--- Add Some Swinton - Tilda's role in Terry Gilliam's next movie, which I was super excited about (this is a meeting of like minds I wanna see), is only a cameo, apparently. She's doing just one day of shooting. Hey, every movie should at least have a dash of Swinton to spice things up, I guess. Positive spin!
--- Biggest Bond - If you want nay need your "Daniel Craig in a tight suit" fix to be as big as a small skyscraper then you're in luck, and a day early at that - Skyfall will be released on November 8th on IMAX, a full 24 hours before it gets released on those puny little normal screens. (That's here in the States; it's opening a couple weeks earlier in some other countries.) Also it just got a PG-13 rating for violence and "some sexuality," which doesn't sound like the full-on explicit penetration I'd really been hoping for but I suppose it'll do.
Dominic Cooper's purple underpants, will be released on March 8th, 2013, a month earlier than planned. Besides Dom's underoos it also stars Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace and Isabelle Huppert, but they're all overshadowed by you know what.
--- Dodd & Friends - I didn't participate in The Film Experience's group-think on Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master because as I said the other day, I remain slightly baffled, and I wanna see it again. I am happy to see from what everybody's saying over there though that I am not alone. Mind you this is not a bad bafflement. But I gotta see it again. (With the NYFF starting this weekend I have no idea when I will get around to it, though.)
Here's an interview with its director (which I'm putting off reading til after I see the movie.)
--- New Old River - River Phoenix died with eleven days of shooting left on what would be his final film, called Dark Blood, so the studio shut the picture down never to be finished. Until now - it's director has cut together a version and screened it in the Netherlands, and AICN has a review. Unsurprisingly, since none of the intended final scenes were ever shot, it's more interesting as a time-capsule than an accomplished product, says the reviewer.
