Disney G-Force Trailer

30 December 2008 8:00 PM, PST | MoviesOnline.ca | See recent MoviesOnline news »

Disney delivers some more family fare in the form of G-Force. The film is about a bunch of guinea pigs which are trained by the us government to fight terrorism and kick a bunch of butt. The voices are done by Penelope Cruz and Nicholas Cage.

Frankly its your normal Disney Animated fare. I am sure it will appeal to youngsters but unlike a Pixar film I am not sold on this film being fun for the whole family. Checkout the trailer below and decide for yourself.

G-Force trailer is here

30 December 2008 3:00 PM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

The trailer for the new Bruckheimer hamster-venture, G-Force, is now online. While the pictures that arrived a few days ago looked cute, we’re now worried that we have Beverly Hills Chihuahua II on our hands as a group of highly intelligent, trained rodents fight evil. There’s a solid voice cast – including Sam Rockwell, Penelope Cruz, Nicolas Cage and Tracy Morgan – alongside some of the best comic talent (Will Arnett? Zack Galifianakis? What the hell are truly funny people doing in this?*) but the footage has a... .

The Wrestler Review

24 December 2008 5:32 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

[The following review originally appeared as part of my Toronto International Film Festival coverage and reappears now with the film starting into it’s regular theatrical release.]

The plain, indisputable fact of the matter is that Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler goes only as far as Mickey Rourke is able to take it.  No offence to either Marisa Tomei or Evan Rachel Wood, both of whom turn in solid work, but either of them could be replaced by any one of a number of other actresses without doing any sort of damage to the film whatsoever.  Not so Rourke, who is present in vey nearly every frame of the picture and whose presence looms large over even those scenes that play out without him.  Even Aronofsky seems to be aware of Rourke’s huge importance to his latest creation, tossing his entire book of visual tricks out the window for this one, instead adopting the simple policy of simply following his star wherever he may care to go.  The entire weight of The Wrestler rests enitrely on »

Talking Mickey Rourke with Director Darren Aronofsky

24 December 2008 3:17 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

By now we've reported quite a bit on Darren Aronofsky's latest, The Wrestler, and you've probably already read my glowing review of the film. But since The Wrestler finally steps outside of just New York and Los Angeles based theaters come Friday this week, I thought I'd share part of a conversation I had with the director recently, particularly on the topic of Mickey Rourke and how it was working with the 52 year old actor. It would have been fascinating to talk to Rourke personally (next time Fox Searchlight, please!) but Aronofsky offers a lot of great insight into making the film by way of Rourke's involvement. In early development on the film, Nicolas Cage was slotted to play The Ram (I think we can be thankful that didn't happen). How Rourke, who is perfect in the role, came to Aronofsky's mind is lost, partly because Rourke didn't initially »

The Sorcerer’S Apprentice Update – Exclusive Video Interview -- Screenwriter Matt Lopez tells us what’s up with Jon Turteltaub & Jerry Bruckheimer’s next event movie starring Nicolas Cage

24 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The other night I attended the premiere of “Bedtime Stories” and managed to get a number of interviews on the red carpet. While I’ve already posted my interview with Adam Sandler and Judd Apatow, I’ve got one left and it’s with screenwriter Matt Lopez. While Matt’s resume as a screenwriter isn’t too long, with “Bedtime Stories” about to hit theaters and “Race to Witch Mountain” set for release next year, things are looking pretty good for the former lawyer. Add to that, he’s been signed to write “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” for director Jon Turteltaub and producer Jerry Bruckheimer and another script called “My Samurai”. Clearly Disney believes in Matt’s ability as a screenwriter. Anyway, since not much info is known about “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, I decided to use my time with Matt to find out whatever I could. It seems the »

Discuss: Misspelling Celeb/Film Names

20 December 2008 5:42 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Earlier today I noticed on three different sites (including this one) that Nicolas Cage's name was spelled wrong, with the writer opting for Nicholas over Nicolas. Simple mistake, yes, but I began to think about all the different celebrities and films with names and titles we just can't seem to spell right no matter how hard we try. As far as film titles go, the most confusing one of 2008 and 2009 has to be Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds -- a title that comes with at least one "Hey, are you sure they spell it that way?" instant message or email each and every time I write about it.

I introduced this question via Twitter (feel free to follow me and find out how lame I really am) a little while ago, and the most popular misspellings for celebrities were Shia Labeouf, Steve Carell, Will Ferrell and Colin Farrell. Folks »

First Look: 'Knowing'

20 December 2008 4:38 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Nicolas Cage (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) stars in Knowing, a gripping action-thriller of global proportions about a professor who stumbles on terrifying predictions about the future—and sets out to prevent them from coming true.

In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one mysterious girl fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead.

Fifty years later, a new generation of students examines the capsule’s contents and the girl’s cryptic message ends up in the hands of young Caleb Koestler. But it is Caleb’s father, professor John Koestler (Nicolas Cage), who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. As Ted further unravels the document’s chilling secrets, »
