President Barack Obama was scheduled to speak this morning at a campaign stop in Fort Myers, Florida. Instead of speaking about his upcoming re-election campaign, he instead delivered a speech on the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
If you’ve been paying attention to the Marvel Universe lately, this news shouldn’t surprise you but today we have word on what will be the next new (read: non-sequel) superhero movie from Marvel Studios. Hint: it’s not ‘Black Panther’ or ‘Ant-Man’…
In 1984, a young Disney animator named Tim Burton directed his live-action debut, the short film ‘Frankenweenie.’ Disney planned for the short to run before a theatrical re-release of ‘Pinocchio,’ but once they screened the completed project, they fired Burton on the spot.
Burton, of course, went on to a somewhat legendary career as a filmmaker and in 2010 made Disney over $1 billion on ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ And now, in 2012, Disney is finally OK with the idea of a little boy who brings his dead dog back to life.
It’s only fitting that after the 2012 Oscars, Jimmy Kimmel would debut a trailer for the most epic, star-studded movie of all-time. It’s over eight minutes long, stars 2012 Oscar nominees George Clooney, Gary Oldman, and Meryl Streep plus Matt Damon, Jessica Alba, Samuel L. Jackson, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks, Cameron Diaz and Gabourey Sidibe as Black Hitler (who threatens Earth while riding on a meteor). It is, as Kimmel himself put it, the “greatest movie ever made.”
The 2012 Oscars managed to include the expected and shocks all at the same time. Odds on favorite, ‘The Artist’, won five awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Director for Michel Hazanivicius. But ‘Hugo’ gave it a run for its money, also bringing home five awards (though none in the major categories).
This summer’s animated adventure ‘Brave’ is notable for a few reasons: One, it’s Pixar’s first foray into the world of fairy tales (something their partners at Disney are quite good at) and, two, it’s Pixar’s first female-driven film. While the plot seems reminiscent of ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ – a young Scot fights the odds to battle a fierce beast while becoming a valiant hero – it’s the little things we see in this new extended clip that set ‘Brave’ apart from the rest.
For every role that can be considered “Oscar bait,” there are the roles that are completely out of the norm for the Academy Awards. The actors on our list all gave performances that have transcended Oscars and are more well-known for their contributions to pop culture.
Disney’s upcoming movie, ‘Oz, the Great and Powerful’, boasts an A-list cast — Oscar nominees James Franco, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams plus Mila Kunis — and a storyline that will take audiences to the origin of the Wizard himself. But Warner Bros., who holds the rights to ‘The Wizard of Oz’ film, would like to put a stop to that film.
‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ is a real movie. And this is not, despite its ridiculous premise, something made on the cheap that will go direct-to-DVD. This is a big summer movie from Fox, produced by Tim Burton, directed by that guy who directed ‘Wanted’ and starring some familiar faces. Based on the first trailer, it could either be awesome or completely stupid – so which is it?
