Let Me In – New photo of Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-Mcphee

Posted by LiveFor on May 9, 2010

Here is a new image from the Let the Right One In remake by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield). It shows Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road). It actually doesn’t look too bad.

The LA Times had the pic and an interview with Reeves.

A respectful devotee of both the original novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist as well as the first film, Reeves understands the concerns of those with strong feelings for the original. He had his own reservations about the remake and corresponded with Lindqvist, who also wrote the script for “Let The Right One In,” before taking on the project.

“I think because of ‘Cloverfield,’ people have an assumption, which is, ‘Oh, crazy handicam, he’s going to jazz it up,’ “
Reeves said. “And I think that’s probably what a lot of people were afraid of when they thought of the most cynical version. And that’s the last thing we tried to do. We tried to create the approaching, foreboding dread of movies like ‘The Shining,’ where you feel like something wicked is unraveling and it’s not going to end well. That’s what I responded to about the original, the juxtaposition of those tones, this very disturbing story but at the center of it there are these very tender emotions. That’s a very unusual mix, and that’s what drew me in and dug into me.”

Let Me In – First look at Chloe Moretz in Let the Right One In remake

Posted by LiveFor on May 8, 2010

I know many of you don’t really want a remake of Let the Right One In, but there’s nothing we can do about it. Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) is directign it and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) is playing Abby. Overture Film’s have released this first look at Moretz from the film. Doesn’t really tell us much.

Directed by: Matt Reeves

Screenplay by: Matt Reeves

Cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz and Richard Jenkins

An alienated 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young newcomer in his small New Mexico town, and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood in Let Me In, a haunting and provocative thriller written and directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves (Cloverfield).

Twelve-year old Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee – The Road) is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Oscar®nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond.

When a string of grisly murders puts the town on high alert, Abby’s father disappears, and the terrified girl is left to fend for herself. Still, she repeatedly rebuffs Owen’s efforts to help her and her increasingly bizarre behavior leads the imaginative Owen to suspect she’s hiding an unthinkable secret.

The gifted cast of Let Me In takes audiences straight to the troubled heart of adolescent longing and loneliness in an astonishing coming-of-age story based on the best-selling Swedish novel Lat den Ratte Komma In (Let the Right One In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and the highly-acclaimed film of the same name.

Tron Legacy – Is this the villain of the piece?

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010


This could either be some concept art for the forthcoming Tron Legacy film or video game, a costume for a generic Tron character / soldier, or maybe the bad guy of the film – apparently that will be Clu who is the avatar of Jeff Bridge’s character, Kevin Flynn.

Previous photos show the good guys have the blue light on their costume and the bad guys have the red.

Whichever it is I really like the look of it. What’s your opinion on it?

Hobo With A Shotgun – First proper look at Rutger Hauer and The Plague

Posted by LiveFor on May 4, 2010

The film tells the story of a vigilante homeless man (Hauer) who pulls into a new city and finds himself trapped in urban chaos, a city where crime rules and where the city’s crime boss reigns. Seeing an urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused prostitutes and even a pedophile Santa, the Hobo goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how – with a 20-gauge shotgun. Mayhem ensues when he tries to make things better for the future generation. Street justice will indeed prevail.

Director, Jason Eisener, had this to say about Hauer. “Working with Rutger Hauer is amazing,” he said. “I have to say, I was really intimidated at first because I’ve only worked with local actors. I’ve never worked with someone who’s had so much experience. We’re having a blast making this film.”

It also looks as if the Hobo will be hunted down by some Bounty Hunters known as The Plague and Nat Jones did this piece of concept art for them.

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).

Thor – First look at Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder

Posted by LiveFor on April 30, 2010


Finally our first look at Thor. Yep, that is a photo of Chris Hemsworth in costume as the titular Norse God and how cool is that. I just can’t get over how faithful to the recent comic book version the costume is. Marvel Studios are really sticking close to the original character designs in all of their films.

I do like the whole look of the costume from the chest plates to the almost futuristic chainmail on the arm. All goes along with the God like technology and brings to mind Arthur C Clarke’s quote, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Plus there is a definite hint of Jack Kirby to it.

Looks like Marvel officially released the first look at Thor after a photo of The Destroyer slipped out.

With Kenneth Branagh directing there is a very Shakespearean kind of vibe from all of this and I for one cannot wait for Marvel Studios next film after Iron Man 2.

What do you think of our first glimpse of Thor?
