The Notable Films of 2011: Part Two

19 December 2010 2:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

Ving Rhames May Not Appear In Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

16 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Back in August, we told you that Ving Rhames (Soldiers of Fortune) would be returning to the Mission: Impossible franchise as Ethan Hunt’s tech expert, Luther Stickell in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. At the time, Rhames himself even confirmed he would be returning, during an interview on Lopez Tonight.

Rhames was recently out promoting his latest film, Death Race 2 and spoke with MovieWeb about his role in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. The actor indicated that due to budget cuts, his appearance in the film isn’t really a sure thing:

“I may be doing something very small in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol but I will just say that the budget changed dramatically and I’ll leave it at that.”

When asked if that meant he would only have a cameo appearance, Rhames said,

“Hmm… Cha-ching could create that but it’s up to them.”

The directors who went from animation to live action

14 December 2010 8:34 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a look at 11 directors who made the jump from animated to live action features, and how their attempts fared…

You hear quite a few live action directors, Guillermo del Toro, for starters, talking about a desire to make animated films. To control every aspect of the frame, and what goes in it.

Yet, the journey the other way around is increasingly common. It's hard not to see the appeal, too. For directing an animated film is a two year job at the very least, and three years more likely. Live action is generally a quicker way to get a film on the screen.

Also, given how CG dependent many movies are becoming, there's a general assumption that an animation director will have a better handle on computer effects.

However, great films from animation directors aren't that common. Here are eleven directors who took the chance, and how they got on. »

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol – Set Photos of Cruise, Pegg and Patton

14 December 2010 8:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Just last month, we brought you some photos of Tom Cruise defying gravity on the Dubai set of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, doing his own stunts and dangling almost 2,717 ft in the air, near the top of the Burj Khalifa (124 floors high). As we’ve told you before, this Mission: Impossible is quite the international adventure, and Dubai was only one stop.

Now we have a look at not only Tom Cruise but also, Simon Pegg who reprises his role as Benji Dunn, and newcomer Paula Patton on the Vancouver set of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

First Look: Simon Pegg and Paula Patton in ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’

14 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Here's your first look at Simon Pegg in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, in which the actor reprises the role he originated as a very small appearance in Mission: Impossible III. This time out he seems to be taking a more active role, as Pegg, Paula Patton and Tom Cruise were all photographed while shooting a scene in Vancouver, Canada. Based on the similar outfits sported by Pegg and Patton, as well as that van, decorated like a service for some sort of security firm, the obvious conclusion to draw is that his character is drawn out into field work. More photos, but not many more clues, are after the jump. Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles) is making his live-action directing debut with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which also features Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, Josh Holloway, Anil Kapoor, Léa Seydoux, and Vladimir Mashkov. The film will release on December 16, 2011. [Accidental Sexiness [1]] [1] http://www. »

Early Buzz: Pixar’s Cars 2

10 December 2010 1:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

You've probably noticed the influx of Pixar postings every-time the Emmeryville animation studio produces a new film -- yup, I love Pixar. But the one film in the entire Pixar catalog that I don't love (not to say that I don't like it, it's just a few steps below the rest) is Cars. To me, it almost feels like one of the movies Dreamworks Animation had produced at that point of time. And if it weren't for the heart of the Route 66 storyline, I probably would've enjoyed it a lot less. The film wasn't considered a huge box office success, grossing $461,981,604 worldwide -- less than Pixar films of previous years like Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo (which in comparison made $867.8 million worldwide). But the merchandising for the film has brought in billions in sales, which is why Disney green lit a sequel and began construction »

A Bug's Life: where are they now?

6 December 2010 9:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Pixar’s classic A Bug’s Life brought together an amazingly talented group of people. As the film makes its Blu-ray debut, we find out what happened to its cast…

The classic Pixar production, A Bug's Life, brought together an amazingly talented group of people, including Kevin Spacey, David Hyde Pierce and Denis Leary. So, twelve years on from the film's original release, and to tie in with its UK debut on Blu-ray, we ask, where are the voices behind A Bug's Life now, and what have they done since?

Dave Foley - Flik

One of the former members of The Kids In The Hall and a stand-up comedian, Dave Foley has been well occupied since providing the voice for Flik. He's either providing voice talent for animated TV shows, or appearing in person as in a stint on Will And Grace, and the mini-series Kids In The Hall: Death Comes To Town. »

Jeff Bridges's age-spanning turn will be new Tron's legacy

6 December 2010 3:13 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Disney's Benjamin Button-style feat in fashioning a youthful Jeff Bridges might not convince – but in 10 years it will be the norm

There has been speculation it might herald a new era of film-making in which actors such as Sean Connery and Harrison Ford are returned to their agile youth via the power of CGI. But watching a de-aged Jeff Bridges star opposite his older self in Disney's Tron: Legacy, it's clear Hollywood's technical monkeys do not have the technology to rebuild him just yet.

