    ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ Trailer: The Five Coolest Moments

    http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1652498/20101117/story.jhtml

    Daniel Craig’s cuff, Harrison Ford’s nastiness and more caught our attention.

    Jon Favreau gives good trailer. Look no further than the first “Iron Man” footage, which in the span of two minutes managed to transform a C-list Marvel Comics superhero into the star of one of the most anticipated movies of 2008.

    The director once again finds himself with a lesser-known comic book property in “Cowboys & Aliens,” and he once again delivers one heck of a trailer. Here are our picks for the five coolest moments:

    Daniel Craig’s Cuff

    Craig’s Jake Lonergan wakes up in the late-19th-century Wild West looking seriously confused and sporting an anachronistic metallic cuff on his wrist. How’d he get it? What is its function? We soon learn that it’s some sort of high-tech weapon that can take out some nasty alien invaders.

    Humans vs. Aliens

    Make no mistake: Craig’s cuff isn’t some cheese-tastic weapon out of Will Smith’s “Wild Wild West.” The tone of “Cowboys & Aliens” is dark, humanity-in-peril stuff. The trailer delivers an awesome WTF moment when the cuff comes to life and unleashes some sort of pulse that takes out an alien craft. Kudos to Favreau for giving us a quick glimpse of that alien ship — small, winged, glowing with lights — and the sort of explosion-heavy battle that will be the lifeblood of this movie.

    Humans vs. Humans

    At least to begin, though, “Cowboys & Aliens” isn’t just about frontiersmen fighting extraterrestrials. The trailer’s first moments show us Craig in far more brutal form than in his James Bond flicks. He’s got no problem attacking people, blowing them away with a shotgun, and then stealing one of their hats, just ’cause he’ll look cool in it. Coldblooded! Note to aliens: You might not want to mess with this dude.

    Harrison Ford Goes Bad

    Even if this trailer doesn’t erase the memory of “Morning Glory,” it certainly gives us a taste of a Harrison Ford we haven’t seen in far too long. Here, he’s grizzled and nasty, and we dig it. “I want that man,” he spits. “You give him to me now, or I’m gonna take him.”

    Olivia Wilde Remembers

    Perhaps the most compelling bit of plot exposition in the film — aside from, of course, the arrival of those alien crafts — is a moment when Olivia Wilde saunters into a saloon to chat with Craig. “Do I know you?” he asks. “You don’t remember anything?” she responds. No, he does not. Apparently, he’s a wanted man with a $1,000 bounty on his head for being a “scourge à the territories.” So what happened? Why doesn’t he remember anything? And how is all of this connected to that mysterious cuff? The trailer hints at all of this during Wilde and Craig’s conversation, delivering no solid answers but getting us seriously excited about the film’s July 29, 2011, release date.

    Check out everything we’ve got on “Cowboys & Aliens.”

    Fio Says:

    Hi, elise
    You know Daniel and Favreau had rehearsed the play several times in LA before shooting C&A. In perfecting his role, I think they didn’t choose the cowboy of macho type. Yeah, Jake Lonergan have lost his memory, and is a brutal man.
    Hi, Mendel
    “Love the dark feel of it and the stunning visuals.”
    Honestly, it’s a movie that is far more serious than I have imagined.
    “and that mysterious cuff really does stand out!”

    Cowboys & Aliens Trailer: Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford Go Gunslinging

    http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2010/11/cowboys_aliens_trailer.html

    It’s the newest trend in moviemaking: Reinvigorate one moribund genre by mashing it up with another. Still, before Pride and Prejudice and Zombies director Mike White has his shot at mixing Jane Austen costume drama with the flesh-eating undead, Jon Favreau has beaten him to the punch with Cowboys & Aliens, a Western where the taciturn heroes team up to take out extraterrestrials, not Native Americans. If the poster sold a lot of Daniel Craig’s backside (which some of you didn’t mind at all, clearly), the new trailer gives the rest of him plenty more to do; most of the action depends on his face, craggy and hard, and his wrist, encircled by a high-tech bracelet that proves useful for shooting down aggressive UFOs. Toss in Harrison Ford (ornery) and Olivia Wilde (comely), and Favreau may have found something unique enough to survive summer 2011′s impending bloodbath.

    Ah…I’m very sleepy now. I feel so sleepy that I can hardly keep my eyes open…

    http://www.indiemoviesonline.com/news/cowboys-and-aliens-teaser-trailer-111810

    They’re calling it a teaser trailer but at two and a half minutes long, it provides more than a hint of what to expect from Cowboys & Aliens, next year’s summer multiplex bait. The promo introduces us to Harrison Ford’s Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde, the man who holds frontier town Silver City, Arizona in a vice-like grip. And to Daniel Craig’s Jake Lonergan, the outlaw who might just have the key to the town’s survival.

    The supporting cast includes Sam Rockwell, Paul Dano, Olivia Wilde, Keith Carradine and Walton Goggins. Here’s the trailer, which comes courtesy of Yahoo.

    While the mix of sci-fi and Western tropes might be disturbingly reminiscent of Barry Sonnenfeld’s Wild Wild West, there’s nothing goofy about this film at all. In fact, at first glance, it’s all rather po-faced. But surely Craig’s taciturn Jack Lonergan references the strong, silent heroes of Western genre classics, with a bit of a twist: he seems to have undergone some sort of alien mind-wipe, and his silence may be indicative of mental blankness. But last year’s summer comic book/western adaptation, Jonah Hex, provides another grim example of how wrong things can go, even with a solid actor (Josh Brolin) fronting the proceedings.

    Speculating somewhat, it seems as though this first look might only encompass one-third of the players. The plot apparently sees the titular cowboys teaming up with Apaches to combat the alien menace. But this trailer features no Apaches and only a glimpse of alien tech, so perhaps future trailers will introduce them and open up the story.

    Still, I can’t say I feel that enthused so far. Favreau has experience in the creation of successful blockbusters having helmed Iron Man and its sequel but the films were arguably carried by Robert Downey Jr’s charm and the very fun toys that commandeered so much of the screen time, with action set-piece proving a wee bit of a letdown. Interestingly, RDJ was initially slated for the Daniel Craig role in Cowboys & Aliens before pleading scheduling conflicts, and we can’t help but wonder how he would have managed those protracted periods of silence without the urge to ad-lib a few quips.

    One last question: why do extra-terrestrial invaders always seem to favour blue tractor beams? Perhaps it’s a fashion thing.

    Daniel Craig fans based in the UK can watch him in Love is the Devil and Love and Rage, right here on the site, absolutely free.

    what about where he is now, who is he with and is he going to Toronto for X-mas? he may be in NYC too for the holidays!(call me dan–i will warm all of you) Harry opens tomorrow here….yeay. probly won’t see it for a while, hubby just had abdominal hernia surgery. i am living my own personal hell, but use this for distraction as always. aaaaahhhhhh. keep writting. keep posting. may the force be with you…live long and prosper…keep your feet firmly flying in midair!! yikes…wish i was with you—cheers Mendel…..cuz i know what you are doing usually on a thurs!!!!!!!!!!

    When I heard Daniel booked to play Jake in C&A, I was a bit skeptic.
    What? Aliens? Cowboys and Aliens?? But I enjoyed really really seeing the trailer. Now I see why he wanted to star in C&A! It’s still a mystery who Jake is though Favreau gave us some hints…so my curiosity was aroused. Surely, he knows well the riddle excite curiosity!!

    “Cowboys & Aliens” Wins Trailer of the Week Amid a Heavy Field

    http://www.nbcnewyork.com/blogs/popcornbiz/Cowboys–Aliens-Wins-Trailer-of-the-Week-Amid-a-Heavy-Field-108729284.html

    Color us giddy. The first clip from “Cowboys & Aliens” is here and we couldn’t be much happier.

    Daniel Craig awakens in the desert with some weird “Space Ghost”-esque weapon strapped to his wrist. Olivia Wilde is the insanely hot chick in the saloon. Harrison Ford chews scenery as a nasty old sheriff. And spaceships shooting lasers come swooping out of the sky! Give us another 120 minutes of that — stat.

    Directed by Jon Favreau, produced by Ron Howard, Brain Grazer and Steven Spielberg and with a script by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and you’ve got pedigree for days on this adaptation of the beloved 2006 comic book.

    There’s been a pantload of new trailers out over the past 48 hours — “Green Lantern,” “Red Riding Hood,” “The Mechanic,” “Cars 2″ and “Winnie the Pooh,” among others — and none has us more stoked than “C&A.” And not because it’s a Universal picture, we swear.

    “Cowboys & Aliens” arrives July 29, 2011.

    The Awesome Cowboys & Aliens Trailer: Heavy on Cowboys, Low on Aliens

    http://www.movieline.com/2010/11/the-awesome-cowboys-aliens-trailer-heavy-on-cowboys-low-on-aliens.php

    After the soul-crushing awfulness of the trailer for Green Lantern, it’s nice to know that at least one summer movie in 2011 won’t be a total disappointment. The trailer for Cowboys & Aliens — which will get some serious placement in front of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Part I this weekend — has premiered online and it’s nowhere near as silly as the title might have you believe. In fact, it looks pretty harrowing. Well, for a movie about cowboys fighting aliens.

    Daniel Craig (and his butt) stars as Jake Lonergan, an outlaw who wakes up in the middle of nowhere with some sort of alien bracelet on his wrist and no recollection of his past. Yikes! After disposing of some generic western baddies, he heads to the nearest town to reunite with the girl he doesn’t remember (Olivia Wilde) and the sheriff who wants him captured (Harrison Ford). Things look bleak for our hero until the alien bracelet lights up and aliens attack. Cue explosions, some other first-act shenanigans and plenty of concerned stares.

    You know what? This thing looks fantastic. Everything from the mood to the mystery to the way it doesn’t actually reveal the aliens feels just right. Jon Favreau, you’re forgiven for Iron Man 2. And Zathura.

    VERDICT: Yee-haw! (Sold.)

    ____________________________
    I said that Dream House will have problems and now this movie is really postponed. and as MGM solves a debt so 23 Bond starts quickly so Dream House will be postponed for more long time.

    Cowboys and Aliens will probably need reshoot because most of people in forums dont like the trailer. just read forums. The set of C&A will wait for busy Daniel like the set of Dream House.

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will be postponed for other reason and it just gives room for 23.Bond. Just wait 5 months for it.

    you supposed MGM to crash and be sold but I said MGM will stand its own feet and investors will come not to buy MGM but finance the movies and pay a debt. That had happened according to this scenario.
    Then I said some investors will contact Babs Broccoli to ask if they can fund 23 Bond and really they contacted her.

    Months ago, I said that on this November Daniel will not be with Satsuki. He is not with her anymore…

    23 Bond was planned to start this summer and I said it but nobody believed it. Then they really confirmed they planned it. Then I said 23 Bond has still a chance to start at the end of this year or in the beginning of next year.

    So Dream House is postponed, C&A is very bad and got bad reviews so they will improve it. Dragon tattoo – its question of time what happens on the set. give it more time and you will see. I hope Daniel will never finish reshoot of Dream House but he will do.

    I have actually seen them in person at the New York premier for QOS. I got pretty close actually.
    You definitely look twice when you see her, but not in a good way.
    She is striking only in the sense that you are struck at how strange her looks are.
    She is very, what is the word, gawky, that’s the only word I can think of.
    I’m sorry, but I heard people standing around me commenting about the same thing. I heard one guy say “what does he see in her.”
    I heard another couple talking about how they couldn’t believe how “ugly she was in person.”
    I hate to break it to you, but when you see her up close in person, she’s really, and I mean REALLY, not attractive.
    Her wrinkly skin is even more pronounced when you see her up close. Her skin really does look leathery, which is such a shame at her young age.
    And believe it or not, they are not that affectionate when the paps aren’t shooting them. They were walking apart a lot when their pictures weren’t being taken.
    I heard several people comment after they went inside about how they don’t even look like a “couple.” My husband and I were really surprised. We actually thought that she would be more beautiful in person, but she actually looks better in pictures, and I guess that isn’t saying a whole lot, since she doesn’t look too good in most of her pictures.
    We were also surprised at how distant they were with each other when not posing for pictures.
    Like I said, I don’t have any stake in these two, and I don’t care what they do, but seeing her and them in person, up close, was kind of disappointing.
    Like I said, I was expecting her to be beautiful in person, and she was kind of the opposite, and my husband and I were both expecting them to be really close, but they weren’t.
    I know I’ll probably get attacked for saying all of this, but hey, I just thought I would share my experience in seeing these two personally at the premier.
    It was really disappointing. But we liked the movie when we went to see

    He sent her a message but no response yet.
    I feel very strongly that she will respond tomorrow.
    This woman will not run to him.

    people arent looking forward to see C&A and give a dollar at the cinemas. they are saying about trailer on youtube:

    “This doesnt only look bad, it also looks bad without being even funny.”

    “is this a comedy bec it doesnt seem to funny?”

    “Wow Jon Favreau has relly pulled out all the stops with this one. Not sure that long black hair and bikini top suits Daniel Craig too much.”
    ……………………………………………

    Then themoviepool.com says:

    It’s not that the trailer is bad. It’s serviceable, and does a good job at introducing some of the elements in play in the movie. But seeing something put to film and hearing a plot description of that film is two completely different things. Well Cowboys & Aliens being in the same movie sounds great on paper, seeing it put to film is a little jarring. Obviously we knew it would be, but the reason this trailer is only “serviceable” is because the film shows no fun whatsoever. The trailer is played serious, but this movie should be anything but. Campy and ridiculous would fit much better then an uber-serious sci-fi film. Because let me remind you; IT’S COWBOYS AND ALIENS!

    Producers of the movie C&A surely expected first reviews for the trailer and now they can see how people called it not funny or they just expressed boredom. I am wondering what this makes with the producers and if they will want to change scenes and make more “funny trailer and movie for people.” I think they would do it if they want people’s dollars to come into their pocket.

    NOW I am expecting reviews from the biggest film critics what they say about the trailer and the movie that they watch during unofficial screening. They are the ones who decide if the movie goes through or needs to reshoot. Invasion did reshoot and still failed at people’s eyes. Dream House has the need of reshoot as well and from the beginning people said they dont go see it. Now C&A is in hands of film critics…………………….

    to Bianca/Gina

    you’re back; this time 7 posts. what exactly is your problem. first off, gina, james bond 23 has been scheduled for release in November 2012. that means filming will not start until sometime in 2011. just because you want otherwise is not important

    C&A is coming out in July 2011, Gina, so therefore it can not be in the hands of the critics. that being the case, how the critics give either good or bad reviews of the film. the trailer may have gotten some bad reviews but that will not stop C&A from coming out on schedule. the number of bad trailers are, i bet, numerous; yet each time the films all came out on time.

    Dream House has been put back until September 2011, so what? it’s not the first film that has had to have scenes reshot. i don’t think it will be the last. Dragon Tattoo is also on schedule. Look, Gina, i understand that you want Daniel to make Bond 23 and he will.

    but you have to understand that as an actor he will make other films while waiting for bond filming to begin. you may not like the roles he has chosen but guess what he does not answer to you. also, Gina, they are not going to hold back Dream House, C&A, and Dragon Tattoo until after Bond is released in 2012. now please, deal with the realities.

    But yes, the green eyed woman still can come, I bet she will appear between “reunioned” couple Daniel and Satsuki. Maybe she too pushed on him to marry her so he went away and now he could feel alone so he could take her back and again promise marriage..

    How did you bag the role in “Casino Royale”?
    It was through a pretty extended audition process. I finally got the job after an eight-hour audition. Once I got selected, I had to learn how to fight, handle weapons and explosives. I had to be part of a 10-day camp in Prague where I learnt the basics with the stunt team. I shot with Daniel Craig in the first week of principle photography. It was thrilling to be part of such a historic project. Martin Campbell, the director, is an extraordinary guy. He invests his tireless energy in the film and had a lot of faith in me. I think, he reinvented the Bond franchise.

    How was it to work with Daniel Craig?
    Everyone asks me this! Daniel Craig is a really solid, real actor. But, he is a private person. He is warm, caring, kind and extremely talented and made my introduction to the movies a wonderful experience.

    This week in Your Poster is cool we’re going to be talking about three teaser posters for upcoming genre fare. Read more to see which poster takes home the prize this week. First up Chicago director Rob Marshall takes over the Black Pearl…
    The best teaser trailer for a summer film released this week was without a doubt Jon Favreau’s Cowboys and Aliens. Check out my thoughts on the trailer here. At my screening of Harry Potter last night the teaser got everyone’s attention very quickly and the general mood was one of excitement as it ended. The teaser poster furthers the tone we see in the trailer by playing with the archetypes of the old west, while giving then a modern infusion. The Lone Hero (Daniel Craig) stands with his back to the viewer and is ready for anything, while his alien tech gives us just enough “wow” to get our attention. This in my opinion is a great poster, that utilizes simplicity in a more effective way than say the Pirates poster above. It gets my vote for poster of the week.

    and seems like that his sexyass would sell the movie. Did not he say that he wants to do serious arts? what then that sexyass in poster? his a.ss is that serious arts? hm….. well.

    bianca Says:

    The James Bond star has a “need for some serious art”.

    “He needs to fulfill a need for some serious art so might turn to the stage,” a source said.

    “The one thing that fires him up is work. He’s earned a lot of money but doesn’t have the respect he deserves — he’s a phenomenal actor.

    “He considers himself an artist first and a celebrity a distant second.

    “He’s a pretty reserved guy. Sure, he’s got an amazing lifestyle but he’s not at all boastful. The one thing he really wants is to be respected as an artist.””
    ________________________________________________
    yeah, he is a phenomenal actor “respected for his phenomenal a.ss.”

    to be honest, “cowboys and aliens is not serious art”…….eh?

    TO Gina Says:

    Bond is no serious art either.
    And I’m really bored by all “the source said”.
    It’s pretty clear that he’s enjoying what he’s doing right now. And he was and is foremost an actor then a movie star, so he’ll do some stage work from time to time, just like other actors are doing too.
    Look at the last years season on Broadway. There have been “movie stars” en mass on stage and no doubt he will do that again.
    And in the meantime I’ll enjoy his ass.

    “So I can’t really recommend Flashbacks of a Fool–unless you’re a Daniel Craig fan and wish to check out his fine assets. I was never bored during the film, but the story is one we’ve all seen before. I give the movie a C+–and the + is for Craig’s divine cheekiness.”

    well, so the movie was not really good and the only thing what Daniel showed was not a serious art but his a.ss..
    unfortunately his a.ss did not sell FOAF well….
    do you think that poster with his a.ss and the trailer will convince fans to go to the cinema? as they are joking about his photoshoped a.ss and not much funny trailer….

And of course the trailer isn’t funny, it’s not supposed to be funny duh! It’s been shot as a serious cowboy movie with sci-fi elements. If you (and others) don’t understand that, then it only says something about your lack of intelligence.

    What do you think of the Casino Royale film?

    http://top10franchise.net/what-do-you-think-of-the-casino-royale-film.html

    Casino Royale is the best Bond film ever. It really turned the Bond franchise on its head. I don’t think the audience appreciate hyper reality action sequences anymore. I am sure Bourne Identity was the inspiration for Casino Royale. The series had become stagnant, the action sequences were predictable and the invisible car in the previous film with Pierce Brosnan was just stupid. Daniel Craig is perfect as the new James Bond. You really feel that you are watching a human being with extrordinary capabilities rather than some idiot with annoying smirk and nice gadgets. Considerably beefed up, Craig at least looks the part of somebody who can defend himself. He is also a lot smarter than the other Bonds, who were so good at getting themselves caught in the line of duty that you wondered if they were mentally on the same level as Forest Gump.

    Indiana Jones and James Bond fight an invasion in Cowboys and Aliens

    JOE’s Trailer Park returns to showcase the trailers and clips from Hollywood’s latest, including Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig teaming up for Cowboys & Aliens.

    James Bond and Indiana Jones taking on aliens in the wild west, from the director of Iron Man? Sold, sold – a million times sold. Perhaps you can sense an overwhelming excitement in JOE towers for the below teaser trailer for next summer’s Cowboys & Aliens, based on the 2006 graphic novel of the same, yet we do believe Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford’s sci-fi/horror/cowboy movie could be the antidote to next summer’s glut of sequels and superhero movies.

    Set in 1873 Arizona, Craig stars as a loner named Jake Lonergan who awakens with no memory of his past and a mysterious shackle around his wrist. He enters the town of Absolution where he learns he committed many crimes he doesn’t remember and is wanted by many people, including Colonel Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford), a harsh leader who rules the town with an iron fist. But Absolution soon faces an even greater threat when mysterious forces attack the town from the sky (the “demons” mentioned in the below trailer), sparing no one in their path. While Jake’s shackle holds the key to defeating them, he must align himself with Dolarhyde and other former enemies to make a stand against this mysterious and more powerful new foe. Sounds fun, right?

    With The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo also arriving next year, Craig is on the cusp of becoming a bona fide A-lister and removing the shackles of the Bond franchise, while it’s great to see Harrison Ford playing against type and playing a contemptuous character for once. Due for release in late July 2011, let’s hope Cowboys & Aliens can remove the bitter taste Wild Wild West and Jonah Hex put in our mouths and place westerns firmly on Hollywood’s radar once more.

    Cowboys & Aliens: The Greatest Crossover Movie of All-Time?

    There’s a certain delight in the crossover movie; films like Alien vs. Predator (2004), Freddy vs. Jason (2003), and, of course, Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus (2009) give us the answers to the late-night, who-would-win-in-a-fight arguments that we’ve had with our friends over the years.

    What has me curious about Cowboys & Aliens is that the teaser trailer is very serious: the first half of trailer makes Cowboys & Aliens out to be a strong, but run-of-the-mill modern Western until you see a beeping, metallic wristband on Daniel Craig. After the arrival of strange noises and earthly explosions, Craig shoots down a flying saucer with a laser projectile from his wristband, and in complete earnest, raises his head to stare stoically at a realistically shocked, yet calm Harrison Ford. The title screen immediately follows, leaving me with the following revelations: “Hey, Daniel Craig looks good in a Western,” “it’s about time Harrison Ford got more villainous roles,” and “Is someone really making a camp-less movie about cowboys and aliens?”

    The third revelation, of course, is the most important, as the seriousness of a movie about cowboys and aliens facing off is more novel than the novelty of cowboys fighting aliens; from this premise, I wonder: “How are they going to address the advantages that alien technology has over that of 19th century cowboys?”

    I also feel like this movie is headed for a tongue-in-check, anti-National Treasure (2004) moment, where it refuses to provide exposition for the mythology of Roswell, New Mexico and Area 51. Cowboys & Aliens looks refreshing for its meta-humor: being funny by being serious, and in the crossover genre, that’s a welcome change.

    ________________________________________________
    You started first about Bond.
    How did I say it before?
    that Dragon Tattoo “would be” postponed because of 23.Bond, Right?
    from imdb:
    “Daniel Craig originally turned down the role of Mikael Blomkvist due to possible conflicts with the next James Bond film Bond 23 (2012). After production of the film was suspended Craig’s schedule freed up and retook the role.”
    _______________________________
    so that if they didnt suspend Bond because of MGM problems so he would work on Bond and soon come appear at bond premiers and Dragon Tattoo would start next shooting year as Sony and Rudin originally planned.
    Its for me surprise that Daniel refused a part of Blomkvist, that time he still didnt know what is going with Bond, then EON announced suspended Bond and he took a part in Dragon Tattoo.
    If he made Bond so he would not be Mikael or maybe they would wait for him as he will be done with work on Bond.
    Why there are no news from Dragon Tattoo set?

    The 007 Chronicles: ‘Quantum of Solace’ — Anatomy of an Under-Appreciated Bond Adventure

    http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/lmeyers/2010/11/21/quantum-of-solace-anatomy-of-an-under-appreciated-bond-adventure/

    [Ed. Note: This is the first part of a series that will run every two weeks in this slot and examine each of the James Bond films individually. Many, many thanks to Lawrence for agreeing to take this on, but after reading his defense of "Quantum" I had to ask -- JN]

    Certain movies take a second viewing to really appreciate their depth. Such is the case with Quantum of Solace, the under appreciated second film to star Daniel Craig as James Bond. I initially had a lukewarm reaction to the movie. I wasn’t crazy about the story or the surprisingly short length (99 minutes, compared to 120 or more for most Bond adventures), I felt the editing was choppy, and the climax predictable. Critics felt that, as the second in a trilogy, is was merely marking time, and I felt the same. Ugh, and that title!

    I watched it again on Blu-Ray and I’m pleased to say that the film has a lot more to it than meets the eye. Some may argue that if a film doesn’t have the intended impact on its first go-round that it hasn’t succeeded, period. I disagree. Every time a viewer watches a movie, the circumstances differ while the film remains a constant. Therefore, the viewing experience will differ. The degree of change depend upon which variables are altered. In my case, it was mostly the transition from movie theatre to home theatre.

    I think what both I and critics missed on a first viewing, is that Quantum is a revenge film. Audiences simply aren’t used to this theme in a Bond film, save License To Kill, an under-appreciated offering with Timothy Dalton’s Bond from 1989 that also starred Big Hollywood’s own Robert Davi. However, Quantum is most definitely a Bond film, one that simultaneously deepens our understanding of the character in both an immediate and historical context.
    Character Counts

    The big difference between Quantum and Casino Royale, and their predecessors is a focus on character more than plot. The central relationship concerns the issue of trust between Bond and M, who must wrangle the talented but explosively unpredictable agent.

    Viewers of Casino Royale will recall that Bond fell in love with Vesper Lynd, who was forced to betray Bond to save her boyfriend. She was being blackmailed by the mysterious entity we still only know as QUANTUM, but which is likely to be revealed as a modern-day version of SPECTRE. Vesper kills herself at the end of the movie, and while Bond is shaken, we don’t see how deeply this set of events has wounded him until Quantum of Solace. Remember that Quantum picks up immediately following the end of Casino Royale, so we have not seen Bond process Vesper’s death.

    In the scene where Bond delivers Mr. White to M in Siena, there is a brief exchange that sets up Bond’s motivation and actions for the entire film, and presses the trust issue (begins at 2:10):

    M: “I need to know that I can trust you.”

    Bond: “You don’t?”

    M: “You’d have to be a pretty cold ******* not to want revenge for the death of someone he loved.”

    Bond: “You don’t have to worry about me. I’m not going to go chasing him. He’s not important. And neither was she.”

    Watch Craig’s delivery. He is angry at the professional affront, but the subtext is that Vesper was important to him, but there’s no way he’ll admit it.

    From then on, every step of the way, Bond kills everyone that might offer a lead, just as he did in Royale. After being told by the Prime Minister to pull Bond in because he’s “running wild”, M confronts the agent (begins 5:22):

    Bond: “I’m disappointed.”

    M: “You are?”

    Bond: “How much oil did the Americans promise you?”

    M: “This isn’t about oil.”

    Bond: “That’s good. Because there isn’t any.”

    M: “It’s about trust. You said you weren’t motivated by revenge”

    Bond: “I’m motivated by my duty.”

    M: “I think you’re so blinded by inconsolable rage that you don’t care who you hurt When you can’t tell your friends from your enemies, it’s time to get out.”

    And, indeed, Bond learns he has mistakenly killed a member of Special Branch at the gala. This scene is capped with his discovery of Fields’ body (in an homage to Goldfinger) – an innocent sent to round up Bond, who he routinely and oh-so-casually seduced simply to keep her out of his way.

    The death of Fields and the Special Branch agent are the primary motivators that alter Bond’s quest for revenge. Add in the death of Mathis, and Camille’s confession that her revenge killing of the General did not bring her solace, and Bond has learned his lesson. This revelation translates into action. Bond does not kill Vesper’s duplicitous boyfriend when he finds him, instead turning him over to M.I.6. He admits to M that she was right, and then leaves Vesper’s necklace in the snow. He has found his quantum of solace.

    There is also considerable depth afforded to Camille’s character, a direct assault on the expectations we have of a traditional Bond girl. She expresses the emotions which both she and Bond carry, but which Bond represses. There is also some solid emotional heft associated with Bond’s discovery of Mathis’ execution.

    Emotional moments are not hallmarks of Bond films. I suspect detractors were caught off-guard and rejected it because it didn’t conform to their expectations.

    Action and Editing

    The action scenes and editing are unsettling on a first viewing, particularly the first two sequences. Dan Bradley was hired as the second unit director, who also did second unit on the last two Bourne films. These films began the trend of shooting and editing action scenes in extremely clipped form, making it impossible to discern the scene’s geography. The stylistic intent was to immerse the audience in what the experience would truly feel like. While an admirable experiment, this approach has always frustrated me. Part of the enjoyment of a great action sequence is to marvel at its very execution. Recall the car chases in Frankenheimer’s Ronin. These are, I believe, the best car chases put on film, with crystal clear geography, extraordinary choreography and no CGI:

    The opening chase sequence in Quantum is thrilling, but there are significant geography problems for portions of it. I will say, however, that the entrance into the scene is unique and compelling. As the music builds, the film cuts between Bond and the villains, visually deconstructing what we are about to see in full – eyes, a ream of bullets, tires turning, shadows and light flickering across each shot — before the editor slams us into the action amidst roaring engines and gunfire:

    The second action sequence – Bond chasing M’s bodyguard Mitchell – initially suffers from the same clipped editing and confusing geography. However, in a throwback to earlier Hollywood style, the scene is cleverly crosscut with a running of Palio di Siena, a biannual horserace, providing an aesthetically pleasing visual correlative to the footchase. The two scenes then literally collide, as they should, as both men emerge from a manhole in the crowd and the chase continues outdoors. From this point onward, the sequence’s geography stabilizes.

