Paramount Enters Online Game Space With “Rango”

February 12th 2011 • by Jess • No Comments"Rango"

Paramount Digital Entertainment enters the online video game space with a new multi-year partnership with casual game developer Funtactix.

The first title through this deal will be an online game world based on the Paramount Pictures/Nickelodeon Movies computer animated Western film Rango, which features the voices of Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina, and Bill Nighy.

Rango: The WORLD, an online multiplayer game, will launch in conjunction with the March 4 theatrical release.

Rangotells the story of a pet chameleon who ends up the sheriff in the lawless town of Dirt, where he encounters a cast of characters that poke fun at the traditional Hollywood Western formula. The games further explore this variation of the Wild West.

“For Rango: The WORLD, we’re creating a living online universe, a place for fans of the film to enter the world, to create their own persona so they can socialize, explore, compete and play,” said Sam Glassenberg, CEO of Funtactix. “We’ll be adding to the world over time and creating a community.”

Sacha (and Isla?) to attend Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party?

February 9th 2011 • by Jess • 1 Comment »News & Gossip

I just came across this article with music producer Clive Davis, and it mentions Sacha Baron Cohen will be attending his annual pre-Grammy Party this year (the Grammys are this coming Sunday, so the party may be the day before). If this is the case and he is attending, I wonder whether Isla will come along too?? Let’s hope so!

Your annual pre-Grammy Awards party has typically offered testament to the notion of stylistic diversity. Can you give us a sampling of who’s onboard this year?

I’m looking at the RSVP list and it goes from Akon to Earth, Wind & Fire and Jeff Beck, Sacha Baron Cohen, Keyshia Cole and Jermaine Dupri, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones, Dr. Luke, Whitney Houston, Magic Johnson … and that’s just up to the Js.

Content updates – Web/Site & Style

February 5th 2011 • by Jess • No CommentsWebsite

As promised I am working hard on getting all our content in absolute tip-top shape! It’s going to take some time, but I hope you will think it’s worth it. So far, I have completed the (admittedly most boring) Web/Site section, with information on Isla Fisher Web, a ‘Site Search’ page to help you browse through this site easily to find what you’re looking for, our fabulous affiliates, and other web related features. Our affiliates page has been updated, so if you’ve finished your visit here then why not browse through them to find some other fun fansites!

Next up is the Style section. The Accessories page is complete, and the basis of the Hairstyles page is also done. There are a few more pages to work on in there, including some completely new ones such as the Style Rundown and Movie Looks pages. I’m also working on a Top 10 Outfits page, so if you’d like to share your favourite looks from Isla’s public appearances then don’t hesitate to get in touch (post a comment here or email me) and I will include the outfits that get the most mentions.

Just a reminder that while many of the content pages within the site are linked, most of them will give you an error page at the moment, as they are not properly up yet! Please bear with me, as everything will be working soon. And finally, if you have any suggestions for content you’d like to see here at IFW then you know what to do!!

Happy Birthday Isla!

February 3rd 2011 • by Jess • 1 Comment »News & Gossip

Today is a special day, as we celebrate our lovely Isla’s 35th birthday! I’d like to wish her a very Happy Birthday, and I hope she spends a perfect day with her loved ones. And I hope the year ahead brings her all she wishes for! Leave your birthday messages for Isla by posting a comment on this post, if you’d like to.

Today also marks this site’s birthday! Isla Fisher Web was opened by Maria & Riikka on this day back in 2008, meaning we turn 3 years old today.

So to celebrate this special day, I’ve made a small Gallery update with some rare/previously unposted photos. I’ve added a few really old and rare photoshoots from unknown years, in which Isla looks so cute! I’ve also added a new-old photoshoot that was seen in GQ magazine in 2009, and is absolutely stunning! Isla looks amazing in it, and it’s definitely one of my favourite photoshoots. There’s also a photoshoot from Elle back in 2008, which hadn’t been added here til now.

And, another fun rare & exclusive treat – I’ve added screencaps from the Home & Away special ‘Weddings’ DVD, which features a few shots of Shannon at a Summer Bay wedding way back when. These are the first photos from the soap that have been posted here at IFW, so I hope enjoy them. I know I personally always loved Isla as Shannon 😉

As I’ve mentioned before, I am planning to re-vamp the Gallery so look forward to more rare photoshoots and Home & Away photos (as well as lots more other stuff too) in there! And for this same reason I won’t be updating the current Gallery (unless anything new pops up) as everything will be saved and posted in the re-vamped Gallery.

Movie Studios Line Up Super Bowl Commercials

February 1st 2011 • by Jess • No Comments"Rango"

With less than a week remaining until this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV, football fans are gearing up for the showdown between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. But for everyone else, the game means brand new commercials and, in this case, movie trailers!

30-second ads during the most-watched event of the year ran the studios roughly $3 million this year, up slightly from 2010 when a record 106 million people watched the big game, according to THR. It seems as though Fox and Warner Bros are either sitting this one out or keeping their ads under wraps. We’ll be posting those movie-related commercials right here as they come online, but, for now, here is a list of what to expect on Sunday:

Rango (Paramount): An animated film directed by Gore Verbinski about a chameleon that aspires to be a swashbuckling hero, but finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it. Starring (the voices of) Johnny Depp, Timothy Olyphant, Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, Bill Nighy.

New Layout at Isla Fisher Web!

January 30th 2011 • by Jess • 7 CommentsWebsite

After 2 years with the previous layout, as you can see we now have a fabulous new layout here at Isla Fisher Web! This bold and beautiful layout was made for us by former owner Mycah, and I love it! I think it really matches Isla’s vibrant, bold and colourful personality. So I hope you lovely visitors enjoy it too – leave a comment if you’d like to say something!

Along with the new layout comes a major site re-vamp – almost. I’m converting the content over to a new format (won’t make a difference for you, don’t worry) and updating and adding to it as I do so. This is taking a while, though! So you can see what’s to come on each of the sections linked in the navigation, but none of the pages work yet. I’m getting to work on it asap, so please be patient. Once this is done Isla Fisher Web will be brimming with all the fun and informative Isla content you could hope for!

I’ll also be re-vamping the Gallery/Media section, but look out for more news on that in the near future.

I hope you all like the new layout, and check back here regularly for Isla-tastic updates :) If you have any suggestions for content or updates – anything – then don’t hesitate to give me a shout and I will get right on that.
