Just love Grayson's big smile as Julia in today's scene.

I think it is the one time in the movie that Julia actually looks happy for a moment.

That's too bad, Amanda.

Thanks for sharing the info with us.

Best, Steve

It just hit me how weird it is that the first test screening is happening and there's NO mock-up poster on the Facebook announcement linked above.

I can understand (sort of) the delay in releasing the trailer, but why be so fussy about the poster? 

You would think they would at least have the standard DS logo bannering across the silhouette of Collinwood... how hard can this be??

Anyway, apologies for flogging a dead horse...

Fans, I found this the other day and thought it was a really excellent compilation--mostly Barnabas scenes from DS, but at the end there are a couple of scenes from Seizure (Frid's film with Oliver Stone):

The total clip runs around fourteen minutes.

Did you guys read the dialogue transcription from the long trailer seen by the Ross person?

There was no doubt in my mind that that was intended to be a trailer for a product in the "horror comedy" category.

Elsewhere I said that the dialogue read like the work of one of Sasha Baron Cohen's staff writers.

cheers, G.

2436
Amanda, if this means you are going to the screening, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Perhaps there can be an appropriately tagged thread for reviews of preview screenings (and, eventually, regular screenings).  You could be the first person here to review the completed film.

One reason why I'd like to read whatever you have the energy and interest to set down is the possibility of last minute edits based upon the response to the screening you attend and others like it.

Thanks, Steve

Darren, when the films finally see the disc release, I wish those of us who have been following this saga since the days of your classic Video Watchdog review essays could throw a very special party for you.  You deserve it!

cheers, Steve

2438
That's funny.  I have started thinking about BarnaDepp as BarnaScissors, short for Barnabas Scissorhands.

It's the dresden-doll clown makeup...

I wonder whether there will be protests from Native American groups over Depp's garish Tonto makeup?  Looks like something Siouxie (of the Banshees) would have worn to a concert circa 1979.

Great photos.  I love the art direction.  Now if only the screenplay proves to be up to par.

That site address is obviously located in Brazil, and as MB said, release dates in other parts of the world are likely to be later than the US.  But who knows.

Following the progress of this project has really been like some sort of interactive detective story.  Miss Marple, anyone?

I love the crazy Monkees Monster Mash episode where a Dracula-like Count and his insidious daughter (Davy's girlfriend!) transform the boys into a vampire, a werewolf and a mummy, if I'm remembering correctly.  It was all pretty kooky.

My personal favorite Davy Jones moment, ever, was the film of him riding a horse while a recording of "I wanna be free" played, on the first season of The Monkees. It seems ironic that he died while he was with his horses, which he said to have adored. 

Rest in peace, Davy.

That's a very odd shot of Helena as Julia... thanks for that link.  I wonder if this is supposed to be the morning after the costume ball.  I assume there is some kind of ball or costume party because of the previous photo with BarnaDepp and Liz both wearing Tim Burtonesque versions of 18th century clothing. Perhaps it will be a different scene from the one with the original cast members and Alicia Cooper.

Julia looks propped-up drunk here, and her hair is falling...

The Spoiler button seems to have disappeared again... I had a spoilery speculation about the new Vanity Fair photo of Julia, but it will have to wait (or perhaps be posted in the spoilers thread even though it's just my own perverted speculation) until the Spoiler button reappears...

cheers, G.

2442
Yeah.  Don't forget that some of the squiddlies, seahorses, cthuloids, etc. come to life periodically through the magic of CGI.

I was afraid that the Burton/Depp version of Collinwood was going to be a baroque nightmare of cluttered claustrophic horror-vacui, but so far I like most of what I'm seeing.

G.

2443
Wow.  Those sites aren't crediting that the scans came from KLS' book?

People really are beyond me...

G.

2444
Maybe I'm wrong, but I really doubt that KLS will lose a "huge chunk" of sales because of those scans being posted on the Web/s.  If anything, I would think the scans will make more people aware of and curious about the book than would ever have heard of it otherwise.

In this day and age, having content on the Web doesn't keep consumers from buying your product.  She should view it as part of getting the book promoted.  Lots of people browse books in bookshops without ever going to the cash register and making a purchase.  Having a couple of images available online is really no different than having copies of the book out on a table for customers to examine.  OK, so in an extreme case an individual may print that photo out and put it in their personal scrapbook (or more likely add it to an online file of DS memorabilia), but I bet that the person who would do that would also want a copy of the physical book for their collection.  Particularly if they're a DS fan in the first place, as we're being told there are so many new photos from the golden days published in this volume.

Just my take on it.  Of course I do feel sorry for her anguish, but I think in some ways she is out of touch with how the Internet works vis-a-vis commerce.

G.

2445
Thanks Darren!  I'm much more interested in good photos of folk such as Thayer David, Grayson Hall, and Clarice Blackburn than I am in production stills from the new movie.  After all, from what I understand, there will be an entire book devoted to the Burton-Depp movie's production history, and I'm sure that the illos will be lavish.
