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.''

Chappie’s Family Revealed In Window Cling For Neill Blomkamp’s Latest [Comic Con 2014]

Jul 28 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

After two movies filled with massive sci-fi action, it seems Neill Blomkamp is going a bit more emotional for his latest film. Sony very quietly kicked off the marketing campaign for Chappie at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, with a big banner and a window cling handed to fans as they walked by the booth. Most fans were confused by the swag, which shows a rudimentary drawing of two parents, one holding a gun, alongside a robot. But it’s an incredibly intriguing image for t ...

Meet Chappie in the First Poster For Neill Blomkamp's Action Comedy

Jul 24 2014 7:26am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Neill Blomkamp quickly established himself as the go-to-guy for gritty, realistic science fiction. District 9 was certainly an impressive debut effort from the South African director, while Elysium, although less well received, only bolstered his science fiction credentials.However, his next project, Chappie looks like it might do things slightly differently. Described as an action-comedy-drama, Chappie tells the story of a robot which is 'kidnapped' into a loving, doting family. From ...

Jul 22 2014 9:55pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Neill Blomkamp‘s next film, Chappie, doesn’t have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, but if this year is proving anything, it’s that panels aren’t the only way to raise awareness for a project. Sometimes something as simple as an evocative poster will do the trick. That’s exactly what Sony used in the case of Chappie, which stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley. Check out the first Chappie poster below. Thanks to Collider for these images. The poster/banner ...

Kevin Feige Teases Possible Avengers / Guardians of the Galaxy Crossover

Jul 21 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: slash film

Guardians of the Galaxy takes place literally worlds away from The Avengers, and yet both superhero teams occupy the same universe at the same time and even know some of the same people. It wouldn’t be totally inconceivable for them to cross paths at some point, and recent comments from Kevin Feige suggest they may do just that. If you’re holding out hope for the either group to join forces with the X-Men, howeve ...

Jul 11 2014 9:58am CDT | Source: Deadline

The Union Jack will be flying over Broadway big-time this coming season, as talk heats up about bringing Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and the acclaimed National Theatre revival of David Hare’s Skylight to New York in the spring. I wrote a few weeks ago that while the production will be telecast in the fall by NT Live, far better would be the chance to see Hare’s extraordinarily moving play — about the ...

Will Rogue fans see her scenes restored?Though X-Men: Days Of Future Past has been a big success, one group of mutant fans were unhappy with how their favourite character appeared in the film. Which is to say: briefly. Now it appears those who wanted to see more of Anna Paquin’s power-siphoning Rogue may just get their wish, because producer Lauren Shuler Donner answered a question about a director’s cut on ...
