What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly column about movies that’s been kickin’ ass and takin’ names since the sun came up, but for some reason it still waited until late at night to bring you all the movie news of the day. It’s eccentric like that.
We begin tonight with an image of Ben Mendelsohn and Scoot McNairy in Killing Them Softly, Andrew Dominik’s new film based on the adaptation of the novel “Cogan’s Trade.” They are but two of the badass names attached to said project, which includes Brad Pitt, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta and Sam Shepard, among others. Not bad.
The track listing for The Dark Knight Rises soundtrack has been revealed to the world. And because it’s a Christopher Nolan Batman movie, we’re all going to be reading into it way too much. ScreenCrush’s Mike Sampson is leading the charge, talking about What The Dark Knight Rises soundtrack tells us about the film.
Even though Game of Thrones season two just ended, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t already be talking about season three. Rob Payne at Pajiba knows what I’m talking about, with his Six Predictions For Game of Thrones Season 3 By A Non-Book Reading Fan article. As a book reader, well, I’m not saying anything. The images they use in that article, however, are priceless.
Damon Lindelof is still talking. This time he’s on with THR’s scholarly Todd Gilchrist and they’re talking all about Why ‘Vague’ is Good and the “sadistically cool” fallout from the Lost finale. Funny, Lindelof seems to remember it differently than most people.
Lets be honest, you don’t watch enough documentaries. It’s okay, we don’t either. Real life is often boring and full of real people. And what could possibly be interesting about real people? This is the Internet, after all! Anyway, HitFix’s Guy Lodge is monitoring the documentary standouts of 2012 so far, providing us a nice list of docs that we’ll be watching soon.
Latino Review explains how Spider-Man was almost in The Avengers. Or at least, part of The Amazing Spider-Man was almost in the background of The Avengers. Sony and Disney almost did it. They almost made you happy, nerds.
Just in time for more superhero goodness with The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. is bringing Batman Begins back for an IMAX re-release so that we can all sit in an IMAX theater and watch 6 hours of Christopher Nolan Batman movies. Sweet yes.
We close tonight with a scene from The Wonder Years that involves Paul (Josh Saviano) as Spock in a Star Trek parody. There’s no reasonable explanation for why this popped into my brain today. That’s just how my brain works. You know who benefits from that? You do. Because this is awesome.
