Rise of The Guardians
Of Course everyone should know now that book based movies are becoming contagious for several studios. 'Harry Potter,' 'Lord of the Rings,' 'Twilight,' 'Hunger Games' 'How to train your dragon' and speaking of 'How to train your dragon' from the makers of this great movie come 'Rise of the Guardians.'
Rise of the Guardians is based on a book called 'Guardians of Childhood' by Williams Joyce. I've actually had the honor of reading this book with my kids. It was pretty good considering what they're probably going to do with it. Lets face it...DreamsWorks undoubtedly did a great job with How to train your dragon...but lets face it, there was nothing in it from the original story save for there names. They even ruined Toothless' if you haven't read the book series...Toothless is suppose to look like that tiny green dragon that could fit on Hiccups shoulder.
After you watch the Rise of the Guardians trailer...I suddenly stopped, and thought to myself. 'Wow...I'm actually impressed with this' Then I realized there is a character missing that's been all over there posters. 'Jack Frost' (who will be played by the new Capt. James T. Kirk.'Chris Pine'...or so says IMDB.com. which I don't really like to refer to. Specially since they're saying that there's a second 'Dark Crystal movie out in 2011...but there wasn't. Was heart broken)
Okay getting back to the characters. I was actually amazed to find out the voice of Santa/North (That Russian sounding guy) is being played by Alec Baldwin! I am very very stunned cause wow he did a great job on the voice. Another is the Easter Bunny/Bunnymund...that's Wolverine people!!...yeah High Jackman. Also the ToothFairy/Tooth (The chick from Rango) yeah Isla Fisher...The Sandman...not to sure about if anyone can tell me that would be great.
The bad guy...is Pitch (Jude Law) He controls the Darkness. He gets into your dreams and turns them into Nightmares. All those...badness points and stuff I won't tell you everything he can do. Only that he looks...wow bad (Self Censored)
Now heres something you don't see every day. Not only did William Joyce write this book series (Yes its a book series just like How to train your dragon, part two is How to be a Pirate) he's also an Executive producer...so this might end up being good :D
