When The Tree of Life released in a handful of Indian theatres a month ago, film enthusiasts were rejoicing. They were finally getting a chance to watch, on the big screen, a film by Terrence Malick, who had made such gems as Badlands, The Thin Red Line and The New World. It had won the Palme d’Or, the highest award at the Cannes film fest, just a few months ago. That Brad Pitt top-lined the cast was just a small bonus.

But while Malick fanboys-and-girls lapped up the arthouse film, which dealt with evolution and death, the audience at theatres screening the film was sparse. And most of those who did turn up went away disappointed that it was “not like other Brad Pitt films.”

If you’re expecting a turnaround in this story, there isn’t any. The film ran to pretty much empty houses for about three weeks, before being pulled out. “We kept it running for that long, hoping that more people would come in. Such films are an acquired taste, and need time to grow on audiences,” says Deepak Sharma, head of distribution at PVR Pictures. His company has been releasing non-studio Hollywood films in India for a few years now, such as Biutiful, Warrior and Drive recently. Non-studio films are those produced outside Hollywood’s Big 4 studios — Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Fox and Walt Disney, which have Indian branches to release their films.

Sharma says that almost all the niche films are losing propositions at the box office, many having to be discontinued after a week’s run. “Drive got four or five stars by most reviewers, but that didn’t translate into numbers. That it was a film by the award-winning Nicolas Winding Refn, and starred the noted talent Ryan Gosling, didn’t seem to matter either,” says Sharma at his Andheri office in Mumbai. Nevertheless, PVR is busily chalking out plans for their next Hollywood release, The Three Musketeers.

So how does it make business sense to release these films in India, given that there are few takers for them at present? Sharma says he has a five-year timeframe in mind for it to pay off. “The English-speaking population in the country is on the rise, and with people logging onto the Internet even in small towns now, the hunger for concept-driven films will only grow. Eventually, we will have to look at international films to satisfy this hunger,” he says, pointing out that currently Hollywood films constitute only 8% of the film market in India, and this is bound to go up considerably in the next few years.

That’s when Sharma feels PVR’s experience will stand them in good stead in relation to the competition that will try to hop on to the bandwagon. “We already have a good ten years of releasing such films and there are a number of things, like identifying the right films, costing, marketing etc, which we have got better at since we started. Others will have to start from scratch.”

Judging by the script
A few others have already started getting into the act. Ram Punjabi, who has been living in Indonesia and distributing Hollywood and Bollywood films there for the last 30 years, started Multivision Multimedia Pvt Ltd in Mumbai in 2007. The idea, says Hiren Gosar, who handles distribution at Multimedia, was to pick the best of the non-studio films. This typically meant scouting for films produced by the likes of Lionsgate, Summit Entertainment, and New Image, which are renowned production houses working outside Hollywood’s big studios.

When Multivision picked The Hurt Locker for distribution in the Indian sub-continent before it went into production, it had no clue it would go on to win the Best Film Oscar a year later. “The films mostly get picked at international festivals like Cannes, Hong Kong etc. You pick them on the strength of their scripts,” says Gosar. “Once you develop a rapport with the production house, they may start sending across scripts of their upcoming films and also give you preference over other distributors.”

A strong script sense is vital to pick the right films, and Suniel Wadhwa, who started 52 Weeks Entertainment Inc, feels he has that. Among the ‘scripts’ Wadhwa picked last year was Source Code, a moderately budgeted film which did decent business.

“Also, the Hindi version (dubbing a film in a regional language costs roughly Rs7-8 lakh, but the returns from small centres are good) titled Kaalchakra did well. I attached the tag line — ‘Har ghadi maut khadi’, which communicated the plot of the film well.

Indian audiences want to watch new concepts, which they don’t always get from Hindi films. The idea is to also make these films accessible to them in a language they can understand.”

For Wadhwa, picking a film that is commercially viable is important. His next release is a disaster film, The Impossible, which he describes as a Titanic-meets-2012.

