The Fountain on HD DVD

Thursday, October 4, 2007
HD DVD Movie : The Fountain

Genre : Sci-Fi | Fantasy

The Fountain is a science fiction / fantasy movie that takes place in three different time bounds (the present, past, and future), a tale that spans over a thousand of years. It was directed by Darren Aronofsky and the film stars Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.


Movie Synopsis:

The Fountain is about the journey of a man through time and his thousand-year struggle to save the woman he loves most. Tommy Creo (Hugh Jackman) is desperate to cure his beloved wife Isabel (Rachel Weisz) from the killer cancer. Tom searches for a legendary tree called 'The Tree of Life' that believed to give eternal life as the solution for his wife's condition. His journey is divided into three different time bounds spanning a millennium. His journey begins when he becomes a conquistador of the 16th century Spain, then a modern-day scientist and a 26th century astronaut traveling in space, trying to unveil the mysteries of life that consumed him for a thousand of years.


Movie Trivia:

  • The Fountain was originally set to be filmed in 2002 with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett as the lead casts with a $75 million production budget. But The Fountain shut down their production as Pitt and Blanchett left and chose to film Troy (2004) instead. Having a smaller budget of $35 million, Darren Aronofsky cast Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz as their replacement.
  • Brad Pitt left The Fountain because the pre-production of the movie was taking longer than expected and chose to star in Troy with a budget of $180 million.
  • Ironically, Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett played as couple in Troy as what their roles would be in The Fountain.
  • Hugh Jackman shave off all his hair on his chest and head for a scene in this movie.
  • Aronofsky chose to do special effects using micro-photography of chemical reactions on tiny petri dishes instead of using CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) because he believes that CGI would take away the timelessness of the movie and he wanted his film to stand the test of time.
  • There are 70 extras played as Mayan Warriors and 20 of them are real Mayans from Guatemala. The real Mayans blessed the film's set before shooting at the Mayan pyramid.
  • Actor Fernando Hernandez ,who played the Lord of Xibalba of the Mayan tribe, was the only one who could speak English among the group.
  • Tom's last name Creo means "I create" in Latin and "I believe" in Spanish. While Izzi's full name is quite close to the phonetic translation for Spanish term "Y sí, creo" that means "And yes, I do believe."
