Boardwalk Empire New Series From HBO-Launches Tommorow!!!

18 Sep

http://donnadestefano.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/boardwalk-empire-la-1-14-10.jpg?w=490

Boardwalk Empire is an upcoming American television series from premium cable network HBO, set in Atlantic City, New Jersey during the Prohibition era. Starring Steve Buscemi, the show is adapted from Nelson Johnson’s book, Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City by Emmy award-winning screenwriter and producer Terence Winter of The Sopranos.

The first episode was directed by Martin Scorsese. On September 1, 2009, HBO picked up the series for an additional 11 episodes. The series is scheduled to debut on September 19, 2010.

Filming was done on a specially created set in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Martin Scorsese’s Contribution

Martin Scorsese was involved in the project even before creator Terence Winter. He directed the pilot and established the look of the show, which other directors later emulated to make the show feel seamless. He is also one of the executive producers of the show. Winter stated that Scorsese weighs on the casting decisions, watches all the cuts and dailies. Up until the shooting of the show’s first season, Scorsese and Winter would meet every Sunday afternoon to review what went on during the week where Scorsese would have comments and suggestion. Martin Scorsese is expected to continue to be creatively involved in the ongoing production and if the series continues—with proper scheduling—he would like to direct more episodes.

Reception

The series has received universal acclaim. Review aggregate Metacritic awarded the series a score of 90 out of 100, based on 24 reviews, indicating Universal Acclaim.

Mad Men Soundtrack

15 Sep

The absolutely brilliant conceit of Mad Men, the award winning AMC cable TV series from the US, gives us an ensemble cast of attractive actors set in a turn of the 60′s New York Ad agency locale and allows the writers to microscopically dissect the grime under the superficially perfect patina of these proto-Masters of the Universe.

The series’ sense of time and place is impeccably recreated. The set design, wardrobe, and make up are a wonder to behold. The Madison Avenue offices of Sterling-Cooper are realised with a knowing eye for detail, and within this mise en scène, the comings and goings of the agency’s ruthlessly competitive ad men are stunningly brought to life. Wreathed in cigarette smoke and with a hip flask a de rigour accoutrement, 1960 never looked so cool.

As the first season unfolded and we were getting used to the series’ main protagonist, the driven and mercurial Don Draper, cracks began to appear in these breezily perfect lives. Alcoholism, self-doubt, infidelity, racism and mental illness all bubble to the surface and splinter the veneer. It was the look of the series that drew us all in, it was the perceptive and intelligent writing that kept us watching.

By definition the soundtrack release of Season One of Mad Men largely reflects the superficial gloss of the series. Accurately recreating aurally what the series does visually, the CD is lush soundscape of well known standards of the era. Vic Damone, Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney, Gordon Jenkins are all present and correct. Julie London pitches in with her version of “Fly me to the Moon”, which coincidentally was used here in the UK a few years back very successfully in an ad campaign for Ford’s latest coupé The Probe. For the most part you can sit back with a faraway look on your modular sofa, whiskey tumbler in one hand, and cigarette dangling in the other and bang – you’re there in 1960 Manhattan.

The main theme, a descending möbius strip of quasi-classical hip hop lushness is called “A Beautiful Mine” and was written by Eddie Hayes, aka Aceyalone. It suits the opening credits perfectly and is used so sparingly as to leaving you wanting more, and here you can enjoy it in all its 5:29 glory.

The standards are well chosen, from the obvious choices such as “Manhattan” by Ella, and The McGuire Sisters robust version of “Volare”, its easy when listening to conjure up the series in your head.

There is underscore here, composed by David Carbonara, and for the most part is suitably easy listening. He does offer a few tracks that get under the skin of the series main protagonists, and in the track “Mad Men Suite” reflects the self doubts and underlying melancholia of some of the characters. The song “Babylon” jars slightly as a listening experience when set against the rest of the CD but it features aptly in the episode of the same name, wherein Don visits a Greenwich Village beat club and hears a singer plaintively singing this lament which cuts Draper to the bone. The song, originally made well known by Don McLean illustrates the flip side of the dream that Draper is determined to keep going by sheer force of will alone.

