1). The popularity of films about young girls forced to choose one of two young men is so great, and the financial dividends that promises to exploitation of this topic, are so terrifying that the Walt Disney Company could not stay aloof from this process.
According to the publication Variety, birthplace of Mickey Mouse has won rights to film on have not been yet published book by Ally Condie "Matched" in bitter struggle with studio Paramount.
The action is taking part in totalitarian society where citizens receive instructions on what to read, watch and what to believe, and to love. The plot is built around a young heroine who is "absolutely confident that society knows best what she needs". On a day when a girl her age must take the designated Society lover, she sees on the screen, her face "Chosen" Xander and already going to give him her hand and heart, but suddenly for a split second before it appears another young man.
The company claims that it is only a program crash, but the character feels that it is increasingly drawn to the mysterious stranger. As a result of long tossing between destiny and love, she begins to doubt the infallibility of Society.
Studio Walt Disney plans to turn the story into a saga similar to "Twilight".
2). One of the major roles in the thriller "Better Living Through Chemistry" will play Jeremy Renner together with Jennifer Garner. As directors on the project are debuting couple writers.
Hero Jeremy Renner works a chemist in a small town. He is unhappy in marriage and one day starts affair with a married woman (Jennifer Garner), which opens for him the world of drugs with prescription.
The film will shoot Geoff Moore and David Posamenter earlier worked for the soil composition scenarios. Start time filming has not yet been announced.
For Jennifer Garner this is not the first picture with a bizarre plot. Next year, the actress can be seen in the comedy "Butter", where her character is engaged in cutting sculptures from butter.
Garner also took part in a remake of the comedy "Arthur."
After playing Minesweeper in the Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker" Jeremy Renner popularity continues to grow. Actor will play together with Tom Cruise in blockbuster "Mission: Impossible 4" and try on a superhero costume in the "Avengers".
Incidentally, the actor recently confirmed that his Hawkeye, in contrast to the prototype of the comic will be dressed in decent shape, but not in bright purple dress.
A screen adaptation of the novel "London Fields" by Martin Amis, crime thriller from the writers' of "Quantum of Solace", the role of Courtney Love - Englishwoman Gemma Arterton did not like to hold her tongue, in contrast to overseas colleagues and gladly shares her plans.
Of course, such public policy is a headache for actress publicist. Recently, he was forced to deny rumors that the ward is a female candidate on a major role in the new "Alien", but Gemma at the Toronto Film Festival has confirmed that Ridley Scott actually asked her to meet and discuss some project. "I do not know what's going on, but I really liked him in the "Disappearance of Alice's Creed."
In an interview with GQ magazine, Arterton said, that she would soon play a "very cool role in the life" from director Michael Winterbottom, who is going to filmed novel by Martin Amis "London Fields". The main character is planning her own death, as potential murderers are minor crook, striving to become a champion in a game of darts and weak-willed aristocrat with a hyperactive son.
The problem is that Winterbottom believes that the project is still very far from realization. In June this year, director said that he need to wait several more years. But if Gemma Arterton is really in the main role, there is a chance that the "London Fields" is closer than it seems.
Arterton also can play in crime drama "Corsica 72" on scenario of the authors of two recent pictures about agent 007 by Nile Pervis and Robert Wade. According to the plot, two criminals on Italian island Corsica, falls in love with the same girl. Gemma said that it is the "best scenario of all that I ever read." The director of the project is going to be Luke Guadanino.
And finally, Arterton can take part in two projects related to the legends of rock. The actress casts into the role of Marianne Feytfull and Courtney Love.
Film about Feytfull is yet at a very early stage of development, while the drama "All Apologies" about Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love may be a new work directed by Oren Moverman.
In the near future Arterton has shooting in "Clash of the Titans 2", and western movie by Richard E. Grant "In With The Outlaws" and Henrik Ibsen's performance "The Builder Soilnece" in one of London theaters.
The biggest project in the American box office over the weekend without a doubt became the fourth series of "Resident Evil", directed by Paul Anderson and supporting the three-dimensional format. Also, albeit in a limited release, American viewers can see clearly an exciting project "I'm still here" by Casey Affleck, telling us about amazing transformation of a famous Hollywood actor in the hip-hop star.
The picture, taken by Paul Anderson, left quite a curious chamber horror a la "Aliens", gathered a good harvest at the box and giving a life to a sequel, more oriented to action.
