It’s about time for another movie news and blather post, so here is the movie news that had me all a-twitter this week.
1. American Hustle Trailer
I wouldn’t necessarily go for something like this normally, but it’s got Jennifer Lawrence in it, and it was directed by David O. Russell, so here it is. How awesomely bad is Bradley Cooper’s hair?
2. A bunch of people joined Kristin Wiig’s new movie
In casting news, a bunch of people, including Wes “Wanna see the most beautiful thing I ever filmed?” Bentley, Joan Cusack, and Alan Tudyk have joined up with Wiig in a new movie called Welcome to Me. The movie is about a woman with dissociative personality disorder who wins the lottery and spends her money on a cable access talk show about herself. Sold! (THR)
3. Bad Milo! Redband Trailer
If you like Ken Marino a lot, you might have already heard about this one. The movie is about a demon that springs out of Ken Marino’s butt whenever he feels stressed. I can’t believe that’s a sentence I just wrote, but there you go. I’m not sure about this one, but I do like Marino a whole heck of a lot, so I guess we’ll see. This one is NSFW, obviously.
4. Ellen Degeneres will host the 2014 Oscars.
I mean, whatever. She’s likable enough. It’ll be fine. Meh. (THR)
5. A Teacher Trailer
This one is about a teacher who sleeps with one of her teenage students, and is sure to be upsetting. But it’s getting good buzz, and it’s going to be a title to look for on demand, so watch for it this fall. It’s also only 75 minutes, which is astoundingly short in today’s world of overstuffed big blockbusters that clock in at over two hours.
What movie news are you excited about this week?
