It’s Memorial Day, and since I’m off work, it feels like a good day to talk about movie stuff. Here’s the latest movie news that’s got me excited.
1. Happy Christmas Trailer
Look, not everyone is going to love a mumblecore movie. But I loved Joe Swanberg’s Drinking Buddies, so I’m thrilled to see him re-team with Anna Kendrick in Happy Christmas, due out this June. It’s about a screw-up (Kendrick) who moves in with her brother, his wife, and their kid. It looks pretty good, though. It’s got a great cast.
2. Veronica Mars is getting a web spin-off
It will star Dick (Ryan Hansen) and will be something like 6-8 ten-minute segments. I guess I’m just sort of wondering, why?
I…think this is a mistake. (THR)
3. Interstellar Trailer
This is Christopher Nolan’s follow-up to the Batman franchise, and it’s definitely getting a lot of attention. Basically the world is out of food and we need to leave. A pilot and a ragtag crew volunteer to figure out the whole interstellar space travel thing. The film stars a bunch of people and is out in November. I will see it, despite legitimately hating Matthew McCoughnahey.
4. Magic Mike 2 is a Thing Happening
For whatever reason ($$$$$). Steven Soderbergh won’t direct it (smart), but he will serve as cinematographer (less smart). Whatever. I just can’t. (Screen Rant)
5. Third Person Trailer
The film seems to star a ton of people, including Liam Neeson, James Franco, and Mila Kunis, and is about three different love stories? At any rate, it looks interesting.
