Ghost in the Shell is based on a Japanese manga by Masamune Shirow and a classic anime by Mamoru Oshii – both of which deal with the questions of what constitutes identity and whether humanity remains when the line between human and machine disappears.
Rupert Sanders’ live-action Ghost in the Shell touches on these ideas more I expected it would and is a cracking good science fiction-action movie as well.
Can a talented newcomer teach a seasoned chef new gastronomic tricks? Can two wildly different cultures learn from each other? These are two of the questions posed by DreamWorks Pictures’ The Hundred-Foot Journey.
A new featurette features producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey discussing these ideas accompanied by new footage from the film. Check it out following the jump. The Hundred-Foot Journey reserves theater space beginning August 8th.
DreamWorks’ The Hundred-Foot Journey is the story of how an Indian family’s decision to open an Indian restaurant across the road from a Michelin-starred classical French restaurant affects the family’s son, the French restaurant’s proprietress, the family and the region. It’s a story about how cultures may initially clash, but a bit of insight, open-mindedness and just the right amount of spice – embodied in the Indian family’s son – can bring them together.
The Hundred-Foot Journey stars Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal and Charlotte Le Bon, and opens on August 8th. Check out the luscious trailer after the jump.
There’s not a lot you really need to know about Need For Speed except that what little CGI there might be in the movie, none of it is in the stuntwork. The racing sequences are outstanding – and practical (which is where the ‘old school’ comes in). Oh, and there’s actually a plot and a lot of good actors doing good work.
We’ve already taken a few peeks behind the scenes of Need For Speed, so now it’s time to check out the guys in the cars. Follow the jump for another eye-opening behind the scenes video as we meet the Marshall’s Motors’ Crew in the latest on the Road to Need for Speed.
Need For Speed zips into theaters March 14th, 2014.
Trailers and TV spots aren’t movies, but everything I’ve seen so far, including this lovely 30-second Super Bowl spot, suggests that we just might have a video game adaptation that doesn’t suck. Also, Aaron Paul
The illusion of characters driving in an action movie is greatly enhanced when they can do all or at least some of their own driving. In the case of Need For Speed, we get a chance to follow Dominic Cooper through his pre-shoot day at action driving school. If this acting thing doesn’t work out for him…
Check out the video after the jump. Need For Speed rolls into theaters on March 14th.
When Ned For Speed premieres on March 14th, there will be racing and chasing – at great speeds. How do they get those cool shots? Camera cars, of course. But how do they get camera cars that will operate at those speeds? Check out the Camera Cars video, after the jump, to get a look behind the scenes.
Since, for budgetary reasons it would make no sense to be damaging Bugattis, Keonigseggs or other expensive cars, the team behind the cars for Need For Speed built replicas of these supercars that would still give them the performance requirements of a movie that incorporates ‘speed’ into its title. Check out a new video that gives a glimpse into the world of making faux supercars – and a feature on those cars – after the jump.
The movie adaptation of the videogame series Need For Speed, starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, has a new trailer – an appropriately frenetic trailer. Check it out – along with synopsis, director, cast and social media links – after the jump.
