the muppets movie

On Friday, we’ll get our second Muppet caper in three years courtesy of Muppets Most Wanted, the latest offering from writer-director James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller. The time since 2011’s The Muppets, also written by Jason Segel (the project’s poster boy, star and arguably biggest, giddiest fan) has seen a mini resurgence in Muppets mania, at least in some facets of the media. We’ve had Lady Gaga host a Muppets Spectacular full of singing and dancing and Jimmy Fallon invite the whole gang on his last episode of Late Night to perform “The Weight,” and we’ve seen Kermit and friends infiltrate everything from the Thanksgiving Day Parade to Lipton Tea commercials to brief moments of psychosis on 30 Rock. Whether or not Muppets Most Wanted is a success, it’s the gateway in a long list of examples that prove one important fact: it’s time for the return of The Muppet Show.


Game of Thrones Death Index

Well, that was a little awkward, was it not? Last night’s episode of Game of Thrones was far more glamorous than usual. The slightly more modern shift in setting, the sequins, the 15% increase in gay sex action. Also, the addition of Matt Damon to the cast is a real win for this series. It’s about time they started to pull in some bigger names, this is a cultural revolution, after all. Wait, that can’t be right. What did I just watch? Ah yes, Game of Thrones was off this week to make way for the premiere of Behind The Candelabra, the film about Liberace and his man-friend. So while there will not be any episode to review, Blog of Thrones continues its march across the lands of Westeros. There’s always something to discuss. So lets start with this week’s most important question: Was Behind the Candelabra fabulous, or what?



What is Movie News After Dark? It should be said up front that it had no prior knowledge of the woman in the image above prior to researching a story. Seriously, you guys… We begin this evening with an image of Sunny Leone, an actress of adult films who is about to make her Bollywood debut. It’s an example of another cross-over path from porn star to actual movie star, in so much as we’d consider Bollywood movies to be real movies (I’ve seen them, they are.) Leading with this story has nothing to do with my desire to lead with that picture.



Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut is a fun blast of unabashed girl power, with great performances and an honest look at a mother-daughter relationship. But there’s plenty for men too.
