next summer) from Disney-Pixar and thought we’d share it with you. First, because it features the character “Merida” who is a skilled archer and daughter of the King and second because it looks like another one of those animated films that remind you of childhood and living vicariously through the characters of the stories your parents read to you at night. Here’s a sneak peek…

More about BRAVE:

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Disney Pixar's Brave

Disney Pixar's Brave

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

Directed by Mark Andrews (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “John Carter”) and Brenda Chapman (“The Lion King,” “Prince of Egypt”), and produced by Katherine Sarafian (“Lifted,” “The Incredibles”), “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

Voice Talent:                 Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane

Directors:                      Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman

Producer:                      Katherine Sarafian
