  • Reviews and Discussion of Prince Caspian

    06/19/2008 9:05:22 PM PDT · by DaveLoneRanger · 41 replies · 255+ views
    This is the "official" thread for discussing Disney/Walden's second installment in the Chronicles of Narnia series. This thread is primarily intended for people who have already seen the movie, as the following review contains some mild spoilers. Here is the review I wrote after seeing the film. The long-awaited Narnia sequel is here, and as promised, delivers a far more “savage” journey into C.S. Lewis’s Narnia. The two-and-a-half hour film doesn’t stop for long, featuring two heavy battle sequences and one intense duel. (As opposed to the one battle for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.) And as you...

    The most recent Indiana Jones film more than recouped its big budget with an estimated $311 million in global box office sales through the long weekend, according to studio estimates Monday. Families went in droves to catch "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," a PG-13 adventure starring Harrison Ford as the whip-cracking archaeologist who took 19 years to return to the big screen. Paramount Pictures estimated the action sequel made $151.1 million in the U.S. and Canada from Thursday to the holiday Monday and $160 million overseas. It marked the second biggest Memorial Day weekend opening ever,...

    This is one movie that I have enjoyed as much as the trailer! As the end credits started to roll, my six-year-old (girl) popped up her head and loudly asked if I would buy the DVD. . . THE GUYS...ARE GUYS! They are not "juiced up" thirty-somethings with sculpted muscles and steroids to match, nor are they psychologically tortured, identity-challenged, oversexed teenagers. They are young males who are not afraid to spill some blood when necessary for the greater good. . . THE GIRLS...ARE GIRLS! . . . [T]he usual "girl empowerment" pomposity that almost universally plagues today's child actresses...

    The second coming of Narnia had a less passionate opening reception than its predecessor and, being the sole new nationwide release of the weekend, led to one of the softest mid-May periods of the decade in terms of overall foot traffic at the movies. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian captured a sizable estimated $56.6 million on approximately 8,400 screens at 3,929 theaters to top the weekend, but the reportedly $200 million sequel heralded a theatrical lull for the franchise based on C.S. Lewis' series of religious fantasy novels. The previous adaptation, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch...

    "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" dethroned "Iron Man" as ruler at the box office, pulling down $56.6 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Walt Disney Co.'s action sequel took in less domestically in its opening weekend than "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe," which sold $65.6 million in North America in its debut weekend in December 2005. "Caspian" also raked in $20.7 million overseas. But Disney expects the PG-rated movie, based on the C.S. Lewis fantasy series, to ride high through the coming Memorial Day weekend. The first "Narnia" tale grossed $745 million...
  • A WAR FLICK WITH HONOR (Narnia's Prince Caspian)

    NYPost ^ | May 12, 2008 | MICHAEL WARD
    HOLLYWOOD seems to have concluded that war movies don't sell. But "Prince Caspian" seems likely to prove the opposite. "Caspian," the new Narnia film from Walden Media based on the CS Lewis classic, is expected to do quite well. The secret: It's not anti-war. Flicks like "Stop-Loss," "Lions for Lambs," "In the Valley of Elah" and "Rendition" have bombed because they're painfully anti-war - and the heavy-handed ideology makes for artistic as well as commercial failure. "Caspian" is a fantasy, of course - but also a war story. Indeed, it's the tale of a just war: Prince Caspian's fight to...

    I still remember the day the “Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” was released; I was the first in line, with my adult son. It was a marvelous masterpiece of a movie. I know that Prince Caspian will be even better. I told Doug during our interview, that I am so excited about seeing this film that I feel like a child again. He laughed and told me I will be thrilled. He continued “...the enemy has tried to steal the film industry, but he has not succeeded. Many in our day seem to think that it is political leaders...

    Over 6,000 visitors to Comic-Con joined the Pevensie children and stepped through the wardrobe to journey into Narnia, with never-before-seen footage from “Prince Caspian” at the Disney Panel. And, according to director Andrew Adamson and producer Mark Johnson, they’ll be doing it again every year for the next decade. “As long as you keep embracing these movies, we’ll make all seven,” Johnson told an appreciative audience. “We start the end of January on “Voyage of the Dawn Treader.’ Our goal is to give you [a new] one every May starting [next year].” The announcement came after a computer pre-visualization which...

