Movie Review: The Snowman

Hanna Movie Review By: SandwichJohn

Hanna Movie Review By: SandwichJohn
I have to start off by saying that this movie was honestly really well made. The direction in the film was just amazing, and the entire movie was like a painting in the making, by the end of the film you got to see the master piece. The Best movie of the year so far. Make sure to come back later this week for my interview with director Joe Wright and star Saorise Ronan.


If your going into the film wanting a straight action film then this movie isn't what your looking for. The story is the true star of the movie with superb action thrown in.


The movie was directed by Joe Wright who is not known for action movies at all. He is known more for directing period pieces. He has directed films like Pride & Prejudice, Oscar nominated Atonement and The Soloist. With this being his first taste directing action films, I think this is one path if he decides to continue down would be a nice change for the genre of directing action films. And the score fo…

Anna Faris Is Going To Stalk Us

Paramount has picked up an untitled comedy pitch from Anna Faris as a starring vehicle for the multi-hyphenate. Joe Roth and Palak Patel of Roth Films are on board to produce.

While details of the plot are being kept under wraps, the story revolves around Faris and a new roommate, who turns out to be a stalker from hell.
The idea for the project came from Faris’ reps — her agent at Gersh and manager at Anonymous Content — after they heard the comedienne recount a funny incident that happened to her in real life.

The idea was further developed by writer Deanna Kizis (who co-wrote Camp Rules for Montecito) and Patel. Kizis will now write the script

Faris will exec produce with Doug Wald.

One of the few female comedic actresses that can open movies, Faris (Scary Movie, The House Bunny) will next star in Fox’s What’s Your Number, which opens September 30.

Steven Spielberg's Terra Nova In Trouble?

In January, Fox executives gave TV critics gathered for their winter meeting an upbeat appraisal of the network's costly and ambitious sci-fi series Terra Nova. With Steven Spielberg lending the project his dinosaur cred, Terra Nova had already attracted lots of interest on the Internet, with fans panting to get a look at a two-hour preview set for May.

But even then, key players on the project suspected that the chances of delivering that preview were not good. And though Fox promoted the series during the Super Bowl in February, the network acknowledged weeks later that it would not launch until fall because its visual effects "require more time to be realized."
But sources involved with the project say the situation was more complicated than that. With more than a dozen executive producers credited on the pilot and an array of writers coming and going, the series returned from its shoot in Australia in December without enough footage to create the promised two-hour op…

Justin Lin Talks Terminator & Arnold Schwarzenegger

Collider got the chance to talk Fast Five director Justin Lin about the possibility of him directing a new Terminator film and working with Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Briefly, Lin says he has a take on Terminator he would like to see and that he’s spoken with Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, he’s also looking at other projects and hasn't decided what will be his next directing gig.

Speaking of big-budget movies and studio franchises, there’s a lot of talk about you getting to do the Terminator franchise. Is this happening? Are you looking forward to it?

JUSTIN LIN: I think one of the great things is that when I got started, no one would return my calls, and now I get a lot of phone calls, which is good. I have options. Terminator was one of my favorite films growing up. And I feel I have a take that I would love to see, and I’ve talked with Arnold and we’ve talked and we’ll see. Again, I would love to do it, but it has to be the right circumstances. It has to be the right people…

X-Men: First Class Possible Sequel In The Works

The talent behind X-Men: First Class have revealed possible ideas for the next chapters in the mutant superhero saga.

The ending of First Class sets up a potential sequel that will be “even more fun”, according to director Matthew Vaughn.
“First Class is similar to Batman Begins, where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time,” .
“But with the second one you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time,” he continues. “That’s the main difference between Begins and The Dark Knight.”

With First Class set in 1962, part two could move on to the late ‘60s – a period Vaughn is keen to x-plore.

“1962 is far more grounded in the world of the ’50s,” he says. “I think it takes about five years for a decade to really start getting its identity, so the fun thing about this for me would be doing [a sequel] in the latter part of the decade, where you’ve got The Stones, The Beatles, Flower Power…”

There’s also the possibility that the next…

Mickey Rourke Honest & Brutal About Upcoming Films & How Terrible They Are.He Keeps It Real

Mickey Rourke got straight to the point when asked about some of his upcoming films. And he is honest and brutal with his answers.

I think that it is refreshing when an actor can be honest and be true to himself. But I am sure he will be catching alittle heat over his comments.

Rourke talks about how "Terrible" his film "13" in which he stars along side 50 Cent and Jason Statham. Then the shit hit the fan when he talks about his upcoming film "Passion Play", his movie with Megan Fox, an actress he previously described as "the most talented" he'd ever worked with.

You have to see how brutal he is after the Jump....

Let’s start with horror movies: You a fan?
Depends.

On what?
If there’s nothing else to watch. I came here to see Harvey. I don’t know nothing about the movie.

What about 50 Cent? He’s hosting.
I haven’t seen him.

You guys are in a movie together, right?
A really bad movie, yeah.

What?! Is it out?
No, it’s so bad it can’t get out.