    The subsequent pursuit across the rooftops is daring, thrilling, and more importantly, shows the cold determination of Bond. He takes a physical beating in this scene, which climaxes inside a building under construction. Then there is a clever foreshadowing and visual correlative as the men race up a flight of stairs, knocking aside an old woman, causing her to loose her grip on a rope pulley – sending a basket of cherries crashing to the ground. Moments later, the two men themselves are on a rope pulley, swinging back and forth, crashing into the sides and ceilings of the construction site. Viewers are also treated to Bond’s (and the writer’s) intelligence just before – as he chases Mitchell to the top of a bell tower. Bond yanks the bell rope, sounding the chimes loudly so as to cover his entrance into the tower. This kind of subtle character moment is easily lost on the inattentive viewer

    However, a second viewing of the film allows one to follow the geography of these scenes more closely, and I felt a greater appreciation for their execution and choreography. Take notice also of David Arnold’s score. Although it cuts back significantly on the James Bond Theme, the composition is just perfect for the action – underlining the tension without being on the nose, tossing in the appropriate riffs at particularly daring moments, and relying heavily on horns as Bond movies are wont to do.

    Interestingly, the remaining set pieces provide much greater geographical clarity. I’m mystified as to why this is the case, but the film is immensely aided by it, particularly during the dogfight sequence.

    Comparisons Are Inevitable

    Viewers will inevitably compare Quantum to previous Bond films. I find comparisons problematic because the films have been around for 40 years, the series has shifted among six lead actors, and across significant changes in cinematic aesthetics.

    For viewers longing for the traditional Bond trappings involving Q, gadgets, cackling villains utilizing sci-fi technology, and eccentric nemeses like Jaws, let me suggest that they have become anachronistic. Bond films were always one step ahead of the latest cinematic innovations – whether they be stunts or special effects. Now, however, every film seems intent on pushing the envelope. How can Bond compete with Avatar? To survive, the Bond series had to reinvent itself just as Star Trek did.

    Rather than go bigger – how much bigger can you get than a car driving through a melting ice mansion? — the logical choice was to strip Bond down to its essence. The innovations had to be in character, not in special effects or stunts. This makes perfect sense, given that Bond had previously been more about characterization than character. Short of seeing Bond’s vulnerability in his doomed love affair with Diana RIgg in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, or with Sophie Marceau in The World Is Not Enough (a direct homage to the former), he is presented more as icon than human.

    Given the shift in action (and horror) film aesthetics towards presenting material more realistically, and that the reboot’s intent is to examine how Bond developed into the more iconic character we know and love, the new milieu is entirely appropriate. We would naturally expect him to be rough around the edges and undisciplined. That approach alone calls for a removal of the expected Bondian elements.

    Those critics who claim that Bond is barely Bond in Quantum, but instead a more generic action hero, miss this point entirely. Their expectations sabotage their enjoyment of the film on its own terms – terms that are perfectly logical and innovative.

    I hope viewers and critics will give Quantum of Solace a second look. It is not a perfect film, but it is a darn fine one that is more deserving of praise than has been presently heaped upon it.

    Thanks for the link/pic. For me, any man that wears a suit is sexy. Daniel looks very manly with his suit! As for Favreau’s trailer commentary, it’s interesting the idea for the alien technology shackled to Dan’s character’s wrist was Steven Spielberg’s idea.

    Hi, D.C. Girl
    I totally agree!!! His co-star feels admiration for his talent. Daniel has a natural awesome talent, but the question is whether he can use it or not. I think he has succeeded by virtue of his constant efforts. I can’t help admiring it!

    Fio, I agree about the review of QOS. The first time I saw the movie in the theatre I was a bit underwhelmed after Casino Royale. However,when I brought it home to watch with my husband who is quite the fiilm buff, he said he liked it alot as did I after a second viewing. He even prefered it to CR which he liked. Maybe that’s understandable being that it had less romance and more revenge based action – very testosterone driven if you will…
    Anyway It was a well writ review and sums it up nicely. Thanks for sharing And I agree about what he says about the car chase in the movie Ronin. Side note – Ronin also had an amazing soundtrack.

    Ray Winstone wants to play James Bond

    http://www.bloginity.com/blog/2010/11/24/ray-winstone-wants-to-play-james-bond/

    Ray Winstone wants to play James Bond.

    The British actor – best known for his roles in ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’ and ‘The Departed’ – believes he would make a “great” Bond but worries he could not compete with the physical standards set by current 007 Daniel Craig.

    He said: “I think Bond will be back soon. I’d make a great Bond wouldn’t I! You know, he’s a Londoner, he’s a killer and a lover! I’m a killer lover!

    “Mind you Daniel’s alright in the Speedos, he’s got the eight-pack hasn’t he? I’ve got the barrel.”

    The 53-year-old star claims working with legendary director Martin Scorsese on ‘The Departed’ was a personal career highlight because of the talent involved.

    He told Christian O’Connell’s Absolute Radio Breakfast Show DJ: “If you’re a footballer that would be like playing at Wembley, if you’re a boxer it’s like playing at Madison Square Gardens – it’s your Cup Final. It was for me – surrounded by that talent – Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese.”

    Hi, erica

    Exactly. His Bond was markedly new and radical change, but some people are resistant to any change. Doh!

    Hi, D.C. Girl

    Yeah, Bond thirsted for revenge, and became wild for revenge.
    Desperate Bond often went too far. He was unwilling or unable to forgive or show mercy, but resolute in the face of pain and danger or adversity. And that’s why I love the last deeply meaningful significant scene.

    Hi, DiH

    “But they will be in Toronto soon, so I guess we won’t have to wait too long.”

    Yeah, you’re right. As you know, Lainey lives in Toronto, so she will see something ;)

    To all the split theorists:
    All of you must be very naive to think everytime Daniel and Sats step out they are photographed. How many times do they go somewhere together in the past and haven’t been?
    They go out, they go to lunch, dinners, they go to friends’/relatives’ places, they go to airports, they go places in general.The paps don’t get them all the time. For example, Daniel was in London this weekend. Was he papped? No.The times they aren’t papped outweigh enormously the times they are. So they’re not seen together in a picture since the Met Ball in May.
    When Daniel goes to Toronto to re-shoot in December with Rachel and if they are ‘together’, you think they will show us then anyway? No but great PR for a move.

    One thing for sure, Satsuki will be there in full glory proving everyone wrong.

    Manliest Man Film Ever

    http://markcan0001.journalspace.com/2010/11/25/manliest-man-film-ever/

    Right chaps, this film is was made for you. Yes all of manly-kind. Cowboys & Aliens is more manly than having a stick specifically for stirring paint. A ****-shaped stick. With tits on.

    Forget the stupid name, we know it’s crap, like they’ve mashed two genres together and hoped that someone else would have a good idea. But look, it’s got James Bond and Indiana Jones in it! Would you like to tell them you don’t like their films?

    They’re really tough and they’ll beat you up with whips and special devices to cause you absolute agonising man pain. Thought not.

    Every man needs to see this film. It’s got Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in it, which can only be a festival of moody looking off into the middle distance followed by outrageous stunts and intense violence. It’s directed by John Favreau [I read that as 'John Fashanu' which would be a very different film - Ed.], the guy that did Iron Man. Yeah. Tony Stark made you feel inadequate too didn’t he?

    You need to man up. Watch this film and maybe you’ll learn something.

    The trailer doesn’t give much away, but we are expecting a mysterious start in a dusty Western setting which would make Ol’ Clint feel at home. Then someone starts pouring testosterone on the script and Craig gets all punchy, then arrested, then all moody and tries to outscowl Indy.

    And then stuff starts blowing up.

    Because spaceships arrive.

    Yes, we know how that sounds. Rubbish. But have a look at the trailer, it’s awesome. They don’t go overboard with the aliens, the fight scenes are all the more brutal for their realism and Craig’s bracelet/WMD becomes all the more awesome with it’s increasing weirdness.

    Ford and Craig’s blossoming friendship is not an on-screen reacharound like most ‘buddy movies’, there’s some woman involved but she’s neither token tart or drippy damsel. She’s a manly woman. Or something.

    Summer 2011 can’t come around quickly enough. This could be the perfect cocktail of movie genres, intense action, old school tough guy acting and flatout coolness. It’s got the classic “man with no friends/name/past/morals” western storyline and adds in the “blowing stuff up is really cool” element of sci-fi and action.

    This film is going to become a right of passage for future males. Along with the first shave, passing the driving test and losing the V plates, Cowboys and Aliens will become one of those moments that make us dewy eyed as old men.

    Turkey Dinner: Shaken, Not Stirred – CASINO ROYALE (2006)

    http://the-smoking-pen.blogspot.com/2010/11/turkey-dinner-shaken-not-stirred.html

    Ah, Thanksgiving. To most, Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful, to enjoy the company of family, and wear elastic waistband pants. To me, Thanksgiving means one thing: the James Bond marathon on Spike TV (which has been switched to the Syfy channel this year because Spike decided Gangland was a better way to celebrate Thanksgiving? Spike. C’mon). How this became an annual “thing” I’m not sure, I really don’t know what British spies have to do with the most American tradition to date. Nonetheless, I find that every year my attempt to kick back and enjoy an epic 007 marathon is thwarted by the people who want to sit across from me and eat a giant turkey. Well. In attempt to get my Bond fix in DESPITE this alleged holiday called Thanksgiving, I decided to do a movie review of Casino Royale. Why Casino Royale? You might ask. It’s recent, it’s controversial, and it happens to be one of my favorite Bond movies. Groan. How unloyal of me to enjoy a Bond film that didn’t have the God of all Bond, Sean Connery, in it, right? Well, I will not disagree with you there. Sean Connery is THE James Bond. However, I think the last two Bond movies have something very interesting going on in them that really switches up the entire franchise as we know it.
    We’ve seen it happening to other movies. Batman Begins (2005) is a great example. Do we remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger was Mr. Freeze, and not in the cool Terminator way, but in the Campy McCampster way? Or Adam West, the most hilarious and most schizophrenic Batman yet? Christopher Nolan took a sudden and extremely dark and serious turn with Patrick Bateman’s heavy growl and angsty forehead. Tis the season for dark and angsty, and 007 picked it up right away. Despite the range of opinions on Daniel Craig’s portrayal of James Bond, one thing is for certain: he definitely changed the face of 007 from here on out, and it’s not because of the blonde hair. Casino Royale is dark, grimy, and deadly. Gone are the cartoonish (though classic) villains like Jaws and the near superhero Bond who drove invisible ice cars (good f***ing riddance). Instead, we have a Bond who’s actually human. The opening ten minutes literally demolish every Bond that’s come before. Bond is sloppy, Bond has origins, Bond is devilishly clever instead of all out muscle. And it’s like falling back in love after 20 years of marriage.
    Granted, I’m extraordinarily biased. I could see Daniel Craig as Bond the second he was cast, thanks to Layer Cake. I know there are a lot of people who have multiple problems with him, some of which I can’t disagree with. Yes, I did miss the constant witty quips of the previous Bond movies, though they did make a real effort to toss them in there now and then. And yes, maybe Craig has a hard time smiling and therefore smirking arrogantly, which no Bond can be without. Nonetheless, I stand by him and hope to see him in many more Bond films to come. Also, Craig has voted for a gay Bond scene. I would literally die happy. Possibly in my theater seat.
    Craig aside, the movie had a lot of great perks. Case in point, Vesper Lynd, played by the extraordinarily gorgeous Eva Green. She was a classic Bond Girl–sexy, sexy, and sexy. She also happened to be extremely clever and a nice counterpoint to Bond–both with her humanity and her willingness to constantly challenge him. Speaking of “origin” stories, it was nice to see a sort of…pre-Bond Bond. A Bond who developed trust issues with women thanks to a certain Vesper Lynd. Sure, he has a heavy petting session with Caterina Murino, but who wouldn’t? Bond has a heart, to the point where he almost gets married. And not in the awkward On Her Majesty’s Secret Service way. In a way that we go “Ahhh…now we understand where the womanizer comes from.”
    For some noteworthy moments, we got Jeffery Wright as Felix Leiter, which was a great choice. He’s gruff, but has a great brotherly chemistry with 007. And Judi Dench, of course, returned as M. I hope that woman never leaves–there is really no other M. for me. Who doesn’t love Bond bleeding some Mommy issues? Lastly, Le Chiffre. Overall, he’s not so intimidating. He’s clearly just a man who got himself in a bad spot and is currently paying hell for it. However, he does bleed blood, and that’s f***ing great. It’s a little nod to the comic book style Bond of simpler times.
    Lastly, some great moments. The card game was riveting, which is extraordinarily hard to do when it’s…you know. A long card game in the middle of an action film. Also, the torture scene was great. Again. Never before has Bond had his masculinity so…well. Beaten. But he took it like a sport. I had the joy of seeing this scene with my grandmother. I’m pretty sure I traumatized her for the rest of her days.
    I could go on. Bond has a very special place in my heart and there’s little I love more than ranting about it. However, I will just leave with a bit of advice for the next movies: Please, God, PLEASE give me Miss Moneypenny and Q back!!! You can reinvent Bond all you want, but they’re classics. And Judi Dench, never die. That is all.

I would feel better if I could have some of your hairspray flavored drinks with you and the gang!!!

    Fio–thx for the Bond Thanksgiving article!! I forgot about the marathons!! Yes! It was written well—and i loved he watched the scene with his grandmother!! I cringed and skipped scenes in the GWTDT watching with my MOM!!! (the sexxxy scenes too-not just the bad icky scenes). AHHH–good trivia I just thought of!! Which actor played Bond when he DID marry and she died? I can see them driving in a car, but can’t remember who played Bond….ahhhhh.

    And the manly movie of Aliens and Cowboys? Too bad they dont have French Maids, a reallly hot tart(wow–he crushed Olivia’s hotness rating), monkeys(men love monkeys), a car chase, and some good ‘ole drunken bar-boob room- crashing scene, then they REALLY would be walking out a man after watching that movie!! goofy boyz!! thx fio.

    oh, DF– Imma gonna agree with your post…the two always got papped after some huge controversy came out with them not being with each other….so, it has been a while. And her country (here) has this big holiday and I thought if anything , he can see the Macy Day parade from his loft room. The separation can still be a 50/50 chance of being true.

    “and cold. It’s freezing here.”

    I returned my home yesterday. OMG, bloody cold!!!

    “Why do people always use the words ‘ride’ and ‘Dan’ in one sentence;) This is from the Lainey article: “Both are rather private, especially Craig, and he may have chosen to simply ride out the rumours, true or not.” Maybe he really does…ride…*grin* out the rumours!”

    Hit the bull’s eye! lol
    We always have a fancy and particular liking and desire for Daniel.
    IMO ‘Daniel’ and ‘ride’ are very ideal combinations! Like the name of Einstein is closely associated with the theory of relativity. Now people associate violent demonstrations with education :(

    Hi, DF
    Thanks for the QOS/melt a stone pics. Look at the second pic from the right! Waayyyy too cute! Aww my resistance is ‘melted’ under his smile :)

    “And aren’t they usually very good at “making a statement without making a statement”.”

    I like your phrase…making a statement without making a statement.
    Yeah, for circumstantial evidence, that’s plenty. But we must respect the presumption of innocence :)

    Bond. James Bond.

    http://devinettehasopinions.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/bond-james-bond/

    Happy Thanksgiving, America. If you would like to take some time away from football and gluttony, I’d like to talk to you about another Thanksgiving weekend tradition: James Bond movie marathons.

    Thanks to cable television, I have seen every official James Bond movie ever made. I’m not an expert by any means, but since when does not being an expert on something mean one can’t enjoy it?

    In honor of my beloved Thanksgiving tradition of Bond mania, I’d like to give you my picks for the Top 3 best films in the James Bond franchise.

    3. Casino Royale (2006)

    Okay, I might get some **** for this, but I love this movie. I hated Quantum of Solace, though. I was really disappointed that the continuation of the storyline from Casino Royale turned out to be such a piece of crap. Regardless, this film features another reboot in the Bond franchise. Instead of Commies, Bond is now fighting terrorists! And he does it by playing poker! Amazing.

    •Daniel Craig is awesome. And not just because he can rock a speedo like no straight man ever has before or since.
    I admit, I was highly skeptical of the casting decision when I found out some Aryan man had been cast. My mind was changed before the opening credits rolled. Craig plays Bond true to the novels. He is cold and calculating, the complete opposite of Connery’s Bond. However, he pulls it off very well. And, oh man, just look at that bulge. I think I just fainted a little.

    •The first scene in the movie shows us how James Bond earns his license to kill. It is shot in black and white and it ropes you in to the movie immediately. From there, we see an unexperienced Bond who has to learn the tricks of being a Double-0 Agent and the responsibility it brings.

    •Holy ****, Eva Green is bangin’! I am a straight woman and I am very, very sure about that, but I would hook up with Vespyr Lynd. Who wouldn’t? She’s smart, she’s sexy, she’s classy as hell and oh my God why wasn’t I blessed with a rack like hers?

    •The World Series of Poker has nothing on this movie. Nothing.

    •It took me awhile to get used to the theme song (You Know My Name by Chris Cornell), but the opening credit sequence is gorgeous. Those graphics are sexy. I love the entire concept of it.

    So there you have my [late] Thanksgiving Day post. I meant to put it up this morning, but WordPress decided to be terrible at life and delete everything instead of saving it as a draft like I asked it to. And then there was food and pie. I love pie… for realz. Have a great weekend, everyone.

    Cowboys & Aliens

    http://willitsuck.wordpress.com/2010/11/27/cowboys-and-aliens/

    Hollywood is in love with alien invasion movies lately. Skyline premiered earlier this month, and the trailer for Battle: Los Angeles is now previewing in theaters. It seems like there’s a veritable invasion movie renaissance happening right now. However, what those two movies have in common – hostile aliens invading modern-day L.A. – is probably the biggest thing that sets it apart from next summer’s big close encounter flick, Cowboys & Aliens, as the name so clearly gives away, these aliens make their run at earth’s domination in the wild, wild west. With a premise that has B-movie written all over it, this Steve Spielberg-produced, Jon Favreau-directed film looks to be an A-list blockbuster of the first kind.

    The trailer opens up with Daniel Craig awaking alone in the desert with no memory, and a strange other-worldly metal bracelet on his left wrist. He proves to be a wanted man, and lawmaker Harrison Ford wants the rights to him after he’s captured by a local posse. All standard practices in any western, oh, but then I forgot about the alien attack. Spaceships come down and start tearing up the frontier town, and you can officially kiss your traditional western goodbye. Ford and Craig team up, Olivia Wilde plays the beautiful girl, and that bracelet on James Bond’s wrist proves to be the only weapon that can stop the unfriendly visitors. So far, so good.

    How this movie has kept such a low profile while in production is beyond me, but from this first look, it looks to be a lot of fun. It’s great to see Daniel Craig team up with Harrison Ford who, aside from the phenomenally disappointing return to the Indiana Jones universe with Crystal Skull, hasn’t been in a legitimate action movie in years. It is going to be incredibly fun to see Ford in a serious action role again, for despite its silly premise and steampunk cues, Cowboys & Aliens takes on a more serious tone. With a feel of the recent War of the Worlds remake (the sights and sounds are very reminiscent), we’re in for a thriller of an alien movie, with one hell of a twist.

    The people you can thank for that tone is Worlds director Spielberg, and Favreau, who after proving he can bring box office gold with Iron Man, has gotten quite the clout as big-time director in Hollywood. It’s clear that as producer, Spielberg’s got his fingerprints all over this, and he’s got quite the track record with alien films, with Worlds and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. But let’s not forget who was responsible for that completely misguided fourth Indian Jones film, and despite Favreau’s recent success, unfortunately we remember the last time he visited space with 2005’s Zathura. Both director’s have hits and misses when it comes to science fiction, but with Spielberg they’ve proved rare, and hopefully Favreau can continue to ride this high.

    So, will it suck?

    No. And I say that as objectively as I can. Yes, I love Steven Spielberg; yes, I’m a huge fan of both Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig; yes, I’m in love with Olivia Wilde, and I’ve been rooting for Favreau since Swingers came out in the 90’s. But viewing this trailer, you’ve got two things going on – you’ve got the Old West-meets-aliens thing going on, and you’ve got a smirk-free, straight-faced take on it. How easy would it have been to be tongue-in-cheek with this one? I mean, remember what happened with Wild Wild West? We praise the person who proposed this movie, and after studio execs had a good chuckle, said “No, I’m serious.” Aside from the great casting choices, the thing that’s making this movie work for me is that fact that Favreau and Spielberg are taking a good idea seriously, no matter how ridiculous the concept may be.

    ————————————————————————————————————————

    What ring? He wore it all for about a second and then it was gone. This relationship is over, it has been over for awhile, since April of 2010, that’s right April, they agreed to part ways back in then, He agreed to buy her a condo in New York. that was part of her settlement. Along with some cash, jewelry and art, the last time they were pictured together was May, 6months ago, I don’t know about you but that sounds like a permanent break. And if he was going to have pics taken with her, it would have happen when the gay rumors hit, right, nothing! There were all sorts of buzz that Daniel and Rachel are together, if this was not true he would not have allowed a friend contact the telegraph and state Daniel and his GF they were no longer together. I think you people are really pathetic , you all thought she was going to turn up in NM, nothing, then you were quite sure she was going to turn up in Sweden, again, nothing,. He has been photographed in several places alone. Like it or not that is his statement, and he is saying it LOUD AND CLEAR. WE ARE DONE.There was a blow up in July, they were trying to remain friends (or she was trying to remain friends) when he found out they she was behind some of the rumors that were floating around the internet, He finally had enough of her and her B U L L S H I T.

    It’s a rule of thumb that when tabloids cite unnamed sources for a showbusiness “exclusive,” most people assume the story isn’t true. Fair enough. The fact is that many of the more disreputable tabloids simply make up their stories and add credibility by adding a quote from a fictional source. Other times, reporters have no choice but to quote unnamed sources because they are often fed the juiciest stories off the record. It is a frustrating fact of life for entertainment journalists that people won’t be quoted for controversial stories for fear of reprisals, blacklisting or being cut out of the loop

    “Daniel Craig and the Future of James Bond”

    http://rushblogg.blogspot.com/2010/11/daniel-craig-and-future-of-james-bond.html

    There has been a great deal of talk about how EON Productions will take the James Bond character in future movies. Many have also speculated on how Daniel Craig will approach the character – especially in the upcoming BOND 23. I have no idea how the Bond character will be treated in future movies, but I do a few things to say about Daniel Craig as Bond.

    First of all, I do not believe that “CASINO ROYALE” and “QUANTUM OF SOLACE” were unique in being the only Bond films that seemed like a slightly realistic spy thriller. Before Craig’s two movies, there was “FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE”, “ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE”, “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY” and “THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS”. We also had movies like “THUNDERBALL” and “OCTOPUSSY” with plots that seemed very probable in the real world (nuclear threats in the name of extortion or/and political manipulation). And there was “LICENSE TO KILL” that was gritty, but seemed more like a revenge story than a spy thriller. But I do believe that “CASINO ROYALE” was one of the best movies in the franchise. I also believe that “QUANTUM OF SOLACE” was an exciting and gritty thriller, although not as well done as “CASINO ROYALE” In fact, I feel that both movies were well-written thrillers with complex and three-dimensional characters.

    As for Daniel Craig, many have criticized his Bond for acting like a professional and experienced agent at the beginning of “CASINO ROYALE”, despite being a novice. I have to point out that in this version of “CASINO ROYALE”, Bond WAS NOT a novice spy at the beginning of the story. He already had experience as an intelligence operative for the Royal Navy and as an agent for MI-6. At the beginning of the movie, he had simply been promoted to the “00 Section”. He had already been serving with MI6 for some time.

    Although I have enjoyed the performances of all six (or should I say eight?) actors who have portrayed Bond, Daniel Craig’s performance has appealed to me a lot stronger than the others. I am not saying that I believe that his Bond is the best. I simply prefer his Bond a lot stronger than I do the others. So far, Craig’s Bond has not been tinged by Connery’s lack of humanity, Lazenby’s inexperienced background, Moore’s cheeky humor, Dalton’s heavy angst factor or Brosnan’s mediocre scripts. This latest manifestation of Bond is a ruthless and athletic man with a sardonic sense of humor, a taste for good living, a penchant for taking chances and allowing his ego to go uncheck. But knowing EON Productions’ reputation for sometimes ******** up a good thing, who knows what will happen?

    I have heard comments that Craig’s Bond had fully become the iconic figure of the last 44 or 45 years by the end of “CASINO ROYALE”. But others have pointed out that the character who had shot Mr. White at the end of the movie had become the same man who had chased Mollaka in Madagascar. I am more inclined to believe the latter. As his next film, “QUANTUM OF SOLACE” seemed to have attest, I believe that Bond’s character had slightly regressed, due to the heartache he had suffered over Vesper’s betrayal and death. Somewhat. After all, Bond did manage to bring down Mr. White without allowing his emotions, ego or trigger finger to get the best of him. He barely managed to keep his thirst for revenge in check. Although his refusal to face his feelings for Vesper formed a cloud over him. Hopefully, EON Productions will allow the audience to see Bond develop beyond the cold-blooded and brutal man that used women to avoid emotional attachments. I hope that by the time Craig shoots his last Bond film, his character will develop into a somewhat mature man who has learned to balance any emotional attachments he may have formed with the ruthless agent he has to be in order to do his job.

    What interests me is why actually Daniel dumped her or never married her and if other woman would be more successful than Satsuki.
    Satsuki has been in relationship with Craig for 6 years+few months and was engaged to him after 4 years and last two years were funny for them.
    i have to laugh when i remember at the video as he was running away from his “fresh fiancé Satsuki” in Panama 2008, how he ignored her in Ukraine or he ignored her look at him at the red carpet during Oscars, thats the most strong thing to see it how their interaction actually work. at MET Ball or as they walked through Manhattan they looked unhappy. but you can expect that they can reunion.

    You got it wrong.
    I thought if other woman will be able to outsmart Satsuki in that point she will be the “succesfully Mrs Craig” and have baby with Daniel.
    Everybody knows that Satsuki is the “good-for-nothing” hard working for years on certain thing: marriage.
    as for Rachel Weisz, I give a damn sh.eet. about her, dont make a Goddess of her because she is not.
    if she is something so its just looking like an ordinary, normal looking woman from Roseberry Street in London. I saw her Mummy and? nothing much special with her. by the way, i remember, she made a movie with her husband and both were disappointed when the movie lost, right?
    Brigitte Bardot from France was more sexy in her young ages and there are many talented actress in Europe with that difference that they are away from Hollywood and away Oscar commitee. Maybe Rachel just knows the right way like Helen Hunt or Meryl Streep who are ones of excellent actresses but they admit they needed to sleep with directors and producers to get a chance in Hollywood. Rachel also mishmashed with important guys.

    He did go to the gay club, that much is true,. but she may have been behind the rest of it, kising the guy in the parking lot. if you will recall, it started on the internet, by some guy in New York and then it blew up from there. someone did contact TMZ and stated that he was gay, right, well I have spoken with a number of people in the industry journalist, and some pr people. no one seem to know about him being gay. I was on a location shoot, and there were a couple of pr people there, they told me that Hugh Jackman was gay and his wife was his beard, when I asked about Daniel, they both said they had not heard that. I also spoke with a an openly gay producer for an entertainment show, when I told him about the rumors about Daniel , he was suprised to hear that, this guy is very active within the gay community, yet he did not know about this. apparently she( the EX) was behind the daily mail rumor that they had gotten married, well that pissed him off. make no mistake there were problems long before that. Things kept piling up, he just got fed up,

    @to all:

    Thanks 257, for setting the record straight. I always had a gut feeling that she was behind the Daily Mail marriage lie. i just cannot believe that she would risk everything with Daniel just to give herself a ‘married’ status and pretend to the world she was married! NOW let’s see,,,,’ if’ she is photo’ed again somewhere, lets see if she is wearing the rings or if she has the integrity (probably not) to take the rings off and stop trying to jerk everyone around and acting like an arrogant a*s..

