Dr Seuss' The Lorax gets a trailer

We have seen a couple of images from the film. Now we have the trailer to amuse you. The trailer has the same feel as the last animated feature, Horton Hears a Who

The 3D-CGI feature Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is an adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. The animated adventure follows the journey of a boy as he searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.

Danny DeVito will lend his vocal talents to the iconic title character of the Lorax, while Ed Helms will voice the enigmatic Once-ler. Also bringing their talents to the film are global superstars Zac Efron as Ted, the idealistic young boy who searches for the Lorax, and Taylor Swift as Ashley, the girl of Ted’s dreams. Rob Riggle will play financial king O’Hare, and beloved actress Betty White will portray Ted’s wise Grammy Norma.

Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is the third feature created by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me, Hop).
The Lorax is in UK cinemas from July 27, 2012

Gotta Catch Santa Claus DVD Release Review

Gotta Catch Santa Claus is not a bad offering, for it's intended audience at least and I have given it 3 stars.

This film is obviously aimed at very young children, up to the age of around seven or eight I should think. It features a large quantity of musical numbers, highly repetitive and irritating to an adult ear, but children will no doubt enjoy singing along as the words are very easy to learn and the tunes are catchy.

Gotta Catch Santa Claus is a CG short (just under 1hr long, but that is quite long enough), based on a comic book by Trevor Taylor and is extremely lively and colourful. It stars William Shatner (Star trek, Over the Hedge) as Santa Claus, which is frankly rather disturbing! The film also features Cory Doran (Jimmy Two-Shoes, Stoked), Lisa Lennox (The Doodlebops) and Cal Dodd (X-men t.v. series and video game franchise).

The story is based around Trevor, a young boy who wishes to prove to a girl he is interested in that Santa exists by capturing him for her. Little does he know that LeFreeze, an old adversary of Santa Claus is also out to get him this Christmas Eve.

There are no special features included with this feature, but they aren't really needed here. All in all I would say that if you have small children and can cope with an hour of dubious music and strange psychedelic backgrounds then this one is most definitely for you.

Gotta Catch Santa Claus is available to buy now on DVD.

The Hunger Games get character posters

We have already seen the trailer for The Hunger Games. Now Lionsgate has sent over a set of character posters for the film. Just click on any of the images to make-em-bigger.

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
The Hunger Games is released March 23, 2012.

more of a look at In Time

Fox has just sent over a new clip for the film. I would live to see more action clips than talking heads. We can just hope that that sort is in the works...

CLIP – Everyone Wants to Live Forever
Welcome to a world where time has become the ultimate currency. You stop aging at 25, but there’s a catch: you’re genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The rich “earn” decades at a time (remaining at age 25), becoming essentially immortal, while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day.

When a man from the wrong side of the tracks is falsely accused of murder, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful hostage. Living minute to minute, the duo’s love becomes a powerful tool in their war against the system.

Santa Who? DVD Release Review

Santa Who? is a lovely film and I have given it 3.5 stars.

This is a family film through and through, and captures the spirit of Christmas admirably (yes, there were tears). The film is directed by William Dear (Bigfoot and the Hendersons) and was first released in 2000.

Santa Who? stars the fantastic Lesley Nielsen (Forbidden Planet, The Naked Gun) in the role of Santa Claus and he is very good at it, in fact we think that he might actually be Santa Claus! Also starring are Steven Eckholdt (Message in a Bottle), Robyn Lively (Savannah, Teen Witch) and Max Morrow (Ararat, The Christmas Shoes).

The acting isn't brilliant (except for Lesley Nielsen), and neither is the script really, but it's okay for what it is, a fun, colourful Christmas tale for a family to sit down and watch together in front of the fire, while putting the presents under the tree.

There are no special features included with Santa Who? but hey, who cares? It's Christmas! Thoroughly recommended as an excellent way to get everyone in the mood for the festive season.

Santa Who? is available to buy now on DVD.

Your Mission, if you care to accept it is to watch the below trailer and gawp at the new poster for Tom Cruise's new film, Mission Impossible 4, sorry, Mission Impossible : Ghost Protocol. Why they didn't just stay with what they used in the previous 3 films as the title makes it sound like some strange updating of a Edgar Allan Poe story...

This is not just another mission.

The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this.

