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.
Yes, CinemaCon is still going on. Disney took the chance to talk about stuff. Like hey, we know that everyone knows Muppets 2 is a foregone conclusion but here’s our official announcement. Oh and they announced something awesome too: A Dia de los Muertos Pixar film from the director of Toy Story 3. Genius.
Star Wars Land would be genius, if it were real. Actually, let’s be real. Tomorrow Land is basically Star Wars Land. It’s got Star Tours and a couple shows like lightsaber training. So really, it’s not too much of a stretch for Disney to re-label Tomorrow Land into Star Wars Land. Unless, well, it’s a rumor about Disneyland Paris only.
This isn’t a rumor anymore: Disney’s awesome-looking video game movie Wreck-It Ralph will feature cameos from classic Nintendo, Sega and Atari characters. Yes, it’s the only work those characters could get. No word on whether newer and more busy characters like Master Chief will make an appearance.
Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga are pretty busy – they’re probably too busy to do a cameo in a big movie like Men in Black 3, but their faces will appear as aliens on a survival board. Look, you don’t have to hide the fact that Lady Gaga is an alien behind a movie joke.
Hopefully this is a joke: at CinemaCon, theater execs are considering letting stupid kids use their cellphones in a theater. Why? Because these execs think that taking away phones from young people makes them feel like they’re handcuffed. I call it kids being spoiled and selfish. At least the exec behind The Alamo Drafthouse says no cellphones ever. Grow a spine, please.
I must say I don’t have the spine to stay trapped on a boat with a giant bengal tiger, but good thing I’m not this guy in Ang Lee’s Life of Pi. And boy, doesn’t this image just look like the best wallpaper ever?
How many people have made Scarlett Johansson their wallpaper? Probably a ton. Just know you won’t get any new material out of her appearance in Iron Man 3. See, she’s not going to be in Iron Man 3. It’s OK, you can still watch her in The Avengers.
