What is Movie News After Dark? It’s sights and sounds, vibe and verve, everything that you need to complete your April 20 high (or low depending on how your tax season went). It is movie news and thinky think pieces, infographics and golden posters. It is that for which you yearn: a window into the world of endless entertainment, man…
Catherine Zeta-Jones has emerged from wherever the hell she’s been these past few years to sign on as the villain in Rock of Ages, the Tom Cruise rock opera directed by Adam Shankman. At this point their just throwing more shine on the turd. Which, as I’ve found, does nothing to thwart the odor.
Happy 4/20 to all of our stoner friends. Personally, I don’t touch the stuff. It’s never been my thing. That said, one time I did and if forced me to contemplate the origin of time, and what came before. It was way out there, as is io9’s list of the best sci-fi movies to watch while stoned into orbit.
Three more actors have joined The Hunger Games. I’m told that this film has about 1,000 characters, so we could be at this a while. It will become increasingly boring as they continue to cast unknowns, such as Willow Shields, whose been cast as Prim Everdeen, aka Jennifer Lawrence’s little sister.
Ain’t It Cool has debuted the poster for Lionsgate’s The Devil’s Double, in which Dominic Cooper plays a golden man, or something. Isn’t this that film about Saddam Hussein’s son’s body double? And what’s with the way he’s sitting? Did they intend to make him look like he’s hiding a baby python in his gold pants? Very odd, indeed.
Linkin Park has returned to the right hand of Michael Bay, where they have contributed a theme song of sorts for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. This will be their third collaboration in as many films. Say what you will about their music, it certainly does fit Bay’s aesthetic. And once again, as we see in this featurette, everyone is talking about a more serious take on Transformers in the third movie. It sounds great to me.
Sometime just before I Am Legend hit theaters, I had the opportunity to visit the show where the models of the night-crawling vampire antagonists were created. They looked awesome. Some time later, the movie hit theaters. And delight turned to horror as CGI ruined the whole experience. Now there’s a video of effects artist Steve Johnson’s work that ultimately never was. Oh, how much more fun that film would have been:
We close with a third straight video. Yes, I agree, what fun. Here is an SNL digital short that made me giggle. It’s about British people, and the crime movies they create:
