What is Movie News After Dark? It’s the only post-dusk movie news column you’ll need. At least until tomorrow night.
We begin tonight with more photos from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the one by David Fincher. Why? Because even though we’ve shown Dragon Tattoo photos before, I still find them interesting. More interesting than any other visual stimuli released on this rather drab Tuesday, at least.
AMC could very well be working on a talk show that would run just after episodes of The Walking Dead, a post-episode recap show. The folks over at io9 present several well-articulated ways for how AMC’s zombie talk show could be brilliant. As long as it’s live.
Also in the realm of hows and whys is Movies.com’s Erik Davis, who would like you to know why The Lion King 3D will not ruin your childhood memories. First and foremost is the fact that you are an adult now, so get over it.
In the realm of very attractive people doing very attractive things, burlesque lady Dita Von Teese has joined Nurse 3D, the film that led with a promo photo of a completely nude Paz de la Huerta covered in blood. In fairness, we will now display a photo of Dita Von Teese:
Also visually stimulating is this new t-shirt from Glennz, my personal favorite place to buy shirts that make people laugh when I do decide to go into public, featuring a mix between Mr. T and Robocop. I pity the fool, indeed.
Over at Cinema Blend, Mack Rawden posits profusely (and somewhat flagrantly) why movie popcorn is the worst. My only question: the worst what? Worst thing you could possibly put into your body according to doctors, scientists and people who know better? Possibly.
Stephen King and Steven Spielberg, a pair of Steves who drive geeks nuts, will be pairing up with Showtime to bring “Under the Dome” to your television screen. The 2009 King book will morph into a drama series about a town that is inexplicably sealed off by the rest of the world. Seems like the right format for the book, to say the least.
Jurassic Park and Mission: Impossible screenwriter David Koepp has signed up to write the Thin Man remake for Rob Marshall and Johnny Depp. He is, after all, a master of adaptations, so why not a remake? Well, not a remake, but a re-adaptation of the original novel by Dashiell Hammett. Ah, I see what they’re doing there.
We close with something that would possibly be more appropriate in 11 days, when the 10th anniversary of 9/11 is felt in full force across the globe, but I prefer to be timely above being sentimental. Also, that shit is pretty sad no matter what day we talk about it. Master of mash-ups Dan Meth has created this montage, found via Gizmodo, in which the World Trade Center is seen as a Hollywood star. Check it out so that you never forget.
