What is Movie News After Dark? It’s like that time your boyfriend promised to call, but he didn’t. Then he called, like, way later and you still forgave him anyway because you love him. It’s exactly like that.
Nathan Adams and Cole Abaius team up to handle the post this evening (hint: Nathan wrote the funny ones), and we lead off with some new pictures from The Daily Mail of Spider-Man swinging around in the air on wires. They mostly just look like Spider-Man swinging around in the air on wires, but I think that’s pretty cool because those last movies looked mostly like cartoon Spider-Man swinging around in the air on wires. If I wanted to see that I would just watch cartoons. I like that they’re making the effort of actually hauling some poor sap up there for practical effects.
Variety reports that Ariel Schuman and Henry Joost, the guys who directed last year’s found footage freakout Catfish, are going to make Paranormal Activity 3. That seems like a good fit, as both Catfish and the Paranormal Activity movies are generally more concerned with telling people that they’re real and looking hand held than they are actually being good movies.
Glee Live! 3D! is a thing that’s actually going to happen. Turns out the cast of the hit show about annoying kids singing even more annoying versions of already annoying songs has hit the road for a concert tour, and footage of a live show is going to be filmed in 3D for a theatrical release. Justin Bieber must be pissed.
This T-Rex cake exists, and since I want it, life will find a way. But seriously, they couldn’t build a Dilophosaurus that spits frosting?
MTV reports that the ridiculous rumor that the entire cast of Terminator will be back for Terminator 5 is just a ridiculous rumor. But the ridiculous idea of having old Schwarzenegger in it is still a ridiculous reality. As long as Justin Lin actually makes this thing, he’s still not sure.
The first full length Conan trailer has been put up over at Yahoo. It’s got a lot of stuff in it that looks like it would be in a movie about Conan. Only instead of Schwarzenegger, this time Conan looks a lot like Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones. I’m waiting to hear if there’s any sweet orgy scenes in this thing or not before I go see it.
Since it’s only a year away, Reelz Channel has done some investigating and compiled everything we know about The Avengers from the previous movies, interviews with the actors, and the most likely of speculations. Hopefully, they’ll be updating the list on a monthly basis each time Jeremy Renner takes a new franchise-leading role.
Coming Soon put up a new banner for X-Men: First Class that will start showing up in the UK soon. It doesn’t really have anything new in it, but it’s still cool because it mostly features January Jones’ huge boobs and Kevin Bacon looking like James Bond.
The fine folks over at Alien Loves Predator put together this fantastic map of New York City featuring all the movie icons they could shove into the five boroughs. Where else can you see Tootsie hanging out with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man? Plus, there’s a contest for whomever can name all the movie references…
Warner Bros. put out a press release today announcing that they have acquired Flixster. Seeing as Flixster acquired Rotten Tomatoes at some point already, this means that Warner Bros. will now own Rotten Tomatoes. This isn’t supposed to have any real effect on the site, as it will continue to be run separately from Warner’s movie division, but it’s still weird. Anything that puts the studios one step closer to controlling which opinions get out about their studios and which don’t is bad. On a completely unrelated note, I’ve really loved the stuff Warner Bros. has been doing lately, if only my blog was Rotten Tomatoes recognized so more people could hear my views…
Finally, we close tonight with a cinematic wormhole of sorts. Jason Eisener struck gold when he made a fake trailer for a fake movie called Hobo With a Shotgun that was featured alongside some other zany fake trailers on Grindhouse prints. Now that Hobo is a real feature length film (and since Eisener gave a hell of an interview on Reject Radio), the production decided to host its own trailer contest, and the winner from Keith Hodder, Jerrad Pulham and Peter Strauss is below. It’s, brilliantly, called Van Gore:
