Summer passes, and the fans of "Vampire Diaries" all do not know the rest. In September, begins the second season of TV series after the first left us a lot of mysteries, ambiguities, and general plot tails. We ought to understand all this, while there is time, and at the same time and find out what there is in the second season of the series! With these thoughts, we went to the interview with the stars and producer of "Vampire Diaries". And this is what came of it.
- What will do Damon in the new season?
It will not necessarily be the most fun season for Damon. I think that it would challenge the primacy of many, and it is in an area where I do not think that he was accustomed to the fact that his challenge. I think that in the Mystic Falls comes even greater chaos than it was in the first season. In general, would not be bored.
- Will be humanity in Damon or his return to the path of evil?
Well, I think when he learns that it was not Helen, he will be a little upset.
- But he will still want to be with Catherine, after he learns that it was she?
He still wants Catherine like an idiot. You know, love is truly blind. This forces us to do some stupid, stupid things; each of us at one time experienced this.
- Will Damon feelings for Catherine projected on Helen?
I do not know. In fact, to be honest, I do not know. I would like to make sure he knows (that Catherine) - crazy manipulative bitch, and many of his features, they have come from her, and I would like to be able to look inside myself and say: "This is not a very good human qualities".
- In the teaser for the second season we have seen, as Catherine says that she wants Stephen. How will this affect Damon?
This is another thing that struck him in the heart.
- What impact will this have on Damon and Stefan?
Temporary alliance. It's an interesting idea that may arise between the alliance to become stronger, because it is going to hurt them both.
- Do you think that Helen reveals the humanity in Damon?
I think that every time you see her in him, is when he is with her. I mean, that Nina Dobrev helps in this. There can be no two opinions.
- Which of the Salvatore brothers is now more suitable for Helen?
Defun! He is their secret brother, who is a perfect blend of both.
- You will be back to kiss John in this season?
I'll kiss at least one of Salvatore brothers in this season.
- What has happened with the Catherine return?
Last season I got very little role of Catherine. I basically played Helen, and we did a little shooting Catherine, but this season it will be much greater. She came back and wreaking chaos. I'm going a little bit to get into the skin and Damon to play with everyone, and even interfere in their minds.
- How does Stephen feel about the kiss on the porch?
I'm very sad about the kiss between Damon and Helen. Because, despite the fact that Damon manic-sociopath and a murderer, he knows that I love him. This is the worst insult. Currently, Stephen is not sympathetic to anyone, and no one is concerned. I'll tell you this guy scares me a bit.
- Is there any change in his feelings for Helen?
Helen, Helen... He loves her. This is a kind of transformation. He reconciled with himself, in general, the second season says a lot more about the perception of other people. I'm, who I'm. He will do other things - to laugh, be funny.
- Now, when Catherine said she returned to Stephen, what were his actions?
Everything is difficult, at first he thought he was in love with Catherine, she also made him immortal. It's hard. He meets her in disgust, and at the same time, with some interest.
- What do you want for Stephen?
I not only want him to show his dark side, I would like to see Stephen also used other tactics, not only the understanding and performance of his burden. I want to make him more dynamic and active.
Executive producer Kevin Williamson
- What can we expect this season?
Well, you know, the return of Catherine in the Mystic Falls - it's a little change of scenery for the show. We must figure out how this will affect Damon and Stephen in terms of return Catherine, and I do not know. It is difficult to talk about it, nothing actually to say, because everything seems to surprise you! She comes back and as you saw in the video, she returned and, in general, explained why she did it, and it will be interesting to see how it all ends, but if you watched the show in the past, you know that there are always some reasons why something happens. So it is a huge turn. In general, she said she wanted Stephen. She returned for Stephen.
- Could there be other reasons?
- What do we learn about Catherine?
There is still much need to know about 1864. What happened? Why isn't she in the grave? How did she run? Where was she? Why is she again appeared in the Mystic Falls? What led her to Mystic Falls? And so on. All that we are going to explore, including the role played here a Lockwood curse.
- How does Catherine differ from the same her in 1864?
It is more vicious. It will be interesting to watch on her. It is different in the sense that it will no longer have to wear corsets, and the other in the sense that, well, I will not say because it hint at where it has been all this time. It's a secret, what she did.
- Will we see memories of the characters, who died in the last season?
- Will we see Isobel again?
Not immediately. I would not say in the first 12 episodes.
- How much will be episodes with flashbacks?
We plan to have three episodes with flashbacks, and I think all of them will be four.
- What can you tell us about Tyler this year?
