What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly link round-up column that has a severe addiction to ice cream. And Ron Burgundy’s mustache.
We begin this evening with a bit of silliness in the form of photographer Federic Chiesa’s 80s horror movie icons as creepy senior citizens. He leaves no stone unturned — from a drunk old Freddie to a homeless, still masked Jason — and has created something quite fun. The creepiest of all of these is the one above, featuring the little girls from The Shining, all grown up. Not the actual girls — at least not that we know of — but creepy, all the same.
Gizmodo asks: Which of these Awesome Movie Weapons Would You Choose in Real Life? It’s based on a t-shirt featuring Gandalf the White’s staff, Vader’s lightsaber, Arthur’s Excalibur, Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver and Harry Potter’s wand. That’s a tough one, as each has it’s own unique purposes. What are we killing, zombies? If so, light saber.
Comedian and The League star Paul Scheer has created an amazing new site called BreakingGifs.com. It’s a totem for Breaking Bad fandom, and people who love silly gifs. Here lies his manifesto:
As you know, Anchorman 2 is going to be a thing. In honor of that, Matt Patches has A History of Sequel Rumors and Why It Will Work. Optimism on the internet about a movie project has never been so high. Here’s hoping it’s the beginning of a new trend.
Esquire has a unique little photo feature breaking down Game of Thrones by the Numbers. Did you know that there are 63 countries airing Game of Thrones, while only 35 countries air Dancing with the Stars? There is hope for humanity yet.
Saturday Night Live has added a new cast member, a dame named Kate McKinnon, a fixture of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in NYC and a voice for The Venture Bros. She’s quite funny, I’m told. And SNL can always use a talented lady.
In an attempt to break away — momentarily — from asking actors about their go-to karaoke songs, the folks at Collider present a list of 12 actors who should be in Anchorman 2. It could also be called A List of Actors Who Will Probably Be in Anchorman 2. I mean, how can Richard Jenkins not appear in such an epic comedic endeavor?
We close tonight with an opportunity for you to meet the two new Bond girls, Berenice Marlohe and Naomi Harris. Marlohe is clearly the devious, sultry European Bond girl, while I’m convinced that while sexy, the crux of Harris’ character is that she could probably whoop Daniel Craig’s narrow ass. It’s worth a wait-and-see, to say the least.
