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?

Tonight’s headliner: David Fincher. He didn’t win an Oscar tonight. While I’m not as completely convinced that he was “robbed” as the rest of the internet, he did put forth a great effort with The Social Network. And eventually he’ll win one of those little golden guys. There’s always that MySpace movie lingering out there…

Speaking of Oscars, Melissa Leo has already apologized for dropping an F-bomb during the live show. Taking into consideration her Oscar ad campaign, that’s the second most offensive thing she’s done lately.

In hindsight, this infographic should be titled “If the Internet Picked the Oscars”… because it didn’t quite get the winners right. So much for social media holding all of the answers to the universe.

Oscar producer Adam Shankman confirmed today that Tom Cruise will star in the upcoming Warner Bros. pic Rock of Ages, in which he will sing Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive.”

Screenrant has put together an informative little round-up of the latest updates on Star Trek 2. Apparently Paramount is throwing money at the thing. Who knew?!

12-year old me already wants one of these Green Lantern posters on my wall:

27-year old me wants one of these painted Rubber posters:

27-year old me is so winning that battle.

Michael Fassbender laughs ominously when asked whether or not his Promethius character is an android. Are you a little paranoid, android? In other news, Radiohead is a good band.

We close tonight with drama, because I’m not sure you’ve had enough of that tonight. As you curl up into the fetal position and cry yourself to sleep, making the transition back to hating the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science, please remember that there are worse things out there. Like being in the line of fire when Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson or Christian “Oscar Winner” Bale go off on a tirade (NSFW, to say the least):
