New movie stills and official US release dates for »SUPER« / Screenings in Italy / »Inception« on DVD/Blu-ray
Earlier this week, director James Gunn revealed some new stills and finally confirmed the first US release dates for »SUPER«. The movie will land in theatres in Los Angeles and New York City on April Fool's Day (April 1) before it hits more screens in fifteen to twenty of the twenty-five biggest markets in the United States on April 8, 2011. Whether it then gets a wider release depends a lot on the general interest and what the moviegoers and fans demand and want. So if you'd like to have a screening in your area, tell your local theater you want »SUPER«! Moreover, Gunn has announced that his superhero comedy might also be available via Video-On-Demand at the same time.



If you live in North Italy, you have the unique chance to meet him and see the movie at the 28th Torino Film Fest this weekend (December 3 and 4, 2010). Visit torinofilmfest.org for screening times and more information and check the official schedule, which provides links to buy tickets online.



Once again, please let people know about »SUPER« and help to promote it by spreading the word on Twitter, Facebook, boards, blogs and so on and so forth. Also make sure to sign up for the mailing list here, visit James Gunn's website and the movie's Facebook page as well as EPO's very own fanpage on Facebook, run by Ben and yours truly, for the latest updates!



According to Hitfix, Warner Bros. held a party for select members of the media and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (best known for its annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony) in the Hollywood Hills last Tuesday to celebrate the upcoming DVD / Blu-ray release of »Inception«. Although only director Christopher Nolan, producer Emma Thomas and composer Hans Zimmer had promised to be in attendance, the event found stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page and Ken Watanabe coming out to support the film and its potent awards campaign.

The DVD and Blu-ray will be available for purchase online and in stores all around the globe in the coming weeks, just in time for the holiday season. While the German release date is officially set for December 3, Amazon Germany already started to ship pre-ordered copies yesterday. As a result I have received my copies in the mail today as you can see on the photos below.
I highly recommend that you buy this terrific, innovative and mind-blowing sci-fi thriller. Not only because it was simply one of the best movies this year (and the first movie I have seen three times in theater), but also because both editions have some great extras and the current street price of $16.99 (DVD) and $24.99 (Blu-ray) is more than fair!

Meanwhile, a new feature called »Assemble Your Team« has been added to the comprehensive official website. It's basically a personality test containing 12 questions that matches you to a character in the movie. Here is my result (I swear I have only played it once):

Book Launch Party for Rainn Wilson's »Soul Pancake« / Ellen to host a »Slude Diet« screening in Halifax / Statement
This past Friday actor Rainn Wilson celebrated the launch of his book »Soul Pancake« at the William Morris Endeavor agency in Beverly Hills, California. Cast members from NBC's »The Office« TV series including Steve Carell, Creed Bratton, Zach Woods and Leslie David Baker came to the party to show their support for their co-stars’ delve into the literary world. James Gunn, Steve Agee, Sarah Silverman and Ellen were also in attendance promoting their buddy.

Based on the wildly successful same named website, »Soul Pancake« urges you to explore philosophy, creativity, spirituality, love, truth, science, and so much more. With a revealing introduction by Rainn, 180 of life's big questions, intriguing challenges and mind-bending art, this book creates a space for you to stimulate your brain stem, spark your soul and figure out what it means to be human. It is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound and everywhere books are sold for $19.99.




Remember my post regarding the use of biosolids in Halifax? Well, the situation hasn't changed much since then and is still strained. Although many citizens are concerned about biosolids being a threat to agricultural land, farm animals, food, water and public health, the city council keeps spreading them on public land. Now the fight is entering a new phase.

Ellen and Lil MacPherson, the co-owner of the Wooden Monkey restaurant, are going to host a complimentary screening of Mario Desmarais’ »Sludge Diet«. It will be held at the Park Lane Theatre on Spring Garden Road in Halifax on November 7 at 7:00 PM. This highly acclaimed 52-minute documentary from Quebec includes discussion by scientists, victims, farmers, activists and government officials from the US, Canada, France and Switzerland. The film focuses on the health and environmental problems linked to using sludges as "fertilizer."

The two activists and all the local people involved in organizing this hope that Halifax’s municipal government and other local politicians will take this opportunity to attend. Ideally, the politicians would ask questions and hear the concerns and questions posed by the citizens of Halifax. In this way they expect to have a lively public debate and learn about some great alternative uses for the sewage waste during the discussion period following the screening.



For more information on this event, please visit its page on Facebook or the Nova Scotia Environmental Network website!

Update - 11/05/2010 @ 9:00 pm

Both Ellen and Lil were on the »Rick Howe Show« on News 95.7 yesterday afternoon to express their concerns regarding the ongoing use of biosolids in Nova Scotia and the upcoming local screening of »Sludge Diet«. You can download and listen to my recording of the program below.

