Twilight's Saga Will Change To Be More Guy-Friendly

Anyone who thinks guys are interested in Twilight is probably selling something. There’s little doubt that almost the entire audience for Stephanie Meyer’s vampire franchise is female. Nothing wrong with that, it’s not like there aren’t plenty of movies targeted squarely at guys. Except maybe the movie’s producers aren’t happy with an all-female audience. Twilight star Ashley Greene is hinting around that starting with the third movie, they may start luring dudes into buying tickets.

Talking to MTV Greene claims that for The Twilight Saga Eclipse director David Slade is planning something different. She says, “He's ... a little more focused on it being real and maybe it being gorier and a little dark and kind of dramatic.” Gorier? Darker? You mean like an actual vampire movie instead of a romance novel? What a unique approach.

Except the franchise has already been wildly successful as is. Women flock to it without that stuff, in fact they sort of seem to like that it doesn’t have it. So why add it? Dudes. Greene says, “The first one was very focused on this love story and really sweet and it was beautiful, but it didn't have a lot of stuff that guys would go, 'Yeah, I want to go see that,' there's going to be a lot more focus on [action], and the fight scene will have more emphasis on it. I definitely think it will be a little more guy-friendly.”

As a guy who will almost certainly have to sit through these movies that sounds fantastic but again… why? Already plenty of movies targeted at me. Twilight’s fanbase is entirely female, why not keep making movies for them instead of trying to cater to an audience which, let’s face it, is probably never going to exist. I don’t care if they somehow find a way to turn Eclipse into Blade, no guy is ever going to voluntarily see these movies. It’s Twilight. We’re only going if we get dragged by the women in our lives. Let them have their fun, keep the romance, keep the sweet stuff. Leave us out of it.

Something feels wrong here. After all, Eclipse’s director David Slade made no secret of his distaste for the franchise… at least before he got a job directing it. Before he started taking Summit’s paychecks he said this: “Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.” He has since apologized for his statement, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t make it. And now he’s directing the third movie and may be trying to turn it into something his male fans, most of whom feel much the same about Twilight as he did, would be interested in.

Abrams Promises A Politically Relevant Star Trek 2

If there was anything to complain about with the recent Star Trek film, it was that J.J. Abrams, in his effort to make the franchise feel fresh again, abandoned the intellectual side of things, getting away from Star Trek's previous efforts to deal with modern social and political issues.

Abrams has heard your complaints, Trekkies, and promises that the second film will probably go a little deeper than the flashy first. Talking to The L.A. Times, Abrams promised that the second film will have "a very different mission."

"It needs to do what Roddenberry did so well, which is allegory. It needs to tell a story that has connection to what is familiar and what is relevant. It also needs to tell it in a spectacular way that hides the machinery and in a primarily entertaining and hopefully moving story. There needs to be relevance, yes, and that doesn't mean it should be pretentious. If there are simple truths -- truths connected to what we live -- that elevates any story -- that's true with any story."

Roberto Orci, one half of the screenwriting team that will write the second one, echoed Abrams' thoughts. "We got a lot of fan response from the first one and a considerable amount of critical response and one of the things we heard was, ‘Make sure the next one deals with modern-day issues.’ We’re trying to keep it as up-to-date and as reflective of what’s going on today as possible."

If there's a moral to this story, it's that yes, the people responsible for Star Trek right now are very smart, and very geeky, and still deserve your respect. Trust in Abrams, and he will probably reward you with something brilliant once again.

Mamma Mia Sequel May Pick A New Band

Mamma Mia! is not the kind of box office hit that lends itself easily to a sequel
, being based on a play that itself is based on pretty much every good song-- and a few bad ones too-- by a band. So when talks of Mamma Mia 2 arose after the movie became such a phenomenon, it seemed pretty much impossible that it would ever happen. But if Colin Firth has his information right, the producers will find a way.

Talking to Collider at the Toronto Film Festival, Firth has said that ABBA member Benny Anderson doesn't want a second movie full of only obscure ABBA songs, so the producers will have to go a different route. "From what I’m understanding, the people who do want to make it, are considering the possibility of using another bands music. Why not. But that’s speculation."

Of course, Firth is just an actor with no role in the producing process, and it's unclear how his character from the film would even fit into a sequel. But given how many other jukebox musicals there have been, it's entirely possible to see another singer or group lending themselves to a Mamma Mia style movie. Any particular candidates you'd like to see?

Entire Where The Wild Things Are Soundtrack Streaming Free Online

If you're a grown-up who is excited about Where the Wild Things Are, odds are one of the main reasons is the soundtrack. The movie had hit it out of the park with music choices ever since Arcade Fire's "Wake Up" scored the first trailer, but all of the film's music that we've heard so far from Karen O and the Kids has been suitably dreamy, well-crafted and straight-up excellent.

Well, music nerds, prepare yourselves-- the entire soundtrack is available for live streaming right now at Imeem.com. We've also got it embedded below. It includes "All is Love," the track previously available online and now ready for purchase at iTunes, but also the rest of the soundtrack, which includes more songs that sound like singles than the average soundtrack, but is also, y'know, gorgeous.

You can buy the soundtrack starting tomorrow, but stream it first in case you need proof that this soundtrack is a thing of beauty. I remain cautiously skeptical about the film
itself, but the soundtrack has me swept away.

yay!! I'm so excited. There are so many amazing bands out there that I think this will be great. I can see them doing this using the songs of Fleetwood Mac or David Bowie or even Elton John. I'm not a huge fan of any of these 3 but I think their lyrics stand the test of time.

PostSubject: Tim Burton's Alice Goes With Gus Van Sant Next   Thu Oct 08, 2009 11:09 pm

Tim Burton's Alice Goes With Gus Van Sant Next

Mia Wasikowska is probably going to be very famous soon, given that she is playing the lead in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, a movie that's already highly anticipated based on the title and the director alone. But right now she's still an untested property, and for whatever reason, that's exactly what Gus van Sant is looking for.

THR is reporting that Wasikowska has been cast in Restless, van Sant's high-school romance drama that, as we reported earlier, is a "contemporary and distinct take on young love." Most interestingly, Wasikowska apparently ditched the Robert Redford Civil War drama The Conspirator to be in the film, which either means that the part in Redford's movie was no good, or Gus van Sant has a seriously great script on his hands. Whatever he did to get her, he'll probably have a performance from an honest-to-God movie star by the time Restless comes out.
