Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

I finally got around to seeing this. I enjoyed it, it was well executed. Yates does a fine job, but I can certainly see why Rowling looked at Burton and Gilliam in the past for this sort of material, and I'm still not convinced that Yates is the only director for it. One of the strongest performance...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

The thing that really gets it is not only is TMG apparently ready to stoop to the lowest levels, but the way their statements are worded in their latest bile, trying to make Johnny sound like this pathetic worthless person that they are superior to! What a joke! And by the way, there is absolutely n...

Johnny helps Make a Film Foundation grant film wishes

Me too, I hope. It was a little confusing, I didn't see that "add to cart" option right away, so I ended up doing two separate donations through the main MAFF donate option to total $27. I would have liked to get one of the limited edition copies with Guillermo Del Toro's artwork, but do not have th...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

From Deadline Hollywood article posted by Lbock: Depp has engaged in a clear pattern and practice of habitually lying to the public and to public authorities, and of requiring others (including long-term employees, family and so-called friends) to lie on his behalf. This practice has become Depp’s m...

Also, if you're interested in a regular version of the DVD, there is an add to cart option near the bottom of the page, which is an automatic $25 donation and $2 shipping, as opposed to the $20 minimum that I had thought it was. I got the $20 figure from the news article about Del Toro's limited ed...

Johnny helps Make a Film Foundation grant film wishes

A couple corrections to previous post: Leonard Maltin moderated The Black Ghiandola panel, actor Bruce Davison was the host. I'm going to look on youtube again, but so far have found no video for this, and I don't know who all was part of the panel. (I'm not sure how Davison is connected to Make a F...

Here are some words from Leonard Maltin about The Black Ghiandola, taken from the Make a Film page. Apparently he hosted a panel after the premiere. Also, there is information on a limited edition run of the DVD featuring artwork by Guillermo Del Toro! See the website for details, but a $20 donation...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

“It’s my money,” Mr. Depp told The Wall Street Journal. “If I want to buy 15,000 cotton balls a day, it’s my thing.” :biglaugh: that cottonball comment, and the comment that the cannon cost $5 million, not $3 million....that's just typical, awesome Johnny. Completely agree! Good for him. It's been ...

30th anniversary of Withnail and I

I've heard Johnny mention this movie on many occasions. Several times during The Rum Diary junket especially, because Withnail is the reason why Johnny and Hunter wanted Bruce Robinson to write and direct TRD. During The Lone Ranger junket, an airhead journalist asked him what his favorite westerns ...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Good news, welcome Tony#3! As for my recent posts about Rowling having had interest in Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam as directors, well, that may not be in the cards, but between her and Yates, they found the one actor in Johnny who brings the same kind of outside the box dreaming aesthetic as those ...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

David Yates will be directing the remaing four movies. He directed the last four of the Potter movies. Is that official, signed on the dotted line sort of thing? At first glance that doesn't sound like great news to me. I do trust my buddy Terry's opinions about film for the most part, so when he s...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Agreed - on all fronts, fireflydances, but (selfishly, perhaps) most importantly for Johnny. For Johnny? He loves working with those guys. Are you just worried about the press getting on him if he ever works with with Burton or Gilliam again? I don't see how avoiding these guys is supposed to be a ...
