- SAG says actors won't do Globes
It's official: No actors will show up
By DAVE MCNARY
SAG president Alan Rosenberg has announced that not one of the more
than 70 actors nominated for a Golden Globe will attend the Jan. 13
ceremonies because of the WGA's plans to picket the event.
The Globes have been thrown into turmoil and uncertainty due to the
WGA's refusal to grant a strike waiver to struck Globes producer Dick
Clark Prods., which offered to accept the same terms as David
Letterman's Worldwide Pants banner. Instead, the guild has said it
will picket the Globes, skedded to air on NBC, which has become a
prime target of the WGA's strike campaign in the past few weeks.
Rosenberg, who made the announcement Friday afternoon, has been a
staunch supporter of the two-month strike.
"After considerable outreach to Golden Globe actor nominees and their
representatives over the past several weeks, there appears to be
unanimous agreement that these actors will not cross WGA picket lines
to appear on the Golden Globe Awards as acceptors or presenters," he
said. "We applaud our members for this remarkable show of solidarity
for striking Writers Guild of America writers."
In response, Dick Clark Prods. issued this statement: "Dick Clark
Productions has reached out to the WGA on numerous occasions, from
the very beginning of the WGA strike, and offered to enter into an
interim agreement similar to the agreement reached by Worldwide Pants
on behalf of the "Late Show with David Letterman" for the "Golden
Globe Awards" -- as well as all of our other programs. We are
disappointed that the WGA has refused to bargain with us in good
faith. It is apparent that we are being treated differently from
similarly situated production companies.
"Dick Clark Productions is an independent production company that is
not a member of the AMPTP and which has not authorized the AMPTP to
represent it in the 2007 WGA negotiations. We support the WGA in
their efforts on behalf of writers and hope that they will reconsider
their position with regard to negotiating an interim agreement with us."
On Friday, at a Los Angeles meeting with actors' reps, Rosenberg
passed along the WGA's wish that actors also not attend the Broadcast
Film Critics' Critics Choice Awards Monday night, even though the
event will not be picketed and will be broadcast by VH1. The event is
not under a union contract, so the WGA cannot officially call for a
Earlier Friday, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Jorge
Camara issued this statement: "The Hollywood Foreign Press
Association has been placed in an extremely difficult position with
the ongoing Writers Guild strike. We are making every effort to work
out a solution that will permit the Golden Globes to take place with
the creative community present to participate. We hope to announce a
resolution to this unfortunate predicament on Monday."
WGA West president Patric Verrone also issued a response praising SAG
and blaming the mega-congloms for throwing the kudos season into
"We are grateful to our brothers and sisters in SAG for their
continued solidarity and support," Verrone said. "The entire awards
show season is being put in jeopardy by the intransigence of a few
big media corporations. We urge the conglomerates to return to the
bargaining table they abandoned and negotiate a fair and reasonable
deal with writers to put this town back to work."
A group of top publicity firms echoed SAG's concerns in a letter to
NBC Universal president and CEO Jeff Zucker sent Friday afternoon.
"After much discussion with our clients, we have concluded the vast
majority of the talent we represent are not comfortable crossing a
picket line. Our clients are extremely grateful to the Hollywood
Foreign Press Association and would love the opportunity to be
recognized for their work, but will only do so in the event NBC/Dick
Clark Productions reaches an interim agreement with the WGA for the
Talks between the WGA and the AMPTP collapsed on Dec. 7 after the
majors insisted the guild remove six proposals from the table as a
condition of continued bargaining. No new talks have been set; the
Directors Guild of America may start their talks with the AMPTP soon.
Rosenberg also announced SAG is urging its members to appear on the
two Worldwide Pants shows that have waiver deals with the WGA --
"Late Show with David Letterman" and "Late Late Show with Craig
Ferguson" -- but indicated they should avoid other shows. That would
include "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," although Rosenberg did not
specify any other show by name.
"Actors who are asked to appear on the struck network talk shows will
have to cross WGA picket lines, creating the same situation that has
led to the consensus among actors to skip the golden Globes,"
Rosenberg said. "As I have said since this strike began on November
5th, we must stand united with our brothers and sisters at the WGA."

- When Movies Don’t Live Up to the Trailer
By DAVID POGUE
I can’t tell you how much I love the Internet Movie Database
(imdb.com). I love The Times’s movie reviews, too, but I don’t always
agree with them. The wisdom of the masses on IMDB -- thousands of
people’s collective grade for a movie on a 1-to-10 scale -- very
(Hint: It’s not really a 1-to-10 scale. By the time you average
together all the scores from a huge number of people with different
tastes, the scale gets compressed. On IMDB, an average movie usually
gets around a 7. Anything that averages an 8 score is sensational;
below 6, it’s a turkey.)
Last night, I took my two older kids to see “National Treasure: Book
of Secrets.” I knew from IMDB that it wasn’t going to be a
masterpiece; it scored only a 6.9, and the comments warned us that
there are plot holes big enough to drive a convoy through. But we’d
liked the first “National Treasure” movie, with all its historical
references and clever puzzles, and thought we’d give it a shot.
