Filming of »The Bop Decameron« in Rome / Features of the »SUPER« DVD/Blu-ray / Kickstarter campaign for »Na Nai'A«
The production of Woody Allen's »The Bop Decameron« started as planned on July 11 in Rome, Italy. Ellen arrived in the country of pizza, pasta and amore on July 18 and was initially spotted on set towards the end of the week. Most scenes were shot outside at highly frequented locations including: Rome's longest and most popular beach Ostia, the Roma Termini train station, the daily farmer's market of Campo de' Fiori, the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum and the main shopping avenue Via del Corso. It was only a matter of time until the first paparazzi shots turned up on the Internet. I could easily add a hundred of them to the gallery, but I won't do it for the following reasons. It is and has always been the policy of this website to ignore and not repost such photos. Although filming outdoor scenes in Italy's capital is kind of a public event and you could argue these snaps help to promote interest in the film, I'm sure many, if not all photos, have been taken without the knowledge or permission of the actors or the director. The fact that none of them waved off the camera or made some other friendly gesture underlines this thesis. I'm not trying to be the moralist here, but I think it is about showing some respect for Ellen and the people she is working with. You surely don't want pictures of you to be taken while at work either, do you? Why not let the cast and crew do their thing and enjoy the final product in 2012.



While details concerning the story and characters are still sketchy, the following actors have been spotted on the set together and will very likely star in the same vignette:

»Click here to view / hide some potential spoilers«

However, this is all speculation like everything else right now. I'm sure we will get some information to answer the questions we have in mind in due time.



As reported in the previous post, »SUPER« will be released on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow in the UK, and the week after in the USA (August 9, 2011). DVDActive revealed in a recent article the extra features will include a general making-of, an opening titles making-of, a college humor short, deleted scenes, a trailer and a TV spot. Furthermore, there will be a retailer exclusive Blu-ray edition with an extra DVD containing extended scenes, director and cast interviews, a comic con discussion, coverage of the SXSW première and a poster gallery. If you consider the posted cover art, it looks like Best Buy will offer this release. However, since this caused confusion, I tried to get in touch with director James Gunn for an official confirmation. As a response to my request on Facebook, he wrote that staff members of Best Buy interviewed him and the cast at last year's Comic Con and it's plausible they are going to sell an exclusive edition. Although the price difference between Amazon and Best Buy isn't significant, it's up to everyone to decide whether it's worth it to spend some extra money on bonus features or not. If you would like to learn more about the DVD/Blu-ray release, I suggest reading this article on homemediamagazine.com or watch the following interview by MovieWeb, which recently met up with director James Gunn at San Diego's Comic-Con 2011.

After the world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2010, it has been quiet around Johnathon Kay's »Na Nai'A legend of the dolphins«. Indeed, there wasn't much publicity, except actress Megan Fox (»Transformers«) receiving the Iris Award for her work on the documentary at the Maui Film Festival in June. But now Kay is back with a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter to arrange bigger screenings and more parties, make a 3D conversion and simply complete the film. The documentary celebrates the spectacular beauty of the dolphins, their message to humanity, their power, their wisdom, their fun-loving nature, and the importance of their global conservation. They might not be as important as the bees, but dolphins are without a doubt some of the most beautiful living creatures on earth. If you search the internet, you will find stories about heroic dolphins risking their own life to save other non-dolphin creatures, including humans.

Besides, dolphin therapy is a powerful method for the physical and emotional healing, where the dolphins play a key role in the treatment of multiple disorders. Just a few days ago I read in my local newspaper about a male teenager who was heavily abused by schoolmates. They kicked him several times, hurt his genitals and even burnt him with a cigarette. After this terrible incident, he wasn't the same anymore. He stopped speaking, stayed at home all the time and was afraid of all strangers he accidentally met. Since no psychologist was able to help him, a friend of the desperate mother suggested trying dolphin therapy. Fortunately, they raised enough money through donations and were finally able to go to Hawaii for a week, where the guy spent one hour a day with the dolphins. As unbelievable as it sounds, playing with the animals changed his life for the better. He started speaking again, was even able to talk about what exactly happened to him at the schoolyard and wiped the slate clean.



