Preview:
Even as the production continues to prepare for a start date in just two months, Paramount has confirmed rumors that Joe Carnahan has stepped aside due to that classic old catch all excuse of "creative differences" (which can mean... a lot of different things). Paramount is reportedly already in talks with several contenders for his job, with expectations (ie, hopes) that Carnahan's departure will not delay production. Paramount really *needs* this movie to stay on course for release next summer, as it is the lynchpin of their entire 2005 slate; their 800 pound box office gorilla; especially now that it appears their first 'John Carter of Mars' project won't be produced in time for 2005 (no preview page for that one yet, but man, I am a huge fan of the series!).

The 'Mission: Impossible' series... not so much, honestly. I thought the first one was "okay", and the second entry was the first sign that John Woo's American movies are generally disappointments compared to his Hong Kong work (not that I was a super-salivatory fan of them either). Having said that, I'm always willing to give an unproduced movie a chance. Here's hoping this will be the M:I movie that makes me a fan. You never know.

Take the Lead

Synopsis: Inspired by a true story, Antonio Banderas stars as internationally acclaimed ballroom dancer Pierre Dulane. The film revolves around a professional dancer who volunteers to teach in the New York City public school system. But when his classic methods clash with his students' hip hop instincts, he teams up with them to create a new style of dance and becomes their mentor in the process. "Take the Lead" co-stars Alfre Woodard and marks the feature directing debut of veteran music video helmer Liz Friedlander.

Review: Antonio Banderas has the moves. So it's a kick to watch him play Pierre Dulaine, the dance teacher who took his skills into New York's public-school system and turned troubled teens into ballroom smoothies. Inspired by a true story (translation: a lot of it is made up), the movie shucks its corn straight from the cob. But it's no less engaging for that, thanks to the enthusiasm of the young cast and the fusion of classic dance with hip-hop moves courtesy of Rich and Tone Talauega. First-time director Liz Friedlander, who did videos for U2 and Blink-182, wisely lets Banderas tango with Katya Virshilas, who'd make anyone sign up for lessons. They're mad hot.
