CASPER Comes Back

What's Playing reports that plans are afoot to bring Casper The Friendly Ghost back to the big screen. The character, now owned by Classic Media, had been the subject of two feature films produced by Steven Spielberg. After that it went into an continuous chain of straight-to-DVD releases. Now Classic is hoping to restore the luster on this classic character with a new feature film.

Casper was last seen in the animated series "Casper's Scare School" which may enjoy a second season this year.
 

 

 

Hemsworth Talks THOR

Marvel.com chats up actor Chris Hemsworth about the Thor movie.

As fans can tell from the latest trailers, the movie finds Thor cast down from Asgard by Odin as punishment for his arrogance and battle lust. Hemsworth said it's tricky to portray a character that starts off so deeply flawed and potentially unlikeable.

"Certainly, that’s a big part of this film. He has to be that warrior and he still has to have those elements. That’s what makes him Thor. But also, you don’t want to watch a guy for too long on screen who’s just a jerk all the time," Hemsworth said. "You get moments of it, where it’s kind of cool and bad, but then it just gets old. You’ve got to find that balance, and at the right times, sneak a bit of it back in."

Director Kenneth Branagh prepped Hemsworth by providing certain literature, which wasn't limited to Thor comics.

"Kenneth got me Siddhartha, a Hermann Hesse book, about a man trying to find his place in life," recalls Hemsworth. "It’s about a person who goes through all these temptations. Thor, in effect, is different from Siddhartha, but it’s a human being trying to find out his purpose and how he’s going to go about his life. Ken said, ‘Look, this is just a bright book that I love. It might give you something for the film or just personally.’ I love it, it’s certainly one of my favorite books."

The character's interactions with Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman) are part of his quest back to becoming worthy enough to wield Mjolnir, which Hemsworth said is a pretty strange weapon of choice, at least as Jack Kirby designed it back in the 1960s.

"It’s a rather impractical weapon in a sense," Hemsworth said. "It’s got this big huge head on it and a tiny little handle. We talked about boxing a lot actually, I’ve done Muay Thai for years, which keeps you on your toes, but boxing is a more grounded technique. You talk about Mike Tyson, low to the ground, using your power through your legs. A lot of that influenced Thor, with big shoulder movements. It becomes sort of gritty, street fighting stuff at times. He also happens to have a big hammer in his hands at the time too."

Thor opens in theatures May 6th.

 

 

C2F Quick Hits

  • Scene Louisiana goes fishing for confirmation that The Dark Knight Rises will film in New Orleans with Warner Bros. SVP  of Production Ravi Mehta and comes up empty. Mehta admits that the movie will seek a third location city outside of the U.K., Los Angeles, and doesn't rule out New Orleans, but doesn't offer anything hopeful either.
     
  • Animation superstar Paul Dini tells Newsarama that the new Ultimate Spider-Man TV series debuting this year on Disney XD will have an interesting new look. "I think it’s really going to take people by surprise. It’s going to take people by surprise as much as the Batman show in
    the early ‘90s took comic fans by surprise."
     
  • Art of the Title has a great in-depth look at the fun opening titles for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

Here are the spoilers that were posted on the message boards:

  • There is a certain someone that I know who is willing to provide information on Thor since they got a chance to see the whole movie,I will post spoilers as soon as possible like after I have received the information ... In the past they were reliable when I asked them about Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. This special person works for a boss who deals with figuring out the audiences opinion on movies after they have seen them ...
  • Thor ends up getting knocked out (unconscious) by The Destroyer.
  • Movie starts off with Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings and Stellan Skarsgård in a van out in the New Mexico desert observing a phenomenon in the sky. This is when Thor drops to Earth... Natalie Portman accidentally hits him with her van (which she does again later in the film)
  • We cut to a flashback of Thor back on Asgard. He's about to be anointed king by his dad (Anthony Hopkins) when two frost people or whatever they're called infiltrate the palace and try to steal a "casket" which Thor's dad got during a battle with the frost people on their planet.
  • Thor tries to convince his dad to wage war against the frost people after they broke the truce with Asgard. Thor's dad refuses; Thor, Loki and 3 other soldiers (Jaime Alexander and two dudes) end up going to the frost planet alone
  • Thor's dad comes to the rescue just as the Frost people are about to kill Thor and his warriors (despite Thor kicking *** for much of the scene)
  • Inside his detention cell; Thor is visited by Loki...who tells him that his father has died
  • Thor confronts the Destroyer, and apologizes to Loki (via a conduit with the Destroyer) about what caused him to be resentful of Thor after becoming king of Asgard.
  • It was actually Loki who helped the frost people infiltrate the Asgard palace; Loki made a deal with the frost king in that Loki would help the frost king kill Thor's father in exchange for Loki assuming complete control of Asgard (this was a LIE)
  • Thor destroys the Destroyer by a blow to the head by his Hammer
  • Thor shares a kiss with Natalie Portman before going back to Asgard to confront Loki--who kills the frost king just as he is about to kill Thor's father (Loki essentially did everything as a way to earn Odin's respect)
  • Out on the rainbow bridge, Thor defeats Loki. He and Loki are hanging along the edge of the bridge and are about to be sucked into a wormhole when Odin (who regained consciousness when Thor returned to Asgard) comes to their rescue.
  • Loki tells Odin that he "did this all for him" (killing the frost king and about to destroy his planet)...but Odin replies that he didn't want peace "like this." Loki realizes he failed his father once again and lets go of the bridge...falling into the wormhole
  • Back in the Asgard palace, all is well. But we see Thor on what remains of the Rainbow bridge...asking the Gatekeeper (Idris Elba) what Natalie Portman is doing back on Earth.
  • Thor had to destroy the rainbow bridge (with his Hammer), which was his only way to get to Earth, because Loki threaten to go to Earth and kill Natalie Portman
  • The Gatekeeper replies with "She is searching for you." Final shot of the film is of Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings and Stellan Skarsgård inside a room working on their science equipment.

