What Movie Directors’ Homes Should Look Like

It seems only appropriate that movie directors’ homes should reflect their cinematic style and artistic preferences. Thanks to the mad geniuses at Bored Panda for sharing how illustrator Federico Babina combines his passions for illustration, cinema, and architecture.

“Wondering what the iconic movie houses would look like if they were based on her films, Babina created an illustrative series called Archidirector. The series follows the same pattern of another series, Archicine, in which Babina illustrates famous houses and constructions of certain films.

In this work, the Italian showed his admiration for names like Federico Fellini, George Lucas, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Wes Anderson, Charlie Chaplin, David Lynch, Tim Burton, Lars von Trier, Ingmar Bergman, Coen Brothers, Fritz Lang and more.”

#3 Baby Scar and Simba from “The Lion King”

We know Scar grows up to be a mean bully, but all baby animals are sweet and so Scar and Simba get our votes here! Lets just pretend the rest of the movie didn’t happen.

#4 Todd and Copper from “The Fox and the Hound”

Life can be so complicated for adults, but this kit and pup duo are endearing because they’re best friends despite being natural enemies. Tear. Jerker.

#6 Arthur the squirrel and his friend, “The Sword in the Stone”

There’s nothing sweeter than innocent Love crushes! Which one is cuter? Arthur or his girlfriend… well she thinks she is. Aww sweet!

#7 Flower from “Bambi”

The blushing and giggling Flower is one of our faves because his sweetness is such a contradiction to what he is. Much like real skunks, they’re beautiful but awfully smelly!

#8 Thumper from “Bambi”

It goes without saying that bunnies are always cute, but they can sing and dance too? Ugh, too cute!

#9 The Dalmatian family from “101 Dalmatians”

I don’t know how they do it, but raising 101 adorable puppies is enough to get you on our list!

#10 Lady and The Tramp (Spaghetti For Two?)

Lady and The Tramp make the best couple! We love their happy romance story. The boy from the wrong side of the tracks meets nice well-breed gal… and forever after! People should be so lucky!

#11 Baby Dumbo from “Dumbo”

Everyone feels for Dumbo for having those big awkward ears! We can all learn from him and turn our worst aspects into something good. Dumbo is precious here!

#12 Baby Bambi meets Thumper

Just looking at baby Bambi tugs at our hearts! We all know what happens to his mom, and this makes us care for him all-the-more. sniff… sniff

from http://www.flicksandbits.com/2013/06/09/first-the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaug-poster-trailer-confirmed-for-tuesday/49593/


With the first teaser trailer for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ arriving online this Tuesday, June 11th, at 10am PST/1pm EST/6pm GMT, Warner Bros. Pictures has unleashed this first poster for the film. Source: @TheHobbitMovie.

The adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’ was originally made as a two-part film, however Warner Bros, Peter Jackson, producer Fran Walsh and writer-producer Philippa Boyens announced last year that ‘The Hobbit’ films will be a trilogy. The release schedule for the upcoming two films are as follows: ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ arrives in cinemas on December 13th, while ’The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ concludes the trilogy on December 17th, 2014. In March, Jackson revealed a 6-minute excerpt of the live event he hosted for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,’ providing us with a first official look at the film.

‘The Hobbit’ films are set in Middle-earth 60 years before ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ which Peter Jackson and his film-making team brought to the big screen in the fantastic blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.’ Reprising their roles from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movies are Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey, Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins, Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Orlando Bloom as Legolas, Ian Holm as the elder Bilbo, Christopher Lee as Saruman, Hugo Weaving as Elrond, and Andy Serkis as Gollum.
