    Stuff You Need to Know: David Tennant, Ready to Do Battle With the Undead

    David Tennant

    Pop culture news. There’s a lot of it. So you need it in easily digestible chunks with all the bloat removed. And you don’t need it the instant it becomes known. Or if you do, this post isn’t for you. But for those of you who have lives but still want to be kept up to date and stuff, here you go. You’re welcome. You can subscribe to the Stuff feed solo or get this as a free email newsletter.

  • Well, at least we get two things out of this new Fright Night trailer. One, we get some David Tennant. And we look to him to at least entertain us if the entire movie just goes right to hell. And two, we get a bit of humor–the last trailer was straight up serious, which left me cold. The great thing about the original film was that it was a horror movie with enough comedy in it to keep it from going 100% dark. It was a nice blend. So if they can get some of this dialogue with this cast and an updated version of that feel, we might have a decent movie on our hands.

    Planet 51 (2009) – Movie Review

    Planet 51 movie poster

    Written by: Joe Stillman
    Directed by: Jorge Blanco, Javier Abad & Marcos Martinez
    Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Justin Long, Jessica Biel, Gary Oldman, Seann William Scott, John Cleese

    My Advice: Not just no, but hell no.

    It’s a lovely place to build a home and raise a family. There’s classic music, there’s good wholesome values and as long as you can deal with alien dogs that pee acid, you’re fine. Of course, what ruins everything is the arrival of one of those pesky humans in the form of Chuck Baker (Johnson), who is no doubt, being an alien, the vanguard of an alien force. Baker must be found and turned over to the government before it’s too late. The only person…um, yeah, sure, person…standing in the way is Lem (Long), a kid who has dreams of working at the local observatory.

    The shame is that I was perfectly willing to go along with this quirky alien-to-us world. The alien dog peeing acid thing was amusing (the last scatalogical joke in the film to be funny, in fact), the animation and character designs were decent enough and the setup was funny. Then the actual plot of the film started. The astronaut shows up and quickly sets back–about ten years–the opinion of NASA in the minds of those with single digit ages. Now I know that astronauts probably have some ego–that’s to be expected when you’re chosen to be part of a small elite cadre that the U.S. government will spend billions on to light a fire under your ass and send you off-planet–but I certainly hope they’re not the smug, cowardly, self-centered pricks that Baker makes us think they are. I’d ask Buzz Aldrin but he might punch me.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Tomorrowland, the Movie of Tomorrow!

    Tomorrowland
  • Tomorrowland is going to be adapted into a motion picture, according to Variety. That’s right, not a theme park ride–but an entire theme park section–is going to be made into a film. The star? Dwayne Johnson. However, “Disney denies the film has been titled ‘Tomorrowland’ or is dedicated to the park’s section.” So basically by denying this, Disney has just stated they’re working on a generic sci-fi project. I think it should be about a theme park being attacked by the world’s weather and call it The Day After Tomorrowland. I know, the joke’s bad, but you’d see that before you’d see Untitled Disney Sci-Fi Project Starring The Rock, wouldn’t you?
  • Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is yet another movie becoming a musical. It starts in the West End in March, even though it stated in Sydney back in 2006. It was adapted for the stage by Stephan Elliott, who brought it to the screen in the first place. I wonder how many other movies-now-musicals are out there, just shambling towards Broadway. Here, have a taste, just because:

    Stuff You Need to Know, Tuesday, September 9, 2008

  • Blue Man Group is going for Imax 3-D screens with their first feature. The original Blue Men (Matt Goldman, Chris Wink and Phil Stanton) are on board with production to start next June and it being released a year later. Here’s an interesting bit that Goldman revealed: “Back in Katzenberg’s day at Disney, they actually assigned Frank Oz to work with us. We just couldn’t figure it out. It’s a hard medium when you don’t talk.” Would love to see what they were able to come up with, Blue Men and Oz… Source: Variety.

    We can probably expect some of this madness, but coming right at you!!:

  • New word on the Ghostbusters 3 front…check out my brief history of Ghostbusters 3 post, which I’ve updated to reflect Ramis’ statement confirming things.
  • Lawsuits happen all the time and unless there’s some hemming and hawing about it, I don’t mention them here because they don’t affect you and thus you don’t “need to know” about them. But since this was brought up at one of our panels: J. K. Rowling has won her Harry Potter Lexicon lawsuit and an injunction has been placed against the publication. Source: Hollywood Reporter.
