What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a vicious diatribe away from being a vicious diatribe. But mostly it tells you the who, what, where, when and why so serious of the movie world.
We begin tonight with a cry for help, from a Mother of Dragons who is without the latter half of her title. Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen needs your help. If you see her dragons, send a raven.
Movies.com has a great profile of Star Wars poster artist Jim Campbell, the father of Movies.com writer Christopher Campbell. He talks about the design he made that never quite ended up on your bedroom wall.
The folks at ScreenRant have a review of Prometheus: The Art of the Film, a book that I’ve also had a chance to peruse. It’s a great little coffee table book filled with wicked spoilers, but it also displays some of the stunning production design in Ridley Scott’s latest.

Thanks to the folks at Batman-News.com and SoundCloud, you can now listen to samples of Hans Zimmer’s Dark Knight Rises score while you try and interpret what the titles of the songs say about the film’s plot. Sadly, there is not track called, “Broken Back Blues.”
Director Rian Johnson has written about 3D. His thoughts are fascinating. Go read it.
Guy Lodge at HitFix has a new essay about Why Rock of Ages reveals Tom Cruise as one of the last real movie stars. After the performance of MIB 3, I’d say Will Smith is probably in that category, as well.
Collider has the first official synopsis for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium: “In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government of?cial, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.”
NBC has released their fall schedule, with Community returning October 19. Rejoice.