On the way home, what we discussed wasn’t the plot or the shaky grasp
of history. It was all the good stuff we’d seen in the trailers (the
ads) that weren’t even *in* the movie.
For example, in one of the trailers, there are shots of the pyramids
and other Egyptian landmarks. None of the movie takes place in Egypt.
Then there’s a flyover of the top of Mount Rushmore, revealing that
there’s a rectangular door carved into the stone of the mountain
behind it. That shot isn’t in the movie, either (and would have
helped a lot with comprehension, by the way).
One of the most compelling sequences in the trailer shows Nicolas
Cage at the Lincoln Memorial — three or four shots that make you
think that this movie’s grand historical conspiracy somehow involves
that famous monument. It doesn’t, and none of those shots appear in
Oh, there’s humor in the movie, too. In the trailer, Nicolas Cage
sticks his hand into a rocky hole. His mother says, “It could be a
horrible trap!” He suddenly screams in pain! But then he reveals that
he’s just kidding: “Sorry, I couldn’t resist.” This sequence is
totally different in tone, timing and even camera angle than what’s
in the movie.
In trailer #2, Mr. Cage’s girlfriend Abigail says, regarding the
presidential book of secrets: “Oh, come on. It’s a myth!” She doesn’t
say that in the movie; she hasn’t even heard of it in the movie.
In the preview, the President of the United States tells Mr. Cage:
“You are now No. 1 on the N.S.A., the C.I.A., and the F.B.I.’s Most
Wanted list.” All of this is edited dramatically in the trailer, with
quick flashes to running SWAT teams, FBI guys with raised pistols,
and so on.
But that line never appears in the movie — and, if you see the movie,
you’ll see why it’s completely misleading to imply that the president
would say that.
Then there’s the sidekick Riley’s hilarious quips. Cage says, in a
dank, “Raiders of the Lost Ark”-style cavern: “Riley! What do you see
Riley replies: “Death and despair. Mostly death, though, maybe a
little despair for a few seconds, but then a hard sudden death.”
That entire exchange exists only in the trailer.
I can already hear the snarling e-mail rebuttals: “It’s a movie. Let
it go. The world has bigger problems.”
And I do realize that editing happens. Especially with movies in
trouble or movies where early test audiences are confused. And I’ll
bet there was a lot of that on this movie. Trailers are often edited
rather radically — scenes rearranged, dialogue snippets taken out of
context, and so on. And usually, nobody minds.
But this one got me thinking: Just how different can a trailer be
without becoming false advertising?
In this case, those lines from Riley made the movie seem funnier than
it was, the president’s line made the dramatic stakes seem higher
than they were, and the scenes at the Lincoln Memorial made the
historical conspiracy seem more ingenious than it was (historical
clues hidden right under our noses!). I can say with confidence that
some of those elements played a part in my wanting to see the movie.
Rearranging scenes in the trailer is one thing. But what about this
business of putting stuff in the trailer -- a *lot* of stuff -- that
isn’t in the movie at all? If they can get away with “National
Treasure”-style misrepresentation, what’s to stop other moviemakers
from putting special effects, witty lines, exotic locales and hot-
looking actors into *their* trailers, just to get us to go to a movie
that doesn’t have any of those things?
And if they do start doing that, how will we, the people, ever
compare notes and warn each other? We’ll do it on IMDB, of course.

Movie Trailers: The Final Cut
By DAVID POGUE
In my newsletter last week, I criticized “National Treasure: Book of
Secrets” -- or rather, its ads. I pointed out that the trailers for
this movie were teeming with scenes, lines of dialogue and shots that
were not, in fact, in the movie.
This week, I want to share some of the reader feedback. I realize
that I’m straying from my usual technology focus, but this business
of movie trailers turns out to be a hot topic. Besides, today’s
installment has a surprise ending that’s too good to withhold.
Anyway, lots of you agreed with me:
* “Putting scenes in the trailer that aren’t in the movie crosses a
big line with me.”
* “When was the last time you bought a book and found that the
extract on Amazon isn’t in the book? And when was the last time you
bought a CD and found that the pre-released single isn’t on it?
Never? So why are film studios allowed to do it?”
But more of you had other gripes with movie trailers:
* "What should make us all angry is trailers that give away important
plot points. I’ve taken to calling going to films ‘trailer
“A friend of mine actually waits outside the door of the theater
until they’ve finished showing the previews, so as not to ruin future
moviegoing experiences. (I’d do that, too, if I weren’t so interested
in getting a good seat.)”
* “At least ‘National Treasure’’s trailer didn’t mislead regarding
the tone or plot. Didja ever see the trailer for Jack Nicholson’s
‘About Schmidt?’ You’d think the movie was a hilarious comedy. The
trailer contains the only 30 seconds of the movie that even hint at
comedy. The rest is the darkest, most depressing film I have ever seen.”
* “ You missed a very important point: When I go to the theatre, why
do I see trailers for movies that won't be out for six months? I am
more interested in what will be playing at my local theater in the
next few weeks. And if the trailer related to a movie that was
imminent, then it would probably be more accurate as well.”
