New Zealand’s Animation Studio Huhu Joins With Chinese Partners for ‘Mosley’

New Zealand’s Animation Studio Huhu Joins With Chinese Partners for ‘Mosley’
Director Kirby Adkins says his greatest fear about “Mosley,” his ambitious animated feature about fantasy creatures called thoriphants, was that too many compromises would have to get made along the way — and that the movie would become “screwed up.”

Making “Mosley” as an international production — it is the first film to make use of the bilateral New Zealand-China treaty — and delivering a nuanced, family story that goes beyond purely kids’ entertainment, both seem to add to the risks.

Previously called “Beast of Burden,” the film follows the eponymous hero Mosley and his family of intelligent four-legged creatures who have the ability to speak like humans but who have been cursed to live a life of servitude. In an attempt to free his family, Mosley embarks on a perilous journey to find the mythical land of Kinesareth.

That it avoided most pitfalls and has now begun its theatrical career, kicking off through Rialto in New Zealand,

Dolph Lundgren says he and Jason Momoa “suffered a lot” during Aquaman shoot

The Expendables and Aquaman star Dolph Lundgren has admitted he and Jason Momoa were “suffering a lot” when shooting the underwater scenes for the DC blockbuster as the harnesses were cutting into the “male anatomy.”

During the FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention (via ComicBook.com), Lundgren stated:

“So you’re basically hanging in these wires, you have the harness on, and they pull you up about 20 feet, 30 feet in the air. And you’re hanging up there trying to appear like you’re swimming when you’re talking to the other guy, and there’s absolutely nothing around, there’s just blue screen.”

“It was a new experience for me. And the hair, they dyed afterwards as well. The hair moving, it’s all added in the computer. So when I saw the movie, it was a bit of a shock,” Lundgren added. “And the thing is, hanging in that harness,

Movie Review – Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019)

Dora and the Lost City of Gold, 2019.

Directed by James Bobin.

Starring Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Wahlberg, Benicio del Toro, Eugenio Derbez, Temuera Morrison, Eva Longoria, Michael Peña, Nicholas Coombe, Madeleine Madden, Adriana Barraza, Q’orianka Kilcher, Madelyn Miranda, Malachi Barton, Joey Vieira, Pia Miller, and Danny Trejo

Synopsis:

Dora, a teenage explorer, leads her friends on an adventure to save her parents and solve the mystery behind a lost city of gold.

The smartest creative decision for Dora and the Lost City of Gold isn’t wisely turning the beloved cast of animated children into live-action teenagers, although it is an intelligent approach to adapting the long-standing popular cartoon. What really makes this movie pop is the commitment to maintaining Dora’s overly cheery and bubbly personality, her unwavering optimism, and her happy-go-lucky excitable be yourself attitude that seems like it shouldn’t work utilizing real people (or at the

Isabela Moner Explores in Next 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold' Trailer

"Oh look, Dora brought a knife on the field trip, everybody." Paramount has revealed the second trailer for Dora and the Lost City of Gold, the live-action Dora the Explorer movie that's hitting theaters coming up later this summer. Young actress Isabela Moner takes on the iconic role of Dora, with the short hair and backpack. Her first big adventure is high school, but of course she quickly ends up in the jungle on a real adventure to save her parents - played by Eva Longoria & Michael Peña. The film also stars Eugenio Derbez, Temuera Morrison, Q'orianka Kilcher, Adriana Barraza, plus Danny Trejo (as the voice of Boots - her little sidekick monkey), and Benicio Del Toro (as the voice of Swiper). This looks super duper goofy and extra cheesy, with more cheese on top. But I guess they know the audience they're playing to ...

Peter Jackson turned down directing Aquaman on two occasions

Peter Jackson, director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, revealed that he turned down the director’s job for Aquaman twice.

Aquaman, directed by James Wan, turned out to be a huge success, surpassing expectations around the world and accumulating a hefty box office sum. But what would the film have been like if Peter Jackson had directed the movie?

The Lord of the Rings helmer has revealed to Empire that he was offered a chance to direct Aquaman twice and twice he turned it down: “He said, ‘Are you a fan of Aquaman?’ I said, ‘No.’ Six months later: ‘Peter, are you a fan of Aquaman?’ I said, ’No, Kevin [Tsujihara], I already told you this.’ I’m not a superhero guy. I read Tintin… Look, films are hard. I only want to make something that I have a deep passion for.”

This certainly seems to have been the right move by Jackson.

