Can you believe how long it’s been since Monsters, Inc. was first released? I feel so old! Disney/Pixar brings us an all new movie, Monsters University, a prequel to the original. Billy Crystal and John Goodman reprise their roles as Mike and Sulley in the new film that focuses on their rivalry during their college years at the University of Fear training to scare children. Sounds like a fun school to me.
Adele has been confirmed to be singing the theme song to the upcoming Bond film Skyfall. Previous singers for the iconic theme songs have included Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, and Louis Armstrong. Skyfall is set for release October 26th.
I love James Bond. He’s like what I imagine the love child of Chuck Norris and Macgyver would be. He could probably kick ass with a high pressure hydraulic hose and a toothbrush. Or ya know, just his golden gun.
Jurassic Park fans: Hold on to your butts. The biggest development update on the fourth installment in the hit franchise has been revealed. Steven Spielberg‘s producer, Frank Marshall, revealed that the movie should be on screens within two years, with the hopes that it will be a Summer blockbuster.
It has been long speculated whether the fourth movie would be an actual sequel or a reboot but Marshall confirmed that it will definitely be a sequel. In other fantastic news, there’s still hope that the movie won’t abandon its use of using Dinosaur puppets/robots instead of CGI.
I can’t tell you how happy this makes me or how long I’ve been waiting to hear this. The only update that could make this better is if Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum and others from the old gang would confirm their appearance in the movie. Even seeing a grown up Timmy would be amazing.
Keep reading for what else Frank had to say:
During Steve’s interview with Marshall, he asked the producer for a status update on Jurassic Park 4, to which Marshall replied:
“I would say that it will be on the screen within two years.”
Marshall went on to reveal that they’re aiming for a summer release since it’s a “popcorn movie,” and confirmed that it’s definitely a sequel and not a reboot or remake. Spielberg confirmed earlier this year that he won’t be directing Jurassic Park 4, but he’s clearly heavily involved in the development of the film.
That’s not to say that the filmmakers will be completely abandoning the practical effects and prosthetic work that was put to great use in the earlier films. Marshall added that using practical dinosaurs not only feels real to the audience, but aids the actors in their performances.
If they are indeed looking at getting the film in front of screens within two years (which jibes with the timetable Spielberg laid out at last year’s Comic-Con), hopefully we’ll hear word about a director choice soon. There are a number of young, exciting filmmakers working today that could offer a fresh take on the franchise, and I’m eager to see who will take the reins.
Glee Live! 3D is set to be released this summer, August 12th! Twentieth Century Fox announced today plans to release a movie based on the summer concert performances for a two week engagement. If you were unable to snag tickets to any of the Glee concerts, this sounds like it’s just for you!
Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Film have partnered with GLEE creator Ryan Murphy to produce GLEE LIVE! 3D!, a film of the blockbuster “Glee Live! In Concert!” North American tour. Twentieth Century Fox will release the film – for a special limited two-week engagement — in theaters everywhere on August 12, 2011.
GLEE LIVE! 3D! will enable fans – or, “Gleeks” — who were unable to obtain tickets to the sold-out shows, or who live in markets not included in the tour, or who just want to see it again, to experience the concert in the immersive magic of a 3D theatrical event.
Starring 14 members of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television show’s cast and shot live during the summer concerts, the movie will capture the unique concert experience along with special moments involving the characters themselves.
“This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time we had to travel during our hiatus, there were only so many cities we could get to before we had to resume work on the television series,” commented Murphy. “We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity. Now, thanks to our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Film, we’ll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three dimensional glory. We promise every passionate ‘Gleek’ a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.”
Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame,” “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” series) will direct the film.
GLEE LIVE! 3D! will include live performances of some of the show’s most memorable musical numbers, including “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Lucky,” as well as the original songs that became chart-toppers such as “Loser Like Me,” “Hell to the No!” and “Get it Right,” and of course, the show’s anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The first “Glee” concert tour in 2010 was described by the Los Angeles Times as “triumphant,” while USA Today called the concerts “equal parts musical theater, giddy pop culture phenomenon and Journey-loving rock show.”
Tickets for “Glee Live! In Concert!” went on sale in February and are nearly sold out in all scheduled venues, prompting the studio to add additional shows for which limited tickets are still available. The concert series begins May 21 in Las Vegas with “Glee” stars Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Darren Criss (Blaine), Ashley Fink (Lauren) and members of “The Warblers” performing an all-new singing and dancing celebration of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning show.
