Warner Bros. Reveals "Legend of the Guardians" Character Banners

Image
Warner Bros. has just shared the eye-popping character banners of its upcoming fantasy family adventure in 3D, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole . Directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300) the film based on the beloved Guardians of Ga’Hoole books by Kathryn Lasky . The individual banners feature the following characters: Soren (voice of Jim Sturgess ) -- A young male Barn Owl enthralled by his father’s epic stories of the Guardians of Ga’ Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. Soren was snatched by patrols from St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls.

George Clooney in “THE AMERICAN”

Image
Academy Award-winner George Clooney plays Jack, a weapons maker for professional assassins and a killer himself, who suddenly becomes the target, in Focus Features’ new thriller The American . Adapted from Martin Booth’s 1990 novel A Very Private Gentleman, the film will be shown soon exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas (Trinoma, Glorietta 4 & Greenbelt 3). In many ways, the character fits Clooney: smart, handsome, worldly. But the character is hardly the man, who in addition to being voted “sexiest man alive,” is a writer, director, producer and humanitarian. Indeed, as The American director Anton Corbijn says, Clooney is able to weave all of these identities together: “He’s a director’s favorite in terms of understanding what a director needs from an actor. He’s directed three films and so he knows that it’s very important to have an actor who’s on set. So George is never in the trailers. He’s on set and ready.”

With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra ( Olivia Wilde ), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe—a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at noth

Cats & Dogs 2: The Revenge of Kitty Galore Movie Review

Image
Before I saw Cats & Dogs 2: The Revenge of Kitty Galore on it's premiere at Greenbelt 3 at 11 in the morning, (yup! it's in the morning because they want more kids to be part of the this) they show 2 movie teasers first: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole & Yogi Bear . They also show a short 3D movie  featuring Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. Actually I enjoyed all those teasers but the Legend of the Guardian teasers took so long to me. It's not just a teaser, I think I already know the whole story. I'm not the only one who feels that because as they show the teasers of The Owls, the audience keep on standing as if they're not interested.

But Kludd’s jealousy has terrible consequences—causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls. Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find

Emerging as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors today, Justin Long (He’s Just Not That Into You) figures in a long-distance love affair with Drew Barrymore in New Line Cinema’s rowdy romantic comedy Going the Distance . In the film, when Erin (Barrymore) and Garrett (Long) hook up, their intentions are to have a few fun and frisky weeks before she heads back to grad school in San Francisco and he stays in New York City. But when Erin’s about to board a plane for home, they both realize they have developed deeper feelings for one another, and they don’t want whatever it is they have together to end. So, they decide to give the “long distance thing” a go. “I’d been reading a lot of romantic comedies,” Long recalls, “and this one really stood out for me in the sense that it was much more raw and realistic, and very funny, too. It didn’t hold back at all.”

Hollywood icon Bette Midler and Emmy-nominee Christina Applegate breathe life to the lead kittens in Warner Bros.’ new comedy adventure in 3D, “ Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore .” In the film, what’s going on is nothing less than the endless war between two species at odds since their earliest ancestors sought out the first caveman’s campfire.

Determined to not only break the bond between dogs and humans forever but also pit feline against feline, Kitty’s bid for global domination could jeopardize the future of all creatures, four- and two-legged alike.
