Sony Moves "Robocop," "Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers" 

Sony Pictures is playing musical chairs! The studio has changed its release dates for the following films (thanks to our friends at Collider via Box-Office Mojo):

"RoboCop" -- moved from August 9, 2013 to February 7, 2014

In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.

"Elysium" -- moved from March 1, 2013 to August 9, 2013

In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

"Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers" -- moved from Feb. 7, 2014 to Sept. 7, 2013

Live Corp has been charged with cleaning up the island after Flint’s contraption that turned water into food led to a mess of huge pancakes, pizza slices and, of course, meatballs garnishing the pulverized town in the original film. But in the sequel, the machine is still sputtering away somewhere — only now it’s pumping out living pickles, a walking, gibberish-talking strawberry named Barry, and creatures like the giant, french-fry-legged bacon cheesespider, which lords over the abandon town like a massive cholesterol-spiking tarantula.

Ben Affleck Talks About “Argo” 

Okay, I admit, I love “Argo,” and let me tell you, it’s so easy to interview stars when you love the movie. Yet, confession time, meeting Ben Affleck, the star/director of the film, made me kind of nervous. And I haven’t been that nervous meeting a celebrity and I’ve been doing this for years! Probably because, I respect Mr. Affleck, and I admire his skills as a director.

In “Argo,” Affleck also stars as Tony Mendez, the CIA’s best exfiltration specialist. He’s assigned to free the six Americans hiding in the home of Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. His plan? To make a fake movie. But the mission is all real.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** He’s 3 for 3 in film directing (“Gone Baby Gone,” “The Town,” “Argo”)
*** His Middle East studies in college – so “Argo” is like his thesis
*** What was his intent in making “Argo?”
*** How did he separate fact from fiction in making a dramatic film grounded in reality like “Argo”
*** How did he inspire himself and crew in making “Argo?”
*** The hair!

Have fun!

Bryan Cranston Interview for “Argo” 

Bryan Cranston stars as assistant deputy director of the CIA, Jack O’Donnell, in “Argo.” He’s the boss of Ben Affleck’s character, Tony Mendez. It’s always a pleasure to talk to the fantastic Mr. Cranston, as he is from my neck of the woods, the Coachella Valley. Plus, he’s just plain brilliant and down-to-earth even after getting his career-defining gig in “Breaking Bad.”

In this interview, we talked about:

*** “Argo’s” levity – for a political drama it’s funny
*** What got him interested in making “Argo”
*** Working with Affleck both as an actor and director
*** How did Affleck inspire him
*** How did he find the likeability aspect of his character?
*** Of course, our favorite topic, Palm Desert

Have fun!
