Ira Levin

Rosemary's Baby

Because nothing says “fun” like a Roman Polanski horror flick from the 1970’s, NBC has decided that their best way of turning their sinking ship of a network around is to transform Rosemary’s Baby into a shiny new limited series for primetime. Except this time around, the young couple and their demon spawn eschew Manhattan for Paris, “where this edge-of-your-seat thriller unfolds.” Apparently, Satanism is en vogue in that part of the world this time of year. The network is mum on details at this point, but offers up that it’s a modern retelling of the Ira Levin novel. Isn’t that a bit heavy for network TV? Call me old fashioned, but sandwiching in devil rape between whatever those crazy kids are doing on Camp this week and a rerun of Parks and Rec might not be the best move for NBC. Fun fact: I wrote one of my very first film reviews for this movie. It was one sentence: “My uterus is very, very sad.”



What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a little early this evening, but it’s still the same badass nightly movie news column that you’ve come to love and mostly ignore. Tonight it spends time around the globe, traveling to the south of France, the Hindu Kush, the future, the 18th century, the end of the Cold War, Asgard and Sequelville (it’s right between West L.A. and Century City). But it always comes back to you, dear reader, to bring you the goods. And the bads. And well, you know. The most interesting thing at Cannes yesterday might not have been Lars von Trier’s movie, Melancholia (which we reviewed and, as it stands, liked very much), it was von Trier’s comments during the press conference. From sympathizing with Hitler to extremely young naked women, he let it all out. To their credit, Vulture has captured all the best of it and delivered a list of the 10 most controversial things Lars von Trier said at the Melancholia press conference. “Should I talk about Spider-Man now?”
