The Beatles

Not too long ago it was reported that the king of motion capture, Robert Zemeckis, would be remaking The Beatles‘ animated film, Yellow Submarine, using the technology. Now this new project has its cast of four actors who will be offering their voices to the movie as the four legendary Beatles.

The trades are reporting that Cary Elwes, Dean Lennox Kelly, Peter Serafinowicz, and Adam Campbell are all in negotiations for the roles (Click image to see all four in comparison). Elwes is the best known of the bunch with his roles in movies like The Princess Bride and Robin Hood: Men in Tights; he would be voicing George Harrison. Peter Serafinowicz isn’t a household name here in the States, but you may know him better than you think. He’s very popular overseas and has appeared as Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s flatmate in Shaun of the Dead, as well as on the popular series Spaced. Serafinowicz would be handling the voice of Paul McCartney. Lennox Kelly would be appearing as John Lennon in the film, and has appeared in The Secret Life of Words as well as popular shows Doctor Who and Robin Hood. Finally, Campbell would be voicing Ringo Starr; he appeared in the recent TV show Harper’s Island, and is looking to find more forgiveness for previous roles in the hated Epic Movie and Date Movie.

DVD Review: Beowulf (Blu-ray)

By Three D

Beowulf Blu-ray DVDBeowulf
Blu-ray
Directed by Robert Zemeckis
Starring Ray Winstone, Angelina Jolie, Anthony Hopkins, Robin Wright
Paramount Home Video
Release Date: July 29, 2008

The only ancient element that you’ll find in this movie is the haunting music being played. Being it is the 21st century, and this being a circa 500 A.D. epic poem, the poem has founded the powerful steroid. When Beowulf is injected with it, boy, does the movie turn out to be an unrelenting, ruthless, and great action film that hit’s a towering homerun. What then had school lads pulling their hair out and reading Cliff Notes instead of the actual poem, will find themselves salivating and standing in long lines over Robert Zemeckis’ (who tried this motion-capture technique before with Polar Express) wonderful creation. The ancient world that he paints for us is unbelievable and has us wanting more.

Could this movie have worked if it was made with “real” people and “real” settings? I doubt that. Zemeckis really gives birth to such creatures (did we really picture Grendel like that, his mother sure is sexy, and a dragon whose heart looks like any other heart) that only computer animation can bring to life. As far as our actors go, the screenplay team who worked on Pulp Fiction can only help, you really won’t be able to tell the difference.
