With the release of ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ on the horizon, Air New Zealand has revealed this pretty awesome Smaug “plane wrap”. This Boeing 777-300 aircraft, with the 54 metre dragon emblazoned on both sides, was unveiled in Auckland this morning, making New Zealanders the first in the world to see it.
The airline had been in discussions for some time around permission to feature Smaug on the “flying billboard” ahead of the release of ’The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,’ Air New Zealand chief executive Christopher Luxon said. “For our partners to allow Air New Zealand to reveal their star to the world is a huge privilege. We worked with Weta Digital, which designed the graphic especially for us for this purpose.”
The movie industry in North America enjoyed its most prosperous Thanksgiving on record as ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ and Disney’s ‘Frozen’ turned in fantastic performances, each earning more than any previous holiday title. Any celebration, however, has certainly been muted by the death of the much loved actor Paul Walker.
In its second week of release, ’The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ grossed $110.2 million over the five-day holiday (Wednesday-Sunday), becoming the top Thanksgiving title of all time after sailing past the $82.4 million earned by ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.’ For the weekend itself, the sequel bagged $74.5 million – the fourth best second weekend in history after ‘The Avengers’ ($103.1 million), ‘Avatar’ ($75.6 million) and ‘The Dark Knight’ ($75.2 million).
Paul Walker, star of the ‘Fast and Furious’ films, tragically died on Saturday in a single-car accident and explosion. He was 40. It is being reporting that the actor died in a car accident and explosion in Santa Clarita, just north of Los Angeles. The actor was riding in a Porsche that lost control for an unknown reason and hit a post or tree before bursting into flames. Walker was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the relief effort for the Philippines typhoon. At this point, it is unclear what caused the accident.
The identity of the other victim of the crash has not yet been disclosed. UPDATE #2: The driver has been identified as Roger Rodas, a well-respected financial adviser and the CEO of Walker’s company Always Evolving (the duo met because of their shared passion for cars). Our condolences to Rodas’ loved ones.
The official Paul Walker Facebook page has posted the following: “It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. -#TeamPW”

Shortly after Marvel (finally) confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will make her debut as Scarlet Witch in’ Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ the actress talked to AintItCool on the press campaign for ‘Oldboy’ about the role. “She’s nuts, she’s crazy. She has more things wrong with her than any character I’ve ever played. She can tell you where an object has been, she can tell you what your future is, she can connect with the dead and people from other universes, and she’s the only person in this universe who’s capable of doing that. She’s unbelievable; it’s so cool. I grew up loving ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Lord of the Rings,’ and anything that has this other type of world or universe to it is so fun.”
Elizabeth Olsen also talked a bit about her character in ‘Godzilla,’ for which she co-stars opposite her ’Avengers: Age of Ultron’ brother, Aaron Taylor-Johnson. “It’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s film, but the ensemble, we all are somehow connected to Aaron’s character, He’s the root, and I play his wife and I’m the person who holds down the San Francisco prospective of it all. I’m a nurse and I work trying take care of this chaos. ‘Godzilla’ is just so deserving of a good American remake, and I really hope we did it and I really feel like we did.”
New International Trailer For Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’ – Starring Russell Crowe, Ray Winstone, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson…
Paramount Pictures has unveiled this second international trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s epically-scaled retelling of the biblical story ‘Noah.’ Set for a March 28th, 2014 release, Ray Winstone will play the role of the nemesis to Russell Crowe’s eponymous hero. Emma Watson plays Ila, a young woman who develops a close relationship with Noah’s son, Shem. That role will be played by Douglas Booth, with Logan Lerman playing Noah’s other son, Ham. Jennifer Connelly plays Noah’s wife, Naameh. Anthony Hopkins is playing Methuselah, while Kevin Durand is playing a giant who helps Noah and his family. The likes of Dakota Goyo, Mark Margolis, and Madison Davenport co-star.
Darren Aronofsky is the man behind some of my favorite films of the last twelve years in ‘The Wrestler,’ ‘The Fountain,’ ‘Requiem for a Dream,’ ‘Pi’ and ‘Black Swan’ – fingers crossed ‘Noah’ adds to that list. ‘Noah’ is Aronofsky’s follow up effort to the Oscar-nominated and hugely profitable ‘Black Swan,’ which grossed $315 million worldwide on a $12 million budget. The synopsis for ‘Noah’ is as follows: “NOAH is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood.”
