What is Movie News After Dark? It’s something that happens nightly, provides you with good feelings, is easy to clean up and doesn’t require anyone else to be in the room. What else in your life is like that?
We begin tonight with a completely badass image from Brave in which Princess Merida jumps from the clutches of what seems to be an evil bear into the grasp of a nice bear. The difference is in the claws. Also, The Art of Brave book is available for pre-order. Get it.
Tonight in inside baseball, The Huffington Post has published a guide for How to Write an Opinion Piece About Girls. I found this via Joanna Robinson at Pajiba — who you will note is a personal favorite in potentially inappropriate ways. Much of tonight’s column comes from her Pajiba Love column. I can’t hide that fact. She also found this awesome Allegory of Thrones piece over at Unreality Magazine that compares Game of Thrones characters to real political figures (The “always going on about climate change” line floored me). Then she dissed Fringe, which made me weep. I love that show. How could you, Joanna?
And.. we’re back. Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, long being a fan of lists on the internet, has published a list of The Six Coolest Songs Referencing Marvel Comics Characters. Well, if you’re going to whore for hits, you might as well do it in an awesome way. That’s been my motto all along.
After 25-years of cuddling and making movies, Joel Silver and Warner Bros. are done professionally. This probably won’t impact you, the fan, in any way. But it’s worth noting.
Taste of Cinema has 16 Brilliant Movie Quotes from 16 Great Directors, which is sort of a lazy reader’s version of our own “6 Filmmaking Tips From…” series.
Fox Searchlight has released its poster for the Sundance darling Beasts of the Southern Wild. Our Kevin Kelly loved it up at Sundance back in January.
Jordan Hoffman went over to /Film to write a list of The Best Time Travel Movies You Probably Haven’t Seen. Although you shouldn’t read it, as it gives away some plot from a movie that has not yet been released. If I tell you what movie it is, then it gives it away. You’ll just have to trust me. It’s also a well-written list.
Flavorwire has a list of 10 Fictional Characters You Probably Didn’t Know Were Based on Real People. Unless you are the guy upon which Abed from Community is based. Then you probably already had your suspicions. Especially after they introduced the Dreamatorium. (Also, I knew the one about A League of Their Own… doesn’t everyone know about Jimmie Foxx?)
The Trost brothers, birthers of the strange phenomenon that is The FP, are working on The FP 2: Re-Nig. That’s a thing.
Pajiba presents 15 Things We Learned About Community from “Basic Lupine Urology,” also known as last night’s episode.
Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci has an interesting piece about how Marvel’s Kevin Feige Says Iron Man Is Like James Bond — You Can Change the Actor. This comes a day removed from me seeing The Avengers and deciding that I could watch Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark like, forever. You break my heart, Kevin Feige.
Is there too much nudity on Game of Thrones? The Washington Post’s Anna Holmes seems to think so. I fail to see her point.
We close tonight with The Muppets rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody. Because we can. And because Pajiba’s Dustin Rowles put together this nice list of the 5 Best Performances of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” none of which involve an actual Queen performance:
