The Notable Films of 2010: Part Six

27 December 2009 10:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Last Airbender

Opens: July 2nd 2010

Cast: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel

Director: M. Night Shyamalan

Summary: A live-action film based on the Nickelodeon animated TV series. In a fantastic world where civilisation exists as four great empires, a reluctant young child sets out on a perilous journey to restore balance to a world torn apart by war.

Analysis: It has been quite the decade for M. Night Shyamalan, who started it as a household name with the label of a modern-day Hitchcock thanks to the likes of "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs". Today he's considered more of a one-trick pony and in some cases a punchline due to rampant stories of egomania run wild and a series of much derided onscreen flops like "Lady in the Water" and "The Happening".

Thus 'Airbender' marks a potential return to form for the helmer. An adaptation of the hit »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Five

23 December 2009 10:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

'Avatar' Dominates At Box Office

21 December 2009 8:17 AM, PST | MTV Movie News | See recent MTV Movie News news »

James Cameron's return to feature filmmaking earns second-highest-grossing December debut of all time.

By Josh Wigler

"Avatar"

The Box-Office Top Five

#1 "Avatar" ($77.3 million)

#2 "The Princess and the Frog" ($12.2 million)

#3 "The Blind Side" ($10 million)

#4 "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" ($7 million)

#5 "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" ($4.4 million)

The mysterious world of Pandora is as beautiful as it is dangerous, and it's that very combination that helped draw the masses to James Cameron's "Avatar," the director's first feature film in over a decade.

It's hardly surprising that the fantasy epic debuted in first place this weekend, dominating the closest competitor by more than $60 million. The 3-D flick was originally estimated to have pulled in $73 million over the weekend, but on Monday (December 21), Variety reported that the tally had been revised to $77.3 million. That gives "Avatar" the highest-grossing December debut in history, surpassing Will Smith's "I Am Legend, »

Robert Rodriguez Talks ‘Machete’, ‘Sin City 2′

21 December 2009 7:34 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

Robert Rodriguez, a filmmaker I have a lot of respect for but am becoming more and more disappointed in as he sinks more of his time into schlocky 3D kids movies, recently gave up a lot of details regarding plans for sequels to Machete, Sin City 2 and Spy Kids 4 while on the set of Nimrod Antal’s Predators in Texas.

Here’s a breakdown of the details, with some commentary:

Machete Sequels:

“We always talked about making him a franchise character. Danny and I talked about it in ‘94…maybe Desperado that’s when I first mentioned the Machete character. So imagine that…he’s been bugging me since ‘94.

We want Machete, Machete Kills, and Machete Kills Again. [Laughter] That’s mine and Robert’s standards, you know? Every time I text him, he’ll text me back, Machete 2, coming up. [Laughs]“

So there’s a solid “maybe.” I could personally »

Danny Trejo Explains Machete's Origins

21 December 2009 7:06 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Many people think that the idea behind making Robert Rodriguez's upcoming Machete came from its inclusion as a faux-trailer in the Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino double feature Grindhouse. However, Danny Trejo told ComingSoon that in fact the movie evolved from many years of planning.

Everybody thinks that Machete came out of a trailer, but it didn't. Robert told me he wanted to do this movie called Machete when we were doing Desperado and that if you look at the character in Machete, he kind of molded this character Machete ... Machete kicks a**. [laughs] It is a culmination of Desperado, Once Upon a Time in Mexico ... I think there's even a little bit of From Dusk Till Dawn in there.

I think it's going to be one of his best. I'm not just saying that 'cause I'm the lead in it, but it's just a great movie. I think everybody's going to »

Danny Trejo Talks 'Machete'

21 December 2009 6:54 AM, PST | AMC - Script to Screen | See recent AMC - Script to Screen news »

Recently LatinoReview  got to visit the set of "Predators," which actor Danny Trejo is in and spoke to the site about his first lead role in "Machete," the faux trailer from "Grindhouse." The film is being co-directed by Robert Rodriguez with protege Ethan Maniquis.

The film follows the highly skilled Federale Machete who is hired by some unsavory types to assassinate a senator. But just as he's about to take the shot, he notices someone aiming at him and realizes he's been set up. He barely survives the sniper's bullet, and is soon out for revenge on his former employers, with the reluctant assistance of his old friend (Marin), who has become a priest and taken a vow of nonviolence.

Here is what he had to say about his upcoming film "Machete":

Robert put together such a great cast. What’s it like working with Robert De Niro, and then Steven Seagal, »

Valentine's Day Trailer Online

21 December 2009 3:06 AM, PST | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

Last year's He's Just Not That Into You - a little film with a huge cast - seems to have set a standard for Hollywood's tentpole Valentine's Day output so in 2010 we're going to get the rather - do we dare say it - unimaginatively titled Valentine's Day from Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall... and the trailer has just been released over at First Showing.

With a cast list that just goes on and on (see below) and on and on (with Julia Roberts wedged in for good measure) we have to be honest and admit that we haven't got even the foggiest idea of what it's all about, and though the trailer focusses on the blithely unsentimental and cynical characters, the unloved ones who aren't having a very good (valentine's) day, we're certain that's just promotional miss-direction - this is going to be horribly saccharine, and very very annoying. »

Sin City actress Brittany Murphy dies at age 32

21 December 2009 1:12 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Hollywood actress Brittany Murphy has died at the age of 32 after going into cardiac arrest, it's been confirmed.

Among her many roles, Murphy played sex-siren barmaid Shellie in 2005's Sin City, adapted from a graphic novel by Frank Miller. It also starred Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen and Jessica Alba.

News of Murphy's death emerged following an emergency call earlier today from the Los Angeles home where she lived with her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, whom she wed in 2007.

Murphy, who also starred in Clueless and 8 Mile, was said to have been found slumped unconscious in the shower.

She had reportedly suffered cardiac arrest, meaning her heart had suddenly stopped functioning. Medics failed to revive her and she was taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Centre where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

The actress was recently reported to have been fired from the Puerto Rico film set of thriller The Caller for 'difficult' behaviour, »