  259. 259
    to 257 Says:

    She sure did go to a tremendous amount of work to set all of the marriage lies up . Good for Daniel that it all backfired in her face, and very badly too. I guess she has a lot of explaining to do to her friend and family. No wonder she is struggling to try to stay ‘friends’ with Daniel.
    As another poster put it on another website, no wonder it is ‘Paramount to her to stay friends with him” , that is all she has and she pushed him too far and BLEW IT ! It was not enough for the arrogant beeeee-yatch that Daniel gave her everything he could afford to. Just like that Sarah larson chickie and Clooney. He dumped her butt too on the side of the road, just like Daniel did to the escort service.

    yes, the former GF was hurt that the relationship ended, i get that. however, satsuki could have and should have accepted the ending with grace and dignity. if she had would not be “struggling” to remain friends with Daniel. if you are correct that it was her who put those rumors on the net then she has a serious problem. that kind of behavior is just plain childish.

Did he go hidden? Pictures always pop up….and they may have them at the “exclusively us-who-believe-Sats-is-still-in-the-running-for-Mrs-D.Craig” site.

    It seems like his eyes have the ability to absorb color from what he’s wearing. In some pictures his eyes looks almost grey and in others they are so piercing blue that you have to catch your breath after looking at them.

    Jon Favreau’s ‘Cowboys Aliens’ stirs writers’ war

    HollywoodNews.com: The writers of Jon Favreau’s upcoming summer action film “Cowboys & Aliens” are having a shoot-out.

    Turns out titan scribes Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lidelof are getting their names listed along with Scott Mitchell Rosenberg who authored the graphic novel.

    However, the earlier writers on the project want their names listed. The Writers Guild only permits a limited number of names under the scribe credits and eight writers and writing teams have lent their ink to “Cowboys & Aliens” which isn’t unusual for a studio tentpole.

    DreamWorks and Universal are double-teaming on the film and are unspooling it next summer.

    The Hollywood Reporter had the headlines.

    I mostly agree with you. I have also talked to a lot of people: agents, PR, creative executives, producers. Nobody could say with confidence Daniel is gay. Many of them don’t know much about his personal life. A few of them told me he is straight. In contrast, all of them said Hugh is gay, there is no doubt about it. Not even one person said he is not. It is a known fact.

    Recently, however, a few of them told me Daniel is bi. They don’t have real stories to back it up and often link him with Andy Cohen. When I ask about Satsuki they say she could well be a beard hired to cover up for him. They knew very little about her. Even though she is often introduced as a producer, she is not really a real HW producer with name recognition within the industry.

    __________________________________________
    I agree with you.
    Satsuki used wrong tactics how to get Daniel into her red-nailed clutches. So she is a good-for-nothing and now is not able to be at least a married woman at her 34 age. that is reality for her this time.
    I personally think that marriage is not an important thing and when I see there are many divorced people so its better to think better about it. If Daniel and Satsuki are not harmonious gf and bf together so how would they be a husband wife? If a man decides to get marry his gf so for two things as one posters said beautifully: if he is in love or he loves. I would love to see Daniel at least once be happy and happily married and play with baby in a sand-pit or walking through Central Park in NY.
    well, as some posters speculate about his orientation so
    he would marry a man? where then is the Mr.Right for Daniel?
    Aha, so he waits many years for appearing Mr.Righ, not for the green eyed lady? what a pity. So Ahoy all, have a nice day.

    Funny Sam Rockwell Interview!

    Cowboys & Aliens Set Visit

    http://www.superherohype.com/features/articles/110995-cowboys-a-aliens-set-visit

    On August 19, 2010, a group of other online journalists and I visited the set of Cowboys & Aliens. At the time we visited, the cast and crew were shooting at a location called “Plaza Bianca” about an hour north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The property is owned by the Dar al-Islam Mosque and features a canyon of white rock carved over the centuries into a surreal landspace. It’s a location suitable for both cowboys and aliens and several productions have shot there in the past including City Slickers, Young Guns, Wyatt Earp, Earth 2, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, The Missing, and more.

    As we arrived at the set, it at first looked like any other movie set. There were a fleet of trailers, caterers, vans, and dozens of people wandering around with walkie talkies. But as we drove down into the canyon to where the actual filming was taking place, it was very apparent we were on the set of a Western. We immediately saw real Apache Indians dressed in period appropriate attire. There were horses tied to trees and settlers who were dirty, beaten, and bloodied. There were also cowboys with pistols. As we walked around a corner, we saw a massive metallic looking block dubbed the “Alien Tower.” We saw the bottom 30 feet of it, but with the help of CG it would be transformed into an 85 foot tall ship that, when emerging from the ground, would be a 300 foot tall ship. Floating over the prop ship was a large orange balloon that served as an eyeline reference. Yes, this was the first big sign that this film was a true genre-mashup.

    Shortly after arriving on the set, we were escorted to a tent where we were able to watch filming. But here’s the catch – they were filming the very end of the movie. Not only did we have the movie spoiled for us, but we were embargoed from even discussing what we saw being filmed. So I’m fairly limited as to what I can say. We were able to briefly say “Howdy” to a few cast members. We met Keith Carradine (Sheriff Taggart), Ana de la Reguera (Maria), Walton Goggins (Hunt), Paul Dano (Percy), Noah Ringer (Emmett), Brendan Wayne (Deputy Lyle and John Wayne’s grandson), and Sam Rockwell (Doc). While we were discouraged from doing formal interviews with the cast, we were able to briefly chat with the funny and talented Sam Rockwell.

    Q: Did Jon start talking about this script on “Iron Man 2″ or was it just that you two had so much fun working together you wanted to do it again.
    Sam Rockwell: Yeah, we just had a good time. And Bob and Alex have a great track record, obviously. And Daniel was a big part of the decision, I think. And the part sort of turned into something and Jon’s just – we had a great time on “Iron Man” so we really worked well together.

    Q: How awesome is it working with Harrison Ford?
    Rockwell:It’s great. He’s awesome. You know, he’s Indiana Jones.

    Q: Yeah, right. [laughter] I heard.
    Rockwell: Totally, yeah. He’s awesome.

    Q: How did the experience differ, working with Jon on “Iron Man 2″ and then working on this movie? Is there a lot of improvisation?
    Rockwell: Well, it’s a similar – we have a solid script but we improvise within that and we change stuff on the day, but the only obstacle here is obviously that we’re doing a period piece. So it’s not like you could just say anything, you know – you can’t just say, “Ah, Dude, that sucks.” [laughter] I mean, you can’t – you can’t do that because you’re in the Old West, you know.

    We also briefly met Daniel Craig who plays Jake Lonergan. Two things were striking about him. The first was how much he looked like Steve McQueen. He looked very natural in the cowboy attire. The second striking thing about Craig was his blue eyes. Every heterosexual male journalist on the van later commented on their hypnotic power, a point that the females among us thought was quite amusing. Craig told us that he had to learn to ride a horse for this film and ended up being so taken by it that he planned to continue riding after the film stopped shooting. It was realizing a childhood fantasy to play a cowboy in a film in the actual West.

    Then, of course, we ever so briefly met Harrison Ford. Now I’ll be honest, I’m a longtime Ford fan. I’m a major Han Solo and Indiana Jones geek. So it was a genuine treat to see him in person and in full cowboy attire. This was the first Western he’d done since The Frisco Kid in 1979, so when Ford walked up to where we were sitting, I jumped up and went over to shake his hand. As I was shaking his hand, he said, “So how does this work? We treat you nice and you write nice stuff about us?” Now what would you have said? Well, I did what any one of you would have done in the same position. My brain locked up, I said, “Uhhh…”, and that was it. And like you I later thought of a million other things I could have said but didn’t. Ford peeked in the tent, saw us chatting with Bob Orci, then departed. So that was my ‘Harrison Ford moment’ and I was happy for even that. I later asked Orci about what Harrison Ford thought of attending Comic-Con. Orci said they initially had to talk Ford into going, but once he got out on the stage and saw everyone’s warm reception, Ford was genuinely moved by it all. He and the rest of the cast were ultimately glad they went. As we watched Ford shoot scenes throughout the day, he joked with the cast and crew and even made some jokes on the side that I can’t mention due to spoilers. I hope they end up on a gag reel on the DVD. In an unusual move, Ford and Craig were there for all the shooting, even in scenes where you couldn’t see their faces. They repeated the scenes over and over even when they didn’t have a line of dialogue and they seemed to do so quite happily. We were told this was a great set with an energetic, positive cast and it was certainly apparent from what we saw.

    Throughout the day we chatted with director Jon Favreau and producer Roberto ‘Bob’ Orci. But there was one group of cast members that remained strangely absent – the aliens. Even though we watched them shoot the very end moments of the movie, the look of the aliens was off limits. We did see a large alien body under a tarp at one point, but when asked about it later our chaperones denied its existence. The one look we did get was when Favreau brought out a clawed alien arm for us to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over. If the arm alone is any indication, this will be a cool looking alien. Orci gave us a little more information over lunch in which he said they loosely based the aliens on the Babylonian legend of the “Annunaki.” According to legend, the Annunaki are an alien race with a distinct interest in gold.

    As we were departing the set, we got to meet Dart the Dog who plays “Happy” in the movie. The energetic Border collie let us pet him. (Actors don’t usually let you do that on set visits either.) I had seen the dog earlier in the day chase down a lizard during the middle of a scene and eat it. So it was a cool dog. A crew person then came up to us and said, “I’m going to need everyone to move over. Harrison Ford’s coming and he’ll run you over!” We quickly moved to the side. Sure enough, Ford came zipping by us and Dart on a Gator at a high rate of speed, gave his trademark smirk and a wave, and shot past us on the way back to the set.

    Saddle Up and Ride with the Cowboys & Aliens
    We galloped to Santa Fe to meet Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and learn the secrets behind the 2011 tentpole!

    http://www.ugo.com/movies/cowboys-and-aliens-set-visit

    Heading West for Cowboys & Aliens

    It’s the early morning when we saddle up (aka board a bus) to visit the set of Cowboys & Aliens – but it might as well have been high noon.

    We prepare to travel under the blistering sun into the desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico, where shooting on C&A has been going for several weeks. Equipped with a bandana, sunscreen and a borrowed pair of sunglasses that make me look like the out-of-town New Yorker that I am, myself and a wild bunch of gunslingers head to our first Wild West alien invasion.

    Giddyup!

    After an hour drive into the middle of nowhere, our bus pulls into the company lot. Civilization! Or so we thought. Another bus pulls up to take us to the actual set, a hidden cove located down twisty, turny dirt roads. There’s no doubt care is being put into Cowboys & Aliens – hell, they’ve been building these mountain sets for thousands of years!

    We arrive to a sea of trailers and hustling, bustling crew members, all combating long days in the hot sun, make-shift workstations and the potential of flashfloods (apparently there’s been more than one instance where the crew had to wrangle there belongings while the canyon they’re shooting in quickly fills with rain water. Eep!). Was that an alien arm? Yes, yes it was. But no time for that – we’re shuttled into a tent, where our adventure for Cowboys & Aliens really began.

    Six-Shooting the Sh*t with the Cast of Cowboys & Aliens
    The scene they were shooting (top secret – trust me, you don’t want spoilers) involved everyone in the cast, minus the lovely Olivia Wilde (there is no God) and everyone was game to chat. Read: we totally lucked out.

    While we waited for shooting to begin, a dirtied up Keith Carradine moseyed over to our tent to say hello and show off his battle scars. For a Deadwood fan like myself, it was a particular treat to see Wild Bill Hickcock back in a ten-gallon hat and mustache. Carridine plays a sheriff in the film and from what we can tell, he’ll be easily moving up the ranks of badass old people.

    Thanks to the enthusiastic and charmin Jon Favreau, we were then treated to a slew of hellos from the rest of the cast. Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Little Miss Sunshine) who we may have scared with our presence. At the young age of 26, Dano is a serious actor – it makes sense why a group of eager ears wouldn’t be the greatest thing to have on the sidelines. Nonetheless, Dano told us that working with Harrison Ford was something of a dream, having grown up watching his movies. Meeting Ford was a rare case of his own fandom. Glad to know I’m not alone.

    Sam Rockwell plays the local doctor in Cowboys & Aliens and was excited to be reteaming with Favreau (he played bad guy Justin Hammer in Iron Man 2). Rockwell explained that life on the C&W set was a bit more restrained than the loose IM2:

    “We have a solid script but we improvise within that and we change stuff on the day, the obstacle here is obviously that we’re doing a period piece. So it’s not like you could just say anything, you know? You’ve gotta like – you can’t just say, ‘Ah, Dude, that sucks.’ You can’t do that because you’re in the Old West.”

    We kind of assumed playing a doctor meant he’d be burdened with the task of dishing out exposition. Apparently not:

    “No, actually I’ve been lucky in that way, you know. I kind of serve as the Jimmy Stewart, Bill Paxton of the piece [laughs]. I’m sort of sincere, but I have those moments of levity.”

    The greatest revelation? When we suggested that Bill Paxton would be thrilled to hear the comparison, Rockwell revealed that his performance in the excellent Galaxy Quest was mostly lifted from Paxton’s in Aliens. Incredible!

    Daniel Craig was a busy man that day, but had time for a quick greeting. This is when every person on set began to swoon (that’s right, male or female). Craig is a bonafide star – a physical mix of Steve McQueen and Paul Newman who can turn on the badassery when needed. Luckily, he was kind enough to shake our hands and poke fun Favreau and Harrison. All in a day’s work.

    It wasn’t in the books, but eventually, we had our encounter with the legendary Harrison Ford. He’s as rough, gruff and wily in real life as he is on screen. Our quick introduction went something like:

    “So how does this work? I say ‘hello’ and then you guys say you like the movie?”

    The pride of breaking Harrison Ford’s set visit cherry? Unmatchable. We all shook hands while attempting not to withhold the urge to bear hug our hero Han Solo. Later, he would zoom past us in his roadster golf cart, maniacally laughing while we stand in amazement.

    The Cowboys & Aliens Challenge Coin
    We had a long conversation with Jon Favreau about Cowboys & Aliens, but we had a particularly memorable moment when he shared a special insider treat with the group: the official Cowboys & Aliens challenge coin.

    Favreau handed to each of us a thick, gold coin, adorned with pistols on one side (Cowboys!) and an alien spacecraft on the other (Aliens!). The design gives you an idea of what to expect from the alien spacecrafts in the movie.

    Favreau went on to explain the significance behind the challenge coin:

    “In the military – when we would work with the Air Force a lot, on Iron Man and Iron Man 2, we were at Edwards Air Force Base. I would shake hands with people, and I would feel they would stick a coin in my hands, right? It was a challenge coin.

    “The reason they call it challenge coins is, if you don’t have your unit’s coin with you when you’re out drinking, and somebody pulls the coin out at the bar, if anybody in the bar doesn’t have a coin, they have to buy a round for everybody. But, if you challenge everybody and everybody has it, you have to buy the round for everybody. It was also a sign of respect, that they liked the way the crew was, and the way we treated, you know, them, and who were – it was a sign of respect to give a coin. So I had them made up for Iron Man 2. And it became like a tradition. So I had them made up for Cowboys & Aliens also. I made them look a little more old school.”

    Let the games begin.

    Canyons, Deserts and Spaceships
    Looking at the monitor connecting to the production’s camera rig, you get a sense that Cowboys & Aliens will shape up to be a very big movie. And it should be – watch an old school Western and you’ll see a grand scale fortified in wider-than-wide landscape shots and gritty close-ups that speak the world.

    Cowboys & Aliens is a Western, not a spoof of one. The scene we watched on set didn’t have any grandiose special effects. Instead, it had real actors in real costumes acting out real drama. The towns folk and Apache actors alike were stuck in the middle of sweltering heat gathering dust like their clothing was a sand sponge. Dirty. Good dirty.

    While I’m not here to spoil the major plots (the scene we saw happened well towards the latter half of the film, and that just wouldn’t be fair), but if it sounds like C&A is just a bunch of costumed period players standing around talking, I’ll mention that I also saw a spaceship. A practically built space ship. In the middle of New Mexico.

    Dream come true? I don’t think I dreamed that big.

    Cowboys & Aliens, produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Steven Spielberg, hits theaters July 29, 2011.

    Set Visit: Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford on set for ‘Cowboys and Aliens’

    http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured/posts/set-visit-daniel-craig-and-harrison-ford-on-set-for-cowboys-and-aliens

    “Cowboys and Aliens” was shooting a good distance away from Santa Fe. As we sat on the bus for over an hour, parked in a large field and waited for another bus to take us to the set itself, I looked up at the giant desert sky and reflected on other set visits I’d been to, and how often they were not like this one.

    Set visits, can often be very ordinary things. Usually we are ushered in quickly to a sound-stage somewhere to watch a scene over and over again. We are then escorted to another room and the actors are brought in, one by one, to discuss a movie that is currently in the process of being made, so no one is really sure what to make of it yet. Sure, they can talk about what they love in the script, how nice the other actors are, etc. But often times there are still lots of lingering questions: Will this movie be any good? Will it go straight to video?

    “Cowboys and Aliens” will not go straight to video. The film boasts a production team of Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, and Brian Grazer, folks who certainly do not do things by half measures. And all though they weren’t present on the set when we visited, there was a certain confidence and enthusiasm present in everyone we talked to that really stood out in my mind as special and exciting. We may have hit a weird day, but everyone seemed… Happy.

    We rode the second van up to the gorgeous white walls of a large box canyon where the days’ shooting was taking place, and then walked up to where the large scene was being shot. As luck would have it, the scene they had planned on shooting for our set visit was a smaller one with only Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig. It was to take place further up the canyon and was to involve explosives, so we would have been stuck behind a monitor for most of the day. Due to scheduling matters and weather, they were shooting a much larger and more pivotal scene instead that day, and we got to watch it take place right in front of us, with almost every single star from the movie. We are ushered into an open sided tent facing the scene with a large air conditioning fan blowing cool air. Extras and actors alike, all wearing authentic western gear, saddle by us to get to the cool air. We see Keith Carradine, Sam Rockwell, and Anna de la Reguera come and go. Adding to the films credentials as a western, we even see John Wayne’s grandson Brendan Wayne swing by and say hi. I’ve noticed that folks tend to be friendlier when they are shooting on location, especially in a location without cell service. There’s really nothing else to do besides talk to each other, and any issues that one might normally be concerned with are far away, back in the city.

    Now of course I can’t go into what the scene was. I don’t want to ruin the movie for anyone and honestly, I kind of wish I hadn’t seen it myself. But oh, so are the perils of this job! Suffice to say that the scene involved Cowboys, Indians, as well as aliens, and people looking up into the sky.

    Now as someone who has worked on many sets, and has more than once retreated to an art department truck to break down and have a cry when the stress got to be too much, I really couldn’t get over the general good humor of everyone we met. From the actors to the production assistants everyone was cheerful and nice, even the Assistant Director said “please” and “thank you.” Keep in mind as well that all these people had been shooting out in the heat of the desert for over three months. Once even evacuating the set due to a flash flood. They are in it for the long haul.
    A large part of this good mood, can be attributed to director Jon Favreau. The guy is all smiles in his panama hat when he comes to say hi to us as they are setting up a different shot. Right off the bat he gives us the present of a “challenge coin.” In his words:

    “We would work with the Air Force a lot, on “Ironman”, “Ironman II”, we were at Edwards Air Force Base. And I would shake hands with people, and I would feel they would stick a coin in my hands, right? And it was a challenge coin. The reason they call it challenge coins is, if you don’t have your unit coin, or a unit coin with you when you’re out drinking, and somebody pulls out the coin in a bar, if anybody in the bar doesn’t have a coin, they have to buy a round for everybody. But if you challenge everybody and everybody has it, you have to buy the round for everybody. But it was also a sign of respect, it was a sign of respect to give a coin. So I had them made up for “Ironman II”. And it became like a tradition. So I had them made up for “Cowboys and Aliens” also. I made them look a little more old school.”

    He gives us all a large golden coin with two six shooters on one side and an alien spacecraft on the other. It’s kind of the coolest thing in the world. And every single internet journalist there is agape with wonder. He has won us over.

    He then proceeds to completely ruin the movie for everyone present. Every plot twist is revealed and every piece of movie magic is demystified. “I’ve discovered that the only way to keep you guys from leaking stuff is to tell you everything. It’s when I don’t tell you that we get in trouble” he says with a smile. The man is incredibly well versed in film and excited about this project. He went from directing the indie movie “Made” to the mega-hit “Iron Man” franchise in less than ten years. He’s excited about his craft and especially excited about making a new kind of hybrid with “Cowboys and Aliens.”

    The idea is to make a western with aliens in it, as opposed to a sci-fi movie with cowboys in it. When asked about his approach he replies: “You can do anything now. So we’re picking a very narrow interpretation of what an alien invasion means. You know, because it could be “Independence Day”, where it’s all about how big the ship is and how many ships come in, and how many ordnance that you could have fighting them. Or it could be like “Mars Attacks”, or it could be you know – the fifties stuff… So it’s picking what version, and limiting ourselves in a way that we would – that technology used to limit those filmmakers.”

    Favreau is using as many practical effects as he possibly can in the film. Even things that you wouldn’t expect. If you notice in the trailer the invading ships that fly over the town have flashing laser lights. These were actual lights suspended by a crane and a great help for the actors who almost all commented on the fact. He continued.

    “As far as the tone of it, I think what’s nice about the piece that we showed at Comic-Con, (The Teaser trailer, essentially) I think it shows the marriage (of the two genres.) So as a director, my biggest responsibility is to set the right tone. And whether I’m making a Western or a sci-fi movie, I would still have that responsibility. And I think I found the tone that marries the two. And it’s a balancing act, and that’s what makes this movie work.”

    I happened to have a friend working on the set, so every once in a while I would get pulled away from the bunch and be shown cool things like Daniel Craig’s gun and Daniel Craig himself. Dirty and covered with sweat, I asked him how long he’d been out in the stinking desert. “since June, I guess” I commented that it must be pretty hot, but he shook his head. “There are worse jobs, I’m having fun.” Of course I missed Harrison Ford who came over to talk to the group, while I was talking with Craig, but I’m ok with that. I got to see him up close as he almost ran me down with his golf cart. “He will not stop” a friendly PA said hurrying me out of the way.

    All in all I came away with a good feeling about this movie and an ever increasing respect for Mr. Favreau. The guy can talk and he knows his craft. That is,unfortunately, a lot more than you can say about many directors. As I rode back to the hotel I looked at my challenge coin and couldn’t help but get excited about this movie. I guess that was the point, wasn’t it?

    DF, thanks for the Favreau interview article.
    “Q: What movies or eras of Western films did you look to for inspiration? Even without the cowboy get up, Daniel Craig looks like a throwback to the yesteryears of film.
    Jon Favreau: He looks remarkably like Steve McQueen did in the 70′s. It’s interesting, because you think of him as James Bond, but the minute you put him in – you’ll see him in his whole kit, as he calls it – his whole outfit – and he feels like the type of actor that you could cast back in the 60′s or 70′s.”
    Even if we want to meet McQueen, the time machine is not necessary anymore :)

    I think this article is biased. I read much blog impressed by a trailer.
    NO “False with one, false with two” you know.

    In today’s Times, Michael Cieply reports on the strange reaction to the trailer for next summer’s Cowboys & Aliens, which has been unintentionally drawing laughs before screenings of Harry Potter. Universal is concerned, because of the film’s silly title and genre-mixing premise, that audiences are expecting a comedy instead of the joyless mash-up of Unforgiven and Alien that C&A apparently is. So how — apart from the movie’s already very somber trailer — can they better convince us of its “deadly seriousness”? Remix some Inception-style horns into the score? Give Daniel Craig’s character Parkinson’s? Have Mo’Nique play Harrison Ford’s abusive mom? Your suggestions are appreciated, we’re sure.

    Laughter at my screening came with the reveal of the title. Everyone was amused, the laughter wasn’t derisive..

    By ineedm0neydotcom on 11/30/2010 at 11:23am

    I disagree. When I saw HP7 the other night the entire crowd went silent and a good half of the audience clapped after the trailer was over. I think they have a winner on their hands based on that response!.

    I am wondering why there are no photos from the set of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and what is happening inside.
    If they dont improve trailer and poster so Cowboys and Aliens are going to crash at box office because many people dont like the trailer, Ford is too old to attract and Favreau talked in that interview only so confidently : “yah, awesome, great, I got James Bond into my film, also I got Indiana Jones, yeah.”
    Because Spielberg was involved in the movie as a producer so they think it will have definitely success. well, Munich lost, so his name did not help the movie. Dream House is gonna to lose as well.

    back to this again, are you Gina? first off, how do you know that Ford is too old to attract. there are a lot of women of all ages who would disagree with you; they will go to the film just for him. just because you, and others, don’t like the trailer does not mean the film will fail at the box office. the world does not revolve around your opinion here.

    as for Munich, it cost 70 million US to make and it’s made something on the order of 300 million US worldwide. not exactly what i would call a failure. as for Dream House, how do you know it’s not going to be a success. have you seen the finished film? there are photos of the film set of Dragon Tattoo out there. just because they haven’t made it here doesn’t mean anything. it doesn’t mean that the film won’t be completed. and yes, Gina, we will see them in theatres before james Bond 23 comes out.

    “I haven’t thought about it yet. We only just got the news that we’re back on. But ‘there’s many a slip twixt cup and lip’ So I will keep quiet until I get a script and then start writing ideas. I just hope the next one is as good as my favorites, as I think everyone does. And I’m always interested in what Daniel Craig brings to the part.

    MGM will solve problems this month and like I said if there something happened on the set of Dragon Tattoo so Daniel would jump on Bond at once. Peter Morgan left uncompleted script on the desk in EON office so it means producers can use it and let it finish. just wait some weeks.

    The next bondmovie is not expected to be a direct follow-on from Quantum of Solace (2008) and Casino Royale (2006) which the former was a direct sequel to the latter. Producer Barbara Broccoli has said that the series “will go on to other different stories from now on.” However, there still is likely to be the appearance of the QUANTUM organization, but with different villains. Moreover, Broccoli has also hinted at the possibility of a trilogy, which means a connection with Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008), saying that “I think in some way, he will go after the [Quantum] organization. So in that sense, it may become a trilogy, but we haven’t really structured it that way.”

    you’re an idiot.
    Haven’t you noticed yet, that if they want a Novmeber 2011 release they had to start filming in January at latest, and that means the preproduction would have to be in full swing since summer 2010.
    This is not the case, so NO Bond in 2011 FOR SURE!

    If you had payed attention in the production of the last two Bond movies, you would have recognized that there always is a 6 month preproduction stage with scouts looking for locations, doing the paperwork woth owners of locations they want to use etc.
    NOTHING of this has happend for Bond 23, so NO WAY they can go for a 2011 release.

    Hi, DF
    Thanks for the link. I like such article which sparkled with wit! Thanks a lot :)
    “Craig was a tall man who ign he wasn’t a real cowboy sure as s**t fooled us cuz it looked like he could cowboy with the best of ‘em. Man had blue eyes like the clear skies above.”
    “Craig was a tall man” …oh, really? :)
    Well some twitters also mentioned Daniel was BIG. Maybe he continues growing up further…wow.
    to Bianca
    Thanks for the article.
    “And I’m always interested in what Daniel Craig brings to the part.”
    Yeah, I’m always interested to interpret a role in the viewpoint that Daniel is different from us.
    “Bond is soon back.”
    I really hope so. I like to look on the bright side, but we should try to see things from the practical point of view. So we always must be more objective :)

    yes, if Bond 23 were to come out in November 2011 i would be happier as well. but it will not happen. the sooner you accept the reality of this the better off you will be. nothing will happen to stop the filming of Dragon Tattoo; deal with it.

    first off, yes peter morgan left the unfinished script on the desk at EON however they cannot use any of his work with out his written permission and consent. while EON may own James Bond they do not own the words on the script. it’s very complicated legally but essentially if they use any part of it then whoever finishes the script will have to allow Morgan’s name to be appear as co-writer.

    then there’s the locations. as the previous poster say, it takes months to get the necessary permits to film. and no, the fact that it’s James Bond doesn’t give automatic access. in some countries, Eon will have to submit to an environmental assessment which can take weeks. then there’s the cast; Judi Dench like Daniel, is making a film and like Daniel she just cannot leave the set in order to make Bond.

    then there is the financing of the film. the studio may not be able to have the money available before a certain date. which will also make it impossible for Bond to come out November 2011. Now, Gina, please stop your nonsense. you have made so many predictions that have been proved wrong. Bond is coming out November 2012. they will not change their minds to make you happy.

    Kate Winslet to move to London with estranged husband Sam Mendes as he shoots new Bond movie

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1335202/Kate-Winslet-to-London-estranged-husband-Sam-Mendes-shoots-new-Bond-movie.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

    The new James Bond movie will be a family affair for Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes.

    The Oscar-winning film-maker is expected to direct Daniel Craig in the latest 007 adventure some time towards the end of next year, with the production likely to be based, as usual, at Pinewood film studios.
    Kate revealed that their son Joe, seven, and Kate’s daughter Mia, ten, will move to the UK with her for the period of filming.

    ‘Sam is doing the next Bond film, all being well, and we’ll all be in England if that happens. It’s such a massive commitment for him and it’s not fair for him to commute backwards and ­forwards to New York from ­London. It would be impossible. The children will be there with me,’ Kate told me exclusively.

