Begin Again trailer

Once was one of the real gems of 2007, a delicate love story about two people brought together by music. Based on the new Begin Again trailer, director John Carney seems to be trying to repeat the trick in 2014, only on a larger scale with bigger stars.

Mark Ruffalo plays a washed up record exec who has just about hit rock bottom — that is, until he chances upon a freshly dumped musician (Keira Knightley) who’s also feeling adrift. The two strike up a collaboration that takes them all over New York City. Music is so central to this film, it was originally titled Can a Song Save Your Life?. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Into the Woods logo

When most people think of Walt Disney films, they think of two genres: the animated musical and the live-action family film. Beauty and the Beast or 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Snow White or Swiss Family Robinson. What’s slightly more rare of late is a blend of the two, the live-action musical, as we’ve seen in films like Mary Poppins, Newsies, Enchanted or The Muppets. These come out much less frequently.

Next year, however, Disney will be releasing two live-action musicals: Muppets Most Wanted and one that’s likely to be their most elaborate and star-studded live action musical to date, Into The Woods.

Directed by Rob Marshall and based on the Tony Award-winning broadway show with music by Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods just began production aimed at a Christmas 2014 release. Below, read the full press release including the list of confirmed cast members, such as Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Christine Baranski and Tracy Ullman.

Now that the Doug Liman-directed version of The Three Musketeers from Warner Bros. has been well and truly back-burnered, there’s nothing to stand in the way of world domination for Paul WS Anderson‘s 3D action-adventure adaptation of the same material. As an opening attack, the first images from Anderson’s film have appeared online.

Anderson‘s 3D adaptation of The Three Musketeers is racing to the big screen. Variety is reporting that Orlando Bloom has signed on to play the Duke of Buckingham and British comedian James Corden has been cast as the servant Planchet.

The Brit List 2009

brit_list

We’ve often referred to The Black List, the annual countdown of favorite scripts compiled by canvassing the opinions of film industry folk, but never before, I believe, The Brit List. The principal with this one is exactly the same, it’s just limited to films out there on the British market. In 2007, the list was topped by The Men Who Stare At Goats, now revving up for release with George Clooney and Ewan McGregor in the leads. The new list is a surprising and most newsworthy affair, not least because of the way it sheds new light on a curious old Sacha Baron Cohen rumour.

Gulliver’s Travels Set Photos

[No photo]

The latest of Gulliver’s travels has brought him here to Oxford, my hometown. Or near enough – the film shoot has set up for a couple of weeks of on-location work at Blenheim Palace, just a few miles down the road from the University town I call home.

From the various pap snaps of the shooting taking place, it looks like most of the main Gulliver’s Travels cast are on hand – Jack Black, Emily Blunt and Catherine Tate as well as James Corden and Billy Connolly who I did not previously know to be involved. A sampling of the pictures after the break, revealing the costumes, the pageantry and the all-American game that Gulliver appears to be exporting.

First Full Trailer For Lesbian Vampire Killers

wallpaper3
The posters, website and some elements of the trailer for Lesbian Vampire Killers has a whiff of the Grindhouse about it – by which I mean, Tarantino and Rodriguez circa 2007 not 42nd Street circa 1972. There’s also a heavy aroma of Shaun of the Dead, but that’s only been applied out of an aerosol I fear, in order to cover up the stench of Alien Autopsy festering underneath.

By which I mean, when it comes to Brit TV double acts taking their comedy turns to the big screen this looks more Ant and Dec, less Pegg and Frost I’m afraid – and that’s a shame because Gavin and Stacey, the TV show that teamed James Corden and Matthew Horne, is very, very good indeed and I’ve heard nothing but good stuff about their upcoming sketch show, Horne and Corden.

The trailer comes below the break.
