The magical powers of the McFassy Bromance have their claws in me this month... WOW.  Didn't think we'd get anything better than Eisenberg & Garfield quite so soon.

Re that crazy-good WATCHMEN trailer...EW's Comic-Con cover and preview piece are online...and now it may be time to go back and watch the '07 Comic-Con panel vid.

RE that hilarious HANCOCK "unscripted" interview footage...this news here gives that video a whole other level of, um, context. Heh.

This is both scary...and exciting: a VALLEY GIRL musical?

Oddly, all the truly hawt photos of the TWILIGHT kids are...inside the issue?

This is good...this is much better... (HT mediocrechick)

So why go with the less sexy shot on the cover?  Toning it down or sumptin'?  Hmm.

I laughed, but was very interested, when I read this:
Because Edward is a vampire who has renounced sucking human blood (he and his coven feed on animals), he struggles to keep himself under control. Bella risks her life to be near him. "He has to hold back," says [TWILIGHT's director Catherine] Hardwicke. "That's the sexual tension, the thing that keeps people reading. Is he going to turn her into a vampire?" Time magazine's profile on the 34-year-old Meyer calls it "the erotics of abstinence."
Interested...mainly because the ideas of vampires and eros are so utterly, permanently entwined in my head, that this concepts of vampires and abstinence is...intriguing.

A Comic-Con special for DEXTER (hat tip to Seat42F)...

PS: You can send the WWK girls questions for the DEXTER panel because Kristin is the mod! See this post for info.

Truth be told, I am much more excited about the TV show TRUE BLOOD than about this movie (more on TB later)...but this is one hawt cover!

Tip O' The Hat to Anne Thompson, who in the same article says:

With Comic-Con around the corner (it's the last week of July in San Diego) Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, which doesn't open until December but is already on the cover of EW, is one of the movies sure to pop at the biggest movie launch platform I can think of right now. Is there one bigger?

Cannes is one thing. Sundance and Toronto another. But the impact of Comic-Con on the movie marketplace is huge.

Hallelujah, sister.  I have a lot more to say about Comic-Con...even though (DRAT) I cannot take time off to attend, there are tons of things that I will be covering obsessively for y'all.  Promise.

His review of WALL-E...a few excerpts below.

Let oil soar above $140 a barrel. Let layoffs and foreclosures proliferate like California’s fires. Let someone else worry about the stock market’s steepest June drop since the Great Depression. In our political culture, only one question mattered: What was Wesley Clark saying about John McCain and how loudly would every politician and bloviator in the land react?

Unable to take another minute of this din, I did what any sensible person might do and fled to the movies. More specifically, to an animated movie in the middle of a weekday afternoon. What escape could be more complete?


...Indeed, sitting among rapt children mostly under 12, I felt as if I’d stepped through a looking glass. This movie seemed more realistically in touch with what troubles America this year than either the substance or the players of the political food fight beyond the multiplex’s walls.

While the real-life grown-ups on TV were again rebooting Vietnam, the kids at “Wall-E” were in deep contemplation of a world in peril — and of the future that is theirs to make what they will of it. Compare any 10 minutes of the movie with 10 minutes of any cable-news channel, and you’ll soon be asking: Exactly who are the adults in our country and who are the cartoon characters?


One of the great things about art, including popular art, is that it can hit audiences at a profound level beyond words. That includes children. The kids at “Wall-E” were never restless, despite the movie’s often melancholy mood and few belly laughs. They seemed to instinctually understand what “Wall-E” was saying; they didn’t pepper their chaperones with questions along the way. At the end they clapped their small hands. What they applauded was not some banal cartoonish triumph of good over evil but a gentle, if unmistakable, summons to remake the world before time runs out.

I have to post another one (courtesy [profile] dianora2)...LOL

(There are others out there, including a great one for CHUCK)

OK NBCU - where are the Tim Gunn and BSG ones? Hellboy and...Starbuck? Head Six? Adama?

No. Tigh. It's gotta be Tigh. Hehheheheh.

As someone who is a tad obsessed with motion graphics, this site is so cool I almost died. Especially nice is that they are currently featuring two of my recent favorites on the home page: STRANGER THAN FICTION and IRON MAN. It's such a fine art, rarely discussed...think MAD MEN opening credits. Another one of my all-time favorites: the Marvel Films logo.

Hulu has David Lynch's LOST HIGHWAY, as well as the classic MEN IN BLACK, up this week!

This guy has made a list of every friggin' TV marathon coming up in the USA! *impressed* (HT Mo Ryan)

In addition to the scrillions of other TV & film panels at Nerdvana this year, there is a possible DOC WHO/TORCHWOOD  panel on Thursday midday, according to a commenter in this post.

You can ask the one-and-only JOHN WATERS questions, via PopCandy, until tomorrow.

As part of the publicity for GET SMART, the Apple Store Soho taped Stephen Colbert interviewing Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway!!!!!!!!!! If Apple does what they usually do, this interview will go up on iTunes shortly in the Podcast section. Keep an eye on this URL: "Filmmaker Talks: Get Smart". If that link isn't working for you, go to Podcasts --> TV & Film --> Filmmaker Talks: Get Smart. Wheeeeee! <3 <3 <3

Very soon this movie THE WACKNESS is opening.  I saw it at the Tribeca Film Festival, it was really sweet, funny, well done.  Check it:

"Have you gone to an art house lately? Some screens are literally the size of the flat screens people have in their living rooms right now," Mr. Atkinson said, referring to the shrinking marketplace for independent films. "For those people who are searching for films made for adults, there's almost no reason to go to the theater anymore. It's reaching the point where there will be six big movies released a year, all made for a half-billion dollars, that everyone will see on a single day, and other than that, people will just stay home and watch Netflix. It's already happening."
proggrrl: (Bette D - ORLY?)
I've been curious to see how this was going to come out, since I'm 1) plopped squarely in the middle of its "target audience" and 2) a big, big fan of the original film (which you MUST see, ladies! now!)...looks good to me:

ETA: the high-res version is on Yahoo over here.
