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.

The Fountain Screens
Topic: The Fountain
The Fountain was shown last night in LA at a test screening Warner Bros. conducted to see how to best market the film. And, well, I'm not sure how to feel about this. Jealous? Excited? Maybe surprised, 'cause you know I think I may have subconsciously had doubts that this movie was ever made, like it all may have been some big hoax. Well apparently it is real and finished. Pat P. sends us some comments about the film from AICN, Walter's Thoughts and the IMDb Message Board. Click those links for more.

If anyone else caught the flick, feel free to send in any reactions...we'd love to hear from you!

Update: Moviehole gives us another positive review.

The Fountain at Cannes?
Topic: The Fountain
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that The Fountain is being "strongly considered" by the Cannes festival committee as one of this year's films. Will this come to fruition? We can only hope.

We would also like to congratulate the co-star of The Fountain, Rachel Weisz, for her Best Supporting Actress Oscar win for her role in The Constant Gardener!

Aronofsky Not 'Lost', But 'Flicker' is Next Flick?
Topic: Flicker
Pat P. let's us know that Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Darren Aronofsky will unfortunatly not be able to film an episode of hit television show Lost this season, despite previous reports. However there is still hope that Aronofsky (a big fan of the show) will be able to do an episode sometime next season. "The timing didn't work out," Aronofsky tells EW. "I'm expecting a child."

The article also mentions that Flicker, an adaptation of Theodore Roszak's thrilling novel, is set to be Darren's next film. I've heard from a bunch of you guys out there and I know that a lot of you are really anticipating Aronofsky's adaptation of this book, so this will be good news for you all. For those who are clueless as to the details or history of the project, go check out this story from our news archives.

New Fountain Pic, Plus Requiem Parody
Topic: The Fountain

I actually meant to post this earlier in the day, but here it is just a few hours late: Latino Review gives us a glimpse of an all new and especially cool looking picture from The Fountain. Click the image on the right for a closer view. Now tell me, does this pic help hold you over until the film's release or does it just make you even more anxious?

Also, a couple of people have alerted us (thanks guys!) about a pretty funny and well made Requiem For A Dream parody online. If you have a couple of minutes, be sure to check out Toy Story 2: Requiem.

The Fountain Nears Completion
Topic: The Fountain
IESB recently conducted a red carpet video interview with Aronofsky's fiancé and Fountain co-star Rachel Weisz. Weisz let word slip that Darren is currently completing sound mixing on the film and that the movie should be "totally finished in about a week."

We at Aronofsky.Net make an effort never to report on any rumors about Darren Aronofsky's personal life. However, Weisz and Aronofsky have officially announced that Weisz is five months pregnant. I'd like to end this post by saying congratulations to both!

Three Fountain Interviews
Topic: The Fountain
Daniel Robert Epstein lets us know that three interviews he conducted with crew members on the set of The Fountain are now online thanks to UGO.Com. The interviews are with Director of Photography Matthew Libatique, Producer Eric Watson and Production Designer James Chinlund. I was going to put some quotes up from the interviews, but honestly they're excellent in their entirety and you all should read 'em for yourselves. Click the links above for the three interviews.

Also, I noticed that Watchmen, the adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel, which once had Aronofsky attached as director, is now alive at Warner Bros. Although, there is no word on whether Aronofsky may return as the project's helmer, I thought that readers may at least want to know that the possibility exists.

More Graphic Novel News, Plus King Kong Premiere
Topic: The Fountain
Once again, Pat P and John M keep us updated on The Fountain graphic novel info. It seems that Vertigo has updated their site with a summary of the graphic novel along with a downloadable preview of the book as well as a downloadable mini-poster.

In some miscellaneous news, The New York Times reports that Darren Aronofsky attended the premiere of Peter Jackson's King Kong. The NYT caught up with Mr. Aronofsky at an after-party in which the filmmaker said, "It was a very sad movie." He then joked that, "it doesn't put me in the party mood. I’m going to go give money to the WWF or the Nature Conservancy."

Great Graphic Novel Buzz
Topic: The Fountain
Some excellent reviews of Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain graphic novel have popped up around the net.
Broken Frontier claims the graphic novel "is infinitely superior in story and art to anything superhero books have produced in years and it gets deeper and deeper with each successive reading."
The Comics IGN reviewer writes that "if [The Fountain film] carries the soul of the graphic novel, it may just be one of the best movies of 2006."
Meanwhile, the Nashville City Paper raves that the graphic novel is "a fascinating, moving account of love, life and death...a true example of what comics can do, melding words and pictures together to tell a story unique to the medium."
In related news, Newsarama has a great new interview up with Aronofsky about the graphic novel and a little about the film as well. Head on over and check it out.
(Thanks to 'Pat P' and 'John M' for the heads up!)