Investing in the future
Time was when watching a non-studio film on the big screen was a rarity in India. You may have heard of Quentin Tarantino then, but you had to look for VHS cassettes, and later CDs of his films like The Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. A couple of years ago, however, his Inglourious Basterds got a wide Indian release.

Deepak Sadarangani, senior film journalist, says that after living on a staple diet of indie films in the US for more than eight years, he found it difficult to find his fill of such films when he returned to India in 2001. But things started to change. “It was around 2003-04 when these films began to release. The number has steadily grown since, thanks to the fact that the multiplexes need more and more films to keep business going. But it’s just a fragment of the films available out there,” says Sadarangani, adding that he is optimistic about the future.

PVR for one is certainly in it for the long haul. Currently, they release roughly 30 to 40 Hollywood films in a year, some of them popular franchises like Twilight which do well at the box office and nullify the losses they make on their more avant garde films.

Multimedia has a similar outlook. “Out of the 12-odd films we release every year, only 3-4 make money. But we are in it for the long run. There will come a time when most of these films will find an audience in India. We want to use the time till then to create a strong brand,” says Gosar.

In our latest chat with Johnny Depp, he revealed that an area in his Caribbean island was named after the late actor, Heath Ledger. We also talked about “The Rum Diary,” a film adaptation of the debut novel of another late friend of Johnny’s, Hunter S. Thompson.

Johnny found the manuscript of the unpublished novel while he was visiting Hunter, who is known as the creator of gonzo journalism. It took many years for the actor to bring Hunter’s novel to the big screen. It was inspired by the journalist’s experiences in Puerto Rico in the 1960s. Hunter shot and killed himself in 2005. Excerpts of our interview with Johnny:

Who from your acting family have visited your island?

Not many. After Heath Ledger passed into eternity, I thought that his family could use a bit of time away from the madness. There’s a place in the island that we’ve named after Heath.

Who else? Tim (Burton) has been down there a couple of times. We deciphered what “Alice in Wonderland” was going to be while we were sitting on a sand bar in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Does Johnny Depp have it all, as your “The Rum Diary” costar, Aaron Eckhart, said?

When you have two beautiful kids who are happy and healthy, on the right path and totally together, that in itself means you have it all. When you have a woman like Vanessa, and are able to do the things you want to do, you have it all. I couldn’t wish for more.

What do you attribute it all to?

It really boils down to just being incredibly lucky. I look at my kids and see Lily Rose at 12, my boy, Jack, at 9 and look over at Vanessa and realize that it’s almost 14 years that we’ve been together. It’s always beautiful, symmetrical and asymmetrical, poetic and funny.

Personally, how does it feel to have “The Rum Diary” finally finished?

It all started in Hunter’s basement, unearthing that manuscript. After all these years, there’s an amazing sense of accomplishment. I think he would have been very happy.


Can you talk about the fireworks farewell for Hunter?

Hunter designed his last wish in the 1970s. He wanted to be shot out of a cannon on his property. I think Hunter knew that I was probably the only one stupid enough to go through with it. It was a wonderful send-off, and it was exactly as he planned it, note for note.

How would you want your own farewell to be?

Just drop me in a vat of whiskey or something. Everybody can drink from it.

Can you describe the first time you met Hunter?

I went with my family and friends to Aspen, Colorado in December 1994. I ran into a guy whom I knew, and he said, “Would you like to meet Hunter?” I said, “Of course, just let me know.” He said, “Okay, 12:30 at the Woody Creek Tavern.”

At about one in the morning, the front doors burst open at the tavern. All I see are sparks. Then, I see people leaping out of the way, diving for cover. There was Hunter with a cattle prod and a Taser gun in his hand. He walked right up to me and stuck out his hand. He said, “How do you do? My name is Hunter.” I said, “Hi, I’m Johnny. Sit down.”


We sat and talked. Then, it was just instant connection. He invited me to his house that night. I made a comment about a beautiful nickel-plated 12-gauge shotgun that he had on the wall. He asked, “Would you like to fire it?” I said, “Sure.” It was about 2:30 in the morning. He said, “If you want to fire it, let’s build a couple of bombs.” So, we took propane tanks.

We built the bombs and went out in the backyard. I had the first crack at it, and I nailed it! It was an 80-feet fireball at three in the morning. I believe that was the moment when I passed the test.

What is your connection to Hunter’s world and his words?

I must have been 17 when I read Hunter’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” I thought that he had a unique voice. Then, I read all of his other books. What I loved about Hunter was his honesty.

I adored him as a big brother/best friend/mentor. It hasn’t stopped. I still have him.


I have been seduced by dough. For me, the seduction started with “Jump Street” in 1986. People started offering me movies where you kiss the girl, carry a gun, get in a fight, and things blow up. I figured, if I had taken the fast cars, money and all that stuff, it would have been over in a few years, because I’d just be like everybody else.

I thought, why not be patient? I swore I would only do what I felt was right for me! —Somehow, I’m still here.

Hollywood actress Milla Jovovich was so impressed with Aishwarya Rai's sword fight in 2008 blockbuster " Jodhaa Akbar" that she tried to be like her in her new movie "The Three Musketeers".

"Well I watched 'Jodhaa Akbar' and I must say that I was simply taken away by the action scenes in the movie done by gorgeous lady Aishwarya Rai," Jovovich said.

"She was simply breathtaking in the movie and did justice to the character. For my movie ('The Three Musketeers'), I just wanted to be like her and thrill my audiences with bravery, action and adventure in the movie," she added.

In the film, Jovich plays Milady de Winter and has done quite a few action scenes.

The film, which released Friday, talks about Porthos, Athos and Aramis who served the king of France as his best musketeers. After discovering an evil conspiracy to overthrow the king, the musketeers come across a young, aspiring hero, D'Artagnan, and take him under their wing. Together, the four embark on a mission to bust the plot that not only threatens the crown, but the future of Europe itself.

A Summit studio official and Stephenie Meyer met with Mark Waters and Gus Van Sant to discuss the possibility of directing.

Sofia Coppola was very interested in directing this project, but she was only willing to direct one part of 'Breaking Dawn', which Summit wanted to split in two parts.

Carter Burwell, composer for _'Twilight (2008)'_, returned to the franchise to score this movie and _'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012)'_ as Burwell had worked with director Bill Condon before.

According to Bella and Edward's wedding invitations, the address of the Cullen residence is listed as 420 Woodcroft Ave Forks, WA.

He's been a pirate and an elf prince, but now Orlando Bloom is stepping away from the swords and leaving the swashbuckling to others in "The Three Musketeers in 3D."

After playing the good guy in both the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "The Lord of the Rings" film series, the British actor is getting in touch with his nastier side for the latest big screen adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' historical novel.

He plays the cunning Duke of Buckingham, an English nobleman who likes to stir things up at the French court of King Louis.

This time, Bloom was pleased to let his co-stars — Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans playing Athos, Porthos and Aramis — take the glory.

"They're like the superheroes of their time and they get all the cool stuff and I get to totter around on a pair of heels, but it was exactly what I wanted to do," said Bloom.

Bloom is married to Miranda Kerr, has an 8-month-old son Flynn and claims his family is bit like the three Musketeers, whose motto is "one for all and all for one."

Paul W.S. Anderson's movie "The Three Musketeers in 3D" opens in the U.K. on Wednesday.

The Associated Press sat down with a cleanly shaven Bloom to find out how much fun he had being bad.

AP: What did you enjoy most about being the Duke of Buckingham?

Bloom: The hair, a bit of (mus)'tache twizzling, the high heels and the bloomers. The whole nine yards.

AP: Not the lines as well?

Bloom: Yeah I had a couple of dastardly lines. It was quite fun.

AP: Did you really enjoy being kind of bad?

Bloom: Kind of bad is a good way of putting it. He's a bit of a bad boy. He's a rake, he's a rogue isn't he? He's a cad. And that was a lot of fun. ... this was just a romp. Stick your tongue in your cheek and go big or go home.

