While Studio Ghibli had actually built a real-life version of the house from My Neighbor Totoro in Aichi Prefecture, you weren’t allowed to spend the night in it. It turns out ANOTHER replica existed in Nagasaki Prefecture that patrons could spend the night for $45 USD (or 5,000 yen) a night. That doesn’t seem to be the case now, as this replica of Satsuki and Mei’s house is now managed by a local nursery school.

For the last two years or so (so, since around 2016), director, Paul W. S. Anderson — who’s directed two of my favorite films: Mortal Kombat and Event Horizon) has been working on a Monster Hunter movie. While I can now actually audibly hear you roll your eyes to the back of your head over the scoffing, we now also know that the film has a star, Anderson’s wife and actress Milla Jovovich. For your own safety I heavily recommend that you stop rolling your eyes further back; just looking out for you. Anyway, Variety reports that Anderson recently delivered the latest draft of the film’s script, and the Monster Hunter film adaptation will begin shooting this September in South Africa. It has also been reported that special effects studio Mr. X will be involved, having worked with Anderson on the special effects for the Resident Evil movies.

The sprawling and well-preserved 16th century Italian villa featured prominently in the Academy Award nominated coming-of-age film, Call Me By Your Name, is for sale. The film’s director Luca Guadagnino told Architectural Digest “”I had known that house for many years; I even dreamed of buying that house. I knew where I was going to set the action of the film—this place with faded, aristocratic charm, that a professor and his wife might have inherited but can’t quite keep up.” Continue reading “The Italian Villa Featured in “Call Me By Your Name” Is Up For Sale”
Around this time last year, it was reported that Donnie Yen cast to star in a film based on the game Sleeping Dogs, developed by United Front Games and published by Square-Enix in 2012. To be perfectly honest, the casting of Yen as the game’s protagonist, Wei Shen, makes perfect sense; Sleeping Dogs is essentially a mash-up of numerous films in Yen’s filmography. Taking to Instagram without even saying (while somewhat implying) that the film was in shooting, Yen confirmed that this latest video game-to-film adaptation has entered production. Continue reading “Donnie Yen confirms “Sleeping Dogs” Film Adaptation is in Production”
