The Smurfs – First look at Hank Azaria as Gargamel

Posted by LiveFor on May 1, 2010

Smurfin’ Hell! Still not excited about a Smurf’s film, but I think the kids will love it. They seem to have the look right for it so far.

In the 3D August 3, 2011 release, the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village and they tumble from their magical world into ours – in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.

The cast includes Neil Patrick Harris (Johan), Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara (Odile-Johan’s wife), Anton Yelchin (Clumsy Smurf), Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf), Katy Perry (Smurfette), Alan Cumming (Gutsy Smurf), Fred Armisen (Brainy Smurf), George Lopez (Grouchy Smurf), and Paul Reubens (Jokey Smurf).

Scorsese to shoot Hugo Cabret in 3D

Posted by LiveFor on April 14, 2010

Martin Scorsese’s next film is The Invention of Hugo Cabret based on the book by Brian Selznick. It also looks as if he is going to give this new fangled 3D thingy a go according to Variety.

Judging by the synopsis below it could well work as a 3D film and the fact Scorsese wants to shoot it that way means there will be no post conversion to mess things up.

ORPHAN, CLOCK KEEPER, AND THIEF, twelve-year-old Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric girl and the owner of a small toy booth in the train station, Hugo’s undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message all come together…in The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

This 526-page book is told in both words and pictures. The Invention of Hugo Cabret is not exactly a novel, and it’s not quite a picture book, and it’s not really a graphic novel, or a flip book, or a movie, but a combination of all these things. Each picture (there are nearly three hundred pages of pictures!) takes up an entire double page spread, and the story moves forward because you turn the pages to see the next moment unfold in front of you.

The film stars Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Ben Kingsley, and Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat). It is due for release on 9th December 2011.

Are you interested to see what Scorsese does with 3D?

Kuky Returns – Lovely looking stop motion live action animated film

Posted by LiveFor on March 20, 2010

Check out the trailer for this Czech film. Looks great and really captures that feeling of childhood.

Kuky Returns is the story of a boy six Ondra, who suffers from asthma, and so on “health reasons” must be off his favorite toy – a pink bear kuky. When mom Kukyho throw in the trash, it will work Ondrová fantasy in which experienced Kukyho adventure in an unknown natural world. It’s really just a dream a little boy or kuky actually went to the biggest adventure of his plush life

Kuky Returns is an adventure, a poetic family story in which the main role, however, take the heroes of children’s fantasy worldwhere the only heroes are the puppets. “I thought then change the scale and place the story directly into the microcosm, his protagonists make small enough that the roots of the tree decorations, light in the atmosphere made raspberry leaves, fuzz was all the props and extras natural insects,” says Jan Sverak, who is also the author scenarios and as with most of his recent films also the producer.

The Monster Squad – Remake in the works. Wolfman better watch his nards

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2010

Another day, another remake. This one involves The Monster Squad. That excellent 1987 film that had a group of kids fighting the classic versions of Dracula, The Wolfman, The Mummy, The Gill Man and Frankenstein’s Monster – yes I know the Monster ends up helping them. The original was one of the first films were I fully realised how dreadful the curse of the werewolf could be (not just because of getting hit in the nards). The guy who played him really shows how much he wanted to die because of it. I digress.

Deadline have the news that Paramount are keen to remake it. Rob Cohen who produced the original is hoping to direct it and they are currently meeting with writers to get a script sorted. Shane Black (Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps) wrote the original so they need to get some good writers involved.

I really don’t think they’ll be able to recapture the coolness of the original. The kids in that were class and casting the new squad could be the weak link. If they do go for it I just hope they go for unknown child actors and none of the current Disney style kids with the big helmet type hair that seems to be doing the rounds.

Should it be a reboot or a sequel? Would be great to have the original Squad all grown up, but to be honest I don’t really want either. I’m sticking with the original (well until I hear more about this new one).

What are your thoughts on The Monster Squad getting back together?

Megamind – Teaser Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on March 18, 2010

Megamind is the most brilliant supervillain the world has ever known. And the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way. Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as ‘Metro Man,’ an invincible hero until the day Megamind actually kills him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, Megamind has no purpose. A supervillain without a superhero. He realizes that achieving his life’s ambition is the worst thing that ever happened to him. Megamind decides that the only way out of his rut is to create a new hero opponent called ‘Titan,’ who promises to be bigger, better and stronger than Metro Man ever was. Pretty quickly Titan starts to think it’s much more fun to be a villain than a good guy. Except Titan doesn’t just want to rule the world, he wants to destroy it. Now, Megamind must decide: can he defeat his own diabolical creation? Can the world’s smartest man make the smart decision for once? Can the evil genius become the unlikely hero of his own story?