    "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," the second live-action/CGI motion picture adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ beloved series of literary classics, began principal photography on location in Auckland, New Zealand, on February 12, 2007. The production, once again a joint venture between the Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media, continues the franchise which commenced with the spectacular, Oscar-winning 2005 release, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," which went on to earn over $745 million dollars in its worldwide theatrical release, making it one of the most successful movies ever made and one of the biggest successes...

    The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian promises to be an even bigger visual spectacle than The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was — if that's possible. However, in spite of the top-notch CG work done on LWW by companies like ILM, Rhythm + Hues, and Sony Imageworks, the producers of Caspian are apparently hiring different companies for the sequel, notably two British effects houses. Industry sources tell IGN Filmforce that Moving Picture Company and Framestore, both based in London, will be responsible for the bulk of the film's digital effects. The information, if accurate, could hint at where director...

    The sequel to Disney's movie adaptation of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is coming home to Ireland. A casting call for Prince Caspian, the next in the series of seven Narnia books, is seeking actors in Ireland and New Zealand. Shooting is expected to start on Prince Caspian in January next year and the producers say the location this time will most likely be "the forests of Europe". If the sequel to the phenomenally successful The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe is shot in Ireland, it will be a return to the very...

    July 28, 2006 - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe opens to the London bombing raids of the Second War War, with the Pevensie children fleeing to the countryside where they will have an even greater adventure. Skandar Keynes, who plays Edmund in the movies, had a similar real-life scare this month — he and his mother were visiting Beirut, Lebanon when that city also came under deadly attack by bombers and fighter jets. Fortunately, the two made it out of the country safely a few days ago. The news was relayed by Mark Johnson,...

    The release date of the sequel to The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe has been postponed by several months. Prince Caspian is now scheduled for summer 2008, said a spokesman for Disney, which is behind the project. Director Andrew Adamson required more time to work on the special effects-laden project, he added. The first film in the series, based on CS Lewis's book, became a major hit at the international box office, where it was number one for several weeks. Jostled Prince Caspian was expected to follow the first film with a US release pencilled in for Christmas 2007....
  • Religious movies making a come back since "Passion of the Christ" by Mel Gibson

    Inspired by box-office smashes such as The Passion of the Christ and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, studios are not only casting an eye to more religious-themed stories, but they're also marketing movies more aggressively than ever to churchgoers. Producers now find themselves making sales pitches to ministers. Executives are screening films in church community rooms. One studio has created a "faith division" to market to the devout. The strategy has two aims: to use faith-based hits to help staunch a three-year box-office slide and to convert those with little faith in Hollywood fare...

    New Narnia movie on the way To the surprise of many, ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ has ended up as one of the most successful movies of 2005. Since Lucas is done making more sequels to ‘Star Wars’ (we hope), that means the 2005 blockbuster sequel mantel falls to Aslan. Variety confirms that not only is a ‘Narnia’ sequel happening, but it’s already moving ahead. Disney and Walden Media are already starting on a script for the follow up, to be based on the second book in C.S. Lewis’ classic fantasy series entitled ‘Prince Caspian’. The aren’t any director attachments to...

    One of my favorite stories is of famished Samaria under siege. "Hear the word of the Lord," Elisha said in 2 Kings 7, "Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria." He was announcing imminent bargain prices on a starvation day when "a donkey's head was sold for eighty shekels of silver" and some dove's dung for five shekels (2 Kings 6:25). Sure. No way. Who will not pity Saul? Nothing was happening. The brave hero, having waited seven days...

    According to a source at Disney who requested anonymity Prince Caspian, the second story in the Chronicles of Narnia, has been greenlit for a December 2007 theatrical release. Disney was hoping for a $60 million opening weekend for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and since the film’s opening exceeded their expectation they are moving forward. Don’t expect an official announcement until later in the week or possibly as late as January. Adamson hasn’t decided whether he will direct the new film, but most think he will be back. The script is very nearly finished, and the general feeling...
