Kirk poster Spock poster

Star Trek may appear in Imax, according to First Showing.

Director J.J. Abrams’ big screen reboot of Star Trek may boldly go where many high profile feature films of late have gone before (and with great success): to IMAX theaters.

While Star Trek wasn’t shot on IMAX cameras the way that The Dark Knight was, First Showing claims that the movie “will be converted to 70mm for projection on IMAX screens. Star Trek will hit both regular and IMAX theaters everywhere on May 8th next summer.”

It’s official! Summit Entertainment has announced that the studio will be going forward with New Moon Rising, the sequel to Twilight.

Summit Entertainment announced Saturday that the studio is officially moving forward with the production of New Moon, the second installment of its filmed franchise Twilight, the action-packed, modern day vampire love story. The movie will be based on the second novel in author Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series titled, New Moon. The first movie in the Twilight franchise, the self-titled Twilight, arrived in theaters this weekend to sold-out showings.

Stephenie Meyer stated, “I don’t think any other author has had a more positive experience with the makers of her movie adaptation than I have had with Summit Entertainment. I’m thrilled to have the chance to work with them again on New Moon.”

Starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, Twilight tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen, a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away.

Downey Jr. Talks Avengers

Iron Man star, Robert Downey Jr. talks about the “dangers of bring Marvel’s The Avengers to the big screen.”

“If we don’t get it right it’s really, really going to suck.” So says Robert Downey, Jr. about the dangers of bringing Marvel’s The Avengers to the big screen.

“It has to be the crowning blow of Marvel’s best and brightest because it’s the hardest thing to get right. It’s tough to spin all the plates for one of these characters,” Downey recently told MTV from the London set of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes.

The star added, “The danger you run with colliding all these worlds is [director] Jon [Favreau] was very certain that Iron Man should be set in a very realistic world. Nothing that happened in Iron Man is really outside the realm of possibility. Once you start talking about Valhalla and supersized super-soldiers and jolly green giants it warrants much further discussion.”

Hancock Meet Dave Space Chimps

These are the new DVD releases for November 25th.

  • Hancock (Comedy) – Cast: Will Smith, Charlize Theron, Jason Bateman, Lauren Hill; Directed by: Peter Berg

    Synopsis: There are heroes… there are superheroes… and then there’s Hancock (Will Smith). With great power comes great responsibility – everyone knows that – everyone, that is, but Hancock. Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock’s well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. The public has finally had enough – as grateful as they are to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what they ever did to deserve this guy. Hancock isn’t the kind of man who cares what other people think – until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), and the sardonic superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be Hancock’s greatest challenge yet – and a task that may prove impossible as Ray’s wife, Mary (Charlize Theron), insists that he’s a lost cause.

  • Space Chimps (Animation) -Cast: Featuring the vocal talents of: Andy Samberg, Cheryl Hines, Patrick Warburton, Jeff Daniels, Kenan Thompson, Kristin Chenoweth, Stanley Tucci; Directed by: Kirk De Micco

    Synopsis: Jeff Daniels, Stanley Tucci, Cheryl Hines, and Andy Samberg lend their voices to this computer-animated comedy following the descendants of the first chimps in space as they blast off for fun and adventure on a far-away planet. Ham III (Samberg) is the grandson of Ham, the first-ever chimp astronaut. This ne’er-do-well chimp may not be the most qualified ape for the job, but a scheming senator (Tucci) has recruited him for a most dangerous mission. It seems that a powerful tyrant (Daniels) has overtaken an alien world, and now it’s up to Ham III and his trusty simian crew (Hines and Patrick Warburton) to help overthrow the deep-space despot. Perhaps with some training from Ham III’s mentor (Kenan Thompson) and the help of a friendly alien (Kristin Chenoweth) this fearless group of anthropoids can make the universe a safer place for aliens and humans alike.

  • Movie Review: Bolt

    Friday, November 21st, 2008


    Bolt gets 8 out of 10 stars for being smart and insightful.

    Thanks to a string of commercial disappointments (or at most, underwhelming successes), Disney Animation has been in dire need of a revamp for several years. Notwithstanding the fact that computer-animated movies as a whole have dominated the family-film market for a decade or more, the looming presence of their cash-cow Pixar has overshadowed virtually every project during that time – which is no doubt one of the major reasons Pixar CEO and major-domo John Lasseter was appointed the chief creative officer for WDA a few years back.

    Because of the labyrinthine production schedule of animated films, the official first effort under Lasseter’s auspices hasn’t arrived until now and perhaps unsurprisingly it bears many of the hallmarks of Pixar’s classics. Unfortunately, however, it doesn’t quite live up to their overall quality, which is why Bolt is a good but not great film which should earn Walt Disney Animation a deserved hit even if it won’t quite return them to the heights of their own creative and commercial heyday.

