What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly news thingy, that publishes link thingies, some of which are sort of interesting. You should really read on, as it can only get better from here.
We open tonight with television, and one of the big stories out of the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour happening this week. Glee and Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy debuted a first look at his upcoming FX pilot, American Horror Story.Word from NPR’s Monkey See is that it’s a “sex-filled gorefest” and subsequently “flat-out crazy.” The image above is a first look. Nothing too crazy yet, especially for the seasoned horror fan or the sexually liberated.
For those who missed it yesterday, football star and actor Bubba Smith passed away. He was best known for his charm and his massive size, both of which shone in the Police Academy movies. If you were a fan — and there’s no doubt that you were — join us in cracking open a Miller Lite and putting on Police Academy this weekend in his honor.
Kenneth Lonergan’s Margaret may finally see the light of day. This is the film that stars Matt Damon, Anna Paquin and Mark Ruffalo, but has been shelved for years. /Film has a pretty solid round-up of its trials and tribulations. According to new reports, it will hit theaters on September 30.
The Independent has an interesting expose on the science of the trailer, one of my favorite film marketing sciences. The ability to cut a trailer that is exciting without giving away too much is a rare thing. It reminds me of the third trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek film.
We close tonight with — as you might expect — some Doctor Who news. BBC has released a trailer for the second part of the ongoing sixth series of Doctor Who, set to return at the end of the month. BBC America lists the return date as August 27. It’s too long, of that I can be certain.
