Ratatouille Trailer

Here’s your first peak at the first real Ratatouille trailer. The trailer is in English with (what I think is) Chinese subtitles. It’s no secret around here that I think Pixar is a company that can just do now wrong (at least they haven’t made a mistake yet). Without exception I’ve loved every single one of their films… and I expect that Ratatouille will be no exception. For those of you who may not know much about Ratatouille, here’s a quick synopsis: In the new animated-adventure, RATATOUILLE, a rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely – and certainly unwanted – visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down. Remy finds himself torn between his calling and passion in life or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. He learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is, a rat who wants to be a chef. Directed by Academy Award -winning Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”) and co-directed by Academy Award -winning Jan Pinkava (“Geri’s Game”), RATATOUILLE is slated for release on June 29, 2007. This will be Brad Bird’s first project since the mind blowingly fantastic “The incredibles”, and I’m anxious to see what he can do. To see the Ratatouille trailer you can just go here.

SHAZAM! Gyllenhaal as Captian Marvel?

Right after I posted about the Captain Marvel movie actually getting a writer, we now get news that they are hoping to cast Jake Gyllenhaal ComicBook Movie says:This is New Line’s bid for a franchise on the order of Batman and Superman. “They’re ready to spend up to $200 million to get it started,” one source told the columnists. The columnists also reported that director Peter Segal and his fellow producers want to nab Gyllenhaal before Spider-Man director Sam Raimi does.This is interesting news on two levels. First lets deal with the Captain Marvel side. Jake is one buff kid. Don’t get me wrong. But really as Captain Marvel, shouldn’t there be a bigger beefier guy for this role? I just dont see Jake looking the part with the little cape and lightning bolt. Sure, a lot of people said the same thing about Routh, and I thought he made a perfect Superman. Next, lets look at the backside of this story. They want to sign him to Shazam before Raimi gets him for Spiderman. Stop the presses. Do these guys know something we don’t? Its been rumoured already that Gyllenhaal might replace Tobey Maguire as Spiderman and this adds fuel to that rumour. I am not thrilled with that, but at the same time I have no other ideas for Tobey’s replacement (Jake is too buff and not geeky enough to be Spiderman) So there it is. Too buff to be one, not buff enough to be the other. Which would you think is better? If tJake does get Captain Marvel, I hope we get to see a moment where Captain Marvel goes up to Batman and says “YOU TRIED TO SLEEP WITH MY SISTER???” .. but we know that won’t happen. Maybe a DVD gag reel.
