Better late

I have a ton of catching up to do, but I slipped into a research/rewrite/productivity rabbit hole and didn't want to come out for a few days. So, here is several days' worth of linkspam, although I tried to stick to the essentials:


The New Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Trailer, because I know my readership:

Studio Canal and Working Title have released the new international trailer for director Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, starring Gary Oldman, Ciaran Hinds, Jared Harris, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong and Svetlana Khodchenko. Opening in North American theaters on November 18, the movie is an adaptation of John Le Carre’s seminal cold war best-seller. Set in the aftermath of the cold war, the thriller tells the tale of a spy-hunt within the highest echelons of the British Secret Intelligence Service.

The UK Trailer for Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus. Related: Ralph Fiennes to direct ‘The Invisible Woman,’ the story of Charles Dickens’s affair with actor Nelly Ternan.

Oscar winner Colin Firth tries out a Southern accent in an exclusive clip from 'Main Street.'

International Trailer for Cannes Hit 'We Need to Talk About Kevin.'

The New Trailer for Roland Emmerich's Anonymous: "Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare?" I have no idea how Emmerich'll blow up a landmark in this one. But you know he will.

Mark Ruffalo and Amanda Seyfried Eye Now You See Me: "Already set to star Jesse Eisenberg and Melanie Laurent, Now You See Me pits a crack FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances, showering the profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law. Ruffalo will play the head FBI Agent with Seyfried an expert at building the criminal team's 'magical' devices."

Two New Hunger Games Images Beat Up Katniss And Peeta; Steven Soderbergh Is Doing Second Unit Shooting On 'Hunger Games':

Considering how ridiculously tight the timeline is on the film—it’s due in theaters in just over seven months—getting Soderbergh to help out is a smart choice. The director is already known to work very, very quickly. How fast? Earlier this year, Matt Damon recounted that during the “Contagion” shoot, Soderbergh would be editing the day’s work into a final cut shape after filming had wrapped each day. “Steven would have his headphones on, sitting at his laptop. And in about 20 minutes he’d cut together the day’s work. ‘OK,’ he’d say, pull his headphones off and turn the computer around and show us, right there, what we’d shot that day and how it would look on the big screen when the movie comes out. THAT FAST. He’s a FREAK,” Damon said.

We have to say, we pretty much didn’t care at all about “The Hunger Games” until now.

You be the Judge: '30 Minutes or Less' Filmmakers Claim Ignorance to True Story that Inspired the Film; '30 Minutes Or Less' And The Problem Of Tragedy As Comedy. I have a really, really hard time believing that they didn't get this idea from the news story itself. I knew about the "pizza bomber." It was a big thing on the news at the time. And the initial setup for the movie? A smidge too close, IMO.
