  Johnny Depp Is Going To Be A Busy Guy
Posted by: Mike on Sep 25th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Just since I left the office last night, all sorts of Depp news has hit the wire.  Rumors have been confirmed.

  • Depp will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean flick.
  • Depp has been cast as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland (no surprise, we know Burton has a bromance with Depp.)
  • Depp has been cast in The Lone Ranger, as Tonto.

Also, in other awesome movie news:

  • Cars 2 is being worked on for release in 2011.
  • Iron Man comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday.
  • Warner Brothers has green lit a prequel to I Am Legend.

It was a pretty busy night for movie news, apparently.

  Review of Alternate Version of I Am Legend
Posted by: Christine on Apr 8th, 2008 3 Comments »

I Am Legend Alternate Ending

After having seen I Am Legend at the premiere in New York City, I was thoroughly satisfied with the film. It had an elegant ending that left viewers with an explanation, if even a typical Hollywood one.

When the DVD release announcement was made, with the news that an alternate ending would be included, I was anxious to see the “controversial” ending. I had heard that the movie’s original ending was extremely different from the original Richard Matheson novel, so I picked up the book.

For those that don’t know the ending of the Matheson novel, and don’t mind me spoiling it, Show Spoilers

The ending of the book intrigued me, mainly because I think Will Smith would have done a fantastic job with it. This isn’t the ending that the filmmakers made as the alternate ending, but it has similar themes.

The alternate ending is detailed below, behind spoiler hiders. Read on if you have seen the alternate ending, or don’t mind heavy spoilers.

What did you think of the alternate ending of I Am Legend? Did you prefer it over the original ending?

I Am Legend on Blu Ray This week’s new releases are powerhouse films starring big stars. I Am Legend stars Will Smith as Robert Neville, the last man on Earth. Atonement stars Keira Knightley and James McAvoy as lovers torn apart when he’s wrongfully accused of a crime. Enchanted stars the adorable Amy Adams in her own Cinderella-story, where Prince Charming could be James Marsden or Patrick Dempsey (I’m sold either way).
