I think this is really good news, as it was a good way to end it . . . he went home !!!
Director Steven Spielberg has ruled out plans to make a sequel to kids’ movie classic E.T., insisting it’s “a closed story”.
The filmmaker was reported to be in talks with the movie’s star Drew Barrymore, who featured when she was just six years old, to reunite her character Gertie with her extraterrestrial friend in a new installment of the picture, 27 years after the original.
But Spielberg has already dismissed the notion, telling Empire magazine: “I’m never going to make E.T. II – E.T. is a closed story.
“It had a beginning, middle and a definite ending, and we had nowhere to take it except to go home with him. Nor did I want to bring him back to Earth for a second time.”
Awww this really is just too cute !!! I heart Jules so much, and love that she tries to keep her kids life normal. Also that they watch Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music !!! Love it
Julia Roberts is determined to keep her acting career secret from her children for as long as possible – she doesn’t want to ruin the magic of movies for them.
The Hollywood star is mother to three kids with husband Danny Moder – twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, four, and Henry, two – and deliberately refuses tell them she is an actress.
She tells British magazine New, “They don’t know what I do – yet. I kind of like it that way. I don’t know what they’re going to ask me when they do realise and I don’t know what I’m going to tell them, because I want movies to stay special for them for as long as possible.”
And the star admits she has already lied to Hazel about the secrets behind the film-making business.
She adds, “My daughter said to me the other day that Maria in The Sound Of Music sounded a lot like Mary Poppins. I said it’s because they’re both English! I didn’t want to say, ‘Well, it’s because Mary Poppins is really Julie Andrews, who’s an actress,’ because that would burst that perfect bubble. So I prefer not to deal with it right now.”
WOW I wonder if this is actually true !!! Cant imagine how his soon to be ex-wife must feel about it !?!?!
Mel Gibson’s girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva is pregnant with the couple’s first child, according to internet reports.
The actor’s wife Robyn filed for divorce last month after 28 years of marriage amid rumours the actor had been dating 39-year-old Grigorieva.
The Lethal Weapon star made their romance public weeks later (begs27Apr09), by taking his lover to a movie premiere in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ.com, Gibson has already told his estranged wife and their children Grigorieva is in her second trimester of pregnancy.
The former couple share one daughter and six sons.
As I am having a bit of a sort out and change around today I have been trying to think of different things I could post about in the blog. A lot more top 10 lists will be coming up when I think of some good top 10 titles.
I am also going to start doing profile’s on different actors and name my favorite movie by them, and which movies I have seen them in and things like that. So that will lead to a lot more posts with my opinions in them.
Any suggestions would be welcomed, thanks.
I havent posted a movie picture of the day for quite a while now. So today’s picture is from Mary Poppins, this must make everyone smile.
I am a huge fan of musicals. I love going to see shows at the theatre and have seen shows on the West End and Broadway. So therefore I absoloutly adore movie versions of musicals. I have decided to do a countdown of my current top 10 movie musicals. I have actually found this list very hard to complete, as just having a top 10 was very difficult for me. But I managed to get it sorted in the end, haha. I kept remembering about different movies and probably will realise later that I have missed a favorite out. But never mind, I could always re-do this list in a few months.
I was growing bored of the other layout I had on this blog. It had been that way since Feb . . . so all of 3 months and it wasnt really too good any more. So I have now changed to a different layout and I think it looks much better now. Especially that more pages fit across the top, so it gives me more room to adapt. I also really like the way the date is on the side of the posts.
Any views on the new layout?
Havent had any Mickey news for a while, hearing about him in a new movie is always nice
Mickey Rourke is to star in a remake of the 1986 British gangster movie Mona Lisa.
The Wrestler star will portray an ex-con working as a chauffeur for a high-class escort, rumoured to be played by Casino Royal actress Eva Green.
The original movie’s line-up included Bob Hoskins and Michael Caine, and saw Hoskins go on to win the 1987 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama.
No suprise really !!!
Tom Hanks is back at the top of the U.S. box office after claiming the number one spot with Angels & Demons.
The new thriller shot to the top of the new film countdown with an opening weekend take of $48 million (£32 million).
The film only just pipped Star Trek to the top spot – the sci-fi blockbuster took in $43 million (£28.6 million) during its second weekend on release, but tumbled from last week’s number one.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past and Obsessed round out the new top five.
I couldnt really see how a sequel would have worked when it was based on a true story.
Dame Helen Mirren’s co-star in Calendar Girls has laughed off reports of a sequel to the hit film – insisting the movie has produced enough spin-offs already.
Penelope Wilton starred alongside Mirren in the surprise 2003 smash, which chronicled the real-life story of a group of Women’s Institute members who produced a nude calendar to raise money for charity.
The movie grossed a massive $93 million (£62 million) worldwide and was this year turned into a hit West End show, while an anniversary calendar has just hit the U.K. shelves – but Wilton is adamant there won’t be another film.
She says, “I know a new tenth anniversary calendar has just come out, and there is a stage show as well, but I don’t believe there should be a new film. The Calendar Girls brand has gone as far as it can go.”
