Shia LaBeouf Is Now Motivating Your Favorite Movie Characters

Shia LaBeouf was in the news a lot last year; the former Disney Channel actor opened up about dropping acid to prepare for a movie role, claimed he was raped during a performance art piece, and was accused of plagiarism after he released a movie that bore a striking resemblance to the graphic novel Justin M. Damiamo by Daniel Clowes. These days, he’s toned down his somewhat odd behavior quite a bit, but he recently took part in an art project that had him performing short pieces submitted to him by art students while standing in front of a green screen. The results have had the web buzzing today after several people used the green screen to make their own projects.

LaBeouf gets particularly into one piece–in which he gives a motivational speech–and it was quickly pasted into several well-known movies, much to the amusement of the web. The actor gives advice to Luke Skywalker, William Wallace, and the audience at a TED talk.

“Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Yesterday, you said tomorrow. So JUST DO IT. MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.”

LaBeouf grabbed headlines earlier this year with his appearance in the Sia video “Elastic Heart”, in which he performed interpretive dance with Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler. Although there were some concerns that the video sexualized Ziegler--who is just 12 years old–it quickly became one of the most watched videos on YouTube and boosted Sia up the charts.

It wasn’t the first time LaBeouf bared his soul–or his body–for a video; a few years ago, he starred in a Sigur Ros video and showed off a good deal of his anatomy.

Liam Neeson: Hesitant About Doing Another “Phone Call” Movie

The 62-year-old star of Taken and Taken 2 revealed that he was hesitant about doing the movie A Walk Among The Tombstones because he didn’t want to do another action role that similar to something he had already done in the past.

“I thought, ‘Here we go, here’s another f**king telephone call, talking to the bad guys.’ So there was this huge question mark before taking it on,” Neeson told Empire Magazine.

Neeson is well known for his role in the Taken movie franchise, where he tries to save his kidnapped daughter. In the movie, he talks to the kidnappers on the phone and says the line, “I will find you and I will kill you.” The scene has boosted his popularity among young moviegoers, including his two sons Micheal and Daniel.

“I have recorded a special voicemail [with Taken quotes] so many times for my kids! And they have to prompt me on the lines, because I forgot them, which is a little embarrassing!” he told Australia radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O. in an interview.

In A Walk Among The Tombstones, which is based on the 1992 crime thriller novel by Lawrence Block, Neeson plays a private investigator who is trying to locate the kidnapped wife of a drug kingpin. He teamed up with writer/director Scott Frank for the production, whose vision prompted Neeson to agree to doing the role despite his reservations.

“He outlined how he wanted to treat it, very noir-ish, allowing scenes to play out, rather than this MTV-edited craze where if a character speaks more than two sentences the editor’s scared or the director’s scared the audience will get bored,” said Neeson of Frank.

Neeson’s wife, Natasha Richardson, died in a skiing accident in 2009, which may have helped the actor prepare for his character in A Walk Among The Tombstones. “”I knew what was required and I can easily access that kind of darkness, you know,” he said.

Which States Like to Talk About Films and Other Social Movie Facts

It’s Friday, which is the perfect time to talk movies. Have you seen any of this summer’s blockbusters? Are there films on your list that you’re still hoping to see before they head to DVD? And more importantly, have you been sharing your movie dreams online?

If, like me, you live in California – then you probably went to the movies but you probably didn’t talk about. If you live in Wyoming, that’s a whole ‘nother story.

According to Share This, folks in the coastal states (the blue ones) tend to watch more movies, but it’s the folks in the central states that talk about movies online.

states that shareAction / Adventure and Sci-Fi movies were the most shared with 2.6x the shares per film as any other category. The most popular film was Iron Man 3. People began sharing blog posts, pics and video trailers a full 40 days before the release and they kept on talking until two weeks after the premiere. Kudos to the PR team that helped initiate that buzz.

Facebook may be the king of social networking but when it comes to movie talk, Twitter reigns supreme. According to Share This 46% of movie conversations happened outside of Facebook. In addition to Twitter, movie fans also like to share by email and Reddit.

In “yeah, that makes sense” news, people who shared movie-related content were 6 times more like to buy movie tickets.

ticket buying

Family oriented and animated films had the biggest lift but Sci-Fi fans also liked to talk then buy.

