Dark Horizons’ Notable Films of 2010 – Dawn Treader
Dark Horizons is in the process of reviewing the notable films of 2010. They have picked Dawn Treader as one of them. Some highlights from their story:
“The budget has been cut to a still substantial but more reasonable $140 million which means less pressure to perform but a tighter control on production. Fox Walden also isn’t as strict as Disney on sanitising the product so the film will hopefully take more risks – that could be one of the reasons Disney opted out (they cited ‘creative differences’). The release is back to the more suitable December slot, while director Michael Apted is a far more skilled hand at both drama and action/adventure than previous helmer Andrew Adamson.
The only downside here could be Walden itself which has been keeping production rather quiet and didn’t have any set visits to the film, even for locally based journalists like myself which has surprised more than a few people. A decently updated production blog is online which is a nice start, but the buzz needs to begin early to make sure this doesn’t go the way of ‘Caspian’. Lets hope the film becomes the hit it could be, because the next book ‘The Silver Chair’ is also one of the best of the series and deserves a big-budget adaptation.”
