More Details About Robert Zemeckis' Yellow Submarine Emerge

19 December 2009 12:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Our friends at IESB have gotten their hands on a casting breakdown and short plot synopsis for Robert Zemeckis' upcoming motion capture remake of The Beatles' seminial animated musical The Yellow Submarine. A few months ago, it was announced that casting for the Fab Four was currently underway. There was also talk that Zemeckis was strategically planning to get both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the only two living Beatles, involved in the project. Here is the casting breakdown and synopsis that &#8232Iesb came across: Yellow Submarine (additional roles) Director: Robert Zemeckis Motion Capture Studio: Disney Story Line: Follows a singing group of 4 British young men that are asked to help a land that has been overtaken by mean spirited creatures. They are recruited by an escapee to come and bring joy and music back to the land... This film will be done in the Motion Capture technique. [Jeremy Hillary Boob, Ph.D.] A strange, »

More Character, Design and Story Details For Robert Zemeckis’ Yellow Submarine

19 December 2009 10:41 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

After the initial call for actors to play The Beatles another Yellow Submarine casting notice has now been issued. This one details some of the major supporting roles that Robert Zemeckis is looking to fill, and in between the character information there's the odd bit of plot info as well as some telling details of design. So far, it all seems fully contingent with the original movie. The notice opens with the following statement of premise: The Yellow Submarine follows a singing group of four British young men that are asked to help a land that has been overtaken by mean spirited creatures. They are recruited by an escapee to come and bring joy and music back to the land. I found the first mention of the casting notice at The Jacksonville Observer and started out on a hunt for the full document. It seems I was beaten by the IESB. »

Christopher Eccleston Set To Play John Lennon

30 November 2009 2:23 AM, PST | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

Christopher Eccleston, who starred in the recent aviation bio-pic Amelia, has been cast as John Lennon in the Robert Jones penned Naked Lennon. The BBC Four production aims to shed light on the tumultuous years of Lennon circa 67-71.

The focus of the film leans on the final years of The Beatles life. Recently Nowhere Boy, a film that looks into the life of Lennon as an emerging songwriter, drew mixed reviews at its London festival premiere. Naked Lennon will focus on the years "When the Beatle was ending his first marriage to Cynthia as Yoko Ono entered his life, coping with the death of manager Brian Epstein and the group's own messy and acrimonious disintegration."

The film also stars Claudie Blakley as Lennon's first wife Cynthia, Andrew Scott as Paul McCartney, Naoko Mori as Yoko and Rory Kinnear as The Beatles manager Brian Epstein.

It seems that Beatles mania never wanes, »

Cast: Eugene Hutz

Running Time:  1 hr 30 mins

Rating: Not Rated

Release Date: November 27, 2009

Plot: Eugene Hutz forms a band to combine the aesthetic of gypsy folk music with the passion of punk.  Filmmaker Jimeno documents the creation of the band in New York through it’s ascendance in popularity.

Who’S It For? Fans of Gogol Bordello or people interested in finding out what Gypsy Punk is.

Expectations: I’m a fan of the band and was hoping for a film that could rival the excitement and passion of a live Gogol Bordello performance.

Scorecard (0-10)

Actors:

Eugene Hutz as himself:  Though Gogol Bordello is a band and I wouldn’t want to suggest that each member doesn’t make a contribution, the heart and soul of this film and the group is Hutz.  The film shows home video of Hutz as a kid in the former Ussr, »

Gabe Sunday's John Lennon 'Yellow Submarine' Audition Tape

24 November 2009 7:32 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

In the past couple days some news reports have surfaced that would make it seem as if Robert Zemeckis has begun the casting process for his Yellow Submarine remake, which is apparently going under the name of The Fab Four Project or The Untitled Fab Four Project for reasons we do not know (perhaps to either mask the real production or perhaps they've decided to go in a different direction and are between titles). Jim Hill noted that they're holding open auditions at a Beatles convention in Stamford, Connecticut this weekend, and The Sun already claims actor Stephen Graham has landed the part of Ringo in the mo-capped feature (though I'd take that piece of news with a huge grain of salt).

It also looks like Zemeckis is considering a wide range of folks for the role of John Lennon, including one of our favorite up-and-coming actors, Gabe Sunday. I »

Discuss: Does a ‘Yellow Submarine’ Remake Even Make Sense?

