Chicago winning Best Picture in 2003 at the Oscars is often regarded as a mistake due to the other films nominated that year. I fell in love with it but then again I am just a little bit of musical geek. So obviously I still love it and have it as one of my all time favorite films. The academy showed its supposed love for musicals that year but Oliver! was the previous Best Picture winner for a musical so it had been a very long time between a musical winning the best picture award. I think it’s quite scary that it is now 10 years on and loved how the cast we involved in the 2013 ceremony. Especially the All That Jazz performance from Catherine Zeta Jones that totally made the whole show for me. It’s a great song one of the best openings to a musical and it also helped show that she still has it after more than 10 years!
Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) returns for the fourth time in this journey to strange tides in search for the fountain of youth. But he is not the only one who is searching for it.
While I was writing my review for Nine (and even watching it) I was trying not to compare it to Chicago. Mainly because I love Chicago and it is one of my favorite films ever, so to compare another musical directed by Rob Marshall on one viewing would not be very fair. So I have decided to take a deeper look into both movies and not really say which one is better, but to show comparisons.
Film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) struggles to keep his professional and private life separate as he must keep the women in his life all happy . . . and apart, whilst trying to make a new movie.
After waiting so long for even one poster for Nine, yet another has been released! Which I think is just great, the world premiere for Nine is in London next week on the 3rd of Decemeber. So it will be interesting to see which of the actors/actresses attend the premiere.
Three posters have now been released for “Nine”. This really builds up the suspense of wanting to see this movie even more. I like all three of them, as they are all different, with different pictures of the actors on them.
Just come across the exclusive clip of Kate Hudson singing “Cinema Italiano” from “Nine” which is a movie I am so much looking forward to. So check out the video of Kate singing
I have just read that the release date for Nine has been pushed back from November to December. So delayed for about a month. I have to admit that I am so disappointed as this really is a film I have been looking forward to since it was announced. I think if you have read my blog before you will know that I am a big fan of musicals. So a new movie version of a musical from the director who brought one of my favorite films Chicago made me extremely excited. I still think it will be totally worth the wait, but still such a let down that we have to wait an extra month for it. Hopefully in that time though, the poster will be released, along with another trailer and to top it all off the soundtrack. I really want to listen to the soundtrack before seeing the film, as I like being knowing the songs before seeing a musical.
As I am very excited for this movie to come out (especially after the trailer being on before Fame last week). I decided to post the pictures which have been released as stills of the movie. From the trailer and the pictures below, I am really holding high hopes of loving this movie. Just for the facts that it is a musical and it is directed by Rob Marshall, who directed one of my favorite films in Chicago.
I think this film is just fantastic, with all of the women in the photo. Such fantastic talent in this picture.
Rob Marshall has been announced as the new director of the 4th POTC film. This seems to have started rumours that Johnny Depp will drop out of the project and therefore to Captain Jack Sparrow. I do not know how true that is, but will POTC be able to work without Captain Jack? I really do not think it could.
Whats everyone else’s view?
As you may already know, I love musicals and “Chicago” is one of my favorite films. So when I found out that Rob Marshall was bringing another musical to the big stage I have been every excited about it. Even more so after watching this trailer as it looks fantastic, and really does have a great cast made up of Oscar Winners. This film has to be part of the Oscar Nominations next year.
