The Zocalo Today
Welcome and thank you for dropping by. Babylon 5
brought many of us together -- and it remains with us, despite the fact that
is no longer in production. The good thing is that the internet gives a LOT
of ways to stay in touch. Don't be shy. Join in the discussion today or drop
by Facebook or Twitter.
After presenting their animated slate on Friday (August 9), Disney previewed their upcoming live-action movies on Saturday (August 10) at the 2013 D23 Expo. One of the most buzzed-about movies presented was "Maleficent," which star Angelina Jolie helped introduce to the fan convention in Anaheim, Calif.
"Maleficent" is the origin story of the "Sleeping Beauty" villain (Jolie), and will show how she became so hardened and evil. Elle Fanning will portray Princess Aurora.
"The strange thing was people with little kids would visit the set and I would think, 'I'm a Disney character!'" Jolie told the crowd. "I'd go over to the children and say hi, and they would scream and run off. One little boy actually said, 'Mommy, please tell the mean witch to please stop talking to me.'"
One child who wasn't afraid of Jolie while in character? Jolie's real-life daughter Vivienne, who plays the young version of Princess Aurora/Briar Rose. "She was the only 4-year-old who wouldn't scream," Jolie said.
So what drew Jolie to the part in the first place? "I've loved Disney since I was a little girl and my children loved Disney. You know you can bring your kids to a Disney film," Jolie said. "Since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favorite. I was terrified of her, but I was so drawn to her. I wanted to know more about her, know what she was like and who she was. She had this elegance and grace, and yet she was so cruel, Just wonderfully and deliciously cruel."
Jolie actually found out about the upcoming live-action take on Maleficent from her brother, who remembered her fascination with the character when they were children. "I got a call from my brother who said, 'You've got to try to get in on this,'" Jolie said. Looks like she owes her brother a huge thank you.
"Maleficent" hits theaters July 2, 2014.
ONCE UPON A TIME PREVIEW Once Upon a Time fans at D23 Expo were treated to a never-before-seen clip from the season three premiere Saturday.
The upcoming season finds the ABC drama's heroes and villains traveling from Storybrooke to Neverland to retrieve Henry (Jared S. Gilmore). The clip featured Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) given an ominous warning from one of Peter Pan's lost boys, showing viewers that this is not going to be same Pan from children's bedtime stories.
"When Rumplestiltskin lets us know he is someone to be frightened of, I am frightened," co-creator Edward Kitsis told D23 attendees during the panel. "Neverland is the heart of darkness, but they're going into it to save Henry."
Added co-creator Adam Horowitz: "We're putting our own spin on it. It's a little different than what's been seen before."
Season three will be split into two batches of 11 episodes, with the first half focusing primarily on Neverland. Of the season three overarching theme, Horowitz said that while season one was about the characters not knowing their real identity and season two was about them remembering, season three will be about them getting "back to their true selves. What better place then Neverland, where everything is stripped away, for them to confront who they are?"
Meanwhile, the creators also teased romantic sparks between Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and insight, via flashbacks, into how Hook became a pirate.
Belle (Emilie de Ravin) also will return, and the show will introduce Ariel. The creators added that Ursula also is likely to appear -- "but you never know because on the show you never know who is the real Ursula," said Kitsis -- and there is also "a good chance of seeing a guy named Eric," added Horowitz, referring to Ariel's prince beau.
Horowitz and Kitsis also revealed that on their wish list of characters to incorporate into the show is Rapunzel.
"The key is when and how to honor the character and bring something new," Horowitz said.
Meanwhile, D23 attendees also got a look at the 19-minute pilot presentation for Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, the OUAT spinoff that debuts in October. Wonderland follows a young Alice (Sophie Lowe) in Victorian London who tells of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. Like OUAT, Wonderland will feature flashbacks that give more insight into the characters. Unlike OUAT, the first season will feature a complete story arc.
"It will be much like a movie, or like how they went on one mission in Star Trek, and another year it was another mission," Kitsis said.
