Cannes: 2046, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS (with Pics!!!) and Roller Girl goodness!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a little precoverage from this year's Cannes film festival. One of these days I'll experience the wonder of Cannes, but this year is not my year! Below we have a nice pre-fest write up plus some pics (yummy) from the Zhang Ziyi/Andy Lau flick THE HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS from that I've littered throughout the piece. The good folks over at JoBlo also have some pics up from Cannes. Hit 'em here! Enjoy the below, squirts!


Well, Treb here once again for another year. The weather is bad, the systems have all changed, the faces are pretty much the same, the French keyboards still suck and there is yet another new Van Damme production being advertised bigtime - pasted across the front of a hotel.

This time, its "Van Damme: KUMITE". Hmm, a coupla letters missed out there, or the word is in need of a spell check. Man, the picture of The Muscles From Brussells looks rough. How many times can you try and reinvent your career with the same move? Blood sport, The Quest... Well, Guy Richeeeeee does it, so why not Van the Man?

So, Im here to see some movies and there are some getting good word already.. 2046, the dude zho brought us Chungking Express, is in competition, House of Flying Daggers and Irwin Winklers De-Lovely.

Ah, the arty movies.. Cant wait to see Shrek 2 on Saturday personally.

Heather Graham has just signed a movie called "CAKE", based on an article called Wedding Bells. Hmmm, those "article movies". Whatever happened to good ole original ideas like Daisy Scarlett or a fourth Die Hard movie, ahem, anyway, this pic is about Heather as a hippy-ish chick who travels around, but winds up taking over her Dad's business, being the Editor of a wedding magazine.

What a hoot that sounds. Bring back Roller Girl.

Troy premieres tomorrow, so hopefully these muthas can dish out some tickets properly unlike today, where i queued for two hours and they decided to let people know you have to book online for film tickets now. Nice. Or is it Neeece? Expect some decent movie news, pics and all that real soon. Hope the producing gig is going well. I'm exhausted by my wee venture.

    He's one of those creeps who watching the Nick Berg tape and said,"That's what you get you arrogant Zionist pig!" Sick stuff, Darth, sick stuff!

    Listen Darth...

    Those types of comments might be fine on your Al Queda affiliated web sites, but they have no place here. I'm glad to see AICN actually deleted your really bad post. I mean I've never heard anybody refer to Nick Berg as being "a pussy for screaming the way he did," but that was just innappropriate for a website meant for enjoying the love we all have for movies and Britney Spears. God she's hot!

    No offense and all, but what the fuck was that? I wanna see HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS and 2046 too. Doesn't make it news.

    Yeah, what the hell was the point of this?

    by wasp

    I saw the title with 2046 and jumped on this, but it just turns out that Trebby says "2046" and nothing more to do with the movie. Then we get a link to some pictures, but that's not even part of Trebby's report, which I basically learned absolutely nothing from except that Trebby would rather see Shrek 2 than the latest Wong Kar Wai or the unbelievably sexy Zhang Ziyi, to which I can only raise my fists to the heavens and wonder why this person is at Cannes and not me. So, I guess, basically, the point of the article was to infuriate me and others of like mind.
