NM Cover Boy

Posted by on October 3, 2011 | Comments Off on NM Cover Boy

New Mexico’s number one son is kicking butt, taking and naming names!

From his early years, in Hollywood, New Mexico (more commonly known as Ruidoso), to his shot to fame as Doogie Howser, M.D., Neil Patrick Harris’ star only continues to rise.

In a Sept. issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine, New Mexico’s Own lends his writing skills to sharing a HOLLYWOOD survival guide with the world!

NPH says, reveal your personal life, not your private life and as to how to act on a set, “Never be a d-bag to the crew”.

More gems including these excerpts from NPH in his own words to here:

I was very musical at a young age. So much so that Churchill Cooke, our elementary school band and choir director, let me teach parts in the choir when I was in the fourth grade. First I played the xylophone, then marimba, cymbals, French horn, bassoon — I became a sort of jack-of-all-trades. It’s a mindset that I think never really left me. Mr. Cooke would say, “We need an oboe part for this piece, Neil. Learn oboe.” And I would say, “Sure, Mr. Cooke. Who needs friends?”

Mr. Steven Bochco is a very wise man. After a many-monthed nationwide search to find a precocious teenage doctor, he hired me. But I suppose he’s wise for other reasons, too: Right when Doogie Howser, M.D. was beginning, he took my parents and me to a restaurant, sat us down, and said, “A career is like surfing. You paddle out and paddle out and get wet and hit by these waves. When you finally get out where you’re supposed to go, you have to sit on a surfboard for a long time, just waiting. If you’re really lucky, you’ll catch a wave, and it’ll be the most amazing feeling. But the key is that that wave will inevitably crash to the sand. Then what you have to do is paddle back out and get hit by a bunch of waves again. But trust that in the long term there will always be waves to catch.” To a young family from New Mexico, you can imagine our reaction: “What the hell is surfing?” But thinking back, it was a very impressive thing to hear as a kid and, as it turns out, absolutely accurate.

It’s good to have a lot of once-in-a-lifetimes in your lifetime. If you get the chance to skydive, go skydiving. If you’re offered a part in a weird Shakespeare play in San Diego, slap on some tights and rock out some iambic pentameter. If you’re offered the opportunity to have a swastika painted on your ass, glitter on your nipples, and to simulate sex with a man and a woman behind a curtain, go for it… provided it’s Cabaret on Broadway and not in some dude’s basement.

Gracias Precioso

Not Your Kids’ Ho-Hum Vampire

Posted by on August 18, 2011 | Comments Off on Not Your Kids’ Ho-Hum Vampire

Fright Night feels much fresher than a lot of what has come down studio pikes this summer. – Cinema Blend

Just when it seems that every other young Hollywood actor is donning vampire garb, along comes Colin Farrell to show ’em how it’s done.

This decent remake of the ’80s vampire favorite should satiate horror fans. – The Hollywood Reporter

Remake of classic horror flick is killer blend of cheese and snark.
N.Y. Daily News

Re-‘Vamped’ ‘Fright Night’ Boasts Plenty of Scary Bites. – Fox News

‘Fright Night’ is Slick, Sinister and Playful. – Film School Rejects

Farrell’s Frightening, Ferocious, Fangs Saves ‘Fright Night’ Reboot! – Star Pulse

As vampire movies go, Fright Night is a pretty good one. – Roger Ebert, Chronicle Herald

Better still, in Roger’s review he inadvertently gives NM high praise as not only a believable Las Vegas locale but describes the setting as at least somewhat integral to the plot ;)

Wholly NM Film Premiere

Posted by on April 30, 2011 | Comments Off on Wholly NM Film Premiere

Watch the just released, HD theatrical trailer for the largest ever UNM undergraduate student film, HALEY here.

A certain sexy sophisticate, model & socialite a.k.a. one of our roving, undercover contributors brings some upcoming NM Film goodness to the forefront (of this page).

Dare I say it’s Thor, meets The Book of Eli, meets Gamer with a smattering of Sin City and WALL-E.

How you might ask, could one film hold within a semblance of all of thee above.

For that answer you’d have to turn your attention to Enchanted Sky Entertainment, Jason Ponic, Justin Ramsey and the rest of the cast & crew of, Haley.

On May 13, 2011, 10 months after the project began, Haley will make its world premiere at the Kimo Theater in Albuquerque New Mexico at 8:00PM.

For the first time in cinema history, see Albuquerque, New Mexico, destroyed…

Pec-tacular and Toothriffic (I’m sorry)

Posted by on April 27, 2011 | Comments Off on Pec-tacular and Toothriffic (I’m sorry)

If you know me, you prolly know my affinity for pectorals (and shoulders), a certain Spiderman action figure (and a certain hubs)…but I digress with an opportunity to post my personal favorite image released from Dreamworks of the wholly NM Film FRIGHT NIGHT!

Not to be outdone by The Avengers (because I won’t let them), tight as they might be holding to the Fright Night movie trailer or even a teaser, or even a gosh darn official poster, SKG/Dreamworks has teased with a viewing of several clips of 3D footage of the film…and though nary hide nor hair of a New Mexican may have been present for the event we’re still blessed with a new image via CineMovie.tv – ¡woot¡

p.s. Sadly, yes horseradish can be too hot…

Say Say Say Passion Play & Fright Night Style

Posted by on April 18, 2011 | Comments Off on Say Say Say Passion Play & Fright Night Style

While Fright Night holds tight to its official trailer the Wholly New Mexico film that’s destined for a limited release before hitting the DVD bin and Netflix circuit makes a great showing in this theatrical trailer!

Wily willed co-star Mickey Rourke made headlines last week yo-yoing between trashing the flick and reneging to reining-in powerful statements made about his leading lady, the lovely Megan Fox.

