The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: We will all burn together!
New Robocop Joel Kinnaman said that the new movie is not rehash of the original one. Dude certainly has faith in his director~
It’s a great responsibility. Especially in a world where there’s a lot of remakes being made for cynical economic reasons. But having José as a director washed away those fears. The biggest respect you can pay to the original is to acknowledge it as a very intelligent movie, and try to make something intelligent to follow it up with, and not just replay old catchphrases. We kept one or two as a wink to the fans, but we did not try to remake the movie.
Luke Evans talked about The Crow, said he doesn’t believe in “cursed movies” and that the movie will be more based on the comicbook.
I’m not one of those superstitious people. It is incredibly sad that Brandon died making the movie. He was a very talented actor. It is a very beautiful story, The Crow. It is a very tragic story with huge emotional themes. We plan to tell the story differently and with a lot of integrity to the original comic book.
Nicolas Cage said that, while he doesn’t read comicbooks as a 49-year-old man, he sure remembers them fondly from his youth. He commented that Warner was probably too scared to do the Superman version he and Tim Burton had in mind.
Look, I’m not going to be one of these guys that’s going to be, like, lamenting things. But is Tim Burton one of my favourite directors? Yes. Did I see some of the drawings of where he wanted to go? Yes. And I will tell you, they were fantastic and it would have been a mind-blowing experience. Did I have a concept of how to play the character? Yes, and I can tell you it would have been gutsy. So maybe Warner Brothers got scared because they had two artists that weren’t afraid to take chances.
First Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes posters! Covered in war paint, these sure ain’t happy apes!
Edgar Wright talked about the challenge it is making Ant-Man and keep it PG-13~
It’s a challenge to do. Shaun and Hot Fuzz and World’s End are all R-rated films. I like the challenge of making a PG-13 film. Because you’ve got to entertain in a different way. You don’t have the same tools. It’s also different in terms of Scott Pilgrim. They’re both adaptations. It’s nice to be able to do an adaptation.
Marvel has released an animated trailer for their new comicbook event, “Inhumanity”!
Benedict Cumberbatch has had a lot of interview lately! Mostly because of his titular role in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Smaug is the ultimate symbol of the corruption of power. He’s a sleepy serpent on top of his pile of gold. It brings him nothing but a damp, dank retirement, no joy or humour. He’s vainglorious and proud of his own power and wealth, but it has essentially ruined him.
And boy, was he enthusiastic about his role! Poor dude even hurt himself trying to reach those octaves!
I ripped into my vocal chords quite literally, I had blood at the end of the day from tearing my throat to pieces . . . I dropped my voice a couple of octaves so I could then layer on nuance and character colour.
And, as much as he is glad to be the “It” actor lately, he sure hopes for a long career the likes of Sir Ian Mckellen’s~
My eyes on the prize is doing this for the next forty-odd years, I guess, judging by McKellen’s standards. He’s a man in his early seventies still giving extraordinary, sensational, entertaining, inventive and energized performances.
Here’s the trailer (and some more pictures) of “Day of the Doctor”. Christmas needs to come faster, dammit!