    Kate and Sam separated last year but have remained on as friendly terms as possible, primarily because of the children — and because they still like each other, despite the split.

    I asked Kate if there was a small role for her in the Bond picture, perhaps as a Bond girl? She laughed and shook her head and said: ‘No!’

    However, she did not rule out the possibility of working with Sam again. ‘I can see us working together again — that’s the way it is.

    ‘We’re really good friends and have very good respect for each other. I can see it, but you’d have to ask Sam what he thinks,’ Kate told me.

    Sam and Bond producer Barbara Broccoli have already had many meetings over casting, and Ms Broccoli has visited the play Deathtrap twice to see Simon Russell Beale perform.

    The leading actor is an old friend of Sam’s and they’re keen to work together again.

    But before filming Bond, Sam will direct Kevin Spacey in Richard III at the Old Vic in June, as part of what’s called the Bridge Project.

    It will be the final production of the theatrical partnership between the Old Vic, Neal Street Productions and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

    Kate has one more day of shooting in Chicago on Steven Soderbergh’s film Contagion, where she is part of a team trying to control a virus outbreak.

    The film is a thriller with an ensemble cast that includes Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and Marion Cotillard.
    Kate has done just nine days of filming on Contagion, spread over several weeks.

    However, she laughed at erroneous reports suggesting she was packing up and moving to Chicago for good.

    C’MON HOLLYWOOD: Get Bond 23 Back On-Track!

    http://www.joblo.com/index.php?id=34989

    It’s been two years since the last James Bond film, QUANTUM OF SOLACE came out. If everything were running smoothly at MGM, this holiday season Bond would once again be shooting it out at the multiplex, as the usual course of action for the Bond series is to leave two years between each installment.
    But alas, it’s been over two years and a new Bond isn’t even close to going into production. Now, this isn’t the first time there’s been a delay between Bonds. After THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN flopped, it took three years for THE SPY WHO LOVED ME to hit the silver screen, as script problems and the departure of co-producer Harry Saltzman ended up delaying the film. Between LICENSE TO KILL, and GOLDENEYE, we went six whole years without a Bond due to legal troubles, and many thought that was the end of the greatest action hero of all time. Luckily it wasn’t, and in the guise of Pierce Brosnan, 007 was back sipping Vodka Martini’s (shaken, not stirred of course), shooting it out with baddies, and getting it on with Euro-babes by the fall of 1995.

    Brosnan’s films typically hit theaters according to the two-year rule, with the only exception being DIE ANOTHER DAY, as it was delayed a year to take advantage of the fortieth anniversary of DR.NO (this ploy obviously worked, as DIE ANOTHER DAY remains the highest grossing domestic Bond film- despite its undeniable suckitude). We had another lengthy delay once Pierce Brosnan was dropped (or retired depending on who you ask), and it took four years of screen-tests and re-writes to bring us CASINO ROYALE.

    Judging from the finished film, it’s a good thing they took as much time as they did, as it was easily the best Bond film since at least GOLDENEYE. Once that became a smash hit, the series was once again back on track and QUANTUM OF SOALCE hit theaters exactly two years later. While many (including myself) found QUANTUM OF SOLACE to be underwhelming compared to ROYALE, it was nevertheless another smash it, raking in $586 million worldwide.
    As the series is obviously as popular as ever, you’d think another installment would be a no-brainer. Sure enough, earlier this year work actually began in a rather promising fashion with Peter Morgan (FROST/NIXON, HEREAFTER) being hired to write the script, and Sam Mendes (AMERICAN BEAUTY, ROAD TO PERDITION) attached to direct.

    But then, Bond met his most tyrannical, evil foe- bankers!

    By now, everyone knows about MGM (the studio behind Bond) and their financial troubles, and I’m not going to elaborate on it here- for the sole reason that I can barely understand what’s going on myself. As it stands, MGM is bankrupt, and Bond isn’t the only franchise affected. THE HOBBIT also went on hiatus (but is now seemingly back on track), and already wrapped films like RED DAWN, and Joss Whedon’s CABIN IN THE WOODS are sitting on the shelf as the studio hasn’t got the capital to release them.

    My issue is this. MGM should have waited until the next Bond was off the ground before they started sinking money into THE HOBBIT or anything else. While HOBBIT will certainly be a smash, it’s also going to be damn costly. While the Bond’s now cost between 150-200 Million a film, that’s still cheaper than THE HOBBIT will end up being. With Bond being as huge as it is, they’re all but guaranteed to make the money back- so that should have been their priority rather than sending a big budget film like RED DAWN into production. Another nail in Bond 23′s coffin was likely HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, which to date is the last film MGM’s gotten into theaters. While the budget was modest, they spent big money on the marketing campaign in order to turn it into another HANGOVER. While the film did fairly well, it was not a huge money-maker, and it looks like it all but broke the back of the already cash strapped studio.
    At the very least, the MGM situation seems to finally be resolving itself somewhat, but there are other problems. The biggest problem is that Daniel Craig, after two massive Bond blockbusters is now (deservedly so) a megastar and a busy guy. This year, he’s starring in both COWBOYS & ALIENS, and THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, both of which will likely become franchises. In order to get the next Bond in theaters before 2014, they’ll have to act fast and get it in production at some point next year as Craig’s going to get busier and busier if one (or both) of those films are successful enough to warrant a follow-up. Luckily, Craig seems open to returning (and is perhaps even contractually obliged), but lately I’ve had a feeling in my gut that we may have seen the last of Craig as Bond. Hopefully I’m wrong.

    Whoever ends up with their hands on the franchise after the MGM situation is cleared up (fingers crossed for Sony, which did a great job as a co-producer on the last two) needs to get a new Bond going as their first order of business. Luckily, Bond is still in the hands of the Broccoli family, and my hope is that they’ve continued working on the script throughout the delays to assure a new Bond will be in production before long. At the very least, we need AT LEAST one more Bond film with Daniel Craig to close out his storyline, before yet another re-boot (God forbid). The fans that have been following the franchise for almost fifty years deserve it. It makes me very sad to note that 2012 with mark the fiftieth anniversary of the series, and that year likely WON’T be marked by a new Bond film.

    Next James Bond Skedded For Nov. 2012?

    http://www.deadline.com/2010/12/is-next-james-bond-skedded-for-nov-2012/

    There’s still no official word. But I’m hearing from 007 insiders that production should start on the next James Bond movie — “Bond 23″ — towards the end of next year for release November 2012. Makes sense since MGM’s future is now sorting itself out what with the pre-packaged bankruptcy getting approval, and Spyglass taking over studio filmmaking, and star Daniel Craig finishing his film commitments. The actor began work on the Hollywood remake of the Swedish original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo as soon as he completed shooting Cowboys and Aliens in a nifty bit of schedue coordination between Dragon Tattoo-maker Sony Pictures Entertainment, DreamWorks partners Stacey Snider and Steven Spielberg, and James Bond rights holders Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson. Adding to the mix is that yet another James Bond videogame which had been held up because of the uncertainty recently got the go-ahead. Meanwhile, the latest 007 vidgame is for sale this Christmas.

    It’s still not clear who will distribute the next bond. Deadline’s Mike Fleming reported last month that, if MGM isn’t a distributor, the next installment of James Bond will be a jump ball. Expect Sony (which distributed Casino Royale) to battle it out with Warner Bros and Fox, but Paramount could emerge in the thick of it because of its close relationship with Spyglass over the film reboot of Star Trek and sequel.

    The British newspapers also indicate Bond 23 may now be casting. Today’s Daily Mail reports that 007 producer Barbara Broccoli has been to see actor Russell Beale twice in his current West End play Deathtrap. Also, the Shakespearean actor is starring as King Lear for Bond 23 director Sam Mendes in a National Theatre production in 2012. And he’s exec producing Shakespeare’s History Plays for a new BBC TV season that Mendes is also overseeing. Beale told UK newspaper The Independent earlier this year that he’d already dropped a hint to Mendes that “Every actor wants to be in Bond. I’d love to be a baddie.”

    Ever since she was picked to play Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s upcoming adapatation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara has given the press the silent treatment, granting no interviews or quotes — a play straight out of the Salander handbook.

    But to celebrate her inclusion in EW‘s Entertainers of the Year issue — alongside her Social Network cast-mates — Mara emailed EW her very first dispatch from the Dragon Tattoo set in Stockholm, Sweden, poking fun at Fincher’s well-known penchant for doing dozens of takes.

    “It’s -9 degrees Celsius. 37 takes down, only about 42 more to go,” she writes. “Every time he says, ‘Okay, last one,’ I fall for it. Every. Single. Time. If only I could get this damn shrug right, then maybe I could go inside and my nipple ring would have time to thaw out…”

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 21, 2011.

    Like I said, I still think they should come with Bond earlier.
    ……..
    “With both the “Batman” and “Spider-Man” franchises duking it out at the 2012 summer box-office, there is little chance of Bond 23 being pulled forward. The release schedule around the holiday season in 2012 is light, with the only two major releases (“Monsters, Inc. 2″ and “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II”) penciled in for November 2012.”

    If Daniel finishes Dragon Tattoo until spring in next year so he would jump on Bond, on condition if writers finish their uncompleted script.
    It is up to Babs Broccolli if she will want to hurry up after that all she had to postpone shooting Bond in the summer this year. I would say she cannot already wait more time.
    2011 is a perfect year for Bond and perfect time to make money, Daniel also plays in Dragon Tattoo, so it would be a double success, and profit for him.

    just wait how MGM solves it with Bond and maybe they will surprise us again and again like before. Situation in MGM was different every day, all expected the worse things for MGM and they also expected Bond to appear in 2014 but it turned to the way I preddicted, MGM still lives and stands on its own feet with help of new financial partners and now I have to see what happens to Bond, I dont think the release in 2012 for Bond is the final say, it really depends on them and how they decide. Hobbit starts first and its obvious Bond follows him.

  356. 356
    2012 Says:

    is the perfect year, 50th annivesary.
    And for a 2011 release is way too late to start right now.
    QoS started filming in January for a November release and it turned out to be a little mess and Forster said he was in a hurry to cut it and that showed.
    They won’t make that mistake again and I happily wait to get another gem like Casino Royal.

    @2012:
    you are right, I like what you just said.
    But there is a porblem, I hinted Babs Broccoli will not want to wait more time as she postponed 23.Bond two times, it was in 2009 and this year.
    Now when MGM solves it so they have to make money back and they will probably hurry and when Babs gets money from new investors for Bond budget so you cannot expect her to stay at home and be lazy,
    I dont believe she will be iddle and Daniel too said he want to do Bond asap.
    If 2011 or 2012 – it depends on EON, MGM and new distributor. They also have to look at other films which will compete against Bond for grabbing each dollar. 2012 is not a good year for Bond for this reason that there will be other blockbusters, for example Batman is the record man in grabbing the money, he earned fantastic money and got a huge success, then Twillight come in the summer and they are in theaters for six months so they can still compete against Bond.

    I vote for 2011 that is better for Bond because of money but I agree with you, if they will hurry and make Bond next year so they hardly will produce a good bondmovie. Movies made in hurry never are good.

  359. 359
    2012 Says:

    they will no go for 2011, no way.
    And believe me Barbara is not sitting at home, she has enough to do beside Bond.
    And try thinking before writing: Twilight in summer will be NO competion for Bond. This is ridiculous. Even a blockbuster movie is no serious competitor after 6 weeks in the theater.

    If they want to be successful with the next Bond so they need a damn very good author who created the bondmovie evoking atmosphere of CR but more dangerous, risky, elegant and brilliant. It would be more thrilling version of CR.
    With the brilliant script they would made the bondmovie fastly but where is the author? If Babs found some actors for the next Bond, so she should look for some brilliant writer, maybe female writer who would co-operate with Purvis and Wade.

  361. 361
    Fio Says:

    I don’t know whether he is suitable for the Bond villain. But Babs came in contact with Simon Russell Beale. Doesn’t it mean that an outline of Bond23 was almost decided? Yeah, I know the script has not been completed yet tho…

    Stage Actor Simon Russell Beale Rumored For A Role In Bond 23

    http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Stage-Actor-Simon-Russell-Beale-Rumored-For-A-Role-In-Bond-23-22029.html

    With things finally starting to look good for the next James Bond film, it’s only natural that the rumor mill will start up once again. This past week has seen both composer David Arnold and Kate Winslet confirm that the project will be getting into pre-production shortly and will start filming at the end of next year. Because of the long hiatus, however, we still have very little clue about the casting of the film. Daniel Craig is all but 100% set to return and we can expect that Judi Dench, Jeffrey Wright and others will be returning as their characters from Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. But what about the rest of the cast? Well, let the ride begin.

    The British newspaper The Daily Mail reports that the production is beginning to take an interest in actor Simon Russell Beale for a role in the still untitled Bond sequel. The story claims that producer Barbara Broccoli has gone to see the stage actor twice in the West End production of Deathtrap and, making things even more interesting, Russell Beale will be starring as King Lear in director Sam Mendes’ production of the Shakespeare play that is scheduled to play the National Theatre in 2012. Also worth noting is that the actor told The Independent back in January that he has talked to Mendes about a possible role in the spy film, saying “Every actor wants to be in Bond. I’d love to be a baddie.” Deadline also says that the project may be looking at a November 2012 release date, sourcing unnamed “007 insiders,” though it’s unknown who will distribute the film.

    Given the reliability of British newspapers it is entirely possible that this is all what the French call “bullshit.” Barbara Broccoli may just enjoy Deathtrap and as we’ve seen many times before, just because an actor and a director work together doesn’t mean that they are attached at the hip (see here, here, and here for reference). That said, Simon Russell Beale is a phenomenal actor that would undoubtedly knock any role out of the park, particularly as the villain. This is one of those cases where my fingers are crossed that a rumor is true.

    Bianca Says:

    they will no go for 2011, no way.
    _________________________________
    Then, you can be pretty surprised if they really decide for 2011.
    If they will do so, it will be a surprising slap in the face for fans and doubters in the film industry who expected Bond to be iced for years.

    All thought (except me) that MGM will crash down the hill and be sold in auction and there will be dead Bond for years and now all are glad and thank in other forums it did positively for Bond, MGM is okay soon and brings Bond and other films. we have the whole December and January to learn when the release will be, if in 2011 or 2012. Jeffrey Wright, David Arnold, Kate spoke about 23.Bond, now I would love Daniel to speak too. If he will say again this: as quickly as possible. wink wink at him.

  363. 363
    Bianca Says:

    Interestingly, when writer Morgan departed so they hired another writer, Patrick Marber who joined the Bond team in the spring.
    New writer surely created outline and wrote first dialogues in his script. Like Morgan started on outline and then left.

  364. 364
    Bianca Says:

    Peter Morgan said he completed his work on the Bond 23 draft between July and October last year, until his work was put on hold due to the MGM debacle.

    In recent months, Daniel Craig has said he expects filming to start in late 2010, indicating a tentative release window of late 2011. Dame Judi Dench has been told to hold her diary for early 2011 to film her scenes as MI6 chief M.
    ___________________________________________
    Just note.
    So, Morgan was hired to work on a script in July and Daniel expected filming in December, so Morgan had a half year for writing. Right?
    So they are able to work fast and in a hurry, hmmmm, Machers!
    If Marber, Purvis and Wade were not iddle but found some version of the story, prepapred at least outline and first dialogues so they would make a more massive job.

  365. 365
    Bianca Says:

    I am not sure if Bond comes in 2011 or 2012 but I am sure with one thing what Daniel will do as he starts to work on Bond again:
    he will do this: “Satsuki! Come back, we have to make premiers!”
    Crying Satsuki will do this: ” Oh yes, Daniel! I I do all what you wish!” (she put a sardonic smile).

    DF–thx! awesome pic. it looks as if he was “caught” in a “real” moment.. It is amazing to me that he did this movie and has it in his legacy so that his mind can go back there and hopefully remind him of what can happen to fame-ridden people, not only actors too.he really could become that character if he loses his balance and I hope he has the weeping picture somewhere important in his house, in his foyer, or the loo, or hallway into the pool?….or Ms. Woods’ show collection. Are there times where “we” know he isn’t acting? hhhmmm…maybe his mum/dad know? maybe.

    Thx Fio—and she EMAILED that to EW? yes, she discusses her nip ring? I guess she can because her body won’t be hers during this next 3 years…so, what the f**k, I would say. But damnnn, I would have Dan blow on those for me to keep my nips warm!!!!!!!!!!!!! and how do we know she really emailed them? only them? and how did they get her email? strange.
    DFCity—yea, I watched all those with my mum–she knew which shows to watch!!!! wow—Sammy Davis…I forgot that one…he was a good guy in that episode…funny. .

    Dan was and is now an midwestern cowboy,,,,why would he say he had to “learn how to ride”….does he mean, more prolific riding or show riding? hhmmm.

    Yes! Wish I had Dan to keep me warm here, too!

    “and hopefully remind him of what can happen to fame-ridden people, not only actors too”

    Absolutely. Fame and money can really mess with your head if you don’t have people who help you keeping your feet firmly on the ground.

    Still catching up with all the links, but the ‘c’ comment was funny. While we all were so polite and talked about ‘gun positioning’, this poster said it straight out *grin*

    Ohhhhhh Daniel
    So I’m having this conversation with friends about the trend toward Cowboy books in romance writing. One writer we know actually writes “Cowboy Kink”. I wasn’t getting. I mean I went through my “Urban Cowboy” phase. I have asked more than one guy “Are you a “REAL” Cowboy” I wanted to dance to “Can I Have This Dance” at my wedding . But that phase passed just as it did for the rest of the world I thought.

    Then I start writing and I am looking at these sites that sell romance novels and the phase is apparently back. So this was my state of mind when I go see the Deathly Hollows. I am watching the previews when who should appear on the screen in full glorious color, Daniel Craig in Cowboys and Aliens. Let me tell you I do not “Squeee” I did however squeal in delight, much to my sixteen year old son’s chagrin. So we have Daniel and Harrison Ford in Western wear. Ohhhh My. So Daniel as Cowboy and /or Alien, I get the cowboy craze. Okay so he is dirty but would you really mind. It also gives one the opportunity to think of him bathing…..ohhhh my.

    So watch out for Cowboys and Aliens not in the theaters until next July but something to look forward to then.

    And just to wrap they day up let’s throw in a shirtless pic. Found one I haven’t posted yet. Enjoy.

    Daniel and Harrison…you know, James Bond has fought against Indiana Jones. IMO his mustache was awful, but his action scenes always have been amazing. I can feel pain, I can feel fear, I get the suspense and danger from working every piece of action and the character’s reactions. He is able to make beats that create a rhythm for the fight. His rhythm builds mood and supports tension. Those things make for a riveting scene :)

    Ah…that’s SHOW BIZ! But strictly speaking, It is not even a leak. MGM had already announced it a month ago!

    Movie News: James Bond 007 new movie release date leaked to boost video game sales?
    Movie News!

    James Bond 007 movie fans are getting psyched after a movie news leak announcement [Dec. 4, 2010] that there is an anticipated new movie release date for the next installment of the spy thriller action adventure film has been decided for 2012. The insider announcement from Deadline.com shared the following details about the next James Bond film just in time to help boost holiday video game sales.

    Deadline London, an online gossip arts and entertainment news site that claims to have an insider track on the spy thriller movie series writes:

    There’s still no official word. But I’m hearing from 007 insiders that production should start on the next James Bond movie — “Bond 23″ — towards the end of next year for release November 2012. Makes sense since MGM’s future is now sorting itself out what with the pre-packaged bankruptcy getting approval, and Spyglass taking over studio filmmaking, and star Daniel Craig finishing his film commitments.
    The site reveals, “The actor began work on the Hollywood remake of the Swedish original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo as soon as he completed shooting Cowboys and Aliens in a nifty bit of schedule coordination between two studios and James Bond rights holders Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson.

    They go on to say:

    Adding to the mix is that yet another James Bond videogame which had been held up because of the uncertainty recently got the go-ahead. Meanwhile, the latest 007 vidgame is for sale this Christmas.
    James Bond movie fans are some of the most loyal movie series watchers in the industry. As such, it is already assumed in advance than any new movie put out that promotes the adventures of the fictional character British spy and his latest exotic car will be a Blockbuster hit.

    Knowing a hot new movie with ultra sexy and fit celebrity Daniel Craig will come out in the fall gives theater goers one great action adventure flick to plan to see with visiting relatives just in for the Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays and a warm place to look forward to spending a cold afternoon or evening.

    This week, Target is featuring the video game Golden Eye 007 for the Nintendo Wii on sale and store employees say it has been a popular holiday gift item.

    The video game was first released back in 1997 as a first person shooter game and most movie fans bought it to play on their Play Station or PS2.

    Amazon.com reports the game series for all game station variations has been a top seller ever since, and amused many generations with its graphics and Bond theme. As such, the new 2010 version of Golden Eye is expected to continue to make holiday news for the video game industry as parents buy games for themselves, teen children, and due to the historical nature of the James Bond saga the game might even make it into Santa’s red bag to show up as a surprise gift at Christmas time for tech savvy grandparents.

    “And what of Beck’s grandad, Joe? It was an inspired piece of rhetoric on Beckham’s part to invoke the spirit of his grandfather – even if it inadvertently implied that his old man did bugger all to help him with his football. Beck’s time in Hollywood has not been wasted; on the strength of this screen test, he could give Daniel Craig a run for his money when the next Bond casting comes around.”

    Hope you know that Daniel initially turned down a part of Blomkvist and also initially turned down the role of 007. Huh?
    Interestingly, with no hesitation he accepted FOAF and Dream House.

    Now look at him how he changed his mind: “[on first hearing he had the role of James Bond) When [Bond producer Barbara Broccoli] rang me to tell me I’d got the part, I was buying dishwashing tablets in Whole Foods. I promptly dropped them and went and bought a bottle of vodka!”

    [On the delayed sequel to Quantum of Solace (2008)] “The new Bond movie is on hold but I am champing at the bit to get going on it as quickly as possible. I love playing Bond – I don’t want to be away from it for too long.”

    First, today he refuses it and tomorrow loves it, hypocrite…

  381. 381
    to Gina Says:

    he didn’t say “yes” to Bond at the first approach and he has explained it a billion times…if they hadn’t changed the whole appearance of the series, if it wouldn’t have been the very start of double O, he would not have taken over. It was the new interpretation, the lack of the cheesy and silly one liners, the serious touch that attracted Daniel to the role.
    That’s not “hypocrite”, that just showes a real affection to the role and interpretation of Fleming’s character.

    Bond 23 Going Into Production Summer 2011?

    While reporting on the fact that a movie version of The Hunger Games trilogy of novels is gearing up for production, Deadline.com notes that original director Sam Mendes has dropped out of the production and the reason is that he’s clearing his slate for Bond 23.
    Writes Deadline, “Mendes bowed out of contention last Friday, and I’m told it was because the MGM picture is clearing up and it looks like production on 007 could begin by late summer or early fall, 2011 with Mendes at the helm and Daniel Craig back in the Aston Martin.”

    That should be something of a relief to 007 fans and another sign of how crowded summer 2012 is really getting to be (with, among many others, Star Trek 2 and The Avengers coming out during that period as well).

  383. 383
    to Gina Says:

    it says late summer / early fall 2011, that’s just the way it has been before with most of the Bond movies…..they start end of 2011 with actual FILMING to get ready for a late 2012 release.

    Next James Bond film to be set in WikiLeaks bunker

    http://www.deadseriousnews.com/?p=642

    After PayPal shut down their account, WikiLeaks has struck a deal with the producers of the next James Bond film said to be worth in excess of $1 million.
    Unable to collect much needed donations when PayPal closed their account, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was approached by a representative of the James Bond franchise. The Cold War era bunker inside a Swedish mountain is said to be the “perfect location for a James Bond movie.” Daniel Craig, who will be playing James Bond again, is said to have been personally moved by the role WikiLeaks played in the pardon of Percy Cummings and was “absolutely devastated” by PayPal’s decision.

    Julian Assange has agreed to a small role in the new film for an additional $250,000. Anna Chapman, the Russian business woman who was deported to her home country from the U.S. for spying, is also up for a small role. Chapman is currently working on a pornographic biography of Mata Hari in which she is in the starring role.

    Yeah, you’re right, Daniel also is eager to play Bond, so he is trying to maintain several works at the same time. I really LOVE his Bond, and so I believe that TGWTDT becomes his representative work either :)
    If I remember rightly, you must have been pleased with Daniel playing Blomkvist. But when Rooney was cast in the role of Lisbeth, you changed your mind…right?
    Hi, Mendel
    “some people blame the BBC for ruining England’s chances by broadcasting it before the vote”
    Gee, it’s barking up the wrong tree that they blame the BBC on some pretext or other :(
    We are sick and tired of FIFA corruption all the time. We know their deal always reeks of corruption. Beckenbauer and Platini really love football, but I think those rumors don’t pass away even if they become Chairman of FIFA. There are indeed a lot of deep-rooted problems.

    Yeah! Daniel has such the beautiful and firm EROTIC muscles. *droll* I always have a good supply of tissues in my pockets! lol

At least Assssanger can go “down under” to his place of birth—maybe the dingos will care for him. Maybe Huge can play a part in Dan’s film for the Asssanger!!! wow.

    Anyway—Go Dan!!! He will be going from snow to snow!! yyyyyyyeeeee haw! Has anyone interviewed him yet for any of his movies? No. So when the premeires come out, that is when he does the talking for all the projects?? I have so many questions!! Why can’t he just blog, twitter, or send emails like all celebrities. oh, yeah. not into that. He must have to “get it all out, what’s in his head”. I will interview him while all the moments are still fresh. I just need a journalist job. I would love to write for the deadserious site!!!

Today Toronto is -5 degrees C with light snow, London is -3 degrees C with sun, and Stockholm is -2 degrees C with clouds. That is what the internet tells me, don’t get mad at me if you live in those places and it is off. Toronto is the best place in Canada for him, as it does not alway get too cold with too much snow, but then it could change in a minute. Heavens forbit that Daniel would blog or twitter. Not something he does. He may email people but I don’t know about that. He has not emailed me yet. Come on Dan, waiting to hear from you.

    ——————————————————–
    it was simple to understand. he initially turned down 007 and Blomkvist and then changed his mind. he almost missed his the most important roles, that is what I wanted to say.
    like I said before, interestingly he “with no hesitation” accepted FOAF Invasion, Dream House. So… it shows he says yes to bad materials like Dream House and almost said no to better projects like 007 or Blomkvist. I try to find out why he is accepting bad materials and sometimes refuses better projects. The only explanation came from him and it was like he wants to make a smaller movie after finishing a bigger movie and get harmony of it but it still does not explain his choices, but of course, like other actors he does bad and good movies.

    I was surprised when he initially refused Blomkvist but it was revealed why he did it. It was at that time when he found himself in tenuous situation because of Bond and waited for answer if they start Bond or not. They postponed Bond and he took Blomkvist.

    as for Rooney, there did not happen any change in my opinion or something like that. I tell you how it was exactly: when the girls hunted a role of Salander, so I commented all girls of the audition and I said about Rooney she would win the role. But it didnt mean I agreed with her winning, ok? then it comes to me suspicious she is silent and there are no photos from Dragon Tattoo set. not good sign.

    The game behind the “Millennium” revealed
    An old Lisbeth Salander.
    Limited release of the Swedish film.
    Lower age limit.
    Three requirements that Sony stood for the Hollywood version of “Millennium”.

    18 people in a hotel for three days in January in New York.

    It was they who got avslutna the protracted negotiations on the Hollywood remake of “Men Who Hate Women”.

    During the meeting industry Movie Convention 10 in Piteå other day told Soren Staermose on Yellow Bird, producer of the Swedish “Millennium”-films, and frankly for the first time the entire history of the game behind the scenes when the Swedish film was American.

    - We had many offers from around Europe, such as Luc Besson’s company Euro Corp. Several large directors were interested. But we got cocky. Since books are only sold and sold, we thought the time was with us, not against. So we chose Hollywood Way, says Staermose.

    - We wanted to make a great, great movie. There is much in the book that is hard shot, such as flashbacks in the 1960s and environments throughout the world. We were curious about what would happen if we got into a really big budget.

    Among the Hollywood Giants as early an interest in the film were Jerry Bruckheimer (“Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Top Gun”) and Dino De Laurentiis (“King Kong”, “Blue Velvet”).

    - But when they heard what we were calling for the rights they said “He he, forget it.” Then came (producer) Scott Rudin in, he had been instructed to watch the movie for several studios, including Sony.

    According Staermose was partly chance to thank that it was just Sony that tackled the project.

    - They had booked a release date for a feature film, the new “Spider-Man” movie, in December 2011. When it was created by a gap. It was really nice, and very unusual, to be let in the door.

    Another coincidence, Sony head Michael Lynton, who sits in the Swedish media company Modern Times’s board, to visit Stockholm in the middle of the Millennium hysteria.

    - All posters around town aroused his curiosity, he read the book – and became obsessed.

