Darren Aronofsky News Blog-(Aronofsky.Net)
Tuesday, September 18, 2007

In case you haven't heard, Darren Aronofsky now has his own official website up, consisting of some pretty cool stuff including a commentary track for The Fountain as well as his own blog (updated by the man himself). This pretty much means this blog is dead, although the remainder of this website is in a relatively precarious position. The site is not really needed, but we do have some interesting pages including our pretty extensive interviews section as well as the only place on the internet detailing Mr. Aronofsky's AFI student film, Protozoa, which I would be a bit reluctant to get rid of.

Thanks to all those who have contributed to the site, sent in leads or heads ups, and just emailed to say hello--your friendliness has been much appreciated!  Now while the future of this site is being decided, stay up-to-date on upcoming Aronofsky films and click over to DarrenAronofsky.Com!

Aronofsky Answers

If you read Jeffrey's earlier post regarding Moviehole's 20 Questions with Darren Aronofsky, perhaps you submitted a question to Darren. Perhaps you were lucky enough to get it answered. Well, either way the answers are now up, so go check it out.

To summarize some of the highlights, Darren mentioned he would one day like to work with Russell Crowe, Black Flies and Lone Wolf and Cub are currently being written, he only intended to write (not  direct) Batman: Year One, and there will be no commentary track on the DVD for The Fountain. But what am I telling you this for? Go read it for yourself!

We'll keep you posted on developments as information becomes available.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
