Star Trek Casting Comparison

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

J.J. Abrams has assembled his cast for the upcoming Star Trek XI. Read on to find out how the new crew measures up to their predecessors.

Captain James T. Kirk

Actors: Chris Pine is in negotiations to take over from William Shatner. Pine’s schedule, however, is reportedly an issue so it’s possible that another actor (say, Poseidon’s Mike Vogel) may sit in the captain’s chair instead. Pine is a relative unknown to most audiences, with his most high profile films roles to date being Lindsay Lohan’s love interest in Just My Luck and as one of the kill-crazy Tremor brothers in Smokin’ Aces. At 27, Pine is eight years younger than Shatner was when he first portrayed James Tiberius Kirk, but since this film will supposedly be a “first adventure” story then that could work. Physically, Pine doesn’t bear too much of a resemblance to The Shat (especially the eyes), but we do think it’s ironic that one actor with thinning hair has been tapped to play another who was a trailblazer in the field of toupees and hair weaves.

Jane Austen Book Club

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

jane_austen_book_club_small.jpg

Synopsis:
As five women and one enigmatic man meet to discuss the works of Jane Austen, they find their love lives playing out in a 21st century version of her novels. Sylvia (Amy Brenneman), is shocked when her husband Daniel (Jimmy Smits), leaves her after 20 plus years and three children. Jocelyn (Maria Bello), her unmarried best friend, distracts herself from her unacknowledged loneliness by breeding dogs. Prudie (Emily Blunt) is a young French teacher, in possession of a worthy husband yet distracted by persistent fantasies about sex with another man. The many-times married Bernadette (Kathy Baker) develops a yearning for one more chance at happiness. Beautiful, risk-taking Allegra (Maggie Grace), Sylvia and Daniel’s lesbian daughter, has quit talking to her lover. And Grigg (Hugh Dancy), a young science-fiction fan and computer whiz, seems horribly both out of place and obliviously at ease as the only man to be invited into the book circle.

Six book club members, six Austen books, six interwoven storylines over six months in the busy modern setting of Sacramento, where city and suburban sprawl meet natural beauty. While the contemporary stories never slavishly parallel the Austen plots, the six characters find echoes, predictions, warnings and wisdom about their own trajectories within Austen’s beloved narratives.

Cast: Maria Bello, Emily Blunt, Kathy Baker, Amy Brenneman, Maggie Grace, Jimmy Smits; Directed by: Robin Swicord

500 Hollywood Movie Posters Up for Auction

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

frankenstein-blog-2.jpg

On September 25, 2007 five hundred extremely rare movie posters from the Andrewski collection went up for auction. The collection included such classics as: Casablanca, The Wizard of Oz (French version: Le Magicien d’Oz) and Frankenstein.

It was the will of the late Gene Andrewski that other people get what he had, an opportunity to own some of the rarest, boldest and most beautiful movie posters of what he called “Hollywood’s glamour era.”

This Saturday, more than 500 items from the vast Andrewski collection of posters and lobby cards will be go up for auction at Ritchies in Toronto.

Because the items are drawn from what Ritchies auction administrator John Miller calls “the core of Mr. Andrewski’s collection” – items the collector couldn’t bear to part with while he was still alive – many elements haven’t been available at auction for years. Some, according to Miller, “have been out of the public eye for four decades.”

For the aficionado as well as the casual buff, it’s an overwhelming assembly – estimated values between $100 and $5,000 per piece – of vintage pop-cultural arcana.

The collection includes such top-tier classics as Casablanca, The Wizard of Oz (French version: Le Magicien d’Oz) and Frankenstein – expected to be the star of the show and bring upwards of $4,000 – to such savoury obscurities as They Came to Bomb America, Juke Girl and Susan and God.

Spanning from the heyday of Laurel and Hardy to the silver-screen coming out of the Fab Four, it offers an alternately lurid and delightful glimpse into the way dreams were marketed.

Bringing Posters to Life – The Next-Generation of Movie Posters

Monday, October 15th, 2007

bringing-posters-to-life-small.jpg

Helmut Kungl, president of XYZ RGB Inc., is set to revolutionize the poster industry with the next-generation of movie posters.

It’s as if it were pulled from the future — a poster of a lively soccer player juggling a ball as you walk past.

But, it’s not simply a concept. An Ottawa company has already figured out how to bring a paper-thin piece of plastic to life, and now is ready to unleash its moving ads on the world.

“When you look at the technology behind this, the only way to describe it is magic,” said Helmut Kungl, president of XYZ RGB Inc. “It’s like that newspaper in Harry Potter, the one that keeps looping the picture over and over.”

Using cutting-edge technologies, XYZ RGB can turn an eight-second video into a full-colour hologram and place it in a plastic film that can be posted in malls, pasted to billboards or even wrapped around a can of soup.

The energy needed to make it work? Only a source of light.The film industry is the first target for what XYZ RGB bills as the next-generation movie poster. The company can place a short clip right in the poster, giving people a chance to view a scene without going into the theatre.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age Review

Friday, October 12th, 2007

cate-blanchett-still.jpg

CATE BLANCHETT

Elizabeth: The Golden Age is a lavish historical thriller.

Almost a decade after they lit up the screen in the acclaimed Elizabeth, Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, and director Shekhar Kapur reunite for the follow-up Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Even more lavishly produced than its predecessor, Elizabeth: The Golden Age is, like the 1998 film, a thriller gussied up as a costume drama, but it makes the same mistake that so many sequels do: it mistakes bigger for better, overwhelming the viewer with so much music, spectacle and melodrama as to nearly squelch the human drama.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age opens in 1585 and finds the queen still being harangued by her staff, notably chief adviser and spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham (Rush), about finding a husband and producing an heir. She entertains a number of royal suitors, but is charmed the most by the dashing Sir Walter Raleigh (Clive Owen) — a pirate and explorer who has just recently returned from the New World. Raleigh tells the monarch and her court about how he established a colony there in honor of the Virgin Queen — Virginia — and shows off the gifts he has brought back for her, namely tobacco, potatoes and gold.

We Own The Night Review

Friday, October 12th, 2007

Joaquin Phoenix shines in We Own the Night.

We Own The Night reunites director James Gray with two of the stars of his crime drama The Yards, Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg. The film, penned by Gray, takes its title from the motto of the NYPD’s 1980s street crimes unit.

Set in 1988, the story follows Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix), the manager of El Caribe — a Russian-owned nightclub in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach. He lives a carefree life with his beloved girlfriend Amanda (Eva Mendes), spending every night in a drug-induced haze of music and partying. Bobby, however, is not who he seems; his real surname is Grusinsky and he’s the black sheep son in a family of NYPD officers.

Bobby’s brother, Joseph (Wahlberg), and dad, Burt (Robert Duvall), are veteran cops out to bring down the burgeoning Russian mob — a mission that leads them to raid El Caribe. This bust not only enrages Bobby, but also incurs the wrath of vicious gangster Vadim Nezhinski (Alex Veadov) who seeks to get even with the cops who crossed him.

After Vadim retaliates, Bobby and Amanda find themselves caught in a war between the cops and the mob. Bobby finally chooses which side he’s on and tries to make amends by helping the cops target Vadim, who doesn’t realize Bobby is actually a Grusinsky.