AP: How do you feel about watching yourself in 3D?

Bloom: I'm wondering if the pompadour quiff is going to take anyone's eye out. I thought it was a bit of a secret weapon, I should have had a sword in there.

AP: Is this the type of film you'd want to take your son to see?

Bloom: Yes, I think so. I mean he's eight months, so not yet perhaps. I'm not sure he'd appreciate it but he might — he'd marvel at the explosions and stuff.

AP: If you could form your own Musketeers ... who would you pick?

Bloom: There's a couple of my mates, since I was like 11 or 12, we were always called The Musketeers - Mark, Gibbo and Gibbo. We are the Musketeers, see. But I've also got a family now, that's a bit like The Three Musketeers.

DRIVE – The Review

Nicolas Winding Refn’s DRIVE is simply perfect. Not since Michael Mann’s 1981 crime drama THIEF, has a film of this type had such an impact, and dare I say DRIVE is even better? Yes, I do. Every woman’s newest sweetheart, Ryan Gosling (CRAZY STUPID LOVE) is Driver, a nameless Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver. He lives simply, adhering to a strict set of rules, which keeps him at the top of his game, out of prison… and alive. On the surface, he’s a pretty boy with a quiet disposition, but hidden within is a strong, efficient survivor with the capacity to be brutal when necessary.

Working as a mechanic for Shannon, played by Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, the two men hold a partnership that handles the criminal side jobs. When Shannon approaches former motion picture producer turned organized crime boss Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks) about a loan to get his driver behind the wheel of a stock car to race professionally, it marks the beginning of a downward spiral for both men. Shortly thereafter, the driver meets Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her son Benicio (Kaden Leos). This is the moment everything changes for the driver.

DRIVE is adapted from James Sallis’ book by Hossein Amini (THE FOUR FEATHERS, KILLSHOT) and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, a young auteur whose previous films (BRANSON, VALHALLA RISING) have cemented him on my radar of filmmakers to watch like a hawk. The story takes place in the ‘90s, an era not generally known for any memorable, defining nostalgia. Despite this, Refn somehow creates his own nostalgia in which to place the driver, a loner but likable anti-hero. Sporting a pearling white windbreaker with a golden scorpion embroidered on the back, the driver walks with a subtle, unassuming confidence, seemingly invisible to the public eye.

This apparent invisibility is not a chance occurrence. Whatever his training, whatever his life experience up to now, the driver is clearly in control of every aspect of his life, until he meets Irene. Falling almost instantly for her, and bonding as quickly to her son Benicio, the driver takes on a role of responsibility for them. This becomes undeniably crucial when Irene’s past returns to throw everything in jeopardy. Jeopardy is another name for two men; Bernie Rose and Nino, played by veteran character actor Ron Perlman (HELLBOY). One of my personal favorites, Perlman delivers precisely the level of creepy charisma I’ve come to expect, and it works marvelously.

The truly astounding performance in DRIVE however, is Albert Brooks (THE MUSE, DEFENDING YOUR LIFE). Refn has managed to work with Brooks to take every ounce of what makes him such a unique comical character and flips him, fully converted to the dark side. Intelligent, witty and sharp-tongued, Brooks finds that elusive something that equates to a memorably unnerving villain, a bad guy the audience has difficulty disliking. Hands down, Brooks delivers one of the best performances from any supporting actor of 2011.

Ryan Gosling, an actor on the fast lane to greatness, has given audiences stellar work in HALF-NELSON, LARS AND THE REAL GIRL, and BLUE VALENTINE. Unfortunately, he’s probably best known for the lesser quality films he’s done, but has still managed to stand out as the beacon amidst foggier films. Gosling’s performance is quiet, solemn and meticulously paced, much like the film itself. DRIVE is a slowly building roller coaster of tension, the type that takes 90% of its time gradually ratcheting the audience up to the tip top of the incline, before finally letting loose for the final 10% sending the audience into a sudden free-fall, landing firmly within a cushion of existential epiphany.

