As we are entering June, the summer films are going to be coming out thick and fast over the next couple of months. Let’s have a look and see what we have to look forward to! As with most summer films, a lot seem to be based around comic books. We have another installment from X-Men (hopefully doing better than Wolverine) and the much anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger, which is the last film in the build up to ‘The Avengers’ which is due out next year. A couple of comedies thrown in. But let’s face it, this summer is about the final Harry Potter film, part 2 of the Deathly Hallows. The end of the franchise after 10 years since it all began.
It doesn’t seem that many out and out romantic comedies are going for a summer release (unless of course I have missed them). Definitely more for the action and adventure angle this summer!
What films are you looking forward to most this summer?
Jack Black and Will Ferrell inform us of the lyrics that go with the “music” the winners do not want to hear!
Now to the second part of the countdown . . . films 40-31 . . .
I think Jack Black would fit in so well in Ghostbusters !!!
Jack Black is desperate to star in the new Ghostbusters sequel and lobbied original star Harold Ramis when the pair worked together on new movie Year One.
After directing Black in the neanderthal comedy, Ramis is preparing to reprise his role as Dr. Egon Spengler in the third Ghostbusters film.
The veteran is also on the shortlist to direct the sequel, and Black admits he used his time with Ramis to campaign for the chance to hunt ghouls with him.
Black tells Moviefone, “Could I see myself in it? Yeah, I can bust some ghosts! I ain’t (sic) afraid of no ghosts! Buster.”
Ghostbusters III will star the original line-up of Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, as well as a new batch of younger spook chasers.
Oooo I think that sounds like it would be really cool
Bosses at Los Angeles movie landmark Universal Studios are to rebuild the King Kong tourist attraction that was destroyed in a 2008 fire which briefly closed the themepark.
The blaze claimed a handful of sets familiar to backlot tour visitors, but the New York street scene, housed in a hangar, was the most famous victim of the fire, which was sparked by company employees using blowtorches to apply roof shingles.
The studio tour was briefly closed but has since been reconfigured to avoid the worst hit fire damaged areas.
And now Universal bosses plan to rebuild the King Kong set ready for a grand re-opening next summer, as part of a digitally upgraded backlot tour.
Universal Studios publicist Audrey Eig says, “King Kong has been an integral part of the studio tour for years. We are happy to be able to bring him back. No one can destroy the great ape.”
The set originally opened in 1986 and has become one of the themepark’s most famous attractions. The new-look King Kong set will be based on that of the 2005 film, which starred Jack Black and Naomi Watts.
So, I found the whole show fantastic and very well put together. Yes, it was probably a little less formal than previous years but maybe that is a good thing at this point in time. My favorite new thing was the whole 5 previous winners of the acting awards for each category introducing and presenting the nominees then the winner of this years award. I hope this is an idea that will follow on for many years to come.
