Tom Yum Goong 2 – Trailer 2
Release Date: (more…)
Keanu Reeves fans are having a gala time this week. Just a day after the first posters of the long-awaited samurai movie “47 Ronin” was released they are treated with the release of an action packed trailer of the movie. Frankly, for long I have been waiting for this as a samurai movie, but instead what I saw in the trailer is more of a mythical fantasy adventure amalgamated with a legendary samurai base plot and swordplay. Would have loved a pure samurai driven movie, but that would require a better director or a Japanese one. At least I’m happy with the fact that with the exception of Keanu they have taken a full cast of Japanese actors.
The original story of 47 Ronin is the most famous example of the samurai code of honor. It is a true historical event which took place in Japan in 1701-1702 and is regarded as a national legend. The participants in that event are known as the “Shi-ju-shichi-shi” in Japanese, and are usually referred to as the “Forty-seven Ronin” or “Forty-seven Samurai” in English. The event is also known as the “Ako vendetta” or the “Genroku Ako incident”. Literary accounts of the events are known as the Chushingura.

Post the success of Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala, John Abraham is looking to do more action films. The actor is slated to star alongside Abhishek Bachchan in Gupta’s next, which also revolves around a shootout. And now we’ve come to know that he is set to do a desi adaptation of 2010 Korean movie, “The Man from Nowhere”.
To be produced by the actor’s production house, JA Entertainment, and Azure Entertainment, the yet-untitled film will hit the floors in September or October.
“The makers have bought the rights officially but it can’t be called a remake. The storyline has been altered to suit Indian audiences,” says an industry insider.
What’s also interesting is that the film will see John teaming up with director Nishikant Kamat, who he has worked with in Force (2011). “It’s an out-and-out thriller and John is extremely excited. Right now, Kamat and a team of writers are wrapping up the script at Ramoji Rao studios (in Hyderabad),” adds the insider. (more…)
One more biopic, and a keenly awaited one, where Naomi Watts is cast as the prized role of Princess Diana. Earlier Jessica Chastain was originally cast in the role, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. I wonder for which movie she left this one, as right now this role is listed among the ones which could garner a best actress nomination in the Academy Awards
“Out of the Furnace” (2013) is the next to be released movie of Christian Bale. Written and directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart), the movie has a very good supporting cast in Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson, Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker, Casey Affleck and Sam Shepard. Touted to be a thriller, the movie is scheduled to be released in the US on December 06th, 2013.
For those who aren’t familiar with the name Scott Cooper, this is only his second directed movie. And for his first directed movie “Crazy Heart”, Jeff Bridges won an Academy Award in best actor category in 2010.
Keenly awaited “Unforgiven” (2013) is the official Japanese remake of the cult Clint Eastwood movie of the same name. They released the first full-length trailer yesterday, where we can see Ken Watanabe (Inception, The Last Samurai, Batman Begins, Letters from Iwo Jima) reprising the role of Clint Eastwood. Koichi Sato stars as Gene Hackman’s character and Akira Emoto as Morgan Freeman’s character. Directed by Sang-il Lee, the movie is scheduled to release in Japan on September 13th, 2013.
It may be noted that Watanabe himself has worked under the direction of Eastwood in his wonderful war-movie “Letters from Iwo Jima”, which was shot almost entirely in Japanese.
“Lovelace” is the bio pic of porn star Linda Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried as the ’70s adult film star.
Here is the official synopsis:
“In 1972—before the internet, before the porn explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor.
As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world—and herself as the survivor of a far darker story.” (more…)
Raja Natwarlal had poor collections on day one as it collected around 5 crore nett on day one. Mumbai circuit was a bit better as Gujarat and Saurashtra fared better and by far the best collections across India. It was a holiday in Maharashtra and Gujarat and that helped Mumbai circuit compared to rest of India but even with holiday Mumbai can not be called good. The rest of the country was poor with North and Central recording dull collections and also not showing that major jump in the evening shows which was needed.Read more...

Before I go into my views about Ek Villain, I’d like to state that I am a huge fan of “I Saw the Devil (ISTD)” (on which Ek Villain is based) and I consider it a cinematic masterpiece. When I heard that Mohit Suri is making an Indian version of ISTD I was contrastively (9 out of 10 times I hate Indianized version of classics) quite glad and upbeat about it. Reason: From the very first time I watched ISTD, I have always felt that it has a very universal story and despite all the violence its core element: “The story of ultimate pain and suffering and confronting it” is applicable to almost every variety of people. What went unforgivably wrong in Ek Villain isRead more...
