What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a fast and furious chase through the world of entertainment news. Film, television, song and dance, it’s all covered here. Alright, so there isn’t much dancing tonight. But there is mention of the greatest movies of all-time, Lena Dunham’s bite, the girls of Bond, The Avengers, Mad Men and my personal favorite, the craziness of Top Gear.
We begin this evening with the first shot from Brian De Palma’s Passion, a film that is apparently about Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace making out in the back of a car. Or it’s the tale of “a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business.” I’m guessing its the later. Either way, this first photo has left its mark.
As many will note, earlier today we published a list of the Ten Greatest Movies of All-Time taken from an extensive survey of online and new media critics, many of whom weren’t asked to participate in the upcoming Sight & Sound Magazine poll. What’s interesting to me isn’t just the list, but the methodology behind each person’s choices. Pajiba critic Dan Carlson explains his choices on his personal blog, while Drew McWeeney walks us through his process over at HitFix, and Going the Distance scribe Geoff LaTulippe wrote of his method on his own blog. Ultimately, the list is great. Fill your Netflix queues with its splendor. What I love, is the ‘whys’ behind it all and the discussion it has bred.
Over at Pajiba, Dustin Rowles prepares for the Grief Raging that will come if Community is cancelled, especially now that 30 Rock is said to be nearing one more renewal for a shortened final season. The same formula could be applied to Community and Parks and Recreation, marking the end of NBC as anything worth watching unless you’re still really into Betty White.
Speaking of “girls,” the folks at CableTV.com sent over this infographic of sorts dedicated to The Girls of Bond, better known as all the beautiful women James Bond has bedded over the years. They sent it along with a compliment about my Blog of Thrones column. And like any dame in the face 007, flattery will get you everywhere with me. Click the thumbnail below to see the entire thing.
Cinema Blend’s ladies have put together some speculation about what The Avengers may tell us about Iron Man 3. And while I enjoy their back and forth, I think they missed my own speculation that comes from who gets in the car with Tony Stark at the end of the movie. That’s all I’m saying.
In celebration of Fox’s hard marketing line around Prometheus and their refusal to keep anything about it secret, Movieline presents a list of 9 Spoiler-Filled Trailers That Gave It All Away. That Speed trailer is a classic spoiler bomb, if there ever was one.
I am of the opinion that there is no greater non-fiction joy on television than that of watching Top Gear, the BBC show that takes the three stooges of automobile journalism and allows them to become proprietors of absolute insanity. In the latest episode aired here in the US, they get onto the set of The Sweeney, an action film starring Ray Winstone and set out to direct a car chase scene. Shenanigans ensue, naturally. Check out a clip below and go forth into the night with a smile.
