What a week! We were given not one, not two, but three trailers for three films that are arguably the most anticipated (at least by me) for next year. Having these three teaser trailer coming out in the same week puts me in geek-gasm overload. We’ll do these in alphabetical order. First up we have the one that I get goosebumps from even watching because I so love ‘Batman Begins’ and ‘The Dark Knight’. Both of which were on my list of the best films of the last decade. So the final chapter in this trilogy, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, still in the hands of Christopher Nolan just fills me with the anticipation as only a film geek can have. AAAHHH!! Talk about thanking the movie gods for working out all of the idiotic crap that went on to finally have back at the helm Peter Jackson to bring ‘The […]
I just read over at Blu-ray.com that one of my all time favorite movies ‘Jaws‘ is finally coming to Blu-ray on (tentatively) August 14th of next year. While I think coming out closer to the 4th of July is more fitting I am just happy it is finally coming out. And I think this goes well with my last post on Steven Spielberg. Now here’s hoping to get ‘Raiders Of The Lost Ark‘ on Blu-ray next year too …
Today is Steven Spielberg’s birthday and as a huge fan of his I want to wish him all the best. He is one of my favorite directors and someone who has inspired me greatly. The “Indianapolis Speech” alone from ‘Jaws’ (one of my favorite scenes ever committed to celluloid) is worthy of him being one of my favorites but with such a career and he is still pumping them out. So I hope Mr. Spielberg has an amazing birthday today and here’s to many more to come. My friend Billy pointed me to this video over at Fandor.com where they did a cool video posted below about the “Spielberg Face”. A specific use of close ups that Spielberg uses in his films and the evolution of it.
A few changes are underway. After ‘Dark Light’ got put on hold I admit it really got to me. It’s not easy to see a project you spent a year of your life on not progress and then make the decision to shut down production and regroup. In the time that I have been looking into options I decided to try a slightly different route with it. I am running through the possibility of it to see if it is indeed how I want to proceed with it. I can’t say what I am thinking just yet but I will announce it whichever way I decide to take the future of ‘Dark Light’. All I can say is the project is far from over. A few other projects are in the early works too. It is no secret I have been dying to do another horror film. And I have […]
