What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie news column born exactly one year ago today. And it’s very happy to still be around and well on its way to taking over the planet. It is convinced that it will have a very productive 2012 in that area, especially once humanity’s reign of terror ends later this year. In the mean time, it would like to thank you all for reading. Now enough of that mushy stuff, lets do the news.
We begin this evening with an image of biker Jemaine Clement in Men in Black III. He’s playing an alien biker who turns out to be the villain in this time-traveling storyline…. And we wonder why that movie has had so many production problems? Either way, I’ll watch Jemaine Clement eat soap if I have to, as that guy is quite funny.
Have you guys met Film Studies Ryan Gosling yet? He’s pretty funny. Don’t show him to Landon Palmer, though, as that dude would get all the jokes and thus, would likely wet himself. And we can’t afford to have any more accidents on the office furniture in Reject HQ.
Buried somewhere in this LA Times interview with Brad Pitt, the mult-hyphenate Moneyball star says that World War Z is being planned as a trilogy. What he doesn’t mention is that every movie with a budget of more than $10 million is planned as a trilogy. Especially over at Paramount, where Paranormal Activity 5, 6 and 7 are probably already shooting.
Over on his blog, humorist Eric D. Snider presents 2011 film titles: a dramatic reading. It’s exactly what it claims to be, including a line in which a woman shouts “Courageous! Footloose! Limitless!” I’ve had many a woman cry out in similar fashion during a night of lovemaking. Or Scrabble. I can’t remember exactly.
Thanks to Pajiba, we now know that Something Borrowed made the unofficial list of YouTube’s 25 Most Popular Trailers of 2011. It’s further evidence that the masses don’t exactly have good taste. Or that YouTube is used primarily by 13-year old boys. Either way.
