'Welcome To Marwen' features a huge nod to one of Robert Zemeckis' most iconic movies that will catch audiences completely unaware.
Welcome To Marwen. It’s a dramatic retelling of the story first told in the acclaimed 2010 documentary Marwencol, of Mark Hogancamp, an artist whose life is changed forever when he’s dealt a brutal beating by a gang of thugs. The attack deprives Mark (played in the film by Steve Carell) of his memory and, as part of his therapy, the artist builds a toy WW2 town – Marwen – which he populates with dolls inspired by people in his life, and Hoagie, his doll avatar.

In an example of life imitating the movies, a motorist has been caught speeding in his DeLorean at speeds of, wait for it, 88mph. Nigel Mills, 55, of Brentwood was actually summoned to court after being accused of getting his 34-year-old sports car, a classic DeLorean made famous by the ‘Back to the Future’ films, to 89mph… so shouldn’t he have disappeared leaving blazing tire marks? The incident took place in November of last year whereby Mr. Mills protested his innocence after receiving a court summons to Chelmsford Magistrates after two officers clocked him speeding.

Before George Lucas committed to directing ‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace’, he offered the job to some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Ron Howard, Robert Zemeckis, and Steven Spielberg - all of whom turned him down. Howard, whose new film ‘In The Heart of the Sea’ (in UK cinemas on Boxing Day), revealed all on the Happy Sad Confused podcast when the host asked him if Lucas ever offered him the chance to make a ‘Star Wars’ film.
Yahoo Movies got the opportunity to sit down with annoyingly talented movie star/producer/director Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The star is promoting his new film ‘The Walk’ (in cinemas now), which sees him play Philippe Petit - the daredevil who made headlines worldwide when he performed a wire walk across the Twin Towers in 1974.
Director Robert Zemeckis said he hoped to induce vertigo with his new film ‘The Walk’ and it seems he’s managed it if reports coming out of New York cinemas are to be believed. Journalist Mark Harris, who saw the film at the New York Film Festival over the weekend, tweeted: “Reports of guys vomiting in the Alice Tully men’s rm post-The Walk: True. Bad visual trigger for vertigo sufferers.— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) September 27, 2015 The film which is being released in 3D IMAX relives the true story of French daredevil Philippe Petit who, in 1974, strung a high wire between the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Centre before traversing the gap at 1,300 feet several times without a safety harness.
The seemingly endless cycle of remakes, reboots, reimaginings and any other number of ‘re’-prefixed verbs that have done the rounds in the film industry this past decade or so has invariably left many film fans asking - is nothing sacred anymore? Well, it seems we may have our answer, as word gets out that Universal may have their sights on rebooting two of the greatest Hollywood blockbusters of all time: ‘Jaws’ and ‘Back to the Future.’ - Spielberg Predicts End of Superhero Genre - Lead Actress Candidates For Spielberg’s Ready Player One - Jurassic World 3rd Biggest Movie Ever This news comes from a highly trustworthy source, The Hollywood Reporter, who mention Universal’s plans almost as an aside in their report on Steven Spielberg’s Dreamworks looking set to move house from Disney to Universal for distribution. The Spielberg connection is of course vital here. Not only did the legendary filmmaker get his big break making the original classic ‘Jaws’ for Universal back in 1975, he also produced ‘Back to the Future’ for the studio in 1985, as well as its two sequels.