Carey Mulligan (AN EDUCATION, NEVER LET ME GO) is almost too cute and adorable to imagine in such a film, has offered audiences far more defining performances. For the role of Irene, she succeeds at being a means to an end for the driver’s character development, remaining just within his shadow, but giving us more than enough reason to believe she is the catalyst for the driver’s shift in purpose. In the first act of DRIVE, Gosling and Mulligan build a fascinating chemistry with barely enough dialogue to fill a single page of script.

This silence is a multifaceted thematic element that runs throughout the film. The atmospheric score from Cliff Martinez (THE LINCOLN LAWYER, CONTAGION) is alluring and gentle, but with an edge, occasionally rising to the surface just enough to grab the viewer by the throat as if to squeeze gently, reminding us of the pending danger the driver willing chooses to face head on for the sake of a woman he barely knows. Newton Thomas Sigel provides the cinematography, but is clearly channeling Refn’s visual flair. DRIVE is filled with softly contoured contrast and deep, saturated color woven seamlessly into the shadows to the point of being a subconscious afterthought.

The palette of DRIVE is not unlike that of BRONSON, but inverted from the hyper-intense into more of an ultra-mellow version of itself. More importantly, Refn continues to play with the visual canvas as a storytelling medium, relying less with each film on the traditional dialogue-driven approach, constructing shots and scenes that may have made Hitchcock raise an eyebrow. The care given to composition of frame, to every moment and measure of camera movement, allows Refn to strengthen the impact of his story on the viewer without exposing his presence. This is particularly true in the final moments of the final act, when the driver confronts his villain. Refn creatively conceals details, forcing the audience to inch up to the very edge of their seats, patiently but anxiously.

DRIVE offers all this, but still engages the viewer in the dirty underbelly of the criminal world. Without being overly flashy, Refn incorporates some of the best car chase sequences in recent years. The kind of high speed, articulate stunt driving that has the crowd in awe. As for myself, I had to fight the urge to replicate the driving as I left the theater. It’s that infectious. Likewise, Refn does not hold back on the violence, displaying key moments of passionate brutality, but only when the driver is cornered, like an angry badger defending its young. DRIVE is an R-rated film at heart, but only in the sense that it’s a mature, honest portrayal of a side of society most of us never experience outside of cinema. DRIVE has a few subdued moments of humor, most of which are presented by Albert Brooks, but ultimately proves to be an exemplary achievement as a film from a director as comfortable with style as he is with the actors, resulting in what I consider to be the best film of 2011.

With his breakthrough performance as "Eames" in Christopher Nolan 2010 science fiction thriller, Inception (2010), English actor Tom Hardy has been brought to the attention of mainstream audiences worldwide. But the versatile actor has been steadily working on both stage and screen since his television debut in the 2001 miniseries "Band of Brothers" (2001).

After being cast in the WWII drama, Hardy left his studies at the prestigious Drama Centre in London and was subsequently cast in Ridley Scott Black Hawk Down (2001) and as the villain "Shinzon" in 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis (2002).

He began his studies at the prestigious Drama Centre, but left early for a part in the award-winning HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. He made his feature film debut in Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down, with Josh Hartnett. He then appeared with Paul Bettany in The Reckoning, a British film based on the novel Morality Play.

The director of the critically-acclaimed film “Warrior,” which achieved a top box office ranking during its $5.6 million opening weekend, has provided CNA with an exclusive look at the spiritual friendship that motivated the movie.

“My friend Charles 'Mask' Lewis died last year just as I was preparing to go into production on my film 'Warrior,' for which he was an indispensable help and supporter,” Director Gavin O'Connor recalls in the Sept. 12 column. “I dedicated 'Warrior' to Charles and wanted to mark the occasion of its release by sharing the story of our brief but magnificent friendship.”

Lewis founded the popular “Tapout” clothing line, which gave popular exposure to the world of mixed martial arts in which “Warrior” takes place. He also offered O'Connor, who comes from a Catholic background, with a faithful perspective that shaped the film's story of conflict and redemption.