Last week Rourke told peeps at a Hollywoo party that PP is just a “terrible, terrible movie” and then later dropped the cool waters of ‘you ain’t all that’ on his previous statements about Fox being one of the most talented actresses of all time, by reemphasizing, “that I’ve worked with” then allegedly adding the patented Mickey Rourke f-you smirk that keeps us all coming back for more no matter what revision of his face we’re confronted with.

Here’s Mick’s rebuttal to the mag that printed his less than stellar review of Passion Play:

“Hey, guys. When I talked to you, I was at a party. It was loud and crowded, I was in a shitty mood and I was trying to get rid of your reporter. Mitch (the director of the movie) is one of my best friends since we were kids. I loved working with him and would do it again tomorrow. I don’t know why I said that stupid shit. I love Mitch, I love Megan. My bad.”

Congrats to all our talented locals that worked on this epic saga!

And whilst we wait to see the official Fright Night trailer here’s what the star of that flick said in front of a crowed screening the film to stick his foot in his gorgeous mouth over his latest Wholly New Mexico Movie:

“Meself, as a fan of the original, it doesn’t change. I don’t think I’ll have a copy of this version in my library, but I have the original at home…” – Colin Farrell

Later explaining to EW “What I meant was [I wouldn’t own it] because I’m in the f-ing thing!” He said he cringes when he watches himself. “It’s always uncomfortable.”

Stir that pot boys! Keep ’em talking, get ’em watching! Go New Mexico Film! And now if you need a warm fuzzy, mosey on over to the eloquence of sexy Olivia Wilde’s love letter to NM here.

Wholly New Mexico Theatrical Release

Posted by on October 14, 2010 | Comments Off on Wholly New Mexico Theatrical Release

As with all the films and productions we catch wind of as purported to come to the Land of Enchantment we hopefully wait and wonder…could it, will it be?

Inhale has come and gone and we’ve simply been anticipating its release. Would it go straight to DVD (à la J.Lo’s Bordertown), hit the festival circuit or sit canned?

Finance and distribution issues abound in the industry and it’s exciting to see when one of our productions is going to get see the light of projector in theaters.

Inhale will be in limited release starting October 22. Woot!

Our little spec on the globe (top right) has been lit up for months with a lot of international blips looking directly at and for Inhale…

Catch this wholly New Mexico flick and the many more coming soon

Let In Los Alamo

Posted by on October 1, 2010 | 2 comments

UPDATE 10/03/10: NM in the top TEN. As of this afternoon NM’s Own, Wholly NM film Let Me In comes in at #8 for the weekend Box Office take! Raking in ~$5,300,000 opening on just over 2,000 screens! Woot!

The headlining pasty white vamps, creepish villains and blood-let victims of our long chronicled Wholly New Mexico film Let Me In may not be ready to hit the red and yellow carpet, but a premiere party will go on for the local extras, cast & crew in Los Alamos today:

“The Overture film, “Let Me In” premiers at the Reel Deal Theater on Friday with two showings; one at 6:50 p.m. and the other at 9:15 p.m.
Los Alamos County will co-sponsor a “red carpet” premiere with the Reel Deal for “Let Me In,” which will features prizes and special giveaways.
The movie was filmed in Los Alamos nearly a year ago and features several local community members, including teens from the middle and high schools. Staff from the county’s film office will serve free cake and punch in the lobby before each showing and have giveaways from the movie distribution company, such as copies of the book that was the basis of the film “Let the Right One In,” plus free movie posters.
Not only was “Let Me In” filmed in Los Alamos, but the actual town in the movie is Los Alamos. Many local residents were hired as extras and some of the kids in the film are wearing their ‘Topper High School letter
jackets with LA emblazoned on them.
The film has received rave reviews on all fronts and the Internet movie site, Rotten Tomatoes, scored it the highest at 100 percent. Some of the locations included in the filming were the high school, Barranca Mesa, the culvert at the roundabout, Ashley Pond and the ice rink
Expect long lines and sold out shows so buy your tickets early and arrive at the theater well in advance of your show time.”

NM Takes Toronto

Posted by on September 14, 2010 | Comments Off on NM Takes Toronto

This Wholly New Mexico film has one supremely creepy movie poster. Love it?

The forthcoming redux of the Swedish horror Let The Right One In by Hammer films is one bloody NM production. Let Me In premiered last night at the Toronto Film Festival.

Scheduled for wide’ish release on October 1. Click here for full ©Sindication coverage of the production and the official trailer.

The Wholly New Mexico film Passion Play also premiered to some harsh reviews last night in Toronto – but it seems that Bill Murray manages to win high praise overall.

Mayhaps pre-come wide(r) release we will get to roll out the red & yellow for our own NM premieres of these flicks…

Wholly New Mexico Film

Posted by on May 19, 2010 | One comment

Out of what is considered a shoestring budget of just $10M comes the Universal Studios release of the SNL based MacGruber.

Like fellow low budget, wholly NM film fare turned Oscar winner Crazy Heart, Mac’s Nuevo México backdrops lend our SW charm to the overall look and feel of the flick – whether doubling for downtown Houston or a nuclear bomb test field (hey wait a minute, oh yeah).

Mac may not be headed to the Academy, it is opening to low expectations – in the face of a perceived SNL movie curse, but hopefully it can make a dent in the box office this weekend and the Wholly New Mexico film train will get another boost.

With a tag line like, “MacGruber – The Ultimate Tool” and promises of “vulgar, crude, ridiculous, silly and very, very funny” how can we help but to get our Grube on!

From SXSW Music+Film+Interactive in Austin, TX director Jorma Taccone disclosed that it is indeed Will Forte taking to the keys to tweet as MacGruber, keep up with the silly now at Grubes69.

Mac opens wide this Friday!