Anderson himself was not averse to a director to do the second series, as he has no free time, while the studio demanded a continuation of the banquet as soon as possible. Commercial "Resident Evil" was more successful than its predecessor.
Fresh released movie "Resident Evil: After death" continues to outline predecessors (which is not really surprising: writer and curator of the project as all the same Anderson). The authors do not shy talking about 3D as one of the merits of the film - and it must be noted, not without reason. Tape was originally filmed in three-dimensional format, and because the film is full of episodes and scenes, specially sharpened under 3D. With the screen in the auditorium flies a huge ax, and even with the stroke of the opening credits in the air, bucking a drop of blood.
American critics have smashed to smithereens the new movie. Competently done 3D - this is fine, but authors forgotten about further development of the plot.
"A good action - and really nothing else" - Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com.
"The reason for viewing - perfect 3D. The reason for that not to see this movie - everything else"- Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review.
" After Death" is even more disappointing than the previous films, if only because the creators of each picture does not add anything new, except for non-original episodes, filmed in slow rhythm, bad play-acting and rambling storyline" - Wilson Morales , AOL Black Voices.
"In the end, though the film is not original and not clever, it is not so bad" - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media.
"A fool on the brink, but incredibly entertaining film" - Alex Zane, Sun Online.
"Dull, incoherent, chaotic film" - Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com.
"Only for fans"- film critic Emanuel Levy.
Discussions on the possible extension of the comedy thriller "True Lies" have not ceased since the film was released in 1994. But hardly anyone could think that James Cameron will make a famous film in the series.
It is worth noting that the very "True Lies" was a remake of French comedy "La Totale!", which was released in 1991. In Cameron movie Arnold Schwarzenegger has played a major role. His hero, being a spy, creating a happy life for his wife, who believes that she is married to a simple clerk, anxious for adventure.
According to the site Deadline Hollywood Daily, the Cameron company Lightstorm Entertainment in cooperation with the Fox channel are going to shoot the TV version of "True Lies". For the director of "Avatar" it will be a second experience of producing a television series: on his account is fantastic drama "Dark Angel" with Jessica Alba. The series lasted two seasons and now is in director list as a probable full-length project.
Once, "True Lies" considered one of the most expensive projects. The budget is comprised of one hundred to 120 million dollars. It fees amounted to 378 million in worldwide box office, and the criticism has been mostly positive.
Five years ago, Tom Arnold, who took part in "True Lies", starred in the comedy "The Kid and I", where he played maturing actor hired by a billionaire for the filming of the movie is very similar to the Cameron film. In the picture have glowed even performers of the main roles in "True Lies, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis.
He has been filming for more than ten years, and has a significant advancement in his career, as a screenwriter, Wentworth Miller is still inextricably linked with the only role: battling brothers - Michael Scofield in the TV series "Prison Break". Soon, however, all possible changes, as Miller took the lead in a feature film playing Chris Redfild in "Resident Evil: Afterlife". And though Chris - the main character in the cult video game after three released movies, he appears for the first time, reunite with his sister, Claire (Ali Larter) and teaming up with Alice (Milla Jovovich) in their journey to end the corporation Umbrella.
- Tell us about your role in the movie?
Well, I'm playing Chris Redfild. It is obvious that he was the protagonist in a video game from the start, but he first appears in the film version of "Resident Evil", so it was a kind of a problem, preparing for this part. I wanted to make my own study of the image and see what that would justify the expectation of fans, in this case be handled with respect to what has been, in terms of mythology and history. This idea was not far from the truth, and my job was to ensure that emerged in the fourth part, quietly become a part of this whole. I like to think that I have made all efforts to be among those who influenced the process changes.
- If you - Claire's brother, why did not she come back before and get you just in this fourth film?
This is an excellent question. There is a sort of reunion between the two in this part of the movie. This is the dynamic that I like about Chris and Claire Redfield, and that, I think, brings a new flavor, it is the fact that they - a brother and sister. This is - family relations. This is what the people sitting in the room can easily relate with themselves. Movies crammed with special effects and zombies - spectacular show. But at the same time, if you do not care about the characters of heroes, later, when with them is something terrible, this response and empathy does not arise. Thus, it was important to outline in detail the characters and the relationship between Chris and Claire, primarily to give additional weight to "buffet" of special effects.
- Zombies are pretty popular thing in modern culture. How do you think, why are they an inexhaustible source for fiction and horror?
I think there is something evil in this recklessness and ruthlessness, which is incredibly frightening and impossible to stop. This onslaught of terror, I think, speaks to our darkest fears of the evil that comes to us, and there is nothing we can do about it.
