Even though it stars Meryl, Julia, Ewan, Benedict, Dermot, Abigail Breslin and Juliette Lewis, and is based on the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play, I just don’t know. I’m left feeling sort of “meh” about this. We might just be better off re-watching the American Dad! parody of it, “Blood Crieth Unto Heaven.”

It’s Game of Thrones meets Vikings with lots of superhot guys with supergreasy hair in leather jerkins that show off their muscles and tattoos, and everybody is trying to take the crown and some of them talk like Batman, and some of them talk like Stannis Baratheon. So yes, of course I’m going to see it. And hey, it’s one of the only movies out this summer that’s not a sequel or reboot. In theaters July 5.
Stop. Breathe. Compose yourself. Omgomgomg. It’s RYAN. Teaming with the brilliant Nicolas Winding Refn again for
Drive 2: Tokyo Drift Only God Forgives. The plot? “A Bangkok police lieutenant and a gangster settle their differences in a Thai-boxing match.” Which is sort of WHATEVER, but you’re just going to have to accept it and move along, because TRUST ME, this looks SPECTACULAR. Rfen knows the key to his movie’s success is to bathe Ryan in electric neon light, and to keep the dialogue at a minimum. Just let Ryan grunt and punch and be the prettiest brute ever captured on film. And he is. He is. MY GOD. Is it wrong that I want Ryan to drag me down a hall by the teeth, as he does in the trailer? Is it wrong that when he says “Wanna fight?” I DO? I want to fight until we’re sweaty, and sobbing, and collapse on the floor in a bloody, crumpled heap. Together. Together forever. OMG THIS LOOKS GOOD.
The difference between this extra footage Japanese trailer and the American trailer would be the shot that is much like the end of Wrath of Kahn, with Kirk and Spock’s hands on the glass. Rumor has it that Benedict Cumberpatch is to play Khan, and that extra footage may seem to be more proof of this. OR maybe it’s Gary Mitchel, a villan from the pilot of the original series episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” seeing as how a woman looking like Dr. Dehner is shown in the trailer as well. Maybe it’s a coincidence, or maybe it’s both? Who do you think it could be? (t/y Billy)
The next big teen movie trilogy has a killer cast that includes the goddess Lena Headey (GoT‘s Cersei Lannister, bitches), Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zeggers, Aidan Turner (from All My Children), and most exciting of all: gorgeous Taiwanese superstud Godfrey Gao as the malevolent Magnus Bane. And yes, it looks to be a mish-mash of every supernatural YA movie cliché, but I’m thinking the cast more than makes up for that.
At a time when superheroes have lost government funding and public support, a superhero meets a girl who can help him overcome his own emotional crisis. Distributed by Kevin Smith and starring an adorable Kris Lemche (Final Destination 3 and “Cute Boy God” on Joan of Arcadia, of course), this one looks like it just might have weird indie potential.
Here’s an extended look at the upcoming musical, and it’s a knockout. Viewers are taken behind the scenes, where we see Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, and Amanda Seyfried singing and explaining the process of creating the movie. Director Tom Hooper made the rather radical decision to have the cast sing live as they taped, as opposed to pre-recording the music and then lipsyncing to the playback, as has been done since the dawn of movie musicals. The result, everyone agrees, is something raw, powerful, and above all, true. I think this is going to be my favorite movie OF ALL TIME. Anyone else excited?
