A Fish Called Wanda Available on Blu-ray October 3rd from Arrow Video

“The funniest movie I have seen in a long time” – Roger Ebert

A Fish Called Wanda will be available on Blu-ray October 3rd from Arrow Video

In 1988, John Cleese, former Python and the mastermind behind Fawlty Towers, teamed up with the veteran Ealing Comedy director Charles Crichton (The Lavender Hill Mob) to produce another classic of British comedy.

Cleese plays Archie Leach, a weak-willed barrister who finds himself embroiled with a quartet of ill-matched jewel thieves – two American con artists played by Jamie Lee Curtis and Kevin Kline, Michael Palin’s animal-loving hitman and London gangster Tom Georgeson – when Georgeson is arrested. Only he and Palin know the whereabouts of the diamonds, prompting plenty of farce and in-fighting as well as some embarrassing nudity and the unfortunate demise of some innocent pooches…

Nominated for three Academy Awards and winning one for Kline’s outstanding supporting turn as the psychopathic Otto,

Awards Season Continues With Visual Effects, Sound Mixing And Makeup Nominations

Today was a busy day for some of the smaller guilds with the Visual Effects Society, the Cinema Audio Society, and the Makeup and Hairstylists Guilds all announcing their nominations for 2013.

First, we have the Ves, whose main category to look at is “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture,” where we find Gravity and four other nominees that are just going to have to be happy with the fact that they got nominated. This is perhaps the easiest category to call in the entirety of awards season, and I don’t mean just here, but for the Oscar as well (Last year’s winner, Life of Pi, easily took this category before going on to claim the Oscar). It’s true that films like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Star Trek Into Darkness had outstanding effects as well, but nothing even came close to the amazing,

Was Oscar Horrors Your "Frieeeeeeend"?

Happy Halloween !

Here Lies... bits and pieces of thieves and murderers all stitched together to form the Robert DeNiro version of Frankenstein's Monster. 

Yes, we close this year's season of "Oscar Horrors" by celebrating the gruesome Oscar-nominated makeup in...(deep breath)... Columbia Tri-Star Picture's Kenneth Branagh's Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994) . So many possessives! And the film, if I remember it correctly, is possessed. Kenneth Branagh has never been a wallflower as a director and his version of Frankenstein has the exuberant gonzo abandon (i.e. shameless confidence) that also characterized his far more artistically successful reincarnation noir Dead Again (1991).

The makeup designs by Daniel ParkerPaul Engelen and Carol Hemming won Oscar's attention but the team lost to a black and white celebration of a more infamous gonzo director, Ed Wood

Now. You might be asking "why, Nathaniel, are we looking at shirtless (briefly) buff Kenneth Branagh and his

Official plot details, cast and new title unveiled for Clash of the Titans sequel

Those of you who saw The Graham Norton Show on March 11 will recall Liam Neeson arriving late after dashing from Shepperton Studios where he was filming for the Clash of the Titans sequel.

So it's not exactly a surprise that Warner Bros now tells us that production on the project is 'under way.'

An official announcement from Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures does give us some new information though, revealing the full cast and story outline. Notably, the movie no longer appears to be called Wrath of the Titans, with the wording Clash of the Titans 2 instead used on the press statement.

Clash of the Titans 2 is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) and features returning stars Sam Worthington as Perseus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades and Liam Neeson as Zeus. Danny Huston also reprises his role as Poseidon, who was seen only briefly in the first film.

Bill Nighy & Danny Huston Join Clash Of The Titans 2

If you enjoyed Clash of the Titans, the remake not the original, then Jonathan Liebesman’s sequel – Clash of the Titans 2 – is now officially under way and being filmed. James Franco and Javier Bardem may not have joined the cast as originally touted but British thesp Bill Nighy as along with Danny Huston definitely have. We’re not sure why Wrath of the Titans has been replaced with the generic Clash 2, but it’s rubbish anyway.

Below is the full press release plus a synopsis and you might as well know it’s another post-conversion 3D job. Boo sucks to that!

Production On “Clash Of The Titans 2″ Underway For Warner Bros. Pictures And Legendary Pictures

Clash Of The Titans 2 Has Started Shooting

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures has recently announced that production has officially started for for Clash of the Titans 2. Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson are all back to reprise their roles. We reported earlier that the sequel to Clash of the Titans would be Wrath of the Titans, but that new title is no where to be seen in this press release, so maybe they haven't settled on an official name yet.

I wish I could be more excited about this sequel, but the first film was so bad I honestly have no desire to watch this one. What do you think?

Here's the full synopsis for the film:

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius.

Clash of the Titans 2: Warner Bros. Announces Start of Production

Just last week, we told you about Warner Bros. Pictures and their apparent fear of putting their Gods in the forthcoming sequel to Clash of the Titans up against Lionsgate’s big-screen adaptation of The Hunger Games and moving the release date for Wrath of the Titans, directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Odysseus) from March 23rd to March 30th, 2012.

Now, we have the official press release announcing the start of principal photography, and something interesting I noticed is the fact that the press release is still calling it Clash of the Titans 2, rather than the Wrath of the Titans, which was confirmed as the title by actor Liam Neeson back in December. Has the studio changed their mind on the title, or do they still think it’s a secret?

Check out the press release below for all the details.

Returning to star in the film are Sam Worthington (“Avatar”) as Perseus, and Academy Award® nominees Ralph Fiennes (“The English Patient,” the “Harry Potter” films) as Hades and Liam Neeson (“Schindler’s List,” “Unknown”) as Zeus.

Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon.

Clash of the Titans 2 ‘officially’ starts shooting

Warner Brothers officially made the announcement late yesterday that shooting has commenced on the sequel to last year’s swords, sandals and mythical Gods epic Clash Of The Titans. The film I believe has been shooting out in Pinewood for a couple of weeks, but the news from the following release is that not only does the film go on to shoot in Surrey and Wales, but also heads to the Canary Islands and Tenerife, a place that film fans may recall where parts of the original Planet Of The Apes shot decades ago. We expect that the new ‘Clash’ will be using the barron landscapes of Mount Teide on the island.

Here’s the release:
