Rachel Weisz

What is Movie News at Sunrise? Due to some site maintenance late last night, Movie News After Dark could not be completed before it was my bed time. So I’m up early to bring you its cousin, Movie News At Sunrise. This slightly less witty, marginally more tired column should serve as the perfect pinch-hitter just in time for your morning commute. Powered by a Chick-fil-a breakfast sandwich and a hope that spelling errors will be kept to a minimum at this ungodly hour, I am here to bring you the news. Director Sam Raimi has cast Rachel Weisz as an evil witch in Oz: The Great and Powerful. She will star opposite James Franco and alongside Mila Kunis. They will play Evanora and Theodora, respectively. Weisz’s Evanora, however, becomes the Wicked Witch of the East. Sadly, we all know how things work out for her. For Raimi, the remaining major character to be cast is Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. Olivia Wilde, Amy Adams, Kate Beckinsale, Keira Knightley and Rebecca Hall are said to be on the shortlist. Hall sounds like an awesome choice, to me.

Rachel Weisz in Agora

It’s possible to admire the grand, sweeping ambitions poured into the production of Agora without having much use for the movie itself. Alejandro Amenábar delves into a milieu — 4th century Alexandria — that’s rarely, if ever, been depicted on film. Therein, he constructs a narrative centered not on the standard ancient conceits of big battles and grand speeches about liberty, but the struggle to comprehend mankind’s place in the cosmos.

Things are rolling for Bond 23. Daniel Craig is still in the role of James Bond, director Sam Mendes has come aboard to lead the next installment, and assuming MGM doesn’t implode financially, the movie may actually get made. Time to move on to the nitty-gritty details of story and setting, and our most beloved part of the pre-production process: casting rumors.

I typically save the boiling points for Robert Fure, aiming instead to frame my column as an observation of media rather than a critique, analyzing trends and their meaning in the context of film and television as an intersecting object of commerce and art. But there is something that has been getting under my skin in some films released in the past several months, and it’s the way that Hollywood deals with the subject infidelity.

As I’ve explained in the past, I am more than excited about director Rian Johnson’s sophomore effort The Brothers Bloom. And oddly enough, the fact that Summit Entertainment is moving the film from early January to a May release is a cause for optimism rather than disappointment.
