“I am not really interested in doing a period piece that wouldn’t have a correlation with what we are living right now. There is a strange modernity to the theme, and maybe “On the Road” is more contemporary today than it ever was. The beauty of road movies is that they teach you that the further you go from the place where you originate from, the better you understand where you are from, and that is kind of a blessing to be able to discover one’s identity. This is a collective endeavor, so it is the result of that blending of perceptions that will actually generate a film and hopefully this interpretation will generate a dialogue with the Kerouac fans.”
“After the death of his father, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a wild and infectiously charismatic ex-con. They hit it off immediately. Determined to avoid the pitfalls of a narrow, prescribed life, Sal hits the road, joining Dean on what evolves into a life-changing physical and emotional odyssey. Thirsting for freedom, they discover the world, the ecstasy of experience, the connectedness of humanity and ultimately themselves.”
The Japanese teaser trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman (Director Rupert Sanders)
Relativity will strike first in the great revisionist Snow White wars of 2012 with Tarsem Singh’s campy take Mirror Mirror on March 30th, but it looks like Universal is going to win the war with their take. Or at least, I hope so.
While the quality of the video is a bit murky, director Rupert Sanders, cinematographer Greig Fraser, and production designer Dominic Watkins have created a feast for the eyes…That shot of Charlize Theron going into the pool of milk like water? That’s awesome!
I eagerly await the trailer for Tarsem Singh’s rival Snow White film, Mirror Mirror. Apparently, that film will be more kid friendly and by kid friendly, I hope they don’t mean more like Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland
