BLEACH

About.com Manga spoke with VIZ Productions Head of Production Jason Hoffs about the upcoming film, mentioning the early involvement of "Heroes" star Masi Oka.

"VIZ Productions teamed up with Masi Oka early in the process. Masi is a huge fan of Bleach, and a true otaku," Hoffs told About.com. "Early on, we had many discussions with Shueisha and Kubo-sensei about the creative direction of the film. Masi had worked with Pete Segal and his partner Michael Ewing on Get Smart, and Masi brought Bleach to Pete. The writer, Dan Mazeau had been on everybody's radar, so when he committed we were all thrilled. Once the team was assembled, we approached Warner Brothers."

JOHN CARTER

The John Carter Files posted a fan-made trailer for the upcoming film seeing approval from director Andrew Stanton. Check out the impressive fan-made trailer below.

PROMETHEUS

Bleeding Cool has posted a translation of a Ridley Scott quote, courtesy of AVP Galaxy from director Ridley Scott clarifying Guy Pierce's role in "Prometheus" as well as the film's connection to "Alien."

"When the first 'Alien' movie and 'Blade Runner' were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies," Scott said. "This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in 'Blade Runner,' and Weyland-Yutani in 'Alien.' They sent the Nostromo spaceship. The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well."
