30 Seconds Of ‘10,000 B.C.’ Trailer

July 10, 2007

10000bc.gifThere is now an exclusive look at the first 30 seconds for the 10,000 B.C. trailer.  I didn’t know much about it, but I found out it’s the new prehistoric epic from director Roland Emmeriech.  The film follows a a young hunter on his quest to save the woman he loves but in the process manages to uncover a lost civilization.

As you might expect, you don’t get to see a whole lot in these first 30 second, but there is just enough there to get you interested.  Luckily you won’t have to wait long to see more, at least thats what I gathered from the text at the end of the clip, “WATCH THE FULL TRAILER ON YAHOO! TOMORROW.”

I can’t wait.

New ‘Spiderwick’ Teaser Online

July 10, 2007

spiderwick.gifIt seems thats fantasy book big screen adaptations are becoming increasingly popular, and profitable, and so Hollywood keeps churning them out.  The latest, The Spiderwick Chronicles, is based upon a youth series of the same name about a group of siblings and the adventures that they get into upon discovering a book.  I have never read these books, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying any of the other countless adaptations, so I doubt it will matter much here.  This is how IMDB describes it: Upon moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures.

Now, we can get our first look at the film via this teaser trailer.  So far the movie looks good and I’m a fan of the actor choices, at least the ones with which I’m familiar.  I don’t know if I’m tired of what but in one see the special effects looked to be lacking a bit.  Regardless, overall there’s enough here to like and it gives us something to look forward to on February 15 2008.

J.J. Abrams Talks ‘Cloverfield’

July 10, 2007

jjabrams.gifWith all that’s been going on concerning Cloverfield, or 1-18-08 or whatever the heck it’s called, as of late I think it’s about time we heard something from the puppet master himself, .  It seems that he took some time to drop Ain’t It Cool News a line about all these web sites.

Regarding the online stuff you posted: yeah, we’re doing some fun stuff on the web. But, obviously, if the movie doesn’t kick some massive ASS, who gives a rat’s about what’s online? So as you can imagine, we’re focusing mostly on THAT. For what it’s worth, the only site of ours that people have even FOUND is the site. The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us.

This brings up two points.  The first is that it seems like he’s saying that there are more sites to be found we just haven’t found them yet.  Secondly, if the Haas sites have nothing to do with the film, why did Paramount want the video footage from the site(s) taken off of YouTube?  Anyway, there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth.  Keep searching guys, and let me know what you find.

Oh and the teaser trailer has officially been released in case you haven’t heard and you can watch it here.

Finally, ‘Cloverfield’ Teaser Trailer Officially Online

July 9, 2007

1-18-08.gifNo more scouring the internet look for video camera recording of the infamous Cloverfield trailer, you can now check it out here.  One interesting side note,  is that it’s labeled as 1-18-08.  I’m not saying this is true, but it could be the title title, as was speculated.  Just something to think about.  Also, I wish someone would spy and send me some movie news.

Cinematical was contacted by a spy who is supposedly affiliated with the production and, based on what they posted, the spy doesn’t have anymore of a clue than we do.  The rundown of what they say is that the production is filming in LA under the guise “Slusho”  with the tag line “Slusho: You can’t eat more than just 6” on the trucks.  He also, more or less, squashes rumors about the monster in question being Godzilla.  In the trailer, when you see the tower exploding, that is apparently a giant foot stomping down.  Wow.  And finally about the Ethan Haas sites, he claims that it “kinds makes sense.”   I don’t know what to make of this information, and really you should take it with a grain of salt, too, cause it could very well be a hoax.   Let me know if you find anything else and I’ll do tha same.

Boatload Of Baddies For ‘Dark Knight’

July 9, 2007

anthonymichaelhall.gifMore news from the Batman front.  I reported a while back that there were rumors floating around that Anthony Michael Hall was supposedly playing Edward Nygma, whose alter ego is the Riddler, in The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins.  These rumors are now making the rounds again, and I feel pretty confident that they are true.  This might work out fine if they are introducing Nygma pre-Riddler and don’t try to rush to him becoming his bad guy persona.

Not only that, film ick has reported that , who is playing Harvey Dent aka Two-face, has been seen on set, by a spy, in Two-face makeup.  The spy says,”Scarring acoss the nose just a tad bit. One of his eyes is deformed. And little bubbles across the scarring (They’re manips that look similar). Wicked cool.”

I’ll admit, these actors playing these characters is pretty exciting, however, I can’t help but be a little bit nervous.  I keep thinking about Spiderman 3 all the problems that movie had with too many bad guys.  I think Christopher Nolan is a very talented director and more that capable of handling the overload (if one exists), but I’m just not sure how this will play out.  The guys at film ick commented that maybe Two-face’s part would end up being an epilogue and kind of set up the scenario for a 3rd sequel.  That would definitely lighten the load, but there’s still a lot going on.

‘Indy 4’ Ends New Haven Shoot

July 9, 2007

indy4-newhaven.gifIndiana Jones 4 seems to be moving steadily along with it’s shooting and just finished in New Haven this past week. For the movie, the town was given a face-lift in a lot of places to give the appearance of 1957 New Haven/Yale. Coming Soon has got a bunch of photos that someone took while the production was in town. The shots are mostly of some of the vintage automobiles used in the movie, but you can check them out here if you’re interested.

Besides New Haven, the production also did some shooting in Essex, CT at the Essex Steam Train. This shoot was only a one day thing, but there are some nice pictures of the train station’s new look here. One fan got to watch the shooting for that day and wrote about his experience. Apparently, the train station scene will end up playing a larger part than we might think:
