What is Movie News After Dark? It’s the calm, both before and after the storm. It’s the thing that keeps you warm just before you slip into a night’s slumber. It’s the movie news, editorial links, audio-visual stimuli that you yearn for all day long. It’s the alpha and the omega of what’s happening in the world of entertainment news. It’s also quite playful.
We begin tonight with a new shot of Bruce Willis in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, in which he plays Joe Colton, the original G.I. Joe. It’s hard to argue with the facts: that man knows how to look cool holding a gun, even if the gun in the hands of Adrianne Palicki (seen behind him) is far more badass.
Those of you who have long been disappointed to never get a sequel for This is Spinal Tap! are soon to get the next best thing, a sequel to Anvil! The Story of Anvil. Except for the fact that Anvil is a real thing and the conceit of their sequel is their quest for world peace, which they believe can be won by playing a concert in Israel, where their song “Show Me Your Tits” takes on new meaning.
Dustin Rowles at Warming Glow has written a very fun response to Damon Lindelof’s Hollywood Reporter op-ed about the season finale of The Killing. I have no idea what he’s talking about in That ‘F–ing Idiot’ Damon Lindelof Defends The Killing Season Finale because I’ve just now begun watching the show, but I still found the article entertaining.
/Film’s The movie blogosphere’s resident poster guru Germain Lussier has a great piece entitled The Mystique of Mondo and How It’s Changing the Face of Movie Posters. In it he explains some history behind Mondo and details what has been a fair meteoric rise in the past few years. If you’ve ever even considered buying a movie poster, this one’s a must-read.
We’ve been fans of the folks at Short of the Week for a long time, as we find in their short film curation efforts a kindred spirit. They also write things, it turns out, including this great piece, Has Hollywood Lost Its Way?, a colorfully graphed look at a trend we all know is there. What’s missing is the criticism of you, the audience. Because Hollywood won’t change until the numbers turn the other way. And the people spending money on films are the only ones who can turn those numbers around.
Speaking of movies that weren’t made in a glossy Hollywood factory that you should absolutely see at the earliest possible moment, The Red Band Project presents 5 Reasons to See The Raid. Did I post this link earlier this week? It’s possible. Either way, read it again. Then see The Raid, again.
Over at the newly relaunched Gordon and the Whale (sans Gordon and The Whale), Brian Kelley has relaunched one of my favorite little columns out there, Your Netflix Instant Weekend. It’s not just that Kelley puts together movies you can see right now that go with movies heading into theaters, it’s that his depth of film knowledge is above reproach. That man has seen a lot of movies,good and bad, so that you can skip right to the good ones.
And finally, someone decided that it was a good idea to mash-up the upcoming Summer blockbuster Battleship with James Cameron’s penultimate summer blockbuster Titanic in a trailer simply called Battleship Titanic (the dubstep edition).
