So the Tekken movie gets a director

tekken jin kazamaI'm getting more and more skeptical about the upcoming Tekken movie. Why? Because Dwight Little is going to direct it.

Dwight Little is going to be the DIRECTOR for the TEKKEN MOVIE!

So what's the big deal? Nothing really, especially if you liked Little's other movies like Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, Murder at 1600, Rapid Fire and Marked for Death.

What will Tekken's plot be?

According to Little:

"The film plays out as a science fiction story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people. It's a gladiator story, but the videogame has a complicated enough storyline that it provides the template for a martial arts spectacular."

Oh puh-leeeeze.

Tekken is one of the many video game-based movies that are set to come out in the following years. For a list of those movies, click here.

Atonement trailer

I'm honestly quite intrigued with the movie since it has garnered such positive reviews. Has anyone watched this yet? Anyone going to watch Atonement?

A-Team on the big screen?

a-teamJohn Singleton, director of Boyz N the Hood, is said to be preparing to create a remake of the 1980s TV hit series, the A-Team. Twentieth Century Fox is in the process of "talking" but no deals have been made yet.

As for the one who's playing Baracas (Mr. T), Ice Cube, who starred in Singleton's movie, is said to be perfect for the part. (I'm not too sure how they define "perfect", so don't ask.)

And for the plot, some Iraqi are wanted by the US government for crimes that they did not commit. The team tries to help them while running from the government themselves. Add in some oil tycoons and lasers, you have a movie I'm not too sure I'll watch.


The Hobbit is coming!

the hobbit bilbo bagginsGood news, LOTR and Tolkien fans!

LOTR director, Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema has finally settled their dispute over the profits of the fantasy trilogy. Jackson has agreed to direct two movies based on Tolkien's The Hobbit - the prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Both films are to be shot simultaneously, like with the Lord of the Rings, and the principal photography is said to take place on 2009. This leaves 2010 and 2011 as release dates for The Hobbit and its sequel respectively.

First Six Minutes of The Dark Knight!

Watch the first six minutes of The Dark Knight. This is a bank robbery scene where masked robbers led by the Joker (Heath Ledger) can be seen doing their thing.

The Killing of John Lennon trailer

This is a movie that revolves on John Lennon's killer, Mark Champman. I guess they're dramatizing everything that happens from the time he plans to kill the ex-Beatle until the actual pulling of the trigger that ended the rock superstar's life. Maybe they added a few "after the killing" story about Champman - kinda like the epilogue or something.

They should make a movie that's about John Lennon himself. Like what they did with Bob Dylan.

Horton Hears a Who trailer

This is for the kiddies and the kids-at-heart!

Horton Hears a Who is a CGI movie based on one of Dr. Seuss' books of the same title. It's about an elephant named Horton who gets everyone around him mad as he tries to protect small "creatures" that inhabits a speck of dust.

Horton is voiced by Jim Carrey and the Whos are all voiced by Steve Carell. The movie will be released on March 14, 2008.


Shine a Light trailer

Rolling Stones fans! I think all you guys are excited to see this documentary-movie that features footages of the band's recent concert that was captured by award-winning director, Martin Scorcese. Well at the very least, I know I'm excited.

Shine a Light focuses on the 2006 concert of the Rolling Stones in the Beacon Theater, New York, where the band sang some unrecorded songs that were heard for the first time in their whole career. With a group of highly-skilled cinematographers from different critically-acclaimed films, they shot the documentary in a span of two-days - every angle capturing the intensity and passion of the Rolling Stones. Oh the executive producers are the band members themselves.

Shine a Light will be released on April 4, 2008.

Qwerty is a Filipino indie movie made by Paolo Dy. It's a really chilling and thought-provoking short film. It runs around 5 minutes - pretty short but it's amazing how everything can fit in that short amount of time. The movie was introduced to me by a friend and was a bit reluctant to watch it at first but he kinda persuaded me to do so. And man...I didn't regret it one bit.

I don't really want to delve onto the details of the movie because I think that it'll just spoil everything for the viewer. Why don't you just watch it, right? It's just 5 minutes and I'm positive that you won't regret it at all!

Spiderwick Chronicles -- A new children's movie

I haven't really read the books but Spiderwick Chronicles have had nice reviews about it. From what I've gathered, Spiderwick Chronicles is one of those fantasy children stories - which was probably released after the Harry Potter hype. I mean, I've only seen the books some time after several Harry Potter books have been out and became popular.

So what is Spiderwick Chronicles about?

Jared Grace moved from New York with his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mother to some secluded old house owned by their great-great-uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Strange things start to happen as soon as they move in, like things disappearing or accidents suddenly happening, and they all blame Jared for everything. The three children decide to investigate these strange occurrences that is happening every day and they find out about the secret of the Spiderwick house and the different creatures that live there.

I think that this might be a better movie than
A Series of Unfortunate Events. The story seems to target children more with it's fantastic plot and all. It might be a good watch, so if you have kids, or is a kid-at-heart, try to catch the Spiderwick Chronicles on February 15, 2008.

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian trailer

I liked the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe movie, so I think I'll definitely watch Prince Caspian when it comes out. The story itself is nice, as the siblings once again goes back to Narnia, this time helping a prince in distress.

The movie is set to be released on May 16, 2008 in the US.

The Dark Knight trailer

I've only read half of the graphic novel because I got bored. I'm not really sure if I want to watch Batman: The Dark Knight when it comes out - never really was a fan of Batman. Well, it does look nice though, so I still have to see whether I'd like to watch it or not. Anyway, here's the trailer:

10,000 B.C. trailer

10,000 B.C. -- A young hunter is out leading an army across the wild and untamed desert where he has to battle mammoths and saber tooth tigers to save his tribe's princess from an evil warlord.

Well, that's practically the gist of the whole movie but it sounds exciting, doesn't it? I mean, war movies these days are all going further and further into time. Makes me wonder when the next time frame will be.

I'm so looking forward to this movie. It's a fantastic one since there's a lot of inconsistencies within the story and history itself - so it's interesting to see something like 10,000 B.C. Watch the trailer to see if this interests you too:

So has anyone seen Mirrormask yet? It's the movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel. The story is wonderfully fantastic. I mean, it is Neil Gaiman we're talking about here. If you haven't really seen the movie, or read the book for that matter, Mirrormask is kind of like an Alice in Wonderland story.

Helena comes from a family of circus entertainers but sometimes she wishes to be part of the
real world. She then blames herself after a big fight with her parents and her mother suddenly getting sick. On the night before her mother gets operated on, Helena falls asleep and dreams that she is in another world full of grotesque creatures and has two queens: the white and the black queen. As Helena discovers that the white queen is sick and the only thing that can save her is an instrument called the Mirrormask, Helena does everything in her power to find the mask. Deeper into her dream, Helena starts to wonder if the world she's living in is becoming more and more real the longer she stays.

I like the movie because it realistically depicts the world Neil Gaiman created. The story itself is simple but deep. I suggest that you watch it because it really brings the book to life. If you've never heard of the movie, now's the best time to check it out:
