McFarland, USA – Running into the Heart of America!

McFARLAND

Yes, it’s a sports movie. And yes, there’s a ‘Big Race.’ But MacFarland USA is not just another sports movie. It’s a story of families – the ones we’re born into; the ones we build around us in our communities, and the ones that expand beyond even that.

The nearly three hour presentation touched on a bit of everything. What was even more surprising was how meaty it was. Maybe it was because Disney knew they were presenting before an audience of rabid Disney fanatics or I got caught up in the fan enthusiasm, whatever the case they pulled out the stops with a host of surprise celebrity guests and a ton of never before seen footage to accompany their announcements. We already gave you the 411 on what Marvel Studios has in store for us. Now let’s take a look at the rest of Disney Pictures upcoming slate.

potc4_3

It seems there’s definitely some swash left in the buckle for the Pirates of the Caribbean series. On Stranger Tides is easily the best sequel in the series for a number of reasons.

Movie News: Production Round-Up Week of 5.28.10

EMCLAPB 

Hollywood is having the same financial ups and downs as the rest of business world.

On the down side, MGM , which is almost $4 billion in debt, said on Thursday that its lenders agreed to let it skip interest and principal payments until July 14. In a news release, the struggling studio said “The lenders took this action in support of the company’s ongoing efforts to evaluate long-term strategic alternatives to maximize value for its stakeholders.” While MGM is treading water to keep from sinking, the creditors are attempting to fend off a take over bid by Time Warner, whose offer they feel is way too low. The creditors are instead trying to figure out a way to restructure the company and keep it as a stand-alone studio.

On the upside, In the first major film financing deal to hit Hollywood since the economic downturn, Village Roadshow Pictures Group on Thursday closed on a $1 billion credit facility to finance its current and future slate of movies. Bruce Berman, chief executive of Village Roadshow Pictures had this statement to make about the lucrative deal.“This new financing enables us to expand upon the solid foundation we’ve established within the industry and grow our slate of tentpole and star-driven films.”

Village Roadshow, which was formed in 1997, has been one of the industry’s leading financiers and producers of studio released motion pictures. Sixty-one of their library of sixty-five movies have been released in partnership with Warner Brothers. This is the longest running partnership that the venerable studio has had with an independent production studio.

Outside of these ups and downs, a lot of new projects are in the works for the folks out in Hollywood land last week. Here is around up of the movies audiences can look forward to seeing.

MOVIE REVIEW: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time – Epic but Ephemeral!

 

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a movie filled with running, jumping, fighting [with fists, words, knives, snakes and darts – among other things]. Like Thief of Baghdad on acid, it is filled with visual wonders and feats of derring-do. It is, in fact, a swashbuckler that, CG aside, owes far more to Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Errol Flynn than the videogame on which it is allegedly based. Spoiler: if you’re expecting War and Peace, stay home!

MOVIE REVIEW: Burton’s Alice Is A Small W Wonder!

Tim Burton and Alice in Wonderland are such a natural combination that it’s a wonder that he hasn’t tried to make an Alice film years ago. Now that he has, it’s likely that it will draw mixed reviews because everyone has a different idea of what a Burton Alice would look like – not too mention the possibility that he’d make a sequel to the Lewis Carroll novels.

3-sheet

Well, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is as odd and vaguely sinister as any Burton fan could ask for. It also pushes the bounds of its PG rating as far as it can. I can see it producing nightmares in younger children and especially sensitive adults. From where I sit, this is a Good Thing. Alice in Wonderland should be a bit darker and more twisted than other classic tales – that aren’t Grimm’s Fairy Tales, at least.

MOVIE REVIEW: Ponyo Miyazaki Makes More Magic!

1-sheet

The worlds created by Japanese master animated filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki are wondrous places where a bus can be a giant cat; waves can be giant, fluid fish and goldfish can have human faces. They are worlds that can be as sophisticated as Citizen Kane, or as subtle as the gentlest child’s book. Ponyo, the first Miayzaki film to garner something approaching a wide release in North America, is a re-working of Hans Christian Anderson’s Little Mermaid – and is far truer to the spirit of tale than the Disneyfied movie.
