Second Teaser Trailer for ‘Inception’

Second Teaser Trailer for ‘Inception’

Christopher Nolan is one of the few new directors whose work almost always gets me excited. ‘Inception,’ Nolan’s first film since ‘Dark Knight’ has had me excited since I first heard about it. Nolan is a tremendous talent, and something tells me there is a lot more coming from this director.

Check out the second teaser for ‘Inception,’ which gives you a little more detail into the new film starring Leonardo DiCaprio & Ellen Paige.

“Inception” Trailer Released

If you go see “Sherlock Holmes,” this weekend, you’ll see this trailer, but consider this an early gift.  Here’s the trailer for Christopher Nolan’s latest movie.  “Inception,” which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and comes out this summer.  Oh, because it hasn’t been released officially yet, it’s in French.  But you get the gist of it.

DiCaprio Says “Deep Blue Good-Bye”

Leonardo DiCaprio has reportedly agreed to star in 20 Century Fox’s new movie “The Deep Blue Good-Bye.”  The movie would be based on the John D. McDonald book.  It’s one of 21 books featuring main character Travis McGee.  (Is Fox thinking a film series with Leo?)  According to the back of the book, McGee is a beach bum, offering his services as a “salvage consultant.”  MacDonald also wrote the book “Cape Fear.”

I’m a sucker for paperback noir, which was MacDonald’s forte.  So, I’m excited to see what becomes of this, especially with DiCaprio in the lead role.  Plus, it’d be cool to see DiCaprio to do a project that isn’t so serious.  Hopefully he won’t get cold feet before they start.

‘Shutter Island’ Release Date Moves to February 2010

In a move that’ll destroy ‘Shutter Islands’ chances this Oscar season, Paramount has delayed the release to Febuary 2010. Everyone and their mother just let out a collective ‘wtf.’

The online word is that Paramount can’t afford the money to market the film leading up to its release, and that DiCaprio wouldn’t be available to promote the film.

I’m sorry, you can’t come up with the money to sell a film directed by Oscar winning director Martin Scorsese, based on a book written by the guy behind Mystic River?? This is mind boggling. Especially since the film didn’t even have a tiny bit of competition the weekend it was being released.

Whatever Paramount, so now I have to wait even longer to see a movie I’ve been waiting over a year for, its not like my rant will change it.

Hardwicke to Direct ‘Red Riding Hood’

Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, and Twilight) has signed on to direct a new retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.

The film, being produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company, was written by David Johnson. The film is called ‘The Girl with the Red Riding Hood,’ and features a teenage love triangle at its center.

Hardwicke has proven to be quite a successful filmmaker, I’m sure this film will sit very well with the ‘Twilight’ crowd. Me? Well, probably not.

Body of Lies

Now I say this with the utmost respect. I sometimes feel like there are two different types of Ridley Scott films. There are the Ridley Scott films that I feel like he feels very passionate about (Gladiator), then there are ones that he might feel passionate about, but the evidence isn’t clear in the final product (Kingdom of Heaven). This is how I feel about ‘Body of Lies.’

New Writer to Tackle Ian Fleming Biopic

New Writer to Tackle Ian Fleming Biopic


The Hollywood Reporter says John Orloff, (best known for “A Mighty Heart,”) has been brought on to re-write the Ian Fleming biography movie brought to Warner Bros. by Leonardo DiCaprio.

The story will reportedly be much different from the James Bond films, (and, presumeably much different than “Spymaker,” a TV movie starring Sean Connery’s son Jason as Fleming).

The script that Orloff is adaptating features Fleming on the eve of his 1953 wedding, where he is about to present his wife with a copy of “Casino Royale,” the first Bond book.  The story then flashes back to show how we got there.

Given that I’m a fan of anything to do with Bond, I’m interested to see how this project turns out.  -Sam

Inglorious Bastards just got a little more glorious?

Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards has been wrung through the rumor machine over and over again.  We all know the insanity of getting Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Willis to team up, NOT promoting Planet Hollywood, but blowing up Nazi tanks with bazookas.  These three have been linked to this project since the dawn of time, but alas, no official announcement as of yet from anyone’s camp.

1st Pic from ‘Ashecliffe’

1st Pic from ‘Ashecliffe’

Okay…I know this isn’t exactly earth-shattering, but it looks like the first pic of the newest Leo/Scorsese opus has been released.  This pic shows our good ole’ DeNiro substitute Leonardo DiCaprio holding a shotgun behind a fence, looking for God knows who.  The film is still being called Asheclliffe, which I really hope reverts back to shutter Island.  I mean, why would it stay Ashecliffe?  The book is freakin’
titled Shutter Island, and it is so much more of a spine tingling title than Ashecliffe.  I honestly don’t understand why Hollywood always insists on screwing around with stuff when it is perfectly fineunscrewed.  Let’s hope this is just the Blue Harvest of Scorsese films.  Anyway…kinda cool pic for a hopefully very cool movie.
