What is Movie News After Dark? This is a question that I am almost never asked, but I will answer it for you anyway. Movie News After Dark is FSR’s newest late-night secretion, a column dedicated to all of the news stories that slip past our daytime editorial staff and make it into my curiously chubby RSS ‘flagged’ box. It will (but is not guaranteed to) include relevant movie news, links to insightful commentary and other film-related shenanigans. I may also throw in a link to something TV-related here or there. It will also serve as my place of record for being both charming and sharp-witted, but most likely I will be neither of the two. I write this stuff late at night, what do you expect?
New images have been released for Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, starring Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley and Tron: Legacy’s Garrett Hedlund. It’s more of a “look, Kristen Stewart can smile” sort of moment, if nothing else. [via Cinematical]
For anyone who has ever watched a Nicolas Cage movie and thought, “Man, this guy is all over the place,” here is your proof. A Nic Cage Matrix, in which his filmography is plotted based on two scales ranging from Serious to Mental, and Rubbish to Brilliant. I bet you didn’t expect it to be this well-balanced, did you?
Eva Green has jumped into the mix for the upcoming Tim Burton/Johnny Depp joint Dark Shadows. She’ll play a witch trapped in a tumultuous love/hate relationship with a vampire, played by Depp. Hopefully she’ll be feisty.
Speaking of Nicolas Cage. His upcoming film, Drive Angry 3D, absolutely does not give a shit about winning Oscars. Please enjoy this delightfully NSFW television spot that includes plenty of blood, guts and Cage!
Robert Rodriguez, Bruce Willis, Danny Drejo and Kobe Bryant walk into a production meeting. The result looks like every non-Spy Kids thing Robert Rodriguez has done in the few years. I’m bored. Unless Lebron James gets machete’d (I’m from Cleveland, so it’s okay) at the end, this won’t connect.
Tonight’s closer is Everything is a Remix – Part 2. It’s an educational short of sorts focused on the not-so-recent trend of Hollywood using existing material to make unoriginal movies that take money from good, hard-working folks like you and I. It’s a tired argument, but I did enjoy the insight of /Film’s Russ Fischer, who remains one of my favorite reads in the blogosphere.