As for their decision to create an entirely new character -- Alice's love interest, the genie Cyrus (Peter Gadiot) -- the creators likened it to OUAT's Emma, who also was an entirely new creation.
"Alice was curious enough to follow a rabbit into a hole," Kitsis said. "Naturally she would fall in love with a genie -- he's seen many lives, worlds and places. People ruin their lives for wishes. So they're kindred spirits."
While Wonderland is meant to stand on its own -- meaning people new to OUAT need not have seen that show -- OUAT fans will be treated to "crumbs sprinkled" throughout the series, teased Horowitz.
HOW I LIVE NOW
Magnolia Pictures has released the trailer for Kevin Macdonald's doomsday thriller How I Live Now, starring Saoirse Ronan and based on the award winning novel by Meg Rosoff.
Set in the near-future UK, Ronan plays Daisy, an American teenager sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside. Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay). But on the fringes of their idyllic summer days are tense news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. As the UK falls into a violent, chaotic military state, Daisy finds herself hiding and fighting to survive.
The D23 audience was treated to a glimpse into the mysteries surrounding Disney’s “Tomorrowland” as Sean Bailey and filmmakers Brad Bird (director, co-writer, producer) and Damon Lindelof (co-writer, producer) talked about the inspiration of the secrets of the black box, which was featured in a short behind-the-scenes piece screened for the audience about the visionary Walt Disney. Although the audience was buzzing with questions, Bailey remained coy, but then announced a special, surprise “Tomorrowland” exhibit opening in the afternoon on the D23 floor that would reveal the contents of the box and more. Starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy and Thomas Robinson, the action-packed adventure hits theaters December 12, 2014.
SAVING MR. BANKS
Sean Bailey set up the story and talented cast of Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,”the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen, and reminded everyone that “Mary Poppins” is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary. After showing two clips from the movie to the D23 audience, Bailey introduced Jason Schwartzman and B. J. Novak, who portray the famous composing team of Richard and Robert Sherman, respectively, in the film. In a big surprise moment, Schwartzman and Novak welcomed “Mary Poppins” composer Richard Sherman on stage to greet the excited audience. The two talented actors then engaged the crowd in a rousing, confetti-filled, grand finale sing-along performance of “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” the classic song from “Mary Poppins.”
Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” which is directed by John Lee Hancock (“The Blind Side,” “The Rookie”) and produced by Alison Owen, Ian Collie and Philip Steuer. Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith wrote the screenplay.
When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation. For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn’t budge. He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp. It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.
“Saving Mr. Banks” releases in theaters December 13, 2013, limited, December 20, 2013, wide.

SUPER SECRET S.H.I.E.L.D.
There are some pretty typical, established rules when it comes to promoting a new television series — and Marvel is breaking just about all of them when it comes to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The company, along with ABC, has decided not to send out screener copies of the pilot as we head into the fall. What’s that mean? Most critics, unless they caught one of the handful of screenings in recent weeks, will be seeing it for the first time right along with the rest of us when it premieres.
It’s a pretty gutsy move, but it just goes to show the movie-style approach they’re taking with the series. They’d never send out the new Avengers movie beforehand and risk it leaking, so why do it with S.H.I.E.L.D.? Heck, at the latest screening, security confiscated the ABC president’s phone just to be sure no footage could show up online. Now that’s hardcore.
Talking with The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel TV exec Jeph Loeb had a pretty intriguing response when asked why they’re being so secretive about a pilot, and said it’s mostly an effort to recreate the old adage of “appointment TV:”
"What we are trying to do with this show is just bring back some of the urgency of television. While we absolutely welcome the idea of you downloading it or you DVRing it -- because that's the way the people are watching TV -- but wouldn't it be great if we could get back to a place where, at 8 p.m. on Tuesday nights, everybody got together and decided to watch Marvel's Agents of SHIELD so that that social experience is actually one that's immediate as opposed to something that is shared and reshared and spoiled and then unrevealed and all of the other things that go along with it."
