Last week, we discussed the potential of a feature adaptation of Disney’s Gargoyles, a dark and Gothic animated serial from the mid-1990s. There was a good amount of support for the idea and more than a fair share of nostalgia for the property. To encourage more discussion in the comments, feel free to let us know if you think a particular adaptation is a good idea and why, who should star in the major roles and who is fit to sit in the director’s chair. This week, we’ll set sail for the distant waterworld of Mer in search of the lost Thirteen Treasures of Rule. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, hit the jump to find out. Hollywood! Adapt this: The Pirates of Dark Water.
New posters have been released for The Rum Diary and New Year’s Eve. The former is kind of cute and almost makes the film look like a light comic spin on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which is appropriate considering that Hunter S. Thompson was the author of both novels. As for the New Year’s Eve poster, it perfectly encapsulates the cynical, greedy reason for the movie’s existence. The point isn’t to convey a plot, but to jam as many stars into the film as possible in the hopes that you’ll like one or two of them enough to see the movie. However, the stars you like will most likely be in the film for probably less than ten minutes total. If you think watching a star you like play a poorly defined character is worth a dollar a minute, then you like wasting money.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. The Rum Diary opens October 28th. New Year’s Eve opens December 9th.
The romantic comedy Valentine’s Day is a veritable who’s who of Hollywood, with a cast that includes Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Jamie Foxx, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Anne Hathaway, Topher Grace, George Lopez, Shirley Maclaine, Hector Elizondo, Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner and Emma Roberts, just to name a few. And the man responsible for getting all that talent together is director Garry Marshall, who the all-star ensemble was excited to work with.
Following the intertwining storylines of a diverse group of Los Angelenos as they navigate their way through romance and heartbreak over the course of one Valentine’s Day, the film showcases new love, young love, long-time love, the love between best friends and the heartbreak that can result.
During a press conference for the film, co-stars Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Bradley Cooper, Jamie Foxx, Ashton Kutcher and Topher Grace talked about love, romance and living in Los Angeles.
Check out what they had to say after the jump:
Opening on February 12 is Valentine’s Day. Starring every actor in Hollywood (Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempse, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts and Taylor Swift), the film follows the intertwining storylines of a group of Los Angelinos as they find their way through romance over the course of one Valentine’s Day. If you’ve seen the British movie Love, Actually, this is the American version.
To help promote the film, we’ve been given 12 clips. Each one features different actors, so you can see the different storylines. Hit the jump to check them out and you can read the full synopsis:
Did you like the movie Love Actually? Are you a fan of Ashton Kutcher, Kathy Bates, Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx, Jessicas Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Shirley MacLaine, Patrick Dempsey, Topher Grace, Queen Latifah, Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Eric Dane, Hector Elizondo, Jennifer Garner, Emma Roberts or Julia Roberts?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you’re probably going to want to see director Garry Marshall’s (Pretty Woman) new movie Valentine’s Day next February 12th. That’s because the movie is following the playbook of Love Actually and loading itself up with tons of movie stars and telling the story over the course of one day. It just so happens the story takes place on Valentine’s Day.
As someone who really enjoyed Love Actually, I’m very curious about this movie. Also, with a cast like this, how can I not be curious? Check out the new poster and trailer after the jump.
Last night, Moviehole reported Rosewood and Taggart (Judge Reinhold and John Ashton) would be returning to the “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise in the upcoming 4th film. If you don’t remember, John Ashton wasn’t in the third film, and a new character (Hector Elizondo) was written in to take his place. Moviehole also reported screenwriters Derek Haas and Michael Brandt’s spec script “Dying Day” was being used for the story and it was being reworked with the Beverly Hills Cop characters.
Unfortunately, their news was a bit premature, as I just spoke to a very trusted source and they told me it’s not clear who will be back on “Beverly Hills Cop 4″ as the studio is hiring a new writer and they are starting over.
While I would love to see a reunion of the original cast in “Beverly Hills Cop 4″, with the studio hiring a new writer, it’s clear this project is nowhere close to being in front of the camera. More as we get it.
