I, like most of my friends, really like movies. I like the art that film can sometimes be. I enjoy the experience of going to the theater and paying too much for popcorn and sitting with friends – some of whom hate everything.
I actually have to fight hard to not make every post I write on Sixmile not be about movies or reviews of other media. Maybe that’s a sign. But it’s been a while so here’s some movie news you may not have heard, most of which comes from firstshowing.net :
Keanu Reeves is apparently attached to play Spike in the proposed COWBOY BEBOP live action movie.
There’s a big push in Hollywood right now towards anime. I guess this is because we’re running out of superhero and comic book movies so the next big thing is going to be turning japanese cartoons into big budget movies – this includes dragonball z, akira, and apparently Cowboy Bebop. The proposed budget is described as being “HUGE.”
Miyazaki released a new movie in japan last week. It should be in the US sometime this year. Looks… weird.
Tron 2 is in production… With John Lasseter behind the camera.
Pixar has the new teaser for their next film: “Up.”
And, finally, the trailer for Watchmen looks amazing, despite what you may have heard.
Still writing occasionally,
