Colour me red. I was up past my bedtime too. You may well be right, but it doesn't quite look right for Taika either? If it is him, the photo must have been taken immediately after arriving at Sundance. There was another director there who looks quite a lot like him...Oh well, never mind.


Aha, mystery solved. It's Taika, but the shot is from 2005. No wonder the hair and beard didn't match this year's pictures.

*Now* I can sleep in peace.

Thanks for that - I read it just in time to catch a repeat on Nightline.
An extended version of the interview is also available for online viewing on TV3's website.

There was also a short note in the latest Listener that mentioned that Prime TV have bought the forthcoming FOTC HBO series for showing in NZ. (Apologies if that's old news, I haven't looked in the other sections of this message board to see.)

If you haven't looked for a month or two, the film website has been updated with a new trailer and blog video..

Finally, we had the Cast'n'Crew showing a couple of weeks ago.. In spite of being so familiar with the story and knowing all the people in it, I found myself immersed in the film and was moved to tears at the end. The current word is still that it may be in the NZ Film Festival in July, and will be generally released in August.

Regards...

Hi Don, nice to see you again :)

I had written a new update a few days ago (just been lazy and not updated it online :P ) about TV3 being interested in picking up the HBO series over there. It had been reported anyways. If its gone to Prime is that a cable channel? Subscription? And can you take a pic of the Listener snippet per chance?

I've been updating the main site with all the Eagle vs Shark news on its own page. Pretty muche everything is there :) Including the blog vid IIRC

And cool about the Cast'n'Crew showing. Glad you enjoyed it. I'll be sure to mention the possible release for Ev S in NZ in the main news update :)

To get Prime you just have to buy a UHF aerial, about $100, no subscription or anything. I think most people have it, but I'm not sure - where I live you need a decent aerial to pick anything up.

The full text of the column in which it appears will be online on the Listener website as of Saturday 14th (it's just gone mignight, it's available now):
<http://www.listener.co.nz/issue/3492/artsbooks/8590/like_whatever.html>

As others have pointed out, Prime is one of the base set of channels on Sky. It's also available "free to air" on UHF (channel number varies by region). So if all else fails, just invite yourself round to a friend who has Sky TV.

Hi everyone!

Last weekend I attended a sold-out screening of Eagle vs Shark at the 2007 Philadelphia Film Festival. The film was rated four stars (out of five) on the Festival website. It was also selected as a Festival Favorite, which meant that an extra screening was added to the schedule.

I thought the storyline moved along at a good pace, and the film was an appropriate length. It would've been nice to have seen a little more interaction between Jarrod and his young daughter, even if it was just a short scene. Perhaps something where she sets him straight about women might have been fun.

Overall, there were many funny lines and scenes, as well as a few surprises. The Phoenix Foundation did a marvelous job with the film score, and every song fit its respective scene. I'm already looking forward to the soundtrack. (And the audio commentaries on the DVD, naturally!) Anyway, my best suggestion is to put aside any comparisons with other recent independent films and let this one stand on its own merit. Everyone who worked on the movie can be proud of their efforts, as the end result was thoroughly enjoyable.

I went to see the movie "Waitress" last weekend (highly recommended, btw) and one of the previews/trailers was for Eagle vs Shark. So odds are likely that it will be showing in Austin. I'm a sporadic moviegoer but this one looks worth my time for a weekend matinee :wink: .

To find out the initial screening dates and theatres for the US, go to the film's website (www.eaglevsshark.net) and select "screenings". First showing in Austin:

06/20 7:30 pm Landmark Dobie, 2021 Guadalupe

There are two other Austin theatres listed for subsequent dates.

Thanks Don. I was feeling lazy earlier and didn't check out the film website myself :wink: .
The Dobie is a great movie theater ; the screening rooms are more intimate and it doesn't feel like a cold megaplex.
So I checked out the film website and I now have a ticket to the June 20th screening at the Dobie. :D
