What is Movie News After Dark? It’s just as movie-obsessed as you are, which is why it continues to give you all this fun and fancy content on a nightly basis. Every weeknight at 10p Central, 11p Eastern and 6a in Istanbul (which, depending on the season, is still during a dark time of day). We begin tonight with the most adorable promotional photo for a hardline sci-fi movie ever. Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace aren’t doing service to the seriousness of Ridley Scott’s upcoming epic, but they sure are having fun.


Just Like Being There

Inside Just Like Being There, a fairly straightforward documentary about the world of rock show “gig posters” and the artist community behind them, is a big idea. Intended or not, the film presents us with the notion that in today’s pop culture landscape we do a lot of consuming of media. From mp3 downloads to streaming films to podcasts and the like, we spend so much of our time consuming everything we can get our hands on. Lost, in so many instances, are the opportunities to experience things. So in those increasingly rare instances — that time you saw The Black Keys play in a basement in Akron, Ohio, the time Tokyo Police Club played that tiny club in Buffalo, NY — it’s wonderful to have connective tissue to that experience. Such is the brilliance of a good gig poster. One look and you’re transported back to that experience. And the emotion you feel for that experience is no different than the emotion expended to make said poster. Therein lies the brilliance of what is exposed within Scout Shannon’s directorial debut: it’s not about the art, so much as it is about how the art makes us feel.
