What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly collection of trinkets for the weary-eyed, movie-loving masses. A testament to man’s quest for knowledge, the internet’s infinite wealth of silliness and cat videos, and a totem for the lost souls of movie fandom. Come here, my children, come here and bask in the glory of the best links of the day.
We begin tonight’s sermon with a shot of Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence looking very 1929 in Serena, the upcoming film from In a Better World director Susanne Bier. It’s about a pair of newlyweds who move from Boston to the wild mountains of North Carolina and produce off-spring. Shenanigans ensue.
My good friend Peter Hall over at Movies.com has a bit of a problem. He’s really got a thing for Starship Troopers. And with a fourth, animated installment to the series started by Paul Veerhoven’s, uh… classic on the way, it’s simply feeding into his addiction. It’s unhealthy, to say the last. Also, I really want these Starship Troopers 4 power suits to be a real thing.
If you follow critic Eric D. Snider on Twitter, you may have already seen this brilliant little ditty. Also, if you were around back in 1998, you may have also read his Clash of the Titanic script treatment in The Daily Universe. Yes, I know that was before some of you were born. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t hilarious.
Over at The AV Club, Paul Feig is walking through Freaks and Geeks episode-by-episode. He even tells an adorable story about an 11-year old Samm Levine doing an impromptu William Shatner impression to beat out 11-year old Shia LaBeouf for the role of Neal. That happened.
“Gravity opens with a continuous 17-minute shot that sets the stage for the protagonist’s (Bullock) desperate attempt to stay alive and return to Earth after the aforementioned asteroid shower wipes out her fellow astronauts – save for a co-pilot (George Clooney), who was away at the time.” Alfonso Cuaron is a madman. The world is better because of this fact.
Hollywood.com’s Matt Patches presents Five Women Who Should Take Over The Hunger Games now that Gary Ross is done with the franchise. By the end of the list he’s one Kathryn Bigelow away from answering the time-honored question: Quick, name all the female directors currently working in Hollywood. Go.
Did you watch last night’s season finale of Justified? If not, leave. If so, you should read Joanna Robinson’s write-up, “He Just Saw A Man In a Hat.” Goddamnit, that was a brilliant way for one of the best shows on TV to end its year.
