Want a real-life story worthy of Marvel Comics’ long-running series What If? The current wave of Marvel movies could have happened a lot earlier, or much differently, if plans begun in the early ’70s had come to fruition.
The late French director Alain Resnais, who died just a week ago, was responsible for some of the most powerful films in French cinema. The concentration camp documentary Night and Fog led to Hiroshima Mon Amour, which developed a narrative take on memory and relationships that deepened in Last Year at Marienbad and Je t’aime Je t’aime. (That’s just the beginning of his work.) Resnais is known as a science fiction fan, and genre and experimental fiction crept into his films in significant ways.
Resnais was also a lover of comic books. He claims he learned English by reading Marvel Comics, and he once wanted to make a Tintin film, decades before Spielberg and Jackson got around to it.

That announcement has now taken place and, below, you can watch and listen to him talking about the controversy. Read More »

Between The Station Agent, The Visitor, and Win Win, we’ve developed a pretty good idea of what to expect from Tom McCarthy: low-key indies with touches of humor and pathos. But he’s shaking things up a bit with his upcoming The Cobbler by throwing fantasy and Adam Sandler into the mix. And now his next project after that could be an even bigger departure.
McCarthy has signed on to write and possibly direct the Tommysaurus Rex movie, based on an Image Comics book about a boy and his dinosaur pal. Get more details after the jump.
