Synopsis:
Jerry Ferro's 40th birthday has brought his life into sharp relief and it's not a pretty picture. A once-promising amateur boxer -- who quit so he wouldn't risk his perfect record of underachievement -- Jerry has been knocking around from one construction job to another and spinning his wheels in an unsatisfying relationship, all the while with an eye toward eventually getting his shit together. His last connection to the fight game is the evening boxing class he teaches to middle-aged, middle class, middle management types at a gym in Pasadena, where he also works as a handyman. When venerable boxing coach Eddie Bell asks Jerry if he'd like to spar a couple of rounds with Malice Blake, an up-and-coming pro, Jerry reluctantly steps into the ring. Despite the ass-kicking Jerry otherwise receives, a one-punch knockdown of Blake convinces Jerry that it¹s time to make his return to competitive boxing. Thus ends a 20-year layoff and begins a hilarious fish-out-water quest for Olympic gold.

Yessss. Neil Marshall knows blood and gore. His recent film Doomsday had plenty of both, and 2/3 of GATW loved it (read Rusty's review HERE).
tn_writer-and-director-neil-marshall-on-the-set-of-doomsday-a-rogue-pictures-release.jpg

Looks like he's now turning into some new territory. Neil Just signed with Universal Studios to direct Drive, an adaptation of the James Sallis novel of the same name.

Hugh Jackman is attached to play a Hollywood stunt driver who's night life consist of being the getaway driver in heists. With this already adrenaline pumped existence, according to the book, things change when he discovers a hit has been put out on his life. Whether or not Jackman will star in this is up to scheduling and much praying.

Hossein Amini wrote the script (the guy that wrote much anticipated but nobody seems to know when the hell it will be released Killshot), and Marshall told Variety

"This is something I haven't done before, and I've wanted to bring a British sensibility to an L.A. shoot and a scorched classic film noir concept. Hoss is a fantastic writer, and he's written three amazing car chases in the film. He's turned them into dramatic scenes as opposed to the usual crash, bang, wallop. I would like to be shooting it this summer."

Marshall has also signed with Universal to write and direct an old western horror film titled Sacrilege. Again, the staff at GATW loves Marshall and his gore.

Below is the beautfully colored poster for Kar Wai Wong's new film, My Blueberry Nights. It stars Rachel Weisz, Norah Jones, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, David Strathairn, and Tim Roth in a story a young musician (Norah Jones) who travels looking for the answers to her questions about love while meeting interesting people along her journey.

cera-as-scottpilgrim.jpg

First Showing reports that Michael Cera is in final stages of negotiations to star in Scott Pilgrim, a comic book adaptation. It's "about a younger Canadian slacker and wanna-be rockstar (who plays bass in a band called the "Sex Bob-Omb") who meets the woman of his dreams but finds that he can only win her heart by battling and defeating her seven evil ex-boyfriends." This will be directed by comedic guru Edgar Wright, the guy behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (and the Don't trailer in Grindhouse). With Michael Cera in front of the lens, and Edgar behind, this should be nothing short of brilliant.

PS Do you think Nick Frost or Simon Pegg will make a cameo? I sure do.

Another sad day in the film community. Yesterday British cinema alumn, Anthony Minghella, died of a fatal hemorrage after undergoing surgery on his neck. He was 54.

That's a bit brutal to post, but that's all I've read across sites everywhere. Anthony won two academy awards: for best director and best screenplay for The English Patient, and was nominated for his screenplay for The Talented Mr. Ripley. Anthony also served two three-year terms as chairman of the British Film Institute. He was very focused on getting more films made in Britain. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

What can I say about Funny Games? I'm not even sure where to start because I have mixed feelings about the movie. Did I laugh? Yes, a lot. Did I get annoyed a few times at the slow, lingering scenes? Yes, very. Did I wear my Cowboys jersey and walk out of the film halfway through? No, I left that up to the group of dude bros who sat behind me.

When it comes down to it, I have caught myself the last few days recommending the movie to friends as we sat thinking of what to go see at the theater. So, I guess that means something.

In the movie, a family drives to their summer house on the lake. When they arrive, two very well mannered gentlemen show up and request to borrow some eggs. Their behavior is extremely awkward and the family asks them to leave... several times. Unfortunately for the family, they don't leave and instead decide to make a bet. Their bet is simple: will the family live through the night or not?

For those who didn't know, this is a remake of an older film, which I haven't seen. However, our very own Mr. Rusty Gordon assures me the remake is almost identical to the original, with the exception of a few additional scenes.

