Zemeckis' Yellow Submarine is No More

Just read on /Film that Robert Zemeckis's retelling of Yellow Submarine is no more. Apparently due to the failure and utterly tanked filmed Mars Needs Moms Disney has decided to not continue with the project because of it's use of intensive motion capture. For something that might actually be really awesome have the door closed on it because of some fluff like Mars Needs Moms is sad indeed. This needs to change. Hopefully Zemeckis finds another studio to bring it out and that Disney lack of involvement doesn't scare people away.

Happy moviegoing folks!

Keep an Eye Out For: Mildred Pierce (2011) HBO Mini Series

Ya. You heard me correctly. In my nostalgia for writing papers and being in University level classes I looked at a great post about 1949's classic noir Mildred Peirce. Now I hear Kate Winslet stars as Mildred Peirce in a five part mini series for HBO directed by none other than Todd Haynes. Say whaaa? I heard rumors about this, I didn't know it was in the works, done and ready to air. In case you care. Which you should. It will air, March 27th 9PM on HBO. Check it out! Saw the post in an awesome blog called, Cinema Style. Check out the post here! PS. Even Rachel Wood will play Mildred's treacherous daughter and Guy Pearce her treacherous lover. So excited!

What in god's name!? Remake of the 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves in the works???

Ya you read that correctly. What the fuck?! I'm sorry but I'm not gonna lie I almost threw up a little when I first read this. /Film reported, saying, "With Keanu Reeves set to star in Carl Erik Rinsch's 47 Ronin, by my math, still leaves about 46 Ronin to be cast." You've got to be kidding me? I will speak no further about the subject matter after this. With the amount of money spent on this kind of bullshit there has got to be a better use for it, this just seems plain wasteful. All that poor film or digital storage (probably going to use some crap Beta camera). I am shocked to know someone even had the gull trying to pitch this BULL. Someone please smack these people out when they come into your office with this shit. Why isn't anyone doing anything about this? Check out the /Film report here.

Happy moviegoing folks!