- When you become a part of something like this, do you go back to the video game as to the source, or do you view the movie itself?
It was a symbiosis of both. I asked producers to add and connect together the most significant events from video games which were directly related to the personal files of my hero, so I could get close to where it actually occurred. I was struck by how (at least in the earlier video games) he looked like a clear-eyed, with a thick tail hair. Someone who is only at the beginning of this horrific way. And then you meet him in the movie, and he has many miles from the start. He - quite a different person with other premonitions.
- How was it to be a new guy in the shooting team?
It was pretty smooth. They are - a great team with which you can work together, and there are obviously significant and complex framework, which Paul and Milla have created together. Like Paul has built a car and Mila is driving, while the rest of our team is going with them, and in parallel shot from the shotgun. It was only a chance to jump on board and immediately feel the breeze in the hair.
"Girl, Interrupted" - a film with an excellent and original story, excellent acting game, and charming actress Angelina Jolie.
On this movie, I only knew that Angelina Jolie has gotten an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress after playing here. The same movie I was not particularly interested in, but I decided to buy a DVD with this film and watch. The film is simply incomparable.
The plot at first seems completely ordinary and banal, but after watching this film, you immediately realize that this is not true. The film begins with the fact that a girl named Suzanne Keisei has been brought to the hospital and tried to "pump out" after she swallowed an aspirin and drunk with vodka. All at once it is due to attempt suicide, But Suzanne herself said that she just had a bad headache and she would just get rid of a headache and she did not want to kill herself. But her parents and a doctor (part-time friend of her parents) all still convinced Susanne better to go to a psychiatric hospital and receive medical treatment there. Suzanne has no way out and she went to the hospital. There she meets a lot of new people, which became her new friends. The closest to her becomes Lisa.
She is a very long time in this hospital and she had for herself and understands that she will stay there forever. Suzanne life varies greatly, and sometimes not for the better. But Suzanne has still has a chance to be cured and leave clinic. That's interesting.
As I said the movie is simply amazing. This is a very powerful thriller film. Also the movie makes us think about many things. In this movie, everything is fine. Just watch it you can not once but many and it would still be interesting for you.
Acting is one of the strongest sides of the film. Winona Ryder, Brittany Murphy, Clea Duvall, Whoopi Golberg, Jared Leto they all played just fine. But most of all I want to highlight, of course Angelina Jolie. She is a wonderful actress, and in this film she played just great.
"Girl, Interrupted"- a film that everyone should see!
John McTiernan will film a thriller "Shrapnel", whose concept will be presented to potential foreign buyers at the open yesterday, the Toronto Film Festival. The producer of the "Predator" has already signed a contract with the Belgian production companies Corsan and the Los Angeles studio FilmEngine, which together occupy an embodiment of the project.
The text of the future picture has been written by Evan Daugherty and in 2008 entered into so-called black list of the most notable unrealized scenarios of the year. The plot of "Shrapnel" revolves around the opposition of two war veterans, who opened a deadly shooting at each other. Anthony Rhulen from FilmEngine (he is responsible for the production of "Butterfly Effect"), which is at par with Paul Bryuls (Corsan) producing a tape, has noticed that the potential of the film was clear to filmmakers, especially after the first reading of the script.
It is worth noting that the "Shrapnel" authorship Daugherty has nothing to do with the same graphic novel publisher Radical Comics. To the fantastic comic book about the resistance of Venus inhabitants to colonizers of the solar system, has watched Len Wiseman last year. Experts believe that if the plans of "Other World" director will continue further then discussion, McTiernan could easily find an alternative name for his own movie.
Every self-respecting cinemaddict at least once watched the first film from the series "Resident Evil", because it is already a classic of cinema.
And then came that glorious day when every self-respecting man will defend his time to new "Resident Evil-4" designed to break the stereotypes created by the first trilogy and produce something already familiar to all.
Creating a quarter of the stories about Alice and the boys, Anderson decided not to spend time getting to know the characters and bringing out their personalities as it was done in the earlier parts. Now his task was to complement them and to introduce new characters who will act in the next part of the new trilogy. For some this may seem a bad aspect, but for someone on the contrary good, because the fewer the characters talk about life and about themselves, the more time for exciting battles.
Recreated with the help of modern technology around world, or rather what has left after it, is so atmospheric and disturbingly grim, that really scared the opportunity of possible world changes.
