Edge of Darkness Trailer

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Mel Gibson in a major film role, I believe the last was Signs in 2002. ‘Edge of Darkeness,’ from Casino Royale director Martin Campbell looks like a return to form for the controversial actor/director. An all out action thriller. Say what you will about the guy, I love his movies.

Fellow Filmmakers Call For Polanski Release

A group of filmmakers are calling for the release of Roman Polanski.  Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese and David Lynch are among the directors who signed a petition asking for the release of director Roman Polanski.  Polanski was arrested this past weekend in Switzerland in connection with the 1977 rape charge that led to his fleeing the US.  Those signing the petition were also incensed that Polanski was arrested on his way to attend the Zurich Film Festival.

In other Polanski news, his most recent movie, “The Ghost,” starring Pierce Brosnan and Ewan McGregor  has been put on hold.  The movie, based on the Robert Harris novel about an investigative reporter looking into the past of the British PM, was in post production with just the sound mix and scoring remaining to be done.  However, nothing will happen with the movie until Polanski’s legal situation is cleared up.

So, for the time being, the only thing we’ll see from this movie is a short, 15 second trailer.  Check it out below.

Coppola’s “Tetro” Trailer Released

Francis Ford Coppola has released the trailer for his latest movie.  “Tetro,” looks interesting.  I can’t say I really know what the movie is about, but I’m intrigued.  This is the first movie that Coppola has written since “The Conversation.”  So, no pressure there.

“Teatro,” will open Director’s Fortnight at Cannes and then open in limited release in the US June 11th.  Check it out here.

The trailer for ‘Quantum of Solace,’ the latest James Bond movie has been released.

For me, I’m offically excited.  The teaser didn’t really do it for me, but this trailer has me looking forward to November 14th.  (‘Quantum’ was one of many movies who shifted opening dates after the latest Harry Potter movie pushed to Summer 2009.)

Alan Moore on ‘Watchmen’

Alan Moore on ‘Watchmen’

Alan MooreSo if you’re a comic book fan, it’s no surprise that Alan Moore is considered by many to the one of the “greats” of genre. And if you know that, you also know that he’s not a big fan of any of the adaptations of his comic work to the big screen. ‘From Hell’, ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’, ‘V for Vendetta’ all fell short in his eyes and he has been vocal about his displeasure with each of them. Now, with Zack Snyder adapting his arguably most famous piece, ‘Watchmen’, the world is equally excited/tense about how well Snyder will do adapting the piece. They’re also a little curious about what Moore’ll think about it all. Will this be the film that changes his opinion?