I don't implicitly support this method of treatment, but it is a great example of the special connection the dolphins have with the human race. They have always been one of my favourite animals among others like turtles, chameleons or bumblebees and I'm really proud that Ellen participated in this documentary. I strongly believe it will make people aware of this animal's beauty and teach them it is totally wrong to kill dolphins for no reason (see »The Cove«). We have to make sure these fantastic creatures don't go extinct. So if you have a few dollars to spare, please consider donating to Johnathon Kay's Kickstarter campaign. It won't be easy to reach fundraising goal of $100000, but together we can accomplish anything! Please spread the word and support this documentary in whatever way you can!

Woody Allen finalizes »The Bop Decameron« cast / International + US/UK DVD & Blu-ray release dates for »SUPER«
Just because he’s going on 76 this year doesn’t mean that Woody Allen is ready to slow down just yet. The famous writer/ director has assembled yet another top-notch ensemble for his latest film project, currently entitled »The Bop Decameron«.



The full cast, which was announced yesterday, includes Alec Baldwin (»30 Rock«), Roberto Benigni (»Life is Beautiful«), Penélope Cruz (»Vicky Cristina Barcelona«), Judy Davis (»Husbands and Wives«), Jesse Eisenberg (»The Social Network«), Greta Gerwig (»Greenberg«) and Ellen Page (»Juno«). Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio, Alessandro Tiberi as well as a slate of other Italian actors are set to co-star. It has also been confirmed that the director himself will return to the screen after last appearing in his own 2006 film »Scoop«.



While details about the project are largely being kept under wraps, Allen mentioned the following at a press conference at the recent Cannes film festival in May:

"It's a broad comedy, not a romantic comedy, of various tales interwoven. I'm one of them, in one of them. All the parts are quite significant, there are no cameos. There just happened to be a part that I could play. I can't play the love interest anymore, which is tremendously frustrating. My wife and myself go to Rome because our daughter is going to marry an Italian boy that she met there, and we go over to meet him and meet his family, and what ensues. The film is very broadly funny."

In addition, Variety reported the film will be made up of four separate vignettes and the other stories will focus on an American couple and two Italian couples, although none of the individual storylines will intersect.

»The Bop Decameron« is Allen’s 47th directorial effort and shooting is expected to begin on location in Rome on July 11.

Here’s the official press release:

New York (June 20, 2011) – Woody Allen announced today the full cast for "The Bop Decameron," his latest film in pre-production. Starring, in alphabetical order, are: Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. Co-stars include Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio and Alessandro Tiberi.

"The Bop Decameron" is a Gravier Productions film produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum. This is Allen's first film to be financed by the Italian production and distribution company, Medusa Film. "The Bop Decameron" begins production on July 11 and marks Allen’s first time shooting in Rome. His latest film, "Midnight in Paris," is currently playing in theaters.


All »SUPER« fans from the United Kingdom have a reason to rejoice. G2 Pictures will not only unleash James Gunn’s eagerly awaited superhero comedy in UK cinemas on July 8, but will also release it on DVD and Blu-ray on August 1. This means it comes out one week before the U.S. launch on August 9. Although neither G2 nor IFC Films/MPI Home Video have announced any technical specifications or bonus features yet, Gunn has revealed both discs will include an audio commentary by him and actor Rainn Wilson, some deleted scenes and additional special features like a "Making of the Title Sequence" as well as hilarious behind-the-scenes footage from the sets in Shreveport and Los Angeles.