Zombies and various methods of their extermination - the main that attracts the viewer and.
Fans of Zombie genre games will build a monument to Paul Anderson, who appeared at the same time as producer/director and screenwriter of the picture.
Concerning 3D, so it has betrayed the striking realism of everything going on and had to dodge from the bullet and from the largest ax, and even wipe the blood from the glasses.
Conclusion: "Resident Evil 4: Life after death" is not just a continuation of the universe transformation in entirely new form. Do not ask too many questions, to think who, where, how, why, and so on, there's no need. Resident Evil 4 is a movie created to entertain viewers. To understand the essence of what is going absolutely no need to play the original games, not necessarily even see the first of three films. It's entirely separate and independent work, which could otherwise not be perceived.
If you're a rabid fan of canon "Resident Evil", then just forget for a while about the original movie and the relationship with this movie, just enjoy the beautiful and spectacular sight, which is so rarely seen in our cinema in recent times.
1). Milla Jovovich has shared her vision of why the film series "Resident Evil" have become so popular. It turns out that the matter is this: "Resident Evil" has always been an independent film it is its singularity. We have begun filming a modest thriller in the European style, and all who worked on it, Paul Anderson (director of the film and Milla's husband), me and Michelle Rodriguez - we all just joined this game. So such way was born this series. And I think it passed the spectators. Our today audience is rather clever and they know when them are lying. And we're just trying to make the best movie with the available budget, but also get pleasure from it, so that the audience liked it and who will watch it".
The above implies two important facts: "Resident Evil" - is not a trash, but the independent thriller in the European style, and like Milla Jovovich star in this off-season (we are about 2 and 3 parts).
2). The debut series of the second season of "Vampire Diaries" was a miracle as well. It starts exactly the same place over the second season in the first five minutes, presents a lot of surprises. All the main characters work at all the money dialogs as before sharp as a razor, and Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley just burning napalm. Not to mention Nina Dobrev, united in two persons.

3). Jeremy Renner and Numi Repes "The Hurt Locker" together in a film under the promising title "Hansel and Gretel: witch-hunter". As the name implies, after the miraculous rescue from the clutches of evil witch Hansel and Gretel have grown and became quite a civilian hunters go for the witch. The film is about their adventures 15 years after the events of the original tale. Producer of the film stands Will Ferrell.
4). There are persistent rumors that the team "Captain America" scheduled completion. In addition to the heroic Chris Evans in a small cameo there Helen Mirren will appear, and even actor Bruce Willis. Apparently, after the "Expendables" old Bruce tasted small but emotionally intense roles. Although I repeat once again - all this so far only rumors, not confirmed by serious evidence. But it would be cool, of course.
5). "Dark Tower" by Stephen King has finally adopted, and once in the format of the film and television series. And there will be two films. Director of both the film and the series will be Ron Howard ("The Da Vinci Code"), and producer and screenwriter - Akiva Goldsman. A series of books by Stephen King tells of the adventures of Arrow named Roland, and in the parallel post-apocalyptic world falls apart, from which he regularly transferred to our world and everything in order to find the way to the mysterious "Dark Tower", which somehow manages throughout the universe. King is optimistic about the project, saying that he had been an intriguing series of films and TV series, which shows respect for the original novels and characters from the Dark Tower series, which both fell in love with the fans.
In an interview with The Times, supporting Stephen Frears film "Tamara Drewe", actress Gemma Arterton said that Ridley Scott is planning to discuss with her participation in the upcoming prequel "Alien".
Ridley Scott has looked "The Disappearance of Alice Creed" and was thrilled.
He wants to meet with me concerning "Alien" or something like that.
It seems that Gemma is not particularly closely monitoring the project. It is assumed that Scott saw her on the lead role in the film.
In addition, it became clear that Arterton will also play in the adaptation of Ruth Rendell novel "The Keys to the Street", which wrote the script for Christopher Nolan and that he himself had intended to film it, but eventually broke away from the project.
On account of British actress there are such hits as "Quantum of Solace", "Clash of the Titans" and "Prince of Persia", where Gemma has played a central role.
It is noteworthy that Scott just recently discovered some details of the coming film (of two planned prequel to the franchise).
"The movie will be rather tough. A kind of reverse side of the moon of this all. The central theme is gods and creators. A kind of space engineers. Have strangers been developed as a biological weapon? Or do they - the establishment of nature, which invades and cleans the planet? "
Both films will star in 3D. Will play or not in some of them Gemma Arterton, we will know soon.
