ED HELMS TO STAR
IN 'NAKED GUN' COMEDY REMAKE
Yet another remake announced over in Tinseltown will be a new remake of famous 80's comedy NAKED GUN!

The original movies had three parts in the late 80's and early 90's earning almost $300 million in cinemas. You will also see Ed Helms with Paul Rudd in THEY CAME TOGETHER a romantic comedy similar to SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, and in STRETCH next to Patrick Wilson and Chris Pine, a film about a chauffeur who takes a job for a billionaire who makes his life hell.

NEW '47 RONIN' POSTERS
 KEANU REEVES AS A SAMURAI!
Today, you can also check out new posters for this month's epic adventure 47 RONIN which will samurai its way into cinemas on Christmas day! From ancient Japan's most enduring tale, the epic 3D fantasy-adventure 47 RONIN is born. Keanu Reeves leads the cast as Kai, an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada), the leader of 47 outcast samurai. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honour to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors.

  6. I've see the trailer for Ronin and seen Frozen. Can't wait for Smaug. Maybe after the holidays.

    On a local movie review program, they were saying great things for the new Walter Mitty film coming out.

    1. Yep, or you might watch it over at Hawaii :)
      I also like the looks of WALTER MITTY, seems like a very warm movie

  7. OK. First of all. ANOTHER remake? Is it really that difficult to come up with an original idea?

    OH well...

    Now, 47 Ronin...hmmm...I saw the preview when I took the kids to Catching Fire. It could be really good. I'm just afraid, because Keanu may be pretty, but, well, he's not the best actor in the world, you know??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yep, I know... hopefully he will do more fflying and sword fighting than talking :)

      Delete
    2. That would be good! I can already hear his stupid voice in my head!

      Delete
    3. I wonder if he will have an Asian accent :)

      Delete
    4. From what I heard, he sounds just like Keanu always does. Surfer dude. There was not a lot of him talking though...hope for the movie, perhaps??

      Delete
    5. a surfer samurai... that will be the first one :)

      Delete
    6. He's such a dull actor and he never seems to "inhabit" the character.

      Delete
    7. He reminds me of Brad Pitt in that way, dear

      Delete
  8. What an awesome contest!!! There are so many amazing movies I have yet to see starting with Dallas Buyers Club. I will probably pass on the remake of Naked Gun.

    1. Yep, Debs, so many lovely movies to watch in cinemas this December!

    3. and big thanks to MovieTickets,Com too :)

  9. I know Keanu takes a lot of flack, but I have to say 47 Ronin is looking absolutely amazing. I think it may change some people's minds about him as an actor.

    The Naked Gun I'm not so sure about. It's such a classic, and I don't know that anybody can duplicate Leslie Nielsen's performance. I hope it works, because I'd love to see the series continue, but it's got some very high expectations to contend with.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I also think RONIN looks absolutely brilliant! Visually!
      I'm not interested in the remake either, but if anyone can pull it of it's Ed Helms

      Delete
    2. The Hubby just watched the original Naked Gun 2 nights ago and Bob is right, that role belongs to Leslie. It's like having someone other than Peter Sellers play Inspector Cleauso.

      Delete
    3. Didn't Steve Martin play Cleauso in the recent remake? :)

      Delete
  10. Don't get... Naked! I am looking forward to Ronin 47, I like Reeves... he just a guy who happens to act, though the press whores... will relate this to The Matrix films. It will crash because of that, for me it looks awesome!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It might crash because it hasn't had much of marketing so far... kinda like POMPEII too :( I hate when epic movies crash because they weren't advertized enough

      Delete
  11. Keanue Reeves, just shoot me darling. And Naked Gun doesn't need a remake either.

    A very generous give away from you sweetykins. I'll shall post a link in my blog tomorrow.

    1. I think they just might have :) But it still looks amazing.
      What can I tell you, Peter, Dezzy didn't get the tickets either :) Lucky Americans :)

  13. The story of the 47 Ronin is THE MOST well known Japanese story of all time. I hope they embrace it over here in the States.

    It's going to be awesome!

    Replies
    1. Hope they do, since it premiered over in Japan already and it hasn't been an overly huge success :(

      Delete
    2. It's due to that horrid Keanu creature darling. The Japanese are far too sophisticated for a dolt like him :)

      Delete
    3. I think so too, and who wouldn't be slightly offended when Hollywood makes a film based on your national legend and puts American actor in the lead role?

      Delete
  14. Is this my old friend Dezz's famous Hollywood Spy site? It must be because the red carpet is out, the drinks are flowing and the penguins are at the door. I've been away so long the poor little guys almost didn't recognize me. Sorry I disappeared on you. I promise it won't happen again.

    47 Ronin looks fantastic, I can't believe they are remaking the Naked gun movies, blech. I do love your contest, it sounds exciting.

  21. Here's another comment from me darling. As The Hubby will never see the inside of a cinema again, I would like my entries to be given to Mel. She's going through bad times right now and she could use a lift from a friend.