Tyler is going to learn with the help of his uncle, Mason, who comes to town in the very first episode. He found out who he is, and how to live with it. He learns about the curse, who he was and how he reacts to it. So for him it would be fun journey ... with a lot of violence.
Recently, I've looked movies, and altogether do not understand - how they're spending the budget money?
Look at this: "Losers"- great fighter with cheerful Jeffrey Dean Morgan ("Keepers", "Supernatural"), ("Fantastic Four") and "Avatar". They are not the most expensive, but fairly well-known actors. The film is constantly someone beaten, shot and blown up - normal funny action, I like it. Budget - 25 million dollars.
"Repo Men" - futuristic action movie with Jude Law ("EXistenZ", "Enemy at the Gates") and Forest Whitaker ("Vantage Point", "The Last King of Scotland"), is also not very expensive, but well-known actors. The film is full of actions, violence, blood, chases and fights. Budget - 32 million dollars.
"Crazies"- horror movie about Zombies with Rada Mitchell and Timothy Olyphant. Well, Rada has a karma so, beating monsters that are in "Silent Hill". Timothy, of course, the actor of class "B", but still not McDowell. The film is brisk, with the crowd, shooting and bloody massacre with farm implements. Budget - 20 million dollars.
But what's there, when large-scale "Inglorious Bastards" Tarantino cost of 70 million, with 20 of them fees to Brad Pitt. The actual value of the film, therefore, 50 million. The price of just published "Predator" - $ 40 million.
So my question is still actual, where do producers take such crazy sums? Where directors put in that money, but so reliable that they still cannot see anyone? Give the answer? No answer...
Studio DreamWorks, this May, purchased the rights to filming on the game "Monstrepocalypse", gradually developing a project. As director it was invited Tim Burton.
Last weekend editor of the website Slashfilm contacted with producer Roy Lee, who shared details of the project.
Screenplay is written by John August. He has worked with Burton on the adaptation of several of his films: "Big Fish", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "Corpse Bride". He also had a hand in creating the script for the film version of the series "Dark shadows", but this material will be rewritten.
The main plot of the future movie is Earth attack with giant monsters. Once people hit back, the monsters retreat. It soon turns out that they really did not leave the planet, and dug deep underground, where the signals are sent into space. People are prepared to repel another attack and develop the giant robots which will have to fight with alien invaders.
Most of the film will take the stage battles giant monsters and huge robots. On the design of monsters is working Tim Burton in collaboration with Ken Ralston, four-time winner of an Oscar for special effects. Among his works are the trilogy "Back to the Future," "Who Framed Roger Rabbit "and the trilogy of "Star Wars ".
"Monstrepocalypse" will be filmed in 3D and will appear in cinemas at the end of 2012.
For what first will undertake Tim Burton - a "Dark shadow" or "Monstrepocalypse" - is still unknown. Once the scripts are ready to both projects, the situation becomes clearer. However, we can assume that Burton's early next year for sure will "Dark shadows", as planned: in this project he wanted to harmonize schedules with Johnny Depp, which is quite a challenge.
In Marvel returned prodigal son: "The Punisher", the rights to which a long time belonged to various film companies, will now be able to get a decent adaptation of the native studio. However, until that Marvel will not hurry with this.
According to the comics, Frank Castle was a veteran of Vietnam. Mafia shot and killed his wife and child, then he put on his black suit with a skull on his chest and declared war on crime. New Punisher appeared in Marvel Comics in 1970 as an enemy of Spider-Man. In the late 1980's, when the dark and realistic characters have become the norm, it has gained popularity. Unlike classic superhero Frank Castle uses weapons and does not hide his name. In the movie, Frank has appeared on three occasions.
In 1989, Roger Corman Company New World made a film with actor Dolph Lundgrenom. The actor did not wear a classic suit with a skull on his chest, but the role of Castle was precarious for Lundgren, who played Frank as a mentally unbalanced person. Despite the popularity of the character, the film never went to the big screen, appearing at once on video.
Restarting took place already in 2004, when Marvel Comics movies were popular. Thomas Jane played the hero in "The Punisher" by Jonathan Hensleigh, and at the role of the enemy was John Travolta. Jane, being a fan of comics, seriously approached the project, well studied Castle. The problem with the suit was settled simply: Thomas Jane wore a shirt with a skull. Many fans of his approach landed on the soul, but a movie with a budget of $ 33 million earned in the U.S., 20.8 million.
