What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly column dedicated to having a bit of fun before sending you off to bed. And we don’t care if you ate your vegetables, we’re always down for dessert.
We begin this evening with a first image from Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, in which Tom Lenk and Nathan Fillion play Verges and Dogberry, respectively. It’s that film Whedon just sort of made. He does fun things when he’s not making the highest grossing movie of the year and all that.
1. Should The Dark Knight Rises campaign for Oscar? – Yes, absolutely. If it feels itself worthy. This article from The LA Times seems to think that the Aurora shooting should be part of that discussion. It really isn’t a related issue. The quality of The Dark Knight Rises has nothing to do with a mad man killing innocent people. Warner Bros. is playing it cool on all things TDKR, out of respect, but it really shouldn’t have anything to do with an Oscar run.
2. Drafthouse Films is Wrong- The Austin-based distributor slash purveyor of delicious in-theater milkshakes has picked up the rights to Quentin Dupieux’s Wrong, the follow-up to the director’s hit cult oddity Rubber. It’s a movie that involves William Fichtner. I’m sold.
4. Five Favorite Films with Timothy Spall – The folks at Rotten Tomatoes have this long-running series of which I’ve long been a fan, in which they ask various stars to list their five favorite movies. The great character player Timothy Spall is up this week, with some awesome picks.
