By Peter Jackson, Ooh la la~~~
This trailer is awesome, though at the moment

Not Coraline or Alice in Wonderland wicked,
but still worth watching~
And it’s filled with celebrity voices…
like George Clooney (Mr. Fox), Meryl Streep (Mrs. Fox), Michael Gambon,
Willem Dafoe, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody
Brian Cox, Anjelica Huston and even Wes Anderson who is also directing this
stop-motion animated film… hmm,
do I see a new Best Animated Feature nominee here?

ZOMG!
a la Juri! DVD + Photobook!

Mainland pop star Zhou Bichang (a.k.a. BiBi) turns movie director! Since signing with her new record company, the 2005 Super Girl first runner-up has directed three shorts that were first released on the Internet. They are now collected on DVD, allowing fans to witness her developing visual creativity and narrative flair. The first one, “Hide and Seek”, was highly popular in the 3rd Global Awards of Chinese New Media competition. BiBi plays an angel in the second chapter “Angel’s Corner”, which expresses her concern for various social issues, while the final piece “One Half Each Person” is more self-reflecting.The DVD comes with a 210-page full-color photobook, in which the bespectacled singer appears entirely without makeup. The book also includes photos she has taken around the world, as well as excerpts from her diaries written between April to December of 2008.

Ooh la! Short films~~~

Bibi Chow - Make Up Remover, Good to Be Myself

Too bad it’s not subbed. But still, would be interested to see it.
And it’s okay-priced. Would you consider? LOL

Teaser tease!
This gave me the chills, and it’s only the teasing part before the trailer. LOL

Looks abso-bloody-lutely fantastic~
We know the story… but it’s all about the vision,
and the Cheshire Cat looks freaky O.o

*EDIT*
damn, will get back to you when they re-post this.

*EDIT*
Disney’s finally letting the teaser do its magic again. =D

Yu Aoi Short Takes~

I know, I know… I’m being lazy.

By the way, by the time of posting this, I’m probably away taking photos at a concert. This is a scheduled post because I wanted Maggie Cheung as the first post for a little longer… xD

I usually post one thing per post, but there’s too much Yu to post –
all via aoinohoho’s Yu-dedicated JP blog.
dozou~~~

First!

Rumors that NHK’s future 2011 (I know, I know… so far ahead) Taiga drama (a la Yoshitsune, Atsuhime) would be centered around three sisters… The Three Asai Sisters (?). They throw in some names like Masami Nagasawa and Aya Ueto, but seem positively (?) more thrilled to throw in Yu’s name xD – though you know, it IS a Google Translate.

Me on the other hand… I loved Atsuhime… a strong female who moved the pieces in this game of life. That may have had to do with the high ratings the show got alongside the writing, and production values. So the prospect of Yu on a Taiga drama thrills me. For one thing, I will be able to watch her once a week on my TV for a year. LOL – but then, that will mean a decrease on films… *eek!*

Second!

Apparently (this is old old news), FRaU Magazine had a list Yu’s 10 Best Films~
Some interesting choices there!

3 films in English made it to her list…

  • White Oleander (2002)
  • 2:37 (2006) [starring fellow Teresa Palmer of December Boys, Daniel Radcliffe fame]
  • Almost Famous (2000)

A very international one… actually, a two-part film project titled Ten Minutes Older, divided into The Trumpet and The Cello. (2002)

And the rest are Asian… though I’ve only heard of Sway (with fellow Joe Odagiri), which I wanna watch.

and third!

aoinohoho uploaded this 9min video of… Yu talking about a book? Book reading?

Oh yeah, and did I mention my mom loves Yu? She told me that tonight… again. LOL
