From CGee re TN3D: Tamara found information on a NYC premiere. They are auctioning off tickets at eBay (which I’m sure will go for a pretty penny) but it looks as if there will be a premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday, Nov. 9 at 7PM

It's Halloween, one of the oldest holidays in the Western European tradition, invented by the Celts, who believed Halloween was the day of the year when spirits, ghosts, faeries, and goblins walked the earth. The tradition of dressing up and getting candy probably started with the Celts as well. Historians believe that they dressed up as ghosts and goblins to scare away the spirits, and they would put food and wine on the doorstep for the spirits of family members who had come back to visit the home. - Thanks to The Writer's Almanac

Cinema Blend: Paul Haggis Plans To Remake Spanish Thriller Celda 211 -- Paul Haggis, the mastermind/monster behind Crash and the equally earnest In the Valley of Elah, is apparently repurposing himself as an action director. Coming up in a few weeks he's got The Next Three Days, in which Russell Crowe learns how to use a gun and busts his wife out of prison, and now Deadline reports he's considering a remake of the Spanish thriller Celda 211, which swept their Oscar-equivalent Goya Awards last year. - Thanks, Kris C

Wrenster Film reviews: The Next Three Days Review -- "Elizabeth Banks, usually known for her comic roles, gets to play straight as the wife and she holds herself well but this is Crowe's show and he is on outstanding form. Playing the everyman he actually looks like a man on the edge and he commands the screen. You emote with him, you wonder if his plan will work and you sometimes want him to stop but you can also understand why he does what he does. It is a superb performance." - Thanks, Steph

Time out chicago.com: CIFF 2010: Last chance, plus a brief word on the surprise screening, The Next Three Days -- "Last night was the festival’s now-annual surprise screening, and simply as a surprise, it turned out to be pretty decent. Unlike the previous two years’ mystery films (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and RocknRolla), Paul Haggis’s The Next Three Days (opening November 19) hadn’t already played at half the festivals in the world. I hated Haggis’s Crash, and The Next Three Days—a remake of a 2008 French film known in English as Anything for Her—suffers from some of the same hectoring, on-the-nose dialogue and preposterous plotting; the story concerns a Pittsburgh professor (Russell Crowe) who decides to break his seemingly innocent wife (Elizabeth Banks) out of jail. But the film is also quite watchable in a guilty pleasure sort of way. Haggis really needed to shed some of his pretensions, and so a paperback-potboiler exercise like this one—privileging simple momentum over any kind of specious, Grand Statement on the criminal justice system—seems like a step in the right direction for him. More on the movie when it’s released next month." - Thanks, Steph

IMDb - Next Three Days Message Board - Spoiler free - "Firstly its worth mentioning that there is stellar central performance from Russell Crowe. I've never been convinced by him as an actor but this might be one of the years finest performances for me. The role of a desperate, justice-seeking husband is so easy to overcook and the more I think about it the more impressed I am with the subtlety in which Crowe handles the character." - Thanks, Maria

Obsessed with film: Matt Harlock, co-director of AMERICAN: THE BILL HICKS STORY - “Russell Crowe owned the rights for a number of years. He bought them from the family and was developing a script for years and he was going to play Hicks, but he couldn’t quote get the script right so in the last six months he returned the movie rights to the family - Thanks, Steph

Related: Popwatch EW (Peter Weir): " His last film was the underrated Russell Crowe sea-faring drama Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World all the way back in 2003, so I was eager to catch the trailer for his latest, The Way Back, a drama about prisoners—including Ed Harris, Colin Farrell, and Jim Sturgess—escaping from a 1940 Siberian gulag. It’s a rousing clip with the kind of elements I’ve come to love from Weir: throwback adventure, mixed with high emotional stakes." - Thanks, Steph

From Russell on Dani's "Wish I'd been Here." --"This isn't a revised version as such, it is the finished version. Post production on the clip fell just as I started to travel for Robin Hood press . The clip reached a certain point in the cut and there was pressure for it to be available while Dani was in the UK ,so there were  post production idea's that were sacrificed to meet that date. This is the same cut colour corrected with the story elements of traveling between worlds emphasized." - RC

