I'm not from New Zealand but I might possibly want to check it out but only if it's scalzo approved. I don't waste my time with sub par movies made for sheep.

Damn, Cary Fukunaga left the adaptation of Stephen King's It over creative differences and budget cuts.

 

Collider with a ton of great interviews with the stars of Mad Max: Fury Road and Tomorrowland.

  • Abbey Lee talks about her experiences with Mad Max: Fury Road, Alex Proyas' upcoming Gods of Egypt, Nicholas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon and her worst job before modeling/acting. This girl is funny and cynical af + she knows kung-fu. Love it.
  • Zoe Kravitz talks about Mad Max: Fury Road, the upcoming Dope, and future films.
  • George Miller talks about his return to the franchise, deleted scenes, his version of Contact (before he left and Zemeckis jumped on board) and being a DC comics kid. (He was supposed to direct Justice League in 2008)
  • Brad Bird talks about TomorrowlandThe Incredibles 2 and the potential re-release of The Iron Giant.
  • Britt Robertson and Raffey Cassidy talk about their respective experiences with Tomorrowland, George Clooney advice and pranks, etc.
  • Damon Lindelof discusses Tomorrowland, deleted scenes and alternate ending.

I'm aware as to how redundant that statement sounds but I don't just mean the soundtrack or overall style, but like specific scenes. There are a few shots towards the end in the car park scenes that literally look hand picked from a Refn film (or well vice versa).

Meant the Razzie nom thing. I do agree with the influence on Refn, though.

Watched Slow West earlier. It's fine; such a whimsical Western. The symmetrical framing and bright color palette makes you think that you're watching a Wes Anderson film for a minute.

So bummed out about this. The TV movie freaked me out when I was a kid. Was looking forward to a good director (who actually liked the source material) to bring it to the big screen.