Two years ago, was filmed a sequel. Jane refused to participate, but director Lexi Alexander has been out of work - the producers took away her right to assembly movie. For the weapons came Ray Stevenson. Despite the fact that the gunman "Punisher: War Zone" was one of the finest comic book adaptations, the film also failed at the box.
The last two projects produced studio Lionsgate. Now the film rights to stories gloomy man with a skull on his chest are again at Marvel. That's only as an enemy of Spider-Man you will not see: the right to Peter Parker is still owned by Sony. But the Punisher will be able to easily measure swords with, say, the Hulk. As it became known, the role of Bruce Banner in "Avengers" really walked to Mark Ruffalo.
Gourmet zombie trash continues to walk confidently on the cinema, and lately even the demand exceeds supply. Specific film series "Resident Evil" is now well diluted with "La horde" (2009) and "The Crazies" (2010), not to mention films such as "Rec" (2007), "Quarantine" (2008) and so on. Now the rotten sinister ghouls penetrated into animation.
Cartoon "The Goon" is a comic book adaptation of the same name from the office Dark Horse Comics, not rarely publishes stories about all kinds of filthy undead. Brutal comic "Sin City", in which Quentin, Robert and Frank once filmed a great movie - their handiwork. Also, "Dark Horse" tells in pictures of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hellboy and Conan.
In the "Goon" there will be discussed the adventures of a strapping Noddle, consisting in the service of a prominent crime boss. The main duties are to clean up thugs territories from zombies and other supernatural guests.
Fresh teaser is full of humor and comics style pictures. In short, first impression strongly positive.
Dreamcatcher experienced Cobb (DiCaprio) working retrievers - stealing ideas from someone else's subconscious, while the author is sleeping. Prestigious customer (Watanabe), persuades him to a risky gamble - do not steal, and to rood into the mind of his competitor destructive idea. Cobb takes this case - but in a strange dream, he will face not only with the opposing his consciousness, but also with the painful memories of events, which he can't accept. The magician and the magician of modern cinema, Christopher Nolan presents a daydream "Inception" - about those, whom are not enough one reality.
Nolan has always held the secrets of the human psyche. All of his films - whether it be taken off the opposite, "Memento" or magical "Prestige" or the ethics of hacking "Dark Knight" - in essence, telling one: how strangely the mind constructs the world we perceive.
"Inception" is not only an exception - it is a real peak among Nolan works and, I believe, is not the last. This film is at once the door has become a classic and the reference in the genre about mind games, and for having participated in all film artists a great success - to play in it.
The movie was also lucky with the artists. Nolan brought in the "Inception" great team of mummers played an equally fun in sleep and reality.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy on the screen constantly diving and pleasing the eye. Ellen Page in the role of constructing mazes-dream Ariadne looks like Alice, trapped in Wonderland - passing a certain timidity of the unknown and at the same time - the enthusiasm of the events. Ken Watanabe, as always, looks great, Michael Caine - awesome organic and Mariyon Cotillard is wonderful in the role of vision from dreams.
But Leonardo DiCaprio in the role of Cobb is overshadowing them all - has long become a serious dramatic actor and firmly to his own Oscar statuette. DiCaprio shows real class, making emotional empathy with his hero, and together with him doubt - you're awake or still asleep - checking with metal pegtop.
Dreams - a metaphor for old Hollywood movies, and "Inception" it is the best way possible: the film plunges into the world of dreams, and its main action - a dream. And because of this dual sleep do not want to wake up - even when the music from titers will resound in your head.
"Inception" - a dramatic film with a twist, and most of the time it is not a laughing matter. There are only a few jokes at the nodal points, which work as grounding in electrical - through laughter can reset the accumulated strain. However, the film contains many hidden irony - DiCaprio in one of the sinks again, a team of actors scattered around the levels of sleep, in accordance with the level of hypocrisy: Gordon-Levitt gets stuck on the second, and the rest go deeper - and other amenities.
Despite 150 minutes, "Inception" - surprisingly one-piece movie, extremely concentrated on the events. On the screen, do not literally come off - if you connect to a suitcase, transmitting designed dream. Do any of you tried to stop your own dream?
"Inception" is unwound as a metal peg - but not slowing down, but on the contrary, quickening its rotation. In the final awaits us most, perhaps, the longest in the history of cinema catharsis, during which sleep time to happen a film.
Many great films of our time spoiled endings - starting an artistic game, most authors lose the thread and wander off somewhere not there. "Inception" seems to be one of the major films a decade, because perfectly tailored and knows how to finish. Nolan's film presents a spectacular finale, which puts the step of your worldview.
