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.''

Neill Blomkamp's robot faces some serious oddsFirst came the poster, and as inevitably as night follows day here comes the trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie (which sounds a bit rude when phrased that way). Prepare yourselves for the most instantly sympathetic robot since Wall-E, and scenes of robot trauma that may upset younger viewers, or really anyone who loves their smartphone and feels good about their microwave. brightc ...

A Poster For Neill Blomkamp's CHAPPIE!!

Nov 3 2014 1:10pm CST | Source: aintitcool

Promotion for the March 2015 release is underway. Read the full article on AICN I’m a big fan of Neill Blomkamp’s work.  DISTRICT 9 spectacularly nailed what he was attempting to accomplish; ELYSIUM hit far from the mark but was interesting and occasionally arresting all the same.   As such, I’m very curious to see what he has in store for us with CHAPPIE, which opens March 6.   Here’s the first poster for the film, which stars Hugh ...

Quicksilver Is Back In ‘X-Men: Apocalypse;’ Could We See a Solo Movie?

Oct 22 2014 4:45pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Even people who didn’t like X-Men: Days of Future Past love the Quicksilver scene. As Charles, Logan and Hank sneak into the Pentagon to break out Erik, they employ the talents of a young speedy mutant named Quicksilver. He steals the movie with an incredible slow motion scene where he runs around a kitchen, under active sprinklers, completely changing the situation in order to help our heroes. You can watch a behind the scenes video about it here. As pre-production continues on that film’s seq ...

Chris Rock and Julia Louis-Dreyfus Turned Down the Offer to Host This Year’s Oscars

Oct 22 2014 3:49pm CDT | Source: Collider

It was announced last week that the excellent Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting this coming February's Oscar ceremony, but it turns out that NPH wasn’t the Academy’s first choice.  THR reports that producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron—who have produced the last two ceremonies in a row—first “begged” Ellen Degeneres to return as Oscar for this year’s ceremony.  She firmly declined the offer, and then they next approached Chris Rock, who hosted in 2005 ...
