Hugh Jackman: Baldwin gives Rise of the Guardians 'presence'

Nov 15 2012, 12:04am CST | by

Hugh Jackman believes Alec Baldwin gives 'Rise of the Guardians' ''great presence'' and he thinks Isla Fisher brings a ''beautiful humanity'' to the motion picture.

Hugh Jackman says Alec Baldwin gives 'Rise of the Guardians' ''great presence''.
The 44-year-old actor lends his voice to the role of E. Aster Bunnymund (Easter Bunny) in the forthcoming animation adventure movie with Alec Baldwin - who voices North (Santa Claus) - and Hugh believes their co-star Isla Fisher (Tooth Fairy) gives the motion picture a ''beautiful humanity''.
He said: ''We have many accents, it's like the most international voice cast you've ever heard in an animated movie. You have Alec Baldwin with his huge, deep voice and his big character, giving the film great presence. Then Isla Fisher has given it such beautiful humanity, she's very funny and she plays a very fast, manic character.
''I think Chris Pine is terrific as Jack Frost because he just feels very believable and relatable and human. I tried to throw in as many 'Aussie-isms' as I could. I tried to make him sound as unique as possible. I think as a group they all sound very different, and it melds together very well.''
While Hugh enjoys his co-stars' characters in the movie, he loves portraying the Easter Bunny because he is ''pretty badass'' and a cross between fictional action hero Indiana Jones and the late Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin.
He added to FlicksandBits.com: ''This Easter Bunny is the coolest character you've ever met, he's pretty badass. Think Indiana Jones with a touch of Steve Irwin. He protects nature, he's a brilliant martial artist and he's very strong. He can jump high, of course, and he has these two boomerangs on his hips, instead of six-shooters, which he uses to great effect.
''It was great that they allowed me to play him as this irascible Australian - tough, a little bit grumpy, and no-nonsense. He doesn't muck around. He's got a job to do and he's going to get it done, no matter what. That was certainly fun to play.''

Why Superhero Movies Need Better Villains

Sep 12 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: ign

It's often said that a hero is only as strong as his villains. What's the point of a superhero who doesn't have evil to battle against, after all? Would Batman be as memorable if it weren't for villains like Joker, Two-Face, and Catwoman? Would Wolverine still be the best there is without Sabretooth or Mystique or Lady Deathstrike pushing him to persevere? Comic fans will agree that supervillains are integral to th ...

Sep 8 2014 5:24pm CDT | Source: Collider

We were talking Real Steel 2 well before the first film even came out, but now, three years later, we’re still without that sequel.  However, that doesn’t mean director Shawn Levy isn’t thinking about it.  In fact, he said he’s been “quietly developing” it for years now. The first film starred Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up boxer who turns to robot boxing to make a living.  After his robot is destro ...

Sep 4 2014 1:53pm CDT | Source: Collider

With X-Men: Days of Future Past being both a hit and much better than most people expected, the gears are moving fast for X-Men: Apocalypse.  As the title and the post-credits stinger at the end of DOFP imply, the primary antagonist will be the supervillain Apocalypse.  The story will follow the First Class gang along with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine into the 1980s.  We also know from the treatment page teased last month that the Four Horseman will again be making an appearance. And now we mig ...
