What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a delightful little sampler of all that is right in the world of movie blogging. Even on a rather slow news day, typical for the day after April Fool’s as sites try to weed out the weekend’s news that wasn’t fake, we can still find plenty of things worth your reading eyes.
BBC is reporting that Angry Birds will become an animated series, which may then be spun off into a movie. “I am happy to say we are going to roll out a weekly animation series this year of short format content. It’s a great way for us to connect with our existing fans, to give them more and keep them engaged” says Rovio’s head of animation Nick Dorra. He then added (in his mind), “We can’t wait to continue to print f–king money with this crazy little birds and that unbearable theme song.”
CriticWire has a solid piece about Eric D. Snider’s next project, called The Shame List, in which he confesses to 25 of his most egregious cinematic blind spots. It’s more than just admitting that you’ve never seen Empire Strikes Back (something I rectified last year), and an honest look at something all critics have, mostly because there are a lot of goddamn movies out there. You know whose blind spots I want to see? Roger Ebert. Or perhaps Manohla Dargis. That would be fascinating.
We close tonight on the Game of Thrones kick. Courtesy of the folks at JoBlo, here’s 10-minutes of then-prince, now King Joffrey getting slapped. It’s the same slap over and over again, but it’s so worth it.