Finally, I would like to say some words concerning the recent downtime of the website. There were no technical problems or upgrades. I took it down on purpose because I needed to reconsider my commitment to this project and also find answers to some important questions. Over the past 4 years I’ve really enjoyed working on the website and everything that came with it. Some say I’ve created a true "labour of love", but I rather think this was just my way to show my support and admiration for a person that is really important to me and I care about a lot. However, it hasn't been always easy to keep it up since there are still various things and issues I am not happy about.

Since I maintained three other websites before, I knew from the start a webmaster always gives more than he receives from others. But due to the extreme lack of input, feedback and other factors in the past few months, I finally came to the conclusion that it doesn't seem to make any difference to anyone, including Ellen herself, if the site is online or not. Actually, I found myself feeling like the odd man out because I felt my efforts and work were not honoured or recognized as they should be.

I don't know if it's the right term, but I felt underappreciated for all the time and effort I have put in this site. I started to ask myself, "Why am I doing this at all?"

I believe only a handful of people really know and understand how hard and time consuming is it to maintain EPO at the current level with all its content. EPO consists of not only the self-written articles like the one you are currently reading, but also the website with all its pages and sections, the gallery, the press archive, the calendar plus the profiles on Twitter and Facebook.

Every part needs to be updated, which often means several times a week or a day. 98 percent of everything you see here was collected, put together and posted by myself and this is only possible because I'm spending and sacrificing my whole free time, energy and not to forget a lot of money for this project.

During the 2 weeks long downtime I kept reading stuff like "EPO was seriously one of the best run fan sites for a celebrity out there", "I've only seen fan sites like that for huge movie stars/musicians, and mega series like Twilight and Harry Potter", "Hope EPO comes back up soon" or "It's the best Ellen Page site I know of". Although I'm humbled for these lines, I have to ask those people "Where are you now" or "Why don't you show your appreciation and care while it's online?"

The other day I asked for some help with a newly established calendar on the forum. Though there were absolutely no obligations and I pointed out I don't expect a certain level of contribution, only one member was willing to help in the end. This is typical of the level of support I get.

Actually it is so easy ... some of the ways people could contribute are:
  • Commenting on news articles
  • Signing the guest book once in a while
  • Re-Tweeting or responding on Twitter
  • Making donations
  • Joining the message board
  • Sending me feedback by email
  • Sending links to articles for the press archive
  • Scanning magazines or papers for the gallery
However, don't get me wrong. I'm not completely unhappy. Like I said earlier, there are actually people and companies who are or were a great help for me and the site. One person that should be mentioned in this context is Jim H. from Canada. Over the last year he became a very close friend and literally my right hand, though we've never met in real life due to distance. He is also a moderator on the message board and the one who always proofreads my articles, periodically makes donations and does a lot of stuff in the background. To make a long story short, it means a lot to me to have him here.

Recently, I received a request from the filmmakers of the »2012: Time for Change« documentary who kindly asked me to put a "host a screening" banner on the site. At the same time, »SUPER« director James Gunn recently made a visit to EPO and grabbed a photo for his posting on Facebook. In the past, I was contacted by Miramax Films asking for my help in promoting »Smart People«. Also I've been in touch with Warner Bros. Germany who granted me access to the latest videos and images for »Inception« on request, and Rhino Records and Lynn Hirshfield (author of »Girls Gone Green«) who provided some items for contests. Believe me when I say I'm more than happy for that. But these glimmers of hope are rather something of a rarity.

Despite the fact that I'm really not pleased with some things at the moment, I eventually decided to put everything back online. The major reason for this decision was that I didn't want four years of hard work to be completely wasted. Moreover, I think there is no alternative to this website. I mean, who else brings you the latest information on Ellen Page? Who else reported about »Vanishing of the Bees«, »Na Nai'a - Legend of the Dolphins«, the »Global Work Party« or the upcoming documentary screening in Halifax? Sure, there are other so called fan sites out there, but two out of three hasn't been updated since the beginning of October or earlier. And no offense guys, but running a fan site means more than copying and pasting external articles, embedding videos from YouTube or adding pictures to the gallery once in a while. It's all about taking time out of your day to keep up with your favourite star and supporting this person all the way through in good and in bad times.

There’s one last thing. Occasionally I am pleased to find nice comments about the site. I recently came across an article from a former message board member Ryan Burton, on Helium. You can find it here:
http://www.helium.com/items/1746036-ellen-page-online-website-review-wwwellenpageorg.

Without the input, feedback, help and support of the visitors, fans and people who apparently care about this project, this won't work in the long run. I think there are so many ways to show your gratitude, appreciation, and recognition for EPO and my work. So I want every one of you to ask yourself what you can do to keep this site alive and running for all of us to enjoy!

Thanks for your time reading this
~Dominik


And last but not least... Happy Halloween to everyone!
