Tweet Ceasars Palace Las Vegas is clearly damaged and all but destroyed in the new Godzilla International Trailer for the movie by Gareth Edwards due out May 16th and currently in post production. The new Godzilla International Trailer includes the scene where firefighters are looking out from a tower and onto the wreckage that the Las Vegas Strip has become in the wake of an attack my what I think is Godzilla’s challenger, and not Godzilla himself. Indeed, given what seems to be the appearance of an two figures in...

Comments Off on Godzilla Lands Snickers As Marketing Partner, With Funny Results

Tweet Godzilla likes Snickers chocolate candy bars, and the results are funny. Specifically, that commercial where he hangs with young college-aged hipsters, and does pretty much whatever they do. The new ad by BBDO, which ran during the Academy Awards, says that Godzilla is actually a nice guy, he only becomes murderous when he’s hungry. It’s the perfect commercial for the Summer movie Godzilla , due to be released May 16th, and by all accounts on schedule to do so. Legendary describes Godzilla as “An...

Tweet The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Super Bowl Ad Part 1 was released seven hours ago and has already amassed 200,000 views. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Super Bowl Ad reveals a movie that’s really so special effects laden (and the effects are really cool in intent, but average in execution) that I’m wondering if they’re showing too much of the juicy parts of it. Here’s the video: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — Super Bowl Ad Part 1 has average special effects. The overall problem is that you can tell what...

Tweet Godzilla 2014 will be out early – in graphic novel form. Legendary Pictures has just announced that 2014’s most anticipated movie will be released in the form of a graphic novel called Godzilla: Awakening written by Godzilla screenwriter Max Borenstein, and Greg Borenstein. Here’s Gareth Edwards, the movie’s director, to talk about the new publication: Godzilla: Awakening is set “decades before” the storyline of Godzilla 2014 takes place. On Twitter, Max Borenstein says it “a...

Tweet American Hustle is a David O. Russell film by Columbia Pictures and AnnaPurna Pictures that tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (played by Christian Bale of The Dark Night series), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (played by Amy Adams of Man of Steel) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (played by Bradley Cooper of Silver Linings Playbook). Richie DiMaso pushes them into a world of New Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s said to be as...

Tweet Season 1, Episode 5 “The Price of Gold” Directed by David Solomon, Written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz “Emma tries to help a young pregnant woman escape from the clutches of Mr. Gold. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale world that was, Cinderella makes a regrettable deal with Rumplestiltskin.” After last night’s episode, Once Upon a Time has now tied with Revenge as my favorite new show of the fall. The show is clever, well-acted, with an intriguing premise and is watchable for the whole...

Tweet April 15th marks the world premiere of a moving documentary of the famous case of Mildred and Richard Loving a landmark civil rights struggle resolved in 1967 by the United States Supreme Court declaring Virginia’s anti-miscegenation statute – which had been used to arrest the Lovings – unconstitutional.

Tweet More from Washington Whispers: “She said she was done and would not return to the media. But that didn’t stop California’s first lady and former NBC journo Maria Shriver from dipping her toes back in recently when it involved a topic she cared intimately about. Shriver produced a new HBO documentary series, The Alzheimer’s Project, which includes four longer films and 15 short ones detailing different aspects of the disease. She also appears in one, Grandpa, Do You Know Who I Am? based on a book she...

Tweet The landlord of the Parkway Theater at 18th Street and Park Blvd in Oakland evicted the Parkway Theater after severely raising the rent. It’s last day was today, March 22nd, 2009, but the theater can be saved. As an employee reports in this video, the closure was fast; the employees got the notice just four days ago, giving them little time to make adjustments and throwing lives into chaos. Apparently, the theater just had not drawn a lot of people — or at least enough to pay the rent — to maintain itself....

Tweet John Wolf spent 226 days in jail to protect his videos and sources, and caused the creation of a new law protecting video-bloggers. Now Sierra Choi is directing and producing a documentary – the trailer is here as part of my video blog. At the time in 2006, I met Josh when he worked for the television division at Peralta Community College. He was also in the middle of his battle with the Federal Government, but even then was still focused on his work, and didn’t spend a lot of time fretting about what could...

Tweet Christian Bale goes on another profanity-fueled rant where he exhibits the alleged anger management problem that lifted it’s head during the week of the premier of The Dark Knight. So I guess we can say The Dark Knight really is a Dark Knight. But why? What’s up with this great acting talent? ...

Tweet This shocking news.  Author and screenwriter Michael Crichton died yesterday , Election Day, after what was described as a “private battle with cancer”.  He was 66 years old.  For me, Crichton was an introduction to the pop-culture possibilities of science.  From the quasi-possible book and movie  “The Andromeda Strain” to my favorite  “Jurrasic Park” , to his take on Japan / American economic and corporate relations “Rising Sun” and...

Tweet In a trailer that would get the attention of Kofi Bonner , Steven Speilberg and George Lucas have released the trailer for Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. The trailer touches on the past and gives a look at the future, at a movie that is sure to delight fans of the series — like myself — as well as people who have not seen an Indiana Jones movie at all. Here’s the trailer: ...

Tweet Actress Bonnie Piesse appeared at WonderCon in San Francisco and was kind enough to listen to my stupid question regarding her time playing “Aunt Beru” in Star Wars Episode II and Star Wars Episode III. In our conversation Bonnie explains that the baby she held was in fact not real, but was made to feel like a real baby. She also offered that George Lucas, who directed and produced the movies, was relaxed and easy to work with. Finally, Bonnie talks about her music and her album which is set to debut in...
