The most recent addition to Gulliver’s Travels is Amanda Peet.
I know what you’re thinking, “Oh god, another remake?!” Yes, another remake. The typical Hollywood tale, take a classic, throw a bunch of stars at it, and hope it makes money. Do not come up with something original.
The cast now includes Amada Peet, who joins Jack Black, Emily Blunt, Jason Segel and Chris O’Dowd.
Filming has already begun, and Gulliver’s Travels is scheduled for a June 4, 2010 release.
Greetings, kids! The Box Office totals for this weekend have arrived. Did I get it right this time or am I way off? Take a peek and find out in this week’s edition of DIB?!
Be Kind Rewind: How would you think a video store would save itself when an employee has erased the tapes with his own natural magnetism? Remake and re-shoot all the movies in the craziest manner you can think of! Will It Bomb? Putting Jack Black and Mos Def together was a very good idea! I loved the trailer and the premise of the film, although I wished it was geared towards older audiences. It’ll hit the middle of the Top 10. Did It Bomb? It did fairly well, friends. Making $4.1 million, this eased into the #7 spot. Outcome: Mezza-mezza. ½ out of 4.
Happy weekend, everyone! It’s that time again! The studios are trucking out their latest wares, and it’s up to all of us viewers as to whether we want to shell out the cash and personal time! Here’s what coming to a screen near you! Is it going to bring in some dough or fall flat immediately?
Welcome to this week’s installment of WIB?!
Be Kind Rewind: Mos Def and Jack Black are clerking at a video store (no, this isn’t the classic Kevin Smith flick!), and all the tapes the customers have returned were completely erased. JB has the power to suck all the magnetic force out of the tape! What now? They run to shoot their own versions of these movies, with their own crazy style and at a shorter running time. Will It Bomb? Being the spastic comedic genius has been good for Jack and Mos Def has done well as the foil (with his awesome role in The ItalianJob) and I’ve been waiting this kind of flick. I was hoping for it to be a little more adult-friendly, though. While this is rated PG-13, the trailer made me laugh my head off! Regardless, I’m betting on a middle of the 10 ranking.