The movie stars Naomi Watts as the mother (Ann), Tim Roth as the father (George) and some awkward little boy (possibly a girl with a short hair cut) as their little boy. The two villains are played by Michael Pitt (Paul) and Brady Corbet (Peter). Both Watts and Roth do a great job of portraying a couple who are being tortured physically and mentally and some of the long camera shots are perfect for showing their ability to stay in character for a long time.

Both Pitt and Corbet did an excellent job of being extremely weird, awkward, morally off and really funny. I love their ability to torture a family while making a sandwich and teasing each other about loosing weight.

The movie isn't necessarily slow, but some of the extended scenes give it a lengthy pace. If you are looking for blood and guts, this isn't the movie for you. But don't get me wrong, there are some graphic scenes and shots, but most everything is shown after the fact and there isn't any "in your face" type violence.

Go see this movie. Don't leave in the middle of it and don't expect the everyday slasher movie. Just laugh. It's funny, I promise.

bale-batman.jpg

Christian Bale/Christopher Nolan/ and Batman make an incredible combination. With The Dark Knight being one of the most anticipated films of this summer (and probably all time), Entertainment Weekly gave us a small chat with the man himself and discusses a possibly/maybe/better be third installment Batman franchise:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What brought you back to the part of Batman? Was there something that you didn't get to do in the first one that you were looking forward to doing this time around?

CHRISTIAN BALE: Well, what we didn't get to do was show this man who has now matured, who no longer has the naïveté that he had at a younger age — now it's somebody who has caused change, who has achieved what he had set out to do, but is now seeing consequences that he hadn't anticipated. So it's now somebody with the burden of his power — the difference between the man trying to attain that and the man who finds himself with it, and how very different it is.

Do you feel like the character has changed? Isn't that something that, as an actor, amidst all the effects and everything, you look for?

Yeah, of course, of course. It's one of the major [reasons] I like working with Chris [Nolan].... We manage to have all of the interest that I need as an actor, as well as what you said — what did you say, explosions and stuff?

Yeah.
Yeah, in the midst of that. Chris completely understands that explosions and effects don't make a movie. That ain't a story right there, those are spectacles within the story, but that doesn't make a good movie.

So do you think there will be a part 3 of Batman?
Um, look, let's wait and see...

Or, I guess it'd be part 7.
No, no, no, no, no. [Smiling] Part 3 is what I'd consider it, yeah, I don't say part 7. Batman begins — that was the beginning there, with all due respect to the others. We are re-creating this. You know, obviously the decision is out of my hands. I would, knowing the Dark Knight story, I would like very much to complete a trilogy. And I think that knowing the story of The Dark Knight, it leaves you anticipating something that really can get very, very interesting for a third. Now, the question would be: Is Chris going to be doing it? Because to me I find it tricky to imagine working on it without it being a collaboration with Chris.

Back to The Dark Knight: Can you talk a little bit about what it was like to work with Heath Ledger?
Yeah, I'm absolutely fine talking about him. You know, I don't like kind of trivializing the tragedy in conjunction with an interview to do with the movie, which is clearly far less important. But Heath was a joy. He really was like that, because he was a very unique man. I enjoyed watching him work, working with him — you know, we had a lot of the old gang from the first one together, and then there were new members, Heath obviously included. What was so great to see with Heath is just how seriously he took it. And we don't mean in any way to sound sort of pretentious with that, but just in the fact that if we don't take it seriously, then how can any audience ever take it seriously? And he did one hell of a job. You know, you were out there [at the Warner Bros. presentation earlier in the day] — you saw those clips?

That was my first time, yeah.
That was the first time I'd seen it as well — and it's wonderful, it's fantastic, and, you know, it gave me goose bumps throughout, looking at Heath up there. And I just hope that this can celebrate him, celebrate his work.

Troy Duffy is a bit of a douche bag, but damn is he talented. Yesterday, on Saint Patrick's Day, he announced (on YouTube) that YES, The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day will be happening. Sony Pictures Studios picked up the rights and shooting will begin this summer and it will get a theatrical release. The cast from the original will be returning except for Willem Dafoe. :(

After watching the documentary Overnight about the rise and fall of Troy Duffy, I never thought he would work in Hollywood again. There has been much buzz for years and years whether part two would be made or not. Now that it's been greenlit, let's hope that he does not eff things up again.

jamalnotorious.jpg

Fox Searchlight sent /film a first look photo of Jamal Woolard in the big screen adaptation of Biggies Smalls life, entitled Notorious. According to the New York Times, Jamal had this from the get go:

“Not part of the open call in New York in October, Mr. Woolard had been under consideration since November, and was quietly being groomed by the film’s director, George Tillman Jr., before being officially selected. “We set up a boot camp for three months just for him,” Mr. Tillman said from New York, where he is preparing to begin production with Robert Teitel, his partner in State Street Pictures."

