Who will win the 2010 Oscars?

Posted by LiveFor on February 25, 2009

The 2009 Oscars have come and gone, but the movie industry rumbles ever onwards. Pam (thanks again) sent me the link to a great article on The Ampersand (love that word, great name for a monkey!)

In it they talk about what could possibly win at next years Oscars. Obviously it is a way off and there will be plenty of films out between now and then, but this is what they have come up with for some of the awards.

Best Animated Feature

Coraline — This stop-motion pic has already garnered the critical acclaim; it’s probably a safe bet to snag a nomination.

Up — It’s the latest from Pixar, which means a nomination is all-but-guaranteed.

Monsters vs. Aliens
— The use of 3D technology — it’s supposed to be jaw-dropping — might push it into contention.

9 — Shane Acker’s post-apocalyptic epic has some big names behind it, including Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted). Plus, the animated short it is based on snagged an Academy Award nomination in 2005, which means it has the right pedigree.

Best Director

Martin Scorsese — Ashecliffe
— Although we prefer the film’s original title, Shutter Island, you can never discount Scorsese.

Michael Mann — Public Enemies
— See the above category of Best Actor. With a cast that includes Depp and Bale, this will be a film worth watching. Mann is always solid.

James Cameron — Avatar
— Cameron’s first feature film in over a decade, this film is going to be huge. The buzz is Avatar may be a game-changer, a film that changes the way we watch movies. It may be too sci-fi to garner a Best Picture nomination, but if I were a betting man a Best Director nomination for Cameron would be a worthy gamble.

Best Picture

Where The Wild Things Are
— We have absolutely no evidence to back this up, except for the hope that Spike Jonze, Dave Eggers, and everyone else can pull off this long-delayed adaptation of the children’s classic.

Nine — No, not 9, the animated feature mentioned above. Nine. Yes, this is going to be confusing. The Academy loves musicals, loves Rob Marshall, and the cast includes Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson Judi Dench, and Sophia Loren. Oh, and Fergie. Can’t forget Fergie.

The Lovely Bones
— Recipe for a Best Picture: take an acclaimed novel about a young girl who’s brutally murdered and follows her murder investigation from Heaven. Hire an Oscar-winning screenwriting team to adapt the book; mix in an Oscar-winning director — Peter Jackson — and sprinkle with a cast that includes Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, and Mark Wahlberg. Yeah, I like it’s chances too.

Check out the rest of the article for their thoughts on best actor and actress.

What films do you think will be in the running for next years Oscars and what don’t have a hope in hell?

Monsters vs Aliens – The 3D HD SoBe Lizard Lake Game Day Commercial

Posted by LiveFor on February 1, 2009

If you happen to have a pair of 3D glasses lying around from a recent cinema then whack them on and have a look at this Superbowl advert for Monsters vs Aliens (I’ve not got any handy so no idea how well it works – may have to click on the Watch in HD tab maybe).

The SoBe Lizards dance with star football players Matt Light, Justin Tuck, Ray Lewis, plus the cast of Monsters vs Aliens to the musical stylings of Neff-U

Monsters vs Aliens – Possible viral website

Posted by LiveFor on January 6, 2009

io9 have mention of a site called Total Conspiracy.

At first glance, Total Conspiracy is just a hilariously awesome conspiracy site, including pictures of flying dogs, alien coins (from the U.S. Treasury), and alien-influenced mathematicians. It’s chock full of weird ranty videos by sitemaster Jeffrey Freedman, and essays on things like flu vaccines as an alien scheme to weaken us. (And I love the whole thing in the video, where he demands to know if the government had anything to do with the death of Robert Heinlein.)

However, upon digging deeper (and it is well worth having a good look through the site as there is just so much funny and cool stuff on it) there are little nods to the beasties from Monsters vs Aliens, as seen in the pic at the top and the clip below.

Go and have a look and let me know if you agree about it being a viral site for the film.

Avatar Teaser Trailer? It could be on the way…maybe

Posted by LiveFor on November 16, 2008

MarketSaw had this photo which apparantly shows the teaser trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar sitting ready in their boxes. At 3:57 it does seem awfully long for a teaser so these may well be fake.

If it’s real I’m not sure what film the teaser may debut on. Maybe The Day the Earth Stood Still, or The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, maybe Monsters vs Aliens as that’s a 3D CGI film. What is your opinion on the photo? Real or bogus? If real what film could it be show with?
