The schedule for July 14 is up!
2:30-5:00 Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Preview Their Upcoming Lineups—
Legendary Pictures: Pacific Rim-From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim. When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse. Pacific Rim also stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day.
Warner Bros. Pictures: Man Of Steel
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey-From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). Jackson returns to Middle-earth in an adventure that begins 60 years before the events depicted in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The first of two films adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien’s enduringly popular masterpiece, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey follows titular Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), who-along with the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and a band of 13 Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage)-is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. The film’s ensemble cast includes Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lily, and Andy Serkis as Gollum.
It makes me nervous that has no panelists announced for Man of Steel.
Man of Steel panel to be present on Saturday, July 14th at SDCC.
[Variety] – Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures and Marvel Studios are readying a marathon of presentations for tentpoles that include “Man of Steel,” “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “Pacific Rim,” and “Iron Man 3,” that will all take place July 14 in the San Diego Convention Center’s Hall H — the facility’s largest presentation room that seats 6,000.
The planned panels will run at least four hours, with Marvel wrapping up the day, ending Hollywood’s film presentations as it’s done in the past with “Iron Man 2″ and “The Avengers.” The hour-long Marvel panel will start at 6 p.m.
Marvel-owner Disney will host its own hour-long Hall H panel on July 12 beginning at 2:05 p.m, with the studio focusing on “Frankenweenie,” “Oz: The Great and Powerful” and Walt Disney Animation’s “Wreck-It Ralph.”
No word yet if Amy will attend it, since she will be doing rehearsals to “Into the Woods” but let’s hope she can find some time.
Beloved writer and director Nora Ephron died yesterday of leukemia. She was 71.
Nora directed Amy in 2009 Julie & Julia, but she has an extensive list of amazing titles, mostly romantic comedies, as writer of When Harry Met Sally…, and filmmaker of Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail, just to name a few.
That’s a huge loss. RIP, Nora.
A brief clip/teaser arrived during Cannes, on the same day that footage from the film was screened on the Croisette, and now, unannounced in the middle of the night, a second has cropped up on YouTube.
This second teaser pulls back a bit; where the first focused completely on Joaquin Phoenix, this new one gives us glimpses (and the voices of) Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lancaser Dodd and Amy Adams as Mary Sue Dodd.And just like the very first teaser, this one is unique as well.
The Master opens October 12th.
Over 50 HQ pictures of Amy yesterday on set for “Lullaby” has been added. Check it:
Filming for “Lullaby” has started today and we have the first pictures of Amy on set, with her co-star Garrett Hedlund. Check it:
Edit: Dailymail has a different ones that won’t be posted here but you can, at least, see them!
According to various sources, Lullaby, which is described as “a drama about a broken family reunited for one last moment as they say goodbye to their dying father, husband and mentor”, will begin filming in New York City before the end of the month.
Lullaby stars Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, and Jennifer Hudson. From what we’ve heard, it is currently in pre-production on Roosevelt Island.
I did some photo shoot replacing since finally I was able to get three sets of photo shoots from 2008 untagged. That creepy agency tags was bugging me for a while, and now we’re good.
I finally got in hands the regular DVD copy of “The Muppets” and did some screen captures of the Bloopers Reel that’s available on it.
Amy’s upcoming projects received a few (great) additions during the week.
Olivia Wilde joined the upcoming untitled Spike Jonze project, which has already Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix, Samantha Morton and Rooney Mara on board (What a cast!).The film is about a guy who falls in love with the voice of a computer, similar to the Siri feature on the new iPhone. SPWA has acquired all media for Latin America, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, South Africa, Australia/New Zealand and Pan-Asia Pay TV.
And Denis O’Hare will star as The Baker in the upcoming Shakespeare in the Park production Into the Woods. The Public Theater production, directed by Timothy Sheader, will run from July 23 to August 25 at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park.
