Oh, yeah! I’m definitely going to see Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox come to life at the cinema on November 13. It’s not just because Roald Dahl is one of my all-time-favorite authors — all though, that is one of the main contributing factors — it’s also because of the fantastic director, Wes Anderson, and the amazing stars who are providing the voices to Dahl’s brilliant characters: George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Wallace Wolodarsky. You can check out the movie trailer and also see a video of Wes Anderson and Felicity Dahl (Roald Dahl’s wife) talking about the movie and Roald Dahl’s books.

“Let the wild rumpus start!”

 

Excitement and curiosity is brewing amongst fans of the award-winning, bestselling creation of Maurice Sendak, Where The Wild Things Are. October 16, 2009, marks the release date of the movie version of this cherished classic. To take a book which means so much to so many people and turn it into a movie is a very brave task to undertake. After listening to Maurice Sendak speak about the movie in this featurette (below), I have high hopes. Sendak is certainly expecting controversy, but believes that this movie only enriches the story we all love so much.

Mark your calender for February 12, 2010, because The Lightning Thief is coming to the movies! The movie boasts a star studded cast and director Chris Columbus (he directed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets). Here is just a glimpse at the stars you will see: Uma Thurman as Medusa, Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson, and Pierce Brosnan as Chiron. Take a look at the trailer and I am sure you will agree with me that it looks fantastic!