At the same time, the Japanese can look forward to fighting crime with the Crimson Bolt and Boltie starting July 30. The people in France, in turn, are less fortunate and have to wait a bit longer until they can see what happens "between the panels". French theater owners apparently became very squeamish about the violence in »SUPER« and decided to cancel the planned theatrical release. The film is still scheduled to arrive on DVD/Blu-ray some time later this year though. But don't worry, the Germans are facing a similar situation. We have a distributor, but there is no official word yet on how and when we will get to see it, except for some special screenings in a few major German cities in conjunction with this year's Fantasy Filmfest.

In this spirit, Shut Up, Crime!

Live Broadcast of tomorrow's MTV Movie Awards powered by Popsugar / Upgrade of the Usolved news script
This year’s MTV Movie Awards will air tomorrow night and, as usual, you can expect a whole bunch of crazy award categories that classier award shows like the Oscars and the Globes simply don’t provide. Although Ellen has received several nominations for »Inception«, there is no official word yet if she is going to attend this LA-based event. Popsugar will be going live from the red carpet at 4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET and will interview celebrities as they arrive. Follow the link below to tune into the live broadcast!

Even if there is no news about Ellen Page, the work on this website steadily continues. New images are added to the gallery, articles and interviews are added to the press archive, the fancorner is being updated with further items like the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray of »SUPER« and so on. In the past two weeks, I worked on upgrading the old news script to the latest version. Its author recently decided to merge the free "Lite" with the rather professional "Pro" edition making some new and useful features available to everyone. While I'm satisfied with the script in general, I also have to admit the user support isn't the best and there are still some minor bugs that need to be fixed. But unlike other webmasters I'm doing my own coding, so this isn't a big deal at all. The new script has already been upgraded since Thursday and works fine as far as I can judge. It may not look like much has changed at first glance, but if you dig a little deeper and you will notice a few differences. Here is a brief description of the new features, improvements and changes.


  • Improved RSS feed: The previous version was hands down a joke. It had no formatting and html tags as well as BB codes weren't interpreted correctly. Now each posting keeps its basic layout and URLs, images and other web elements are displayed properly. I hope the updated design will even increase the chance for EPO to become an IMDb NewsDesk Partner in near future. Take a look at the two screenshots below for a pre-post comparison:
  • Revised comment function: While the original formatting including paragraph breaks and line breaks of each comment were correctly saved in the MySQL database, the script didn't output them in a suitable way. I've manually fixed this problem, so the comments are now shown correctly. At the same time, a query has been added which checks the correct format of the given email address. Since some bots try to spam certain new posts almost every day, I've modified the captcha code by using a new DotMatrix font as well as gridlines in the background and activating case sensitivity. I think the current settings provide the best balance between readability and security. In case users can't read the given code, they can generate a new one by clicking on the icon next to it. And finally the form moved to the top of the page making it easier for you to find out if your comment was successfully added or not. Again, here are some illustrative screenshots:
  • Direct links: As you may know from other scripts and sites, you can add an "id" parameter to the news page URL to directly view a specific post (Example: www.ellenpage.org/newsscript.php?id=275). The previously used "rssid" variable is still available though.
  • Enhanced search results: The "Lite" script completely displayed all posts that included the entered search word on a single page. This was not only confusing, but also generated a temporary high load on the client computer. The new layout, which I created myself, simply outputs the title and the first 500 letters of each post making the search results more user friendly.
  • Wap portal: This brand new feature was requested by long-term fan Hera B. a few years ago and is now available at "wap.ellenpage.org." As I only own an old-fashioned Sony Ericsson K750i, I haven't had the chance to test it in practice. But I used an online testing website to give it a first shot. I think it will serve the basic purpose, although there are some minor bugs that should be fixed. On the one hand, images are still embedded causing a long loading time and on the other hand, the URL's destination instead of it's caption is displayed. However, I'm willing to invest some time into further developing and optimizing it, if this feature attracts wide interest.
  • Browser compatibility: The new script has been tested with all major browsers including Internet Explorer 8/9, Firefox 3.6/4, Google Chrome 11, Apple Safari 5 and Opera 11.11 to ensure optimal usability.
As always, please leave thoughts and feedback in the comment section!
