Mrs. Doubtfire – The Evil Version

I found a great clip today that I wanted to share with you, which shows what kind of impact  editing, together with the right music, can have to a trailer or movie.

Daniel Baxter, a Staffordshire University student, made this clip for an editing exercise. The goal of the exercise was to alter the genre of an existing movie, by editing it, so that it seemed to be in a completely different genre.

I think that Daniel did an awesome and entertaining work, and if you pretend that you haven’t seen or know the genre of Mrs. Doubtfire; it’s pretty hard to imagine that it’s something else than a thriller, isn’t it?

A Fresh Poster from the Elm Street Revamp

The latest news from Samuel Bayer’s revamp of A Nightmare on Elm Street comes in the form of a titillating poster, featuring Freddy. I think the poster is rather good and I especially like the vicious smile on Freddy’s deformed lips.

Now, the only question that remains, before the premiere on April 30; will Bayer and Jackie Earle Haley manage to top Wes Cravens original?

I don’t think that Haley will let us down, but will Bayer be able to create the same surrealistic and frightful atmosphere that Craven gave us, or will it feel plastic and artificial, as the latest Friday the 13 did?

I really hope that the team behind this chose the Elm Street franchise because they had genuine interest of its core and not just because the title alone.

Anyway, I guess that we’ll be giving some of the answers in the upcoming trailer. However, I will have a hard time staying away from the theaters, so I will certainly end up watching this, regardless. How about you, what’s your feeling regarding this revamp?

Mother’s Day Update

In September last year, I wrote that Saw director Bousman had started filming his remake of Kaufman‘s classic, Mother’s Day and now he has posted some updates about it, on his blog. The biggest news is that the movie will probably not come out on Mother’s Day, as it was planned from the beginning, but … Read more

Ondine an Interesting Fairytale

I find the story behind Colin Ferrell’s upcoming fantasy drama, Ondine, to be surprisingly interesting, much thanks to the trailer, which have a rather addictive score attached to it.

I also like the tagline that reads, “The Truth Is Not What You Know. It’s What You Believe”.
Of course, the presently high rating over at IMDB (8.0) also helped to ensnare my attention, a bit.

The story revolves around the fisherman Syraceuse (Ferrell) who one day finds a beautiful woman, caught in his net. Speculation about her origins begins to rise as she transforms and touches the lives of Syraceuse and the people in the small fisher town.

Clash of the Titans Featurette

An interesting featurette for, Clash of the Titans, has emerged on the net. This clip goes into a little more detail about the plot, characters and creatures behind.

Among other things, we hear Sam Worthington Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson talk about their characters, Perseus, Zeus and Hades and which part they play in this magnificent story.

We also get a short glimpse of Medusa in her cave, as well as a closer look of The Kraken, which is huge in this movie, I can tell you.
Go have a look at this featurette, as I think it provides a tasty morsel, of what we can expect on April 2, when this one will clash into our cinemas.