The Mad Men soundtrack is a great audio representation of the shows biggest draws, the glamour, the high life, the gloss, and the nostalgia for a perceived utopian era.

Spiderman 4 Changes?!

2 Sep

in 2007, Spider-Man 4 entered development, with Raimi attached to direct and Maguire, Dunst and other cast members set to reprise their roles. Both a fourth and a fifth movie were planned, and at one time the idea ofshooting the two sequels concurrently was under consideration. However, Raimi stated in March 2009 that only the fourth film was currently in development and that if there were fifth and sixth films, the two films would actually be a continuation of each other.James Vanderbilt was hired in October 2007 to pen the screenplay, after initial reports in early 2007 that Sony Pictures was in contact with David Koepp, who wrote the first Spider-Man film.[35][36] The script was subsequently rewritten by Pulitzer-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, and rewritten again by Gary Ross in October 2009.[37] Sony also engaged Vanderbilt to write scripts for Spider-Man 5 and Spider-Man 6.[36]

In 2007, Raimi expressed interest in portraying the transformation of Dr. Curt Connors into his villainous alter-ego, the Lizard; the character’s actor Dylan Baker and producer Grant Curtis have also been enthusiastic about the idea.[38][39][40] It was reported in December 2009 that John Malkovich was in negotiations to play Vulture, and that Anne Hathaway would play Felicia Hardy, though she would not have transformed into the Black Cat, as in the comics. Instead, Raimi’s Felicia was expected to become a brand-new superpowered figure called the Vulturess.[41]

Sony Pictures announced in January 2010 that plans for Spider-Man 4 had been cancelled due to Raimi’s withdrawal from the project. Raimi reportedly ended his participation due to doubt that he could meet the planned May 6, 2011 release date while upholding the film creatively.[42]

Simultaneous with the cancellation of Spider-Man 4, Sony announced that the franchise would be rebooted with a new director and new cast. The reboot film is scheduled to be released on July 3, 2012 in 3-D and will focus on Peter Parker developing his abilities in high school.[42][43] Sony also confirmed that James Vanderbilt will write the script for the new film and Marc Webb will direct the next Spider-Man film.[44] Entertainment Weekly called Vanderbilt’s script “gritty, contemporary” and referenced Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the Batman film series, which also reinvented the tone of the series.[45] There is speculation that the reboot will be based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comics. Evidence of this includes Brian Michael Bendis, creator of the Ultimate Spider-Man series, meeting with the movie crew. Bendis tweeted, “Just spent a very interesting morning at Sony with the entire spidey movie team!! Very very cool stuff!!”[46] Alvin Sargent has been hired to re-write the script.[47] On June 9, 2010 rumours surfaced that the villain for the new reboot could be the Lizard.[48] The film will begin shooting in December 2010 in Los Angeles.[49]

In May 2010, the list of actors to play Spider-Man included Jamie Bell, Josh Hutcherson, Frank Dillane, Alden Ehrenreich and Andrew Garfield.[50]However, in June 2010 the Los Angeles Times reported that the shortlist expanded to include Aaron Johnson and Anton Yelchin.[51] The final shortlist was reported to also include Logan Lerman and Michael Angarano.[52] On June 27, 2010, the final and confirmed short list was announced. Jamie Bell (Flags of Our Fathers), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Andrew Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), and Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro) were all on it.[53] On July 1, 2010, it was officially confirmed that the role will go to Andrew Garfield.[1] Garfield is almost 27, raising concerns about his ability to play a high school student. The website HitFix has reported that Sony has realized this and instead the new movie will have Parker starting the series as a college student.[2] Actress Elena Satine has auditioned for the part of Mary Jane Watson.

