UPDATED: In Cinemas 5th February – Invictus, Solomon Kane, Youth in Revolt, Ponyo and Astro Boy

Posted by LiveFor on February 4, 2010

So the weekend is almost here and most people (except store workers, poor bastards) will be off and heading to the flicks. “But what should I see?” I hear you ask, never fear because Live for Films is here with a sneak peak at this weeks releases.

Film of the Week is Clint Eastwood’s Invictus with Morgan Freeman starring as newly elected South African President Nelson Mandela in a role he was born to play. As tensions continue to run high throughout the country Mandela wants to unite his citizens, and he plans to do so through rugby. Although given little chance of actually winning the upcoming World Cup that is the task he sets captain François Pienaar (Matt Damon) and his team. Personally I’m a huge fan of Clint’s directorial work (dare I say I appreciate it more than his acting career? Blasphemy?) so I was ultra excited to see this. The story is definitely a different approach to a straight biopic which many, including myself, would have expected but it works well by not trying to cram too much information into two plus hours. Sure we get to see the cell where Mandela was caged up for all those years, but this is not a film about Nelson Mandela but rather about a country coming together. Damon and Freeman perform admirably, but I felt a lack of excitement during the egg-chasing. Still, a very entertaining watch and would fit as a nice way to wind down the weekend.

“What is this Solomon Kane crap?” I found myself asking this week. After hearing virtually nothing about it (or maybe just not paying any attention – Dear oh dear Rich. I’ve posted posters, clips and even posted concept art back in Sept 2008 so you weren’t paying attention – Phil) a week before its release I found it plastered on every bus that I watched drive by, the poster is now imprinted on to my brain. So, if like me you have no idea what it is, here’s the rundown; After fighting for Queen Elizabeth I in Africa Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) is visited by a demon who tells him his cruel actions have damned him for the rest of his life unless he seeks redemption. He is determined to change his ways and become a nice chap, helping old women with their groceries etc I guess, but when an evil sorcerer threatens the land he is forced to battle once again. I suppose I should really have known a little more about this but I’m pretty sure I watched the trailer a while back, no need to bring out the gimp on me. Please! Check out the trailer below to see if it’s your bag…
UPDATE: Solomon Kane is now out on 19th February – END OF LINE

Michael Cera to star in a period piece? Michael Cera to star in a Michael Bay flick? Michael Cera to star in anything except a Michael Cera film? For those of you unaware, this is how a Michael Cera film usually pans out It doesn’t look likely as Youth in Revolt opens this week. Co-starring Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta and Zack Galifianakis, Cera plays outcast Nick Twist who after failing to win the heart of Sheeni (Portia Doubleday), creates an alter ego François (Michael Cera, rocking a little ‘tache and a bad-ass attitude) and that’s when things starting going a little bit crazy. Sure his earlier films and his role as George Michael in Arrested Development were good, but is the act starting to run a little thin? However, early reviews seem to be pretty positive so it could be worth a watch and I might catch it this weekend. Trailer below:

Also released this week is Japanese animated feature Astro Boy (featuring a host of actors including Nic Cage, Donald Sutherland, Kristen Bell and Samuel L. Jackson) and Ponyo (read more on Ponyo).


Are you heading to the cinema this weekend? If so, let us know what you see and feel free to send any reviews to Live for Films

The Losers and Freddy Krueger to go head to head in 2010

Posted by LiveFor on June 25, 2009

It looks as if the Comedian and Rorschach will be battling it out in the box office next year.

According to Box Office Mojo, the adaption of DC Comics The Losers will hit theaters on 16th April 2010. This is the same release date as New Line’s A Nightmare on Elm Street

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Jackie Earle Haley are the leading men of The Losers and Nightmare.

As far as I was aware The Losers had yet to start filming so it is a bit of a surprise for the release date to be announced so soon.

2010 should be quite a good year for Comic Book lovers – The Losers, Iron Man 2, Jonah Hex and Scott Pilgrim vs The World announced so far.

Out of The Losers and The Nightmare on Elm Street remake which one are you most looking forward to?

Viggo will walk along The Road in October

Posted by LiveFor on May 2, 2009


Dimension Films and 2929 Productions have finally announced that they will be releasing John Hillcoat’s adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel The Road, on October 16th 2009.

Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen, Academy Award winners Robert Duvall and Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and 12-year-old Kodi Smit McPhee star in the the story of a man (Mortensen) and his young son (Smit-McPhee) traveling through a desperate, post-apocalyptic world.

It was meant to be release last year, but was knocked back. I am made up it is finally going to be released as it was one of my favourite books of recent years.

Spider-Man 4 due out in 2011

Posted by LiveFor on March 12, 2009

Marvel Entertainment, Inc. has announced a new set of release dates for its film slate. Included on the new schedule is a 2011 bow for ‘Spider-Man 4’, with ‘The Avengers’ getting pushed back nearly a full year to 2012.

Fans can look forward to the webslinger’s return on May 6, 2011, as Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire continue the franchise that made Marvel a star player in Hollywood. As with previous ‘Spider-Man’ films, that one is a Sony Pictures Entertainment production.

Marvel had previously staked out that date for the release of the new ‘First Avenger: Captain America’ movie, with the mega-crossover pic ‘The Avengers’ slated to come out few months after. ‘

Now Marvel has shuffled its film schedule to make room for Spidey. ‘Iron Man 2’ remains locked into to its previously announced May 7, 2010 release. However ‘Thor’, which was also slated for 2010, is now on tap for June 17, 2011. ‘Captain America’ will arrive later that same summer with a July 22, 2011 date.
