Life in a Day

Life in a Day is an experimental documentary film produced by Ridley Scott (Gladiator) and directed by Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void). The film is experimental because it was made by 80,000 different individuals who filmed their entire day then submitted the footage via YouTube. This is an aggressive and interesting attempt by Macdonald and if he can manage to form one cohesive thought from all the muddled video chatter then he could be up for another Oscar.

Below is the official synopsis for Life in a Day:

Life in a Day is a historic global event to create the first user generated feature film documenting a single day on Earth.  It’s a unique time capsule that will tell future generations what it was like to be alive on the 24th of July 2010.  On that day, people around the world captured a moment of their lives on camera and over 80,000 videos were uploaded to YouTube.

Life in a Day will premier worldwide on YouTube and at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2011.

The Beaver

Actress/ director Jodi Foster (Contact) teamed up with her good friend Mel Gibson (Edge of Darkness) earlier this year to make a movie about a depressed middle-aged man who only communicates with the outside world through a beaver puppet on his hand. Appropriately enough, it is titled The Beaver.

As uproarious as the concept for The Beaver sounds, potential distributors have been reluctant to invest in Foster’s film because of Gibson’s recent run-ins with the law,  his inebriated racial tirades and accusations of domestic violence. Still, Summit Entertainment put together several images, including the one above, to help promote the film to distributors. Of course it didn’t take long before the Internet population took this innocent promotional photo and turned it into the latest meme on Gibson’s life – which our friends at Film Drunk have been so kind to post.

The Beaver is still gnawing on a release date.

Red State

The tag line for Kevin Smith’s (Cop Out) horror film Red State pretty much sums up this movie’s view on organized religion – “Fear God”. Smith wrote and directed this horror story about a group of young people who fall prey to extreme fundamentalism in Middle America.

Supposedly, Smith wrote Red State as a way to depict the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, whose members make headlines on an almost daily basis due to the way they express their extreme religious views.

Red State stars John Goodman (The Big Lewboski), Kyle Gallner (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Michael Angarano (The Forbidden Kingdom), Melissa Leo (The Fighter) and Michael Parks (Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2) as Pastor Abin Cooper.

Red State serves the Kool-aid sometime in 2011.

The film will be distributed by Oscilloscope Pictures and stars Per Christian Ellefsen, Tommi Korpela, Jorma Tommila and Peeter Jakobi as Santa. Watch the trailer for the movie below:

In case you couldn’t figure out what was going on from the trailer, here is the official synopsis for Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale:

On Christmas Eve in Finland, Santa Claus is unearthed in an archaeological dig. Soon after, children start disappearing, leading a boy and his father to capture Santa and, with the help of fellow hunters, they look to sell him back to the corporation that sponsored the dig. And then there’s Santa’s elves, who are determined to free their leader.

  1. The header image for this article is being used ironically right?

    • I was a little surprised to see that image, too. Always thought this site tried to be a bit more family oriented than that.

      • Kinda my thinking too.

    • I’m confused. The header image with the three posters…?

      Vic

      • The three posters, each with a giant letter on them… one an S, another an E and the final one an X.

        It’s a joke image that’s been circulating the internet for a while now (it’s probably real, just unfortunately placed and therefore funny in a juvenile sort of way), I’m guessing whoever decided to use it simply Google image searched “movie posters” or something and found this (a practice I personally wouldn’t suggest continuing, since it’s difficult to determine usage rights for images found using Google image search).

        • Holy cow. I *totally* missed that.

          Thanks,

          Vic

          • Wow! I honestly never saw that and tend to have a sometimes dirty mind. Geez guys my bad. Heck I just Googled “movie light boxes” or something similar trying to find a series of lightboxes together for this and one other movie poster round up I did last month. Not a soul mentioned it back then.

            Thanks for the heads up. I’ll modify it with something more appropriate today.

        • That’s exactly what I did Joshi but honestly never saw the word in the posters. Wasn’t in that frame of mind I suppose.

          Regarding using Google images…most of what is found is considered “fair use” under the copyright act but we take special care to give the appropriate credit for custom images, drawing or art. We have been known to remove images at the copyright holders request as well.

          • Well, as long as you’re compliant to the wishes of those whose images you use, I’m okay. There are some people out there who will use images indiscriminately without caring to seek pemission or crediting, which as an artist, I’m not a big fan of.

  2. Red State could be interesting, after the absolutely atrocious Cop Out, Kevin Smith needs a decent film and it sure seems different from anything he has done before. The poster is very effective.

    • Sam Beckett from Quantum Leap!!!!

      I’ve been vacillating for the longest time about that name and I finally relented and Googled it.

      • :)

  3. I saw the trailer for ‘Tangled’ on Toy Story 3 BD, and it looked like it would be fun. Although, it’s gonna flop with Harry Potter 7 coming out at the same time.

  4. You messed up on the Breaking dawn release date.

    You wrote.

    “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 sinks it’s fangs into theaters November 18th, 2010 while The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 won’t get to bite until November 16th, 2012.”

    Breaking dawn part one doesn’t come out till 2011

    • lol if that was the true date It would be competing with HP7!!! ;)

  5. Rare Exports and The Beaver FTW!!!

  6. hobo with a gun looks cool lol

  7. To everyone that pointed out the “hidden” message in our header, I have replaced it with a different one. Thanks again for the heads up.

  8. Harry Potter stinks you could put all the Potter fans on a normal size toothpick and there would be so much room left over.

    Twilight Forvever Baby!

    – Rose

    • I’m not sure I understand you… are you positing that Potter fans are incredibly small? I can assure you that is untrue, Potter fans are, by and large, of average height and weight for a given age.

      Or perhaps you are positing that there simply aren’t that many Potter fans around, in which case this is also factually false, there are a large number of them.

      Unless you are positing that of the +400 million Harry Potter books sold, all of them were bought by one very very small person… perhaps that’s what you’re positing?
