What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie news column desperate in its search for the insanely cool links of the day. It will also take movie related news, things about Community and Doctor Who, as well as, on occasion, updates on The Dark Knight Rises. Although after last night’s entry, it’s not sure there is any TDKR news left to report.
We begin tonight with some incredibly cool animated work from an artist named Otis Frampton. On his Deviant Art page, found via Popped Culture, he envisions what a Battlestar Galactica animated series would look like. I would watch this show, and not just because I’m a die hard BSG fan, either.
The Smoking Jacket presents us with Stuff You Should Know: Zombies, an article about zombies and all the things they do. In the beginning, it was all about voodoo, if you can believe such a thing.
Over at Screenrant, it’s being pondered whether Marvel Studios will go cosmic post-Avengers. In that they will make a leap to a Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and perhaps, just maybe, make a run at that Edgar Wright/Joe Cornish Ant-Man movie, one of which is quite cosmic, the other is a nerd wet dream.

We wouldn’t want you to get a headache. For everyone else, zip on over to Film.com where Eric D. Snider presents The Next 35 Alvin and the Chipmunks Movie Sequel Titles. Including, but not limited to, Alvin and the Chipmunks Learn the True Meaning of Hannukah, which I’m told is in active development.
At Esquire, Tom Junod takes a brief look back at the career of Steven Spielberg. Apparently that guy has directed a bunch of movies you liked.
Scott Meslow at The Atlantic presents us with 17 Films to Look Forward to in 2012. Yeah, he’s made some obvious choices. And this list will pale in comparison to our own 2012 preview (which will include far more than 52 obvious choices). But it’s worth talking about now: what’s your most anticipated of 2012, dear reader?
Someone at Moviehole convinced a drunk intern at Paramount to tell them something juicy, so said intern told them news that seems almost too obvious: a Mission: Impossible 5 and Top Gun 2 are in the works. Note to everyone: A sequel, prequel and reboot of everything that has ever been successful are most definitely in the works. On that, you can always rely. Death. Taxes. Reboots.
We close tonight with a tinge of holiday themery. And it somehow relates to that iPhone you may or may not be getting under your Christmas tree. It’s a Rooster Teeth created short called Siri: The Holiday Horror Movie:
