The Last Airbender – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on June 23, 2009

This is the official teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender, the live action movie based on Avatar the Last Airbender.

It certainly looks a lot better than Dragonball Evolution and has a similar tone to the original cartoon. If anything the long shot of all the ships reminds me of John Woo’s Red Cliff. It definitely has the potential to look epic. All depends upon how good the main kid is at acting I suppose.

You can have a better look at Aang and Dev Patel as Zuko in this photo.

What do you reckon? Good or bad?

The news no-one was waiting for

Posted by LiveFor on June 9, 2009

James Marsters told an interviewer that he’ll be filming the sequel to the much-reviled Dragonball Evolution after he gets done touring with his band in Europe this spring and summer. He’s just been told he can officially announce a sequel. Even fansite DB The Move greets this news with gritted teeth, saying “Let’s just hope that if true, they treat the sequel with a lot more respect.”

I like James Marsters. I thought he was cool as Spike in Buffy and Angel and he was good in Torchwood. I always feel he should be a bigger star than he currently is. Unfortunately, unless they up the game on the sequel, I don’t think his star will rise any higher.

Mind you he will still be getting paid a shed load of money so he won’t be complaining. Hell I’ll take a part in the sequel for a big pile of money.

Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch loses a couple more actors but gets Chung and Malone

Posted by LiveFor on April 21, 2009

Jamie Chung (Dragonball Evolution) and Jena Malone (Donnie Darko, Into the Wild, The Ruins) are set to topline Sucker Punch, Zack Snyder’s all-female action fantasy for Warner Bros.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chung and Malone join Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish in the film, which Snyder is directing and producing with his Cruel & Unusual Films partner, wife Deborah Snyder.

Set in the 1950s, Sucker Punch centers on a girl confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternate reality to hide from the pain and in that world begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out.

Several actors have been in talks and negotiations to star in the movie, including Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia), Evan Rachel Wood and Emma Stone, but have fallen away because of scheduling conflicts (surely their schedules were known when they first said they could do it?)

Chung, replacing Stone, plays Amber, a country girl with a big heart. Malone, taking Wood’s part, plays Cornish’s younger sister. Both characters are inmates.

All seems a bit strange having people who had been confirmed to take part dropping out like this. One I could understand, but now three of the original line-up have changed. I wonder if it is anything to do with Watchmen’s underperformance at the box office? I wouldn’t be surprised if Vanessa Hudgens is the next to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

I’m still looking forward to this film though as I have enjoyed Snyder’s comic book adaptions and it will be interesting to see him do something a bit more original.

James Marsters as Lord Piccolo from Dragonball Evolution

Posted by LiveFor on February 23, 2009


Total Film had this image from Dragonball Evolution, directed by James Wong.

This one shows James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville, Torchwood) as Lord Piccolo. Green and bald sums it up. Kind of like a stretched out Yoda but with less hair. Below is Piccolo as seen in the cartoons so the makeup job isn’t too bad.

Dragonball fans do you want to see this film or should they have stuck to the animated versions?
