This Roger Rabbit deleted scene explains so much. A video has been brought to our attention from the DVD of Robert Zemeckis‘ 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In it, Zemeckis and his crew discuss a deleted scene they refer to as “The Pig Head Sequence” which was the first completed scene in the film, but was later cut out.

Details on the Terminator Genesis plot are scarce. We know all the actors who’ve been cast in the 2015 reboot, the director, and the writers, yet how it all ties together remains a mystery. That mystery could slowly be unraveling, though, if we’re to believe a new report.
Possible plot points from Terminator Genesis have leaked online and they describe the film as kind of a Back to the Future Part II of the series. According to the rumors, this new film will jump between, and interact with timelines of the first Terminator film, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and bounce even earlier than that, with Sarah Connor appearing as a child.

Wes Anderson‘s movies have always felt like kindred spirits to one another. They’re films made with similar visual styles and tonalities; stories that could very easily share one universe. His latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, feels that way too, but for the first time Anderson has made a movie about that very concept.
This film is well aware it is the 8th feature film by writer/director Wes Anderson, because here Anderson wants to explore the nature of storytelling itself. The passing down of stories; how stories tend to be similar; the real meaning of originality. He does this by framing the film in multiple layers, Inception style, until we get to the main narrative.

And that is most definitely the case. This is, again, a story about how we digest other stories. Anderson’s approach is to make the most un-Wes Anderson movie ever, under the guise of it being the most-Wes Anderson movie ever. As a result he’s made one of the best Wes Anderson movies.