Someone will blame this movie, that it's just a mind construction, although it plays on the field has traditionally allowed for the images: a large part of "Inception" is not just a dream, but in the depths of the subconscious, and any on-site Nolan had to gush crazy symbolism. But Nolan started with the root of the idea in someone else's brain, not because he wanted to impress the imagination - for this movie is too real - and to grow something in your mind.
Masterly construction of "Inception" sometimes even frightening - when you catch a picture sleeve suspicion that the introduction - not in the movie, but the film itself. Nolan, an experienced magician captivates the attention of an incredible duel in the corridor with a displaced gravity, wrapped in a roll city and exploding bookstores - while he deftly turns your mind, pulling him through non-specific idea.
"The idea - the most dangerous thing in the world, because it's a virus" - we figured out the words of Cobb - DiCaprio. Even a tiny grain of the idea, once in the brain, has not let go - and will turn over time either in the indispensable support, or a deadly trap.
And when at the end of "Inception" all is synchronized, and all the elements line up as the figures on the board, it will be clear with what Nolan started. Thought about global unquenchable creativity for many is too abstract - and the director put it clearer and more accessible.
Movie- illusion, and, leaving the theater, we often do not remember for what we came. Illusion, in contrast to the fantasy, has quite visible and readable limits. Nolan's film is like a time bomb lay in our heads ideas, that the movie is no longer ends at the credits. This is an ideal form and execution injection fantasies - about the fact that when you get out of the theater, movie will follow you.
In the fi thriller by Christopher Nolan "Inception" Leonardo DiCaprio spends most of his life in the dreams of strangers. About what is going on in his head, 35-year-old actor said in an interview with Rolling Stone.
- That makes him worry.
"My stomach begins to shrink from any folly, from things that shouldn't worry me at all. Madness that in the brain suddenly occur any reaction, forcing you to worry about any nonsense. My life is well organized, I very seriously do my work, and then - boom - and here I sit and suffer because of something ridiculous."
- About old days.
"In fact, I was a brat with the biggest mouth in the world. I snapped at everything and was ready for any fight, but when you tell a guy who is three years older than you that kick his ass as a rule here you are a victim. I was a fool, and this is true with no doubt.
I was wild and nuts and do not suffer from this, as some now when they try to keep a good face on a bad game, and thus discredit themselves. I did not care about what people think ... Maybe, so I tried to get rid of the chaos going on at my head, or from potential failures. It was: "Wow, how lucky I am that I can fun as I want and with whom I want!" Two of my main blonde competitors, with whom we went to plays at the beginning, are no longer alive: one hanged himself, the other died of a heroin overdose ... I have never taken drugs. You will not read in the tabloids stories about how I was found in a cool room hotel lying in a pool of my own vomit. "
- About dates.
"Before "Titanic" I had a great success in girls. Everything was clear - the relationship, not black with knowledge of my "glory".
- About fame after "Titanic".
"There was a sense of split personality. A bit like that I got my avatar, if the terminology used in James Cameron. Yes, it sounds very boastful. In fact, all the things I wanted then, just a little more break, because by-and-bye - and sick.
Franchise of "Twilight" saga is coming to the end, so that the studio looking for its replacement. It seems that Lionsgate have found another option: a series of books by Suzanne Collins "Hunger games".
The main character of the two Collins novels (the third book comes out in a month) - a strong spirit girl named Katniss. She lives in the near future, in which after the collapse of the world and natural disasters the United States of America no longer exists. There is a Capital and 12 districts.
Every year from each district are chosen by lottery, with two representatives, who participate in the "hunger games". Select only among adolescents. When the younger sister of 16-year Katniss was chosen to represent their district, Katniss decides to take her place. She and her partner, a boy named Pete, son of a baker, nothing like the other players - strong and resilient. Brutal fighting for the life, reminiscent of "The Running Man" and "Road" along with "Royale Battle" is seasoned with romantic relationship, but completely devoid of vampires and werewolves.
However, the "Hunger Games" is pretty tough book where the heroine more concerned with survival than the choice of boyfriend.
The first version of the script has been written by Collins itself, but soon it was rewritten by Billy Ray. Among his works - "Hart's War", "Flightplan" and "State of Play". He must shift the series "24 hours" for the big screen.
Fans of the novel already wondering who will take on the role of Katniss. Among the favorites - Chloe Moretts, Dakota Fanning and Saoirse Ronan. But it is too early to talk about the casting: Lionsgate has started to find a director. This can happen fairly soon, because the script of Ray in the near future will be on the producers table.
