One more day
Topic: The Fountain

Get the word out!  The Fountain hits theaters in one more day and (perhaps appropriately) if you have been looking forward to this film as long as I have then today may seem like an eternity.

As you wait to quench your thirst on the waters of the Aronofsky film that has been so many years in the making, read this brief interview from news@nature.com with Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel about science, spirituality and how they both relate to death.

Aronofsky talks about the critical reaction to the film, petri-dish special effects, and so much more at A.V. Club and if that's not enough there is an article at CNN.com about the film, its history and origins, and a few more words about The Fountain from the man himself.

Updated: Super-interviewer and site friend Daniel Robert Epstein lets us know that he has a new interview up with Aronofsky at Suicide Girls.

Aronofsky, Mansell, and More

Town Online offers an interview with Darren Aronofsky where he shares his thoughts on making smart and challenging movies, as well as his latest which will be released in less than a week.

Film.com has a posted two parts of an interview with Darren.  The first includes discussion of future projects as well as the past that might have been, while the second portion focuses on The Fountain, including the departure of Brad Pitt and discovery of Hugh Jackman for the lead.

There is an article at Reuters about The Fountain discussing the scaling down of an epic budget.

Catch a glimpse of The Fountain at IESB.net where they have posted 9 short clips from the film.

If you haven't seen them already, both Darren Aronofsky and Clint Mansell have MySpace pages.  Darren's is geared heavily toward promoting The Fountain, including an unconventional yet surprisingly insightful and personal blog documenting screenings in different cities.  Clint's has a bevy of information about film's Soundtrack, including a link to a website that offers fans a chance to upload their own remixes of a portion from the score performed by Kronos Quartet and Mogwai.

Beyond The Fountain
In the film industry, it is never too soon to talk about your next project.  According to a brief article at Dark Horizons, although Darren Aronofsky continues to develop Flicker, his next will either be a big-budget biblical epic or a smaller more intimate film.

Topic: The Fountain

The Fountain comes out the the 22nd of November so if you aren't excited, we're not really sure what's wrong with you.  If you need some Fountain related goodies to feed your needs you may want to check out Wire's indepth article about the movie or (if you haven't been in a while) head on over to the official website, which (in Aronofsky film tradition) provides a cool little cyber world to wander around.

Aronofsky.Net will now be kicking into high gear for the release of the film and my friend Jeffrey will be joining us to make up a tri-threat of unstoppable Aronofsky bloggers.  Be prepared!

Moriarty Raves About The Fountain
Topic: The Fountain
Moriarty over at AICN has his review up for the The Fountain. Moriarty has covered the hell out of this flick from the start with his impassioned script review many years back to his more recent fawning set visit. I suppose it's no surprise that he loved the film, but if any of you out there are looking for a spoiler-filled movie review to get you even more amped up for The Fountain, then click the above link.

Full Length Fountain Trailer

The full-length trailer for The Fountain has just been released. If you want to see it in theaters, it's playing with Lady in the Water, although you can just  click the link to watch it now.

Also, we seem to have forgot to include a link to Chud's raving review last week, so for those who haven't read it, do so immediatly.

It seems that the comments feature still hasn't been fixed (which is a shame, 'cuz I'd love to know what you guys think about the trailer), so I'll start getting ready to move the blog to a new host (which is gonna be a pain) when I have time.

New Fountain One Sheet
Topic: The Fountain

We've got a new poster for The Fountain via Aint it Cool News and Jo Blo. Where as the  one that Aaron linked to last update seemed to stress the romantic aspect to the film, this one seems to more heavily highlight the scifi component of the movie. It'll certainly be interesting to see which direction the studio takes the marketing of the film. 

 

Also, we know that the blog's comments have not been working (our hosting service's problem, not ours--we swear) and we will attempt to remedy the problem. If we cannot get comments back, we will find a new host for the blog. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Fountain Poster(s)
Topic: The Fountain
If you're like me you've probably been waiting to see a poster (or anything) from The Fountain for quite some time now. Well wait no longer because now there are a few! Head over to GreekGeek to see the posters being displayed at Amsterdam's Cinema Expo. Scroll down through other lesser movies to see them all.

Also if you were unlucky enough to not catch Aronofsky in the documentary Edge of Outside about independent film it will be on again July 19, 11:00 PM on Turner Classic Movies.

More Reviews For The Fountain (And Maybe A Release Date)
Topic: The Fountain
There has been another screening of The Fountain and that means more reviews. I want to keep completely spoiler free myself so I'm not reading them, but if you want, head over to Ain't It Cool and Joblo and give them a gander.

Oh, and by the way, IMDb has now listed the release date as October 2006. Is it right? Maybe.

The Fountain Not Showing At Cannes
Topic: The Fountain
Apparantly Variety jumped the gun the other day when they reported that The Fountain was chosen for the Cannes film festival. Variety has now unveiled the official selections and unfortunately, The Fountain is not one of them. It's disappointing I know, but hey, I wasn't going to be there anyway.
