Pumping up money into something hyped may just be the right thing for 20th Century Fox. The home of Terrence and Philip will host the live action movie shootings for Dragonball Z, a movie scheduled for (late) 2008. The company seems eager to invest no less that 100 million dollars into this production - and since it's a "Hollywood" thingy, we can expect to see some familiar names in the cast. Loli Jesus is proud.Details and other crap
The question still stands, WILL IT BE OVER NINE THOUSAND?
We now have a confirmation about PAL Entertainment Productions's live action movie, Grave of the Fireflies. According to ANN
, this project is up and running, at least in theory. Starting next month, Taro Hyugaji will be able to prove himself as a director, after he took the job over from Kazuo Hirohi (who passed away not so long ago, due to a stroke), as filming will start then. The movie is bound to be released somewhere in the Summer of 2008, so stay tuned for either a masterpiece, or an asspiece. There is no in-between when it comes to Grave of the Fireflies, it's either crap or sunshine.
I still got mixed feelings about the recently announced Higurashi no Naku Koro ni live-action movie* (to fap or not to fap, that is the question), but others already have a very strong, and very negative opinion. For some reason or another, a group of angry fans desire nothing short of stopping the movie from being made. So, according to Canned Dogs
, they did what any hopeless group of angry fans does: they started a petition
Now, if history has taught us anything (other than a flat chest is fine, too), it's that online petitions never, ever
work. So I'm betting my Chika porn
collection that neither will this one. Especially since the creator of the original Higurashi game (Ryuukishi07
) has stated that production for the movie is already underway.
Sure, it's hard to imagine anything good coming out of it (good luck cramming 26 mind-bending episodes in a movie!). But there's also at least one reason why the Higurashi movie might just be worth watching: see if you can spot it below...
* Not to be confused with the adult video "Higurashi ga naku koro ni"
According to my pedo comrade's babbling last night, just after he finished Underbog on heroic mode WITHOUT me tanking the shit out of them Bog Lords (PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!), this
chick here is "gonna be Rika in teh Higurashi movie! I'm so busy wanking right now that I can't really understand how I'm typing this" <--- end of quote.
She looks decently pleasant, I must admit. This
is her diary. Now i have absolutely no idea where he found out about this, and I can't be arsed to search for it (Tabula Rasa betatesting, Ichigo Mashimaro OVA'ing), so if this is not true, blame his small and undeveloped Paladin mind.
The only thing gayer than a loser anime character such as Negima,
will be a real-life Negima. With that in mind, you are free to receive this news any way you like it; but before you
jump to any conclusion, let's be honest here and admit that the anime did have some good parts as well. About 30 good, young, juicy parts (multiplied by 2 or 3, depending on how many of their... parts you enjoyed), all of which will be turned into real-life actresses, in the upcoming Negima! live-action movie.
That's right, the movie was finally confirmed this week, after actress Ai Tanimoto "leaked" the news (and various other things) on her blog back in March. The creator of the Negima manga, Ken Akamatsu, announced on his blog
that a live-action adaptation is currently in the works, and it will probably premiere in 2008.
According to ANN
's understandings from a Moon Phase report, "he also discusses the overwhelming experience of casting 31 "3D" girls for the story's all-female class"
I wouldn't mind having an "overwhelming experience" with 31 japanese girls, no sir!
Coming from the universe of Suzumiya Haruhi - The Madness Within, is yet another piece of fascinating news. Japanese actress Sawai Maho who, incidentally, owns a blog
that is plundered with no remorse by her avid fans, mentioned on February 23rd something about a possible live action drama adaptation, that will begin filming next week. The said damsel is to play the role of Ryoko Asakura, the bitch-like humanoid interface that tries to stab Kyon with a knife, after he manly refuses to rape her pretty ass in the classroom. Rumors started late last year about a 6 episode TV drama that was supposed to start airing this summer, but they were quickly retracted and stamped as pure speculation. Of course, the official word on this is yet to confirm, nor deny it, so I wonder just how many faps per day are the Suzumiya fanboys doing, thinking about this movie.
Gankutsuou, the creepy-looking anime created by GONZO în 2004 (and directed by Mahiro Maeda), will finally recive it's long awaited (by me) theatrical film version. I was actually wondering, these past few months (and after watching the show for like... the tenth time) when will this happen. Along with this production, which will be released "at some point in the future", a special, extra, and full of lolies manga will make its way into the desiring hands of readers everywhere (manga created by Maeda himself), being serialised this awful winter in the Kodansha'a Afternoon paper thinghy. I don't know about you, but this show looks really hard to get on stage. The artistic approach (more likely the mad/spooky approach) is unique. And Haydee is hawt.
Except for the recent Otaku Festival
, I had little reason for being proud of being a Romanian in quite a while... until today. As I was scanning through the usual anime websites, much like Kimura-sensei
scanning through a pool full of Kaorin-chans, I sniffed some
used bathing suits
new details about the upcoming Lament of the Lamb live-action movie (the one my pedo comrade mentioned
a few days ago).
At that time, Tokyopop boss Stuart Levy only revealed that they would "script the story in Hollywood, attach a Japanese director, cast in the West, and shoot in Eastern Europe"
. Well, now we know that Lament of the Lamb will be filmed right here in Romania - the land of alcoholic liver diseases and, of course, vampires. This should be great for the movie's setting, which in turn is based on the Lament of the Lamb (Hitsuji no Uta) manga series - a gut-wrenching horror story of a young man who shockingly discovers he may be the last in a bloodline of vampires. You know, the kind of people that suck various body fluids out of little girls?
According to the previous announcement, the movie is expected to be "a metaphor for teenage alienation, twisted sexual desire and insanity, (...) psychological horror at its best"
Other details about the movie were also revealed (...) Continue reading 'Lament of the Lamb movie details'...