Rena Owen explains her quest for unique roles

Rena Owen.

When Rena Owen weighs up whether to accept roles, her main goal is to portray characters who are not the same as or similar to those she’s played before.

That maxim has served the Kiwi actress well in a screen career which spans 30 years since her debut in the Nz police series Shark in the Park.

Currently she is in Hobart playing yet another unique individual – Grace, who runs a community drop-in centre for wayward kids – in The Gloaming, an eight-part drama commissioned by Stan and Disney’s ABC Studios International.

Owen was in Vancouver getting ready to shoot the final episode of the second season of mermaid drama Siren, which screens on Disney’s young-adult Us cable network Freeform, when she was asked to audition for The Gloaming.

Her schedule was so hectic her initial response was that she had no time to do a self-test.

All 10 ‘Star Wars’ Movies Ranked, From ‘A New Hope’ to ‘Solo’

  • The Wrap
Disney promised a new “Star Wars” movie every year after it acquired Lucasfilm, and the saga keeps on keeping on with “Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.” But while many would call themselves “Star Wars” fans, even they will admit that the movies in the saga are by no means created equal.

In reverse order, here is a rundown of the best and worst that these films have to offer.

Fox

10. “Episode I: The Phantom Menace”

We waited 16 years for George Lucas to return to this universe, and what did we get? Trade routes and political intrigue, blood tests for the Force, and perhaps worst of all, Jar Jar Binks. “Menace” isn’t terrible because it’s a kid’s movie; it’s terrible because it’s a terrible kids movie.

‘Aquaman’ Blu-ray Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Ludi Lin, Michael Beach, Randall Park, Graham McTavish | Written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, Will Beall | Directed by James Wan

Directed by James Wan (Furious 7), Aquaman is the latest DC superhero to get the solo movie treatment, having previously appeared in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. The success of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman clearly influenced many a studio memo, because there’s a concerted effort to move away from the doom and gloom of the Zack Snyder DC movies, but the overall results are mixed.

Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) reprises his role as Arthur Curry, a beefy, bearded, seabound superhero who spends his days thwarting pirates and various other aquatic ne’er-do-wells, before returning to his local bar and boozing with his lovelorn dad, Tom (Temuera Morrison). However,

Home Entertainment: ‘Aquaman’ Blu-ray Review

Aquaman Blu-ray review: The latest in a long line of DC superheroes gets the stand-alone movie treatment with a lengthy, visually impressive feature with fan-fave Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry.

The film opens in the past, 1985 Maine to be exact, where a young, single man, Thomas Curry (a de-aged Temuera Morrison) seen rescuing a woman who has been washed up outside his working lighthouse. The woman is Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), who is revealed to be the queen of the underwater nation of Atlantis. The two fall in love and have a young child together, Arthur Curry (Momoa), who shares his mother’s ability to speak with underwater lifeforms. After a visit from a team of hostiles from Atlantis, Atlanna is forced to return back home, leaving Thomas to raise their beloved son on his own.

Review: Aquaman

  • Comicmix
Aquaman is wet and wild fun while not entirely holding together as well as it should. The film, the sixth in the in the loosely-connected DC Extended Universe, continues the momentum started with Wonder Woman. Director James Wan certainly makes the undersea world come to vivid life although I wish he spent a little more time on the world-building and character interrelationships.

We pick up a year after his appearance in the disappointing Justice League and Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) continues to reject his fate as a hero. While he opens the film by stopping a sub full of pirates, including the man who will become Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), it seems an infrequent activity. He’s quickly back to drinking and bar fighting, hoping the world will leave him alone.

Instead, forces are at work to make certain that never happens.

Blu-ray Review – Aquaman (2018)

Aquaman, 2018.

Written and Directed by James Wan.

Starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Nicole Kidman, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Ludi Lin, Temuera Morrison, Michael Beach, Randall Park, Graham McTavish, Djimon Hounsou, John Rhys-Davies, Leigh Whannell, Sophia Forrest, Natalie Safran, and Julie Andrews.

Synopsis:

Arthur Curry, the human-born heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, goes on a quest to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land.

This is a solid, if not slightly uneven entry into the DC Universe. I really enjoyed this film for the amazing visuals and interesting storyline. I felt like Jason Momoa did the role of Aquaman justice in this first solo outing. The movie has so much going on that you have to watch it multiple times to take every little detail in. Director James Wan has lovingly created a world where Atlantis exists and where Aquaman is a beer guzzling,
