As one of the most anticipated movies of the year, if not century, inches closer to release, Warner Bros kindly released a 13 minute behind the scenes clip giving us a better idea of what to expect. This video really goes into the depth of plot, production, and everything else in between. I like it because it gives the audience a better understanding of what to expect without revealing anything. For one, there is no doubt this movie will be a spectacle to watch. The utter realism behind the shots just makes me speechless to even think about. Will this film make cinema history? It was recently stated the movie will release in over 15,000 theaters worldwide! And yes, it is basically sold out in most of them. Until then, we have this awesome featurette.
Are you planning on watching this movie? Do you already have tickets?
One of the most successful game franchises in history is finally making its way towards the big screen. Dreamworks has just nabbed the rights to create the film for EA’s Need for Speed. The film is on its way with John Gatins (Real Steal) writing the screenplay and Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) directing.
It will be interesting to see what Dreamworks makes out of this. Will it be more realistic and compete with Fast and Furious (Universal) or be driven a whole different direction (pun intended)? Only time will tell how closely it will relate to Need for Speed and what that even means to Dreamworks. The movie is slated for a 2014 release, and while I’m excited for this, two years is a long ways off for much to change. Do you look forward to seeing this game turn into a film?
George Orwell’s timeless classic 1984 is now making its rounds towards the big screen. It has just been reported that that Noah Oppenheimer and Darren Aronofsky are the two names currently linked to this reboot. It’s good to note that this film will be a remake of the classic version coincidentally from 1984. This definitely will be a movie to be on the lookout for as the currently film tech would make this one successful movie. Will keep you guys posted as more updates are put out.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell has just gone up for grabs (more like bids) as the production powerhouses Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures are trying the acquire the story to create the next big franchise. Splinter Cel is a game in which you control Sam Fisher, a covert Black Ops agent part of the fictional NSA Sub-Division “Third Echelon”, who gets hurled around the world on deadly missions that require the utmost in skill. There is no doubt that this film/franchise would have much potential as there already is a large fan base surrounding it and a well accepted plot. Good news for fans of the game is that Ubisoft, the company responsible for creating the game, said it plans to “be very involved and retain control over how the game is translated into a film.” The film is tentatively slated for 2013 release, though my suspicion is that it’ll be much later as they have yet to seek out a director, screenwriter and the entire cast as well as film the movie.
There is no doubt that Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is the most anticipated film of the year. The excitement is building as tickets went up for sale earlier this week. Of course some people like me also look forward to the magic Hans Zimmer brings into the film. His orchestrated works have definitely changed the way of cinematic music. Here is a sneak peek at the epic-ness yet to behold us. The Dark Knight Rises is set to release July 20th, 2012.
Here is the first trailer for the video-game inspired film Wreck-It Ralph. I must say it looks incredibly impressive as I think Pixar may have another winner on their hands. The story is basically about how a video game bad guy is tired of being always being hated so he goes “game jumping” in order to become a hero. One of the coolest things, for all of us gaming fanatics, it stars some iconic game characters like Bowser, Q-bert, and Eggman. Do you plan to watch this film?
As fans await for the arrival of The Hobbit this coming December, Peter Jackson has been constantly updating his blog with video featurettes of the production of the film itself. I must say that this update is the coolest one yet as it features the tour of the Stone Studio, the location where the film is being shot. Also, watch till the end for a pleasant surprise.
Here is the first trailer for the upcoming film Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner. I must admit the plot, while somewhat complex, seems fairly impressive. The premise is basically that Renner is another operative in Treadstone whose life has gone haywire because of what Bourne did in the first three films. It’ll be interesting to see how the blend things together. The film is due August 3rd, 2012.
