Nine moved forward

02.25.2009

Rob Marshall's upcoming musical NINE will arrive in cinemas earlier than anticipated, on November 25th, this year. As you probably know the film was inspired by Fellini's 8 1/2 and stars Daniel Day Lewis as Italian filmmaker Guido Contini, a film director who fears he is losing his touch and retreats to a spa for rejuvination. Reality and fantasy blur as several women, ranging from Spanish beauties like Penelope Cruz and elderly Chinese women like Fergie all serve to complicate his life.

I figure this movie will make a shit ton of money, since even for someone who hates musicals as much as I do this is really thrilling. It's like that part of FIRST KNIGHT when Richard Gere runs the gauntlet. Except instead of it being Richard Gere trying to get to the end of the course, it's Daniel Day Lewis trying to win an Oscar. And instead of a wrecking ball and a swinging broad sword and a rotating bridge of fire, it's Nicole Kidman and Fergie and Kate Hudson.
Extra Tidbit: I imagine if Day Lewis wins an Oscar for this he'll probably try and win one voicing hentai or something. Just for the challenge.

Great, but...

Is this really news? Box Office Mojo has listed Nine for 11/25 for at least a month.

Still, I am really intrigued by this. The idea of DDL in a musical is something I would not miss for the world.

BTW, this film is part of the reason DDL wasn't at this year's Oscars. Filming had just finished, and DDL was too exhausted to make the trip.

Daniel Day Lewis is probably the only actor that rightfully deserves an Oscar for every part he plays. The man is that good. I'm always blown away by his talent.

I'm excited to see him in a musical.

I hate musicals. I just hate them. I never understood "the musical" as a movie. It just doesn't make any sense to me. I know it has a massive fan base, and I know people love these movies, but I for one will never, ever be at a theater for one.

Not even the great Daniel Day-Lewis or Johnny Depp could get me to sit through their takes. There's something about someone spontaneously bursting into song that completely throws me away from a film.

I hope the songs are good, that's what decided a musicals success or failure mainly. Antonio got rave reviews when he starred in this on broadway. and it's be great to see Sophia Loren on the screen. She plays his mother I think.

That's not true, is it ? The bit with Fergie being in the film. I was excited up until I came across her name, still interested but no longer excited. Anything with a Black Eyed Pea cant be of high quality. Hell, that douche Will. I. Am managed to make Dylan look uncool, a sure sign of the apocalypse.

Dammit!

When I read the headline, I thought you meant the animated movie. Dammit.

This might be good, though.

That extra tidbit made me LOL. If anyone could pull that off, it's Day-Lewis. Shit, he could probably pull it off reading the dictionary to you.

This movie likes neat. With DDL, I'll give it a shot.