The mouse house has gone to great lengths to hype up its apparently Godlike ability to peel away decades of lines and wrinkles from Bridges's face 28 years after Tron, the first film, first introduced us to concepts such as the Grid, light cycles and identity discs. The technology used is similar to that which transformed Brad Pitt into an old man and subsequently back to his »

Interview with Jeffrey Katzenberg on Megamind, DreamWorks & 3D Cinema

2 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

I had the great pleasure of seizing a few minutes of Jeffrey Katzenberg’s time yesterday and being the ‘K’ in DreamWorks Skg as well as the Chief Executive busy out promoting the prolific studio’s newest, bluest 3D animated hero Megamind before his UK debut, I am sure you can imagine how little of these precious moments are up for grabs.

Ranking 23rd in the Film Season 2010 Power 100 Katzenberg is no stranger to the cut-throat, ‘make it bigger – make it better’ world of film animation. But with Shrek and Po the Panda on his side as well as Megamind’s $30.1 million killing at the American box office in its first week HeyUGuys were curious to see how he feels about the future of DreamWorks.

HeyUGuys: Fey, Ferrell and Pitt provide a particularly strong and distinctive vocal cast for Megamind. How do you go about casting such a star-studded film? »

Mission: Impossible – Jeremy Renner Taking The Reins from Tom Cruise

1 December 2010 8:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Tom Cruise (Knight and Day) and Jeremy Renner (The Avengers) are currently filming the latest installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise in Dubai. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, a film which has been rumored to act as a passing of the torch from Cruise’s Ethan Hunt character to Renner’s new Imf agent.

Jeremy Renner recently spoke with MTV, and revealed that he could in-fact be taking over for the franchise’s star, Tom Cruise.

Renner said,

“It’s a franchise to potentially take over. I can’t predict the future and what they want, but that’s certainly the idea.”

Renner didn’t divulge whether or not there’s a true “passing of the torch” between Ethan Hunt and his character in the film, or if that transition will be addressed in another future installment:

“I can’t really go into the details of the script, because that’s still evolving. »

Jeremy Renner Confirms He's Being Set Up To Take Over The 'Mission: Impossible' Franchise

23 November 2010 6:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Despite the tiredness of the franchise in general, and the ridiculous over-punctuation of its title, we're somewhat optimistic about "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," for two reasons. The first is that it marks the live-action debut of animation genius Brad Bird, who was behind "The Iron Giant" and "The Incredibles," and if the prospect of a spy movie from the man who directed the latter, perhaps Pixar's best film, doesn't excite you, we don't know what will. And the second is Jeremy Renner, who, it was announced in the summer, would be joining the franchise as a colleague of Tom… »

Tom Cruise passing Mission: Impossible franchise to Jeremy Renner?

22 November 2010 11:27 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is Jeremy Renner set to be the future of the Mission: Impossible franchise? It certainly seems that way...

Now in production around the planet, and thus far seeming to feature Tom Cruise throwing himself of very tall buildings, Paramount’s Mission: Impossible 4 is looking all set for a Christmas 2011 release. And given that The Iron Giant, Ratatouille and The Incredibles director Brad Bird is making his live action debut with the film, we can’t want to see it.

However, if you’ve followed the story of Mission: Impossible 4 to date (or Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, as we should probably call it. Given that it’s its name), you might already be aware that the original plan was to have Tom Cruise headline the movie by himself. However, given that his box office pulling power appears to be waning, the script was changed to accommodate a co-star, who just happens »

Video of The Day: Tom Cruise Scales The Burj Khalifa

21 November 2010 4:36 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Two weeks ago we posted some images of Tom Cruise performing his own stunts for Mission Impossible 4, in which he scaled The Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure ever built.  Located in Dubai the building stands at 2,717 feet in height but that didn’t stop the actor from convincing producers to allow him to risk his life so he could satisfy his daredevil fetish.

Above you can see the latest photo and a video below of Tom Cruise sitting on top of the world.

Mission Impossible 4 will have Cruise reuniting with Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg, to form a new team with Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Holloway. The sequel will be directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles), who’ll be taking a leap from the genre of animation with this project. Jj Abrams and Cruise will both produce and of course Paramount will distribute. Mission Impossible 4 is scheduled to »

“Deep Vote” On “Wonderland,” “Toy Story 3,” And “Mother And Child”

15 November 2010 8:04 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

“Deep Vote,” an Oscar winning screenwriter and a member of the Academy, will write this column — exclusively for ScottFeinberg.com — every week until the Academy Awards. He will help to peel back the curtain on the Oscar voting process by sharing his thoughts about the films he sees and, ultimately, his nomination and final ballots, as well. His identity must be protected in order to spare him from repercussions for disclosing the aforementioned information.

Last week, he assessed “Winter’s Bone” (Roadside Attractions, 6/11, R, trailer) and “Solitary Man” (Anchor Bay Films, 5/21, R, trailer). This week, he tackles “Alice in Wonderland” (Disney, 3/5, PG, trailer), “Toy Story 3” (Disney, 6/18, G, trailer), and “Mother and Child” (Sony Pictures Classics, 5/7, R, trailer)…

* * *

Here are three movies designed to play off the unconscious feelings of childhood, and only the most grown-up of them even obliquely succeeds in doing so.

I don’t mind “Alice in Wonderland »
