   Oldman attends WonderCon 20140 Comments

We Are Movie Geeks is reporting that Gary Oldman attended the WonderCon 2014 in Anaheim to discuss his upcoming movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Oldman mentions his first memories towards the franchise.


Accio Quote:
“Really, you look back and I can’t imagine a sort of childhood without [The Original> PLANET [OF THE APES>. I was nine – ten when the first one came out. It’s not only the opportunity to work with these good people, you’re also being asked to be part of cinema history. So, that was above and beyond the story. You’re involved with something, for the most part, that comes with a very good pedigree. I mean, it went a little wobbly for a while but we’re back on track. [Laughs>"


The movie is scheduled for a release on July 11, 2014.

   Cuaron discusses 3D filming0 Comments

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Alfonso Cuaron discussed the future of 3D filming during his recent attendance at the Beijing Film Festival.


Accio Quote:
I love 3D, but I think that a film has to be conceived as a 3D film. The big majority of the films that you see in 3D in the West are commercial afterthoughts and are absolutely dreadful.

They don’t deliver a good 3D experience — they just make the whole experience of watching a movie really tiresome. I enjoy when 3D is done in an organic way. 3D as a tool is to be used when it’s needed, not all the time.

   Fry and Radcliffe reveal poems that make them cry0 Comments

The Daily Mail is reporting that one hundred famous male celebrities have revealed poems that bring them to tears.

The selection of poems will create the anthology entitled Poems That Make Grown Men Cry.


Accio Quote:
For Harry Potter star Mr Radcliffe, modern poet Tony Harrison can reliably bring a lump to his throat with a touching portrait of a widower clinging to the memory of his dead wife.

His contribution to the collection is a pair of poems, Long Distance I and Long Distance II, published in 1978. The verses, written from the perspective of the grieving man’s son, tells how the older man keeps hoping that his wife will return at any moment, and keeps the house ready for when she does.