And then, inevitably, there were comments like these:
* “Jeeez, you folks should get a life! This is a problem?? Who cares?
Can’t believe you devoted a column to this.”
But of all the feedback to my column, one person’s message carries
more authority than anyone else’s. It comes from Jon Turteltaub --
the *director* of “National Treasure: Book of Secrets!”
Kudos to him for chiming in, and for allowing me to post his comments.
* “Yeah... the trailer issue is a weird one. At some point, we all
wonder if there’s something misleading in the advertising if the
scenes shown aren’t in the movie... but apparently, the studios and
all their lawyers feel it’s not a legal problem.
“Basically, what happens is that as we film a movie, the ‘dailies’
are sent to the marketing department. They cut together the trailers
LONG before we have had time to cut the movie together. The first
trailer for ‘Book of Secrets’ was finished when we were only halfway
through the filming!
“Then, as we cut the movie, they get revised scenes and try their
best to use what we give them, but often, the ship has sailed.
They’ve finished a fun, great trailer without knowing whether the
scenes will end up in the movie. Plus, scenes can get cut out at the
last minute for all sorts of reasons... running time, they test
badly, or they just don’t fit.
“What’s funny is that the filmmakers do exactly what you do. I was
watching the final trailer for my movie, saying what you said:
‘Ummm....that’s not in the movie, that’s not in the movie, THAT’S not
in the movie.’ But then I respond by saying, ‘Uh oh, did we cut out
all the best parts???’
“The fact is, what works in a trailer isn’t necessarily what works in
the full feature. Dialogue that is really blatantly clear and
‘explainy’ is GREAT in a trailer. Profound statements like ‘Let’s
find that treasure!’ work in a 30-second commercial, but come out
pretty lame in a real dialogue scene.
“For me, the biggest problem that comes up is when the trailers and
TV spots don’t reflect the essence of the movie they are selling. You
see that a LOT. The studio often feels that the movie they made isn’t
a movie they can sell... so they sell it as a different movie. That
can help fill seats on opening weekend, but it usually backfires.
Personally, I think that’s what happened to ‘Sweeney Todd.’ Perhaps
they didn’t want anyone to know it was bloody, gory, and a musical.
So they hid that. What happens is that the wrong audience sees the
movie on opening weekend, and the word of mouth is all wrong. Great
movies can get lost because of this.”

'Atonement,' 'Sweeney' win Globes
Christie wins best actress, Day-Lewis wins actor
By PHIL GALLO
Two films that twist their genres, the period romance "Atonement" and
Tim Burton's adaptation of the murderous musical "Sweeney Todd," were
named the top movies of 2007 at the odd and quickly executed 65th
annual Golden Globes "ceremony" Sunday.
"Atonement" and "Sweeney" were among four pics receiving two wins
each. "No Country for Old Men" won the screenplay nod for Ethan and
Joel Coen and supporting actor for Javier Bardem; "The Diving Bell
and the Butterfly" won for director Julian Schnabel and foreign
language film. "Atonement's second win was for Dario Marianelli's score.
Because the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. was unable to make a deal
with the striking Writers Guild of America, which would have allowed
the Globes to be televised, the usual fanfare associated with the
Globes was replaced by a news conference. Award winners were read by
television entertainment journalists from the shows "The Insider,"
CNN's "Showbiz Tonight," E!, "Extra," "Inside Edition," and
"Entertainment Tonight." HFPA president Jorge Camara presented the
final award of the night.
"Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street" highlighted a musical
mood of the evening: Johnny Depp won an acting trophy for portraying
Todd; Cate Blanchett was named supporting actress for her portrayal
of Bob Dylan in "I'm Not There"; and Marion Cotillard won the musical/
comedy actress award for portraying Edith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose."
Julie Christie, who had not been nominated for a Globe since 1975's
"Shampoo," won her first for "Away From Her." Daniel Day-Lewis, who
had been nominated four times previously and not won, struck oil in
the actor in a drama category for "There Will Be Blood."
The Globes, determined by the 82-member Hollywood Foreign Press
Assn., were handed out in 35 minutes at a press conference in the
hotel's International Ballroom with no celebrities or recipients on
The journos continued to display their love for Great Britain and
cable television, handing "Longford," HBO's U.K. co-production with
Granada and Channel 4, three awards, including best miniseries or
motion picture made for TV. AMC's "Mad Men," with only one season
aired, won the TV drama nod while its star, Jon Hamm took the award
for actor in a TV drama series. "Extras," from the BBC and HBO, was
named TV's top comedy.
"Longford's" Jim Broadbent and Samantha Morton won acting awards;
Jeremy Piven (HBO's "Entourage") and David Duchovny (Showtime's
"Californication") were among the cable stars awarded.
For the second year in a row, Disney/Pixar was served the animated
film award, this time for "Ratatouille."
"Charlie Wilson's War," which received five noms, and "Michael
Clayton, which had four, were shut out.
HBO was the TV leader with six wins in the 11 TV categories. Among
the film studios, Paramount Vantage and Miramax were involved with
four winners each.