Jackass 3D

2 Sep

Jackass 3D, also known as Jackass Number 3 is an upcoming 3-D film of the Jackass series. In December 2009, Paramount Pictures and MTV Films announced an October 15, 2010 release.The movie will mark the 10th anniversary of the franchise, started in 2000.
Production
n December 2009, director Jeff Tremaine began doing camera tests with the 3D equipment.In that same month, Johnny Knoxville announced the return of the entire cast of the previous two movies.
Filming of the stunts began on January 25, 2010,Tremaine filmed the crew on private property unlike the traditional Jackass fashion of filming in the streets, and it includes “occasional forays to foreign countries.” Bam Margera said that in the first month of filming, he already has 3 broken ribs, resulting in him having to “rest it up at home” until he can return. On April 17, 2010 Margera told the Artisan News Service the movie was 70% done and half the crew had been to the hospital with Margera having “three broken ribs and a broken shoulder and a twisted ankle as we speak.”

In April 2010, JackassWorld.com was closed, leaving a posting that says “gone filmin’,” and “Thanks for the support the past two years. To keep abreast and adick of all things related to the world of jackass and Dickhouse (including the currently in production flick jackass 3D), follow us on Facebook and Twitter.” A recent online interview with Rick Kosick reveals that JackassWorld.com will no longer be a web site after the movie releases.

Cameraman Lance Bangs told TimesOnline, that “It’s utterly crazy. Everything in 3-D looks as brightly colored as candy. I’m a cameraman on it, and it’s amazing to watch the footage being turned 3-D, like watching everything through a viewfinder.” He later went on to say “I thought I was above peer pressure, but there’s such camaraderie. I took part in a few stunts and ended up humiliated and hurt — me, the poetic film-maker friend of Spike Jonze.”

In late May 2010, Knoxville has stated that Steve-O’s sobriety is at its best and “There is no beer on set this time around even if some of us wish there was”. He also said “And to be honest it’s going great. Everyone has had different injuries throughout which is a good sign and Steve-O is probably getting the best footage out of everybody. He is really going for it. He wants to prove to everyone he can do these stunts sober. It’s been two years since he had a drink now. Everyone has been real supportive of him.”

At the MTV Movie Awards on June 6, Tremaine said filming was nearly finished but they hadn’t shot internationally yet but intended to shoot “a couple of bits”.

An injury to cast member Margera forced a rewrite for the beginning of the movie. On June 12, 2010, Margera was beaten on the head with a bat by a 59 year old African-American woman outside of his bar, The Note. The lady alleged Bam called her a ‘nigger’ and that she was offended, but did not hit him. When Margera was approached by TMZ two days after the incident, he told them he “never used the n-word” and that “[the lady] attacked me times before”. He explained:

I was internally bleeding in the brain for two days and they wouldn’t let me leave the hospital. I was like, ‘I need to go to Los Angeles in six hours to go finish Jackass.’ We start tomorrow and I’m supposed to get hit in the head and now I can’t because of her.

Margera added in the same interview that the opening sequence is being shot with Phantom high speed cameras, which record at 1,000 frames per second to produce hyper-slow motion, similar to the opening sequence of Zombieland.
On July 21, 2010, the first official image surfaced. It appeared on the official Jackass Facebook page, which shows Knoxville soaring through the air on a jet ski. The caption explained, “Johnny Knoxville takes to the three-dimensional skies in a ‘first look’ preview of things to come at you in jackass 3D”

In late July 2010, Paramount and MTV Films screened the first footage from Jackass 3D at a special event during Comic-Con 2010 in its 3D format. The event allowed fans to meet the Jackass crew and eat food. Some of the footage consisted of “bull riding, a rocket jetski, shots of someone blowing a paper party whistle at the camera using only their butthole and a giant hand slapping Margera across the face” and one in particular called “The Poo Cocktail Supreme” in which Steve-O is strapped into a porta potty (filled with feces) with a bungee cord attached, and then is dropped from a large height.

On August 5, 2010, the official trailer premiered on channels owned by Viacom, such as MTV, VH1, and Spike TV. It is also attached with The Expendables and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

To celebrate the film’s release, Johnny Knoxville and the Jackass 3D crew in collaboration with WonderHowTo have launched the Jackass 3D Prank Contest. The winner of the wildest prank idea wins a trip out to Hollywood to shoot the prank with the cast of Jackass 3D. The contest ends 11:59pm PST, September 26, 2010.

