Trailer: Big Eyes

After years of tackling bizarre films about scissor-handed bondage enthusiasts, apes in space, Dracula and other monsters, almost all exclusively starring Johnny Depp, Tim Burton has turned over a new leaf. Title aside, Big Eyes is being billed as Tim Burton’s most “normal” movie since Big Fish, which, if you recall, still featured a giant and a witch.

Sans monsters and Depp, the movie is based on the real-life story of an artist (Amy Adams) whose husband (Christoph Waltz) took credit for her work in ’50s/60s-era San Francisco.

Amy Adams For Vanity Fair, January 2014

Amy Adams Vanity fair coverAmy Adams gets straight to the point (and half-naked) in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. Spreading holiday cheer with candy canes and signature ginge minge at famed celebrity hangout Chateau Marmont, Adams tells VF that she is “not pregnant” or looking to get married anytime soon to longtime boyfriend/fiancé Darren Le Gallo.

“I know he’s completely capable and lovely, and beautiful, and offers something I could never hope to offer just in the nature of his being,” Adams says.

Trailer: Man of Steel

I have many fears about the new Man of Steel movie with Henry Cavill. For one, it’s Superman…

He flies around the earth without the help of a suit (Iron Man), webs (Spider-Man) or gadgets (Batman) wearing his underwear on the outside of his clothes like a child. Second, no one can recognize him without his glasses because he was created in 1933 when cheeseball sh*t like that was a commodity. (There’s a reason there isn’t an Aquaman movie outside of the fictional universe known as Entourage.)

It’s hard to realistically translate his story to film in 2013 because of all the flying, the glasses and the newspaper thing. People under the age of 50 do not read newspapers unless they’re doing heroin under a bridge and one just happens to be lying around. CLICK for a pic of Henry Cavill’s indestructible bulge…

Movie Trailer: “On The Road”

Check out the book-to-movie trailer for Jack Kerouac’s iconic beatnik novel, On The Road, published in 1957. It stars Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Garrett Hedlund, Viggo Mortensen and Sam Riley as the story’s narrator, Sal Paradise.

The quote: “The only people for me are…the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars,” inspired Katy Perry to write “Firework.”  Continue reading “Movie Trailer: “On The Road””
