The New Batman Has Been Chosen…

ImageSo it as been done. Warner Brothers has announced that the role of Batman in the upcoming movie, which will contain characters of both Superman and Batman, has been given to Ben Affleck. Is this something to be shoked about? Well, this choice surprised me personally, not because of Affleck’s age (he’s 41, just two years older than Christian Bale), but because in my opinion he is not exactly the person to play Batman. He is charming, great actor and wil bring the movie commercial success, but do you really see him as a Batman? Because I know I don’t. Nevertheless, I would like wish Mr. Affleck great great deal of luck on this one and I hope he proves me wrong.

Classic Wednesday: “The Graduate”

What can be better than spending a cosy Wednesday evening watching a 1967 American classic piece “Graduate” with young Dustin Hoffman and inimitable Anne Bancroft? Not a lot of things. The movie will be especially interesting to those graduated (duh), or to those who study in college right now and are waiting for this time terrified or to those who have once been in college and know what it’s like or to those… Basically this movie will be interesting and informative for everybody, so go ahead and watch it.
P.S. The soundtrack is just amazing)

3 Avatar Sequels?!

Image

Some of us have heard the rumor about one more upcoming Avatar movie, some have heard that there will be two of them. James Cameron proved both of them wrong, announcing that there will be 3(!) more Avatar movies. “In writing the new films, I’ve come to realize that Avatar’s world, story and characters have become even richer than I anticipated, and it became apparent taht two films would not be enough to capture everything I wanted to put on screen”.

Now, let’s get this straight – the first and original Avatar movie was really good (not great, just good). VIsually, the movie is practically unique in its own genre, making it maybe one of the most prominent movies of the past decade. But we have to face the fact that story-wise this movie could do much better than that, I mean how many movies and cartoons were shot on pretty much the same topic? So I guess what Mr. Cameron has to ask him self, is can he actually make the world of Avatar interesting not only visually, but also conceptually, because othewise people will probbaly not willing to see that many movies of this saga.

“Fight Club” to be revived in comic books

On 2013 Comic Con Chuck Palahniuk (the author of the book) himself announced that he starts working on “Fight Club” comic book. The plot is not fully revealed yet, but Chuck told fans that the story will take place 10 years after the events of the movie. It is known that Chuck will be consulted by such titans of comic book industry as Marvel, DC and Dark Horse, however it is not determined whether the comic heroes will look like Edward Norton, Brad Pitt and Helena Bonham Carter or not, and will the character Tyler Durden appear at all. The release of the series is planned for the year 2015.

Freddie Mercury not to be played by Sasha Baron Cohen

ImageUnfortunately, the role of Freddie Mercury was taken away from Sasha Baron Cohen by the other “Queen” members, as they did not come to agreement what the movie should look like. Brian May and Roger Meadows Taylor apparently want the movie about their former frontman to come out with the rating PG-13 (suitable for kids under supervision of parents) and not R-rated, which is going to be kinda hard, as we all know the Fredie was no angel. Well, to my mind whoever is responsible for this desicion should feel guilty and bad, not only they lost the most suitable Freddie’s look-a-like in Hollywood, but also a gret actor who could make the upcoming motion picture much brighter.
