What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie news column that refuses to turn its back on Michael Bay and Doctor Who, but also wants to keep you interested. With that in mind, tonight is only half text. The rest if videos and pictures, sights and sounds. Only the best for your ADD-afflicted minds.
The news is out, and Arnold Schwarzenegger is now being closely linked to another episode in the Terminator franchise. He and director Justin Lin are attached to a project that, for all intents and purposes, has studios like Universal, Sony and Lionsgate pulling out their big daddy checkbooks. In unrelated news, we aren’t sure that movie studios still use checkbooks. They may have moved on to direct deposit for price tags over $25 million.
The full theatrical trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon will premiere online this Thursday on iTunes. This was revealed by the film’s official Twitter account. I’m excited.
The 84th annual Academy Awards are set for February 26, 2012. If we could get all of the bitching and moaning about not caring about the Oscars out of the way by January 26, 2012, I’d greatly appreciate it. Please use the comments section below.
YouTube is reportedly expanding its movie service to compete with the likes of iTunes and Amazon. All the while, Netflix continues to offer movies for a subscription rate, rather than charging per film.
Doctor Who‘s sixth series premiere this past weekend has become the highest rated premiere in BBC America history. 1.3 million viewers is a lot, but it’s enough. Spread the word, people.
This one time, at band camp, the fourth American Pie film American Reunion got a release date. April 6, 2012, for those still reading.
Got an iPhone? Love Star Wars? You’re going to wish you could have this Steve Jobs in carbonite iPhone case.
20th Century Fox doesn’t care what you think, they’re just going to keep doing what they think is funny. Like planning a futuristic version of Zorro. See! Hilarious!
According to Chris Evans in this interview with MTV, Captain America and Tony Stark are going to butt heads in The Avengers. Some sort of idealistic difference with decades of comic books backing it up. Should be fun.
And now for the audio/visual stimuli portion of our evening…
Yahoo has debuted two new posters for Green Lantern, including Mark Strong as Sinestro and Kilowog, who will be voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan. Kilowog is the cool one, so I’ve included it below.
A series of new character posters have debuted online. You can find them at HitFix, MovieFone, MSN, Yahoo and SheKnows. My favorite comes from ComingSoon and features The Office star Ellie Kemper. You can behold “The Innocent One” below:
Behold a fan-made trailer for The Batman Complex, a psychological exploration of the madness that is Bruce Wayne. It also has a lot of stuff from The Machinist, for good measure. Thanks to You Bent My Wookie for the find.
The Onion interviews Chris Morgan, the 5-year old writer of Fast Five:
A trailer for the 40th Anniversary Edition of A Clockwork Orange has been released. It can be viewed right now. You’ll be able to buy the Blu-ray on May 31st. Do both, you won’t regret it.
I don’t watch Jersey Shore, but if it’s as funny as the version Martin Short made for Jimmy Kimmel Live, then I’m still not going to watch it.