Comingson.net: Interview -- Man with the Iron Fist Director, Wu-Tang Impresario RZA --- CS: Can you talk about casting Russell Crowe in the film, and also about what you're looking for in the rest of your cast? I don't know if you can confirm any of the other casting choices, but in terms of international possibilities, what sort of performers are you looking for? --- RZA: I would love to bring these worlds together. That's what I'm striving to do. My budget is not as big as some of these movies, so I've got to pull a lot of favors. Another buddy who is on board is Dave Batista, the world wrestling champion who left and now he's into Strikeforce and he's going to be doing mixed martial arts. To have him come on as Glass Body, when I talked to him about it, he was like, "I always wanted to be The Toad in 'Five Deadly Venoms,'" and I said, this isn't The Toad but the character is very similar, and he said it would be his honor to do it. So to have him and Russell Crowe standing beside each other, two men, real men, is exciting. But I'm looking to make this an international thing that brings both worlds under one umbrella and get out a good piece of art - Thanks, Ismail

The Sun-Herald 03 October 2010 -- Russell Crowe took his boys, Charlie and Tenny, to see the Great Moscow Circus http://www.moscowcircus.com.au/ at Rose Bay's Lyne Park and caused a "commotion" among the audience, says S's spy, posing as fairy floss on a stick. It wasn't just the audience in a flap even the contortionists, aerial stuntmen and acrobats lined up for photos with the megastar. "We had to drag them away from him so we could start the show!" the ringmaster said. Apparently, all three "thrill-seeking" Crowes enjoyed the performance.

Thanks to Elizabeth Banks at Twitter - Moviefone: 'The Next Three Days' Trailer: Russell Crowe Breaks Elizabeth Banks Out of Jail

From the past --- Time Hollywood Covers - Crowe in command - It is mentioned in the article that RC's copy of Nelson: Love & Fame was almost in tatters - -- He laughs, but there it is, next to several dozen more sophisticated volumes on naval history, one of which-- Nelson: Love & Fame, (now also available at Kindle Books) by Edgar Vincent -- is almost in tatters. Admiral Nelson is mentioned only briefly in the film, yet Crowe highlighted and Post-it-noted the text like a grad student. "I wanted to have an intimate knowledge about Nelson," he says. "I wanted to feel the sense of him, because Jack served with him as a very young man, at least that's the legend of the fictitious character. None of this research is a burden," he adds. "I'm just inquisitive."

The IMDb: Year in review - 2001 ---- Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind, a biopic starring Russell Crowe, comes under fire for not owning up to all the facts about its protagonist, mathematician John Nash. Universal cries foul, saying it's a plot to rob the movie of the Best Picture Oscar, and rumors fly that Miramax and the Weinsteins are behind it all! No worries - it wins anyway.

Found while searching for Damon Runyon related stuff - Awesomestories.com -- The Cinderella Man Story - "At the end of the fifteenth round (the video is of the actual bout), the judges reached unanimous agreement: James J. Braddock was the new heavyweight champion of the world. It was, by all accounts, the biggest upset in boxing history." -- The Joe Louis Fight: by the end of the seventh round it was almost the midnight hour for the Cinderella Man. Gould wanted to stop the fight. Jim refused. I want to go out like a champion. I want to be carried out. He got his wish in the next round. In eighty-four prior fights, Jim Braddock had never been knocked out. He went out in a flourish (this video includes the actual knock-out) and never fought again, except for one match with Tommy Farr.

Scottfeinberg.com: YOUR GUIDE TO FOLLOWING THE 2010 AWARDS RACE… ON TWITTER! - Scroll for TN3D - "...I spoke with several high-level studio publicists for this post and they uniformly agree that, for better or worse, Twitter stands at the edge of a new frontier for awards campaigning. They tell me that having their talent on Twitter offers them an increased ability to spread a message (positive reviews, official trailers, listings of theater locations, etc.), but also a decreased ability to control it (one spontaneous, ill-judged Tweet can generate more publicity than any calculated announcement ever could.) For better or worse, Twitter is here to stay, and those who use it and want to monitor the latest awards season developments could do a lot worse than to Follow the following contenders and pundits…"
