Superman Doomsday
Plot Summary: IMDB Synopsis (warning: spoilers)
Starring: Adam Baldwin (Clark Kent/Superman), Anne Heche (Lois Lane), and James Marsters (Lex Luthor).
Directed by: Lauren Montgomery, Bruce Timm, and Brandon Vietti.

“Superman Doomsday” marks the beginning of a new era for DC Comics animation. Produced in the style Bruce Timm made famous with “Batman: The Animated Series” and “Superman”, this film is adapted straight from one of DC Comic’s most famous storylines (the Death and Return of Superman) and was made for adults. The violence in the film is brutal and unforgiving. Nothing is held back in Doomsday’s rampage, or that of the Eradicator’s (fans of the comic will recognize that name that is sadly never mentioned in the film). One character’s death leaves a nice sized pool of blood and the image of a sheet draped over a murdered 7 year old girl is unsettling. I highly recommend viewing the film before you let anyone under 13 years old watch it.

It might be a bit premature to say this, but could Guy Ritchie be back? The trailer for his new film, “RockNRolla”, has a vibe and style that reminds me of “Snatch”, and an excellent cast (featuring Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, and Jeremy Piven). I hope the film is as good as the trailer (you can watch it below) and that we are not left with another “Swept Away” or “Revolver”. 

You can also check out the film’s awesome poster here.

Like a phoenix, when one “Stargate” series falls, another one rises from its ashes. First we had “Stargate: Atlantis” just as the original “Stargate: SG-1” series was losing steam, and now that “Atlantis” is reaching its end, “Stargate: Universes” is ready to go where no stargate has gone before. The Hollywood Reporter announced this morning that the new series will be launched with a 2 hour TV movie in early 2009 and will be followed with the new series in the summer.

The new series will of course be overseen by series co-creators Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, who will act as executive producers and writers on the new series. THR goes on to say that the new series “introduces a team of explorers who find an ancient unmanned ship called the Destiny. Unable to return to Earth, the crew must fend for themselves aboard the ship, which has a preprogrammed mission taking them to the far reaches of the universe.” While no “SG-1” or “Atlantis” cast members will be a part of the new shows regular cast, crossovers are expected to continue as they did with “SG-1” and “Atlantis”.

“Stargate” is the Sci Fi Channel’s longest-running original series franchise, so I don’t think this show is that much of a surprise. “Stargate: SG-1” has continued since it was canceled in the form of straight to DVD movies, and it is expected that “Stargate: Atlantis” will do the same after it finished up its last season, which is currently airing on the Sci-Fi Channel. This is a franchise that knows how to streech its legs!

I saw a panel and behind the scenes footage for the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline” at the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con and it blew me away. Henry Selick (who directed “The Nightmare Before Christmas”) is directing “Coraline” in all of its stop motion glory in 3D. The teaser trailer for the film has hit the web and you can view it after the jump…

The IMDB’s Studio Briefings is reporting that restored versions of both “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part 2” will be getting limited releases in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The first movie will be released the week of September 12th, followed by “Part 2” the week of the 26th.

Francis Ford Coppola has been supervising the restorations along with his cinematographer Gordon Willis and Robert Harris, a film preservationist who restored “Lawrence of Arabia”.  

Personally, I can not wait to see “The Godfather” on the big screen for the first time. It is one of those movies that completely deserves to be released in theaters for every generation. It is a real shame that it is only getting released in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

For more info, including some small changes in the films, you can find the original report here.

I’ve been updating our archives and adding in some older reviews written by Phasekitty. She takes an interesting angle with her reviews, comparing adapted films to their source material, or remakes to the original film. I’m really glad to have her as a part of the My Hollywood Dream team.