“We drove to Vegas together one weekend and I was surprised to see Bibles strewn all over the back of his car,” the director remembers. “He was on a path and it inspired me. He spoke about his Christian faith in a way that touched my heart and rekindled the embers of my own Christian upbringing.”

“This big dude, this larger-than-life personality who often wore face paint, was brimming with the love of Christ and it was infectious.”

After Lewis' death in a car accident, O'Connor said he still felt an “almost palpable sense of his spiritual presence” on the film set.

“Having Charles come along in my life was a great blessing for which I’ll always be grateful,” he wrote.

Warrior release on 16th September 2011 in India

Anne Hathaway's first major role came in the short-lived television series "Get Real" (1999).

Establishing her strong screen presence with breakout roles in family fare "The Princess Diaries" (2001) and "Ella Enchanted" (2004), while many of her peers were getting far more attention for their rehab and party antics. But the well-grounded, well-educated Hathaway held focus on her career, evolving into impressively three-dimensional adult roles in widely heralded films "Nicholas Nickelby" (2002), "Brokeback Mountain" (2005) and the role which proved she could more than hold her own against the greatest talents, as well as carry a film herself - "The Devil Wears Prada" (2006).

Anne plays a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place.

Does ace director Robert Rodriguez have another secret trick up his sleeve? Well, it definitely does seem so as he recently revealed that he does have an idea for a 5D future Spy Kids venture.

The writer/director/producer definitely has his hands full at the moment, with his latest Spy kids movie being on the brink of release. When asked about why he wanted to relaunch the Spy kids franchise he said that "Over the years other families and parents and kids would still come up to me and tell me how much they loved “Spy Kids,” which they were discovering on video and TV. I realized there was still a need for them. It wasn’t like movies came and took the place of “Spy Kids” when I left. There was still an empty space for that kind of movie."

Spy Kids 3D  Game Over was in fact one of the first film which successfully incorporated 3D animation into a Hollywood movie. Robert also tells us about how his own young kids were big fans of the “Spy Kids” movies, not knowing that he had made them. It's then that he realized that he needed to do another series.

The idea for the film also is a very interesting story indeed. Robert says," When I saw Jessica [Alba] on the set of “Machete” all dressed up, but with a baby with an exploding diaper. [Laughs] But wow, she’s a mom now, we could really take advantage of that and have her play the sexiest, most beautiful spy mom ever for real in a “Spy Kids” movie. So I pitched her the idea and she thought it was great."

Spy Kids 4: All the time in the world is releasing on 19Th August. Hope you're as excited as we are!

Taylor Lautner's incredibly psyched up for his next release Abduction. It is his breakaway role from the iconic Jacob Black, the beloved werewolf in the twilight series. The movie is all set for it's worldwide release on the 23rd of September and Taylor's fans are indeed very eager to see their favorite hero in a different role.

Lionsgate pictures is planning to release the movie on video-on-demand just three months after the release in theatres, probably after they realized that most people are not willing to pay nowadays for pricey tickets weekend after weekend. Lionsgate's apparent plan is to release it through multiple VoD venues on December 23rd ahead of a DVD release sometime in January. The VoD offering will reportedly come in two variations: standard-definition for $6.99 and HD for $7.99.

However, the VoD availability will only run for 10 days, so that the DVD release in January will not have to compete with it. If this does happen, it will definitely change the way the audiences watch movies, since it provides more a wider variety of to watch from and DVD's itself are on a downfall.

It is not easy being an inventor or a pioneer. Ask Robert Rodriguez. Director of the hit spy series for children – Spy Kids – he was ridiculed when he decided to bring 3D film-making back into mainstream cinema; but no one seems to be complaining now, are they?

When Robert Rodriguez decided to film the third installment in the Spy Kids series in 3D, many questioned this thought of his and wondered if the audience would really be interested in seeing gadgets burst out on to the screen; but in fact, they did and the rest, as they say, is history.

