Mulan

Disney has put their live-action Mulan on the fast track to production by scheduling the film for a fall 2018 release. The studio is moving quickly to find an all Asian cast and an Asian director. Disney made an offer to Academy Award winner Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), but he declined.

But the mouse house isn’t the only studio working on a Mulan project. Sony is working on one as well, and the race is on. More on the story below.

Ang Lee Hulk Honest Trailer Screen Junkie

If it’s a week day, and you’re bored… Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers are the perfect medicine, so here’s a new one.

Marvel is pretty much untouchable lately. 2014 brought us the most fun superhero movie since the original Avengers in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and they’ve already scored in 2015 with Netflix’s Daredevil series. This week is one close to my heart. A movie heatedly debated between me and my friend Chris for YEARS! With Avengers: Age of Ultron premiering this Friday, May 1st, let’s travel back to 2003 to mock one of the biggest Marvel flops, Ang Lee’s Hulk!

“You loved Mark Ruffalo. You tolerated Edward Norton. But admit it; you forgot about Eric Bana until I said his name just now.”

Check out that video and a bonus one here below.

Sam Mendes directs Daniel Craig in Skyfall

It was recently reported that Skyfall director Sam Mendes was likely to return to direct Bond 24. This comes after repeated exclamations that he would not return to direct due to his obligation to produce the theatrical version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and an adaptation of King Lear.

However, the director reportedly entered into talks with EON Productions and Sony Pictures to come back direct another Bond film. Now, there are a few more details coming out of those talks which are pinning the filmmaker to possibly directing not one but two James Bond films.

According to ShowBiz411, Mendes is coming back for Bond 24 and will end up directing Bond 25 as well.

Life of Pi PosterLife of Pi
Directed by Ang Lee
Written by David Magee
Starring Suraj Sharma, Tabu, Adil Hussain, Irrfan Khan, Rafe Spall
20th Century Fox
Rated PG | 127 Minutes
Release Date: November 21, 2012
Purchase Tickets on Fandango

Based on the 2001 novel of the same name by Yann Martel, Life of Pi is directed by Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) from an adapted screenplay by David Magee (Finding Neverland) and Martin Solibakke.

Lee’s film stars Suraj Sharma (who makes his acting debut) as Pi, a 16-year-old boy stranded at sea after the steamliner carrying his family’s zoo sinks during a terrifying and astonishing storm.

Pi finds himself trapped on a lifeboat with a fearsome (and hungry) Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Over the course of months, the two unlikely castaways must depend on each other to survive.

Life of Pi is one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful, visually staggering films I have ever seen. And while I’ve been known for uncontrollable fits of exaggeration and hyperbole, I have never been so sure of my own amazement. The cinematography by Claudio Miranda (Tron: Legacy, Zodiac) combined with Lee’s masterful use of 3D make Life of Pi a mind-blowing cinematic journey.

David Fincher

David Fincher fans may want to stop waiting for his Cleopatra film, starring Angelina Jolie, to start filming, because he will never get around to directing it. Vulture is reporting that talks between Fincher and Sony Pictures have broken down, and Fincher has now taken himself out of the director’s spot. The studio does however have a couple of candidates in mind that could replace Fincher.

Among those Sony is considering is Academy Award-winning Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain). However, the report says that no official offer has been made nor has anyone entered negotiations.

Life of Pi

Fox went with an unconventional idea with promoting their upcoming film The Life of Pi. Rather than release a traditional trailer, the studio moved forward with releasing a variety of small clips from the film in front of their movies like Prometheus. We’ve also seen a few pieces of promotional artwork for the film.

Now The Life of Pi has a full-length trailer, and it’s nothing short of amazing. Check it out below.

Fox’s Unconventional Marketing Campaign For Ang Lee’s ‘Life Of Pi’

Life of Pi Header

Last week we reported that exclusive scenes from Ang Lee’s Life of Pi were been shown in front of 3D showings for Fox movies. Prometheus was the first, and more scenes will be shown when Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits theaters later this month. Now I am kind of upset at myself for not watching Prometheus in 3D.

It’s a new strategy for the studio to get audiences interested in the movie. They haven’t even shown a teaser trailer yet. I haven’t heard any reactions to these clips so I can’t make any real judgments. Perhaps it’s because the audience didn’t know what Life of Pi is to begin with.

But as Fox continues to push this new way to market the film, the studio has released a very brief clip from Life of Pi. Check it out below.

Fox Attaches ‘Life Of Pi’ Clips Before ‘Prometheus’ and More

Life of Pi

Trailers are cut and edited to fit a short time span to tell a story, set up the character, and build some sort of anticipation. Most of these trailers are just a montage of short clips, but Fox has decided to go an unconventional route with Ang Lee’s adaptation of Life of Pi. Rather than have those montage of clips, the studio has decided to show full-length clips from the film. According to the report there will be more clips that are attached to showings of Ice Age: Continental Drift and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

According to the New York Times, these clips will appear in front of the showings for Prometheus. Not only that, but they will be presented in 3D. It should be interesting to see what kind of footage we will be seeing from Lee’s latest directorial effort. Hopefully these clips are compelling enough to get audiences excited to see Life of Pi, which will open in theaters this November.