One of the stunts Bam Margera stated he intended to film was entitled “The Worst Wake-up in the World” in which himself and Ryan Dunn would wake up Bam’s fellow friend Brandon Novak with “Defibrillators, then urinate onto his face, throw flour on him to cake the urine, punch him in each eye, and then release six vampire bats into the room, and lock the door”.

According to Deadline.com, a stunt called “The Heli-cockter” has also been filmed and shown to Paramount executives in its 3D format to greenlight the project. Chris Pontius tethered a remote control-operated helicopter from his penis, and grinned while he swung it around.

According to Bam Margera at a concert for the Finnish band HIM, he was made to face his fear and jump into a pit of snakes by the other cast members, in order for him to see the band play.

Artisan News Service in an interview with Bam, asked what stunt he felt was the craziest filmed so far. In reply he said “Urm…I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ll just say that…I was hanging on a tree, 20 feet above and I let go, and I fell 10 feet onto my nuts on another branch, and then I fell on my face…and that’s how I broke my shoulder.”

BareBonesMusic.com caught up with Bam on the Black Carpet at the Revolver Magazine’s Golden Gods Awards, in which he said he was currently filming that day, assuming he’s recovered and is back to doing stunts.

In unison with the current The Dudesons In America MTV series, Knoxville stated that the Dudesons will be making an appearance in Jackass 3D.

On June 7, 2010 Bam stated on Radio Bam that he got into a fight with fellow cast member Ehren McGhehey and also broke Steve-o’s nose during filming. Chad Ginsburg also stated on the show, that his band CKY have made a song for the movie.

In an interview with Knoxville on the Adam Carolla show, he stated “That he loves it” (referring to performing in Jackass) and that “He’s right back into the nonsense that is Jackass, in this third installment, and that there’s a lot of close calls” in terms of danger, etc. He also mentioned that with animals such as bulls and snakes being regularly used and always delivering good footage, there are a number of stunts in this installment featuring them. Johnny also mentioned other aspects in the interview, including censorship issues and Steve-o’s recovery from his past addictions.

According to an article at Peace FM Online, Knoxville attempted a stunt in which he threw a basketball off of a Ferris wheel, trying to a hit a trampoline below, to then hit fellow cast member Chris Pontius in the “family jewels”.

According to Collider.com, one of the stunts shown at the Comic Con was a paintball shootout of sorts, in which it was “Shot perfectly for 3D”. They went on to say “The camera started on the left and dollied to the right. As it dollied, the person in the center of the frame was close to the camera while the person getting shot was further back so you could really see the distance. As the camera moved, the shooter looked at the camera and was smiling while firing. Towards the end of the shot, he let at least 15 bullets fly and with the sequence being done in slow motion and in 3D, it was amazing. We were all laughing hysterically while the person getting shot was screaming in pain”

In an interview with Iamrogue.com, Bam Margera told how one of his favorite pranks was one in which he taped a small camera to the end of his penis, and urinated on fellow cast members. This was also given the 3D treatment.

In August 2010, Rivers Cuomo confirmed that a Weezer song will be featured in the film.

About Avatar 2

2 Sep

HollywoodNews.com: You want hints about the “Avatar” sequels?

James Cameron says that the follow-up to the highest grossing film of all time will take place underwater in the oceans of Pandora.

The director promises the film will be “equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative” as the first film’s backdrop. He would like to lense both the second and third installments back to back. This shooting process isn’t uncommon as it was employed by the last two sequels of “Back to the Future” and “The Matrix” movies.

Speaking to MTV News, Cameron exclaimed, “I think what we should do there is – because we’ll have to have characters that are in and under the water – is that we should actually capture them underwater.

“It’s not the same as going diving, but I like to keep my diving, which I do for pleasure, separate from work.

“Diving for shooting a movie is work. Diving for exploration is a gas. I like to keep my peas and carrots separate.”
