BLAME is the directoral debut for Australian director Michael Henry which is making its world premiere at Melbourne Film Festival with its national release on September 2nd. Movie stars Sophie Lowe, Kestie Morassi, Damian de Montemas , Simon Stone, Mark Leonard Winter and Ashley Zukerman.

Seeking justice and revenge, five friends violently attack a man in his remote country house. Their plan: the perfect murder. Confident that their victim's death by his own hand will not be questioned, they overdose him on sleeping pills, but it all goes horribly wrong when their attempt fails and their victim fights for his life. 

In the aftermath, questions are raised about the true nature of the events leading up to the botched attack. As lies and secrets are revealed, the dynamic of the once-tight group shifts as the friends begin to question each other's motives. As they move closer to the truth, the weight of their quest for justice drives them to a place of no return.

It took me a few minutes to click this movie is an adaptation of one of my favourite author's Haruki Murakami NORWEGIAN WOOD. Movieis directed by Vietnamese director Anh Hung Tran and it will be the author's first book to be transfered to the big screen so alot of expectations will be very high. The trailer doesn't show much (it is only a teaser) to have any thoughts on it but it does look good so far. As this book is inspired by an Beatles song music will probably play a big part of this movie and ive seen a few posts that say this movies score maybe be by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood so interest is even greater now!!!
Norwegian Wood stars Rinko Kikuchi,Ken'ichi Matsuyama and Kiko Mizuhara with the movie due for release in Japan on December 11th, trailer after the break...

About 2 weeks ago I posted the trailer for Benny Chan's maniac mutant american comicbook inspired movie City Under Siege now it has its main trailer which you can watch above and will be out on August 12th. It looks even more cheesier but hey comicbook inspired movies are the populas in movies worldwide so we cant argue but its from Hong Kong so the martial arts will be good though.

Synopsis: Sunny (Aaron Kwok) is a clown in a circus act but he aspires to be a top performer just like his dad, The King of Flying Knife. While in Malaysia, Sunny and a few of his circus performer friends go for a treasure hunt, stumbling upon barrels of bio-chemicals left from the war.
Upon returning, some of the members are mutating due to inhaling the bio-chemicals but Sunny seems fine from the exposure. They gain extraordinary superhuman powers. The leader of the entertainment outfit Chang Tai Chu (Colin Chou)decides to use this newfound strength to do evil.
As there is an increase of crime in the city, the media and the police get involved. Kungfu master Suan Hou (Wu Jing) and policewoman Xin Hua (Zhang Jin Chu) enter the fray, while Angel (Shu Qi), a reporter who is recently demoted, also pursues the case in hopes of rescuing her flagging career.

Below is the French trailer for Julian SchnabeL's movie MIRAL starring Slumdog Millionaire's Frieda Pinto, Willem Dafoe,Vanessa Redgrave and Alexander Siddig.
Hiam Abbass plays a Palestinan woman who sets ( real) orphanage in Jerusalem and Pinto plays Miral a girl who grows up in the orphanage becoming a activist when she is assigned to teach at a refugee camp and sees the whole outcome that Palestinians & Israelis dont get on well with each other.
The movie will annoy a few folks especially in States as politically could be seen as left wing and the shocking thing is The Weinstein Company are releasing this movie in USA?! The messege of this film will be alot more forceful than Schnabels last movie Diving Bell and the Butterfly which is a big hit with many critics.
Miral is due out late 2010.

2008 German director Dennis Gansel had a worldwide hit with The Wave the true story of a school experiment in fascism gone badly wrong proving how weel he canblend young person's pop culture with major issues.

It's not just the American's who like to bring Comicbooks to the big screen, the Japanese do to and have probably doing it a lot longer than there Yankee cousins. The trailer below is an fine example of Manga/Anime adaptation of Gekijô-ban: Kaidan resutoran:THRILLER RESTAURANT.
The movie is based on thepopular manga book series that ran from 1996-2007 based on a Kaiden restaurant Obake Garcon (Ghost Waiter) tells horror stories to children. The books have just recently been created into a anime which aired last october and this movie actually is a animtion/live action hybrid with the first 13 minutes all been in animation before converting to live action.
This is basically one for the young teens/kids and its strange that the movies director Masayuki Ochiai is more known for his adult horrors like Parasite Eve, Infection and Hollywood remake of the Thai horror Shutter.

Thriller Restaurant will be in Japanese cinemas from August 21st, trailer after the break...

English Version Trailer For Anime REDLINE


source Twitchfilm
Back in the early 1990's I was lucky in the UK to have a chance tp follow Manga& Anime when you could go into shops buy various magazines, watch anime on tv that wasn't Pokemon or Beyblade, new videos (it was still video back in those days)out everyweek and you had unlimited resources to find out whats going on. Nowdays thanks to antianime sentsationalised reporting by the rightwing media of UK the fanbase has went more underground or struggles to find where to get new movies/comics, its sad because theres more to anime than just Naruto. I still love to delve in and see what I'm missing but finance prevents me going further because when you have great anime like REDLINE you want to be involved more.
Redline is the creation of Takeshi Koike (Ninja Scroll) and Katsuhito Ishii (Taste of Tea) for Madhouse Studios and the movie will be getting a release in North America soon as for UK & Ireland thats a good question.
It's sad in today society especially in UK & Ireland watching animation or reading manga and your over 25 the media regards you as mentally unstable, if only they understood animation and comic books are for all ages!

The movie isn't due until 2011 and it does look fantastic a  dancer, a prositute, a criminal who all seem to be the same person and they need a few extra bob to finish off the movie and I wont be surprised they'll get it.

Trailer For Allan Ginsberg Biopic HOWL

No comments:

source ThePeoples Movies
We’ll be seeing alot of James Franco in the next 12 months with Rise of The Apes, Eat,Pray,Love, 127 hours and now HOWL
Franco plays poet Alan Ginsberg who is a leader in the 1950′s Beat generation and the movie focuses on the obscenity trial he was involved in 1957.The movie has done the festival run and came back with alot of rave reviews and now September 24th the movie will be released stateside, no UK/Irish date has been confirmed
plot:It’s San Francisco in 1957, and an American masterpiece is put on trial. Howl, the film, recounts this dark moment using three interwoven threads: the tumultuous life events that led a young Allen Ginsberg to find his true voice as an artist, society’s reaction (the obscenity trial), and mind-expanding animation that echoes the startling originality of the poem itself. All three coalesce in a genre-bending hybrid that brilliantly captures a pivotal moment-the birth of a counterculture. -imdb
The movie stars Jeff Daniels, Mary Louise Parker, Jon Hamm, David Strathairn, Alessandro Niovla with Rob Epstein directing, trailer after the break...
