Evan Almighty on HD DVD

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

HD DVD Movie : Evan Almighty

Genre: Comedy

Evan Almighty (also known as Bruce Almighty 2) is a comedy movie directed by Tom Shadyac and was released by Universal Pictures in 2007 which stars Steve Carell, Lauren Graham, and Morgan Freeman.

It uses CGI for the numerous animals and the climactic flood scene (based on the Bible's "great flood" and "Noah's ark") that made Evan Almighty "the most expensive comedy movie produced."


Movie Synopsis:

Buffalo newscaster Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) has changed his career path and was elected as Washington congressman. His campaign was "Change the World" but actually ignoring that idea. When he moved his family to Virginia, he prayed and ask for guidance on their new home. The next morning, weird things happened to him in which he had a strange encounter with God (played by Morgan Freeman) commanding him to build an ark just like Noah did thousands of years ago and fill it with animals to protect them from forthcoming flood.

Evan is dubious about it and thought that he is just under a lot of stress, but unexpected events made him accept the task God told him, risking his career, family and reputation.


Movie Trivia:

  • Evan Almighty is supposed to be Bruce Almighty 2 but Jim Carey and Jeniffer Aniston both declined to reprise their roles on the project.
  • Director Tom Shadyac considered Steve Carell, who has a successful movie The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and agreed to play the lead role in the project by reprising the role of Evan Baxter, this time the lead character of Shadyac's project; changing the title to Evan Almighty.
  • Lisa Kudrow is one among the several actresses that has been considered to play the role as Evan's wife.
  • It is the most expensive comedy movie ever made as of June 2007. The movie has a budget of $175 million.
  • In a scene where God appears to Evan in the back of his car, Evan screams and God replies "Let it out, son. It's the beginning of wisdom" - it is related to Proverbs 1:7: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
  • The phone number on the wood delivery trucks (800)-GO-4-WOOD is a working number to promote the movie.

300, released in 2007, is based on a graphic novel "300" written by an American comic book writer, Frank Miller. It is a fictionalized retelling of the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae in Greece.

The main casts of the movie are Gerard Butler (as King Leonidas of Sparta), Lena Headey (as Queen Gorgo - Leonidas' wife), David Wenham (as Dilios - Narator and Spar
tan soldier), Rodrigo Santoro (as King Xerxes of Persia), Tyler Neitzel (as Young Leonidas), Giovani Cimmino (as Pleistarchos - Leonidas' son), and Vincent Regan (as Captain Artemis - Leonidas' friend).


Movie Synopsis:

In 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae in Greece, King Leonidas of Sparta led his 300 chosen army against the massive Persian warriors and
their King, Xerxes of Persia. The Spartans may be outnumbered by the Persians but their skills and valor played a key role to match the Persians despite their supremacy to gain the world's first democracy. The battle is said to have inspired all of Greece to band together against the Persians.


The movie is a portrayal of a role played by the heroic Spartans to achieve the freedom from the Persians .


Movie Trivia:

  • Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. wanted this film to have a PG-13 rating but director Zack Snyder refused to do it until the film producers agreed to make it an R-Rated movie.
  • Zack Snyder’s son plays young Leonidas in the child fight training scene.
  • Sienna Miller and Silvia Colloca are considered to play the role of Queen Gorgo.
  • The film used the weapons from the previous war epics like "Alexander" and "Troy" to cut production costs.
  • The film doesn't use much CGI graphics. "It's virtual matte paintings. I call it a low-tech movie because it's such a simple concept: putting people in front of painted backdrops. It's like a student film on steroids." - Zack Snyder
  • The CGI elephants used in the movie are expensive. "Our rhinos and elephants were the things that broke the bank. That's why there aren't a lot of them" - said Snyder.
  • The entire principal cast of the movie undergo rigorous physical training to present themselves as a well-trained warrior because the script requires most of the male cast to spend most of their screen time bare-chested based on Frank Miller's novel.
