Yesterday’s News: March 11th, 2013

March 10th: Oz the Great and Powerful held up to expectations this weekend with an estimated $80 million opening, as Jack the Giant Slayer continued to disappoint by plummeting 63% in its second frame. The point being, if you’re going to explore a fantastical new world, better arrive via twister than beanstalk. Source: Box Office Mojo

March 8th: Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros announced that Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s follow-up to The Dark Knight Rises, will be released on November 7, 2014. Details of the film are largely unknown other than being a “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Bill Nye, the Science Guy, is in talks for the lead with Mr. Wizard making a cameo from beyond the grave.

March 6th: Director Sam Mendes has announced that he will not direct the follow-up to Skyfall, the biggest Bond film of all-time. Beyond his theater commitments, Mendes claims to have been “shaken, not stirred” by the offer to direct Bond 24. Source: Empire Magazine

March 5th: In the biggest upset since Ben Affleck’s Best Director snub at the Oscars, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was completely shut-out of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, paving the way for Ted and Django Unchained to lead with 7 nominations each. When asked for a comment, Affleck said: “Seriously?” Source: MTV

Media For Lunch: Oz the Great and Powerful

With only one week away from the opening of Sam Raimi’s Oz The Great and Powerful, Disney releases a new poster and a fourth trailer. I don’t know about you but I’ve been clicking my heels together with excitement at some of the beautiful imagery I have seen; the trailers and posters (designed by BLT Communications) are lush and have whet my appetite for more.  It’s hard to imagine how anyone can make a movie about what happened just before Dorothy’s house landed on the Wicked Witch of the East, but I’m sure that in the capable hands of Sam Raimi—who directed the Evil Dead trilogy, Spider-Man, and more recently, Drag Me to Hell—we will not be disappointed.

 “Basically, how do you make a prequel to everyone’s childhood?” “Very carefully,” said Mr. Raimi in Entertainment Weekly. 



Disney Synopsis: Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking-that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well. When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great wizard-and just maybe into a better man as well.

March 2013 in Film

Opening in March

March 1

21 (Scott Moore and Jon Lucas) – A college drinking and wild antics film. The Hangover meets Animal 
House, though probably not as good as either.

Jack the Giant Slayer (Bryan Singer) – 3D Remake (reimagining?  You be the judge.) of the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Stoker (Park Chan-wook)

Phantom (Todd Robinson) – David Duchovny’s big comeback?  Probably not.

The Last Exorcism Part II (Ed Glass-Donnelly) – Adding a ‘Part II’ instead of a ‘2’ doesn’t make a film better.

Oz the Great and Powerful

March 8

Dead Man Down (Niels Arden Oplev) – Marketed as “From the director of the ‘original’ Girl With the 

Dragon Tattoo.– Not sure what they’re implying about the American Version.

Oz the Great and Powerful (Sam Raimi) – Inspired by L. Frank Baum’s original novel, this film is a loose prequel to the original The Wizard of Oz.  Much as the first film introduced color to an entire generation, Oz will attempt to bring 3D, Imax, 11.1 surround sound, CGI and other modern film techniques to the forefront. Actors preformed on combination green screen and practical sets to create a fictional world that has just as much life as the real one.


March 15

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

The Call (Brad Anderson) – What is with Halle Berry’s hair in this movie?

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone(Don Scardino) – This flew under the radar for a while, which doesn’t give me a positive image of it.

March 22

Admission (Paul Weitz)

Olympus Has Fallen 

Olympus Has Fallen (Antoine Fuqua) – Of the two, White-House-gets-taken-over-by-terrorists films coming out this year, I like this one better because it has Morgan Freeman in it, although White House Down has Jaime Foxx as president.  It’ll be a debate.

Spring Breakers (Harmony Korine) – I wonderf if it will be anything like Kids?
 
The Croods
(Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco) – See last month’s article on the Berlin Film Festival for my prerelease thoughts on this one.


March 27

Trance (Danny Boyle) – It’s Danny Boyle doing a crime movie.  So of course it has hypnotists and James McAvoy and reality blurring and a pretty cool poster. [To be released 5 April 2013 here stateside]

March 29

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Jon Chu) – I can’t tell you how excited I am for this ridiculous action movie that will have a thin, terrible plot, lots of explosions and the Rock just being badass.

Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor (Tyler Perry) – People keep going to these, I guess.

The Host (Andrew Niccol) – I seriously can’t believe that Niccol is making this.  I just can’t believe it.


The Place Beyond the Pines (Derek Cianfrance) – Gosling went from “that guy from The Notebook” to “Ryan #%$&ing Gosling” and Cooper got an Academy Award Nomination over the past year, let’s see what they can do together.
