Forty years ago today, Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West had its world première in Rome, an event which, it goes without saying, should not be allowed to pass without notice, even though that is precisely what seems to have happened throughout this anniversary year. Whereas 2005 saw the opening of the Once Upon a Time in Italy...: The Westerns of Sergio Leone exhibition at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles, followed, in 2006, by commemorative events marking the fortieth anniversary of The Good, the Bad and Ugly, and a season of Italian Westerns at the 2007 Venice film Festival, 2008 has come and (almost) gone with not so much as a screeching train whistle sounded in celebration of what is often called “the greatest Western ever made”.

Not Down for the Count

11 December 2008 12:59 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

"I resisted change. I didn't know how to change, and I didn't think I needed to change. But now I know different, and I have no problem being accountable. I can go as far as I want to go, if I stick to the rules. I tried to beat the system, and I got the shit kicked out of me. I don't recommend my way to anybody." Mickey Rourke's voice is low and soft, but there is an unmistakable intensity to his words. He looks you in the eye when he speaks, occasionally grabbing your arm or shoulder to pull you closer to make his point. His face is weathered and beaten — literally, he spent years as a professional boxer — but it's not hard to see the movie star still in there, the face that commanded the big screen in the 1980s in films such as Diner, Angel Heart, »

Johnny Depp Cast As Mad Hatter

30 July 2008 9:31 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

This may not come as a surprise to anyone, but Johnny Depp has been cast in Tim Burton’s upcoming Alice in Wonderland 3D movie, to be produced by Disney.  What’s interesting is he’s playing the Mad Hatter.  I have to say, this is pretty awesome news, and I’m now looking forward to the film even more!

 

Mia Wasikowska is playing Alice, but no word on anyone else’s casting, though I am thinking we’ll see a lot of CGI characters for the White Rabbit and so on.  

I really hope Burton goes all out with his production design on this one.  His version of Alice in Wonderland could be one of his greatest films yet!  With veteran Burton actor Depp onboard, this movie is aimed to please!  I recently saw Once Upon A Time In Mexico, and Depp just made the film that much better. »
