Richard Kelly Talks Box Release Shift and Soundtrack

thebox_trailer

Last week Warner Bros made a few scheduling shifts, delaying Richard Kelly‘s sci-fi thriller The Box, once again. This time the film was only pushed back one week, from October 30th to a November 6th release. This film has been delayed so many times that I won’t believe it is out until I see it on the big screen for myself. Director Kelly insisted on Twitter that the change was “good news” and that he was “much happier with this date!”

Harry Knowles has today published a telephone interview with Robert Zemeckis at Aint it Cool. For the most part they talk about A Christmas Carol, detailing the shape the film is in today and how it is going to showcase advances in performance capture technology and so on, but the chatter comes around, with seeming inevitability, to one of Zemckis’ past projects.

Bob Hoskins is appearing in Carol as Fezziwig, past employer of Ebeneezer Scrooge. According to Zemeckis, on set (or, perhaps more properly, “in volume”) conversation touched upon Who Framed Roger Rabbit and a potential return for Eddie Valliant, Hoskins’ character therein. The good news quote, simple as it is, lies beyond this break.

Walt Disney Pictures has released an international (Italian) movie trailer for Robert ZemeckisA Christmas Carol. Disney had previously released some footage from the film, but this is the first trailer. I’m sure this trailer is a lot more impressive when viewed in 3D. Also, I should warn you the recording is very dark and in Italian. Watch the trailer after the jump, and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Trailer Addict have captured a sequence from Backlot Buzz that features Robert Zemeckis and Jim Carrey talking about their upcoming adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, revealing some quite astonishing new art and explaining some of their process. You can see the clip embedded below the break.

I think that I’m in the minority – so far! – in being convinced about this one. The story is a corker, Zemeckis is a fine, fine storyteller and Carrey is a wonderful choice for the various roles he’s been given: Scrooge and the various ghosts. As you’ll hear in the clip, Zemeckis cast one actor in all of those parts as the spectres are readable as projections of Scrooge, facets of his character.