Sharing Time

Most sharing happens just before the release but moviegoers, unlike the average social media maven, tend to post between noon and 3pm. For the average poster, that spike happens between 7 and 10 in the evening. I say it’s because movie goers are busy watching TV at night, so they post during the day while they’re bored at work.

How do you fit into this picture? Are you a frequent movie-goers or frequent movie-sharer? Why not give your favorite film a boost this week by talking about it online. Write a review, share an article or a photo. Doesn’t have to be a new movie. Share your old movie love, too.

Me? I’ve got Sunset Boulevard on the DVR and I hear Jaws 3 is playing on Encore. That’s me, all over the place.

See you at the movies!

Mobile Movie Lovers Love Movies More Than Anyone Else

Nielsen, the guys famous for cataloging what everyone is watching on TV, just posted some results from their 2012 Moviegoer Report and I have the scoop. I was excited to see these numbers because it’s a little out of the norm. We often see data related to how TV fans are using mobile and social media, but movie stats are tougher to find. So, let’s dig in.

For the purpose of this survey, Nielsen defined a “moviegoer” as a person who saw at least one movie in a theater in the past 12 months. On average, folks in this group didn’t just watch one movie, they watched 6.8 movies in the theater. Here’s where it gets cool: the average moviegoer paid to watch 23.1 movies at home. The survey doesn’t say but I’m assuming this means bought or rented a DVD or paid to watch a movie On Demand or streaming to a PC, etc. That’s a pretty big number, especially when you compare it to free movies which I take to mean airing on regular TV, on YouTube or free On Demand.

Scroll down, past this graphic and we’ll talk some more.

Movie-Consumption-Total

Look at the increase in the numbers when you get into mobile device owners. Smartphone gets us up to an average 40.5 movies a year. Tablet users bring the number up to 46.6. Wow. And it’s not just an increase in movies at home, they even saw more movies in the theater.

Nielsen says tablet owners are also more likely to see a movie more than once and buy their ticket online. They also spend 35% more than the average moviegoer on entertainment every month.

Seriously, movie studios, if you aren’t creating cool promos and apps for tablets, you’re missing out big time.

Moving on to social media:

We know that TV fans love to chat via Twitter and Facebook, but what about moviegoers?

On average, more moviegoers are using social media to discuss movies than ever before. But when you break it down by age, there’s actually a decrease in usage in the 12 to 24 age group. The biggest increase came from the 35-44′s. I couldn’t even begin to figure out why that happened.

Mobile moviegoers are way more likely to send a social media message or a text right after seeing a movie. Logical, given that they have a device that allows them to do so while they’re still in the lobby.

Mobile-Social-Media-Moviegoer

We know about the power of the recommendation but it’s not always true when talking movies. 3 out of 10 moviegoers told Nielsen that comments on their social networks affected their decision to see a movie. This was particularly true of those in the 35 to 44 age bracket. The impact on younger viewers was down 5% over last year.

If you add up everything I saw on TV, Netflix, DVD and in the theater. . . I’d say 3 movies on a slow month, 5 on the high side. . . which puts me somewhere between 40 and 48. Right in the bucket with all the other tablet users. Good job, Nielsen. You got it right.

How many movies did you see on average last year?

New James Bond Movie, “Skyfall,” Gets a Teaser Trailer

James Bond fans are blessed. Since the mid 60′s they have never had to wait more than a handfull of years for the next Bond film. Despite what their opinions of each Bond are, they always line up to see a Bond movie, hoping it will be one of the good ones. Or, if not good, at least not Moonraker.

Sony Pictures has released a teaser trailer for the next James Bond film, Skyfall. Watching the trailer, it’s clear that Skyfall will continue the previous two movies’ tone in which James Bond, played by Daniel Craig, stands brooding and confident rather than suave. This particular movie appears to take its cue from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and looks to be darker than any previous Bond film. Take a look:

Though Skyfall looks exciting, there seems to be an element of James Bond movies that the Daniel Craig Bond movies are missing. Take a look below at the trailer for an early Bond film, Thunderball, and see the difference. The focus was on action and women with different hair colors, which was evidently the best way to tell Bond girls apart in the 60′s. Though Skyfall is certain to have both of these, there is a certain playfulness about a James Bond movie that has been lost. I’m not sure that brooding is a James Bond trait.