23 November 2009 6:29 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I love the Beatles. Some might say I'm obsessed with them and the incredible burst of creative sonic wonderment that they built and embodied for such a short amount of time. In fact, if you enjoy "music," then you love them to even if you don't know it. That song you're humming in your head right now, regardless of genre, wouldn't be the same without them. Unless the song is completely influenced by the Beach Boys and their specific version of pop music. So, maybe you have an out after all. But even with the release of the monster Fab Four catalog in plastic guitar and colored button form, it makes absolutely no damned sense to me that Robert Zemeckis would want to remake Yellow Submarine. Here are some reasons why: The original film came out in 1968, and didn't really feature the Beatles themselves except for a cameo at the end. It's »

Zemeckis Auditioning John Lennons For His Yellow Submarine Movie

23 November 2009 9:17 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You may remember that we were thoroughly horrified to hear that captain of the motion-capture army Robert Zemeckis was planning a remake of Yellow Submarine, filmed by attaching ping-pong balls to actors' faces and transforming them into creepy, almost-lifelike animated versions of The Beatles. And while I'd still much rather Zemeckis take on an original story, I'm a little more intrigued about the project after watching Gabe Sunday's audition tape for the film. A source tells us that Sunday is "in the final running" to be the film's John Lennon, and watching the tape below it's not hard to see why-- Sunday captures Lennon's voice and mannerisms both when singing and simply lounging around a house. It's not your typical audition tape, but the gambit really pays off, proving that Sunday has it in him to actually inhabit, not just imitate, the unmistakable figure that Lennon is. Zemeckis is apparently »

Zemeckis’ Yellow Submarine Casting, Clues and Details Leaking Out, Stephen Graham as Ringo?

23 November 2009 5:23 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This weekend, the 28th and 29th of November, there's a huge Beatles convention taking place in Stamford, Connecticut. Amongst all of the merchandise sales and other such typical expo shenanigans, there's also set to be an open audition for Beatlemaniacs wanting to try out for casting in what they're calling "The Fab Four." Of course, that the film "will be shot as a motion-capture feature like the current Disney release of A Christmas Carol" tells us everything we need to know - this is Robert Zemeckis' remake of Yellow Submarine. There's already some suspicion, though, that this casting call is nothing more than a publicity stunt. Zemeckis has already talked about the possibility of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr playing themselves in the film, there's been a number of previous auditions, and even stories of name actors being up for the roles, perhaps even cast in them already.

Robert Zemeckis Eyeing The Nutcracker 3-D?

12 November 2009 6:30 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Robert Zemeckis is a director who was once mentioned alongside visionaries like Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, having directed such blockbusters as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump and the Back To The Future trilogy. He certainly earned that reputation, but lately his career has taken a strange detour into the realm of motion capture technology, where his focus seems to be exclusively on taking existing stories and putting them on the big screen in a new way. Certainly Spielberg and Lucas have been big on pushing technology forward as well, but is Zemeckis letting his desire to pioneer get in the way of making good movies? His latest film A Christmas Carol hit theatres just last weekend and the reviews haven't been so hot, but that hasn't stopped him from lining up another Christmas movie to immediately follow it. According to Pajiba [1], Zemeckis wants to use motion capture to »

Rumor: Zemeckis Following Christmas Carol with The Nutcracker

11 November 2009 2:49 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Robert Zemeckis' latest CGI feature, A Christmas Carol, is currently playing and seems to be bringing in the cash, as expected. Whereas Zemeckis used to be an amazing filmmaker, he's now become our bi-yearly deliverer of a fantastical 3D CGI version of some beloved holiday story. First it was The Polar Express, this year it's A Christmas Carol, so what's up next after that? Pajiba claims that Zemeckis will eventually be adapting The Nutcracker as well, but it's not clear if that'll come before or after he remakes The Beatles' Yellow Submarine. Whatever the case, I'm not excited, despite my love for these wonderful holiday stories. They also say that similar to A Christmas Carol (which was a direct adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel), Zemeckis' Nutcracker won't be an adaptation of the Tchaikovsky ballet, but rather an adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann's original 1816 novel, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, »

Jennifer Plays With Demi, Emily, and Naomi in NYC

10 November 2009 7:00 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Aniston was in La last week for her stylist's wedding, but she popped up in NYC last night to take part in the annual 24 Hour Plays on Broadway. She joined a handful of actor couples for the evening, including Emily Blunt and John Krasinki as well as Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts. Demi Moore was a lot more covered up than her recent W cover, as she posed with husband Ashton Kutcher. Jennifer joined her fellow thespians onstage to sing "Yellow Submarine" and take part in the hastily-written theater exercise, which was held to benefit arts in education programs in public schools. She took her bow next to a similarly-dressed Brooke Shields before moving on for some after-hours fun with Ashton and Demi. View 35 Photos › To see more from the event, just read more.

