I am very, very, very old school when it comes to certain things in the digital era, I don’t do selfies at events or parties, I suppose it’s not because I disapprove, it’s just not something I’m adept at.
However, I’m really, really, good at eavesdropping. Overheard the night before the Oscars, let’s just say it was a private affair.
Can’t you just IMAGINE the conversation between Crowe and whichever thug at CAA he’s signed to (said with love – would sign with them in a heartbeat – remind me to tell you the story of opening the back kitchen door to Bryan Lourd at Carrie Fisher’s house some time).
RC: Noah? The character’s called Noah?
Agent: That’s right.
RC: So what does this guy Noah do? Bit of an old fashioned name for an action hero bloke don’t you think?
Agent: We like to think of Noah as the Original Man of Action.
RC: Strewth! THAT Noah?
Agent: You did play Superman’s father…
RC: That’s because it was a heck of a lot of money.
Agent: This is more.
RC: Let’s build an Ark, men!
we adore eavesdropping too.
A vital source for authors, don’t you think?
Speaking of which, when do I get to read “Emerald”?
would you really like to see the manuscript?
or a print out at some later date and dropped off when one comes for tea?
I have to think about that for a second.
Digitally — excellent…
but we still have to have tea!
you tell me when 🙂 .
No other reason to make that flick!
Forgive us, Cecil B. DeMille.
[…] trips *saidvaguely* was all the way over there to the virtual bungalow on the Studio Lot to visit Miss Vickie Lester (who has a wickedly funny post on her site that Just went Live *smiles*) as who-we-are-in-RL was doing a digital check up (we curled up quietly on the lovely chaise […]
Delicious eavesdropping of an decidedly undelicious prospect motion picture wise.., la Crowe as Noah!?!
The Perfumed Dandy
I feel mean saying this, because Aronofsky has done some visually arresting movies – really gorgeous – but to me this looks like a video game:
Sadly, it would not be alone in that these days in cinema.
Agreed though, Mr A has done some very interesting, if at time troubling, work before.
And trailers can, like talk shows, cheapen.
The Perfumed Dandy
You are quite right, I will give him the benefit of the doubt!
Ahahahahaha! I couldn’t believe it when I saw the trailer to that thing; I look forward to a few years time when they release Noah 2 Judgment Day and Noah 3D The Revenge (shot back-to-back).
Tell Carrie Fisher story, please. We like Carrie tales (that’s the Royal “We”!).
“The sequels came in two by two….”
Oh, drat! I was eavesdropping, so I don’t know the Carrie Fisher story. But, if I play my cards right I might be able to find out 😉 .
I saw some stills from this today and couldn’t stop laughing. Rusty as SuperNoah. Brilliant….
Am I allowed to say that I chuckled through the trailer? It is very superhero!
I just watched the trailer above…. Hmmmm… Now I have an uncontrollable urge to watch LOTR. SuperNoah, Lord of the Boat? 😀
(Anthony Hopkins looks very much like Bernard Hill did when he was the (heavily powdered) King of Rohan.)
Bwahahaha! That is priceless!
