Sneak peek at Dreamworks’ War Horse

War Horse is slated to be in theaters December 28, 2011. Save the date. I know I am!!

DreamWorks Pictures’ “War Horse,” director Steven Spielberg’s epic adventure, is a tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.

The Help Featurette (and my thoughts on the film)

Before I share the featurette with you, my friends, I want to tell you right now that I have an assignment for you: READ THE BOOK The Help.   I read this book on my flights en route to LA last Wednesday and oh gosh, its awesome.  It really, truly is.  I laughed aloud and I wept, right there on the planes.  (Apologies, fellow passengers, who clearly thought I was off my rocker). 

But I want you all to read it so we can dish on it.  And, it will help you to get even more excited for the movie’s release date on August 12th. 

I can’t spill any details, and won’t give spoilers or anything, but I will tell you this:  during the screening we had at Dreamworks last Friday morning, I was absolutely enthralled with this movie.  It has been at least 10 years since I felt so much during a movie.  The casting for this movie is amazing.  The story itself is awesome, the screenplay is great, and the actors simply amazing.  I laughed and I cried, and then I cried some more.  Its awesome.  I can’t wait to go again when this comes out in theaters.  

Don’t wear mascara, and definitely don’t wear false eyelashes when you go see the movie.  You may end up with raccoon eyes like I had.  [click to continue…]

The Help: First the book, next the movie: what would you ask? #DisneyDreamWorksEvent

I think I’ve told you that part of this trip includes a screening of The Help.  Now, I haven’t read the book

(yet), but it is packed in my carry on and I will be reading it on the flights on my way to LA on Wednesday.  I’m really excited about this book- I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about it and it has been a long time- too long- since I heard things like that about a book.  The fact that I get to see it in movie form just 2 days later makes me all kinds of happy.  I do like to read the books FIRST, and I may cheat a bit and start it tonight, I’m that excited.  (Or laundry.   I should start that too…)

I have more need of assistance.  Or rather, I need to know what you guys want to know about The Help- the book or the movie.  The process of making it into a movie.  We’ll be having Q&A after our screening so I will have the chance to ask your questions!![ad#glam between posts]
