New Pete's Dragon movie is in Production

Production has started in New Zealand on a new Pete's Dragon. It stars 10-year-old Oakes Fegley (This is Where I Leave You) as Pete. 

The cast also includes Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help), Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games), Oscar-winner Robert Redford and Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness). Howard will be playing Grace, a park ranger who discovers Pete and his dragon friend Elliott, Redford will be playing her father. Bentley will play Jack, a local mill owner, and Urban will play Jack’s brother, Gavin.

The Film is directed by David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints.)

“This is a story about how magic can enter one’s life and change the way they see the world. And I think David Lowery is the perfect director to bring this project to life,” says producer Jim Whitaker.

Weta Digital, the Wellington-based digital visual effects company that provided VFX for The Hobbit and the Planet of the Apes prequels, is animating Elliott.

“New Zealand has long been a wonderful partner for film production. Wellington’s state-of-the-art facilities and filmmaker-friendly community, in particular, make it an ideal location to shoot and be based out of,” says executive producer Barrie Osborne. 

This was one of my favorite movies as a kid, there's a part of me that is looking forward to an updated version. But I will always love the classic.

Pete’s Dragon will be in theaters on August 12th, 2016.

The Walking Dead: Trivia About the Voice on the Radio, What He's Actually Saying and more

This weeks The Walking Dead “What Happened and What’s Going On,” was one of the saddest of the show. Beautifully crafted, delving into the mind of a dying man.

Among the sadness was some interesting trivia. The first being the voice on the radio broadcasts. That was actually the voice of Andrew Lincoln (Rick), in his normal accent. 

A disturbing note to what he was actually saying: It was all from real radio reports about the Rwandan genocide. How sad.
“At least 68 citizens of the republic have been killed in four deadly attacks along the main coastal district. The group has continued their campaign of random violence, moving across the countryside unfettered with the republic’s military forces in disarray … There have been troubling reports of cannibalism having broken out in refugee camps along the republic’s transportation corridor. And despite the string of victories by rebel forces, there are disturbing reports of increasing the brutality of their tactics including the wholesale destruction of villages, burning down local prisons, targeting of civilians, and even the widespread mutilation of children and young mothers.”

Also, what was with all the wolf/dog references? There was the graffiti behind Michonne, dog pictures in Noah's little brother's room and someone pointed out that the barb wire fence they had to climb through is a good way to deter wolfs.

All I could think of was Bad Wolf. (Doctor Who reference.)

Now a days getting 15 million viewers is not the norm. The average cable show grabs about 7. The Walking Dead back half of season five began with a 15.6.