    But a final agreement with Sony sat deep. In January this year, there was still no contract. This was solved with a summit in New York.

    - It was Yellow Bird, Stieg Larsson’s family, the publishing house Norstedts and Sony. Altogether we were 18 people in the room which the majority were lawyers. For three days we trimmed out all the legal issues. It was an incredible hassle.

    Among the major contentious issues were Lisbeth Salander. Sony wanted her to be played by an older actress.

    - It’s because they wanted a big star in the role, and they are often a bit older, otherwise they have not had time to become stars. But we managed to agree there too.

    Now is the recording in full swing, with the relatively untested Rooney Mara and Bond actor Daniel Craig in the lead roles. Soren Staermose and Yellow Bird is co-producers, but in a much more reserved role than in the Swedish film.

    - We see the dailies and have some comments on the script sometimes. It’s a luxury problem, we have all the fun and avoid the pains.

    When the TT spectra to ask further questions after Soren Staermoses lecture he declines politely but firmly.

    - I’m afraid I already said too much. Everything is still very secret. They get mad if I say another word.

    Here are some of the major points of contention in the “Millennium” negotiations, with comments by Soren Staermose:

    + The American film’s age

    - We demanded that the film would be “R-rated” (no children under 17 without an adult). I think this is the first time Sony makes a big bet that is not permitted from 13 years.

    + Movie Length

    - Sony did not make it longer than 90 to 100 minutes, but we argued that it was impossible to tell the story of this length and had director David Fincher with us. We got our own way.

    + Legal disputes between Stieg Larsson’s partner Eva Gabrielsson and his father and brother:

    - There was a large American nervousness around Eva Gabrielsson. She was much in the newspapers there, and Sony was afraid that the dispute would have a project to stop. Everything was already settled under Swedish law, but they were still worried.

    + Fear of the Swedish version would “kill” the U.S.:

    - Sony wanted to limit the display of the Swedish film to the first Sweden, then Scandinavia, and finally Europe. But in the end, we agree there too.

    ROGER MICHELL: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

    http://thehollywoodinterview.blogspot.com/2010/12/roger-michell-hollywood-flashback.html

    (extract)

    Daniel Craig had to be many things at once in the film. How did you help him develop his performance?

    Well, we rehearsed the film for a couple of weeks before shooting. But he had a very instant, instinctive understanding of his character. You’re very perceptive to say that he had to be lots of things, because he had to be the healer, the friend, the lover, the generous person, and, at the same time, he also had to be the bad man, the selfish man, the addict, the crazy, the man without control, the loser. And he has this great ability as an actor to play two things at once. He plays sweet and kind and gentle with his face, but with his eyes he plays, “Get me out of here, I’m going crazy.” And it’s a good tension to have as an actor.

    When shooting the love scenes between Anne and Daniel, did you do a lot of talking beforehand or did you kind of just let them go with it?

    We did a lot of talking. I think with any love scene, I find it much better to talk it all out with the actors way in advance of shooting: Where the camera is going to be. Who is going to be doing what to whom with which bit of their body. What the shot list is. What the story of the scene is. It’s only with that kind of rigorous pragmatism that you can overcome their nerves about it. I think the worst thing you can say to an actor is, “There’s a bed. You go over there and do your think. We’ll kind of be over here somewhere with a camera.” I think that’s truly scary. I think by really nailing it down, so to speak, you can really liberate them to feel confident and free to pretend they’re having sex. And I think all good sex scenes have lots of story. These scenes [in The Mother] are very particular. It’s the story of a man whose primary aim is to give sexual pleasure to a much older woman without necessarily having a great time himself. That makes the scenes interesting to shoot and worth putting in the film.

    ‘Girl with Dragon Tattoo’ Update: Rooney Mara Teases Nipple Ring; 79 Fincher Takes
    http://blog.moviefone.com/2010/12/06/girl-with-dragon-tattoo-rooney-mara-nipple-ring/
    “There you have it. The famously obsessive and meticulous Fincher is up to his usual painful filmmaking techniques (it’s been reported that the opening scene of ‘The Social Network’, which also featured Mara, was filmed utilizing upwards of 90 takes) and Ms. Mara has a nipple ring … that may or may not eventually become one of the more talked-about on-screen character accessories of 2011.”
    I heard David Fincher is a perfectionist. Maybe David Fincher appreciates Rooney’s talent.

    Snow Problem Sends Jim Sheridan’s ‘Dream House’ to Reshoots
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/snow-problem-sends-jim-sheridans-57120

    “We went to Toronto in January and it didn’t snow one day that month. And the entire movie is set in a snow storm.”

    WHISTLER, British Columbia — Irish director Jim Sheridan is looking wistfully out of a hotel window in Whistler, B.C. as falling snow blankets the picturesque Canadian ski resort.

    Sheridan is conducting a Canadian Film Center screenwriting workshop here after the fluffly white stuff, or more precisely, the lack thereof, last January cursed the original shoot in Toronto for his psychological thriller Dream House, the Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz-starrer set for reshootsin March 2011.

    “We went to Toronto in January and it didn’t snow one day that month. And the entire movie is set in a snow storm,” he explained.

    Even worse, in Connecticut, where the supernatural thriller for Universal Pictures is set, it snowed heavily from January to March last winter, Sheridan recalled.

    The additional footage — mostly snowy footprints and shots out of car windows — was to be shot in Toronto this week.

    But the reshoots have now been postponed to March after Craig couldn’t get away from the set of David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in Sweden at the same time that Weisz was free from the London set of Terence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea.

    And Dream House co-star Naomi Watts is in Thailand top-lining the tsunami disaster movie The Impossible, opposite Ewan McGregor.

    With all three actors better placed to gather in Toronto for reshoots next March, Universal Pictures has pushed the theatrical release of Dream House from Morgan Creek Productions from February 2011 to later in the year.

    Sheridan added that recent test screenings revealed he needs another two or three scenes for Dream House to better explain the movie to audiences.

    “It’s actually more information we need, to give the audience information earlier in the movie, he explained.

    Dream House sees Weisz play the wife of a New York publishing executive (Craig), who relocates his family to a quaint New England town, only to discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her two children.

    “I’m happy enough with it. It will be a good movie. But it’s a very unusual story-line that’s sometimes hard to negotiate,” Sheridan explained.

    “At base, it’s a big love story. On top of that, it’s a genre horror story. On top of that, it’s a psychological thriller. There’s a lot of strands to keep in the air,” he added.

    Postponing the reshoots to March allowed Sheridan to come west this week to the Whistler Film Festival to fulfill a pledge to Norman Jewison and mentor three screenwriters at the Canadian Film Center.

    Sheridan completed the workshop with Blake Corbett and his script for the film Mighty Lion, Katherine Collins with her The Berliner script, and Garfield Lindsay Miller with a script for Bitter Pills.

    “I was really surprised at the level of all of the scripts. Usually it’s a real headache as you have something rather undeveloped. But each was in an advanced stage of development,” Sheridan said.

    The Irish director also welcomed a break from Dream House, and a remake of I Claudius that he will direct for Relativity Media.

    “It takes your mind off what you’re working on, and then it flashes like a light what you should do with the other one, because you’re not paying attention,” Sheridan explained.

    “So for me it’s a great little break and a bit of fun,” he added.

    Guinness Says:

    Mendel–yes the book said Liz looked like a teenager, but she didn’t have to be a teenager so all this hoopla is really tiresome to get the character correct. Hell, the hollywood screenwriters are going to hack it somehow anyway correct? …Larsssssen really hit some awful things associated with womens’ lives. No woman would describe another woman like that unless it was to instantly degrade in a flippant situation. Some of what he wrote really distracts me and how did he know as a man that the thought of having flat chest was demeaning as all hell toward a woman? I really haven’t heard anyone with this description unless they FELT like that—Eva had to have written some of this because it is toooo innate, too personal for a man to ever feel insulted like that so as to describe it in a book. I could probly make a case for Eva!!! deadserious, man!! ok, done.

    anyway…thx for the fixation post…damn he is cut nicely. some men just have icky muscles that look too contrived or too sculpted…he did just the right amount and balance in every section of his body. ohmygash….and i could take him shaved or with the fur!!! dammmmmmmmmn. the snow is melting outside my window!!!

    the reshoot saga seems interesting…they need to “reshoot to better explain the storyline”….nice. good luck with getting everyone together–March should be realllly warmer out. Hey! I am sure that is where he would want to spend his b-day.

    cheers everyone…Mendel–so, what you are saying by avoiding the questions and denying that you even read it, was that you didn’t see Daniel in London with me, nor with Racheal or even Sats, is that correct?
    And if you have changed your password in the past 30 days,you need to contact your local branch for the new user code formulation. good luck with that and x-mas shopping online. ahhhhhhhh Drink! Drink! Feck!

    I did get Dan’s emails but no he is not with me. Too bad. So now we know when he will be in the Toronto area. They will have to make more fake snow. Can’t wait to see the movie. We know the snow was fake, let’s see how real it will look in the movie. But then with Daniel in the shots, we won’t really be looking at the snow, will we. Silly me – but then I am only 12 years old.

    As Goldfinger might have said: Mr Bond, I expect you to buy.・

    Daniel Craig today joined celebrities making real trades ・presumably on the bond markets ・as part of ICAP’s annual charity day in which all profits go to about 200 charities worldwide.

    Princes Charles and William were also expected to take part.

    Hi, Guinness
    “Larsssssen really hit some awful things associated with womens’ lives. No woman would describe another woman like that unless it was to instantly degrade in a flippant situation. Some of what he wrote really distracts me and how did he know as a man that the thought of having flat chest was demeaning as all hell toward a woman? I really haven’t heard anyone with this description unless they FELT like that—Eva had to have written some of this because it is toooo innate, too personal for a man to ever feel insulted like that so as to describe it in a book. I could probly make a case for Eva!!! deadserious, man!! ok, done.”

    Fio thanks for all your hard work finding great stuff. No matter where one films, if you depend on a certain kind of weather, there is a big chance not to get the kind of weather you want. It does not snow on demand in Toronto or anywhere else. The director must be upset, sitting in BC, seeing all the snow comintg down, thinking he will have to again make fake snow in March. Hopefully all 3 actors will be able to clean their schedule to do the reshoots in March. I am looking forward to seeing that movie and hope it turns out great!

    thx for the article Fio. She is a complicated as the entire story. She has been with him for 32 years, how dare his bro and biological father—money is a powerful evil that works on your brain like an addiction. Maybe some day they will throw something her way out of spite and having too much to spend, but she won’t take it…the only way she would take anything from them would be a court of law. And rightly so the man-poops they are. And we wonder why women are *******. THat article made me so mad. Again.

    ho hum. So coool Dan is home for the holiday??? And if he is home, someone would definitely be spotted WITH him, correct? who who who?

    Hi DIH. Will you be going to somewhere warm after the holidays? (NYC last year wasn’t too warm, but didnt you get to Hawaii after new years?)

    Hi Guinness

    “why is everyone else dressed up in costumes”

    Charity events here often involve some kind of costume. Often you are greeted by a cuddly bear and hugged by some other furry animal. All in the spirit of fun, of course!

    “Mendel–you Cinderella?”

    No, I am the one wearing the cornflakes box ;)

    Thanks for the new picture of Dan doing good works. I guess Daniel did not want to dress up as a cowboy (been there done that) He goes out in a high class circle doesn’t he – Charles and William. Good for him. Great that he has extra time off to pop home when he is not needed on set in Sweden. If he is walking around London, someone should get a few pictures of him. Guinness, no “hot” holidays for me this year but maybe a quick trip to Vegas.

    Millenium books Says:

    Sony wanted her to be played by an older actress.
    - It’s because they wanted a big star in the role, and they are often a bit older, otherwise they have not had time to become stars. But we managed to agree there too.”
    _________________________________________
    Sony, fans and Murray imagined someone different for Salander than Rooney.
    They say Rooney had the weather gauge of the girls in auditions because she worked with Fincher on the Facebook movie and Sony agreed because it was Finchers choice.

    If they wanted a big star so they would hire Keira Knightley or Natalie Portman but in the end Fincher decided for starlet from Elm Street.

    My opinion is the actress should be completely unknown as Fincher wish it at the beginning. Why he changed his mind and stopped looking for the European unknown girl?

    No star, no starlet, but someone like was Noomi Rapace who had done some work but she was still unknown.
    Noomi has an interesting origin – a half Spanish and Icelander, if there was another European with south blood and a northern marble face.. I am a Gypsy born in Central Europe and Noomi talked about her new part of a Gypsy woman and told about her meeting Gypsies… she is my sister.

    I expected this comment from you.
    The only ignorant one is you.
    I attended forums with Swedes talking about Dragon Tattoo and other two movies and they said that they did not know Noomi until they saw her in Dragon Tattoo. That she was uknown it came from Swedes.
    If you want, I post links of forums in which they said it. Director Oplev also mentioned in his interviews Noomi was uknown to the audience before Dragon Tattoo. Like I said, she had some work but STILL known to minor audience, some Swedish watchers could see her. in Stieg Larsson official site is the largest forum and fans say the same.

    I liked the 10 things about Bond….article!!! the invisible car was so fricken stupid–that was the last Bond movie until Dan that I watched(I may have walked out on that) ANd YES! the monty python guy was wayyy uncomfortable to watch…it just didn’t “feel” right. So, Dan has brought me back to Bond and memories of my childhood watching with the grown ups!!!

    I will always get chills when i listen to the Chris cornell (?) song…it was sooo fantastically fitting!! and it brings me back to Dan instantly where ever or what ever I am doing. kinda intriguing.

    unfortunately, Daniel turned a blind eye to Satsuki for many years. Moreover, I believe Satsuki wants him back and they will reunion again, probably as Bond is back in the game and Daniel will make a call and ask her to come back to support him.
    I remember, he was not able to make any premiere without her.
    Daniel seems dependant on her too as he never moved without her.
    I said they split this fall and it had happened but next yeat we can see them back together. just wait what Daniel will make that call and Satsuki run back to him. She will run to him, to be realistic, no other men would like to date her.

    She says, “She is something that I have inside me that I’ve wanted to look more deeply into for many years. So when this came to me I was like, ‘Yes, I’ve been waiting to have a reason to open up those things.” Rapace’s father was a gypsy flamenco singer from Spain.”

    ==================
    look, what is your problem here? the story around the allegations that said that daniel is gay were proven to be false a long time ago. no one in LA believed it to begin with. neither did people in new york or london. it HAS always been known that Daniel likes to go to gay bars with friends. you’d be surprised the names of straight actors who do the same. now, as for there being no proof, the people who work on the set of Dream House know differently. and they’ve said so. now please move on from this subject.

    “The project, picked up as a spec by David Loucka, follows a family that relocates into what appears to be the ideal residence in small town Connecticut. However, the husband (Daniel Craig) and wife (Rachel Weisz) are disturbed to discover that their beautiful new home was the site of another family’s slaughter, believed to be at the hands of the husband, who survived.”

    maybe yes, but first he must to choose a good script for himself primarily. for him, yes?
    Daniel Craig would be inspired by other actor Daniel-Day Lewis who chooses a brilliant script and then gets another and another Oscar while Daniel has none and considers to act in a theater.
    DC once said he is receiving 10 scripts to read so why he cannot come across to one good script?
    When I read an interview so he said that before he starts to work on a project he is often infuenced not by script but by that which people work on the project, so in this case, you are really right.
    but tell me, can it help him to make a serious art and be awarded? No. He must be better in choosing good scripts, not to look at Rachel and others.
    I would be amazed if he really made a serious, excellent performance in a good movie with a good script. I wish him this one. I remember as he was awarded for Bond and he was proud and his emotions were visible.

    Daniel Craig, Halle Berry and The Swimsuit Factor
    http://thebikiniswimsuit.com/daniel-craig-halle-berry-and-the-swimsuit-factor.html/

    Halle Berry had her moment to shine. Clue: it wasn’t the Oscars. No one will ever forget her in that bikini scene – when she emerged from the ocean’s wild waters with those piercing eyes, how she smoothed her hair down with a casual stroke of her hand, how the camera played it in slow motion to capture her every micro movement. The entire scene was likely rewound and replayed to death by the more ‘appreciative’ men out there. Orange bikini sales rocketed in the aftermath of the release of Die Another Day, in which she starred alongside Pierce Brosnan.

    Feminists might have recoiled at the sight of a woman so sensuously expressing her feminine curves, but if they did, it was soon made clear to them that that kind of visual feast was not gender specific. A few years later, out came one Daniel Craig – in another James Bond movie – sporting the masculine answer to the orange bikini. It was hardly coincidence that the style in which he sported said costume was much like Halle’s. Gosh darn, the women’s magazines wrote, did he look fine.

    Unsurprisingly, sales of skimpy men’s swimming trunks soared. Close-fitting shorts became the rage. One man, Daniel Craig, had given men everywhere – even those with dubious six packs – the confidence to strut their stuff. A paradigm shifted in the battle of the sexes: men, not just women, began to be openly, shamelessly ogled.

    His role as James Bond – but more likely as the guy in the swimsuit – catapulted him to super stardom. Who knew that swimming trunks held the key to success? The message one might glean from such a phenomenon might be along the lines of the following: buy a swimsuit, preferably a tight one, head to the ocean and get someone to film you as you give it all that on your way out.

    But, alas, this wild speculation may be undermining the talent of the prolific actor. He has many other achievements under his belt besides swimming trunks. Layer Cake, another movie to give him a leg up the success ladder, was critically acclaimed.

    There’s more to the man than blue swimming trunks.

    Our ‘Casablanca’ reboot

    http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/relationships/blog/2010/12/our_casablanca_reboot.html

    Earlier this week, I asked readers to cast a fictional remake of “Casablanca” to win tickets to tonight’s screening. Oddly enough, a number of readers had similar ideas about who should play Rick, Victor, etc. in 2010.

    Here are some of the entries for your board-at-work reading. Only a few won, but these are all pretty interesting. Jennifer Aniston? Katy Perry? Sean Penn? Hmmm.

    1. This is a team effort from my boyfriend and I — we’ll actually be in Casablanca on New Years Day… Rick’s Café does exist (well, a version of it opened a few years ago) and I can’t think of a more romantic place to start another year together!
    Rick Blaine: George Clooney
    Ilsa Lund: Cate Blanchett
    Victor Laszlo: Ralph Feinnes
    Capt. Renault: Steve Buscemi
    Maj. Stasser: Sergi Lopez (evil stepfather in Pan’s Labyrinth) or Christian Bale
    Signor Ferrari: John Cleese
    Carl: Ricky Gervais
    Ugarte: Mark Ruffalo
    Sam: Morgan Freeman (His choice), Chris Rock (my choice)
    Annina Brandel: Rachel Weiss
    Yvonne: Katy Perry (I know, I know… but it’s about time for a film debut)

    2. Hi Meredith,
    I have never seen Casablanca and neither has my boyfriend. My best guess for modern day remake would be Dermot Mulroney (only because I love him) and Scarlet Johannson (because men love her).
    I hope we win because we just spent all our money at the Nantucket Christmas stroll and this would be an awesome way to do another romantic pre holiday weekend. Also because although I’m am avid reader, I hope to never need your advice. After a failed marriage and broken heart I found (running the 2009 Chicago marathon) the man of my dreams.
    Thanks,
    Ran towards a new life and into my dreams

    3. Rick: Ralph Fiennes
    Ilsa: Kate Winslet
    Lazlo: Daniel Day Lewis
    Cpt. Renault Sean Penn
    Strasser: Daniel Craig
    Signor Ferrari: Anthony Hopkins
    Ugarte: Philip Seymour Hoffman
    Sam: Wynton Marsalis

    Director: Clint Eastwood (only director who could get all above to act in this without being the star)

    4. Casablanca is my all-time favorite film. Hands down. And yes, recasting is blasphemous, but also kind of fun.

    * Rick – Robert Downey Jr. (The all-American tough guy, rough around the edges but a decent and brave man at heart. Does the right thing in the end. I went with Clooney at first, but felt he was a bit too obvious and too obviously Clooney on screen. RDJ can bring the star power without reminding the audience they’re watching a celebrity.)
    * Victor Laszlo – Daniel Craig (The sexy, stoic foreigner with something to hide, whose personality is a little too cold to have the same chemistry with Ilsa that Rick does.)
    * Isla – Natalie Portman (The toughest decision to come to – but I think she can achieve that onscreen presence of being fragile yet determined that Ingrid mastered.)
    * Captain Renault – Steve Martin (Random, yes – but think of Claude Rains and tell me you don’t see it!)
    Let’s hope this remake never happens! :)

    5. Rick David Duchovny

    Ilsa Kate Winslet

    Victor Viggo Morgenson

    Capt. Renault Donal Logue

    6. One of my earliest memories is watching Casablanca & the Maltese Falcon with my dad! The love story line is stuff that a good letter to LL is made of… As soon as I read your challenge to cast today’s re-make of it (blasphemy aside!) I was excited because I know exactly who I would want to see: Daniel Craig would be the ultimate Rick Blaine, hands down. Cate Blanchett as Ilsa would be a lovely complement to his Rick. I envision Andy Garcia as Victor Laszlo in that conversation between Rick & Victor discussing Ilsa coming for the papers. Jaime Fox would be a great addition as Sam. And who else can play Ugarte but Steve Buscemi?! I thought of Brad Pitt for Capt. Renault, hesitant but I think he can pull it off. Mads Mikkelsen would make a good Major Stasser. And Giancarlo Giannini could easily be Senor Ferrari.
    Thanks for this opportunity – I had fun doing it!

    7. Hi Meredith,

    I have never seen Casablanca, but I have heard many times that I need to see this movie. I guess it is one of those classics that everybody has seen. Except me. So my best guesses of who should be recast, based on my limited knowledge of the film, are Jennifer Aniston as the leading lady and Matthew McConaughey. Jen because she is immensely likable but doesn’t get her way. And Matthew because he is a strong man who will tell it like it is while still being sensitive to the woman.

    Thank you!!

    8. George Clooney as Rick Blaine – seriously, who else could pull it off but George!
    Scarlett Johansson as Ilsa Lund – she can pull off that Hollywood glamour!
    Jude Law as Viktor Laszlo
    Bob Hoskins as Capt. Renault
    Idris Elba as Sam – what can I say, I just love him!
    John Goodman as Signor Ferrari
    Stellan Skarsgard as Maj. Strasser
    Steve Buscemi as Ugarte – personally I think this is brilliant casting on my part!

    Lionsgate Wins Court Battle Against Carl Icahn in New York
    The decision makes it much harder for Icahn to get his board of nominees approved at Tuesday’s showdown.
    UPDATED

    TORONTO — Lionsgate has won a key legal victory against Carl Icahn ahead of their showdown Tuesday in Los Angeles.

    The Supreme Court of the state of New York on Thursday denied a bid by the Icahn Group to unwind a July 20 debt-for-equity transaction that threatens to sink Icahn’s proxy fight at Lionsgate’s December 14 annual general meeting.

    The court also denied Icahn a preliminary injunction against Mark Rachesky, a major Lionsgate shareholder, from voting shares next week that he acquired as part of the July 20 transaction.

    “The Icahn Group has not made an actual showing that it would be irreparably and inequitably harmed by the denial of the preliminary injunction,” Justice James Yates said in his decision.

    Lionsgate welcomed the New York court denying Icahn legal bid surrounding its July deleveraging transaction, which opens the way to Rachesky voting his entire stake on December 14.

    “The company believes that the transaction, which resulted in the reduction of Lionsgate’s debt by approximately $100 million, supported the best interests of the company and its shareholders,” Lionsgate said in a statement.

    The court heard oral arguments on December 3 surrounding the lawsuit, which aimed to stop Rachesky from voting the July 20 shares, or impacting the December 14 vote on Lionsgate’s board of directors with that stake.

    In the end, the court ruled Icahn’s has no claim on the July 20 shares now held by Rachesky, whatever commitments he had from Lionsgate as part of a 10-day detente leading up to the offending debt-for-equity deal.

    “Although Icahn is an alleged aggrieved party to a breach of the standstill agreement, he does not have a property interest in the shares held by Rachesky, regardless of the ultimate decision regarding the alleged breach,” Justice Yate wrote in a four-page decision.

    The court did offer hope to Icahn, however, by suggesting he can wage another proxy fight at Lionsgate’s September 2011 shareholders’ meeting.

    “In effect, denial of the preliminary injunction at this time will permit existing shareholders to vote on December 14, while giving Icahn, if he loses the proxy fight on that day, and should he prevail in the ensuring litigation, an opportunity for a new election with votes counted as he seeks in less than ten months,” the ruling stated.

    Top 10 Badasses in Cinema

    http://korsgaardscommentary.blogspot.com/2010/12/top-10-badasses-in-cinema.html

    Now few people would debate James Bond’s spot on list, but I am sure many of you are asking what makes me pick Daniel Craig’s version in particular get the honor. As stated in one of my earlier articles on here, one of the charms of the Bond films is that each actor that portrays him gives a different feel to the character. Sean Connery was undeniably cool. Lazenby was down to earth. Roger Moore was comedic, and yet shrewd. Timothy Dalton was a tortured veteran. Even Brosnan, for all his flaws, gave Bond the air of a saboteur. But of all of them, Daniel Craig is the only one that strikes me as the kind of man that strikes fear into the hearts of his enemies.

    In just two movies, the new 007 has left a trail of dismembered bodies and expended bullets that make all of his predecessors pale in comparison. And yet, in spite of his recent upgrade in lethality, Bond still retains the charm and flair for the finer things that made Bond famous in the first place.

    And one of the things that certainly helps his case, is the contrast between him and Brosnan’s incarnation. The last film with Brosnan, ‘Die another Day’, is my personal least favorite for a reason. It had an opening theme by Madonna. Hally Berry gave a sadly lackluster performance as a Bond Girl. Pierce Brosnan was at his hammiest. Worst of all was the villains and their plan are the most over the top since the Moore years. With all due respect, North Korea can’t manage to keep it’s citizens from starving, you expect me to believe they have build an orbital laser cannon?

    Compare that to Casino Royale. The opening credit scene was perhaps the best ever, complete with Chris Cornell and a catchy Alt-Rock theme. The supporting cast is spot on, with Eva Green playing the lovely Vesper Lynd, the sinister Le Chiffre, and perhaps my favorite incarnation of Felix Leiter. And the plot is both realistic and rife with tension, making a normally drab thing like a poker game seem like a life or death situation. And of course, perhaps the best Bond in years.

    But in the end, what makes Craig’s take on 007 particularly badass is the fact that you can believe it. The big flaw in all the others is that they all seem too over the top or fanciful. The more recent 007′s seem like something you could see happening in the real world. Which I suppose is why I am so upset that the Bond Franchise may be endangered, because this incarnation is the most alive and deadliest yet.

    This is all told beautifully, not only are the lead performances pitch-perfect, Ms. Rapace being able to get deep down inside the psych of Lisbeth and bare it all out for our viewing pleasure, but this one also counts with a number of stellar supporting performances, which many times serve to give us a new glimpse into our leading characters. The violence is also still here, in lesser amounts and less shocking than in the first film, but just as effective.

    The Girl Who Played with Fire may be a bit less than its predecessor was, but it’s still remarkable, and so far this trilogy is two for two in my book, and this one just left me desperately wanting to watch the third and final chapter of the story, and I’m guessing that one won’t disappoint, either.

    The Stieg Larsson Millenium trilogy novels have been a massive success worldwide, the bright-colored covers of the paperbacks taking the world by storm and everyone just eating up the story of Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist. Hollywood is already gearing up their adaptations, with David Fincher directing Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig in the lead roles, and I’m sure that film will be as amazing as everything Mr. Fincher does. But Sweden, the native country of the novel’s author, has already done all three films. I saw the first one, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo a while ago and gave it a A- grade and thought was just a pretty neat film overall, with an amazing breakthrough performance from Noomi Rapace, who since been cast in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes sequel.

    Now, The Girl Who Played with Fire is still a very good film, but it’s not as good as the first one was. Ms. Rapace is still excellent as Lisbeth Salander, as is Michael Nyqvist in the role of Mikael Blomkvist, but the film as a whole isn’t as terrific as that first entry. Though, as sequels go, this is still a remarkable second entry in the franchise. And that’s because it keeps the raw power that made the first one so good in the first place, that’s intact, and considering Ms. Rapace is still as riveting in the leading role, then all’s good.

    And that’s really the biggest thing this has going for it, the performances, and that’s why, no matter how talented a director Mr. Fincher may be, and he is, creating a Hollywood version that surpasses these Swedish ones won’t be an easy task at all. In this film we get a bit more insight into the character of Lisbeth, we get to discover a bit about her childhood, but she’s still a mystery to us. And Lisbeth is certainly one the best characters to come out of any media in years, she’s far from your average heroine, her power is her ability to hack into computers, her drive is her hatred towards men who commit violence to women.

    These are very cool and powerful films, films in which the violence is very graphic and films that have respect for their awesome source material. And that’s because what’s so good about the novels is that they are very human, they connect the characters not to horrible stereotypes, which would have been the easy way out, but to actual human traits, which is why these work so well, because they’re people we could imagine doing things we could imagine them doing.