Aniston Takes To The Stage In New York

10 November 2009 4:11 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Aniston took to the stage in New York City on Monday night to show off her singing skills in a star-studded theatre event.

The former Friends actress signed up to appear in The 24-Hour Plays, a series of six short works which are written, rehearsed and performed in just one day. The gruelling task gives actors less than 12 hours to polish their performance before the curtain goes up.

Aniston appeared in Ramen Noodle alongside Brooke Shields, and showed off her vocal ability with a rendition of Beatles classic Yellow Submarine.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore also appeared in the evening of short plays, as well as Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber, Sam Rockwell and Julia Stiles. »

Michael Sheen (Aro), Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius), Dakota Fanning (Jane), Cameron Bright (Alec) - The Volturi Press Conference - Twilight: New Moon

8 November 2009 8:05 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As most of you know, this weekend was the press junket for “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” here in Los Angeles.  Since so many of the cast were in attendance, Summit Entertainment divided up the actors by who they played in the movie.  Since Michael Sheen (Aro), Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius), Dakota Fanning (Jane), and Cameron Bright (Alec) played the Volturi in “New Moon”, it made sense they would share a press conference.  So if you’d like to read or listen to what they had to say about their characters and being in “New Moon”, hit the jump.

As always, you can either read the transcript below or click here to listen to the audio.  Finally, look for my one on one video interview with Michael Sheen in a few days.  It was a great interview that you’ll really enjoy.

We have a brand new video from Summit which you can checkout below which introduces you to the Volturi from New Moon. In a brief but pivotal appearance, the vampiric Cullen family hosts a birthday party for Bella where a paper cut sets off a dangerous chain reaction, prompting Edward to end the romance. Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz and Jackson Rathbone all return as the Cullen family. “We’ve turned into a real family,” says Reed. “We are all so passionate about this and my castmates are such smart, interesting people. It’s great to work with them again and we are 9 so fortunate that we get to carry these characters through multiple films. We are all such fans of the books, it’s been extremely gratifying to bring something to life that we love so much.” Alice Cullen, played by Greene, comes into »

New Moon Volturi Interview, Dakota Fanning, Michael Sheen

7 November 2009 8:00 PM, PST | MoviesOnline.ca | See recent MoviesOnline news »

We caught up with all the members of the Volturi and got to talk to them about their new film New Moon. Those who participated in the interview are as follows; Michael Sheen (Aro), Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius), Dakota Fanning (Jane) and Cameron Bright (Alec).

The Twilight Saga: New Moon marks the first appearance of the Volturi, the closest the vampire world has to royalty and a major force in the future of the saga. Centuries old and unimaginably powerful, they serve as lawmakers and enforcers for the community. The leader of the group is Aro, played by Michael Sheen. Sheen is no stranger to this world, having played a werewolf enslaved by the vampires in the Underworld series.

Q: Dakota, as such a fan of the series, you’ve said in many interviews before that you were really excited about this so what were the highlights of playing Jane »

'Christmas Carol' Takes Top Spot While 'The Box' Barely Makes Top Five at Friday Box-Office

7 November 2009 11:33 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Nikki Finke delivers the top six at this weekend's Friday box-office and I don't think there is any big surprises here. As a matter of fact, I will be more interested in seeing how films such as The Men Who Stare at Goats, The Fourth Kind and The Box do in their second weekends. But let's take this in order shall we?

Finke reports Disney's A Christmas Carol took in a modest $9 million on Friday, which Finke suspects will ultimately result in $35-40 million for the weekend. Laremy Legel, our Box-Office Oracle, was bullish in predicting a $44.2 million weekend and is probably kicking himself, but you can't blame him after taking theater counts and added 3-D revenue. I have heard the budget on this flick was $185 million, which is A Ton, and now that Zemeckis has gone from Warner Bros., to Paramount/DreamWorks and now to Disney, I wonder who »
