First look at Shrek Forever After

According to USA Today, the once-upon-a-time spoofing that began with 2001’s Shrek will conclude when Shrek Forever After, the fourth computer-animated comic adventure starring the hygiene-challenged ogre — and the first in 3-D — arrives May 21. A trailer premieres Dec. 18 at showings of Avatar. The first photo from the movie, featuring Shrek and Rumpelstiltskin, can be seen above.

“All that was loved about Shrek in the first film is brought to the final film,” promises Bill Damaschke, head of creative production at DreamWorks. Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy and Cameron Diaz are back as the voices of Shrek, sidekick Donkey and ogress wife Fiona.

The premise is the Brothers Grimm meet It’s a Wonderful Life:

After rescuing a princess, getting hitched and fathering triplets, Shrek is feeling over-domesticated. “He has lost his roar,” says director Mike Mitchell. “It used to send villagers running away in terror. Now they run to him and ask him to sign their pitchforks and torches.” To regain his ogre mojo, he strikes a deal with Rumpelstiltskin, the wee troublemaker who popped up briefly in Shrek 2 and 3.

Though certain websites wrongly, and somewhat bizarrely, list Paul McCartney as the voice of the vile schemer, it is actually non-Beatle Walt Dohrn, the film’s head of story, who does the honors.

Of course, the pact goes awry and Shrek must confront what life would be like in Far Far Away if he had never existed. That translates into Donkey being forced into cart-pulling duty, fat and lazy Puss in Boots trading his sword for a pink bow and the underhanded Rumpelstiltskin ruling the kingdom.

No Shrek outing would be complete without new characters, and there are a bunch. Comedians Kathy Griffin and Kristin Schaal are witches who hunt ogres. On the side of good is an underground resistance group led by Jon Hamm of Mad Men. “He is the best-looking ogre you’ve ever seen,” Mitchell says.

Is this great news or what?!

Knight & Day suspended after injuries

Filming has been suspended on Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz’s new movie Knight And Day after two people were injured when seven bulls escaped the set onto the streets of Spain.

The animals, which were being used to recreate scenes from the country’s annual Pamplona bull run, fled onto the streets of Cadiz until they were recaptured approximately 40 minutes later. Two women were slightly hurt during the stampede, according to local police and officials, leading the mayor’s office to call off shooting until safety procedures are re-evaluated.

A spokesperson for the mayor of Cadiz says, “Nothing will be filmed in Cadiz until we have a new plan that guarantees the safety of local residents.” Producer Calle Cruzada insists he did not know how the bulls managed to escape.

But the incident will further the fears of an anti-bullfighting organisation, whose members have pleaded with Cruise and Diaz to pull out of the movie. Cas International released a statement last week (beg16Nov09), that read, “Apart from the fact that bulls are abused for this movie, we also fear that after seeing this movie, even more American and other tourists will participate in the bull runs in Pamplona and elsewhere in Spain.”

Cruise and Diaz were due to fly to Spain to start filming their scenes next weekend (28-29).

Box office report: The Box

As most of you know, The Box opened across the US on Friday. It was met by mixed reviews – some loved it, some hated it – and delivered $7.9 million at The Box office (see what I just did there?). I, myself, haven’t seen it yet (it isn’t released where I live quite yet) but I’m really excited to do so. To those of you who have seen it – Was it good? Was it bad? Express your opinion by leaving a comment!

Pictures from the premiere of the movie is coming up soon! Stay tuned.
