Movie Trailer: ‘Killing Bono’

It’s been almost a year since we heard anything about Killing Bono. Last time we checked in on the film, Nick Hamm was about to direct Ben Barnes, Krysten Ritter, Robert Sheehan, Charlie Cox and Jason Byrne in the movie based on Neil McCormick‘s book about being in a band that struggled in the shadow of U2 during the mega-band’s formative years.

Now the film is done and there is a trailer, which you can see after the break. Read More »

Teaser Trailer: ‘There Be Dragons,’ from Roland Joffe

there-be-dragons-1

Fair warning: this teaser trailer for Roland Joffe‘s Spanish Civil War tale There Be Dragons has actually been online since the summer, but we’d completely missed its existence until the recent launch of a new website to promote the film. Joffe’s film sounds superficially like it falls right into the middle of a classic conceit: we see two brothers, one of whome becomes a priest, the other a fascist spy.

But the movie is also about St. JosemarĂ­a Escrivá, founder of the Catholic organization Opus Dei, aka ‘work of God,’ which ” teaches that everyone is called to holiness and that ordinary life is a path to sanctity.” And in case that’s a turn-off (it shouldn’t be!) the trailer looks purdy.

It’s rare that I look at a TV project and wish that it were a $100m theatrical production instead of a much smaller television affair. I like seeing what creative teams can do with ingenuity rather than money, so almost never think something should be more expensive. But I do wish the $25m television version of Moby Dick, currently shooting, had more cash to work with. Oceangoing stories look amazing on the big screen, and we get so few of them. Still, with the cast assembled for this version of Herman Melville’s novel, I’ll take what I can get. Read More »

Stardust Movie Poster/Advertisement

Stardust Ad/PosterIs this the new poster for the big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust? Not exactly. This poster image appeared in this weekend’s LA Times Sunday edition (via KungFuVideo). I have heard nothing but incredible things about Gaiman’s work. My only exposure has been Mirrormask, which I’ve been told is not an accurate indication of his work. Check out some of our previous Stardust coverage: Movie Trailer (HD available), Unofficial Movie Trailer, 30 Production Photos. You can also click on the image to the right to see a much larger version.

Stardust follows a young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) who tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village.

Stardust hits theaters on July 27th 2007.

Stardust

Last week we posted an unofficial trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust (30 photos, Unofficial Movie Trailer). I complained about the effects and on the nose dialogue. Gaiman fans told me to wait for the real trailer to make judgement. Well now the real trailer is on Yahoo! Movies in full High Def. I must admit, the new trailer looks a lot better. The special effects even look finished. Now I actually want to see this film. So watch the new trailer at one of the links below:

Stardust Movie Poster Revealed

Stardust Movie PosterCanMag has posted what appears to be the first poster for Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust (30 photos, Unofficial Movie Trailer). Click on the photo to the left for a larger version. I’m guessing that this is just one of the character posters as Michelle Pfeiffer is one of the supporting characters.

Stardust Movie Trailer Revealed

Don’t kill me but I must admit: I’m not a Neil Gaiman fan. It’s not that I don’t like him, it’s just that I haven’t found time to read his work (that, and the coloring on the first Sandman trade paperbacks scare me away). Anyway, most geeks swear by him. If Joss Whedon is their god, Gaiman is their Jesus. And I’m not saying that Gaiman’s remains were just found in a cave by the guy who made Titanic. Okay, my analogy really isn’t working. Either way, my only encounter with Gaiman’s work was through the Mirrormask film, which I’ve been told isn’t a great representation of what he’s capable of.