Sweet, would love to see a clearer picture of Capt.America in action but that looks pretty damn awesome. Man when is the first trailer coming?

THOR spoilers sound ok, still not sure I believe them. I can't wait to see this and the part on the Rainbow Bridge if true sounds awesome. Nothing about the secret cameo though. Maybe they didn't shoot that til after the movie was complete.

When you start drawing any sort of comparisons to Batman TAS I can't help but get excited. Now I really really nwant to see what they're doing with this new Ultimate Spiderman cartoon

LocoLobo73 1/3/2011 8:35:48 AM

If Paul Dini is involved with Marvel Animation, this is  great news, and I cant wait to see it. 

The Thor spoilers sound great , and I think your right Wise , the Renner stuff was more than likely done after principle photography was completed and it maybe an after credits scene.  which is why they poster who saw the early cut didnt see this scene. I read also that most of this cut was like the copy of Wolverine that was released on the internet with alot of unfinished FX. 

The Cpa Pic of him fighting the Red Skull looks pretty cool cant wait to see more of this flick, I heard that they are releasing the trailer with the Super Bowl , has anyone has heard that or can confirm it . What a great way to see the trailer , along with the Patroits whipping whomever has the unfortunate luck to face us in the SuperBowl. RED  WHITE and BLUE , HELL YEAH !!!!!!!!

The Green Lantern toys look as shitty as the CGI costumes.

I'm trying to be optimistic, really trying, I can almost deal with Ryan Reynolds being the way he is - but those CGI costumes... it just looks ridiculous. What a mistake.

Rheul_home 1/3/2011 10:14:00 AM

Those Thor spoilers werent so bad. I think its all along the lines we expected.

The Cap pics were a real jip.

The GL toys look like crap.

Im looking forward to the Spidey cartoon. If its just half as good as The Avengers we are in for a treat!

wessmith1966 1/3/2011 10:15:21 AM

If the spoilers are correct, the Thor storyline will be what I expect. Really looking forward to this movie. I'm really hoping to see a cap trailer soon. I think Evans looks great as cap.

madmanic999 1/3/2011 12:38:26 PM

Thor sounds good, but a few lines does not a good movie make... need to see these scenes play out.  I need to see the flying super strong Thor, anything less will be a disappointment, so I hope they don't tone his power down (that is kinda how it looks in the trailer).... GL toys look like crap, but most movie toys do... don't think this has much to do with the film quality.  GL needs to be a SCi Fi Super Hero movie, if they dumb it down, or jazz it up... it will suck... stick to the source material.  Hal is a hotshot risk taker, not a cocky one lining braggart.  Cap looks great in the old WW2 suit, but I am more concerned with the modern take... need to see more of that.  Once again, this movie needs to play out right, the character has a very distinct personality, if they try to make him the next Tony Stark, then this will circle the drain.

What confuses me with the comments of the new Spiderman series being compared to Batman: The Animated Series is that Batman is a rather dark character and wasn't portrayed as so on TV let alone animation in that tone before. However Spiderman isn't a dark character and has had at least three different animated series, plus the three Spiderman Movies. Unless I see Green Goblin outright killing people or a Sept.11th episode I won't be surprised by anything.

Thor spoilers and all still sounds awesome. I trust Branagh because he made the best adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, plus I believe he's got a very good and clear vision of Thor.

Captain America looks cool, but we've still yet to see him in mask and all, nor the Red Skull.

Green Lanter figures look kinda bad. Tomar Re looks a bit elongated and too much like an orange Parrot Fish. I'll wait and see on the video game. I just hope it's not another Superman Returns where the flying just distracts from the combat.

LocoLobo73 1/3/2011 4:50:01 PM

Kraken there was no combat in Superman Returns.the Flying was the only thing that looked cool in the whole movie, like when he catches the plan or stops the fire, other then that he got stabbed in the back and got kicked around the school yard by some poser bad guys, EPIC FAIL.

ponyboy76 1/4/2011 9:14:26 AM

The Thor spoilers sound pretty cool and as stated if legit are kind of what I expected. especially with Brannagh at the helm. In its essence, its a very Shakespearen story, which is good. Whomever wrote these spoilers doesn't sound much like comic book fan (frost people?, their planet?). I 'm curious about the Hawkeye cameo.  Renner was a great choice to play Clint Barton.
