I was looking at Ebert's latest reviews and found out that the original Japanese "Godzilla" is being re-released for it's 50th anniversary. wow.

"Johnny Depp teaming up with Tim Burton yet again in 'The Corpse Bride'
Today's batch of updates includes casting news for Tim Burton's second stop-motion animation project, The Corpse Bride (Johnny Depp, Christopher Lee and others)"
The Corpse Bride
Cast: (voices) Johnny Depp (The Groom), Helena Bonham Carter (The Corpse Bride), Albert Finney, Christopher Lee, Emily Watson, Richard Grant, Joanna Lumley; other voice cast not yet announced
Based Upon: This movie is based upon a 19th century Russian folk tale. According to that source, this folk tale has its roots in historical facts, as anti-Semitic gangs would often attack Jewish wedding parties, killing and burying the bride in her wedding gown.
Composer: Danny Elfman
Type of Animation: Stop-Motion (like The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach)
Director: Tim Burton and Mike Johnson (feature directorial debut; worked as an animator on James and the Giant Peach, which Burton also produced)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Cast: Johnny Depp (Willy Wonka), Freddie Highmore (Charlie Bucket), David Kelly (Grandpa Joe), Anna Sophia Robb (Violet Beauregarde), Julia Winter (Veruca Salt), Jordan Fry, Philip Wiegratz; other cast not announced yet.
Oompa-Loompa Note: As noted at this fan site, in the original 1964 edition of the novel, the Oompa-Loompa's were pygmies from Africa imported to replace the local workers (part of why the city is so impoverished). This movie will definitely use the Oompa-Loompas with "rosy-white skin", as depicted in later editions

I watched the trailer! It looks good!
I really need to read the third book. I only read the first two and then the first one again in Russian. I really liked the second one. I need to read the third one too because the movie encompasses that too.

Filming Starts on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Source: Warner Bros. Pictures Friday, June 25, 2004

Principal photography is now underway on Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's much loved "Harry Potter" novel series.

With production based at England's Leavesden Studios, the film is directed by Mike Newell (Mona Lisa Smile, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and produced by David Heyman. The screenplay is by Steve Kloves, who has penned the screenplays for all three previous "Harry Potter" films. David Barron (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) serves as executive producer.

Joining the ensemble are several new cast members, led by esteemed actor Brendan Gleeson (Troy, Cold Mountain), who plays Hogwarts' new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher Mad-Eye Moody. Frances De La Tour (The Cherry Orchard, Strike it Rich) plays the Headmistress of Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, Madame Maxime; Roger Lloyd-Pack (Vanity Fair, BBC TV's Only Fools and Horses) plays the Head of the Department of International Magical Cooperation, Barty Crouch; Pedja Bjelac (Eurotrip) plays Durmstrang Professor Igor Karkaroff; Jeff Rawle (Inspector Calls II, Baal, TV's Drop the Dead Donkey) plays Amos Diggory; and David Tennant (Bright Young Things) plays Barty Crouch Jr.

New additions to the young cast include Robert Pattinson (The Ring) as Cedric Diggory; Stanislav Ianevski as Quidditch star Viktor Krum; Clemence Poesy (Bienvenue chez les Rozes, Petite Soeur) as Fleur Delacour; and Katie Leung as Cho Chang.

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Tom Felton once again reprise the roles of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and their archrival Draco Malfoy, respectively. In the roles of fellow Hogwarts students are Matthew Lewis as Neville; Devon Murray as Seamus; Jamie Waylett as Crabbe; Joshua Herdman as Goyle; Alfie Enoch as Dean; Oliver and James Phelps as Fred and George Weasley; and Chris Rankin as Percy.

Returning to the adult ensemble are Robbie Coltrane as Hagrid; Michael Gambon as Headmaster Albus Dumbledore; Robert Hardy as Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge; Shirley Henderson as Moaning Myrtle; Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy; Gary Oldman as Sirius Black; Alan Rickman as Professor Snape; Dame Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall; Timothy Spall as Peter Pettigrew; and Mark Williams as Arthur Weasley.

The production also welcomes back production designer Stuart Craig ("Sorcerer's Stone," "Chamber of Secrets"); director of photography Roger Pratt ("Chamber of Secrets"); costume designer Jany Temime ("Prisoner of Azkaban"); VFX supervisor Jim Mitchell ("Chamber of Secrets"); and creature effects and make-up supervisor Nick Dudman ("Prisoner of Azkaban," "Chamber of Secrets"). Mick Audsley (Mona Lisa Smile, High Fidelity) joins "Goblet of Fire" as editor.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be released in November 2005 by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

hahahaha! I watched the trailer for Shark Tale. Will Smith's fish singing and dancing MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This" cracked me up.

Say, is Joshua Herdman the original Goyle? 'Cause he practically wasn't in PoA.
(update: yep. "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) (as Josh Herdman) .... Gregory Goyle")
Alfie Enoch is the rarely spotlit Dean.
MAN! THIS MOVIE BETTER BE FOUR HOURS LONG! Heck, that would be cutting a lot out! It would like 6 hours to be PS accurate, at least. I want it to be 4 hours. :*( They'll probably squeeze it into 3 though. :( And of course, they cut the superfluous part where Mr. Ollivander shows up again. I was hoping John Hurt could show up again. I <3 John Hurt.

This might be good... hmm
