Watch some on-set video interviews from Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium

     November 7, 2007

Opening up next week is “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium,” the latest film from Fox Walden. While a lot of you might not have much of an interest in seeing the film due to it’s G rating… I think since Natalie Portman is one of the stars, at least some of you are curious.

The big question I have about “Mr. Magorium” is… can this film open? Because unlike a normal 20th Century Fox movie which can make $20 million without even trying, the last Fox Walden movie (“The Dark is Rising”) came and went as fast as any movie this year. In fact, I don’t know anyone that actually saw it. The promotion for the film was next to non-existent, and that could’ve been one of the reasons why the film disappeared so quickly.

But perhaps things are changing at Fox Walden, since I was sent clips and on set video interviews to run. (last time I got nothing)

So far I don’t know anyone that’s seen “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium,” so I can’t tell you if it’s good or bad. But I like the cast, and I’d love it to be good.

Anyway, if you’re curious about the movie and want to know more, I was given some on set video interviews with Natalie Portman, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Bateman and writer/director Zach Helm and they’re all below.

Since I don’t know much about the movie… here’s the synopsis from wikipedia:

When a young pianist named Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman) inherits a magical toyshop from her eccentric 243-year-old boss, Mr. Magorium (Dustin Hoffman), she struggles with self-doubt. But through the friendship of a charismatic little boy (Zach Mills) and a buttoned-up accountant (Jason Bateman), she learns to believe in herself, and finds that she does possess enough magic to run Mr. Magorium’s shop by finding herself in places she’s never imagined.