I'm 25 now and was in Jr. High when Mr. Wallace's career peaked and ended abruptly when he was gunned down. There was (and still is) a lot of controversy surrounding the deaths of Biggie and 2Pac (being related), so I'm very interested in how director George Tillman Jr. will take this. We'll soon see.

Judd Apatow deserves much ass kissing. Because his films like SUPERBAD and KNOCKED UP, Regal Entertainment Group (the largest theater chain in the country) announced this weekend that they will be bringing back restricted trailers.

"This is going to be hugely helpful for us when we want to give targeted moviegoers a true sense of the kind of movies we are offering," said Adam Fogelson, Universal president of marketing and distribution. "I couldn't be happier or more grateful to the people at Regal for continuing the dialogue that has led to this decision."

About a decade ago, you would see restricted attached to R rated films, but a 2000 Federal Trade Commission report criticized the entertainment industry for marketing violence to children. Soon after movie theaters pulled the plug in fear that a red band could accidentally show up on a G or PG movie, but Regal has been testing in art house (Magnolia, Angelika) and using the digital revolution to maintain control over which trailers play.

PS AMERICAN PIE (1999) was the major studio film that showed a restricted trailer.

-Edgar Frog

Seriously? That's what they came up with? That's just awful. And when will a director know that no skateboarder will do tricks on a skateboard when running from the cops, vampire or not. My expectations we're not too high when I found out this was going to be a straight-to-DVD release, but I'm not going to lie, I did have hope. The only thing good about this is the song used in the trailers was also real popular in the original movie. This little guy will be available to pirate online and buy on DVD in July.

The influences of Neil Marshall's new film, the violent and flamboyant Doomsday, are very clear. The most evident influences in the film's story and tone are Escape from New York and the Mad Max films, especially the second and third installments. However, the entire catalogue of eighties and late seventies sci-fi action movies, not just the above mentioned examples, have a clear effect on the creation of Doomsday. These now seemingly campy and often over looked films are not forgotten in the mind of Neil Marshall, as the director's third feature is a labor of love, proving to be a sincere ode to the violent B- movies that Mr. Marshall obviously treasures.

A fairly standard prologue reveals that New York, I mean Scotland, has been sealed off from England and the rest of the world. A Thirty-foot wall surrounding the country’s borders and the constant patrol of Scotland's waters and sky by England ensure that "nothing gets out or in" according to the film’s narrator. The reason for the isolation is that a deadly virus, known as the reaper virus, over ran Scotland and England's answer was containment.

In 2035, the virus has reappeared, this time in England. However there is hope, satellite images have shown people still alive in Scotland. The corrupt government official Canaris (David O’Hara) decides to put a team together to send into Scotland and find a possible cure; Canaris is the typical amoral character whose last ditch attempt to cover up the government’s mistakes will no doubt make him a foil to the protagonist by the end of the movie. The leader of this dangerous mission into the forgotten land is Eden (Rhona Mitra). Despite Rhona Mitra’s strong resemblance to Kate Beckinsale in Underworld, Eden’s black outfit, deadly skills, and attitude make her come off as a direct descendant of Snake Plissken. For the most part, the time before we are behind the walls is fine, there are some fairly interesting scenes, especially the introduction of Eden. Also, the audience is treated to a very eighties digital score during most of the film’s first half; this soundtrack is clearly one of Doomsday’s many nods to sci-fi and horror legend, John Carpenter.

The team quickly meets several of the survivors in the form of a gang of sadomasticist punk rockers, led by the scene stealing Sol (Craig Conway). There are no clear effects of the virus on these survivors, unless of course multi-colored hair and body tattoos are desires brought on by the reaper virus. As you can see at this point in the film we are getting to the section largely inspired by the Mad Max films. This gang is vicious and flesh hungry, obviously their life in this closed area has caused them to give into their primal and darker instincts. Eden and a few members of her crew are captured by this wonderfully insane gang, and treated to quite a show by the ferocious but also surprisingly charismatic Sol. Sol struts on the stage with the presence of a skilled politician and gives a very rousing performance. The time spent with the futuristic punk rockers is as exhilarating as it is violent, which is to say very.

These tattooed and pierced people are not the only survivors Eden and her team meet, as they are captured by Dr. Marcus Kane (Malcolm McDowell), who is believed by the English government to be the man behind the cure. Kane lives in a restored castle as he and his people have adapted the medieval way of life. At Kane’s castle Mr. Marshall again delivers another elaborate spectacle as Eden is forced to battle one of Kane’s warriors, who wears full knight armor. The battle and subsequent escape is a bloody good time, containing sweeping camera shots and an epic score, as Marshall refuses to not hold anything back in the name of entertainment.

