Podcast: Blast Off #7 – Focus on Movies – Soderbergh Gets ‘Haywire’
The seventh Team Focus Blast Off is here, featuring Ernie Estrella.
This week’s Blast Off starts with a Box Office rundown, topped by Underworld Awakening and Red Tails, as we check out the hot films of the weekend and see what December movies are still drawing viewers attention. Once again, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (aka the Best Popcorn Flick of 2011) makes the Top 10, while Disney continues to pull in numbers by re-releasing it’s animated classics in 3D.
The team takes in-depth look at Director Steven Soderbergh’s new action thriller Haywire, starring MMA fighter Gina Carano. We delve into the big names that star in the film, including Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender. We also discuss the ups and downs of dialogue, stunt casting, over-indulged filmmaking and ADR.
Finally, we go into two of our favorite recently released trailers: Project X (from the creators of The Hangover) and Jeff, Who Lives at Home (from the Duplass Brothers). We talk about what’s so hot about these trailers and why you will want to keep an eye out for them this March.
