What is Movie News After Dark? It’s just as movie-obsessed as you are, which is why it continues to give you all this fun and fancy content on a nightly basis. Every weeknight at 10p Central, 11p Eastern and 6a in Istanbul (which, depending on the season, is still during a dark time of day).
We begin tonight with the most adorable promotional photo for a hardline sci-fi movie ever. Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace aren’t doing service to the seriousness of Ridley Scott’s upcoming epic, but they sure are having fun.
BREAKING NEWS! Community has been renewed for at least one more 13-episode season. All is well.
In honor of its $775 million box office dollars (and counting), The Avengers has now inspired folks like Ben Moore at ScreenRant to write of 15 Avengers We Want to See in Avengers 2 & Beyond.
HitFix has word of Catherine Zeta-Jones joining Red 2, the follow up to the Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren-led action from from 2010. There’s no reason why a second round won’t also be awesome, as long as they continue to give Dame Mirren the big guns.
The Atlantic’s Daniel Snyder writes of how Scarlett Johansson has the most human moment in The Avengers, an angle that few are yet to take on the movie. It’s a good read, if you like heroes and stuff.
As promised from yesterday, there’s follow-up to the BreakingGIFs project. A new Breaking Bad poster by Daniel Danger was released and sold today, focused on the show’s pilot episode. It’s rather gorgeous, although I’m sure it looks even better in real life. It’s already sold out, as these things go. I predict that such a project will continue to drive home sadness for yours truly, as I just never seem to be around when things like this go on sale:
Taste of Cinema presents the Top 10 director-cinematographer teams in cinema history. For some reason, the list does not include Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister. How dare they.
There will be a Paddington Bear movie. That’s about all there is to say about that.
Over at Movies.com, the ever-talented Monika Bartyzel talks about Actresses Trapped in Bland Monotony. Oh Rachel McAdams, you were so much fun when you were the villain and not Harrison Ford’s friendly boss.
Pajiba’s Dustin Rowles opens up his box of traumatic and embarrassing personal memories with The Most Traumatic Moviegoing Experience of My Life Had Nothing to Do with the Film, an essay about young love. Word to those who are sensitive and vote for anti-marriage equality amendments: it involves some sexual situations. I would rate his essay, in honor of the MPAA, NC-17 for smut.
HitFix presents a list of 15 breakout stars of summer. The likes of Aubrey Plaza, Zoe Kazan and future Robocop Joel Kinnaman.
Speaking of HitFix, they also debuted the first Mondo poster for the Alamo Drafthouse’s Summer of 1982 series. It’s a very nice Jason Edmiston created print for Conan The Barbarian. I can hear the lamentation of the women.
We close tonight with a supercut from ScreenRant’s own Ben Kendrick. It’s the Ultimate 2012 Summer Movie Trailer, and it’s exactly what its title suggests:
