Disney To Bring Defunct Attraction Project, The Museum Of The Weird To Theaters

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

The first great Walt Disney Pictures movie based on one of it’s legendary park rides was Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and director Guillermo del Toro is working on a live-action film based on Disney’s Haunted Mansion, that will thankfully not be a comedy.

Now, the LATimes reports that Walt Disney Pictures is working on a new film that will be based on a planned park attraction that actually never made it into existence at Disney’s parks called, The Museum of the Weird. The project is being written by Ahmet Zappa.

The Museum of the Weird was being put together by longtime Disneyland imagineers Rolly Crump and Claude Coats. The proposed walk-through attraction was originally meant to sit adjacent to The Haunted Mansion, complete with its own restaurant, and promised to showcase ghostly organists, magical carts, talking chairs and other surreal and odd exhibits. »

Disney Developing The Museum Of The Weird

17 December 2010 2:22 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It used to be that Disney would take a movie and then turn it into a theme park ride, but in recent years, they've been doing just the opposite. Starting with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003, the idea has earned the studio a bundle of money. With the fourth Pirates film set to drop next year and both a Guillermo del Toro piloted Haunted Mansion and a Jon Favreau-directed Magic Kingdom movie (that will see all of the rides become real) in the works, Disney is keeping the trend going. The catch this time is that the ride never actually existed. The Los Angeles Times reports that the House of Mouse is currently developing The Museum of the Weird, a movie based on a ride that Walt Disney was developing back in the 1960s that was never built. According to the article, the »

The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Trailer: Fourth Verse Same as the First?

13 December 2010 1:50 PM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Much like The Matrix spawned two unwatchable sequels, so too did Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl; in fact, if you can even remember one nonsensical plot point from either mega-grossing sequel -- hell, if you can even remember their titles -- you're already ahead of many people watching the just released teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Still, that first film -- that was fun! Can Pirates 4 recapture the glory? »

A pictorial peek at Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

9 December 2010 11:35 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Having absolutely hated both sequels to 2003's excellent Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl even more than the Matrix sequels, I must say that these new publicity pics from Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides make the new sequel look like a damn sight more fun than those movies were, high-grossing or not.

Some of these pics are already in the ether, but USA Today add one of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) up to his britches with former love Angelica (Penelope Cruz), and a new one of our anti-hero getting his customary hospitality from the local authorities. Yahoo Movies bring us four new pics, including a meet with the notorious Blackbeard (Ian McShane).

Hearing that Depp say that POTC4 is like "a fresh, clean slate" is, I think, an acknowledgement that everyone involved realises how poor the previous two movies were - a good »

Jackman was almost cast as Captain Jack

5 December 2010 8:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Screenwriter Stuart Beattie has revealed that Hugh Jackman was the original actor considered for the part of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. Beattie, who wrote the first film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, claimed that Disney was unsure about the choice of Jackman and felt he might not be a big enough star to carry the film.

Report: Disney Planning 'Pirates of the Caribbean' 5 & 6

3 December 2010 11:33 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Disney is reportedly planning fifth and sixth installments in the lucrative "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise with the aim of shooting the blockbusters back-to-back, according to Hitfix. Apparently, Disney has quietly begun telling cast and crew to leave their schedules open in the very near future for the massive shoot. A Disney spokesperson told TheWrap that the studio "isn't commenting" on the rumors besides the fact that Disney is "very excited" about Rob Marshall's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," which is scheduled to wash ashore on May 20, 2011.

Hugh Jackman Was Originally Considered as Jack Sparrow in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’

1 December 2010 1:12 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s hard to imagine Captain Jack Sparrow was played by anyone other than Johnny Depp. Now try to imagine actor Hugh Jackman in that role. “I initially wrote that character with Hugh Jackman in mind,” said Stuart Bettie, a writer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.” Bettie even named the character Jack in his honor. However, Disney did not believe Jackman had enough star power at the time and eventually signed Depp instead. Gig Patta’s Take: No harm, no foul. At least Jackman had the main character named after him. That’s quite a tribute without him being in the movie.Source: Fox News »

DVD industry in crisis as sales slump

28 November 2010 11:01 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

On-demand viewing and the digital games revolution take their toll on DVD and Blu-ray

Spare a thought this Christmas for James Bond, kicking his heels at MI6 and getting under M's feet. Daniel Craig was forced to holster his Walther Ppk when Bond 23 was put on hold following the bankruptcy of MGM, under a mountain of debt. The studio's woes were in considerable part the fallout from a phenomenon that threatens not just Hollywood blockbusters but the continuing supply of high-end, home-produced drama and comedy: a sales slump, which may prove terminal, in the once all-conquering DVD home entertainment market.

