Along with Keanu, who was the host and producer of this documentary which investigates the history, process and workflow of both digital and photochemical film creation, were director Christopher Kenneally, Geoffrey Gilmore and Jane Rosenthal.
Keanu Reeves signs autographs before catching a flight at LAX. Reeves is currently promoting his documentary, “Side by Side,” which investigates the history, process and workflow of digital and photochemical film creation. Hi produced and is host of the acclaimed film that has been included in many prestigious festivals, including the TriBeCa Film Festival.
The Day The Earth Stood Still is about to come out in theaters, and I’m uber psyched about it. Yeah, it’s kinda sci-fi and that’s not really the genre that makes my toes tingle, but it has Keanu Reeves in it!
You can take just about any movie and make it better by adding a little dash of Keanu. Remember the surfing one that he did with Patrick Swayze? It was like a one-two punch of awesome! And don’t even get me started on Speed. Keanu had to carry that whole movie on his back, because Dennis Hopper and Sandra Bullock weren’t helping the cause at all.
Let’s take some classics, then add a little Keanu.
- Driving Miss Daisy. Morgan Freeman has got to go…Keanu can act circles around that guy. Plus, we all know he can drive.
- Outbreak. Dustin Hoffman took almost two hours to figure that virus thing out. Amateur! Keanu would have flown to Africa, grabbed that monkey and created an anti-virus in 15 minutes, tops. He was a federal agent in Point Break, so I’m sure he could handle it.
- Titanic. As I watched Leo DiCaprio play Jack, all I could think about is how different things would have been if Keanu had been cast in the role. As the boat was sinking, Keanu would have jumped out, grabbed one end and swam the ship to land himself. Everyone would have been saved, and he probably wouldn’t have even broken a sweat. In case you’re wondering, yes: Keanu does have magical superhuman powers. Which brings me to…
- Batman/Iron Man/Indiana Jones: What’s the matter with these movies? Well, nothing, if you like mere humans to be your superhero. All of these guys are just normal people with crazy toys (or, you know, a whip) that protect them. Keanu doesn’t need any of that, because I’m fairly certain he’s bullet proof. I also have it on good authority that he can fly faster than Superman.
- Casablanca. Do you think Ingrid Bergman would have EVER left Keanu standing at the airfield? Hell no! She would have clung to him for the rest of her life, no matter what crappy town they were stuck in. What kind of candy-ass man lets a lady like Ingrid leave? Not Keanu, I’ll tell you that much.
I’m sure there are dozens of others, but I can’t list them all because I have a root emergency that needs to be taken care of by my stylist, STAT! Right now, Kunta Kinte has nothing on me.
On Friday, Keanu Reeves attended a panel discussion and screening of his new film The Day the Earth Stood Still at Caltech in Pasadena, California. The discussion focused on how the science in the movie meshes with science in real life, which must have been an interesting conversation to have with Keanu.
When I think of famous people and science, I think of Ben Stein. Keanu Reeves? Not so much.
Jurors involved in a $704,974 lawsuit against Keanu Reeves decided that he should be able to keep his money. A photographer named Alison Silva claimed that Keanu hit him with his car (the black Porsche pictured above), and he was unable to work as a result of his injuries.
Silva probably had everything right and was on the fast track to getting the better half of a million dollars (don’t ask me where the uber-specific $704,974 number came from), except for one little thing: he was filmed climbing a fence to take pictures of Britney Spears—bad hand and all. The jurors were shown the tape and it was all over from there…the vote was unanimous and it took less than a day for them to deliberate.
Actor Keanu Reeves was behind the wheel of his Porsche that reportedly struck a photographer in LA on Monday night. The photographer fell to the ground and paramedics were called after Reeves’ car allegedly struck the man, said Deputy Ed Hernandez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The photographer, whose name wasn’t released, was taken to a local hospital and treated for unknown injuries. Reeves, 42, was not injured. It wasn’t known how fast the Porsche was traveling at the time.