MACHINE GUN PREACHER is based on the true story of Sam Childers (Gerard Butler in a tour de force performance), a violent, drug-dealing biker whose faith leads him on a path to East Africa, where he finds his true calling as a machine gun-wielding protector of hundreds of refugee children.

Following a brutal incident, Sam’s loyal wife Lynn (Michelle Monaghan) encourages him to turn to God and he resolves to change the course of his life. Renouncing his hell-raising ways, Sam journeys to Sudan as a missionary to help with the relief effort, leaving his best friend Donnie (Michael Shannon) to take care of his wife and daughter. There, he witnesses the atrocities that the locals endure at the hands of the vicious Lord’s Resistance Army. Villages are razed to the ground, women are raped and children are kidnapped and forced to serve as child soldiers. Horrified by what he sees, Childers becomes an avenging angel set on protecting the innocent. Inspired to create a safe haven for the multitudes fleeing enslavement he restores peace to their lives and, eventually, his own.

Shakespeare the fraud?

I've just been sent over this piece about Roland Emmerich's rewriting of Shakespeare [the man not the plays]. With his track record of rewriting history for his own good. See The Patriot and how the British are depicted.

I have done some research into this using a trustworthy source. Ok, it was wikipedia but that's always a good place to start. The more I read into this the more it comes across that the ‘anti-Stratfordians’ are the same as any conspiracy theorists. ignore the "facts" that don't suit their end.

Also, they claim that no documentary evidence has been found for x, y and z. You could also say that, due to the way things were documented then, this evidence hasn't been uncovered.

OK, That's my rant over and done with so on with the story that I've been sent. If you get bored reading this then you can always head over here and have a go at the Shakespeare Insult Generator.
If William Shakespeare didn’t write the plays and sonnets that have entranced and beguiled generations, then who did? That’s the controversial question at the heart of a new thriller, Anonymous, by acclaimed director Roland Emmerich.

Emmerich (Independence Day, The Patriot, 2012) and writer John Orloff have woven the ultimate literary conspiracy theory into a brilliant historical drama set at the court of Queen Elizabeth I.

The theory that Shakespeare didn’t write Shakespeare – known as the ‘authorship debate’ - has been around for decades and has attracted an illustrious band of supporters down the years.

Academics, actors and writers – including Benjamin Disraeli, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Orson Welles, Sigmund Freud and Sir John Gielgud - have supported the claim that Shakespeare simply didn’t write Shakespeare. Collectively, the doubters are known as ‘anti-Stratfordians.’

They argue that there is no documented evidence that William Shakespeare, an actor and a shareholder at The Globe Theatre, was ever a writer – nothing in his own handwriting has ever been found except six signatures (all spelled differently).

He was one of eight children born to illiterate parents in Stratford [If you can call a glovemaker and wool merchant illiterate - His father was also a councilman - Ed]and there’s nothing to suggest that he had anything but a rudimentary, rather than a classical education.

The doubters point out that the plays reveal an intimate knowledge of the law, medicine and navigation and indeed first hand knowledge of the Royal Court and Renaissance Italy, amongst many other things, and say that the author must have benefited from a first class education, a man well versed in numerous subjects studied to a high level.

Shakespeare, they say, almost certainly never travelled outside of England and there’s no evidence that he spent time as part of Queen Elizabeth’s inner circle.

There have been several contenders who have been touted as the True Bard – including Sir Francis Bacon, Christopher Marlowe, William Stanley, the Earl of Derby and indeed one theory that there was more than one hand at work.

For Emmerich and Orloff (who wrote part of the acclaimed war mini series Band of Brothers and A Mighty Heart, a drama about the kidnapping and murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl) Edward De Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford (played by Rhys Ifans in the film) is a strong candidate.

They put De Vere at the heart of their story as a nobleman forced to keep his identity a secret as he writes the plays that grip an Elizabethan society riven by political intrigue over who will succeed the Queen to the throne.

In their capable hands, Anonymous becomes a gripping thriller as De Vere uses William Shakespeare (played by Rafe Spall) as a shield to conceal his secret and ultimately take claim for a remarkable body of work that has endured for centuries.

“Through my research I became one of these people who believes that the Man from Stratford didn’t write that amazing body of work,” says Emmerich. “And there’s a very strong theory that Oxford did and we use that in our film.”

