The Watchmen Set Visit

Watchmen DS 1 Sheet Movie Poster Advance Style D Shop Now >

The staff of IGN visits The Watchmen’s set and they have some good stuff.

All it takes is the most cursory stroll through the “brownstone” belonging to Dan Dreiberg (a.k.a. Nite Owl II) to realize that something special is happening on the set of Watchmen.

Everywhere you look there’s some new, telling detail in the environment of the reluctantly retired, slightly gone-to-seed superhero. Owlish and avian-themed tchokes dominate in the form of clocks, bookends, statuettes and other objects d’art, suggesting that Dreiberg’s costumed alter ego is never far from his mind. Framed photographs and old news clipping line his mantle – not just snapshots of his own adventuring as Nite-Owl, but nostalgic black and white glimpses of the very first superheroes, the Minutemen, that evoke Dreiberg’s enduring nostalgia.

And next to his reading chair sits a stack of 1985 comic books, authentic to the story’s era, indicating that fantasy and escapism is never more than an arm’s reach away.

Of course, when Watchmen – the ultimate post-modern take on the superhero phenomenon based on the 1986 comic book miniseries by writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons, which was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 best novels from 1923 to the present – finally makes its long trek from printed page to the big screen, only a handful of these minute details may get a few seconds of screen time.

But showing off every nuance in the detail-drenched environment isn’t what director Zack Snyder (300) has in mind. Instead, he’s chosen to soak his set in tiny but evocative minutiae simply because it adds that much more atmosphere to the proceedings – if audiences happen to catch a glimpse in repeated viewings, the same way similar details revealed themselves to readers exploring the book a second, third, tenth time, he’s just fine with that.

“In this movie there’s so much stuff to photograph, whether it be a button or a Gunga Diner container,” says Snyder, who considers himself just one of the cult of Watchmen worshippers hungry to see the comic book’s world fully realized. “Everything has fetish relevance.”

Q&A: Danny Boyle

Slumdog Millionaire DS 1 Sheet Movie Poster Shop Now >

Danny Boyle sits down with Chris Tilly of IGN UK, to discuss directing Slumdog Millionaire.

Danny Boyle discusses directing his critically acclaimed new film Slumdog Millionaire, the rags-to-riches tale of an orphan’s efforts to win back his lost love by appearing on the Indian Who Wants to be a Millionaire?.

IGN: When you initially heard about the project, were you put off by the Who Wants to be a Millionaire hook?

Danny Boyle: They didn’t really pitch it. I don’t think the agent was very interested, he said “It’s a film about Who Wants to be a Millionaire?.” But it was written by Simon Beaufoy, who had written The Full Monty, so you have to read a bit of that, at least, but I didn’t want to make a film about a gameshow. But they didn’t mention it was set in India, and they certainly didn’t mention the way the gameshow was used in the story, so I was in after about 10 or 15 pages of it. I remember thinking, this is it!

And it’s weird, it only happens occasionally that you get kidnapped by a script. You don’t wait till you get to the end or anything, you can feel it happening to you. And when I look back at my decision, it’s not based on the full story – the unravelling of why he’s on the show – so I think it’s based on the city. It’s the set-up – meeting the kid, seeing him on the show, seeing him in the slum, and the city – those ingredients made me do it.

IGN: What was it like shooting in the city – did you feel out of your comfort zone?

Boyle: Yes, absolutely. But you do it for that reason, because your comfort zone is not a good place to make a film in, in my opinion. You should get out of your comfort zone as much as possible, you shouldn’t have a clue what you’re doing, ideally, and yet be able to make sense of it somehow. That’s the kind of equation you want.

With a film in India, you have to hire people. I made a mistake on The Beach. I took hundreds of people from here who knew how to do it theoretically, and it’s not the right way to do those films, especially nowadays. You have to try and build a film from the inside. So we took virtually no one, and got a Bollywood crew. They are the people to deal with, and they are the people that make the film feel like it starts to belong. Now it doesn’t quite belong there, because the culture is different, and there is a Britishness about the film – I think its realism – that gives it its British flavour.

Because our bedrock, mine and Simon’s, is always realism. That’s what we start with. That’s how we judge everthing – do you believe that person would be doing that job at that moment? You judge everything like that as a British director – that’s the culture we come out of. But then it kind of moves on and picks up more of the culture of Bombay, which is coincidence; which is melodrama; which is this extraordinary passion for life; which is violence and beauty at one and the same time.

IGN: Did you have to be careful of striking a balance between plundering the culture, and yet remaining respectful towards it?

Boyle: Yes, and you have to work your way through that, it’s a really good way of putting it. Because you are an outsider, and you’ve really got to get people to trust you, and you have to build that trust over a long period of time as you prepare. There are certain key people that you make that relationship with and they basically become your co-directors.

And I can only credit one as co-director, which is the casting director Loveleen Tanden, because the first assistant director, for Guild reasons, you can’t credit him as the co-director, nor the sound guy, but those three people made the biggest difference for the film. Normally, it’s your cinematographer, or your designer, or your lead actor, or your writer – that key relationship. But for me on this one it was those three people, local people on the crew from Bombay. Read more…

Movie Review: Friday the 13th (2009)

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Friday the 13th DS 1 Sheet Movie Poster - Style A Shop Now >

This Friday the 13th reboot is definitely a hit. Read the review:

When news of a Friday the 13th remake hit the Internet, there was a massive outcry from genre fans. One contingent wanted to preserve the integrity of the old series, while the other asked, “Why does the world need another Jason movie?” The truth of the matter is, Friday the 13th needed a remake more than any other existing horror franchise. Although Jason Voorhees is an iconic horror figure, the previous 11 films never settled on one specific identity for the character. Rather, each new creative team that tackled the character handled him differently, resulting in a dude with a serious identity crisis.

Fear not, however, as this “reboot” solidifies once and for all just who Jason is: a motivated killer with speed, strength, vision and a revenge streak that runs blackheart-deep. By firming up the details of his origin, establishing some supernatural elements (Hint: Jason is always really, really hard to kill.), and lending purpose to his body-mangling rampages, the film establishes firm ground for the character’s mythos and makes him much scarier as a result.

The team of producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller and director Marcus Nispel, who combined to make the excellent Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, know what it takes to modernize and distill an iconic series down to its key elements. Here, they hone the character but keep the dark, playful spirit of the originals. Fans will instantly recognize and settle into the tone — a wild, horrific ride that’s meant to entertain.

The film does a good job of compressing Jason’s mythology from the original four Friday the 13th films into a short time frame. Recapping/retelling the events of the original film takes no more than five minutes, and immediately audiences are clued into why Jason grows into a bloodthirsty creature of legend. He grows up quick and by the time the opening credits roll, he has already decimated one group of campers with his trademark machete. As the film progresses, we get a much deeper sense of the Jason character. He has created a lair of sorts and lives off the land. This is a much craftier Jason and much more human, which helps to ground the story.

    Angels and Demons DS 1 Sheet Movie Posters

    The team behind the global phenomenon “The Da Vinci Code” returns for the highly anticipated “Angels & Demons,” based upon the bestselling novel by Dan Brown. Tom Hanks reprises his role as Harvard religious expert Robert Langdon, who once again finds that forces with ancient roots are willing to stop at nothing, even murder, to advance their goals. Ron Howard again directs the film, which is produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, and John Calley. The screenplay is by David Koepp and Akiva Goldsman.

    When Langdon discovers evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati – the most powerful underground organization in history – he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the secret organization’s most despised enemy: the Catholic Church. When Langdon learns that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, he jets to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra will follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican’s only hope for survival.
