One of my favourite directors, Wes Anderson, who hasn't gone wrong (yet) has a new movie trailer out today. It's called "The Darjeeling Limited" which to me right now, is everything but memorable. I'm a huge fan his other work: Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic (with Steve Zissou). What's different about this film is that it's a story about your typical dysfunctional family who are having some bonding and communication problems but in India.
It's plot synopsis goes a little something like this: "An emotional comedy about three brothers re-forging family bonds. The eldest, played by Wilson, hopes to reconnect with his two younger siblings by taking them on a train trip across the vibrant and sensual landscape of India". Unfortunately, it's not out until early 2008 but we have Natalie Portman to wait for. Click here for the high definition trailer cos dat's how we playas do.
His next project is equally exciting: Roahl Dahl's "The Fantastic Mr. Fox". Cool beans, if were to you ask for me for my professional opinion. *Sweet Bonus* Watch the original 1994 Bottle Rocket short film here.
In other movie news, Zachary Quinto (who plays Sylar in the brilliant Heroes) has been going around publicly campaigning for the role of young Spock in the upcoming JJ Abrams Star Trek XI film. Apparently JJ was more than just interested and it's now reported that Quinto’s deal with Paramount is pretty much a done deal.
There's going to be a hell of a lot of comic book related news in the next few days at Comic-Con International. I'm seriously looking foward to The Dark Knight trailer, Watchmen movie (which already has a rumoured cast), Ironman (cast and full suit!), Stardust, Lost Season 4, Superman Doomsday (?), Indiana Jones 4 and more. Oh yeah, Cloverfield too. Hopefully, they'll pick a good proper title. I'd hate for it to be called "Monstrous" or something. That would be really stupid. Oh, wait.