Rodriguez is trying his hand at repeating history again as this time with Spy Kids 4: All the time in the world he shall be introducing 4D or Aromascope – eight different, unique smells that the audience can experience literally as they watch the movie by simply scratching a sensor card.

Come 19th Sepetmber and we're sure that the audiences are not going to be disappointed this time around as well.

Spy kids 4: All the time in the world, stars Jessica Alba who plays the secret spy and also a step mom to the twins, Jeremy Piven, who plays the role of the supervillain Timekeeper, Joel McHale, a spy-hunting reporter, and Ricky Gervais as the voice of the robot dog. The story revolves around the stepmom, whose secret spy identity is unknown to her family, but is forced to reveal herself in order to save the world.

Spy Kids 4 is the first movie to come out with the unique 4D experience or “Aroma-scope” which is based on creating a sensory experience with onscreen signals to prompt the audience to smell one of eight scents on a special card.

An easy swipe of a finger is all that’s required to emit a scent during particular scenes of the movie in order to enhance the viewing experience. This indeed sounds like a one-of-a-kind movie experience and will prove to be quite a crowd-puller for the movie.

Rodriguez admits there will be some surprises and jokes with the odors, "but I'm trying not to make anyone sick." We’re just going to have to wait till the release of the movie for an exceptional experience.

Douglas Trumbull has been called a visionary, genius, a creator of masterpieces, and these are just a few amongst many other such nicknames. So when Terrence Malick, the director of The Tree Of Life, needed a special effects supervisor for his 22 minute birth of creation of the universe, Trumbull was the obvious choice.

Trumbull, who has been nominated for five Academy Awards and has received the American Society of Cinematographer’s Lifetime Achievement Award, was approached by Malick and told that computer-generated imagery was not what he wanted. Trumbull asked Malick, "Why not do it the old way? The way we did it in 2001?"

Using a variety of materials for the creation of the universe sequence, Trumbull worked in co-ordination with visual effects supervisor Dan Glass. “We worked with chemicals, paint, fluorescent dyes, smoke, liquids, CO2, flares, spin dishes, fluid dynamics, lighting and high speed photography to see how effective they might be,” said Trumbull. “It was a free-wheeling opportunity to explore, something that I have found extraordinarily hard to get in the movie business. Terry didn’t have any preconceived ideas of what something should look like. We did things like pour milk through a funnel into a narrow trough and shoot it with a high-speed camera and folded lens, lighting it carefully and using a frame rate that would give the right kind of flow characteristics to look cosmic, galactic, huge and epic.”

The Tree Of Life is sure to be a visual treat for our viewers, and with Friday just around the corner, there has never been a more awaited movie by the audiences.

Terrence Malick is what Hollywood legends are made up of – only six feature films directed in a span of six decades, yet all six are critically acclaimed movies, a reputation of shying away from premieres and cameras, almost no interviews conducted and a noted specialty in visual splendor and meditative tones in his films. 

His latest film ‘The Tree Of Life’ offers audiences nothing less than what is expected in terms of awe and amazement while watching the film. Being eagerly awaited at the Cannes film festival for almost two years now, The Tree Of Life is a story about a man's childhood memories of his family living in the era of the 50’s, interspersed with imagery of the origins of the universe and the inception of life on Earth.

Malick’s devotion and meticulous approach to film-making and the secrecy which surrounds each and every project, is generally what leads to the huge buzz and excitement during each movie’s release. It has been said that “ Few directors truly “find a film in the edit” like Malick.” Malick’s unique style of direction has indeed gotten many admirers and many have since tried to replicate his treatment of a movie.

While talking about Malick’s direction style in The Tree Of Life, Brad Pitt said, “He’s like a guy with a butterfly net waiting for the truth to go by.” Jessica Chastain, the female lead in the film includes, “it was all about capturing the accident. There’s a section where a butterfly lands on my hand. It’s not in the script, and we didn’t put anything on my hand to make it land there.”
