Posted by LiveFor on February 2, 2010

Some more fantastic photos by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair. These are all up and coming stars of the future. The Vanity Fair article gives a run down on each of the actresses, but my question is which of them will be huge stars and who will disappear?
From the left – Carey Mulligan (An Education, Doctor Who, Wall Street 2), Kristen Stewart (Twilight, The Runaways), Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia! Chloe, Dear John), Rebecca Hall (Frost/Nixon), Emma Stone (Superbad, Zombieland), Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler), and Anna Kendrick (Up In The Air, Scott Pilgrim vs The World).

Emily Browning to take Snyder’s Sucker Punch

Posted by LiveFor on March 30, 2009

Emily Browning (The Uninvited) will replace Amanda Seyfried in Zack Snyder’s action fantasy Sucker Punch for Warner Bros.

The Australian-born Browning is probably best known for her role as Violet in 2004’s Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Seyfried had received the offer and was very interested in the starring role as an insane asylum inmate who loses herself in a fantasy world where she dreams about escaping with her fellow inmates. But she had to decline due to scheduling conflicts with the fourth season of Big Love. (HBO wouldn’t release Seyfried from her shooting schedule.)

Shooting on Sucker Punch is set for the Autumn. Evan Rachel Wood, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, and Emma Stone are all still in talks to costar.

Amanda Seyfried can no longer star in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch

Posted by LiveFor on March 24, 2009

Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia) has been forced to drop out of the leading role in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch due to her commitment to HBO’s Big Love series reports Entertainment Weekly.

In the 1960’s-set, R-rated action fantasy, Seyfried was set to play a young woman who has been committed to an insane asylum and fantasizes about escaping with the help of her fellow inmates.

Due to scheduling, Sucker Punch will be shooting this Fall – around the same time Big Love is midway through filming its fourth season and HBO won’t release her from her commitment.

Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Evan Rachel Wood and Emma Stone remain set to co-star in the Warner Bros. action-thriller due for release next October.

Sucker Punch – Mamma Mia! The cast for Zack Snyder’s next film has been announced

Posted by LiveFor on March 4, 2009

With Watchmen bowing Friday, director Zack Snyder is already busy prepping his next endeavor, the 1960s-based action fantasy Sucker Punch, based on his own script. Snyder is still putting together his all-female cast, but sources say Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia) is in negotiations to play the lead role of Baby Doll, a young woman who has been committed to an insane asylum and fantasizes about escaping with the help of her fellow inmates, who take on fantastical roles in her mind. Offers are out to a slew of young actresses to fill out those roles, including Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Abbie Cornish (Stop-Loss), Evan Rachel Wood (The Wrestler), and Emma Stone (Emma Stone). The $100 million budgeted film for Warner Bros. is scheduled to begin production in the Fall. Says Snyder, who is also producing the film with his wife Deborah Snyder, “I already did the all-male cast with 300, so I’m doing the opposite end of the spectrum.”Entertainment Weekly

Snyder has called the film “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns”, blending such elements as dragons, B-52 bombers and brothels in an R-Rated $100 million budgeted 1950’s-period action movie. It tells the story of a girl named Baby Doll (Seyfried) who is confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While imprisoned, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain. In this fantasy world, where she needs to steal five objects to help her out before she is deflowered by a vile man. Hudgens (”Blondie”), Cornish (”Sweet Pea”), Wood (”Rocket”), and Stone would play Seyfried’s fellow inmates who also travel into the alternate reality.

All sounds kind of cool Return to Oz, Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors kind of way or that Dreamscape film starring Dennis Quaid (I’d forgotten about that film until just now. I think it had a snake guy invading the President’s dreams or something). Can’t wait to see some concept art for Snyder’s vision of this. I predict slow motion kick ass fights.

What are your thoughts on this film? Could it work or will it be a great big honking mess? Does it remind you of any other films?

Battle for Terra – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on February 19, 2009

The film tells the story of Senn (Justin Long) and Mala (Evan Rachel Wood), two rebellious alien teens living on the beautiful planet Terra, a place that promotes peace and tolerance, having long ago rejected war and weapons of mass destruction. But when Terra is invaded by human beings fleeing a civil war and environmental catastrophe, the planet is plunged into chaos. During the upheaval, Mala befriends an injured human pilot (Luke Wilson) and each learns the two races are not so different from one another. Together they must face the terrifying realization that in a world of limited resources, only one of their races is likely to survive.

Is it just me or does that plot have a hint of James Cameron’s Avatar about it? Human befriends alien race, war etc.

The Wrestler Teaser Trailer – Mickey Rourke in lycra

Posted by LiveFor on November 21, 2008

Back in the late ’80s, Randy “The Ram Robinson” (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey.

Estranged from his daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) and unable to sustain any real relationships, Randy lives for the thrill of the show and the adoration of his fans. However, a heart attack forces him into retirement. As his sense of identity starts to slip away, he begins to evaluate the state of his life — trying to reconnect with his daughter, and strikes up a blossoming romance with an aging stripper (Marisa Tomei). Yet all this cannot compare to the allure of the ring and passion for his art, which threatens to pull Randy “The Ram” back into his world of wrestling.

Director Darren Aronofsky presents a powerful portrait of a battered dreamer, who despite himself and the odds stacked against him, lives to be a hero once again in the only place he considers home ­ inside the ring.