    In this one we have Mikael still at it as a journalist, trying to get names and details of a women trafficking deal between Russia and Sweden. While Lisbeth has just returned to Stockholm, hot on the trails of a killer that will see her facing bits of her past she wishes she could avoid confronting again. And I won’t tire of talking about how great Ms. Rapace is here, she embodies Lisbeth so well, we feel her sense of alienation, how she has never needed anyone by her side, she totally owns this character, and I wish good luck to Ms. Mara in trying to emulate her.

    There is stuff missing from the novel, that’s true, but what’s been taken out are just minor details and side stories that, while neat, would have probably made this film a bit too overstuffed. And it’s better this way, with just the basic core there for us to get to pay more attention to Lisbeth and her main mission. And that mission thickens as Lisbeth herself is accused of murder, and it’s up to her with the help of Mikael to free herself from these claims and get to the man who wants her out of the equation.

    This is all told beautifully, not only are the lead performances pitch-perfect, Ms. Rapace being able to get deep down inside the psych of Lisbeth and bare it all out for our viewing pleasure, but this one also counts with a number of stellar supporting performances, which many times serve to give us a new glimpse into our leading characters. The violence is also still here, in lesser amounts and less shocking than in the first film, but just as effective.

    The Girl Who Played with Fire may be a bit less than its predecessor was, but it’s still remarkable, and so far this trilogy is two for two in my book, and this one just left me desperately wanting to watch the third and final chapter of the story, and I’m guessing that one won’t disappoint, either.

    Grade: B+

    ‘Girl’ is talk of town in Stockholm
    Fincher pic puts local biz into spotlight

    http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118028382?refCatId=13

    David Fincher isn’t talking to the press about his English-language version of “Girl With a Dragon Tattoo” but the film — which has been shooting on location in Stockholm since September — is the talk of the town and the local biz.
    Its creative team insists that it is not a remake of the original film, directed by Niels Arden Oplev, that has grossed some $100 million-plus worldwide.

    “For David it was very important to make a film that has the Swedish soul in it, and (Stieg) Larsson’s book has a very ugly undercurrent in it,” says Stockholm’s film commissioner Ingrid Rudefors, who liaises between the production and city and government authorities.

    But the shoot is more important to the local biz than it may look at first glance. Attracting a major Hollywood production to Sweden — a country with no tax incentives — is a major coup. It also put a bigger spotlight on the local talent and pics, which Hollywood has been cherrypicking more and more in the past couple of years, from “Let the Right One In,” remade as “Let Me In,” to Warners tapping remake rights of hit “Snabba Cash,” to “Cash” helmer Daniel Espinosa handling helming duties on “Safe House,” starring Denzel Washington, among other deals. Rudefors hopes that Fincher’s film can be used as leverage to persuade the Swedish government to consider incentives.

    “The producers of Fincher’s film are going to give me the detailed in-country spending figures so I can demonstrate to our finance minister the impact of such a major production,” Rudefors says.

    But incentives have critics.

    Bengt Toll, deputy CEO at the Swedish Film Institute, which funds local productions, thinks there are big risks associated with setting up incentive schemes.

    “You get into ‘incentive wars,’ ” he says, “For such a small industry as Sweden’s, where around 40 features are made a year, it is better to look at ways of raising more money for local and co-productions.”

    Toll’s aim is to raise more money from expanding the current levy on audiovisual sales and cinema tickets to include a tax on broadband and other new-media platforms. He proposes reducing the window on theatrical releases to allow such platforms to offer subscribers new films sooner.

    Max Girl Says:

    Hey, I hope someone ruins this character Craig Mitchell for ever. At least James Bond threw him out of the roof and Dominic Greene’s men killed him. but Craig Mitchell always is there in the movie and is linked to Satsuki and Daniel.

    By the way, as in QOS Craig Mitchell was killed so in MI6 they think it was Bond who killed him and they would investigate what had happened that night and see who actually killed Craig Mitchell (Greene’s men). it would be pending case and they would solve it in the next bondmovie but in that way that Craig Mitchell becomes ridiculus and it would make better taste in fans’s tongues.

    Max Girl Says:

    the adviser to the British Prime Minister in QoS (who was actually working for Quantum)? Only had a very brief part. Bond threw his bodyguard off a roof at the opera…

    Guy Haines is the gray haired guy who appears first on bond’s camera phone he says something after a man says And if the americans know their dooped haines says “I’ll take care of that”
    ——–
    so pending case in the case of Haines.

    to Gina Max Girl Says:

    you’re an idiot. Craig Mitchell is the guy who was shot by James Bond in Sienna.

  547. 547
    Haines Says:

    “If the bodyguard was protecting Haines, a Quantum member, why did they killed him? unless the bodyguiard was contracted by the Goverment and know anything of Haines assosiation with Quantum.”

    “I would imagine your second point is correct. The bodyguard was employed by the British Government, and was unaware of Haines’ illicit activities.”

    “Remember, Greene says something implying Haines’ bodyguard isn’t part of Quantum. “Then he shouldn’t be looking at me”

    “It is not even clear why Haines’ bodyguard start chasing and shooting at Bond in the first place. And Bond asked him twice but only got “piss off” back. Why is it a big secret to be a bodyguard to Haines?”

    “BUT that said, someone on this forum (I can’t remember who) pointed out that it was the same guy who was behind Greene when his group met Bond down the stairs and they looked at each other before. And the bodyguard started chasing Bond when Green gave him a nod. If this is true, it is indeed weird and confusing from Greene to act as if he didn’t know him.”

    “Aside from being a Quantum member, Haines is a political identity, and thus warrants some protection from Special Branch. Special Branch obviously do not know of th existence of Quantum, and thus believe it is a routine assignment. When Haines leaves prematurely, Special Branch would believe he’s in danger (even if Haines didn’t tell them outright), and thus pursue Bond. But Bond assumed the Special Branch operative was working for Quantum, and so dropped him off the opera house. But as he wasn’t a Quantum operative, Greene ordered his death because the man, while wounded, may be able to identify him.”

  548. 548
    Max Girl Says:

    @to Gina Max Girl:
    Ok, I went wrong. so I was talking about Haines’s bodyguard. Haines’s and Mitchell are the same guy for me, sorry.. och…

    M is trying to find why C. Mitchell betrayed her and she is investigating it. she has no information about him and scanned his appartment. It would be interesting who is C.Mitchell really and they would show it in the next bondmovie. Althought I dislike this character, so his name would be back in the movie as they would talk about him.

    QUOTE: Daniel Craig was in legitimate pain as he was whipped (while naked!) during Casino Royale’s brutal torture scene. “Once in a while I’d hear Daniel scream [for real],” the movie’s villain, Mads Mikkelsen, told PEOPLE. “That meant, Uh-oh, I better take a step back.”

    Elena Joseph: Why small and less glamorous charities need celebritiesSmaller and less glamorous organisations might find it more difficult to link up with celebrities – but as PR guru Max Clifford says, they should persevere
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/voluntary-sector-network/2010/dec/13/small-charities-celebrities

    “Daniel Craig is a celebrity supporter of RNLI, but smaller charities can find it hard to attract such glamorous celebrity endorsements”

    “Celebrities are used in different ways. The RNLI uses them to support particular fundraising campaigns – Daniel Craig has been very supportive in trying to raise funds for a new lifeboat in the area he grew up in, for example.”

    “The network has so far raised £3 million for social and environmental causes, and recently British actor Daniel Craig and U.K. television news presenter Jon Snow took to the stage to represent their chosen charities. Dr. Mulder says the aim of TFN is to inspire entrepreneurial style giving — to introduce new donors to social change, many of whom might not have previously considered themselves eligible philanthropists. “We are the only open ‘giving circle’ in the U.K. aimed at the general public, and it is this sector which needs the most nurturing, and we think, has the most potential,” he says.”

    Thank you DF and Fio.
    I have been lurking…
    I miss Mendel as well.
    Some good info here….keep it up and keep it nice, great job.
    I have no time to myself…let alone Danness. Holidays, power outage, bad weather, christmas kids concerts, gym time, family time, appointments for the doctor–hernia, and dentist(i chewed on a staple), christmas shopping, sister in hospital.
    I am going nuttier. Already nuts.
    Dan getting spotted everywhere–he is alone? or rather, he is without a lady escort? The man is sexshial no matter who or what gender(don’t start!!!!!)

    I loved the charity event….wholy crap that looked like fun. I would be in the Imperial army brigade…that was cool. umpa loompas were cool. Why was all the phone holders men? Like, I would be GRABBING Dan to come *naughty* over to MY phone….”please, Mr. Craig, talk into my receiver….” damn….

    and all the news is about harry Ford, when i google Dan. Guess what kids? he has done some fab-o stuff but damn, he is good, but let us look at the real talent in C&A!!! …. I think Harrison is crabby in real life so being a crabby cowboy–maybe he doesn’t have to act so much. He really hasn’t done anything to challenge his acting ability—he just got lucky to land a role next to Princess Lea. ahhhhh! I also feel Ms. Wilde is overrated too. whtevr. Dan, this better get what you want here.

    And how ’bout that scary incident in Stockholm? Amazing it hasn’t been more in USA. yet.

    And Repace was in the NYtimes this weekend. She is fanfukingtastically beautiful. and the “ice queen”. dam.

    Just found this..:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/citydiary/8199745/Is-this-double-trouble-for-the-markets.html

    007 plus Sony Pictures equals 23

    Spotted, Daniel Craig walking through Soho’s Golden Square. Obviously this is very exciting in itself but there is more to this than just the thrill of seeing a Bond actor in the flesh – there is the intrigue around the next the Bond film.

    Production of number 23, as it is excitingly known, was suspended back in April over concerns about film studio MGM finances.

    Since then the company has filed for bankruptcy protection in the US and the film has been on and off more often than the safety catch on Bond’s Walther PPK.

    So what can we glean from our sighting of Bond in Golden Square?

    Well, first that he’s a lot shorter than you might think, and second that Bond film number 23 is back on. Definitely. Probably.

    The logic is that as well as Craig, the other thing you find in Golden Square is the headquarters of Sony Pictures.

    Now, while MGM may hold the rights for the Bond films, it’s Sony that is more involved on a day-to-day basis. Which will explain all the product placement.

    So, like two and two, if you put Daniel Craig and Sony Pictures together what do you get? Well, number 23, of course.

    Review: BNAT 12 features early looks at ‘Rango,’ ‘Cowboys and Aliens,’ ‘Green Hornet’ and more – From short glimpses to full features with a side trip for IMAX, fest delivers on the sneaks

    http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured/posts/review-buttnumbathon-12-features-early-looks-at-rango-cowboys-and-aliens-green-hornet-and-more

    The rest of the premieres were held until the end of the festival, but we had special presentations by Universal and Paramount in the middle of things. Jon Favreau, Bob Orci, and Ron Howard came rolling in, and they brought a full 40 minutes of footage with them for next summer’s “Cowboys and Aliens.” I’d actually seen this at a recent visit to the editing room, just before the release of the trailer for the movie, and I’m impressed with it. Starting with Daniel Craig waking up alone in the desert, confused, his wrist wrapped in some sort of mechanical device, no memory of who he is or how he got there, the film moves quickly. Even before the main title comes up, we get a look at Craig in action, taking out a group of armed men, even tackling one of them off a horse. Clancy Brown, Keith Carradine, Sam Rockwell, and Adam Beach all show up in interesting roles as townspeople who have to struggle with the iron fist of Col. Dollarhyde, played with appropriate grizzle by Harrison Ford, and his idiot son Percy, played by Paul Dano. One of the best things about the footage is the near-constant abuse that Dano takes, and I hope it’s a running thread in the film. Craig and Ford both come across as big giant alpha males, and the idea of the two of them having to work together to sort out the mystery of what happened to Craig and what happened to the townspeople that are abducted in the action set piece that wrapped up the sequence we saw. I like the slow burn in the 40 minutes we saw, the emphasis on character, the Western tropes played just right. Olivia Wilde plays a local woman who seems to know something about Craig and his troubles, and we saw some footage that hinted at a larger mystery involving her. Favreau seems cautiously optimistic about the film so far, excited by what he’s doing, and Ron Howard couldn’t have been more effusive in his praise right before it played. They were smart to show an uninterrupted chunk of the movie like this, because it demonstrates exactly what the tone is, and how the genre mash-up will work when it’s finished. I can’t wait for the film to open on July 29, 2011.

    Butt Numb-A-Thon 12 Recap
    http://www.ugo.com/movies/cowboys-aliens-1

    We’ve been up for 30 hours straight watching movies at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas at the invite-only birthday party for Ain’t It Cool’s Harry Knowles. We’re delirious, achey and have a cough – but we have to share some of what we saw.

    Cowboys & Aliens

    Now we get into some real surprises.

    Jon Favreau, Ron Howard and Roberto Orci showed up to present us with roughly 40 minutes of footage from Cowboys & Aliens. Favs said that even producer Steven Spielberg hadn’t seen what they were going to show us.

    Now, they were very, very specific that we shouldn’t get too particular in what we saw. Favreau basically got down on hands and knees and said, “if you write on the Internet, you can say you liked it – or didn’t like it – but please don’t go any further than that.”

    So, with that, allow me to just say this: Daniel Effing Craig. Daniel M. Effing Craig, to be more specific.

    Here’s a guy I really only know from being James Bond. (And the South African toughie in Munich.) He ascends to incredible badass heights here. Iconic. It’s no coincidence he is sharing the spotlight here with Harrison Ford. There is well earned torch-passing going on here.

    Paul Dano is amazing, too. I’ve noticed that Favreau’s way of directing actors seems to almost have a Robert Altman-lite quality to it. In the case of Iron Man 2, maybe a little too much improvising got away from him, but it seems to be working wonders in Cowboys & Aliens.

    Okay – one minor spoiler – I’m 99% certain I heard a Wilhelm Scream in the mix.

    Lastly: reason 756 to love the Alamo Drafthouse? Clancy Brown’s title card got the biggest applause of them all.

    Some Thoughts On The First 40 Minutes of COWBOYS & ALIENS

    http://www.badassdigest.com/2010/12/13/some-thoughts-on-the-first-40-minutes-of-cowboys-aliens/daniel_craig_cowboys_and_aliens

    This weekend I was in Austin for Harry Knowles’ annual Butt-Numb-A-Thon, an event I love. We had some really intriguing and amazing vintage films play and some hit or miss new films, but we also had a couple of footage presentations. I’ll say this up front: I hate these things. Ever since Fellowship of the Ring studios have been hot to show geek journalists and audiences 20 or 30 minutes of an upcoming movie; to me this ruins the experience of seeing the real film for the first time, and I’d rather just watch the unfinished movie than a big chunk of the film.

    One of the footage presentations this year was the first 40 minutes of Cowboys & Aliens, Jon Favreau’s big summer blockbuster for 2011. It was incomplete, without FX and obviously missing insert shots and some other stuff. This makes it hard to judge what I was looking at, but I can say one thing:

    Jon, make this 40 minutes into nothing more than 18 minutes.

    What we saw was essentially exactly what was shown at Comic Con, except stretched out. Really stretched out. I am a fan of the concept of Cowboys & Aliens, and I am a fan of Favreau and of Daniel Craig, but what we saw was way too flat and way too empty.

    I think the great stuff in the film will be coming in the scenes after what we saw at BNAT, which makes showing that opening act feel like a weird choice. That said, I do have some worries about the general script; much of what we saw were intros to characters in the Old West town, and Sam Rockwell is given some lines where he just nakedly lays out his character and his relationships in a way that sounds like he’s reading writers Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof’s notes on the character out loud. Just cringe-inducingly on the nose dialogue.

    Daniel Craig seems great; he has a true badass quality about him and he sells some really terrific moments of action and coolness. Paul Dano is impressive as a total weasel of a character; I think I’m going to like seeing bad things happen to him in the film. Olivia Wilde is intriguing, but had very little screen time in the opening 40.

    The big question mark is Harrison Ford. He looked befuddled for much of the opening act, and even in scenes where befuddlement wasn’t called for. He’s playing a heavy, and he has the growl for it, but I have to wait until I see more to really figure him out.

    I don’t think you’ll ever see the version of act one of Cowboys & Aliens that we saw; Favreau is obviously trying to create the flavor of a Western, but his pacing here is just too slack. Also too slack is the big action set piece – setting aside the unfinished effects (which, by the way, I kind of loved – alien spacecraft portrayed as just banks of lights feels right), the editing was too loose and the attack went on for way too long without enough high points. There’s a repetitive nature to seeing saloons and other Old West buildings blow up as people run around in confusion and shoot Colts into the sky.

    After BNAT some of us discussed what the marketing point of the footage was. Some folks felt that it was to get across the fact that this is a serious film and the Western elements are done seriously. I think it’s just because Favreau really values that audience. He’s aware that Comic Con gave Iron Man a major boost, and ever since then he’s been very interested in catering to the geek crowd. I think he brought that footage because he wanted to do something cool for that audience, which I like and respect.

    I’m still positive and hopeful for Cowboys & Aliens. I just hope that the next two acts are a little more thrilling than what we saw in Austin.

    My Thoughts on Bond.
    http://thebyards.blogspot.com/2010/12/my-thoughts-on-bond.html
    So I know I haven’t been posting too much lately. We’ve been awfully busy with the last week of classes and now finals…scrapping everything together and getting it all turned in. We’re very excited for the next three weeks! Today I had two finals and Kyle had one. After we got home, we decided to take a little break before going back to the grind for tomorrow. We took a nap, made a breakfast pizza, and watched On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (a James Bond movie).
    Let me just say to all of you…there are currently twenty-two (official) Bond movies. You should make it a goal to watch all of them. Or if not all of them, at least several of them, and definitely one from each of the men that played Bond. I actually quite like all of the men as Bond…except for Roger Moore…and I’m not too much of a fan of Timothy Dalton. All six of them are good for their own reasons (from left to right starting at the top):

    6) Daniel Craig….ooooooooooh. He’s a cutie! And the first blonde Bond! I like Daniel Craig because he’s a super tough and believable James Bond. And the plots of the two movies he’s done leave nothing to be desired. These movies don’t have any gadgets, though, so if that’s something you like…sorry! Casino Royale is one of my favorite Bond movies! It has a sad ending, just like On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

    From the few pictures we have seen of him lately, he looks healthy, happy and as you said Fio, absorded in his work. Beeing back in London is good for him. Beeing busy workwise is good for him. Maybe being “in love again” is wonderful for him as well. We will see. I wonder about the “lingerie” he was buying. Not for his daugher, not for his mother, then who? Me I hope! Or is he giving it to Guinness, Mendel, Fio or better still, all of us.

    So it is confirmed what people thought about C&A when watching the trailer, Craig-retouched-assed poster, now this about it was flat and empty.
    I said from the beginning Dream House should never be made and I doubted they will make reshoots this year, now it is revealed they are gonna finish Dream House next year in March… what a news!
    tell me how they want to make reshoots of Dream House when Dragon Tattoo is in process filming until March? and also its is probable that preparations for Bond start at the beginning of the next year. Maybe Dream House will be lucky and finds some free days in March, it depends what exact day Dragon Tattoo finishes.

    Hi Fio—I really can’t top those cat pic with Freezy’s pic…he is just too fast for the girls these days to catch him. I am just glad we haven’t found him in or on top of the christmas tree—-or what happened in National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!!! I did anchor the tree in case he does get ideas, not kidding. That pic did give me some great idea for building a new type of snowperson with the girls!! awesome!!

    OH! comment on the posts from Fio… ya know…Dan is too far gone ahead of where Harrison was this age, so there ain’t no “passing the torch”, Dan is way better an actor and will go further and has gone further than Harrison—-international celeb. It is too bad American audiences only have Bond to go on, not bad, he got a little exposure*ohmygash, no comment from the Mendel audience**…but we here are doing our best to change our own little world toward educating everyone about Dan’s talent, aren’ t we??? From the reviews… i am getting the impression he says little with his voice in this movie also? And you know what dialogue his hotness has left to use, correct. Damn straight!

    I’m Most Excited About…#4
    http://filmfancy.blogspot.com/2010/12/im-most-excited-about4.html
    These are a few films that have been on my radar for some time, and they’re the films I’m probably most excited to see. Some of these films have been released, but I haven’t seen them yet, so there. Here’s the fourth film of this series…
    I could go on for several paragraphs about why this movie is pretty much going to be amazing, but honestly, why would that be necessary? Let’s just quickly run through the facts.
    It stars Daniel Craig, who has been signed on to the James Bond franchise as the titular character, and doing a fabulous job as the famous agent. While I had a cold attitude toward the new Bond, who is more rough and tumble than suave, I quickly warmed up to Craig. He may have yet to utter the famous “Bond, James Bond” line, but as far as I’m concerned he’s already established his Bond badassery. Craig will now be applying this badassery to this movie, which is fine with me.
    Co-starring with Craig is Harrison Ford, who’s last three movies have been, to put it lightly, bad. Need I remind you of the fourth Indiana Jones, or Extraordinary Measures? Let’s just ignore his reprisal as Indy and stick with his other recent films, which have pretty much been him trying to move outside the Action genre. And the other genres pretty much crushed his soul under the cash from his sellout and told him to get back where he belongs. So now, here’s Ford in a new action movie getting back in the saddle (ahaha Western, saddle, get it?). Here’s to hoping it’s awesome. And who are we kidding? It’s Harrison Ford getting his hands dirty in a western. I’m up for that. Olivia Wilde also stars. The actress has been in breakout heaven this season with two big-budget films, this and Tron.
    Also have I mentioned the star power behind this? Steven Spielberg is executive producer, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are also producing. As for the writers, Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof are the powerhouses behind this baby. You might not recognize those names, so let me just say that they pretty much own the genre of Awesome. No joke. Orci and Kurtzman wrote the new Star Trek, both Transformers, TV shows Hawaii Five-O and Fringe, Mission Impossible III, The Island, and to top it all, several seasons of Alias. Lindelof is pretty famous as well for a little show that was pretty popular called Lost. Director Jon Favreau has been at the helm of both Iron Man movies. Seriously, the crew is almost cooler than the cast.
    Hi, DiH
    “Maybe being “in love again” is wonderful for him as well.”
    Y’know, this is probably none of my business, but my heart goes pitter-patter! lol
    Hi, Mendel

    Why we love bad writing
    http://www.salon.com/books/stieg_larsson/?story=/books/laura_miller/2010/12/14/docx
    Stieg Larsson and Dan Brown novels are riddled with cliches, but for many readers, that’s a feature not a bug
    Forget peace on earth — there won’t even be peace among the bookshelves after the salvo against popular fiction launched in the pages of the Guardian newspaper this week by the British novelist Edward Docx. Docx, dismayed to find himself on a train full of passengers with their noses stuck in Stieg Larsson thrillers, announced “we need urgently to remind ourselves of — for want of better terminology — the difference between literary and genre fiction.” This, all too predictably, ignited multiple charges of outrage across the Internet.
    Guardian readers have already ably dismantled the straw men in Docx’s essay. I don’t agree with most of what he says, but he has a point when he suggests that the other side often resorts to arguments as trumped up as his own. In fact, ferocious defenders of genre fiction seem far more numerous to me than its (public) detractors, and Docx may have even done them a favor; they seem to enjoy their indignation an awful lot. The not-so-secret reason why pissing matches are so common, after all, is that some people just really love taking it out.
    Instead of getting into all that, however, let’s consider the original source of Docx’s concern: the enormous popularity of Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy and the novels of Dan Brown. Certainly, these writers are far from the best their genres have to offer. Even the most vehement of genre champions will not argue that either man is a good, or even adequate, stylist. (Larsson himself seems to have been well aware that he was no Hemingway.) Rather, they are both, in many respects and apart from the whole genre question, fairly bad writers. So why do so many people devour their books?
    I pose this question as someone who enjoyed all three of Larsson’s books, although I don’t care for Brown’s. I am exactly the sort of person who might be glimpsed reading “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” on a train. Docx seems to think his fellow citizens only resort to these books because they aren’t aware of the much better ones out there. “We simply have to find a way to bring the finest writers of the language more often to the attention of the carriages of people up and down the country who are evidently still willing and able to buy novels for the journey,” he writes. These hapless souls are currently being “subjected” to “atrociously bad” thrillers when they could be immersed in such Docx favorites as “Franzen, Coetzee, Hollinghurst, Amis, Mantel, Proux, Ishiguro, Roth.”

    Seven Stories Press Acquires Memoir by Stieg Larsson’s Partner

    http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/seven-stories-press-acquires-book-by-stieg-larssons-partner_b19183

    Eva Gabrielsson spent 30 years as novelist Stieg Larsson‘s life partner. Now Seven Stories Press has acquired the North American rights to her memoir about their lives together. Linda Coverdale will translate.
    Here’s more from the release: “Gabrielsson describes their activism and deep political passion, their struggle to keep Stieg’s magazine Expo going, their early lives, as well as the seemingly mundane details that make a life: their love of coffee and Stockholm cafes, etc. … The book also includes never-before-seen photographs and letters.”
    The book is currently untitled. While Swedish, French, and Norwegian editions will arrive in January 2011, the English market will have to wait until June 2011. In a 2009 interview with Publishing Perspectives, Gabrielsson mentioned a memoir tentatively titled The Year After Stieg.

    Because they tell a very good story! I have never read Brown, but Larsson really drew me into the books with the great story and Lisbeth’s character. And I read the books so quickly, I never even noticed that bad style (and some wonky expressions I put down to translation problems).

    Hi!
    from Fio’s post…” the crew is almost as cool as the cast”…very well-put!
    You have seen Dan Browns movies…they are just like the books.
    Dan Brown & Stieg have written for the public, not for themselves– they are in the same genre–the same Hollywood category…the same creativity level…they tell a great story but leave out a sense of intellectualism–if they were art, they would be concrete, not abstract art. which is fine, if that is what does it for you and that is what you are in the mood for!

    anyway, no fight for the handcuffs huh? wow, you are easy to cut in line then too? I will remember that outside the Dan Van with DIH and DTM and now Fio!!! when are you getting to London to scope out Chanel and all the app stores for DC Mendel?? come on–get your coat, hat, & gloves and CXAMERA–with a hot tottie, of course…and stand in Soho country!!

    anyway, it is frigid here, and snowing all day long–thanks for asking DF.

    The Secret Obsessions of ‘Dragon Tattoo’ Author Stieg Larsson
    http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/news/the-secret-obsessions-of-dragon-tattoo-author-stieg-larsson-20101214
    Nathaniel Rich, writer of the Larsson profile in the new issue of ‘Rolling Stone,’ discusses the enigmatic late novelist.
    In the six years since his death, Stieg Larsson has become the world’s bestselling author — and its most enigmatic. He is the prize product of what RS contributor Nathaniel Rich calls “Stieg Larsson Industries,” a high-powered publicity machine that continues to pump life into the mysteries surrounding the author — from the mundane to the wildly conspiratorial (including rumors that Larsson faked his death and is in hiding somewhere from Nazi assassins). Rich, who has written before about the Scandinavian crime-fiction boom, traveled to Sweden this fall in pursuit of the real Stieg Larsson.
    Through Rich’s conversations with the author’s closest friends and family members, some of whom have remained silent until now, Larsson the person begins to emerge: a frustrated journalist and crime-novel obsessive who was driven by his crusade to monitor the neo-Nazi movement in Sweden, and a respected expert who worked with everyone from Scotland Yard to the Southern Poverty Law Center in combating the spread of dangerous extreme-right movements worldwide.
    But the myth of Stieg Larsson is likely to persist. “Everyone wants these stories to be real,” says Rich. “His fans, reporters, and most of all, anyone who stands to profit from his books.”
    Stieg Larsson has to be one of the most solidly enigmatic — and speculated-about — figures in the world at the moment. What was it like to go to Sweden in pursuit of his story?
    It was daunting, because the people close to him have been interviewed many hundreds of times. A mythology of his life has emerged — one that is highly entertaining but in certain aspects totally preposterous.
    How did you break through that, piece together the man behind the myth?
    I spoke to a lot people who knew him, and a different story started to emerge: I started to realize that at his core this guy was a science-fiction geek and crime-novel junkie who became obsessed with a relatively narrow subject in Sweden — the history and practices of the extreme right wing. His desire to learn about these fringe groups gave his life meaning, and eventually took the form of an obsession.
    You mention in the piece that it was actually a thriller — Frederick Forsyth’s “The Odessa File” — that inspired him to start collecting information about extremist and racist groups in Scandinavia.
    He started an archive, which is now stored in the Expo offices. There are about six huge filing cabinets, 7-feet-tall, on tracks. The archive contains every kooky newsletter and piece of hate mail sent by Swedish racists and xenophobes in the last 50 years, and every newspaper clipping about hate crimes and Nazi marches. Friends joked that Stieg knew the name, address and even the shoe size of every Nazi in Sweden. The archive goes beyond what any national intelligence service would have — or even want. He was like the obsessives you see at science-fiction or crime-novel conventions, only he was monitoring real people. Of course the neo-Nazis loved this: They were Expo’s most loyal readers.
    What do you think of the books themselves?
    I was much less interested in the books than in the way an industry is created around a bestselling writer, especially a dead writer who can’t speak for himself. There is a deep desire that the writer’s life story be as exciting as the books themselves. I don’t know whether this comes out of a lack of imagination on the part of readers, our out of a yearning for the novels’ spell to continue past the final page. Probably some measure of both.
    The novels themselves are modeled fairly closely on traditional British crime fiction. The setting is more exotic, there are lots of long names peppered with umlauts, but the main novelty is the Lisbeth Salander character. As Larsson was careful to point out in the only interview he did before his death — to a Swedish booksellers’ magazine — Salander is based in part on Pippi Longstocking, the character who is the subject of the bestselling books in Sweden’s history. This was no coincidence. Larsson’s goal was to write a bestseller. He said the books would be his “retirement fund.”
    Stieg Larsson’s niece, Therese Larsson, is a big part of your story — most significantly as a real-world inspiration for Lisbeth Salander. What was it like to meet her?
    She’s given almost no interviews to American journalists, and she’s given very few interviews at all. I spent the day with her, and I really liked her. She’s very positive, full of life, a kickboxing enthusiast. She’s suffered a lot of tragedy in her life, and lost a lot of people who were close to her. I found her very sympathetic. And, of course, she’s baffled by the level of her uncle’s success, like everyone else. It’s surreal to her.
    Did you see a resemblance to Lisbeth Salander?
    I did. Larsson drew from her, but he also drew from other people, and he made stuff up. It’s easy to misunderstand the creative process and think that everything’s real. It’s especially easy to do that with Larsson. He writes about a magazine that’s vaguely similar to the magazine he ran, Expo, and a main character who’s an investigative journalist, as he was.
    What do you think is most misunderstood about Stieg Larsson — and his books, for that matter?
    What I tried to get across in my piece, and what hasn’t not been reported much, is that Larsson was really savvy about the conventions of crime novels, and his goal was to write a bestseller. There is a universal myth about the writer who makes it big late in life: by day, he toils away at some job he doesn’t care about, but at night, he works on his masterpiece. It didn’t really work like that with Larsson. He was genuinely obsessed with exposing bigotry. He was running out of money for his magazine, and lived a hard life-he was poor, he’d always been poor, his family was poor. There was a real financial expediency to his decision to write the books. He loved crime novels, but more than that he saw the Millennium series as a way to solve his financial problems once and for all. He was a great student of the crime novel. He knew the formula exactly and he knew what worked.
    He might have gone on and written many more novels, but none of his friends think he would’ve given up Expo. That was his real passion. If he could write the novels instead of having to beg for funding, he’d be happy, but really his love was Expo. It was his crusade.

