In the movie biz, dailies are unedited raw footage from the day. The director peruses them and gets a rough outline of the stuff he shot that day. At Swiftfilm, the dailies are the best stories of the day plus some that didn’t make the cut. It’s the unedited form of Swiftfilm, in a fun little package. Enjoy.
When you have a franchise that is going to make you millions you tend to move quickly. Just about a day ago we learned that Gary Ross was not going to do Catching Fire and now Lionsgate has a shortlist for directors they’ll like to see helm their moneymaking sequel. The best choice? Alfonso Cuaron, who did the amazing Children of Men.
I wonder if Clive Owen, who happened to be in Children of Men, will be in the newly announced Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For? Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez have said for years that the Sin City sequel was coming “soon.” You know what else was promised to come soon for a long time? Duke Nukem Forever. And that sucked.
Sin City alum Bruce Willis had the trailer for his new movie, Looper, debut today. After a mind-numbing three days of unnecessary teasers for the teaser trailer. Just give us the damn trailer, all right? Anyway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays an assassin that has to kill the older version of himself in this crazy-good looking sci-fi actioner.
JGL is set to have a big year, not that I think about it. He’s still in The Dark Knight Rises, which had some new photos hit today, including one of Batman holding a funky-looking tricked-out iPad. I bet he’s playing Draw Something. What else is a superhero to do?
I wouldn’t be surprised if future superhero Sabrina the Teenage Witch played some Draw Something too. Sony Pictures does want to take the character Melissa Joan Hart popularized and turn her into an edgy superhero with an origin story like Spider-Man.
Like Joan Hart, Hayden Panettiere got her start as a child. Yeah, Panettiere was in that Remember the Titans movie starring Denzel Washington and a then-unknown Ryan Gosling. She’s been quiet lately, but she’s sprung up playing tennis in a bikini. Why would you play tennis in a bikini? Is it just me or is that kind of weird?
Zac Efron may be able to relate, he also got his start at a young age in a Disney production (High School Musical yo). He has also come a long way, as he’s teaching people how to unhook a bra with one hand in this YouTube clip. He even calls it “his move.” What the hell is that supposed to mean, Efron? Is that how you charmed your Disney Princess Vanessa Hudgens?
If Efron ever gets tired of doing romantic films he should give John Gatins a call. Gatins is looking to develop a film based on Electronic Arts video game property Need for Speed. I’m sensing a Fast and the Furious type of film series here, which isn’t too bad. Speaking of video games, have you played Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic yet?
I’m sure these Stormtroopers have tried it out. After all, they look like they have a lot of time to hit on girls and do other things in this funny Shit Stormtroopers Say video. Just hope their boss Darth Vader doesn’t catch them.
I just realized that Queen’s We Are The Champions is the perfect song partner for Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing, which you can watch sung by classic movie clips. I mean really, you can’t be champions unless you keep believing in yourself.
