The popular BBC's six-part television series WALKING WITH DINOSAURS, from 1999 which was viewed by more than 700 million people around the world, will be made into a huge CGI and live-action 3D feature film by 20th Century Fox. Using live-action footage of scenery and CGI creatures to create an intimate and engaging 3D adventure for the entire family WALKING WITH DINOSAURS will transport audiences to a breathtaking prehistoric world when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.
Now this is something fresh: Disney is planning to make a family adventure film TIKI, which will be set in the world of Polynesian mythology according to "Heat Vision". The film will be inspired by the Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland which displays Polynesian culture, Hawaiian gods, mystic wooden masks and engravings.
You can also check out a beautiful poster for SEASON OF THE WITCH, in which Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence. A priest, a grieving knight, an itinerant swindler and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight join the mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl. When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight’s pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force. The film is out next January.
Ah, we've been waiting for it for ages and now it's finally here - the trailer for the Roman epic THE EAGLE with the amazing cast including Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Donald Sutherland and Mark Strong. Coming out next February, this epic follows a master and his slave who are trying to solve the mystery of the famous Ninth Legion which had disappeared in Britannia along with their treasured golden Eagle emblem. The two of them set out into the vast and dangerous highlands of Scotland to confront its savage tribes and retrieve the hallowed Eagle. Along the way they will discover some personal secrets as well and will come face-to-face with the warriors of the fearsome Seal Prince (played by TaharRahim).
Hi friend.. we have published the same trailer today for the Eagle. ;) And Season of the Witch also will be up soon in my movie cafe.ReplyDelete
Well, THE EAGLE is the main bird of the day :)) no wonder it appears everywhere today at movie sites. Can't wait to see many pics from the sets of SEASON OF THE WITCH over at your cafe ;) Serve it with some black tea and lemon, you know I don't drink coffee :)ReplyDelete
The trailer put Eagle on my must see list. Te others also look promising.ReplyDelete
I'm not much of a Nick Cage fan, but the poster for Season of the Witch is quite compelling, and the story sounds just interesting enough that I might watch it!ReplyDelete
Can't wait for The Eagle! I was a huge, huge ROME fan. :)
I've been waiting for Season of the Witch despite Nicolas Cage, as it's a cool premise. Poster's great, too.ReplyDelete
WOW! the eagle looks terrific!ReplyDelete
season of the witch sounds excellent and the poster is great... but nicholas cage feels like the same character in everything. sometimes it works, but usually i just wish they cast someone else. he is the anti-cate.
and YAY i'm super excited about the walking with the dinosaurs one! love dinos so so very much! :)
It has been awhile since we have had a Dinosaur film. Hope this is a good one, Jurassic Park was not my thing.ReplyDelete
Tiki....right after Princess Kaiulani.
The Eagle sounds awesome! Very excited!
Nicholas Cage the 14th century crusader? Sounds like some interesting fodder in this one so I'll check it out--when it comes on DVD.ReplyDelete
A movie based on the Enchanted Tiki Room? Does Disneyland still have an Enchanted Tiki Room attraction? I remember that from when I was a kid in the early 60s. Sounds like a potential retro bore to me. Aloha and goodbye to that bit of wikki-wacky-poo.
Tossing It Out
hmm... interesting. Another movie based on a Disney ride. hmmm... And I like the sound of SOTW, but ig. Nick Cage has been testing the limits for me~ ;pReplyDelete
I don't usually care for Nick Cage or Channing Tatum, but these films look okay.ReplyDelete
The Eagle looks interesting - but the natives?? Didn't know my ancestors had the Mohican thing going on.ReplyDelete
They look interesting, and Season of the Witch is especially calling my name.ReplyDelete
glad you like the trailer :)
@Summer and Alex
it seems Nicolas Cage is not a popular guy :) He does seem weird in most of his roles.
we really haven't seen dinosaurs since JURASSIC PARK :) Cage really is an Anti-Cate :)
another native princess maybe for you? :)
retro-bore he he he :))
he he I think he's testing everyone's limits :)
glad you like the films
and how about the natives in CENTURION with Olga Kurylenko, was that one realistic?
glad you like it, Medeia ;)
Tiki sounds interesting....ReplyDelete
Is Season of the Witch related in any way to the George Romero film of the same name.
The Eagle looks super cool. I like the sound of the others as well :) Exciting times :)ReplyDelete
it's not related, Andrew :)
eagle is a cool bird :)
Sorry to be the gloomy gus here but I'm not at all interested in The Eagle despite my affinity for swords & sandals flick & Jamie Bell... the reason? Channing Tatum. I am however excited for Centurion, which hopefully be arriving from Netflix this week yet.ReplyDelete
ah, I know you do not share my love for Channing, Flixy :) CENTURION was OK, I watched it earlier this year. Nothing special, but not bad at all.ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting this, Dez. Both Season Of The Witch and Eagle sound like potentially good movies.ReplyDelete
glad you like the movies, Eric ;)ReplyDelete
Bummer, CENTURION is listed as being on short wait on Netflix so I might not see it until next weekend. Yeah, I don't think it's all that great but with Mr Fass my Bender (he..he.. I'm starting to talk like you now!), I don't think it'll be bad either.ReplyDelete
ah, yes, Flixy, that happens to a lot of people who spend some time with me :)) I assimilate them quickly and they adopt the language of the Borg :)ReplyDelete
Don't forget that it's not just Mr Fass my Bender but Mr Fass my Bender running around Scottish highlands bare chested :)
The Eagle looks pretty good, though there've been a few Roman movies out recently, and they all look kind of similar.ReplyDelete
I'm not too sure about the new Walking With Dinosaurs. Though over a decade old, there's nothing wrong with the original. Leave well enough alone, I say :P
they do look alike because the studios don't want to give big budgets to epic films, so most of them turn into simple action films set in some historical period :(ReplyDelete
