The Lovely Bones

DreamWorks just released the first poster for Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. We posted the trailer way back in August, but this one is aiming squarely for award season, and as with most of Jackson’s work, it is visually stunning. The film also features Saoirse Ronan, who at 15 already has an Oscar-nomination for her work in Atonement, and the early buzz is she may be a contender for this as well. The Lovely Bones is due out December 11th, and I’m expecting big things. Poster (and a few stills) courtesy of Yahoo after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Photo Dump: The Other Guys

29 09 2009

Set pictures have leaked from Adam McKay’s (Anchorman, Eastbound & Down) upcoming comedy The Other Guys shooting in New York. There has been alot of buzz that these may be not-yet-approved studio stills from the blog Accidental Sexiness, and they look great. While you see Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and Rob Riggle, and Damon Wayans Jr., who is apparently replacing the rumored Craig Robinson (sadly) several cast members have been added in the last few weeks including Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Steve Coogan, as well as Eva Mendes and Michael Keaton (where has he been lately?).

The premise of the film as McKay explains is, “Basically the idea is that you have your star cops of New York City, picture like a Bruce Willis and Mel Gibson-type pair. They’re the guys who get all the car chases, all the girls. But this is the story of the guys in the desk next to them, the other guys.… The premise is you have the stud cops in New York City, and the other cops are the wannabes who want to be the stud cops, So Ferrell and Wahlberg have another pair of cops who are competing with them to be the stars.”

Photos after the break. And you have to love Wahlberg in the “Bayside Pride” shirt… beat Valley! Read the rest of this entry »

Trailer: The Lovely Bones

5 08 2009

The first trailer for Peter Jackson’s adapation of “The Lovely Bones” from Alice Sebold is out courtesy of Dreamworks. This is one of those books that people keep recommending to me but I’ve never got around to reading, but I can say the trailer looks fantastic. It has a promising cast including Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Surandon, Stanley Tucci and Michael Imperioli with the screenwriting coming from frequent Jackson contributors Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens.
