Anyone who has ever read Sandman, the genre-bending comic written by Neil Gaiman, has probably thought about the idea of Tom Hiddleston as Morpheus, the title character and personification of Dream. While there was a point where Neil Gaiman was pushing forward the idea of Benedict Cumberbatch as Morpheus, now that the actor is locked into Doctor Strange he’s probably out of the running for any other comic book role. But “Hiddleston is still out there,” as Gaiman said when giving a semi-annual update on the project. Read More »

In Son of a Gun Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites are prisoners in a West Australian prison, where McGregor offers the younger Thwaites protection inside in exchange for help breaking out, which leads to the two pulling a big job outside. Once out of prison, there’s a gold heist, and a sense that betrayal is only a moment away, and the allure of the enigmatic and possibly criminally seasoned woman played by Alicia Vikander. Check out the Son of a Gun trailer after the break. Read More »
I’ve been way more interested in the Grumpy Cat television movie than I have any right to be. But something about the ridiculousness of the first Internet meme turned movie and the perfect voice casting of Aubrey Plaza has captured my imagination. We posted the Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever trailer last week, and it sadly looked like the quality you’d expect from a Lifetime Network movie — I almost deleted the scheduled recording off my DVR.
But Aubrey Plaza appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and talked about the film, which has prevented any rash DVR decisions on my part. Plaza has me interested in the film again, after claiming the movie will blow people away because it is “the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen”, calling it “so confusing, operating on so many levels of irony that I can’t even tap into them all — and I think Lifetime is only maybe tapped into one level.” Plaza also discussed working with Grumpy Cat and having to deal with her large entourage and management group. Watch Aubrey Plaza’s funny Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance embedded after the jump.

Why Don’t You Play in Hell is the biggest, weirdest, most joyous ode to genre moviemaking you’ll see this year. Sion Sono created this film as a blend of hyper-violent gangster pictures, coming of age stories, and romantic comedy. It follows a group of amateur filmmakers who call themselves the Fuck Bombers as they encounter the most unusual yakuza clan battle you’ve ever seen. As the filmmaking gets get in the middle, they find themselves with the opportunity to film the gangsters in action — and on 35mm, no less.
The film opens today and to celebrate we’ve got an exclusive Why Don’t You Play in Hell clip, featuring a scene that really needs no setup or explanation. There’s also the red-band trailer, which will explain a bit more of the story, inasmuch as there’s any way to explain it. Read More »
