What is Movie News After Dark? It doesn’t matter. Just go with it…
We begin tonight with a very cool bit of concept art from Tron: Uprising, the new animated show that has spun off from the Tron: Legacy film and the rebirth of the Tron franchise in general. This feels like a much better idea than a sequel to Legacy, as this universe has always seemed built for animation anyway. To add to the buzz around the show, Gamma Squad has Six Reasons Why You Should Watch Tron: Uprising.
George Lucas is going to run off into the woods and make a bunch of movies with a hammer and wood in his garage that you’ll never get to see. Na-na-nanana. (That’s what you get for not appreciating everything he’s done for you, nerds.)
The folks at The John Carter Files have pointed us in the direction of this John Carter 50s style trailer, just in time to mention the fact that the John Carter DVD and Blu-ray will be in stores on June 5:
Movies.com’s Christopher Campbell has a great round-up of what people are saying about Prometheus now that some bloggerati have seen it in LA and NYC. He could have waited until I have seen the movie (tomorrow night) and given the definitive opinion, but I guess I’ll forgive. But I shan’t forget.
If you think that Todd Phillips has made some messed up movies recently, consider yourself on notice. Until you see Klown, the absurd film that Phillips will soon remake for people who can’t read subtitles, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. First, watch the red band Klown trailer. Next, check out this new poster, courtesy of Drafthouse Films and the folks at Movieline:
“It’s not Khan. That’s a myth. Everyone’s saying it is, but it’s not. I think people just want to have a scoop. It annoys me – it’s beyond the point to just ferret around for spoilers all the time to try to be the first to break them. It just spoils the film. It masquerades as interest in the movie but really it’s just nosiness and impatience. You just want to say, ‘Oh f— off! Wait for the film.'” Simon Pegg has had enough of your shit, internet movie websites. Stop trolling for scoops with non-news.
We close tonight with the brief first episode in a new webseries called The World of Snowboy & Crow, brought to our attention by its director, Ken Turner. It shall take you into “the world of Snowboy, a boy made from snow, and his friend a Crow. These two misunderstood child-like characters live in a snowy landscape full of vampires, ufos, monsters, death and love.” All of those things are pretty cool and the animation is just plain pretty. Consider us watching, Mr. Turner.