Ifans is convinced that the film will spark a huge debate when it’s released. Lobbing a literary bomb in amongst the dusty, book lined halls of academia, which Anonymous will undoubtedly do, clearly appeals to the rebel in him.

“Basically, the film is about who wrote Shakespeare,” says Ifans. “And there will be a right old kafuffle and a lot of sweaty old dons reaching for the Valium when this comes out. There’s going to be a lot of dust blown off parchment, I can tell you.

“I’ve researched this heavily, I’ve been reading these big books which are thicker than the Bible and there’s a whole body of evidence which goes a long way to proving that Shakespeare was not necessarily the author of his own works.

“There’s a very, very strong case which goes to prove that Edward de Vere was the author of those works. As an actor I’m very happy that the plays and Sonnets were written by whoever, but it wasn’t William Shakespeare. William Shakespeare is an international brand. I hope our film will entertain, inspire and enrage.”

In the story, de Vere, a nobleman banned from court because of a love affair with the young Queen, is desperate to get his plays staged but has to hide behind an impostor, William Shakespeare, who gladly takes the credit and pretends to be the true author.

“I play William Shakespeare, but a William Shakespeare who is the son of a glove maker, a normal guy, a lucky boy who kind of wins the lottery,” says Spall. “I see him as the kind of guy who you would have a beer with, who you would hang out with, and someone the audience will watch and say ‘maybe I would do the same in that position’ because he got lucky.

“But in a way the audience might see him as a baddie because we suggest he got up to no good. He bribes Oxford, who is the real writer of the plays and we suggest that maybe, for story’s sake, he killed (Christopher) Marlowe.

“But in a way, the way I see, our William Shakespeare as the hero of the piece, because he builds The Globe (theatre) and he keeps the secret and in our story if he hadn’t done that the world wouldn’t have the plays that we have now.”

Orloff fully expects that Anonymous will provoke a heated debate about the authorship question. For some, even suggesting that Shakespeare didn’t write Shakespeare is sacrilege.

“Yes, I think there will be some people who will get upset by this,” he says. “And you know, I’m stunned about how people who don’t know that much about Shakespeare or care that much about Shakespeare in their regular life, who, as soon as we’re at dinner talking about the authorship debate they start frothing at the mouth at me, like ‘what are you talking about? How can you say this?’

“But you know, there is a valid debate to be had about who wrote this incredible material. There is an issue here and it shouldn’t be discounted out of hand. When you tell people that Mark Twain believed that William Shakespeare didn’t write it, and that three US Supreme Court justices felt the same way, they look at you and go ‘really? I had no idea..’

“I think it’s very telling that a lot of writers in particular believe this theory to be true – Twain, (Vladimir) Nabokov, Henry James and it was James who said ‘I’m
haunted by the conviction that it’s the most successful fraud ever perpetuated on an unsuspecting public…’

“I think writers understand the process of writing and when you think about the process of writing these plays they come to the conclusion that it’s kind of unbelievable that Shakespeare wrote them.”

And what does Orloff himself believe? “I’m a very firm anti-Stratfordian. I do not believe Shakespeare wrote the plays in any way, shape or form. I’m tending towards believing Oxford did but I think the group theory has a lot to offer as well. But I’m more of a person who doesn’t believe that Shakespeare wrote the plays more than anything else.”

The debate will, of course, continue and Anonymous will add fuel to the fire and introduce the controversy to a large audience. “And that’s great,” says Emmerich. “I think it’s a good thing when movies can make you think about an issue. Hopefully it’s going to entertain you too, because it’s a great story but if it makes you think as well, then all the better.”
Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature.

Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

15 years after his death (Dec 16, 1961 – 26 Feb, 1994), Bill Hicks is now more popular than ever, and is widely seen as one of the best comedian of the modern era. However, in America, where he challenged institutions and accepted ways of thinking, he suffered censorship and was never truly recognised by a wide audience. In the country which enshrines freedom of speech in its constitution his story is truly about what it means to be an American.

Now Bill’s remarkable story is brought to life in AMERICAN: THE BILL HICKS STORY, a feature-length documentary which combines live action with a stunning new animation technique manipulating 1,000s of photographs to uniquely immerse the audiences in his world, which is re-told from the point-of-view of the people who shared it with him.

Aargh, a new trailer

Sony has just sent over a new trailer that is even better than the last, international, one

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a young Charles Darwin (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