    ‘Social Network’ sweeping awards, but where’s Rapace?

    http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/movies/blog/2010/12/social_network_sweeping_yearen.html

    David Fincher’s “The Social Network” continued to rack up best picture and other top prizes at year-end awards over the weekend, most notably at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. (For a full list of the latest prize rosters, click here.) That’s not surprising, given its unanimous acclaim.

    What is surprising: The one performer who received similar praise and massive multimedia coverage for the first two-thirds of the year — Noomi Rapace, who plays Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish film versions of the Millennium Trilogy — has not been winning the best actress race. (That’s Rapace, above, as Salander in “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.”) Last weekend all she earned was a “breakthrough” award from the New York Online critics.

    Is this just another case of shortened memory span? Did Rapace peak too early, clearing the way for Natalie Portman in “The Black Swan?” Are critics reluctant to honor foreign films that are as frankly commercial as these adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s best-sellers? Or are the voters saving their love for Fincher’s version of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?”

    Brad Pitt interview
    Speculation about the Brad Pitt – Jennifer Aniston Breakup and Angelina Jolie Highlights the Danger of Inappropriate Friendships in a Marriage
    Even if the rumors of an extramarital affair are untrue, it appears that directly or indirectly, Angelina Jolie contributed to the break-up of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. This points out the danger of inappropriate friendships in a marriage.
    There has been a great deal of speculation surrounding the break-up of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, and what role Angelina Jolie may have played. At least three different rumors are circulating as to what may have been the cause.

    Rumors of an Extramarital Affair
    One rumor has it that Pitt and co-star Angelina Jolie were having an affair. This rumor began circulating last May, when Pitt was photographed holding Jolie’s hand on the set while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith. They both denied there was any romance.

    Massawyrm’s Spoiler Free take on the first 40 minutes of Jon Favreau’s COWBOYS & ALIENS
    http://www.aintitcool.com/node/47768
    Hola all. Massawyrm here.
    This past weekend at Butt-Numb-a-Thon, we were treated to the 40 minute opening of Jon Favreau’s upcoming summer blockbuster COWBOYS & ALIENS. While the effects and sound were still unfinished, the film was a smoothly edited, already perfectly structured 1st act introducing us to the characters – both good and bad – the situation and offered up hints that left a number of dangling threads leading into the second and third act. Unfortunately, as the film is so far out on the horizon (July), the offer to show COWBOYS & ALIENS came with the caveat that we couldn’t offer up spoilers or scene descriptions. What I can talk about is how good it is (thus far) and talk in some much more broad terms as to why this works – and might even prove to be better than any of Favreau’s previous films.
    As many of you might remember, earlier this year in my IRON MAN 2 review, I laid out what I felt was Favreau’s only obvious flaw as a director: He likes his villains too much. I wrote: There is a term in screenwriting called Saving the Cat – something Favreau does with Tony Stark repeatedly in both films. To put it simply, saving the cat is a little selfless moment that illustrates the goodness and moral center inside our hero. Despite the fact that Tony is a drunken letch who freely insults, demeans and sexually harasses those around him, we like him because at his core he is a really good guy with a heart of gold. And he shows that heart again and again. But good villains need the antithesis of that; they need a moment in which we see just how despicable they can be, so we, as an audience, enjoy watching them get the snot kicked out of them by the protagonist – in this case, Iron Man. But Favreau never really gives us those scenes. He loves his villains – casts incredible actors in their role and lets them have lots of fun chewing up the scenery. But because they never cross the line into true villainy – their beef is usually with Stark himself – we can only kind of enjoy their vanquishing. What I’m talking about doesn’t have to be as big as Grand Moff Tarkin’s ordering the destruction of Alderaan – it can be as beautifully succinct as The Joker’s pencil disappearing trick in THE DARK KNIGHT or Hans Gruber’s shooting Ellis to prove a point to John McClane in DIE HARD; it just has to be emotionally powerful enough for us to realize why this guy has to go down in the best way possible.
    Many folks referred to this moment as Shooting the dog. Since Favreau never let Ivan do anything really lowdown and despicable, you not only understand him – you kind of feel for him. And you get the impression that if Tony and Ivan would just sit down and share a bottle of scotch and a couple of high priced whores, that they could work their **** out and Tony could offer Ivan a job building insane **** for Stark Industries. Happy ending for one and all.
    Well, Favreau doesn’t seem to have that problem anymore.
    COWBOYS & ALIENS introduces us to not one, but two, despicable characters who, by the end of the first act, you loathe to their core. Each does something that makes you want to reach through the screen and smack the **** out of them – and while one of them repeatedly gets his comeuppance, the second is untouchable and becomes ever more sinister with every bullet he dodges. Making things ever more interesting, these two villains aren’t even the film’s true antagonists – merely forces against which our hero, an amnesiac played by Daniel Craig, must overcome (and possibly even work alongside) in order to survive and discover his true identity.
    Craig is at his best here, giving the same kind of rugged-but-blank scoundrel-with-a-heart-of-gold performance that we saw out of him in CASINO ROYALE. Likewise Paul Dano continues to prove that he is one of the very best actors of his generation, turning in a blisteringly smarmy performance as a town ruffian. Meanwhile Sam Rockwell does everything he does well as the spineless local bartender and the legendary Clancy Brown plays the town preacher with all the gruff cool you want out of a Clancy Brown performance. But the real story here is Harrison Ford. Let’s face it, we love Harrison Ford, but he hasn’t done anything to the hilt in a long time.
    Until now.
    Here, Ford is given a meaty, dark role that plays perfectly to his strengths as an actor, while allowing him to continue his graceful slide into the elder statesman style supporting roles that action great Charlton Heston so readily moved into as he aged out of leading man status. Ford delivers with all the grim authority and sardonic derision that he’s been trying to find a place for in recent roles, but found it hard to find a solid footing. Favreau somehow found the primer, and wrested from him his best performance in over a decade – even this early in the film.
    The first act is perfectly constructed. Everything works. Despite being an early workprint, Favreau doesn’t have a single second of fat in this part of the film. It unfolds like a classic western, delivering violent twist after violent twist until it goes all FROM DUSK TILL DAWN and swerves into being a completely different kind of movie altogether. The chemistry between the cast is undeniable and the action – even sans expensive effects – was top notch. If Favreau can keep up the level of intensity he shows in the first act throughout the second and third, then this will no doubt be next summer’s epic success story.
    July cannot come soon enough. Keep this on your radar.
    Until next time friends,
    Massawyrm

    Restore the roar – MGM hunts for talent as it eyes Chap. 11 exit
    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/business/restore_the_roar_wNP15pxpTN4s5D8e6GGb2I
    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer is preparing to roar back to life and is already on the prowl for top talent to help revive the studio and ramp up film production.
    After 18 months of turmoil, the long-suffering film studio is poised to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as early as this week under the management of Hollywood executives Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum.
    Already the studio’s new co-chiefs are looking for senior management to help reposition the studio and revive production on two large-scale films, the 23rd “James Bond” installment and the long-delayed “The Hobbit.”
    Barber and Birnbaum are searching for a president to help lead the studio and are talking to Qualia Capital’s Ken Shapiro as well as other Hollywood veterans, sources told The Post.
    “He is a candidate,” one insider said.
    MGM will also need to hire a head of production, a role previously filled by Mary Parent, who exited shortly before the studio filed a prepackaged bankruptcy plan on Nov. 3 that wiped out some $5 billion of debt.
    As part of the plan, JPMorgan Chase agreed to provide a $500 million loan facility to fund MGM’s operations and productions.
    While insiders say the studio is set for now, some bankers believe it won’t be long before MGM will have to raise additional funds. The 23rd James Bond alone could cost as much as $200 million to produce.
    “I suspect its deeply possible they’ll look for additional financing,” said Stephen Prough, a founder of Salem Partners, an investment bank specializing in media and entertainment. “They have been very successful at getting money on Wall Street.
    “Their first step is solidifying the team there. Then the other thing they’ll do is to start looking hard at franchises that can easily be monetized: Bond, The Hobbit and ‘The Thomas Crown Affair.’”
    MGM also recently appointed a nine-person board that includes executives from traditional and online media, including Fredric Reynolds, the ex-chief financial officer of CBS, and Jason Hirschhorn, the former co-president of MySpace.
    MGM’s new chapter follows months of dramatic plot twists involving on-again off-again merger talks with Lionsgate and a takeover battle with activist investor Carl Icahn. The company has been all but closed for business for months.
    Despite its quick trip through bankruptcy court, there’s more drama ahead. One source close to MGM expects the studio to lay off as many as 75 people as it restructures its operations.
    MGM will also need to find production partners to distribute two completed films — “Red Dawn,” and Joss Whedon’s “Cabin in the Woods” — that were held up by the studio’s financial woes.
    “They’re going to have to do a lot of cleanup and assess all the damage and figure things out,” the source said. “Who’s leaving? How many staff they have to let go? What they’ll do with ‘Red Dawn’ and ‘Cabin in the Woods,’ and how they’ll be distributed?”

    Recall ‘Days in Stockholm’ with Stieg Larsson’s friend

    http://www.usatoday.com/life/books/reviews/2010-12-09-stieg09_ST_N.htm

    Fans slavering after even the tiniest biographical morsel about the late Swede who created the girl with the dragon tattoo will relish Kurdo Baksi’s Stieg Larsson: Our Days in Stockholm.
    Not a full-length bio in any sense, this quirky, oddly compelling memoir presents Larsson as a man consumed by a passion to battle racial and gender discrimination. Egalitarian to the bone, he was a workaholic who wrote fiction for fun but knew it was good. On the surface unassuming, he intended to change the world.
    The way he lived ? 24/7 junk food, cigarettes, plus insomnia ? explains in part his death at 50 of a heart attack in 2004, after submitting his first three novels to his publisher.
    Born in Kurdistan in 1965, Baksi moved to Sweden in 1980. He met Larsson in 1992 because of their commitment to fighting the growing anti-immigrant movement in Sweden. Both edited political magazines and were targeted by far right and neo-Nazi groups.
    Work was their bond, and the two argued over issues such as should Larsson have allowed a teen volunteer to endanger himself by infiltrating a neo-Nazi group. Although he touches on Larsson’s childhood, Baksi does not go into Larsson’s private life as an adult, nor the ongoing inheritance battle between Larsson’s brother and father vs. his companion, Eva Gabrielsson. But Baksi ? who is featured in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest ? offers lots of insight into the books.
    Among the memoir’s details:

    ・At 15, Larsson saw three friends raping a girl he knew but did nothing. When he apologized later, the victim refused it. “I shall never forgive you,” she said.

    ・He was rejected by the Stockholm College of Journalism.

    ・Larsson resembled hacker Lisbeth Salander more than journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Like his heroine, Larsson was suspicious of authority, disliked discussing his childhood, and had amazing research skills.

    Success wouldn’t have changed Larsson, Baksi says. “He had no interest in leading a life of luxury.” Instead, Larsson would have used his fortune to continue battling intolerance.

I think your assessment of his type is wrong. You don’t know what he really likes.

    Daniel showed what he likes and with who he spent many years and how long he was with beautiful women. that speaks loudly. Eva Green is a cat but tell me what he did not ask her out? too much beautiful for him? Manly Satsuki was better, yes? he said hello to many beauties but still dated one ugly Satsuki. That speak loud too. He is simply blind and drunk always.

    if Daniel really dumped Satsuki so he has a chance to meet woman of his life, it is his last chance before he turns 65 age.
    question is he really wants her or returns to Satsuki until Xmas.

    it is really good news, sounds bombastically, optimistically and so confident. so MGM managed it in the end and is not sold, investors came and want to finance the movies. Babs Broccoli must be happy like a flea, and over the moon that her Bond is funded. she had to postpone Bond this summer but next time she will produce her bondmovie.
    Wink to MGM and Babs.
    is Daniel already looking forward to make Bond?? Ha??

    The tweeter was in London and he was spotted in the lobby of the Soho Hotel in London. There are Soho House Hotels all over the world. Tweeters have been spotting him in London over the past couple of weeks, so he must be on that break from filming Dragon Tattoo and spending his free time in London. But I feel like a picture of him and Rachel together would be worth quite a bit of money to a paparazzi these days, and so far none have turned up.

    2., 23.Bond was planned to be made this summer but was postponed but I was right in that it was planned for this summer but some posters did not believe it.when producers postponed Bond so they before planned to make it. If they worked according to plan, so this november Bond had premiers.

    3. I said Daniel will not be with Satsuki this fall and he really dumped her. Chacha, at this I was right like hell.

    4. ONE poster insisted on that as MGM put on auction so will be sold but I came with saying that MGM will not be sold to anyone but some investors come to provide financial help. The investors really came, hey, and now they finance MGM. I also said these new investors get maximately a small percent in MGM.

    5. Babs Broccoli missed money for 23.Bond budget and I said some investors will contact her. Hey, he contacted her, his name is Willy.

    6. I said Dream House will meet problems and really this movie now needs reshoots but dear actor Daniel Craig is not available to finish it until December and they hope that he comes at least next year to the set to finish the movie – Hey, I deeply doubt about it.
    ………..
    Now I bet on that C&A will be postponed because of the same reason like Dream House. To be honest and according to reviews, C&A is not well accepted by fans and critics and producers will need reshoots. just wait and you will see it with your own eyes as you will be reading the article about postponed C&A. Only more time than it comes as news.

    Ron Howard eyes the road ahead on ‘Dark Tower’ series
    http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured/posts/ron-howard-eyes-the-road-ahead-on-dark-tower-series

    I am not afraid to admit that I am excited.

    I find that I get seriously hyped up for fewer and fewer films as I get older, and some of that is a reaction to the way the business works these days, and some of that is a desire to be surprised. Whatever the case, I remember when I was younger, and the mere mention of a film in development was enough to get me seriously hyperactive for days, talking about it, thinking about it, imagining what it might be.

    I find so much of what studios consider “development” these days to be cynical, and that saddens me. It makes me wish I could unlearn what I know about the process sometimes, because it’s hard to tune things out. And it’s hard not to become transitively cynical when they announce that they’re going to film something you love, particularly when you’re not sure that the thing can be filmed in the first place.

    I don’t often fly this particular freak flag, but if you could call me a fanboy for anything, you could call me a fanboy for the work of Stephen King. These days, I’d say it’s settled into a general appreciation for the man’s continued skills and for the massive shadow he has cast over the industry as a whole, and I don’t find myself compelled to rush out and buy each new book the second it comes out. There was a time, though, when I absolutely felt that way, and I’d say that era came to a close when King finally wrapped up his sprawling, messy, remarkable Dark Tower series.

    For years, I believed there was no way for him to wrap up the series in print, and when it became clear that he was going to pull it off, it reignited my passion for King and the massive interconnected fictional landscape he has created.

    When JJ Abrams and Damon Lindelof were briefly flirting with the property, I was intrigued. That sounded like a good match of talent and source material, but in which format? Film? Television? I had a hard time imagining how they might get their hands around such an unwieldy and dense piece of writing, and in the end, it seems like Lindelof and Abrams felt the same way. They let their claim on things lapse.

    Enter Ron Howard and Akiva Goldsman.

    And from the moment they’ve been announced as the new filmmakers steering the material, it’s been a controversial choice. Before you even consider what Howard brings to the table as a director, there’s the Goldsman factor to consider. Yes, the man’s an Oscar winner, and I’m sure “A Beautiful Mind” has fans and defenders. I am not among their ranks. I’ve read a whole lot of Goldsman’s work on the page over the years, so please bear in mind I’m not just judging him based on finished films. I think Goldsman is actually pretty strong in the structure department. He’s not a bad technical writer. I just don’t think he’s got any poetry in him. His creations may get up off the table and walk, but I don’t feel like they ever dance.

    Howard is a guy I like a lot, a director who has made a lot of solid movies. I am not passionate about Howard’s work, but that’s never been the kind of guy he is or the kinds of films he makes. Early on, I was a fan of the comedies he made like “Splash” and “Night Shift,” and I thought he demonstrated a knack for loose, winning performances and genre-hopping. Over time, I’ve enjoyed many of his films, and not enjoyed just as many. It often just comes down to the material he starts with, since he’s able to put together top-notch collaborators.

    The reason I’m ready to hand myself over to pure anticipation and stop micro-managing my expectations is because it sounds to me like Ron Howard is a man in love. He gave a pretty extensive sneak peek at his plans for the saga to The Los Angeles Times today, and he doesn’t just say the right things about paying service to the source material… there’s an attitude that comes through clearly in the piece. Howard is being seduced, gradually losing himself in this sprawling fantasy world of the Territories and Roland and the Man in Black. It sounds like he’s starting to really feel the world he’s trying to create on film.

    I’m intrigued by the way they’re planning to adapt the full story, and I think it’s a bold piece of cross-media storytelling that they’re attempting. There will be a big-budget theatrical film to kick things off and set up the story. Then they’re going to move to television to tell a chunk of the story, and once they’ve finished a finite arc, they’ll make a second big-budget film. One more run of television episodes will move all the final chess pieces into place, and they’ll wrap it up with one final epic movie. That’s audacious, and it’s a strong choice to break up the seven books into five distinct pieces of entertainment. There’s a lot of room to adapt, and I’m curious to see how much the films and television shows dip into the meta-textual reality that is a big part of the later chapters of the story.

    Ron Howard is already thinking about who has to play his Gunslinger, and he acknowledges that the fans seem particularly passionate about Viggo Mortensen. I think there are a number of guys out there who might be right for it, and it’s all about who wants to make that commitment. It helps that there’s a big chunk of the story that is a flashback to the younger years of Roland and his friends, so the lead actor won’t have to carry every single minute of the series. It’ll be a while before they actually start casting, but it’s good to know that names like Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman, and Jon Hamm are in the mix.

    I could play picky fanboy over every single little tidbit we learn about these, but that’s no fun. I’m going to just cross my fingers and put my faith in this team and hope that Howard and Goldsman bring in some passionate, smart people to help them flesh out all of this storytelling, and that they enjoy their time in that other world, their time on the road.

    The Dark Tower is out there somewhere, and I’m ready to believe that one day, maybe even one day soon, we’ll actually get there.

    _____________________________________
    I have to put a smile. Really are so sure? and tell me what is this:

    “One of the footage presentations this year was the first 40 minutes of Cowboys & Aliens, Jon Favreau’s big summer blockbuster for 2011. It was incomplete, without FX and obviously missing insert shots and some other stuff. This makes it hard to judge what I was looking at, but I can say one thing:
    Jon, make this 40 minutes into nothing more than 18 minutes.
    What we saw was essentially exactly what was shown at Comic Con, except stretched out. Really stretched out. I am a fan of the concept of Cowboys & Aliens, and I am a fan of Favreau and of Daniel Craig, but what we saw was way too flat and way too empty.”

    “Now, they were very, very specific that we shouldn’t get too particular in what we saw. Favreau basically got down on hands and knees and said, “if you write on the Internet, you can say you liked it – or didn’t like it – but please don’t go any further than that.”

    “I didn’t know exactly what to think of the teaser for COWBOYS & ALIENS when I first watched it. I saw the footage at Comic-Con ’10 and thought it was interesting enough but since I have yet to read the graphic novel that it’s based on, the concept of western meets sci-fi, which has been done before, has now turned into confusion as to what exactly Harrison Ford‘s role in this and how on earth are they going to pull this off without losing its edge or looking anything less than cool… because western by itself or sci-fi by itself is cool.. but a combo of both, only once in a while you’d see it work effectively.”

    Via LA Times, Director Jon Favreau is worried that his adaptation, COWBOYS & ALIENS which is scheduled to arrive next summer will have a hard time at the box office in the midst of all the other blockbusters that are crowding that season and I don’t blame him. Just think about it.. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON, GREEN LANTERN, THOR, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, CARS 2, KUNG FU PANDA 2, THE SMURFS 3D, RISE OF THE APES, SUPER 8, THE HANGOVER 2, SPY KIDS 4: ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD and many more..

    slashfilm Says:

    Reactions:
    It’s far too early to make any snap judgments about the film, but I certainly admire Favreau’s approach. The vibe I was getting from the footage was that it was like a dead serious western with Spielbergian flair, which matches Favreau’s own description of what he was going for to a tee. Some of the explosions looked a little cheesy and fake, drawing attention to the environment being very obviously a movie set, but that could easily change with some tweaking in the editing room. The shot that sold me the most was the one featured in the image above, with Craig utilizing his Iron Man-esque gadgetry to take down an alien ship.
    My only hesitation to the material was, surprisingly, Harrison Ford. On top of looking so very old, he also came across far sillier than he should’ve, like he either wasn’t trying or didn’t know what he was doing. It was only one scene though, so I’ll reserve judgment until I see the finished film.
    “next summer is going to be incredible. so many cool films coming out.”

    “Harrison Ford is finished. He’s been making **** films for years now. Why doesn’t someone advise him to bow out gracefully now before his reputation is damaged beyond repair. It’s like he forgot how to act or just stopped caring, either way it’s painfully obvious the guy should be doing something else now. Like Golf.”

    “I’ve come to the conclusion that Ford just plays Ford. He can’t really act at all, he’s an awesome guy, but acting isn’t his strong suit.”

    “Good theory.
    But what’s to be said about Nicolas Cage, who can’t act and isn’t nowhere near being cool guy? How we’d explain his career?”

    “Poor Harrison… An old man who looks… Old! What a sin!”

    “Favreau should cut scenes in from ‘The Frisco Kid’ for that authentic Harrison Ford western flasbacks. I’m looking forward to this if an actor can play old with action then the western has a good history and precedent of aging stars kicking butt”

    “These comments about Ford make me think that maybe more people would have liked Indy 4 if it has been called “Indiana Jones and the Spacemen” or something just as obvious. Maybe not.”

They’ve only been shooting Cowboys and Aliens for four weeks, but Favreau worked hard to finish cutting together some footage in hopes of giving fans a taste of its tone and style.”

    Come on, you’re a blogger, you know by now why these things happen. Movies aren’t pliant enough for a director to say “Hey, studio, I’m gonna take a break from shooting to cut together some stuff for my fans to show at Comic-Con, now give me money to do that! Movies go to comic-con for nerd-cred and prime business opportunities, and it’s a studio decision. I’m sure some of it’s for the fans, but promotional mountains are moved for business reasons.

    if Cowboys and Aliens want to hold their water and compare favourably among many super strong blockbusters coming in the summer 2011 so they should make something with the footage necessarily, also with the assed poster and the movie. I am still shaking my head in disbelief that assed poster would convince me to see C&A. some people hard laughed that someone spent time to retouch an ass. Favreau can be happy there is no Batman who grabs all cinemas in Europe and the US.

    No wonder Favreau is afraid of big film competitors and if he really reads comments and reviews on the Internet.. so amen for him, catch his heart. Harrison is not like before, bygones are bygones.
    at the beginning Favreau showed his biceps and was too confident that he got Ford and Craig into his movie. now he is afraid, one dandy.

    2010: Year of the Splitterati: The celeb break-ups keep coming. But what’s the truth behind the ‘still good friends’ spin?
    In the past week alone, Scarlett Johansson, Anna Friel and Liz Hurley announced their relationships have ended. It seems 2010 is the year of the celebrity break up. So who are the Splitterati, and when they gush about ‘remaining friends’, what do they really mean?

    NOVEMBER
    10. RACHEL WEISZ and DARREN ARONOFSKY

    Who: Cambridge-educated actress, 40, and her New York director husband, 41.

    Since Rachel Weisz’s split from Darren Aronofsky she has been linked to Daniel Craig

    How long: Engaged for five years, with a four-year-old son, Henry.

    Surprise split? Yes, although both have refused to speak about the romance.

    She said: ‘I have had some good relationships with men, but it’s not easy to find the right one.’

    The end: Announced in November.

    The spoils: She is remaining in the New York apartment with their son.

    The spin: ‘They remain close friends and are committed to raising their son.’

    The reality: There are rumours that Weisz is now entangled with Daniel Craig, with whom she appears in forthcoming film Dream House.

    On the rebound? No one official.

    An inter-galactic twist on the cowboy tale

    http://www.couriermail.com.au/ipad/an-inter-galactic-twist-on-the-cowboy-tale/story-fn6ck8la-1225974061718

    PUT down the bows and arrows. Cowboys and Indians are so 2010. These days, it’s all about aliens and cowboys.
    John Wayne versus ET. Spock versus Steve McQueen. Shane versus Zsa Zsa Gabor.

    That’s right, courtesy of Jon “Iron Man” Favreau, our inter-galactic cousins will be trading bullets/lasers with battle-weary gunslingers.

    Based on a graphic novel of the same (unimaginative) name and slated for release in mid-2011, Cowboys and Aliens will pitch a mysterious alien force against a group of frontiersmen led by Daniel Craig.

    Craig plays Jake Lonergan, a rugged fellow who wakes up in the desert with complete amnesia (possibly as a result of too many “firewaters”) and a weird bracelet around his wrist (which definitely won’t turn out to be some sort of weapon against the little green men).

    Start of sidebar. Skip to end of sidebar.
    .End of sidebar. Return to start of sidebar.

    Lonergan stumbles upon the town of Absolution, where he encounters the menacing Woodrow Dolarhyde, played by the
    eternally grumpy Harrison Ford (above).

    The last time Ford wore a notable hat in a movie with aliens, fans and critics weren’t so impressed (Read: He ruined Indiana Jones).

    While the pair spend a lot of time eye-ballin’ each other and spitting tobacco, they are forced to unite when a hostile new threat emerges from the skies.

    It’s not Kyle Sandilands in a Qantas A380. We’re talking a bunch of Sigourney Weaver-biting, home-phoning, Will Smith-chasing ET visitors.

    Unusual pairings we’d love to see

    1
    Zombies and the Matrix: Dull, emotionless creatures with a penchant for mono-syllables and cliches take on hordes of zombies in this action extravaganza (now with extra slow motion).

    2
    Top Gun and Avatar: A relatively cheap mashup, TG&A would merely require filmmakers to apply a blue filter to Tom Cruise’s ’80s classic, which already features 65 minutes of tall, shirtless dudes.

    3
    Bambi and the Deerhunter: Sounds like a **** Cheney-esque “accident” waiting to happen but this unusual pairing could make for an interesting buddy movie as both are clearly suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

    4
    Monsters and Aliens: An exciting, fun-for-the-whole-family animated feature where a bride, oh wait . . . never mind.

