Studio Ghibli, London

If you've never stepped into the universes of Hayao Miyazaki and co, it's time you discovered what you're missing. These aren't just some of the best animated children's movies ever made; they'e some of the best movies full stop. The vibrant fantasy worlds, airborne adventures and noble junior heroes of Studio Ghibli's movies fascinate kids, but they're richer, more challenging and more psychedelically epic than most of what passes for grown-up fantasy. Avatar looks like Mr Men compared to, say, Princess Mononoke – which deals with similar themes with considerably more nuance. Having first championed them 10 years ago, the Barbican brings back Ghibli classics, from Laputa: Castle In The Sky and My Neighbour Totoro (the best one for young viewers), right up to previews of their latest, Arrietty, a version of The Borrowers.

Scott Silver Talks About Rewriting the Biblical Samson into a Superhero for Francis Lawrence

16 February 2011 9:35 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

More than two years have passed since Warner Bros. first bought the pitch for a "futuristic retelling of Samson and Delilah" to be directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend).  At that time, Scott Silver was known as the screenwriter behind 8 Mile.  Since then, Silver has earned an Oscar nomination for his part in writing The Fighter, which provides an audience to share his plans for Samson.  For instance, when Samson is transplanted from Biblical times to the future, his divinely granted strength qualifies as a superpower. “I'm finishing up something completely different, a superhero movie set in the future for Warner Bros.  It's an original superhero.” Read more of what Silver had to say after the jump. The Fighter went through a notoriously long and variable development period, cycling through Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, and director Darren Aronofsky before it eventually reached the screen.  Silver spoke to Popcorn Biz »

Francis Lawrence and ‘The Fighter’ Screenwriter Transform ‘Samson’ Into a New Superhero Story

16 February 2011 2:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Fighter is a great movie on many levels, and it is powered by a great screenplay by Scott Silver. He has worked with real life characters who are larger than life (he also wrote 8 Mile) and is now turning to a literal superhero. Or perhaps I should say mythic -- even biblical -- superhero, since his new project is based on the story of Samson and Delilah. (Painted above by Anthony van Dyck in 1630.) Speaking to NBC [1], Scott Silver said, I'm finishing up something completely different [than The Fighter], a superhero movie set in the future for Warner Brothers. It's an original superhero. That immediately touched off thoughts of Samson, which we heard about very briefly last year as something Francis Lawrence was producing and would possibly direct after Water For Elephants. Indeed, they're the same project, which makes me wonder about the idea of it being an original hero. But transporting »

Peter Greenaway to Direct Romantic Comedy

14 February 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

That headline is not a typo. Peter Greenaway, who is among the most art-oriented directors alive (Prospero's Books, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover) is set to write and direct his first romantic comedy. The film is called 4 Storms and 2 Babies, and is scheduled to shoot in Amsterdam later this year. Has the whole world gone crazy? Variety [1] says the film is "an unconventional love story about two men and a woman who becomes pregnant after a night of three-way sex with them." Whew! So 4 Storms and 2 Babies won't quite be The Proposal. In fact, this sounds very much like something Peter Greenaway might do. It actually sounds like something the Peter Greenaway of 1988 might do. That's kind of striking, since the director has of late been more interested in films that are either more conceptual art than narrative (The Tulse Luper Suitcases) or rooted in centuries-old art more than anything else. »
