Colin Farrell Talks About "Ondine" 


My special interview with Colin Farrell about his new film "Ondine" from director Neil Jordan. It's about a man who discovers a woman in his fishing net. Is this woman a mermaid?

In this interview, we talked about:

How he got involved with "Ondine"
Working with Neil Jordan
The setting of the film

Have fun!



Here's more info on "Ondine" from Yahoo:

Syracuse is a simple fisherman who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his trawler's nets. The woman seems to be dead, but then she comes alive before Syracuse's eyes and he thinks he may be seeing things. However, with the help of his ailing, yet irrepressible daughter, Annie, he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman (Ondine) might be a myth come true. Ondine and Syracuse fall passionately in love, but just as we think the fairytale might go on forever, the real world intercedes. Then, after a terrible car crash and the return of a dark and violent figure from Ondine's past, hope eventually prevails and a new beginning is presented to Syracuse, Ondine and Annie.

"Toy Story 3" Movie Review 


The original “Toy Story” changed the art of filmmaking. Released in 1995, the film became the first full-length animated feature created using CG technology. Fifteen years later, the franchise grows up, the characters feel worn-out, but the magic is still intact.


Even “Toy Story 2” made motion picture history in 1999 when it became the first film ever to be entirely created, mastered, and exhibited digitally. I don’t think “Toy Story 3” will make cinematic history anytime soon but it’s a fitting conclusion to the beloved series.

From director Lee Unkrich to producer-writer John Lasseter, virtually the same creative team that worked on the first two “Toy Story” films returns for the third installment. This time, the filmmakers are playing with darker themes such as aging and abandonment. Read More...

Check Out New Trailer for Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere" 
After a four-year absence, writer-director Sofia Coppola returns with the film "Somewhere" from Focus Features. This one stars Stephen Dorff as Johnny Marco, a fading Hollywood actor who is forced to re-examine his life with the surprise visit of his 11-year-old daughter played by Elle Fanning.

"Somewhere" is set to open December 22nd of this year, just in time for the Oscar season. The film seems to have abundant Coppola pathos -- aging man forced to re-examine life ala Bill Murray's character in "Lost in Translation." And the juxtaposition between an older man and a younger woman, this time, it's the father and daughter relationship.

But still, credit goes to Coppola for doing something new and creative sans 3D glasses. Here's the trailer for "Somewhere":

The Incredible Zach Galifianakis to Become a Fish in "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" Remake 


Zach Galifianakis is in talks to star in the remake of "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" according to the Los Angeles Times. It's going to be an update of the 1964 live-action/animated film starring Don Knotts who turns into a talking fish and helps the U.S. Navy to defeat Nazis.

Warner Bros. is behind the remake and has hired "Enchanted" director, Kevin Lima, to helm. I think Galifianakis will be perfect to channel Knotts in the Mr. Limpet role, well, at least he can make this character hip again.

For now, let's take a look at the original 1964 trailer:

"Fathom" Movie Moving One With or Without Megan Fox 


Megan Fox, star of the upcoming comic book adaptation, "Jonah Hex" (opens June 18th), has been heard talking about another comic book property, "Fathom."

It's based on the Aspen Comics series created by the late Michael Turner and is being developed by Fox Atomic. Megan Fox is still signed up to star as Aspen Matthews and she will also produce the film. English actor Matthew Tate will play Chance Calloway and Jordan Mechner is finalizing the script.

Fox confirmed to MTV News that "Fathom" is still in the works and will get made come hell or high water.

"That's going to happen even if I have to step away from it and give it to someone else," she told MTV. "That movie will happen, just because I love it and it needs to happen."


What exactly does this statement mean? Is Fox leaving the "Fathom" production? Not really, on the contrary, the actress is actively participating in "Fathom's" development.

"They're still working on the script and getting that together," she told MTV. "That's in the early fetal pre-production stages."


Oh, and by the way, for those folks wondering if Fox would suck in "Jonah Hex," have no fear, she was actually good in the film.
