I’m not going to pretend I know what the hell is going on in the trailer for The Power of Few. What I do know is that it has a few recognizable faces, such as Christopher Walken, Christian Slater, Anthony Anderson, and Moon Bloodgood in some sort of multi-perspective crime caper.
I don’t even know that I believe this is a movie. I think someone just cut a bunch of unrelated GIFs together into a fake trailer. You know, for fun. I want to loop pretty much every moment featuring Walken in this trailer, over and over. Read More »
Our apologies. Even if you live in Los Angeles, posting about Jason Reitman‘s awesome live readings at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is torture. The casts are so fantastic, the projects so good and yet it’s virtually impossible to go because they sell out so quickly. In fact, they sell-out weeks before the script or cast is even announced.
I was lucky enough to see The Princess Bride a few months back with Paul Rudd, Mindy Kaling, Patton Oswalt and returning cast members Cary Elwes and Fred Savage. Reitman has also done The Apartment with Natalie Portman and Steve Carell, The Breakfast Club with Aaron Paul and Jennifer Garner and more. It’s super-impressive.
The penultimate reading, long sold out, happens February 16 and it’s Quentin Tarantino‘s Reservoir Dogs. That by itself is insane. But instead of simply casting alternative famous people to play roles actors like Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi and Tim Roth made famous, Reitman and co-curator Elvis Mitchell decided to change the entire race of the project. They’ve selected an all-black cast. Read the list after the jump. Read More »
We bitch and complain that Hollywood keeps making unneeded remakes and sequels but, I think we can all agree, Scary Movie 5 is a home run. Those last three films were just so clever and funny and didn’t at all begin a trend of some of the worst movies in recently memory like Epic Movie and Superhero Movie. Yup, Scary Movie 5 is the one we’re all going to get behind and Dimension has tapped writers Stephen Leff, John Aboud and Michael Colton (the two latter of which helped write The Comebacks) to bring back the funny early next year. Read which stars they’re hoping to bring back and more after the break. Read More »
