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 Two

16 December 2009 3:18 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Case 39

Opens: January 1st 2010

Cast: Renée Zellweger, Jodelle Ferland, Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper, Kerry O'Malley

Director: Christian Alvart

Summary: A family services social worker thinks she has seen it all until she meets her newest, most mysterious case - a troubled 10-year old girl whose parents try to kill her. The social worker decides to take her in herself until the right foster family comes along.

Analysis: Despite the presence of promising German director Christian Alvart ("Pandorum"), 'Case' has sat on a shelf since late 2006 and is finally being quietly shuffled out this year for one very good reason - it stinks. Having opened in Australia a few months back, reviewers utterly savaged the film as both incredibly dumb and utterly ludicrous. Lead star Renee Zellweger also scored personal criticism to a level rarely seen in film reviews outside of comments about Nicole Kidman's 'more alien than the »

New Posters for The Last Song Starring Miley Cyrus and Warlords Starring Jet Li

7 December 2009 6:14 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

New posters for The Last Song starring Miley Cyrus and Warlords starring Jet Li have been released and you can check them out after the jump - along with the synopses.  Both posters are typical for the genre they’re in…the Miley Cyrus poster looks like any Nicholas Sparks movie, and the Jet Li movie sells the action.

Before hitting the jump, I should mention half the reason I wanted to do this poster article is to put Miley Cyrus with Jet Li.

The Last Song Trailer: Miley Cyrus Gets the Nicholas Sparks Treatment

18 November 2009 10:18 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer for The Last Song, an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel starring Miley Cyrus, Kelly Preston and Greg Kinnear. And I don't know about you, but I'm just happy to see young Miley finally in a movie where Billy Ray Cyrus doesn't also play her fictional father. This time, she's a musically gifted, Juliard-bound teen who spends a summer at the beach trying to reconnect with her songwriter father. What she didn't expect, what to meet a handsome, white bread beach boy who would become her first love. It's schmaltzy as all hell, but like any other Sparks adaptation, I would expect girls around the globe to eat it up. That, and the star power of Miley Cyrus continues to grow. Whether or not it turns out to be a good movie is yet to be seen, but if there's any source material that has worked with making a »

First Trailer For The Last Song

18 November 2009 2:49 AM, PST | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

Disney has released the trailer for The Last Song, an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' forthcoming novel, starring Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear, Kelly Preston and Liam Hemsworth.

Past adaptations of Sparks' novels have included A Walk To Remember and The Notebook, both essential viewing for teenage girls the world over, and The Last Song appears to be following suit.

The film is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father (Kinnear) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant teenaged daughter (Cyrus), who'd rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common - music - in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances.

Miley Trailer and She, Like, Sooo Disses Twilight

17 November 2009 7:18 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Miley Cyrus is not a fan of Twilight.  What a shocking, newsworthy announcement and yet one that will create a dilemma among tween audiences.  I guess she won’t be showing up for The Twilight Saga: New Moon or drooling over a brooding, sparkly Robert Pattinson like many females this weekend. Where’s my false outrage torch…

But first, since this is a movie site, the 16-year-old entertainer is starring in an adaptation of Nicholas Spark’s upcoming novel The Last Song.  If you’re unfamiliar with Sparks, he’s the best-selling author of The Notebook and A Walk to Remember, two beloved books and films with a predominantly lady audience.  However, I will admit to sitting through The Notebook more than once.  For Rachel McAdams, of course. I also own this t-shirt.  Though I think we all can agree to disregard Nights in Rodanthe.

Unofficial synopsis: Cyrus stars as »

The Last Song Movie Trailer

17 November 2009 6:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Last Song is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father (Greg Kinnear) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant teenaged daughter (Miley Cyrus), who’d rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common—music—in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances. The only reason I'm posting this trailer is that almost every girl I know seems to love (not just like, but love) the past adaptations of Sparks' novels, like A Walk to Remember and The Notebook. The notes in this story ring too loud and obvious for me, as I'm sure it will for you. »

Movie Preview & Trailer: Dear John

21 October 2009 7:32 AM, PDT | ScreenStar | See recent ScreenStar news »

The pain and anguish that litters Nicholas Sparks's Dear John (2010) yanks at our heartstrings demanding tears to roll freely from our eyes. The best selling author who wrote A Walk to Remember (2002), The Notebook (2004), and The Last Song (2010) has a knack for delivering romantic, yet heartbreaking tales of love that captivates audience. Many of Spark's books have become major motion pictures and coming this February, Dear John (2010) hits the big screen, starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. Lost and floundering through life, John Tyree (Channing Tatum) looks to the military to find the peace and happiness he has been so desperately seeking. Gaining personal confidence and strength centered John, but he was not whole until while on leave from the military a chance encounter with Savannah Lynn Curtis (Amanda Seyfriend) brought the two together. They quickly fall madly and passionately in love and vow to be together forever. After »

Oscar Producers Named

I just finished my article on who AMPAS President Tom Sherak may choose as producers for the 82nd Academy Awards. I no more post it and find this email:

Trailer: Channing Tatum And Amanda Seyfried In Dear John

14 October 2009 7:27 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Wouldn't you have figured Channing Tatum would have found his way into a Nicholas Sparks movie before now? He's hunky and Southern and non-threatening, which is pretty much the ideal for any male star of the movies based on books by the author of The Notebook, A Walk to Remember and Nights in Rodanthe, among others. Finally Tatum is taking the role he was born for in Dear John, a new weepie whose trailer has popped up on YouTube and is embedded below. Given how long it is and how rough it looks, I don't think this is an official trailer, so don't be surprised if it gets taken down soon. Still, if you want a good cry, you can't do much better than these three minutes and 50 seconds. Tatum plays a soldier on leave in North Carolina who meets a local girl (Amanda Seyfried) and starts up a letter-writing »

Douglas McGrath Gets Lucky

19 August 2009 12:14 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Infamous writer/director Douglas McGrath has signed up to direct The Lucky One, an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' Iraq War-set romance for Warner Bros.The Lucky One in question is a Us Marine who attributes his survival through three tours in Iraq to his lucky charm, a photo of a smiling woman he carries with him. When he returns home to North Carolina he tracks down the mysterious lady and romance ensures. Or does it?Frankly, we're not sure, but if you were to expect a heart-string tugging romance with a tinge of melodrama, you'd probably not be too far wrong. Sparks' novels have been adapted into movies with Grisham-esque regularity - he's the man behind The Notebook, Message In A Bottle, A Walk To Remember, Night In Rodanthe, which should give you some idea of what to expect. McGrath, meanwhile, has a strong track record in literary adaptations. »
