This is so unexpectedly awesome!

The classic animated flick,Yellow Submarine, has been restored and is being brought back to a few select theaters.

A product of the psychedelic culture during the sixties, the film is a cult and classic hit.

Don't judge the movie by its story, though; it's all about the music!

The film features some of The Beatles best hits such as Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, Eleanor Rigby, and Yellow Submarine.

All together now!

We all live in a yellow submarine

Disney Drops Yellow Submarine

Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

Zemeckis Loses Disney For Submarine

Don't worry, though, because it might not be the end of the project.

Disney has dropped Robert Zemeckis' Yellow Submarine, and he's now free to shop the project elsewhere.

Here are some possible reasons why:

Submarine was already facing a few rocky reefs before this weekend. There were budget issues, and a key presentation Zemeckis was to have made before the Beatles heirs kept being pushed back. A December date for the confab was scrapped and never rescheduled. But sources say the disastrous $6.9 million opening for the $150 million-budgeted Mars, produced by Zemeckis, guaranteed that Submarine would never set sail at Disney.

After the news he headed to Montana to regroup, which we don't know if that means to find a new home for Yellow Submarine or choose something else to work on.

While we think it's kind of a neat idea to re-envision Yellow Submarine, we weren't huge fans of Zemeckis' last few movies, and we're not sure if the mo-cap animation itself is solely to blame or if Robert has just lost touch with his talent for a few years because of the animation obsession (and he IS talented, Back to the Future, anyone?).

We'll just have to wait and see!

Are U disappointed that Yellow Submarine has been sunk?

Firestarter Reboot In The Works!

firestarter remake in the works

Amidst so many unnecessary reboots/remakes like Yellow Submarine, here's one we're excited about!

The De Laurentiis Company has started work on a Firestarter reboot, which they're looking to turn into a new franchise. So far, Vacancy screenwriter Mark L. Smith is attached to the project.

The film will be loosely based on the Stephen King novel, which the original film was based on, but they're looking to give the main character "a little more edge."

Here's what Martha De Laurentiis had to say about the new Firestarter:

"We see this as a unique, character-driven thriller with a supernatural edge, based on a timeless concept and enhanced by recent visual effects advances."

We wonder if they'll bring Drew Barrymore on for a cameo.

Are U excited for another Firestarter film? Do U think it's a good idea?

Robert Zemeckis Is Moving Forward With Yellow Subma-remake

robert zemeckis moving forward with yellow submarine remake

At a Back To The Future red carpet event, Robert Zemeckis said that his Yellow Submarine remake was "all ahead full," which sounds like an indicator that he's moving forward with the movie.

While none of this is 100% confirmed, it looks like the movie will be shot in 3D, and the rumored cast is as follows:

-Dean Lennox Kelly (as John Lennon)

-Peter Serafinowicz (as Paul McCartney)

-Cary Elwes (as George Harrison)

-Adam Campbell (as Ringo Starr)

There have been mixed reports about whether or not this movie will actually happen, but given the fact that Zemeckis said the movie was happening so recently, we're inclined to believe it.

We have VERY mixed feelings about this project.

Are U excited about this project? Or do U think it's sacrilegious to remake a movie like this?
