See? Told You.
If we really wanted to, we could’ve put a much more disturbing picture of Mr. Radcliffe, so be grateful for small gifts like this:
Anyway, off the back of news that Half Blood Prince has been delayed to July ’09, and the new rumour that the reasoning behind it is due to Radcliffe getting all nekkid and beastial for the Broadway release of Equus, which was due to bow around the same time as The Half Blood Prince‘s original November release, is something even more disturbing:
“At first I thought I’d have pants (underwear) on for the scene, but apparently not. But I’ve sorta done that before on stage, so it’s all old hat now, really.”
Daniel Radcliffe talking there. About what, you ask? Possible an Equus movie adaptation? No. That would be for a scene in the first of the two Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows movies. We knew it was getting dark, but now Harry’s getting nekkid? Dear God, won’t somebody please think of the children?!
Writer Justin Marks, the guy who what wrote Unbroken (no, us neither) and the forthcoming Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun Li, comes the script for big screen adaptation of Voltron, the cartoon that pre-dated the similar but less apocalyptic Power Rangers by about 15 years.
Its been described as “a post-apocalyptic tale set in New York City and Mexico which follows five ragtag survivors of an alien attack who band together and end up piloting the five lion-shaped robots that combine and form the massive sword-wielding Voltron that helps battle Earth’s invaders.”
Appearantly LatinoReview have read the script, and announced it as “a fucking masterpiece” and Cinemablend’s opinion doesn’t differ too much; “a well put together, well intentioned, incredibly faithful Voltron script using modern sensibilities.”
We’re sorry, but just how well intentioned to you intend to be when we’re talking about a film involving aliens, lion robots, and a giant samurai that fights the bad invaders with a big sword? That kinda shit might fly in Manga-land, but the is Hollywood baby. Thats not kosher here.
Yes, its fake, but yes, its awesome as shit.
Brian Austin Green might’ve rocked our collective worlds in Beverely Hills 90210, and he might be making something of a “comeback”, if you can call it that, in The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but is that enough for Master Nolan to consider him? According to a recent interview with MTV, he believes so. We can but dream.
Despite James “Cyclops and then the boring guy from Superman Returns” Marsden trying to act all tuff and stuff, this trailer actually made Correct Opinion laugh more times than the entire of Step Brothers.
Take from that what you want.
Because we forgot to add previously, here is the Potter 6 teaser trailer:
As with all the films, its getting darker, to the point that by the time Potter 7 swings round, you may not be able to see the Warner Brothers logo. Also, at the end of the trailer, the word “Novemeber” pops op. Well…..
“Like every other studio, we are still feeling the repercussions of the writers’ strike, which impacted the readiness of scripts for other films—changing the competitive landscape for 2009 and offering new windows of opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of. We agreed the best strategy was to move Half-Blood Prince to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tent pole release for mid-summer.” From the pen of Mister Warner (or one of his PR people, at least).
The real reason, apparently, is because Warners also distributed a little movie called The Dark Knight this year, which made a butt load of money, so they don’t really need any more this year, and have moved it back to July 2009 cos it’ll have little to no competition. The only other film opening on the same day is Will Ferrell’s Land Of The Lost, which Paramount will probably move to a safer date now.
