The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The Reject Report

Audiences got derezzed, went into the grid, and disc warred all the way to end of line this weekend. And, if you followed all of that, you were probably among the masses. While TRON Legacy jumped to the top of the pile, its weekend take wasn’t up to expectations, and the future of the franchise could very well be called into question. It just depends on the legs the film has, Olive Wilde’s legs notwithstanding.

The Reject Report

The weather has turned cold, the end of the year is soon approaching, and the last bastion of Holiday films are coming our way. This week, we have a number of dollar-earner pictures hitting as well as a couple of heavy awards contendors expanding into wide release. The light cycles are sure to have an edge over a couple of talking bears, especially since one of those bears sounds a bit like Ray Stantz. The other bear isn’t exactly bringing sexy back, but he might be cute enough to pull in some decent money.

The Week That Was

Another week has come and gone and I still don’t have a good opening line for this column. It’s about the articles, people. Not my commentary about the articles of the week. This little guy — aptly titled The Week That Was — is all about my personal favorites from the last seven days. The best that Film School Rejects has to offer, and whatnot. As you may have figured by now, I don’t have much to say this week. Thus all of the repetitive filler and jargon. So lets dive right into the articles you missed while you were out doing things that don’t have anything to do with reading FSR…

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr heads to the movie theater to enjoy the holiday releases and the award films. But how do they stack up against each other. After being swept into Narnia in post-converted 3D, Kevin takes a trip to Venice where he watches a portly Johnny Depp play an everyman to Angelina Jolie walking around a lot. Finally, he takes another award season trip to Boston to watch Mark Wahlberg get punch drunk..

I write this with all due respect to director Michael Apted, his actors, the rest of his creative team and even C.S. Lewis himself. But, really, is there anyone out there who actually cares about these Narnia movies? Was there a big clamoring for this second sequel? Would anyone’s world end if the last four books remained where they’ve probably always belonged – on bookshelves? There must be a devoted audience somewhere, as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian raked in some serious box office cash. Surely, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will surpass Tangled and the infinitely superior latest Harry Potter to own the weekend, giving Fox and Walden Media sufficient cause to dial up the next one.

Another week, another fun for the whole family flick that entertains as well as allows you to dissect the nature of humanity amidst the tribulations of life. And that’s the one starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. The other one is the third in the Chronicles of Narnia saga, and it’s got an awesome, CGed lion the roars with Liam Neeson’s voice. We think it might have the edge this weekend. You just don’t say no to Qui-Gon Jinn.

We realize that you’re probably sitting at home right now, chewing your own nails off and wondering what movies are coming out this month. Maybe you’re even wondering why no one on the entire internet has said anything about them. Strange, we know. Fortunately, Rob Hunter and Cole Abaius spent the entire month of November dumpster diving in studio lots, mailing in proof of purchase codes on cereal boxes, and building trailers from old plywood to make sure that you, dear reader, are in the know about what’s coming out in December. You watch movies, so this guide’s for you.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader

20th Century Fox has picked up The Chronicles of Narnia where Disney left it, floundering, and have delivered a second trailer for film three, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader for all to see. Fans of the C.S. Lewis classic will surely come out in support, but as we learned with the previous film, Prince Caspian, it isn’t quite enough to bring the franchise back to its box office powerhouse status. It was enough to see Disney set the franchise and Walden Media afloat before they were picked up by Fox. And even though all of the behind the scenes hullabaloo has left Narnia feeling like a ship that’s sailed, there are a few nice visual treats in this trailer. Perhaps this is just the sort of movie to bring this franchise back to life. Check it out for yourself after the jump.

DawnTreader

After two films, I have just about no energy or excitement for this franchise because of how forced everything felt. In the first movie when they charged and yelled that they were doing it for Aslan, I yawned and waited for the credits. The second was a bit better, and since the third is set on a boat, I have to assume that the inclusion of nautical themed knit afghans. It’s a recession. You think we can afford pashmina? Well we can’t. But we can afford to check out these pictures from the set of The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader. You can click on those for a slightly bigger version, or head over to Coming Soon for the giant versions. I have to admit that the production design looks beautiful. I haven’t read the books so I have no reference point, but it seems as though the story gets going when two of the young children and their cousin get sucked into a painting of a ship, so it’s back to Narnia for them once again. Which is frustrating, because they keep going back, and great because Britain is really dull and rainy. I’m also not sure that the novel includes the older siblings in any real way, but someone can correct me there if I’m wrong. If I’m not, it looks like the franchise will be including them anyway because, hey, why not? On a personal note, I have a helm just like that here […]