The DVD, the fastest-adopted electronic consumer product at its commercial introduction in 1998, became the film studios' biggest cash generator, funding a screen production boom. The industry generated $14bn (£9bn) by 2004, with more than 250m discs sold each year in the UK. Broadcasters shared in the windfall as living room »

Black Swan Movie Review

23 November 2010 1:12 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that few among the most serious of cinephiles are huge fans of ballet. More important than the truth of this statement (which I'm not really committed to) is the fact that it seems to be true. The arts in question are not even particularly relevant. What is important is that, whether we're talking opera, oil painting, or concert pianists, moving to the furthest depths of any particular vehicle of expression generally precludes a true fascination with another.

Even more interesting is the fact that, whether artist or connoisseur, if you get people with the experience of thousands of productions, films, recitals, paintings, or anything else, when they talk about the greatest examples of the medium, they speak as though they are referring to the same thing. At least, with regard to the experience they have.

That idea, though it probably won't manage frequent mention, »

Part II:  The Producers Take Back The Reins

By the late 1970s, the tremendous creative license the major studios under a new generation of production chiefs had granted the young tyros of the 1960s – Coppola, Scorsese, et al – had expired as each managed to deliver at least one, major, back-breaking flop.  For Scorsese, it had been the grim musical New York, New York (1977, $13.8 million U.S. vs. a budget of $14 million); Peter Bogdanovich turned out a streak of losers including period piece Daisy Miller (1974), comedy Nickelodeon (1976), and another disastrous musical, At Long Last Love (1975, $1.5 million U.S./$6 million cost); after the back-to-back hits of The French Connection and The Exorcist, William Friedkin delivered Sorcerer (1977, $6 million U.S. against a crushing $22 million cost); and Francis Coppola, after a string of commercial and/or critical home runs including The Godfather (1972), The Conversation (1974), The Godfather Part II (1974), and Apocalypse Now (1979), turned out One from the Heart »

Fyc Hell: Alice in Uglyland and the Art of Self Editing.

29 October 2010 12:10 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With screeners arriving and campaign parties starting, awards season is raring to go. The Oscar Fyc ad pictured below, the first of the season, arrived today in my mailbox from the delightful Guy Lodge with the completely sensible command "Stop. This. Now." As many of you know, I loathe Tim Burton's Mia in Uglyland but I'm not dumb enough to think that it doesn't have a shot at a handful of Oscar nominations. Money, and hundreds of millions of bags worth of it -- each much larger than the Red Queen's oversized noggin -- goes a long way towards warming industry hearts.

The ad starts with the Claudia Puig USA Today quote "The movie should come with a note marked 'Watch me' for its extravagance of whimsy and wonder." and proceeds to list the names of 28 awards hopefuls (some of whom are very talented indeed... but... 'stop. this. now. »

Are Oscarologists crazy to snub Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter?

19 October 2010 4:58 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Since Disney has decided to invest heavily in an Oscar campaign for "Alice in Wonderland," that will probably mean loud tub-thumping ahead for Johnny Depp, who has never won an Oscar. He was nominated for three lead performances: "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003), "Finding Neverland" (2004), "Sweeney Todd" (2007). Now he'd be nommed for a comedic, cartoonish role, a type seldom appreciated by Oscar voters. Even academy darling Jack Nicholson wasn't nominated for his turn as the Joker in "Batman" (1989) after nabbing a bid at the Golden Globes. Alas, Heath Ledger was nommed, and even won, as the Joker in "The Dark Knight" (2008). Right now Depp competes »