There’s no denying all the secrecy has led to an ample amount of buzz, but all we’ve got to say is it better be good after such a long wait. The show premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 24, so we’ll know soon enough.
A beloved Stargate SG-1 star will be heading to Starling City soon as part of Arrow’s second season.
Teryl Rothery, who played Dr. Janet Frasier for seven years on the long-running SG-1 series, has signed on for a 3-4-episode arc in year two of The CW’s hit superhero series.
No word on exactly who Rothery will be playing, though she did tease that the character is “very different” from her previous roles. Could it be related to that Flash spinoff? We have no idea, but we can’t wait to find out.
After several years on SG-1, Rothery’s character grew into a true fan-favorite character. It’ll be nice to see her back in the sci-fi fold.
After the announcement that Harrison Ford has signed on for The Expendables 3 comes the reveal from Entertainment Weekly that Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas will also appear in the film. While there was no mention of Antonio Banderas' role, Gibson is said to play the main antagonist for the film, confirming earlier rumors.
The pair join a cast that currently includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz. The film set to shoot soon in Los Angeles, rumored additional cast members have been said to include Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich, although none have been, as of yet, confirmed.
Both Banderas and Gibson will also appear in Machete Kills, which will be released on October 11. The Expendables 3 will be directed by Patrick Hughes and is scheduled to arrive in theaters on August 15, 2014.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE
eOne Films has debuted an international trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire .
Opening in theaters and IMAX on November 22, the Francis Lawrence-directed sequel stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Woody Harrelson, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amanda Plummer, Lynn Cohen, Patrick St. Esprit, Meta Golding, Bruno Gunn, Alan Ritchson, E. Roger Mitchell, Maria Howell, Stephanie Leigh Schlund, Sam Claflin and Jeffrey Wright. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour' of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
Director James Gray has a lot of experience writing and directing crime-thrillers with The Yards, We Own the Night and Little Odessa all having their share of fans among movie enthusiasts.
Now word comes from Deadline that Gray also has fans at Warner Bros. who have tapped the filmmaker to write and direct a contemporary drama called White Devil, set in the real world of the Chinese Mafia in Boston and a white kid adopted by a Chinese family into that world.
The movie is based on the real case of Dorchester, Mass. resident John Willis, also known as "White Devil John," who was allegedly a ringleader and enforcer within the area's Asian organized crime who was jailed earlier this year for drug-trafficking.
Gray's most recent film The Immigrant, starring Joaquin Phoenix-who has appeared in all of the director's films except for Little Odessa--Marion Cotillard and James Gray, is scheduled for release by The Weinstein Company, and Deadline states that Gray is still attached to the adaptation of David Grann's Amazon adventure tale The Lost City of Z at Paramount and the Fox/New Regency action-thriller The Gray Man.

FIRST EVER BABYLON 5 BOOK PRINTED EXCLUSIVELY IN COLOR
Not just full color, but the actual colors of the sets, costumes and props.

For more information on this magnificant volume, go to b5books.com.
Here is a quote from J. Michael Straczynski about emotions. I had this theory that the more important and intimate the emotion, the
fewer words are required to express it.
First it's in dating: "Will you go out with me?" Six words.
"Honey, I care for you." Five words.
"You matter to me." Four words.
"I love you." Three words.
"Marry me." Two words.
But what's left? What's the one most important and intimate word you can ever
say to somebody? It's "goodbye."
While Michael O'Hare (Sinclair), Andreas Katsulas (G'Kar), Rick Biggs (Dr. Franklin), Tim Choate (Zathras) and Jeff Conoway (Zach Allen) are no longer with us, we will not forget their wonderful personalities and talent -- as well as their significant contributions to the BABYLON 5 universe. Be sure to visit In Memory Of for more information about memorial efforts. Until we met again, in a place where no shadows fall.
