Adam McKay Considering Directing A Marvel Movie
eelyajekiM   |  

Adam McKay Image

Edgar Wright dropping out of Ant-Man wasn’t the best thing to happen to the film, but there was some good that came out of it. Adam McKay was brought in to polish the script, and even film star Paul Rudd had a hand in some of the rewrites. While too many writers working on one script could muck up the story, McKay and Rudd know each other well enough not to step on each others’ toes.

And now that McKay has had a taste of what it has been like to work at Marvel — he was even one of the frontrunners to direct Ant-Man — he is thinking directing something else for them.

Disney In Depth: The Legacy Collection: Mary Poppins CD Review
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

Walt Disney Records’ Legacy Collection’s excellent streak of soundtracks continues with its August 2014 release that commemorated the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins, considered by many critics as one of Walt Disney’s greatest achievements. Its Oscar-winning song, “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” and the other cheerful tunes and score are as ingrained in our minds as Julie Andrews‘ and Dick Van Dyke‘s unforgettable performances.

This new CD set remarkably integrates nearly every musical element of the film possible across three packed discs. The Legacy Collection: Mary Poppins is even sweeter than a spoonful of sugar.

It features cast and crew from those movies, such as star Elijah Wood, director Sir Peter Jackson, actor Dean O’Gorman (Fili), actor Sylvester McCoy (Radagast), and Weta co-founder and five-time Oscar-winning special effects, makeup, and costume design wiz Sir Richard Taylor.

‘The Wild Bunch’ and ‘Midnight Cowboy’ Turn 45 This Year
Stoogeypedia   |  

The Wild Bunch

Two landmark motion pictures have hit the 45th anniversary milestone this year, and both of them were instrumental in helping usher in the kind of norms, sensibilities, and somewhat radical attitudes that were beginning to burgeon in Tinseltown as the 1960s gave way to the 1970s.

One of them, The Wild Bunch, took screen violence and the western narrative to an entirely different level; the other, Midnight Cowboy, not only became the first X-rated motion picture to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it also exemplified a kind of realistic film in which the narrative doused its characters in strife, pain, and struggle, and didn’t offer a seamless resolution at its denouement, but rather the contrary. Its kind of downer tale also became a style and staple for many of the films which followed it into the mid 1970s such as Scarecrow, The Last Detail, etc.

The commercial is a homage to the late Stanley Kubrick’s classic adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining, recreating the famous scene in which Danny rides around the Overlook Hotel on his Big Wheel tricycle before coming face-to-face with those nightmare-inducing ghost twins.

You can watch the commercial below.
