Only Lovers Left Alive is funny?

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 4, 2013 15:09:45 November 4, 2013 15:09:45

After premiering at Cannes and screening at TIFF, Only Lovers Left Alive, aka the vampire movie with Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, finally has a trailer. And it looks funny, maybe? Funny is not a word I would use to describe writer/director Jim Jarmusch—usually I would go with obtuse, difficult, not for everyone. Full Story

As we enter our third week of Hiddlemas, celebrations move to America as the patron saint himself, Saint Tom the Huge Dork, has come to ring in the festivities by, what else, being a huge dork. But this time, he’s being a huge dork with kids, which is the most acceptable form of huge-dorkery. Full Story

Here are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner trick-or-treating with their kids yesterday, not in costume. Because, as she told Ellen Degeneres, the one year they dressed up, none of the other parents did, so Ben said he’s never doing it again. It was one of those wholesome family stories that everyone watches with a smile and that you’ll watch with a smile if you haven’t already and afterwards you’ll say to yourself, “Gosh darn, what a perfect family!” video platform Full Story

It was announced a few months ago that Justin Timberlake would play Neil Bogart in a biopic of the music producer’s life called Spinning Gold. Now The Hollywood Reporter says that they want Spike Lee to direct. Ummmm… I don’t need to see any more acting from JT but at the same time, I do want to see JT trying to act in front of Spike Lee. Full Story

This week in Duh, We Knew That news, Aaron Taylor-Johnson has officially joined the cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron as Quicksilver, the one hero more worthless than Hawkeye. Word that Taylor-Johnson was being tapped for the role came out early last summer and then he gave some not-very-coy interview during Kick-Ass 2 press that pretty well confirmed it: he was gearing up to play the guy who can run really fast. Full Story

Whenever Sarah talks about JJ Abrams, she always refers to him and his super secrety secrets approach to his projects. I get it. Sh-t is leaking everywhere these days. And he wants to preserve the integrity of his work. You know who’s also super secrety with all of his secrets? Christopher Nolan. Full Story

It has come to my attention that there is some unrest about the Veronica Mars movie. People - in my case, Sarah, who thought that the trailer looks “janky” and is being a good sport about this article - have had some critiques about it that center around the recent featurette. The complaints (and I’ve heard them from other places) seem to fall into two categories. Full Story

James McAvoy needs to hope again

I’m a sucker for goose fleshy music in a movie trailer if it’s done well. Which is an obvious thing to say. But the goose fleshy music attempt is so often attempted, with sh-tty results, that it feels more and more like it doesn’t happen enough. It happens here because we have two master narrators at work who can match the music with their voices. Full Story

Now that Jamie Dornan’s been confirmed as Charlie Hunnam’s replacement for Robert Pattinson in Fifty Shades Of Grey, the paps have a new target. Check out Jamie with his wife Amelia Warner in London this weekend. The look on his face is cracking me up. He’s like, already? Oh yes already. Full Story

The Germany premiere of Thor: The Dark World occurred over the weekend and—gasp—a rare wild Hemsworth appeared. We’ve been poking at Chris Hemsworth for his lackluster presence in his own franchise’s promotions, and after the London premiere I didn’t expect to see him again until the US premiere in another week, but lo, there he is in Berlin. Full Story
