The Rock-itt : September 2010
The founders of Facebook are getting their own movie in the form of The Social Network, but as much as Facebook seems to be the trendy Internet app of the moment, Google has had far more impact on the lives of almost everyone who has ever used the Internet than Facebook ever will. So Google is getting a movie too. Groundswell Productions have purchased the rights to "Googled: The End of the World as We Know It". The book, written by Ken Auletta, tells the story of Google's rise to prominence. Mel Gibson made the character famous in the late 70's and early 80's, and next year director George Miller is bringing Mad Max back. The first pictures of the cars that will be used in Mad Max: Fury Road has been released, and although they aren't the greatest of quality, they leave enough to make the 4th film in the series just as anticipated as the previous 3. District 9 was a surprise hit last year, and the people who bought the Oscar nominated alien film to the big screen have now got their hands on the Judge Dredd re-make. Sylvester Stallone tried, and many said failed in 1995 with the character but now with Karl Urban from Star Trek and Lord of the Rings set the play 'The Law' there is much higher expectations from the newest version due to be released in early 2012. The film company with all the rights to the 'Terminator' series has called ahalttoanyplansofa5th installment, instead planning a big- budget animated 3D version. 'Terminator 3000' will have a 70 million dollar budget with the animation allowing the studio to grab a PG rating, therefore assuring they will collect more at the box office. Production will start in early 2011 with no release date scheduled. "What's up Doc"? Bugs Bunny is getting a live- action movie. This is big news but avid fans of the Warner Brothers favourite are skeptical with other famous cartoons that have been brought to life recently such as Garfield, The Smurfs, and Yogi Bear getting very poor reviews with the studio usually banking on the reputation of the character to get the people through the gates rather than the quality of the film. Joaquin Phoenix's crazy antics over the past 18 months are soon to be revealed with the poster of this wild mockumentry finally released. Directed by Casey Affleck, "I'm Still Here" follows Phoenix as he quits the acting business to enter the rap world. The film has gained worldwide buzz since Phoenix's famous appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" where he was incoherent, and even stuck gum on the set.