Of course, Eden survives every encounter with the current dwellers of Scotland, and the film resolves in a fairly predictable manner. However, the various exhilarating sequences created by Marshall and the director’s apparent style and precision keep Doomsday from ever losing its flavor. The score and soundtrack always transitions well to perfectly create whatever tone Mr. Marshall is going for at the current moment. We have the John Carpenter redux in the beginning, sweeping and grand music when the search team is in the castle, and great pop songs sprinkled throughout the film.

Doomsday marks director and screenwriter Neil Marshall’s first film that does not center on a monster attack. Marshall used werewolves in Dog Soldiers and created the crawlers that terrorized the cave explorers in The Descent. Doomsday is also Neil Marshall’s grandest film, using large and elaborate set pieces and a story that involves the quarantine of an entire country and the different communities that have surfaced in this forsaken land. Despite his high ambitions and his journey into fairly new territory in the sci-fi realm, Mr. Marshall still comes out a perfect three for three, creating a greatly entertaining film that works as appropriate tribute to many of his cinematic inspirations.

Doomsday
doomp1.jpg
In the action-packed new thriller Doomsday, from writer/director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Dog Soldiers), authorities brutally quarantine a country as it succumbs to fear and chaos when a virus strikes. The literal walling-off works for three decades—until the dreaded Reaper virus violently resurfaces in a major city.

An elite group of specialists, captained by Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra), is urgently dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare.

Horton Hears A Who
horton_hears_a_who.jpg
An imaginative elephant named Horton (Carrey) hears a faint cry for help coming from a tiny speck of dust floating through the air. Although Horton doesn't know it yet, that speck houses an entire city named Who-ville, inhabited by the microscopic Whos, led by the Mayor (Carell). Despite being ridiculed and threatened by his neighbors who think he has lost his mind, Horton is determined to save the particle...because "a person's a person no matter how small."

Never Back Down
nbdp1.jpg
Set against the action-packed world of Mixed Martial Arts, Never Back Down is the story of Jake Tyler, a tough kid who leads with his fists, and, often, with his heart. Jake Tyler, played by Sean Faris, is the new kid in town with a troubled past. He has recently moved to Orlando, Florida with his family who has relocated to support his younger brother’s shot at a professional tennis career. Jake was a star athlete on the football team at home, but in this new city he is an outsider with a reputation for being a quick tempered brawler. Making an attempt to fit in, at the invitation of a flirtatious classmate, Baja (Amber Heard), Jake goes to a party where he is unwittingly pulled into a fight with a bully named Ryan McCarthy (Cam Gigandet). While he is defeated and humiliated in the fight, a classmate introduces himself to Jake and tells him about the sport known as Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). He sees a star in Jake and asks that he meet with his mentor, Jean Roqua, played by Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, In America). It is immediately apparent to Jake that MMA is not street fighting, but rather an art form he wants to master. Roqua will take Jake under his wing, but it is up to Jake to find the patience, discipline, willingness and reason within him to succeed. For Jake, there is much more at stake than mere victory. His decision will not just settle a score; it will define who he is.

There were a total of 2,327 submission.

The festival kicks off April 23 and ends on May 4 and will be located at two hubs in Manhattan. This years ticket prices will also be lowered to $15 for evening and weekend screenings and $8 for daytime weekday and late night screenings.

Universal studio's Baby Mama is slated to open the festival, but no word yet on which other big studio's films will being shown.

After seeing the most hyped up monster movie in the world, Cloverfield, and discussing it with people, I came to realize I was the only one who felt that motion sickness bug during the film and thus rubbing me off as a pansy. I've read many reviews discussing that same effect that I felt, but to this day I still haven't met anyone who went through the same agony as I did. I guess I'm still that pansy.

Today CanMag has revealed what may or may not be the cover art for the upcoming Cloverfield DVD. Yeah, it comes across as a bit creepy, but I hope Paramount focuses more on the monster's destruction than a bent up door he probably bumped into.

Today, IESB reported from ShoWest that Brian Singer confirmed he will be coming back to direct the sequel to Superman Returns called... you got it, Man of Steel.

You have no idea how happy this makes me. A lot of people bitched about how disappointing Superman Returns was, yet it made of $391 Mil in total sales (including DVD). I agree that the ending did drag a little bit, but when Brian has a vision, you stay out of his way and let him do the damn thing. There is nobody in Hollywood that would handle Superman films with caution they way Brian has and will.

On a sad note, writers Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris will not be returning to write the sequel, so Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Transformers and the new Star Trek) will be stepping in to fill their shoes. No word yet if Brandon Routh will be turning for the sequel, but I sure hope he does. He did an excellent job on filling Christopher Reeve's shoes, and I'd like to see him continue as the "Man of Steel."

Stay tuned for further information folks!
