--- The Suit Is Back - You can see the entirety of the first picture from Kick-Ass 2 over here, which includes Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars, costumed vigilante. I chose to focus in on the part of the picture that matters the most for us here, though.
--- Eastern Promises - The trailer for Brit Marling's new movie The East can be watched over here. As you might recall I am not a fan of Brit Marling, but this movie co-stars Ellen Page, Alexander Skarsgard (as sort of gay) and Patricia Clarkson, so you know I have no choice in this matter.
--- Monster Maker - Ryan Gosling desires men with scars. I made that sound like something it's not (and I did that on purpose).
--- Action Woman - Toni Collette is doing another TV series! And this couldn't be more of a 180 from The United States of Tara. It's a Bruckheimer produced thriller called Hostages that's about a female surgeon who gets dragged into a conspiracy when she is picked to perform surgery on the President. I am picturing Toni Collette walking slowly away from an explosion, and I like what I am picturing. Listen, as a fan of Toni who drinks in all her work like it's oxygen, I'll take whatever I can get.
--- A New Prince - I've been turning a bit of a blind eye to Sundance for the time being because I just get sort of sad, hearing about all the movies I am not seeing. But this caught my eye - David Gordon Green's new movie Prince Avalanche, which was a bit of a mystery for awhile, just screened, and The Playlist is calling it "a return to form," which I guess means he's trying to be serious and not silly this time. I mean, I like him silly too, guys. Anyway PA stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.
sold for a big pile of beans, too. I guess his character is addicted to porn, so my hopes are high for JGL touching himself scenes!
--- Beats Off - And speaking of the dirty stuff at Sundance, word is on the street that Daniel Radcliffe has plenty of man on man action in Kill Your Darlings, where he plays Allen Ginsberg. Bringing you the news to know, I am!
--- Leaks This - I wasn't all that curious about the Julian Assange movie except I like Bill Condon well enough (Gods and Monsters, of course) and Benedict Cumberbatch is swell. But now! Now this is different! Carice Van Houten has joined the cast - she'll play a journalist who becomes the spokesperson for Assange. So I am all in. Carice for life.
--- By A Nose - Have you been reading The Film Experience's 10 Year Anniversary Celebration of Stephen Daldry's film The Hours? It's some must read stuff if you're a fan of the movie. I rewatched it this past weekend, first time I'd seen it in several years - I really do love it.
--- Outback Again - Wolf Creek 2 started filming today! Wolf Creek 2 started filming today! (thanks Glenn).