    5
    Vampires and Sex and the City: Ancient beings immune to the ageing process search for fresh prey around New York only to run into a pack of vampires.

    6
    Kill Bill and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure: This was never going to end well. RIP Bill.

    7
    Every single Keanu Reeves character and the Rancor from Star Wars: This one, however, will end well.

    8
    Ageing action stars and young up-and-comings: Wouldn’t it be awesome if Sly, Bruce Willis, Arnie and Jet Li were in a movie with Jason Statham and Terry Crews? There’s no way that would be incredibly disappointing.

    9
    Eat, Pray, Love and Dear John: A novel way of punishing violent offenders in overcrowded prisons.

    10
    Snakes, Samuel L. Jackson and Qantas: Includes footage of the world’s most awkward press conference.

    LONDON. After much hassle, it seems that James Bond returns to the silver screen. But it does not look as if Daniel Craig will play the secret agent.

    At first the production of the 23rd James Bond movie was stopped indefinitely because the film company MGM was in serious debt. But after a deal with Spyglass Entertainment it looks positive for the film, which may premiere in November 2012.

    However, it can be without Daniel Craig, writes the Daily Star.

    Recording clashes
    Craig is currently busy playing Mikael Blomqvist in the Hollywood remake of the “Millennium”-films. If working with Bond resumes after the new year, the two recordings will clash the newspaper said.
    Published 19 dec 2010 15:23

    http://www.deadline.com/2010/12/mgm-restructure-complete-roger-birnbaum-and-gary-barber-take-reins-with-500-million-to-spend/

    LOS ANGELES, CA, December 20, 2010 – Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. today announced that the company’s restructuring has become effective, with exit financing of $500 million in place. The company’s “pre-packaged” plan of reorganization (the “Plan”) was confirmed on December 2, 2010, by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

    “MGM is emerging from one of the most challenging periods of its storied history. We are honored and inspired at the opportunity of leading one of Hollywood’s most iconic studios into its next generation of unforgettable filmmaking, global television production and distribution, and aggressively pursuing, developing and exploiting new digital entertainment platforms,” said Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, Co-Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of MGM. “Beginning today, MGM is a stronger, more competitive company, with a solid financial foundation and a bright future. We look forward to working with MGM’s dedicated employees to build upon this company’s legacy.”

    MGM has a significantly improved financial position with secured lenders exchanging approximately $5 billion, including accrued interest and fees, for most of the equity in the company. As part of its exit financing, MGM raised $500 million to fund operations, including production of a new slate of films and television series. JPMorgan arranged MGM exit financing.

    MGM emerges from bankruptcy after raising $500 million, considers NBC’s Jeff Gaspin for final board seat

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/entertainmentnewsbuzz/2010/12/mgm-emerges-from-bankruptcy-after-raising-500-million.html

    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s long nightmare is over.

    The studio, which 18 months ago began seeking a way to escape a crippling debt load that reached $5 billion, has exited bankruptcy with new owners and new chief executives.

    MGM’s reorganization plan that wiped out its debt, handed over virtually all of its equity to creditors and installed Spyglass Entertainment chiefs Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum as CEOs was approved by a New York bankruptcy court three weeks ago. However, the company couldn’t complete the Chapter 11 process until it closed on a $500-million line of credit that will be used to fund operations and the production of new movies. That was accomplished Monday.

    JPMorgan Chase arranged the financing and previously said in court documents that it would contribute $75 million of its own money to the facility.

    As it prepares to restart operations in the new year, MGM is also finalizing its board of directors. With eight people already selected, NBC Universal Television Entertainment Chairman Jeff Gaspin is in talks to take the ninth and final position, people familiar with the matter said. Gaspin, who will soon exit NBC once its acquisition by Comcast Corp. is complete, would join several other experienced Hollywood hands on the MGM board, including former Pixar Chief Financial Officer Ann Mather, former CBS Chief Financial Officer Fred Reynolds and former MySpace President Jason Hirschhorn. Gaspin declined to comment on whether he would join the board.

    The other seats are held by representatives of MGM’s largest stakeholders, which previously owned much of its debt. They include Anchorage Capital, Highland Capital Management, Solus Alternative Asset Management and billionaire investor Carl Icahn.

    According to its bankruptcy plan, the new MGM will release seven to eight movies a year beginning in 2012. It will also co-finance “The Hobbit” with Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. The movie begins production this winter. According to previous court filings, MGM will seek a lender to provide the $265 million to $275 million the studio estimates it will owe for its half of “The Hobbit.”

    In addition to the $500-million credit facility, MGM has built up its cash on hand this year as it halted film production and received forbearances on the interest payments for its debt.

    Barber and Birnbaum expect to slim down MGM from more than 400 employees to about 320. They began that process last Friday with layoffs of about 50 employees.

    As for the article, I read it (Expressen) few days ago. I thought it was retread an old article, nothing new…
    When MGM announced the release date, some presses mentioned a tight schedule of Daniel. Not that Expressen was made up, but the report was light on hard facts. Read the Variety article :)

    MGM eyes next James Bond film – With $500 million secured, studio looks to 007
    http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118029334?refCatId=13
    (Excerpt)
    The most likely candidate for immediate spending will be the 23rd James Bond movie, with Daniel Craig in his third outing as 007. Insiders believe MGM may turn to Sony for co-financing, as it did on “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace,” or sell off some of major foreign territories.

    007 questions now that MGM is out of bankruptcy
    http://hmssweblog.wordpress.com/2010/12/21/007-questions-now-that-mgm-is-out-of-bankruptcy/

    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer exited bankruptcy on Dec. 20 in a slimmer form. So what better time for 007 questions about how the development affects the future of the 007 film franchise?

    001. Is Daniel Craig coming back as James Bond?
    We know Craig has said he wants to return. In fact, he has said it more than once. We know he’s a favorite of the co-boss of Eon Productions, Barbara Broccoli, who has been quoted as saying Craig is the best Bond ever. With MGM’s financial plight this year, Eon has been mum on virtually everything. The answer may be an easy one but the answer still hasn’t really been given.

    002. Is Sam Mendes really going to direct Bond 23?
    Mendes’s ex-wife, Kate Winslet, says he is, even the point she’s going to move to London so the director can see his kids during filming. But Mendes himself in a Wall Street Journal called such talk “speculation” even after his publicist confirmed the story. Again, the answer may be an easy one, but the time has come for a little candor.

    003. Who’s going to write Bond 23?
    The grand experiment of hiring prestigious screenwriter Peter Morgan was a washout, mostly for reasons that had nothing to do with MGM’s financial plight. Eon announced Morgan’s hiring months before he actually got around to writing anything. In subsequent interviews, he has said he’s happy to have washed his hands of the project and was never that enthusiastic about Bond in the first place. Do Neal Purvis and Robert Wade press on (the Eon press release said Morgan, Purvis and Wade would write Bond 23)? Have the Wade-Purvis duo done any work? Or is somebody else going to get hired?

    004. Who is MGM going to help finance and distribute Bond 23?
    MGM, in its bankruptcy filing said it planned to see a partner to co-finance Bond 23. Who’s it going to be? Also, MGM’s plan is to exit distribution and be primarily a maker of TV shows and movies. What studio ends up distributing Bond 23? Sony Corp.’s Columbia Pictures brand distributed Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Does Columbia pull a repeat? Or does somebody else step in?

    005. Can Eon Productions actually make Bond 23 for a November 2012 release date?
    In the MGM bankruptcy filing, the studio said it wants Bond 23 out in November 2012. MGM, though, needs Eon Productions to actually make the movie. Do the problems with the Bond 23 script process demonstrate broader problems at Eon? Or was that a bit of bad luck?

    006. Can Eon Productions actually produce 007 movies on an bi-annual basis?
    MGM’s bankruptcy filing said it also wants Bond movies to come out on a regular, every-other-year schedule. Is Eon capable of that? Assuming Bond 23 comes out in November 2012, the Bond franchise will have been in hiatus for more years than not between 1989′s Licence to Kill and Bond 23. Barbara Broccoli and half-brother Michael G. Wilson seem to have trouble keeping up the pace of Eon co-founder Albert R. Broccoli.

    007. When can we get answers to the other questions?
    Eon has stayed quiet because a) that’s how it operates and b) the MGM financial situation. But it has been so quiet, it’s beginning to look ridiculous. When the director’s (excuse us, would-be director’s) ex-wife provides more information, Eon loses control of the message. That’s Public Relations 101. Maybe shortly after the first of the year, Eon can start trying to get back that control with a little basic information.

    UPDATE: Variety in a story it has about MGM, has this nugget:

    MGM has been working up plans for a 2012 yearlong commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the first Bond pic, 1962′s “Doctor No,” so the studio will probably move as quickly as possible to lock down Craig and to secure a director. Sam Mendes has long been rumored to be the leading candidate to helm.

    to join to Puvis and Wade. Things seem to getting fast and faster. The swedish article talked about Bond and his coming after new year and that would collide with other movie Dragon Tattoo. But I said if Dragon Tattoo was postponed so Bond would start. They say there is no Bond script but I think Wade and Purvis were not iddle all the time but wrote preliminary version and then there is new writer who came after Peter Morgan, so no problem to give a job to writers.

    In other words, hang tight — but not too tight. An official Bond announcement is looking likelier and likelier for the near future.”

    Daniel initially refused a part of Blomkvist and if he was available so the studio and eon probably make things surrounding Bond and pre-production more quickly.

    Nothing is happening on the set of Dragon Tattoo? Rooney Mara is training martial arts and riding a motorcycle and all the stuff but if she has break so it is not good, she should be always focused on training rightly like an athlet is focused on his discipline… otherwise she can have a small spill on a motorcycle again. People from the set have said she was not injuried but had a small spill on her bike and was fine that day.
    Why they created rumours about her injury? or is it a half true?

    dan Says:

    According to Aftonbladet, (via Rooney Mara Source) the new Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara, has injured herself in the shoulder “so severely” that production on David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will be delayed by several days.

    “But what amuses me is an interesting irony of the delay. It could potentially free up Daniel Craig to zip back to Ontario and do some reshoots on Dream House.”

    But the whole story is def hot because Rachel left her fiance and father of her child. She must be really in love with someone.
    Did she called dan in the middle of the year to tell him that she fell in love with him during shooting and is now breaking up with darren?
    I don’t think that dan would break up with sats for no reason. They were together for 5 years and engaged (!). Isn’t she pissed?!

    Cowboys & Aliens? Cowboys & Aliens? If ever there was a title for a movie that indicated an inevitable hokiness and relegation to the land where B-movies go to die, this is it.

    But hold on! For goodness’ sake! For this trailer is actually a thing of beauty, and bodes superbly well for what might have been the surprise hit of next year – except it’s not a surprise any more, whoops… Iron Man director Jon Favreau seems to have made a film steeped in the history of the Western rather than opting for a more cheesy approach, as might have been expected. This unexpected grittiness and sense of scale serves to emphasise a brilliant sense of forboding when those out-space critters make their presence felt in town, bringing a superbly rendered wave of destruction.

    A light throwaway romp this is not, and with this in mind it’s a brilliant move having the permanently stern-faced Daniel Craig in the lead role, with Harrison Ford’s badass Marshal the sort of character that might just revitalise his career. If this is half as good as promised, you can see why Favreau – with the shackles loose – decided to bail on Iron Man 3. So, whose side will you be on when sundown arrives? (Release date: August 12 2011)

    The pics for “Cowboys and Aliens”
    http://www.davidrambow.com/?p=13
    Two worlds are set to collide next summer in the movie “Cowboys and Aliens,” under the command of Jon Favreau. The “Iron Man” director is combining the mystery of a 1873 time period Western complete with the thrills of an alien invasion movie, with sci-fi and hero legend Harrison Ford as the lead.
    The people of Dreamworks/Imagine motion pictures saw the metal and glass plates I did of actor Josh Brolin for Paramount’s remake of TRUE GRIT, and as a result I was hired to produce sixteen copies of 6th plate sized aluminotypes of actress Abigail Spencer for Favreau’s movie. (Thanks and a tip of my hat to pal Dave Baumann, who suggested me for both jobs). Sounded to me like “easy money” for a static copy job for a a couple hours at night on July 31st. I was plagued with an assortment of chemical problems due to the hot/humid weather here, and the 30 second per plate exposure times made it into a long 6 hour session! I ran over 30 plates to produce the necessary sixteen I was hired to make. As usual, my time estimates were WAY too low for the work it took me to get these. Oh well, at least in the end the final products are nice crisp representations they all should be happy with.

    Favreau, whose previous films were Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and they’ve been shooting the to-be-released in 2011 feature for a month. He called the movie a “by the book Western,” in the vein of John Ford, which will definitely be in 2D. (Why no 3D? He just doesn’t think you can shoot a Western in digital.) And he said his scifi influences include Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Alien, and Predator. “We wanted it to look like practical effects, with minimal CGI,” he added. And it really worked.

    Along with the rest of the interested world I am wondering how this movie will play out. Will this be hard science fiction, or more fantastical like the Indiana Jones series? What will the aliens look like? Is Harrison Ford actually playing a bad guy? And Daniel Craig as a cowboy? I predict that this film, based on a comic book by Scott Rosenberg, is going to be mind-blowingly awesome when it comes out this time next year.

    Several scenes were previewed recently at the July Comic-Con. They include:

    The first clip opens with Zeke Johnson (Daniel Craig) riding his horse into a tiny old west town of Absolution, accompanied by a scruffy dog. He looks wary, and his face is covered in grime. Seeing nobody around, he slips into a house and begins to clean up. Immediately, we notice that he has a bulky, steampunk-looking wristband on one arm; then he pulls aside his shirt to reveal a deep, bloody bullet wound. As he’s cleaning that, the house’s owner pokes a shotgun into his ear and he’s forced to put his hands up.

    The man says to Zeke, “Only two kinds of people get shot: Criminals and victims. Which one are you?”
    “I don’t know,” Zeke replies.

    Next time we see him, Zeke is in jail and a scruffy teenager in the next cell is spitting on him, saying, “I want to see you suffer for a long time.” Finally, after a few more seconds of torment, Zeke gets up, grabs the kid by the scruff of the neck, and smashes him unconscious against the bars dividing their two cells. So Zeke is a tough character. And when the lawmen arrive, they tell him he’s been charged with murder and he’s being taken for a trial – chained to the snotty kid he knocked out.

    The two of them have been bundled into an armored carriage when a large group of armed men ride out of the night and into town carrying torches. Their leader is Col. Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford), and he’s a venomous bad guy who refuses to hear the pleas of his son, who turns out to be the snot-nosed kid who spat on Zeke.

    Pointing at Zeke, Woodrow says, “That’s the son of a ***** who stole my gold.” He wants to snatch Zeke out of the carriage right that minute to find out where his gold is, but he’s interrupted when the horizon begins to glimmer with lights. It’s a very Close Encounters-esque looking UFO, which zooms toward the town, fragments into several ships which disappear, then reappear directly overhead, shooting blue lasers and blowing up the town house by house. Fires erupt from windows, people run screaming (including Sam Rockwell), and the jail carriage is knocked over. Zeke and the kid scramble out and we see Zeke’s wristband has grown to cover his lower arm. It’s also glowing blue. He aims it at the ships, and shoots out a beam of light that brings one down in a haze of dust and fire.
    A hush falls over the town as everybody stares at the fallen ship, looking a little like a TIE fighter surrounded by mounds of displaced dirt. Woodrow is standing next to Zeke, who is still in a fighting stance, his arm outstretched. His wristband suddenly closes back up, becoming the small band we saw earlier. The two men exchange a significant glance, their faces lit by UFO fire.

    He literally got rid of sats if something happend during shooting with rachel.
    ——————————–
    Satsuki and Daniel walked through LA showing off the rings on their fingers at the beginning of this year, still were together after saying bye bye to Dream House, then walked through Manhtattan and purchased that appartment in NY. i do no think daniel is enough interesting in rachel, they seem to be friends, nothing more as people would wish more for them. it is funny how satsuki was so proud when showing the rings with Daniel and then something changed there this fall and she found herself in no perspective future. she is older, soon next year she turns 35, i think as there is Xmas so she and Daniel are again together and they hope for better relationship that would turn in marriage. they split several times and reunioned, in this case it will be the same. who says there is the definitive end? Satsuki would call Daniel and cry into receiver that she misses him and he, who spent many years with them, would want to reunion with her.

    “Potential Bond 23 scheduling conflicts have opened up a little with news that director Sam Mendes’ next film, an adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel On Chesil Beach has been postponed due to wary investors who fear the film may post lackluster box office results. Specifically, Mendes’ last three films have not performed well despite good reviews and critical acclaim. A spokesperson for Mendes’ company Neal Street Productions said, “It has been postponed. It all happened very quickly. Pre-production work over-ran. There need to be leaves on the trees.”
    ___________________
    this is another movie that was postponed, I know that at least 20 movies that are postponed this time. This one reminds me C&A who will face against many other blockbuster in the summer 2011 and Favreau is already afraid. May he would reshoot scenes to make it more comedic and get better reviews after seeing the trailer.

    I also read that Dragon Tattoo has also not ideal conditions relating to finances. It was only one article about it and then they deleted it. So that Dragon Tattoo would be postponed of this reason – money or for that reason that Rooney Mara doesnt seem to be prepared physically for a part. just see then.

    My God, it is too little money!
    Are you joking?
    American filmmakers usually spend at least $30 million and more to $50- 200 million. However, the swedish version was much cheaper but Americans need more money for locations and filming than $20 million. They called the American version as the big-budget movie but
    $20 million does not make the movie a big-budget movie.
    If they are really not joking about this funny budget so they pack up and get home to the US soon. Box office also says they fund Dragon Tattoo on a small budget.

    Re: split Says:

    @Reena:

    If Daniel and Satsuki did really split I don’t think it would be becasuse of another woman. Satsuki has lived through Daniel being with other women and flirting however it is possible she got tired of it and split from him. OR if the split is real it had to be building up for sometime. Their body language suggests they are very unhappy as a couple so maybe it was just simply time to end it.

    A_Eye 2 months ago in reply to Marco-r

    Swedish movies are pretty ordinary. the actors are good but the second and third movies were pretty much tv movies made on a tv budget. It was a cashgrab of the worst kind, they knew people were going to watch the movies anyways so they didn’t even bother spending some money on them to make them look half decent, say what you will about Hollywood atleast it does indulge in this kind of cheap-skatery when it comes to successful franchises. It’s about time Fincher remakes these movies on a decent $20 million budget.

And if I were stuck anywhere with DAN–we would be having fun every second!! in the loo…under our coats/blankets, in a tent–or with Dan’s tent… deprived i am, yes. blah.

    so he is partying with friends and with daughter? I could have told you that and i don’t even twitter. what do we think he is doing? twittering at home on his vid games? shopping 24/7 (i would!!). Playing with his “picture-frame straightener”? (oh yeah!)

    and, i thought this a long time ago…it would have to be Sats to break things off…..Dan needed her and could, presumably, flirt and date and do just about anyone and still go back to Sats cuz she be dumb to dump all that he got!!! soooo, maybe she had enough. In fact, I wish in my feminstic mind, that it was her that did it. If it was done, that is.

    surry. But Dan is a man and men can be beautiful, wonderful, caring, smart, and still be different in the head about sexxx and loyalty—their genitals(brains) are still on the OUTSIDE of their bodies that always betrays them.

    Daniel Craig’s Bond is brilliant, sexy
    By Sheri Levine, Postmedia News December 23, 2010 9:00 PM

    http://www.timescolonist.com/Daniel+Craig+Bond+brilliant+sexy/4023319/story.html

    Watching Daniel Craig emerge from the ocean in those tight blue swim trunks is a gift in itself. What woman wouldn’t want to spend Christmas Day with the coolest, sexiest James Bond ever?
    That’s really a rhetorical question. Craig is now regarded as either the best Bond ever or the best since Sean Connery, but Craig had to endure heavy criticism before earning such wide praise.
    When it was announced that Craig would take over the role of the famous spy, many fans and critics strongly opposed the choice.
    Daniel who? A website — danielcraigisnotbond.com — was created in protest; people mocked the fact that Craig had to learn how to drive a stick shift for the role; the media dubbed him “blond Bond.”
    Pretty much everyone was betting against Craig’s Bond debut in Casino Royale.
    Craig, already a critically acclaimed and successful actor in his own right, had plenty of film roles to his credit. However, they were mostly in smaller, indie films from the U.K. But when Craig finally debuted as Bond, it didn’t take long for everyone to embrace him as the new, and much improved, secret agent.
    Casino Royale was a re-boot to the Bond franchise, and gave audiences a chance to get reacquainted with a completely different Bond — an early, less cynical Bond, and one trusting enough to allow himself to fall in love.
    Craig also brought a coolness and ruggedness to the character — qualities that had been missing when the role belonged to Pierce Brosnan, who always played Bond as too suave, too perfect.
    Craig’s Bond is an alpha male — an incredibly sexy alpha male; he’s rebellious, cocky, sarcastic, but also effortlessly charming.
    Casino Royale’s “Bond girl” is Vesper Lynd (played perfectly by Eva Green), a smart, feisty foreign-liaison agent assigned to oversee the money MI6 has provided to Bond for his mission — to stop a banker of terrorist organizations from winning a high-stakes poker tournament at Casino Royale.
    But really, this movie is so good, so entertaining, the plot is almost inconsequential. The chemistry between Green and Craig is pitch-perfect, both intense and provocative. The relationship between Bond and his boss M (Judi Dench) is also spot on and offers some laughs.
    This Bond is simply brilliant — and have I mentioned, über sexy?

    In celebrity marriage-land, it was like musical chairs. Kelly Brook split up with Danny Cipriani, the rugby player, in June, seemingly because he was about to move to Oz to play for Melbourne Rebels. They didn’t grieve for long, though. Brook started going out with Glee actor Matthew Morrison, while Danny took up with Jessica Lowndes off Beverley Hills 90210, followed by Lindsay Lohan.
    Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes, apparently the perfect couple, split up, their marriage apparently strained by making Revolutionary Road, a film about a couple whose marriage is under strain. Nobody saw it coming. Elsewhere, British dreamboat Rachel Weisz split from her husband the US director Darren (Requiem for a Dream) Aronofsky and was reported to have become infatuated by James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

    Daniel Craig And Rachel Weisz’s Real Life Dream House Romance: Photos

    ARE Daniel Craig and actress Rachel Weisz at it? The NoTW says the actors are embroiled in “secret romance”. So secret is it that the stars of the big screen are in Dorset (sources suggest The Pavilion in Milborne Wick).

    where they have “strolled to a country pub where they snuggled together in front of the fire for a Christmas Eve drink”.

    Even more secretively, you might have read bout it on December 1?

    And get this:

    Warmly wrapped in thick coats, scarves and wellies – and with their faces almost hidden under sunglasses and woolly hats – they held hands and occasionally clung on to each other as they gingerly manoeuvred their way down icy lanes.

    Phwoar!

    This might come as news to Craig’s fiancee Satsuki Mitchell, 40.

    An onlooker said… “Daniel and Rachel looked like a romantic couple in a film.”

    A film, you say? Like Dream House, the psychological thriller? In the film, Craig and Weisz relocate to a picturesque New England town. They learn that the house was a venue for a murder. Reshoots begin in March. The PR begins now…

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1341640/Daniel-Craig-Rachel-Weisz-fuel-romance-rumours-spending-cosy-country-Christmas-together.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

    They were first linked together last month after she was said to be ‘smitten’ with her Bond co-star.
    But despite quashing the rumours they were an item, Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig will have trouble denying their romance now after they were snapped hand-in-hand during a cosy Christmas break together.
    Pictures in the News of the World today show the pair, who star together in Dream House due to be released next year, laughing and holding hands while away together in Somerset.

    Craig, 42, and Weisz, 40, were pictured bundled up against the cold as they went for a stroll by the £1,000 a week cottage near Yeovil.
    According to sources, they left the cosy bolthole on Christmas Eve and headed to the local pub.
    An onlooker said: ‘Daniel and Rachel looked like a romantic couple in a film. They were laughing and hanging on to each other’s words and stopping to take photos of each other.’
    And one fellow customer in the pub added: ‘They were clinging to each other like honeymooners. The chemistry was obvious.’
    The pair, who have know each other for several years, were brought together to star alongside each other in Dream House, due for release next year.

    Weisz plays the wife of a New York publishing executive, played by Craig, who relocates his family to a town in New England only to discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her two children.
    They were then romantically linked last month after Weisz split from her fiancé director Darren Aronofsky.
    A source close to The Mummy star said she was ‘head over heels’ for Craig and added: ‘Rachel and Daniel simply sparked during the filming of Dream House in Canada. They have great chemistry.
    ‘Darren’s such a good and responsible man, but Daniel’s the opposite extreme, he’s brooding and mysterious. Darren and Rachel have simply grown apart, they spent long periods away from each other, moving in different directions.’

    And shortly afterwards, Weisz and Aronofsky issued a joint statement that said: ‘Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky have been separated for some months.
    ‘They remain close friends and are committed to raising their son together in New York.’
    Craig got engaged to producer Satsuki Mitchell two years ago after he proposed with a Cartier ring and said she helps keep him grounded.
    He said: ‘I couldn’t get though it without her. You’ve got to have a sense of perspective and she gives me that.’
    But recent reports have suggested that they have now split up, although Craig has yet to deny or confirm this.

    Sony won’t comment on the budget for the pics, but it appears that the studio, director David Fincher and producer Scott Rudin aren’t thinking cheap. According to insiders, scribe Steve Zaillian’s deal for the second pic is said to be record-breaking.
    ———————————-
    so no comment about the budget……………… aaaaha!
    I still ask: How much?!

    Another hurdle for the studio is the success of the trio of Swedish-language film adaptations. That trio has grossed $202.9 million worldwide so far. After the other two bowed in the U.S. this year, “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest” launches Oct. 15. Since overseas B.O. accounts for the majority of a film’s B.O., the worldwide tallies are all-important, but there’s little precedent for anticipating reaction to English-language remakes.
    There’s also the question of the American appetite for a dark property that will necessitate a hard R rating for its key scenes of rape, sadism and murder. Insiders say a top Col exec twice passed on the property when it was brought to the studio by helmer Marc Forster. It wasn’t until Sony chairman Michael Lynton read the books that he insisted on the studio making the pics with Rudin producing.

    Attention, I won these bets, put your ego away and admit it. where is your problem to do to it?(:- well.. be ok.
    MGM is not sold, Dream House is in trouble, Craig dumped Satsuki this fall, all like I said. I also said that Olga Kurylenko will be back as a Bond Girl in 23.Bond, right?
    now this is very close to win like I did in the case of MGM, Dream House and planned Bond for this summer:

    Look:
    “December 26, 2010″

    MGM set to film the next 007 film ‘Bond 23′ and casting is underway.

    Note: Karen Sortito, a movie-marketing executive best known for groundbreaking product tie-ins to James Bond films in the 1990s, has died on Monday December 13, 2010. She was 49. Karen will be dearly missed and her legacy will live on. Condolences to her family and loved ones.

    James Bond 007 insiders are saying that production should start on the next installment of the film series towards the middle of next year for release in November 2012. The current working title is “Bond 23″ – named for the 23rd film is the series. Academy Award winning director Sam Mendes will helm the film. The British newspapers indicate Bond 23 is now casting.

    According to UK newspaper The Independent, earlier this year Russell Beale told “Bond 23″ director Sam Mendes that he is very interested in playing a bad guy in the next Bond film.

    The UK Daily Mail also has reported that Sam Mendes and Barbara Broccoli have already had “many meetings over casting” for the next Bond film.

    In another casting scoop, the female lead from the last Bond film is said to be returning for “Bond 23″. “Quantum of Solace,” is the only Bond film in which James Bond does not sleep with the female lead during the course of the film, which closes neither with her in his arms nor with her dead. Olga Kurylenko played the female lead.
    Camille, and will in all likelihood return for the 23rd Bond film.

    On December 2nd, 2010, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan approved a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. plan that calls for creditors to forgive roughly $4 billion in debt in exchange for equity in the restructured MGM. The studio plans to raise about $500 million for new films and projects, and will retain all its assets. This has given the MGM the ability to produce and distribute “Bond 23″.

    Are Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz dating?

    Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz have been photographed hand-in-hand over the festive period, fueling rumours the British actors are dating.

    According to the News Of The World (NOTW), the Bond star and The Mummy actress spent Christmas Day together at a secluded holiday home in the Dorset countryside.

    Daniel and Rachel met in the Spring on the set of their upcoming movie, Dream House, a thriller in which they play a married couple who move to a new home only to find a series of murders have taken place there.

    42-year-old Daniel, who is the sixth Bond, has reportedly split from his long-term girlfriend, US producer Satsuki Mitchell, although he has never confirmed or denied this.

    Meanwhile 40-year-old Rachel, who won an Oscar and Golden Globe for her role in the 2005 film The Constant Gardener, announced last month that she had split from her fiance, American director Darren Aronofsky, after nine years.

    They have a four year old son together and the NOTW claim there is no suggestion that Daniel was the reason for their split.
