What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie and entertainment news column that, now that it’s a year old and feeling mature, is looking to bring you only the best links of the day. Think of it as your one-stop-shop for the best of the entertainment web. If you didn’t see it here, it probably wasn’t that good. If we missed it, just email it to email@example.com and we’ll consider it for tomorrow. We do this every night.
Roger Erik Tinch, the curator of Reelizer, presents his The Top Ten Movie Posters of 2011 (Alternative Works), which includes art so good that it might make your little hearts break. Pocketbooks, I mean pocketbooks. If you can find places to buy prints, that is. Also, it serves as a reminder that I need to frame my Aaron Horkey Jurassic Park poster and put it up so as to make all my friends jealous.
Mark Ruffalo explains the depth of The Avengers to WSJ’s Speakeasy: “You have all these disparate egos, superheroes in this and that, and they refuse to give up some of their positions in order to make a more perfect union and to join the team. That’s really what the whole movie is about: subjugating your own best interest momentarily to further that of the whole.” Way to keep it simple, Hulk.
This evening’s featured art is that of brilliant drawer Sam Spratt, who has taken one of the more enjoyable subplots of Community‘s third season and created a legit poster for Inspector Spacetime. The Question, Constable, isn’t Where but When. Quick, somewhere tell me both where and when I can buy a print. Never mind, I found a place and the time was ten minutes ago.
Aaron Sorkin has written a musical about Houdini. Godspell and Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz has written the musical numbers. Hugh Jackman will escape from boxes. I will be adding this to my list of things to see on Broadway, right below Book of Mormon.
Below you will find a list of the 10 films that remain in the running for Best Visual Effects award in the upcoming 84th Academy Awards. As you will see, there’s plenty left to be excited about, including Rise of the Planet of the Apes still in the running. Now if only we can get Andy Serkis a Best Supporting nod.
We close this evening with a new video from Lee Hardcastle, the talented claymation filmmaker who we featured recently in Short Film of the Day with his film T is for Toilet. He’s brought that same verve to his latest work, Pingu’s The Thing.