    John Travolta plays Bolt, the canine star of a hit TV series about a girl named Penny (Miley Cyrus) who escapes capture by the evil Dr. Calico (Malcolm McDowell) with the help of her superpowered dog. When a mix-up results in Bolt being shipped to the rough-and-tumble streets of New York, he begins to make a valiant trek back across the country to Hollywood for a reunion with Penny. Because he has been deluded into believing that everything in the show is real, Bolt targets an alley cat named Mittens (Susie Essman) as a minion of Dr. Calico and enlists her to help him get home. In the meantime, the duo picks up a TV-obsessed hamster named Rhino (Mark Walton) along the way who helps inspire Bolt to feats of greatness after he begins to realize that he is just an average dog.

    Check out this Twilight, video interview with IGN’s Todd Gilchrist and Eric Morrow

    Twilight is an action-packed, modern-day love story between a teenage girl and a vampire. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a little bit different, never caring about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix high school. When her mother re-marries and sends Bella to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn’t expect much of anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a boy unlike any she’s ever met. Edward is a vampire, but he doesn’t have fangs and his family is unique in that they choose not to drink human blood. Intelligent and witty, Edward sees straight into Bella’s soul. Soon, they are swept up in a passionate, thrilling and unorthodox romance. To Edward, Bella is what he has waited 90 years for -– a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. But what will Edward & Bella do when a clan of new vampires -– James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi) and Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre) -– come to town and threaten to disrupt their way of life?

    Video Interview: Bolt

    Thursday, November 20th, 2008


    For super-dog Bolt (voice of John Travolta), every day is filled with adventure, danger and intrigue-at least until the cameras stop rolling. When the star of a hit TV show is accidentally shipped from his Hollywood soundstage to New York City, he begins his biggest adventure yet-a cross-country journey through the real world. Armed only with the delusions that all his amazing feats and powers are real, and with the help of two unlikely traveling companions: a jaded, abandoned housecat named Mittens (voice of Susie Essman) and a TV-obsessed hamster in a plastic ball named Rhino, Bolt discovers he doesn’t need superpowers to be a hero.

    Bolt debuts in theaters, November 21st.

    Movie Review: Twilight

    Thursday, November 20th, 2008

    Twilight Poster

    Just jump right in and read the the review for the upcoming, Twilight.

    According to my girlfriend – who has become obsessed with the series after reading all of the books in record time – Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight is all about adolescent feelings and romantic longing with a little bit of vampirism thrown in to make the proceedings more fanciful. Given the glut of male wish-fulfillment that typically occupies the silver screen, there’s certainly nothing wrong with any of those elements. Interestingly, however, Catherine Hardwicke’s adaptation of the acclaimed first novel actually works best when it’s indulging those thoughts and feelings most, producing an adaptation that’s introspective and romantic enough to satisfy the franchise’s diehard fans even if its clumsy execution is likely to distract those not already fully devoted to its combination of vampire mythology and teenage female melancholy.

    Kristen Stewart (Into the Wild) plays Bella Swan, an introverted 17-year old who relocates to Forks, Washington after her mom Renee (Sarah Clarke) leaves their Phoenix home to be with her new husband. Moving in with her dad Charlie (Billy Burke), Bella slowly adjusts to a new school and a new life, developing a tight-knit group of friends despite her inescapable self-consciousness and physical awkwardness. But when she meets Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), she becomes fascinated by his elusive presence in the lunchroom, and eventually, next to her in class. As the two of them begin a tenuous courtship, Bella discovers the reason for his mysterious, withdrawn disposition: Edward and the rest of his family are vampires, although they feed only on animals for sustenance. Their openness with one another soon blossoms into a passionate romance, but a vampire named James (Cam Gigandet) sets his sights on Bella, culminating in a battle that forces the couple to confront not only the immediate danger, but the ultimate meaning of their love for one another.

    Superficially, the prospect of watching a movie that focuses on how awkward teenage girls feel sounds like some sort of Saw-style psychological trap – one to make me appreciate how good my life is or at least appreciate that the majority of movies these days seem to focus mostly on blowing stuff up. But Hardwicke, whose directorial debut Thirteen (and to a lesser extent its follow-up, Lords of Dogtown) suggests she believes most teenagers are vile, sex-addicted drug addicts, crafts a believable and incredibly sympathetic portrait of teen angst which – bloodsucking melodrama aside – should resonate with viewers of all ages, much less genders. That Bella’s constant stream of doubt, insecurities and second guesses always feels palpable and authentic is not merely a testament to Stewart’s masterfully subtle performance but the source material and the script’s ability to truly deconstruct that impassioned, unfocused but undeniable mindset.
